Michael Anton, a lecturer at Hillsdale College and a Senior Fellow of the Claremont Institute, reviews a book on America’s founding by Thomas West. It is a long-form review, an essay as much as it is a review, and it’s about how we all get it wrong about America’s founding and America’s founders.
Thomas Kidd at The Gospel Coalition writes about the problems of polls, and especially polls involving what evangelicals think or don’t think (he takes issue with one published by USA Today). I’m reminded once again how all the political polls got the 2016 election exactly wrong.
Adam Ford was the founding editor of the The Babylon Bee, the satirical evangelical counterpart to The Onion. He tells a story about when the Facebook content police came looking for him the second time after Snopes claimed The Babylon Beehad published fake news. Snopes didn’t realize it was satire; the story went viral and Facebook was forced to apologize.
And before there was ISIS destroying cultural monuments, there was – the German army in World War I. James Clark at History Todayhas a sobering story about the destruction of medieval churches.
