Katharine Hepburn is the snooty daughter of a wealthy Philadelphia family and about to marry for the second time. Things get hilariously complicated when her cunning ex-husband Cary Grant enters the scene with tabloid reporter James Stewart in tow. While Stewart falls helplessly in love with Hepburn, she rejects her stuffed-shirt fiance and realizes she's still in love with Grant. One of the greatest romantic comedies ever produced, it was recently selected as one of the top 100 American films of all time by the prestigious American Film Institute. Nominated for six Academy Awards, including Best Picture, and winner for Best Screenplay. Stewart ("It's A Wonderful Life," "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington") took home an Oscar for his earnest portrayal of the smitten reporter, and Oscar-winner Hepburn ("The African Queen," "On Golden Pond") received her third nomination. Ruth Hussey ("Northwest Passage") earned an Oscar-nomination as a cynical tabloid photographer.

#BoycottStarbucks: 2 Black Men Arrested At Philadelphia Starbucks Sparks Outrage

The city of Philadelphia is the center of controversy after a pair of Black men were arrested at a local Starbucks this past Thursday as they were awaiting a friend. When asked by a store manager to purchase an item or leave despite them saying they were waiting for a friend, police were called and the men were escorted out in handcuffs.

NBC 10 Philadelphia reports:

After two men were seen in social media video being handcuffed and removed by police officers from a Philadelphia Starbucks Thursday, the coffee chain issued an apology and said it is looking into the “unfortunate result.”

Authorities were called to the store in Center City when the two men allegedly remained in the Starbucks after a manager told them they had to order something, according to the witnesses inside the Starbucks at 18th and Spruce streets. About five to seven police officers arrived about 4:30 p.m. and arrested the two men.

The men, who have not been identified, were later released after Starbucks declined to press trespassing charges.

In one video of the encounter shared on social media, a white patron asks the officers what did the men do to prompt a response. When the friend the pair were waiting on come in, he too asked to which the officers responded by saying “trespassing.”

Philadelphia’s police commissioner Robert Ross defended the actions of the officers, saying that the men were not compliant. Philadelphia mayor Jim Kenney also called for an investigation into the matter by the city, with Starbucks doing all the damage control it can during this sensitive racial climate.

We’ve got reactions from Twitter to the Starbucks arrest below and on the following pages.

LGBT Group Rejected By Philadelphia Archdiocese Won’t Back Down

Equally Blessed, a coalition of LGBT Catholic organizations, recently learned they would not be allowed to use a Philadelphia parish center for events during Pope Francis’s historic U.S. visit in September. The decision appears to have been nudged if not directly mandated by the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, the group says, and it is yet another move by church authorities in the city to show LGBT Catholics that their voice at the World Meeting of Families is not entirely welcome.

Equally Blessed is hosting a pilgrimage to Philadelphia for the World Meeting of Families, which runs from Sept. 22-27. The group planned to use St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church for “educational and outreach events” during the week, including one event titled “TransForming Love: Exploring Gender Identity From Catholic Perspectives.”

“There is a lack of information in the Catholic Church about gender identity, and this workshop was designed to provide information based on personal experience,” Francis DeBernardo, director of New Ways Ministry, told The Philadelphia Inquirer.

In order to share what Marianne Duddy-Burke, director of DignityUSA, called “the real stories of Catholic families” with LGBT members, Equally Blessed sent a letter to the Vatican in July urging Pope Francis to meet with them and hear their stories during his visit. 

“By meeting with folks like these very committed faithful pilgrims who are going to be there on behalf of the LGBT community, he’d get to see how spiritually grounded these people are,” Duddy-Burke told The Huffington Post.

Ken Gavin, spokesman for the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, said that the parish made the final call not to host Equally Blessed, though the archdiocese had offered strong guidance. Gavin told The Inquirer there was an expectation that “any parish-sponsored activities would feature content that is in line with church teaching.”

Presumably, the planned events would contradict official Catholic Church teaching that says “homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered” and gender identity is fixed and God-given. 

“If archdiocesan administration were to become aware of any activities to the contrary it would be their responsibility to look into the matter and ask that appropriate corrective action be taken,” Gavin said.

He added that the matter was not confined to LGBT-related programming.

