Pope Francis Weds 20 Cohabiting Couples

  • Description: Pope Francis made headlines this weekend by holding a mass wedding ceremony for 20 cohabiting couples. Predictably, the mainstream media used this as further proof of Francis’ alleged “progressivism.” TIME magazine proclaimed the ceremony as a “hint of coming changes for the Church” and CBS said it was another step Francis’ “push for inclusion.” Contrary to the claims of the media, the marriages performed this weekend were legitimate and in line with Church tradition. The Church is strictly against cohabitation; however, cohabiting couples are allowed to marry in the Church provided they meet certain requirements. Ed Peters, a professor of Canon Law at Sacred Heart Seminary in Detroit, is with us to talk about it.

The Catholic League and the St. Patrick’s Day parade

  • Description: In recent years the New York St. Patrick’s Day Parade has come under fire for “excluding” gay rights groups. This year the parade announced it would allow one gay rights group to march under their own banner, and is open to more groups doing so in the future. News outlets failed to mention that gay rights groups were not exclusively targeted. Parade organizers had a widespread ban against political groups marching in the parade, and also prohibited pro-life groups from marching under their own banner. Despite the change in parade policy, there are no pro-life groups scheduled to march in the 2015 parade. Parade organizers claim that no groups applied, but Catholic League President Bill Donohue says this is because there was no announcement of the policy change. Bill joins us to talk about the controversy and why the Catholic League is done with the parade.
  • Segment Guests:
    • Bill Donohue
      Bill is the president of the Catholic League. He is the author of five books, the most recent being “Why Catholicism Matters: How Catholic Virtues Can Reshape Society in the 21st Century.” He is on the board of advisors for the Washington Legal Foundation and several other organizations.
