first_img Rector Collierville, TN Rector Albany, NY Featured Jobs & Calls [Anglican Journal] Five years after Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) released its final report and 94 calls to action as a response to the legacy of Canada’s residential school system, the Anglican Church of Canada’s national Indigenous archbishop and reconciliation animator say progress on reconciliation has been mixed.“I think that there are some things that have gone much better than I would have imagined,” says National Indigenous Anglican Archbishop Mark MacDonald. “There are other things that I thought would change more rapidly that haven’t changed at all.”MacDonald says that over the past five years he has seen a “substantial change in the way in which, overall, people perceive Canada and the way that the church in particular sees its work.”Read the entire article here.

Martin Luther King Jr. – A life unfinished

first_img LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Note – The Apopka MLK Parade begins at 2PM this afternoon. It starts at the Apopka Community Center/VFW Building at 519 South Central Avenue and ends at the John Bridges Center at 445 West 13th Street.Martin Luther King Jr. never saw the age of 40, but he lived a life that touched many and inspired a nation. His legacy will live eternally.At 33, he was pressing the case of civil rights with President John Kennedy. At 34, he galvanized the nation with his “I Have a Dream” speech. At 35, he won the Nobel Peace Prize.Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. speaking. (Photo by Julian Wasser//Time Life Pictures/Getty Images).At 39, he was assassinated, but he left a legacy of hope that continues today.Any number of historic moments in the civil rights struggle have been used to identify Martin Luther King, Jr. — prime mover of the Montgomery bus boycott, keynote speaker at the March on Washington, youngest Nobel Peace Prize laureate. But in retrospect, single events are less important than the fact that King, and his policy of nonviolent protest, was the dominant force in the civil-rights movement during its decade of greatest achievement, from 1957 to 1968.King was born Michael Luther King in Atlanta on Jan. 15, 1929 — one of the three children of Martin Luther King Sr., pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church, and Alberta (Williams) King, a former schoolteacher. (He was renamed “Martin” when he was about 6 years old.)A national hero and a civil-rights figure of growing importance, King summoned together a number of black leaders in 1957 and laid the groundwork for the organization now known as the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC). King was elected its president, and he soon began helping other communities organize their own protests against discrimination.Police used dogs to quell civil unrest in Birmingham, Ala., on May 3, 1963. Birmingham’s police commissioner “Bull” Connor also allowed fire hoses to be turned on young civil rights demonstrators. These measures set off a backlash of sentiment that rejuvenated the flagging civil rights movement. (Bill Hudson / The Associated Press)Three years later, King’s nonviolent tactics were put to their most severe test in Birmingham, during a mass protest for fair hiring practices and the desegregation of department-store facilities. Police brutality used against the marchers dramatized the plight of blacks to the nation at large, with enormous impact. King was arrested, but his voice was not silenced: He wrote the “Letter from a Birmingham Jail” to refute his critics.Later that year King was a principal speaker at the historic March on Washington, where he delivered one of the most passionate addresses of his career. Time magazine designated him as its Person of the Year for 1963. A few months later he was named the recipient of the 1964 Nobel Peace Prize. When he returned from Norway, where he had gone to accept the award, King took on new challenges. In Selma, Ala., he led a voter-registration campaign that ended in the Selma-to-Montgomery Freedom March. King next brought his crusade to Chicago, where he launched programs to rehabilitate the slums and provide housing.In the North, however, King soon discovered that young and angry blacks cared little for his preaching and even less for his pleas for peaceful protest. Their disenchantment was one of the reasons he rallied behind a new cause: the war in Vietnam.Although he was trying to create a new coalition based on equal support for peace and civil rights, it caused an immediate rift. The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) saw King’s shift of emphasis as “a serious tactical mistake.” The Urban League warned that the “limited resources” of the civil-rights movement would be spread too thin.But he never got back to his poverty plans. Death came for King on April 4, 1968, on the balcony of the Lorraine Hotel just off Beale Street in Memphis. While standing outside with Jesse Jackson and Ralph Abernathy, King was shot in the neck by a rifle bullet. His death caused a wave of violence in major cities across the country.However, King’s legacy has lived on.In 1969, his widow, Coretta Scott King, organized the Martin Luther King Jr. Center for Non-Violent Social Change. Today it stands next to his beloved Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta. His birthday, January 15th, is a national holiday, celebrated each year with educational programs, artistic displays, and concerts throughout the United States. The Lorraine Hotel where he was shot is now the National Civil Rights Museum.Note: Multiple publications contributed to this report.

