Talking about the "things that matter most" on Dec. 2
4:00 - The Devastation of Pornography in America
Pornography addiction is an epidemic in America. Thousands struggle with it. The sexualization of our culture has made all men and teenage boys vulnerable to pornography use. Pornography addiction affects marriages, families and careers, as well as personal lives. Dr. Peter Kleponis’s mission is to help people avoid or break free of the bonds of pornography use. Through his Fighting Porn in Our Culture…and Winning! He has presented his talks at men’s retreats, priest in-service days, seminaries, religious communities, universities, and marriage conferences. We talk about the devastation of pornography in America and take your calls.
5:00 - Kresta Comments – Religious Liberty in America
As we attended the USCCB General Assembly this week, there was one topic which the Bishops tackled head on and was quite obviously of great concern to them, and that was the topic of eroding religious liberty in America. Al reviews the situation, the history, the current examples, and what we should learn and do.
5:20 – A Debate: Occupy Wall Street: Representative of Catholic Social Teaching?
Occupy Wall Street is a movement that began on September 17 in Manhattan’s Financial District, and has spread to over 100 cities in the United States and actions globally. We ask if the movement has a coherent message, if it is effective, and most importantly, does the Occupy Wall Street movement have a basis in Catholic social teaching? We debate it with Dr. Max Torres and Tony Magliano.
