Saints and Sinners: The weekend’s talking points

first_imgBoot boysHats off to Stephen Myler and Andy Goode, who both broke through the 200 points barrier for this Aviva Premiership season this weekend. Myler’s haul of 20 against Saracens took him to a total of 210, while Goode is just behind him in second spot in the table with 207.In third place is Gareth Steenson with 180. His chances have been limited in recent months as Henry Slade has often been picked ahead of him and when he came off the bench yesterday he missed a pretty simple penalty which was crucial to Exeter Chiefs as they chased a losing bonus point.However, Steenson showed great composure and courage to line up and land a drop goal with the last kick of the match and make sure Wasps only won 36-29. The battle for the play-off spots in the Aviva Premiership and the Guinness Pro12 brought out the best in a lot of players, but the worst in a few. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Super-Scarlet: Liam Williams celebrates his try on Judgement Day III. (Photo: Huw Evans Agency) Centres of attentionEngland centres Luther Burrell and Jonathan Joseph both produced outstanding moments of brilliance this weekend. Burrell made a superb, arcing break through the Saracens’ defence then offloaded out of the tackle to Samu Manoa, who just had to stride over the line for a 19th-minute try for Northampton Saints.The previous evening, for Bath against London Irish, Joseph attacked from half-way, passed out of the back of his hand to Leroy Houston who made more ground then found Francois Louw and the openside shipped the ball on to Joseph, who bet three defenders with a clever chip through and scored a cracking try. He wasn’t the only Bath player to shine in a 43-18 win, during which they made 559 metres in attack and beat 32 defenders. Star turnLiam Williams was the Man of the Match as the Scarlets beat the Dragons 29-10 in the second part of Judgement Day III. The Scarlets full-back created a try for Scott Williams with a brilliant chip and run from his own half and a deft pass off the floor, and he scored a try of his own, darting round the back of a ruck. He made 161 metres with 17 carries and caused the Dragons all kinds of problems. Making a point: Joe Simpson celebrates his wonder-try for Wasps v the Chiefs. (Photo: Getty Images) Clanger from ClancyDragons fans weren’t best pleased with referee George Clancy after he allowed a try from Scarlets hooker Ken Owens to stand, even though Owens had run into the ref on his way to the line.The laws of rugby state that “if the ball or the ball carrier touches the referee and neither team gains an advantage, play continues. If either team gains an advantage in the field of play, the referee orders a scrum”. On this occasion the Scarlets gained an advantage as at least one potential tackler was impeded by Clancy. As the Scarlets won the game 29-10 it could be argued that the try wasn’t decisive, but coming as it did when the Dragons were 10-3 up, it did help turn the tide against them. The SaintsSmokin’ JoeOn a high-scoring weekend of Aviva Premiership action, Wasps scrum-half Joe Simpson produced a contender for Try of the Season in their 36-29 win over Exeter Chiefs. With both clubs chasing a top four finish, the game was in the balance with Wasps 29-26 up with five minutes to go.Chiefs scrum-half Will Chudley hoisted a high kick into the Wasps’ half but Simpson beat the two chasing players to the ball, darted to the blindside, then back round to the left and used a combination of footwork and pace to break through the defence. He had just enough momentum to slide over the line when the tackle from Tom James came in and the ten-point lead the conversion brought was too much for Exeter to overhaul. Burns hot to the lastGloucester’s record of being unbeaten at Kingsholm in 2015 looked set to end as Newcastle Falcons led 40-37 with the clock in red time, but 20-year-old fly-half Billy Burns became the home side’s hero when he sprinted up the left and dived through three would-be tacklers to score the winning try.The 20-year-old, making only his sixth Premiership start, had missed a sitter of a penalty early on but bounced back to create a try for Billy Twelvetrees and to score a total of 22 points in a game in which Gloucester came back from 40-23 down with 11 minutes to play to win 42-40.Winner, winner: Billy Burns dives over the line, to Henry Purdy’s surprise (left). (Photo: Getty Images)center_img Biggar and betterWales fly-half Dan Biggar produced a masterclass of all-round play to help the Ospreys beat Cardiff Blues 31-23 in the Guinness Pro12. Biggar scored 16 points at the Millennium Stadium, including the first try of the second half, when he capitalised on a strong break from Alun Wyn Jones.A darting run from the No 10 through the middle of the park just before half-time gave the Ospreys their first points when Dan Evans finished off the try, after the Blues had taken a 9-0 lead. Biggar also created Tom Grabham’s try with a fine pass. Strong in defence, a superb goal-kicker and a great reader of the game, Biggar is on top of his form right now.Foot down: Dan Biggar on his way to a try for the Ospreys. (Photo: Huw Evans Agency) Judged a successWell done to the Welsh Rugby Union, the four Welsh regions and the 52,762 fans who packed into the Millennium Stadium, for making Judgement Day III such a success.A total of 83 points were scored in the two matches as the Osprey beat the Blues and the Scarlets defeated the Dragons. The double-header is beginning to