Roe v Wade plaintiff dies

first_img The Anatomy of Fear Norma McCorvey, the plaintiff in the Roe v Wade case, died Saturday of heart failure at the age of 69. McCorvey’s lawsuit led to the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in 1973 that legalized abortion in America.McCorvey, who was given the pseudonym, “Jane Roe” for the case, was unmarried, unemployed and pregnant with her third child in 1969. Her first two children had been adopted by others.  She was living in Texas where abortion was illegal, except to save the life of the mother.  She tried to obtain an abortion from a doctor who referred her to an adoption agency.At some point, McCorvey was referred to two attorneys who were looking for pregnant women seeking abortions. They convinced McCorvey to sign an affidavit that allowed them to file the lawsuit.  The case took three years to reach the U.S. Supreme Court. McCovey never set foot in any courtroom. During the process she gave birth and the baby was adopted.In 1994 she converted to Christianity and began working in the pro-life movement. In 1998 she joined the Roman Catholic church.In 2003 she went to court in an unsuccessful attempt to overturn Roe v. Wade.McCorvey authored two books, I Am Roe in 1994 and Won by Love in 1997.In I am Roe she discusses the case that established the legality of abortion, recounts the situation that led her to the Supreme Court and discusses her life in the twenty years since the court’s controversial decision.Won by Love is an autobiography, in which she describes her experience as part of the pro-abortion movement and relates how she converted to Christianity and became “100% pro-life.”McCorvey made this short, one-minute video four years ago: TAGSRoe v Wade Previous articleAP photographer killed, reporter woundedNext articleThe history of President’s Day Dale Fenwick RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Please enter your name here Please enter your comment!

first_img The Anatomy of Fear Breaking NewsBy Reggie Connell/Managing Editor of The Apopka VoiceThe Apopka Voice has learned from a source inside the Apopka Fire Department that Apopka Fire Chief Chuck Carnesale will resign from his post on Friday.In an email to the AFD, Carnesale wrote: “From my first day as a 13-year-old Fire Explorer to the last three years as your fire chief, I’ve been extremely honored and blessed to be a part of this amazing department. I have had the opportunity to work with some of the most talented, gifted and dedicated individuals. I couldn’t be more proud of all of you as I am today. In just three short years, we’ve accomplished so much together as a team and prepared our great city for the next phase of its growth. Most importantly, we’ve made significant strides and implementations in firefighter safety. Believe me when I say, your safety has and always will be my number one priority.I am deeply grateful to all of you that have influenced my life since my career began in 1983. This fire department practically raised me in the absence of having a father. Words will never be enough to express my gratitude for those firefighters who came before all of us and helped build the Apopka Fire Department into what it is today. For the past 37 years, my sole focus has been the Apopka Fire Department. It is time to pass the torch to new leadership as I begin to address my personal well-being and spend some much needed time with my family out of state.Effective this Friday, August 30 at 5 PM, I will retire from this beloved organization and begin the next chapter of my life. I take with me cherished memories  of the many exceptional colleagues I have been fortunate to work with on behalf of the department.Thank you all for your kind words of encouragement and support over the last several months.

Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce comes out against “bathroom bill”

