09 Feb 2024  |  washingtonpost.com
An Iranian asylum seeker took hostages on a train in the Vaud canton, Switzerland, and was later shot dead by police. The incident began when the train driver was forced to join the passengers, and the police were alerted by trapped individuals. Around 60 officers responded, closing off the area. Negotiations were conducted with a Farsi interpreter and through WhatsApp. The police stormed the train when the hostage-taker moved away from the hostages, using a stun grenade before fatally shooting him. The hostages were unharmed and received care. The motive is unclear, with no evidence pointing to terrorism.

Amid liberal revolt, Pope Francis signals openness to blessings for gay couples

02 Oct 2023  |  www.adn.com
In defiance of the Vatican's decree against celebrating same-sex unions, the German Catholic Church has been translating progressive Catholic frustrations into a revolt, with ordained priests blessing same-sex couples. Pope Francis has reprimanded Germany's Catholic leadership but also released a document suggesting openness to blessings for same-sex unions and further study of female priests. This comes as Catholic leaders gather at the Vatican for a summit on the faith's direction, with topics like the role of women, same-sex blessings, and a married priesthood on the agenda. The synod has raised hopes among progressives and fears among traditionalists. German churches have been progressive, with actions like inviting women to preach and backing blessings for same-sex unions. The German Catholic Church's wealth and influence are significant, as it funds seminary schools and parishes globally. The article also highlights individual cases, such as openly gay priest Wolfgang Rothe organizing blessings and Marianne Arndt preaching at Mass, challenging traditional Catholic doctrine.

While some advocate for culling, others push for better coexistence strategies, including protective measures for livestock. The debate remains heated, with political and social implications.