turn into a major event in the Wales rugby calendar and it deserves to go from strength to strength.As the Cardiff Blues full-back Rhys Patchell said: “It was a fantastic, fantastic occasion. Long may Judgement Day continue.” Psychological blowBristol beat their main Greene King IPA Championship rivals Worcester Warriors on the last weekend of the regular season and so, arguably, go into the promotion play-offs with a slight psychological advantage.The 30-26 win at Worcester’s Sixways Stadium ended the unbeaten home record of the Midlands club and ensure Bristol topped the table with 21 wins out of 22 games. But, having lost to London Welsh in the play-off final last season after topping the table, the South West side know there is all still to play for. Super ShaneA final “well done” goes to Shane Williams, for running the London Marathon in three hours, 36 minutes and 52 seconds. The former Wales wing even retained his sense of humour through the pain, telling BBC TV’s Gabby Logan at the finish line: “I was in the lead for about 60 metres!” Falling short: Billy Vunipola loses the ball short of the try-line. (Photo: Action Images).Billy’s blunderWhen Billy Vunipola charged down a Northampton kick just outside the Saints’ 22, he created a clear-cut try-scoring opportunity for himself. He raced after the loose ball and gathered it safely, but when he fell to the ground just short of the line and bounced forward, the ball slipped out of his hands and away, under his body. His despairing reaction immediately gave away the fact he had not scored the try and his mistake cost Saracens and probably seven points which could have made all the difference to the final result. Kit chaosThere was embarrassment for someone in the Northampton Saints or Saracens backroom staff after the two teams turned up with clashing kits for Saturday’s match. The Saints, who were the home side at Stadium MK, decided to wear special St George’s Day kit for the day. Their red shorts and red and white tops might have looked natty on paper, but as Saracens’ away kit is all-white, there was something of a problem, which, for some reason, had not been anticipated in advance.Saracens were forced to get their black shirts rushed from their base in St Albans to Milton Keynes in time for the second half. It was an amateurish mix-up – the kind of breakdown in communication which shouldn’t really happen.All white: George Kruis, Christian Day and their kits clashing. (Photo: Getty Images) Ulster’s star: Iain Henderson heads for the try-line during the win over Leinster. (Photo: Inpho)Playing a blinderGlasgow, Munster, the Ospreys and Ulster all guaranteed themselves a top-four finish in the Guinness Pro12 with their wins this weekend and Ulster ensured Leinster failed to make the play-offs for the first time since they were introduced in 2009, as they defeated the Dubliners 26-10.Leading the way for Ulster was blindside Iain Henderson, who sprinted onto a pass from the back of a ruck to score his team’s first points, after they had gone 10-0 down. At the centre of everything that was good about Ulster’s game in attack and defence, Henderson was deservedly named Man of the Match. The SinnersExile pushed the boundariesA moment of madness from London Welsh No 8 Chris Hala’ufia resulted in him being sent off during their match against Leicester. Referee Tim Wigglesworth was about to wield the yellow card for an illegal tackle on Laurence Pearce when TV replays showed Hala’ufia then grabbing the prone Tiger by the back of the neck and pushing him face first into the floor.Wigglesworth promptly got out his red card instead and Welsh had to play the last 25 minutes with 14 men.Hala’ufia had an eventful afternoon as earlier in the game he tackled a streaker who thought the sun-kissed afternoon was ideal for a bit of naked exercise. He probably had second thoughts after the Tongan tackled him.last_img read more

Lions 2017: Maori All Blacks 10-32 British & Irish Lions

first_imgThe British & Irish Lions blasted the Maori All Blacks 32-10. Here are all the talking points from the match-up in Rotorua British & Irish Lions: Leigh Halfpenny; Anthony Watson, Jonathan Davies, Ben Te’o, George North (Elliot Daly 62); Johnny Sexton (D Biggar 66), Conor Murray (Greig Laidlaw 66); Mako Vunipola (Jack McGrath 59), Jamie George (Ken Owens 64), Tadhg Furlong (Kyle Sinckler 64), Maro Itoje, George Kruis (Iain Henderson 59), Peter O’Mahony (capt)(Sam Warburton 62), Sean O’Brien, Taulupe Faletau.Tries: Penalty try (7 points), Itoje. Cons: Halfpenny. Pens: Halfpenny 6. Chasing – The kicks that rained down (until the Maori lost their defensive shape and the Lions ran at the them) looked all the better for improved chasing. Too often people use missed tackle statistics as a stick to beat players, but on this night, if a tackle was missed on a kick chase, the catcher was invariably gobbled up. In the aerial game of chicken, the Lions edged it.What’s not?The conditions – The weather was rank. But it has been most of the tour. Not something to complain about but something to help explain why Murray and Halfpenny hoisted so many kicks skywards.Maori cynicism – In the first half a complaint came in about the Maori All Blacks killing ball in their own 22. In the second half such tactics finally got on referee Jaco Peyper’s wick and he eventually snapped ten minutes into the second half.Poor tannoy work – In a land where everyone is told to respect tradition and values, making potato jokes about the Irish seemed poor. Then when Itoje scored, it