From National Review Online

"The Left’s heart is still in East Berlin: If people want to leave your utopia and have the means to do so, then build a wall. If they climb over the wall -- as millions of low-income parents with children in private schools (very commonly Catholic schools) do -- then build a higher wall."

From The New York Daily News

"It’s the one story where spoilers are impossible.

"Still, National Geographic Channel is determined to make 'Killing Jesus' as dramatic as the channel’s recent projects, 'Killing Lincoln' and 'Killing Kennedy' were.

"Also as popular."

From The Guardian

"Choice can be a mixed blessing -- as you know if you’ve ever spent an evening browsing hundreds of titles on Netflix only to repair despondently to bed without watching a movie.

"Yet in politics -- and in American politics above all -- choice remains an unquestionably positive thing. All else being equal, choice is good; in a free society, citizens should have as much of it as they possibly can. That’s a view so widely held that howls of outrage will surely greet Choosing Not To Choose, a new book by legal scholar and former Obama administration official Cass Sunstein."

From Crisis

"Likewise, in the Diocese of Scranton, Pennsylvania, a battle began last week against a priest who gave permission to show a pro-life film, To Be Born, to a sixth grade CCD class. Described in the local newspaper as holding 'rabid anti-abortion views,' the priest—a pastor who is beloved and greatly respected by his faithful parishioners at St. Monica’s Catholic Church—was called a 'bully' in a front page story of the Wilkes Barre newspaper. Unfortunately, instead of fighting back with the truth of Catholic teachings on the sanctity of life, the priest has appeared to accept the criticism of showing a pro-life film to “sensitive” sixth graders by admitting that he 'showed poor judgment' in allowing the pro-life film to be shown. The CCD teacher who showed the pro-life film has resigned. She was already under attack from parents because she had the temerity to disclose to her students that 'not everyone goes to Heaven.'"

From The Washington Post

"When Mo Yan won the Nobel Prize for literature in 2012, the judges must have known about 'Frog,' the socially conscious novel he published in China in 2009. While his other recent books, such as 'Life and Death Are Wearing Me Out' and 'POW!,' have taken a Monty Python approach to depicting life under Mao Zedong and his successors, 'Frog' is a more serious affair. Available in English for the first time, it grapples with China’s controversial one-child policy."

"But it turns out that although Chatel might be going it alone raising  20-month-old Jessey, she's getting some help supporting him--from us taxpayers."

From National Review Online

"Much has been written about privilege in academic settings over the past few decades. There’s the privilege of wealth, and the advantages wealth confers if a baby is lucky enough to be born into it. Much too has been written about the advantages of being born into this world as a Caucasian -- known in academia as 'white privilege.' But not enough has been written about the most important advantage a baby can have in America: the advantage of being born with a mother and father who happen to be married. Call it 'the marriage privilege' -- the advantages are startling."

From Hot Air

"Last week we saw a remarkable moment in journalism when Washington Post columnist (and MSNBC commentator) Jonathan Capehart wrote a column in which he was finally forced to acknowledge that Hands Up Don’t Shoot was founded on a lie. Being not only a black journalist himself, but a member in good standing of the Liberal Elite, this hit the mediasphere like a shock wave and Capehart was quickly treated to the sort of compassionate response from his fellow liberals which we’ve come to expect. (He was labeled as a 'house negro' by his allies.)

"Capehart’s sacrifice may not have been in vain. By showing the courage to say what he said, he may have prompted the New York Times Public Editor, Margaret Sullivan, to poke her head out of the closet a bit herself."

"Kara Tippetts didn’t choose the day she would die. On Sunday, March 22, the mother of four passed away, after close to three years of battling breast cancer.In her blog, Mundane Faithfulness, Tippetts chronicled what she did with her last weeks. She wrote about entering hospice care: 'My fight is for time and tenderness with my loves. My fight is to embrace the good moments hospice is giving me and loving my people well. It’s important -- these moments. All our moments are precious gifts.'"

From MaryDeMuth.com

"Scripture is clear for the person who follows Jesus, whether you like it or not, that His will is for us to live holy, pure, dedicated lives. If we are shamelessly pursuing sexual sin, then dismissing it as nothing at all, we have disregarded the outrageous grace Jesus gave the adulterous woman. We’ve only heard the 'neither do I condemn you,' and plugged our ears to Jesus’ very clear words of sinning no more."
