From Moore to the Point

"The hope for Bruce Jenner, and for others like him, is not to alter the body with surgery or to flood their system with hormones. The answer is to realize that all of us are born alienated from what we were created to be. We don’t need to fix what happened in our first birth; we need a new birth altogether."

From The New York Times

"A pluralistic and diverse society like ours can exist only if we all tolerate people who disagree with us. That's why religious freedom laws matter -- and why it is critical for conservatives and business leaders to unite in this debate."

From National Review Online

"A new spirit of intolerance has arisen on the Johns Hopkins University campus, and conservative Christians are the targets. The JHU student government’s vote this week to ban any hypothetical future Chick-fil-A outlet from campus because of the company owner’s support for traditional marriage, coming on the heels of the JHU Spring Fair’s censorship of a pro-life fetal-model display as 'disturbing' and 'triggering,' sends a clear message that students who disagree with liberal orthodoxy are not welcome on the Hopkins campus."

From Acculturated

"What’s with the apparent epidemic of ugly public sculptures? Jones is at a loss to explain it. After all, he wrote, 'Modern art supposedly killed off this kind of vulgar realism.' But modern—or more precisely, postmodern—art, with its deconstruction of the beautiful, is precisely what is to blame."

From The Wall Street Journal

"A 93-year-old who handled cash carried by victims at the Auschwitz concentration camp went on trial Tuesday for 300,000 counts of accessory to murder, in what is likely to be one of the last times that Germany tries a person for alleged complicity in Nazi crimes. The case against Oskar Gröning, a former member of Adolf Hitler’s Waffen-SS military unit, is unusual because few Nazis remain alive and because Mr. Gröning has spoken openly in the past about his experience overseeing victims’ belongings on the Auschwitz ramp, where concentration camp overseers selected which prisoners would be killed immediately and which would be forced to work. "

From Eidos

"Some call today  'Earth Day' . . . though the Day itself strikes me as contrived and dominated by Wormtongue self-loathing. And yet Christians are commanded by God to conserve the Earth and be good stewards of what He has put in our charge. We do not 'rule the earth' but are mere stewards waiting the return of the King. God help us if we forget that we will have to answer for what we done with our charge! So using any excuse to think about an important issue, Christians can turn to creation care."

From Cranach

"The National Association of Scholars, an organization of conservative academics, has put out an FAQ page on what is wrong with the new Advanced Placement U. S. History exam.  It sums up well the problems also with the Common Core, contemporary text books, and the state of the history profession in general."

From Variety

"ABC Family wants to make sure advertisers understand its programming isn’t the sort that might be watched by, well, the unit that is part of its name.

"The Walt Disney-owned cable outlet unveiled plans Tuesday to focus on a group of viewers it calls 'becomers' who [are] interested in romance, even sex, and on their way to becoming big-spending consumers ready to sign up for credit cards and financial investments. In doing so, executives hope to scrap a long-held notion that its original shows are aimed at parents and younger children watching together."

From The Week

"Just in case you were wondering, I don't agree with Anderson on most issues, and certainly not on gay marriage, which I have supported for years. I laid out some of my disagreements in a column written over two years ago, and I've since tussled with him on Twitter on more than one occasion.

But so what? I disagree with lots of public figures, writers, advocates, and intellectuals on a wide range of issues. (Don't we all?) And as the Post profile noted, Anderson is unfailingly civil in public debates. Although he's the target of constant insults and ad hominem abuse online, he invariably responds with patience and respect -- certainly more than I could muster. Why should this person, who's so patently devoted to the reasonable exchange of arguments, be considered beyond the bounds of civilized discourse?"

From First Things

"Because gay marriage doesn't bear the burdens of virginity and chastity, it doesn't bear the burdens of real marriage which, Schulman argues, even today are 'honored in spirit if not in letter, creating for women (women as modern as Beyoncé) the right to demand a tangible sacrifice from the men who would adore them.'"
