From The Daily Signal

"Marriage has everything to do with uniting the two halves of humanity—men and women, as husbands and wives and as fathers and mothers—so that any children born of their union will know and be loved by the man and woman who gave them life. This is why principle-based policy has defined marriage as the union of one man and one woman. The argument over redefining marriage to include same-sex relationships is one over the nature of marriage. Same-sex marriage is the result of revisionism about marriage."

The terror group is demanding $6.6 million and the release of U.S. prisoners for the life of the young woman, who the family requested not be identified."

From Christianity Today

"The line between good and evil was drawn by two issues: creedal belief and sexual expression. If religious groups required set truths or limited sexual autonomy, they were bad—not just wrong but evil, narrow-minded, and too dangerous to be tolerated on campus.

"It didn't matter to them if we were politically or racially diverse, if we cared about the environment or built Habitat homes. It didn't matter if our students were top in their fields and some of the kindest, most thoughtful, most compassionate leaders on campus. There was a line in the sand, and we fell on the wrong side of it."

From The Washington Post

"What is called 'the' 1964 Civil Rights Act is justly celebrated for outlawing racial and other discrimination in employment, 'public accommodations' and elsewhere. But that year’s second civil rights act, the Criminal Justice Act, which is 50 years old this month, is, some say, largely a failure because of unanticipated changes in the legal and social context. Is it?"

From The Huffington Post

"The new accommodation will allow religious nonprofits, such as Catholic schools and hospitals, to opt out of covering birth control by notifying the Department of Health and Human Services of their objections. HHS and the Department of Labor will then arrange for a third-party insurer to pay for and administer the coverage for the nonprofits' employees so that women still receive the contraceptive coverage guaranteed to them by the Affordable Care Act."

From RedState

". . . I think as we descend into more cultural and societal chaos on the road to the last day, it will be more and more important for those of us in politics to decide which comes first, faith or politics. They can be balanced. I try, sometimes fail, but keep trying."

"In an age when giving can be as easy and fun as a YouTube video and a bucket of ice, the two Americans who contracted Ebola in Liberia remind us of a long line of missionaries and Christian aid workers who have labored out of the limelight at grave personal risk."

From Jesus Creed

"And now when things looked the worst for Kent Brantly, the world looked on the most. And as he was facing his own mortality, this husband and father of two, found out that there was an experimental serum that was being flown in to treat him and Nancy. But, as if it were a plot twist in a movie, once the medicine got there, they discovered that there was only enough for one person.

"And Kent offered it to Nancy."

"To teach children not to lie, extolling the virtues of honesty may be more effective than focusing on the punishing consequences of deception."

From The Crescat

"Women need to wean themselves off unrealistic rom-com movies, as well as television and literature that promotes unhealthy relationships. As a child of divorced parents, and myself a divorcee, what I really need is more exposure to examples of relationships that offer a genuine glimpse into real and true love. Go sell crazy somewhere else, I’m all stocked up."
