    Pennsylvania Health Department Secretary Dr. Rachel Levine took to Pittsburgh’s KDKA NewsRadio on Thursday morning to further explain the expanded mask-wearing order she signed on Wednesday. Levine hit on a number of familiar talking points. She repeated her familiar refrain: “my mask protects you and your mask protects me.” And she said that the order, which says citizens should wear a face-covering anytime they leave their home and will be around other people unless they’re under the age of two or have a medical or work-related reason not to, is not political. Rather, it’s meant to help prevent an outburst...

    At the tail end of a City Council meeting last week, so quickly and quietly that you could have easily missed it, a left-leaning Massachusetts city expanded its notion of family to include people who are polyamorous, or maintaining consenting relationships with multiple partners.

    Abp. Gomez Retreats Caves to iconoclasts LOS ANGELES (ChurchMilitant.com) - A California prelate is giving in to violent protesters who are demanding that statues of St. Junípero Serra be removed from public areas.

St. Junípero Serra statue vandalized in Golden Gate Park "Faced with the possibility of vandalism, we are taking increased security precautions at the historic missions located in the archdiocese of Los Angeles," wrote Gomez.

    LANSING, Mich. (ChurchMilitant.com) - The diocese of Lansing is distancing itself from the organization Black Lives Matter (BLM), which has been waging public war against the diocese for three years, as well from the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD), which has generously funded left-wing groups in Lansing for at least the last decade. "The diocese cannot give its corporate endorsement to the organization Black Lives Matter," the diocese said in a June 23 e-mail in response to queries from Church Militant about the group. "As set out in its 'What We Believe' statement," the diocese continued, "many of its...

    A painting of the Last Supper featuring a black Jesus will replace a Nativity scene at St Albans Cathedral to show solidarity with Black Lives Matter. The Dean has agreed to install the 9ft piece of artwork on the altar after conceding that the church is in a weak position to preach about racial justice. Titled A Last Supper, the painting reworks Da Vinci's renowned 15th century mural by casting a Jamaican-born model as Christ. The announcement came less than a week after the Archbishop of Canterbury urged the Church of England to reconsider its portrayal of Christ as white....

    The WNBA needs to force Kelly Loeffler out. Loeffler is the co-owner of the Atlanta Dream. She’s also a U.S. Senator from Georgia, appointed to her seat last December. What Loeffler has said publicly is at least as bad, if not worse, than what Donald Sterling said in a recorded conversation with his mistress — and Sterling was forced to sell the Los Angeles Clippers.

    he 2020 election will be decided in the fall by swing voters in ten or 15 states. Prior to the COVID-19 outbreak, those voters were leaning to reelect President Trump, largely on the powers of incumbency and a near-record vibrant economy. The Democratic left-wing primary agendas, from the New Green Deal to reparations, the clownish candidates of the Beto O’Rourke and Corey Booker sort, the arrogance and meltdown of Mike Bloomberg, and Joe Biden’s cognitive impairment collectively frightened voters. Meanwhile, the booming economy, record energy production, record-low minority unemployment and reckoning with China had overshadowed Trump’s cul de sac tweeting,...

    New 'inclusive' catechesis directory favors 'dialogue' to 'evangelism'VATICAN CITY (ChurchMilitant.com) - The Vatican's new Directory for Catechesis is emphasizing "ecumenism and interreligious dialogue with Judaism and Islam" as "a special area for catechesis." The updated directory, published Thursday by the Vatican, urges Catholics "to avoid superficial generalizations in order to foster dialogue with Islam." Instead of evangelizing Jews, it calls for "a dialogue that combats anti-Semitism and promotes peace and justice with Judaism." Evangelization Redefined"In our contemporary context of religious pluralism," "witnessing" through "friendly and cordial dialogue" is privileged over an explicit proclamation of the gospel.

    The Polish community in the Dutch town of Breda is in shock after Black Lives Matter activists vandalized a beloved shrine to the famous Our Lady of Częstochowa Icon, defacing the icon itself and spray painting “BLM” underneath it. Ironically, the self-styled racial justice activists targeted a beloved icon that is popularly and affectionately known as the “Black Madonna,” in a shrine erected in 1954 specifically in honor of the city’s 1944 liberation from German nazis at the hands of the Polish 1st Armored Division under General Stanisław Maczek, who was awarded honorary Dutch citizenship after the war.
