The Christian understanding of the good can’t be fully realized apart from the Christian understanding of God. Those values we’d assumed to be universal flow from a very specific worldview, with a God, revealed in Jesus, and man is made in His image.

If the berating of Nicholas Christakis made students “snowflakes,” the same can be said of the guy in New York who was set off by restaurant workers speaking Spanish to each other or the woman who berated two women for speaking Spanish in a grocery store.
