The God Slot Friday 31 January 2014
Religion in schools; Jesus Agenda; Holocaust Memorial.
The Association of Catholic Priests issued a statement critical of Minister for Education Ruairi Quinn’s remarks about teaching religion in school time. One of the leaders of the ACP, Fr. Gerard O’Connor, joins us to discuss this. We did invite the Minister or a spokesperson to participate, but his Press Office was unable to help us.
Former Director of the General Evangelical Alliance, Pastor Joel Edwards, explains The Jesus Agenda.
The live broadcast of the Holocaust Memorial Day commemoration on RTE 1 Extra was disrupted last Sunday by technical problems. A recording of the event was broadcast the following night, and is available online, and The God Slot gives a taste of the ceremony with poet Micheál O’Siadhail and the Chief Justice, The Honourable Mrs. Justice Susan Denham, and music by Conor Sheil and Maria Geheran.
