Next WNY Progress Report - Was Jesus a Liberal?

On Tuesday April 26th, from 4:00 - 5:00 pm on WHLD 1270-AM, Cliff Parks will host the next edition of the WNY Progress Report with co-host Mark Poloncarz and special guest Rev. Sarah Smith of the Kenmore United Church of Christ. They will discuss whether Jesus was a Liberal, Conservative, or non-partisan? They will also discuss whether there is a growing religious left movement and how those on the religious left perceive those on the right.

Cliff and Mark will then review the president's Social Security privatization proposal and the debate in general. They will be taking calls on all issues, and look forward to another great show.

The WNY Progress Report, a presentation of the WNY Coalition for Progress' Media & Communications Working Group, can be heard on WHLD 1270-AM from 4:00 pm - 5:00 PM.
