Vermont: Senator, bishop, faith leaders discuss economic justice

Rector Tampa, FL Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT August 14, 2014 at 6:51 am I am not convinced that the efforts of our politicians and religious leaders to get us to covet our neighbors’ property have made us as morally superior as we like to think. There is an enormous ethical difference between giving to the poor and using the power of government to compel others to give to the poor. David S. Benedict says: June 24, 2014 at 5:15 pm As a fellow Episcopalian in Williamsburg, VA and member of the Greater Williamsburg Outreach Mission to the those citizens who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless, I hope Bishop Ely will take his thoughtful statement to the Council of Bishops of the Episcopal Church in American that all members of our denomination will engage the rest of the faith community via the National and World Council of Churches, and make this matter of income inequality a united push to move towards economic justice across all natiional boundaries.

Sanders was mayor of Burlington and now lives in NJ in the Diocese of Newark, I will admit that I have never liked Sen. Sanders. As a retired member of the US armed forces and a political conservative, I detest Sanders’ socialism and his constant carping about the inequality of our economic system. For one thing, his senator’s salary of $174,000 per year places him in the top 5% of earners in America. Secondly and unlike most Americans, his career as a US Congressmen and Senator means he will have a guaranteed lifetime pension that equals his current salary. Who else in America has that? Very few these days.Senator Sanders and other statists of his ilk continue to rail against income equality when it is the very policies of an over-reaching federal government that has contributed to this state of affairs. Obama, Pelosi and Reid are all individually wealthy by anyone’s standards, yet few of them have run a business, made a payroll or created so much as a single job whereby another American can make a living. Sanders in his own way is the same. They believe they have the right to deny Americans basic individual liberties for the greater good and in the process confiscate our wealth via excessive taxation, over-regulation and the use of coercive force against people who dare to disagree with them.Sanders and statists like him believe they have a right to take by force (via government mandates, regulations and laws) from the productive people of America and convey the benefits of that productivity on those who have largely produced nothing. I categorically reject that method of thinking and will do all in my power to resist it. The people of the state of Vermont have collectively proven, as have the residents of the other New England and mid-Atlantic states that they are no longer a real part of the productive engine of America – they did so by electing Sanders & Leahey, Markey and Warren in MA, Reed in RI, Blumenthal in CT, Schumer and Gillibrand in NY, Menendez and Booker in NJ, and others of their re-distributionist ilk in Delaware, MD and even Virginia.Senator Sanders and the national Episcopal Church have also deliberately forgotten that without a system that creates wealth that there is no wealth for them to coercively redistribute and that is why those of us who oppose them and larger, more intrusive and coercive government speak out as vocally as we do.Income inequality has been part of man’s lot since the beginning of civilization. It is not the role of a representative, constitutional government to take from one party to bestow on another simply to curry favor with the latter and to create a permanent class of serfs, unable to provide for themselves.If there were ever a set of issues that would drive me out of the ECUSA, it is the social justice movement that is based in liberal orthodoxy and self-deception. Then again, if one listens to people like the Presiding Bishop, Katharine Jefferts-Schiori, people like me no longer belong in the Episcopal Church. She may have a point after all; over the last several years I am reminded of a comment made by life -long Episcopalian, the late Charlton Heston when asked why he left the Democrat Party and became a conservative. “I did not leave the Democrat Party, it left me.”I am sure many former Episcopalians feel the same way about the church they grew up in and sadly, felt compelled to leave.

With each passing year TEC is looking more and more like just a wing of the DNC in its activities and its rhetoric. Economic inequality is just one of many examples. And our esteemed PB has shown time and again her contempt for conservative members of this denomination by hauling into court conservative parishes that chose to break away because most of the members of the congregation felt TEC had simply become too leftward-leaning. Her message to them was and still is, you can leave if you want but no way are you keeping the property. Time and again I have said and will continue to say, progressive/liberalism has become the unofficial sacrament of the Episcopal Church and sadly, it’s here to stay.

