Radio France Internationale publishes obituaries of people still alive

"Radio france international accidentally published the obituaries of bunch of famous. And still very much alive people including the queen of england. The radio station has since apologized for what it said was a technical problem that occurred when they were moving their website over to a new content management system the bbc notes that media outlets will often pre right the obituaries of high profile individuals in order to have them on hand to publish quickly in the wake of someone's passing at whatever that the broadcaster accidentally published a hundred draft stories quote. Not just to its own site but to partner sites including google and yahoo end quote is fairly mortifying almost literally i suppose i mean while it may be a common occurrence to pre right these obituaries. It certainly doesn't help. Our climate of misinformation and fake celebrity deaths trending on twitter every other day. Quoting the bbc. French businessman bernie tabby seventy seven. Who was on the list of people who had their death notice published by f. I has had his obituary published on at least two occasions by other news outlets and quotes other living humans whose obituaries were published today. By radio france international include president. Jimmy carter ayatollah committee and clint eastwood in mansfield joked on twitter quote. Lots of outraged people writing in demanding to know why they aren't important. Enough to have a pre written obituary ready and quotes and as somebody else pointed out on twitter. This is a bit reminiscent of the case of romanian man. Constantine rail you whose wife ordered a death certificate for him after he'd been gone in turkey for a decade seeking employment in losing touch with his family upon returning to romania and finding out what had happened he tried to get the death certificate overturned but the courts said he showed up too late to appeal and the death certificate for the dude standing there in their office asking about it would remain. Valid really was officially deceased for two years. During which time he was unable to find employment since all of his paperwork was invalid before the country finally overturned his death certificate in two thousand eighteen.

"constantine" Discussed on How I Built This

"I'm guy is on the show today how Martin Constantine and his partners emerged from a failed business to launch a little cosmetic store that turned into a global beauty BRAC. Lush. Back. In nineteen ninety-five I was studying in London my sister. Karen. Came to visit me that year. She'd been to London before. So on her visit, she was the guide we traveled through the market stalls Candan lock we picked up some indie records at rough trade and made a special trip to covent garden to visit a newly open shop. Called Lush I hadn't heard of it but my sister had instructions from all friends back in L. A.. Get me stuff from. Lush. Now at the time, it was one of two lush locations in the world, and this is before e commerce. So unless you went to the store, you couldn't get the products. Remember the overpowering smell of roses and lavender and honey and lemon I remember these long loaves of colorful soap laid out on tables where you could slice off a Chonkin pay for it. By weight there were bath bombs and shampoos and lotions. It looked like the produce department at a fancy grocery store. You didn't see a whole lot of plastic packaging and in front of each product, you'd find a bright colorful chalkboard with a description. It was unlike any beauty product store I had ever seen. And it probably explains why then There was a line to get in. Lush was part of a new wave of beauty companies that came onto the scene around that time. Many of them influenced by the body shock and it's iconic founder Anita Roddick who as you will hear features prominently in this story is well. The main founder of Lush Mark Constantine had already seen incredible success and then catastrophic failure by the time he launched his venture. In fact, right before mark. Open Lush. He's lost most of his money on a mail order business that went bust. But. Lush turned his fortunes. And and today it's a brand with more than nine hundred stores around the world. Now, in recent months, the pandemic has hit the company hard. For time all of its stores in the UK, the US and Australia were closed. But. Lush has also seen a massive surge in online orders and later on, we'll get an update on how mark and the company have navigated the pandemic and the global economic fallout. But first a little bit about mark's background. He grew up in weymouth seaside town in the south of England. When he was only two years old his dad's split from the family and went off to Africa and mark never saw him again while he was growing up. And his mother. She took mark and moved in with her mother marks Grandma. It was me my mom, my grandmother who really brought me up a my aunt. So. I was really bored three. Yeah. What did your mom do? She was a journalist in the local newspaper on I knew my mom had to work in order for us to to be okay. It was very, very comfortable life full of love and hugs and security. My mom was always there and I love my nine I looked up to my nine and so it was comfortable. Very nice. Obey. Feminine Life I've felt. Spoilt To be honest, obviously, my nine drilled into me the proper values as well. with proverbs and all sorts of other things you know I I had to rights repeatedly better best never them rest till. My good is better. My better best things like that. But then I guess. Around the time you were twelve. So you like you stopped living with your grandmother like Yulia mom moved out. what happened was they there was larger a my mother married the lawyer we moved to my grandmother died. I didn't realize probably until much later in my life high much that'd affected me I felt responsible. I think from my grandmother's death for most of my life because obviously I was important to her and I wasn't there anymore and I couldn't after her and she died on then my my stepfather was. Very, cold I would say and violent. But that's very typical upbringing fifties because they'd come is war gentlemen. There was a lost friends some of them had seen that friends killed or relatives and So it was you know not surprising that those people were bringing up my generation went all the best balanced people in the world. What kind of I mean what kind of kid were you? What do you remember about how you responded to those circumstances? Did you I don't know retreat into yourself or did you act out? Did you fight with your mom? What do you remember or didn't fire my mom but I force a lot with my Stepdad physical fights and they would argue we would all argue. It was just I want to say unsatisfactory which doesn't side like this is like a strange word to use it but. Certainly when I came to build my own home I, for example, never locked the front door. You know I I make an effort on those smaller things that tell people that they wanted to. Careful. Kid were you at school? Are you could student? School was still difficult for. Really. Was it was just heart for you. I. Mean there were a lot of gangs. Gangs were normal in the fifties for for everyone there were lots of gang. So I went to the grammar school, which was the best school in. The top ten percents shoots went to the grammar school. Everyone's surprise when I got in. And then I wasted it while I. was there except that I did make friends and we were in particular gang where we could make. Bombs and things. Can. Make bombs. What we were the news like. PIPEBOMBS. They were we killing sugar bombs with batons permanganate. Glycerin Fuses also savings on we went making them for the IRA season, the Perron purposes to intimidate other gang. Was that William. Golding. Lord of the flies Yup that period of time. So if you can imagine that style of of living when that's how it was about for me on those to physical. Yeah. So I'm not going to fight anyone if I can possibly avoid fighter. No, I talked my way. I'd. Martini, think around the age where you kind of you know these many things are happening. Do you remember being sad when you were a kid or or yes you do every when I seen people sins that was one girl who I went to school have called Al's Cox and I saw some twenty years later and she said so glad you're life work tight well was such a sad child out you know I mean I, missed my father even though I'd never known him. I, think I was melancholy. Use Traditional. Old fashioned word. Yeah. I mean, my mother missed my father I missed my father I suspect I caught it from her. JEREMY AS A. Medium as it were.

