Pope John Paul is slated to be declared a saint on Sunday, but some disagree with the declaration of his sainthood
JOHN PAUL II. A picture made available on April 7, 2014 shows a portrait of Pope John Paul II during the final preparations for the opening of The Holy Father John Paul II Family Home Museum in Wadowice, near Cracow, Poland, 05 April 2014. Jacek Bednarczyk/EPA
VATICAN CITY A much-loved pope will be declared a saint on Sunday but not everyone in the Catholic Church agrees.
John Paul II also alienated many left-wing Catholics and has been blamed for hushing up child sex crimes.
“Not all the people of God agree about canonisation,” the International Movement We Are Church said in a statement ahead of the canonisation ceremony in St Peter’s for John Paul II and his Italian predecessor John XXIII.
The group accused the late pope of “spiritual authoritarianism” and of putting too much emphasis on “hierarchical control” two traits it said left little room for victims and investigations of abuses.
“Pope John Paul II was a pope of great contradiction. His tragedy lies in the discrepancy between his commitment to reform and dialogue in the world and his return to authoritarianism,” it said.
The pontiff credited with helping to bring down Communism in Eastern Europe was accused of backing right-wing dictators in Latin America including Augusto Pinochet in Chile during the Cold War.
At the same time, the Vatican cracked down on the Liberation Theology movement of pro-social justice clergymen which it saw as being too Marxist.
Bishops accused of being leftists were replaced by ultra-conservatives and dissident priests were banned from teaching, while more conservative Latin American movements were given favourable treatment.
Here is the original post:

The wildfire has destroyed approximately 500 houses and forced the evacuation of more than 2,000 people. Cyclone Ita made landfall in Queensland, Australia on April 12, toppling houses and boats.
Not since Pope John Paul II has a religious leader been looked upon so ardently as the face of hope in a turbulent world. With global leadership faltering and multilateral organizations incapable of bringing about a resolution to conflicts, all eyes are on Rome, especially as President Obama, the politician of hope, seeks the divine intervention of Pope Francis. On the agenda will be issues of social justice and finding solutions to the vast income inequality that still keeps a billion people in extreme poverty.
A top flight club in Chile have been fined and ordered to change the numbers on their shirts after complaints from Jewish organisations.
Club Deportivo Palestino, who were founded by Palestinian immigrants in 1920, caused big controversy when they wore the distinctive shirts for three matches.
The problem came with the numbers on the back of the shirts, or more specifically how the number one was represented.
As you can see in the photograph above from AFP, the number one was replaced by a map of Palestine as it was before the UN voted to partition it in 1947.
The Jewish organisations who complained about the shirt said that the design implied the entire area was Palestinian and did not recognise the state of Israel.
The club continued to use the shirt, which is also in the green, white and red colours of the Palestine flag, while the Chilean FA investigated.
The federation finally ruled against Palestino and fined them $1,300 (800) saying that they were against “any form of political, religious, sexual, ethnic, social or racial discrimination.”
“We cannot accept the involvement of football with politics and religion,” they added.
On the club’s official Facebook page Palestino state: “For us, free Palestine will always be historical Palestine, nothing less.”
Pope Francis announced a new cadre of cardinals, naming 19 men from Africa, Asia and North and South America, from countries as far-flung as the Ivory Coast and the Philippines to reflect his focus on global poverty. Besides fulfilling administrative duties and acting as counsel for the pope, cardinals main function is to elect a pope when the Holy See becomes vacant. Of the 19 cardinals Francis named, 16 are younger than 80, meaning they are eligible to elect the next pope, the Associated Pressreports

Time traveler Paul Salopek leads his camels across Ethiopias Afar desert. (John Stanmeyer / National Geographic)
Paul Salopek is going for a walk. He set out in Ethiopia at the beginning of 2013. If all goes well, hell arrive at the tip of Chile in 2020. Salopek, 51 and a veteran foreign correspondent, is retracing the 60,000-year-old route of the first humans who emigrated from Africa, through the Middle East and Asia, and into the Americas.
Christened Out of Eden, the project grew partly out of Salopeks love of literature, particularly the tradition of quest stories that dates back to Greek epic poetry. Such stories gave his journey its structure and mission: Follow a prehistoric route in an effort to understand the modern world more deeply. By inching slowly across the surface of the Earth, as Salopek puts it, he wants to discover links between stories, like globalization and climate change, that are covered in a really granular, segmented way by the media.
The project is funded by the National Geographic Society and the Knight Foundation. Salopek writes stories about his travels, transcribes interviews with people he meets, and posts photographs and videos at nationalgeographic.com and outofedenwalk.com. Every 100 miles he snaps a picture of the ground and the sky, takes a panoramic shot of his surroundings, records some audio, and then asks the nearest person three questions: Who are you? Where do you come from? Where are you going?
Salopek spent much of his career covering developing countries, winning two Pulitzer Prizes reporting on Africa for the Chicago Tribune. As a result, he is comfortable in conditions Westerners might consider extreme. Maybe the most important thing that people might find extreme, he says, is the capacity to wait, which the global north seems to find increasingly incomprehensible. The ability to sit under a tree and wait for something to happenits a way of perceiving the world that is getting rarer as the world becomes more wired.
The objective is to walk for seven years straightno coming home for holidays. His long-suffering wife visits him on the road, as do his brothers and sisters. But, Salopek says, Theres no guarantee that in 2020 Im going to be walking onto a beach in Chile. That is the goal, but I reserve the right to stop walking. And that itself becomes part of the journey.
