 Sheen, Fulton J.
Sheen's show originally aired on the Dumont Network on Tuesday evenings in 1951 and then moved to ABC where it remained until Sheen withdrew in 1957.
Sheen would choose a topic and, with only a flboard for a prop and his church robes for costuming, would discuss the topic for his allotted 27 minutes.
In his autobiography he noted that the show was not "a direct presentation of Christian doctrine but rather a reasoned approach to it beginning with something that was common to the audience." He covered topics as diverse as art, science, aviation, humor, communism, and philosophy.

 Sheen
With Sheen, as with much of her previous work, Piccinini charts a vector through this world, distilling from it a series of moments that describe a visual, aural, tactile and olfactory geometry of surface and speed.
The core concerns of Sheen are derived from the point where the functional realities of the Adelaide Festival Centre Foyer intersect with the issues at the heart of Piccinini's practice.
In the end, Sheen is about an increasingly dominant mode of interacting with the world; a mode whereby the world is skimmed over, shaved and streamlined, by a ever accelerating individual whose passage is subject to fewer and fewer interruptions.

 Andrew Stuttaford on Martin Sheen on National Review Online
That Sheen's numerous crusades may have religious roots should not exempt them from criticism, nor should the fact that the actor is, by all accounts, "sincere." When it comes to an agenda like Sheen's, sincerity in and of itself is no defense.
One of the hallmarks of Sheen's activism is the number of times he has been arrested, around 70 at the latest count, often carefully choreographed for photogenic spectacle, which might include, say, prayer (yet another Nagasaki protest, this one at Los Alamos in 1999) or, for real excitement, fake blood (Fort Benning, same year).
Sheen is a zealot: a man so convinced of his own rectitude that, for him, any compromise becomes a sin.

Sheen delves deeply into what he considers the main character of the priesthood, and one not often discussed, that of being, like Christ, a "holy victim".
Fulton Sheen claims that since all seven deadly sins led Christ's enemies to nail Him to the Cross, we can find in the example of His suffering and death sure means to overcome each of those sins, plus the key to understanding-and to nurturing in our soul-each corresponding value.
