Car wash to benefit family of slain Kirkwood teen

Wednesday, 26 June 2013 14:30 Published in Local News

A car wash is set for this weekend that will benefit the family of a slain Kirkwood teen.

Brandon Richards was murdered earlier this month. Two other teens, 19-year-old Nicholas Luncerford and 18-year-old Keenan Miller, were charged with his murder.

The benefit will run from 10 AM to 6 PM on Saturday at the Kirkwood Early Childhood Center on 100 North Sappington Road in. The event will feature food, treats, face painting, games, a football game, and shirts & bracelets for sale. 

 

ATTLEBORO, Mass. (AP) - Police have charged Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez with murder and weapons counts in connection with the slaying of a semi-pro football player whose body was found in an industrial park about a mile from Hernandez's home.

 

   The charge was revealed Wednesday in Attleboro District Court after Hernandez was arrested at his sprawling North Attleborough home. Less than two hours after his arrest, the Patriots cut Hernandez from the team.

 

   The investigation started more than a week ago after semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd was found slain in an industrial park in North Attleborough, on the Rhode Island line not far from where the Patriots play.

 

   Lloyd's family says he and Hernandez were friends and that Lloyd's girlfriend and Hernandez's fiancee are sisters.

St. Louis Archdiocese issues statement on DOMA ruling

Wednesday, 26 June 2013 12:28 Published in Local News

The Supreme Court invalidated parts of the Defense of Marriage Act, but the Archdiocese of St. Louis is standing firm on its opposition of gay marriage.

The Archdiocese says in a statement that "marriage predates both the U.S. government and Western civilization". The statement also states the ruling does not change the Archdiocese "responsiblity to defend marriage as being between one man and one woman".

Wednesday's ruling allows same-sex couples to receive the same federal benefits as heterosexual couples.

The full statement from the Archdiocese is below:

The Supreme Court’s decision to strike down the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and to dismiss the California Proposition 8 appeal does not change the reality of marriage, nor does it change the Archdiocese of St. Louis's responsibility to defend marriage as being between one man and one woman. It is important to note that marriage predates both the U.S. government and Western civilization.

 

 From a Catholic perspective, it is not enough to offer the Church’s position on same-sex union without also saying how it fits into a broader understanding of the sacrament of marriage, human sexuality, and the Gospel of Life as taught by Blessed John Paul II. The vocation to serve God and society through married life is a sacred union in which man and woman become one flesh. The Catholic Church does not condemn individuals for having same-sex attraction. She teaches that all people are called to responsibility regarding sexuality. The sexual union of a man and woman, when not obstructed by contraceptives, is the kind that is open to life even if new life is not the result.

 

 We understand that married persons imitate the way Christ offers His body completely and permanently to the Church so that we might have life, and have it abundantly. This truth is written into our bodies as well as on the pages of the Old and New Testaments. While the law can allow other things to be called marriage, it cannot make them into the kind of union that is marriage.
