  • Pope Francis is seen by many as having a positive impact on the Vatican by supporting gay marriage and now meeting with victims of sexual assault caused by priests. However, the former Nuncio (or, religious ambassador) for the United States issued an 11 page explosive essay claiming that Francis played a role in the coverup of sexual assault charges and called for the Pope’s resignation. The Pope responded by discrediting the unsubstantiated claims and saying that he trusts no one will believe them.
  • There has been another mass shooting, this time at a video game competition. Three people are dead, including the gunman. 11 more are injured. This video captures the moment when the shooting took place. It is hard to watch: https://globalnews.ca/video/4410445/shooting-at-madden-online-gaming-tournament-in-jacksonville-captured-on-livestream