Lynn Bujnak, U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders, Bishop Thomas Ely and Rabbi Joshua Chasan. Photo: Episcopal Diocese of Vermont[Episcopal Diocese of Vermont] On June 20, U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) held a news conference with Vermont religious leaders to discuss the moral implications of extreme wealth and income inequality. Bishop Thomas Ely, Rabbi Joshua Chasan, the Rev. Lynn Bujnak, and Monsignor Roland Rivard were present, as well as several other Episcopal clergy and faith leaders.Bishop Ely’s participation in this news conference is in keeping with the resolution on the subject of economic justice and income inequality passed at The Episcopal Church in Vermont’s 2013 Diocesan Convention.Below is the transcript of Bishop Ely’s statement:Thank you Senator Sanders.Thank you for your advocacy on so many important issues and especially your leadership in the area of economic justice and income inequality. I am glad to add my voice to yours and these distinguished colleagues who provide important leadership and direction in our Vermont faith communities.The President has called income disparity “the defining challenge of our time.” He speaks an important truth to us. Economic justice and income inequality are indeed moral issues of immediate and urgent concern and present us with important choices about how we will live and how we will act.Many years ago Supreme Court Justice Brandies declared “We may have democracy, or we may have wealth concentrated in the hands of a few, but we cannot have both.” Evidence suggests that inequality is not only corroding our political system but eroding social cohesion as well.The systematic undermining of the middle class has had serious consequences for the preservation of families, health, education and employment and even greater consequences for those in the bottom 30%. Social unrest is a growing possibility.Our financial system has become deeply distorted: financial institutions that are “too big to fail,” investment instruments few can understand, and pervasive conflicts of interests that are threatening the ongoing ecological stability of our world all contribute to this reality.The suffering and overpowered majority will continue to lose the struggle for jobs, affordable housing, education, retirement security, and a sustainable environment if we keep silent. This situation cries out for us to open our eyes, ears, minds and hearts to this growing bitter reality. The excesses of the sin of avarice, of greed, along with the sin of pride, are at work in our midst and have the potential to destroy so much of what we cherish.These are critical ethical issues, touching on our obligations to each other as human beings, and therefore central to our faith traditions. We as faith community leaders have a responsibility to provide leadership on these moral issues, which have such a direct impact on so many of our fellow Vermonters.The people of the Episcopal Church in Vermont have called upon our Presiding Bishop, The Most Reverend Katharine Jefferts Schori to convene a nationwide interfaith coalition to provide moral leadership for the establishment of economic justice in our country. We have also adopted a statement on Economic Justice and Income Inequality prepared by our leadership Council (and available on our website). And, in a concrete effort to put our faith and conviction into action, our annual Convention urged all our congregations, as well as the bishop’s office, to pay all lay employees an hourly livable wage appropriate for the State of Vermont.For me, the call to engage this challenge is grounded in the words Jesus used to summarize the commandments that informed his faith, as well as the great Hebrew prophets before him, and which is expressed this way in the Gospel according to Matthew: You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. (Matthew 22:36-40)Borrowing from the teaching of Archbishop Rowan Williams in his book Faith in the Marketplace, we are reminded that maintaining wealth at the cost of our neighbor’s disadvantage, or worse, is inhumane – what the other finds painful I should find painful too. True love of neighbor is the moral and ethical imperative that can lead us from greed to generosity, from economic disparity to economic justice.©The Right Reverend Thomas C.

