"For Nicolaou, the benefit religion provides is a sense of community, mutual support, and 'helping us understand our role in the cosmos.' As these ideas suggest, despite being unaffiliated, Nicolaou came to her quest with preconceptions about religion. Those preconceptions shaped her quest and limited what she would find as she meandered through four major religions and hundreds of congregations over a period of several years."

From The Weekly Standard

"The target Cervantes and Shakespeare attacked was the grandest myth of the Middle Ages: chivalry. It was a noble ideal and at its best it did much to refine an otherwise coarse and brutal world, but it rested on shaky foundations and had many unintended and disastrous consequences."

From Patheos

"Faith inevitably shapes politics. It cannot be otherwise, as faith speaks to ultimate questions -- the character and will of God, the purpose of life, the nature of man, the means of justice, and the path to human flourishing. All have broad and deep political implications and consequences. But perhaps one of the most important roles our faith plays in this election season is to remind us of the limits of politics."

"'What it means to be a Baptist is to support soul freedom for everybody,' Moore said during a report to Southern Baptists at the St. Louis gathering. 'And, brothers and sisters, when you have a government that says we can decide whether or not a house of worship can be constructed based upon the theological beliefs of that house of worship, then there are going to be Southern Baptist churches in San Francisco and New York and throughout this country who are not going to be able to build.'"

"How do we deal with the nonsensical lies of political opportunists and Christian bashers? I think our best bet is to take the Christian bashers seriously, to accept that they genuinely believe their own confabulations. Know that they are nuts, but don’t let them drag us down into their nutty vitriol. The crazier they get, the calmer we should become."

"Now that we know that the percent of high school students who have never had sex has increased by more than 10 percent in only 2 years, we at Ascend anticipate a public acknowledgement of the relevancy and efficacy of the Sexual Risk Avoidance message in both press and policy."

"It’s risky to bring your kids to the movie theaters, especially the younger ones. One temper tantrum and that’s $10 down the drain. So here is one media-savvy mom’s proactive way to get the kids excited and emotionally invested in the film beforehand, so you get your money’s worth!"

From The Federalist

"The ever-changing sexual doctrines being handed down by our media and other elite institutions are at odds with many Christian teachings. . . .

"If we are to live in a tolerant society where people are allowed to hold views about sex that deviate from the priestly councils at the media corporations and in academia and in politics — if we are to live in a society where people are allowed to be Christian — we have to deal with that. A good training for tolerance is to understand and accurately convey the views of those sexual revolution heretics who stubbornly keep following their ancient teachings no matter how much the forces of conformity bear down."

From National Review Online

The result is bigotry running two ways — an unreasoning, irrational hatred of American Christians and a comprehensive denial of Muslim moral agency. American Christians are responsible for things they don’t believe. Sharia-observant Muslims, by contrast, aren’t responsible for the things they do believe.

From Aleteia

"Lin-Manuel Miranda’s rap-infused musical Hamilton justly took home the Tony award for Best Musical (and 10 other Tony awards to boot). While Treasury Secretary Alexander Hamilton’s political career is what fuels the rap battles in the show (yes, there’s a number about national debt policy), Miranda weaves a personal story alongside the political one, offering lessons on the hope of grace."

". . . Even as ideas about fatherhood evolve, certain conclusions about how fathers can pass on their faith remain stable. Studies on family life and religion highlight the value of emotional vulnerability, modeling religious behaviors and taking seriously the idea that kids partially learn who God is through their dad's actions."
