Kresta in the Afternoon – June 18, 2007 – Hour 1

  • Description:

    First Topic - Devastating loss for marriage and the Church

    On a pivotal social issue, the people will have no voice in the People’s Republic of Massachusetts. The Massachusetts Legislature, meeting as a Constitutional Convention, permitted no debate and then quickly voted to deny the public the right to decide whether same-sex couples should be permitted to “marry” in the state. It’s being ignored by the media and in some cases history is being rewritten. We look at the stunning vote with Robert Knight.

    Second Topic – The end of the PLO?

    An International Internet pedophile ring with 700 members from 35 countries has been taken down today after an undercover investigation conducted by officers in the U.S., Britain, Canada, and Australia. This is one of the largest Internet busts in worldwide history. 31 children have been rescued from sexual exploitation by the operation. Internet sex predator expert R. Stephanie Good says we cannot become complacent because this is just the tip of the iceberg. She joins us.

    Third Topic – The Church in Columbia

    A new monastery in Colombia is a project close to the heart of Bishop Robert Carlson of the diocese of Saginaw, MI. He has been working on the project for years with Fr. Luis Mesa, a Columbian priest. The “Pacem in Terris” (Peace On Earth) Chapel and mission in Villa de Leyva, Colombia are a part of Bishop Carlson’s effort to promote peace in Colombia and the world. Fr. Mesa joins us to discuss the Church in Columbia and the importance of this endeavor.
