John tells us every day that Steel on Steel focuses on economics, politics, and religion. Today, we welcome the Director of Jihad Watch, Robert Spencer (jihadwatch.org) to the podcast, to discuss how all three of those issues are immersed in global dysfunction. He looks at the surging reliance on digital currency platforms, the moving away from the dollar, how bad policies by the Biden administration are projecting weakness to the world, and the nature of jihad and Christian persecution around the world.
John is on the road today but that doesn't stop him from being a guest on KYMS radio with Lee Lancaster. John and Lee discuss Russia's invasion of Ukraine as well as the impact on Christians in that country. As always John gives a sobering account of the persecuted church around the world, including in Nigeria and surrounding countries as well as in Iran, China, and India. There was also an incident in Australia, believe it or not, where police interrupted a Catholic mass to force parishioners to wear masks.
