Since at least 2000, the Holy See — the central government of the Catholic Church — had been informed of several abuse allegations against McCarrick, who retired as Archbishop of Washington, D.C., in 2006, when he reached the standard age of 75. According to Viganò, in 2009 or 2010, Pope Benedict XVI sanctioned McCarrick to no longer celebrate mass or travel on behalf of the church. In his statement, Viganò wrote that Monsignor Jean-François Lantheaume, the former first counsellor at the apostolic nunciature in Washington D.C., had told him that McCarrick’s reaction to the sanctions was “stormy.” … [Read more...] about Inside the Catholic Church’s Latest Scandal
Kerik’s change of heart about prison is nothing new. In 2011, just a few short years after he had attempted to lie his way into one of the most powerful intelligence/enforcement positions in the entire world, Kerik had the balls to send a “white paper” to Eric Holder calling for a sweeping reform of the justice system, which he said was in “dire need” of repair. … [Read more...] about The Year’s Most Disgusting Book
While it’s unclear whether Matthews was a fan of Vikernes, a friend of Matthews told BuzzFeed News that his alleged crimes may have been “inspired” by the film Lords of Chaos, which tells the story of Vikernes, the church burnings, and the Norwegian black metal scene of the early 1990s; one Facebook comment authored by Matthews, while not explicitly endorsing Vikernes’ actions, also endorsed the film, writing, “It’s a good movie, yea it’s a ‘Hollywood’ movie but hey it’s still fun, the only people against it are people who take themselves too seriously, and people who listen to everything varg says.” (It is perhaps of note that he may have been alone in this view; Rolling Stone‘s Kory Grow gave Lords of Chaos only 1.5 stars. We reached out to Jonas Åkerlund, the director of the film, and will update if we hear back.) … [Read more...] about Did a Norwegian Black Metal Band Inspire the Louisiana Church Burnings?
But even though MeWe is small, it is rapidly growing: Weinstein says the app currently has five million members, and it is projected to grow twice as much by the end of 2019; far more users than a white supremacist-friendly platform like Gab, which last year said it had 800,000 registered users. The app also plans to introduce new features like in-app gaming at the end of the year, which will likely attract even more users; as will the fact that Facebook has also taken the formal position of banning alt-right darlings like Milo Yiannopolous, Paul Joseph Watson, Alex Jones and Laura Loomer, adding fuel to the fire of far-right extremists’ beliefs that their views are being sacrificed on the pyre of the left-wing agenda. “We are here [on MeWe] for better treatment, until Facebook and Twitter disappear,” one MeWe user who frequently comments on QAnon forums told me. “It’s only a matter of time until that happens.” … [Read more...] about Inside MeWe, Where Anti-Vaxxers and Conspiracy Theorists Thrive
