‘Conlleva una comunidad’ … ser un padrino

first_img An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Por Pat McCaughanPosted Feb 27, 2012 Rector Martinsville, VA Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Rector Knoxville, TN Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Rector Pittsburgh, PA Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Rector Albany, NY [Episcopal News Service] Cuando reflexiono sobre lo que contribuye a crear grandes padrinos, pienso en el tutor de un programa de 12 pasos.“Una de las cosas que le digo a los padres cuando hago los preparativos de un bautizo, es que se trata de algo parecido al de un tutor en un contexto de Alcohólicos Anónimos”, dijo la Rda. Ruth Lawson Kirk, rectora de la iglesia de Cristo [Christiana Hundred] en Wilmington, Delaware.“Necesita a alguien además que tenga más experiencia en esto que llamamos la fe cristiana. Que estén dispuesto a caminar con ustedes, no en lugar de ustedes, sino a estar presente a ayudarles a lo largo del camino”, dijo ella durante una reciente entrevista telefónica.La tradición de elegir padrinos se desarrolló a partir del bautismo infantil, posiblemente tan temprano como en el siglo I. Pero el papel [de los padrinos] todavía está sujeto a interpretación.Para algunas personas significa servir como una especie de tutor espiritual. Para otros conlleva asumir un interés activo en la vida y desarrollo personal de otro individuo. E incluso para otros implica una disposición a intervenir y ocupar el lugar de los padres si se presentara la necesidad, una costumbre que “hace mucho desapareció en la sociedad norteamericana”, dijo Kirk.“La tradición en la Iglesia Episcopal cuando me bautizaron era que uno necesitaba dos padrinos del mismo sexo, y uno del sexo opuesto. No tengo la menor idea de donde provenía [la costumbre], pero era bastante uniforme”, añadió Kirk, de 50 años.“La gente me ha preguntado cuántos padrinos se supone que uno tenga, y yo les he contestado con otra pregunta: ¿cuántas personas usted necesita para ayudar a formar a su hijo como cristiano?“Porque en verdad la formación de una persona conlleva toda una comunidad”, añadió. “Uno no tiene que tener padrinos, pero conservamos esta tradición  porque sabemos cuán importante es hacer cosas en comunidad y relaciones. En eso radica en gran medida el ser episcopal.Con frecuencia se les pide a miembros de una familia que sirvan de padrinos, una opción que Kirk evitó con su hijo, Matt, porque “uno siempre mantiene relaciones con su familia”.En lugar de eso ella se lo pidió a Ken Garner y Bob Mikrut, dos hombres que sostienen una relación de pareja y que son feligreses en la iglesia de San Pablo en el barrio de Chestnut Hill en Filadelfia. Kirk sirvió allí como rectora asociada inmediatamente después de egresar del seminario. Ella escogió a Garner y Mikrut porque “yo quería personas que le hicieran manifiesta la fe cristiana a Matt (su hijo)”“Nos encantó que nos pidieran ser padrinos”, dijo Garner durante una reciente entrevista telefónica desde la casa que él y Mikrut comparten en Filadelfia.Tan encantados que a Mikrut lo detuvieron por exceso de velocidad cuando se dirigía al hospital poco después del nacimiento de Matthew Kirk, que ahora tiene 19 años y está en segundo año de licenciatura en la Universidad de Temple, el alma mater de Garner.“Sé que cuento con ellos”, dijo Matthew, refiriéndose a sus padrinos, en una entrevista telefónica reciente desde su dormitorio de estudiante. “Ellos son la familia. Es realmente una relación muy cercana”.“Ellos responden por mí. Me quieren y se ocupan de mí y siempre han estado muy dispuestos a ayudarme desde el primer día”.Garner y Mikrut asistieron a la ceremonia del Rito 13  de Matthew, así como a su confirmación y graduaciones, las celebraciones de Navidad, Pascua y Halloween, y a los partidos anuales de béisbol, porque ambos son “fanáticos rabiosos de los Phillies.“Lo llevamos al juego de los Phillies en su primer cumpleaños. Desde entonces , nosotros y toda la familia Kirk vamos al partido de los Phillies todos los años para celebrar el cumpleaños de Matt”, dijo Garner, de 57 años y director de comunicaciones y mayordomía de la Iglesia del Redentor [Church of the Redeemer], en Bryan Mawr.