Mitt Romney’s French education
The small church in the Bordeaux suburb of Talence looks the same today as it did in the late 1960s, when Romney and fellow missionaries were photographed in front of it during a rare visit by then LDS church president, Howard Hunter.
In this article you mention that Mitt Romney was in a photograph in the late 1960′s “during a rare visit by then LDS church president, Howard Hunter”.
In the late 1960′s, Howard Hunter was a high ranking church official – a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles”, but was not the President of the Church. He was called to the position of church president much later.
The reason I know this is because I served a mission for the LDS church at about the same time as Mitt Romney (1967-69), but in a different country. In spite of this minor error, I thank you and its author for this informative, interesting and unbiased article.
Pope’s Berlin mass moved to Nazi Olympic site
I was really disappointed when I was reading this article.
What is the sense or the ulterior motive of the first part? That it will be a nazi-like event with red flags and torches and so on?
You have the wrong information in a photo caption.
The Photo is Benedict XVI praying in front of tomb of John Paul I. John Paul II is buried in ground, and has a slanting tombstone.
Indeed. We corrected the photo caption: GBU Editor
Mubarak likely to quit, Brotherhood fears coup
CAIRO, Feb 10 (Reuters) – Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak looked likely to step down on Thursday after more than two weeks of protests against his 30-year rule and the Islamist Muslim Brotherhood said it looked like there had been a military coup.
“Islamist Muslim Brotherhood” (in re Egypt and elsewhere) seems rather redundant, as the existence of a non-Islamist Muslim Brotherhood would seem to be something of an oxymoron.
Pope: Governments must protect minority Christians
He made reference to last week’s murder of Salman Taseer, the Muslim governor of Punjab province and an outspoken liberal, who was gunned down for opposing the law, which imposes a death sentence for those who insult the Prophet Mohammad.
I’ve just noticed recently that Reuters is following in the footsteps of AP and AFP in designating the Islamic prophet Mohammad as “The Prophet Mohammad”.
Pope John Paul nears sainthood, to be beatified
See the attached documents and please explain why my comments are inappropriate. I have informed the truth as it could be.
You’re asking why your comments on this story didn’t make it online? We get that from a number of readers, and usually there is a very good reason.
God was behind Big Bang, universe no accident: Pope
VATICAN CITY (Reuters) – God’s mind was behind complex scientific theories such as the Big Bang, and Christians should reject the idea that the universe came into being by accident, Pope Benedict said on Thursday.
Benedict and his predecessor John Paul have been trying to shed the Church’s image of being anti-science, a label that stuck when it condemned Galileo for teaching that the earth revolves around the sun, challenging the words of the Bible.
Could you please correct the picture posted with this article?
The picture is of the Holy Trinity Ukrainian Orthodox Cathedral of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of Canada, which in no way is connected to the story.
As a prominent landmark of Winnipeg, our Cathedral should in no way be associated with this article.
US pastor backs off Koran-burning plan for now
Jones’ adult son Luke, who wore a handgun on his hip because of death threats against church members, told reporters his father would fly to New York later on Friday.
Shouldn’t that be ‘alleged death threats,’ or ‘reported death threats?’
