  • Are Christians Too Nice? Why Christians need to stop being wimps

    PJ Media ^ | 03/20/2017 | Daniel J. Phillips
     In a piece over at Fox News, Larry Alex Taunton argued that evangelicals “need to stop being wimps.” (A glance at the URL suggests that the writer’s original title may have been a bit saltier.) Taunton makes a vividly argued case.As an example of wimpiness, he adduces Barnabas Piper, famous for being the son of John Piper. Writing at WORLD, Piper reassured the world that he’d not eat at Chick-fil-A to support a fellow-believer targeted by “gay agenda” activists et al for the compounded crimes of (a) being a Christian (b) out-loud and (c) in public. Piper was very...
  • Catholic university drops Crusaders mascot: ‘troublesome, offensive’

    Alvernia University has dropped its “Crusaders” mascot, saying many have found it “troublesome, even offensive.” “Even more important, they view the image as opposed to the peace and harmony of ‘right relationships’ modeled by St. Francis and the spirit of inclusiveness for which Franciscans strive,” officials with the Franciscan-Catholic university in Pennsylvania state on their website. In a Frequently Asked Questions page, officials reject the notion that the decision is steeped in political correctness. “It’s a matter of being true to our Franciscan mission and our core values of service, humility, peacemaking, contemplation, and collegiality,” they state. “This change is...

    Tyler Durden/Glenn Harlan Reynolds November 14, 2016 Authored by Glenn Harlan Reynolds, first posted in USA Today With puppies, Play-doh and coloring books, safe spaces and therapy sessions turn universities into a joke. One of the more amusing bits of fallout from last week’s election has been the safe-space response of many colleges and universities to the election of the “wrong” candidate. But on closer examination, this response isn’t really amusing. In fact, it’s downright mean. Trump’s substantial victory, when most progressives expected a Hillary landslide, came as a shock to many. That shock seems to have been multiplied in...

    Donald J. Trump has some advice for panicked Republicans in Washington who are melting down over his most incendiary statements: Man up. “Politicians are so politically correct anymore, they can’t breathe,”Mr. Trump said in an interview Tuesday afternoon as fellow Republicans forcefully protested his ethnically charged criticism of a federal judge overseeing a lawsuit against the defunct Trump University. “The people are tired of this political correctness when things are said that are totally fine,” he said during an interlude in a day of exceptional stress in the Trump campaign. “It is out of control. It is gridlock with their...

    Seeing the Chicago Rally with a fresh perspective: On 9-11-01 most of the passengers in the commercial jets cooperated with terrorists. Why? Political correctness dictated that they do so. Who turned out to be right? The passengers of United 93 -- this century's first stark example of patriotic courage. At the Chicago rally most of the Trump supporters avoided confrontations. Who turned out to be right? In that case there was NO WAY that any patriotic civilian could do the right thing. The law plays favorites against patriotism, especially in thuggish hellholes like Chicago. So sure, a man could keep...

    On Tuesday afternoon, Republicans will vote to confirm Wilhelmina Marie Wright, a sitting member of the Minnesota state Supreme Court, to the United States District Court for the District of Minnesota. Just who is Ms. Wright? Writing a short entry for the UCLA Law Review in 1990 (page 18-19 of PDF), Ms. Wright brazenly asserted that, "[T]he practice of American racism is based on two principles: the sanctity of property and the belief in the hierarchy of races." She concludes as follows: The failure of today's racial discourse is its reliance on the notion that property is neutral, that the...

    All youth football games would be required to have a doctor present to monitor possible concussions as part of legislation considered Friday by the New York City Council. The hearing focused on the safety of young players who are even more vulnerable to brain injuries than their counterparts in high school, college and professional leagues. “It’s too common that kids are taught that getting your bell rung is OK and you need to play through it,” said Councilman Corey Johnson, a Democrat from Manhattan. “Repeated concussions can cause lifelong health injuries especially when the brain does not have time to...

    Physicists Resurrect an Old, ‘Strange’ Dark Matter Theory Written by Michael Byrne Editor November 5, 2014 // 09:15 AM EST Dark matter might not be nearly as exotic as most theories about the stuff suggest. Instead, it could be macroscopic clumps of material formed from common particles already found within the Standard Model of particle physics. This argument comes courtesy of physicists at Case Western University, as presented in a new paper posted to the arXiv pre-print server. Dark matter is usually thought of in terms of exotic, so-far undiscovered particles. The leading candidates are known as weakly interacting massive particles,...

