I Thought There Was A Simple Solution To An Unwanted Pregnancy, But I Was Wrong

Last edited 15th June 2016

When I became accidentally pregnant as a single 25-year-old, I lost a few of my closest friends. But not for the reasons you might think. As open-minded, self-proclaimed "non-judgmental" gals, they didn't judge me for engaging in casual sex and consequently getting knocked up. But a couple of them did mind that after discovering my pregnancy, I descended into a self-pitying pit of depression so profound that it threatened to completely unravel the future I'd worked so hard to create for myself.

Last edited 16th May 2016

The growing influence of Islam in the UK combined with a redefinition to allow homosexuals to marry makes a push for legal polygamy more likely. In a recent article in The Conversation, a Muslim lawyer argue that this is a cause that feminists should champion. Zainab Naqvi, a visiting lecturer at the University of Birmingham, pointed out that the traditional definition of marriage in English law as “the voluntary union for life of one man and one woman to the exclusion of all others” is no longer valid.

Same-sex marriage is uniting Evangelicals and Catholic

Last edited 10th May 2016

One surprising effect of the rise of same-sex marriage in the United States may be a convergence between evangelicals and the Catholic Church. The best evidence for this is a recent book by Albert Mohler, president of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, and one of the nation’s most prominent Evangelical thinkers. In We Cannot Be Silent: Speaking truth to a culture redefining sex, marriage, & the very meaning of right & wrong, he tackles the challenge of same-sex marriage. From a scriptural point of view, the idea seems obviously wrong, even abhorrent, but many Christians are swimming with the tide. In a significant theological shift, Dr Mohler makes two surprising proposals for his evangelical readers. First, that evangelicals need to use arguments based on natural law. And second, that Catholics got it right on contraception and that the evangelicals got it wrong.
