Netflix has added to the pile of insane new shows once more with a series about Cleopatra as a black woman. The Egyptian government got angry and has stated that she was light skinned. Historical falsification is once more a hot topic.
After Pell’s exoneration, he was made a cardinal and his star seemed to be shining. He would end up partaking in 2 conclaves. A decade later he was even appointed to Pope Francis’ council of cardinal advisers and put in charge of economic reforms.
Cardinal Pell received a Catholic funeral attended by 30 bishops, hundreds of priests, the opposition leader and a former prime minister. But he was denied a state funeral by the Labour authorities even though that’s the norm for important public figures. Apparently it would be too destressing for victims according to premier of Victoria Daniel Andrews. Even though Pell has been cleared of false accusations off abuse and of claims that his Melbourne response did not report abusers when it in fact did. It seems especially hypocritical since Andrews has so far still not made an apology to victims of abuse in Victoria’s state schools despite a motion requestion that.

Sam Harris was the New Atheist who was willing to acknowledge facts over a partisan narrative. When fellow atheist Mark Riebling wrote a detailed historical book about Pope Pius XII, which pointed out how it was silly to call him Hitler’s pope even though it is indisputable that he was involved in several plots to kill Hitler, Harris supported the book. He admitted he had been wrong to support (the KGB inspired) attacks on the pope. Facts over doctrine. Such beautiful times.
But just like getting rich, getting sex is a competition that includes many losers.
