Catholic Connection – December 23, 2019 – Hour 1

+  How a Divided Left Is Losing the Battle on Abortion

  • Description: "The NYT published a story on America's changing attitudes on abortion and it's getting a ton of attention: How a Divided Left Is Losing the Battle on Abortion. The Democratic presidential field has coalesced around an abortion rights agenda more far-reaching than anything past nominees have proposed, according to a New York Times survey of the campaigns. The positions reflect a hugely consequential shift on one of the country’s most politically divisive issues. Available to discuss the story is Catherine Glenn Foster, President and CEO of Americans United for Life (AUL), America’s first and largest pro-life legal organization. AUL’s legal strategists have been involved in every pro-life case before the U.S. Supreme Court since Roe v. Wade." ... (Originally aired December 3, 2019)
  • Segment Guests:
    • Catherine Glenn Foster

      Catherine Glenn Foster, M.A., J.D., is President and CEO of Americans United for Life, America’s first national pro-life organization and the nation’s premier pro-life legal team. AUL’s legal strategists have been involved in every pro-life case before the U.S. Supreme Court since Roe v. Wade. AUL is the pioneer of the state-based model legislative strategy, which works to save lives today while undermining the so-called “reliance” interest adopted by the Supreme Court in Planned Parenthood v. Casey: the false idea that women “rely” on abortion to succeed in American society. Under Foster’s leadership, AUL pursues and refines a mother-child strategy that looks at the interests and vulnerabilities of both, protecting them from abortion industry abuses.

    • Chris Bray

      I’m a full time traveling Catholic speaker and musician. I still get invitations from Protestant churches to sing (and speak) from my radio success, but I largely speak to those in the Catholic pews who are like I was (feeling like I’m not being fed). I have a huge passion for apologetics (because it was reason, not emotion, that led me to the fullness of truth), and I love seeing people get plugged into their faith (whether through music, a talk, the Sacraments, a book, discussion, etc.).

+  Counterfeit Christs: Finding the Real Jesus Among the Impostors

  • Description: "Jesus asked his disciples, “Who do you say that I am?” Turns out that today, as back then, this question has a lot of different answers. So many groups want to appropriate Jesus—tweaking his identity until he looks and sounds like one of them. But then you no longer have the Lord, says Trent Horn (Why We’re Catholic). You have an impostor." ... (Originally aired May 16, 2019)
