If you live in SE Michigan I highly recommend you join Al Kresta and Teresa Tomeo with their conference exposing the craziness of our culture and the clarity and sanity within the Catholic Church and her teaching.
Both of these speakers are on the cutting edge of these issues and are ready to teach the truth Saturday, October 17 at the Ford Motor Company Conference Center.

STEVE RAY HERE: After meeting with the Bishop of Jerusalem and talking to many people here in the Middle East I conclude that this bishop is absolutely correct. The United States is on the wrong side of this conflict and Russia is on the right side. President Asad has always protected the Christians and toppling [...]
Winston Churchill wrote “Some people like the Jews, and some do not. But no thoughtful man can deny the fact that they are, beyond any question, the most formidable and the most remarkable race which has appeared in the world.“ He is absolutely right!
