Picking back up the feature I started years ago where I highlighted different gleanings from the internet that I didn’t necessarily want to highlight in a single blog post.
There isn’t always a theme, but this week I wanted to highlight articles related to the tension between gay rights and religious liberty that we saw blow-up in Indiana over that state’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act.
- Greg Koukl at Stand to Reason’s blog lists three ways Christian wedding vendors can protect themselves when contacted about a same-sex wedding.
- Some what related, have you ever wondered why Christians get bad press? Adam Graham shares four reasons why Christians will never have good press (consistently at least) no matter how hard they try.
- Returning the favor: “If we are coerced into baking for events we disagree with, we will return the favor and use the funds of those we disagree with to fund the organizations they disagree with. If you are unhappy with this new policy or it conflicts with your own convictions about marriage, we invite you to take your business elsewhere.”
- If Apple can boycott Indiana, why can’t evangelicals boycott same-sex weddings?
- “…today we are seeing the full-out charge of a new kind of morality.“
- A panel on homosexuality and the church.
- Why would a Christian feel conscience bound to not be a part of a gay wedding?
- John Owen meets the sin of sexual transgression.
- Religious liberty is precisely what allows a pluralistic society to live together in peace.
- Owen Strachan has five takeaways from Frank Bruni’s attempt to bully Christians to accept homosexuality in the pages of the New York Times.
