FBI interviewed individuals who accuse Amy Coney Barrett faith group of abuse

Amy Comy Barrett

The FBI has interviewed several individuals who have alleged they were abused by members of the People of Praise (PoP), a secretive Christian sect that counts conservative supreme court justice Amy Coney Barrett as a lifelong member, according to sources familiar with the matter.

The individuals were contacted following a years-long effort by a group called PoP Survivors, who have called for the South Bend-based sect to be investigated for leaders’ handling of sexual abuse allegations. The body, which has 54 members, has alleged that abuse claims were routinely mishandled or covered up for decades in order to protect the close-knit faith group.

It is not clear whether the FBI has launched a formal investigation into the PoP.

Feds say Liberty University created 'fear of reprisal' for sexual violence survivors

Liberty U

Liberty University, one of the most prominent Christian colleges in the country, created a culture where members of its campus community were fearful of reporting sexual violence, according to a preliminary report from the U.S. Department of Education obtained by USA TODAY.

“Victims of sexual assault felt dissuaded by Liberty administration’s reputation for punishing sexual assault survivors rather than helping them,” federal investigators wrote in the May report

Liberty has faced increasing public pressure in recent years over policies that survivors say allow sexual violence to run unchecked. The preliminary report says that overlooked allegations of violence reached all the way to the top, including a former university president and a senior administrator.

He, She, They: The Pronoun Debate Will Likely Land at the Supreme Court

Pronojn debate will go to SCOTUSOnce again, a pitched battle in America’s culture wars is making its steady way to the U.S. Supreme Court. In this round, the emerging question is whether public school children have a right to choose names and pronouns affirming their gender identity, or whether parents’ right to manage the upbringing of their children overrides it.

Three separate federal appeals courts have already confronted the issue, which has left school administrators across the country having to pick between the wishes and needs of students on one hand, and the demands of parents that they be alerted to their children’s gender and pronoun preferences at school on the other.

Tim Wakefield dies at 57

Tim Wakefield, a former World Series champion pitcher with the Boston Red Sox, has died at the age of 57 after a battle with cancer.

Wakefield’s former team announced his death in a social media post on Sunday.

“Our hearts are broken with the loss of Tim Wakefield,” the team said in an X, the social media platform formerly known as Twitter, post.

“Wake embodied true goodness; a devoted husband, father, and teammate, beloved broadcaster, and the ultimate community leader,” the team added. “He gave so much to the game and all of Red Sox Nation. Our deepest love and thoughts are with Stacy, Trevor, Brianna, and the Wakefield family.”

Wakefield, who made his major league debut with the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1992, spent sixteen of his twenty major league seasons with Boston, compiling a 200-192 record and 4.41 earned runs average (ERA) in over 3,000 major league innings.



Jimmy Carter turns 99 at home with Rosalynn and other family as tributes come from around the world

Birthday Cake for Jimmy CarterJimmy Carter has always been a man of discipline and habit. But the former president broke routine Sunday, putting off his practice of quietly watching church services online to instead celebrate his 99th birthday with his wife, Rosalynn, and their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren in Plains.

The gathering took place in the same one-story structure where the Carters lived before he was first elected to the Georgia Senate in 1962. As tributes poured in from around the world, it was an opportunity for Carter’s family to honor his personal legacy.

“The remarkable piece to me and I think to my family is that while my grandparents have accomplished so much, they have really remained the same sort of South Georgia couple that lives in a 600-person village where they were born,” said grandson Jason Carter, who chairs the board at The Carter Center, which his grandparents founded in 1982 after leaving the White House a year earlier.

TVNL Comment:  Happy Happy Birthday, President Carter.  You're an amazing man who has done so much for humanity.
