Brazils 'Fire days' are in direct contradiction of The Popes Laudato Si The bigger crime is the direct ethnic cleansing and land grab from indigenous tribes

The Amazon basin sits almost entirely within Catholic countries. The church must speak out, faith is still a powerful driver in S America. A unified church should mean condemnation from all over the world. Where are the voices?

I write in memory of my father. I write so I’ll be on record. I write so my grandchildren will know that during the Trump era I wasn’t duped, I wasn’t silent, and I didn’t go along for the ride. I want them to know that I spoke out.

Sorry to see John Deasy depart Irish politics. He was a contrarian but there was much more to him than that. It must be remembered he was responsible for the drive to completely outlaw handguns in 2008. Saw potention of from very early on too.

I literally went to a church today and prayed. But to be honest no transcendental being can save the Amazonas. This is on us. We have to change what is happening to this planet. Bolsonaro, Trump and the likes can be stopped. Demonstrate, make noise, vote. Now.

It is wholly untrue that in February Francis “told his senior clerics that the Church itself was being victimised over claims of child sexual abuse, and persecuted by “the Devil”.’ He never said any such thing.

I wrote about the Ignatian Solidarity Network and spent a few days at a training the organization hosted that was part spiritual retreat, part activist boot camp for young Catholics at Jesuit universities.

•GFA was not just "agreement between two traditions in NI" but a democratic covenant between two traditions in Ireland, unquestionably endorsed by referendum and directly reflected in the Irish constitution. •Backstop to uphold its precepts & purposes is not anti-democratic. 1/

David, enjoy your podcast in Beirut. Any chance you could carry an episode on the positive economic impact of refugees ? UNHCR developing the 'Global Compact' approach. 'New Deal' type arrangements; use of cash card system; skills transfers; etc.
