7 Problems with Trump’s Hastily-Tweeted Trans Military Ban

…30977 Trump’s actions might not even be lawful Because we, as Americans, have never had a commander-in-chief who issues what amount to executive orders in 140-character bursts on social media, it’s unclear to what extent this particular edict carries the weight of law. However, because the President serves as the Commander-in-Chief of the armed forces, his Twitter proclamations do have ramifications—like the Pentagon promising it will issue revise…

Why the ‘Confession & Redemption’ Path is Unlikely to Help Falwell Recover from Sex Scandal

…randa (now forever known as the Falwells’ Pool Boy), “in which I was not involved.” Granda, however, claims that the Falwells exploited him when he was young and naïve, and that Jerry would watch him have sex with Becki. The text messages and audio he provided to Reuters seem quite damning, making Falwell look only more ridiculous in his denial of Granda’s narrative. Monday offered plenty of exciting will-he-or-won’t-he drama around Falwell’s resi…

Christian Nationalism Was the Loser of Tuesday’s Debate

…president should try to move the U.S. Embassy back from Jerusalem to Tel Aviv. Before proceeding, I must first pause to arch an eyebrow at the way this question was only posed directly to the Jewish candidates, as Twitter user @JillSteinberg3 pointed out: “Apparently the question was directed only at the Jews on the stage. So very bizarre. My heart sunk.” It was good to see Sanders and Warren both argue for the U.S.’s traditional foreign policy g…

There’s Nothing Wrong with ‘Prayer’; But There’s Every Reason to be Skeptical of Pence’s Coronavirus Prayer Circle

…“regular,” “real,” and “normal,” in this context are often code for “conservative white Christians”? Might Merritt have devoted a thought or two to the possibility that American criticism of “thoughts and prayers” responses to real-world problems have everything to do with the fact that right-wing Christians—white evangelicals above all—constitute the one demographic that stands in the way of us seriously addressing our gun violence problem? As Da…

“Digital Discipline”: Five Questions on #ReLent2016

…l media is the conduit for that. What advantages does virtual observance have over in-person participation? Twitter offers a very real way to articulate one’s self for those who normally would have trouble communicating in person. For those who are painfully shy or live with autism and may not be able to talk or engage at our in-person events, social media gives them a chance to make their voice heard. Those people really benefit from social media…

Including Bono on Glamour’s “Women of the Year” List is Two Steps Backwards

…with women. We’re largely responsible for the problem, so we have to be involved in the solutions.” I don’t disagree that men have an important role to play in combatting the pallor of sexism that permeates global society. But efforts that speak directly to other men, like the White House-backed “It’s On Us” campaign to stop sexual assault and domestic violence, seem like they have a greater chance of reaching men who need to hear this message th…

Leper Messiah: A Jesus Freak’s Search for the Meaning of Bowie—A Critical Novella

…ds shtick was as formalized as the laying-on of hands at a faith-healing revival—a spotlit rite of communion between a worshipful crowd, desperate to touch the “leper messiah” (“Ziggy Stardust”), and a star who flirted with delusions of messianic grandeur. In truth, Bowie was haunted by the fear that he would be rock’s first martyr, a blood sacrifice to celebrity culture. He exorcized his fear (even as he indulged his Saint Sebastian complex) befo…

Reactions to Biden’s Korean-American Secret Service Agent Expose Christian Nationalism’s Anti-Asian Side

…norities in contempt, “the Chinese”―and, by extension, Asians in general―have come to play a kind of puppetmaster role in the white supremacist imaginary, fueling attacks not only on Asians, but also on Black and Jewish Americans. It’s therefore in a spirit of solidarity that I invite Asians of all creeds, and allies of all backgrounds, to sign the open letter. For Agent David Cho, drawing fire is part of the job description. The rest of us, howev…
