Millennials are rejecting the Moral Majority approach, embracing apolitical stance

    Canon and Culture: “With apologies to the Beatles, the last thirty years have left many Millennials with some baggage. The fire-breathing model of engagement practiced by some leaders of the “Moral Majority” left many Millennials with a bad taste in their mouth. The disillusioned and justly confused Millennial masses include many young pastors and scholars who find their identity in the vibrant “big gospel” movement of the last decade (like the New York Times, you may have just heard of it). Young Christian leaders today often express a desire to distance themselves from the Moral Majority and its ilk, adopting an “apolitical” or relatively indifferent political stance.”

Kennedy’s question: How will the court decide Hobby Lobby?

One-third of vegetative patients may be conscious: study

    MacLean’s: “As many as one-third of vegetative patients are misdiagnosed, according to a new study in The Lancet. Using brain imaging techniques, researchers found signs of minimal consciousness in 13 of 42 patients who were considered vegetative. ‘The consequences are huge,’ lead author Dr. Steven Laureys, of the Coma Science Group at the Université de Liège, tells Maclean’s. ‘These patients have emotions; they may feel pain; studies have shown they have a better outcome [than vegetative patients]. Distinguishing between unconscious, and a little bit conscious, is very important.’”
