The New Normal Resource Hub

Society is changing fast, especially in its attitudes to sexuality and gender. A revolution has taken place in recent years which has now become impossible to ignore.

It is affecting schools, families, and public debate. A number of cases have been heard in courts across the country and covered in the media.

But many of us feel confused by what is happening and ill-equipped to respond properly.

The New Normal Resource Hub brings together links to articles, academic papers, books and videos to help us better understand the issues and know how to respond to them in a way that is clear, courageous and compassionate.

Before reading on, you may wish to read this helpful glossary of terms put together by Joe Carter, an Editor of The Gospel Coalition.

There has been a fast-paced revolution in society's attitude to sexuality and gender in recent years. This cultural shift is having a seismic effect on society. In this section of our transgender hub we have collated the personal accounts of those who have experienced the damaging effects first-hand, and their stories of liberation.
 

Personal accounts

A new study by highly reputable scholars Dr Lawrence, S. Mayer and Dr Paul R. McHugh shows evidencechallenging the popular claim that sexual orientation is innate. It highlights the prevalence of mental health issues amongst the LGBT community and links a same-sex lifestyle with environmental factors such as childhood abuse.
