It is not the state, but the church, that determines whether worship of God is necessary:Former US Judge McConnell

Published

on

Washington : McConnell, a former Judge of the U.S. Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals and a Stanford Law School professor, says the church is not the state that determines whether worship of God is necessary. He said that the nation should only be concerned if certain forms of religious worship are dangerous to public health. He was delivering the keynote address at an online meeting hosted by Maggie Gallagher, executive director of the Benedict XVI Institute for Sacred Music and Divine Worship in San Francisco, on the theme “Church, State, and Epidemic.”

If the state decides what is healthy, then the church has to decide what is important, ”Connell said. He added that although the government has the power to restrict religious activity, it does not have the power to restrict religious activities in a more rigorous manner than other comparable activities. He noted that the guidelines published by the Thomistic Institute of the Dominican House of Studies, prepared by theologians, liturgical scholars, and health care professionals, were detailed and acceptable in regard to the opening of temples during the lockdown.

In addition to Connell, San Francisco bishop Salvatore Cordelione, who participated in the online event, shared a similar opinion. The bishop said that when the church has the authority to decide what is necessary, it is not right for the government to do so. He reminded the state that it is the responsibility of the state to say what is safe. Due to the enormous number of COVID patients in the United States, the uncertainty over the opening of temples continues.

‘God Bless and Roll Tide’: Family Receives Amazing ‘Blessing’ Following Cruel Prank on 7-Year-Old Son

Published

on

Seven-year-old Brody Kirk really likes the Alabama football team. In fact, he’s such a big fan, he cried happy tears when the team scored its first 66-yard touchdown pass by quarterback Mac Jones during last weekend’s Iron Bowl between Alabama and the Auburn Tigers.

After Brody’s dad, Cody Kirk, posted a video of his son’s excitement over the impressive pass to wide received DeVonta Smith, some cruel prankster called the Kirk household, pretending to be an employee with the University of Alabama. The person gave the 7-year-old boy a fake invite to come meet the entire team and coach Nick Saban. But it was all a ruse.

When the family found out it was a mean-spirited trick, the kid’s mom, Brooke Kirk, wrote about it on social media. On Thursday, Brooke shared quite the surprise with people who have followed the story.

Greg Byrne, the athletic director for the university, caught wind of what happened to Brody and reached out to Cody. The entire ordeal, Brooke recalled, “upset [Byrne] very much.” So the athletic director asked for the family’s address so he could send Brody “a surprise.”

“This ‘Bama box’ came in the mail today!” Brooke wrote in a Facebook post published Thursday, sharing photos of a prize-filled package, which included a football signed by Saban and his wife as well as an autographed picture of the famous coach. Brody’s mom called the unexpected gift “such a blessing.”

“Brody was so excited and so incredibly thankful for this sweet gift!” she continued. “This was just another amazing example of how God works all things for the good of those who love Him. He took this crude prank that someone played on our 7 year old and turned it into a blessing that made my sweet boy so happy. We didn’t avenge. God did. He got the last laugh and we got a ’Bama blessing. God bless and roll tide!”

The 69-year-old Saban was not able to be with his team in-person for the weekend game because he recently tested positive for COVID-19 and has been quarantining. He described the distance as “very hard,” particularly given he feels “great.”

അമേരിക്കയിൽ തൊഴിലില്ലായ്മ വേതനത്തിനുള്ള അപേക്ഷകർ

Published

ന്യൂയോർക്ക്∙ അമേരിക്കയിൽ തൊഴിലില്ലായ്മ വേതനത്തിന് അപേക്ഷിക്കുന്ന അമേരിക്കക്കാരുടെ എണ്ണം കഴിഞ്ഞയാഴ്ച 712,000 ആയി. യുഎസ് സമ്പദ്‌വ്യവസ്ഥയും തൊഴിൽ വിപണിയും ബിസ്സിനസ്സ് – വ്യവസായ മേഖലകളും കോവിഡ് വ്യാപനത്തിന്റെ വൈറൽ പൊട്ടിത്തെറിമൂലം സമ്മർദ്ദത്തിലാണെന്നതിന്റെ ഏറ്റവും പുതിയ സൂചനയാണിത്.

യുഎസ് സമ്പദ്‌വ്യവസ്ഥയെ വൈറസ് തളർത്തുന്നതിനു മുൻപ്, കഴിഞ്ഞ മാർച്ചിൽ ഓരോ ആഴ്ചയും തൊഴിലില്ലായ്മ ആനുകൂല്യങ്ങൾക്കായി അപേക്ഷിക്കുന്നവരുടെ എണ്ണം ഏകദേശം 2,25,000 ആയിരുന്നു. പുതിയ സ്ഥിരീകരിച്ച വൈറൽ കേസുകൾ ഇപ്പോൾ ശരാശരി 1,60,000 കവിയുന്നതിനാൽ, സമ്പദ്‌വ്യവസ്ഥയുടെ മിതമായ വീണ്ടെടുക്കൽ കൂടുതൽ അപകടത്തിലാണ്.

പകർച്ചവ്യാധി കാരണം കഴിഞ്ഞ ഒൻപത് മാസത്തിന് ശേഷവും നിരവധി തൊഴിൽ രംഗങ്ങൾ മന്ദഗതിയിലായതിനാൽ പലതും നഷ്ടത്തിലാണ് ഇപ്പോൾ പ്രവർത്തിക്കുന്നത്. തന്മൂലം തൊഴിലുടമകൾ തൊഴിലാളികളുടെ ജോലി സമയം വെട്ടിക്കുറയ്ക്കുകയോ, ജോലിക്കാരെ താൽക്കാലിക അവധിയിൽ പ്രവേശിപ്പിക്കുവാനോ നിർബന്ധിതരാവുന്നു.
