Today on "Kresta in the Afternoon" - August 23, 2012

Talking about the "things that matter most" on August 23

4:00 – One Nation Under God?
From the HHS Mandates to discontinuing funding for the US Bishops’ fight against human trafficking, the Obama administration's overreaching and pervasive secularist policies represent the greatest government-directed assault on religious freedom in American history. So argues Catholic journalist George Neumayr. George is here to show how Obama is waging war on our religious liberties and actively working to create one nation that is NOT under God.

5:00 – On the Meaning of Sex
Everyone in every time and place is interested in sex. Our own time is obsessed by it. One would think that a society obsessed by sex would understand it very well. But the truth is that obsession drives out understanding. We no longer understand even the common sense of sexuality, the things that were common knowledge in supposedly less enlightened times. Acclaimed philosopher J. Budziszewski remedies this problem. He corrects the most prevalent errors about sex, particularly the errors of the sexual revolution, which by mistaking pleasure for a good in itself has caused untold pain and suffering. In restoring the meaning and purpose of sex, the author reclaims what Dante calls “the intelligence of love.”
