Carmelite nuns are one of the last traditional conservative orders of nuns left today. One of their convents was recently 'reviewed' by visitors from Rome who later proclaimed the convent had a year to decide whether to join an order of activist nuns or face closure. Joining us today is Philadelphia-based author and columnist Thom Nickels (thomnickels.blogspot.com). This Carmelite convent issue points to a larger problem within the Catholic Church: that there is a civil war brewing between the conservative, traditionalist arm and the more progressive, get-with-the-times wing. Time will tell how it plays out, but right now the Pope is firmly on one side of the issue.
Once a month, John joins Lee Lancaster (www.todayschristiancountry.com) in the KYMS radio studio for a half hour interview covering a wide range of topics. This week, they focus on the history of the church and how oftentimes church leaders have not stood up during times of crises, including today.
John and Lee discuss the brewing controversy over mask mandates, the different civil wars occurring in the U.S., going on the offensive to get back our freedoms, and some alternatives to the constantly censoring tech tyrants. John also gives a persecuted church update.
