Correction on Church Teaching
Hello. I enjoy your episodes very much. While listening to your latest episode, I must point out that the Catholic Church teaches that while homosexual sexual acts, like all sexual acts outside of marriage, are sinful, having a homosexual orientation is not a sin. If a Catholic with a homosexual or lesbian orientation persistently engages in sexual acts, they may not receive Communion until they go to Confession first and repent of their sins. Hope this clears things up with any Catholic listeners like me out there. Thanks & God Bless.
Can we move on, now?
Today’s podcast is again full of gossip minutiae that just makes me cringe. Please can we move on to the real stories. Recently some of the talk here has devolved into something that does not do you or me justice. I know we can do better because I have been listening for awhile and have noticed the recent slide into the mud.
Kudos to Howie
I start my news-consuming day with this podcast. While not right-leaning himself, Howie’s is the only MSM voice calling out the rest of the mainstream media for their shameful and shameless bias against conservatives. He’s that rarest of a rare breed, a neutral reporter. I worked in the media for three decades and there used to be lots of guys like him. Thank goodness there is still. At least one. Keep up the good work, Howie, and know that you can never retire.
