Emerging family-friendly towns in Europe

    Family Studies: The scholarly literature on family policies abounds with studies at the national level. Often central European governments establish measures for workers to balance work and family and policies that allow parents to obtain paid or unpaid leaves to care for their children. Yet the lives of most families revolve around towns, whether big or small, so towns or villages often provide kindergarten centers or parenting services for families with children. Nevertheless, scholars have paid little attention to family policies at the local level. There was not a coherent body of literature on such policies in Europe as of 2010, according to Francesco Belletti and Lorenza Rebuzzini, nor does it seem to exist yet.

    Aleteia: “Men who had slept with more than 20 women lowered their risk of developing [prostate] cancer by almost one third, and were 19 per cent less likely to develop the most aggressive form,” report researchers from the University of Montreal. The news for chastity gets even worse: “Men who said they had never had sexual intercourse were almost twice as likely to be diagnosed with prostate cancer as those who said they had.”

    The Christian Post: By now you’ve likely heard RNS News report that Dr. Russell Moore has supposedly “denounced reparative therapy” for same-sex attracted individuals who wish to change their sexual attractions and join the ex-gay community. But if you read all of Moore’s statements, you cannot find him downright rejecting sexual orientation change efforts (SOCE). Instead, he’s putting therapy in its place on the hierarchy of healing, as I explained over at The Christian Post while rejecting that notion that the solution is ultimately change.
