Timbuktu, directed by Abderrahmane Sissako, a filmmaker from Mauritania, tells the story of how local people resist the arrival of extremists who want to restrict women's liberty and to outlaw music and football.

How Wikipedia Can Turn Fiction Into Fact

Last edited 26th May 2014

Entire fictional scenarios can be created that are difficult to confute because they appear to be well-sourced via constant repetition. Fictional histories far more sophisticated than the painting depicted above could discredit a candidate for public office or libel a group of people. Like photoshopping—it was always there in principle, but never so easy. If the Wikipedians themselves don’t take this more seriously, the rest of us had better. My own practice is never to use Wikipedia as a source for factual information without checking it with another, non-crowd source. Here is a story about some other questionable Wikipedia entries.

Vatican Looks into Possibility of Establishing a Secretariat of Communications

Last edited 4th May 2014

As part of the plans to reorganise the Curia, the Vatican is looking into the possibility of introducing a Secretariat of Communications, which will be a central coordination body along the lines of the Vatican structure for the Economy. All communications sections (which are currently split into various Curia offices: press office, Pontifical Council for Social Communications, CTV, Vatican radio, L’Osservatore Romano) would be centralised and grouped into one single entity.

Noah: A Post-Modern Midrash

Last edited 22nd April 2014

Darren Aronofsky’s cinematic re-telling of the story of Noah has certainly stirred people up. While quite a few reviewers, both religious and non-religious, have given the film high marks, many Christians, both Evangelical and Catholic, have registered a far less than enthusiastic reaction. One prominent Catholic blogger and movie reviewer opined that “Noah” is “embarrassingly awful” and “the stupidest film in years.”

Canonisation of John Paul II & John XXIII – LIVE on Xt3.com

Last edited 10th April 2014

"Blessed John XXIII was a bit of a 'country priest,' a priest who loved each of the faithful and knew how to care for them; he did this as a bishop and as a nuncio... As for Blessed John Paul II, I think of him as 'the great missionary of the church, because he was a man who proclaimed the Gospel everywhere." – Pope Francis