was announced that “Courtney Lawes” had gone over. The man on the mic also announced some phantom substitutions. Not a great day at the office.All smiles: James Lowe of the Maori All Blacks had a night to forgetStatistics1 – The number of penalties given away by the Lions in the second half.75% – The territory the Lions enjoyed in the game. According to Gatland, they “squeezed the life out of them.”67 – Tackles made by the Lions. That is so few, it is scary. They didn’t need to.21 – Broken tackles by the Lions. With ten offloads added in, this was a more adventurous showing, but both of their tries came from the scrum.Maori All Blacks: James Lowe; Nehe Milner-Skudder, Matt Proctor (Rob Thompson 53), Charlie Ngatai, Rieko Ioane; Damian McKenzie (Ihaia West 62), Tawera Kerr-Barlow (Bryn Hall 74); Kane Hames (Chris Eves 61), Ash Dixon (capt) (Hikawera Elliot 70), Ben May (Marcel Renata 70), Joe Wheeler (Leighton Price 70), Tom Franklin, Akira Ioane, Elliot Dixon (Kara Pryor 74), Liam Messam.Tries: Messam. Cons: McKenzie. Pens: McKenzie.Yellow card: Kerr-Barlow Watch as all the talk of this being the “unofficial fourth Test” disappears – the Lions exerted total and utter control over a Maori All Blacks team that never even flirted with the flair we were promised pre-match. In their 32-10 win, the Lions finally played unapologetically like themselves.Several local fans were grumbling as Leigh Halfpenny unlatched his unerring boot, kicking seven from seven. They had paid to see basketball-style rugby, but what they got was a confident northern hemisphere showing. It was high kicks, punishment of infringements and calmness. The difference between their half-time score (the Lions led 12-10) and their full-time score shows the steadiness.The hosts opened their try account first, though, with a jolter early on. The Maori try was a product of panic. With a Kick in behind, George North and Halfpenny raced back. North slid but spilt the ball after fly-hacking forward, Liam Messam helped himself to a score. North, unlike so many others, still does not look confident in himself.Sure footed: Leigh Halfpenny kicked seven from sevenIt was the only moment of Maori dominance. This was a controlled display – though still mottled by the odd spill, and although discipline was markedly improved by the Lions it is worth noting that referee Jaco Peyper – who takes the whistle in the first Test against the All Blacks at Eden Park – is not a fan of petulance from players.Halfpenny kept the scoreboard ticking over, though, and just as encouraging for them, there was a high level of set-piece superiority.This showed at 51 minutes when the Lions scrum obliterated their Maori counterparts and Peyper went under the posts for a penalty try. This came after a number of offences by the hosts anyway, and Tawera Kerr-Barlow was shown a yellow card for a shoulder shunt on Halfpenny as he made a break for the line.A second Lions try came from Itoje after another strong scrum. The pack will be eager to go again after this, and although there was no breakout score, again, there were glimmers as centres Ben Te’o and Jonathan Davies created plenty of chances.They were so nearly there against the Maori.A convincing win here may render it unimportant for many, but can the Lions score a few more tries? It is still a big thing to work on, alongside eradicating the errors that the All Blacks thrive on. Which in itself is a positive.Here is what’s hot and what’s not from this one.Finding his rhythm: Jonathan Davies looked comfortable alongside Ben Te’oWhich Lions caught the eye?George Kruis – With ten minutes left, under the shadow of the Maori sticks, there was a slow ruck, ripe for picking off. Kruis saw off the danger with a monster clearout. It is this kind of work, allied with set-piece solidity, that makes Kruis an invaluable athlete. He only played an hour, but Henderson added fresh impetus from the pine. With Kruis’s mate Itoje winning Sky’s man of the match, there is a real sense of competition in the boiler house.Johnny Sexton – All that fuss about Farrell tumbled away in the rain as Sexton showed what makes him such a strong competitor. Shouting the odds, making late challenges on the rucks. Two moments in the first half stood out in particular. The first was an outside break when the hole appeared in front of him and the second was a smart turn and nudge into the corner that was millimetre perfect. After the game, John Kirwan praised the fly-half and his mate Conor Murray for a smart performance.Jonathan Davies – He is still missing that final pass, something that was displayed in the first half as he broke up the left side of the pitch and cut inside past defenders instead of running to draw men and unbutton a pass to the outside for support. However, when he surges through the line or floats near a menacing Te’o, he can alter a defence’s shape.FOR THE LATEST SUBSCRIPTION OFFERS, CLICK HEREWhat’s hot?Game management – No one wants to get carried away just yet about the Lions and the Maori backs in particular disappointed, the tourists made their hosts play the game they wanted. The key in New Zealand is never to be press-ganged into a game they enjoy. This was a good example of bloody-mindedness.Dominant: The Lions scrum shoneLions set-piece – They drove well from the lineout and embarrassed the Maori scrum. Kick receptions worked well too. But perhaps what will have pleased Gatland’s assistants the most is ruck clearouts. We saw savage blasts from Kruis and then Henderson, but the team effort was impressive.