“Desde el principio tomamos la decisión de que queríamos ser parte de la vida de Matt tanto como pudiéramos, sabiendo que Ruth era sacerdote y podría estar andando de un sitio a otro sin que pudiéramos estar cerca de ella”, agregó.Tanto Garner como Mikrut, de 55 años, dijeron que el papel ha sido especialmente significativo porque ellos no tienen hijos propios. “Hemos estado juntos durante 32 años. En la actualidad, le resulta mucho más fácil a las parejas homosexuales tener hijos. Les agradezco a Rick y Ruth que nos hayan proporcionado un poquito de esa [experiencia] al hacernos padrinos y permitirnos participar de la vida de Matt desde el momento en que nació.“Agradezco tener un pequeño atisbo de lo que esa experiencia significa, ya que no podíamos tenerla por nosotros mismos”.Lo importante para ella, dijo Ruth Kirk, era saber que Garner y Mikrut “siguen el patrón del año cristiano, sostenidos por la oración y por el testimonio de una vida que también hace esas cosas.“Para mí, la cualidad fundamental consiste en ser un fiel cristiano, afirmó ella. “Uno busca a alguien que tenga una relación con Jesucristo. Ken y Bob han sido cristianos increíblemente leales y fieles”.San Diego: Una oración en una cercaMindy Steers tenía 30 años, estaba embarazada, sin hogar y consumiendo drogas cuando llamó su atención un aviso junto a una caja en una valla metálica de Ocean Beach, cerca de San Diego, California.“Decía ‘deje una oración’” recordaba Steers en una reciente entrevista telefónica. Y ella así lo hizo. Cogió uno de las hojas del montón de papeles y escribió: “Sí, necesito una oración. Necesito su ayuda. Necesito un lugar donde vivir. Estoy a punto de tener un bebé”.Alguien vio su oración y se lo dijo a Drusilla Grubb, que llamó a una amiga, Rhonda Muir, quien a su vez tenía otro amigo, Steve Cooper, que tenía un cuarto disponible. Ellos ayudaron a Steers a mudarse a ese sitio. Un día después de la mudanza, nació Zoe.Eso sucedió hace cinco años, y Grubb, Muir y Cooper se encuentran entro los cinco padrinos de Zoe, un papel que ellos aceptaron entusiasta y alegremente.“Zoe vino por primera vez a la iglesia en el oficio infantil de Nochebuena de la iglesia de los Fieles Difuntos [All Souls Church]”, cuando apenas tenía tres semanas de nacida, recordaba Grubb durante una entrevista reciente en su casa de San Diego. “Zoe, por su propia iniciativa, decidió a los tres años de edad que quería ser bautizada”.Para entonces, todos ellos ya se habían convertido en una auténtica familia, que crecía y aprendía y luchaba entre sí. Presentarlos en la iglesia parecía lo más natural, dijo Muir.“La recuerdo como una bebé (Zoe)que apena podía levantar la cabeza. Estábamos sentados en la iglesia cuando ella aún no había cumplido un año. Era Martes de Carnaval y ella miraba jugar a los otros niños. Podía ver su deseo de participar. ¿Por qué no habríamos de ayudarles? Aquí estaba esta bebita, aquí estaba esta joven mujer que de alguna manera se encontraba bajo nuestro cuidado. Por supuesto que íbamos a llevarlas a la iglesia”.Grubb recordaba estar de pie junto a la pila bautismal comprometiéndose a ayudar a criar a Zoe en la Iglesia. “Me importa mucho que los niños se eduquen en la fe cristiana. La fe es un [nexo] entre usted y Dios y llega cuando llega. Pero si no te preparan, ¿cómo sabrías reconocerla?”“Acepté el papel de madrina como lo define la Iglesia”, agregó. “Pero para entonces habíamos crecido mediante el Espíritu Santo en amor los unos con los otros. Nos habíamos convertido en Abuela Grubb y Abuela Rhonda. Es cosa de Dios”.Después  de su bautismo, Zoe caminó entre la congregación de la mano del Rdo. Michael Russell, el rector de la iglesia, saludando a “su nueva familia”. Ella ha mantenido esta tradición. “Todavía camina junto al P. Mike  cuando saludan a los recién bautizados”, dijo Muir.“La parte que más le gustó fue cuando el P. Mike le derramó el agua en la cabeza”, dijo Steers. “A ella le gusta que le den “la galletita” durante la comunión. La llamamos una galletita, pero es la comunión. Y a ella le gusta caminar con el P. Mike para recibir a los recién bautizados en la Iglesia”.Steers, de 35 años, cuenta en la actualidad con un empleo de ventas de jornada completa, ha alquilado una casa y tiene un auto.Ella dijo que Grubb y Muir “siempre han estado a mi entera disposición. A esto es a lo que yo llamo una familia. Ellas nos adoptaron a Zoe y a mí y son nuestra familia. No tenía sentido que nadie más fuera sus madrinas”.Grubb, de 58 años, and Muir, de 57, están de acuerdo. “Hemos hablado con Mynde respecto a esto y, si algo llegara a suceder, estamos preparados para criar a Zoe.