‘Left, Right & Center’: Left, Aequum et Centrum

Posted on Mar 15, 2013

Truthdig Editor-in-Chief Robert Scheer and the other “Left, Right & Center” panelists ask whether the new center of gravity, geographically speaking, of the papacy will bring a shift in the church’s positions. The troubled institution has many potential reforms ahead. Will they include gay rights, women’s rights, social justice or the church’s bureaucracy?

Also, another Rep. Paul Ryan budget arrives. Is he trying to be the next Ronald Reagan? And cyberthreats against the United States are on the rise. Richard Fisher, president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, proposes breaking up U.S. banks.

Joining Scheer and host Matt Miller this week with the conservative view is Ross Douthat, a New York Times columnist and author of “Bad Religion: How We Became a Nation of Heretics.”
