BP This Week: Pray for the Persecuted

Plus: Russia and Fake News • Can Catholic Universities Be Catholic?

Persecution against Christians worldwide is at an all-time high. What is God calling the church in America and Europe to do to help? As we mark the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church, our hosts take stock of this worsening crisis, and urge prayer and targeted action on behalf of our embattled brothers and sisters around the globe. John and Ed also discuss the newly-modified HHS contraception mandate, and attempt by LGBT groups at Georgetown to shut down a pro-marriage group, and newly-released evidence of Russia’s bizarre efforts to influence the 2016 election. The American public, it turns out, is frighteningly susceptible to this propaganda and fake news.
