Orthodox Jews keeping the covenant...

Sorry for pointing you to the token conservative at a very evil institution, but this piece by Brooks is instructive to Reformed Christians today. It's not the arguments over the law that interest me, but the discussion of continuity of covenant and the stats about marriage and childbearing of orthodox vs. conservative and entirely secular Jews. (Thanks, Dan.)

Having just finished Monsters from the Id, by E. Michael Jones, I came away from his book wanting to have 10 kids... just to thumb my nose at those who would attempt to control my sexuality (ahem). So I was struck by how the author of the article mentioned here repeatedly used the word "countercultural". I'd take it up a notch: having a family and faithfully serving your wife and ten children is just about the most countercultural, progressive thing you can do today.

As John Calvin might have said, Vive la réforme!

Reading the comments is instructive as well.  Predictable but unpleasant in the main.

Bookmarked this one the other day. "God said multiply and biy did she ever."
