Talking about the “Things That Matter Most” on April 1, 2015
4:00 – Media Bias and the Indiana RIFRA Case: A Firsthand Account
Ave Maria Radio’s Teresa Tomeo was interviewed by a local TV station last night about Indiana’s Religious Freedom law. She presented her view reasonably and logically; the excerpts of the interview that aired made her sound confused, stubborn and close-minded. Teresa joins us to talk about her side of the story and how the media is once again warping the facts.
4:20 – How I became Putin’s #1 Enemy
Bill Bowder’s life story sounds like something out of a Tom Clancy novel. He began on the South Side of Chicago and ended up in Moscow, making his fortune in investment funds after the Soviet Union collapsed. He exposed corrupt officials who were robbing from his companies and Vladimir Putin had him expelled from the country. And that’s only the beginning of the story. Bill joins us today.
5:00 – An Abortion Activist Threw a Molotov Cocktail at Me
Late last month a pro-abortion activist threw a Molotov Cocktail at a group of pro-lifers outside a Planned Parenthood. The event has received almost no coverage from the mainstream media. Today we’re talking to Ruth Allwein, who was in the group that day.
5:20 – Narcissism Kills: A Lesson from the Germanwings Disaster
News outlets have been reporting for several days that Andres Lubitz suffered from clinical depression and had received treatment for it several times. They speculate that his depression is what drove him to commit mass murder. But is that a reasonable conclusion? Does depression really lead a person to fly a plane into the side of a mountain? Dr. Rick Fitzgibbons joins us with another theory.
5:40 – Dissent Trumps Faith in New “Catholic” LGBT Film
We’ve previously discussed “Owning Our Faith,” a highly sentimental expose of gay Catholics intended to shift perceptions of Church teaching on sexuality. Today we’re joined by Rachel Lu to talk about the views presented in the video.
