If they would condemn both such acts and those who make excuses for such inclinations, that would be sufficient. Agree completely otherwise with the video maker.

If you love to listen to the Cold Case Christianity podcast, as I do, then you know that in a recent episode, J. Warner Wallace mentioned a blog post on an atheistic blog that clearly delineated the implications of an atheistic worldview. He promised he was going to write about it and link to the post, and he has now done so.
Here is the whole the whole thing that the atheist posted:
“[To] all my Atheist friends.
Let us stop sugar coating it. I know, it’s hard to come out and be blunt with the friendly Theists who frequent sites like this. However in your efforts to “play nice” and “be civil” you actually do them a great disservice.
We are Atheists. We believe that the Universe is a great uncaused, random accident. All life in the Universe past and future are the results of random chance acting on itself…

LOL, ya gotta laugh. :)
One of Ottawa’s notorious teen pimps jailed last year for her role in a ring that beat, drugged and forced girls as young as 13 into prostitution is in trouble with the law again.
The girl, described by jailers as a model inmate who made a “180-degree turn”, has been arrested on two counts of crack-cocaine trafficking and one count of proceeds of crime.
The girl, now 18, was released from youth jail in 2014 after serving seven months for her part in what a judge called a vile enterprise. She was sentenced to three years but after being credited for pre-sentence time served, she served only seven months.
The girl, a one-time class valedictorian and cheerleader, told her probation officer that she wanted to go to university upon release and had a healthy RESP to pay for it. In youth jail, the girl made school a priority and started getting 80s again.
One youth jail teacher reported that the teen pimp was a “pleasure to have in the classroom.” The girl took at least 16 programs in jail, from financial literacy to anger management. Her probation officer reported that she had “significantly matured,” according to 2014 court filings.
A jail official said she showed compassion and leadership. In his glowing account, the youth jail official described the teen pimp and child pornographer as “helpful, thoughtful, engaging, extremely intelligent, and someone who makes friends fast. He also mentioned the convict’s great sense of humour and “infectious smile.”
He went on to say she was an asset to youth-jail programs, and reported that staff continually recognized her as caring and supportive. In another fawning account, a male jail official reported that she was “rounding out to be a very nice young lady.”
No matter how much her jailers thought of her during her time in jail, she couldn’t stand it and described it as “horrible” in a pre-sentence report. She told authorities she didn’t like jailers “controlling every aspect of your life” and complained that she didn’t have any friends inside.
The convicted teen pimp, now facing charges of selling crack-cocaine, told her jailers that she had nothing in common with her fellow inmates, describing them “as drug addicts from the North.”
She said she found it interesting to talk to them but that their experiences with hard drugs sounded “scary” and she couldn’t relate. The girl, who pleaded guilty to prostitution recruiting charges, luring and child pornography, was arrested on drug trafficking charges in August and is scheduled to appear in court on her fresh charges in October.
Her release in 2014 was supported by a probation officer who said she would benefit from a structured life, plus counselling for an “adequate time period.”
At the trial, court heard that one of the teenage girls thought about killing herself and another left town because she didn’t feel safe in Ottawa, where she was beaten, drugged and forced to have sex with johns. The mother of one victim said the crimes “changed our lives forever.”
She told court at the teen pimp’s sentencing that her daughter was too afraid to go to school, and felt “worthless and disgusting.”
Amazing how so many people were fooled by her, eh?
She made two ‘180 degree turns’, instead of only one, alas…

The Kendrick brothers are masters of the head fake. In Fireproof they ended the film with the surprise revelation that the original Love Dare was done by a woman! We learn that Caleb’s mother submitted to her husband, and that Caleb’s father was won over without a word by his wife’s respectful and pure conduct. This plot twist is pointed to by defenders of the film as proof that the moral of the movie (saving your marriage through submission) is gender neutral. In theory, they explain, submission in marriage could apply to wives as well. What the defenders miss is that this surprise plot twist is the Kendrick brothers being astonishingly open that they have inverted Scripture.
I have not yet seen the movie War Room, but the defenders of the latest Kendrick brothers movie are pointing to a similar headfake. War room they argue is really the Kendrick brothers…

An interesting examination of the situation in two subcultures, notwithstanding the usual prog biases of the journalist.

That’s the one thing that always came up when I’d discuss theories on declining marriage rates or the rise of the hookup culture with my friends or family.
“Couldn’t it just be that times have changed?” people would ask.
Times have changed, and that is a good thing—especially the fading-away of cruel taboos that once stigmatized women who engaged in premarital sex or bore children out of wedlock.
Thing is, times change for a reason. The values question assumes that sexual mores loosen naturally from conservative to liberal. In reality, these values have ebbed and flowed throughout history, often in conjunction with prevailing sex ratios.
Multiple studies show that…
