As Robert Putnam and David Campbell point out in their book-length study ‘American Grace’: “The best evidence suggests that roughly half of all married Americans today are married to someone who came originally from a different religious tradition … and a bit fewer than a third of all marriages remain mixed today” (148). While I don’t know of any statistical evidence of this kind available on Episcopal clergy, I personally know a handful of priests whose spouses/partners profess differing faith orientations.As for myself, I am more concerned that the Episcopal Church would harbor “Christians” intolerant of other faiths than I am with a priest whose husband holds a slightly different position on abstract doctrinal matters. Also, Mr. Kirk, I assume that your comment regarding the church getting “stranger and stranger” is referring to the increasing presence of women in leadership roles. I’m just taking a stab in the dark, seeing as how you singled out the Rev. Woodliff-Stanley in your bizarre diatribe. But if this is indeed the case, then shame on you.

Referee Nigel Owens takes a tumble at Soccer City

first_imgSunday Aug 22, 2010 Referee Nigel Owens takes a tumble at Soccer City Yesterdays Tri Nations clash was packed with intensity as the Springboks and All Blacks battled it out in front of 94 000 fans. No inch was given and poor old Nigel Owens found that out the hard way as he got bundled over in a nasty collision. As the second half approached, Jimmy Cowan made a dart off the back of a maul and as Bok flanker Juan Smith came across to close down the space, Owens got a shove in the back as he got in Smiths way. Unfortunately referee Owens ended up in the middle of the tackle, with Cowan and Schalk Burger landing on the Welshman in what looked like a pretty messy position. Luckily Owens was tough enough to get through it and his neck wasnt damaged, despite a short delay and needing to be attended to by a team medic. – In other news, its since been reported that Dan Carter will undergo ankle surgery and will be out for eight weeks. He has been carrying the injury throughout the tournament and has opted to have an operation now after he said it was affecting his ankle movement. – Francois Steyn looks likely to rejoin the Springbok team after he played a full eighty minutes for Racing Metro in the Top 14 last night. Steyn had been in South Africa but was supposedly injured, so went back to France.

Ukraine photo exhibit: Suffering and resistance in the Donbass

first_imgHuntington, N.Y. — “Ukraine: Behind the Red Line,” a photographic display of the war in Ukraine, documents the devastation of the lives of the people in the Donbass region as well as the organized resistance in Donbass to the junta regime in Kiev.Armed men and women who make up the people’s militias supported by the people of East Ukraine are shown standing in defense of the residents of the cities and villages under siege by the U.S.-sponsored coup regime. The images provide graphic testimony to the suffering of people of the region who are living and dying under the bombs and military attacks of the neo-Nazi Kiev government.The photos, taken by photojournalists in Russia and Ukraine, were prepared by Rossiya Segodnya, a multimedia international information agency and displayed here Aug. 22 at the Huntington Community Arts Center. The International Action Center and the United National Antiwar Coalition presented the exhibition.The exhibit was a focus of intense discussion, The Community Arts Center has a long history of showing groundbreaking films and conducting discussions of critical political and social issues. Audiences are thoughtful and serious, and often consist of support movements for social justice.One older woman stood near a photo of a mother in Donetsk saying goodbye to her daughter who was leaving for safety in Crimea. Shaking her head, the viewer says: “She looks like my daughter! She looks like me!”An elderly man whose grandparents came from Kiev said: “I thought they tossed the Nazis out 70 years ago! Why is the U.S. supporting this regime?”People walked slowly by the photographs and compared the scenes of destruction and the anguished faces to similar scenes from Gaza. Many asked questions because they thought the corporate U.S. media were hiding something: the truth.A woman from Yugoslavia said: “These NATO wars started in Yugoslavia! Look at that grandmother hiding in her cellar amidst the canned vegetables! This is criminal! So sad! The U.S. is ­responsible!”“These pictures,” said a woman from Guyana, “are beautiful and terrible. People need to see them and to understand what is happening.”The exhibit will be traveling to New York City; Albany, N.Y.; Philadelphia; Washington, D.C.; Tucson, Ariz.; and Los Angeles in the coming weeks. The New York meeting will be on Thursday, Sept. 4, at 6 p.m. at the Solidarity Center at 147 West 24th Street in Manhattan.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img

