SORT BY Relevancy
As an dedicated pro-peace activist, I frequently encounter anti-war proponents who have the idea that religion is at the heart of most wars. They cite the Crusades, the sectarian violence in the Mideast and "religious" riots in Myanmar, India, Bangladesh and elsewhere.
What they do not recognize is that religion is not the problem. Abuse of people's faith in religious leaders is. It is one thing to put your trust in God, but if you trust any leaders to tell you what God wants you are going to find that those who seek power will often abuse this trust. It doesn't matter if they are priests or politicians, imans or idolators praying at the altar of corporate profits.
With some 80% of Americans and most of the rest of the world professing belief in some sort of God, it is foolish and short-sighted to demonize the faith of the majority of people who we need to build a united international front against fascism and war. War was outlawed by the Kellogg-Briand treaty only because religious leaders put aside differences to work together with secular groups and individuals in the common cause of peace. That is a lesson we all must learn from.

Sometime after 450 AD (the date is uncertain), the Virgin Mary appeared, after an earthquake, to a monk of Saint-Severus of Syrian origin. She was kneeling at the edge of a rock. The kneeling Virgin allegedly stopped a flood by her prayers. According to legend, the rock kept the imprint of the apparition's knees. Hundreds of faithful still venerate Our Lady of the Kneeling today (Notre-Dame de l'Agenouillade). (The Miracle Hunter)
The Virgin Mary appears to St. Catherine Laboure in 1830 giving us the “Miraculous Medal” that shows Mary standing on the moon and the Devil under her feet.
St Augustine said (354-430), “Since the devil is the head of original sin, this head it was that Mary crushed: for sin never had any entry into the soul of this Blessed Virgin, which was consequently free from all stain”.
As I kept thinking about this, I just wanted to reach out to God and thank him, even in this place. He has given us so much.
I couldn’t help thinking of Our Lady of Lourdes, the Virgin Mary appeared to St. Bernadette Soubirous identifying herself, “I am the Immaculate Conception”.
I thought of the wonders God has worked at Lourdes that even today miracles are happening. I understand that several thousand people go to Lourdes France everyday from around the world.
God promised us signs and wonders through his presence among his Church.
What are the consequences when public servants, employed by the taxpayers, violate the public's trust? The city of Chicago erupted in protest over the Thanksgiving weekend after the release of the dashcam video graphically showing the killing of 17 year old Laquan McDonald by police officer Jason Van Dyke in 2014. For an entire year, this video has been withheld, and with its court ordered release came a series of questions as to who was involved in the coverup. Young Laquan, a ward of the State, should have received more care, support, and intervention, it seems, rather than to be shot to death for carrying a knife with which he allegedly was puncturing car tires. Illinois State Representative Mary Flowers joins us today to discuss the many levels of official misconduct that need to be addressed by elected officials as well as the voting public, in holding those accountable who violate the public trust. Can new laws and new regulations protect citizens from police abuse? Should the entire police force be scrapped and all forced to re-apply? Should mandatory psychological exams be instituted before an officer is hired? How do we weed out those who have already racked up complaints for excessive force, before they kill someone else
