Ruth Institute Video Contest

I am a great fan (and board member) of the Ruth Institute, and I’m especially a fan of their great outreach to college students. I thought some Corner readers might be interested in a video contest they are sponsoring to allow proactive young people to put in a good word for marriage and lifelong love. The “Reel Love Video Challenge” is even offering cash awards.

I have spoken at the institute’s last two “It Takes a Family” events. They are serious about what they do, and the results are inspiring. Those who are (or know) young adults and college students would do well to check out the website about the challenge. They start accepting submissions on September 20, and the contest will go until February 1. You can also go to the website to vote for submissions.

Students’ Anti-Gun Views

The Left seems to have a particularly hard time deciding these days. Take, for example, the high-school students from Parkland, ... Read More

Kill Chic

We live in a society in which gratuitous violence is the trademark of video games, movies, and popular music. Kill this, shoot that in repugnant detail becomes a race to the visual and spoken bottom. We have gone from Sam Peckinpah’s realistic portrayal of violent death to a gory ritual of metal ripping ... Read More
