Christian persecution is a worldwide epidemic and nowhere is it so severe as it is in Pakistan. Author and Middle East expert Raymond Ibrahim (raymondibrahim.com) is back with us today. He and John have a candid conversation on this sensitive and at times gruesome topic. They discuss causes and what's being done about it, as well as the different locations, aside from Pakistan, where the worst persecution is taking place. The worldview philosophy behind those who persecute may sound familiar.
If you don't live in the United Kingdom, you may not be well-versed on the Brexit situation, which has once again popped up in the news. In this week's boralogue, John gives a backgrounder on Brexit, from its sketchy origins to the recent inability of Prime Minister May to engineer a deal to current Prime Minister Johnson's troubles this past week. There are long rolling agendas afoot that ultimately thwart the will of the people and cater to the globalists.
Social justice warriors have begun changing the meaning of certain words in an attempt to change culture. Philip Carl Salzman (www.mindingthecampus.org), Professor Emeritus of Anthropology at McGill University, joins us to discuss how SJWs are in fact re-engineering language. It lasts from early education into universities to the point where people have begun self-censoring just to be left alone.
Finally we welcome back to the program author and Middle East expert Raymond Ibrahim (www.raymondibrahim.com) who examines a number of topics including Coptic Christian persecution in Egypt, Islamic terrorists at our southern border, the different perceptions of moderate and radical Muslims, and the political correctness that keeps us from getting at the truth.
John's quote of the week:
"If left to its own devices, the social justice argument and everything as it is framed would collapse from its own logical inconsistency and its deviation from language. The only thing that keeps it going is brute force."
In this week's Extras segment, we play John's latest appearance on Stand Up For The Truth on Q90FM out of Green Bay, Wisconsin. There are a lot of distractions keeping us from focusing on God - money, social media, politics, entertainment. It's difficult, but we are to love the Lord with all our hearts and minds. John takes a look at several of society's distractions.
