Today on Kresta - May 29, 2009

Talking about the "things that matter most" on May 29

3:00 – Holy Sex

Common wisdom portrays sex and the Church to be at odds, yet studies show that Catholics have better sex, and more often. In his witty, frank, and refreshingly orthodox way, Dr. Greg Popcak draws from the beautiful truths of Catholic teaching to show people of all faiths about rich and satisfying sexuality. Holy Sex! A Catholic Guide to Toe-Curling, Mind-Blowing, Infallible Loving

4:00 – Two of the Big Three in Bankruptcy – Will GM Stay in Detroit?
The US government would own 72.5 percent of General Motors under a proposed bankruptcy reorganization that now has support of GM bondholders. The US Treasury agreed to the plan to create a new company that buys the assets of the automaker and that bondholders who had rejected an earlier proposal "support the economic terms" of the new plan. US Congressman Thaddeus McCotter (R- MI) is here to discuss the bankruptcy and whether GM will stay in Detroit.

4:20 – The Apostle of Common Sense has a birthday

5:00 – Original Sin: A Cultural History
Alan Jacobs
introduces us to the world of original sin, which he describes as not only a profound idea, but a necessary one. Replete with examples drawn from a number of different cultural expressions, including literature, film, and philosophy, he introduces us to the complexity of explaining how human beings act evilly toward one another. Original Sin: A Cultural History

5:40 – Disney’s Up
What is Up? It is a love story. A tragedy. A soaring fantasy, and a surreal animated comedy. A three-hankie weepie and a cliffhanging thriller. A cross-generational odd-couple buddy movie; a story of man and dog. A tale of sharply observed melancholy truths and whimsically unfettered nonsense. It’s Disney’s latest animated release and it is in theaters today. Steven Greydanus has the review.