Despite the news, the Equally Blessed pilgrimage will not be deterred. The group is making arrangements to relocate its supplemental workshops to Arch Street United Methodist Church, DeBernardo told HuffPost.

“The archdiocese may have the power to deny access to buildings, but these families’ messages of faith, hope, and love will still be proclaimed during the World Meeting of Families,” DeBernardo said.

Catholic teaching on LGBT issues “causes a lot of pain and alienation for people,” Duddy-Burke said. But the members of the pilgrimage have all “found ways to stay in the church,” and maintain their faith, she said, despite these issues.

“Our purpose is to be there as Catholic families and make visible the fact that there are a lot of families in the church that are struggling with these issues,” Duddy-Burke said.

The sole LGBT-related breakout session listed on the World Meeting of Families’ preliminary agenda features a gay man who has embraced a life of celibacy. He will be joined by his mother for the workshop. “There is at times loneliness and frustration in obedience, but there have also been rich rewards,” Ron Belgau, the planned presenter, wrote in a blog about living a celibate lifestyle

Duddy-Burke is glad to see LGBT programming included in the World Meeting of Families, but said celibacy is not a realistic goal for most LGBT Catholics. What the pope and other Catholics need to hear are stories about families who have fully embraced their LGBT members, she said, as well as their faith.

Every family joining the Equally Blessed pilgrimage has its own story to share, Duddy-Burke said, though the Vatican has not responded to the group’s request for an audience with the pope as of Aug. 18.

The group has not planned any demonstrations or protests to get its point across, and instead plans on simply joining the thousands of faithful who will attend the meeting. Many of those in attendance may hold welcoming attitudes toward the LGBT community, as recent poll data would suggest, but they may not feel comfortable expressing these views.

By showing up and demonstrating their faith, Duddy-Burke said the coalition of LGBT families hopes, “to be visible to the folks who don’t feel they can be visible, themselves.”

Stevie Wonder POPS UP in Philadelphia with a Surprise Concert

There is only one thing better than seeing Stevie Wonder in concert. It is seeing Stevie Wonder in concert for free. Stevie Wonder performed in a pop-up concert in Dilworth Park in Philadelphia yesterday afternoon at 3 p.m.

I was tipped off in the morning about what was supposed to be a surprise concert. I have been a fan of Stevie Wonder since I was a child, but have never had the privilege of seeing him in concert. It was around 93 degrees yesterday in Philadelphia, but the heat didn’t prevent any fans from attending. Sweat-soaked bodies stood, moved together and sang along to the music. The energy was positive and flowing with love among the crowd, which filled about half of the park.

The concert started shortly after 3 p.m. and Stevie spoke to the ecstatic crowd explaining why he decided to do the pop-up concerts. He expressed a desire to connect with the people, so he chose to do a show in Washington D.C., Philadelphia and the final in New York later that evening. Before he performed, “Love’s In Need of a Love Today” told the crowd he felt the world needs more love and less negativity. He briefly talked about gun laws and people being held accountable. He shared that he didn’t believe in restricting guns through gun laws, but that each bullet be able to be traced back to its owner. He talked about accountability with law and enforcement being equally accountable for their actions towards one another. Lastly, he said we need to make the world more accessible for people with disabilities. He described ways we can make it a better world for everyone.

He also announced that his “Songs In the Key of Life” tour would complete its 20 final dates in the United States. The tour would stop in Philadelphia in October and conclude in New York in November. Following his performance, there was a brief period of questions from the Philadelphia media. One reporter asked Wonder if this was his last tour and he responded that he’s never done performing to which the crowd responded with cheers and applause.

He continued with the selections, “Sir Duke” and “I Wish” before announcing it was the end of the show. The crowd begged Stevie to play a few more songs. Finally, he called out to Philly’s own, Jazmine Sullivan, who was enjoying the show with the crowd. She joined Stevie Wonder on stage as the band launched into an impromptu performance of “As”. The pop-up concert concluded with Wonder singing, “Superstition”. Stevie Wonder exited the stage with Jazmine Sullivan and the show ended. Crowd dispersed slowly as many stood stunned and excitedly discussing the legendary moment in Philadelphia. Even if it wasn’t a complete surprise, it was still surprising to many fans, such as myself and will not be soon forgotten.
