Rev. Dhiloraj Canagasabey was writing after the government impeached Chief Justice Shirani Bandaranayake over allegations of financial and official misconduct. She denies the allegations and her removal was pronounced unlawful by the courts and condemned by the opposition.In a pastoral letter sent around the small island nation’s Anglican community, Canagasabey said he wrote “with a heavy heart” about the state of governance in Sri Lanka and added that the church should not stay silent.“Such silence will be dishonoring to our Lord and a betrayal of our identity as His people,” he wrote. “I wish to remind you that right from the day of Pentecost, the church has learned to say that ‘Jesus is Lord and not Caesar.’ Often this has led to suffering and persecution. The church must always be prepared for this eventuality.”The bishop said the church needs to repent for its times of silence and of complicity in injustice. He has therefore called for a Day of Lament on Feb. 3, a Time of Lament at the cathedral on Feb. 4 and for the church to use Lent as a time to reflect on “what it means to live as a faithful disciple-community of Jesus in the context of our nation today.”The Church of Ceylon is the Anglican Church in Sri Lanka. It is extra-provincial to the archbishop of Canterbury.Read the full letter below.Pastoral Letter 01/2013My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,I write this pastoral letter to you as your Bishop as we approach the 65th anniversary of our national independence. It is with a heavy heart that I write it, the reason being that in the past few days we have seen the complete collapse of the rule of law in our nation. We no longer appear to be a constitutional democracy.The rule of law means that we as a nation are governed by a system of laws to which the lawmakers themselves are subject. This is a way of ensuring that power is not concentrated in the hands of one person (or group of persons) and exercised arbitrarily. The breakdown of such accountability is a process that has been building up for the past several years. It has now climaxed in the recent events that have seen both the Executive and the Legislature disregarding the provisions of the very Constitution which they swore to uphold and defend, giving the appearance of a country ruled on the principle that “Might is Right”The numerous warnings that the Church, other religious organizations and civil society bodies repeatedly issued have been ignored. There is currently a climate of fear and helplessness, where people remain silent rather than speak out against rampant injustice, intimidation, violence and falsehoods.We as a Christian Church cannot remain silent in this situation. Such silence will be dishonouring to our Lord and a betrayal of our identity as His people. I wish to remind you that right from the day of Pentecost, the Church has learnt to say that ‘Jesus is Lord and not Caesar’. Often this has led to suffering and persecution. The Church must always be prepared for this eventuality.There are many examples in the Bible and Christian history of persons who have refused to follow orders when they have contradicted God’s moral law. Even in the Old Testament, Kings were expected to rule under a law which they themselves did not make and to which they were accountable (Deuteronomy 18; Psalms 72, etc.). Where rulers violated the law, God challenged them through prophetic men and women chosen and sent by him. The Church is called to be such a prophetic presence and voice in our local communities, our places of work, our schools and in the wider society.This is a time for us as a Church to take an honest look at ourselves, where we have shamelessly compromised our loyalty to God. We need to repent of ways in which we, as individuals as well as collectively, have;been silent when we should have spokenallowed ourselves (thoughtlessly or out of fear) to be used by those in authority to speak lies or commit wrong and unjust actsconsciously received benefits for ourselves through acts of injustice committed against othersI as your Bishop, call the Church to a period of lament together for the terrible state of our nation today, and repentance for our failing as a Church to “love mercy, to seek justice and to walk humbly with the Lord” (Micah 6:8).I therefore propose that(a)  Sunday 3rd February 2013 be observed in all parishes within our Diocese as a Day of Lament. All services should have an extended time of silence, prayer and intercessions, to grieve over the state of our country today. Please encourage all parishioners to wear white and to fast wherever possible.(b)  We as a diocese will congregate on 4th February 2013 at 9am, dressed in white, or a service to continue our Time of Lament. Those who are unable to be present at the Cathedral for this service are encouraged to gather in their own churches at this time.