Shakespeare’s musings on religion are like curious whispers – they require…

first_img The Anatomy of Fear Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. Caliban implores his fellow island dwellers to listen to the noises in “The Tempest.” The Print Collector/Getty Images You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Opinion | Faith & InspirationBy Anthony D. Baker, Professor of Systematic Theology, Seminary of the SouthwestWilliam Shakespeare’s role as a religious guide is not an obvious one.While the work of the bard, whose birthday was celebrated on April 23, has been scoured at various times over the past four centuries for coded messages about Catholicism, Puritanism or Anglicanism, the more common view is that his stunning explorations of humanity leave little space for serious reflection on divinity. Indeed, some Shakespeare scholars have gone further, suggesting that his works display an explicit atheism.But as a scholar of theology who has published a book exploring Shakespeare’s treatment of faith, I believe the playwright’s best religious impulses are displayed neither through coded affirmations nor straightforward denials. Writing at a time of great religious polarization and upheaval, Shakespeare’s greatest pronouncements on faith are more like curious whispers – and, like whispers, they require deep listening to be heard.Religious noisesI see an invitation to this deep listening in one of Shakespeare’s most unusual plays, “The Tempest.” “Be not afeared,” the half-man, half-beast Caliban tells his companions as they arrive on the island where the play is set, “the isle is full of noises, sounds and sweet airs that give delight and hurt not.”It is a striking passage, made all the more so coming from a foul-smelling creature accused of attempted rape and repeatedly called “monster.” But in it, Shakespeare seems to be suggesting that there are dimensions of reality that many of us miss – and we might be surprised to find out who among us is paying attention.Subtleties like this show up differently across Shakespeare’s plays. “Romeo and Juliet” is not in any overt sense a theological play. But as the tragedy comes to a somber denouement, we have the line “See, what a scourge is laid upon your hate, That heaven finds means to kill your joys with love.”While there is no clear naming of gods or fates, Shakespeare implies that some great power transcends the destructive feud between the Montagues and Capulets, the families of the two lovers. He calls into question the earthly power of the two houses – heaven, he implies, is also at work here.Tumultuous timesShakespeare was, I believe, in constant search of subtle ways to imagine divine intervention within the human realm. This is all the more impressive given the fraught religious times in which he lived.Closet Catholic or atheist? Or is it more complicated? Photo by Hulton Archive/Getty ImagesThe late 16th century witnessed religious and political polarization greater, even, than our own. Decades earlier, King Henry VIII had separated the Anglican church from Rome and created a Protestant England. His daughter Elizabeth, who sat on the throne for the first half of Shakespeare’s writing career, was excommunicated by Pope Pius V for continuing in her father’s footsteps. The queen responded by making the practice of Catholicism a crime in England.So even before Elizabeth’s successor, James I, outlawed overt theological humor or criticism on stage, artists hoping to engage in religious themes were under considerable restrictions.These upheavals affected Shakespeare directly. Shakespeare’s family had deep ties to Roman Catholicism, as likely did some of his closest associates. For any one of them to express doubts about the Anglican prayer book, or even to avoid the Anglican parish on Sunday, was to put themselves under suspicion of treason.There is little in the way of biographical detail to help scholars looking for Shakepeare’s religious beliefs. Instead, they have generally relied on explicit references to familiar religious language or character types – the Catholic priest in “Romeo and Juliet,” for instance – in speculating about Shakespeare’s faith. Some have suggested that clues and codes in his play suggest the playwright was a closeted Catholic. But to me it is more in what he doesn’t say, or where he finds new ways of saying something old, that Shakespeare is theologically at his most interesting.‘God’s spies’Shakespeare’s faith and how he expresses it are explored in a 2017 play by poet Rowan Williams, a theologian and former head of the Church of England. In it, Williams imagines a young Shakespeare in search of a new language for things religious, and dissatisfied with the heavily politicized options before him.In a pivotal scene, “young Will” explains to his Jesuit mentor that, despite the attractiveness of their radical Catholic cause, he cannot join: “The old religion is the only, the only – picture of things that speaks to me, yes, but it’s as if there were still voices all around me wanting to make themselves heard and they don’t all speak one language or tell one tale, and all that – it would haunt me if I tried what you do, and it would make me turn away from the pains and the question, because I’d know that there’d always be more than the old religion could say and it still had to be heard.”In other words, while Catholicism “speaks” to young Will, he believes there is more that “still had to be heard.”The voices that Williams’ Shakespeare wants to hear are similar, I believe, to those that Caliban talks of in “The Tempest.” So young Will does not join the Catholic cause; instead, he goes off in search of ways to stay with “the pains and the question.” Williams is suggesting that Shakespeare’s subsequent plays are an attempt to let all these complex and difficult voices “be heard.”They are his attempt to give voice to religious noise beyond the range of the religious certainty of his age.We see this in “King Lear.” Lear spends the entire play cursing the gods for the lack of love and respect his children show him. But when the heaven-cursing rants finally subside, the play gives its audience a beautiful and painful reconciliation scene with his daughter Cordelia. He discovers in his daughter’s forgiveness a kind of higher vantage point, one from which they might both “take upon’s the mystery of things, As if we were God’s spies.”Like Caliban in “The Tempest,” Lear learns to hear those voices just out of human range.Similarly, Shakespeare asks his audience to listen and watch differently…[believing there is more that still has to be heard.]This article is republished from The Conversation under a Creative Commons license.

