(1)The pope missed an opportunity to stand up for life, by Linda Chavez (New York Post)

For being dead, the Moral Majority (and Evangelical political involvement) sure gets a lot of print analysis these days:

(2)What Happens When the ‘Moral Majority’ Becomes a Minority?: Conservative Christian communities are split between doubling down on their advocacy, or walling themselves off from mainstream culture, by Laura Turner (The Atlantic)

(3)Donald Trump & the Rise of the Moral Minority, by Molly Worthen (New York Times

(4)Evangelicals aim to strengthen their political influence (Atlanta Journal-Constitution)

(5) SBC President Ronnie Floyd penned this FOX article: “Talking about the unborn: The key to capturing the heart of Evangelicals in 2016

***What he says is true. And, it could be paraphrased as, “So don’t blame us for voting almost entirely for the GOP, because we’re one-issue voters.” The ball is in your court Democrats. 

(bonus)Are You Really Middle Class?: The standard of living taken for granted in the 1960s is now affordable to very few, by Charles Hugh Smith (The American Conservative)

***When it comes to economic articles, a writer better put the cookies on the bottom shelf for me. Smith does just that in this article.
