In October, President Biden nominated Joseph Donnelly to be the new U.S. Ambassador to the Holy See.

In a study recently published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, six researchers from four universities concluded that there is no evidence to support the idea that LGBT progress comes at the expense of increasing bias against Christians.
