Younger = Gayer. More on Margin Creep.

August 16th, 2015 by Bookslinger

The margins have already begun to creep.   The article illustrates points that I’ve made in comments here and at Millennialstar.org. Especially how the changes start in the younger age cohorts and accelerate with each upcoming age group. (more…)

The Benedict Option: are We Losing Even Outwardly Committed Youth?

July 08th, 2015 by The Junior Ganymede

(Guest post from a correspondent, based on an email exchange that began before the Benedict Option post)

Has there been a discussion of how Mormons might meet the Benedict option? Is it possible to be Benedictines and missionaries? It’s a discussion the Mormons on the internet should be having if they have not yet. (more…)

A New Heaven and a New Earth

June 12th, 2014 by Zen

“With Christian or Jewish presuppositions, or indeed Muslim, then if you believe in what it says in Genesis 1 about God making heaven and earth—and the binaries in Genesis are so important—that heaven and earth, and sea and dry land, and so on and so on, and you end up with male and female. It’s all about God making complementary pairs which are meant to work together. The last scene in the Bible is the new heaven and the new earth, and the symbol for that is the marriage of Christ and his church. It’s not just one or two verses here and there which say this or that. It’s an entire narrative which works with this complementarity so that a male-plus-female marriage is a signpost or a signal about the goodness of the original creation and God’s intention for the eventual new heavens and new earth.”

Scholar NT Wright explains marriage, and gay marriage and scripture

Gay Marriage and Levels of Abstraction

February 05th, 2014 by G.

two men arguing

Pat: Gay marriage is a mistake because marriage is about children. Two men or two women can’t have children together accidentally or on purpose.

Mike: So if you’re infertile, you can’t get married?

Gay Marriage, Jeeves

January 17th, 2014 by Bertie

What ho, what ho, what ho!

As a sagacious and experienced man of the world, I am often called on to render my two bits on the events of the day. In recent years one’s interlocutors have been rather pressing on this matter of what is called, if I have the terms right, frolicsome marriage. One isn’t au courant on all the details, of course, but begging pardon for any blushes mantling maidenly cheeks, as Jeeves explained it to me the whole caboodle has to do with a matrimony where the conjugal relations suffer from a distinct lack of variety. Rather! It hardly seems likely, but he insists. Buttonhole the fellow if you want more information. (more…)

Equality and Homosexuality

October 10th, 2013 by Man SL

Gay men are equal to straight men. Same with gay women. That means the day will come when God will help them be everything they need to be so they can have a regular Adam and Eve marriage with children of their own. Gays may be born that way, but God won’t make them stay that way.

If they never could get married to the opposite sex, that would mean they weren’t equal to us.

Perfect Justice and Infinite Mercy

April 12th, 2013 by G.

Elder Christofferson preached Sunday that the aim of the gospel is to draw down “perfect justice and infinite mercy” from heaven. The phrase stuck with me. Perfect justice and infinite mercy. (more…)

The Chief Rabbi of France is French

February 13th, 2013 by G.

The Chief Rabbi of France has some keen insight into marriage and sexuality, if you can get over the frenchiness of his language, even in translation.

Porn Use Boosts Support for Same-Sex Marriage

February 12th, 2013 by Man SL

Keep this in mind when you get frustrated at the Godbeite Blog or other Bloggernacle sites for advocating gay marriage. Perhaps the poor dears can’t help it.
