A Happy Fourth of July and Happy Canada Day.
First, since America seems totally determined to jump head first
into hard core socialism, John does an extended boralogue detailing
the three steps of socialism, how it starts with great moral
promise and ends both in moral and economic ruin.
There was an important Supreme Court decision this week confirming
the right to bear arms as an individual not a collective right.
Larry Pratt from Gun Owners of America (www.gunowners.org) joins us
to discuss the significance of the decision as well as other gun
Finally, as part of an informal ongoing series on recognizing the
relative dialectic in public life and what to do about it,
philosophy professor and pastor John Coleman (www.johnecoleman.org)
returns to tell us how he handles it in his classes and the African
American community where he pastors.
Be careful this Fourth of July. We need to keep our listeners.Read More
The effort to revive the Fairness Doctrine to shut down talk radio
keeps raising its ugly head, but finally there’s been some action
in Congress to halt this process. Unfortunately the bill has been
bottled up in committee. Seaton Motley from the Media Research
Center (www.mediaresearch.org) provides a status report of this
Liberation Theology’s impact on American politics is more
penetrating than most Americans have suspected. So it’s time we
stop to examine the Marxists roots of the movement, its aberrations
from orthodox Christianity and its manifestations in religion and
politics today. Dr. Ron Rhodes, Ph.D., (www.ronrhodes.org) is able
to chronicle the history of this significant movement.
With only 136 days left in silly season, John’s boralogue rotates
around the nonsense flowing through congress in response to the
current energy crisis: much hot air and few viable proposals.
In the light of global inflation and the possible “death” of some
leading currencies, calls are being made for a global currency to
“solve” currency problems. Pat Wood (www.augustreview.com) joins
us for the latest on international banking.
Worldviews affect how you raise your children, because no education
is values-free and no education occurs in a social vacuum. But
what happens when some believe the state should set education’s
moral values and others believe parents should do so? The debate
finds its parallels from Europe to the U.S. to Australia. Stephen
O’Doherty, Chief Executive Officer of Christian Schools Australia
(www.csa.edu.au), provides an insight to the similarity of the
debates in England, Germany and the U.S.
John’s boralogue recalls the days of the Carter administration and
the deja vu it seems to represent as to where we are now. We seem
poised to repeat the same errors President Carter did in 1976 and
Herbert Hoover did in 1929.
Hi gang! We need time out today from the normal hab-trab of
politics and economics in order to do backgrounders on current
First of all, there has been much talk of black liberation theology
in the mainline media. So exactly what is liberation theology?
John’s extended boralogue outlines the nature of its Marxist
origins, and why so many churches embraced it since World War II,
including its merger into the civil rights movement.
Although liberation theology roared through mainline denominations,
it never really caught in evangelical or fundamentalist circles
until recently, when its Marxist methodology was repackaged into
church growth programs. Key to that conversion was the figure of
business guru Peter Drucker. Sarah Leslie from Herescope
(www.herescope.com) returns for an intense examination of the
mentoring relationship between Peter Drucker and his protege,
church growth leader Rick Warren.
