Since when did buying a chicken sandwich become a cultural issue? When supporters of same-sex marriage decided it was time to boycott Chick Fil-A stores because the president of the company said he supports traditional marriage between one man and one woman. Brendan and Gavin talk about the controversy, and similar controversy erupting in New Zealand. Meanwhile, back in the US, Mitt Romney had a gaffe-filled international tour, questions about President Obama’s religion and a pro-life activist getting a visit from the FBI.

    Looking forward to listening to the podcast shortly, guys. 

    Just wanted to thank you for doing this. I also want to send a special thanks to Gavin for all of his podcasts on the 15th Station. This is great stuff!

    Hello, just wondering who this Bob McCroskey guy is who talk about a lot? I am in Australia and get the sense he’s in NZ radio or something similar?

    • Hi Simon,

      Sorry for the very late response. Bob McCoskrie used to be a radio host on the Christian broadcaster Radio Rhema but left many years ago and started up a lobby group called Family First.

The 15th Station is our active monthly news podcast.  We get a panel of Kiwi Catholics together to provide a Catholic perspective on the news and current events of the month.
Catechiwi is our archived catechesis podcast where we get a guest theologian from around the country or the world to speak on an aspect of the Catholic Faith.
Ignition leverages our partnerships with organisations like Hearts Aflame to provide a back catalogue of amazing lectures and talks from international speakers.  We divide these talks up into multi-part podcasts.
15 Minutes With The Bishop is a series of interviews with Bishop Patrick Dunn, DD, the Catholic Bishop of Auckland, New Zealand.
