Saturday Link Love: Radical Abolitionists, Cherry-Picked Stats, and Eve in the Garden February 4, 2017

Saturday Link Love is a new 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.

An Open Letter to Conservative Christian Parents from Your Liberal Children, on Reclamation Force—“We have spent our entire lives learning the intricate nuances of your views, not just the broad strokes. Please take the time to approach our views with genuine curiosity and learn about them too. For a while, this will require you to do much more listening than talking.”

Betsy DeVos Used Cherry-Picked Graduation Rates for Cyber Charters, on Education Week—“According to the Ohio education department, for example, the Ohio Virtual Academy has a four-year graduation rate of 53 percent, good for an “F” on the state’s accountability system. DeVos put the figure at 92 percent.”

What History Teaches Us about Trump’s Immigration Order, on Politico—““We went to bed one night old fashioned, conservative, Compromise Union Whigs & waked up stark mad Abolitionists.”

Don’t Punch Left When Monsters Dance on Your Right, on Radical Edward—“The blame game has gone on for about three months now and it’s really time to stop. It’s time to come together and build a real, broad coalition of resistance.”

The Best Way To ‘Discipline Without Damage,’ From Toddlers To Teens, on Fatherly—“Trying to be the law and order parent … often means fighting against the natural stages of your kid’s psychological and emotional development.”

Discourse in the Garden, on Amethyst Marie—“When I was a teenager, I heard a preacher whose name I’ve forgotten say that Eve fell prey to the Serpent because she tried to reason with him.”