Good Timing: Orange County Fire Rescue and Apopka Fire Department join…

first_img Please enter your comment! From Orange County Commissioner Rod Love District 2 Orange County Commissioner Rod LoveThis week, Orange County Fire Rescue and Apopka Fire Department hosted a community meeting to address questions, concerns and provide information to residents regarding the proposed inter-local agreement between the two agencies. As a recap and follow-up to last week’s articles published in The Apopka Chief and The Apopka Voice, with the location of Apopka Fire Station 2 (Welch Rd.), recent opening of Fire Station #5 (FS 5) (Firehouse Lane) and the continued growth /annexations to the north has caused a reduction of the service area at Orange County Station #29 (FS 29). Orange County Fire Rescue approached the City of Apopka with a proposal for Apopka to take over fire-rescue services for the area currently serviced by FS 29 located on Kelly Park Road. After several months of negotiations, both agencies agreed upon a service plan for the Apopka Fire Department to provide coverage of the existing FS 29 area and plan for the Department to provide coverage of the existing FS 29 area and a means to provide automatic-aid (backup) to areas where FS 29 would normally respond. Over the last few years, the Apopka Fire Department has enhanced its infrastructure by opening two fire stations. Apopka FS 5 is in close proximity to FS 29’s coverage area and has the resources to provide fire and emergency services with a reduction in response time of approximately 15 percent. The potential for reduced response time, coupled with the diminishing coverage area of FS 29, has led the proposed transition of fire and emergency services to the Apopka Fire Department for this service area.Some of the primary concerns that residents had were how this proposed transition would affect municipal service taxes for fire and emergency services paid for by Orange County and City of Apopka residents; effect on response time; effect on EMS transport fees for residents living in unincorporated parts of Apopka; and possible impact on Insurance Service Office (ISO) rating. In response, both agencies reassured residents that there would be no change to unincorporated Orange County residents who currently pay a municipal service tax for fire and emergency services. Funds collected by Orange County to support FS 29 operations will be transferred to the City of Apopka within the parameters of an inter-local agreement that would need to be approved by both parties. Additionally, the transition is expected to provide a 15 percent reduction in travel time. Travel time is the portion of a response time that is beyond the control of the first responders and includes things such as potential travel distance/traffic within a community. Furthermore, the proposed inter-local agreement dictates that residents and property owners within the contract area will only pay the City of Apopka rate, which is less than the rate charged for a non-resident. The City of Apopka rates are currently less than the Orange County Fire Rescue rate. Lastly, this proposed transition will not impact residents’ ISO ratings, where Orange County Fire Rescue and the City of Apopka Fire Department have a current ISO one rating.Both agencies also told residents in attendance at the meeting that no firefighters would lose their jobs as a result of the proposed transition; firefighters stationed at Orange County FS 29 will transition to work within other Orange County stations. In addition, any service, such as help with smoke alarms, that residents traditionally sought through FS 29 would be directed to their new community firehouse, which would be Apopka Fire Department’s FS 5 in this community. The proposed transition would not affect permitting through the fire marshal’s office, where permitting remains a function of the Orange County Office of the Fire Marshal.As mentioned in The Apopka Voice last week, Apopka Fire Chief Chuck Carnesale expressed how the improving working relationship between Orange County Fire Rescue and the Apopka Fire Department has been instrumental in creating the inter-local agreement. “Relations between AFD [Apopka Fire Department] and OCFR [Orange County Fire Rescue] have never been greater than they are now.” He said. “Over the last two years, we’ve worked great together. Apopka’s been assisting Orange County in joint response areas and doing whatever they need when they call us on for assistance. The dynamics between the two agencies are totally different now. It will be nice to know that if we have a catastrophic event, either agency will be there to help the other.”The proposed agreement was presented by both agencies and approved by the Apopka City Council on August 15th, 2018. A survey was distributed to attendees at the community meeting to express their thoughts on the proposed agreement. The results of the survey will be presented to the Orange County Board of County Commissioners when the proposed agreement comes before the Board on September 11th, 2018 for a final decision.

From French unions: ‘Solidarity with LGBT people’

first_imgThe following is a “statement in solidarity with LGBT people” from the CGT, the labor confederation in France that has been leading the demonstrations and general strikes opposing the new anti-labor law.Montreuil, France, June 13 — Once again, barbarism has struck, during a massacre in Orlando, Fla., USA, presently claimed by the Islamic State.Homophobia is at the root of this tragedy.Worldwide discrimination, violence and repression regarding sexual orientation and gender identity are still prevalent. Some countries still have laws that criminalize LGBT people.In France, through the power of demonstrations, the rights of LGBT people have made gains. Still not all rights have been gained or won, as inequalities persist in the workplace and in private life.The CGT is committed to campaign for equal rights and to actively fight all forms of discrimination, hatred and violence to which this bigotry leads.The CGT strongly supports trade unions and U.S. organizations that represent and defend the rights of LGBT people in the workplace and in life.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

