Kresta in the Afternoon – February 1, 2016 – Hour 2

+  Fighting Planned Parenthood, the National Abortion Federation and now Harris County Texas

  • Description: An aggressive legal strategy pursued by Planned Parenthood is bearing fruit in TX. In a surprise move last week, a grand jury in Harris County not only cleared Planned Parenthood's Gulf Coast affiliate but also indicted the two pro-life activists, David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt, who had prompted the probe in the first place. They have both been charged with using fake driver's licenses and Daleiden for violating Texas' prohibition on the purchase and sale of human organs - the same law he accused Planned Parenthood of breaking - when he sent an email to Planned Parenthood seeking to buy fetal tissue. David joins us.

+  Helping Catholic Leaders Build Amazing Parishes (2 segments)

  • Description: A new movement seeking to unite the faithful and their pastors in the formation of thriving parishes has seen a wide scope of interest throughout the U.S. in the time since it was started a little more than a year ago. The Amazing Parish movement seeks to give Catholic leaders, both clergy and lay, the resources and support they need to create strong, fruitful parishes. We talk with co-founder Pat Lencioni who says “For most Catholics, the parish is where they come to know Christ and the Church. If parishes aren’t vibrant and strong, it’s really tough for most Catholics to connect with their faith.
