From DalyFocus

"After a few years of Super Bowl commercials featuring Dad as the butt of too many jokes, it seems like this year may be in for a refreshing change. There are two pre-released game day ads that show fathers in a positive light."

From The Spectator

"After the battering he has received, I doubt if Cumberbatch will take the trouble to argue for fairer treatment for ethnic minority and working class actors again. Pursed lipped prudes, who damn others for their sexist, racist, homophobic and transphobic language, while doing nothing to confront real injustice, are characteristic figures of our time. As characteristic are well-meaning people abandoning good causes because they cannot take the prudes’ condemnations."

From The Washington Post

"Perhaps most striking, 39 percent of the LGBT community said the marriage fight was taking focus off other issues of import to them."

From Christ & Pop Culture

"The lesson of Paddington—that real homes are defined by love and real families by care regardless of species—asks audiences to consider the ways we show God’s love in a world consumed by busyness and fear."

From BBC News

"Those who survived Auschwitz lived through one of the 20th Century's worst acts of hatred and inhumanity. Many of those still alive today were children in 1945 but they are elderly now and this may be the last significant anniversary where so many will gather."

From First Things

"The notion that women are rabbitlike 'breeders' who should produce as many children as possible is harmful and false—as is the common assumption that this idea originated in Christian circles. In fact, it has secular origins in the eighteenth-century Enlightenment."

From The Atlantic

"Being Mortal, which was published in October, is ostensibly about the struggle to cope with the constraints imposed by flesh-and-bone biology—and the failure of medical science to acknowledge that any ability to push back is finite. Gawande's ultimate message, that death in America is not often enough discussed, and that patients suffer at the hands of well-meaning doctors because of it, has been generally celebrated, though not for breaking particularly new ground. "

From LifeSiteNews

"The cry to be aroused constantly is a sign not of sensibility but of insensibility. Boredom is a sign not of a longing to receive but of a refusal to receive. Impatience is a sign not of great powers pressing towards realization, but of feebleness. The nearly blind need garish colors, the nearly deaf need bombastic sound. If your children cannot attend to a stream, a flower, a poem, or even a not-so-noisy but tactfully human film, then our problem is not what sort of imagination they have, but whether they can be said to have an imagination at all."

From First Things

"Here’s a thought. A great proportion of the pro-life marchers are young people. They are volunteers, unpaid and untrained. Mefford, on the other hand, is a grown man, one whose actual job is to represent Christians in the public square. How is it, then, that if we compare Mefford and the young marchers, the adolescents are the ones who come out looking like adults?"

From The Globe and Mail

"King Abdullah’s reign brought about marginal advances for women but failed to secure the fundamental rights of Saudi citizens to free expression, association, and assembly. Abdullah’s successor, King Salman, should halt persecution of peaceful dissidents and religious minorities, end pervasive discrimination against women, and ensure greater protections for migrant workers."

From The Daily Signal

"The pro-life movement is a winning cause not because it [is] always politically popular or easy, but because it’s a cause built on an undeniable truth: that every human being -- from the moment of conception -- is a person with inestimable value, dignity and the right to life. We cannot continue to deny that right to youngest and most vulnerable children in our society simply because they are small, dependent, disabled or simply inconvenient."

"Andrae Crouch is one of only a handful of gospel artists to have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. His music will surely live on for generations."
