Funny Calls from Catholic Answers Live Callers

by Steve Ray on May 11, 2012

From Tim Staples of Catholic Answers Live:

About 13 years ago, when Catholic Answers first started in radio, our first host was Johnny Hochgraefe. He decided to start a listener comment line for folks who could not get on the air or who just wanted to make a comment. This is a best of that Johnny put together way back when. These are real callers, folks! Saturday Night Live could not do this if they tried! Get ready to laugh your head off!

For quite some time, Biblical historians have been working diligently to better understand the city of Judah during the time of King David.

Interestingly, Professor Yosef Garfinkel of Hebrew University of Jerusalem and other archeologists have been digging in the ancient city of Khirbet Qeiyafa (Elah Valley, Israel, where David killed Goliath), where they recently unearthed some fascinating findings. The researchers there uncovered three cultic shrines that date back to the time of King David, The Atlantic report.
