    Cardinal Ambrozic's spokeswoman from The Toronto Archdiocese (www.archtoronto.org) & a professor from the Institute of Christian Studies in Toronto (www.icscanada.edu) take your calls and questions about the differences between Catholicism and Protestant Evangelicalism!

    "Are Catholics really Christians? Will they really go to Heaven? Don't they believe in some really wacky things like praying to the Virgin Mary and believing that they're actually eating the flesh and drinking the blood of Christ during communion?" These are only a few of the questions many Evangelicals still ask about Roman Catholics today. And these are the types of questions we tackle today. Is there really such a great divide or is there more common ground then we might think?"

  • Ron Sider
    Professor Sider has lectured at many colleges and universities around the world, including Yale, Harvard, Princeton, and Oxford. Ron feels that, "Evangelical Christians, are very much like their non-Christian neighbours in rates of divorce, premarital sex, domestic violence and use of pornography, and are actually more likely to hold racist views than other people." He's the author of, "The Scandal of The Evangelical Conscience - Why are Christians living just like the rest of the world?"

  • CHRISTIAN MORALS!
    Can an unmarried Christian couple live together if they abstain from sex?
    And, if following Christ is supposed to change one's life than;
    * Why do Christians divorce at the same rate as not-yet Christians?
    * Why are Christians just as racist and beat their wives just as much?
    * Why are Christians buying into the same self-centred materialism as the rest of North America and only 6% of us tithe regularly?
    * Why is the rate of sexual promiscuity so astoundingly high in the world of Jesus people?

Is the Catholic Church doing the right thing?

At their booth, which is set up at various Porn Expo's, stands a 25-foot inflatable penis named Wally. Nonetheless, "XXX Church" is helping thousands around the world fight their struggles with pornography by offering a FREE "accountability software" on their site, as well as building relationships with those who actually make the porn... sharing the love of Christ... even for them... especially for them!

    "THE GOD WHO WASN'T THERE" - A new movie directed by Brian Flemming holds modern Christianity up to a merciless spotlight as it asks the questions few dare to ask. And when it finds out how crazy the answers are, it dares to call them crazy. Your guide through the bizarre world of Christendom is former fundamentalist Brian Flemming. This movie claims that Jesus Christ is likely a fictional character, a legend never based on a real human; that Christian doctrine contradicts itself at every turn, and encourages immorality when it serves the religion; and that the beliefs of moderate Christians make even less sense than those of extremists... God simply isn't there. We speak with the Director and then get your reaction!

  • Daniel Decker
    Daniel Decker just returned from Armenia, where he performed his song “Adana” to a standing ovation at a nationally televised Memorial Concert commemorating the 90th Anniversary of the Armenian Genocide. 1.5 million Christian Armenians were slaughtered in the genocide by Muslim Turkish soldiers of the Ottoman Empire because they would not renounce their faith in Christ. Decker's song “Adana” is about the genocide from a decidedly Christian point of view, and has been translated into 17 languages so far. It was received with great emotion and a standing ovation by all in attendance. Through this song Daniel is having the opportunity to proclaim the Gospel in a way he'd never have, even if he were a missionary. As a result, he's bringing God's healing and restoration to the people over this event, which several countries including modern-day Turkey and the U.S., still don't officially recognize. Listen to the man who made a difference. Listen to the passion. Listen to the story!

Talkback, etc.

  • Would you allow your teenager to get drunk at home so they would know what it felt like, within the safety and supervision of your own home?

What would you do?

  • OK... Karla Homolka moves in next door. How do you react?

Described by some as the "Evangelical's Mother Theresa," this woman has probably gotten her hands dirty helping more people than most. Imagine, choosing to sleep in a hostel, on a floor of mentally ill women, crying out, night after night, just so you could understand how to love them more effectively!

Talkback, etc.

  • Bibles banned from Hospital! Should hospitals even have Bibles in each room?
    A hospital in Fredericton N.B. has decided to ban bedside Bibles because they are a health hazard. Some politically correct genius made the decision to go through the Hospital, on a Sunday no less, and collect all the Bibles. Is this germ warfare or spiritual warfare? Ahhh... the continuing trend of the secularization of Canadian institutions. The mayor of Fredericton, Brad Woodside, joins the show, to express his frustrations and accused the hospital of acting on 'political correctness' that seems to reject any expression of Christianity in public.

  • Jimmy Swaggart Threatens To Kill Gays - Should Swaggart be fined and taken off the air?
    A Canadian television station has apologized to viewers for American evangelist Jimmy Swaggart's television program in which he threatened to kill gays. Jimmy is now being investigated by the Canadian Radio Television Commission, the government agency, which regulates television. During his program, Swaggart started talking about gay marriage and said,

    "I'm trying to find the correct name for it ... this utter absolute, asinine, idiotic stupidity of men marrying men. I've never seen a man in my life I wanted to marry. And I'm gonna be blunt and plain; if one ever looks at me like that, I'm gonna kill him and tell God he died." Then his congregation applauded loudly!
    Should he step down as a spiritual leader... again?

  • Tommy Emmanuel
    Jazz legend Chet Atkins was one of the first people who inspired Emmanuel to pick up a guitar.

In his storied career, the Grammy-nominated Emmanuel has set sales records that have yet to be broken and performed alongside hundreds of other musical legends including Chet Atkins, Eric Clapton, Sir George Martin, Hank Marvin and Joe Walsh. He even recorded sessions with Tiny Tim and Stevie Wonder. In Australia, Emmanuel's music and life are legendary. He began playing guitar at age 4, learning to play by ear without any formal instruction. Emmanuel and his brother Phil were child prodigies, starting their professional career in the 1960s when Phil was just 7-years-old and Tommy a mere 4.

    The story of a man who grew up in a dysfunctional family with an abusive father. As an escape, he turned to booze, drugs and porn.

Finally, it all came crashing down when at 26 he encountered a nervous breakdown. Then, after years of broken relationships, he surrendered his life to Jesus Christ and entered into a restored relationship and acceptance with the Creator, only to find that the church wasn't quite as ready to accept him. Listen as we hear the story of a man who is still trying to make wise choices, but continues to battle between his "old life patterns" and this so called, "new life in Christ."

    Do you think most Catholics actually worship the Pope? Estimates show around 4 million mourners have filed into the basilica to pay their last respects to the Pope.

  • Is there really any hope of the Christian community actually being united?
    Ecumenicalism... isn't it just a fantasy, a waste of time? Aren't denominational doctrines just too different to ever reach "Kumbaya" status? Why can't we just admit our differences and move on?

  • Did World Vision Australia do the right thing in knocking back gambling money donation?
    In Australia, the NSW Clubs Association decided to generously donate $500,000 to World Vision for the Tsunami Relief effort. World Vision turned it down because the clubs get most of their money from gambling machines (Pokies) and alcohol sales. They then changed their policy and decided they wanted the half million-dollar donation after all. World Vision Australia CEO, Tim Costello, a prominent anti-poker machine campaigner, said the humanitarian crisis was too great to maintain a moral stance about where the money came from. Did World Vision Australia do the right thing in knocking back this donation? Did they make it any worse by going back on their original policy?
