Scandal Rocks the Catholic Church and the Guilty Plea of Michael Cohen


Townhall Review — September 1, 2018

Hugh Hewitt speaks with author Rod Dreher about the latest bombshell in the Catholic church; this time from a report written by a high-ranking Church official implicating the Vatican. Mike Gallagher tells the shocking details of a Cardinal downplaying the importance of this disturbing news. Michael Medved remembers former Vietnam war hero and P.O.W, Senator John McCain. Mike Gallagher exposes the media’s faulty news coverage of the Michael Cohen case, especially now that Lanny Davis, a former advisor to the Clintons during the 90s, admits that he misled the media. Dennis Prager looks at the Left’s desire to replace “toxic masculinity” with “Mr. Sensitive,” leaving nobody to fight evil. Hugh Hewitt turns to Chad Pecknold, a theologian and professor at Catholic University in Washington D.C., to discuss the deep corruption inside the Catholic church, and how Pope Francis, who is implicated, has not yet given a public response. Dennis Prager and Andrew McCarthy, Senior Editor at National Review, simplify the complex aspects of the Michael Cohen trial. Larry Elder and Los Angeles attorney Reeve Chudd give tribute to Aretha Franklin and her contribution to music, but also how important it is to have a last will and testament.

Albert Mohler: The Message And Majesty Of Handel’s “Messiah”

Billy Graham

Everyone knows about George Frideric Handel, but few remember Charles Jennens, but it was Jennens who wrote and conceived the idea of the “Messiah,” the massive oratorio that is performed thousands of times worldwide at Christmas. Jennens wrote the libretto—the text—of the “Messiah,” tying together the Bible’s central story: God’s salvation of His people through the work of the Messiah.

He used the very words of the Bible for his text. Jennens had a purpose in his project, and that was to remind his audience of the truth and power of the story of salvation. And thus his attention to the birth of Christ. In just 21 days, Handel put the words to majestic music. “For Unto Us a Child is Born.”

That is the prophet’s declaration of God’s great gift to us at Christmas. It is the reason for the unspeakable joy Christians know at Christmas.

Merry Christmas from the Salem Radio family.
