Bishop: North Carolina priest kept on leave on abuse claims
A Catholic priest in North Carolina will remain on administrative leave after allegations of sexual abuse against him were revealed last year, the Charlotte diocese's bishop said.
Bishop Peter Jugis made the announcement to St. Matthew parishioners in a letter Wednesday, writing that he had accepted the recommendation of the diocese’s Lay Review Board to keep the Rev. Patrick Hoare out of ministry, The Charlotte Observer reported.
Hoare was originally put on administrative leave in December after the diocese received “an allegation against him of child sexual abuse that was said to have occurred in Pennsylvania more than 25 years ago, before Father Hoare entered ministry” the Charlotte Observer quoted Jugis as writing.

'We Have A Black People Problem': Facebook Worker Claims Racial Discrimination
A Black Facebook employee is accusing his employer of racial discrimination.
In a complaint filed Thursday with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, Oscar Veneszee Jr. said the social network does not give Black workers equal opportunities in their careers.
"We have a Black people problem," Veneszee told NPR. Veneszee is a Navy veteran who recruits other veterans and people of color as part of diversity initiatives at Facebook's infrastructure division. "We've set goals to increase diversity at the company, but we've failed to create a culture at the company that finds, grows and keeps Black people at the company."
Veneszee, who has worked for Facebook since 2017, filed the employment discrimination charge along with Howard Winns, Jr., and Jazsmin Smith — both of whom Veneszee recruited — who said they applied to work at Facebook but had not been hired, they alleged, because they are Black. The claim, they said, was filed on behalf of "all Black Facebook employees and applicants to Facebook."

Young Americans Are Partying Hard and Spreading Covid-19 Quickly
Covid-19 is increasingly a disease of the young, with the message to stay home for the sake of older loved ones wearing off as the pandemic wears on.
The dropping age of the infected is becoming one of the most pressing problems for local officials, who continued Wednesday to set curfews and close places where the young gather. U.S. health experts say that they are more likely to be active and asymptomatic, providing a vast redoubt for the coronavirus that has killed almost 130,000 Americans.
In Arizona, half of all positive cases are people from the ages of 20 to 44, according to state data. The median age in Florida is 37, down from 65 in March. In Texas’s Hays County, people in their 20s make up 50% of the victims.

Couple Married for 53 Years Hold Hands as They Die of Coronavirus on the Same Day
A couple who were married for more than half a century reportedly succumbed to coronavirus complications on the same day in Texas.
According to CNN, Betty and Curtis Tarpley, 80 and 79, died within an hour of each other on June 18 and held hands during their final minutes together.
The couple's son, Tim Tarpley, told the network that Betty showed symptoms of the deadly disease just before she was taken to Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Fort Worth on June 9. Curtis was admitted to the same hospital just two days later.
Tarpley said Betty phoned both him and his sister, telling them she was at peace with dying as her condition continued to decline.
"I just screamed, 'No!' I was like, 'I've got too much, too many other things to do in this life that I want to show you, and I'm not ready,'" he recalled to CNN.

Trump appointee who raged against ‘homo-empire’ thinks drag queens are part of a ‘Satanic agenda of sexual perversion’
Employees at the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) have raised concerns over the appointment of an official with a deeply homophobic record.
Merritt Corrigan was recently appointed by Trump as deputy White House liaison at USAID despite her troubling record on LGBT+ issues.
Her history of homophobic comments initially surfaced earlier this month, when it was revealed she had attacked the US “homo-empire” and “tyrannical LGBT agenda”.
More messages have now been surfaced by CNN’s KFile, which reveal even more extreme views.

People Are Calling Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Out for Their Insensitive Posts
For the common non-billionaire — lacking in Gap collaborations, shapewear empires, and private jets to whisk them away from it all — the past several months have been trying, to say the very least.
But for Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, this is a time to reflect on their personal wealth. West has a reported net worth of $1.3 billion, while Kardashian is a newly-minted $900 millionaire (though West would beg to differ).
On Monday, both parties decided to take their financial privilege to the timeline. Kardashian began, posting two photos of her 7-year-old daughter North West’s “Freesian horse” (Horse twitter quickly corrected her spelling — it’s Friesian), noting that they have 14 of the breed at their Wyoming ranch. Pricing differs depending on an array of factors, but a single Friesian horse can cost more than $50,000.

