Kresta in the Afternoon – February 6, 2008 – Hour 2

  • Description:

    First Topic - Super Tuesday: Winners, Losers and Continued Uncertainty

    John McCain earned himself a super Wednesday, a day to savor coast-to-coast primary victories that ratified him as the Republican front-runner, while Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama dug in after a night of divided spoils in a Democratic presidential contest that could stretch to the spring. We look at the results of the closest thing to a nationwide primary that we have seen in many years. A day that may have provided more questions than it did answers.

    Second Topic - Colorado HB1080 - A Threat to Religious Freedom

    Under Colorado's House Bill 1080, faith-based organizations that run programs using public money couldn't hire using their own religious standards. Instead, they would have to abide by state law, which last year added sexual orientation and religion to the list of categories that can't be used to discriminate in hiring. In its effect, it would attack the religious identity of religious nonprofits serving the wider community. And, the Archdiocese of Denver argues, Catholics will bear a disproportionate part of the damage. We talk with Chris Rose, President and CEO of Catholic Charities of Denver.
