  • Description:

    First Topic – Planned Parenthood and the Politics of the Budget Battles

    After the resolution of the budget battle - when we began to hear the details, Marjorie Dannenfelser, President of the Susan B. Anthony List praised pro-life leaders in the House for securing the Dornan Amendment in budget negotiations and pledged to continue to lead the fight to defund Planned Parenthood of taxpayer dollars. The Dornan amendment banned funding for abortions in Washington, D.C. but did not defund Planned Parenthood. Marjorie explains why she sees this as a victory for life.

    Second Topic – Syria, Libya, Iran and the Muslim Brotherhood: A Tour

    As unrest continues across the Middle East, the intervention in Libya continues to be light on details, Syria is cracking down on protests, and a hearing on the Muslim Brotherhood in the US House of Representatives has shown that the US Administration has "no plan" to deal with the Brotherhood, terrorism expert Walid Phares is here to take us on a tour of the trouble spots in the Middle East.

    Third Topic – Pope Benedict XVI and Jesus of Nazareth: Holy Week: From the Entrance Into Jerusalem To The Resurrection

    Jesus of Nazareth is the Son of God, and no myth, revolutionary, or misunderstood prophet, insists Benedict XVI. Indeed, Benedict maintains that the evidence, fairly considered, brings us face-to-face with the challenge of Jesus-a real man who taught and acted in ways that were tantamount to claims of divine authority, claims not easily dismissed as lunacy or deception. Jesus of Nazareth: Holy Week: From the Entrance Into Jerusalem To The Resurrection is Pope Benedict XVI’s follow-up to Jesus of Nazareth: From the Baptism in the Jordon to the Transfiguration. As we enter this Holy Week, Tim Gray is here to take us deeper into the Pope’s thoughts on this most sacred week of the year.
