From Gillette to Pepsi, many companies are starting to market their products by advocating for social justice issues, signaling to consumers that they are “woke.” Is woke capitalism a trend that’s truly new in the market? Should businesses comment on social issues? Acton’s president and co-founder, Rev. Robert Sirico, explains. Afterwards, Daniel J. Mahoney, professor of political science at Assumption College speaks about his newest book, “The Idol of our Age: How the Religion of Humanity Subverts Christianity.”

    Wow. I am on ship with Father Sirico and have my copy of Idols with me. I highly recommend that book by Daniel Mahoney. Father Sirico recommended I read https://www.amazon.com/Dark-Passages-Bible-Engaging-Scripture/dp/0813221560/ref=sr_1_1?hvadid=78065377293824&hvbmt=be&hvdev=t&hvqmt=e&keywords=dark+passages+of+the+bible&qid=1567354341&s=gateway&sr=8-1 . I think I have the title right. Will look it up and order it when I am home. Post updated with link to correct title.

    Mahoney’s book had been sitting on my shelf for too long. Takes a bit to fully digest but it’s fantastic.

    I took notes in a spiral notebook then digested the notes.
