Christianity questions that cannot be answered
People in same-sex relationships are still welcome in the Presbyterian Church, but “speak the truth we must,” and refuse to administer the sacraments, a former moderator has said. Rev Dr Stafford Carson was commenting on Friday night after the Presbyterian general assembly formally adopted a policy that means those in a same-sex relationship cannot be full members of the church.The decision means they will not be able to have children baptised for example, “Obviously people in same-sex relationships will be required to think about how their lifestyle matches with the clear position of the church on marriage,” Dr Carson said.“In the debate today I was aware that this is a highly sensitive issue. People are almost wanting to say two things – ‘Yes, we believe what Jesus taught about marriage and we want to affirm that,’ and yet we also want to say to people whose lives don’t match with that, ‘we still love you, and we are still … [Read more...] about Same-sex couples welcome in Presbyterian Church – but cannot be full members
opinion Jason Sattler Opinion columnist Published 7:15 p.m. UTC May 23, 2018 What isn’t President Trump afraid of? Forget going under oath to testify for the special counsel investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election. Trump even refuses to go on camera to be interviewed, unless the interviewer can pass for a giddy member of his fan club. Since Trump told NBC News’ Lester Holt that he was thinking about “this Russia thing with Trump and Russia” when he fired FBI Director James Comey on May 11, 2017, Trump has only consented to be interviewed on television 15 times. “He has given 11 interviews to Fox News and Fox Business, one to Christian Broadcasting Network’s Pat Robertson, one to Trinity Broadcasting Network’s Mike Huckabee, one to CNBC’s Joe Kernen, and one to ITV’s Piers Morgan,” reported John Kerr and Dina Radtke of Media Matters for America.

Belgian politician, Bart De Wever, was in London last Wednesday to receive the Edmund Burke Award. The award is given each year to honour the politician who throught their career has done the most to advance the Burkean philosophy; the principles of private property, open competition, individual liverty, national sovereignty, sound money, low taxes, parliamentary supremacy, and free trade. De Wever holds two powerful positions: He is the mayor of Antwerp, and the leader of the New Flemish Alliance (N-VA). In 2010, De Wever presided over his party’s victory in the federal elections, which saw N-VA becoming the largest party in both Flanders and Belgium as a whole. Shortly before the ceremony, De Wever sat down with New Europe Editor, Alexandros Koronakis to talk about the present and future of Belgium, the European Union, and the conservative movement. De Wever is not known for bland rhetoric, or soft political positions. A few years ago he received a bullet in the post from an … [Read more...] about Looking for alliances that redefine the European political landscape
Police officers could be routinely armed in parts of the UK to respond to terror attacks and major incidents, it has been revealed. Police chiefs said the radical step is being considered for areas that cannot be reached quickly enough by dedicated armed response vehicles (ARVs), after it emerged that a government recruitment target has been missed. The controversial prospect of arming officers in remote areas, or giving then easy access to guns, will be opposed by many and prompt concerns that core principles of British policing are being undermined.
