Big Morning Glory line-up for tomorrow! With President Trump in Israel visiting the Holy Sepulchre and the Western Wall, we have much to discuss with regard to improving conversations on Judeo-Christian dialogue. Thus far, Middle East leaders have been impressed by Trump’s embrace and hopeful for a more peaceful future.
We’ll also be discussing a new report from the National Center on Sexual Exploitation that exposes a tie between Google and Backpage.com, a website most known for soliciting prostitution and human trafficking. Lisa Thompson will join us to discuss in greater detail – even the lobbyists hired to work on Capitol Hill in tearing down the Consumer Decency Act–the last leg standing that somewhat polices internet pornography that is running rampant. This story is not being covered by mainstream media–and we hope Google will change it’s ways!
Other guests include Drew Gonshorowski of Heritage on the CBO score of the American Healthcare Act – set to be released on Wednesday. As lawmakers continue to work to dismantle Obamacare, President Trump has reportedly told advisers he wants to stop Obamacare payments to insurers. Politico reports that Trump has suggested cutting off the payments as a way to quickly bring Democrats to the bargaining table for health reform. Heritage experts say that House Republicans took a major step in the process of repealing and replacing Obamacare. It’s now up to the Senate to act and go even further in eliminating the mandates and regulations from the Affordable Care Act that have so disrupted the health insurance markets.
Father Maurice Emelu will also be with us to discuss his new book, Our Journey to God: An African Priest Explores the Power of Faith from Abraham to You. There is one commonality among every saint: they all have deep faith in God that was lived out in their daily lives. Fr. Maurice Emelu explains here how the faith of Abraham, Moses, Mary, and other biblical figures evolved, and how their journey serves as a roadmap for how our faith-life can be built, nourished, and grown.
Drawing on his West African roots as well as his many years of pastoral ministry, Fr. Emelu combines the story-telling culture of Africa with a Western worldview to offer a unique perspective on the nature of faith and what it means to grow closer to the Lord.
We’ll have the ‘deep’ fried Dominican with us tomorrow! Father Aquinas Guilbeau brings his ragin’ Cajun Catholic faith and his great work with Aleteia – so you won’t want to miss out!
‘See’ you bright and early!
