01) Sinead O’Connor renounces Catholicism and converts to Islam

“IRISH singer Sinead O’Connor has revealed she has renounced Catholicism and converted to Islam, taking the new name “Shuhada’ Davitt”.

O’Connor, who last year changed her legal name to Magda Davitt, said she had ditched the Catholic Church for good in a message to fans on Twitter.

The 51-year-old was previously ordained a priest by a breakaway Catholic sect, the Irish Orthodox Catholic and Apostolic Church, in the late 1990s.

But in a series of recent tweets, the Dubliner revealed she had swapped the clerical collar for the hijab and become a Muslim.

“This is to announce that I am proud to have become a Muslim,” she wrote.

“This is the natural conclusion of any intelligent theologian’s journey. All scripture study leads to Islam. Which makes all other scriptures redundant.

“I will be given (another) new name. It will be Shuhada’.”

01) Study: Authoritarianism mostly explains why some religious people report less independence of intellect

“People who are highly religious or spiritual are slightly less humble about their intellectual abilities on average, according to new research. But the study indicates that authoritarianism is the key factor.

The findings were published in the scientific journal
Personality and Individual Differences.

“Intellectual humility is a form of humility related to the way people think. It can be defined as a nonthreatening awareness of one’s intellectual fallibility,” said study author Elizabeth Krumrei-Mancuso, an associate professor of psychology at Pepperdine University.

“I’m interested in this topic because it is foundational for gaining new knowledge and understanding. That is, people who realize and accept that their knowledge is not perfect will be more likely to discover biases and errors in their thinking, consider other viewpoints, respect those who disagree, and so forth.”

“As such, intellectual humility benefits individuals as well as relationships and society. I was further interested in the links between intellectual humility and religion, given that religion is a pervasive aspect of culture that has been closely tied to the way people view and treat others,” Krumrei-Mancuso told PsyPost.

“It initially seemed that a number of religious and spiritual variables predicted less intellectual humility over time, but these links mostly disappeared when factoring in the construct of right-wing authoritarianism,” Krumrei-Mancuso explained.

“This suggests that religion and spirituality are mostly unrelated to intellectual humility, but that certain sociopolitical attitudes about authority are associated with decreases in intellectual humility. These sociopolitical attitudes include a strong emphasis on obedience to leaders, intolerance of deviance, and conformity to norms.”

Right-wing authoritarianism describes the tendency to submit to political authority and be hostile towards other groups The right-wing authoritarianism scale asks participants how much they agree with statements such as: “It’s always better to trust the judgment of the proper authorities in government and religion than to listen to the noisy rabble-rousers in our society who are trying to create doubts in people’s minds.”

Son of a Preacher Man – Tom Goss…

01) Son of a Preacher Man – Tom Goss


“So many people are hurt in the name of love. Here’s to another way.

Lyrics:
Billy Ray was a preacher’s son and when his daddy would visit he’d come along.
And when they started talkin’, that’s when Billy would take me walkin’.
Out through the back yard we’d go walkin’.
Then he’d look into my eyes, Lord knows it was my surprise.

The only one who could ever reach me was the son of a preacher man. The only one who could ever teach me was the son of a preacher man. Yes he was, he was, yes he was.

Bein’ good isn’t always easy, no matter how hard I try. When he’d start sweet-talkin’ to me, he’d kiss and tell me “Everything is all right”. Kiss and tell me “Everything is all right”. Can I get away again tonight?

The only one who could ever reach me, was the son of a preacher man. The only boy who could ever teach me, was the son of a preacher man. Yes he was, he was, yes he was.

Ooh, how I remember that look in his eyes. Stealin’ kisses from me on the sly. Takin’ time to make time. Tellin’ me he’s all mine. Learnin’ from each other’s knowin’, look at us here how much we’re growing.

The only one who could ever reach me was the son of a preacher man. The only one who could ever teach me was the son of a preacher man.

The only one who could ever reach me was the son of a preacher man. The only one who could ever teach me was the son of a preacher man.
The only one…”

01) Mitch McConnel’s Food Thrown Out By Protestor


“Mitch McConnell was confronted during dinner with his wife.

According to WLKY, McConnell, a Republican representing Kentucky, was dining at Havana Rumba in Louisville, Kentucky, with his wife, Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, when a group of men approached the couple.

‘Why don’t you get out of here? Why don’t you leave the entire country?’ one of the men yelled at McConnell, WLKY reported.

‘The leader and Secretary Chao enjoyed their meal in Louisville last night and they appreciate those who spoke up against incivility,’ said Stephanie Penn, McConnell’s press secretary, in a statement to CNN. ‘They hope other patrons weren’t too inconvenienced by left-wing tantrums. As the leader often says, the Senate will not be intimidated by the antics of far-left protesters.

Betelgeuse is Getting Ready to Go Supernova…

01) Betelgeuse is Getting Ready to Go Supernova


“The red supergiant star Betelgeuse is getting ready to go supernova, and when it does Earth will have a front-row seat. The explosion will be so bright that Earth will briefly seem to have two suns in the sky.

The star is located in the Orion constellation, about 640 light-years away from Earth. It’s one of the brightest and biggest stars in our galactic neighborhood – if you dropped it in our Solar System, it would extend all the way out to Jupiter, leaving Earth completely engulfed.

Someday soon (astronomically speaking), it will run out of fuel, collapse under its own weight, and then rebound in a spectacular supernova explosion. When this happens, Betelgeuse will brighten enormously for a few weeks or months, perhaps as bright as the full moon and visible in broad daylight.

When will it happen? Probably not in our lifetimes. But, in fact, no one really knows. It could be tomorrow or a million years in the future.”
