I have interviewed 16 different individuals since the start of 2015 who are considering running for the GOP nomination in 2016, and give you an early take on the field in today’s Washington Examiner column.

One Reason Christianity Wins

Monday, April 27, 2015  |  posted by John Schroeder

Writing in “The Week,” Damon Linker tells the story of the shunning on a very accomplished young man because he *shudder* supports traditional marriage.  Hardly the first story of its kind (“shunning” is what everyone from photographers t pizza shops have suffered) but Linker points out this is a bit different:

It’s important to be clear about what’s at stake here. This isn’t about politics or the law. Unlike the recent RFRA disputes in Indiana and Arkansas, it has nothing to do with religious freedom or state power. Anderson has no right to be celebrated on the website of his alma mater. The Friends School of Baltimore can likewise link to or remove a link to anyone it wants for whatever reason.

The controversy is nonetheless important because of what it tells us about the cultural endgame of the gay-rights movement. The reaction of those who raised objections to the link as well as the decision of the head of school to remove the link and offer an abject apology for posting it — both of these are depressing signs that liberal public opinion is evolving in the direction of theological certainties and illiberal forms of intolerance. These so-called liberals want Anderson to be shunned. Expelled from the community. Excommunicated from civilized life. Ostracized from the ranks of the decent.

Linker, a proponent of same-sex marriage, then goes on to argue quite convincingly about why this sort of thing must be stopped.  Read the piece for yourself.  I cannot improve on his argument.  But I do think this story speaks to the cultural superiority of Christianity. Continue Reading

Hillary Thinks She Is Bigger Than God

Thanks to Ed Morrisey for pointing this out.

Hillary Clinton last night addressing the sixth annual Women in The World Summit:

“Far too many women are denied access to reproductive health care and safe childbirth, and laws don’t count for much if they’re not enforced. Rights have to exist in practice — not just on paper,” Clinton said.

“Laws have to be backed up with resources and political will,” she explained. “And deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed. As I have said and as I believe, the advancement of the full participation of women and girls in every aspect of their societies is the great unfinished business of the 21st century and not just for women but for everyone — and not just in far away countries but right here in the United States.” [emphasis added]

Do I even need to comment on this? Continue Reading
