Welcome to the Freethought Forum
The lofty high Renaissance and marked mannerism. The heavy and ornate Baroque era, followed by the gentle Rococo. Harsh neo-classicism, rich romanticism, lush naturalism, stern realism, blurred impressionism. Heady surrealism, blockish cubism, postwar Dada, pointy-cornered art deco and cookie cutter Bauhaus. Let us skip the dreariness of the past half century and arrive finally at FF Style.

I'm not surprised the "richest" cities have the worst homeless/drug/criminal problems
Mar 01, 2024 - 5:12 PM - by -FX-
Willie Sutton said the reason for robbing banks was: “Because that's where the money is.”

The book about him, Where the Money Was echoed this sentiment.

It's no surprise the criminals, beggars, drug addicts and the homeless are taking a shit on the sidewalk in wealthy areas. Setting up tent cities and enjoying the climate in California, Phoenix or Denver.

Or in any liberal run city.

If a city or state hands out free money, drugs and won't arrest you for crime, it's no surprise where the criminals will end up.

Child Rape International's Chicago office having legal trouble
Mar 01, 2024 - 3:52 PM - by Pete Ross Junior
This Chicago-based Catholic order is keeping secrets about child-molesting clergy around the United States - Chicago Sun-Times

Quote:
Key findings
  • The Order of Friar Servants of Mary, commonly known as the Servites, has its U.S. headquarters in Chicago, but it maintains no public list of credibly accused members despite calls for transparency.
  • One church watchdog group counts 11 Servites accused of child sex abuse over the years, and the order has been accused of covering up for some offenders.
  • Ther are at least nine pending lawsuits against the Servites stemming from alleged abuse by a former Chicago priest who allegedly molested numerous children in California years ago.
  • A California law that temporarily lifted the statute of limitations on child sex abuse claims has flooded the courts there, and the impact is being felt in Chicago.
  • Public lists of credibly accused clergy maintained by the Archdiocese of Chicago and the Diocese of Rockford omit as many as four Servites.
