Pew Research

Same sex marriage is an issue in many parts of the world. As you will see, the minority of states and a small minority of countries legally allow such marriages, but the number is growing (and, I would say, the momentum, at least in the West, is on the side of growing acceptance of gay marriage.

Uber-blogger Adrian Warnock is, much to many people's surprise, not a pastor (we talk about that here). He is actually a research psychiatrist. He explains some important issues around the DSMV here.

Jonathan Merritt point us to "another Gosnell." On a side note, I recently sat with a national (very liberal) religious leader, on the board of several national pro-choice organizations, who explains that this is what third trimester abortion looks like. Mind you, he was pro-choice and had all the reasons it was necessary even as we disagreed. But, his point was worth considering-- if this is reality (and much of it is), why are we even debating late-term abortion. For that matter, why did President Obama vote against the ban on late-term abortion. No civilized society should tolerate this.

Carter serves as the Pastor of Preaching & Vision at the Austin Stone Community Church in Austin, Texas, which has grown from a core team of 15 to over 7,000 attending each Sunday since the church began in 2002. He co-authored For the City, which explored what it would look like for a local church to be an advocate for the welfare of the city, and The Real Win (lfwy.co/RBeOEQ), a book on biblical manhood co-authored by NFL quarterback Colt McCoy.

He has also co-authored two group studies, Creation Unraveled and Creation Restored, which traced the gospel message through the book of Genesis.
