    HOUSTON – Former Houston police officers Gerald Goines, 55, and Steven Bryant, 46, were both arrested on federal charges Wednesday morning in connection with the botched January Harding Street raid that left two people dead, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The woman who called 911, Patricia Garcia, 53, has also been charged. On Jan. 28, Rhogena Nicholas and Dennis Tuttle were killed when several police officers burst into their home at 7851 Harding Street. After officers shot the couple’s dog, Tuttle began firing at officers and they returned fire, killing both Nicholas and Tuttle, officials say. Five HPD...

    President Vladimir Putin has promised government backing for Islamic religious education in Russia, in a bid to stave extremism and cater to Russia’s large Muslim community. Up to 20 million Muslims make up Russia’s second-largest religious minority. Thousands of young radicalized Russians have travelled to Iraq and Syria to join jihadist fighters in recent years, making the country the largest source of foreign fighters in the war-torn region. At a meeting with Islamic religious figures on Wednesday, Russia’s president pledged “undoubted support” for a "revival of Islamic education in Russia," the state-run TASS news agency reported. “Traditional Islam is an...

    An Italian noblewoman gives a fragment of Our Lady’s robe, and relics of six other saints, to the Russian Orthodox Church in Kazan, Tartarstan, in the heart of Russia - by Dr. Robert Moynihan KAZAN, Russia, May 13 - Are relations warming between the Roman Catholic and Russian Orthodox Churches after years of grave tensions? Possibly, if the simple but extraordinary events which took place today in this city on the Volga River in the heart of Russia are any indication. An aging Italian Roman Catholic noblewoman, her grey hair covered with a white veil, in a church packed with...

    Still On the Waterfront: Long plagued by Johnny Friendlys, dockworkers fight to take back a mob-infested union by Tom Robbins June 27th, 2006 12:21 PM Just south of the Statue of Liberty, the huge white shipping cranes of New Jersey's container terminals arch into the sky. Even in the summer haze, the cranes still dominate the horizon. Their 200-foot-tall white hoists slant up and east, offering a kind of silent salute to the torch clenched in the statue's upraised arm. Most of New York's shipping is conducted on the Jersey side of the harbor now. More than $130 billion in...

  • Pope Returns Icon — to No Effect

    Fatima Perspective ^ | Christopher Ferrara
    So, the Icon of Kazan — or one of many copies of it — has been returned to Moscow as an "ecumenical" gesture, and the results for Christian unity, quite predictably, are these: nothing and none. As CWNews reported on August 30, 2004: "As a Vatican delegation restored a precious icon to the Russian Orthodox Church, in a heavily anticipated August 28 ceremony, the Holy See emphasized the importance of the gesture, while the Russian Patriarchate downplayed it." Did this surprise anyone? In his message accompanying the Icon, the Pope insisted that "this sacred icon appears as a symbol of...

    Vatican makes gesture to Russia AP Vatican City: Pope John Paul II presided at a special prayer service yesterday for an icon he is returning to Russia, expressing his hopes that the gesture will improve relations between Roman Catholics and Russian Orthodox Christians. John Paul had been hoping to return the Mother of God of Kazan icon himself and become the first pope to visit Russia, but tensions between the churches have prevented such a trip. The 32-by-26-centimetre icon, which has hung in the pope's private chapel since 1993, was carried into a Vatican auditorium in a procession and kissed...

The unconditional decision of the Pope was announced June 10 and will become a reality on August 28. Navarro-Valls, spokesman for the Pope, said JPII hopes that this gift will improve the dialogue. A commission is being appointed to deliver the icon to Alexis...

    Oscar Honors a Nazi March 1, 2004 Hitler’s favorite propagandist has finally been rehabilitated. At Sunday’s Academy Awards ceremony, Hollywood gave Leni Riefenstahl its kosher seal of approval. As it does every year, the Oscars ceremony paid homage and tribute to all of the great actors, directors, composers, and other showbiz types who passed on in the previous year. But along with recently deceased legends like Bob Hope, Gregory Peck, Donald O’Connor, Robert Stack, Buddy Hackett -- and even John Ritter, Ms. Riefenstahl was so honored. Incredibly, the Hollywood audience in attendance gave loud applause in response to the televised...
  • Elia Kazan is dead but his leftwing critics won't let go

    Elia Kazan is dead. The brilliant director and story teller who incurred the hatred of the Hollywood left has passed on to what I hope is a far better place. But for many of us he will not only be remembered for his art but also as a courageous man who fearlessly stood his ground against La-La Land's undercurrent of Stalinism and its mindless support of anti-American causes. Even in death his critics cannot leave well alone. Writing in Murdoch's Australian Rosalie Higson accused him of "extreme measures to avoid being black-listed in the '50s" (Master of the Method 30/9)....

    When Elia Kazan was presented a lifetime achievement Oscar in 1999, he closed his speech - and the door to his confounding life - with the words "I think I can just slip away." And now he has. Kazan died Sunday in his Manhattan home at the age of 94. Besides his indelible work as a theater director, Kazan leaves behind conflicting legacies as one of postwar Hollywood's most important filmmakers and one of its biggest finks. A former member of the Communist Party USA, Kazan wilted before the House Un-American Activities Committee in 1952 and named names. Afterward, he...
  • A conflict of loyalties

    A Conflict of Loyalties David C. Stolinsky, M.D. Tuesday, June 10, 2003 What do Linda Tripp, Elia Kazan and G. Gordon Liddy have in common? At first glance, one would say “nothing.” Tripp “betrayed” her friend Monica Lewinsky by taping their phone conversations. Kazan “named names” to a congressional committee investigating Communists in Hollywood. Liddy “hung tough” and refused to talk about his associates in the Watergate burglary and, as a result, served five years in federal prison. The tape-recording friend, the anti-Communist film director and the conservative talk show host seem an unlikely trio. But they have something important...
