When one fully embraces cultural relativism, human rights violations––like funeral pyres and child sex abuse––become very difficult to identify.
We feel, almost instinctively, that it is wrong to meddle with the DNA of an unborn human being, but we don’t know why we feel that way, nor can we articulate it.
The less prone we are to self-examination, the more self-aggrandizing we become in our denunciations. It’s making our society harsher.
A lot of reviewers see ‘Chappaquiddick’ as a long-overdue look at the cowardice of a man who lived 40 years basking in adulation as the ‘lion of the Senate.’ I’m not so sure.
We would be remiss if we scratched out the peaks and valleys of human experience inside fairy tales. Not only would it be highly inaccurate, it would not inspire us to anything.
Male predators conveniently, although perhaps subconsciously, used feminism as a shield. But it was feminism that allowed them to engage in such behavior.

People who embrace extremist behavior such as terrorist acts demonstrate convincing evidence of a failure to assimilate into the culture in which they reside.

We log hundreds of hours of couch time with heavy-handed romanticizing of sin and darkness. It’s bad for TV and for our souls.
Jack Kerouac would have hated me, because I took his work seriously rather than as cautionary tales. So did the entire Beat generation.
His insight into Islam at a time England was preoccupied—with Hitler, communism abroad, and a fascist movement at home—was exceptional. And penetrating.
If it is accurate to call both conservative Paul Ryan and progressive Elizabeth Warren extremists, does that mean the right thing to do is to average out their ideological differences?
While people like J.K. Rowling who react to name-calling mean well, their case for civility is undermined by their own political philosophy and ethical propositions.
This pope’s inclination to advance an ideological stance over rational judgment does not bode well for Catholicism or the future of the West. Willful blindness endangers both.
