Jaime Lara kept his scandalous past hidden for 25 years. During that time, he became a renowned medievalist specializing in the intersection of the arts and religion. He published numerous books and won numerous awards. He taught at Yale Divinity School for years and, more recently, at Arizona State University in Tempe.

But last week, he abruptly resigned at the university’s request. His past life and the secret he had kept about it for all of those years suddenly caught up with him.

There Are More Black Catholics in the U.S. Than Members of the A.M.E. Church

  There Are More Black Catholics in the U.S. Than Members of the A.M.E. Church In the wake of this summer’s white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops decided to create a new, ad hoc committee against racism. This is an appropriate moment for the Church to confront this issue. In August, The Washington Post reported that an Arlington, Virginia, priest named William Aitcheson had been arrested in the ’70s for burning crosses and threatening African American and Jewish families as a member of the Ku Klux Klan—and he never paid restitution or apologized to the victims.

What happened was this: The Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn, under pressure from victims, posted on its website the names of eight priests who had been laicized — “dispensed from the clerical state” by the Vatican — for sexually abusing children. Among the names on the list was the Rev. James Lara, also known as Jaime Lara, who served in active ministry for 19 years, from 1973 to 1992.

Lara was able to keep his past hidden for so long because the diocese refused to tell the public which priests were removed from ministry because of “credible” allegations of molesting children.

“There is no excuse for a supposedly moral institution to wait 25 years to release a pedophile priest’s name,” Michael Garabedian, an attorney for three of the people who say they were victims of Lara during his years as a priest, told the New York Times. At least five people who reported abuse by the priest have asked for compensation, the Times reported.

Kentucky House speaker resigns post after texts with staffer

  Kentucky House speaker resigns post after texts with staffer Kentucky's Republican House speaker resigned his leadership position Sunday after acknowledging he settled sexual harassment claims from one of his staffers last month. Jeff Hoover denied sexually harassing the staff member, but said he sent inappropriate text messages that were consensual. Hoover's wife and two of his three daughters were in the room as he spoke.

After being quietly removed from the priesthood for abusing children, Jaime Lara made a name for himself as a scholar. He taught at Yale Divinity and Arizona State as a renowned medievalist -- until the Catholic diocese of Brooklyn was forced to reveal a secret .

Ricardo Gonzalez said the priest began sexually abusing him when he was about 11 years old. “He wanted me to kiss him, he would get on top of me, he would say you can do better than that,” Gonzelez, 48, told the Times. “He would make me touch him in his private parts.”

To date, the Diocese of Brooklyn, like many across the country, has not given a full public accounting of its predatory clergy. Instead, the names trickle out, often as a condition of legal settlements with victims.

Soon after the diocese posted its list, ASU officials asked for and received Lara’s resignation. “Jaime Lara is no longer affiliated with Arizona State University, effective Thursday,” the university said in a statement, according to the State Press, a student-run news outlet.

Lara could not be reached for comment. He came to ASU in 2013 and had been serving as a research professor with the Arizona Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies, which, as of early Monday, still listed his biography on its website.

Man arrested near White House after alleged threat against 'all white police'

  Man arrested near White House after alleged threat against 'all white police' The Secret Service arrested a man near the White House on Monday, after they had been told to be on the lookout for a man who allegedly threatened to kill "all white police" there.Monday afternoon, police in Montgomery County, Maryland, alerted the US Secret Service that the man planned to go to Washington with the purpose of killing officers at the White House, according to a USSS statement.

Detroit's ceremony was the third time a beatification has occurred in the United States and the first for an American-born man. On the platform with the Catholic clergy was Paula Medina Zarate, a retired schoolteacher from Panamá whose skin disease was healed after she prayed at Casey’s tomb.

“Trained as a medievalist, Prof. Lara examines hybrid artifacts and artistic creations at moments of culture contact, principally the contact that Aztecs and Incas had with a European Christian worldview,” the website said. “He is especially interested in how symbols and metaphors, both verbal and visual, mediated understanding or misunderstanding and how rituals, liturgy and theater acted as cultural bridges.”

Lara taught four courses up until the spring semester of 2016, the State Press reported. The Arizona Republic said he taught multiple upper-division art and history classes, including a new course he created titled, “Afterlife of the Apocalypse in Art, Architecture and Western Culture.”

New Theory Questions Existence Of Dark Matter, Dark Energy .
These two mysterious entities are together thought to account for over 95 percent of all energy in the observable universe, and are largely accepted as real in the astronomy community.A new theory by an astronomer from the University of Geneva, Switzerland, claims the cosmic phenomena that led to the need of hypothesizing dark matter and dark energy can be explained without using those concepts, thereby removing any need for the concepts to exist. In other words, according to André Maeder, honorary professor in the Department of Astronomy at the university’s Faculty of Science, dark matter and dark energy may not really exist at all.
