In an explosive new email chain released within a new cache by WikiLeaks, Podesta explains their attempts to subvert the Catholic church with progressive organizations created for the purpose of prompting a "Catholic Spring." The "seeds of this revolution" take the form of progressive groups like Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good and Catholics United.

Ahead of this week’s EU summit in Slovenia, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, already suffering from low popularity at home, looks more isolated then ever at the European stage. Having backed Chancellor Merkel at the beginning of the Migrant Crisis last year, Government of Austria has long distanced itself from Berlin’s liberal stance on migrant influx into Europe. However, what worries Berlin today is the emerging alliance between Austria and the Central European countries of Hungary, Poland, Slovakia and Czech Republic -- also referred to as the Visegrad group. Prominent German newspaper Die Welt viewed the new development with concern. “Should the five [countries] were to act in concert, this would create a new political power centre in Europe,” Die Welt noted. This new rival block could pose a serious challenge to German-French dominated “European Project”. Most Visegrad member states have been against Merkel’s liberal Migrant Policy right from its onset. Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orban remains the most vocal opponent of Merkel’s Brussels-backed pro-migrant stance. “Europe's biggest problem at the moment is naivety.” Prime Minster Orban said while talking to reporters earlier this week. “[EU’s] migration policy is based on naivety and that's why we are in huge trouble today.”

This is embarrassing... Indiana University students mistook a Dominican Monk wielding a rosary for a klansman with a whip. This wily foe was up to no good at Red Mango -- the frozen yogurt joint. Twitter was abuzz with reports of a weapon-bearing klansman terrorizing campus. Screen Shot 2016-04-07 at 6.00.07 PM

Last week, Republican Presidential hopeful, Marco Rubio, opened up about his faith, what it means to doubt one's faith, and where he turns in times of tumult and challenge. His candid response caught the attention of many Republican Christians. That was until this video surfaced. At an event organized by American Renewal Project in Iowa, Sen. Rubio shared the gospel with a large audience of pastors. Like his previous answers on the matter, Rubio spoke at length of peace. Not "hippy peace" as he called it, but the "peace that we are ordered to." For five minutes forget about politics, forget about your personal candidate preferences and just... listen.

Republican presidential hopeful Marco Rubio was asked if he goes to God for counsel when encountering difficult decisions. Rubio took the opportunity to elaborate on his relationship with faith and peace. "You know, I'd love to tell you absolutely all the time. I should and I often do. I think none of us do that enough," said Rubio. "About two months ago, somebody asked me, "do you ever doubt your faith?" I think people think doubting faith means you wake up in the morning and you say I wonder if there's really a God. I think we all doubt our faith. Let me tell you when you doubt your faith," he continued. "You doubt your faith when you're confronted with a challenge or a problem and you start to have deep anxiety."

As the United States is preparing for the visit of Pope Francis, security efforts are focused on a potential terror plot:
On the eve of Pope Francis' historic first visit to the United States, law enforcement officials are concerned terrorists could disguise themselves as police officers, firefighters and emergency medical technicians to carry out attacks, according to a report from NBC News Monday. A memo titled "First Responder Impersonators: The New Terrorist Threat," from the Pennsylvania State Police's Criminal Intelligence Center and sent to law enforcement, warned that terrorists could falsely identify themselves as first responders to enter secure areas and carry out attacks. "The impersonators' main goals are to further their attack plan and do harm to unsuspecting citizens as well as members of the emergency services community," the memo read, according to NBC News.
This contrasts to a security incident that occurred in 2013, during the papal visit to Brazil:

Out of the sea of rainbow-frocked Facebook profile photos, corporate logos, and colorfully lit buildings emerged a seemingly innocuous black and white video. With a mission to, "educate and inspire Americans of all faiths to prioritize the issues of life, faith, and family," Catholic Vote is the brains behind the video that has publications like Ad Week up in arms. Billed with the hashtag #SpeakTruthWithLove and filmed as a coming out video of sorts, 'Not Alone' illuminates the flip-side side of the gay marriage coin -- those who believe in traditional marriage. "I am a little nervous about people hearing that I am this way and people thinking, well, you know, she's not welcome here," says one woman. "Most people probably already think I'm weird anyway, so I don't think society's impression of me is going to change drastically based on one or two discoveries that come to light after this video," expresses another. "It's pretty scary, you know? You wonder how many people can I really, truly, honestly be open with?" The big confession? "I believe marriage is between a man and a woman." Take a look:
