Screwtape Sounds Off on Same-Sex Marriage

What might C.S. Lewis' Uncle Screwtape, say to his deviously devilish disciple about recent developments on same-sex "marriage"? See his very clever letter in the article below, Screwtape Sounds Off on Same-Sex Marriage.

For resources and material on the redefinition of marriage, please see the Evangelical Fellowship of Canada's (EFC's) powerpoint presentation on defending marriage. Also, read the EFC's newsletter, Canada Watch. You will find out how you can contact your MP to express your support for the traditional definition of marriage (a union between one man and one woman).

Helping others is an art. To be most effective, we need to know the steps involved (see Being An Advocate). But sometimes inadvertently we can take on more than we can handle, as did a group of Canadian teens on a mission trip in Thailand. When disaster struck, they were among the first to help with a task few could do—recovering victims' bodies (see Canadian Teens Help with Recovery Efforts in Thailand).

For these, and other good articles, like Barbara Kay's Academic Freedom is Under Attack, and Susan Martinuk's comment on the media's need to refer to Scott Peterson's unborn baby as a "child" rather than a "fetus" (see When a Fetus Becomes a Child), click on the headlines below.

Blessings in Christ,
