With the Kansas City Royals winning the franchise's second World Series Sunday night, Royals second baseman Ben Zobrist explained who the real winner was when asked about his emotions on winning his first World Series.

We hear a lot about acceptance and diversity these days. But what happens when acceptance is inconvenient?
As you may know, Chuck Colson's grandson, Max, is autistic, a diagnosis he shares with the son of a friend and colleague of mine. Max got Chuck to thinking a lot about what Christians mean when they talk about human dignity.
I can't help but wonder what Chuck would have made of a recent story from Sunnyvale, California.
