Don Hutto en Taylor, Texas, el 8 de julio de 2018.El video está disponible aquí.Y ahora, en nombre de nuestro amoroso, liberador y vivificante Dios, el Padre, el Hijo y el Espíritu Santo. Amén.Antes de compartir algunas reflexiones, quiero agradecerles, todos ustedes están bajo el sol, serán pocas, confíen en mí. Quiero agradecer a todos los que han hecho esto posible, Megan, el Obispo DeDe y Winnie, a todos los que han hecho esto posible, y quiero darle las gracias especialmente a esta comunidad, a aquellos que han ayudado en la obtención de los permisos para que pudiéramos llevar a cabo nuestro testimonio de oración y fe con decencia y orden. Además, solo quiero dar una palabra de gratitud al alcalde y al alcalde pro tempore que vinieron a recibirnos.Permítanme decir que no venimos con odio. No venimos con intolerancia. No venimos para humillar a nadie. Venimos a confortar a todos. Venimos en amor. Venimos en amor porque seguimos a Jesús. Y Jesús nos enseñó el amor. Ama al Señor tu (Dios). Y ama a tu (prójimo). Ama a tu vecino liberal. Ama a tu vecino conservador. Ama a tu vecino demócrata. Ama a tu vecino republicano. Ama a tu vecino independiente. Ama a tu prójimo a quien no te gusta. Ama al vecino con el que no estás de acuerdo. Ama a tu vecino cristiano. Ama a tu vecino musulmán. Ama a tu vecino judío. Ama a tu vecino palestino. Ama a tu vecino israelí. Ama a tu vecino refugiado. Ama a tu vecino inmigrante. Ama a tu vecino, el guardia de la prisión. ¡Ama a tu prójimo!Venimos en amor, en amor. Yo diría que las enseñanzas de Jesús de amar a Dios y amar a nuestro prójimo son el núcleo y el corazón de lo que significa ser un seguidor de Jesucristo. Y debemos ser personas que reclamen el cristianismo desde su modalidad popular, desde la manera en que a menudo es percibido y presentado, un estilo de cristianismo que luce en sí mismo como Jesús. Y Jesús dijo: ama a Dios y ama a tu prójimo. Venimos en amor. Ese es el núcleo de nuestra fe. Ese es su corazón. Y venimos, porque somos cristianos y el camino del amor exige que seamos humanitarios. Requiere que cuidemos a aquellos que no tienen a nadie que los cuide. Y venimos, porque no creemos que una gran nación como ésta separe a niños de sus familias. Venimos, porque creemos que esta nación concebida en libertad, fue dedicada a la premisa de que todas las personas son creadas iguales. ¡Creemos que debemos llamar a esta nación, Estados Unidos de América, de vuelta a su alma! Estamos aquí porque amamos a esta nación. Porque si realmente amas a alguien, no los dejas en la condición en que están. Usted los ayuda a convertirse en su mejor versión. Estamos aquí para salvar el alma de los Estados Unidos de América. ¡Salva el alma de los Estados Unidos de América!Ahora, permítanme aclararlo brevemente de la siguiente manera. Si usted desea tener un símbolo para los Estados Unidos de América, vuele a Nueva York en alguna oportunidad. No estoy hablando de la ciudad de Nueva York como el símbolo de Estados Unidos. Es un lugar agradable, pero no estoy seguro de querer señalar eso. Quiero decir que es un lugar maravilloso, buenas personas, pero el puerto, si usted vuela sobre el puerto, dependiendo de su aproximación, y yo lo hago todo el tiempo, generalmente porque vengo desde Raleigh, Carolina del Norte. Yo tengo que mirar hacia el lado izquierdo del avión, y cuando lo hago, mientras el avión está acercándose al aeropuerto de La Guardia, usted verá una gran estatua verde. Es una estatua de mujer y tiene una antorcha en la mano, levantada, y un libro en la mano, y en ese libro están inscritas las palabras, 4 de julio de 1776. Debemos salvar el alma de los Estados Unidos de América mediante un llamado a volver a su núcleo, a sus valores fundamentales que no siempre ha cumplido, pero que, no obstante, siguen allí. Y el 4 de julio de 1776, si recuerdo mi historia correctamente, en ese