The Pope vs. the President
Pope Francis says that if President Trump is a good pro-lifer, he should understand that the “family” is the cradle of life and you must defend its “unity,” i.e. maintain the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. Why is the Pope so eager to scold Trump about DACA and associate it with “family” and “pro-life”?
If the Pope truly believes the “family” is the cradle of life and that its unity needs to be defended, he would be a lot more concerned that over 50 percent of U.S. marriages end in divorce (over 20 percentof Catholic marriages) and only 46 percentof U.S. children under 18 live in households headed by two heterosexual parents in their first marriage. These statistics represent a lot bigger challenge to “family” and “unity” than maintaining DACA. In fact, the Pope seems to lean toward being more accepting and accommodating of non-traditional families.
It seems pretty obvious that the Pope is a liberal progressive and is much more focused on his dislike of Trump than he is focused on "family" and defending family "unity." JOSEPH BRAFFORD, BEAVERCREEK

On the story about the Columbus Crew soccer team considering a move to Austin:
Roger Schaub: They were the first team to build a soccer-specific stadium. Half the teams I ref are sponsored by the Crew. They couldn't. Best fan base in the country.
Craig Turner: Why should taxpayers build a no public company a stadium? That is NOT the public's responsibility. Go ahead, leave.
Rob May: The owner doesn't intend to move them, but is using it as a bargaining chip in getting a new stadium.
Scott Rairden: From what I've read, he only bought the team to move them, so a new stadium deal is simply an excuse. As a soccer fan in the area, it sucks.
Marty Jones: Sounds like the browns in the '90s all over again.
Kevin Barlow: Money talks.
