WATCH: Pope Francis blames coronavirus on nature ‘having a fit’ over environmental damage | News | Lifesitenews

He’s a sucker for the interview.

Stating that “curiously the planet hasn’t been very clean for a long time,” the interviewer asked, “Is it possible that this is nature’s hour of reckoning with us?” Pope Francis answered: “There’s a saying that you surely know: God always forgives, we forgive sometimes, [but] nature never forgives.”

“Fires, earthquakes . . . that is, nature is having a fit, so that we will take care of nature.”

Mother Nature? Mother of God!

New Chicago police superintendent outlines his priorities – Chicago Sun-Times

This is a wordy, b.s. statement, boding no good for the city.

He has three priorities, the first of which is to make cops feel good about him.

. . . conveying to the men and women of the Chicago Police Department that I care about them. I have this saying that, ‘People don’t care what you know. They know that you care. Sincerely care about, right now, the virus’s impact on them and their lives and their families’ lives.”

The second is a plan:

. . . Mayor Lori Lightfoot and interim Supt. Charlie Beck have worked to craft [worked hard too, I bet. did they do
] since January to keep Chicago safe this summer . . . and prevent the number of homicides and shootings from spiking along with the temperatures.

. . . We have to have strong plans . . . We have to expand on those plans. . .

The third:

to comply with the consent decree outlining the terms of federal court oversight over the Chicago Police Department. In preparing himself to take the reins in Chicago, Brown said he read all 800 pages of that decree.

New police chief does not have one priority, to promote public safety? Put away or otherwise thwart the bad guys? Supporting cops? And what the hell is this about people not caring what you know but knowing that you care?

Hope he does everything well. He already knows how to shoot it in a public statement.

Not just sneezing and coughing . . .

Glad to hear of rapid response by finest brains (as below), but main thing is what it or they found: Not just sneezes and coughs, as if you didn’t have enough to worry about. Read it:

White House-backed panel uses AI to distill data needed to battle coronavirus

When scientific advisers informed the White House that the novel coronavirus might be spread not just in sneezes and coughs but by talking or even breathing, it was the result of a new, rapid response effort that matches the country’s finest brains with a daunting array of evidence.

Keep out of breathing distance.

The church after coronavirus: new understandings of social mission | National Catholic Reporter

NC Reporter people are rarin’ to go.

Catholic parishes across the world are closed. Millions of Catholics have been unable to physically take part in the celebration of the Mass for weeks, and may not be able to again for months.

Simply put, the coronavirus pandemic is fundamentally changing how we do and be church.

Vas ist der “fundamentally”?

But Reporter folks have been eager for that for a long time, have they not?
