Greenwood Cemetery, Birmingham, AL – 16th Street Bombing Victims

Views:1623|Rating:4.00|View Time:4:7Minutes|Likes:8|Dislikes:2
When Greenwood’s owners went bankrupt, they abandoned the grounds, leaving the cemetery marred by exposed bones, sunken graves and toppled tombstones. The city took over Greenwood in the 1990’s, sponsoring several cleanups and paving a road there.

I have tried to research the history about this cemetery but have only discovered that it is the oldest African-American cemetery either in AL or in Birmingham. There isn’t much information available on-line. I have read good and bad about this cemetery. However when I visited in July of 2013, expecting the worst, the grass was cut and landscaping neat. It was clean and I didn’t see trash about. It appeared that the city is doing their best to maintain perpetual care. I’ve seen much worse.

What makes this cemetery special, is that there are three of the 16th Street Baptist Church murdered victims buried there. Without an office to ask for help, I was luck that after walking around for a while I was able to locate their graves.

It was thirty years before Addie’s sisters could bear to visit her grave, and when they saw its neglected state, they immediately arranged to have Addie Mae moved to another, better maintained cemetery. However, workers who opened the grave recoiled in shock: It was empty devoid of casket and corpse. No one can know with certainty who took the body or why.

Bishop addresses $20M settlement between diocese and sexual abuse victims

Views:80|Rating:5.00|View Time:1:30Minutes|Likes:1|Dislikes:0
On Tuesday, a Butte bankruptcy judge approved a $20 million settlement between the Roman Catholic Diocese of Great Falls-Billings and victims of clergy sexual abuse.

The lawsuit alleged multiple priests and nuns in the diocese sexually abused children for decades. The seven-year-old lawsuit includes 86 plaintiffs.

The diocese filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in March 2017, months before jury trials for victims’ civil cases were set to begin.

One year later, the diocese filed to dismiss the bankruptcy.

Bishop Michael Warfel said then that the legal case was draining too many church resources that could go to the victims.

The bishop called the settlement another step in a long process.

“Some people I guess would think it should be celebratory in that it was approved,” he said. “I see it more as a matter of one more step along the process. There’s still some documents that need to be signed because of amendments to what was presented. I see it as there’s a lot of challenges ahead.”

Bishop Warfel added that the monetary part of the settlement should be distributed in about a month. Money for the settlement will come from a series of sources including $4 million from parishes, $8 million from the liability insurer for the diocese, and from sales of diocesan properties.

As part of the settlement, the diocese agreed to post on its website a list of all known past and present clergy members who have been identified by victims, develop a whistleblower policy, and all victims of abuse would be allowed to tell their story.

Proposed Settlement Funding Contributions
Catholic Mutual – $8 million
Diocesan Savings in Deposit & Loan Fund – $250,000
Sale of Villa Apts in Great Falls – $1,500,000
Sale of Great Falls property – $1,000,000
Sale of Billings lots – $250,000
Transfer Parish Past-Dues to DLF Loans – $1,000,000
St. Labre Contribution – $1,000,000
Catholic Foundation of Eastern MT (CFEM) contribution – $1,000,000
Capital Asset Support Corp (CASC) contribution – $2,000,000
Parish contribution – $4,000,000

Lakewood Church, Houston, Texas pass buckets asking Hurricane Harvey victims for money

This clip has been taken from the Lakewood Church, Houston, Texas website, it’s the service for Wednesday service August 30th 2017, which they have now deleted from their website. In this video you can see Lakewood Church passing out collection buckets, at the end of the service to congregants who are hurricane Harvey victims. The pastors offered prayer, but never any financial assistance to hurricane Harvey victims, and the preaching suggests that hurricane Harvey evacuees should move on quickly, out and away from the church after the service, so that they will not become a burden to the multi-millionaire leaders of this vile “church.” Although I do not own this clip, I offer it (obviously) for educational purposes, under sections 107 to 117 of the United States Fair Use Act of 1976.