"For want of a nail, the shoe was lost for want of a shoe. The horse was lost for want of a horse. The rider was lost for want of a writer the message was lost for want of the message the battle was lost for want of a battle, the kingdom was lost. Small things can have reverberating effects on history both good and bad. In fourteen fifty three, the great walled city of Constantinople fell it had withstood sieges for eleven hundred years. It had held off fire from the then state of the art cannons for weeks. The Byzantine said even Ford soldiers trying to tunnel under the wall autumn Turks were finally able to overrun the great city because someone left the door open. One of the many gates in the fourteen miles of wall had been left open during the night and the Ottomans flooded in. Killing Constantine the eleventh in the battle and bringing an end to the eastern Roman Empire. My Name's Moxy and this is your brain on facts. It was a freezing Christmas night in Trenton. New Jersey during the revolutionary war. The English Colonel Johann Gottlieb Rall. Commander. Of a mercenary infantry regiment of fourteen hundred has seen soldiers from Germany sat down to a good supper and an evening of entertainment. He and his men were celebrating their recent victories over George Washington's volunteer army, and of course, the Christmas holiday. Safe from the bitter cold and the pelting sleet inside a wealthy merchants home that they had commandeered. They relaxed safe in the assumption that no one in their right mind would possibly try to cross the Delaware River at night in a blinding winter storm. Someone challenged role to a game of chess, and before long he was deep in tactics and strategy. There was a knock at the door. And exhausted young. Messenger boy came in bearing a note from loyalist farmer. It's important to remember that about a third of colonists still consider themselves to be British and didn't want the revolution. Raw paid the boy little notice took the note and put it in his coat pocket without opening it. That pocketed piece of paper would cost him and the war effort nearly. Two hours earlier and ten miles away. Washington's men had begun being ferried across the icy Delaware. River. It took over ten hours to get all twenty four hundred men over to the New Jersey side. The conditions were so adverse five men froze to death. Then began the arduous march to Trenton in the dark. The plan had been to attack the town from all sides before dawn, but the troops didn't arrive until eight am. During the attack which lasted only an hour forty of the German. Henson's were killed and the remaining thousand surrendered. Colonel was mortally wounded. When his body was found the unopened note warning of Washington's crossing was still in his pocket. If role had read it, he would surely have had his gross of professional soldiers prepared. He allowed his pride and the weather to lull him into thinking his enemy was not a threat. Had he won the battle he may well have killed George Washington James Madison James Monroe John Marshall Aaron Burr and Andrew. Hamilton The. Second, most common premise in alternate history circles behind what if Germany won World War Two is what if the south one the American civil war? Two pieces of paper dropped in a farmer's field almost brought that about. Confederate General Robert E. Lee. Whose statue in the middle of my hometown of Richmond, Virginia has recently been given the historical context. It's so sorely needed. In the form of tons of. Graffiti. Issued Special Order one ninety one during the Maryland campaign before the Battle of Antietam. In the order lead divided his army, delineating the routes and roads to be taken and the timing for the units to reconvene. Adjutant Robert H Chilton penned copies of the letter endorsed them in Lee's name. Staff. Officers distributed the copies to various confederate generals. General Thomas Stonewall Jackson in turn copied the document for one of his subordinates, major general, D H Hill who was to exercise independent command as the rearguard. A Union soldier Corporal Barton W Mitchell of the twenty seven. Th Indiana volunteers found two pieces of paper bundled with three cigars as he marched across a farm in Maryland an area recently vacated by Hill and his men after they had camped there. The order provided the Union army with valuable information, concerning the army of Northern Virginia's movements and campaign plans. Upon receiving lease lost order. Major General George McClellan leading the Union army of the Potomac proclaimed. Here is a piece of paper with which if I cannot whip Bob Ely, I will be willing to go home. He immediately moved his army in hopes of foiling lease battle plans. When Lee heard a copy of special order one, ninety, one was missing he. He knew his scattered army was vulnerable and rushed to reunite his units Antietam Creek near Sharp's Berg. Lee's troops arrived tired hungry and many were sick. The Battle of Antietam, would go down as the bloodiest battle of the American civil war with casualties recorded as twenty, three, thousand dead wounded, which was usually as good as dead or unaccounted for over the course of the half day battle. That's nearly two thousand soldiers in our one every two seconds. When night fell both sides ceased fire together, their dead and wounded. The next day Lee began the painstaking job of moving his ravage troops back Virginia. Here, some scholars argue another solitary decision had far reaching consequences. Despite having the advantage. McClellan. Allowed Lee to retreat without resistance. From his point of view, he'd accomplished his mission by forcing Lee's troops from Maryland and preventing confederate win on union soil. President, Lincoln however thought McClellan missed a great opportunity to potentially end the war three years earlier than it ultimately would.

There's very little of the time actually asking the questions and when they did, they ranged into conspiracy theories like anti conservative bias on social media as well. It's fears about China and how U. S. Tech companies are furnishing technology for the Chinese government. What is at stake here, Josh? I mean, what is the endgame for Congress today? Do they have specific proposals in mind? Absolutely. There are a number of major antitrust cases in the works Right now the government is levying against these companies. They deal with Amazon being uncompetitive against other partners that cell on its marketplace. Google showing its results for its own products above other Internet companies and competitors, Facebook buying companies and copying them instead of competing fairly on its own on DH Apple, using its APP store. Give to take a massive cut of revenue from APP developers. Okay, So if we look at this is political theater at the risk of being a little cynical here any outstanding performances today, either from the CEOs or from members of Congress. You know, I don't really want Oh, deemed the senators and representatives actions worthwhile. They wasted so much of their time and could have gotten real answers for the American people. So they don't really deserve to be. Ah, applauded for grandstanding. I do think that some of the major points Included the reveal that there were emails showing that Mark's October talked about you buying instagram as a way to take out a major competitors to neutralize the competitive threat, and that could Beats of the reopening of the case about whether the instagram the acquisition by Facebook for a $1,000,000,000 should have been allowed on whether Facebook and Instagram should be broken apart. If you handicap things. Which of the should one of these big companies be disassembled into little pieces? What do you think Which company would be the most likely Google's businesses range the widest span of different areas. Amazon is by far the most powerful. I think in the U. S economy right now, But Facebook is certainly the one with the most political. Will they get the most questioning the most iron from the public. And so I think that they're the biggest political football for representatives to kick If they can break up Facebook. They can say that they were a champion to their people, even though it might not solve a major problem of Facebook because its scale actually helps it to prevent foreign election interference in some of the other problem. So it's hard to say which will have the most regulation levied upon it, But we're definitely seeing more and more political will to do something against companies.

They deal with Amazon being uncompetitive against other partners that cell on its marketplace. Google showing its results for its own products above other Internet companies and competitors, Facebook buying companies and copying them instead of competing fairly on its own on DH Apple, using its APP store. Give to take a massive cut of revenue from APP developers. Okay, So if we look at this is political theater at the risk of being a little cynical here any outstanding performances today, either from the CEOs or from members of Congress. You know, I don't really want Oh, deemed the senators and representatives actions worthwhile. They wasted so much of their time and could have gotten real answers for the American people. So they don't really deserve to be. Ah, applauded for grandstanding. I do think that some of the major points Included the reveal that there were emails showing that Mark's October talked about you buying instagram as a way to take out a major competitors to neutralize the competitive threat, and that could Beats of the reopening of the case about whether the instagram the acquisition by Facebook for a $1,000,000,000 should have been allowed on whether Facebook and Instagram should be broken apart. If you handicap things. Which of the should one of these big companies be disassembled into little pieces? What do you think Which company would be the most likely Google's businesses range the widest span of different areas. Amazon is by far the most powerful. I think in the U. S economy right now, But Facebook is certainly the one with the most political. Will they get the most questioning the most iron from the public. And so I think that they're the biggest political football for representatives to kick If they can break up Facebook. They can say that they were a champion to their people, even though it might not solve a major problem of Facebook because its scale actually helps it to prevent foreign election interference in some of the other problem. So it's hard to say which will have the most regulation levied upon it, But we're definitely seeing more and more political will to do something against companies. And that's tech expert Josh Constantine, a venture capitalist with SIGNAL Fire. Fire.

