Lately, we've begun to see several folks on the Left become victims of the very cancel culture they seem to revel in. John and Producer Steve look at how we got to this moment in time with cancel culture. What are its origins and why does cancel culture messaging often contradict itself? Relying on feelings while stating that there are no absolute truths – these are but two of the many things children were taught about life the past two decades. We're seeing that come to fruition now in this chaos known as cancel culture.
John opens the show this week with a brief comment on how our Constitution is working exactly as it was meant to work. And in doing so, it is stymieing the plans of the Left, which is why you see the constant attacks on the Constitution.
We then transition to our first topic: abortion. Abortion is in the spotlight due to the recent Dobbs decision, but how is the Church dealing with it? We welcome Dr. David J. Ayers (faithandfreedom.com), Fellow for Marriage and Family at the Institute for Faith and Freedom. He looks at how the church has taught about abortion historically and how they deal with women who suffer from the aftereffects of it. He relays his own experiences in how the Church has handled the issue of abortion.
When we discuss the topic of totalitarianism, both in the past and happening now, it's important to take a step back and study what exactly totalitarianism is. Helping us do that this week is literature and history teacher Walker Larson (thehazelnut.substack.com). He describes the different stages of totalitarianism, based on what we've seen in history, and shows some pretty shocking similarities to society today. If you want to understand how raging at the Constitution can lead to tyranny, this is the interview to listen to.
Finally, we look at a blatant power grab on the globalist stage. The World Health Organization has been horrible when it comes to accurate medical information, but they are maneuvering for more power. Rounding out the show this week is Alex Newman (thenewamerican.com), CEO of Liberty Sentinel Media and Senior Editor at The New American magazine. He describes how the United Nations is attempting to give the WHO powers to declare pandemic emergencies in any country regardless of whether that country gives consent or not.
It's double guest Friday here on the podcast as we look at how the Left is trying to end run some recent SCOTUS rulings. First up today we have Craig Bannister (cnsnews.com), Blog Editor at CNS News. He looks at a story out of California where the state Attorney General is attempting to end run the SCOTUS decision in the New York conceal carry case. How? By issuing a completely subjective 'good moral character' standard.
Next, we go north to behind the Maple Curtain where Prime Minister Trudeau is just absolutely outraged about the overturn of Roe down here. Joining us to discuss this is David Cooke (campaignlifecoalition.com), National Campaigns Manager for Campaign Life Coalition in Toronto, Canada. What is Trudeau doing? He's proposing to deny tax exempt status to pregnancy crisis centers.
The topic of abortion has been thrust back into the spotlight after the recent Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade. But the topic of abortion in the Church has always been a difficult one. Joining us today to chat about it is Dr. David J. Ayers (faithandfreedom.com), Fellow for Marriage and Family at the Institute for Faith and Freedom. He and John tackle the question of how the church should teach about abortion. More women than you think in the church have had an abortion and most of them are afraid to mention it. Dr. Ayers relays his experience compassionately discussing the issue in the classroom and at church.
The Supreme Court is poised to give their decision on the Dobbs case in Mississippi – better known as the possible repeal of Roe v Wade. We know what happened in this country post-Roe, but many people don't know how we got to Roe to begin with. Joining us today to chat about that is Dr. John Sparks (faithandfreedom.com), retired Dean of Arts & Letters at Grove City College and Fellow at the college's Institute for Faith and Freedom. He looks at the Griswold v Connecticut case from 1965, how it allowed for Roe to succeed, and the judicial activism that has occurred since then.