2019 Rugby World Cup: New Zealand 23-13 South Africa

Right angle: George Bridge crosses for the opening try against South Africa (Getty Images) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS 2019 Rugby World Cup: New Zealand 23-13 South AfricaHead-to-headPlayed – 99New Zealand wins – 59South Africa wins – 36Draws – 4Did You Know?While half of New Zealand’s starting pack in Yokohama – Joe Moody, Dane Coles, Sam Whitelock and Kieran Read – also started the RWC 2015 semi-final against South Africa, only one back, Aaron Smith, remained for this fixture. Related: Rugby World Cup FixturesIn a nutshellFast, physical and frenetic – this was expected to be a memorable World Cup match and so it proved. There were huge tackles to put a full stop on attacks as well as footwork that saw players weaving their way through defenders.Showing their support: Young fans at the stadium in Yokohama (Getty Images)South Africa started at full pelt in front of the crowd of 63,649 in Yokohama, powering into contact and disrupting New Zealand’s flow with uncompromising hits in defence. The All Blacks – not helped by some poor passes and questionable decision-making – barely escaped their half for the first quarter.However, the All Blacks then did what they are wont to do and counter-attacked with speed and precision to score two quick tries, through George Bridge and Scott Barrett, to lead 17-3 at the break.Watch George Bridge’s opening try here…center_img Pieter-Steph Du Toit spotted a huge gap behind a ruck to burst through to score and the Springboks threatened through Faf de Klerk and Cheslin Kolbe.But a penalty here or turnover there allowed the All Blacks to launch attacks of their own. And a couple of successful kicks at goal in that second period meant the defending champions not only held on for the win but denied the Boks a losing bonus point.They finished it all off by bowing to fans on all sides of the stadium!Mind the gap: Scott Barrett runs in New Zealand’s second try (Getty Images)Star manSpecial mention to South Africa wing Cheslin Kolbe, who thrilled spectators with his weaving runs – whether through midfield or out on the wing – and made nearly twice as many metres as any other player with 118. But for a Richie Mo’unga tackle Kolbe would have a second-half try to his name. It was Beauden Barrett, with his ability to counter-attack from first receiver and full-back, who proved decisive for the All Blacks though. He made 17 carries – more than any other player. He played a part in both first-half tries – one of them for his brother – and helped get his team out of trouble when the Boks piled on the pressure in the second half.Related: Rugby World Cup TV CoverageThe reactionNew Zealand full-back Beauden Barrett: “We got to throw the ball around a bit, sometimes probably too much because it was a bit breezy out there. There was some expansive rugby and that’s why people come and watch footy. If we can keep doing that all tournament, that’s what we’re here for.”South Africa captain Siya Kolisi: “They handled our kicking game really well and were ready for everything we threw at them. We didn’t execute when we had opportunities and they’re very good off turnovers. They really played well and I couldn’t fault them in any way.”Post delivery: Pieter-Steph du Toit dives to scores South Africa’s first try (Getty Images)The TeamsNew Zealand: Beauden Barrett; Sevu Reece, Anton Lienert-Brown, Ryan Crotty (Sonny Bill Williams 52), George Bridge; Richie Mo’unga (Ben Smith 67), Aaron Smith (TJ Perenara 62); Joe Moody (Ofa Tuungafasi 52), Dane Coles (Codie Taylor ht), Nepo Laulala (Angus Ta’avao 52), Samuel Whitelock, Scott Barrett (Shannon Frizell 76), Ardie Savea, Sam Cane (Patrick Tuipulotu ht), Kieran Read (captain).Tries: Bridge 24, S Barrett 27.

