Where Kristoff Gets It Right and Wrong

I actually really like self-professedly liberal New York Times columnist Nick Kristoff. He really seems to love his neighbor in a genuine way. He’s also willing to praise conservatives and be open about his own views without hiding behind a veil of neutrality (he is an opinion columnist, of course).

But, seriously, his recommendation to build strong families is to kill off the extraneous members? If this seems normal to you, shake yourself. This is the level of unreality even pretty clear thinkers—and nice guys—like Kristoff have reached. It is never okay to kill your own child, made in God’s image as you are.
