As Chicago and the country grapple with the fallout from George Floyd’s killing, Cardinal Blase Cupich said he plans to use this pivotal moment as a teaching tool for the Archdiocese of Chicago’s students in the fall. In an in-person interview at the rectory at Holy Name Cathedral, Cupich said the archdiocese’s goal is to have all Catholic school students participate in a discussion about Floyd’s killing and its aftermath     Correction*

Please be sure to tell the kiddies how Georgie stuck a gun into the belly of a pregnant black woman - - while his homeys rifled her house and stole her money. Also tell them how he overdosed on a lethal combination of fentanyl and methamphetamines - - while the police followed the proper procedure by preventing him from killing himself sooner by flailing around and causing immediate heart failure. And be sure to tell the kids not to be career criminals - - and live a completely useless life - - and die at age 46 without ever having accomplished a single positive thing. You'll be sure to tell them that - - won't you?

Are they going to mention that this death and so many similar deaths seem to happen ONLY in Democrat-run Communities? Didn't think so...

What are they going to discuss first, how stuffing multiple harmful substances into your body can turn you into a weak, blubbering idiot who tries to use counterfeit money to buy more substances? If I hadn't already written off the Catholic Church I would be offering them my opinion. How many George Floyd Boulevards are we going to see popping up in the burned out areas of democrat infested cities this year? Yes, this whole sad sequence of events is worthy of discussion but they will not dare discuss the real causes for fear of offending you-know-who.

They certainly don't want to teach about the death and destruction that occurs weekly in Chicago's neighborhoods. Let's point a finger somewhere else and ignore the problem in their backyard.

Yeh, and the Pope started this crap in the last week. As a Catholic and American, I would like to advise the Bishop (and the Pope) that calling America racist is a sin. 8th Commandment prohibits false witness. I don't care if you call that propaganda or 'education', it's false.

Cardinal Cupich should thoroughly research George Floyd's background before entering his biography into the curriculum of Chicago's Catholic schools, but then the Cardinal, himself, is compromised. Why doesn't the Cardinal introduce the story of a truly innocent victim, Jesus Christ.

Will they teach that he died of "Excited Delirium", a real medical condition triggered by adrenaline when on multiple illegal drugs, which caused a heart attack? Or will they teach the Ben Crump fictionalized version where none of the narrative lines up with any of the physical facts?

Here is a list of American Catholic men and women that the students ought to study Augustus Tolton - the first black priest in the United States Pierre Toussaint - a Haitian slave who became a wealthy philanthropist Henriette de Lille - founded the Sisters of the Holy Family in New Orleans Mary Lange - Founded the Oblate Sisters of Providence James Healy - first black Catholic bishop in the United States Patrick Healy - President of Georgetown Michael Healy - served in the Revenue Cutter Service and was the federal government's law officer in the Alaska territory and more currently Kobe Bryant - outstanding basketball player who overcame sin and will be remembered as a wonderful family man, good father and devout in his faith. Any of these people are much more interesting than a third rate thug.

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) on Monday said his party has “an embarrassingly small share of African American votes” and would like to change that, one day after he marched in a protest in Washington.

During the 2012 presidential campaign, former Vice President Joe Biden was a sharp critic of Republican nominee Mitt Romney’s work for investment firm Bain Capital, but now Bain executives are helping fuel Biden’s 2020 presidential bid. Bain co-founder Joshua Bekenstein and his wife Anita each donated $250,000 to Biden’s super PAC in April, Federal Election Commission (FEC) records showed. The donations accounted for the majority of the PAC’s fundraising in April, according to FEC records.

Chief Justice John Roberts sided with the court's liberals in rejecting a San Diego church's request for relief from Gov.

As states across the country begin the process of reopening, Americans continue to battle over the methods governors and local authorities have used to tackle the coronavirus pandemic. Unfortunately, many states and localities have set up arbitrary and, in many cases, absurd rules that do little more than aggravate citizens and almost nothing to stop the spread of the virus. For instance, some Americans have been pulled over and ticketed for merely driving, hardly an activity that is likely to spread disease. One Pennsylvania woman received a $200 ticket for violating Gov. Tom Wolf’s statewide stay-at-home order when she said she had merely gone on a drive to relieve her quarantine restlessness,

The fate of the 2020 general election could hang on two congressional districts, one in Maine and the other tucked away in Nebraska. Maine and Nebraska are the only two states in the country that split their Electoral College votes by congressional district while also rewarding the statewide victor, giving Democrats extra opportunities to pick up votes in otherwise Republican strongholds. And with the fall fight between President Trump and Joe Biden set to be a tight battle for the White House, every vote will matter on Nov. 3.
