With all the partisan bickering that seems to clog our national media these days, what are the things we really need to be concerned about? In this week’s boralogue, John looks at some storm waves on the horizon, including a political blowback following the Mueller report fiasco, an impending downturn in the economy, and the biggest battle for the future of this country: fighting to retain our freedom of speech.
Freedom of conscience and religion is being attacked north of our border. Independent researcher and author Michael Wagner (www.educationunlimited.ca) joins us from Canada to discuss how, if doctors in Ontario have a moral objection to abortion, they don’t have to perform it but they are required to give the patient a referral for it. If they refuse, they could face substantial penalties.
We have heard the chant, “Build the wall!” but why do we need one? Spencer Morrison (www.nationaleconomicseditorial.com), Founder and Editor-in-Chief of National Economics Editorial, shares the story of Hadrian’s Wall, built by the Roman Empire in what is now modern-day England, and gives examples of how walls protect the people and culture of a nation.
Finally this week, we invite back to the program Dexter Van Zile (www.camera.org), Christian Media Analyst for CAMERA, who follows up his analysis of the Ground Truth Project and how the group has maligned both evangelicals and Zionists in favor of a politically correct narrative.
John’s quote of the week:
“If you look at the argument that the state is going to be the determiner of what is moral and immoral, then we never would have abolished slavery. The state had once said that slavery was a legal thing so by today’s logic, people shouldn’t have argued against it. With this new worldview shift, everything has been flipped on its head.”
In this week’s Extras segment, we play John’s latest appearance on KYMS, a local north Idaho radio station. After waxing nostalgic about radio days of yore, John goes on to discuss the media’s coverage of religion, immigration into the U.S., the latest on the Middle East peace plan, and gives a persecuted church update, focusing largely on Africa.
