A new book is out about how the 1976 election signaled a sea change in American politics. Joining us today is the author of that book, Daniel Williams (westga.edu), Professor of History at the University of West Georgia. He describes the shift in electoral maps, party policies, and the thinking of the country in general that began in 1976 that has resulted in what we’re seeing today. He goes on to chat about the Catholic Church and the changes that have befallen it since the late 1960s.
Following up on John's boralogue from yesterday regarding the abortion debate, we welcome gifted pro-life speaker and host of the UnAborted! podcast Seth Gruber (sethgruber.com) to the show today. He and John tackle the silence from the Christian church in regards to abortion and compare it to silence from the church in the past. Seth looks at the benefits of speaking up and fighting to protect the unborn and the successes that he's had. Eventually everyone will have to make a stand and make a choice. Silence may be that choice, but even silence will speak loudly about where you stand on the issue.