first_imgTwitter Facebook ReddIt ReddIt printSome of the largest urban chambers of commerce in Texas, including those in Dallas, Austin, El Paso and now Fort Worth, have come out against the “bathroom bill” proposed by Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, according to Texas Competes.Last month, the Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce joined Texas Competes, a coalition of business leaders who oppose discriminatory policies toward lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.The bill before the Texas Senate would require transgender people to use restrooms based on their gender at birth in public facilities such as schools and government buildings.Patrick introduced Senate Bill 6 on Jan. 5.Last March, North Carolina began enforcing a similar bathroom policy.Business leaders point to North Carolina as a reason Texas should not adopt the “bathroom bill,” said Mark Nurdin, chairman of the Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce.The NCAA withdrew seven championships from North Carolina, citing the state’s law as contrary to its values of inclusion and fairness, according to a statement.“It was just a tremendous amount of tension between the state and the city of Charlotte that affected their economy negatively,” Nurdin said. “It had a multi-million-dollar impact on the economy and thousands of jobs were impacted.”SB6 prompted the Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce to sign the Texas Competes pledge to uphold its stance on non-discrimination policies the city has had in place since 2009, Nurdin said.SB6 could nullify Fort Worth’s 2009 law, which protects against discrimination on the basis of gender identity, said Nurdin. Supporters of the bill say it is needed to protect the safety and privacy of individuals, Patrick said in a statement.“This issue is not about discrimination—it’s about public safety, protecting businesses and common sense,” Patrick said.Fort Worth chamber members criticize the bill, calling it discriminatory and unwelcoming to business, Nurdin said.The chamber contacted local business members to notify them of its stance on SB6.Out of about 40 business representatives who emailed their responses as of this month, at least 35 agreed with the chamber’s position, said Andra Bennett, the chamber’s spokeswoman.Some wrote they disagreed because of a lack privacy or a political difference of opinion about whether the state or local government should be in charge, Bennett said.Todd Knight, the owner of Dynasty Roofing, said he supports SB6 because it provides business owners with the freedom to decide their own restroom policy.“For business owners to be able to make their decisions and to run their companies in the way that they see best, is the thing that will help Texas profit the most,” said Knight.Some local business owners have already signed the Texas Competes pledge.A local artist who turns “trash to treasure” will be placing her Texas Competes bumper sticker on her truck.Rebecca Low of Rebecca Low Sculptural Gallery said she opposes the bill because she sees it as discriminatory and harmful to business.“If there’s a transgender person and they were born male and they are identifying as female, it’s probably not gonna be near as comfortable for them to be in the male bathroom,” said Low.Following what happened in North Carolina, Fort Worth chamber members foresee a similar fallout in Texas if its bill is passed.“That is going to change the landscape in Texas, and if it passes, it’s going to make, it’s going to send the message that Texas is not welcoming to all people,” Nurdin said.The NFL released a statement Feb. 10 saying Texas’ proposed law could jeopardize future Super Bowls or NFL events from being awarded to the state.A spokesperson from Patrick’s office responded with a statement to the Associated Press, saying the NFL would be able to set its own policies for its facilities.SB6 has been referred to the Senate State Affairs Committee, according to Texas Legislature Online.Committee members will consider and possibly amend the bill before it can be released from committee and sent to the house floor for consideration.

Newspaper and its director suspended for two months

first_imgNews In a letter addressed to President of the Republic, Ahmed Tejan Kabbah, Reporters Without Borders (Reporters sans frontières – RSF) protested against the suspension of the daily African Champion Newspaper and its director by the Independent Media Commission, a regulatory body for the profession. Without wishing to comment on the facts RSF asked the head of state to go to the competent authorities to demand that this measure be lifted. “The authorities should not forget that the initial aim of this commission was not to suspend or sanction the independent press. It should not be a substitute for legal measures and used to hinder journalists’ everyday work. In addition, an increasing number of observers are questioning the true independence of this commission”, stated Robert Ménard, General Secretary of RSF. “As the presidential elections draw closer, the President has to ensure that there is pluralism of information in Sierra Leone and make commitments to encourage freedom of the press”, the General Secretary added.According to information obtained by RSF, during the week of 11 March 2002, the Independent Media Commission ordered a 2-month suspension of the private daily African Champion Newspaper. The managing editor of the publication, Mohamed D. Koroma, has been prohibited from practicing journalism for the same period. When RSF spoke to him by phone, he stated his intention to continue publishing his newspaper regardless. The African Champion Newspaper was indeed distributed on March 18. In a press release, the commission explained that the newspaper had published an article with the title “Kabbah stinks in dubious deal again”, denouncing the corrupt son of the President. The newspaper added that the son was being protected by his father.
