Sept. 21, 2015 show

Pope Francis arrives this week in the United States, so Bob kicks off this month's radio show by talking to Michael O'Loughlin, national correspondent for Crux, the Boston Globe's website for "all things Catholic." O'Loughlin talks about his new book, "The Tweetable Pope: A Spiritual Revolution in 140 Characters." Then, Maria Goldstein joins the show to talk about how Office Depot refused to make copies of a flier that simply included facts about abortion, Planned Parenthood and a prayer for the organization’s conversion. Thomas Olp, the attorney with the Thomas More Society who wrote the company and received an apology for Maria, also talks about this case of religious discrimination. Finally, Richard Doerflinger of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops talks about the bishops' concerns regarding proposed rules allowing Medicare coverage of doctor-patient conversations about end-of-life care.