Federal officers on standby in Seattle

"King County executive doubt Constantine is confirming federal officials are ramping up activity in Seattle. He says he's received information that a federal government plane landed at Boeing Field tonight with more than it doesn't personnel onboard cameras. Joel Marino's live with Homeland Security's latest preparations for the city, Joel Mary. We're being told that these tactical teams are in place just in case now. Other agents may have already been stationed here, and they could be quickly reassigned. Tio Protect federal property or possibly address protest activity. Seattle may not see federal officers taking up positions the same way as they have in Portland. But they are here and they are ready to go. Both the D. H S and D. O. J have Tactical teams that they sent around the country for various operations. Retired FBI agent David Gomez says it's routine for homeland security to redeploy forces is needed. But if they did, that wouldn't necessarily be unusual and it wouldn't necessarily mean that they were targeting protesters up on Capitol Hill. Seattle Mayor Jenny Dirk and says she spoke with the secretary of Homeland Security and was told VHS has no plans and sees no need to send federal forces to Seattle. He committed to notifying chief Carmen Best and myself should that change. However, Homeland Security does plan to safeguard several federal properties in downtown Seattle and the mayor has been told that VHS now says they have a limited number of agents in the area on standby to protect federal buildings if they said Tactical units here, and those units maintain a low profile. That's one thing but once they become visible They're going to provoke the the more violent segments of the protesters. Tonight, the mayor says. If federal forces do intervene, she will do everything she can in her power to limit their actions

"It's really fun to just to not have to pull that a day. She did enjoy going dark. It was it was a blast to get to do something a little darker little bit a little bit more. Cd It's not everybody has the dark side of themselves. You know. Mr Rogers had a dark side. I'm sure he did. We never thought but I'm sure it was there you know and to not feel like not only to not feel like it's wrong but to give yourself space that the more you allow it to live the more right it is. I mean there's no better freedom than that it's really exciting Bush restriction. I would do this again every day of the week twice on Tuesday it was so much. Fun I think you're GONNA see some. There are some story points that you know the Flesh Angela. An interesting way. It'd be really fun to do again. You're saying that when you're playing that type of character you don't have you don't have the restrictions of wonder so you can really go as far as until literally voice director. Wait a minute exactly. Well and the really fun thing about Angeles especially is she's in Canon but in such a subtle way that I really got to be the first person to do it. And that doesn't happen very often You know I'm one of several people. Playing wonder woman right now. And I'm so lucky to be in that cohort but Angela. At this point is kind of mine which is cool. That doesn't happen very often. It's really and isn't that the thing we say about all villain characters is they don't know they're bad guys. You Know Angela. Has She carries all of these stories that you carries all of these these spirits of the history of her city with her and she is doing what she can to fight for those voices into stand up for the people that are that make up who she is and I think that that's true of any of us. If you had to stand up for your family if you had to fight for who they are like there is no end. That I wouldn't go to for for my family like some somebody to to threaten my kid or you could see dark real fast. You could see you can see something. Something dark really quickly. And and that's all she is she. She's she's fighting for what matters to her. It might not be as valuable to other off but to get to open. That door is really fun. Also I look really really good in a Rodrick. Voicing Chaz is Damian. O.`Hare well the thing is I played. Constantine actually in the Justice League action Series so I think it was. It was an idea of the producers and the writers to do but a cross pollination than it would be quite sort of only if I came over and played his friend in this Unwritten the script. It's there's a wonderful relationship between the two of them basically so they haven't seen each other in twenty years. Because of this terrible incident that happened in new Newcastle which no one talks about but we that gets revealed throughout the movie on you can actually say where they haven't spoken to each other but chas is daughter is in trouble. She's in a coma at the start of the move in given too much away And he goes to John. He smells dark. Magic is involved and so he goes to John and sin for help and that's sort of last resort but there's a great relationship there. It's like when you have a friend that you haven't seen in years you know and you sit down and it's like you saw them just the day before there's instant connection again but there's a nice. There's a wonderful same. When they first made on the setting an diner or something I think it is and they're just speaking to each other on because it's a ninety minute movie. We actually played it. If it's like a live action sorta thing he can sort of take your time with it on and take the press in it and because you're given that scope in the ninety minutes because in the twelve minutes sort of you know J. J. l. a. The Justice League. That's more of a lighter touch. You know there's a certain be kept up this place like a movie but there's a relationship between the and Charles There's a lot of sort of Baden Eisenbach. Fourth and Charles. Constantine lovingly refers to China's a north head most of the Times which is a wonderful English term of endearment. Think you call the packer head over here. So but it said with love on finding the right accent of her play. Constantine the jail a with a sort of like copy sort of thing even though he's he's only skies but a court mott's from well from wheels and he plays with car accident on a Cardiff has touches Liverpool on it. You know anyway But I played Him London basically and my head. He moved from dime to London when he was about. Eight or nine years of is well. It's like myself you know. I'm Australian. Obviously what about researching well to know what I think and then everything? Id do even if it's live action. It comes from the writing you know. Everything comes from the writing on the writing on this. I think is so good that everything is on the pace. You don't need to do a hell of a lot around it. You know the box story. Everything is there. So it's a moderate going in on trying to make us believable As possible I'm not screwing up. He was impressed. This was close to the comics. Apparently this is closer to the to the comics. You know because jam. Obviously you know. That's that is his source material that he's taking from And as I said it's there from the first moment they meet each other on page. This is the opening page when he goes into that was on us has been on the CW yet when he made some is is at the institution that the start was. Yeah so you can see relationship there. I mean it's it's light than at an it's loving and it's brotherly but yet there's a native between them you know so everything's immediately there on the page so said it's only it's only a moderate trying to play that and then luckily enough when I was doing it. Although it's great having sorta unsolvable and be in the room as actors together a lot of times that's just not possible because of different scheduling and stuff. You know but I would have mott's voice ear or he would have mom and he's in London and we can just play truthful as possible and then we had a great Voice director West least fantastic And he would just measure the temperature of the same the mixture. We're not one of us isn't coming into hot or both the same sort of paid so script on you know when you're working with other actors that are from to us fantastic asthma and it's just a gift on when the writings is good but haven't seen the whole thing myself yesterday for the First Time. I can't believe the stuff has got away Western. This like it's suit dark and there's things that I actually had the rewind the few times last night really gonNA show this. These things are coming from which office? Yeah being oriented for a reason. It's a half so being at it is dark What is relatable to the audience? Chaz for the audience is the actual audience. You know he's the every month even though He grew up with Constantine on his seen. This magic Iran when he walks into these situations when he's confronted by these days and the sort of pig like creatures to him that his first time there's revelations needs very much our way into the story you know of course with his wife and daughter. There's the he brings the sort of human element to it as well and the emotional under his relationship with Constantinos. Tina's well because it's growing sorta reality and old friends. I think that's when it gets is fantastic. All these dolls Damon start worrying about the place. Squelching People's heads and everything. It's actually rooted in such a nice and grind the police and reality that you can go as far as you want without you know. He likes the animation media on And for this I have such respect for this medium and for the for the artwork and everything that I'm not actually watching myself listening to my own voice on it because a lot of the times. This is the first time I've seen the animation you know so I'm just stunned by what these guys have gone the whole son skip and the and the on that then the world if created you know just so glad to be part of it was the Because it is our rating was the dialogue. Could it be a little bit more colorful? It is very colorful exciting. Could be. That's true that's true. Yeah there's not too many. Golly Gosh is or Gordon or Gordon benefits in this. You know it's it's full. It's full-on on its agree show and it'll be it'll be worth a watch special. Thanks to Gary Mirror now in New York comic con. Constantine city of Demons is available on Blu Ray and DVD. Once again it is rated R. So I would recommend not showing US two small kids. If you get the Combo pack you can get the digital download.

