(LifeSiteNews) — In lieu of a regular episode of The John-Henry Westen Show, today I am reposting a talk I gave seven years ago at the Rome Life Forum.

In May 2015, I shared with a group of pro-life and pro-family activists the warning signs that Pope Francis’ remarks and actions may have a destructive impact on the clear communication of the Church’s teaching on homosexuality, contraception, life, and a variety of other cultural and social issues.

Well, perhaps unfortunately, that talk remains as relevant as ever here in 2022. Watch the video recording above or by clicking here. Or you can listen to the audio version below.

The John-Henry Westen Show is available by video on the show’s YouTube channel and right here on my LifeSite blog.

You can send me feedback, or ideas for show topics by emailing [email protected].