“No sé cómo uno puede cumplir con su deber como madrina [o padrino], llevando un niño a la iglesia y  formándolo en la fe, sin vivirla para ellos”, dijo Muir. “La fe no consiste tan sólo en ir a la iglesia. La fe consiste en cómo vives cada día. Tienes que tener esa relación ajena a cualquier formalidad para cumplir con tus votos bautismales”.“La gente se aparece a tu vida y Dios te la da y tú la amas”, afirmó Grubb. “¿Qué otra cosa hay?”.Grandes padrinos engendran grandes padrinosJames R. Dennis le agradece a sus ahijados —y tiene cinco— el haberle devuelto a la iglesia.Cuando Dennis, abogado, novicio dominico y bloguero, se mudó de El Paso a San Antonio, Texas, en enero de 2004, comenzó a asistir a la iglesia de San Lucas [St. Luke’s], en Alamo Heights, luego de decidir “que debía estar en la iglesia con ellos (sus ahijados).“Entré por la puerta de la iglesia a la que ellos asistían y al cabo de unos pocos meses estaba enseñando en la Escuela Dominical”, recuerda. “Poco después, era miembro de la junta parroquial y ahora soy un novicio dominico”.Sus cinco ahijados provienen de tres familias diferentes, con edades que oscilan entre los 4 y los 18 años, y él ha sido amigo de sus padres durante más de dos décadas. Dennis le atribuye a su propia madrina el haberle enseñado la importancia de un gran padrinazgo.“Creo que funciona como funciona con el amor de Dios mismo”, dijo él en una entrevista telefónica reciente desde su oficina de San Antonio. “Santo Tomás de Aquino dijo que amamos porque nos amaron primero. Aprendemos de las personas que nos mostraron lo que era ser buenos padrinos. Los míos fueron una tía y un primo, pero ellos eran las personas que siempre me apoyaron, y yo creo que es la manera que esto tiene de funcionar.“Me lo tomo muy en serio, porque ellos se lo toman muy en serio… pero la relación no es  la de un mundo ideal”,  añadió Dennis, que es soltero sin hijos.“Se trata de lo que ellos necesitan y de lo que uno puede hacer para responder a esa necesidad, si consiste en ser sólo un amigo o alguien que ayuda económicamente o de otras maneras. Lo más importante, se trata de alguien con quien se puede contar cuando surgen los problemas, como siempre surgen para todos nosotros”.Eso incluye “estar al tanto de cumpleaños y navidades…y de aniversarios de bautizos. Trato de enviarles una nota en los aniversarios de sus bautizos. Tres de ellos participan en el teatro, así que consigo ver montones de obras. Otro tomaba parte en una banda de música. Eso significó que asistí a cantidad de funciones”.Uno de sus ahijadas, Taylor Allam, de 18 años, llama a Dennis “un padrino fantástico, que nunca se olvida de un cumpleaños o una Navidad”. Él siempre nos invita a la iglesia, al teatro y a otras cosas”.Ella conserva un “recuerdo icónico” of Dennis. “Cuando mi papá estaba en el hospital y mi mamá no podía venir por mí, él (Dennis) lo hacía”, dijo Allam, cuyo padre ya falleció. “Siempre que lo necesité, podía hablar con él (Dennis) de lo que estaba pasando en mi vida o si necesitaba algo o si tenia problemas en la universidad”.Por su parte, Dennis dijo que el ser padrino significa “ante todo que ellos están en mi vida regular y en mis oraciones diarias”.“En segundo lugar, lo veo como siendo alguien de la edad de sus padres y que sencillamente cree que ellos son fenomenales”.Y prosiguió: “Todo lo que la mayoría de los chicos quieren en este mundo es alguien que piense que ellos valen. Y así uno empieza a entender el papel sacramental de ser padrino al entender primero el papel emocional de serlo. Eso empieza con un afecto profundo y duradero por quien por lo general es un bebito. Porque —y ríe— “para la mayoría de nosotros es muchísimo más fácil amar cuando somos bebitos”.Reflexionando, añade: “Lo siga usted tomando en serio o no”.En todos los bautizos “decimos que vamos a ayudar a formar a este niño [o niña]. Al parecer conlleva un compromiso espiritual que no puede desprenderse de un profundo compromiso emocional, que se trata de alguien que me importa”.—La Rda.

