What kind of pretzel logic is this?

Canada politician says crucifix 'not religious symbol

The newly-elected premier of Quebec in Canada has raised eyebrows by saying a crucifix hanging in the provincial legislature is not a religious symbol.

François Legault's remarks come despite his government plan to ban civil servants from wearing items of clothing such as hijabs and the Jewish skullcap.

The policy has been widely criticised as it targets minority groups.

A 2008 report said the crucifix which has been hanging in the legislature since 1936 should be removed.

But the Quebec government refused to implement its findings.

The debate over religious symbols in Quebec public life has been a perennial issue for the past decade.

In 2014, the Parti Quebecois proposed a so-called Charter of Values bill, that would ban all public servants from wearing "ostentatious" religious symbols or clothing.

Many decried the bill as Islamophobic and anti-Semitic, but proponents said the law was meant to promote secularism and separate Church and state.

Since winning a majority in last week's election, Mr Legault's Coalition Avenir Québec party has renewed the call to ban all religious symbols, and has even said he would consider firing teachers who refused to comply with the ban.

Can someone explain this to me?

I am looking at aftermarket stereos for a car we are considering buying. Why in the hell does a stereo need either a remote control or phone control? I mean the controls are right there, at arms reach.

Cardinal Wuerl gone

https://www.wpxi.com/news/top-stories/pope-accepts-resignation-of-pittsburgh-native-cardinal-wuerl/851753287

VATICAN CITY - Pope Francis has accepted the resignation of Washington Cardinal Donald Wuerl, who is implicated in the sex abuse cover-up scandal.

A Vatican statement Friday said Francis had accepted Wuerl's resignation, but named no replacement; Wuerl's office said he had been asked to stay on in a temporary capacity until a new archbishop is found.

Wuerl, the former bishop of the Diocese of Pittsburgh, has been scrutinized since the release of a grand jury report on child sex abuse by priests in six Pennsylvania dioceses.

Earlier today, our Holy Father, Pope Francis, accepted my resignation as Archbishop of Washington that I first offered almost three years ago. Read his beautiful letter and my statement here: https://t.co/iIoPrGgU86 — Cardinal Wuerl (@Cardinal_Wuerl) October 12, 2018
Wuerl, 77, was named nearly 200 times for his alleged involvement in the cover-up. He has not been charged with any wrongdoing.

Pittsburgh Bishop David Zubik released the following statement regarding the acceptance of Wuerl's resignation:

Cardinal Wuerl, who served the people of Pittsburgh for 18 years as our bishop, requested that Pope Francis allow him to step-down as Archbishop of Washington for the healing of the victims of abuse and their families and for the good of the Church. For as long as I have known Cardinal Wuerl, he has advocated for those within the church and beyond who need the opportunity for a better life. I pray that the acceptance of his resignation today by Pope Francis will continue to bring about healing in the hearts and lives of victims of abuse and all those in the Church.

uerl served as bishop for the Diocese of Pittsburgh from 1988 to 2006. After the August release of the grand jury report, calls for his resignation began.

Parishioners in the Pittsburgh area said they knew the moment was coming.

“Only God can judge him. We cannot judge him. Nobody can judge him,” Ann Reynolds, of Mount Washington, said. “His life from here on in is what he makes of it and what God has in store for him.”

In light of the grand jury report and a petition, Wuerl’s name was removed from North Catholic High School. His name had been added to the school in 2013 when it moved from Pittsburgh Troy Hill neighborhood to Cranberry Township.
