    If #lovewins why are heads continuing to roll? Mankind would love to see ‘love really win’.

    Unfortunately, in the English language there is only word to describe love which constricts the definition and undermines the power of love . Alternatively,the Greek language offers a much better definition of love and by that definition the correct hashtag to be used would be #sexwins.

    Your STRONG bias is showing, and it’s eroding the credibility of RNS. Parents in NC “FLIPPED OUT” bc there’s a lot more to that story than your slighting summary provides.

    The AP story is written so the reader will sympathize with the poor teacher, but in fact the woman behind this all is a MAJOR advocate for using elementary schools to brainwash children.

    They need fresh young un-diseased bodies.

    Christians are their only obstacle to that quest.

    Well, the news is certainly not all good. But your writing about the news stories is fine. I love the sharp needle even if it is poked into my own eye. Keep it up.

    As I understand it the Apostle Paul advocated marriage especially for those who found it difficult to control their sexual impulses. He was thinking of heterosexual impulses, of course. However, if this is your principle justification for marriage, as in Paul’s case, then you must accept it for the homosexual who has difficulty controlling his or her impluses.
