"I wouldn’t presume to say that anything was being communicated to me, but I nevertheless had a glimpse — or an overwhelming 'sense' — of something. In that brief flash I knew that hovering over us, near us, within us, all about us, was an awful, unstoppable ache of love and sadness; a sense of 'Oh, my people! How often I have wanted to gather your children together as a hen protects her chicks beneath her wings, but you wouldn’t let me.'"

From The Nation

"On the left, prostitution used to be seen as a bad thing: part of the general degradation of the working class, and the subjugation of women, under capitalism. Women who sold sex were victims, forced by circumstances into a painful and humiliating way of life, and socialism would liberate them. Now, selling sex is sex work—just another service job, with good points and bad—and if you suggest that the women who perform it are anything less than free agents, perhaps even 'empowered' if they make enough money, you’re just a prude."

From Yahoo!News/The Christian Science Monitor

"If you were a salesperson trying to persuade a potential client to switch suppliers, you would be kind and friendly to that client, not dismiss them as stupid or worse for their current supplier choice. So if you're trying to sell an idea -- whether on the national political stage or at a family dinner with your uncle -- why would you behave any differently? Kindness, respect, finding the basic goodness and human dignity in everyone -- that is the essence of emotional correctness, and that is how we begin the conversations that lead to change."

From Canon & Culture

"But is the (supposed) ecclesiastical exodus of collegiate and post-collegiate Evangelicals really as simple as disgust with the excesses of political conservatism, discomfort with Christianity’s claim of exclusivity regarding the path to salvation, a desire to 'live green,' and simply get along in an adverse society?"

"That high-powered professional men have illicit affairs is not an uncommon occurrence anywhere in the world. However, whereas an affair might be a secret elsewhere, Chinese men support multiple women, in part, to flaunt openly their wealth and social status."

From The Washington Post

"Aczel, trained as a mathematician, currently a research fellow in the history of science at Boston University and the author of 'Fermat’s Last Theorem,' takes aim at the New Atheists in his intelligent and stimulating book 'Why Science Does Not Disprove God.' He attempts to show that the New Atheists’ analyses fall far short of disproving the existence of God."
