Interfaith Marriage Conference: “Complementarity of Man and Woman”

November 8, 2014 ( – On November 17-19, 2014, the Catholic Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith will host a colloquium in Vatican City in cooperation with the Pontifical Council for the Family, the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue, and the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity. The title of the colloquium will be the Complementarity of Man and Woman in Marriage. It will feature representatives from 14 religious traditions, including Jewish, Islamic, Buddhist, Hindu, Jaina Shasana, Taoist and Sikh, as well as Roman Catholics and professing Christians.

The event has been a year in the making since it was first proposed to Pope Francis by Cardinal Mueller in November 2013. It is being conducted in conjunction with many well-known leaders of faith like Russell Moore, the president of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, Rick Warren, the leader of the Saddleback megachurch, and President Henry B. Eyring, First Counselor in the First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

In a blog post entitled “Why I am going to the Vatican,” Russell Moore wrote, “I hope that this gathering of religious leaders can stand in solidarity on the common grace, creational mandate of marriage and family as necessary for human flourishing and social good.”

The LDS Church issued this statement about the interfaith conference:

At this time of rapidly declining moral values and the challenges to traditional family structures and relationships throughout the world, we are pleased to unite with the Catholic Church, other fellow Christian denominations and other world religions in standing firm and speaking clearly about the sanctity of marriage between a man and a woman.

The objective of the conference is to “examine and propose anew the beauty of the relationship between the man and the woman, in order to support and reinvigorate marriage and family life for the flourishing of human society.”

More information can be found on the colloquy website is, which has released several videos like the one below. There you can find information about the agenda, the presenters, the films, and media credentialing.

Ben Carson: If the Bible is Wrong on Gay Marriage, Why Isn’t Wrong on Everything?

August 10, 2014 ( – This is a great discussion on gay marriage, and it asks the crucial question: If you don’t think that gay “marriage” is a sin as the Bible clearly states, then why do you believe the rest of the Bible? The question is especially pertinent to ministers who openly promote homosexuality and perform marriage ceremonies for homosexuals.

As noted elsewhere on, the Bible is explicit and unequivocal in stating that homosexuality is a grave sin, numerous times. The Gospels also reiterate, the point that goes back to the Book of Genesis, that marriage is the lifelong union of one man and one woman.

Thus, in Matthew 19:4-6, we read

And He answered and said to them, “Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning ‘made them male and female,’ and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.”

This marriage relationship is also the model for Christ and his Church, as Ben Carson points out. This can not be taken lightly by anyone who truly believes the Bible.

Anti-Gay Hate Scams, Hoaxes, and Fabrications Part 2

( – In an era when Christians around the world have universal love for everyone, it can be difficult to find someone to substantiate the media-created stereotype of Christian hatred and oppression. Why wait? These days, resourceful gay activists don’t mope around hoping for discriminatory acts to occur. Instead, they take matters into their own hands and create their own stories to help perpetuate their anti-Christian bigotry. These stories will make you swell with gay pride as you discover the depths of depravity to which some will sink for the cause of homosexuality. Ah, now this is tolerance!

  1. Joseph Baken’s Somersault Assault

  2. Missoula, MT, August 9, 2012 – Joseph Bakken went out to the Missoula Club on a Saturday night to celebrate his 22nd birthday. While there, he announced that he was gay and asked for directions to a gay bar. Three hours later, he was on the phone with the police at 4:30 a.m. He claimed that a man lured him outside with a smoke, where three men jumped him and beat him up while calling him a “fa__ot.”

    Bakken’s face was badly beaten. Pictures of his face appeared on Wipe Out Homophobia’s Facebook page and gay outrage erupted all over the web. Bakken’s beaten face generated half of a million likes. Later, cellphone video footage surfaced that showed Bakken attempting a back flip and landing on his face. Joseph Bakken was forced to admit his hoax and was charged with filing a false report.

  3. Alexandra Pennell’s Hate Notes to Herself

  4. NEW BRITAIN, Connecticut, July 2, 2012 – Originally reported in The Hartford Courant, the story of Alexandra Pennell, 19, involved a series of anti-gay notes that someone slid under the door of her room at Central Connecticut State University. Reports of the hate crimes sparked a campus ‘Solidarity Rally’ that drew hundreds of students out in support for Pennell. Pennell became an instantaneous star and gained the sympathy of numerous students on campus.

    The Campus police were eager to find the perpetrator and set up a hidden camera to catch the person in the act. Notes continued to arrive under Alexandra’s door, but the camera was mysteriously disabled before anyone could be caught. The Campus police became suspicious. They told Pennell that they had to take the camera away to get it fixed. That was when they secretly replaced the first camera with a second one. That one caught Alexandra Pennell in the act of sliding hate notes under her door. She was subsequently charged with several felonies and barred from the university system for five years.

  5. Quinn Matney Gets Burned . . . Twice

  6. Chapel Hill, NC, April 14, 2011 – Homosexual Freshman, Quinn Richardson Matney, 19, of Asheville was sitting on UNC_Chapel Hill’s campus minding his own business when some fellow walked up to him, called him a “f**king f*g,” said “here is a taste of hell,” and branded his arm with a hot metal object. (It is always fake Christians committing fake hate crimes.) In reality, Matney had burned himself, and his story was soon exposed as false.

    Perhaps the most interesting aspect of this story are the reactions to it. When the crime was first reported, Chancellor Holden Thorp pledged that the university’s public safety department “will bring the strongest possible charges against the attacker.” When the attacker was revealed to be none other than the homosexual victim himself, the LGBTQ Center held its forum anyway. They even got the Vice-Chancellor to apologize for not responding more quickly to this phony hate crime. As for Matney, his father asked the university not to press charges. So, what did Matney get for all of this? Counseling. The LGBTQ Center remained totally sympathetic to Matney, and why shouldn’t they be? He provided them with yet another opportunity to spread anti-Christian bigotry and further their gay agenda.

  7. Paul Marquardt’s Fake Beating

  8. Moorhead, MN, May 2, 2007 – Paul Marquardt, 23, from Edina, MN was a senior at Minnesota State University Moorhead when he was attacked by four men who shouted homosexual slurs at him and knocked him unconscious. For a whole day, he could not remember what had happened. Then suddenly, as he was sitting in class, it all came back to him. He remembered everything about the attack, but he still could not provide police with any details about the men. The blogger, High Tech Redneck Woman, knows Marquart personally, and states that he is “not the brightest bulb on the tree.”

    Inconsistencies emerged in Marquardt’s story. The more Paul Marquardt spoke, the more confused his story became. The Fargo-Moorhead Ten Percent Society was eager to exploit the crime stating, “As far as we know, this is the first recorded hate crime in the city of Moorhead.” They planned a rally to celebrate the attack, but were disappointed when Marquardt eventually settled on the story that no hate crime had taken place. Despondent, they reluctantly cancelled their outrage and rally. Oh well, better luck next time.

More to come . . .