Estimated $17 Billion April Credit Gain Only $8.2 Billion

April marked the smallest increase in consumer borrowing in six years. The Federal Reserve reported total consumer credit rising 2.6 percent, increasing the $8.2 billion in April compared to March’s revised $19.5 billion. According to MarketWatch, economists estimated a $17 billion gain in consumer credit for April.The Consumer Credit Report covers the two main types of credit: revolving and nonrevolving. April showed a slight increase in nonrevolving credit, which is closed-end credit for consumers who will repay on an arranged repayment schedule—mainly for motor vehicle or education loans. This main source of credit growth rose at an annual rate of 2.9 percent, its slowest pace since August 2011.Revolving credit, mostly credit cards secured or unsecured by collateral allowing consumers to borrow a prearranged limit and pay back in one or more installments, increased 1.8 percent in April at an annual rate. This is quite a drop from March’s 6.5 percent increase.According to MarketWatch, two-thirds of U.S. economic growth comes from consumer spending, which was also at a slow start for the year. Consumer spending rose at a 0.6 percent annual rate in the first quarter, which is down from 2016 Q2 growth of 3.5 percent and spurred a Q1 GDP growth rate of 1.2 percent annually.In an effort to help consumers better understand what is going on in consumer credit, this Friday Equifax Investor Relations Doug Brandberg and Jeff Dodge along with Equifax Chief Economist Amy Crews-Cutts will host a live webcast on their Quarterly United States Consumer Credit Trends reports.

