Archbishop of Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo, Laurent Monsengwo Pasinya arrives to attend a meeting of cardinals summoned by Pope Benedict XVI for a day of reflection at the Vatican, Friday, Nov. 19, 2010, the day before a ceremony to create 24 new cardinals. The top agenda, religious freedom, grew remarkably timely given China's planned ordination Saturday of a bishop who doesn't have the Pope's approval. The Vatican warned China that efforts at reconciliation would be set back if bishops loyal to the pope were forced to attend the ordination. The Vatican said such actions would constitute "grave violations of freedom of religion and freedom of conscience.'' Pasinya is one of the 24 prelates that will be elevated to cardinal on Saturday.

LeBron James' 'I can't breathe' T-shirt the latest display of politics on the playing field

Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James on Monday night during pregame warmups wore an “I can’t breathe” T-shirt, referring to Eric Garner, who died after a New York police officer placed him in a chokehold during an arrest for selling loose cigarettes. The shirt, one of several featuring the slogan that have been seen around the league in recent days after a grand jury declined to indict the officer last week, is just one in a long history of political statements made by athletes on the playing field.
