Oct 8th AOTM Oktoberfest Double Header 10/8/2013

First at 6 PM two heavyweights go toe to toe:

Mark Shea vs. Michael Voris

One Night. One Fight. Who’s Got It Right?

In a world so militantly secularized that even the Catholic Church cannot escape the dictatorship of relativism, every man must ask himself:  What does Christ expect of me?  Do I speak out?  Do I publicly resist? Do I pray and fast?  What does it mean to be a soldier of Christ in a Christophobic day and age?

Come to the AOTM and watch two heavyweights go toe-to-toe on the issue that matters most: How do we defend the Catholic Church in Crisis?

After the dust settles, who will be left standing: The Investigative Catholic reporter, or the Catholic Apologist?

The AOTM is proud to present THE debate of the year.

Next at 7:30 PM

Mark Shea, Michael Voris go at it again but this time they are not alone: AOTM veterans Michael Matt and David Deavel join them in a spontaneous round table debate on "How do Laymen address the Crisis in the Church?” 

During this segment the opponents will go deeper into the issue brought up during the debate.   These men do not agree on this topic and are known for telling it like it is, having passion for what they believe—and this at a time when so many are lukewarm because of a lack of clarity.  Not so with these guys!

We will be taking questions from the audience during this time. 

Oktoberfest at AOTM- Special Event- Starts at 3pm

Roll up your sleeves, men, and come hungry—not only for the debate of the year, but also for Oktoberfest beer, brats, cigars, and more in the tent outside and maybe even a dunk tank for whoever loses the debate.  This may not be fun for wimpy, girly men, but the rest of you will want to come early and stay late!   Festivities will begin early outside under the tent so plan accordingly.  By that I mean take off work early and get your but down there!
