Radio Show: Chastity’s Impact on Community

Hey Everyone,

Tomorrow Wednesday May 23, 2012 from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. PST I will be joining the Diocesan office of Social Ministry for their inaugural show on the new San Diego Immaculate Heart Radio station.

Our topic is one not often talked about within the context that will be presented during the show: chastity. “Pronounced Suffering due to the Demise of Chastity” is the title of the show.

As Director of The Office of Social Ministry, Kent Peters has witnessed first hand the impact of the abuse of sexuality while working throughout the community. For Kent, this realization has caused him to reflect on how sexual promiscuity has lead to a decline of “our culture and society”. As a result he and his coworkers at the diocese have asked a panel of experts to participate in a radio conversation to discuss the issue. Joining the show tomorrow will be:

Dr. Anne Hendershott – A Sociologist and adjunct professor at The King’s College in New York City. She is well known for articles published in The Wall Street Journal and National Review. She has also written a number of books including The Politics of Abortion, Moving for Work, and The Reluctant Caregivers.

Leah Darrow

Leah Darrow – Former professional model who debuted on America’s Next Top Model, and since then has had a reversion back to the church which lead her to joining Catholic Answers as a Chastity speaker.

Carrie Giebel – Director of Young Adult Ministry in the Diocese of San Diego.

Cy Kellett – Former editor of the San Diego diocesan newspaper and one of the newest members of the Immaculate Heart Radio Ministry.

Timmerie Millington – Director of Education & Outreach at LIfe Choices in Poway, Social Media Consultant/Manager at Culture of Life Family Services, Writer & Public Speaker, Student at John Paul the Great University.

This should be an interesting and unique topic for the kick off show. I hope you will listen in and encourage others to listen as well.

    AnonymousMarch 20, 2012Hi Ed, your fist comment is acltlauy wrong though. The 2002 amendment was not pro-life it stated from implantation rather than conception; since when has the pre-implanted embryo not been deserving of our protection as well? So Youth Defence were being consistently and uncompromisingly pro-life. Although they received an awful lot of flack, and many's an untrue, nasty comment, from others in the pro-life movement, they have never taken the bait and publicly criticised others, which, to their shame and the detriment of the real cause here the protection of the unborn so many others have, and continue to do so, even here on this blog today. Please let go of the egos and the pride people, there's bigger fish to fry here. The second anonymous is probably the most petty quote I've ever seen, so I suppose it doesn't even deserve a reply. But everybody else, keep up the good work lads, we're not going to win this by bickering and being petty. I have to say Ed that in my experience YD have always been more than welcoming to any and all kinds of people; it may be conincidental that a lot of their members are catholic (you would generally find that people who are in these kind of causes for the long haul tend to have some kind of religion), and nobody should deny those as individuals to practice their faith, but their street work, materials, events etc tend to be quite secular. All the best.

      RebeccaMarch 19, 2012Sure; "I do admire their ctnmiomemt, but feel, as do many others in the pro-life movement, that their tactics leave a lot to be desired." and "I'm Catholic and of course pro-life but distance myself from Youth Defence for a variety of reasons." Feel free to elaborate if you wish.
