Stories of the Week
Summary: In a disturbing new report, CNN has revealed the bizarre practices of the strange cult Amy Coney Berrett belongs to. Known to some as "Christendom," it features many ancient rituals that were recorded by undercover CNN journalists at a strange stone building on Sunday where the ceremonies were held. Secret cameras showed Amy Coney Barrett kneeling before a priest-type figure as he recited some kind of incantation in a dead tongue. The priest then held up a round wafer and a goblet of red liquid which he announced to be the true body and blood of a Jewish rabbi who died 2000 years ago.They then brought a newborn baby to a basin of water and attempted to drown it.
She has 7 children, 2 adopted Haitan children. Some people call that potentially problematic like Director Of Antiracist Research @ Boston University Ibram X. Kendi (TIME lists him in the top 100 most influential ppl…) saying White colonizers ‘adopted’ blacks and ‘civilized’ them to use as props..
She belongs to a charismatic Catholic church called “People of Praise”
Newsweek published and then “corrected” a headline stating that her church inspired The Handmaid's Tale

Summary: California, a state with no electricity, has ordered everyone to drive cars that run on electricity. Well, how dya like that
