Recently, Artur Pawlowski (streetchurch.ca), Founder of Street Church Ministries in Alberta, Canada, traveled to John's church to give a speech and John caught up with him for an impromptu interview. Artur and John discuss the battle ahead for Western civilization and how we need God in this battle if we are going to win. The enemy is clearly defined; they are the totalitarians and the ones who help them. One of the key reasons people have fallen to the enemy in the past, has been the failure to stand up en masse to the tyranny. We must learn from this lesson. And if we are going to be successful in standing up, we'd better get started because the enemy has already begun to fight.
There are rules for thee, but not for me. Seems to be the woke battle cry today. In this week's boralogue, John looks at the outrage against people and companies for thoughts and policies that were completely reasonable five minutes ago. He breaks down several logical fallacies wrapped up in progressive narratives. When words are weaponized in pursuit of those narratives, truth becomes a casualty.
Joining John in the studio is his wife, Carol, a homeschool and tutoring pro, along with Rachael Grant, who has homeschooled her kids for the last nine years. All three discuss the realities of teaching your children at home, the difference between homeschooling and public schooling at home, and the importance of a values-based curriculum.
We then welcome Ginny Gentles (www.iwf.org), Visiting Fellow at the Independent Women's Forum, who discusses how educational funding in the time of virus lockdowns should follow the child, and one way to do that is through educational savings accounts.
Finally this week, Twila Brase (www.cchfreedom.org), President and Co-Founder of Citizens' Council for Health Freedom, joins us to examine the potential realities of contact tracing and the broad redefinition of the term ‘case' which has led to a skyrocketing – and possibly misleading – number of new coronavirus ‘cases.'

The coronavirus caused nationwide lock-downs and closures and one of the hardest hit sectors was education. Joining John in the studio today is his wife, Carol, who is an education expert and former homeschool teacher and Rachael Grant, who has homeschooled her kids for the last nine years. They discuss the difference between homeschooling your children and learning via the public school at home – two very different situations. The most important factor in how to educate your children is what is contained in the curriculum.
