“The Witch-Hunt for Mark Regnerus” – Denny Burk

The Witch-Hunt for Mark Regnerus

Imagine someone who denies that 9/11 actually happened calling a university president and demanding that a history professor be fired for teaching the facts surrounding the 9/11 tragedy. Now imagine the university president who would actually do that.

Denny Burk has written a fantastic observation entitled The Witch-Hunt for Mark Regnerus. In this article he describes the position truth-declaring Christians are in. Mark Regnerus published a completely scientific study that cast homosexual parents in a negative light. He is now being burned for going against current cultural trends even though his science was accurate and well-supported.

The obvious application for the Christian is this . . . the world will hate us because it hates Christ (John 15:18). If we teach what He teaches, we will be persecuted. I agree with Burk when he said, “We will look back on moments like this one as one more step down the path of intolerance of Christian views. Mark Regnerus is in the crosshairs now, but it will be all of us before too long.”