(c)  I further propose that all parishes in our Diocese have a series of Bible studies, reflections and discussions during Lent, which is traditionally a period of self-examination and penitence, to reflect on what it means to live as a faithful disciple-community of Jesus in the context of our nation today.I thank God for the calling he has given us to be faithful to Him. When others may be controlled by fear and helplessness, we must remember that our Lord who was crucified and suffered death was raised to new life offering hope to all.In the words of St. Paul, “Therefore my brethren stand firm and immovable, and work for the Lord always; work without limit since you know that in the Lord, your labour cannot be in vain”(1 Corinthians 15:58)With Prayers and Christian Greetings!The Rt. Revd Dhiloraj CanagasabeyBishop of Colombo Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA last_img read more

Ella anunció su determinación de luchar contra la deportación con la ayuda del Rdo. Luis Barrios (que está hablando), de políticos locales y de miembros de la comunidad. Foto de Radhames Morales/iglesia[Episcopal News Service] Amanda Morales Guerra podría ser arrancada de las vidas de sus hijos y devuelta al violento país del que huyó hace 14 años. El auténtico temor llevó a Morales, guatemalteca de 33 años en riesgo de deportación por entrar y vivir ilegalmente en Estados Unidos, a buscar santuario en la iglesia episcopal Santa Cruz [Holyrood Episcopal Church]  en el barrio de Washington Heights en el norte de Manhattan. Sus tres hijos nacieron en Estados Unidos y son, por consiguiente, ciudadanos estadounidenses.Desde que la familia Morales llegó a la iglesia, feligreses, vecinos de varias denominaciones religiosas y políticos se han unido a ella en solidaridad, atendiendo a las necesidades físicas, emocionales y espirituales de su familia.El 21 de agosto, sus defensores subieron también las gradas del edificio federal Jacob Javits, en el centro de Manhattan, para presentarle al tribunal de inmigración dos peticiones: una solicitud de que suspenda la expulsión y que reactive una solicitud de asilo que ella había presentado anteriormente, dijo el Rdo. Luis Barrios, sacerdote de la iglesia [de la] Santa Cruz. En una pequeña victoria para la familia Morales, el tribunal aceptó revisar su apelación y anunciar un dictamen después de 90 días, dijo Barrios.Una vigilia de oración interconfesional se ha programado para las 7 P.M. del 28 de agosto en el exterior de la iglesia Santa Cruz. “No creo que Dios nos creara para sufrir, de manera que debemos corregir este error”, dijo Barrios, que también es psicólogo forense y profesor de estudios latinos en la Universidad de la Ciudad de Nueva York (CUNY). “Voy a orar para que Dios me ayude a corregir esta injusticia de la sociedad”.Morales huyó de  Guatemala en 2004 porque la MS-13 —una banda internacional conocida por practicar secuestros, así como [incurrir en] tráfico de drogas, armas y personas— le hizo violentas amenazas a ella y a su familia. Estados Unidos concede asilo a personas que huyen de la persecución por razones de raza, religión, nacionalidad, pertenencia a un grupo social o por sus opiniones políticas en sus países de origen, según el Servicio de Ciudadanía e Inmigración de EE.UU.“La MS-13: esto es el crimen organizado, luego ¿cómo pueden devolver a esta mujer para allí? Y como mujer, es un problema doble; porque existe el problema de ser violada”, dijo Barrios. “Es una situación muy traumática para esta joven mujer y sus hijos. Veo su ansiedad y se me turba el sueño. Los niños están empezando a mostrar esta ansiedad de que su madre desaparezca”.Amanda Morales Guerra, natural de Guatemala y madre de tres hijos que son ciudadanos de EE.UU., buscó santuario, para eludir la deportación, en la iglesia episcopal Santa Cruz en el norte de Manhattan donde el Rdo. Luis Barrios es el sacerdote. Foto de Radhames Morales/iglesia .Las autoridades tuvieron conocimiento de su condición de indocumentada en 2014 —cuando ella no pudo mostrar una licencia de conducción luego de un accidente de tránsito— y alertaron a los agentes de inmigración. Desde entonces, Morales, que trabajaba en una fábrica que hace cuerdas para violoncelos, se ha presentado regularmente en una oficina de inmigración a citas concertadas, explicó Barrios. Ella paga impuestos y no tiene antecedentes penales, de manera que la deportación era de escasa prioridad hasta que el gobierno de Donald Trump comenzó a exigir una aplicación más estricta.La Agencia Federal de Inmigración y Aduana (ICE por su sigla en inglés) llevó a cabo cerca de un 40 por ciento más de arrestos con fines de expulsión en los primeros 100 días del gobierno de Trump que en el mismo período del año pasado, según la ICE. Eso significa que los agentes de deportación arrestaron administrativamente a 41.318 individuos por cargos de inmigración civil, en comparación con 30.028 personas arrestadas en el mismo tiempo en 2016. Los arrestos administrativos los practica un agente del gobierno, en este caso un agente de la ICE, sin necesidad de una orden que haya sido revisada y autorizada por un juez. Se trata de una orden de expulsión no penal.