    Chief Minister Michael Gunner Northern Territory Chief Minister Michael Gunner says his wife and son had to flee their home over the weekend as anger over his vaccination rules hits fever pitch in the Top End. Demonstrators yelled out Mr Gunner’s home address and threatened to attack him at a rally held in Darwin on Saturday — after the leader introduced some of the world’s toughest mandate laws last week. Mr Gunner told Sky News Australia he was extremely worried about his wife and son’s safety. “The priority was obviously people knew where we lived, it was at a rally...

    In an opening night convention speech stunning for the depth and breadth of its horrific chutzpah and ghoulish hypocrisy, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo ignored his own criminal negligence in ushering patients infected with the Chinese Wuhan virus into New York nursing homes sentencing tens of thousands of vulnerable seniors to their deaths. It was perhaps fitting that the first night of the party of death’s national convention, a party that supports the killing of unborn life on demand up to and even after the moment of birth, featured New York’s angel of nursing home death who turned nursing homes...

    Obviously, taken as a whole, the books of the New Testament were quite popular. They were Scripture, after all!But how popular were they individually?People today have favorite books in the Bible–ones they go to all the time, and ones they only rarely look at.This is a phenomenon that affects both the books of the Old and the New Testament, and it’s possible to get a sense of how popular particular books were in particular time periods.One way of doing that–before the Bible was bound as a single volume–is by seeing how many copies there are of individual books.In Larry...

    When we think of strange verses in the New Testament, the fantastic visions of Revelation immediately leap to mind. But Revelation isn’t the only place. From weird words used by St. Paul to the trance of St. Peter, here are six of the strangest verses in the New Testament.Acts 10:11-12 – The Ecstasy of St. Peter‘And he saw the heaven opened, and a certain vessel descending, as it were a great linen sheet let down by the four corners from heaven to the earth: Wherein were all manner of fourfooted beasts, and creeping things of the earth, and fowls of...

    Remember a while back when some Florida pastor with a bad mustache and worse manners threatened and then ultimately burned a Koran? I am sure you do. It had plenty of two things, media coverage and body count. There is another story that is likely to have neither of those things, mercifully. The Bible Society in Israel sent some copies of the New Testament to members of the Israeli Knesset with a note that said "We hope the book will help you and illuminate your way.” MK Michael Ben Ari, with better facial hair than the aforementioned Florida Pastor but...

    Not what it appears to be: the Archaic Mark LONDON. A clever bit of detective work by US scholars and scientists has proven that one of the jewels of the University of Chicago’s manuscript collection is, in fact, a skilled late 19th- or early 20th-century forgery. Although speculation as to the authenticity of the Archaic Mark codex has been rife for more than 60 years, prior to this definitive research many believed it was an early record (possibly as early as the 14th century) of the Gospel of Mark and the closest of any extant manuscript to the world’s oldest...

    A common notion floating around in Pop Culture is that "modern scholarship" has somehow proven the Gospel of John is more or less unhistorical fantasy written by a pseudonymous author. Here are the facts: the tradition of the Church, supported by the unbroken line of patristic testimony, as well as internal evidence from the text itself, is that the gospel is rooted in the testimony of the Apostle John, son of Zebedee. St. Irenaeus tells us (circa 180 A.D.) that the fourth gospel was published by the Apostle John, the teacher of his own mentor Polycarp. Numerous other witnesses in...

    The relationship between the Old Covenant and New Covenant has been a hot topic for 2000 years. Not long ago, Ann Coulter caused a media row by announcing that Christians are “perfected Jews.” A few years before that, a document called Reflections on Covenant and Mission made headlines by apparently saying that Jews did not need Jesus. What do we make of it all?The Reflections document is as good a place to start as any, since so many people still think it is “what the Church teaches.” In fact, it was released without episcopal permission, had no magisterial authority and...

    CHARLESTON, W.Va — West Virginia won the National Invitation Tournament title, but its commemorative T-shirts are less than championship material. They contain a misspelling. The "West Virginia" printed on the shirts players wore after winning the NIT Thursday night is missing the last "i" in "Virginia." WVU sports information director Shelly Poe blamed the NIT for printing the shirts.

    The curious thing about the Bible is the way it reads itself. Modern and postmodern folk, having talked themselves out of trusting Scripture so that they can more credulously swallow whatever some dimestore novelist tells them, spend most of their energy (should they ever get around to reading the Bible) fretting over the most elementary aspects about the text. So, if we propose to the modern mind that Mark wrote Mark or Isaiah had something to do with the authorship of Isaiah, this is often greeted with hoots of derision as simplistic fundamentalism and the question "How do you know?"...

The lawsuit filed on behalf of three Ontario residents by the Toronto law firms Lerner & Associates and Rochon Genova names Nortel and its auditor, Deloitte & Touche, in alleging the kind of fraud that has shaken investor confidence in the United States after scandals involving Enron Corp., WorldCom Inc....

    My daughter's PC needs to last about another 2 years (PC Clone, 128 Meg memory, 600+ MHz, couple dozen gig's left on the hard drives). It's now Win98SE, but several functions and programs are obviously corrupt .... MS isn't supporting Win98 anymore, so I need to replace the op system. Typical use is college homework/family internet and email/games/CD's, and movie clips ... Which op sys is better, given that I've got both XP-Home and Win2000 available?