Farm Bureau Welcomes Continued Monitoring of Monarch Butterfly

The Service issued a “warranted but precluded” decision, which means the monarch will be considered a candidate species for now. The Service will continue to study the species and review its candidacy for listing on an annual basis.“America’s farmers welcome the U.S. Fish and Wildlife decision to continue monitoring the health of the monarch butterfly population,” said American Farm Bureau Federation President Zippy Duvall. “Preserving natural surroundings for America’s wildlife has long been a priority for America’s farmers and ranchers. More than 140 million privately owned farm and ranch acres are enrolled in voluntary conservation programs, providing habitats for countless animals and insects, including the monarch. Farm Bureaus across the country have been involved with state and regional planning efforts for the monarch – joining forces with the energy and utility sectors, those who manage natural areas, and our urban hubs across the country – to meet ambitious goals for the species. The warranted but precluded decision will give all stakeholders time to continue conservation and research efforts.”More than half a million acres alone are currently set aside specifically to provide habitat benefits to bees and butterflies. Farm Bureaus across the country have played an important role in education and outreach that has led to increased habitat across the monarch flyway.AFBF is also a member of “Farmers for Monarchs,” which is committed to protecting the butterfly population through voluntary efforts to restore and enhance habitats.

Senate will finally debate the LEN law on 8 April

first_img News News FranceEurope – Central Asia “We’ll hold Ilham Aliyev personally responsible if anything happens to this blogger in France” RSF says Help by sharing this information Receive email alerts News News FranceEurope – Central Asia Follow the news on France RSF_en Use the Digital Services Act to make democracy prevail over platform interests, RSF tells EU May 10, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders pressed senators to hold urgent talks with rights groups as it emerged that a late postponement of a Senate debate on the LEN law was not to allow more debating time but because of parliamentary agenda changes, mainly due to the Queen of England’s visit to France.The president of the Senate announced on the morning of 6 April that the Law on confidence in the digital economy (LEN) would now be debated on 8 April instead of 7 April as originally scheduled.The international press freedom organisation called for dialogue with organisations defending individual freedoms on Article 2 of LEN, which relates to the responsibilities of Internet Service Providers.The organisation also urged all Internet workers and Internet-users to mobilise to counter the draft law that will open the way to abusive censorship.——————————————————————–5 April 2005Bill to Promote Confidence in Digital Economy poised for final reading in SenateReporters Without Borders today reiterated its opposition to the Bill to Promote Confidence in Digital Economy (known as the LEN), which is supposed to translate a June 2000 European Union directive into French law and which will have its final reading before the senate in a public session on 7 April.The organisation urged senators to seize this last chance to amend the law so that it respects the rights of Internet users and online content editors. As it stands, the bill is a threat to free expression on the Internet as it would privatise the work of judges and force Internet hosts to act as censors, the organisation said.”If the LEN is approved, excessive Internet censorship is likely to ensue,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Italy, Spain and Belgium refused to turn hosts into Internet judges although they were implementing the same EU directive, so we call on the senators to ensure that only real judges will have the power to censor the Internet.”Reporters Without Borders already criticised the LEN at the time of its second reading before the National Assembly (see www.rsf.org/article.php3?id_article=9014). To judge by the economic affairs commission report released by Senators Pierre Hérisson and Bruno Sido, the senate may be ready to make improvements to the bill. The report opposed forcing Internet Service Providers to screen for illegal content, as required by the version approved by the National Assembly.All the same, the bill’s most problematic aspect, requiring hosts to censor online content, is unchanged. This is a danger interpretation of the EU directive. Italy and Spain opted to give a “competent body” the power to determine the legality of disputed content, while Belgium assigned this responsibility to the state prosecutor. These three countries realised the danger of privatising judicial authority over the Internet. Reporters Without Borders calls on France’s senators also to take account of this danger and to amend article 2 of the LEN so that it is left to judges to say what online content is illegal and must be suppressed.As Reporters Without Borders has explained in the past, article 2 of the LEN says hosting companies are responsible for the content of the webpages on the sites they host. Hosts would become liable under common law if they did not “act promptly” to block content “after becoming aware of their unlawful nature.”But how are service providers supposed to decide whether or not content is lawful? Only judges are qualified to do this in France. Internet users would be able to demand the immediate withdrawal of content they consider unlawful. Website hosts – who oppose the bill – would be forced to censor any content likely to be deemed unlawful for fear of being found criminally liable, with penalties of up to a year in prison and a fine of 75,000 euros for the manager of a service provider. The LEN’s advocates argue that website hosts would be protected by a clause in the bill making improper accusations of illegality punishable by a year in prison and a fine of 15,000 euros. Nonetheless, legal decisions would still have to be taken by commercial companies, read more

