#FosterCareMonth Favor to Ask: Spread the Word about Upcoming Forum in D.C.

I’m hosting a foster-care forum in Washington, D.C., on May 24. We’ll have the incoming chair of the U.S. bishops’ pro-life office, Archbishop Joseph Naumann of Kansas City. The event will include foster parents, policymakers, researchers, and people who have made it their loving business to connect children and families. With the current opioid crisis, the foster-care system is unsustainable. But on any day, orphans ought to be on the minds and in the prayers of those who believe themselves to be adopted sons and daughters of God. It’s part of the Christian mission, which is why you want people of faith to always be providing homes and connections. We also want to raise awareness about need and resources. The goal of the forum is to be educational, emphasizing what a priority we all need to be making of foster care and adoption and highlighting resources, so no one walks away without potential action items. We’re hoping for an audience of people who can add to the conversation or may want to contribute to the solution. If you know anyone who will be in D.C. that morning (perhaps including from out of town for the National Catholic Prayer Breakfast — our forum will be immediately following it in the same hotel), please let them know about our event. Thank you! Details are here. Thank you!

The End of Hong Kong as We Know It

The protests in Hong Kong have been going on for more than four months now, and no matter how the current crisis concludes in the coming days or weeks, it will mark the end of Hong Kong as we know it.

Another Pop-Culture Christian Loses His Faith

It’s happened again. For the second time in three weeks, a prominent (at least in Evangelical circles) Christian has renounced his faith. In July, it was Josh Harris, a pastor and author of the mega-best-selling purity-culture book I Kissed Dating Goodbye. This month, it’s Hillsong United songwriter and ... Read More

Max Boot’s Dishonesty

Before yesterday, my primary criticism of the Washington Post’s Max Boot was political in nature. As I wrote in a recent book review, I found it regrettable that Boot’s opposition to the president had not prevented him from “succumbing reactively to Trump’s cult of personality, or from making Trump the ...