The world isn't laughing at America -- it's pitying us
It's like the Fourth of July, Bonfire Night, Diwali and Chinese New Year -- every night.
In the oppressive heat of the Covid-19 summer, US cities are suddenly reverberating with the crack and boom of fireworks that blast on into the small hours. Authorities haven't got a clue where the explosives are coming from.
It's perhaps not surprising that some people are letting off steam -- or rockets and firecrackers -- after months stuck at home under shutdowns. But the nightly cacophony is not just a nuisance to those whose nerves are already stretched to the breaking point by recent months -- they can cause injuries and house fires. In Brooklyn, troublemakers appeared to target a homeless man with a thrown firecracker.
One of Trump's big election lines in 2016 was that the world was laughing at America. That wasn't true, but now the reality is worse: A bemused world is pitying America.
Was Jesus Black Or White? How One Church Leader Just Changed The Debate
What race was Jesus of Nazareth, one of the most consequential figures in the history of the world? Nobody can say for certain, but based on recent comments by the head of the Church of England, it is time to revisit whether or not Jesus should be portrayed as a white man.
In an interview with the BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby addressed the question of how the western church portrays Jesus’s race. When asked by the interviewer if the way Jesus is represented through imagery, and whether it is time to “reimagine” the physical presentation, the Archbishop was candid.
Many critics also claim that the Eurocentric representation of Jesus has been used to perpetuate white supremacy and reinforce racist stereotypes that deify whiteness while demonizing Black individuals. The white representation of Jesus is also deemed by many to be an offensive disregard of the possibility that Jesus himself had a Black complexion.
Black Lives Matter co-founder describes herself as ‘trained Marxist’
“The first thing, I think, is that we actually do have an ideological frame. Myself and Alicia in particular are trained organizers,” she said, referring to BLM co-founder Alicia Garza.
“We are trained Marxists. We are super-versed on, sort of, ideological theories. And I think that what we really tried to do is build a movement that could be utilized by many, many black folk,” Cullors added in the interview with Jared Ball of The Real News Network.
It also expresses its appreciation for the work of the US Communist Party, “especially Black communists,” as well as its support for “the great work of the Black Panther Party, the American Indian Movement, Young Lords, Brown Berets, and the great revolutionary rainbow experiments of the 1970s,” Breitbart reported.

Mexican president slammed after comments on women staying at home
Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador on Thursday suggested the tradition of women staying at home to take care of older family members was key to battling the coronavirus pandemic, sparking criticism his comments were sexist.
“People want to change women’s role and that is one of the just causes of feminism, but the tradition in Mexico is that daughters are the ones who care the most for parents. We men are more detached,” Lopez Obrador said.
Whereas seniors in nursing homes in Europe had suffered with the pandemic, Mexico’s elders were helped by the custom of being cared for at home, he said, adding that the “Mexican family is the most important social security institution” in the country.

Reform, not revolution, is path to Black equality, says UK activist
Those fighting for Black racial equality in Britain need to put realistic reform over dreams of revolution, said Imarn Ayton, an activist who has had a prominent role in protests that swept London in recent weeks.
Ayton is calling on the government to implement findings of a series of reviews on ethnic injustices including the Lammy Review of 2017. That looked into the treatment of ethnic minorities in the criminal justice system.
More radical in its stated aims is Black Lives Matter UK, which calls itself an “abolitionist movement” that does not believe in reforming the police, state or prisons. It says it wants to dismantle capitalism.
“BLM do not believe in reform. I do believe in reform,” said Ayton. “We do have to be united but we don’t necessarily have to agree on everything. We can have the same objectives but have a different approach.”
