Shannon Zieg joins Gus today in the Conversion Corner. She is a convert from agnosticism who great up in Georgia; the heart of the Bible Belt. Shannon states that, growing up in the area of the United States, the only thing more stigmatizing than being a Catholic was being an agnostic.
Next up, Eva Muntean, co-chair of the Walk for Life West Coast, calls in to talk about the annual event, which takes place on Saturday, January 23rd in San Francisco. She tells Gus of the history of the event, what the plans are this year and who some of the speakers will be. One of them is David Daleiden, of the Center for Medical Progress, which released undercover videos of Planned Parenthood executives negotiating for the sale of fetal organs and tissue last year. Eva states that, it was at the 2013 Walk for Life that David finalized his undercover operation.
And, inspired by today’s First Reading, which recounts the story of David vs. Goliath, Gus asks listeners what Goliath’s they’ve struggled with and/or conquered…we got answers from pornography, to chronic pain to the death of a child. Seguing from that conversation, Gus asks listeners about times when they’ve encountered peace in the midst of a trial in their lives.
