Gus talk about Springfield, Illinois Bishop Thomas Paprocki publicly calling out Sen. Dick Durbin, a Catholic who resides in his diocese, for his vote against the late-term abortion bill, which was ultimately turned down. Bishop Paprocki said that Durbin is not allowed to receive communion from any church in his diocese. Gus asks listeners what they think about it.
Also, today is George Washington's birthday so Gus is joined by author Demi who talks about her new children's book, "George Washington," which delves into the first president's faith.
And Gus gives away copies of A Minute in the Church, Vol. 1 to listeners who promise to give it to a friend or family member who's not Catholic.
