Gus talks about the situation at Brebeuf Jesuit Prep in Indianapolis, which is under the auspices of Archbishop Charles Thompson. One of the teachers is involved in a same-sex marriage and Archbishop Thompson called for the school to terminate him to which the school refused. The archdiocese then disassociated itself from the school so it can no longer call itself Catholic. The Very Rev. Brian G. Paulson of the USA Midwest Province of the Society of Jesus is appealing the decision to the archbishop. If that is unsuccessful, they will appeal to the Vatican. Gus gets listeners' thoughts.
Gus also goes over a couple of recent news items including the Supreme Court's decision to allow the World War I Peace Cross memorial to remain on public land. In a 7-2 vote, the Supreme Court determined that the cross does not violate the First Amendment's establishment clause. Also, Gus plays audio recorded outside an abortion clinic where the father of an unborn baby is tearfully begging his girlfriend not to kill their baby. Gus uses this as an opportunity to counter the argument that abortion is solely a women's issue.
Later, Gus is joined by Catholic author Jonathan Fuqua in the Conversion Corner. Jonathan is the co-editor of the new book "Faith and Reason: Philosophers Explain Their Turn to Catholicism" and a convert from Protestantism.
And we also do a little Friday Prayer Time.
