Excluded

Light is Right Joe Campbell I’ve tried, really I have, but I can’t understand why, as a society, we discriminate so aggressively against homosexuals. Rare is he, or she, who at some point in life does not need help for mental, physical or spiritual disorders, if not all three. But when homosexuals need help, we deny or ignore afflictions that ought to be obvious to anyone, ... (Continue reading)

Despite education being a provincial responsibility, the Canadian federal government has issued guidelines on how to structure a sex education program.

HIV drug combo: game-changer or same old game?

HIV drug combo: game-changer  or same old game?

A new drug regimen could displace the single-minded promotion of condoms, which has dominated HIV/AIDS prevention efforts for the past three decades. Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) consists of daily doses of two antiretroviral drugs taken by people who are not currently infected with HIV. PrEP has several implications for the pro-life and pro-family movement. First, it would seem a boon in general to HIV-discordant married couples (where one spouse is infected ... (Continue reading)

A challenge for abundant life

In the January edition of The Interim we ran an article, "A challenge to abundant life," on the proper Christian approach to the issue of homosexuality, specifically in our interactions with individuals dealing with same-sex attraction.

A challenge for abundant life

In a recent video battle against gay activist/sex-advice columnist Dan Savage, Family Research Council president Tony Perkins quoted an old headline: “Dan Savage Explains Why He Started ‘It Gets Better’ Project: ‘When a gay teenager commits suicide, it’s because he can’t picture a life for himself that’s filled with joy,’ columnist tells MTV News.” Incredibly, Perkins used the image of that headline as part of an otherwise sound case against Savage.

The key issue is moral, not scientific. ... (Continue reading)
