Follow-Up to "When Complacency Is Complicity"
Preparing Your Children for the One True Fairy Tale
A recent article I wrote on the late-term abortion controversy in our culture began trending and subsequently led to a wealth of feedback. Although it’s impossible for me to answer every individual question and critique, I have some follow up thoughts that I think are warranted, particularly as the abortion debate continues to intensify and is sure to be a central issue in the 2020 elections.
As I started writing my response, three separate ones began to emerge.
When Complacency Is Complicity
To Harry Potter, or not to Harry Potter: that is the question.
Who's Afraid of Halloween?
The United States is one of only seven countries that allows for elective abortions after 20 weeks (the point where it is conclusively proven that unborn babies feel pain). In fact, our federal law allows for abortions through the stage of viability (22-24 weeks) all the way up to the birth canal of a full-term mother. And this past week, in particular, the often-ignored reality of late-term abortion became front and center for all to see.
What's the Right School for Your Child?
Should Christians participate in Halloween?
Subversive White Privilege
As many of you know, our session voted for me to serve as Trinity’s interim Head of School for this academic year. While I am excited about this opportunity and trust the Lord is using it, there is one question, in particular, that has given me caution: What does this communicate to the families of TCPC that have not chosen Trinity as the best option for their children?
In Love with Donald Trump
I have spent most of my life ignorant of racism. On a personal level, I was certainly naïve to my own prejudice. But on a cultural level, it was more than naivety; it was blindness.
Please Do Not Let This Die
What if evangelicals (or any tribe, for that matter) aren’t primarily compelled by what they believe but instead by what they love?
So Much for Civilized Culture
What can we do to stop abortion? There are many answers to that question but the most important is to not let our culture forget about abortion.
Do not be deceived, America. Lurking in the shadows of our smug culture is one of the cruelest practices this world has ever known. Perhaps we aren’t sacrificing our children to the sun god, but we are sacrificing our children to the god of profit, convenience, secular ideology, and whatever other motivations have given way to this barbaric practice.
