Not a pretty picture: 54,000 of 120,000 NYC births are out of wedlock

    NY Post: The numbers are staggering. Out of 120,000 live births in New York City in 2010, more than 54,000 babies were born out of wedlock. The human toll behind the numbers is devastating. Children raised without two parents face much higher odds in every facet of life. It’s as if they are forced to swim with one hand tied behind their backs.

New Mormon scriptures clarify race, polygamy references

    Mercury News: New introductions to the sections on eternal marriage and plural marriage emphasize monogamous marriage as the standard, says Valerie Hudson, a Mormon political science professor at Texas A&M University and co-author of “Sex and World Peace.” “In these new introductions, we see that ‘plural marriage’ (notice, not ‘plurality of wives’) is to be viewed as a principle and not as a commandment, and that the ‘standard’ of marriage is monogamy,” Hudson writes in an email.

How can we defend the killing of an unborn child in the name of ‘choice’? | Maria Santo at Baltimore Sun

    Maria Santo at the Baltimore Sun: It is long past time to question the appalling intellectual dishonesty that has led us to kill 55 million children through abortion in the past 40 years. We must, as a matter of justice, find better solutions to difficult pregnancies. Civilized societies thrive through smart, creative, generous, life-giving and just solutions to their difficulties. Civilized societies do not kill children as a solution to any problem, no matter how grave. No society can claim to be just while legally killing its own children in the name of “choice.”

Why pro-lifers keep fighting abortion | Helen M. Alvaré and Meg T. McDonnell at Washington Post

    Helen M. Alvaré and Meg T. McDonnell at Washington Post: Pro-choice Americans must wonder from time to time what keeps pro-lifers going. Why don’t we lay down our signs, cease our marching and admit that we’ve been good and beaten for these 40 years since Roe v. Wade? One of us is a baby boomer, the other a millennial; our views may help others understand these things and, along the way, think about some rarely considered aspects of the U.S. experience with legal abortion.

The ‘controversial’ beliefs of First Baptist Dallas | Kelly Boggs at Baptist Press

    Baptist Press: What has happened in America? It seems that political correctness has become a religion — an idol — in America. Everyone who does not embrace all beliefs — including sexual and religious — as equal is to be vilified and shamed. And if a person does not repent of their intolerance, he or she is to be shunned and ostracized. By canceling his appearance at First Dallas, Tim Tebow has, for now, appeased the priests and priestesses of political correctness. It seems one movement’s “tolerance” is just an excuse to exercise its own intolerance.

The Quarrel with Morals | Alan Sears at Townhall

    Alan Sears at Townhall: A lawyer who is not moral is something very akin to a doctor who is not compassionate. He may be capable, technically, of doing the job, but why would he want to? What satisfaction can there ultimately be for a physician in helping people whose well-being he cares nothing about? . . . If the law is not about morals, then it’s about the exercise of power for its own sake: I am making a law so that I can force you to do what I want you to do. Divorced from a higher, deeper, greater moral authority, the exercise of creating, defending, and enforcing the law is about the ego of those whose arrogance demands the subservience of others.

Disaster Coming: The Dark Clouds of Demography

    National Review: We’re in a serious enough demographic bind that we’re all going to have to work together to figure out a way to make this thing work. The thing is, when your fertility rate is sub-replacement, you enter a zero-sum game where either older folks aren’t going to get the benefits they were promised or young workers are going to face much steeper tax rates. How the politics of this issue resolves over the next 20 years will be one of the most interesting stories around. Will older Americans relinquish some of their claims? Will younger workers volunteer to pay more? Will there be some grand bargain? The truth is, no one knows how it will end. We just know that something has to give.

    The Atlantic: “What I tell my law clerks is that we write these so that they are accessible to regular people. That doesn’t mean that there’s no law in it. But there are simple ways to put important things in language that’s accessible. As I say to them, the beauty, the genius is not to write a 5 cent idea in a ten dollar sentence. It’s to put a ten dollar idea in a 5 cent sentence” . . . The quote that was likely most disheartening to his law student audience: “I wound up the court 17 years after I graduated. And I made my final payment on my student loan my third term on the court.”