Successful major donor fundraisers share interest in popular psychology

first_img Howard Lake | 8 April 2014 | News Tagged with: Major gift Research / statistics Advertisement  29 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Some of the UK’s most successful major donors fundraisers share an interest in popular psychology, Kent University’s Beth Breeze told delegates to a conference presenting the latest academic research in fundraising last week.Dr Breeze presented preliminary findings from her three-year study exploring the personality traits of successful major donor fundraisers: The Formation of Fundraisers: The Role of Personal Skills in Asking for Money.This found that major donor fundraisers were “avid readers” of books on popular psychology, such as Malcolm Gladwell’s  Tipping Point and Richard Thaler’s Nudge.They also have a “hinterland beyond their day job”.The study also suggests that fundraisers:Are emotionally intelligent: self-aware, self-confident with good social skills and the ability to ‘read’ peopleHave had formative experiences that mean they are not afraid to speak up for and ask for what they want and don’t have taboos about moneyWork behind the scenes as enablers and scene-setters rather than craving recognition for themselves (“I hate to break it to you, but there are no famous fundraisers,” Dr Breeze said).However, even though her research looks at individual personality traits, Breeze warned against a “damaging myth” that great fundraising is embodied in individuals rather than across whole organisations.“Perfect fundraising organisations are those where the ceo is committed,  most people in the organisation are ambassadors and relationship builders, and fundraising is seen as being “message aligned”, Breeze told delegates. “But there is a damaging myth that you can embody fundraising in a person rather than an organisation.”She said that fundraising textbooks often “buy into this myth” and presented examples from fundraising books from the 60s and 70s that gave lists of attributes that great fundraisers should have.center_img Successful major donor fundraisers share interest in popular psychology AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

AFBF Confident Congress Will Fully Fund Agriculture

first_img Congress funding agZippy DuvallThe American Farm Bureau Federation expressed confidence agriculture lawmakers will stand up to proposed budget cuts by President Donald Trump. American Farm Bureau Federation President Zippy Duvall says even though the President’s proposed budget that included billions of dollars of cuts to agriculture programs sent shockwaves across rural America, he believes Congress will now get to work on amending and adjusting those figures.“We know that the budget that comes from the president is kind of suggested areas of where they’re interested in looking to making cuts, and we have full confidence in Senator Roberts and Congressman Conaway leading their ag committees in doing the right thing to make sure that rural America and our farmers and ranchers have that good safety net.”The budget proposal would cut $29 billion from crop insurance. As agriculture is struggling with lower farm income and low commodity prices, Duvall says Senator Pat Roberts and Representative Mike Conaway will work to protect the farm safety net.“The two chairmen said that they’re going to do what’s needed to protect the safety net for farmers and ranchers. And, moving forward in this very difficult economy that we got, this is no-time for us to talk about those severe cuts in our safety net.”Duvall says AFBF is appreciative of the president’s attempt to reduce the federal deficit, but says farmers and ranchers have already done their part.“We salute him for trying to take care of the deficit. But, if you look at the 2014 farm bill, we took a $23 billion cut. If you look at all the other segments of our federal government, no one has taken the responsibility of trying to help with the deficit more than farmers and ranchers across this country. We think we’ve already done our part.”Duvall adds Farm Bureau looks for other areas of federal government to step up and do the same things that farmers have done in the past.

