From The Federalist

"Whether or not the story generates major media attention, the Center for Medical Progress’ expose of Planned Parenthood’s participation in the harvesting and sale of fetal organs continues to feature major updates."

From Evolution News and Views

"How did we miss this? The comment is brief but pungent to say the least. Interviewed by The New Yorker earlier this year, the great novelist and journalist Tom Wolfe acknowledged that he's writing a book about evolution -- actually, 'a history of the theory of evolution from the nineteenth century to the present.' No indication of what his overall thesis might be, but he 'invokes the Spanish Inquisition when discussing how academics have cast out proponents of intelligent design for 'not believing in evolution the right way.'"

From First Things

"Defenders of Planned Parenthood have sought to downplay the videos, to equivocate, to ignore. (The last of these is becoming increasingly difficult.) So we must not relent in confronting the public with the truth—and not in legal or procedural language, but with the stark idiom of moral condemnation.

"Legal change—the defunding of Planned Parenthood, for starters—is a necessary but not sufficient condition for the repentance of a whole society. We must learn to hate evil enough that we are unwilling to overlook it for the greater good."

From The Federalist

"How bad is the baby organ trafficking story for Planned Parenthood? So bad that the nation’s largest abortion provider has hired a pricey PR firm to bully media outlets into not covering the scandal."

From The Institute on Religion and Democracy

"In an era where cultural compromise is the trend, 'The Colson Way' introduces a fearless advocate for the Faith, family and freedom to Millennials. His story of accountability and unwavering conviction and compassion is simply one every young evangelical should know.

"Go ahead. Get to know Chuck Colson. Download 'The Colson Way' here."

From Her.meneutics

"Despite our shifts away from pro-life and pro-choice labels, many Americans essentially conceptualize the issue the same way, with abortion rights seen as favoring the woman and restrictions on abortion as favoring the baby. But we’re hearing more from Christian women who challenge this false dichotomy, as well as the notion that to be liberal, progressive, or feminist, you must also be pro-choice.

"They say it’s out of concern for women--for their wellbeing and empowerment and place in the world--that we can seek better options than abortion. To put it simply: To be pro-woman is actually to be pro-life."

From The Daily Signal

"ABC News is mainstreaming the practice of polyamory—that is, group marriage—with a story titled, 'Two Moms, One Dad, Two Babies Make One Big Happy Polyamorous Family.'"

From Reuters/Religion News Service

"The membership policy change would no longer prohibit gay adult participation but would allow local units latitude to make their own choices regarding gay leaders.

"'The BSA national policy that prohibits gay adults from serving as leaders is no longer legally defensible,” the organization said in statement earlier this month. 'However, the BSA’s commitment to duty to God and the rights of religious chartered organizations to select their leaders is unwavering.'"

From The New York Times

"The reluctance to look closely doesn’t change the truth of what there is to see. Those were dead human beings on Richard Selzer’s street 40 years ago, and these are dead human beings being discussed on video today: Human beings that the nice, idealistic medical personnel at Planned Parenthood have spent their careers crushing, evacuating, and carving up for parts.

"The pro-life sting was sweeping; there are reportedly 10 videos to go. You can turn away. But there will be plenty of chances to look, to see, to know."

From National Catholic Register

"It was while majoring in government at Claremont McKenna College in California that Daleiden received his first hint that the abortion industry was selling parts from aborted babies.

"'I was working as a research assistant and attended a stem-cell conference as part of my job,' he said. 'The presenter mentioned using cells from an aborted baby for research. That got my attention. I thought, ‘Wait a minute -- what?'"

From Baptist Message/Christian Examiner

"Mike Walker, pastor of the Bayou Church in Lafayette, called the shooting a surreal event. Not only does his son live a quarter of a mile from the theater but one of his church members was the second police officer to arrive on the scene.

"'We've seen people of faith reach out and step up to be with our hurting community,' Walker said. "Dismay and fear are being confronted with prayers, love and peace."

From First Things

"Polling’s success has come at a price. Polling has taught us to think about religion in certain ways that happen to be convenient for conducting polls. The questions tap a few aspects of belief and behavior that can be tracked as trends and rarely provide opportunities to hear what people actually think. Polling’s credibility depends on a narrow definition of science and an equally limited understanding of the errors to which its results are subject. Its legitimacy hinges mostly on predicting elections and making news."
