1. “Lutherans Elect First Openly Homosexual ‘Bishop’” – The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America elects its first homosexual bishop. (Christian News)

“The vice of the sodomites is an unparalleled enormity,” Lutheran founder Martin Luther once stated, according to Ewald Martin Plass’ book What Luther Says: An Anthology. “It departs from the natural passion and desire, planted into nature by God, according to which the male has a passionate desire for the female. Sodomy craves what is entirely contrary to nature.” “Whence comes this perversion? Without a doubt it comes from the devil,” he continued. “After a man has once turned aside from the fear of God, the devil puts such great pressure upon his nature that he extinguishes the fire of natural desire and stirs up another, which is contrary to nature.” – Heather Clark quoting Martin Luther, Christian News

4. “Wanting a Mom and a Dad” – Eric Metaxas on the testimony of Dr. Robert Oscar Lopez, a bisexual, who was raised by lesbian parents, filing an amicus brief to the U.S. Supreme Court against the redefining of marriage. (BreakPoint Commentaries)

“One man who knows a little about this first-hand is Dr. Robert Oscar Lopez, who teaches at California State University at Northridge. Lopez, who says he’s bi-sexual, was raised by his lesbian mother and her partner. And while he’s for civil unions, he’s against redefining marriage. At “Public Discourse,” a website run by the Witherspoon Institute, Lopez writes of the great professional risk he took when he and Doug Mainwaring filed an amicus brief with the Supreme Court. Risky, because Lopez knows how vicious homosexual activists can sometimes be when anyone disputes their claims. Lopez is speaking out in part because he was asked to do so by others raised by same-sex partners, but who fear the repercussions of going public with their feelings. “Contrary to what the gay lobby claims, Lopez writes, children raised by same-sex parents “deeply feel the loss of a father or mother, no matter how much we love our gay parents.” These children know they are “powerless to stop the decision to deprive them of a father or mother,” he adds. And this decision comes with serious and often permanent consequences. For instance, they “feel disconnected from the gender cues of people around them,” and long for a role model of the opposite sex. While they love the people who raised them, they experience anger at their decision to deprive them of one or both biological parents—and “shame or guilt for resenting their loving parents.” – Eric Metaxas, Breakpoint Commentaries
