Space porn: These images are (quite literally) out of this world
The Southern Baptist Convention’s “top expert on family concerns” says that treating men and women as equal partners in a relationship isn’t just wrong, it’s downright unbiblical.
“God designed us in such a way where we learn about him through family relationships,” Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission President Russell Moore said in a recent interview. “We learn about the nature of reality in family relationships, and in terms of what it means to image God, by being faithful fathers and husbands and mothers and wives.”
“Often, I think, the gospel is obscured because God has designed a picture of the gospel in the one-flesh union of husband and wife. When that is broken down, you have a false gospel that is being preached,” he continued. “And sometimes you have people who are preaching a false gospel to themselves in their homes by men who aren’t loving their wives as themselves and wives who aren’t submitting to their husbands,” he said. “That then plays itself out in other ways later on in that person’s walk with Christ.”
As regressive as Moore’s remarks are, they become more alarming when you realize that this view of men and women’s relationships is nearly identical to the views held by “dating expert” Justin Lookadoo, who was recently invited to lecture students at a Texas public school about “healthy relationships.”

40 years ago the Apollo 8 mission flew up to the moon, orbited it ten times and then returned to Earth. This picture was taken from that flight and shows the Earth as it seemingly rises in similar fashion to a sunrise.
Sunrise from Expedition 36
NASA Flight Engineer Karen L. Nyberg of Expedition 36 took this photo of the sun rising -- a sight they saw nearly 16 times per day due to the speed of the International Space Station's orbit around the earth.
