“Kresta in the Afternoon”— August 26, 2014

Talking about the “things that matter most” on August 26

 

4:20 – An open letter to Richard Dawkins

 

Last week, atheist Dr. Richard Dawkins said it is immoral to not abort babies who have Down’s syndrome.  JD Flynn, an assistant to Bishop Conley of Lincoln, Nebraska and the adoptive father of two Down’s syndrome children, responded with a letter to Dawkins. JD told Dawkins that although his children suffer, they suffer with joy. He invited Dawkins to have dinner with the family and see if his children’s suffering really merited their deaths. JD is with us to talk about his letter and his experience raising two Down’s syndrome children.

5:20 – The Catholic Guide to Depression

 

The death of Robin Williams has sparked discussions about depression and suicide, particularly among Catholics. How does depression affect a person’s ability to make rational decisions? What causes depression? Can it be treated and, if so, how? Dr. Aaron Kheriaty, author of the “Catholic Guide to Depression,” gives us his insights.

 

 

5:40 – What Catholics need to know about their money

 

With all the coverage of ISIS, riots in Ferguson, the border crisis, Ukraine and other issues, there hasn’t been much in the news lately on finances and the stock market. Yesterday, Burger King announced that they are considering buying Tim Horton’s and moving their base to Canada for lower corporate taxes.  What does financial news mean for Catholics? George Schwartz, CEO of Schwartz Investment Counsel and co-manager of the Ave Maria Rising Dividend Fund, joins us to talk about how Catholics should look differently at their money and the markets.