Tenía 60 años. Junto a él también murió Harold Cepero. Otros dos acompañantes resultaron heridos. Sus familiares dijeron que el accidente “fue provocado” por otro vehículo. Le sobreviven su esposa Ofelia Acevedo y tres hijos. En el 2002 la Unión Europea le concedió el Premio Sajarov por sus esfuerzos para lograr la democracia. Isaúl González,  director de Radio Esperanza en Miami, dijo “Siento haber perdido a un hermano de la Patria, a un hermano en la fe y la esperanza de una nueva Cuba… Dios tenga a Oswaldo en su gloria”. Hasta ahora el régimen de La Habana no ha dado la noticia pese a que han pasado más de 24 horas.El viernes pasado el mundo entero amaneció con la terrible noticia de un atentado en Aurora, Colorado, en el que un individuo sin motivo alguno, terminó con un rato de alegría al hacer fuego en una sala cinematográfica donde se estrenaba la última película de la serie Batman llamada El Caballero Oscuro. La reacción fue inmediata, el presidente Obama suspendió su campaña electoral, regresó a Washington y declaró cinco días de duelo nacional. Muchos otros han expresado enojo y rechazo ante estos hechos que empañan la industria del entretenimiento, la convivencia pacífica nacional y que dejó la trágica suma de 12 personas muertas y al menos a 58 heridos. Varios analistas han dicho que la cultura de glorificar el uso de las armas y su fácil acceso a ellas son dos de los motivos principales que generan tragedias como éstas. También se ha dicho que las escenas de violencia en el cine juegan un papel secundario. Michael Bloomberg , alcalde de Nueva York, instó a los aspirantes a la presidencia a que se definan en cuanto al uso de armas. “No es suficiente dar condolencias”, dijo.Jerald Borgie, pastor de la familia de James Holmes, sospechoso de la masacre de Colorado, ha dicho que Holmes le daba la impresión de ser “un muchacho tímido e inteligente”. La madre del sospechoso asiste regularmente a la Iglesia Luterana Penasquitos en San Diego, California. El pastor dijo que hacía 6 años que no lo veía.La Iglesia Anglicana en Sudáfrica hizo historia el 18 de julio cuando eligió a Ellinah Ntombi Wamukoya, una mujer de 61 años de edad, como obispa de Swazilandia, convirtiéndose así en la primera mujer en órdenes episcopales en África. Wamukoya es capellana de la Universidad de Swazilandia y un colegio secundario. El país ha sido protectorado de Inglaterra y en la actualidad está gobernado por una monarquía absoluta. Tiene el índice más alto de enfermos de sida en el mundo. Con 70.000 habitantes, la capital Mbabane es la principal ciudad.La Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú fundada en 1917 ha recibido una nota oficial del Vaticano informándole que ya no podrá llamarse ni “Pontificia”, ni “Católica” debido a que ha modificado unilateralmente sus estatutos “perjudicando gravemente los intereses de la iglesia”. Dice la nota que “en diversas ocasiones” anteriores fue advertida de la posibilidad de esta medida y no hicieron caso. Según observadores los principales motivos de fricción son una herencia que data de 1940 y la negativa de la universidad de someterse a la autoridad del conservador arzobispo Juan Luis Cipriani como Gran Canciller. Con 14 departamentos académicos y 10 facultades, la universidad sirve a miles de estudiantes. Ante la presente situación una alumna escribió: “El hábito no hace al monje. Llamen a la PUCP como quieran, porque el prestigio que ostenta lo tiene bien ganado y no se lo debe a su nombre”.El domingo 22 de julio se celebró en la Iglesia Episcopal del Espíritu Santo en Miami el 25 aniversario de la consagración de Onell A. Soto, como obispo de la Iglesia Anglicana en Venezuela. Su hija Elena Soto-Chapa habló de las experiencias vividas con su padre durante sus ocho años en Venezuela y el sermón fue predicado por rector de la parroquia Rafael García. Miembros de la parroquia, familiares, amigos y líderes ecuménicos se congregaron en la antigua iglesia pese al torrencial aguacero que marcó el evento. Soto está disfrutando de su jubilación en Miami con su esposa Nina y ambos producen el noticiero internacional Rapidísimas.TESTIMONIO. El Señor es mi luz y mi salvación; ¿de quién temeré?

