Vatican says investigating alleged abuser who became priest

Vatican says investigating alleged abuser who became priest The Vatican said on Saturday it had opened an investigation into reports that a former teenage altar boy, who allegedly repeatedly forced a dormitory mate to have sex with him, went on to become a priest. The allegations concerning the St. Pius X Institute, known as a pre-seminary, were made in a recent book and in Italian television reports. The pre-seminary is a residence inside the Vatican for altar boys who serve at masses in St. Peter's Basilica mostly presided over by priests, bishops and cardinals.

How North Korean Weapons Could Start a War (in the Middle East)

How North Korean Weapons Could Start a War (in the Middle East) On November 4, a ballistic missile exploded above King Khalid Airport near Riyadh after being intercepted by Saudi Patriot missiles. The attack, launched by Houthi rebels in Yemen, led the Saudi government to blame Iran for supporting the rebels, escalating tensions across the Middle East. Curiously, however, many of Yemen’s ballistic missiles came from North Korea—a design that North Korea, in turn, had acquired from Egypt.


Thousands of Zimbabweans demand Mugabe stands down at Harare protest

Thousands of Zimbabweans demand Mugabe stands down at Harare protest  Euphoric crowds of several thousand people have gathered in Zimbabwe's capital to demand the departure of President Robert Mugabe after nearly four decades in power. In a colorful gathering that even days ago would have drawn an immediate police crackdown, Zimbabweans giddy with joy raced through intersections, raising their arms in triumph. Young men shouted, laughed and embraced. Some had posters with an image of the military commander who swept in earlier this week and put Mugabe under house arrest, with the slogan: "Go, go, our general!!!" Marchers handed flags to soldiers, who accepted and waved. "It's like Christmas," said one marcher, Fred Mubay, who said Zimbabweans have been suffering for a long time. The 93-year-old Mugabe, the world's oldest head of state, is said to be asking for more time amid negotiations with regional leaders that seek his exit with a veneer of dignity. A man carries a poster calling for Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe to step down  Credit: PHILIMON BULAWAYO But he is virtually powerless and deserted by most of his allies, with others arrested, and the crowds in Harare on Saturday were making it clear the country was impatient to move on without him. Even as concerns remained about who next would be in charge and what freedoms might be available if the military lingered in power - or if Mugabe's longtime but recently fired deputy led a new government - people reveled in the rare chance to speak out. The party has started in Harare. Choppers overhead, 1000s here. More pouring in. #zimbabwepic.twitter.com/N3TqMUgxl0— Joe Parkinson (@JoeWSJ) November 18, 2017 The demonstrators, in the event approved by the military, hope a big turnout will speed up the official end of Mugabe's rule, which is widely blamed for the collapse of an economy that was once one of Africa's wealthiest. Veterans of the long liberation war against white minority rule, once close allies of Mugabe, took part, along with opposition activists who have faced police crackdowns by the Mugabe government. At an intersection, a vendor held up a newspaper with the headline: "Mugabe cornered." One driver was so jubilant that he got out of his moving car and danced in front of it for a couple of minutes as the empty vehicle coasted slowly down a street lined with cheering crowds. Protesters gather calling for Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe  Credit:  PHILIMON BULAWAYO Some white Zimbabweans joined the crowd at Harare's Freedom Square, also known as Robert Mugabe Square. Some whites and blacks hugged each other. Soldiers began approaching the demonstrators and urging them to head to the Zimbabwe Grounds, where speeches were set to be delivered. The Zimbabwe Grounds were chosen for the symbolism. The location is where Zimbabweans gathered to cheer Mugabe's return from exile in 1980 after the liberation war from white minority rule. Now the crowds wish to meet there and urge Mugabe's departure. Having a little sob watching the march in #Harare from afar. @bevseb took this amazing video. People fist-pumping and thanking the soldiers for forcing #Mugabe to resign. Jubilation on ground.

Row over 'non-political' Bible Museum holding fundraiser in Trump hotel

Row over 'non-political' Bible Museum holding fundraiser in Trump hotel A Bible Museum opening in Washington DC has come under fire for organising a $50,000 (£37,915) per table fundraising gala at a Trump hotel amid questions over its political affiliations. The Museum of the Bible holds a preview in Washington Credit: Reuters The museum, which opened its doors to the public on Friday, has promoted itself as a non-political institution but critics have questioned its decision to host a fundraiser at a hotel owned by President Donald Trump's company. The $500 million Museum of the Bible spans an entire block of the city, making it the largest museum dedicated to the holy book in the world. Its administrators have taken pains to hire a broad group of scholars as advisers and exhibits are planned from the Vatican Museum as well as the Israel Antiquities Authority. Exhibits are readied inside the Museum of the Bible Credit: Jacquelyn Martin  But controversy has surrounded the museum's main financial backers, the deeply religious and conservative Green family, who own the $4 billion arts and craft chain Hobby Lobby.  The 430,000-square-foot museum includes pieces from the family's collection from the Dead Sea Scrolls, towering bronze gates inscribed with text from the Gutenberg Bible and a soundscape of the 10 plagues, enhanced by smog and a glowing red light to symbolize the Nile turned to blood. However, attention has focused on the Greens' record of putting their fortune and influence behind spreading their particular religious beliefs.  The institution's management has made extensive efforts to emphasise its inclusive, non-political nature but critics have highlighted its proximity to the heart of the nation's political epicenter - situated just three blocks from the US Capitol. With a digital arcade ceiling above, a visitor walks down the entrance hall of the Museum of the Bible during a preview day in Washington Credit: Reuters Some of the museum's staff have criticised the decision to host a fundraising event at the Trump International Hotel, telling the Washington Post it gave the impression they were "aligning with politics".  Tickets for the black tie fundraiser on Thursday night ranged from $2,500 (£1,895) for a seat to $50,000 for a table. Donors who contributed sums of $50,000, $100,000 or $250,000 were offered perks such as tickets to a Broadway musical and a VIP reception event. The museum's vice president, Steven Bickley, has insisted the hotel was "the only place available for our date", adding "we were looking for a venue, not a statement". Critics have also seized on a changing mission statement of the museum from "[inspiring] confidence in the absolute authority and reliability of the Bible", to a new, more neutral goal of inviting people to learn more about the Bible.  Steve Green, the owner of Hobby Lobby and a founder and major backer of the Museum of the Bible Credit: Jacquelyn Martin  Steve Green, president of Hobby Lobby, said the institution he largely funded is meant to educate, not evangelise, though critics are dubious.  The museum will be the centerpiece of several of the Green family's religious efforts, including sponsoring research on the Bible and promoting a Bible curriculum they hope will be used in U.S. public schools.  An initial attempt in an Oklahoma school district was withdrawn following complaints the lessons were not neutral. The Green family association has cast something of a cloud over the museum after the US department of justice accused the family's company of smuggling ancient artefacts taken from Iraq. Hobby Lobby agreed to pay a $3 million fine and return more than 5,000 items in a government settlement.  The Museum of the Bible issued a statement following the settlement stating that none of the artifacts involved were part of the Museum’s collection.  "The Museum adheres to the current Association of Art Museum Directors standards on the Acquisition of Archaeological Material and Ancient Art, as well as guidelines set forth by the American Alliance of Museums," it said.