día se emitió una Declaración de Independencia. Ahora somos amigos de Gran Bretaña, ahora, pero en aquel entonces teníamos algunos problemas. Y en ese día, en la Declaración de Independencia, usted encontrará estas palabras: “Sostenemos como evidentes estas verdades: que todos los hombres”, todas las personas, todas las personas, “son creados iguales”.No solo los estadounidenses, no, sino todas las personas, sin importar de dónde vengan. Gente de Honduras, gente de México, gente de Costa Rica, gente de Venezuela, gente de Asia, gente de África, gente de Europa, todas las personas son creadas iguales. ¡Todas!Pienso que eso son los Estados Unidos de América. Y luego el texto continúa en la Declaración de Independencia, “todas las personas son creadas iguales; que son dotadas por su Creador”, no por el Congreso, ni por un parlamento, ni por un potentado, ni por un presidente, dotadas por el Creador, “de ciertos derechos inalienables” – derechos inalienables, que no se pueden resumir o no se pueden modificar porque provienen de Dios. La vida, la libertad y la búsqueda de la felicidad, ESE es el estilo estadounidense. Venimos en amor. Venimos porque creemos en amar a tu prójimo. Y venimos porque amamos a Estados Unidos y queremos que Estados Unidos sea fiel a su yo superior.Pero permítanme continuar porque realmente estoy llegando a la conclusión. En esa misma Estatua de la Libertad hay un poema compuesto por Emma Lazarus. Y estas son las palabras, no estoy inventando esto, está en la Estatua de la Libertad. ¡Usted no puede conseguir algo más estadounidense que esto! ¡Entonces, estadounidenses, escúchenme bien! Estas son las palabras en la Estatua de la Libertad:No como el mítico gigante griego de bronce,De miembros conquistadores a horcajadas de tierra a tierra;Aquí en nuestras puertas del ocaso bañadas por el mar se yergue.Una poderosa mujer con una antorcha cuya llamaEs el relámpago aprisionado.Y su nombre…Escúchame Estados Unidos de América.Su nombre es Madre de los Desterrados. Desde el faro de su manoBrilla la bienvenida para todo el mundo; sus templados ojos dominanLas ciudades gemelas que enmarcan el puerto de aéreos puentes.Y esto es lo que ella dice:“¡Guardaos, tierras antiguas, vuestra pompa legendaria!” grita ella.“¡Dadme a vuestros rendidos, a vuestros pobresVuestras masas hacinadas anhelando respirar en libertadEl desamparado desecho de vuestras rebosantes playasEnviadme a estos, los desamparados, sacudidos por las tempestades a mí.¡Yo elevo mi faro detrás de la puerta dorada!”¡Estados Unidos de América! ¡Estados Unidos América! Significa bienvenidos! ¡Bienvenidos! ¡Vengan, hijos de Dios! Estados Unidos de América significa bienvenida. Venimos porque somos personas de amor. Amamos a quienes buscan refugio de la guerra, la violencia y las dificultades. Venimos porque queremos que Estados Unidos sea realmente grandioso. Alexis de Tocqueville vino y pasó un tiempo en los Estados Unidos durante el siglo XIX. Viajó por el territorio, y se encontró y escuchó a los pueblos de esa tierra, a los pueblos originarios de las tierras. Las otras personas que no eran indígenas, o nativos, que emigraron al territorio – que alguien me ayude – toda la gente que conoció, conoció a esclavos y esclavos libertos, conoció a nativos americanos y su gente, conoció a estadounidenses europeos que habían venido hasta aquí, huyendo del hambre, huyendo de la persecución, se encontró con los pueblos de Estados Unidos de América, y de Tocqueville escribió, y cito: “Este país es grande porque es bueno”. ¡Hagamos que Estados Unidos vuelva a ser grandioso, al hacer que Estados Unidos sea bueno, al hacer que los Estados Unidos sea amable, al hacer que Estados Unidos sea justo, al hacer que Estados Unidos ame! ¡Hagamos que Estados Unidos sea grandioso otra vez!¡Dios les ama! ¡Dios les bendiga! Y no se rindan, ¡no se cansen! ¡Dios les bendiga!

