Sept. 15, 2014 show

Bob talks with DePaul University political science professor Scott Hibbard about ISIS and religious persecution in Iraq and Syria. Then, Kellie Fiedorek, a lawyer for Alliance Defending Freedom, joins Bob to discuss the probability of the U.S. Supreme Court taking up same-sex marriage this coming term. Thirty-two states have asked the Court to rule on the issue. Finally, CCI's own Marilou Gervacio talks about President Barack Obama’s decision to defer any executive action on immigration until after the Nov. 4 election. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Committee on Migration earlier this week sent a letter to the administration and the head of the Department of Homeland Security, asking them to use executive action to defer deportations of certain undocumented immigrants.
