How one Catholic Could Redefine (or not) Marriage in America

  • Description: The Supreme Court continues to debate whether the Constitution grants a right to homosexual marriage and a decision is expected next month.

Scalia also had the swing vote when Obamacare was declared Constitutional and when Hobby Lobby won its lawsuit against the HHS mandate. What can we expect from him this time?

Direct to My Desk

  • Description: Today on Kresta in the Afternoon we are going Direct to My Desk. You make the choice of topics. Here are a few suggestions, but don’t forget to bring your own questions, concerns, commendations, criticisms and stories: Why do American Catholics seem afraid to face conflict over hard truths like Hell, contraception, and Christ as the one mediator between God and man? Do we obey God to please Him or make ourselves happy? Is it God’s will that we be happy? If we are not happy, are we out of God’s will? Is there a war on American Christianity? What five regrets does one hospice nurse hear from dying patients?
