  • Description:

    First Topic - EWTN Announces Lawsuit Against Mandate

    Thirty years ago, a cloistered nun named Mother Angelica started a small television network in her monastery garage to spread the teachings of the Catholic Church. Today, the network she started is suing the federal government for the right to remain faithful to those teachings. Michael Warsaw, President of EWTN is here to discuss it.

    Second Topic - Santorum: The Comeback Kid?

    Republican presidential contender Rick Santorum claimed a surge of momentum and fundraising on Wednesday, a day after his shocking sweep of nominating contests in Colorado, Minnesota and Missouri that dealt a blow to front-runner Mitt Romney. Even though Romney holds strong advantages in financing and organization, his campaign will have to refocus to fight the challenge from Santorum. Paul Kengor has the analysis.

    Third Topic - The HHS Mandate and Universities

    Father Terence Henry, TOR, president of Franciscan University of Steubenville, commenting on the new HHS mandate said, "By making this insurance coverage mandatory, our government has violated the consciences of people of faith and infringed on our rights to practice our religious beliefs. Mandatory contraception and sterilization coverage in college student insurance plans force Catholic colleges to undermine our missions as Catholic institutions." We talk with Fr. Terry and Michael Hernon of Franciscan University.
