"First, there is a solid religion angle here as the Baylor Regents try to defend their school, while repenting at the same time. Does Baylor want to live out its own moral doctrines? That's a complicated question that will lead to hard decisions, sooner or later. This deserves serious coverage by religion-beat professionals.

"And then there will be sports reporters covering the Baylor crisis and the complicated sexual-assault issues on those 200 or so other campuses."

"'What happens is not to go straight to shaming and sharing this, but find out . . . all facts, what happened, why did she do this, who else was involved and what was their role. She needs to be prayed for and encouraged, not degraded and discouraged,' said Estrem."

". . . The visit was marred by signals that Vietnam, a one-party state, remains unwilling to cede ground on freedom of speech, with several noted advocates of democratic reforms prevented from meeting with Obama as scheduled and with the government staging a sham election to the country’s communist-run parliament on the day of Obama’s arrival."

From The Washington Post

"Somewhere, maybe at this very moment, neurologists are trying to figure out what all this screen time is doing to the still-forming brains of people Katherine’s age, members of what’s known as Generation Z. Educators are trying to teach them that not all answers are Googleable. Counselors are prying them out of Internet addictions. Parents are trying to catch up by friending their kids on Facebook. (P.S. Facebook is obsolete.) Sociologists, advertisers, stock market analysts -- everyone wants to know what happens when the generation born glued to screens has to look up and interact with the world."

From Public Discourse

"What will happen when all of society is sexless in both language and law? If the law does not recognize your body as physically male or female—applying only the word 'gender' to your internal, self-reported self-perception—does the law even recognize your body? Every single cell of you has either 'male' or 'female' written into its DNA, but the law refuses to recognize such categories. Such laws will only recognize an infinite, immeasurable 'gender spectrum,' your place on which is determined only by your mind. So what exactly are you after the law has de-sexed you? In what sense is your body a legal entity?"

"Both would come to realize that many people on the other side of the issue were sincere, passionate and had similar values. Mary would come to learn that Drew wasn’t motivated by 'hate,' but by fear and traumatic memories that had left scars. Despite their differences, Drew would come to see Mary as someone to trust."

From The Corner

"It is incumbent upon all of us to separate out the infuriating politics of the issue from the heartbreaking tragedy of the human victims of sexual radicalism. Many of the angriest of the activists are people in deep despair, who’ve destroyed their own bodies and can never recover their physical selves. I’ll oppose their ideology to my last breath, but they deserve our prayers, our compassion, and our aid. They have been deceived."

From NBC Charlotte

"Newly released 911 tapes show tense moments after a baby may or may not have survived an abortion at a Phoenix family planning clinic back in February.

"The incident struck a chord with many pro-life advocates, who held a vigil and protested the incident. Others wondered about not only the legality, but the morality of the incident."

"United Methodists have taken major steps toward affirming the sanctity of all human life during their denomination’s quadrennial General Conference meeting last week in Portland, Oregon.

"On the final day of the May 10-20 gathering, delegates voted to delete a four-decade old statement from the denomination’s Book of Resolutions which affirmed the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision striking down state laws restricting abortion."
