Re: Chicago Church, Father Paul and Jersey City

Clergy sex abuse on the rise again, and church leaders are ignoring why, sociologist says, The Catholic World Report:
Quote:
Denver, Colo., Nov 2, 2018 / 03:13 pm (CNA).- After years in decline, Catholic clergy sex abuse could be on the rise again, warns a professor-priest’s analysis of relevant data.

The professor’s report sees a rising trend in abuse, and argues that the evidence strongly suggests links between sexual abuse of minors and two factors: a disproportionate number of homosexual clergy, and the manifestation of a “homosexual subculture” in seminaries.

“The thing we’ve been told about the sex abuse is that it is somehow very rare and declined to almost nothing today is really not true,” Father D. Paul Sullins, a Catholic priest and retired Catholic University of America sociology professor, told a Nov. 2 press conference.

“I found that clergy sex abuse did drop to almost nothing after 2002, but then it started to creep up,” he continued. “It’s been increasing. And there are signs that the bishops or the dioceses have gotten complacent about that.”

“It’s not at the great heights that it was in the mid-1970s, but it’s rising. And it’s headed in that direction,” he added.

Clergy sex abuse incidence is today about one third as common as in the late 1980s. While sex abuse by clergy is “much lower” than 30 years ago, it has not declined “as much as is commonly thought.” Most of the decline since the 1990s is consistent with “a similar general decline in child sex abuse in America since that time,” Sullins’ report said.

Wait until they come up with a scheme to monitize the speed bumps in order to pay for the public schools.

The Hamilton Park Neighborhood Association was pretty open when I lived there several years ago. I walked into a meeting one evening, volunteered for a few things and ended up as a Trustee for a few years. Meetings were held at regular intervals and open to the public. I visited there a year or so ago to talk about the Bergen Arches Project and it seemed pretty much the same. Some familiar old faces, a bunch of new faces, but open and welcoming.

Green Villain x Writer's Bench Host Block Party In Jersey City
#14

Home away from home


Jersey City’s Green Villain is bringing back the funk with a block party featuring live painting, music, vendors and local food trucks this July 21 (rain date, July 22). Following up on their 2016 twelve hour art and music festival they are partnering with Forest City to give something back to the community. Join them at the former Pep Boys/Demolition Exhibition and relive the glory from three years ago.

Green Villain was born inside the historic Clorox Bleach factory in 2009 and started producing murals around the city in 2013 working with local and regional artists. In late 2014 they first painted the rear of Pep Boys in Metro Plaza right across from Shop Rite. The site was acquired by Forest City and G&S Investors early in 2015 and they contacted Green Villain about the mural project underway. That led to the Demolition Exhibition in the summer 2015. The party lasted a week, 100 artists painted 30,000 square feet of murals on the inside and outside walls of the building. Thousands of people of all ages and from all walks of life took it in–looking at the art, chatting, skating, taking flicks, having a blast. Google Street View captured the site right before the building was demolished.

Now Green Villain is doing it in 2018 with the newest installment of placemaking: a local block party for the community of Jersey City. Fifteen artists will each paint an 8’ by 25’ mural on Saturday, July 21 (rain date, Sunday, July 22). DJs from the Open Crates vinyl collective as well as the extended GV network will start at noon and continue until 6 PM. IncrediBalls Food Truck, Park & Munch and Luigi’s Ice Cream will keep hunger pangs at bay. This event is not to be missed.

Featured Artists: Skeme, Stash, Wane, Ntel, Yoder, Mustart, Curve, SP One, Host18, Queen Andrea, Rath, Mecro, Mone, 4Sakn & Wen

And it is built on public land in Central Park given to it by the City 1871. What's the value of that land? Surely it covers public access to the collections within.

Sure does. It's those 1%ers who are on the board. They take public money and then charge citizens to pay to see the art they bought with that public money. It's a great scam.

Michael Gross wrote a great book about the scamps and scaliwags that founded the Met: Rogues’ Gallery: The Secret History of the Moguls and the Money That Made the Metropolitan Museum. I've reviewed the book here, Sharks in Formaldehyde: New York’s Met and the People Who Made It.

Ah, if we're using the "1 person rule" then I have a laundry list of things to outlaw, let's start with comic book movies and work our way down. I'm certain they must have killed someone, they make me want to kill myself.


Surely there's at least one fatality attributable to the nonsense that appears on JC List. I realize that what is nonsense to one may be the gospel truth to another, so I'm not making any suggestions as to just which pile of nonsense is most fatal. But surely someone somewhere in JC has given up the ghost because they just couldn't stand JC list but had become addicted and couldn't pull away. So they took the only way out, killing themselves or taking it out on someone else in any of a variety of ways.

Re: Just say 'no' to 'millionaires' marina on the south side of Liberty State Park

Suntex is a business; they need to make money. It's fine for them to propose this marina.

But it's NOT fine for the Christie administration to green-light it. That's pure spite and vengeance from mean-spirited looters of public coffers who pretend to be a public servants.

The park is gorgeous. And they need to allocate the funds needed to open the rest of it to the public.

The marina at the north end is all the marina the park needs. Heck, it serviced racing boats several years ago (Sept 2013), and that's fine.

Leave the southern end of the park for we-the-99%-of-the-people.

Land in the middle is not a replacement for the waterfront. When I launch my kayak there I'm always astonished at the number of people who drive there and just sit in their cars taking in the view. Not my style, but it's PUBLIC ACCESS to a PUBLIC ASSET.

This has a lot in common with Trump removing protections for western lands. Taking public assets and giving them away to private interests.


YES! And I'm not sure that the birds that nest south of the marina would welcome all the boat traffic.
