Saturday Link Love: President Pence, Orphans Who Aren’t, and Nice Rapists

Saturday Link Love is a feature where I collect and post links to various articles I’ve come upon over the past week. Feel free to share any interesting articles you’ve come along as well! The more the merrier.

The Danger of President Pence, on The New Yorker—“He just inhabits a different reality. It’s very difficult for him to lay aside the social agenda. He’s a zealot.”

The “Orphan” I Adopted from Uganda Already Had a Family, on CNN—“Once, someone suggested that I just not tell anyone what she had told us. Other times, I was told that it was my Christian duty to keep her and ‘raise her in the proper faith.'”

I Have Been Raped by Far Nicer Men than You, on The Root—“‘Nah, that’s just my dude Milton,’ he responded, as if this man hadn’t made himself known to me.”

The Myth of Judeo-Christian Values, on the Stonekettle Station—“There is it, Judeo-Christian values. Undefined. Unexplained. Unspecific.”
