Talking about the “Things That Matter Most” on March 19, 2018
4:00 – Red Rose Rescue Protestors Sentenced
Monica Miller and her fellow Red Rose Rescuers have received their sentence. In addition to paying fines, they must pay restitution to the abortion clinic. They may not have contact with each other or go within 500 feet of an abortion clinic for the next year. Their attorney, Rob Muise, joins us to discuss their plans.
4:20 – Feast of St Joseph – Who was he?
Today is the Solemnity of St Joseph, the Husband of Mary. He’s one of our most popular saints and one of the most important people in the New Testament, and yet the Scriptures mention very little about him. The gospels mention him by name only 15 times and he is never directly quoted. Who was he, and how did he become so popular? We’ll talk with Sandra Miesel.
5:00 – Social Science Apologetics: The Cognitive Differences Between Men and Women
In 1998 CalTech neuroscientist Nirao Shah decided to study sex-based differences in human brains using the latest available technology. At the time, he was basically on his own. The neuroscience community had largely considered any observed sex-associated differences in cognition and behavior in humans to be due to the effects of cultural influences. But in the years since there has been a sea change as new technologies have generated a growing pile of evidence that there are inherent differences in how men’s and women’s brains are wired and how they work. Dr Greg Popcak joins us with more.
5:20 – The History of St. Patrick
St. Patrick is among the best-known saints and has one of the most iconic feast days. What do we know about his life, especially his early years? How did he come to be a missionary and why did he choose to go to Ireland? We’ll look at his life with Philip Freeman.
