Tout le monde se pose les mêmes questions, quel avenir sera réservé à notre ville si personne ne prend de décision concrète ? Quels solutions sont envisageables pour redorer l’image de la ville ? Comment remédier au fléau migratoire ?

Calais est plongée depuis approximativement une quinzaine d’années dans le cercle vicieux de l’immigration clandestine et des réseaux de passeurs. La France entière est au courant de ce qu’il se passe dans la ville, mais personne ne sait comment les habitants le vivent. Dans notre moyenne ville de 70 000 habitants se trouve un peu plus de 1 500 migrants clandestins bloqués dans l’attente de l’eldorado anglais. Ils souhaitent, pour la plupart d’entre-eux, atteindre l’Angleterre afin de fuir leur pays comme de bons patriotes. Ces clandestins viennent principalement des pays extra-européens comme l’Afghanistan, l’Érythrée, l’Irak, la Syrie, ou encore le Soudan. Le nombre de migrants clandestins dans la ville peut…

Democrats Relying On Big Donors To Win

” Democrats love to cast Republicans as the party of big money, beholden to the out-of-touch billionaires bankrolling their campaigns. But new numbers tell a very different story — one in which Democrats are actually raising more big money than their adversaries.

  Among the groups reporting the biggest political ad spending, the 15 top Democrat-aligned committees have outraised the 15 top Republican ones $453 million to $289 million in the 2014 cycle, according to a POLITICO analysis of the most recent Federal Election Commission reports, including those filed over the weekend — which cover through the end of last month.

  The analysis shows the fundraising edge widening in August, when the Democratic groups pulled in more than twice as much as their GOP counterparts — $51 million to $21 million. That’s thanks to a spike in massive checks from increasingly energized

Again, Christianity asserts that every individual human being is going to live for ever, and this must be either true or false.  . . .  And immortality makes this other difference, which, by the by, has a connection with the difference between totalitarianism and democracy.  If individuals live only seventy years, then a state, or a nation, or a civilisation, which may last for a thousand years, is more important than an individual.  But if Christianity is true, then the individual is not only more important but incomparably more important, for he is everlasting and the life of the state or civilisation, compared with his, is only a moment.

This weekend I came across yet another text on the Thirty-Nine Articles, and this one, Elements of Christian Theology, is different in that it is Volume 2 of a larger theological work by George Pretyman Tomline, who was Bishop of Lincoln and then Bishop of Winchester.  He is also High Church and Laudian in his approach to doctrine, and it is striking to me that in this work, first published in 1799 (though this edition is a version published in 1843 with annotations by Henry Stebbing), the author is quite consistent with more reformed expositors of the Articles in how he views Article XXII.  For example, this is what he says about “invocation of the saints”:

A very little inquiry will convince us that there is no foundation whatever for this doctrine in Scripture. We are commanded to offer our prayers to God through Christ alone. ‘There is…