Purdue Panel Says Big Yields Could Get Even Bigger

first_img Purdue Panel Says Big Yields Could Get Even Bigger Indiana’s average corn yield is forecast is 186 bushels per acre, up 6 bushels from the previous year. Total production is forecast at 915 million bushels. Previous articleFFA Pavilion at Fair Mixes Fun and Agriculture EducationNext articleRyan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for August 13, 2018 Gary Truitt Dr. Bob Nielsen,Yet, this number could increase if weather conditions are favorable. According to Dr. Bob Nielsen, Purdue extension Corn Specialist, “This number is a bit high, but within the realm of what I think it could be.  But keep in mind this crop is only about half made, so we could back off this number if we get stressed or move higher if we get favorable weather.”  He told HAT a lack of moisture could provide that stress; but, at this point, that does not look to be in the forecast, “I think we can get through the next 2 weeks with plenty of moisture, so I really don’t see any stress coming.” Nielsen says the key to boosting yields is temperature, “If we say cooler for the next 30 days, that is what will put the frosting on that cake.”  He does not see this as likely, but it certainly is possible. Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Purdue Panel Says Big Yields Could Get Even Bigger Despite a wet and cold spring that delayed planting, Indiana farmers anticipate harvesting excellent crops of corn and soybeans, according to Greg Matli, State Statistician, USDA, NASS, Indiana Field Office. If realized, the forecasted yield will be the second highest on record for corn and the highest on record for soybeans. As of August 1, the corn and soybean crop was more phenologically advanced than both last year and the 5 year average. Rainfall has been adequate in most areas of the State with few fields showing drought stress. Highlights from the August 1 Crop Production report follow: Dr. Bob Nielsen,(l) Dr. Shaun Casteel, (R)The USDA pegged U.S. soybean yields at 51.6 bpa an  increase of 2.5 bpa from 2017.  Total production is estimated at 4.59 billion bushels, a 4% jump from a year ago.  Typically, soybean yield estimates in August are looked upon with some suspicion because the crop is just entering pollination. This year, however, the majority of the crop got planted early and is well ahead of the average pace of development. Dr. Shaun Casteel, Purdue Soybean Specialist, said, “All season long, we have been averaging about 10 to 14 days ahead of the 5 year average.” He told HAT that entering pollination this early exposes the plants to more hours of sunlight which may increase yields. “In 2016, we had soybean yields of 57 bpa because of late August rain,” he stated. “If we get that kind of weather this year, we could realize an  upside potential on these soybean yields.”Karen Plaut, the Glenn W. Sample Dean of the Purdue College of Agriculture, convened the panel of experts that included Greg Matli, representing USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service; Bob Nielsen, Purdue professor of agronomy and Extension expert in Indiana’s corn management systems; Shaun Casteel, Purdue associate professor of agronomy and Extension soybean and small grains specialist; and Chris Hurt, professor of agricultural economics specializing in family farm market problems, pricing strategies, and livestock futures market problems, pricing strategies, and livestock futures market performance. Indiana Crop Production Numbers By Gary Truitt – Aug 12, 2018 center_img The USDA August production report released on Friday was expected to show high yields for this year’s corn crop, but the number came in at the high end of market expectations and may go even higher according to Purdue experts who presented a program on Friday at the Indiana State Fair. The national average yield as of August 1 was forecast at 178.4 bpa up 1.8 bushels from last year and a new record high for the  U.S. This estimate could result in a 14.6 billion bushel crop down 1% from 2017 due to a slight decline in planted acres. Hay producers expect to harvest 290,000 acres of alfalfa hay with an average yield of 3.7 tons per acre. Total production is forecast at 1.07 million tons, up 20 percent from last year.

