A wedding is a 2-hour event after which everyone goes to another site for a celebration. The church is once again empty, with the wedding attendees unlike to return ever again, except maybe for another wedding.The question I have is what with and how do you evangelize amongst the secular English young? Does the church offer catechesis on the meaning of Christian marriage and sexual ethics? Anglican Communion, An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Featured Jobs & Calls [Anglican Communion News Service] Research conducted for the Church of England suggests that almost three-quarters of unmarried adults younger than 35 still dream of getting married. The figure is taken from a survey conducted by 9Dot-Research for the Church of England’s Life Events team. It would appear to contradict statistics for the actual number of weddings, which show a continuing decline in both absolute numbers and in the rate: figures for opposite-sex marriage in 2015 show that there were 21.7 marriages per 1,000 unmarried men and 19.8 marriages per 1,000 unmarried women – the lowest rate on record.Read the entire article here.

Masum, a journalist employed by the English-language daily The New Age, who was arrested and tortured by an elite crime and counter-terrorist force, the Rapid Action Battalion (RAB), on 22 October in Dhaka.Masum told Reporters Without Borders from his hospital bed that he thinks he will take months to recover from his injuries.“It is encouraging that the authorities have responded to this incident by creating a commission of enquiry,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The torturers must be punished and Masum must be compensated. But more importantly, the government must give the security forces, including the RAB, clear instructions to put a stop to arbitrary arrests and mistreatment of journalists and human rights activists.”Members of a RAB unit identified as RAB-10 entered Masum’s home on 22 October and tortured him while others pretended to discover drugs there. They then took him to their headquarters in Dhalpur and held him for about 10 hours, torturing him and threatening to kill him with the aim of extracting a confession.Masum said the police officers vented on him the rage they felt towards The New Age’s editor, Nurul Kabir. The newspaper has carried articles linking the RAB to extrajudicial executions and drug cases. Masum was finally freed after The New Age interceded on his behalf.The RAB issued a statement on 24 October expressing regret about incident. The RAB director general told The Daily Star that a commission had been set up to investigate and take measures against those responsible for mistreating Masum. Other arrests have marred the record of the new civilian government as it completes its first year in office. Hasibur Rahman Bilu, The Daily Star’s correspondent in the northern city of Bogra, was held for several hours on trumped-up charges on 19 October.Bilu told Reporters Without Borders he was in Malaysia when, according to complaints brought against him, he allegedly tried to extract money from individuals on false pretences. He added that a former official was involved in this act of harassment.Bangladesh rose more than 10 places in the latest Reporters Without Borders press freedom index but it is still in the bottom third (121st out of 175 countries).
