Chris Pratt accepting the Generation Award at the MTV Movie Awards shared with the audience and those watching on TV some essential truths.
Shane Vander Hart: As Christians, we are called to love our neighbors, and that includes our LGBTQ neighbors. We are to love them as ourselves. We should also tell them the truth.
Collin Brendemuehl: Jonah Goldberg’s work is useful. It’s a little short-sighted in its rejection of Burke. He paints a proper picture of the swamp. He understands the problem of Marx and Darwin in politics. And he clarifies the conservative principle well that economic class is mutable.
On Friday, May 25th Ireland will vote on whether or not to remove the 8th amendment that bans abortion unless the woman’s life is threatened. John Gustavsson who is in Ireland canvassing for the pro-life cause gives an update.
Collin Brendemuehl: In Avengers: Infinity War there is a subtext of honesty that conservatives should recognize and acknowledge. It’s something we’ve been looking forward to seeing for several decades. I dare say that this movie is making pro-life overtures.
Ben Shapiro speaking at Liberty University’s Convocation, North America’s largest weekly gathering of Christian students, said, “Breaking down the family is a precondition to building up the state.”
Shane Vander Hart: Kevin Williamson’s firing at The Atlantic is an example of the left silencing those with whom they disagree. If he is “too extreme,” what influential conservative voice out there do they believe isn’t?
Shane Vander Hart: Governor Matt Bevin (R-KY) gave an incredible response to the question of how one can value children’s lives and still oppose gun control. He discussed how gun violence is a cultural problem, not a gun problem.
Tucker Carlson during his show on Fox News on Wednesday night kicked off a series focusing on men in America who he says are in a crisis that is being ignored.
David Lantz: For much of our history, character education taught what researcher Charles Murray calls America’s four founding virtues: Honesty, industriousness, marriage, and religion. Today, these founding virtues are being destroyed, leading to the unraveling of We the People.
Collin Brendemuehl: Everybody thinks systematically including evangelicals. We interpret everything around us according to our frame of reference, which is certainly more than a mere mental state.
Steve C. Sherman: We need to protect our kids as much as Binny’s Beverage Depot protects its booze! It is time to place armed guards in schools.
Marilyn Singleton: In today’s climate where some black leaders imply that white Americans are racists, only personal experiences can slay that fire-breathing dragon.
Collin Brendemuehl: All of us who are evangelical — pentecostal, fundamental, reformed, Anabaptist — we all share in something that lets us fellowship. Of course, we don’t agree on all of it. But we do share in Christ and common core truths.
Collin Brendemuehl: It is not that conservatism and evangelicalism go hand-in-hand. There is no theological or political bond between them. Evangelicalism existed before conservatism and will exist after it is gone.
Collin Brendemuehl: There is not an acceptable side to the eugenics movement, but not all of it is overtly ugly and remains a big part of our pop culture.
