American scholar and Princeton University Professor Robert George joins Gus to talk about a statement issued by the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, of which he was a signatory, warning of the dangers of the "hate speech" label in that it can be used to stifle civil dialogue. Afterwards, Gus gives his thoughts on the hate speech label and invites listeners to call in and give their thoughts.
Also, with the mainstream media focusing on the number of deaths from COVID-19, Gus invites listeners to come on who've survived or know someone who's survived the coronavirus And, with Sunday masses still not obligatory and following COVID-19 protocol, Gus invites listeners to call in and share their latest experiences.
Plus, it's Monday and that means we do a little Tell Me Something Good.
Gus, Thank you for giving COVID-19 survivors or loved ones who lost someone to this pandemic a place to share. But your introductory comments were off. We wear masks and social distance ourselves because of love, not fear. We cannot know if we are carrying the virus, so we assume we might be, and we do all we can to protect other people. That’s called love, that is following the 2nd greatest commandment (“Love your neighbor as yourself”), that’s called trying to live a life of love. Your comments were tainted by sense of self before love of others.
