Our focus is to bring you alternate viewpoints to what is provided on one-eyed and misleading websites.
Initially this site was going to be about a wide variety of topics, and maybe it will still transform into that eventually, but so far there is a theme that has developed – the gay one. We hold to similar lines of thinking on this topic as expressed by Allan Edwards, Christopher Yuan, Colby Adams, David Bennett, Ed Shaw, Grady Smith, Griffin Whiteley, Jaye Thomas, Joe Dallas, Linda Seiler, Matthew Aaron, Matt Moore, Michael Glatze, Nick Roen, Wesley Hill, Living Out, Ty Wyss, and the True freedom Trust. And while not Catholic, we find inspiration from some Catholic angles on this too, eg Joseph Prever, Doug Mainwaring and Pursuit of Truth Ministries. We join with the 17,000+ signatories of the Nashville Statement on sexuality.
We are Bible based but include the experiences of modern people in shaping our perceptions and ideologies. This means for example, that in regards to homosexuality, we recognise that attempts to turn straight or to just be biblically compliant, are sometimes far from easy. Not everyone likes our approach, be they liberal or conservative. We have been blocked from commenting on the facebook page of Alvin McEwen, James R White and of the facebook pages for the groups 1,000,000 Supporting Traditional Marriage, The Bible Is Against Homosexuality, The Bible Condemns Sodomy, Heterosexual Awareness Month, Christians Tired of Being Misrepresented, Progressive Methodists, United Church in Australia and Restored Hope Network. We have also been banned on Susan Cottrell’s FreedHearts blog, New Ways Ministry blog and on the website Lifesite News. Even comments (largely just referring to statistics) we pasted on the blog of Rachel Held Evans, were removed. On the other hand, we have been cited – favourably or otherwise – by Anglican Mainstream, Christians Tired of Being Misrepresented, Dr Michael Brown, Gay Christian Movement Watch, Inquisitive Christianity and ThinkProgress.
If you have returned to this site after some time, and thought to yourself “I thought this used to say something different”, then you may be right. Posts on this site are updated based on new information that comes to light. When this happens, text may be added, text may be deleted, and/or aspects may be reworded. This may be an unorthodox approach, but there is no point in keeping details listed that we no longer feel are as accurate or worded as best they can be!
Please comment on individual articles on this site – see the options under the article titles, or the comment box underneath.
We are open to networking with other sites. If you would like us to write for your site, or if you have tips on matters that would fit with this site, please let us know.
