    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 landmark CNN Center building in downtown Atlanta may soon have a new owner, though CNN employees will remain there for at least a few more years. AT&T, which owns CNN as a result of its 2018 acquisition of Time Warner, has either already agreed to sell or plans to sell the CNN Center, according to an internal company memo sent on Monday. WarnerMedia, the subsidiary of AT&T that operates CNN, will lease back the building from its new owners for at least five years.

    The "Never Trump" coalition of Republicans fighting to oust President Trump from the White House is making a risky play, just as the president's lackluster poll numbers are raising concerns on the right -- they're going after Republican senators too. The effort is being led by The Lincoln Project, a media-savvy outfit that spends most of its time hammering the incumbent president with scathing TV and digital ads. But along with targeting Trump, The Lincoln Project is now weighing in on the races of GOP senators facing tough reelections this year. ... The spot characterizes Daines whos facing a...

    Donald Trump may drop out of the 2020 presidential race if he believes he has no chance of winning, a Republican Party operative reportedly toldFox News. The claim comes in a report in the presidents favourite news outlet that cites a number of GOP insiders who are concerned about Mr Trumps re-election prospects amid abysmal polling numbers. Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee, currently holds an average lead of nine points over the incumbent, according to a tracker of 2020 polls byRealClearPolitics. Crucially, Mr Trump has lost support from older white voters typically a bedrock of support for the...

    SEATTLE - A second lawsuit was filed in federal court over the CHOP zone on Seattle's Capitol Hill. The class action lawsuit claims by allowing the protest zone, Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan and Governor Jay Inslee, violated the Constitutional rights of everyone who lives, works, or passes through the area. Not only does attorney Jacob Bozeman say the city allowed it, he claims they helped create it by installing barricades and bathrooms. "To abdicate the authority to an unelected, unauthorized and armed group of people to decide who can come and go, who can be searched and seized, and under...

    Earlier this week the Gateway Pundit announced a prayer rally on Saturday at the iconic St. Louis Statue on Art Hill in Forest Park. We planned the rally because there is currently a petition by local leftist and radical Umar Lee to remove this beautiful landmark in St. Louis City. There is also a movement to rename the city because St. Louis was Islamophobic. And like clockwork local Islamist Umar Lee and the left smeared TGP and Christians who planned on attending the prayer rally as white nationalists. On Friday, in the most egregious attack on this rally yet, St....

    LONDON (Reuters) - The Church of England must review statues and monuments in its places of worship to ensure that any with links to slavery are removed or are given appropriate context, its spiritual leader, Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, said on Friday. The Anglican Church, a central part of English public life and governance for centuries, is the latest institution to reflect on its role following worldwide protests inspired by the death of George Floyd in police custody in the United States. Welby, the most senior cleric in the worldwide Anglican communion, which has some 85 million followers in...

    "They were asked or told with the threat of suspension if they didn't do it to go in the park area without protective gear, especially their ballistic helmets ... which is an insane request ... considering circumstances they've been facing the last month," Kentucky FOP President Berl Perdue said. Perdue said officers had already removed several individuals with long guns from elevated positions Saturday night before the shooting in Jefferson Square. He said Louisville officers may file a grievance over the order regarding protective gear. LMPD responded, saying in part that the department decided to have officers go...

    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.

The manager told them that employees involved were let go, but the couple said they never plan to return to the store.

    Last month, Joe Biden got some practical campaign advice from a maestro: Keep speeches, interviews, and tweets short and crisp, former president Barack Obama told the presumptive Democratic nominee, according to The New York Times. With President Trump imploding daily, theres little else to add except stay cool, drink plenty of water, and avoid mistakes like saying 120 million Americans have died from COVID-19, as Biden recently did, before quickly correcting himself. **SNIP** So now its time for the Trump campaign to hit Biden with accusations of dementia. An ad run by a pro-Trump PAC raises the question: Does Joe...

Its become so exhausting that Hugos Tacos has closed down both shops to give workers a break, owners wrote in a post on Twitter. All because of a simple question: Can we ask you to put on a mask? Can we offer you a mask? said part-owner Bill Kohne, according to the Los Angeles Times. The company has been serving tacos for 15 years, owners wrote in the Twitter post. Incidents,...

    The Fulton County Registration and Elections Board approved a plan by the Atlanta Hawks to transform State Farm Arena into a massive polling station for Georgia's primary runoff election on Aug. 11 and early voting for the general election scheduled for Nov. 3. The idea was hatched during the weekend after the killing of George Floyd, when the focal point of protests in Atlanta was just outside the Hawks' home arena. Conversations among Hawks head coach Lloyd Pierce, CEO Steve Koonin and majority owner Antony Ressler quickly coalesced around the idea of turning the playing floor into a voting location.

    Yesterday, while praying for peace and unity in our city and the protection of the Saint Louis statue, Black Lives Matter protesters started to harass, berate, and assault the Catholics that were peacefully praying. We did nothing in retaliation (Thread with documentation) 1/8 We allowed them to spit on us, call us names, put their fingers in our faces, push us, and antagonize, but we did not retaliate. We continued to peacefully pray. At that moment someone in the crowd poured an unidentified liquid on the older man, pictured below protecting his head, and was then attacked by a violent...