Pero, si bien aplaudían la medida limitada que le ofrece una vía legal al trabajo a personas jóvenes que ingresaron [ilegalmente] siendo niños en Estados Unidos, la concurrencia instó a Jerry Brown, gobernador de California, a firmar  la Ley TRUST que extiende alguna protección a miembros de la familia y la comunidad.Por ejemplo, Diego y José Hernández, mellizos de 18 años que cursan el último año de la escuela secundaria y que vinieron con sus padres de México cuando tenían 7, hablaron en la conferencia de prensa en la catedral. Ellos tienen derecho al indulto temporal de dos años, pero sus padres no.Los mellizos se cuentan entre los millares de jóvenes inmigrantes que hicieron colas el 15 de agosto para aprovecharse del “plan de acción diferido” del presidente Obama, un programa por el cual “…individuos que tengan derecho y que no constituyan un riesgo a la seguridad nacional o pública podrán pedir una suspensión temporal de sus procesos de deportación y solicitar una autorización para trabajar”.El Rdo. Richard Smith, sacerdote adjunto en la iglesia episcopal de San Juan Evangelista [St. John the Evangelist] pronunció unas palabras en nombre de Marc Andrus, obispo de California, ante un grupo de más de 50 personas presentes en la catedral, entre ellas periodistas de los grandes medios de prensa.“Éste no ha sido un camino fácil para ustedes, que una y otra vez han dado un paso adelante para decir la verdad y contar sus historias. A veces ha habido riesgos, pero ustedes han sido valientes, y lo han hecho. Nos enorgullecemos de ustedes y nos enorgullecemos de seguir junto a ustedes hasta que hayamos logrado que se haga justicia para todas sus familias también”, dijo Smith. Él es un líder clerical del Proyecto de Organización de San Francisco, una red comunitaria que representa a más de 40.000 familias.“Una palabra acerca de la Ley TRUST que está a punto de llegar al escritorio del gobernador Brown: sabemos que la inmensa mayoría de los inmigrantes en nuestras iglesias y comunidades son personas respetuosas de la ley que trabajan arduamente para sostener a sus familias”, siguió diciendo él. “[y que] hacen enormes contribuciones a nuestra economía, nuestra sociedad, nuestra cultura y, ciertamente, a nuestras vidas de fe”.“Y es por eso que está diócesis y nuestro obispo le hacen un llamado hoy al gobernador Brown a que firme la Ley TRUST cuando llegue a su escritorio”, concluyó Smith.Las actividades de inmigración de la Diócesis de California son un reflejo del histórico apoyo de la Iglesia Episcopal a una reforma migratoria global. Más recientemente, la 77ª. Convención General aprobó la Resolución D059 “Detener la injusta reforma migratoria”, así como la D011 “Reformar la desigual ley de inmigración”.La D059 pide que se suspenda el Programa de Comunidades Seguras, del Servicio de Inmigración y Control de Aduanas (ICE, por su sigla en inglés), que se concibió como un medio para que las autoridades federales deportaran a los inmigrantes indocumentados con antecedentes penales.“[En lugar de eso] estamos deportando a cualquiera que viole las leyes de inmigración, no sólo a delincuentes”, dijo Smith en una entrevista anterior con el Servicio de Prensa Episcopal (ENS). Él conoce de casos en que un inmigrante indocumentado es detenido por la falta de una luz trasera en su auto, arrestado y deportado, a pesar de la ausencia de antecedentes penales.La Ley TRUST de California se propone restablecer la confianza [trust] entre las autoridades locales y las comunidades de inmigrantes —confianza que se ha visto erosionada por [el programa de] Comunidades Seguras, según los datos informativos.El programa Comunidades Seguras del ICE, según el texto de la Resolución D059 “…conduce a largos períodos de detención —a expensas del público— de inmigrantes sin representación que no tienen graves cargos pendientes en su contra, y de hecho inhibe a las víctimas de diversos delitos, tales como la violencia doméstica, de denunciar esos delitos”.“Dicen que es para proteger nuestras comunidades”, dijo la Rda. Paula Jackson, rectora de la iglesia de Nuestro Salvador [Our Savior], en Cincinnati, Ohio, y quien propuso la resolución, [cuando en verdad] “Destroza las comunidades”.Jackson bautizó recientemente a los tres hijos de una pareja no casada (rechazados por la Iglesia Católica Romana), una ocasión usualmente feliz que se vio ensombrecida por la deportación del padre a [su natal] Guatemala.“Lo que debía haber sido una celebración se vio colmada de pesar”, dijo ella al hablar [en apoyo de] la Resolución D059 en la Convención General.En la primera mitad de 2011, deportaron a más de 46.000 padres, que dejaron atrás a sus hijos que son ciudadanos de EE.UU. De esos que se quedaron, se calcula que más de 5.000 fueron puestos en hogares de acogida —a menudo sin consultar a los padres y cuando pudieron haberlos situado con familiares o con amigos cercanos a la familia. —según un aviso de acción de la Red Episcopal de Política Pública del 1 de agosto en que se citan datos federales obtenidos por el Centro de Investigaciones Aplicadas —un comité asesor de justicia racial— a través de una solicitud de libertad de información.En los 22 años que Jackson ha prestado servicios en Nuestro Salvador, la parroquia ha llegado a convertirse en una especie de refugio para inmigrantes. Durante una entrevista telefónica después de la Convención, Jackson describió la población a la que sirve la iglesia de Nuestro Salvador y explicó que en una ocasión había acompañado de regreso a Guatemala a una mujer indígena que era analfabeta —y que junto con sus tres hijos había perdido su apelación de asilo— en un viaje a través de aeropuertos de grandes ciudades y la embajada de EE.UU. hasta llegar a su remota aldea.