From NPR

"The most painful part of being a virgin wasn't so much that I wasn't having sex nor was it that I was lonely since I had plenty of good friends. Rather the painful part was that I felt like I was not being a man in the right way[,] that I was a failure. Futile crush blurred into futile crush and I just sat there doing nothing. Men were supposed to do things, men were supposed to have salacious anecdotes, men were supposed to have sex, I wasn't having sex -- so what did that make me?"

From The Crescat

"I am not moved or upset at the actual words themselves. What’s disturbing is witnessing someone being so controlled by their own anger and pain that they are helpless to stop themselves from lashing out."

From the Chattanooga Times Free Press

"Clearly, there is a disconnect when it comes to understanding the significance of marriage and its impact on the well-being of children. While there has been ongoing emphasis on the importance of education attainment for young people, there has been very little said about sequencing for success and the significance of marriage."

From Public Catholic

"The once-removed part of The Handmaid Tale’s prophetic prescience lies in who is committing and promoting this crime against humanity. It is not, as Margaret Atwood wrote, the evil 'traditional values' people and Gospel singers who are designing babies for sale by harvesting women’s ovaries, and then using women as wombs to carry these babies which are then sold for astronomical amounts on the open market."

From Relevant Magazine

"We focus on loving God with all our heart and soul, and that’s probably for the best. 'Heart' and 'soul' can be loosely translated as 'desire' and 'life,' so they’re no small part of us. It’s not a coincidence that they’re first on the list. And loving God with all our mind may not make it into as many of our worship choruses, but most of us recognize the importance of learning more about Him.

"But for many of us, loving God with all our strength isn’t really part of our faith at all."

From The Gospel Coalition

"Our notion of authenticity should not primarily be about affirming each other in our struggles—patting each other on the back as we share about porn struggles while enjoying a second round of beers at the local pub Bible study. Rather, authenticity comes when we collectively push each other, by grace, in the direction of Christ-likeness."

From The Atlantic

"'[On TV] if there is a dad in the home, he is an idiot. It must have reflected our own discomfort with dads being competent,' said Hanna Rosin on a panel about the future of fatherhood at the Aspen Ideas Festival. 'You put a dad in front of his kid, and the dad gives the worst advice. You put a dad in front of a toaster and he burns the house down.'"

From Live Action

"Russia’s deep-seated abortion culture, implemented publicly during Bolshevik rule, continues to shape the perception of the value and dignity of human life. In a country where birth control costs more than an abortion procedure, the practice has not only become the norm– it is the top birth control method in the country. Until recently, Russian women reportedly had seven abortions over their lifetime. In 2003, BBC reported there were 13 abortions for every 10 live births; Reuters reported in 2009 that there were 73 abortions per 100 births in Russia."

"The Pope has officially been named as the most influential world leader on Twitter.

"With around 14 million followers on his nine different language accounts, he is far behind US President Barack Obama's 43.7 million. However, the annual Twiplomacy study this year shows that Pope Francis is still 'by far the most influential tweep.'"

From Her.meneutics

"To be sure, not all the pain of infertility can be eliminated. But much of this pain is perpetuated by a culture—including a church culture—that does not emphasize enough the flourishing that comes in accepting our limits rather than futilely insisting they be overcome."

From Indiana Policy Review

"People of faith quite naturally look to their faith to inform their perspective on public policy. May we all, left or right, Republican or Democrat, conservative, libertarian or progressive approach our religious witness in the public sphere with humility and charity. Let us not make a false idol out of our politics."
