Jeremy Dys: Free Exercise Thereof

Login to access this full program.

 

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…” Thus begins the First Amendment. Jeremy Dys (www.firstliberty.org), Special Counsel for First Liberty, joins us to show examples of how government has chosen to ignore the free exercise part of that amendment. There weren’t many examples of having to defend our rights until the early 1940s when the number of religious liberty cases increased dramatically.

Jeremy discusses how the government is demanding that the public do things instead of giving them important information and trusting the public to make the right decision. And when it comes to religion, it is being treated more like an infecting virus than COVID-19.

Several years ago, the Bremerton, Washington School District fired football coach Joe Kennedy over a brief silent prayer he made on the field after a game. Stephanie Taub (www.firstliberty.org), Senior Counsel at First Liberty Institute, joins us to discuss the status of the case, as well as the freedom of religion and the right to religious expression.

Ready for Battle

Is your narrative and worldview standing on solid ground? In this week’s boralogue, John shows that because freedoms of speech, religion, and conscience are under attack in the West, we need to know who we are and what we believe. Rooting ourselves in God’s Truth will prepare us for the spiritual battles plaguing our freedoms and will allow us to endure when the battle is over. We need to put on the full armor of God and take our stand.

There are differences between not only Christianity and other religions but also within Christian sects. Bodie Hodge (www.answersingenesis.org), Speaker and Writer for Answers in Genesis, analyzes these differences by looking at worldviews from a religious perspective, what we base our beliefs on, and the importance of the authority of God’s Word.

Assaults on freedom of religion will have an impact on the economy and business. Bill Walton (www.cgtv.us), Chairman of Rappahannock Ventures and host of On Common Ground, looks at new rights trumping old ones with recent court rulings, faith institutions under attack, and shows that we need to be educated in both history and current events in order to stand up under religious persecution.

Finally we are joined by Paul House (www.beesondivinity.com), Professor of Divinity at Beeson Divinity School, who reviews the seminary formation Dietrich Bonhoeffer required of his students, which was a radical departure from the norms of his day and based on a dedication to the Word of God as pertinent for each of his students, rather than something merely of academic interest.

There is no Section 6 intelligence brief this week due to the Thanksgiving holiday. We will return next week with important geopolitical stories.

Government is the Problem

Persecution of Christians comes from many areas of the world such as Communist nations or Islamic regimes. It is even rearing its ugly head in the West in the form of new laws and restrictions of freedom. In this week’s boralogue, John gives us the five steps that lead to persecution and shows how they are manifested in news stories from China, Great Britain, and the United States. Thank you to all our listeners who donated to help Pakistani Christian Pastor X. He still needs your support. If you would like to help, click the button to donate to Pastor X and his family.

Recently, millions of government employees had their personal online information hacked by cyber terrorists. Soon after, the military announced that their personnel’s health records would be stored online as well. Twila Brase (www.cchfreedom.org), President and Co-Founder of Citizens’ Council for Health Freedom, examines the push for a national patient database, reviews the misunderstandings of HIPAA laws, and asks the question, who exactly will have access to our medical information?

President Obama would allow the Social Security Administration to have access to medical information by making sure recipients are up to the task of owning a firearm. Larry Pratt (www.gunowners.org), Executive Director of Gun Owners of America, shows that under the plan, psychiatric diagnoses can affect your eligibility to own a gun. It’s an ultimatum between owning a gun and receiving benefits. With a choice like that, the Constitution is bypassed and the government wins.

It is winner take all as one right is trumped by another in the wake of recent Supreme Court decisions on same sex marriage and eminent domain. Brian Walsh (www.civilrightsresearch.org), President and Founder of the Civil Rights Research Center, discusses the trampling of freedom of religion and shows the correlation between government persecution of Christians and increase in social hostility toward religion. I may not agree with what you say and it turns out I won’t defend your right to say it either!

The bloat of government has gotten out of control, but the Founding Fathers gave us a way to fix the problem. Patrick Murray (www.gopatrickmurray.com), Retired U.S. Army Colonel, reviews Article 5 of the Constitution and reveals a plan underway to convene a Convention of States. Two amendments are proposed: Congressional term limits and a balanced budget.

Our weekly intelligence news briefing, Section 6!As always, join us online for our weekly Section 6 intelligence briefing, featuring analysis by John on important stories highlighting emerging geopolitical trends around the world. This week, John tackles the topic of iconoclasm.
