Who will replace Russell Moore?:
A former Mark Driscoll disciple speaks out.
Justin Taylor and Denny Burk celebrate what they believe to be a “gotcha!” moment. Some of us evangelicals do understand Rigney’s view on empathy and reject it:

James Dobson on women in the military (from his FB page):
Perhaps you thought things cannot get any worse for our sweet land of liberty. Well, think again. America may soon be forcing our daughters, wives, and mothers to engage in mortal combat. Led by Democratic senators and a handful of Republicans, the Senate Armed Services Committee voted this past July to require women to register for the U.S. military draft. This abhorrent legislation – tucked away in the corners of a defense policy bill – defies common sense. How utterly absurd and shameful is an ideology that positions women to fight our wars! Not only is it morally despicable, it flies in the face of empirical data. You be the judge.
Hagee on “historical truth”:
Tony “Mulligan” Perkins on Biden’s vaccine mandate (from his FB page):
As many as 100 million Americans could be affected by the Biden administration’s new vaccine mandate. Many will lose their jobs, and this road will lead to an endless string of intrusive dictates that will have far-reaching consequences for civil liberties, conscience rights, religious freedom, human dignity, parental rights, and more. We are left to wonder: what else will the heavy hand of government under this president, or the next, compel Americans to do against their will or their moral conviction? Tonight, we discuss these concerns and pray for wisdom as we respond to these challenging and unprecedented times with which we have been entrusted by God.
