This #SundayMorning we're investigating an all-boys Catholic school that has been mired in controversy after a video of students taunting a Native American elder & Vietnam vet while on a field trip went viral.

Do schools like #CovingtonCatholic foster racism?
(THREAD)
(2) Covington is a Catholic private high school in Park Hills, minutes from Cincinnati. At 584 students, it's the only all-male high school in Northern Kentucky.

The $8,000/year tuition may explain why Covington's website seems to reflect an incredibly white, male student body.
(3) Nearby Covington school district is the most diverse district in Kentucky. So the makeup of the student body at Covington Catholic raises red flags.

Posh private schools tend to reinforce segregation.
It's been a long-standing problem in the south.

In some church somewhere, a preacher warning this is the end of world.
He very creatively ties this to Trump:
"Begley noted that the blood moon will pass over D.C. on the 2nd anniversary of President Trump’s inauguration. Additionally, he said, Trump was born on a blood moon on June 14, 1946, exactly 700 days before Israel was declared a nation."

This #SundayMorning Trump has reiterated his threats to declare a national emergency and bypass Congress to build his border wall.

Can Trump abuse his executive powers in this way and what, if anything, can be done to stop him?

#SundayThoughts #SundayMotivation
(THREAD)
(2) First off, there are not a lot of rules about declaring national emergencies. And sadly, even in America, this executive power is rarely checked by Congress.

It's a tactic that has been used by both authoritarians and democracies around the world.
washingtonpost.com/world/2019/01/…
(3) While Trump can declare a national emergency at his discretion, he can't invoke one indefinitely without Congressional approval. And there are some limits to how this authority can be used to deploy troops & use funding.

On the Sunday after Christmas, it is a tradition in many churches to read John 1:1-18.

It is a beautiful passage that opens the Gospel of John.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through him, and without him not one thing came into being.
What has come into being in him was life, and the life was the light of all people. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it.

Well, the fight for 2020 begins now.

Coincidence that there is a sudden and recordable uptick in Maga and Sanders trolls flooding the field of every reasonably critical tweet or thread about Trump or Sanders, or positive tweets about Clinton or Democrats?

No.

Dig in your heels folks.

What worked so well in 2016 is about to get doubled down on for 2020.
The fake news is going to get faker and there is going to be a bell of a lot more of it.

The attacks on progressive women will be more intense. @KamalaHarris, stay strong.

We need to get the message out to every good, thoughtful American that the Democratic Party, while not perfect, not the enemy.

We must tell the media we will not tolerate in the next two years what we were forced to swallow in 2016. We will aggressively push back this time.

Isaiah 9:2

"The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who lived in a land of deep darkness - on them light has shined."
Isaiah 9: 3-4

"You have multiplied the nation, you have increased its joy; they rejoice before you as with joy at the harvest, as people exult when dividing plunder. For the yoke of their burden, and the bar across their shoulders, the rod of their oppressor, you have broken..."

Today is the 4th #SundayMorning of #Advent. The traditional reading for this day comes from Luke 1, the prophetic sermon of the pregnant Mary regarding Jesus.
I grew up Methodist, so, other than at Christmastime, we didn't pay much attention to Mary. That was, back in those days, something that Catholics did. (And I was a little girl just as Vatican II met--things were very different btwn Prots & RCs then.)
So I didn't know this sermon.

Although some people refer to it as a "song," it really is an extemporaneous sermon. Because Mary preaches -- she brings it!

The Fed and Jerome Powell Have Increased Annual US Debt by HALF A TRILLION DOLLARS in Interest Payments! 😡 I want the Wall for Christmas and the Fed to be ended for Easter. ⁦@realDonaldTrump⁩ ⁦@POTUSmarkets.businessinsider.com/news/stocks/fe…
The Fed is a private group that makes the richest 💰off the taxpayers backs &putting 🇺🇸into debt. Trump can pay off 70% of our debt by end of 2nd term by implementing this with no adverse effects to the economy with another huge cut in our taxes. #SundayMorning @realDonaldTrump
Trump could easily use an EO to remove the money power from the fed and return in its powers as intended to Congress. Do you want inflation w/ no interest attached to it? Yes! #SundayMotivation 👉🏻

Glad you included @emilyjoypoetry and criticism of the #ChurchToo summit here, @publicroad, but referring to our #Exvangelical community only as “those who have been wounded by evangelicalism so badly that they have left it” is dismissive and insulting. We’re much more than that.
Call us exvangelicals or ex-evangelicals or exvies, please, @publicroad. But whatever you call us, please take note of the ways we’ve organized to take back our own narratives and to expose the rot in evangelicalism. We didn’t leave merely because we were hurt.
We left, and have organized as a community, @publicroad, because we have important things to say about the rot at the center of white evangelicalism, which is irredeemably abusive, anti-pluralist, and anti-democratic. We are stakeholders in discussions of evangelicalism.

Today is the Third Sunday of #Advent. There's a custom of lighting a pink candle on this day (instead of purple), to remind us of the theme of Advent 3: Joy. #SundayMorning
It is also called "Gaudete Sunday," from the Latin word for "rejoice," and an ancient prayer based in these words of scripture: "Rejoice in the Lord always; again I say, rejoice."
Years ago, at a particular church, I showed up on Gaudete Sunday and was not "rejoicing." Indeed, I was struggling with two life crises -- divorce and job loss -- at the same time.

This #SundayMorning let's take a walk through the National Climate Assessment, released on a holiday weekend by an administration eager to obscure the conclusions of the report from the public.

What was the White House so scared of?

Here are a few of the main takeaways
(THREAD)
(2) First, climate change has a steep cost. And we're already paying it.

“The impacts & costs of climate change are being felt in the US & changes in the severity of recent extreme weather can be attributed with higher confidence to human-caused warming"

(3) How expensive is climate change? By the end of the century on our current trajectory, it would cost the US more than $500 billion EVERY YEAR in crop damage, lost labor & extreme weather damages. That's nearly 2x the economic blow of the Great Recession
