Francis: Christians must apologize to gay people for marginalizing them

“I believe that the church not only must say it’s sorry … to this person that is gay that it has offended,” said the pope. “But it must say it’s sorry to the poor, also, to mistreated women, to children forced to work.”

“When I say the church: Christians,” Francis clarified. “The church is holy. We are the sinners.”

Orlando gay club shooter called 911, pledging allegiance to ISIS – report

Omar Seddique Mateen, the man suspected of killing 50 people in an Orlando gay club, called police before the attack, swearing allegiance to ISIS, NBC news reported citing law enforcement sources

 

People,

I have been SCREAMING about the Fraud Against Terror for a lot of years. The United States of America has been FOR terrorism for a long, long, long time before it pretended to be against it. Official US policy has been to coddle terrorists in Libya and in Syria TO THIS DAY.

These attacks will only grow and fester, as scheming monsters at the top of the US government see terrorism as a cash cow, the gift that keeps on giving. Every attack brings them exactly what they want: support for more war, and militarism, and arms sales, and suppression of dissent. Power. They get it. We lose it.

If you don’t understand by now that the foreign policy of the United States is not opposed to terrorism when that terrorism targets “enemy” regimes (Libya, Syria, Russia, Iran…), then you are sleepwalking.

I’m hearing a lot of bullshit today about Islam not being in any way involved with this incident.

Just the facts.

FBI director defends investigations of Orlando club killer

  1. They put him on a watch list after several complaints by co-workers that he was a terrorist.
  2. They investigated him twice and introduced him to “informants” the people who instigate terrorist attacks and provoke people into carrying out things they noramlly wouldn’t have without prodding.
  3. They inexplicably remove him from the watchlist and go let him buy all the guns he wants. So what’s the point of a watchlist if you’re not going to continue watching? They also had at least one of the Tsarnaev brothers on a  watchlist, and also removed him. Nothing has changed over at FBI.

The FBI spied on the terrorist who massacred 49 people at an Orlando gay club for 10 months in 2013 and concluded that investigation with no suspicion of the horror to come, FBI Director James Comey said Monday.

Investigators seeking a motive for the Pulse nightclub massacre carried out by Omar Mateen, a 29-year-old U.S. citizen, had uncovered “strong indications of radicalization: and “potential inspiration by foreign terrorist organizations.”

Slow, textured, feminine, sensual, a bit self-indulgent, but it left me feeling something for a change. I feel less alone in the universe tonight.

Other viewers will note a definite shortage of exploding robots in this one.

I was interested in Carol when I heard it was by Patricia Highsmith, her second novel, The Price of Salt. Highsmith was very good at capturing the 1950s and the opportunists of the day. The recreation in Carol, as in The Two Faces of January, is captivating. It feels like a classic film, for the most part.

They hit the staring out of car windows a bit hard and that repetitive theme song too. So it felt a bit longer than it should have.

Carol is not a particularly uncommon story. It’s clear why the author chose to tell it. There is a feeling of dread that the director kept pressing…

This very French take on young love comes in at over three hours in length. The director was intransigent in his perfectionism and this is how he demanded the film be. At the end of the running, we learned that it was supposed to be divided into two chapters, but I don’t recall any actual chapter break / intermission on the DVD.

It’s probably best to break it after the first 90 minutes or so. The scenes are well acted and often very good, natural, but so many of them wouldn’t have made the cut in Hollywood. American audiences may not be so patient.

The film, of course, has extended raw sex scenes between the two girls. They may have ran a bit too long, but then so did the rest of the movie, and so proportionally they make sense.

It’s a very recognizable coming of age story with a likeable French girl Adele, a kindergarten teacher, who doesn’t really fit into the eccentric art world of Emma, the blue-haired seductress. They make a go of it, hiding their relationship as needed, but human weakness and temptation throw their ship toward the rocks.

The style is claustrophobic, nearly every shot a close-up of Adele. It’s always right up against her cheek, and we see every side of her imaginable. The production ran way long, snatching up footage for months after the initial production schedule had expired. This was a very good idea, something Kubrick would do. Time is the crucial ingredient that allowed film to progress beyond the mundane, beyond the script and the production schedules that seek to limit the possibities.

Neither actress would ever work with director Kechiche again. The film, though, won the Palme d’Or and launched their careers in a way they could never have hoped for. We don’t see such raw, powerful performances very often. So credit is due.

4/5
