Here’s the latest from the crossroads of faith, media & culture: 02/11/22

In the supposedly godless media, faith abounds. TV talk show legend Kathie Lee Gifford and A-list movie star Mark Wahlberg were certainly refreshingly unabashed about their relationship with God in a pair of interviews that aired this week.

Four-time Emmy Award winner Kathie Lee Gifford talked with Katie McGrady on her satellite radio show that airs weekdays (2:00-4:00 PM ET) on SiriusXM’s Catholic Channel 129 about her book The Jesus I Know that includes conversations with celebrities such as Kristin Chenoweth, Megyn Kelly, Kevin Costner and Kris Jenner who opened up to her about their views and experiences regarding spirituality and faith. Gifford explained that she hopes her book sheds light on the need for diverse, non-judgemental eschanges in a world that is often too quick to judge. It’s an enlightening discussion which you can listen to below.

Over at Fox  News’ Ingraham Angle, contributor Raymond Arroyo turned in a fascinating interview Mark Wahlberg in which the actor  discussed his faith, cancel culture, and his new film Father Stu which, as I reported here earlier, tells the inspirational true story of boxer-turned-priest Father Stuart Long. It’s also an enlightening conversation about faith, perseverance and redemption. You can watch it here.

BTW, Father Stu is due in theater on April 15th (Good Friday).
