EU top official says Polish ruling is a threat to the bloc

  EU top official says Polish ruling is a threat to the bloc BRUSSELS (AP) — The European Union's top official locked horns Tuesday with Poland's prime minister, arguing that a recent ruling from the country's constitutional court challenging the supremacy of EU laws is a threat to the bloc's foundations and won't be left unanswered. Addressing EU lawmakers in Strasbourg, European Commission president Ursula von der Leyen said she is deeply concerned by the ruling, which she said is “a direct challenge to the unity of the European legal order" and undermines the protection of judicial independence. © Provided by Associated Press Poland's Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki sits Tuesday, Oct.

How a Corny Joke Became the Preferred Way to Challenge Christian Anti-Vaxxers

  How a Corny Joke Became the Preferred Way to Challenge Christian Anti-Vaxxers Does one of the most commonly told modern Christian stories really address the issue the pro-vaccine camp thinks it does? Who is the story for? And could it really convince anyone of anything?First, to understand why the parable of the drowning man pervades Christian discourse, you have to understand the theological meaning behind it. I first heard it some 20 years ago in South Alabama from a Catholic priest who almost certainly pulled it from the internet. He played it for laughs, but some preachers have used it as a genuinely meaningful, if lighthearted, fable to illustrate a sermon.

The 2021 European Film Awards will be held in Berlin on Dec. 11.

  Inside Dems' quest to bring more professional diversity to the federal bench As part of the historically quick work to put his judicial nominees on the bench, President Joe Biden is on a mission to pick judges whose professional backgrounds break the mold of the ex-prosecutor and corporate law veterans who currently dominate the federal judiciary. © Kevin Lamarque/Pool/AFP/Getty Images Ketanji Brown Jackson, nominated to be a US Circuit Judge for the District of Columbia Circuit, testifies before a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on pending judicial nominations on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC, on April 28, 2021.
