British PM tells divided party: Don't play politics with my Brexit plan

British PM tells divided party: Don't play politics with my Brexit planBritain is due to leave the European Union on March 29, 2019, but the terms of the departure remain unclear. In an interview with the Sunday Times newspaper ahead of her party’s conference, May took aim at those who have scorned her “Chequers” Brexit proposals accusing them of “playing politics” with Britain’s future and undermining the national interest. “Unlike the prime minister I fought for this, I believe in it, I think it’s the right thing for our country and I think that what is happening now is, alas, not what people were promised in 2016.” May says her “Chequers” proposals are the only viable option, but EU leaders have said parts of them are unacceptable and many Conservative lawmakers have threatened to vote down a deal based on May’s blueprint.

US Church divided over claims that pope ignored sex abuse

US Church divided over claims that pope ignored sex abuseThe controversy over an alleged high-level cover-up of Church sex abuse in America has revealed a deep rift among US bishops that reflects both the damage done by the pedophilia scandals rocking the Vatican — and the country’s current political divisiveness. Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano, who was the Vatican envoy in Washington between 2011 and 2016, sparked a firestorm when he claimed last week that Pope Francis ignored his warnings in 2013 about alleged abuse by then prominent US cardinal Theodore McCarrick. In July, the pontiff accepted the resignation of McCarrick, now 88.