"With that as much as you could get away with. Not skied away. Yes this is an R. rated feature. Initially we weren't told that we would get an R rating I could have played it with the script that could have been a PG thirteen easily. I told group. Let's go as far as we could go. And see if Warner Brothers is going to hold this back and I was waiting as we got to certain places like all right this way. They're gonNA come back at so and then ultimately I guess they weren't telling us they wanted an r rating. They were happy to get it and they took it so so we weren't told that point that we were in are rated Phil was it was an unsaid but I just assume all right I'm gonNA throw everything in the kitchen sink at this and see what happens. So they didn't. They didn't flinch much except for the sex. Then they said it was. Maybe two many comps gone something. Is this the Constantine story you wanted to tell this one because it's pretty much Arjun Storm? It's where he basically screwed up and that's why he became what he became. You know why he's insulin to itself light became a heavy smoker and shrink. It's because he has to live with the results all choice for what happened back in new Kassir so that was always considered his his basic origin. Story I mean before that he had he had a magic skills he was born with and he was learning skills to some and open up You know the voids. But he wasn't he wasn't as as advanced at it as when he opened this one up he was to copy about it and he brought on certain amount of hell to the world. You really shouldn't have been paying the consequences. So that's pretty much. What makes ultimate? Constantine is a throwback hero of sorts. Yeah that that is. It's the anti hero practically you know all over again. The Classic Anti Hero. Obviously a cocky bastard when he was younger and he was at that. You know him in Chad with do strange chassis strings. Things about Eventually as it costs to and he knows it you know as an adult. It's one he's been living with and that's why has his own troubles. But it's chaz coming back into the story after. Eighteen years reminds of that what happened. You have to make so and ultimately when you guys get to the end. He makes it right but he doesn't. It's Oh yeah it's not exactly all rosy but there are consequences to his actions that we are doing more adult you know true rattle to instead of just basic sex and violence court story. It's true and to the heart you know. Did it help that. The joker story that was done title Jones was done. I as an R. rated. So he didn't have that pressure to do it. It's like okay mic. Done it so we can do. I think we're living in the ether. That's great luckily they did it. I said we didn't get all the the stops talented. Rachel Kinsey Voices Angela. The the best part about working in animation in general and as a voice actor is the incredible freedom. It's that you can slay so much more than what you seem to be on the surface. It's whatever you can truthfully embody it's whatever you can build so I get to be incredibly lucky and I get to play wonder woman and I also get to play. The Demon of this city of Los Angeles and Mogi story has been out so I. I was absurdly ridiculously pregnant. Well working on this movie and is you don't usually get to play sex demon when you're pregnant but guess what an animation you do and it's it's really freeing and it's really rewarding to to walk into something going you know what. I'm the best person for this job and just doing it and not feeling like they're judging you for your haircut does Nice. Did you see her before you did? Which is going to look like. I did not get to see what Angela looks like before I record but when we came back A few months later to do agr to fill in a bunch of things. I did get to see her and I was like Oh. She's very sexy. Oh my that is quite the outfit. Because it's described in the script but then I saw and it was like. Yeah all right. There's a lot of action going on there. She enjoys working in both the light and dark. The funny thing is I know this is just avoiding it but like the funding is to not have to pay to get to play both sides of that coin like especially because working Working as wonder woman for Justice League action we are specifically doing a show for younger crowd. That's a little bit lighthearted that gets right into the action. We don't really have any sex and violence in that world and so getting to come over with the people that I come to know so well over there and work with them again on something completely opposite where there is nothing. That's too dark there is nothing. That's too sexy. There is nothing. That's too violent that that there's a truth to that too And getting to do both of those feels like getting to tell a whole story in a way but also have a baby girl so if I had to choose I gotta go kid appropriate for a couple of years right like she can't watch this for like eighteen years. You know how. How do you play someone? You haven't seen yeah. That's a great question because we know very often animation. We know so little going in. You only have. What's on the page and you don't have you don't have the world you don't have the circumstances you don't have the look And the the thing about it. Is You get to fill all that in with your imagination? So what's exciting is whatever you might think of what you hear when I speak might've been completely different than what I was thinking of. But my imagination fleshed out that world for me and the artists came in and they filled out the world. And then you get to see those two things married together so we all get to have the experience. That's the richest for each of us and for me that starts with getting to be uncensored beginning and I get to just keep expanding on what that imagination might be And every once in a while I see the art deco thinking not what? I've not what I imagined. But Okay it works and sometimes exactly. That's precisely what I what I was imagining. It's exciting to get to to fill those gaps contrast between working in an ensemble voice cast or by yourself animation. The trick with animation. And I I was very lucky because my very first cartoon on Justice League action we had most of us in the room of the time so I got super lucky that I got to learn a lot about making cartoons with other actors in the room when it comes to this where I had to do essentially all of my reporting by myself I mean the Nice thing is Matt has such a history now is constantine I can. I can imagine what choices he might make But again it comes down to that deep rich imagination and the fun part is in the end. I get to perform with whomever I choose. Because I get to create that person in my head I get to create what I'm responding to. And then the other person also does that an amazing editors put it together and as far as anyone knows we were all in this world together at the same time but in a way I kinda got to play. Constantine too because we got to do this team together but it was all happening in my head. Did you find her voice? Did you go in without any kind of preconceived idea? Funding is West. We're talking Going into this and he said you know all of those sounds that we can't use on wonder women you can use all of them here I tend to have kind of a deeper warmer voice and a lot of times with my superheroes in super soldiers and those kind of things. I can't let it land in this place. But with Angela she can be there and and have that warmth and have that kind of growl the whole time and I was like this is just. It's fun.

