    National Review ^ | 10/6/15 | Katherine Timpf
    A professor at the University of Pennsylvania called presidential candidate Ben Carson a “coon” because he said he’s cool with NASCAR flying Confederate flags during races if that’s what its fans want. “If only there was a ‘coon of the year’ award . . .” Religious Studies professor Anthea Butler tweeted last Tuesday in response to a tweet sharing a Sports Illustrated article about Carson’s comments. Her post has since been deleted, but not before a screenshot of it was captured, according to an article in Campus Reform.

    Over a 72-hour-period beginning Saturday evening, Hillary Clinton showed up on four NBC-related properties. How did she get so much air time? Three days, four appearances: Hillary Clinton just hit a free media jackpot on the NBCUniversal network. Over a 72-hour-period beginning Saturday evening, the Democratic front-runner showed up in rapid-fire succession on four NBC-related properties — “Saturday Night Live,” “Politics Nation with Al Sharpton” on MSNBC, a “Today Show” hosted town hall and an interview on Telemundo – a feat that’s left media consultants, competitors at rival networks and even some at NBC itself wondering how she got so...

    The debate team from New York's Eastern Correctional Facility has major bragging rights, after beating the national debate championship team from Harvard. In September, the inmates invited the Harvard team to the Napanoch prison for a friendly match.

"Students in the prison are held to the exact same standards, levels of rigor, and expectation as students on Bard's main campus," Max Kenner,...

  • Pope Francis' meeting with Kim Davis not a form of support, Vatican says

    The Vatican on Friday distanced Pope Francis from Kim Davis, the Kentucky clerk who went to jail for refusing to issue same-sex marriage licenses, saying she was one of dozens of people the pope greeted in the U.S. and that their meeting "should not be considered a form of support of her position." ....Vatican spokesman, the Rev. Federico Lombardi, said Francis met with "several dozen" people at the Vatican's embassy just before leaving Washington for New York. Lombardi said such meetings are par for the course of any Vatican trip and are due to the pope's "kindness and availability." He...

    Get ready. This is going to be an interesting year at the Oscars. The movies that are getting into position for Best Picture nominations are not “Driving Miss Daisy” material.

The film has an all star cast including Mark Ruffalo, Michael Keaton and Liev Schreiber. They will all be contenders in the Best Supporting Acto race. “Carol” is a love story about two lesbians in 1952 New York. Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara are the lovers, and their work is...

    In a massive coincidence, every single Hillary Clinton staffer and surrogate who watched the Democratic presidential candidate’s Meet the Press interview had the exact same thoughts, sometimes using identical language.... Now at first, it may appear that these responses were all coordinated in some fashion. However, it would be against the law for campaign officials to coordinate with a pro-Clinton Super PAC director like Brad Woodhouse. So clearly it’s a coincidence that his tweet was identical to Clinton staffer Karen Finney’s.

I got it: abortion is not a right or an entitlement. Abortion steals praise from God by denying image-bearers the opportunity to live through and for him. Abortion despises and attacks and destroys the image of God.”

I’ll let you decide which are which.But I thought it might be worthwhile to think about where private sector jobs come from. Most basically, new jobs come from people with money to spend who want to spend their money on more people. This means:(1) The employer must have money. He may spend his own money. Or he may borrow money from investors or the bank. But somehow he...

What are the differences that divide Roman Catholics and Protestants? Are they important? In this series, R.C.

But their luxury vehicles don’t venture into the neighborhood where millions live desperate lives in streets lined with trash and human filth.

    “There is one very serious defect to my mind in Christ’s moral character, and that is that He believed in hell.” So wrote the agnostic British philosopher Bertrand Russell in 1967. The idea of eternal punishment for sin, he further notes, is “a doctrine that put cruelty in the world and gave the world generations of cruel torture.”His views are at least more consistent than religious philosopher John Hick, who refers to hell as a “grim fantasy” that is not only “morally revolting” but also “a serious perversion of the Christian Gospel.” Worse yet was theologian Clark Pinnock who, despite having...
