Is Anti-Sexual "Code of Conduct" Cupich who is Francis's Top US Point Man in Trouble?

In 2018, Francis's top American collaborator Cardinal Blasé Cupich and  Bishop Daniel Conlon were according to the Conlon "chagrined to be asked to sign a code of conduct":

+Conlon: We bps are capable of malfeasance on other issues than sex. Perhaps there is a blessing in the delay set by Holy See, norms can be more comprehensive. I agree w/ +Cupich I am chagrined to be asked to sign a code of conduct: I promised to be celibate when I was ordained." []

Everyone knows that Cupich is Francis's point man in the United States while the pro-Francis Conlon is known for saying the homosexualization of "the Boy Scouts can benefit youth":

"After that 2015 policy change, several bishops — including Bishop Richard Stika of Knoxville, Tennessee, and Bishop Daniel Conlon of Joliet, Illinois — released statements indicating that they still believed the Boy Scouts can benefit youth."

Bishop Conlon of Joliet: "I agree w/ +Cupich I am chagrined to be asked to sign a code of conduct."

Is the reason Conlon and Cupich are"chagrined to be asked to sign a code of conduct" because "the new standards of conduct [for bishops] could cover sexual relationships with adults"?
Cupich apparently answered that question when he said "“[i]n some of the cases with adults involving clerics, it could be consensual sex ... there’s a whole different set of circumstances”:  
Cupich: 'In some of the cases with adults involving clerics, it could be consensual sex ... there’s a whole different set of circumstances.'

"Exorcist Fr. Ripperger is asking everyone to say this Prayer until the Election is Resolved"

A good friend of the Catholic Monitor got this from a group message. She said "exorcist Fr. Chad Ripperger is asking everyone to say this prayer until the election is resolved": Prayer of Command In His Name and by the power of His Cross and Blood, I ask Jesus to bind any evil spirits, forces and powers of the earth, air, fire, or water, of the netherworld and the satanic forces of nature.  By the power of the Holy Spirit and by His authority, I ask Jesus Christ to break any curses, hexes, or spells and send them back to where they came from, if it be His Holy Will.  I beseech Thee Lord Jesus to protect us by pouring Thy Precious Blood on us (my family, etc.), which Thou hast shed for us and I ask Thee to command that any departing spirits leave quietly, without disturbance, and go straight to Thy Cross to dispose of as Thou sees fit.  I ask Thee to bind any demonic interaction, interplay, or communications.  I place N. (Person, place or thing) under the protectio

High-profile Lawyer Barnes: Amy Coney Barrett would be a Disaster

High-profile trial lawyer Robert Barnes who deals in civil, criminal and constitutional law reported on Twitter that Amy Coney Barrett would be a disaster. The Barnes Twitter report shows that Coney Barrett has " sid[ed] with the government on the lockdowns, on uncompensated takings, on excusing First Amendment infringements & Fourth Amendment violations... [and] exclaimed the benefits of Jacobson, the decision that green-lit forced vaccines & carved out an emergency exception to Constitutional protection in "public health" or "emergency" cases used to justify forced sterilizations & detention camps... [and] hid behind precedent... to prohibit pro-life activists from exercising their free speech ."

This is why he left the prestigious Yale Law School, whom publicly stated their unwill

If Kamala Harris' Father is part White & part Jamaican African and her Mother is Asian-Indian then is she really Black?

  Is Joe Biden's running mate really Black? If Kamala Harris' father is part white and part Jamaican African and her mother is Asian-Indian then is she really Black? tries to figure it out: Kamala Harris, Joe Biden's pick to be the Democratic Party's vice-presidential nominee, is the daughter of an Indian immigrant mother and a Jamaican immigrant father. Her father, as I understand it, has ancestors of both European and African origin. [Welcome new Volokh readers. FYI, I've been working on a book on the American Law of Race, with this forthcoming article the first relevant output. My own opinion is that Ms. Harris should be deemed American, period, but there is no such box on government forms, and if you decline to state your race, someone will decide for you… First things first. There is no multiracial or mixed-race category in American law in any jurisdiction. Nor is there an Indian category. So Harris cannot be legally Indian, nor can she b
