.@thecfhk has shone a light across DC, NYC & London on the enabling of China’s disregard for human rights abuses and democracy in #HongKong by @iocmedia and corporate sponsors at #Beijing2022. We cannot let these atrocities go unseen during the #OlympicGames pic.twitter.com/RyNSQMbms0

When everybody talks only about possible aggression of #Russia in #Ukraine the West ignores the unprovoked continuous aggression of NATO’s #Turkey against religious and ethnic minorities in #Syria and #Iraq ,which strengthens #ISIS ! #TurkeysWarCrimes @nadinemaenza @eu_eeas https://t.co/zdUxC7dYhc

China doesn’t want us talking about Uyghur genocide, suppression of Hong Kong, the persecution in Tibet, or threats against people of Taiwan. https://t.co/6G7CwfXqmY

NO Uyghurs will be in attendance, they are busy with their slave labor and forced abortions and sterilization. https://t.co/y0ZEFhuRej

I encourage #OlympicGames athletes who are concerned by the atrocities the #CCPChina inflicts on its own people to join this boycott. This is your chance to take a stand for human rights and do what is right. #Beijing2022WinterOlympics #BeijingOlympics

Hugo Boss has quietly removed subsidiaries of a Chinese textile giant from its supplier list days after BuzzFeed News raised questions about the Chinese company’s deep ties to the Xinjiang region, where forced labor is rampant.
Last month BuzzFeed News reported that Hugo Boss and several other major clothing brands were continuing to ship clothes made by Esquel Group, a company that gins and spins cotton at facilities in Xinjiang, where the Chinese government is carrying out a campaign of mass imprisonment and forced labor targeting Uyghurs, Kazakhs, and other Muslim minorities.
Y’all remember the other day when I was banging on about how it’s problematic that the state can regulate its private charitable “competitors” into the ground? Yep: https://t.co/G0FJnQnnuE

The return of the Olympics to China, which is counting on these Games to bolster its global image and validate its authoritarian system, accentuates the silence of governments in the Muslim world. Although these countries are certainly not the only ones that have excused or even abetted China’s human-rights abuses, they have essentially given the Muslim world’s tacit blessing for China to continue its mass atrocities.
TRANSLATION from this Catholic: I condemn the Chinese Communist Party for their human rights abuses—and lament that the world has given the CCP such a platform for their propaganda. https://t.co/OxFFuWLnpm

Last Thursday was Holocaust Remembrance Day. Pegged to the liberation of Auschwitz on January 27, 1945, the anniversary was duly commemorated around the world (with some predictable exceptions). In truth, however, it was a little odd—all those pious self-congratulatory vows of “never again” coming within days of the opening ceremony of the Beijing Olympics. It’s been 86 years since the Olympics were exploited by a genocidal tyrant bent on delivering greater glory to his own government. But at least at that moment Hitler was only planning the Final Solution to exterminate the Jews; he didn’t have active concentration camps as the Communist Party of China does in Xinjiang, bent on the extermination of its Muslim Uyghur population.
400+ maternity homes exist across America to offer pregnant mothers-in-need:
A home for often 2+ years
Abortion is never the solution – more material & life-affirming support is.

While Catholic school educators and supporters work hard to keep tuition costs down and provide as much financial aid as possible, many low-income parents who desire to send their children to these schools still cannot afford to. Fortunately, the Illinois General Assembly passed the bipartisan Invest in Kids Act in 2017 to reform the public school funding formula and create a tax credit scholarship program that provides up to a full scholarship for families that qualify based on financial need. These scholarships are funded through private donations that are eligible for a 75% state income tax credit. The average scholarship recipient comes from a family of four making about $38,000.
Marriage vows are never merely a private matter. A healthier society would care far more about such vows being kept or broken than it does about corporate HR policies. https://t.co/U0rB5GtFkQ

Study of @ half-million US adults found protective effects of marriage especially strong for men. Unmarried men have odds of suicide that are between about 26%-68% higher than married men.

It really is wild to me that every time I publish someone tells me children are a “lifestyle choice” like they’re a maximalist aesthetic instead of just…humanity