“A los agentes y funcionarios de la ICE les han dado claras instrucciones de concentrarse en amenazas al orden público y a la seguridad nacional, lo cual ha dado lugar a un aumento sustancial en los arrestos de extranjeros delincuentes convictos. Sin embargo, cuando encontramos a otras personas que se encuentran en el país ilegalmente, cumplimos con nuestro deber jurado y aplicamos la ley”, dijo Thomas Homan, director interino de la ICE en  un artículo sobre los primeros 100 días en la página web de la ICE.Aun así, las iglesias, las escuelas y los hospitales hace tiempo que se consideran “áreas sensibles” en que las autoridades usualmente no entran.Las iglesias de la Diócesis de Nueva York están en libertad de tomar sus propias decisiones respecto a lo que significa el santuario y la manera en que lo pueden proporcionar, dijo el obispo Andrew ML Dietsche, en una declaración al día siguiente de que Morales hiciera pública [su decisión]. Él alentó a las parroquias a proteger a sus miembros y a brindarles ayuda legal y pastoral a las personas indocumentadas, si bien entendiendo los riesgos para la parroquia y para la familia [a quien se le ofrecía] santuario.“No obstante, en el cambiante panorama en que nos encontramos respecto a inmigración y a las deportaciones, creo que es una opción bien ponderada marcada por la integridad y la fe. El clero y el pueblo de la parroquia Santa Cruz tienen todo mi apoyo, el apoyo de la diócesis y esta familia en peligro cuenta con mis oraciones”, dijo Dietsche.La obispa Mary Glasspool, colega de Dietsche, compiló una lista de recursos para que las iglesias los usen cuando se encuentren con problemas de santuario.Después de que a Morales le dijeran que comprara un boleto de ida a Guatemala y que se presentara en su próxima cita de inmigración, ella dejó su trabajo y casi todas sus pertenencias en su casa de Massapequa, un caserío próximo a Amityville en Long Island. El Rdo. Juan Carlos Ruiz, cofundador de la Nueva Coalición Santuario de la Ciudad de Nueva York, ayudó a Morales a encontrar la iglesia . Creada en 2007, la coalición es una red interconfesional de congregaciones, organizaciones y personas que ayudan a familias y comunidades a resistir la detención y la deportación a fin de permanecer juntas. Barrios ha sido miembro de la coalición durante seis años.Amanda Morales Guerra, que se ve aquí orando en la iglesia episcopal , huyó de amenazas de violencia en Guatemala y ha estado viviendo en Estados Unidos sin autorización y se enfrenta a una deportación. Foto de Radhames Morales/iglesia .Mientras Morales ha estado encerrada dentro de los muros góticos de la iglesia, feligreses y personas de todas partes han ayudado a la familia, entre ellas miembros de otras iglesias, estudiantes universitarios, maestros de primaria, personal sanitario, estudiantes de seminario, miembros de una sinagoga e incluso personas que regularmente acuden al comedor de beneficencia .“Esta mujer octogenaria con un andador asiste al comedor de beneficencia que tenemos aquí, y ella vino y le dio a Amanda $5. Uno comparte lo que tiene. Amanda estuvo llorando mucho rato después de eso”, dijo Barrios.Miembros de la iglesia colegiata de Fort Washington en Washington Heights,  que es parte de la Iglesia Reformada de América, donó sacos de dormir para la familia Morales.“Reconocemos que abrir las puertas para ayudar a una familia es tarea de una comunidad”, dijo la Rda. Damaris Whittaker, ministra principal de Fort Washington. “Predicamos amar al prójimo y acoger al extranjero, y esta es nuestra oportunidad de vivir el evangelio. Todos tenemos que dar un paso al frente para cerciorarnos de que los ayudamos”.En tanto [muchas] iglesias a través de Estados Unidos brindan santuario a las personas discretamente, Morales decidió hacerlo público, no sólo para presionar al gobierno respecto a su causa, sino también para ponerle un rostro a la difícil situación de muchos inmigrantes como ella, que viven con el terror de que sus familias resulten divididas, dijo Barrios.El concepto de santuario trasciende los problemas de inmigración, añadió él.“Se trata de crear un espacio seguro para grupos que están marginados u oprimidos, tales como las personas de color y los grupos LGBT. Tenemos que responder”, afirmó.– Amy Sowder es corresponsal especial de Episcopal News Service, así como escritora y redactora radicada en Brooklyn, Nueva York.

