Democratic vice-presidential nominee Tim Kaine has elicited a strong response from his bishop for his comments suggesting the Catholic church will eventually recognize same-sex marriage, and a prominent Catholic scholar is also disputing his words.
Giving the keynote address to a group of approximately 3,700 at the 20th Annual Human Rights Campaign National Dinner in Washington, D.C. Sunday, the U.S. Senator from Virginia expressed his "full, complete, unconditional support for marriage equality." Although he acknowledged his stance "is at odds with the current doctrine of the church that I still attend ... I think that's going to change, too."
Although the press frequently describes Kaine as a "devout" Roman Catholic, Mary Hasson, director of the Catholic Women's Forum at the Washington-based Ethics and Public Policy Center believes that is an adjective the media "particularly likes to attach to Catholic politicians who loudly disagree with the Church on matters of sexual morality." more >>

If Wells Fargo was focused on bank charges and interest rates rather than political hot button issues, perhaps they wouldn't have had to fire thousands of employees for ripping off customers and be liable for millions in fines.
In a recent press release, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau [CFPB] recounted that Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. will pay "the largest penalty the CFPB has ever imposed," $185 million, because thousands of Wells Fargo employees "covertly" opened "more than two million deposit and credit card accounts," transferring funds from consumers' authorized accounts without their knowledge or consent, often racking up fees or other charges."
The press release says the employees who engaged in this "widespread illegal practice" were "spurred by sales targets and compensation incentives." more >>
In defiance of nature and centuries of accepted wisdom, scientists from a leading university in the United Kingdom unveiled new research on Tuesday suggesting that in the distant future two men could come together to make a baby and eliminate the need for eggs from women.
Department of Biology & Biochemistry scientists at the University of Bath announced that they have developed a method of injecting mouse parthenogenotes with sperm that allows them to become healthy baby mice with a success rate of up to 24 percent.

Manny Pacquiao admits he was wrong to compare gay people to animals, but stands by his biblical beliefs concerning homosexuality.
When asked if he regretted his comments that landed him in hot water earlier this year, Pacquiao responded by saying he could have handled things differently.
Trey Pearson, the lead singer of alternative rock band Everyday Sunday and a formerly married father who came out to the world as gay in May, was axed from the lineup of a major Christian festival after several members of the event's production crew threatened a walk out if he was included.
The festival, called Joshua Fest, is an annual three-day event in Northern California described as a nonprofit "family friendly Christian music festival" that ministers to "young families and teens."
"We have something for everyone. From music that ranges from worship to hard core, to heartfelt workshops and open forum discussions about faith, pain, and hope. To workshops designed to strengthen your marriage," it explains. more >>
