Rejection of Reality

Broadcast Running Time: 1:54:55

One thing we’re good at here at Steel on Steel is accurately relating how we got to where we are today and making sense of the confusion. In this week’s extended boralogue, John does just that by first giving a backgrounder on how America’s thinking and worldview has evolved over the last century.

He then explains how a worldview has to be based on truth and reality, not on personal feelings because eventually that worldview will be challenged and when it is, you’ll need the right weapons to defend it. He finishes up praising alternative news sources, like talk radio, that helped people realize there were others out there who thought as they did.

Oliver MelnickAntisemitism is growing, not just in the Middle East, but also in Europe and the United States. Olivier Melnick (, Director at Chosen People Ministries, dissects the different versions of antisemitism and urges Christians to speak out against it or they could be next.

Dr. Vishal MangalwadiSharia law is obviously not compatible with the democracy and freedom in the West. We welcome back to the program Vishal Mangalwadi (, Founder and President of Book of the Revelation Movement, who is joined by Christian missionary David McDonald. Together they discuss why some Muslims have trouble adapting to Western society, which includes a large amount of misinformation within Islam.

John’s quote of the week:
Whenever you enter a new paradigm, you think the benefits of the old paradigm, like stability, a good economy, and sound families, will all stay in place when you reject the foundation it was built on. That’s what is happening right now, except we’re beginning to reject the rejection; we’re trying to get back to where we came from and re-stabilize. That’s part of the conflict in the body politic today.

On this week’s extra segment, we bring back a favorite that has been on hiatus – namely John’s appearance on local radio station KYMS. John and the host, Lee, in addition to covering the martyred church, discuss a number of topics including the Coronavirus, media narratives, intersectionality, and the inability of progressives to debate.
