America has outgrown its ‘Judeo-Christian’ label. What’s next? | Eboo Patel

America has outgrown its ‘Judeo-Christian’ label. What’s next? | Eboo Patel

When I go to college campuses, one of the ways I like to open my talk is I say, when the Mayflower Pilgrims landed on the eastern seaboard and they approached Plymouth Rock, they dusted it off, they saw etched on the stone the words, “Judeo-Christian nation.” And there’ll be a long pause, and all these 19-year-olds who did really well on their standardized tests will like look up at me, like, “Wow.” And then I’ll slowly start shaking my…

Understanding what tolerance means in a highly polarized America | Sarah Ruger

One of the most important things we need to focus on with respect to free expression is figuring out what constitutes a culture that values it. We’re pretty fortunate in the U.S. to have relatively robust free expression rights. I mean, there’s certainly a need to start defining and grappling with what those rights mean in a digital age as the public square moves online as opposed to in the physical arena, and certainly philanthropy has a role to play…

3 lessons of revolutionary love in a time of rage | Valarie Kaur

3 lessons of revolutionary love in a time of rage | Valarie Kaur

(Sikh Prayer) Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh. There is a moment on the birthing table that feels like dying. The body in labor stretches to form an impossible circle. The contractions are less than a minute apart. Wave after wave, there is barely time to breathe. The medical term: “transition,” because “feels like dying” is not scientific enough.

Paper towns and why learning is awesome | John Green

This is a map of New York State that was made in 1937 by the General Drafting Company. It’s an extremely famous map among cartography nerds, because down here at the bottom of the Catskill Mountains, there is a little town called Roscoe — actually, this will go easier if I just put it up here — There’s Roscoe, and then right above Roscoe is Rockland, New York, and then right above that is the tiny town of Agloe, New…
