And also, science.”Casual observer: “But the baby…”Pro-choicer: “Don’t you…

He exposed the Democrats’ extremism on the issue by referencing their support for late-term abortion and (as in the case of the Governor of Virginia) their support for allowing some babies to die after birth. The New York…

Words at War – Christian Article

Words we use – or withhold – shape our culture, opinions and identities. From media and Church to the White House, our words are at war to claim attention more than ever before. We examine Trump’s words (and silence) regarding Sen. McCain’s death, the Vatican’s response to recent abuse allegations, what various media outlets chose to cover after the Manafort and Cohen dramas, and whether preaching is a dying craft. Our guest is Jonathan Merritt, author of “Learning to Speak…

The Impossibility of an Evangelical Conservatism – Christian Article

Rusty Reno has concluded that I am a “respectable evangelical,” an appellation which he does not intend as a compliment. His comments come in response to my article for America Magazine, on the relationship of conservative Catholics and Evangelicals under and beyond Trump. Reno suggests that whatever insights the piece has, the “rank-and-file are invisible” in my description of evangelicalism’s political landscape, “neglecting the obvious fact that [‘old guard’ evangelicals like Jerry Falwell, Jr. are] leaders because so many people follow them,” and…

This thought first came to mind as I listened to a spoken word performance by a friend of mine, Manon Bullock. She was referencing the death of Rekia Boyd in Chicago, a Black woman shot dead by an off-duty white police officer in 2012. She said if we could have chosen any outcome for Rekia Boyd, martyrdom would not have been included in the calculation. This struck a chord…

Here’s why I’m a YES on Prop 5 on the California ballot: The current law, Prop 13 from 1978, was designed to help homeowners stay in their homes. The worry at that time was that property tax increases would force many older Californians to lose their homes to the county.
