This week Donald Trump came out against the recent spate of anti-trans bathroom bills. Ted Cruz sensed an opportunity, and ran an incredibly offensive ad repeating the lie that allowing trans women to use the women’s bathroom is a threat to women and children. It’s interesting to note, though, who the ad is directed toward. Click through to read more about the historical context and gendered dimension of Cruz’s ad. Read more

We start out in Peter’s conference room, which we’re told was “rather small” but still “large enough for the deposition of Donna Corliss, scheduled for Wednesday, July 27, at 9:00 in the morning.” Basically, Peter is going to ask Donna questions. Farris tells us that Peter spent three hours the previous day going over everything to make sure he was ready, and that he was trying not to let the “glamour” of the discovery of tampering “distract” him from the remainder of the case. Read more

Yesterday I posted an email from a reader about a speaker at her Catholic high school. I spent some time dissecting a number of the things this reader reported that the speaker said, and spoke briefly about the differences and similarities in evangelical and Catholic teachings about sex, purity, and marriage. Today I want to get into these differences in a bit more depth and look a bit further at this particular speaker—Jason Evert—and his organization. Read more

I would be remiss if I didn’t address the most unfortunate side effect of this teaching, though—I have watched couples rush into marriage because they want to have sex and believe they have to wait until marriage. This is only compounded by further problems. For example, the claim that if you truly love each other you will wait until marriage to have sex can lead couples to mistake a desire to wait for love. Read more

We can walk into a grocery store confident that there is nothing for sale there that will cause us to sicken and die upon eating it because of the government. I don’t think we realize how significant this is—or how important. This is perhaps a case where government protections and regulation have been so successful that we as a population have largely forgotten why we needed them in the first place. Today, let’s take a moment to remember, and to appreciate having a government big enough to create and maintain such protections. Read more

Say what you want about the side of this bill that makes it harder for abortion clinics to operate, requiring women who miscarry at home to collect their miscarriage and either contract with a funeral home or take it to a health care facility, on pain of penalty, is one of the most inhumane things I have read in a very long time, and has nothing whatsoever to do with abortion. Read more

I mean for goodness sake, what is this whole “I’ll set you free” bit? They’re not together. Or are they? Are they sorta kinda together? Is Peter aware how unethical this is, as her lawyer? Apparently the only matters Peter’s willing to think deeply about are spiritual matters, and they don’t include rules about things like, oh, sexually harassing your client, who by the way doesn’t have the money to get another lawyer. Read more
