    The NFL will reportedly play “Lift Ev’ry Voice And Sing,” which is also known as the black national anthem, before every Week 1 NFL game in the 2020 season, according to ESPN. The decision to play the song comes following the death of Minneapolis man George Floyd, which led to nationwide protests over racial inequality and police brutality. According to the ESPN report, the song will be played before “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

    Former President Barack Obama, Taylor Swift and more are set to appear on Pride Live’s third annual Stonewall Day 2020 virtual event taking place Friday on Logo’s YouTube and Facebook pages.

Stonewall Day marks when New York City police conducted a raid on a gay bar in 1969 which led to the Stonewall riots. The riots helped launch the...

  • What If the Shroud of Turin Is Christ's Authentic Burial Cloth?

    Yesterday on "Holy Saturday," there was an extraordinary online exposition of the Shroud of Turin —purported to be the authentic burial cloth of Jesus Christ — viewed live across the globe on numerous media platforms. Catholic News Service reported earlier this week that amid the coronavirus pandemic, Archbishop Nosiglia [of Turin, Italy] had received thousands of requests to pray before the Shroud during Holy Week to ask God for “the grace to defeat evil as he did, trusting in the goodness and mercy of God.”The report concluded with the Archbishop's heart wrenching, yet hopeful statement that seeing the Shroud "will go to the...
  • Buttigieg’s “Gay Problem” With Black Voters Is Probably A Mirage

    This is one trope we’ve been hearing ever since Pete Buttigieg got into the race. Mayor Pete will have trouble gaining support with Black voters because he’s gay. (And trust me… I’ve heard this from Democrats, not just conservatives.) That topic is something of a landmine for obvious reasons, but the fact he really is doing very poorly among African-American primary voters keeps breathing life into the theory. I’ve heard two schools of thought that seek to explain the phenomenon. One holds that Black voters tend to be more religious and hold somewhat conservative views in that regard, and...
  • Is Romney Going To Vote To Remove Trump?

    Trumpers are going to read that headline and respond, “YES, AND HE ALWAYS WAS,” but I don’t think that’s true. There’s too much for him to lose and too little to gain by casting a vote to remove that’s functionally meaningless to make this an easy call for him. He has almost five full years left in the Senate and may well spend all five having to deal with an embittered Trump administration that won’t do him a single favor if he votes the wrong way here. He’ll piss off thousands upon thousands of Republican constituents back home, some of...
  • "I just can't do it": Washington Nationals pitcher Sean Doolittle declines White House invitation

    The Washington Nationals will head to the White House Monday to meet with President Trump following the team's historic World Series victory. But pitcher Sean Doolittle won't be going. "There's a lot of things, policies that I disagree with, but at the end of the day, it has more to do with the divisive rhetoric and the enabling of conspiracy theories and widening the divide in this country," Doolittle said in an interview with The Washington Post. "At the end of the day, as much as I wanted to be there with my teammates and share that experience with my...
  • Collins, Murkowski Won’t Co-Sponsor Graham’s Resolution Criticizing House’s Impeachment Process

    As of Friday afternoon, 50 of the Senate’s 53 Republicans had signed on to co-sponsor it. The three holdouts were exactly whom you’d expect: Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, and Mitt Romney. But their delay in joining the effort didn’t necessarily mean they’d ultimately refuse. Recall that the three retiring GOP members of the caucus, Lamar Alexander, Mike Enzi, and Johnny Isakson, also took longer than the rest to declare their support for the resolution. But in the end, all three did.Not Collins and Murkowski, though. They’re now on record: Count them out. Presumably the same goes for Mitt. Granted,...

    Feedback please from our fellow FReepers on our new The 9/11 Attacks: Understanding Al-Qaeda and the Domestic Fall-Out from America's Secret War piece, whose intro is below: With American military personnel now entering service who were not even alive on 9/11, this seems an appropriate time to reexamine the events of September 11, 2001 – the opaque motives for the attacks, the equally opaque motives for the counter-offensive by the United States and its allies known as the Global War on Terror, and the domestic fall-out for Americans concerned about the erosion of their civil liberties on the homefront. Before venturing further,...

    BLACK holes could be a portal to another universe and our cosmos could have been born from one, a scientist has sensationally claimed. While the accepted theory on the universe began is the big bang, there are other equally baffling theories. One such is that our universe was born from a black hole opening in another parallel universe and that each black hole in our cosmos could be a gateway to another universe. At the beginning of time, 13.8 billion years ago, there was a dense and super-hot energetic point where the laws of physics did not apply – what...

    But the Noahides are a theological phenomenon of very recent vintage. It’s a form of Zionist mission, which seeks to create a world religion whose believers adore the Jewish people and the State of Israel – without belonging to either. The believers are required to accept the supremacy of Judaism but are not accepted into the Jewish people and are even barred from upholding such commandments as Sabbath observance. Anyone who wishes to be a Noahide is called upon mainly to recognize the Jewish people and its state. ... He called on them to renounce Christianity and to burn their...

    Teen climate activist Greta Thunberg was joined by swelling and excited crowds of American teenagers at a protest outside the UN headquarters in New York on Friday, in a further blossoming of the youth environment movement given extra thrust by the Swede’s transatlantic boat crossing. Some US children said they were at their first ever climate demonstration; others said they had been passionate about the environment for a while but had been galvanized to act by Thunberg’s rising profile. On Friday afternoon, Thunberg and two young activists were spontaneously invited inside the UN for a meeting with a senior leader,...

    [snip] Joe and Mika claimed that President Trump's active tweeting in the last 24 hours can be dismissed as an attempt to distract from the letter that Robert Mueller sent to Bill Barr. But the resolute Scarboroughs would not be distracted by that. No! Mika insisted that Trump "can tweet nudes. We don’t care. We’re not looking." Mika then invited Joe to speak to his "friend," whereupon Scarborough looked directly into the camera: "Hey Donald! Donald." Joe first clarified that he could no longer be friends with someone "who wants to be an autocrat." Scarborough then proceeded to suggest that...

    MSNBC: the place for praise of Fox News? Hardly! But today's Morning Joe did offer up a surprising dose of praise for Fox News, and criticism of DNC chairman Tom Perez for nixing the notion of the network hosting a Dem presidential debate. The unexpected remarks came in reaction to yesterday's Bernie Sanders town hall on FNC, hosted by Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum. Mika Brzezinski began the parade of praise, noting that Fox is making an effort to be open to different points of view, "and I think it's great." Noting that FNC had invited a politically-diverse audience to...

    Pope Francis has said that those who constantly criticise the Catholic church are “friends of the devil”. Speaking to pilgrims from southern Italy, the pontiff said that defects of the church needed to be denounced so they could be corrected, but that those who condemned “without love” were linked to the devil. “One cannot live a whole life accusing, accusing, accusing, the church,” he said. People who did, he said, were “the friends, cousins and relatives of the devil”. His remarks come as dozens of victims of clerical sexual abuse gathered in Rome ahead of an unprecedented Vatican summit on...
