Plane was found intact inside the CNN studios in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. Press conference scheduled for 9pm Eastern. Stay tuned.
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia – With reports that Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 with 239 people on board might have flown for six and a half hours after its transponder stopped sending signals on March 8, the search for the missing Boeing 777-200ER has expanded to a vast area stretching from the Indian Ocean to as far north as Kazakhstan.
Malaysian authorities have not ruled out any theories – from mechanical problems and pilot error to hijacking and pilot suicide. But they seemed to have missed one possible cause of the plane’s disappearance.
It took anchors and analysts from a respected U.S. news cable network to state the obvious: God may have stolen the plane.
The anchors and analysts bandied about the idea Sunday afternoon that something “beyond our understanding” happened to Malaysia Airlines flight MH 370, that “something” being perhaps supernatural maybe?
“Especially today, on a day when we deal with the supernatural,” the anchor said. “We go to church, the supernatural power of God…people are saying to me, why aren’t you talking about the possibility — and I’m just putting it out there — that something odd happened to this plane, something beyond our understanding?”
What is surprising to television viewers is that the cable news network was not Fox News. It was CNN. The Anchor? Don Lemon.
The Vatican, Italy – Pope Francis continues to send shockwaves to Catholics and others worldwide with his radical actions and pronouncements, many of which break away from centuries-old Vatican dogma and practices.
In his latest move, Pope Francis announced that he is delegating the papal duties to selected cardinals in various continents. His first appointment is Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle, the young and charismatic bishop from the Philippines who was on the short list of candidates during Pope Francis’ election last year. Tagle will be the new pope for the Asian continent. Pope Francis is expected to announce the other popes for Africa, South America, North America, Antartica and Australia in the next few weeks. He is not appointing a pope for Europe since The Vatican is already in the European continent.
The Vatican said that this new arrangement will bring the papacy closer to the people around the world.
Soon after the announcement, The Boston Globe published this in-depth interview with Cardinal Tagle, calling him the Philippine Pope Francis.
