(2) An Appeal to Our Fellow Catholics, by Robert P. George and George Weigel (National Review)

Mr. Trump’s record and his campaign show us no promise of greatness; they promise only the further degradation of our politics and our culture. We urge our fellow Catholics and all our fellow citizens to reject his candidacy for the Republican presidential nomination by supporting a genuinely reformist candidate.

(5) Mr. President: ISIS’ Actions in Middle East Are Genocide—Say So!

It is a poignant note that the day appointed as the deadline for declaring ISIS’ crimes against humanity to be genocide falls on March 17th. That is Saint Patrick’s Day. This English-born Christian evangelist led the effort to convert the Irish. His blessed memory is noted not least because Ireland was brought into the faith with no violence.

Failure to declare ISIS depredations genocide makes America look weak and indecisive. What can justify this unconscionable delay?

Mr. President, Mr. Secretary: You must consider your own place in history. We have only a few days to see that arc bend toward justice on those bloodstained sands, in those subjugated villages, in those fire-blackened churches.

Delay no longer: Declare ISIS’ jihadist rule to be genocide.
