It’s important to understand Pope Francis’s role as the head of the Catholic Church: Pope Francis is not the Catholic Church and vice versa. He teaches and spreads doctrine on faith and morals, directs Catholics throughout the global network of dioceses and promotes leadership in Vatican City. If President Obama has a stubborn GOP-lead Congress, Pope Francis has one of the oldest and wealthiest religious institutions in the world, with its age-old beliefs and hierarchal structure. As his progressive teachings reverberate among global masses, including non-believers, is Pope Francis the 21st-century game changer on the status of Christianity?
Laden with silver rings — gold being too rich for his taste — and a miniscule pope-mobile, Pope Francis is touring the Northeast United States, bearing a message of pseudo-Marxism and calls for reform, based in what appears to be the language of the left.

I do not like talking about race. Why? Because it makes me uncomfortable. Why? Because it makes you uncomfortable. Why? Because race, you maintain, does not exist. Talking about race, you continue, creates a problem: The problem of talking about race and making you uncomfortable. And why is this is a problem? Because you said it was.
Growing up, my father taught me many life lessons. As a young man, a father’s lectures may tend to go in one ear and out the other, more often than not.
Currently suspended head football coach Kyle Flood is going to end up being fired at the end of the season, at least, in my opinion.
Hey friends, so as the semester begins to carry on and we leave summer behind (R.I.P.), it’s time to start thinking about what really matters — spring break.
Fifteen years ago, from September 6 – 8, 2000, leaders from around the world convened at the United Nations Millennium Summit to create guidelines for what has since become the biggest global anti-poverty push in history.
Fourteen years after 9/11 and the “War on Terror” is still a disastrous failure. After those attacks, the names of al-Qaeda leaders Osama bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahiri were on everyone’s lips.
While making my way through the Involvement Fair, which took place on Labor Day, one table caught my attention. At this structure stood a woman holding a white marker board that posed two questions, “Does science ‘know’ everything?” and “Can faith be rational?” Passing by a few times to gather reconnaissance and to see how other students interacted, the time came to make my approach. After a brief exchange on the value of a properly worded sentence, I made my tallies — a vote for each — and was on my way to ponder the questions at length.
Last month, Rural Affairs Secretary Richard Lochhead announced Scotland’s intent to prohibit the growth of genetically modified (GM) crops, in favor of preserving the nation’s “clean and green” standing. The move to issue a formal ban has ruffled feathers since, coming under heavy fire by the nation’s business sector and scientists alike. Others, with Monsanto fresh in their minds, have come out in support of the ban.
According to a Dove market research project “Only 4 percent of women around the world consider themselves beautiful." So in 2004, Unilever, Dove’s parent company, launched the “Campaign for Real Beauty." As written on their website, its mission is to be “an agent of change to educate and inspire girls on a wider definition of beauty and to make them feel more confident about themselves." The campaign manifests itself in various promotional advertisements, workshops, and various marketing campaigns.Fast forward to this year’s line up of women’s empowerment advertisements, such as Cover Girl’s #GIRLSCAN campaign, Always’ #LIKEAGIRL — both companies respectively owned by multinational corporation Proctor & Gamble — and Dove’s #ChooseBeautiful Campaign, empowerment advertisements are on the rise and selling.With seemingly realistic orchestrated videos of heart-warming and uplifting stories of self-love, body positivity, gay marriage and other social issues, these companies want to make sure that everyone who owns any kind of video streaming device are a consciousness raising individual.However, a common thread seems to appear these empowerment messages, by marketing focused on a particular set of women’s issues.
Over the past few years, the Duggar family has been prominent in the media. They had a TV show on TLC called “19 Kids and Counting.” The Duggars may think the show was so popular because people were interested in their lives and how they manage to raise 19 kids in one house at the same time, but in reality it is because of the bizarre lifestyle they lead. The most bizarre thing about the Duggars is their religion. However, they are not very upfront about what they actually call their religion.
The United Kingdom’s Home Office released a statement explaining their banning of rapper, Tyler “Tyler, The Creator” Okonma from the country for the next three to five years. The Office cited his music for encouraging violence and inciting terrorism as reasons for the ban. They continued, stating that they did not believe Okonma respected the nation’s “shared values,” and that his presence would be “(un)conducive to the public good.” Regardless of what one might think of Tyler’s art, one must find the Office’s decision extreme. First, due to the fact that his music is his art, if one is to apprise art, one must be cognizant of the distinction between the art and the artist. One is not to interpret an artist’s lyrics as the artist’s admission of agreement with a set of seemingly represented ideals in the lyrics. Such an interpretation is a misreading of the art.
