     Topic One – Kresta Comments: What Catholics Should Learn From 9/11

    Topic Two – Secular Sabotage: How Liberals Are Destroying Religion and Culture in America

    Secularism. This assault is not happening from accident or whim. It is happening because disaffected liberals have deliberately set out to upend our Judeo-Christian traditions. Indeed, they are determined to tear down the traditional norms, values, and institutions that have been part of American society from its founding. The cultural debris that these saboteurs have created will take decades to clean up. In feisty prose Bill Donohue explores our nation where a college student is threatened with expulsion because she prayed on campus, a civil rights organization protests a statue of Jesus found on the ocean floor and a housewife sues a school district to stop the singing of Rudolph The Red-nosed Reindeer at a school choral production. These are just a few examples cited that demonstrate a culture descending into madness. He joins us.

    Topic Three – The Cross at Ground Zero

    Millions of Americans gazed in disbelief as the magnificent World Trade Center buildings collapsed into piles of rubble on September 11, 2001. After the shock and horror wore off, the questions began. Father Benedict J. Groeschel, C.F.R., addresses many questions in his book, The Cross at Ground Zero. He reassures us that the iron cross, found at the world trade center, leads to the cross of Jesus which stands at the center of all pain, all suffering, indeed all history. He explains that Jesus did not come to take away suffering. He came to sanctify suffering by His presence.
