Sorry, But We Won’t Rewrite the Bible for Gays and Lesbians

TownHall Latest columns - 14 min 11 sec ago
In response to my open letter to Isaac Archuleta, who describes himself as a bisexual Christian, Richard S. posted a lengthy comment on my personal Facebook page, including this statement: The logical conclusion to your theology (gays can change and if they don't it must be because they don't have faith or are deceived) is extremely damaging to the souls of gay people. That was the point of Isaac's letter. No amount of nice words will erase the damage. Only honest reconsideration of your theology will bring healing. Please don't discount/deny the faith of your gay brothers and sisters. They have much to contribute to the church. 2016-06-27T09:25:00-04:00 2016-06-28T01:35:18Z Michael Brown

By All Means, Let’s Vote On These Commonsense Gun Laws For The Children!

TownHall Latest columns - 14 min 11 sec ago
All of America, by which I mean all of the liberal media gimps in New York and Washington, cooed and quivered in climactic contentment to the House Democrats recent civil rights protest in which the House Democrats protested against civil rights. And the Dems were totally sincere about it perish the thought that it was some kind of tacky performance art designed to fundraise from the aging Aquarians, the Constitution-hating juice box hipsters, and the bitter, unfulfilled, unloved ex-wives who make up the non-welfare drawing bulk of the Democrat Party. No, it was totally for the children. 2016-06-27T00:01:00-04:00 2016-06-28T01:35:18Z Kurt Schlichter