This is rugby in it’s purest form, and it was based in America

first_imgThursday Jan 30, 2020 This is rugby in it’s purest form, and it was based in America We recently caught up with Thia Markson, the Director of this fascinating rugby documentary that was eight years in the making. Organized Mayhem The B.A.T.S. Rugby Story tells the story of a San Francisco rugby club in a way that is fairly unique to rugby documentaries.ADVERTISEMENTDigging into archive footage and interviewing players that represented the club, Markson tells the story over a span of 50 years, with first-hand accounts from those on the frontline.The Bay Area Touring Side (B.A.T.S.) players came to rugby after their college “gridiron” football days were over and they still wanted to be competitive and on a team.As they were the first Americans to tour to Europe since the 1924 Olympics they brought their “gridiron” style to Europe beginning in 1967.They went on to tour behind the Iron Curtain to Romania in 1972 and to Russia during the Cold War in 1978. They were also the first America rugby club to play in Italy, Germany, Tunisia and in Prague and where their “gridiron” style was on display“In 1976 they were the only American Club team to play and score against the famous Barbarians during a match in Boston and I included footage from the match in my full documentary,” said Markson. This game was the highlight of their playing days and a testament to the level of play the B.A.T.S. brought to the pitch.“As the daughter of the club’s athletic trainer rugby is in my DNA. As a Emmy nominated News Producer I have a background in production. The chance to combine these two worlds was an amazing experience. This was the story I have dreamed of telling and now it is done after eight years of production and a lifetime of rugby.ADVERTISEMENT“The full documentary is a beautiful tribute to the sport and culture of rugby that most Americans are just now discovering but the World has known about for years.”“It was quite a journey getting it done on a micro budget and eight years! Nothing like this done before by a woman about one of the best men’s rugby clubs in America. I was gifted with some amazing photos and film footage of the 1967 Human Be In event in San Francisco that interrupt the rugby match. I remember that day so well as thousands of hits of LSD rained down on us.“This full documentary brings what is so special about the sport to those who played and those who didn’t, camaraderie and sportsmanship unfamiliar in American sports.”Enjoy, and please share with a rugby fan who you think might enjoy this.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error documentary Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO ‘They don’t know what’s going to happen tomorrow,… 38 WEEKS AGO How do you perform when blind in one eye?… 48 WEEKS AGO Sexton’s half-time speech helped turn the… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Access to information threatened by decree creating new intelligence agency

Getting access to crime statistics, for example, continues to be impossible. This decree will make concealment even easier at a time when the government is confronting major economic difficulties which, to be resolved, ought to be the subject of informed debate.“Once again, the government prefers to blame supposed ‘enemy activity’ to which this decree refers without saying anything about it. What can one discuss publicly in Venezuela today without being accused yet again of ‘destabilizing the country’ or ‘endangering national security’? Can the government answer this question?”The National Association of Journalists (CDP) and National Union of Press Workers (SNTP) are among the critics of the CESPPA decree, which could only be rescinded if the Supreme Court of Justice (TSJ), Venezuela’s highest court, approved an appeal against it on the grounds of illegality or unconstitutionality.An appeal against the previous decree creating the CESNA has already been pending before the TSJ since 2010. The court could now reject this appeal on the grounds that the agency has been changed. It rarely rules in favour of appeals against the government.

The Single Bench of Justice Prathiba M Singh has further directed the University to devise a mechanism for issuance of online transcripts in respect of those students who need the same urgently and the same be set out in the affidavit. The order has come in a bunch of writ petitions moved by students who have not received their degree certificates from the Delhi University despite completing their graduation 2-3 years ago. These students are facing difficulty in applying for postgraduate programmes in foreign universities due to non-availability of the degree certificates.  In the previous order, the court had directed the University to set up a mechanism to streamline the process of providing digital degree certificates to the students. The University was also directed to submit an affidavit showing its progress in the present matter. In its affidavit, the Delhi University submitted that on an average about 12 persons have been engaged for the issuance of online degree certificates and 450 online degree certificates are being generated on a daily basis. On the issue of online transcripts and marksheets, the University expressed inability to extend the said facility to regular students. However, it said that the same can be provided to students seeking admissions in foreign universities and require online transcripts on an urgent basis. In light of these submissions, the court directed the University to submit an affidavit specifying timelines for transmission of mark sheets and degree certificates to Digilocker in a phased manner. Further data relating to the issuance of online degree certificates shall also be set out in the said affidavit. The court further said: ‘The online digital degree certificates, which are now been issued are monolingual i.e., only in English, unlike the previous degree certificates which were bilingual i.e., both in English and Hindi. It is ordered that both formats of the online degree certificates whether in monolingual format or bilingual format would be valid for the candidates to submit to their respective universities/authorities in foreign countries and the present order may be used for the said purpose.’ The Petitioners in the present matter are being represented by Mr Sarthak Maggon.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
