  • “OK, so maybe when I turn the other cheek, I am demonstrating redemptive forgiveness. Is there ever a time when I should strike back?” — Katie

    A couple weeks ago, we discussed the reasons for why one would “turn the other cheek.” We acknowledged that the ethic of the New Testament is radical: forgiveness toward — even love for — enemies, is what is prescribed (Mt. 5:43-48). “Be at peace with all men, if at all possible” (Rom. 12:18; 14:19). This is the ideal.
    In the ancient scripture however, we can see the reality of the situation.
    The world is a broken, harsh place and bad stuff happens. This situation often demands a response.

  • Cancer weakened, but did not soften Christopher Hitchens. He did not repent or forgive or ask for pity. As if granted diplomatic immunity, his mind's eye looked plainly upon the attack and counterattack of disease and treatments that robbed him of his hair, his stamina, his speaking voice and eventually his life.

    "I love the imagery of struggle," he wrote about his illness in an August 2010 essay in Vanity Fair. "I sometimes wish I were suffering in a good cause, or risking my life for the good of others, instead of just being a gravely endangered patient."

  • LOS ANGELES (AP) — Hollywood’s holidays are off to a dreadful start: Fewer people went to the movies the last two weekends than during the box-office hush that followed the Sept. 11 attacks 10 years ago.
    Domestic revenues tumbled to a 2011 low of about $77 million this weekend, when the star-filled, holiday-themed romance “New Year’s Eve” debuted at No. 1 with a weak $13.7 million, according to studio estimates Sunday.
    It’s the worst weekend in more than three years, since the weekend after Labor Day in 2008, when revenues amounted to $67.6 million, according to box-office tracker Hollywood.com. And it comes after an $81 million total a week earlier that had been this year’s previous low.

  • ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — His mythical exploits and jail escapes made this son of Irish immigrants one of the nation’s most famous Old West outlaws. Yet fewer know that the man widely known as Billy the Kid was a central figure in a violent, Irish-English land war in New Mexico, and was beloved by Mexican-American ranchers who felt discriminated against by racist white bankers and land thieves.
    And the Kid’s end came only after he refused to abandon his Mexican-American teen girlfriend.
