Serious work on abortion by female prolife scholars

In my previous post, I listed and linked to six books author by prolife authors, only one of which was not a college or university professor.   It was brought to my attention by writer Sara Pulliam Baily that none of the authors are women. She writes on twitter:@fbeckwith@between2worlds I could see the point that these authors aren't consulted. Also, are there women you'd add? Thanks for dialogue.— Sarah Pulliam Bailey (@spulliam) August 10, 2015 To which I repl … [Read more...]

Neuhaus’ Law and Beckwith’s Law

"Beckwith's Law" is the title of  the latest column I published over at The Catholic Thing. It concerns what I have dubbed, unsurprisingly,  "Beckwith's Law": Whenever a practitioner of a traditional vice appeals to the right of privacy as the justification for the state to leave him alone to engage in that vice, he will inevitably demand that the state require that those who morally disapprove of his practice cooperate with it, either materially or formally. My column begins this way: The l … [Read more...]

New hiding place for Snowden’s secrets

Apparently, the Russians--in old KGB style--have surgically inserted into their President all the secrets Ed Snowden brought with him to Moscow. Thus, you can say that the proof is in the Putin. … [Read more...]

The Sun’s Not Yellow, It’s Chicken: An Analogy for Chick-Fil-A Skeptics

I came cross this blog post last night via the Facebook wall of Hunter Baker. On that blog, called "The American Jesus," a young Christian man named Zack Hunt explains why he did not participate in "Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day." (For some reason, "The American Jesus"  cannot be accessed right now. Hopefully, it is only a temporary glitch).Although I very much appreciate the thought that went into Zack's post, I want to focus on one claim he makes: "Regardless, for me, dedicating a day to s … [Read more...]

The Joy of Calvinism

I just noticed that Greg Forster has published a new book, The Joy of Calvinism. Given the divisions that arose as a consequence of the movement that spawned Calvinism, perhaps a sequel to the book should be entitled The Joy of Sects. In all seriousness, Greg is a wonderful scholar, and the author of a three-part series that will be published at Public Discourse. The first installment is entitled "Evangelicals and Politics: The Hundred Years' War." … [Read more...]

When the Saint Goes Swearing: Mormonism and the Romney Candidacy

In 2007, I published an article at First Thing's On the Square, "When the Saint Goes Swearing In." It was a review essay of Hugh Hewitt's 2007 book, A Mormon in the White House? Given the scuttlebutt over comments made by the gentleman who introduced Governor Rick Perry at the Value Values Summit last year, the Rev. Robert Jeffress (Pastor, First Baptist Church, Dallas), as well as the strange stuff emanating from MSNBC,  my First Things review essay has become relevant again. Here's an … [Read more...]

What Reagan Can Teach Romney and Santorum

That's the title of my latest piece over at The Catholic Thing. Here's how it begins: American Conservative politicians are at a rhetorical disadvantage running for national office, not only because the national media are largely liberal. Our cultural vocabulary is infused with liberal assumptions. For this reason, many of us who largely agree with social and economic conservatism cringe when we listen to conservative politicians either struggling to convey a conservative answer without giving … [Read more...]
