THE FIRST AMENDMENT IS
AN INCREASING CONCERN
The premiere episode on this new timetable will be aired by Good Shepherd Catholic Radio at 9:00 p.m. Saturday, July 3. It will be rebroadcast at 9:00 p.m. Sunday, July 4. Those will be my broadcast slots each week.
While the GSCR coverage area is limited to south-central Michigan (FM 93.3 or AM 1510), “Free Expression” can be accessed online anytime from anywhere in the world at:
…where you’ll also find an archive of all past episodes.
The weekend of Independence Day is certainly an appropriate kick-off time, since the show’s focus is increasingly on defending our First Amendment right of religious expression.
No surprise there. The party of “wokeness” (another way of saying “delusion in lockstep”) and its enablers in the world of high technology are pushing more earnestly to silence the voices of religious faith and independent thinking.
Catholic Radio is thus coming into its own as a crucial alternative information source. Even non-Catholics are listening these days. My show — which started as an author-interview feature — is simply going where the concern is most urgent.
Then Cathy Gilmore of the Catholic Marketing Network discusses this summer’s CMN “Momentum” event for Catholic apostolates, book venders, and producers of religion-based books and other devotional items. A key focus of that gathering will be building independent avenues of communication within the Catholic community.
Air times for this current episode (the last one on our monthly schedule) are different from those mentioned above, so to avoid confusion, I suggest listening online (even if you’re within the GSCR broadcast area) at:
Special thanks to members of the book club at the Devils Lake Yacht Club. This group of avid Lenawee County, Michigan, readers chose my novel about the family of Jesus. “My Brother’s Keeper,” as a spring book selection. And they hosted my wife, Kathy, and me for a discussion of my writing.
Great turnout. Wonderful refreshments. All in all, a fun evening at a gorgeous home in a rural southern Michigan setting not to be matched.
Lots of very penetrating questions, too. These folks are deep thinkers, and they gave careful thought to the book.
There’s nothing a writer appreciates more.
I’d be happy to meet with other book clubs and reading groups Click HERE or on the image of my book cover (above) for more information about “My Brother’s Keeper.”
Thank heaven some people still read books — goes to show that our civilizational decline isn’t quite complete. It’s well on its way, however, as a sharp-eyed memer points out…
His point is supported by our evident lack of knowledge about bird anatomy…
Vocabulary skills are deficient as well…
…although this could be a clever ploy for boosting produce sales.
But alas, there are some skills which even instruction can’t improve…
