We often discuss how radical liberalism is eventually exposed and dismissed because of its obvious self-defeating contradictions. In their zeal to develop more and more “protected classes” of people, they eventually run into a contradiction they cannot reconcile with their attempts to make everyone feel like a victim. This morning we look at liberals and feminists along with conservative women in pushing back against the awful “Equality Act ” introduced by House Democrats that would impose national protections and special rights to those who identify as transgender.
We also look at a growing number of Catholics who are now considering leaving their church because of the wide ranging sexual abuse scandals within their church.
In our first segment we talk with Preston Condra, of Sufficient Word Publishing, about his new book aimed at helping parents explain the gospel to their children and helping them develop a biblical world view as they head into the dangerous waters of public education.
New from Preston and Kelly Chondra: Papa, Let’s Talk
“Papa, Let’s Talk” is a story about sharing Jesus with children. Kelly asks her grandfather, who she calls Papa, to tell her about Jesus and he shares with her the Gospel of Christ found in 1 Corinthians 15:1-4. Using photographs from the author’s own family photo album, “Papa, Let’s Talk” provides encouragement to preschool and early elementary school children to learn Bible verses at a time in life when they are best able to do so.”
It’s never too early to teach children the Gospel and read Scriptures to them!
Now I make known to you, brethren, the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received, in which also you stand, 2 by which also you are saved, if you hold fast the word which I preached to you, unless you believed in vain. 3 For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 4 and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures; (1 Corinthians 15:1-4)
A coalition of radical feminists, lesbians, and politically conservative women are petitioning the government to scrap “gender identity” in federal civil rights legislation that’s being considered in Congress.
The inclusion of this into the Equality Act, these women say, erases sex-based protections feminists and others have fought for in previous decades, and women as a category are essentially scrubbed from the law. Women and girls face increased risk of exploitation by predatory males who will use gender identity to invade their private spaces, they maintain.
The Equality Act is an update to the 1964 civil rights law guaranteeing freedoms previously denied to African-Americans, and is considered by many to be one of Martin Luther King Jr.’s legacies.
…The concept of gender identity is not only unrelated to sexual orientation, in some respects it is directly contrary and undermines the ability to prevent discrimination and harassment against same-sex attracted individuals.”
More Catholics are questioning their membership and participation in the church after heavily publicized sexual abuse scandals. Thirty-seven percent of Catholics in the United States say they have been questioning whether or not they would stay in the church after details of the abuse and cover-up became public.
