This article by Russell D. Moore dates back to September 20, but I'm just now getting around to posting it here. Dr. Moore talks about John Edwards' "love child" with his ex-mistress and fatherhood. Just a snippet here:

And that’s where it matters to us. Because no matter how many jokes are made about the “Brek Girl candidate,” we’re all vulnerable here.
We know from the Bible that a child learns who he or she is in relation to his or her father. That’s why persons in the scriptural story are known as “Joshua son of Nun” or “John son of Zebedee.”
