50 Redundant Phrases to AvoidBy Mark Nichol - 4 minute reading

In conversation, it’s easy in the midst of spontaneous speech to succumb to verbosity and duplication. In writing, redundancy is less forgivable but fortunately easy to rectify. Watch out for these usual suspects: 1. Absolutely certain or sure/essential/guaranteed: Someone who is certain or sure is already without doubt. Something that is essential is intrinsically absolute. A guarantee is by nature absolute (or should be). Abandon absolutely in such usage. 2. Actual experience/fact: An experience is something that occurred (unless otherwise indicated).

Pope Francis: Catholic women call on Holy Father to do something about sex abuse scandal


Catholic women are calling on Pope Francis to do something about the ongoing sex abuse scandal.
In August 2018, the papacy and the entire Roman Catholic church was hit by claims of a cover-up for the then-Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, who has been accused of abusive behavior with seminarians since at least 2000. This claim was made in a 7000-word letter by Archbishop Carlo Maria ViganĆ². He wrote, " Pope Francis must be the first to set a good example for cardinals and bishops who covered up McCarrick's abuses and resign along with all of them." Reacting to this allegation, over 44,000 Catholic women have signed a letter calling on the Pope to offer much-needed answers. In the letter, organized by the Catholic Women's Forum, they say, "Our hearts are broken, our faith tested, by the escalating crisis engulfing our beloved Church." It adds, "We are angry, betray…

Robert Powell's the bloke who played "Jesus" in the movie,"Jesus of Nazareth" (1977) told people to stop worshiping him as if he is the real Jesus.
​I am here to straighten a fact that has been exasperating me for a while now seeing numerous people insinuating some handsome white men to be Jesus. Who knows whether he was black or white? But it's not about colour, it's about; almost unforgivable intentional identity mistake. See Also: Kenyans are bullies: Why being a celebrity in Kenya is not for the faint hearted Hey! These are actors either driven by the passion to play "Jesus role" and give a succinct pictorial representation of the Bible content or simply to make a living out of it all. Nothing untoward about it, that's okay. My first point.".....Stop displaying my photos in places of worship, schools, offices, cars etcetera...." He …