Zoopla overtakes Rightmove, but not the way you’re thinking

first_imgZoopla is to hire 120 extra staff next year, taking its head count to over 750 people across the UK, the portal has announced and making it a larger employer than Rightmove which has 495 employees.The extra people are being hired to execute Zoopla’s growth plans set by its US owner, investment firm Silver Lake Partners, and will have a tech focus including a need for software engineers, user experience professionals and data analysis specialists.But the company is also bolstering its marketing, customer success and other business support functions, and says it want to ‘reinvigorate’ the home buying process and offer a better experience for its agent customers.The new roles will be based primarily in London at its HQ (pictured, above) although extra roles will be created within its regional teams too.But the additional jobs being created in the capital are significant enough to garner political support from London’s Deputy Mayor for Business Rajesh Agrawal (left).“The fact that Zoopla is expanding and creating these new roles is great news, and is further evidence that London is open for business,” he says.The extra staff will add considerable costs to Zoopla’s bottom line; many of the roles will be technology jobs and the UK currently faces a shortage of software engineers. Employers are having to offer higher and higher salaries to lure talent.Zoopla employees already receive a competitive salary alongside other benefits including posh offices, free breakfast and snacks, an in-office gym and a minimum of 25 days leave per year.“We are looking for highly-skilled experts who are seeking a once-in-a-career opportunity to reimagine an entire industry,” says its Chief Technology Officer, Dave Wascha.Rightmove Zoopla December 13, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Go fund to help Hoboken crossing guards

first_imgDear EditorRecently a group of Hoboken residents have started a go fund me page to help Hoboken Crossing guards purchase footwear appropriate for foul weather. The effort raised $4900,slightly more than the $4500 they were seeking. While I applaud this compassionate effort, I think we need to address the underlying issue in that leaves our workers relying on charity for good shoes. We live in one of the richest towns in one of the richest states in one of the richest nations on earth. Our school district is consistently in the top 5 in the state for per pupil spending. In spite of our tremendous wealth, both the city of Hoboken and the School District have refused to agree to a $15 minimum wage for hourly workers.Both entities continue to lavish excessive sums on patronage, contracts to connected individuals, and silly pet projects. People who work a few hours a day as a crossing guard should not make enough to live in the lap of luxury but paying such a meager wage that crossing guards need to rely on charity to obtain good shoes is wrong. Decent, hard working people should be a higher priority than the consultants, the vanity projects, and the patronage. Jersey City, which is by no means as rich as Hoboken has admirably chosen to move toward a $15 minimum hourly wage. We should follow their lead.last_img read more

North Bergen police arrest man for alleged attempted human trafficking

first_imgNORTH BERGEN – Police have arrested a New York man who they allege was trying to lure young girls into prostitution, according to a department press release.North Bergen Board of Education employees recently alerted officers of suspicious flyers posted along JFK Boulevard, near the high school. These flyers reportedly sought young females to work for a production company paying up to $600/hr in cash, the release said.Police began an investigation, suspecting the flyers were actually an effort to lure young women for sex work. A detective gained contact with a suspect behind the flyers, posing as a 15-year-old girl. The police allege the suspect communicated with the detective via text and invited her to meet at a local motel to make a pornographic film.After a three day investigation, conducted with the Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office Special Victims Unit, the New Jersey State Police Trafficking North Unit and the FBI Violent Crimes Task Force, Newark Division, officers arrested Mark Piotti, 37, of the Bronx on May 20. He was allegedly in possession of a video camera at the time.Piotti is charged with attempted human trafficking, promoting prostitution, and luring and enticing a child. Piotti was transported to Hudson County Jail. ×last_img read more

Sen. Young: Incredibly talented potential nominees, including Judge Amy Coney Barrett

first_img WhatsApp Twitter Google+ Facebook Pinterest Sen. Young: Incredibly talented potential nominees, including Judge Amy Coney Barrett Facebook Google+ IndianaLocalNews Twitter (Photo supplied/U.S. Senator Todd Young) Sen. Todd Young says he believes the Senate should act once the president announces his nominee for the next justice to serve on the Unites States Supreme Court, Saturday.Young, a Republican, said he would dutifully evaluate the nominee’s qualifications, but that he believes there’s precedent to support the quick action of the president in appointing someone to serve, following the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.“When this Republican President was elected in 2016, and when the American people expanded the Republican majority in the Senate elections of 2018, the expectation of the American people was that should a Supreme Court vacancy arise that that vacancy should be filled,” said Young, in a Tuesday news conference in Washington.Young said he believes Hoosiers want him to act, so he will.“The President has put forward a list of incredibly talented potential nominees, including Indiana’s own Judge Amy Coney Barrett, but I think any of the judges that the President has been discussing in recent days would be an excellent choice. It is my intention to dutifully evaluate the records of whoever the President ultimately nominates and to ensure bold action following his nomination.”Young said he believes the American people will “be proud of” whomever is nominated and is ultimately appointed to the country’s highest court.Sen. Mike Braun, Indiana’s junior senator, also a Republican, said in a Tuesday conference call that he is also in favor of a justice being appointed before the presidential election, and he favors Barrett.