"Kinda grab the essence of the character and stay true to that whatever the media may be. I think there's really a jump with what you're talking about when you go to live action just with comics in general you know you can get away with things in common and even in animation when you've got buildings falling and cars flying through the air and and pedestrians getting crushed. You can get away with that because the anime even the animation. There's there's a step back from reality as soon as you have real actors and real people remember years ago. I was the second Spiderman movie came out and Peter and Mary Jane around this restaurant and Doctor Octopus hurls his car through the window and I know there's a bunch of people sitting back there and I know they just got crushed to death you know and you don't think about that in Congress and when you go to live action it all becomes much more real and you have to be. I think there are three. You have to really be careful. Because it could become distasteful he speculates. Constantine faces daily has ever been store over the years where he was finally pushed so far that he just gave it up. They must have been at some point. I if you know if you take a step back and you think about what this guy is doing and always doing. There's gotTa be a point when you face that much darkness that consistently where you're going to be broken you know and have to walk away in a weird way. I think of like professions like doctors or nurses or People. That work with hospice. Where you're dealing with real illness and death on a daily basis at a certain point you overload and you have to walk away and he sort of like a doctor of the occult in a way I would think at some point. That'd be a great story though really to push them push him to that point and this story t you'll see by the and takes them to an emotional point that I don't think he's ever been to before and it's it's not a fun place for him. Is he looking for some form of redemption. I don't know if I believe that. And and he's always in the end fighting on the side of the light for whatever reason he twisted around and explains it and still tries to be the biggest bastard on the block. Whatever it is he makes a choice time and again to be to work on the side of the light so that says something about what's lying underneath that character. You know weirdly on a big bills fan so when I was reading this this thinking Matt Ryan. I kept thinking about John Lennon. Both Liverpool both really hard edged tough. It could be really nasty. And underneath that total idealists you know and and with real soft and I thought about that with constantly because there serious. He's got a real real heart. Heart is but he would not be doing what he's doing if there was something else going with him and in this story of particular. It's so much about that relationship with. Chas. Who's you know this? One person in his life that he really trusts and loves that he's got to go to the Mat for he will go into matinee. There's a fun for you know. And that's why I like this particular story because In the graphic novels graphic novel It's called all his engines seven use as a template but emotionally. It didn't go to those places that we get to go to the story and that was important to me and said by the worked on it was to really drill deep into his character into his heart and the soul is mine and open them up a little. Bit More and see those other layers. Is He a fun character to any character that it has kind of internal tension where there's you know there one thing but there another and there's constant tension between the two mix it really really interesting was After doing Justice League dark the did seem a natural way to go to have constantly Jones because he was front and Center and Justice League right. But you know Having written you know team books are a different thing and teams stories and he was front and center. But it was still I guess. Justice League dark still had more of the feel of a big fund. Dc adventure in that way and this one we got to be really true to the comics and the Constantina from the comics and really go deep and really go dark in a way that you just dark. Didn't which was you know with great for what on its own? But this is a whole different tone in a whole different flavor. The CHAZ Constantine relationship is to keyed has felt the the John Chaz friendship and their tensions or are the the emotional bedrock of the whole story. You know In the graphic novel it was chances granddaughter and I thought it would have more emotional immediacy if it if it was Chaz daughter and also that made them a little bit younger as well because then if Chesa grandfather then that means John's old enough to be a grandfather to so their their emotional bond is what kicks story off and again without giving anything away when you get to the end of the story and what happens at the end. It's all about the two of them. It's all about the two of them and and you know you have the pyrotechnics and the magic and the bolts explosions. But if you don't have a real great emotion story at the poor you don't have any. There's more Constantine city of Demons sci-fi talk so stick around Rooker signed. Talk enjoy yourselves. Producing IS BUTCH. Lukic talks about to genesis of the project. We got him script. We were told from that point on before you even start anything. Break it down to five minute episodes With that it was finding in between the episodes. How can we break it up? So we have slightly at Clifford for the next one. And whatever didn't work we pulled out and use. That's what's in the thirty twenty five minute material. We have now in the blue but it's important stuff it was you know it isn't just actually enhances the characters the story. It's just for five minutes stuff. Could we live without it if we were able to make these Ten episodes vitamins. And I think most of it works just wanted to might not. This is a character the just going. I think it's DC and water brought us together. They realized well they actually do have a character regardless of that. Tv show not going. Another season obviously has a lot of fans so for them to just leave it alone. There and you know would wouldn't have worked so I think they weren't GonNa do a second season. This was their other option. At least keep it going somehow as a standalone if we can do successfully animation. Then that's a win situation for them and see the way. I'm hoping they do live action season again. You know it'd be great. I hope they do both if this does well. They might think about it again. So we'll see. He has a long relationship with his character. You know I've read him since swamp he was in swamp. Swamping when Alamo Roden and you got the characterized away can't help and he's he's lovable re regardless of being miserable. Sod is great you know. And he's guided of seed. See at the end of the bar wants a while. Obviously there's something going on there and you WanNa get with fight. But he's got a certain charm about it know. I know the smoking thing. It's all rotten now. We don't know about the smoke. I gave up yours ago though. This is a really neat about this. Dc animation's going into they did it with justice league dirt just the Derek. Now this grant entering the horror realm a little panetta. And that's a place that you guys are. Don't go into. Yeah and this was my chance. Doug Murphy might director. We both set to ourselves. Look W we're going to do this. We're GONNA make a horror film. I'm not looking at it as like some kind of Harry Potter for about the something. We're doing straight horror. Which means blood. Or you know what dismemberment all other kinds of crap so I had sweet? I wasn't digging. A supernatural is much. That's in that's already built in because of what the you know what he does but I feel it's true that like at eighty nine hundred. Fill and go.

"High welcomed. The sci-fi to Constantine city of Demons is an animated movie once again with Matt Ryan is a famous comic demon. Hunter Your Comic Con. I have audio from the roundings. Now Matt Ryan Wasn't there. He was actually shooting legends tomorrow which he is now. A regular is constantly but from the tables of Justice League Dark. He comments on plane constantly. I mean look I like I love the car to so much and I understood that I felt that that was so there is so much more to explore with had but with an assault with a character like this know. I just feel lucky enough to have got to play to play him. You know who have goes on to play him you know. We'll be very lucky to show. I don't think you can kind of take ownership of such a character like that. You know what I mean. It's like it's like Batman you caught in that way so many different people play him but I certainly like kind of throughout my journey with him. Fallen in love with the love and hate relationship as you can imagine kind of Yeah and just kind of get to play him again and put on the kind of you know the metaphorical trenchcoat where those boost but I was thinking about taking in a trench coat with me too. Wet under the. Yeah no great to just exploded got mine and I feel lucky and blessed to kind of to to you know had a chance to to play running. I is character designer. Par Excellence Phil Barrage about the look for. Constantine for this animated feature dot characters so well described from the get-go with His original look you know and it's not something that needs to be updated. Its archetype or like you know sort of charming roguish disheveled rogue character. Some things you know you don't if it ain't broke kind of thing so he he's always been he's one of those characters were it's it's almost a one from what is on a comic book page Which is why. I think you know with Matt Ryan's portrayal in the live action stuff. I mean they nailed it And so I didn't feel like I needed to take any liberties or any particular creative license. I you know I've used part of. My job is taking the work of other creators other artists and interpreting it or updating it for You know different context or different narrative. And that's fun and I enjoy that but I also I don't do it just for the sake of doing it. Always do it with a purpose and with this characters. There's no need here. He is on the visual style for. Constantine just a matter of the guys that did the TV show the guy that didn't live action. They looked at all the source material that I would look at for a and they felt imagine they felt the same way. Like this totally is some stuff in comics is. There's a there's a range some stuff doesn't work for live action right and you know you have to. You have to take liberties to put it into a new medium but this is a duty and a trench coat. You know what I mean. So it's like you don't have to change that you know if you were if you were to set him in a different time period or something like that but it's kind of a classic like you know look so does it. It's something that's you know. Been seemed contemporary. Whether it's from now or thirty years ago when the character was created. And you could there's such a new ish aspect to it it could even be from fifty years before that Or in the future like bladerunner but I guess later on the original bladerunner it'll be like now or whatever anyway But Yeah it's it's you know I didn't so I don't try to do a one-to-one unless I have to like A. Let's say an actor right like I didn't look like I had matt set photos but I wasn't trying to draw his face per se. You know what I mean and In in fact when we introduce the character in Justice League dark it wasn't necessarily part of that. Cw Universe So then but then it was just he was. He was our voice talent and he was doing so we it just made total sense to keep it consistent. Yes Fun man. It's fun to draw that character and characters like that because I do a lot of Capes entites and I think it's fun to do characters that are more grounded in their surface presentation but then we can explore the fantastic because the world lends itself to that and when we originally did Justice League dark I drew him with a Cigarette. Now and then but then because it was initially. Pg thirteen they made us take the cigarette And get rid of any kind of like smoking related component but then we finally got the R. Rating. He comments on working on those monster stylistically. I don't think they're necessarily needs to be pushed. Because he's a character that needs to look like a real person where you push in the monsters demons the fantastic components and then if you contrast that and balance it against like grounded believable normal then you have a dynamic range if everything is pushed like if the look of is pushed then you got nowhere to go with the monsters you know what I mean. You got nowhere to go with the supernatural. So you need the anchor for the audience to like frame in a row. The stakes are higher. And you believe that you know what I mean. So I don't feel I feel like the style that I was doing for the other stuff. It has a range like I can push fantastic characters and keep the normal the like regular human types albeit magical. But you know there's nothing about his. Our appearance should say that now. Is there a reference going for these monsters? It's absolutely more fun working on the monsters. Because there's there's less restrictions but it requires more disciplined to do stuff. That's believable like. I always tell young artists. Anybody can draw a robot or an injury but if you can make a bus driver interesting then you're really good you know what I mean And so to me. It's like if I didn't have the discipline or if I didn't realize like that that's how I earned my monster points. You know what I'm saying like I gotTa Make John Real. I gotTa Make Clark Kent Real. I gotTa make all these like sort of the grounded. Aspect of the world has to be believable and and it has to be compelling you know great artists can take something incredibly mundane and and it'll be the most amazing thing you've ever seen like you know you think about like. I LIKE ALEX. Toth or job you some Could draw dude sitting in a chair. Smoking a cigarette. And it's the best thing that you've ever seen anybody can draw like the fantastic stuff. So how far could you push them? Irs Sky's the limit. Yeah you can do anything you know. Tentacles is you know Demonic relations push. It's part of the reason why villains are more fun to work on in some ways than heroes it but it's fun isn't the right word. It's just requires more disciplined to do the other thing which is always like the the it causes you to work harder but if you got you know villains can be so many varied silhouettes and you know what I mean there. There's no limit to your imagination about because they can be anything. There's no wrong way. I'm trying to remember back when we first created the model back. It's been a while but it was just about trying to create the most nightmarish. You know ghastly you. Sort of look like almost love. Crafty in you know adding elements like I think we. We just had crazy components that we We almost created a little vocabulary like there was a dude with like a monster with an open mouth and he had like a brain inside the mouth. You know what I mean. It was weird. We're just trying to go weird with it. You know and and not necessarily always like something that no one seemed before but if you just go for some of the more darker components of what might be in your subconscious. You're gonNA find something but yeah. There wasn't a specific direction unless it was based on a specific cultural reference. Like we have like you know certain ghosts or entities that are from certain specific cultures and then in those cases. Then you look at that image credit your I. I recently saw Superman shoop. Yeah and you're doomed. Jay was thank you. Thanks so much. That was one. I'd say one of the top five told him yeah. I came together Nice. That Third Act was bananas. Oh my God yeah. The fight was out of control. Wow Yeah.

