What We’re Reading September 18, 2015

We hope you’re having a great day wherever you are and that the news we dig up for you this morning helps you navigate the day more efficiently!

It’s a busy world out there, and you don’t have a ton of free time to be doing Internet searches for the most important items of the day… lucky for you, we do. We drink gallons of coffee in an effort to stay awake long enough to scour the far reaches of the world wide web in an effort to bring you the most important, useful and useless information every single day.

You’re welcome.

So without further ado, here’s what we’re reading Friday, September 18, 2015.

Liberty University just showed liberal colleges what it means to actually be tolerant, welcoming and generous. They also displayed the real intellectual curiosity that should be present in places of higher learning.

Sanders delivered a speech with no interruptions or mass protest. There was no jeering. No one held up signs denouncing Sanders as a baby-killing progressive. As far as I could tell, Sanders had no need of security guards or police protection. Moreover, Liberty students received no trigger warnings prior to Sanders’s speech. Nor did the school provide campus “safe spaces” where students could seek calm and coddling after being traumatized by his leftist ideas.

Could it be that Liberty University demonstrated the fruits that follow from an atmosphere that prioritizes respect, kindness, and a forthright willingness to engage with those who hold opposing views?

Have evangelicals who support Donald Trump lost their values?

Jesus taught his disciples to “count the cost” of following him. We should know, he said, where we’re going and what we’re leaving behind. We should also count the cost of following Donald Trump. To do so would mean that we’ve decided to join the other side of the culture war, that image and celebrity and money and power and social Darwinist “winning” trump the conservation of moral principles and a just society.

Muslim man arrested after entering a church in Texas with a gun and threatening that people would die.

Gun Owners of America (one of the nation’s largest 2nd Amendment groups) has officially endorsed Ted Cruz for President and was very happy with his performance during Wednesday night’s GOP debate.

“It’s obvious that Senator Cruz follows the Constitution, not a political party,” said GOA Chairman Tim Macy.  “We need a stalwart defender of the Second Amendment in the White House, and Ted Cruz will help shoulder the burden of fighting against the gun grabbers dedicated to eviscerating the Second Amendment.”

A poll of Republicans who watched Wednesday night’s debate has some bad news for Donald Trump and some great news for Carly Fiorina.

Whataburger has fired an employee in Texas who refused to serve a police officer.

Is it “just a matter of time” before Joe Biden makes things official?
