    The New York Times endorsed not one, but two candidates for the Democratic presidential nomination on Sunday. The paper’s editorial board gave their blessings to progressive candidate Elizabeth Warren and centrist Amy Klobuchar in a surprise endorsement that split from tradition. The editorial board announced their endorsements toward the end of an episode of “The Weekly,” the Times’ television show that airs on Hulu. In an article posted to the Times’ website soon after the episode aired, the board noted their two endorsements were a “break with convention.” In endorsing Warren, the board wrote her campaign writes seriously about policy,...
  • Repeat syphilis episodes in MSM [men who have sex with men] highlight need for increased awareness, novel strategies

    Healio ^ | January 18, 2020 | Roth JA, et al.
    Sexual risk behaviors appear to be a large driver of novel syphilis infections among men who have sex with men, or MSM, who are HIV-positive and have had prior episodes of syphilis infection. Experts say that access to sexual encounters and increased testing – and, therefore, greater awareness of those who are infected – may also be contributing to increases in repeat episodes. “Syphilis is re-emerging globally in general and HIV-infected populations and repeated syphilis episodes may play a central role in syphilis transmission among core groups,” Manuel Battegay, MD, professor in the Division of Infectious Diseases and Hospital Epidemiology...

    44 profs at Catholic university demand school apologize for screening pro-life film Unplanned The school's principal responded by saying the college 'does not have an official position on abortion.' LONDON, Ontario, January 17, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – Forty-four faculty members from a Catholic university in Canada have demanded the school apologize for allowing campus ministry to show the wildly successful pro-life film “Unplanned.” “Unplanned” is a movie about the life of former Texas Planned Parenthood center manager Abby Johnson and recounts how she quit her job in 2009 after having a conversion and renouncing abortion. Its debut across Canada, as...

Lord, have mercy.” With these words, the Dutch bishop Robert Mutsaerts voiced his concern over the Amazon Synod. Its final document () is steeped with cultural relativism, calls for revolutionizing priesthood and suggestions to introduce “Amazonian” elements into the Catholic liturgy....

He was struck by how openly and boldly the Gospel was proclaimed here in the States, from massive billboards on the roadside to Christian radio and TV.A few days later, I met with a young man from the Faroe Islands, now studying in Denmark, and wanting to do pro-life work in his home country and beyond. He flew to America to meet with pro-life leaders for input and example, since there was virtually no such...

    ANKENY, Iowa (AP) — Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg said Saturday the Oval Office requires a wartime veteran, a niche he occupies exclusively among top-tier candidates in his party’s race for the 2020 nomination. During an interview on Iowa PBS in suburban Des Moines, Buttigieg was asked if there’s value in a president who had faced hostile fire. Buttigieg, a Naval intelligence officer in Afghanistan in 2014, noted he had been present for rocket attacks while stationed at Bagram Airfield, and later faced potential danger as an armed driver in Kabul. Another presidential candidate, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii, served...

    A year and a half into Donald Trump’s presidency, Henry Kissinger set out a theory. “I think Trump may be one of those figures in history who appears from time to time to mark the end of an era and to force it to give up its old pretences,” he told the Financial Times. “It doesn’t necessarily mean that he knows this, or that he is considering any great alternative. It could just be an accident.” A term has been coined to describe this notion: Ryan Evans of War on the Rocks calls them “Trumportunities.” It is the idea that,...

    Way back in 2015, when the rumors began to circulate about Donald Trump running for president, rumors we had heard for decades, I was shocked at how many “smart people” — those snobs I enjoy heckling as “#GOPSmartSet” — underestimated The Donald. Shrugging off the idea Trump would actually run was fair enough. Like I said, he’d been flirting with the idea for decades. Even I would have bet it was a publicity stunt. No, what surprised me was how #GOPSmartSet and the elite media laughed off Trump as a clown, a huckster, a carnival barker, and bankrupt loser. That,...

    Pete Buttigieg does not want pro-life Christians to “impose” their religious beliefs on others when it comes to protecting the unborn, but he would push his own pro-abortion beliefs on Americans if elected president. The pro-abortion Democrat and South Bend, Indiana mayor recently spoke to an Orange City, Iowa crowd about why he, a self-described Christian, supports abortion on demand, according to the Washington Examiner. Buttigieg reportedly touted his faith while talking about welcoming immigrants and refugees, expanding food stamps, and helping the poor, referring to various scripture references to support his position. When asked about abortion, however, he defended...

    I have a proudly progressive male friend who married a feminist some years ago who asked him to take her name. They didn’t end up going that route, but my friend seriously considered it. I thought of him when I read this recent article headlined, “He said ‘yes’! Why aren’t more women proposing to their boyfriends?” and when I came across this new Booking.com commercial that shows a woman proposing to a man. Both are examples of rejecting tradition in the name of sexual equality. When it comes to love and marriage, couples typically fall into one of two groups:...

    Associated Press ^ | January 18, 2020 | Lindsay Whitehurst and David Crary
    At the urging of conservative advocacy groups, Republican legislators in more than a dozen states are promoting bills that focus on transgender young people. One batch of bills would bar doctors from providing them certain gender-related medical treatment; another batch would bar trans students from participating on school sports teams of the gender they identify with. The proposed laws, if enacted, “would bring devastating harms to the transgender community,” said Chase Strangio, a transgender-rights lawyer with the American Civil Liberties Union. He warned that the medical bans — now pending in Colorado, Florida, Missouri, Oklahoma, South Carolina and South Dakota...

    A "feared" evangelical pastor who used his trusted position to abuse children and adults over 20 years has been convicted of multiple rapes of members of his congregation. Self-styled prophet Michael Oluronbi, originally from Nigeria, was found guilty of the offences against six women and a man - five of whom attended his church. Some of his offences were carried out after he convinced victims to take part in "spiritual bathing", which he claimed would "cleanse" them of evil spirits. Oluronbi was convicted on Friday after a trial at Birmingham Crown Court, and his offending can now be reported after...

    It’s San Francisco. Rightly, when it comes to love, anything goes. But one wedding this month garnered attention for breaking one of the last barriers in this country’s long fight for marriage equality. Rick Welts, president of the Golden State Warriors, married Todd Gage, a Southwest flight attendant, in Room 200. It is believed to be the first time an executive for a professional men’s sports team married his same-sex partner. According to the Advocate, there are no out players in professional male sports and just a smattering of out executives and coaches. Same-sex weddings in the macho world of...

    The Senate overwhelmingly passed President Trump's proposed replacement for the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) on Thursday, sending the deal to the president’s desk for his approval. Passage of the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) represents a rare moment of bipartisanship in a bitterly divided Congress. The deal cleared the Senate by a vote of 89 to 10 on Thursday, close to a month after passing the House by a vote of 385-41. Republicans were eager to help Trump accomplish a major pillar of his economic agenda despite their preferences for a deal with looser restrictions. Democrats, who broadly shared Trump’s...

    An angry and emotional Mayor Lori Lightfoot admonished a handful of African American aldermen Wednesday for “demonizing” the gay community and said the “pie is big enough to slice it in lots of other ways.” The mayor’s impassioned plea was followed by a standing ovation and a 47-1 vote to launch a study that could lay the groundwork for creating contract set-asides for gay- and transgender-owned businesses in Chicago. African American aldermen led by Black Caucus Chairman Jason Ervin (28th) and Ald. Walter Burnett (27th) voiced concern earmarking contracts for gay business owners could pave the way for “privileged white...

"Like many before, I respectfully kneeled during Nat’l Anthem because, 'No one is free until we are all free,'" she wrote, referencing former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and citing a quote from Dr. Martin Luther King,...
