Jerry Bowyer: Amazon Moves in a Chilling Direction

Amazon recently announced that it will no longer sell books by Dr. Joseph Nicolosi and others which help people deal with unwanted same-sex attraction.

With this, we’ve crossed a new boundary in the no-longer latent authoritarianism of the sexual revolution. In Judaism and Christianity, your nature is defined by God. In ancient Greek thought, it was defined by nature. Our modern on-going sexual revolution threw all of that aside and said that you define yourself, your will decides your identity.

But now even that restraint is being thrown off, and a one-way door is erected in its place. If you want to self-identify as gay, you can, and help is available. But if you want to self-identify as straight, the help window is slammed shut.

Amazon is moving in a chilling direction: from online book seller to online book censor.

Jerry Bowyer: A Critical Win at the High Court

The Supreme Court has decided that a cross memorializing the fallen of WWI can remain.

As important as the ruling is, the count might be even more so. The court voting 7-2—with Sotomayor and the aging Ruth Bader Ginsburg voting against allowing the stone monument in Maryland to remain.

Let’s be clear: Writing for the majority, Justice Alito argued that tearing down this cross would not be an act of religious neutrality, it would be an act of anti-religious destruction.

No sensible person thinks for a moment that allowing that cross to stand is an endorsement of Christianity. It was a beautiful tribute honoring the service and sacrifice of the fallen.

Justice Ginsburg has become a left-wing folk hero of sorts. She wanted to tear down a cross which the mothers of the fallen erected a century ago.

Thank goodness her voice was in the minority opinion.

Dan Proft: The Slaughter of Christian Innocents

“Christianity under attack? Sri Lanka church bombings stroke far-right anger in the West.”

That was the headline in the Washington Post the day after the world learned the Easter Sunday church bombers were radical Islamist terrorists.

It seems the Post isn’t sure if Christianity is under attack. But it is sure only the “far-right” is upset about the massacre of “Easter worshippers,” as they term them.

Historically, the Left has used perceived persecution to accrue power—so they are reticent to have Christians benefit from actual persecution, thus they use the label “Easter worshippers”—as if it’s a spring festival of sorts.

This is how identity politics works and it is at work in the coverage of the slaughter of Christian innocents.

Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and leading Democrats all used “Easter worshippers” language, generating much-deserved pushback.

No atrocity is so great as to prevent the Left’s pursuit of power.

Albert Mohler: Notre Dame Burns

It happened right before our eyes, the destruction of one of the most important architectural achievements of western civilization: The burning of Notre Dame Cathedral, that historic church right in the center of Paris.

What burned was not just a tremendous loss to architecture, it was a tremendous loss to western civilization, and it points to an even greater loss: A spiritual loss that came before the architectural loss.

The fact that the national symbol was also a cathedral was itself a reminder that you can’t tell the story of western civilization, you can’t even tell the story of the Reformation or the modern age without talking about the age of the cathedrals.

The architecture of Notre Dame cries out: Christianity is at the center of our civilization.

Perhaps the saddest moment for Parisians came with the fall of the iconic spire at the center of the cathedral—a spire pointing to the heavens, with a cross at the very top pointing to God and the reigning Jesus Christ.

Notre Dame Cathedral, before and after the fire, remains now a symbol of Europe’s loss of faith.

Albert Mohler: Criminalization of Orthodox Christianity?

Will pastors in the Netherlands who affirm biblical Christianity face criminal prosecution?

That may well be the case.

Back in 2017, a group of evangelical Christians concerned about the confusion of the age wrote and adopted a statement that became known as the Nashville Statement—affirming a biblical understanding of marriage and human sexuality. That statement was addressing issues that the church faces in modern America—but, of course, the situation is not merely American, it is increasingly worldwide.

That takes us to a recent headline from the Netherlands: 250 Christian leaders have signed the Nashville Statement. And–what is so ominous—the Dutch government prosecution service is deciding whether or not the very signing and publication of the Nashville Statement is actually a violation worthy of criminal prosecution.

Yes, it’s ominous: Merely publishing and signing this statement may be, as the Dutch prosecution services indicated, a criminal offense.
