I apologize for things being quiet here at 1P5 today. I spent most of the morning writing up additional thoughts on the US election at my Substack, since I want to keep most of my political commentary somewhere that isn’t 1P5. Tomorrow will mark one week since election day, and is far from a settled matter. Specifically, I tackle the gaslighting that’s going on in an attempt to make people who suspect election fraud appear delusional:
Let’s just get this out of the way: those who are claiming that there’s “no basis” for the claims of voter fraud are simply not looking at the evidence being produced. There is clear evidence of at least some fraud, and of even more irregularity that might point to fraud.
Homily Is the peace of Jesus in your heart today?
We must stay rooted in Jesus if we want peace in our lives.
Homily Whether we have hope or whether we don’t is a matter for each of us to consider. So we must ask, what is our hope rooted in? Rooting ourselves and rooting our hope in Jesus, likewise means rooting ourselves to his Cross, confident in the grace, the new life, the resurrection, that springs from it.
CNA Staff, Nov 9, 2020 / 04:58 pm (CNA).- Members of the Australian media are on trial this week for charges of violating a gag order issued during the trial of Cardinal George Pell, whose 2018 conviction for sexual abuse of minors was overturned last spring.
In total, 18 media personnel as well as 12 media organizations could face punitive measures including prison sentences or fines if found guilty by the Supreme Court of the state of Victoria, according to the AP.
The County Court of Victoria imposed a sweeping injunction against media coverage of Pell’s trial in June 2018, suppressing news of the legal proceedings at the request of the prosecution. The first trial proceeded to a deadlock in the early autumn of 2018, and a five week retrial convicted Pell in December 2018.
The frail woman’s 73-year-old daughter was handcuffed and put in the back of a police car in an attempt to ‘restrain’ her.
