On Friday’s Houston Matters: A new study says that, while Houstonians are mostly accepting of Muslim Americans, there’s still a lot of misunderstanding. We learn more from researcher Dr. Robert McKenzie.

Also this hour: Next month, more than a hundred Catholic bishops are expected to meet in Rome for a gathering dedicated to the sexual abuse crisis. Rice University’s Dr. Anastasiya Zavyalova has been studying one particular archdioceses for more than a decade. She explains why releasing the names of priests involved in abuse cases can help the church gain back some credibility.