USDA Announces Buy-Up Coverage Availability and New Service Fees for Noninsured…

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News USDA Announces Buy-Up Coverage Availability and New Service Fees for Noninsured Crop… Facebook Twitter By USDA Communications – Apr 9, 2019 USDA Announces Buy-Up Coverage Availability and New Service Fees for Noninsured Crop Coverage Policies SHARE USDA’s Farm Service Agency (FSA) today announced that higher levels of coverage will be offered through the Noninsured Crop Disaster Assistance Program (NAP), a popular safety net program, beginning April 8, 2019. The 2018 Farm Bill also increased service fees and made other changes to the program, including service fee waivers for qualified military veterans interested in obtaining NAP coverage.“When other insurance coverage is not an option, NAP is a valuable risk mitigation tool for farmers and ranchers,” said FSA Administrator Richard Fordyce. “In agriculture, losses from natural disasters are a matter of when, not if, and having a NAP policy provides a little peace of mind.”NAP provides financial assistance to producers of commercial crops for which insurance coverage is not available in order to protect against natural disasters that result in lower yields or crop losses, or prevent crop planting.NAP Buy-Up Coverage OptionThe 2018 Farm Bill reinstates higher levels of coverage, from 50 to 65 percent of expected production in 5 percent increments, at 100 percent of the average market price. Producers of organics and crops marketed directly to consumers also may exercise the “buy-up” option to obtain NAP coverage of 100 percent of the average market price at the coverage levels of between 50 and 65 percent of expected production. NAP basic coverage is available at 55 percent of the average market price for crop losses that exceed 50 percent of expected production.Producers have a one-time opportunity until May 24, 2019, to obtain buy-up coverage for 2019 or 2020 eligible crops for which the NAP application closing date has passed.Buy-up coverage is not available for crops intended for grazing.NAP Service FeesFor all coverage levels, the new NAP service fee is the lesser of $325 per crop or $825 per producer per county, not to exceed a total of $1,950 for a producer with farming interests in multiple counties. These amounts reflect a $75 service fee increase for crop, county or multi-county coverage. The fee increases apply to obtaining NAP coverage on crops on or after April 8, 2019.NAP Enhancements for Qualified Military VeteransThe 2018 Farm Bill NAP amendments specify that qualified veteran farmers or ranchers are now eligible for a service fee waiver and premium reduction, if the NAP applicant meets certain eligibility criteria.Beginning, limited resource and targeted underserved farmers or ranchers remain eligible for a waiver of NAP service fees and premium reduction when they file form CCC-860, “Socially Disadvantaged, Limited Resource and Beginning Farmer or Rancher Certification.”For NAP application, eligibility and related program information, visit www.fsa.usda.gov/nap or contact your local USDA Service Center.

News RSF_en As Wanadoo is on the point of announcing a partnership with Tunisia’s leading Internet operator, Reporters Without Borders points out that Tunisia censors the Internet and imprisons its users.Letter to Olivier Sichel, Director General of Wanadoo Dear Mr. Sichel,We have learned with amazement that the company you head will, in the coming days, announce the launch of a strategic partnership with the Tunisian Internet operator Planet. We are perfectly aware that Wanadoo is a private company and that it is not your job to defend human rights, but we believe that investing in the Tunisian Internet raises a number of ethical issues to which we would like to draw your attention. We are moreover convinced that you are unaware of the facts that we are going to present to you and that, once alerted, you will agree with us that this partnership will have a negative impact on the image of your company, in which the French state has a 40 per cent stake.As you surely do not know, the Tunisian government, after already completely gagging the traditional media, has set up a very effective system of Internet filtering. Using the Internet access provider Planet, your future partner, it blocks access to all the political websites critical of President Ben Ali, as well as those of the main international human rights organizations. Even the Reporters Without Borders site, www.rsf.org, has been inaccessible for years in Tunisia.As you surely do not know, a Tunisian lawyer, Mohammed Abou, has been imprisoned for more than a month for posting an article on the Internet about prison conditions for political detainees in Tunisia. At the same time that you are covering Tunis walls with posters announcing Wanadoo’s arrival in Tunisia, dozens of Tunisian lawyers are staging a sit-in at the bar association to demand their cyber-dissident colleague’s release.As you surely do not know, eight young Tunisian Internet users from the southern town of Zarzis received sentences of up to 26 years in prison for visiting websites considered illegal by the authorities. They are now languishing in prison in horrifying conditions.As you surely know, the Internet has become an essential vehicle for news and information, especially in countries where the traditional media are under the government’s control. Helping the Internet to grow in a developing country is obviously a laudable aim, but we must warn you that if you try to do this in Tunisia, you will have to accommodate to its government’s systematic violations of free expression.I hope this letter will have enlightened you as to a situation about which you were clearly unfamiliar. We remain at your disposal should you wish additional information.Sincerely,Robert MénardSecretary-General April 11, 2005 – Updated on January 25, 2016 Open letter to Wanadoo’s director general: “As you surely don’t know…”last_img read more
