Six of his victims, all women, were of Asian descent. The gunman had been a patron of at least two of the spas where the massacre took place; and in the aftermath of the shootings, he confessed, saying that he considered the women at the spas to be a sexual temptation he needed to eliminate because of his Christian faith.It is hard to know what to decry first in the toxic stew of racism, misogyny, religious violence, and gun culture. Most basic, perhaps, is the fact that the alleged killer bought his weapon just hours before the attacks began. The sale was entirely legal, showing yet again that standards for gun purchasing and ownership across our nation are far too lenient. Day after day, innocent people pay the price.In addition to the need to enact sane gun legislation, we must eradicate from our culture the racist, misogynist ideas that lead white men to perceive Asian women as sexual objects. Such demeaning stereotypes that turned deadly in Atlanta on Tuesday are rooted in this country’s centuries-long history of anti-Asian laws and policies. In the past year, these old hatreds have been revived by mendacious politicians and misguided people who have attempted to exact retribution from Asians and Asian Americans for the origin and spread of the COVID-19 virus. Women have borne the brunt of these lies: Stop AAPI Hate reports that in the last year, Asian women have reported hate incidents 2.3 times more often than Asian men.As Christian leaders and bishops, we are particularly disturbed that the alleged shooter’s Christian faith is reported to have fueled his desire to murder the women in massage spas whom he believed were sexual temptations. It grieves us that the Christian faith we profess can be twisted and deformed in ways that give rise to violence, particularly to gun violence, by white Christian men against women and people of color. Christian churches, regardless of theology or denomination, must explicitly reject the idea that God wants Christian men to dominate or kill other human beings. Such is not the way of Jesus. Such is not the way of love.We extend our profound sympathies to the families of the victims of this shooting, and we are praying for everyone who has been touched by this brutality. As we have repeatedly emphasized, we pray not to avoid taking action, but to prepare for it. Please join with us in reaching out to the Asian American people in your congregations and communities. Join us too in helping to raise awareness of the ways in which men in this country objectify women, particularly Asian women, and leave them vulnerable to trafficking and gender-based violence. And join us in advocating with your United States Senators to pass these essential pieces of legislation now before them that can help prevent gun violence and save lives:HR 1620, the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2021HR8 Comprehensive Background Checks BillHR1446 Charleston Loophole Bill Rector Albany, NY Rector Smithfield, NC Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Bishops United Against Gun Violence issues statement on Atlanta spa shootings In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Associate Rector Columbus, GA Rector Hopkinsville, KY Submit a Press Release The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Gun Violence, Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI last_img read more

MIAMI, USA — Hurricane Irene has intensified to a category two storm and additional strengthening is forecast during the next 48 hours. Irene could become a major hurricane on Tuesday.According to the National Hurricane Center in Miami, at 8:30 EDT on Monday, the centre of Hurricane Irene was located by an Air Force Reserve hurricane hunter aircraft 200 miles southeast of Grand Turk in the Turks and Caicos Islands, moving toward the west-northwest near 10 mph.A motion toward the west-northwest with a slight increase in forward speed was expected on Monday night and Tuesday. On the forecast track, the core of Irene will move just to the north of the Dominican Republic and Haiti on Monday night and near or over the Turks and Caicos Islands and the southeastern Bahamas on Tuesday, and near the central Bahamas early Wednesday.Data from the hurricane hunter aircraft indicate that maximum sustained winds have increased to near 100 mph, with higher gusts, making Irene a category two hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson scale.Hurricane force winds extend outward up to 45 miles from the centre and tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 185 miles. The minimum central pressure based on data from the hurricane hunter aircraft is 981 mb (28.97 inches).Tropical storm conditions will spread over the northern portions of Dominican Republic on Monday night and localized hurricane conditions are expected over the northern portions of the Dominican Republic by Monday night and early Tuesday. The highest winds are likely to occur over areas of elevated terrain.Hurricane conditions are expected to reach the southeastern Bahamas and the Turks and Caicos Islands on Tuesday and the central Bahamas by late Tuesday and Wednesday.Irene is expected to produce additional rainfall accumulations of 1 to 2 inches across Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. Rainfall amounts of 3 to 6 inches are expected over northern Hispaniola, with isolated amounts of up to 10 inches possible over higher terrain. These rains could cause life-threatening flash floods and mud slides in areas of steep terrain. Rainfall accumulations of 5 to 10 inches are likely in the southeastern Bahamas, the Turks and Caicos Islands and the central Bahamas.A storm surge will raise water levels by as much as 9 to 13 feet above normal tide levels over the southeastern and central Bahamas and the Turks and Caicos Islands. Storm surge will also raise water levels by as much as 2 to 4 feet above normal tide levels along the entire coast of the Dominican Republic. Near the coast, the surge will be accompanied by large and dangerous waves.A hurricane warning is in effect for the north coast of the Dominican Republic from the Haiti border eastward to Cabo Engano; the Turks and Caicos Islands; and the southeastern and central Bahamas.A hurricane watch is in effect for the north coast of Haiti from Le Mole St Nicholas eastward to the Dominican Republic border; and the northwestern Bahamas.A tropical storm warning is in effect for the south coast of the Dominican Republic from Santo Domingo eastward to Cabo Engano and all of Haiti.Caribbean News Nowcenter_img Share 11 Views   no discussions Sharelast_img read more
