Proof that God Hates Rudy Giuliani!

During yesterday’s Republican debate, Wolf Blitzer asked the pro-choice Rudy Giuliani about abortion. A Catholic bishop, Wolf said, had analogized Giuliani’s stance, which is that abortions are wrong but should be available to American women anyway, to Pontius Pilate opposing the execution of Jesus but still allowing it to happen. When a somewhat shocked Rudy tried to explain himself, lightening actually hit the building, cutting off Giuliani’s microphone. Everyone had a good laugh and Giuliani put forward a pretty good answer in the end, but RG should probably avoid golf courses, swimming pools, and summer rainstorms for a while. Somebody’s out to get him.

Elsewhere in Catholic news, a man jumped a security barrier and tried to board the popemobile while Benedict was riding in it. These are turbulent times for people of faith, surely.

DEMOCRACY DOES NOT EXIST...

without free and fair elections, a vigorous free press, and engaged citizens to reclaim power from those who abuse it.

In this election year unlike any other—against a backdrop of a pandemic, an economic crisis, racial reckoning, and so much daily bluster—Mother Jones' journalism is driven by one simple question: Will America move closer to, or further from, justice and equity in the years to come?

If you're able to, please join us in this mission with a donation today.
