Sex is designed to bind two people together, to cement the marital covenant. Which is part of why sex is so magnetic—it’s intended to powerfully draw you to your spouse. The meaning of sex is contradicted and its purpose dangerously employed when had outside of marriage.

Feelings of love are not a secure enough foundation to support having sex with someone; only a binding commitment of love provides a secure enough foundation to support the weightiness of sex in a relationship. Sex is just not compatible with any relationship other than marriage.

Balanced assessment of mass incarceration. Agendas on right & left lead to reductionistic assessments that leave out relevant detail: e.g. sentences that do not fit crime or how poverty impacts outcomes (right); crime rates or percentage incarcerated for violent crimes (left).

Black Harvard economist, Roland G. Fryer, found no evidence of a pattern of racial discrimination in police shootings. That should be good news? If unity and reconciliation are the goal, then shouldn't truth telling be applied to our tragic past as well as our hopeful present?

It seems we do a disservice to justice if we do not speak about and combat these injustices in proportion to their severity and prevalence. It also seems disingenuous not to acknowledge the progress that has been made as it pertains to racial justice: e.g.

Jemar, we have supported International Justice Mission & Equal Justice Mission for years. Recently, I was introduced to Thomas Sowell & Larry Elder. As you know, they deny that "systemic racism" still plagues our country. Generally, how would you respond to them/their data?

That said, if justice is the goal, it is important that we: 1. Identify actual vs. perceived acts or systems of injustice; 2. Diagnose the cause(s) of the identified injustice (e.g. selfishness, codified law, culture, ideology); 3. Implement ethical, evidence based solutions.

Racism and abortion share the same logic. If we oppose one, we should oppose the other. These are not left and right issues; they are human rights issues.