Detained and under house arrest for ten years, banned from leaving the country and separated from his family, Pourzand committed suicide on 29 April in Tehran. We hold the Iranian authorities responsible for this gesture of despair. Despite several appeals to the authorities by his family and various human rights organizations including Reporters Without Borders, not once did either President Mohammad Khatami or President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, or the heads of judicial system, Ayatollah Mahmoud Hashemi Shahroudi and Sadegh Larijani, intercede on his behalf. Pouzand’s death is a reminder that the Iranian regime is one of the most violent in the world for journalists. We address our most sincere condolences to the Pourzand family, to his daughters and his wife, the lawyer Mehranghiz Kar, and to his colleagues. Pourzand began his career in 1952 with the newspaper Bakhtar Emroz. Prior to the 1978 revolution, he had also worked for several film magazines, including Paik Cinema and Sepid va siah, Ferdossi. After Ayatollah Khomeini came to power, he was fired from the newspaper Kyhan. Despite harassment, he continued to work with independent newspapers before taking over the management of Tehran’s artistic and cultural centre. He worked as a cultural commentator for several reformist newspapers after the reformist Mohammed Khatami became president in 1997.Pourzand was abducted in the street by security forces on 29 November 2001 and was held incommunicado for the first four months of his detention. He was granted neither access to a lawyer nor medical care. Held for months in solitary confinement, he was tortured in an attempt to force him into a televised confession. Accepting all the charges against him, Pourzand said he had absolutely no need to defend himself.He was sentenced on 3 May 2002 to 11 years in prison on charges of “spying and undermining state security” and “links with monarchists and counter-revolutionaries.” A Tehran court of appeal upheld the sentence on 7 July 2002. In a letter published in 2003, his wife wrote: “He is in solitary confinement in the basement of Evin prison. According to a diagnosis made on 30 July 2003 by the Imam Khomeini Hospital in Tehran, he is suffering from arthritis in his neck and from worrying back problems requiring an operation.”In recent years, Pourzand had spent his time under house arrest, with frequent hospital visits and constantly under threat from information ministry interrogators. He was an eye-witness to crimes committed by the authorities in Iranian prisons. This was the reason for their refusal to allow him to leave the country.On 8 March 2003, he telephoned his daughter in the United States to confirm that he was being put on trial again. “From now on, you can count me among the dead,” he said.Many journalists are currently in prison or have been granted a “conditional release” on payment of a large amount of bail. Those who are in poor health are denied the treatment they need. Reporters Without Borders calls for the Special Rapporteur on Iran to be sent to the country urgently, in accordance with the resolution voted by the United Nations Human Rights Council on 24 March.

US – RSF strongly condemns physical assault on Guardian reporter

first_img News May 25, 2017 US – RSF strongly condemns physical assault on Guardian reporter June 3, 2021 Find out more United StatesAmericas Condemning abusesProtecting journalists Violence April 28, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on United States On the eve of Montana’s special election, Jacobs attempted to ask Republican candidate Gianforte a question about the Congressional Budget Office (CBO)’s most recent analysis of the Republican-led health care bill when Gianforte allegedly body-slamnmed the reporter, breaking his glasses and exclaiming “I’m sick and tired of this…get the hell out of here!,” which can be heard in an audio recording of the incident.A Fox News reporter who witnessed the incident with two of her colleagues said “at no point did any of us who witnessed this assault see Jacobs show any form of physical aggression toward Gianforte, who left the area after giving statements to local sheriff’s deputies.”Montana’s Gallatin County Sherrif’s office filed misdemeanor assault charges against Gianforte late last night. Gianforte is next due to appear in court on or before June 7.”RSF is appalled that a politician perpetrated such a violent assault on a journalist for merely asking a question, says Margaux Ewen, RSF North America’s Advocacy and Communications Director. “The incident marks a new level of violence and is especially chilling as it occured the night before an important state election. The anti-press rhetoric from the highest levels of the US government has given ammunition to certain politicians to act increasingly violently towards reporters who ask questions they don’t want to answer. We welcome the charges filed against Gianforte, but we urge all those in power to condemn these acts of aggression toward the press as they are completely unworthy of the First Amendment.”Just last week, a journalist was manhandled for asking a question during a press conference at the Federal Communications Commission, and the week before a journalist was arrested in West Virginia for attempting to ask US Health Secretary Tom Price a question about health care reform. The United States ranks 43rd out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index after falling 2 places in 2016.
