From National Review Online

'. . . We can never tolerate the injustice of laws that withdraw all recognition of the humanity of the unborn child from conception to birth. These are our brothers and sisters. I have always viewed the 'life issue' not as a single issue, but as a transcendent issue. Putting aside partisan politics, it should be clear that our society -- in social relations, political discourse, and just plain daily life -- is submerged in a simmering atmosphere of violence. The idea that we can unleash just a bit of violence, or use it against a limited class of people, and not have blood spill over everywhere is fantastical. I pray that I am wrong, but we are being pulled back and forth by volcanic forces. Awash in 'rights,' we are cruel to the innocent and the weak. There is no higher duty than to care for 'little ones.' It cannot end well when we consign that duty to the dustbin of history."

"Calling the court's action an 'ominous sign,' Alito wrote a stinging 15-page dissent for the three dissenting justices. 'If this is a sign of how religious liberty claims will be treated in the years ahead, those who value religious freedom have cause for great concern,' he wrote."

"For Nicolaou, the benefit religion provides is a sense of community, mutual support, and 'helping us understand our role in the cosmos.' As these ideas suggest, despite being unaffiliated, Nicolaou came to her quest with preconceptions about religion. Those preconceptions shaped her quest and limited what she would find as she meandered through four major religions and hundreds of congregations over a period of several years."

From The Weekly Standard

"The target Cervantes and Shakespeare attacked was the grandest myth of the Middle Ages: chivalry. It was a noble ideal and at its best it did much to refine an otherwise coarse and brutal world, but it rested on shaky foundations and had many unintended and disastrous consequences."

From Patheos

"Faith inevitably shapes politics. It cannot be otherwise, as faith speaks to ultimate questions -- the character and will of God, the purpose of life, the nature of man, the means of justice, and the path to human flourishing. All have broad and deep political implications and consequences. But perhaps one of the most important roles our faith plays in this election season is to remind us of the limits of politics."

"'What it means to be a Baptist is to support soul freedom for everybody,' Moore said during a report to Southern Baptists at the St. Louis gathering. 'And, brothers and sisters, when you have a government that says we can decide whether or not a house of worship can be constructed based upon the theological beliefs of that house of worship, then there are going to be Southern Baptist churches in San Francisco and New York and throughout this country who are not going to be able to build.'"

"How do we deal with the nonsensical lies of political opportunists and Christian bashers? I think our best bet is to take the Christian bashers seriously, to accept that they genuinely believe their own confabulations. Know that they are nuts, but don’t let them drag us down into their nutty vitriol. The crazier they get, the calmer we should become."
