Hey Steve….how did FoxNews get your name and invite you on ? Was it because you were local to the Washington DC area ?
I think you did a great job, but was wondering how they chose because you and the website aren’t as well-known as some other commentators over the years.
EDIT: Oops….this is apparently a longer radio-version, but I was referring to your short video/TV appearance which I saw weeks ago on the site but can’t seem to find right now.
I’ve had op-eds in both the Washington Post and USA Today in the past 8 months or so. They found me there, and kept me on file for when they needed someone to talk about this topic.
Awesome….I’m trying to get on FoxNews or Newsmax myself on more political stuff (but relevant to Catholics) so I’ll keep you posted there, too.
How did you get the Op-Ed assignments ? Did you just write-in and hope or did someone contact you ?
They sought me out. I’ve done PR on one of our initiatives, once, which led to another opportunity with that outlet, but I’ve never sought interviews or Op-Eds.
The amount of MISINFORMATION I see on complex issues — whether theological or financial or racial or whatever – is astounding. The liberal media gets it wrong constantly.
The one area where they realized they looked like fools and hired professionals is on medical-related stuff. That’s why the stations now all have medical experts because they know their manequins can’t get up to speed on complex medical stuff for a 4-minute segment.
Steve, I saw the Fox News clip. For a Catholic priest to articulate that repentance is unnecessary, he might as well have said that nobody goes to hell. Well done. I wish you could have had the last word. But the word you did have was sufficient, and it was the Truth.
PS – My daughter just finished her first year at Franciscan. She LOVES it there.
Good morning, Steve,
I just listened to your podcast for the first time. What a wonderful job of evangelization you have accomplished here, fine sir. Agreeably, your short stint on the so called, “Fox and Friends”, was indeed well worth it, certainly for what that appearance inspired in you to accomplish here in this podcast. Your closure on what “mercy” IS, is precisely on the mark. Mercy is the Caritas of God in His Singular and Infinite capacity to allow for our return to Him, times innumerable, in the Divine Person of Jesus Christ, for His absolution. Mercy is indeed a gift that is both freely given and completely undeserved by any and all, yet it fully requires, as you metaphorically demonstrated clearly, a free will assent by the individual human person into that gift that Almighty God gives, for were it not, then we indeed would not be persons with a free will agency, protected at once with God’s own Sovereignty. A gift must be freely received and received in the understanding that God Himself commands of us, for were it not, mercy would be an instrument of coercion by God, which stands res ipsa loquitur, as an affront to the Caritas that God indeed IS, as God Himself. In caritas.
Thanks, Mark. Beyond what you’ve already said, don’t Mercy Burritos make you hungry? 😉
Of course they do!
