Obamacare Provides $7,200 ‘Divorce Incentive,’ $11,000 for Older Couples

    CNSNews: On the Obamacare health insurance exchanges, being married can cost you a lot. Get divorced (or avoid getting married, if you live together), and you save $7,230 per year if you are a fairly typical 40-year-old couple with kids (example: the husband working full-time, and the wife working part time, with the husband making $70,000, and the wife making $23,000).

Religion Runs in the Family

    Christianity Today: For Vern Bengtson, a longtime scholar at the University of Southern California, this question has driven a career’s worth of research. Thirty-five years ago, Bengtson began examining the religious beliefs and practices of more than 3,500 grandparents, parents, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. These efforts have culminated with his forthcoming study, Families and Faith: How Religion is Passed Down across Generations (Oxford University Press). The book, co-authored with research assistants Norella Putney and Susan Harris, looks at how parents seek to reproduce religious faith in their children amid an increasingly individualistic society.

Tasmanian Archbishop says no to women altar servers, gov’t minister says unlawful discrimination

    ABC.Net.AU: But Tasmania’s Anti-Discrimination Commissioner is suggesting the Archbishop’s position on women as alter servers may not comply with the Act . . . “There’s a defence that says a religious institution can discriminate on the basis of gender if it’s required by the doctrines of the religion,” Ms Banks said. “It gets down to the question of is it consistent with the doctrines of the religion to exclude people on the basis of gender. If it’s not then the exception wouldn’t apply.”

It would also would allow Americans to keep the money they save by picking lower-cost providers . . . Additionally, it would let people carry their insurance with them from job to job, and cut wasteful legal costs by reforming medical insurance.
