    On March 18, 2018, the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, during its annual Religious Education Congress, offered the following workshop: "Teaching Mercy: Accompanying LGBT Students." The workshop focused on helping "educators discern a merciful balance between teaching doctrine and offering pastoral care as they accompany LGBT students through journeys of self-discovery and self-acceptance." The presenters were Fr. Chris Ponnet (pictured above), Arthur Fitzmaurice, and Ish Ruiz. Ponnet was ordained in 1983 and serves as "spiritual director" for the Archdiocese's Catholic Ministry with Lesbian and Gay Persons (CMLGP). Following the 2016 Congress, after a same-sex couple and their son presented the gifts to...

    Los Angeles could join New York City and other California cities in a lawsuit targeting Exxon Mobil for supposedly contributing to global warming and rising sea levels. Two Los Angeles city council members want the city to use the courts to fleece fossil-fuel producers to mitigate the effects of global warming. They are hoping to join the likes of New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, who announced earlier this month that his city will take Exxon to court.

    Under the leadership of the ultraliberal Cardinal Robert Mahoney, the Archdiocese of Los Angeles’ annual Religious Education Congress  – billed as the biggest annual gathering of Catholics in the country – gained a reputation for functioning as a platform for dissidents who seek to undermine Catholic doctrine on life and family issues.  When Mahoney left office in 2011 in disgrace following revelations of his protection of priests accused of child sex abuse, he was replaced by Archbishop José Gomez, a former Opus Dei priest perceived as a conservative. Expectations were high that Gomez’s administration would lead to a reversal of...
  • Teacher questions school board about superintendent’s big raise — and gets hauled away in cuffs

    A special meeting of the Vermilion Parish School Board got a bit heated last night and a concerned educator ended up in handcuffs. Deyshia Hargrave, an English language arts teacher at Rene Rost Middle School in Kaplan, got up to address the board during the public comments portion of the meeting to discuss teacher salaries and pay raises. Her big concern was that while teachers were asked to do more for little to no extra pay, the board was voting to increase the salary of current superintendent Jerome Puyau. However, Hargrave was ruled out of order by board president Anthony...

    Thousands of protesters are expected to gather in downtown Los Angeles Saturday for a march against President Donald Trump. But there has yet to be any kind of public demonstration against sexual harassment and sexual assault in Hollywood, several weeks into a scandal that has implicated some of L.A.’s most powerful personalities — many of whom are also among the Democratic Party’s biggest backers. The L.A. demonstrations are organized by a group called Refuse Fascism, which has defended Antifa’s use of violence, calling it self-defense against violence from the far right. And yet nothing is being done to protest on...

    CityWatch Los Angeles ^ | 14 SEPTEMBER 2017 | MARC JOFFE
    California pension worries most often focus on CalPERS and CalSTRS, the state’s two multi-employer behemoths. But the state has many other underfunded plans, and these city and county systems pose significant challenges for governments that contribute to them. The City of Los Angeles faces the largest municipal pension funding gap, measured in absolute dollar terms. According to the city’s 2016 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report, Los Angeles’ Net Pension Liability totaled $8.2 billion. Curiously, this number does not appear on the city’s government-wide balance sheet (called a Statement of Net Position). Instead, the $8.2 billion is reported as part of LA’s...

    About 70% of Los Angeles high school graduates enroll in two- or four-year colleges, but only 25% graduate within six years. ... it’s hard to assess recent district efforts that could be seen as pushing in different directions. On one hand, the district is touting higher standards: a high school graduation requirement that all students pass the courses necessary for applying to a four-year state college. On the other hand, the district requires a grade of D only in these classes and the colleges require a C or better to apply. The district also offers an array of “credit recovery”...

    More than 40 people in Los Angeles County and surrounding regions have been diagnosed with mumps, prompting public health officials Thursday to declare an outbreak and issue an alert to physicians and providers to be aware of it. In the alert, public health officials said many of the cases were initially misdiagnosed and there was a reliance of using false negative results. It’s unclear when this occurred. Health officials also did not release the conditions of those who were diagnosed. A response from Los Angeles County public health officials was not immediately forthcoming Thursday. But health officials said most of...

    The number of homeless people in Los Angeles is skyrocketing. In just one year, the figures revealed that the homeless population in the city grew 20% while the numbers for the wider Los Angeles County were even higher at 23%. As if looking at those numbers isn’t cringeworthy enough, The Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority reported Wednesday that 6,000 homeless young people were tallied across the county in January, a 61% increase over the 2016 total. Most of the young people are ages 18 to 24. All the youth shelters have waiting lists and affordable housing is tough to find,...

    HB 68 (Constitutional Carry), was killed in the House Committee on Criminal Justice in an 8-5 vote. The vote was not recorded, so we do not know who voted which way.  There are 10 Republicans, 8 Democrats, and 1 independent on the committee. That is 19 members. But only 13 members voted. Who were the absent committee members? No one who knows is willing to say. From BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - The House Committee on Criminal Justice shot down a bill Wednesday that would have eliminated the process for obtaining a concealed carry permit.

    Los Angeles rents are some of the worst in the nation, and don't even think about buying a home here. Resourceful millennials have found one solution, though: living at home with mom and dad. A new analysis of U.S. Census Bureau data for America's largest cities found that 41.5 percent of Greater Los Angeles millennials either still live at home or have moved back in. In the Inland Empire, that figure was 44.5 percent, according to the "Not-So-Empty Nests" report by apartment listing site Abodo. ... Greater L.A., including Orange County, ranked fourth for U.S. metro areas with the largest...
