Talking about the Things that Matter Most on November 3, 2017
4:00 – Washington is Regulating American Indians to Death
Most of today’s public discourse regarding Native Americans concerns whether the Washington Redskins should change their name, or whether we should redesignate Columbus Day as Indigenous Peoples Day. Naomi Schaefer Riley has visited reservations across the country and has learned that such placating moves are not what Native Americans need most. They’re desperate for real help and their lives are being destroyed by D.C. bureaucracy. Naomi joins us with more.
4:20 – What Happened to Classic Liberalism?
In a few weeks, thousands of Americans across the country plan to step outside and “scream helplessly at the sky.” You guessed it – it’s how they’ve chosen to commemorate the anniversary of Trump’s election. In many ways, contemporary liberalism has become nothing but a facade for undermining existing social and legal mores. We saw this during the Obama administration with the HHS Mandate fiasco and continue to see it with the no-holds barred push on gender identity issues. How did liberalism get to this point? We’ll take a look with John Safranek.
5:00 – The Origins of the Quran
What does Islamic tradition say about the origins of the Koran? Does it differ from what Western academics have discovered? How do Islamic beliefs about the Koran compare to Christian beliefs about the origin and formation of Scriptures? Dr. Gabriel Reynolds joins us.
5:40 – It’s My Life and I’ll Do What God Wants
The 1965 hit song “It’s My Life,” performed by the Animals, expressed the angst of a generation, proclaiming “It’s my life and I’ll do what I want. It’s my mind and I’ll think what I want.” For composer Carl D’Errico, it’s a deeply personal statement that reflects a crucial step on his journey from despair to Christian hope. Carl shares his story with us.
