How Did We Get Here? The Sexual Revolution and Identity Politics
EP010: Mary Eberstadt
Mary Eberstadt provides great resources to help Catholics talk about hard issues such as the sexual revolution, increased secularization, the importance of the traditional family, and religious freedom. In this episode, Scot and Mary discuss her research and writing – diving into many topics, including the sexual revolution’s effects on men, women and children, what it is doing to churches and the impact it has had on our nation’s politics. Mary also gives insight on a book she wrote about Father Arne Panula with thoughts from his last days on how Catholics should live, work and best help to build up the Kingdom of God.
