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.
Several people including you, Howie, have laughed about the fact that Chavez has been dead for years as if Sidney Powell said Chavez had been involved in this conspiracy regarding converted Trump votes. That’s not what she said.
She said Chavez had worked with Dominion to change votes for him in his election. Powell’s charges are not believable in terms of Trump, but since you are kind of an “ombudsman” on the media, you should be pointing that out instead of repeating the joke that Chavez has been dead for years.
This kind of thing is why we don’t trust the media!
OH.MY.STARS! I thought I was the only one when I started thinking recently that Howard Kurtz has joined the Never Trumpers. However, in reading the reviews, I see that others have also picked up on this. C’mon, man! Let’s bring back fair and balanced! Especially because you claim to be a journalist who decries bias in reporting!
