Talking about the “Things That Matter Most” on November 30, 2018
4:00 – Asia Bibi is Free – but What Happens Now?
Last week a Pakistani court overruled a blasphemy verdict against Asia Bibi, a Catholic mother held in prison since 2010. She’s free, but her ordeal is far from over. Protesters have blocked highways and closed schools and businesses, demanding she be put to death. We get the latest on the situation from Mindy Belz.
4:20 – Celebrating Saint Paul VI
Pope Paul VI was one of the most perceptive popes in the modern era, foreseeing both the rise of secularism and its negative effect on the family and the human soul. So why has so much of his writing been forgotten? Matthew Bunson joins us with a look at how his prophetic teachings are needed now more than ever.
5:00 – How to reign in the Administrative State
The Founding Fathers designed our government so that no branch would have too much power over the others. But over the years the Executive Branch has gained more and more control, gradually taking over the legislative role of Congress. Who is responsible for allowing this administrative state to happen, and how can we change it? We talk with Peter Wallison.
5:40 – Update on the Red Hat Report
During our time at the Authentic Catholic Reform conference this fall we spoke with Jacob Imam, who had just launched Better Church Governance, a lay-driven group which is preparing a Red Hat Report on the Cardinals in the Church and is also helping investigate cases of abuse and corruption. He joins us with a look at the work they are doing.
