Today on Kresta - November 11, 2010

Talking about the "things that matter most" on Nov. 11


4:00 – Decision Points: George W. Bush Back in the Spotlight
George W. Bush, all but invisible since he left the White House nearly two years ago, has reclaimed the spotlight this week with the release of his book "Decision Points," in which he defends his "war on terror" and his decision to invade Iraq among many other decisions he made in the Oval Office. The book covers 14 separate decisions Bush made while in the White House, offering analysis about how he reached them -- which Bush said he hopes will give the public greater insights into his presidency. Historian and political scientist Paul Kengor joins us to examine some of the interviews that the President has given thus far and the light that they have shed on his presidency.

4:20 – Bishops' upcoming exorcism conference responds to queries about rite
To counter the shortage of exorcists in the United States-- Bishop Thomas Paprocki of Springfield (Illinois), chairman of the US bishops’ Committee on Canonical Affairs and Church Governance, says there are only five or six of whom he is aware-- the US bishops are holding a two-day conference on exorcism. Nearly five dozen bishops and 66 priests are expected to attend. Despite the many requests for an exorcism, the actual number of people possessed by a demon is far fewer than people fear, Bishop Paprocki said. We talk to Neal Lozano who reveals Satan's strategies and the sneaky "entrance points" Satan finds to get a toehold in a Christian's life. He helps us acknowledge the doors they may have opened to evil influence, and shows them how to close those doors and walk in God's freedom and abundance.

5:00 – Fr. Vincent Capodanno – The Grunt Padre
On this Veteran’s Day, we take a look at an extraordinary Navy Chaplain - Fr. Vincent Capodanno – who gave his life ministering to his men in Vietnam. It is a heartwarming and gripping story told no better than by Judy McCloskey, petitioner for the Cause of Fr. Capodanno. She joins us.

5:30 – Megamind / Derailed
Megamind is a satiric take on the Superman mythos, seen through the eyes of a supervillain who’s part Lex Luthor, part Brainiac. Instead of a rocket ship bearing an infant survivor from a doomed planet to Earth, there are two ships from two planets. Fate deals the infant survivors very different hands: One is a super-powered golden boy who grows up privileged and smugly superior; the other grows up on the fringes of society, an outcast with one asset: his super-brain. It seems the two are destined to battle each other forever … or are they? We take a look at the film that is #1 at the box office this week with Steven Greydanus. He also gives us a sneak peek at the new Denzel Washington thriller Derailed.
