Hallmark Calls Christmas A ‘Secular’ Holiday

Dom Giordano spent a good chunk of today’s show discussing a story last week, in which The Hollywood Reporter blasted the Hallmark Channel for their lack of diversity in their holiday movies. Lesley Goldberg writes, “while other networks are viewing the holidays with an eye toward inclusion, Hallmark is delivering the dream of a white Christmas, just like the one's audiences used to know.” In the article were calls for all different types of diversity, including the demand for more non-Christian movies. "I think Christmas has become almost a secular type of holiday more than Hanukkah, which really does have more of a religious feel," Bill Abbott, who serves as CEO of Hallmark parent Crown Media Family Networks, told The Hollywood Reporter. Dom vehemently disagrees that Christmas is becoming a secular holiday, and explains why. Also, Dom discusses whether or not it’s acceptable to use a fake Christmas tree, and a change of policy by Egg Harbor Township schools to accomodate their one transgendered student.

Ray Didinger on the Eagles | Week 13

Philadelphia broadcasting and sports-writing legend Ray Didinger joins the Dom Giordano Program for his weekly check-in after the Eagles lost to the paltry Miami Dolphins Sunday afternoon. Ray and Dom discuss the reasons for the Eagles’ shortcomings, preview next week’s matchup against the New York Giants, and give what they believe to be the best sports biopic of all time.

Madeleine Kearns on ‘Trans’ Children

Madeleine Kearns, writer for National Review, joins the Dom Giordano Program to discuss and break down the new onslaught of transgendered children. Kearns wrote last week in the magazine about the ethics and reasoning behind the new wave of ‘trans’ children, telling the story of James Younger, a 7 year old whose parents have entered into a legal battle over the mother’s decision to raise Younger as a girl. Also, Kearns lays out what she believes to be the reason for the new trend.
