    Despite what was a much delayed but important avalanche of headlines about the group’s anti-Semitism, the 2019 Women’s March took place Saturday and it still received nearly 15 times the broadcast network newscast coverage of the 47th annual March for Life that was held Friday.  Between Wednesday morning and Saturday evening, the Women’s March fetched 14 minutes and 26 seconds of coverage on the ABC, CBS, and NBC morning and evening newscasts. This stood in stark contrast to just 58 seconds for the March for Life. The Women’s March still went on despite their controversies with some satellite marches divorcing...

    BANGKOK (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - The demolition of about 100 homes near Ho Chi Minh City, including one owned by the Catholic Church, has pitted the church against authorities in the latest such dispute over land in the Communist Party-ruled country. Residents in Tan Binh district received no warning of the demolitions earlier this month and were given little compensation, according to local media reports. Land conflicts have risen in Vietnam since the ruling Communist Party launched its economic reforms, or doi moi, in the late 1980s, which resulted in more farming land being taken over to build highways and...

    Yale University announced through an email that students can now register to identify their gender as “non-binary,” as a result of policy changes for the school regarding transgender individuals on campus, according to the Yale Daily News. The new policy is in response to a petition, launched in November, from Yale’s LGBT community to President Peter Salovey. The petition called on the university to offer more rights for transgender students at Yale. The petition came in the wake of the Department of Health and Human Services' plans to change the rules of Title IX to refer to gender as an...

    In Wunderlich v. Germany, (ECHR, Jan. 10, 2019), the European Court of Human Rights in a Chamber Judgment upheld Germany's three-week removal of four children from their parents' home after the parents insisted on home schooling them and refused to send them to state schools. The court held that there was no violation of Art. 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights (Right to Respect for Private and Family Life). the Court said in part: The Court finds that the enforcement of compulsory school attendance, to prevent social isolation of the applicants’ children and ensure their integration into society,...

    A Catholic archdiocese outside Cincinnati is investigating the actions of some of its high school students during the Indigenous Peoples March in Washington Friday. Some students wearing Make America Great Again hats and clothing surrounded and taunted a Native American troupe as it performed the "American Indian Movement" song about strength and courage. It's not clear which of those young people surrounding the Native Americans are students of Covington Catholic High School in Covington, Kentucky. But the Diocese of Covington criticized any students who participated in the action, which broke out as a group from the school was in Washington...

    ROME, January 17, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – Vatican sources told Reuters that the disgraced former cardinal Theodore McCarrick is almost certain to be laicized following widely published allegations against him last summer that include the sexual abuse of a minor and adult seminarians. The 88-year-old McCarrick, who now resides in a Carmelite monastery in Kansas, has responded to only one of the allegations, claiming he has "absolutely no recollection" of allegations that he sexually abused a 16-year-old boy more than 50 years ago. In 2018, Pope Francis ordered a "thorough study" of Vatican documents about allegations against McCarrick. In addition, the...

    WASHINGTON, D.C. - In the thick of the clergy sex abuse crisis, thousands of American Catholics descended on the nation’s capitol in protest of abortion where Archbishop Joseph Naumann reminded them that the abuse of minors is antithetical to the Church’s pro-life witness. “For all Catholics, the last several months have been profoundly difficult,” he said. “We have been devastated by the scandal of sexual misconduct by clergy and of past instances of the failure of bishops to respond with compassion to victims of abuse and to protect adequately the members of their flock.” “The abuse of children or minors...

    Former White House political strategist Karl Rove warned Senate Republicans in a meeting this week not to become overly reliant on their conservative base as they head into what could be a tough 2020 presidential election. Rove, who served as former President George W. Bush’s top political strategist, was brought in by Senate GOP leaders to speak to the 22 Republican incumbents up for reelection at an all-day planning session Thursday hosted at Nationals Park in southeast Washington, D.C. GOP lawmakers are getting nervous about next year’s election as polls show President Trump’s approval rating dropping during the 28-day government...

    Keep Hope Alive! Back when The Wall Stree Journal's James Taranto wrote the paper's 'Best of the Web' column, one of his rubrics was 'Diagram this Sentence,' in which readers were challenged to deconstruct a long and confusing line from a [usually] liberal author. On Saturday's AM Joy, MSNBC legal analyst Maya Wiley offered a prime example of the genre. Responding to the refutation by the Mueller team of Buzzfeed's report that President Trump had ordered Michael Cohen to lie about Russia collusion, Wiley said: "In this case, it doesn't mean, what we are hearing in this, does not mean...

    Do Democrats have a #MeToo problem?  Or more to the point, a pervert problem? Yet another prominent Democratic Party donor got arrested for sex with a 16-year-old.  Oregon Public Broadcasting reports: A prominent Democratic Party donor and gay rights activist has been charged with sex crimes involving a child younger than 16. Real estate developer Terry Bean pleaded not guilty to two counts of sodomy and one count of sexual abuse Thursday in Lane County court.  Prosecutors say the charges stem from an incident in September 2013.  A grand jury voted to indict Bean earlier this month, but the indictment was secret until his arraignment. His arrest...

    Presidential candidate U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard on Thursday responded to criticism about her past work advocating against gay rights by apologizing in a video. The nearly four-minute-long clip, which was shot in her Washington, D.C., backyard, shows Gabbard standing in the snow saying that her views have changed significantly since she made statements that were hurtful to LGBTQ people. The Democratic congresswoman has apologized for such statements before. But she has come under renewed criticism since she announced during a CNN interview last week that she would run for president.

    In many ways, Max is a typical 14-year-old. He eschews soft music in favour of rock and heavy metal, likes to wear hoodies, giggles when he’s nervous and has a flair for drawing animals. He can be opinionated and sarcastic one moment, shy and withdrawn the next. His insecurities, however, run deeper than run-of-the-mill teenaged angst. “I have a male brain that doesn’t match up with the body I’m in,” says the Grade 9, Surrey, B.C., student, who was the female gender at birth. “It’s like being trapped in a cage.” Max is now at the centre of a complicated...

    The internet was buzzing earlier this week as the first trailer for "Spider-Man: Far From Home" was released by Marvel, featuring Spidey and film star Jake Gyllenhaal as Mysterio.

The 22-year-old actor hails from Evanston, Illinois and is an actor, singer and comedian. This marks one of the first times a trans actor has been featured in the Marvel Cinematic...
