Friends! Same time and same station: WCAT’S “The Open Door,” Friday, Feb. 15 at 8 am (PT) and 11 am (ET).
This week our special guests are Fr. David Poecking (St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish) and Muntadher Aljabery, Imam of Alfatimiah of Pittsburgh.
We will explore the document Human Fraternity issued by His Holiness Pope Francis and The Grand Imam of Al-Azhar Ahmad Al-Tayyeb. (The quotations below are from this document.)
The questions we will consider include the following.
- How might we act on the conviction that “whoever kills a person is like one who kills the whole of humanity, and that whoever saves a person is like one who saves the whole of humanity”?
- Are there now signs of a “third world war being fought piecemeal”? If so, what are they?
- “To attack the institution of the family, to regard it with contempt or to doubt its important role, is one of the most threatening evils of our era.” What forces that threaten this evil?
- How can we contribute to efforts “to free women from historical and social conditioning that runs contrary to the principles of their faith and dignity”?
- How can we elucidate the claim that God wills “the pluralism and diversity” of religions?

Several years ago, he became frustrated with the seeming lack of caring from Republicans and the sense of amorality from the Democrats. Finding himself politically “homeless,” he researched his options and came to the American Solidarity Party. He now dedicates his time to growing the movement of pro-life for the whole life politicians who reject entrenched politics on the left and right.
