The Catholic Citizen is dedicated to helping Catholics navigate how to live their faith in a secular world and engage the culture to help build the Kingdom of God, particularly in politics. Brought to you by the biased opinion of Peter Range, the show is a mix of faith, culture, politics, the pro-life movement and much more.
Biden, Bishops, and Sin
Pete comes in hot speaking on leadership in the Church. Our US Catholic Bishops chose not to defend the sanctity of the Eucharist by refusing to address the issue of giving communion to high-profile Catholics who stand against fundamental Catholic teachings. He goes on to discuss religious freedom in the US, science being overridden by a twisted form of social justice, Nigeria’s continuing violence against Christians, and progress in the Pro-life movement. Ultimately we should be encouraged because faith and faithfulness will change the course of the world! All of this and more in today’s episode!
The Church Needs to Be WOKE
In this episode Pete addresses the continual degradation of American society as we move further away from a God centered culture. Evidence of it can be seen in education as racial discrimination at Colleges and Universities keeps Asians and Whites at a disadvantage when applying for admissions. Pete goes on to discuss vaccines vs natural immunity and the abandoning of common sense, Biden’s vaccine mandate being halted, CRT in the Boy Scouts, The government giving money to illegal immigrants, and why we, as church, need to become W.O.K.E. All of this and more in todays episode!
Experiments, Classism, and Memento Mori
Pete highlights the disturbing new information coming out about Dr. Anthony Fauci. How he lied to Congress about ‘Gain-of-Function’ research and his involvement in horrific lab experiments, including the torture and killing of puppies. He goes on to address abortion in the police force where pregnant police officers are pressured to choose their career over motherhood. We see the undeniable fact that dad’s matter, how '“mis-gendering” someone could be a crime, the new kind of segregation, and vaccines for kids. Pete ends with a note on “Memento Mori” - Remember your death. As Catholics we have died with Christ, through baptism, and so we now live the divine life through His resurrection. We are called to live lives of faith rather than of fear!
Economics, Football Players, and Papal Ambassadors
In this week’s show Peter Range takes a deep dive into the fact that President Biden’s infrastructure bill will benefit China while his inflation policies are killing us at home. Peter also looks at vaccine mandates, a new transgender 4 star general and a terrible pick to be the new Ambassador to the Vatican. Finally, Peter invites his listeners to not give up on what God has called them, and all of us to do. There are some famous football players who went from bagging groceries to becoming MVP Super Bowl winners. God has a plan we’re reminded, so just be the best you can be today, and leave the rest to God!
Woke Culture and the Fight for Liberty
In this episode Pete begins with a story on Pope Francis meeting with the Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi and why it matters. The Holy Father should take the opportunity to challenge leaders who stand against the foundational issue of life, like Pelosi, who supports abortion through all 9 months of pregnancy. Pete goes on to highlight the NFL’s apparent hypocrisy when it comes to disciplining bad behavior after they remove coach Jon Gruden from the Ring of Honor for insensitive comments made in an email 10 years prior. Meanwhile, NFL players who have been charged with violence against women maintain their positions of honor. SouthWest Airlines cancels over 1,000 flights in one weekend due to a rumored employee protest of the vaccine mandates, Superman is now super gay, and a VA school board covers up the sexual assualt of a 9th grade girl by a “gender-fluid” boy in the girl’s bathroom. Pete ends with an inspirational speech by Founding Father, Patrick Henry. We must all be vigilent, active and brave! Let us fall to our knees in prayer and not hesitate to go to action for the libertyof ALL people in our great nation!
The Biden Dilemma and Finding Hope
Pete begins with a look at the latest ethical mess with Hunter Biden as he starts selling his own artwork for hundreds of thousands of dollars. Meanwile his father, Joe Biden, continues to attack pro-life laws, including the new Texas abortion restrictions going so far as to declare emergency action to block the state’s decision. No one is safe as the Democratic party attacks their own members for refusing to sign the $3.5 Trillion “Build Back Better” Bill. Finally, Pete ends on a positive note drawing attention to the life of Louie Zamperini, a POW from WW11 who found peace in the power of Christ’s redemptive love. All of this and more in today’s epside!
