Lewis must've thought an allegorical fantasy (however entertaining) was needed to "explain" Christ or make Him more accessible. This may be why:

"Lewis denied the verbal and plenary inspiration of the Bible"

The reason it's "controversial" is some people wish to try the treatment, and others don't want them to.
Article says "[it] doesn’t work for everyone and carries uncertain risks."

Now there's a Truism! What pharmaceutical could this *not* be said of? Drug ads list often frightening side-effects and hazards, yet they get approved and are not labeled "controversial" by the "Medical Guild" and their media stooges.

My otherwise healthy 104 year-old grandmother was killed by side-effects from ordinary antibiotics given for a cat scratch! No drug is completely safe. Her lifelong mistrust of doctors seemed vindicated.

Leftists often pretend that Bowdlerizing and censorship were invented by conservatives. Mark Twain has historically been a target because his depiction of blacks, though sympathetic, wasn't politically correct in hindsight.

Robinson Crusoe wasn't originally a children's story; so far as I know, these didn't exist as a distinct genre back then. Kids were expected to read adult [mature] literature.

"Swiss Family Robinson" was inspired by Robinson Crusoe and was written by a Swiss pastor. This was an example of the "Robinsonade" literary genre.

Sodom and Gomorrah, as I understand it, was a free-for-all, and were gathering places; ground zero, melting pots, for the world's se*xal deviants.
But notice: this wasn't Sodom's basic sin, which was pride according to Eze. 16:49. The description fits modern America and Europe pretty well; "gay pride" says it all.

Almost no one discusses mortifying one's pride, but it's always lurking beneath the surface.

SF to Carson City is about 250mi, well within the tank range of most cars.

BTW, John UK might've mentioned that Britain has a subculture called Travelers, folks who live in their "caravans" or RVs. Some cause trouble with trespassing or petty theft. And not all are Gypsies.

I cannot think of any organization that did not "circle the wagons" to protect themselves to avoid the pain of rooting out abusers.

Surprised there are no accusations against CA councils. I was in one of these during the '70s, but saw nothing out of line.

I think it's a complex of causes including rent control, restrictive zoning, and inflationary minimum wages. I doubt those lawmakers who "struggle to find a solution" [yeah, illusory solutions beloved of leftists] would even consider relaxing such policies. Here, the public is reaping what foolish leftists have sown.

And there's the broader problem of divorce and illegitimacy, not helped by welfare rules which reward irresponsibility.

In America at least, we found it's hard to keep a friend once a difference of opinion arises.

Maybe one of the Dayton victims, the white guy's white sister, was a white racist, too.
Conner Betts's Twitter page is reported as showing sympathies with socialism, satanism, Antifa, and Elizabeth Warren:

Seems consistent to me

The problem rarely mentioned is the collapse of self-control, not inadequate gun control.

In the Bible, there is no amorphous "middle class." There are the rich, and everybody else. And it is not the state's job to punish rich men who misuse their wealth; it's God's job.

That's unacceptable for Marxists and Progressives.

Certainl people in Us Air Force have been pushing Christianity out for awhile and now you’re seeing part of the negative affect that’s caused.
But historically, many militaries have thrived absent any sort of Christian witness. I'm not an insider, but I rather think that here, it's a combination of modern recruits, used to having their way, lacking the character to handle demands made by military service, coupled with unrelenting yet pointless deployments that accomplish little. Perhaps the cliche that they're "defending our freedom" is wearing thin.

Men often would rather face imminent death than be caught in an endless cycle of conflict without a clear path forward. Gen. Bernard Montgomery, remembering WW1, understood this and liked to brief his troops telling them exactly what was expected of them before a battle.

This man strains a gnat and swallows a camel. Of course voluble Trump is no Eisenhower, but how about longstanding political name-calling and threats by Democrats and even street violence by their terrorist subsidiary Antifa? These too diminish our national life.

While individual Catholics may support conservative causes, you can bank on Catholic clerics supporting Progressive causes almost every time, and have been since the New Deal at least. I think "Family Planning" is the *only* exception. Encyclical Rerum Novarum outlines first principles of progressive "Christian Democracy."

Disposable razors, like plastic product packaging, generate more waste that must be disposed of. So much for the "sustainability angle."

And through effective advertising propaganda, Gillette taught women to be ashamed of unshaven legs. A century ago, women didn't expose enough flesh for this to matter.

In the '70s, Phillip Morris exploited feminism to sell Virginia Slims cigarettes with disgusting Strawman ads about how "bad" women had it before they were "liberated" to smoke. But Bernays really started this back in '20s.

The public is emotionally manipulated so easily.

Spendthrift politicians are elected by spendthrift voters.

Calvin Coolidge predicted that after Hoover (whom he didn't like), a Democrat would get elected and they would spend money "like water" since "Democrats don't understand money." In hindsight, that proved an understatement, though not restricted to Democrats.

BTW, Coolidge was much more "activist" as Mass. Governor than as President. He understood Federalism.

... As for true sky is falling scenario, with trillions of debt, and without ending the totally undisciplined spending, how can it not happen at some point?
I agree in principle, yet recall in 1991, Larry Burkett sold a book predicting a crash shortly after 2000. Now 2008 was close, but not enough in time or severity to vindicate him. If we can't say why he was wrong, then of what use is, say, Peter Schiff, a more current example who has a similar analysis?

The credibility and usefulness of a prediction declines with age. The "Big One" CA earthquake is a similar example I've heard since I was a kid. We know it will occur someday, but life must go on and we can't sit in our Prepper shacks all day watching our food stocks rot.

I certainly say we should be careful with debt, but that's because the Bible says so.

Did you know that the average retiree watches 51 hours a week of TV?
I knew it was something like that. The frightening thing is, Edward Bernays was right: public opinion can be manipulated successfully by propaganda from powerful interested parties by "manufacturing consent." One has to be almost compulsively skeptical to resist this, and it isn't much fun thinking this way. Believing "Total Depravity" helps a only little.😉

And even critics of mass media have their own agendas (e.g. selling precious metals) and should not be given a pass just because they don't trust CNN and MSNBC. How many decades have these guys, like Rapture advocates, been writing books predicting the economic Sky Will Fall any minute now?

An interesting article that was on CNN:
Anyone who repeats that ludicrous "Russia meddled in US elections" myth is part of the problem, not the solution.

The best antidote to being duped by propaganda, such as found on CNN, is Formal Logic.

BBC has a long history of sneaking fanservice into their content.

Re Chandler's defensive remarks, one more thought. One often hears "We're all sinners" or "We all make mistakes" as a reply to reproof. This is a worthless, evasive truism, too often repeated by people feigning humility, including pastors, unfortunately. Repentance must be specific. "I did [or didn't do] such-and-such; it was a sin, please forgive me." is more convincing.

1) I can't say how legally culpable the leadership is, but some of Chandler's remarks sound like callous excuses;
2) Don't let your kids out of your sight at church; these days, with exploding Internet porn and perversion almost universal, coupled with the tendency of Christians to trust everybody, the risk of exposing children to pederasts is too great. There may even be perverts among the kids themselves! We heard of one such before.
3) Youth ministries aren't even Biblical. Christ didn't create His Church so people could have "fun." Truth and Eternity are at stake.
