  • Zachary (email) – Is it a mortal sin, or even reason for automatic excommunication, if a Catholic votes in favor of legalizing abortion on a ballot that concerns no other topic except a simple yes/no on this issue? (00:50)
  • Aurora – I think the parenting style is such that they are letting their kids do whatever they want. So it is difficult for teachers to teach with authority.
  • Susan – What do you think about what is happening with the demonstrations against the Jewish students? (14:28)
  • Wayne – I learned some organizations are using AI to answer theological questions. What do you think about replacing our hosts with AI?
  • Madison – I am a Mormon and I am looking into the Catholic faith. Did Jesus have brothers? (31:25)
  • Heidi – Can I go to communion since I am living with a man who I am not married to? (41:13)
