Catholics For Biden Co-Chair Says Progressives Should Avoid Amy Coney Barrett’s Faith

  Catholics For Biden Co-Chair Says Progressives Should Avoid Amy Coney Barrett’s Faith Amy Coney Barrett is a conservative. She’s also a Roman Catholic. If, as expected, Senate Republicans confirm her as President Donald Trump’s nominee to fill the seat of late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, it could represent an enormous victory for conservatives. It would further solidify Republican control of the judicial branch and pose an impediment to Democratic rule, even if Democrats seize control of both the legislative and executive branches in just three weeks. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.

‘One of the Best Revivals’: Virginia Church Praises Its Superspreader Event

  ‘One of the Best Revivals’: Virginia Church Praises Its Superspreader Event A picturesque white-steeple church surrounded by lush trees in Keysville, Virginia—pop. 832—held a worship event last month that local health officials have “unequivocally” deemed a superspreader of the novel coronavirus. But don’t hold your breath for an apology. Though the gathering at Emmanuel Bible Church sickened at least 42 parishioners and church staffers, and caused a surge that forced the local school district to delay its transition to in-person instruction, it seems there are few, if any, regrets.

There were 105,090 recorded hate crimes in 2019-20, compared with 97,446 in 2018-19. While race hate crime figures increased by 6 percent since 2018-19, religious hate crime fell by 5 percent to 6,822 offenses, down from a peak of 7,203 the previous year.

It was the first recorded drop in religious hate crime since 2012-13. In July, it was reported that U.K. ministers are considering bringing in tougher sentences for those who desecrate places of worship and burial plots.

The issue was raised by Andrew Bridgen MP who wrote a letter to Home Secretary Priti Patel in which he appealed for stricter prison sentences for attacks on places of worship including churches, synagogues, mosques, mandirs, gurdwaras and temples as well as burial grounds.

He wrote: "To my mind and I am sure of all decent thinking people, acts of desecration and vandalism against religious buildings or burial plots are both equally indecent and deeply offensive and can undermine community cohesion."

Pope Francis names Washington Archbishop Wilton Gregory first African American cardinal .
Gregory is one of 13 cardinals in a new class announced Sunday. The appointment comes as he’s trying to rebuild trust in an archdiocese rocked by sexual abuse cases. The move was widely anticipated; Washington archbishops are typically elevated to cardinal after their appointments.