“Los inmigrantes que vienen a nuestra Iglesia son un grupo selecto —mucho más los inmigrantes recientes—  y los que vienen a la iglesia de Nuestro Salvador tienden a ser indígenas cuya segunda lengua es el español, su primera lengua es un idioma indígena, el man, una lengua maya, y la mayoría eran ciudadanos de segunda clase en el sitio de donde provenían”, dijo Jackson. “No sólo vienen de la pobreza, la pobreza es algo que se da por sentado, aunque algunos son gente muy preparada y no pueden ganarse la vida. Huyen de la opresión brutal y la violencia”.La disparidad en las leyes de inmigración también afecta adversamente a parejas del mismo sexo, especialmente cuando uno de los dos nació en el extranjero. Eso llevó a Sarah Lawton, diputada de California y vicepresidente de la Comisión Permanente sobre Justicia Social y Política Pública, a proponer la [resolución] D011.Su marido es inmigrante y ciudadano naturalizado. Pero si él no fuera ciudadano, ella podría patrocinarlo —una opción que no tienen las parejas del mismo sexo, dijo Lawton. La resolución fomenta una legislación que le permita a las parejas del mismo sexo tener los mismos derechos que las parejas heterosexuales en lo tocante a la capacidad de un ciudadano estadounidense o de un residente permanente de patrocinar a su pareja en el proceso de inmigración.Lawton explicó, en una entrevista telefónica con ENS, que su parroquia —San Juan Evangelista en el Distrito Misión de San Francisco, donde Smith presta sus servicios— ha perdido miembros, muchos de los cuales [han emigrado] al Canadá, donde permiten el patrocinio [conyugal] de parejas del mismo sexo.La Iglesia Episcopal ha apoyado históricamente una reforma migratoria global; las resoluciones aprobadas en la 77ª. Convención General reafirman esa posición.“Las resoluciones aprobadas en la Convención General le dan a mi labor en Washington su centro y su legitimidad”, dijo Katie Conway, analista de la política de inmigración y refugiados de la Iglesia Episcopal. “Es algo muy convincente para los funcionarios de la Administración o los miembros del Congreso ver cómo una resolución sobre inmigración propuesta por una diócesis en Ohio, en un distrito, puede luego ayudar a la defensa [de una causa] a través del país, en California o Nueva Jersey o Arizona, en otras diócesis y otros distritos”.“Estas resoluciones ofrecen una oportunidad de ilustrar a los legisladores sobre estos problemas mediante la labor y la pasión de los episcopales y garantizar que la voz [de la Iglesia] Episcopal siga siendo firme y clara mientras continuamos promoviendo políticas migratorias humanas y justas”.A nivel local, agregó Lawton, el contar con resoluciones tales como la D059 ayuda a conseguir apoyo para iniciativas tales como la Ley TRUST.La Convención General aprobó una tercera resolución relacionada con la inmigración, la D067, que expresa su “apoyo a la aprobación de una legislación federal que ofrezca un camino a la ciudadanía a jóvenes y jóvenes adultos indocumentados” y que respalda el otorgamiento de becas a jóvenes indocumentados que serían los beneficiarios de la Ley DREAM.La Ley DREAM, una legislación bipartidista que ofrecería un camino a la ciudadanía a personas que hubiesen llegado a Estados Unidos como menores, está atascada en el Congreso. El 15 de junio, el presidente Barack Obama, que ha alentado su aprobación y quien dijo que la firmaría, anunció el plan de acción diferida.En el pasado, el gobierno federal ha concedido amnistía a inmigrantes indocumentados que reúnan ciertos criterios.De no haber sido por la Ley de Reforma y Control de la Inmigración de 1986, Ariana González-Bonillas, de la Diócesis de Arizona, dijo que ella no hubiera podido asistir a la Convención General como parte de la Presencia Oficial de la Juventud en 2012.“Mi padre no nació aquí. Nació en Ciudad de México en el seno de una familia pobre, que se mudó a California cuando él tenía 7 años, y él se quedó aquí indocumentado durante los próximos 10 años”, testificó ella durante una reunión del Comité de Asuntos Nacionales e Internacionales el 9 de julio. “Él vivía en el valle de San Fernando, en Los Ángeles, y rodeado por otras personas indocumentadas. En la escuela secundaria contempló la idea de alistarse en el ejército, aunque había progresado lo bastante [en sus estudios] para llegar convertirse en el estudiante de mejores notas. Hubiera podido ir a cualquier escuela si sólo hubiera tenido documentos”.La ley de 1986 le permitió a su padre asistir al Instituto Tecnológico de Massachusetts. Dos años después, conoció a la madre de González-Bonillas, que estudiaba en el vecino Wellesley College.“Un sacerdote episcopal los casó cuando ella se graduó”, agrego. “Dos años después de eso, él se convirtió en ciudadano de EE.UU., una semana antes que yo naciera. Cuando yo tenía 6 meses, me bautizaron en la Iglesia Episcopal. Podría decir que debido a la amnistía que le permitió a mi padre ir a la universidad, yo estoy ante ustedes hoy, y es por eso que quiero ayudar a otros jóvenes indocumentados a ir a la universidad, a adquirir una notable educación y finalmente a adoptar la ciudadanía al tiempo que una vida mejor, y a que sepan que los apoyamos de todo corazón”.– Lynette Wilson es redactora y reportera del Servicio de Prensa Episcopal.

