Today on "Kresta in the Afternoon" - June 19, 2013

Talking about the "things that matter most" on June 19

4:00 – Kresta Comments

4:20 – Progressivism: A Theory and A Critique
Progressivism is a diverse, international movement that arose in response to industrialization in Europe and North America. Concentrating especially on the United States, this lecture summarizes the principal ideas promoted by progressive intellectuals and examines their relationship to traditional Christian understandings of politics and society. We talk to Dr. Kevin Schmiesing about it

4:40 – Diocese of Saginaw Celebrates 75 Years and Creates New Evangelization Position
The Diocese of Saginaw is celebrating its 75th Anniversary and we take the opportunity to talk with Bishop Joseph Cistone about the anniversary, the Diocese and his new focus on Evangelization.

5:00 – President Obama and Catholic Schools / St. Joseph in the Eucharistic Prayers / Pope Francis and His Messages

5:20 – Why Jean-Jacques Rousseau, St. Augustine and John Locke Matter
Perhaps the most influential Church father of all time, St. Augustine is also the first author to deal with the problem of politics and civil society in light of Christianity.  Kishore Jayabalan will examine his critique of pagan Rome and natural theology and what this means for the relationship between the City of God and the City of Man today. We also look at Jean-Jacques Rousseau, and John Locke under the same lens.

  1. Al - President Obama has speech writers. HE WAS NOT ONLY GIVING HIS OWN OPINION: it was PRIMARILY a paid agenda. The agenda he touts is the one he is paid by ... i am sorry, but ... by, zionist controllers in this country including all the dual citizens in the government. It is in the interest of 'the Jews' to secularize the culture because they feel safer that way. Professor Kevin MacDonald can help anyone understand; he has been given tenure, and can't be fired. Look him up online - videos on youtube.

    Obama is not referring to 'Jewish schools' - . Here is a video which will help. Most people are very unaware of the degree to which both religion, specifically Catholicism, and, sorry but it is true, the white race, are being targeted. WE ARE GOING TO DISAPPEAR unless guilt-ridden (inappropriate guilt) European Americans stand up.

    Jewish interests WANT MASSIVE secularization, and massive immigration - they always have been in the vanguard for those issues... but, notice how homogenous Israel is. It is ALL about race, not religion, for the Jews. But Obama will NEVER target their schools.