Keeping Your Dream Alive with Drew Holcomb

"Today or conversation is with music city icon drew holcomb. And you may remember that. We talked to drew's manager Paul Steal a few weeks ago. But here's the thing you need to know about drew. He absolutely refuses to be limited by other people's labels yes? He's a killer singer and songwriter. And believe me you're GONNA WANNA listen to the end of this episode. But he's used that foundation of singing and songwriting to lay a platform for becoming an entrepreneur. An investor a business owner. The guys creative he's disciplined. He's an absolute anomaly. But all of these different roles and qualities they've come together to make for a pretty remarkable and outrageous life but as you will hear his path toward becoming one of Americana Music Most beloved and authentic figures. It was one that actually started over twenty years ago and it was birthed out of a tragedy. I played music all throughout high school. I was your classic like Gout. The Guitar Planning Life and Learning Songs and having fun just with friends. I didn't write a song until I was a junior in college. I went to a personal tragedy the summer after my junior year of high school at a younger brother special needs who passed away very unexpectedly. I was actually out of the country and music was sort of thing. Kinda got me through it so really for me. Music was this personal sort of healing anchor. Anchor exactly I've no thoughts of doing it professionally especially talented at that time. I don't think so. No no not really I mean I was. I was fine You know I always had a very sort of ernest. Hard-working like plow through it. Sort of ethic involved in scouts and was in the student body organization. And all the things you know at school. I Love School. I always student so I went to school to college with the intent of going to graduate school to study. History on my goal is to write books and be a history professor so that was the dream now somewhere along the way. My junior decided to go study abroad and I studied in Edinburgh Scotland and I didn't really know anybody so I took my guitar with me. You know that was like my main hobby was playing guitar and I just started writing songs like at night. I'd finish my work or whatever three roommates. A Frenchman Franck Thomas the German Dave the Canadian and drew the American. That sounds like the makings of a killer ban. Yes that's right court. What are you studying in? Scotland studying church history so studying sort of like a variety of classes but Studying sort of fifteenth and Sixteenth Century Scotland. Studying the early sort of early Roman church so sort of. Constantine through you know the the break-up of the Roman Empire so just like nerdy stuck just had your guitar with you the whole yet. I wasn't writing songs about any of that stuff. I mean it was informing you know in a way but now I just started writing songs and really. It was diving into that pain because what I knew I was GONNA do. I started writing songs because my senior project at. Ut was an oral history about my brother. So I was interviewing fifty to eighty people. Nurses doctors friends teachers cousins. Who grew up around him in his life. And I was trying to figure out why this like kid. With Spina Bifida made such an impact when he his funeral was like twenty five hundred on my word so I was just personally curious and also just thought it was a great way to sort of put this history stuff to work to do this oral history and so part of that was started writing songs about that. Sorta as a sideline and extending come home from Scotland and start my senior year. My friends start playing songs for my friends. They're like Ayman is a pretty good. You should maybe give this a go so I started looking some gigs in Knoxville. Like at bars and I'd play covers and originals. Invite my friends out and this mentor of mine. Basically told me so. Hey man graduate. School can wait a year to like. It's not going anywhere much to take a break. Do this music thing get a job. See what happens. And that was in the fall. Two Thousand and three and here we are in two thousand twenty. Golly that's crazy so when you started doing it and you were playing in those bars. You couldn't have been making much planning those bars. No it's probably pretty scrappy beginnings for a while. I would assume yeah really four or five years of absolute scrap absolute scrap. Was that whole time where you think to yourself. This is what I want to do with the rest of my life or were you just filling time. During that season I was enjoying sort of the process of seeing the country of convincing by then friend to date me and Mary me I was enjoying the freedom I really found a lot of freedom and being my own boss that was like also and I was like well. That's pretty cool. And then also the same time I was sort of looking at the writing on the wall of the other dream going man. It's like really hard to get a real decent job at university especially as sort of a you know another southern white male just like there's a lot of those PhD's in history saturated market. So I just honestly the part of it I was really loving the business and I was finding satisfaction in putting together the band and the recording process and learning I was growing. I felt like you know all these things. I didn't understand about music. I mean as a kid you get a record and you think Oh. These people just got no room. They've set up. Some microphones push record. And that's what you hear and then you realize that. Oh It's actually this incredibly long and arduous process but very satisfying process and so I found myself enjoying it and just kept going based on my dad. You know I'm just GonNa keep doing this until it stops growing and it didn't. You're still. Here is your idol dip. It was your dad. Supportive or your parents supportive as you were kind of pursuing this dream very supportive. My Dad always jokes. He says he has all these friends that tell him like. Why did you let drew do this? And he's like I let drew do anything you know. He's twenty one years. Old graduated from College Emmy debt which was Nice Ozone. Scholarship makes a big difference in your twenty two years old about. Can you pursue this dream? Well I have all this debt and I gotta get a certain amount of money job or can I like try to do something independently with it of hamstrings you? So I didn't have any deaths and my dad basically told me like. Hey Man if you're gonNa work hard at this your mom and I are in your corner like let's go for it and actually took me guitar shop and bought me like the nicest guitar he could afford and said like this is our send you on your way thing you know. Wow so very supportive stuff had other people say like I wanted your parents. Let you do this crazy thing. Let me amount of adult. Yeah that's right. You don't have to have your parents permission but it sure helps. Psychologically I think to have people that believe in you that in your corner day deal but also. They weren't covering like they weren't paying for you to do they work. They work funding your dream. But they were supporting your. Yeah but I gave me alone ten grand and make my first record but it was expected to be paid back. And did you pay of course? I figured you're probably not still in the payment plan. No I read this in. I think it was rolling stone. That wrote it. It said while working at a Memphis studio in the early two thousands holcomb started playing small bars on weekends and eventually found himself zigzagging across the south in old Volvo Wagon and putting nearly three hundred thousand miles on the car and five years first of all. Is that true very true? John Actually totaled at around two hundred and forty thousand miles and took it around mechanic and he he made it drivable not put another ninety thousand miles on it. That's insane you're going all over and then it says initially. He says he was barely making ends. Meet playing at the most random coffee houses and community college. Lunch hours anywhere. That would give me a little scratch to play my songs. So that's a pretty accurate representation. Those first few yeah definitely and you know some of those college. Gigs were literally community colleges noon and they had these entertainment budgets that they had dispensed they bring you in. I'd bring my own P. A. And severe that set it up in the corner at start playing and literally a third of the room when they realized the somebody was sort of interrupting their lunch would put their headphones on to listen to their music. While I'm playing in the corner so you had to have pretty thick skin letting you know their checks cashed and that's how I was able to afford to keep going so it was complete survival. Did you have moments where you were just like? What am I doing at least two or three times an hour? When I was playing shows seriously though you know sometimes about halfway through that period is when I got married. Ellie was a schoolteacher and then after a year of teaching administered go on. The road means so really my last year of doing a lot of those colleges she was with me and that was so much more fun because we were just getting the car and just laugh at how terrible the experience was you know like. I said they were the gigs paid and that was the right around the time we started having some success with songs on TV and film. This song live forever came out which did really well On. Tv show. Parenthood was the season. Finale montage moment and we got paid enough to get a van and we started getting asked to go on tour other singer. Songwriters. Dave Barnes and Marvis. Are these sort of smaller. You Know Club. Things were also starting to really make real fans and then it became. Maybe I want to do this for the rest of my life. Real to that point it was like this is a big.

