The Sad Legacy of Socialism

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 issues.

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.

The Roots of Liberation Theology

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 ongoing fight.

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.

Toward a Global Currency

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.

The Marxist Roots of Church Growth

Hi gang! We need time out today from the normal hab-trab of politics and economics in order to do backgrounders on current worldview issues.

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.
