Sterilizing Religious Freedom

Sterilizing Religious Freedom

The message is clear: Keep religion in church, and forget about parental rights. For the Chuck Colson Center for Christian Worldview, I’m John Stonestreet with The Point. With the HHS mandate now in effect, employee insurance plans across the nation must provide not only contraceptives but also sterilization services. And as Sabrina Gladstone at CNS News points out, children in…

What Culture Is and What It’s Not

What Culture Is and What It’s Not

If we don’t understand it, we won’t know what to do with it. For the Chuck Colson Center for Christian Worldview, I’m John Stonestreet with The Point. “Stay away from the world, or you’ll be corrupted." “God wants to save souls, not culture." “Why care about this world since it’s just going to be destroyed anyway?" These things we often…

A Women-Only City?


Both cultures get women wrong—but in completely different ways. For the Chuck Colson Center for Christian Worldview, I’m John Stonestreet with The Point. Recently on BreakPoint This Week, I spoke with sociologist Mark Regnerus about how the “sexual revolution" has cost women dearly by making sex cheap and men less willing to commit. When forces like pornography and contraception separate…

Are Boys Failing? Are We Failing Boys?


Still think there’s a war against girls? Stay tuned. For the Chuck Colson Center for Christian Worldview, I’m John Stonestreet with The Point. In a recent Washington Times piece, Janice Crouse argues that our culture is so centered on helping girls succeed that it’s destroying boys. The result is a generation of “male losers" who are less educated, less successful…

Whose Fault?

Whose Fault?

Marriage is a mess, and we made it. For the Chuck Colson Center for Christian Worldview, I’m John Stonestreet with The Point. In her post last Monday at Patheos.com, Rebecca Hamilton didn’t pull any punches. It may have been strong medicine, but it’s time we take it and face the hard truth about marriage in America.

No Dissent Allowed

No Dissent Allowed

Even B’s aren’t allowed to question LGBT claims. For the Chuck Colson Center for Christian Worldview, I’m John Stonestreet with The Point. Since sociologist Mark Regnerus published his study of children raised by homosexual parents, he’s been excoriated by the nation’s media and placed under investigation for “scientific misconduct." Why? His research suggest that same-sex parenting wasn’t as rosy as…

She Lived to Tweet About It

She Lived to Tweet About It

They had to stop to think about this? For the Chuck Colson Center for Christian Worldview, I’m John Stonestreet with The Point. Last week, a 19-year-old girl’s celebration nearly ended in death when she fell out of the “Flirting Flamingo��? party bus onto a busy Minneapolis interstate.

Overlooked Casualties

Overlooked Casualties

Her revolution had casualties. For the Chuck Colson Center for Christian Worldview, I’m John Stonestreet with The Point. If you think Playboy is just a girlie magazine, think again. Hugh Hefner learned his sexual philosophy at the feet of Alfred Kinsey, the discredited and personally broken sex researcher. Hef once said, “Playboy freed a generation from guilt about sex, changed some laws, and helped launch a revolution or two. Playboy is the magazine that changed America.?

When Floyd Lee Corkins entered the Family Research Council with a Chick-Fil-A bag in his hand and pistol in his pocket, his intent was to harm. Leo Johnson, an unarmed property manager, is credited for preventing that intent from becoming a…

Civil Disobedience


It may be that time, like it or not. For the Chuck Colson Center for Christian Worldview, I’m John Stonestreet with The Point. Two years ago, Chuck Colson recorded a Two-Minute Warning video suggesting that it was time for Christians to think through the issue of civil disobedience. It’s a scary phrase, but it shouldn’t be. The Civil Rights Movement…

Getting Jefferson Right

Getting Jefferson Right

The facts are always important—even when we don’t like them. For the Chuck Colson Center for Christian Worldview, I’m John Stonestreet with The Point. A few weeks ago, David Barton of Wall Builders and frequent guest of the Glenn Beck Show, published a book called “The Jefferson Lies: Exposing Myths You’ve Always Believed About Thomas Jefferson.��?

But He Didn’t Say It

But He Didn’t Say It

Before you quote this, think again… From the Chuck Colson Center of Christian Worldview, I’m John Stonestreet. About every other week I see the quote attributed to St. Francis of Assisi: "Preach the gospel. And if necessary, use words.? of course, as Christians, our actions should point to Jesus. There’s only two problems, said blogger Ed Stetser recently. First, St. Francis never said it and nothing we know about the life of this constant preacher suggests he would have.

Why We Need Others

Here’s one more thing I learned from Chuck. For the Chuck Colson Center for Christian Worldview, I’m John Stonestreet with The Point. I was speaking last week with a former professor of mine who had worked closely with Chuck Colson on a number of projects, most notably Evangelicals and Catholics Together. In fact, I remember as a student hearing from…

The Domino Effect


We should have seen this coming. Some did. For the Chuck Colson Center for Christian Worldview, I’m John Stonestreet with The Point. As the same-sex marriage debate continues, a practice long ago outlawed may be making a comeback: polygamy.
