Despite constant promotion for and adoption of critical race theory policies, teachers unions are now publicly washing their hands of the theory. Any mention of CRT has been erased from the NEA website. Lindsey Curnutte (heritageaction.com), Press Secretary for Heritage Action for America, joins us today to talk about it and to promote Heritage's new e-book on how to combat critical race theory, which you can find at crtbook.com. Now that parents are waking up to the dangers of CRT, they need to stay awake and stay diligent.
Critical race theory and the 1619 Project have set up shop in America's schools, but more and more parents are starting to realize that their children are being fed a steady diet of hate and incorrect history. April Few (uspie.org), Communications Director at U.S. Parents Involved in Education (U.S. PIE), describes how her organization has been involved in the fight against critical race theory and offers some solutions for parents who are facing this in their child's school. Critical race theory teaches children to hate our country and to hate each other. And April correctly identifies the ultimate goal behind CRT.
You've heard of the separation of church and state, but there's another separation that predates that: the separation of church and science. Do you have to be an atheist if you're a scientist? Back with us this week is Dr. Stephen Meyer (returnofthegodhypothesis.com), Director of the Center for Science and Culture at the Discovery Institute. He looks at the intelligent design of the universe and contrasts that with theories from the other side. He even dives into the multiverse controversy. He shows that church and science actually fit together and that God's hand is steering the wheel.
We pivot from intelligent design to the topic of racism for the rest of the show. It sounds like the U.S. is one big institutional and systemically racist country with even our founding documents oozing discrimination. That's what we're hearing, but is it actually true? Eric Kaufmann (manhattan-institute.org), Adjunct Fellow at the Manhattan Institute, is with us to discuss his detailed studies into perceived racism from different swaths of society and how no one, regardless of geography or skin color, is benefiting from media and political narratives. When words and sensitive topics like this become weaponized, discussion is shut down and the problem only worsens.
If race is supposedly dividing our country, how should Christians tackle the issue? Rounding out the show this week is Pastor Marcus Gill (marcusgillinternational.org), Founder and President of Marcus Gill International. He draws on his experience in the black community to shows how politicians don't really understand or want to help minorities. He goes on to urge Christians to love everyone, even those who hate you or simply don't agree with you. Despite what the mainstream narrative seems to be, the strength of our country is in both unity and diversity.
Race is supposedly dividing the country, but one pastor believes that the real division is a result of a lack of love and compassion. Pastor Marcus Gill (marcusgillinternational.org), Founder and President of Marcus Gill International, joins us today to discuss the race relations narrative put out by the media and politicians. He believes that minorities should back politicians that allow them to provide for themselves and their families. To combat the division, Christians need to love everyone – even those who hate you or simply don't agree with you. The strength of our country is in both unity and diversity. We can see color in other people but still love them and still treat them as Jesus would.
News stories pile up here in the studio so every once in awhile John, Carol, and Steve sit around and discuss important issues stemming from those stories. On today's podcast, the trio look at the cold wave that hit Texas and the issues surrounding that, a bill in the House that seems to target only one person – former President Trump, the push toward a digital currency, and Andrew Cuomo's view from underneath the bus amid the New York nursing home scandal. They also examine the chaos surrounding postmodernist thinking and do their best to try and define the nebulous term 'whiteness.'
