SCOTUS and Summer Movies (6/9/2018)

By a surprising vote of 7-2, the Supreme Court this week ruled in favor of a Colorado baker who had refused to create a wedding cake for a homosexual couple. It was an important win for defenders of religious liberty, and Michelle LaRosa of the Catholic News Agency talks about the implications. And then, we talk to Register film critic Deacon Steven Greydanus about the good, the bad, and the must-sees at the movies this summer.

Coronavirus, Catholic Schools (Aug. 1)

Also, we’ve had a lot of news this week on Catholic schools, including an important op-ed by several important Church leaders reminding us that Catholic schools are worth saving. We talk with Register contributor Andrea Picciotti-Bayer.
