Nightline

The video from last night's interview with Christopher West is up on the Nightline website.

I would give the piece an "A-". It got the message out there and gave Christopher a decent amount of time to give a very basic argument. But, some of the message got lost in translation. Nightline, of course, used some of the "juicier" suggestions.

Overall, I was very happy with it and recommend it to others.

What you said is exactly why I would not give the segment anything better than a C. They spent more time talking about Hugh Hefner than Pope John Paul II.

I was appalled that the man supported Oral Sex using the beloved Song of Songs! I can't imagine the Church approving of this demeaning and highly addictive practice.

I read the following critical review and I recommend it to anyone who watched the segment.
