Gus is joined by freelance writer David Larson who wrote an article recently for Crisis Magazine entitled "Christians, Beware the Metaverse," which focuses on the announcement last week by Facebook Founder and Chairman Mark Zuckerberg that they're changing their brand name to Meta and their plans to subsume the Internet. David talks about what all that means, what this metaverse will look like and some of the pitfalls. Following this conversation, Gus ask listeners to call in and share how important social media is to you on a scale of zero to 10, with zero meaning no importance at all and 10 meaning very, very important.
Also, last Friday, President Joe Biden, a professed Catholic who supports abortion at all stages of pregnancy and that taxpayers should be forced to fund it, flew to Europe to attend a climate summit with world leaders. His first stop was Rome, where he met with Pope Francis at the Vatican. When asked by a reporter if the pope spoke to him about abortion, Biden replied that it did not come and said, "We just talked about the fact that he was happy that I was a good Catholic and I should keep receiving communion." Gus gives his comments on Biden's statement and opens up the floor for listeners.
