From Acculturated

". . . While Lord Sinderby’s rudeness and coldness at certain moments in the show are inexcusable, his objections are the kind that every interfaith couple should be confronted with—and be thinking about—before marrying."

"She told him she would never forget his crimes or be at peace with what he'd done. But she wrote that she was at peace with the man who raised her."

From The Corner

"The centenary of the artistic movement known as Dada is coming up in 1916 and it ought to produce a lot of nonsense."

From The Great Southeastern Prose and Ideas Company

"I asked him why he said that. He said, 'I don’t know, but lots of kids at school say it.' I responded, 'Don’t say that. Pronounce the name of your country correctly. Tell your friends I said that. Tell them your dad said that America may be the greatest nation that has ever existed.'"

"For eight hours a day, Tim Verdugo doesn’t feel like he’s in prison. The 37-year-old felon leaves a housing unit at a minimum-security prison in Carson City, Nevada, and steps on to a ranch where he’s addressed as 'horse trainer' instead of 'inmate.'"

From Well, This Is What I Think

"Der Weissen Rose was a group of mostly students at the University of Munich in Bavaria. Some were studying philosophy. Most, but not all, were religious in some way. Some of the boys had done military service but were allowed to do stints at university between stints on the Eastern Front. This experience provided them with more knowledge of what was actually going on than the average person living in Germany at the time, and it appalled them, but in their courageous resistance they still come across as young and somewhat naïve. It is this naivety that has made the White Rose so appealing. The operated from 'pure' theological and philosophical intellectual opposition to National Socialism, to fascism, to dictatorship, to the war, and to the slaughter of Europe’s Jews."

From The Anchoress

"They will lose because they do not understand the people they are slaying, and this is also why they are misreading their own effect. They think they have horrified the world, but they have only frightened the worldly. In the meantime, they have drawn Christians nearer toward one-another, and narrowed the lines of separation. They have reminded some Christians that the life of faith is not about politics and headlines; it is about the eternity, which we seek."

From Forbes

"A February 2015 survey by Hart Research Associates shows that 53 percent of all adults believe that FCC’s plans to regulate Internet service providers (ISPs) 'like a monopoly telephone service' would be harmful. Among self-identified Democrats, a full third believe that the President’s plan would be harmful, and only 51 percent think it would be helpful."

From Hot Air

"She’s soft-spoken, has 23 grandkids, professes love for the gay customer who tried to hire her for his wedding and helped him find another florist when she politely declined (it was Washington’s AG, not the customer, who filed the discrimination complaint against her), and stands to lose her business and possibly her home if the state keeps coming after her for this. There may be more sympathetic spokesmen for religious freedom out there but offhand I can’t imagine one. The polling on whether businesses should be required by law to cater to gay weddings is mixed, but I wonder how long that’ll last if the Stutzman case breaks big nationally."

From National Review Online

"Twenty-one Egyptian Coptic Christians were slaughtered on a beach in Libya a week ago. And even in his mourning, the brother of two of them gave thanks. The 21 Coptic Christians were killed because they were Christians, and some people — some of those most intimately affected by this evil — were responding as Christians."
