Supreme Court Rules on Texas Abortion Case

Joe Carter has a FAQ about yesterday’s troubling ruling from the Supreme Court.

Abortion Forever

On the same subject, Rod Dreher says this: “The bottom line, it seems to me, is that the Supreme Court will never let any state restriction stand meaningfully in the way of the Sexual Revolution. Ever. No federalism, no democracy, not when it comes to defending the Sexual Revolution.”

7 Lies We Tell Our Children

“We all lie to our kids. Sometimes it’s on purpose and for what we deem a good purpose. Sometimes it’s because we so want them to believe something, to feel better, to overcome a challenge, or to work through pain that we will say anything to try to help. Sometimes it’s because we’re idiots and just don’t realize what we’re doing. Here are seven of the most common lies parents tell kids.”

The Trinitarian Debate: Some Reflections and Cautions

Exhortation to Students of Theology

Danny Hyde: “Since theological seminaries have recently held graduations and a new class of students will soon enter, I thought it would be a fun exercise to write a post on ‘the learned Doctor’ William Ames’ advice to theological students.”

Flashback: Death Is No Escape

Seven years ago today I was reflecting on attrocities and assuring myself and others that death is no escape from justice.
