You guys are awesome! (Future President Bernie Sanders Group)

The difference in civility from GDP and other groups is noticeable here. The topics are within the realm of the group, and disagreements are handled fairly. It's great to come to a group fighting for something, than so much out there that is just trying to tear others down (Fox, Facebook, etc. Can't browse ten minutes without encountering some red baiting or tripping over a pile of rainbows from a unicorn)

Keep up the good work, and onward to South Carolina!

Vatican panel kicks off meeting on sexual abuse by watching 'Spotlight'

A Vatican commission on clerical sex abuse gathered Thursday for a private screening of “Spotlight,” the Oscar-nominated film about abuse by Boston priests, even as Pope Francis came under fire for failing to act on the crisis.

The extraordinary screening was held on the eve of a three-day meeting by the commission, and was shown in the same church residence in central Rome where Francis — then Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio — stayed before his election as pope in 2013.


“Francis has said phenomenally damaging and painful things about survivors,” said Saunders. “People in Chile now see the commission as a laughingstock, and I cannot pretend the commission means anything unless he sacks Barros.”


“The last meeting in October was a non-event. I was told that Rome was not built in a day, but the problem is that it takes seconds to rape a child,” he said.


The Vatican is not showing that it's serious about this matter, like everything else it's words sound sweet, until you realize they are just sitting on their throne of gold.
