While America’s enemies abroad are real, there is an increasing sense that the greatest danger to our Republic is the slow, corrosive weakening from within
Unless that national dialogue begins to address Hollywood’s broader addiction to objectification and sexualization, we risk perpetuating many of the far-reaching effects of Hollywood’s sexual harassment.
It appears that in-flight movies are becoming a new second-hand smoke.
Of all the lessons we might take from Tom Christofferson’s book, perhaps the one that would mean the most to Tom is how to love our LGBT family, friends and neighbors.
With the recent update of the “Mormon and Gay” website, now an official part of, there are even more resources to understand the intersection between same-sex attraction and religious belief and practice.

The U.S. is one of only seven countries in the world — including China, North Korea and Vietnam — that permit abortions after 20 weeks. This policy is a reflection of American politics and media, not the American people.
Abortion is a topic we would all prefer to avoid. But if we do not talk about it now, then when?
Unless overruled, divisive decisions like Obergefell v. Hodges should be followed out of respect for rule of law. But as a matter of moral opinion, it is just that, opinion.
