I fund my Periscopes and podcasts via audience micro-donations on Patreon. I prefer this method over accepting advertisements or working for a “boss” somewhere because it keeps my voice independent. No one owns me, and that is rare. I’m trying in my own way to make the world a better place, and your contributions help me stay inspired to do that.

The notorious hate group, known for picketing funerals and public events for attention, protested an old foe, the Foo Fighters, before the band’s concert in Kansas City Friday, the Kansas City Star reported.
But the Foo Fighters fought back. Led by frontman Dave Grohl, they trolled the demonstrators by blaring Rick Astley’s 1987 hit “Never Gonna Give You Up” from a pickup as they rode in the back. Band members also held up signs that read “You got Rick roll’d” and “Keep it clean.”
Look at the fun they’re having:
What a night with the Foo Fighters here at Sprint Center.
“Rickrolling,” originally a bait-and-switch prank in which people are lured into clicking Internet links of interest that instead open to Rick Astley’s song, has been around for several years but is used to maximum effect here.
The Foo Fighters also took on Westboro protesters in Kansas City in 2011, singing a gay love song to counter the group’s anti-gay views.
Westboro founder Fred Phelps had written: “[The Foo Fighters] have a platform and should be using it to encourage obedience to God; instead they teach every person who will listen all things contrary to him: fornication, adultery, idolatry, fags.”
We say the Foo Fighters just won this round as well.
If you’ve paid any attention to news coverage of the Catholic Church at any point in the last 15 to 20 years, chances are you’ve seen or heard from John L. Allen Jr. Now on staff at The Boston Globe and a key contributor to their Catholic news website Crux, Allen has been covering the Vatican since he first headed to Rome in 1998. At the time, it was a backwater to most news outlets and almost no American media had a presence on the ground. So Allen had this beat almost to himself as far as US audiences were concerned.
After learning Italian and building up contacts, Allen found himself with an increasing worldwide audience thanks to the growth of the internet. In 2001, of course 9-11 made the “clash of civilizations” and Christianity and Islam central issues. Plus there were hot topics like the never-ending child molestation and cover-up scandals roiling country after country and finally the death of Pope John Paul II. The Vatican was hot again and Allen was here, there and everywhere, delivering solid journalism and working as a key analyst for outlets like CNN. Any other journalist helicoptering into the Vatican for a big event knew they could get a succinct quote and solid insight from Allen. (So, at times, could bishops and cardinals who wanted a little background on the latest news when they’d been out of the country. It never hurts to be a trusted source for your sources)
Allen has also written a string of increasingly confident books, including not one but two biographies of the man who would become Pope Benedict as well as a demystifying look at Opus Dei. Now with his latest work The Francis Miracle, Allen turns his eye on the pope with popularity ratings a movie star would envy as well as a Reagan-like ability to overcome any momentary stumbles in his off-the-cuff remarks simply because people like him. As Allen has put it, with Pope Benedict everyone felt the things they disliked about the Catholic Church were because of him. With Pope Francis, they feel the things they dislike about the Catholic Church are despite him.
Allen’s new book contains a biographical sketch of Francis and his life, mostly with an eye towards how those experiences might color the Pope’s worldview and the priorities he has for the Church. Then Allen looks at key issues facing the Church such as much-needed financial reform, the role of women, the child molestation scandals and the lack of accountability for those who covered it up for decades. It’s a snapshot of the Francis papacy, where it’s at today, how he is doing and what to look for in the future.
I talked with Allen in-depth, discussing his unlikely career path, the many controversial issues facing the Catholic Church, the personality of Francis versus Benedict and why non-Catholics need to be aware of the Pope and his priorities just as they would with any other major world leader. You can see the entire interview at BookFilter.com. Following are some key excerpts.
ALLEN ON FIRST MEETING THE POPE
Allen talks about the first time he met the man who would become Pope Francis back in 2001 just days after 9-11. It was an almost accidental meeting because the late Cardinal Edward Egan had to back out of a previously arranged interview. (Egan died one day after our discussion took place.)
ALLEN ON WHY FRANCIS IS UNIQUE AMONG POPES WHEN IT COMES TO WOMEN
Allen talks about Pope Francis, how he broke new ground by working with and for women as a young man and why women are so far disappointed with his track record.
HOW ALLEN JUMPED FROM HIGH SCHOOL JOURNALISM TEACHER TO COVERING THE VATICAN
Allen talks about his unlikely career path that veered from religious studies to being the faculty adviser for a high school newspaper to hot rods and then — suddenly — the Vatican.

More and more single people over 50 are turning to the Internet to find a later-in-life love connection, but there’s a clear gender divide in how they adjust to dating online, according to AARP dating expert Ken Solin.
Older men who look for mates online usually cast a much wider net than women, Solin told HuffPost Live’s Caitlyn Becker on Friday.
“Men tend to approach online dating like it’s a candy store and they’re a kid with a bag of dimes,” he said. “They just spin the dial, and you can tell … by the emails men send. ‘You’re cute, let’s talk’ — how many people did they send that to?”
On the other hand, women make more careful choices and are more likely to study a potential match’s profile before reaching out. Women also have a better understanding of how sex plays into a relationship, Solin said.
“It’s more difficult for men to understand that the best relationships — the hottest sexual relationships, passionate relationships — are also best friendships, and that’s critical,” he said. “We were raised to think that once you become friends with a woman, sex is over. Actually the opposite is true. Once you becomes friends with a woman you love, sex gets better.”
