It's happening again. A prominent figure of the political Right is being accused of preying on women and betraying the ideals of the conservative movement, yet rather than confront him, conservatives are rallying to his defense.
I was prepared to hate The Shack. But after seeing it once, I had a strong sense that someone I love dearly needed to see the movie — someone who had walked away from God but was softening towards him. We saw it together, we cried, and then ...
Today thousands of women around the country will skip work, wear red and attend rallies in honor of "A Day Without a Woman," the first major event by organizers of the Women's March since the actual march in January.