    A Christian college in Wisconsin is dropping its “Crusaders” nickname after nearly 50 years, claiming the moniker has become outdated in a “more global society,” university officials told FoxNews.com. Maranatha Baptist University in Watertown and its Division III athletic teams have used the name since its founding in 1968. Matt Davis, the university’s executive vice president, said no complaints have been received by the school and stressed that it coincides with its name change from Maranatha Baptist College in December. “But I also agree that times change and we understand that context changes,” Davis told FoxNews.com. “Our world has changed...

Must be an Aunt Loretta somewhere in the Obama family tree. Wonder if she’s an illegal alien living off American taxpayers too? And, speaking of that pitch, most girls throw better.

    The Democratic National Committee will mount an aggressive messaging counteroffensive during New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s upcoming fundraising trip to Florida, a DNC official said Tuesday. Christie will visit the Sunshine State this weekend on a fundraising tour for Gov. Rick Scott, who is up for reelection later this year. This will be Christie’s first major fundraising effort as president of the Republican Governors Association and his first major trip out of New Jersey since becoming embroiled in the George Washington Bridge scandal.... Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the DNC chairwoman, will tail Christie in her home state, “rolling out the...

    ajama Boy’s place in Internet infamy was secured as soon as the insufferable man-child was tweeted out by Organizing for America. He is the face of a web ad that is the latest effort by the Obama team to leverage the holidays for conversation about Obamacare. “Wear pajamas,” the ad reads. “Drink hot chocolate. Talk about getting health insurance. #GetTalking.” And, sure enough, Pajama Boy is wearing pajamas—a zip-up onesie in classic Lamar Alexander plaid—and drinking hot chocolate. He is in his twenties, sporting hipster glasses he could have bought at Warby Parker and an expression of self-satisfied ironic amusement....
  • Kids flee football in light of NFL violence, Pop Warner participation plummeting

    The Washington Times ^ | Thursday, November 28, 2013 | Nathan Fenno
    For Eddie Mason, the decision wasn’t difficult. The NFL veteran’s 10-year-old son, Tyler, won’t play tackle football until high school. Mr. Mason’s decision wasn’t a result of the burgeoning national discussion about football’s role in brain injuries. Instead, he believes children should learn the game’s fundamentals without tackling. Mr. Mason, who played three seasons at linebacker for the Redskins before retiring in 2003, sees a problematic culture infecting football’s lowest levels that’s inextricably connected to the safety concerns. “This brash kind of mindset, the underdog mindset,” Mr. Mason said, “this hard-core attitude kind of deal about who hits the hardest...

    Last weekend I was on a soft foam playground with my little girl, and I reflected on how different things were when I was a kid, shortly after dinosaurs roamed the earth. Playgrounds then were asphalt-covered, jagged-edged death traps for kids, but we didn’t know any differently and our parents weren’t freaked out about it. I vividly remember once hanging upside down from monkey bars and dropping onto concrete directly on my head (now that I think about it, that hit probably explains quite a bit about me). It’s a wonder that my generation survived childhood. What concerns me today...

    “[I] mean, Mitch McConnell’s line is now, ‘Oh, just let — Obamacare is going to be so self-evidently destructive that when we win our spectacular victory in the Senate election and the next presidential election, we will be able to repeal it and roll it back.’ When do the Republicans ever do that? Those Carter-era innovations like the entirely useless federal Department of Education, the federal Energy Department, even the National Endowment of the Arts — when for decades it has been mocked for giving public monies to crucifixes floating in urine, homoerotic photography involving bullwhips attractively positioned — none...

    Enlarge Left panel: Air molecules whiz around at a variety of speeds, and some are very fast. When they collide with both heavy and light elements - for example, xenon (purple) and silicon (orange) - these fast moving particles have enough momentum to affect both nuclei. Right panel: Dark matter particles are moving more slowly and are less able to affect the heavy xenon nucleus. As a result, detectors made from lighter materials like silicon may prove to be more effective at picking up signals of dark matter.