"Which also going to talk about in the expanded Figures of old Gods were replaced and re purposed into Christian symbolism. He built the Church of the Holy Apostles on the site of an Aphrodite Temple. So like we have some evidence of him like raising old gods to the ground and building things up on top of them were Christian. He abolished crucifixion because of Jesus but replaced it with hanging and he also made some changes that were like. Hey you can't When condemned criminals are put into the Coliseum? For like you know their stuff. You can't brand their faces. You can only brand of their feet. Because their face is God's image so it was like no It's clear that he had an interest in the well-being of the church but he was not baptized until right before he died This was kind of a trend at the time. People Thought Baptism was the thing that got your sense fully forgiven so they tried to wait as long as they could to beat so that they could be absolved from his much of their lives. Sin As possible. Interestingly enough when Constantine was finally baptized before he died he chose an Arian bishop from Eric. Like from the tradition of areas from the Council of Nice who was randomly a distant relative of his to perform the ritual which is really weird. Tonight my uneducated opinion on just listening to what you have put together here. This seems like a guy because the thing I was thinking about was like. What are we to make of a guy who is at one? Point like rubber-stamping Christianity but he's also like Not cozying up to other things but like accommodating if this feels like a guy to me who is kind of like. I don't really know what the thing is. I wanted to cover on my basic exact. Okay yes I think that is definitely true and I think knowing what we know about his love of soul sure. I think that he didn't really understand fully what he was doing or maybe he just didn't buy in all the way because nobody had a bracelet that was like read. Why like he didn't understand that. Lead with Golden Road. Yeah I was W W J D but that's an even better. He did that as a him reaching back to be like. Oh wait areas. I forgot about areas. I May to show him to even after the council and I see a it was like. Hey we're going to exile you and you're excommunicated and then like a few years later it was. Kinda like Wilma can creeped back in. Whatever it's fine but isn't it said it's telling that like you know baptism. I mean their denominations. Now that would tell you that you're not you don't you. Don't fully experience ovation. Unless you're about todd freight because I remember my friend. Heather was like she cried for me because I had not gotten. I got like fake saved when I was little and I saved again but not really again like I never say the first right at bad motives at eight better met his at fifteen and I but because again much better lateral but they were. They were focused. More at least but I heather. I remember her crying. I had not gotten baptized. And she's like what have you die on the way to school tomorrow? You'll go to hell and I was like that is very stressful room. Seven kicked in. I'm like Oh you can't be friends with Christ member but it's like this pressure on. Constantine to to know exactly and do exactly what it takes to be converted like think about what little he knew and understood what little everyone knew and understood. They hadn't even set up any sort of structure organization at all so there were no yowl or the fact that we still don't agree that. Protestants still don't even agree today. What like Salvation Required? It's kind of the more we're talking about the more actually have sympathy for form. Because it's a. He's a person came from the tradition of a pantheon like hundreds of Gods and now he's like he's wind that down but he's also like I wa. I Dunno I just WANNA be right here like I want. I want to be right here and I think you know when you think about like when Jesus has come like when you've got the gospels in the New Testament it's less like all this has gone it's just like how do we transition here to a realistic like bridging of the traditions. And it feels like that's trying to do here is like bridge traditions. Yes and I think he was also very committed to peace like he would frequently go to the bishops. Like you know the council and I see and be like a you guys gotta quit your infighting like he was he just. He wanted to make sure that his reign was secure and I think he was willing to do whatever it took for that to happen. Man Yeah so that is it for the bucs for this free episode but as always there are many more generally bucs included in the AD free episode Patriot supporters get in the Bible in seminary and this version of the gentle rebuke.