The disaster devastated the country, destroying the homes of more than 1.5 million Haitians who were forced to find shelter in survivor camps dotted throughout the capital, Port-au-Prince. The day after the tremor, Pierre set up a mobile Telecentre among the ruins for those who had been displaced. Equipped with a dozen Web-connected computers, it tours the capital’s six survivor camps every day. The Telecentre is an oasis for exchanging information amid a ruined infrastructure and media. It is used for exchanging information about victims of the quake, its aftermath and the distribution of humanitarian aid. It has also been a means of introducing many Haitians to new technology.

Because of the effectiveness of its educational materials, many Los Angeles County groups and organizations have adopted the program, several of whom shared their experience with forum attendees.Sergeant Mark Cripe, county-wide director of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department VIDA program (Vital Intervention and Directional Alternatives), spoke of the results he and his deputies have achieved using the Truth About Drugs curriculum with at-risk youth and youth who have turned to drugs and crime. He said he uses the Truth About Drugs program because it is â€œthe best.”Jesse Mendoza, Director of Victory Outreach Youth Activities for South Los Angeles, told attendees why he uses the Truth About Drugs in his work. He particularly values the public service announcements and feature-length documentary, The Truth About Drugs: Real People, Real Stories.Over the past 10 years, Dr. Nicholas Benson has graduated 5,000 inmates from the halfway house he runs. He learned of the Truth About Drugs program and put it to use in weekly drug education classes. Drug and alcohol problems were significant factors in what went wrong in the lives of most of his residents and the curriculum helps them examine their own circumstances and make important decisions for the future.The Church of Scientology has published a brochure, Scientology: How We Help —The Truth About Drugs, Creating a Drug-Free World, to meet requests for more information about the drug education and prevention initiative it supports.

House Releases Amicus Brief on CFPB Constitutionality Case

Consumer Protection Bureau. According to the brief, the House of Representatives believes that the case has no bearing on the constitutionality of the Bureau,  and as such, the Supreme Court should resolve this case without deciding on the constitutionality of the Bureau.In the case, Seila Law alleges that the structure of the agency grants too much power to its director. According to court papers, given the CFPB’s broad law enforcement powers, the fact that the president may only remove the director of the CFPB “for inefficiency, neglect of duty, or malfeasance in office” is unconstitutional. In May, the CFPB beat Seila Law before a panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.Following the brief, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Chairwoman of the House Committee on Financial Services Maxine Waters released statements regarding the Amicus Brief, addressing the Bureau’s constitutionality.According to Speaker Pelosi, the Bureau’s independence is “essential.”“Led by Financial Services Committee Chairwoman Maxine Waters, House Democrats will continue to be vigilant in ensuring the Administration respects the independence of the Consumer Bureau so that it can continue its mission to protect American families against reckless and predatory practices in the financial marketplace, and strengthen the economic security of all,” Speaker Pelosi stated.Chairwoman waters echoed Pelosi, defending the Bureau’s position.“I applaud Speaker Pelosi for her commitment to ensuring that the Consumer Bureau can serve as a strong independent regulator to protect hardworking American consumers,” she said.The Supreme Court will be hearing the case of Seila Law LLC V. Consumer Protection Bureau on March 3, 2020. According to American Enterprise Institute Senior Fellow Peter J. Wallison, there is more at stake than just the constitutionality of the Bureau.On Real Clear Politics, Wallison argues that this CFPB case is an example of Congress enacting “broadly  phrased laws, essentially delegating the key legislative choices to administrative agencies and violating the Framers’ constitutional plan of separation.”As Wallison says, “the president has the power through the appointment and removal of executive officials to carry out the policies he was elected to pursue.” Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Tagged with: CFPB House of Representatives Seth Welborn is a Reporter for DS News and MReport.
