Ocho de los diez profesores a tiempo completo han enviado carta a la junta de síndicos protestando por el estilo rígido del deán, su hábito de “usar lenguaje vulgar” y utilizar amenazas de dejar cesante a los que no estén de acuerdo con sus decisiones. Varias reuniones entre las partes litigantes no han producido resultados positivos. Los cinco profesores han sido avisados de que sus servicios ya no son necesarios. La situación es tal que posiblemente el asunto sea llevado a la corte. Observadores de la escena dicen que la cuestión de la sexualidad humana es parte del problema. “No queremos que este seminario sea conocido como un seminario gay”, dijo un profesor. El seminario ha graduado unos 7 mil estudiantes desde su fundación.Katharine Jefferts Schori, obispa primada de la Iglesia Episcopal, ha anunciado que no tratará de servir otro mandato de nueve años, aunque los cánones lo permiten. Ella fue electa en el verano de 2006 por la Cámara de Obispos y ratificada por la Cámara de Diputados en la misma Convención General celebrada en Columbus, Ohio. La obispa tiene 60 años de edad. Desde ya se están haciendo los preparativos para elegir a su sucesora o sucesor.Un año después de la masacre se ha sabido que una bomba explotó en la Iglesia Anglicana de Todos los Santos en Peshawar, Pakistán, matando a 127 personas e hiriendo a 170. Las víctimas fueron principalmente mujeres y niños. El obispo Samuel Azariah dijo que se cree que los autores fueron extremistas religiosos. Añadió que pese a la situación y las amenazas la iglesia sigue creciendo. Los cristianos constituyen el 1.5 por ciento de los 189 millones de habitantes de Pakistán.Una sentencia judicial que ordena en Sudán la flagelación y pena de muerte para Meriam Yehia Ibrahim Ishag ha suscitado una ola de protestas alrededor del mundo. La mujer de 27 años ha sido acusada de convertirse del islam al cristianismo y haber cometido adulterio al casarse con un hombre cristiano. Uno de los signatarios de la protesta es el Secretario General del Consejo Mundial de Iglesias, Olav Fykse Tveit.Que una aerolínea atrase la salida de un vuelo no es noticia. No así lo que le pasó a un vuelo de El Al la aerolínea israelí saliendo de Tel Aviv. Un pasajero judío rehusó sentarse porque iba a tener de compañera de viaje a una mujer y eso era contrario a su religión ultra-ortodoxa. Después de una discusión la azafata logró encontrarle un asiento al caballero que no quería contacto con las mujeres. Hay de todo en este mundo.Kieran Conry, obispo católico romano de 63 años de la diócesis de Arundel y Brighton en Irlanda ha sido destituido por el papa Francisco por su propia admisión de que tenía amores con una dama de su diócesis. “Siento mucho que he faltado a mis promesas de ordenación”, dijo el obispo. Semanas más tarde el tabloide The Mail publicó fotos del prelado vestido de civil y de brazos con una dama 20 años más joven que él. Tan malo es pasarse como no llegar.Recientemente, Ronald Gainer, obispo católico romano de Harrisburg, Pensilvania, decretó que en su diócesis “no están permitidos” juegos de fútbol entre equipos masculinos y femeninos de colegios católicos porque esto da “la posibilidad de contacto físico inmodesto”.El prefecto de la Congregación para la Doctrina de la Fe, cardenal Gerhard Müller, ha dicho que la Conferencia de Liderazgos de Mujeres Religiosas (LCWR, por su sigla en inglés), que promueven el feminismo radical y posturas contrarias a la doctrina católica en Estados Unidos, podrían extinguirse si no cambian de actitud.El dictador haitiano Jean-Claude Duvalier ha fallecido a la edad de 63 años en Puerto Príncipe de un ataque al corazón. Gobernó al país caribeño con mano dura desde 1971 hasta 1986, cuando fue derrocado por una revuelta popular. Antiguo estudiante de Medicina, heredó el poder de su padre, el dictador François Duvalier, a los 19 años, lo que le valió el sobrenombre de ‘Baby Doc’. Regresó por sorpresa a Haití en el 2011 después de 25 años de exilio en Francia. Estaba acusado de crímenes de lesa humanidad y desvío de fondos públicos entre 300 y 800 millones de dólares.MANDAMIENTO DIVINO. No robarás.

Gibson raring to go for Ireland

first_img He said: “Being out for 10 months last season gave me a lot of time to think about things, and I think this is now or never, really, to be honest with you, so I am looking forward to the task ahead. “It just made me realise that I’m not getting any younger. I need to start playing games and I need to start doing well for myself. It’s a big opportunity for me.” Gibson’s misfortune struck in October last year when he collapsed in agony during the first half of Ireland’s 3-1 World Cup qualifier victory over Kazakhstan and was carried from the field on a stretcher. Scans quickly confirmed damage to his anterior cruciate ligament, condemning him to surgery and a lengthy period of rehabilitation. The former Manchester United midfielder had only just returned to the Republic fold having been recalled by caretaker manager Noel King following Trapattoni’s exit. Gibson travelled to the Euro 2012 finals, but did not taste a single minute of action in Poland and Ukraine, and his response was to reluctantly make himself unavailable to his country. As a result, he is eager to make up for lost time with the Euro 2016 qualifying campaign due to get under way in Georgia on Sunday. Gibson said: “It was the second game back, wasn’t it? It was tough for me, I was devastated when I did it. But the staff and players at Everton helped me through it. Darron Gibson admits it is a case of “now or never” as he attempts to establish himself as a regular in the Republic of Ireland team. The 26-year-old Everton midfielder will pull on the green shirt for Wednesday night’s friendly against Oman at the Aviva Stadium 10 months after his last appearance there ended in agony as he suffered the cruciate ligament injury which has sidelined him for much of the intervening period. Injuries and Gibson’s disenchantment with former manager Giovanni Trapattoni have limited the senior international career to 21 caps, and he knows his latest opportunity under current boss Martin O’Neill is one he cannot afford to pass up. “Being out for 10 months is tough. The hardest thing was going every week to Goodison [Park] and watching the lads knowing I should have been playing, and there was not really much I could do about it. “But the physios are good there and the staff are good, and they helped me through it. “It is very hard. You want to be playing and training every day. It takes a bit of getting used to, but after a couple of months, I got round the idea that it was a long-term injury and I just got my head down and focussed on getting through it, and thankfully I’ve come out the other end.” O’Neill, who replaced Trapattoni in November last year, will have Gibson at his disposal for the first time on Wednesday evening, and he is looking forward to having another potential key player in his squad. The 62-year-old said: “He’s obviously a very, very decent footballer. He hasn’t played that much, but he’s a very, very talented player. He looks comfortable, he looks in really decent shape. I am actually looking forward to seeing him play. “Whether he thinks half of a game or something like that is enough for him, I don’t know – most players always feel they are properly fit and fine. These are the sort of decisions that the two of us will consider, maybe not just necessarily for this game, but for the tournament ahead. “Ideally, he would like to break in and get into Everton’s side – I think he is pretty well close to that – and that would be good, that would be great. But he is just coming back from long-term injury, so I think it’s just a matter of taking a little bit of time.” Gibson, who has spent the last few days working with boyhood hero Roy Keane in Malahide, could be forgiven for dreading a return to the spot on the Aviva pitch where injury struck, but he insists it will not be on his mind at all. He said: “I have thought about it, to be honest with you, but no, I don’t think there’s any point. I am past the injury and my knee feels good, so I will not be thinking about it when I get on to the pitch. “I know exactly where it is, but I will not be thinking about it.” Press Associationlast_img read more