DOJ sides with NFL, Raiders in Oakland antitrust lawsuit and the city hits back

first_img Written by July 19, 2019 /Sports News – National DOJ sides with NFL, Raiders in Oakland antitrust lawsuit and the city hits back FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmail33ft/iStock(OAKLAND, Calif.) — Oakland is challenging the Department of Justice over a case based on the Raiders’ decision to move out of the California city. In December 2018, after the NFL team announced their plan to move out of Oakland and to Las Vegas, Nevada, at the start of the 2020 football season, the city sued the team, the NFL and the league’s other 31 teams for breach of contract through antitrust violations, alleging the move to Vegas is “illegal.” The city of Oakland argued they are due damages upwards of $240 million and for the diminished value of the Oakland Coliseum.“The Raiders’ illegal move lines the pockets of NFL owners and sticks Oakland, its residents, taxpayers and dedicated fans with the bill,” city attorney Barbara Parker said in a statement when the suit was filed.But in a statement of interest revealed this week, the DOJ said the city is not allowed to recover lost tax revenues and that it is an inappropriate use of antitrust laws.“Oakland’s claims for lost tax revenues should not be the basis for the Court to find that the City has standing to pursue antitrust claims against the Raiders or the NFL in this case,” the department wrote, according to court documents.Now, Oakland is challenging that with an opposition memo, after the NFL called for the case to be dismissed.“Weeks later, months after briefing on Defendants’ Motion to Dismiss was completed, and only one week before argument on Defendants’ Motion to Dismiss, the DOJ has appeared in this case and filed the Statement focusing on a single premature, non-dispositive issue. Without reasonable or legitimate grounds, the DOJ essentially restates an argument already made in Defendants’ Motion to Dismiss. The Court should not expend its time and energy on an untimely brief filed by an uninterested third-party, raising a cumulative, non-dispositive and premature argument,” the city said in the memo.According to the Department of Justice, their support for the defendants isn’t out of the ordinary.“The Antitrust Division routinely files statements of interest in antitrust cases where it believes that the court would benefit from an objective and proper application of the antitrust laws. In the past 18 months, the Division has filed 22 statements of interest or amicus briefs in courts throughout the country related to a variety of antitrust issues,” a Justice Department spokesperson told ABC News.The case has yet to be decided by U.S. District Judge Joseph C. Spero. Last month, the NFL sought to dismiss the case because they say the city has “no more than a shareholder or landlord” interest in the team’s movement.A similar lawsuit was filed against the Los Angeles Rams, by the team’s old city, St. Louis, but doesn’t allege an antitrust violation. That suit alleges a breach of contract, fraud, illegal enrichment and interference in business by the Rams, the NFL and its teams. The case could reach trial, if the sides do not agree to settle.The statement of interest in favor of the NFL comes at a time when the administration’s relationship with the NFL has been contentious after the president has been critical of players who kneel for the national anthem.“Wow, NFL first game ratings are way down over an already really bad last year comparison,” President Donald Trump tweeted at the start of the 2018 NFL season last September, repeating a claim he previously made about NFL ratings last season. “Viewership declined 13%, the lowest in over a decade. If the players stood proudly for our Flag and Anthem, and it is all shown on broadcast, maybe ratings could come back? Otherwise worse.”At a campaign event in Alabama on Sept. 22, 2017, Trump called on NFL owners to fire players who take a knee, suggesting they say, “get that son of a b—- off the field! He’s fired, he’s fired!”Several players continued to raise their fists or take a knee during the NFL’s 2018 preseason to protest police brutality against black people and people of color.In August of 2018, the president blasted NFL players who protested during preseason games, and suggested that they should be “suspended without pay.”The Raiders and the City of Oakland have not returned ABC News’ request for comment.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Phil Davidson, and over 100 guests were on hand to see Rear Adm. Gene Black relieve Rear Adm. Dale Horan as commander, Carrier Strike Group 8. Along with offering compliments to the job Horan had done as CSG-8, Davidson provided advice to each current and prospective commander in attendance.“Commanders and commanding officers, the mission is what you are here for,” said Davidson. “Please don’t believe that your service is about a few moments in combat. Your service is about getting up every day, putting on that uniform, coming to work and plunging into the line for that quarter-inch gain. Whether you do this for four years or 44 years, that’s what you’re in for. That’s what will be expected of you and that’s what will be expected of your people. That is indeed service – service to the country.” Horan assumed command of CSG-8 in July 2016, a strike group comprised of 10 ships and one air wing. As commander he led Truman through a 10-month Planned Incremental Availability (PIA) at Norfolk Naval Shipyard (NNSY), as well as successful Sea Trials and Flight Deck Certification periods. Under his leadership, Truman became the first aircraft carrier to successfully complete a PIA on-time in nearly a decade.Horan’s next assignment will be as Director, Joint Strike Fighter Fleet Integration Office.Black, who most recently served as Deputy Commander, U.S. Naval Forces Central Command, only spoke briefly, but took time to reach out to his new team.“To the men and women of this strike group – thank you for the warm welcome,” said Black. “I am thrilled to serve with you and I am thrilled to be back at sea. I very much look forward to meeting all of you in the coming weeks and months.” In the fleet, Black served as commanding officer of guided-missile cruiser USS Leyte Gulf (CG 55) and guided-missile destroyer USS Mason (DDG 87). He served as executive officer of USS Ramage (DDG 61) and the Weapons and Combat Systems Officer aboard USS Normandy (CG 60). In addition, he was the Fire Control Officer aboard USS Leyte Gulf (CG 55) and the Combat Information Center Officer and Damage Control Assistant aboard guided-missile frigate USS Gallery (FFG 26).CSG-8’s subordinate commands include Truman, Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 1, guided-missile cruisers USS Normandy (CG 60) and USS Anzio (CG 68) as well as ships assigned to Destroyer Squadron 28; guided-missile destroyers USS Arleigh Burke (DDG 51), USS Ramage (DDG 61), USS Gonzalez (DDG 66), USS Bulkeley (DDG 84), USS Bainbridge (DDG 96), USS Forrest Sherman (DDG 98), USS Gravely (DDG 107) and USS Jason Dunham (DDG 109).
