Hobby Lobby and the morning after pill: a victory for religious liberty?

The Supreme Court yesterday ruled in favour of Hobby Lobby’s Christian owners who refused to offer employees morning after and week after pills as part of the company’s health insurance plans. In a landmark decision, justices ruled by a 5-4 majority that closely-held businesses can uphold religious objections which allo… 詳閱

Exodus of Christians from the Middle East is a tragedy and a blow to the basic pride of Arab Islamic civili

“It is a tragedy and a blow to the basic pride of Arab Islamic civilisation. It is one of the most horrific developments of recent years. If Islamic civilisation has anything to show for itself, it is its record of pluralism and coexistence. I said the other day that i… 詳閱

不是賢德,乃是勇士

箴言卅一章10-11節:才德的婦人(女能人)誰能得著呢?她的價值遠勝過珍珠。她丈夫心裡倚靠她… Moen博士指出,也許我們不肯直譯eshet-hayil為「女能人」是出於文化觀念的原因—-能幹的女人,沒有比男人差,甚至站在領袖的地位,不合傳統。但是翻譯「才德的婦人」,或「高尚品格的妻子」都不正確,因為Eshet-hayil是個勇士形象!希伯來文可以使人想到,這個婦人為公道而… 詳閱

Hobby Lobby 的滑坡會停在哪裡?

The reason it’s unlikely the Supreme Court would uphold a religious exemption for vaccinations or blood transfusions is not something intrinsic to those claims; it’s simply that Alito finds them weird.

當代基督教音樂太自我中心?

What has struck me pretty forcibly is how much of both the music and the Christian commentary on the stations that play the music indulge in an uber-personal and sentimental interpretation of the Christian message and experience. The relevance of the Christian message is focused squarely on the individual an… 詳閱

教會可如何重建婚姻上的分野?

The one bit of good news in all this is that marriage is comparatively strong among college-educated Americans. For this group, divorce has come down since the height of the divorce revolution in the late 1970s and early.. But the bad news, as I noted in a report calledWhen Marriag… 詳閱

體育神學

This is an odd conclusion, partly for an obvious reason: It puts sports outside rather than within creaturely existence, since creaturely existence is classically understood to be entirely directed toward God. In celebrating creatureliness, Harvey removes sport from the God-directedness that is constitutive of creatureliness. It’s odd too because Harvey applies his point narrowl… 詳閱
