The amended law includes this provision defining “freedom of thought, conscience, and religion”:

Mali’s cultural heritage, including its ancient manuscripts, was severely damaged. In Timbuktu, many valuable manuscripts were burned or stolen, forcing their owners, communities and local NGOs to send them to Bamako, the capital of the country. Timbuktu was the cultural, economic and intellectual capital of Mali and also the home of the first university. The scholars that visited Timbuktu studied astronomy, medicine, poetry, and music and debated the details of Islamic law.

And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good and God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them

Here’s what scientist say about race?

The sons of Ham were Cush and Mizraim and Put and Canaan. 7The sons of Cush were Seba and Havilah and Sabtah and Raamah and Sabteca; and the sons of Raamah were Sheba and Dedan. Now Cush became the father of Nimrod; he became a mighty one on the earth. He was a mighty hunter before the LORD; therefore it is said, “Like Nimrod a mighty hunter before the LORD.” The beginning of his kingdom was Babel and Erech and Accad and Calneh, in the land of Shinar.

Now the whole earth used the same language and the same words.And they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city and a tower with its top in the sky. Let us make a name for ourselves; otherwise, we will be scattered over the face of the whole earth.”The LORD said, “If they have begun to do this as one people all having the same language, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them.Come, let Us go down there and confuse their language so that they will not understand one another’s speech.”So from there the LORD scattered them over the face of the whole earth, and they stopped building the city.Therefore its name is called Babylon, for there the LORD confused the language of the whole earth, and from there the LORD scattered them over the face of the whole earth.

Vatican Secrets To Be Revealed Thursday

Two new blockbuster books containing leaked documents about the Vatican’s internal financial operations, set for release this coming Thursday. The books”Avarice: The Papers that Reveal Wealth, Scandals and Secrets in the Church of Francis” and “Via Crucis”,  were written by Italian journalists Emiliano Fittipaldi and Gianluigi Nuzzi, respectively.

Italian journalist Gianluigi Nuzzi’s “Merchants in the Temple” follows his blockbuster 2012 book, “His Holiness,” based on confidential papal correspondence corruption and political intrigue in the Vatican. The Vatileaks scandal that ensued resulted in the conviction of Pope Benedict XVI’s butler for leaking the documents, and some say, to Benedict’s historic resignation. Both book promise to reveal scores of previously secret Vatican documents. The Vatican announced on Monday that two people, Spanish Monsignor Lucio Angel Vallejo Balda and Italian laywoman Francesca Chaouqui, had been detained on suspicion of having leaked confidential documents used in the new books. The priest is in a jail cell in the custody of Vatican police, known as “gendarmeria,” while Chaoqui was released on Sunday after assisting the authorities in their investigation. Chaoqui is said to be cooperating in the probe.

Chaoqui is an independent PR consultant, while Vallejo is secretary of the Prefecture for the Economic Affairs of the Holy See, an office that formerly reviewed the work of all offices of the Vatican that manage finances. Vallejo is Spanish and Chaoqui Italian/Moroccan, so the Vatican might need help from authorities in those two countries if it decides to pursue criminal charges. Vallejo and Chaoqui are accused of collaborating with Italian journalists Emiliano Fittipaldi and Gianluigi Nuzzi for their upcoming books, “Avarice: The Papers that Reveal Wealth, Scandals and Secrets in the Church of Francis” and “Via Crucis,” respectively.The two detainees are father Lucio Angel Vallejo Balda, 54, who is Spanish, and the Italian-Moroccan Francesca Chaoqui, 33. both were members of the Pontifical Commission established on Pope Francis’ order to investigate the Church’s finances. Vallejo and Chaoqui were arrested after a months-long investigation into the dissemination of “news and confidential documents” to the writers of the soon to be released books.They will both be judged under the Law of the Vatican State, officials said.The two books, in the Vatican statement, said that “this time, as in the past, they’re the result of a serious betrayal of the pope’s trust,” and defined the books as “an operation to take advantage of a serious unlawful release of confidential documents. Italian news reports said the Vatican’s gendarmeria, or police force, were investigating who had tampered with the computer of the Vatican’s auditor general, Libero Milone, a layman.

The Vatican’s press statement said Chaouqui, 33, was released after spending one night in jail in exchange for her cooperation with investigations. Meanwhile, the position of Spanish prelate Msgr. Balda, 54, is still being examined by the Promoter of Justice.
