Pope Honours French Priest: Killing In God’s Name ‘Satanic’

Published

on

Pope Francis on Wednesday denounced killing in God’s name as “satanic” as he held a mass to honour Jacques Hamel, the French priest whose throat was slit by jihadists in July. “Killing in God’s name is satanic,” he said in his address which was attended by around 80 pilgrims from the northern French diocese of Rouen where the attack took place.

“He was a martyr,” he said of Hamel, describing him as a “good, gentle man” who had been killed “like a criminal. “How good it would be if all religious confessions declared that killing in the name of God was satanic.”

The elderly priest was killed on July 26 while presiding over an early morning mass for a handful of parishioners in Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray.

The pope’s early service on Wednesday was held in the chapel at St Martha’s, the boarding house where Francis stays and where a photo of the late priest was set upon the altar. “Today the Church has more Christian martyrs than in the first centuries,” he said in his sermon which was delivered in Italian but translated into French for the visitors.

Christians were currently suffering persecution through being “imprisoned, tortured and killed because they refuse to deny Jesus,” he said. “This cruelty which demands apostasy is, let us say it, satanic,” he said. Apostasy is the renunciation of one’s religious beliefs. Earlier this month, Francis met with French President Francois Hollande over the attack, and on September 24, he will meet relatives of the 86 people killed in a jihadist truck attack in the Riviera resort of Nice on July 14.

Whitemoney Says He Pays His 150 Employees Five Years In Advance

Reality TV star Whitemoney, whose real name is Hazel Oyeze Onou, recently surprised fans with a revelation about his business practices. In an interview with Echoo Room, Whitemoney claimed to have a whopping 150 employees on his payroll! That’s a significant number of people who rely on him for their income.

But here’s the even more surprising part: Whitemoney says he doesn’t believe in the traditional monthly pay cycle. According to him, he actually pays his staff members their salaries up to five years in advance! This might sound unbelievable, but Whitemoney explained his reasoning behind this unconventional approach.

He says that by pre-paying his employees, he avoids the hassle and stress of managing monthly payroll. Imagine the administrative burden of processing payroll for 150 people every month. Whitemoney seems to believe that pre-paying eliminates that headache entirely.

The host asked, “I’ve heard that you pay staff members a couple of years in advance; five years, three years in advance. Is this true?”

Whitemoney replied, “To be honest, it is. I operate on that system because it helps me take my mind off things. The way I set up my system is because I’m versatile; I do a lot of things, and I can easily get carried away. Currently, I have 150 staff members.”

Of course, some questions naturally arise from this revelation. For instance, how does Whitemoney manage his cash flow if he’s essentially giving out large sums of money upfront? Is there any kind of contract or agreement in place to ensure his employees fulfil their job duties for the entire five-year period after receiving their salaries? These are details Whitemoney hasn’t publicly addressed yet.

One thing’s for sure, Whitemoney’s approach to payroll is certainly unconventional. While it might work for him and his specific business model, it’s not likely a strategy that could be easily replicated by everyone.

The war of words between rap titans Kendrick Lamar and Drake shows no signs of abating.

At a recent concert in Los Angeles, Kendrick Lamar threw down the gauntlet at Drake. This reignited the feud with a fiery performance of his diss tracks “Not Like Us” and “Euphoria.”

The electrifying atmosphere at the Forum on June 19th, 2024 was a testament to the impact of “Not Like Us.” The crowd, a sea of Kendrick supporters, roared their approval. They sang along to every word of the track that shattered streaming records on Spotify in the US. This wasn’t just a performance; it was a full-blown battle cry.

But Kendrick wasn’t content with just one diss track. During his performance of “Euphoria,” he took things a step further. With a few pointed lyric tweaks, he aimed a direct message at Drake with, “Give me Tupac’s ring back and I might give you a little respect” instead of “Matter of fact, I ain’t even bleed him yet, can I bleed him.”

This back-and-forth between the rappers has become a media spectacle. Fans eagerly await Drake’s next move and wonder how he’ll respond to Kendrick’s fiery performance.

According to Billboard, Drake bought the ring for $1 million and the Canadian rapper has constantly boasted about his purchase. He even flaunted it in the music video for his Kendrick Lamar diss track “Family Matters.”

He’s also a master collaborator, racking up an impressive number of streams on songs where he’s featured alongside other artists. Recently, he surpassed another milestone by becoming one of only two artists to have 15 songs with over a billion streams each on Spotify. Drake shared the record with fellow Canadian superstar Justin Bieber.
