Dutch Protestant Church admits role in persecution of Jews | News | DW | 08.11.2020

The Protestant Church of the Netherlands (PKN) made a far-reaching recognition of guilt on Sunday for its failure to do more for Jews during World War II.

PKN chairman Rene de Reuver said the church’s role began long before Adolf Hitler came to power in Germany. He said the PKN now recognizes that the church “laid the ground under which anti-Semitism and hatred could flourish.”

“The church recognizes faults and feels a present responsibility,” he said. “Anti-Semitism is a sin against God and against people. The Protestant Church is also part of this sinful history.

De Reuver promised that the Protestant church would work to fight anti-Semitism going forward. “We undertake to do everything possible to further develop Judeo-Christian relations into a deep friendship of two equal partners, united among others in the fight against contemporary anti-Semitism.”

Arkansas police chief called for violence against Democrats – CNN

Lang Holland, who was police chief of the roughly 1,300-person city of Marshall, Arkansas, drew outrage from both local residents and people around the country after making ominous comments online in recent days. In addition to repeatedly saying Democrats should be killed, he shared memes from conspiracy theory QAnon and claimed that the election was being stolen.
“Death to all Marxist Democrats,” Holland posted on Parler, a new social media site popular with conservatives and used as an alternative to Twitter. “Take no prisoners leave no survivors!!”
One image he shared depicted a group of Democrats, including Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, wearing prison jumpsuits. Under the image he wrote: “I pray all those in that picture hang on the gallows and are drawn and quartered!!!! Anything less is not acceptable.”
(Me: he should have been fired earlier but now he is allowed to resign)
The mayor said he was surprised and disturbed to find out about the posts. He described Holland as a “hero” who had served multiple tours overseas and said he “is very, very United States.” But he said Holland’s social media posts were out of line. Holland made national news earlier this year when he publicly refused to enforce the state’s Covid-19 mask mandate.

Simple Pilgrim

Perditus

Just a simple pilgrim of life I am

A sojourner of dreams

A wayfarer of thoughts

🌑

The wonder of words is my love 

The magic of music is my muse

The enchantment of art is my saviour

🌑

The unnecessity of antagonism is my adversity 

The constancy of conflict is my nemesis

The abundance of intolerance is my foe

🌑

The old gnarled oak is my friend 

The wise owl is my guide

The mossy battered rock is my bed

🌑

The wonders of the world never cease to amaze 

I am just a simple pilgrim of life
