Members of the Detroit school board want to re-name Benjamin Carson High School, due to Dr. Carson’s accomplished service as Housing and Urban Development Secretary under President Donald Trump.
In fact, the school board member leading the effort to strip Carson’s name from the school cited the Trump administration as the reason. The board reportedly voted 6-1 to begin the process of deleting the famed neurosurgeon’s local legacy, but it’s not official yet, and it’s possible that the Carson school could still be saved.
Possible but not likely.
The Detroit News reports on the crisis: “Board member LaMar Lemmons had pushed to rename Carson school, which is named after the Housing and Urban Development secretary and former Republican presidential candidate who graduated from the district. Lemmons cited the neurosurgeon’s name being added when the district was under an emergency financial manager, saying some residents objected to Carson representing the city. Residents “don’t support the (Trump) administration,” he said.” Detroit News passage ends
So, let’s get this straight.
Dr. Ben Carson is a black man who became a history-making doctor, a presidential candidate, and a successful HUD Secretary, but politically-motivated school board members don’t think Carson’s name should adorn a school building in the crime-ridden city of Detroit, where educational scarcity is reaching crisis levels?
Meanwhile, Malcolm X Shabazz High School in Newark, named for the Nation of Islam figurehead of the 1960’s, is just fine.
Welcome to America in 2018. Partisan rancor and disrespect for history.
DC Catholic Archbishop to Give Joe Biden Communion Despite Radical Pro-Abortion Views
Supporting abortion is a mortal sin.
Wilton Gregory, the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Washington DC, announced that he would not prevent Democrat Joe Biden from receiving communion at Catholic churches, regardless of the Democrat’s uncompromising support of abortion.
“The kind of relationship that I hope we will have is a conversational relationship where we can discover areas where we can cooperate that reflect the social teachings of the church, knowing full well that there are some areas where we won’t agree,” Gregory said. “They are areas where the church’s position is very clear,” said the bishop, who is the first African-American cardinal in the history of the church. Gregory was speaking to the Catholic News Service on November 24th.
“I hope it’s a real dialogue, because I think that’s the mantra of Pope Francis — that we should be a church in dialogue, even with those with whom we have some serious disagreements,” Gregory continued.
“It’s not a matter of confusion,” said Gregory. “On my part, it’s a matter of the responsibility that I have as the archbishop to be engaged and to be in dialogue with him, even in those areas where we obviously have some differences.”
Catholic clergy and laity have debated the premise of allowing pro-abortion and pro-homosexuality politicians to receive communion for years, with the issue often dividing more conservative and liberal members of the church.
Wilton Gregory was made into a Catholic cardinal this week in a ceremony in the Vatican. He’s been described as one of the most liberal senior prelates in the American church hierarchy, banning parishioners from carrying concealed weapons as Archbishop of Atlanta in 2014. He frequently assailed President Donald Trump, arguing that pro-American immigration policy deviated from the principles of the Catholic religion.
