How Long for Clinton? (Politics)
As expected, Hillary Clinton is leading in the polls for the United States election, and is poised to become party nominee; however, some things are still uncertain. Take for instance: the Trump factor. However, we’ll be talking about some political hacks first. What does that mean? The recent Brexit vote, for example, had a lot of older voters. Older voters have lived longer under the EU reign and feel it has been a hardship. Whereas, younger voters do not understand how they feel because they have not lived long enough to see it. It is thought that this difference in the demographics is the reason that the polls turned out the way they did, and Britain left the EU.
This seems to not be a habit of just the British Isles though, but all over. In the US, it is expected that the majority of voters are older, and far outnumber the younger crowd, meaning that their decision ways more on the nation. It is expected that because of this bias in the polls, Trump still has a good chance of winning, even though many are getting steamed at him for his racist and sexist inclines. Because of this shift, it could very well effect how the election turns out. You can read more on this subject in the article below.
Pope Francis on Gays (Culture)
Whether you’re a member of one of the largest belief systems in the world or not, you still have to have some respect for Pope Francis. You don’t just get to be the pope, you got to earn it. That’s why when Pope Francis says that Christians who had previously harassed gay people, should apologize, you should probably listen. After a trip to Armenia, he said on two different occasions, that the church (he later clarified that he meant all Christians) must apologize for insulting not only gay people, but child labors, and mistreated woman. Even if you did not directly take part in their shaming, he said, you must still apologize on the behalf of those who continue to do these horrible things. He said to the effect, that Christians must apologize for others, and exercise their ability to do so willingly, to help others. For more information, you can read the article below.
Pats Problems (Side Note)
Woman’s basketball coach, Pat Summitt, has recently begun to have some problems. Her dementia has started to affect her life as a whole, and she has recently begun to prepare for the worst thing that could happen. Basketball has been very important to her through her entire life, and this horrendous condition is starting to tear her apart from the inside. She ended up leaving the sport after the 2011 season and only recently has word of her condition even got out into the world. She has been hiding it for all this time, from 2012 (end of the season) up to just a few days ago. If you want to support her, you can use the hashtag #prayforpat, on social media, to help her campaign.
