Kresta in the Afternoon – May 12, 2014 – Hour 1

+  U.N. committee on torture grills Vatican on sexual abuse

  • Description: For the second time this year, a Vatican delegation was in Geneva to discuss the obligations of the Holy See under international law with U.N. experts, and for the second time Catholic doctrine on abortion was at issue, drawing media attention and criticism for the mostly obscure U.N. committees. Some on the U.N. committee against torture suggested the Church’s teaching on the inviolable dignity of human life is a form of torture. We talk to David Rivkin about a piece he wrote in the Wall Street Journal last week entitled “Using a ‘Torture’ Claim Against the Catholic Church.”
  • Segment Guests:

+  Paul VI to be beatified in October 4 along with other priests and religious. Why aren’t more laity canonized?

+  Donald Sterling tells Anderson Cooper: I was 'baited' into 'a terrible mistake' / Making roster will be tough task for Sam
