Pope Francis on Dog Heaven: All God's Creatures Ascend in Afterlife

newrepublic.com — Pope Francis is cheating. In previous attempts to restore honor to Catholicism (if such honor ever existed) and to bring the Church into the 21st century (or into the 20th, at least), Francis has said that gays "have gifts and qualities to offer the Christian community" and declared that evolution and the Big Bang are not at odds with faith.

Zombies vs. Clowns: Which Is Scarier? A Debate.

newrepublic.com — Ryan Kearney: Earlier this month, I came across a Gawker post titled, " Is This the Scariest American Horror Story Scene Ever?"

Overanalyzing a Nationals pitcher's contract in 'How Do You Know'

tbd.com — Owen Wilson plays the most overpaid pitcher of all time. How Do You Know is, by most accounts, a film you shouldn't watch even if you've just spent five years in a Mongolian village, without electricity or sex.

Anthony Bourdain Profile: Parts Unknown Host Is the Celebrity He Hated

newrepublic.com — "Things are different now," Anthony Bourdain wrote in the preface to the paperback edition of his debut memoir, 2000's Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly , which became a hit largely thanks to its frank, populist advice to diners: Don't order fish on Mondays, don't order mussels ever, don't order meat well done, and avoid brunch altogether (especially Hollandaise, "a veritable petri dish of biohazards").

Wall Street Journal's Sochi Coverage Is Overwhelmingly Condescending

newrepublic.com — Last week, a day before the Winter Olympics began, The New Republic's Julia Ioffe took Western journalists to task for gleefully tweeting about the state of Sochi's hotel-the broken elevators, the urine-colored tap water, the knob-less doors-writing that "a lot of this complaining does smack of some pretty fantastic schadenfreude."
