Talking about the "things that matter most" on Feb. 13
4:00 - Conscience Protection: The Congressional Strategy
Cardinal Daniel DiNardo of Galveston-Houston, chairman of the Committee on Pro-Life Activities of the USCCB, has urged support a bipartisan bill protecting conscience rights in health insurance. The bill was introduced by Rep. Jeff Fortenberry (R-NE) and is HR 1179. The bill is more important now then ever before. One of the architect of the bill, David Wilson is here.
5:00 - Bishops Were Not Invited to White House HHS Discussions
Despite the President’s “compromise” on the government’s assault on religious liberty, the White House has not offered any concessions to the U.S. bishops’ conference and NEVER contacted them about possible negotiations. Bishop William Lori of Bridgeport, Conn., said “no one from the administration has approached the United States Catholic Conference of Bishops for discussions on this matter of a possible ‘compromise.’” Bishop Lori joins us.
5:20 – Responding to “The Bishops Deserved This”
There are some now, even Catholics, that are beginning to make the case that the Catholic Bishops deserve what they are getting with the HHS Mandate and the attack on conscience. Paul Rahe argues that “the majority of the bishops, priests, and nuns sold their souls to the devil.” Are we reliving 9/11 when some shouted “The US deserves it.” Al and Jason Hall debunk this line of thinking.
