Joseph Muscat Issues Thank You Video To Supporters
May 29 2024 Share

Taking to social media, former Prime Minister Joseph Muscat issued a video to thank all those who supported him – whether through messages or whether they showed up in front of the court.

He said that yesterday’s events showed him that Malta has reached a mature point in history where one can voice their opinion civically and without any incidents.

He went on to add that, due to a court ruling, he cannot discuss the case and that this has kept him from addressing the nation through a press conference as he desired.

Saying that he respects the ruling of the court, he said that he has a lot of thoughts on the matter and that he will be looking to the future for what the next steps entail.

‘Enemies From Inside’: Evarist Bartolo’s Warning To Labour

'Enemies From Inside': Evarist Bartolo's Warning To Labour
May 29 2024 Share

Evarist Bartolo warned the Labour Party (PL) leadership about internal members seeking personal gain, calling them the party’s worst enemies. He stated that while the PL has faced many external threats in its 103-year history, the most significant damage has come from within, by those using the party for personal enrichment.

Bartolo’s comments came after former Prime Minister Joseph Muscat, ex-chief-of-staff Keith Schembri, and former minister Konrad Mizzi pleaded not guilty to bribery and corruption charges, along with 14 individuals and nine companies. Supporters of Muscat gathered outside the court in solidarity.

Bartolo expressed concern over the PL’s current direction, likening it to a ship caught in a storm due to internal conflicts. He criticized the lack of strong leadership needed to set a new course for the party and the country.

Although confident the PL will secure more votes than the opposition in upcoming elections, Bartolo warned of long-term problems, particularly the growing gap between the party and the post-secondary educated, higher-earning segments of society.

He urged the PL to address internal issues, including leadership and corruption, and to balance economic growth with sustainable infrastructure development to prevent further loss of support.

Pope Sorry For ‘Too Much “Faggotness”‘ Slur

Pope Sorry For 'Too Much "Faggotness"' Slur
May 29 2024 Share

Pope Francis apologized after reports surfaced that he used highly derogatory language towards gay men. During a private Italian Bishops’ Conference, he reportedly stated that gay men should not be allowed to train for the priesthood, using the offensive term “frociaggine.”

The Vatican’s statement clarified that the Pope did not intend to offend and apologized to those hurt by his words.

The comments, first reported by the Italian tabloid Dagospia and later confirmed by other Italian news agencies, have sparked widespread shock, especially given Pope Francis’ public stance on respecting gay people.

Matteo Bruni, the Holy See’s director, emphasized that the Pope believes the Church has room for everyone and never meant to use homophobic language.

Pope Francis’ apology is seen in the context of his previous inclusive remarks, such as “Who am I to judge?” regarding gay individuals and his controversial stance that priests could bless same-sex couples under certain circumstances.

Supporters argue that while substantial changes in gay rights within Catholicism are lacking, the Pope has shifted the Church’s tone. Critics, including Marianne Duddy-Burke from DignityUSA, found his reported comments “shocking and hurtful,” reflecting deep-seated anti-gay bias within the Church.
