    Abp. Gomez Retreats Caves to iconoclasts LOS ANGELES ( - A California prelate is giving in to violent protesters who are demanding that statues of St. Junípero Serra be removed from public areas. In an open letter published just before the July 1 commemoration of the "Apostle of California," Abp. José Gomez of Los Angeles revealed his plan to protect Serra's statues from desecration by race-baiting iconoclasts. 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. "Unfortunately, we will probably have to relocate some statues to our...

    [Catholic Caucus] Pope Blasts Devout Shepherds Says offering sacraments is 'adolescent' Pope Francis is calling priests "adolescents" for offering the sacraments during pandemic-related lockdown. The pontiff commented from Sala Clementia of the Apostolic Palace on Saturday while addressing health care personnel from Italy's Lombardy region, hit particularly hard by the Wuhan virus.  Speaking of clerics trying to administer the sacraments during lockdown measures, Francis said, "This priestly creativity has scored some 'adolescent' expressions against the [lockdown] measures of authorities who have an obligation to safeguard people's health." He added that the majority of priests, however, have been "obedient and creative ......

    Solemnity of the Nativity of Saint John the Baptist Luke 1:57-66, 80 Friends, today we celebrate the Solemnity of the Nativity of Saint John the Baptist. From time immemorial, God has sent messengers, prophets, and spokespersons. Think of that whole line of prophets and the patriarchs of Israel. John the Baptist sums up all of these figures. In the Gospel of John, the Baptist identifies himself as "the voice of one crying out in the desert, ‘Make straight the way of the Lord.’" The point John makes is that Jesus is not just one more biblical figure. He’s something altogether...

    The Incredible Shrinking Bishop Barron I have never been more than an occasional viewer of Fr. Robert Barron’s Word on Fire chats. His recent televised interview with EWTN’s Catherine Szeltner put paid to whatever interest I had. Newly elevated to an auxiliary bishop in the sprawling L.A. diocese, now-Bp. Barron was in Baltimore for his initial appearance among the USCCB. Ms. Szeltner was on hand to ask how Catholics should respond to the slaughter in Paris. “How should they react?” she wondered, as if Catholics were dependent on guidance in their attitude toward carnage.This was hardly a spontaneous interview. Chairs...

    A Manhattan NYPD lieutenant sent an email to his fellow officers apologizing for kneeling alongside George Floyd protesters late last month — telling them that “the cop in me wants to kick my own ass.” In a June 3 email obtained by The Post Thursday, Lt. Robert Cattani of the Midtown South Precinct said he regrets his “horrible decision to give into a crowd of protesters’ demands” and kneel at Foley Square in Lower Manhattan, with several other cops. “The conditions prior to the decision to take a knee were very difficult as we were put center stage with the...

    Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, told Fox News' Chris Wallace Wednesday in an exclusive interview that he "had to follow my conscience" in deciding to vote to convict President Trump on abuse of power, a decision that's likely to ignite serious blowback from Trump and others in the Republican Party. "I believe that the act he took, an effort to corrupt an election is as destructive an attack on the oath of office and our Constitution as I can imagine," Romney said. "It is a high crime and misdemeanor within the meaning of the Constitution, and that is not a decision...

Vindman and his family around the clock to make sure there aren’t any imminent threats, officials said.

    Democrats are in a panic as the secret identity of their fabled whistleblower has been revealed and it shows they are not unbiased. The identity of the whistleblower has been referred to as an “open secret” in Washington, D.C., but now that name could be known to everyone, Real Clear Investigations reported. But the name of a government official fitting that description — Eric Ciaramella — has been raised privately in impeachment depositions, according to officials with direct knowledge of the proceedings, as well as in at least one open hearing held by a House committee not involved in the...

    I am a recovering American. This is a major admission on my part. Since moving to Canada in 2017, I’ve kept this part of my identity hidden from everyone except my closest friends. It’s a fairly easy sleight-of-hand. I’ve lived in various parts of the United States so I’m not easily pegged by any regionally-identifiable accent. The rest was simply a matter of a few linguistic somersaults: saying washroom instead of restroom; parkade, not parking lot; chatting at dinner parties about stratas rather than condo boards; and casually ordering deli meats by the gram (thanks to the conversion app on...

Scot Peterson, 56, was arrested Tuesday and charged with seven counts of neglect of a child, three counts of culpable negligence, and one count of perjury, according to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.

    “Fox News balances a mix of bigotry, racism, and outright lies,” Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) declared Tuesday in her explanation of why she turned down an invitation to one of the network’s town hall events. In a series of tweets, Sen. Harris attacked Fox News, accusing the network of promoting the “life and death consequences” of racism and conspiracy theorists. […] Democrats who participate in the Fox News town hall will be allowing the hateful network to cash in on their popularity, (Sen.) Warren says: “I won’t ask millions of Democratic primary voters to tune into an outlet that profits...

    HARRISBURG, PA—Pennsylvania's favorite pro-abortion legislator, Brian Sims, wanted to show he was tough. While most guys would join a local MMA club or luchador circuit, Sims isn't most guys. He had a much better idea. Sims wandered into a local Catholic church and challenged a group of singing nuns to a fistfight over the issue of abortion. "Hey nuns, come on down here and fight me if you want to show abortion is bad!" he called out, adding several slurs and expletives to his courageous speech. "Yeah, that's what I thought! Chicken, eh? Probably hateful Chick-fil-A chicken too, and not...

    The outcry surrounding Pennsylvania State Representative Brian Sims’ haranguing of anti-abortion protesters outside a Planned Parenthood clinic continues as thousands call for him to resign and a “Pro-Life Rally Against Bullying” event is organized in response. Sims was heavily condemned over two videos he posted on social media showing him confronting protesters outside a Center City Planned Parenthood facility in Philadelphia which critics said amounted to harassment and intimidation. In one video, he approaches a woman and three teenage girls and offers to donate $100 to Planned Parenthood if any of his online viewers could identify them, a practice known...

    John Kerry on his message to Trump: 'Resign' By Owen Daugherty - 01/22/19 12:18 PM EST Former Secretary of State John Kerry had a simple message for President Trump on Tuesday, saying he should “resign.” Kerry was speaking on a discussion panel at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, when he was asked what his message to Trump would be, according to CNBC. Kerry was at first hesitant to answer the question, saying Trump "doesn't take any of this seriously.” “He doesn’t have an ability to have that kind of conversation,” Kerry said after debating whether to answer or...

    Flanked by members of a local African-American faith community, a defiant Scott Israel defended himself against allegations of incompetence on Friday and made clear he would fight his suspension on any front necessary — whether before the Florida Senate or in state or federal court. Israel, 62, a two-term Democratic sheriff of Broward County, was suspended by Gov. Ron DeSantis three days after the new Republican governor was sworn into office. DeSantis cited a list of failures enumerated by a state panel that investigated BSO’s response to the Feb. 14, 2018, shootings at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland.
