August 24 2017 By dvirtue Why patriarchy is the best solution for happy families and societies

His thesis, rigorously supported by academic studies and court records is that an intact family of mother and father is the safest environment for women and for children. The growth of sexual libertarianism means that the natural restraints against sexual harassment, child abuse, bullying, and the provision of the protection of women that were provided by codes of morality and by fathers in families have been removed.

August 23 2017 By dvirtue Getting Along, Despite Differences

And we have to say, that we who are followers of Jesus, enter this discussion in a mixed light. We are, and there is no question, the pioneers of freedom of conscience and religious freedom. From Tertullian (circa 155-240 AD) and Lactantius (circa 250-325 AD) right down through Roger Williams (1603-1683) and William Penn (1644-1718) and many of the greatest heroes of this issue, they were followers of Jesus.

Will it matter that she didn't? Doubtful ...

To recap: In late 2012, FITS broke the story of "rogue bishop" Mark Lawrence of Charleston, S.C. -- an Episcopal priest who was booted from the national church for refusing to adopt its views on gay marriage and the ordination of gay and female clergy.

August 22 2017 By dvirtue Hard truth about soft power

Yet this same Archbishop takes the leading role as the Episcopal Church of the Sudan is born, notwithstanding his complicity with the Church of England's accelerating drift from that apostolic Christianity which has sustained Sudanese Anglicans through much suffering.

August 21 2017 By dvirtue We All Have History

You see, we all have a history of things that we have done and, indeed, things that have been done to us through the course of our lives. That personal history has a continuing impact upon people's lives, albeit in different ways. Some of us drag the hurt and injuries with us throughout our lives. The scars are always on display for anyone who wishes to look. Others of us bury the hurt deep within ourselves.

August 16 2017 By dvirtue In The Guise of Peaceable Assembly

It was unbelievable to see the fighting explode with fisticuffs, tear gas, then become more horrible when a 20 year old Ohio man drove his car into the downtown crowd killing an innocent local paralegal and injuring 39 others.

This is no excuse. The knot heads, including out-of-town haters of the highest sort, amounted to 0.00001548percent of the 323.1 million American population. This is an insignificant number but invidiousness at its worst.

August 14 2017 By dvirtue Our most vulnerable girls pay sorely for our surrender to the Islamists

Now they've come for white, teenage, under class girls in Newcastle and we have still not learned our lesson -- we are still terrified of being labelled Islamophobic. A blind man in a dark room looking for a black cat can spot the common denominator among these despicable predators and their defenceless targets.

August 14 2017 By dvirtue The lesson of Anglicanism: liberalism will tear you apart

Anglicanism's real problem has always been a theological schizophrenia -- the result, perhaps, of it having formed to appease a lusty monarch rather than to preach a creed with clarity. Ask a hundred Anglicans what Anglicanism actually is and expect a hundred answers. The Church of England isn't, really, one Church at all. It's an Erastian umbrella organisation holding together, by virtue of the Crown, a huge range of competing theologies.
