Segment 1 – Intro and News


Segment 2 & 3 – The Inclusive NFL Comes out Against Catholicism
The NFL is distancing itself from Kansas City Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker, saying “his views are not those of the NFL as an organization.”  What is this all about?  Bill and Teresa discuss.

Bill Donohue is president of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights and publisher of the league’s journal, Catalyst. He received his Ph.D. in Sociology from New York University and is the author of several books on civil liberties, social issues, and Catholicism. A noted TV personality, Bill is an outspoken defender of the Catholic Church and traditional moral values.  His most recent book is “War on Virtue.” 


Segment 4 – What parents need to know about Roblox and Discord
“Since Roblox’s inception, countless children have been sexually abused and exploited by predators they met on Roblox. Discord enables exploiters to easily contact and groom children. Predators take advantage of Discord’s dangerous designs to entice children into sending sexually explicit images of themselves.”  Tim tells parents what they need to know.

Tim Nester – As Senior Director of Communications at NCOSE, Tim leads the efforts to spread the word about the movement to end sexual exploitation. Using various content and marketing strategies across the website, email, and social media platforms, he is responsible for ensuring that the voice of the organization reaches users and inspires them to take action.




Segment 5 – Bible Verse of the Week
Teresa and Gail talk about Matthew 5:22-24 – “But I say to you, whoever is angry with his brother will be liable to judgment, and whoever says to his brother, ‘Raqa,’ will be answerable to the Sanhedrin, and whoever says, ‘You fool,’ will be liable to fiery Gehenna.”