Reporteros internacionales dicen desde Venezuela que hay “una tensa calma” pese a los dos muertos en Barinas y muchos se preguntan qué pasará el día 7 y el oficialismo “está temeroso” de perder las elecciones. Las clases media y alta apoyan a la oposición mientras que los sectores más pobres prefieren continuar con el líder socialista que ha gobernado al país por 14 años. La inseguridad ciudadana, la inflación, la corrupción y el mal uso de la renta petrolera parecen conspirar contra el gobierno. Esperamos que la paz y la justica reinen en la tierra de Bolívar.Con la campaña electoral en Estados Unidos se ha hecho evidente que muchas personas conocen poco de religión, incluyendo la historia, doctrina y práctica de los mormones. En el internet se puede obtener información documentada bajo el título Movimiento de los Santos de los Últimos Días. Las dos páginas, llenas de información, fueron escritas por miembros de esta iglesia.Jhan Moskowitz, uno de los fundadores del movimiento evangelístico “Judíos por Jesús”, murió recientemente al golpearse la cabeza en una caída el 25 de septiembre en una estación del tren subterráneo de Nueva York. Tenía 64 años de edad. Sus padres fueron sobrevivientes del Holocausto en Alemania.El líder palestino Mahmoud Abbas, dijo recientemente en su visita a las Naciones Unidas en Nueva York que 128 países reconocen a la Autoridad Palestina como Estado. Pero aún no tiene el reconocimiento de las Naciones Unidas.ENInews el servicio ecuménico de prensa patrocinado por el Consejo Mundial de Iglesias y otras entidades ha dejado de publicarse por falta de fondos. Fue fundado en 1994 y servía a 500 subscriptores alrededor del mundo.Voceros oficiales han dicho que Francia está preparada para prohibir la palabra “madre” y “padre” en todos los documentos oficiales bajo el polémico plan para legalizar el matrimonio gay. La medida ya cuenta con la oposición de la comunidad cristiana. El proyecto de ley establece que “el matrimonio es una unión de dos personas, distintas o del mismo sexo”. La ley también daría la igualdad de derechos de adopción a parejas homosexuales y heterosexuales.Líderes evangélicos han criticado la participación de la comisionada de la Policía Nacional de Nicaragua, Aminta Granera, por ayudar a cargar en sus hombros en León la estatua de la Virgen de la Merced que celebra su primer centenario. Dijeron que la policía es una institución no confesional y con esa decisión no sólo se viola la Constitución, sino también el reglamento interno de la misma. El artículo 14 de la Constitución nicaragüense afirma que “el Estado no tiene religión oficial”.En la Catedral Nacional de Washington (de la Iglesia Episcopal) se celebró recientemente un oficio religioso en memoria de Neil Armstrong, el astronauta que puso pie en la luna por primera vez en la historia de la humanidad. Al oficio asistieron directivos de la NASA, antiguos compañeros y oficiales del gobierno. La homilía estuvo a cargo de Mariann Edgar Budde, nueva obispa de Washington. El vitral de la catedral dedicado al espacio sideral tiene un pequeño fragmento de roca lunar en su pieza central.Samuel Silva Gotay, profesor de la Facultad de Ciencias Sociales de la Universidad de Puerto Rico, señala que actualmente, a pesar de no existir aún datos oficiales, en Puerto Rico el protestantismo representa cerca del 40 por ciento de quienes se definen como creyentes. Silva Gotay, autor de “Protestantismo y Política en Puerto Rico”, añadió que el pentecostalismo ha dejado atrás a católicos romanos y protestantes “clásicos” en la adopción de nuevos fieles.La prensa hondureña informó que el pastor evangélico Antonio Trejo fue ultimado por cinco sicarios en una iglesia frente al aeropuerto Toncontín, en Tegucigalpa donde asistía a una boda. Tenía 41 años de edad. Trejo era también abogado y como tal era apoderado legal del Movimiento Campesino del Aguán, militante activo del partido Frente Amplio y aspirante a diputado por el departamento de Colón.
