[quote=Jerry Usher]Hi Tad,
I can’t envision us having Hank on the program. Not because of any particular reason, I don’t suppose, other than the fact that, up until now, many of our networks and affiliates have been a little squeemish (sp?) about the prospect of us having non- or anti-Catholics on the program.
Actually, we’ve had quite a few non-Catholics, and it’s hard to tell if Hank is simply “non-” or if he’s “anti-.” In either case, we’ve discussed having “debates” and similar things on CAL, but just haven’t found the right opportunity. Of course, we’d be completely open to such an arrangement. And it would be fun to give OUR listeners a chance to call and interact with Hank, James White, et al, much like what Jimmy Akin had to go through when appearing on the Bible Answer Man a few years ago :eek:
By the way, as I was reading your post, and got to the part where you said that your anti-Catholic wife would leave you if you “poped,” I was going to respond by asking where she ended up, but then I saw that you didn’t quite make it all the way (at least, not yet)
Glad you like the show - let us know if we can EVER do anything to assist you…and the line about your wife was, need I say, a joke May the two of you fall more deeply in love with each other (and with Christ and His Church) everyday of your lives!!!
This is the first time i have replied to a reply to one of my posts on this forum, so we’ll see how it goes. I’m attempting to reply to Sir Jerry Usher, so if this ends up somewhere else, my apologies!
Jerry, thanks for the note. My journey has been a bumpy one, but probably not much different from others heading to “Rome Sweet Home.” As a video producer, I’ve had some incredible opportunities that most Catholics would kill for, er, uh, well maybe they would just really like it a lot! I’ve been to Mexico City and seen (and shot/videotaped) the tilma. Last year I went to Rome with Leonardo DeFillipis with his Therese team and got my picture with the pope! INCREDIBLE! It still sends chills down my spine…but, alas, the pictures are sitting in a large envelope in my file cabinet as i live in a very protest-ant world. My wife barely said anything (other than fighting back the tears!) when I showed them to her. My mother-in-law was like, “oh, ya, the pope, uh huh. that’s nice.”
More to write, but not to bore you anymore. I know you’re busy, but i just wanted to say thanks for writing and know that i listen to you and Karl, James, er, uh “Jimmy” and Ros almost daily. Great show, so informative, and your love for Christ shines through. Keep my wife and i in your prayers at CAL as we will need in the coming months and years! Take care, my brother.
p.s. i got your joke about “poping”. that IS a good one…i’ll have to use it more often! : )
