  • At a hearing in NH, State Rep Glenn Cordelli attempted to read from inappropriate books in school libraries. He gets shut down because it’s too graphic. The Democrats freak out and then all vote to not let him continue speaking. Too graphic for a room of adults representing citizens but totally cool for middle schoolers!

  • Jim – I have noticed a lot of catholic prejudice. The KKK hated Catholics and other groups hated Catholics too.
  • Karina (15-years-old) – What is the Churches stance on us being able to sin in our thoughts? (16:05)
  • Matt – I am a public school teacher and I recently removed a book that was offensive. There are people fighting the good fight.
  • Homer – There is a famous black protestant minister who goes around to school boards and reads bad things from books to kids.
  • Sig – How did the tradition of saying the ‘Hail Mary’ ‘Our Father’ and ‘Glory Be’ together come to be? Also, since it has been a while since the protestant protest, why don’t Catholics start calling them heretics? (24:57)
  • Emmanuel – How do I explain to someone why we pray for people in purgatory in regards to the Good Thief? Did he go to purgatory?
  • Alice – The books in the class room are also coming through online digital learning.
