By David Harsanyi, Patriot Post - Whoopi Goldberg, suspended for two weeks by ABC for her comments about the Holocaust, had an opinion. She, like many people these days, is unable to properly contextualize history or see it outside her own contemporary leftist worldview. But Goldberg is a talk show host with no power. No one is really “hurt” by her words. She should be able to express herself without fear of losing her job. As should Joe Rogan and Ilya Shapiro... That said, the slap on the wrist, probably intended to keep Goldberg out of the public eye to weather the storm, is also performative.
By Fr. Jeffrey Kirby, Complicit Clergy - If Christians would boldly proclaim the Faith in their daily lives, refusing to be silenced for fear of persecution, the world would be a different place.

By Gayle Somers, Catholic Exchange - St. Luke tells us that one day, Jesus was teaching an enormous crowd of people by “the Lake of Gennesaret,” also called the Sea of Galilee. He saw two empty boats, and He decided that it would be easier to address the people from one of them, if it were “put out a short distance from the shore.” He chose the boat that belonged to Simon, one the fishermen who were cleaning their nets.
