“We Are Kidding Ourselves If We Think We Yet Live in a Tolerant, Liberal Society”


After pressure, Tim Farron, the leader of the British Liberal Democrats, has resigned on Wednesday saying, “To be a political leader, especially of a progressive liberal party in 2017, and to live as a committed Christian, to hold faithfully to the Bible’s teaching has felt impossible”, The Guardian reported. Farron said about himself, “I seem to be the subject of what I believe and who my faith in is.”

An Evangelical Anglican, Farron was repeatedly asked, whether as a Christian he believed homosexuality was a sin. He denied. Then, The Guardian dug up a 2007 interview, in which Farron said abortion was “wrong”. He recanted. But this was not enough.

Faaron’s conclusion, “We are kidding ourselves if we think we yet live in a tolerant, liberal society.”

Southern Baptist Church: We Will Never Stop Fighting Abortion and Planned Parenthood

JUN 15, 2017

The Southern Baptist Convention is standing strong for the rights of unborn babies, leader Russell Moore said this week.

Moore is the president of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC), the public policy arm of the Christian denomination, one of the largest in the world. The convention’s annual meeting was this week.

On Wednesday, Moore released his annual report at the convention, explaining that protection of human life has been a top priority in the past year, the Baptist Press reports.

Specifically, Moore said the ERLC has focused on supporting efforts to defund the abortion chain Planned Parenthood of billions of taxpayer dollars.

“And over the last year, if there is one thing that has become more clear, it is that Planned Parenthood is no friend to women, no friend to children and no friend to life and human dignity,” Moore said. “[W]e live in an age in which our own government subsidizes the piracy and grave-robbing of defenseless infants who have no voice at all.”

He said ERLC is educating legislators and the public about the abortion industry through campaigns, the Evangelicals for Life conference in January and other means, according to the report.
