Don’t bring your politically correct narratives to a logic fight – you’re not going to win. In this week’s boralogue, John shows that the differences between what some believe and what is actually reality have widened into chasms. He exposes the logical fallacies behind several PC narratives reheated this week following the tragic shooting at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon. On the other side of the divide, reality insists on being heard and will eventually win out. If we listen to these illogical narratives, we may find ourselves falling into the chasm.
The Obama administration is bringing in hundreds of thousands of mostly Muslim refugees, but is deporting groups of Christians back to Iraq. Joining us to expand on this is author and Middle East expert Raymond Ibrahim (www.raymondibrahim.com), who reveals the harsh political and religious climate for Christians in the Middle East, mainstream media’s lack of coverage on the issue, and the now true story of ISIS operatives setting up shop in Western countries.
The chasm is widening on many issues, including border security and immigration. For example, if Muslims migrate to the United States and refuse to assimilate into our culture, are we considered racists if we say it won’t work or are we just facing reality? Phyllis Chesler (www.phyllis-chesler.com), Emerita Professor of Psychology at City University of New York, examines these philosophical chasms by looking at Islamic ideology, anti-Semitism past and present, and how freedom of religion is in danger in America in the wake of Islamist immigration.
What happens when new politically correct laws begin trumping the established constitutional rights of freedom of religion and speech? Stephen Krason (www.franciscan.edu), Chair of the Political Science Department at Franciscan University of Steubenville in Ohio, discusses the inconsistencies in not only forming these new laws but also in enforcing them to different groups of people. We can fight back by saying, “I will not sit down. I will not shut up!”
As always, join us online for our weekly Section 6 intelligence briefing, featuring analysis by John on important stories highlighting emerging geopolitical trends around the world. This week, John dives into prophecy and sees if current events in the Middle East match up.
