The Catholic Church Is In A Crisis Right Now, And 3 Nuns Are Responsible

The Catholic Church is in a crisis right now, and three superhero nuns are fighting to change everything for the better. One carries magical nunchucks, one can fly, and one can see through walls. OK, I sort of exaggerated a bit, but take all the badassery I just described and concentrate the sentiment into these awesome sisters, and you have the nuns of "Radical Grace." Regardless of your religious beliefs, I think we can all agree to jump on this bus.

Vauhxx Booker, a civil rights activist from Bloomington, Indiana, claims that a group of white men threatened to lynch him during an altercation on July 4 near Lake Monroe, but he was saved by onlookers who intervened.

Video taken during the incident shows he was held down by a group of men who pinned him to a tree in a wooded area. Booker says that while he was being held down, the men threatened to break his arms, repeatedly said "get a noose," and told his friends to leave the area.

The men later let him go after being confronted by onlookers who gathered at the scene.

The incident began, according to Booker, when he and his friends were making their way to the lake to see the lunar eclipse when a white man on an ATV told them they were trespassing. When Booker and his friends continued to walk to the lake, the man on the ATV and his friends allegedly shouted "white power" at them, which is when things turned violent.
