From Forbes

"My goal isn’t to offer a finely balanced, objective assessment of Mars Hill that would satisfy both Driscoll’s critics and his supporters. That’s not even possible, frankly. Rather, my goal to explain some of the Enron-like dynamics that result in leaders becoming media darlings and being celebrated widely as the 'smartest' or 'best' people in the room, even when there are hints that a spectacular flameout is possible."

From The New York Times

"The case of Jann P. v. Jamie P. is messy and at times disturbing, as breakups often are, but the questions it raises are broad: What does it mean to be a parent to a child?

"It’s true that, when confronted by the crowd seeking to stone the woman taken in adultery, Jesus didn’t begin by saying to the crowd, 'You are right, adultery is sinful'; it was only privately, to the woman, that he condemned her sin, saying 'Go and sin no more.'

"On the other hand, in the first place, in Jesus’ social milieu adultery was universally recognized as sinful." (Emphasis in original)

"Many have been understandably astonished and disturbed this week by the video of NFL player, Ray Rice, punching his fiancé in an elevator. As I was still processing this repulsive offense, I was came across dozens of heartbreaking tweets from abuse victims around the world using the #WhyIStayed, expressing why they had remained with the person who abused them. As I read these tweets, I began to realize how often I have heard abuse victims share that the Church was the reason #WhyIStayed. I began remembering how often I have heard of women who wearily return to those who hurt them time and time again because that is what their church told them to do."

Apparently, the fine Ivy League institution doesn’t want the best and brightest to have to endure feeling bad about themselves during their first year."
