Give MercatorNet a hand!

It has been 12 years since we started MercatorNet. I never thought that it would have such a huge impact around the world.
More than 4.9 million people have read some of our articles. Every week I receive emails from people thanking us and explaining how it helps their families navigate the turbulent seas of the modern world. (The most recent was from Ethiopia!)
All this has been possible thanks to the work of volunteers, good writers, many donors and, especially, the talent and generosity of Carolyn Moynihan, our deputy editor.
We’re battling influential minorities which dominate the media and campaign to dehumanize our culture and to trash real marriage. That’s why it’s so important to keep providing good arguments so that families can spread the truth and transform the world.
To continue, though, we need your support. To increase the quality of our articles and offer you better resources, we need to raise $100,000 before the end of the year.
Please contribute today to MercatorNet. You will be transforming our society and giving your children a brighter future.

November 22, 2017

For Australians, last week brought the curious juxtaposition of the country’s capitulation to the same-sex marriage crusade, and the public re-appearance of a long-lost and then long-obscured picture of Christ as Salvator Mundi, by (very probably) Leonardo da Vinci.

Reflecting on this coincidence in an article today, Michael Cook says that same-sex marriage seems to be about salvation through sex, but that kind of salvation cannot answer the deepest questions of human existence. Only the old salvation has those answers, he suggests, with examples that are well worth pondering.

That is also, ultimately, the message of German cultural critic Gabriele Kuby, interviewed in Melbourne by Family Edge contributor Veronika McLindon. The Catholic convert and writer argues that the courage to resist the tide of gender ideology will come from strong, loving families, who draw strength from their Christian faith.

That seems pretty clear to me. Much as one would wish that all thinking people, religious or not, could see the irrationality and futility of same-sexuality, it becomes clearer by the day that only religious people – and by no means all of them! – actually can.
