"Kim Davis could become the first Christian in America jailed as a result of the Supreme Court decision legalizing gay marriage. “I’ve weighed the cost and I’m prepared to go to jail, I sure am," Mrs. Davis told me in an exclusive interview. “This has never been a gay or lesbian issue for me. This is about upholding the word of God.” “This is a heaven or hell issue for me and for every other Christian that believes,” she said. “This is a fight worth fighting.”. . . ”"

From The Gospel Coalition

"Is there a compromise solution in Kentucky—one that would allow same-sex couples to receive marriage licenses consistent with Obergefell without violating Davis’s religious beliefs? Yes, but some same-sex couples want nothing to do with it. They would rather force their neighbor to violate her conscience than drive 22 minutes to another county clerk’s office."

"Our task is clear: I urge you, says the Apostle Peter, as sojourners and exiles [in the pagan world] to abstain from the passions of the flesh, which wage war against your soul. Keep your conduct among the Gentiles honorable, so that when they speak against you as evildoers, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day of visitation. (1Peter 2:11-12). We must live this way in a corrupt culture but without any sense of superiority or judgmentalism, since God’s love is sheer redeeming grace."

From Center for Parent/Youth Understanding

"During his speech, Kanye West offered up a first-hand glance at how the postmodern worldview that we began talking about twenty years ago has taken root, grown, and is now bearing pragmatic fruit in how we think and act. West basically said, 'Hey. . . we’re Millennials. . . we can do and say whatever we want.' What our kids are losing. . . very quickly. . . is an inheritance of history, legacy, and wisdom from prior generations. On a side note, we are seeing this reality lived out more and more in the church."

From Eidos

"Here is a basic fact: Christianity is a religion of the Cross. We take up our cross daily and follow Jesus. Prayers are the work of the soul and all our prayers are answered, but some are answered 'not yet' or with continued pain. God sits in the Heavens and governs the universe. He desires what is best for me . . . but also for every being in the cosmos. I cannot always have my way in the short term in a broken universe."

From The Denver Post

"Yes, this practice does constitute the sale of body parts, and yes, normal people find that abhorrent regardless of their position on abortion. Planned Parenthood has proven, once again, that its bottom line is far more important than women's health."

"Braquet requested that teachers, rather than calling roll, will instead ask each student to provide the name and pronoun he or she -- or ze -- wishes to be referred by. She says it relieves a burden for people expressing different genders or identities."

From The Federalist

"In the age of Twitter and autoplay video, the instant sharing of yesterday’s murder footage was made far more horrific. It also raises questions about why -- why an obviously disturbed individual would seek to spend their last moments trying to win a battle with the people they just murdered on social media, and then share the horrifying images of this act of violence, changing the act from murder to selfie murder."

From The Atlantic

"Philip and Carol Zaleski’s The Fellowship: The Literary Lives of the Inklings is a mental map, a religious journey, and the biography of a brotherhood. Plenty of distinguished Inklings came and went over the years, padding across the carpets with a Warnie-provided drink in hand, but the Zaleskis zoom in on (and out from) the primary axis of Tolkien, Lewis, Williams, and Barfield, the four among whom the invisible correspondences of thought and affection were strongest. Christians all, these men formed what the Zaleskis call 'a perfect compass rose of faith': Barfield the proto–New Ager, Tolkien the rather prim orthodox Catholic, Lewis the noisy and dogmatically ordinary layman and popular theologian, Williams the ritualistic Anglican with a taste for sorcery."
