Push­ing back

The Washington Times Weekly - - Culture, Etc. -

“At first, pro-life Evan­geli­cism avoided the is­sue of con­tra­cep­tion. How­ever, over time, it has be­come ever more dif­fi­cult for many to draw an ab­so­lute line be­tween con­tra­cep­tion and abor­tion, be­cause [. . .] the ‘con­tra­cep­tive men­tal­ity’ em­braces both, and some forms of ‘con­tra­cep­tion’ are in prac­tice abor­ti­fa­cients.

“ ‘It is clear that there is a ma­jor re­think­ing go­ing on among Evan­gel­i­cals on this is­sue, es­pe­cially among young peo­ple,’ R. Al­bert Mohler Jr., pres­i­dent of the South­ern Bap­tist The­o­log­i­cal Sem­i­nary, re­cently told the Chicago Tri­bune. ‘There is a real push back against the con­tra­cep­tive cul­ture now.’ ”

Al­lan Carl­son, writ­ing on “Chil­dren of the Ref­or­ma­tion,” in the May is­sue of Touch­stone