"Did we perfect? Now there's no Bible Bible story but I am proud of you. I'll take it as w thank you easy. It only took non seasons and episode. That was not based on the Bible Right. So let's talk about the edict of Milan. You guys talked about this. A little bit It's basically an agreement to be tolerant to all religions within the Roman Empire. It often gets confused with the edict of Thessalonica which was written and declared about sixty five years after the edict of Milan. And that was the thing that made Christianity the official religion of the Roman Empire And so there's a great quote. I'm that kind of gives you a good overview of what the edict of Milan was. It says quote when you see that. This has been granted to Christians by us. Your worship will know that we have also conceded to other religions the right of open and free observance of their worship for the sake of the peace of our time that each one may have the free opportunity to worship as he pleases. This regulation is made that we may not seem to detract from any dignity of any religion. How Progressive Right very progressive. You think this was like we need to be more progressive or do you think it was like this is a mess and I'm so tired of this. I was reading some really interesting. And we'll talk about this when we talk about Constantine's conversion but that he was very like into peace manned he doesn't want any infighting about this or that or he wants everyone to be chill so concentrated on Bingo Gal child divorce probably get along exactly so But that is that's the whole deal with the edict of more and I ask a follow up to. Would you accept edict of the low? Ika as I've said most of my life. Oh and knowing. It's not correct to be clear correcting. You have set a precedent here. They're never gonNA say things correctly and so much more fun to say so. I'm going to try to work that in the Lanka low NICA. Oh God I like it. I think you keep it. There's so much ambition. Ignorance not rebuked. Yeah I'm so. Let's talk about the mark of Constantine so you guys talked about this a little bit. It's historically thought at the mark that he put on all of his before his famous battle with Maxon she is Is a Cairo. Which is the Monogram of Christ formed by superimposing cheever's to capital letters of the Greek word? For Christ I'm we see a lot of this. It's called a cryptogram which is basically just Jesus's Monogram in churches today but by the year three fifty. The Cairo was on helmets of Roman soldiers on coins and medallions minted during Constantine's reign and then on Christian tombs and art so it kind of was like it started there and then it got like you know fully integrated into society so this was like a fraternity in Ohio is more like a fraternity or is it. Kinda like Airport codes like that. You see like this is how he recognizes the Jesus like Charlotte Lt. which is the first one. I hesitated even breathe. It was my fault I knew about that is surely knows they know better. They should change it so I was curious as to why Christians got persecuted. And what what? The deal was with that the deal with personal persecution interesting to me because we have this. If you grow evangelical you have this narrative of this time which is like Christians got eaten by lions in Coliseum. Like it was really I read Francine rivers. Yeah we all did well some of them and basically Christians are like real straight up Weirdos and they. I'm sorry saying they're asking for nothing you're asking I'm saying. They are so in. Not of as some popular racing would say That it really kind of unsettled. Everyone else had Roman society so they didn't do public festivals. They didn't do the colts in the Cultural Moors of sacrifice and temple worship and they were real grumpy about people doing those things so like Roman rights and religion the pagan suffices and all of that was really a huge part of just like daily life and Christians. Were not interested in it. Really set them apart as being kind of like weird They were seen as like not engaging and hating the human race Not Conforming to the pattern of this world to also Yeah hat tip to Paul And then rumors win around after that that Christians wanted to take down the Roman rule via black magic. And that they like incest and cannibalism so anti-clinton began persecuting Christians based on the guidance from the Oracle of Apollo he pulled down temples and burn scriptures. And then he's started taking away. A lot of their fundamental rights like their military ranks their ability to court and former Christian slaves who were freed they were like reince lyft. So a real tough. You know the really interesting thing here for me is like I think when you look at any religion in the early phase. It's like weird. It doesn't come like complete correct and everyone's like Oh. Yeah that's really true. I understand we're about so I can understand why people like What are you talking about? You're eating the body intriguing like this is weird and then I also kind of like how. They really just stubbornly outlasted. Everyone's intolerance of them. And like they were not gonNA engage. They weren't gonNA unplug. They were going to rebel and finally Rome. You know what you're it's just. We're all the thing. Whatever that will you stop lying? Can we stop to talk and initially it really is I'm not doing. I'm not gonNA like fake tans or fake us were. I'm not gonNA MIME A scene from a movie. And now what do we need to go to sleep every night? Watch TIC TAC see. I'm the one I'm on the fringe of Tick Tock. I haven't decided to follow talk like when I'm reading a postal. This is really funny thing. I'm like you will get the track you'll be converted. That's true So I wanted this is. I'm GONNA kind of nerd out a little bit about the Council of Nice Sia So it's probably Constantine's biggest contribution to Christianity That happened during the summer of three twenty five this was the first quote Unquote Worldwide Council. There was one other council the council Jerusalem before this but it was more localized and it included bishops and priests from Great Britain to India. Awhile so he like the most of the known world at that time Was there and how many people you think were there. Well that's okay so there were probably about two hundred and fifty two rally like main attendees. Wow and they could each bring five people. That's big yes so you could bring like chewed two priests and three deacons with you so it could get up to like eighteen hundred people but like several several historians counted and the the general vibe is like two fifty two three okay so So the council mainly dealt with whether Jesus was divine or created being it's squashed some beefs with bishops who were being heretical. They wrote the first part of the Nice in creed which is still used in churches today and they worried about when we would have Easter and then they did some church law so the main draw at the council was between everyone else and a guy named areas who basically said Jesus was created of nothing and because he was created he had a beginning. Everyone else led by Alexander of Alexandria and Athanasios Disagreed saying that Jesus was begotten of the father and has always been the reason this matters is because of Jesus was created by God he could not also be gotten which made his whole deal. No boy so is pretty big deal. Areas was outvoted by a landslide and none of his ideas made it into the creed. So when the bishops wrote the creed it gets worse for area so they included language that stood in direct opposition to areas. They called Jesus light from light. True God from True God begotten not made of one being with the father if you didn't endorse the creed. Constantine who like made a grand ceremonial interests wearing like entrance wearing purple and gold but he seated himself behind the bishops so like respect them he said you had to be exiled. If you didn't obey the cream you didn't like go for the creed areas and two of his guys did not sign the creed and they were exiled. Excommunicated everything areas wrote was burnt and destroyed. Day Mum in Yeah So. In addition to exiling and burning things The bishops did some work to establish about twenty church laws which included not limited to but included no self castration for clergy. Yeah no doubt that group was like those areas was into combined with. Oh you can't have young ladies live at Your House with you. Because that's look shady the original Billy Graham. So there was a there was a time when celibate priests and they weren't really priests and they weren't really nuns But they were. They were celebrate. They would live together in households together. Non-sexually a non Mary. I'm GONNA stop you. There just described too hot to handle another And so they were like. Hey you can't do that anymore. Because it makes you look bad. And then you can't make unethical or shady. Money deals so that bishops are people in leadership. Get extra really follow that one. Yeah sure ever ever so and then this was and then they didn't meet again For Twenty more years so this was kind of the founding one of the first organizational moments which is a really big deal anchor sanity. Yeah it's speaks to their actual you have to become an institution To grow and I think it's a it's a tribute to like them doing that to be able to grow like that gap for sure Okay so let's talk about the Sun God back on the Sun God. His name was soul invictus which means the unconquered son and he was the patron deity of soldiers. Which is why he was such a big deal to Constantine We know he was a big deal during Constantine's reign of his popularity last until at least the fifth century because Saint. Augustine went hard after adherence to the Sangatte's Colt When he was alive. Jamie mentioned money. And making Sunday a day of rest but also Constantine's triumphal arch was carefully positioned to align with the colossal statue of soul which used to be a statue of Nero by the coliseum than there were like. We're going to change US up. No More Niro. We're going to take off his little life. Basically yes yes is all Matt And so that Seoul formed the dominant background win seemed from the direction of the main approach toward the arch so he was big into soul like really liked him you again. I just think it's so interesting that something that we are so aggressive about like being. I just feel like Chick-fil-a Chal some of this episode and then self-reflection go. Do we have to be closed on? Sundays? Yeah Yeah Open I read. I like fat. Like our legacy of this podcast. Got To believe that happened. That was facing okay so I do WanNa talk about whether Constantine's conversion was authentic We we don't know because we can't charge him and that's not our job. Yeah Judge People. We can't well we can. It's just not like God gave it So we actually don't know in Helena was the catalyst for Constantine's faith or if he was the one who encouraged her to convert. We're actually talk about Helena more in the expanded rebuke for Apple Bench seminary students. But it's hard to say like a which came first. So after his victory over Maximus Constantine rededicated all the buildings to himself including Pagan temples and a structure called the basilica of messages. Where whatever however you say his name where. He erected a statue of himself holding military banner with the Cairo with the inscription by the sign. Constantine had freed Rome from the yoke of the tire allied. Like like if you if you had. A and like you erected a statue on your enemies property of you dunking on your enemy of that. So I thought about that all the time. I know I think I WANNA do that. Yeah sounds great so he also in in Constantinople. He housed a ton of Holy Relics..

In the street we had people their hands would be cut off. They would be tortured in front of people like this will happen in the sky came along. I'll be a little weird and stopped all that and like not only stopped it but turned it all around. Yeah so it's it's weird in that I in that respect is weird that this was necessary to take Christianity global for an ad when I think when we say that it's not like God couldn't do it if right but I think you know. God uses the tools in the toolbox. I think a lot of times and Constantine was it to him. The toolbox to do this like two or someone within the Roman empire was doing it but even more and you alluded to it. Cost him doing it and kind of weird way. Let's talk about the second aspect that is important to consider in. The wake of the story was the conversion was Constantine's acceptance of Christianity. Was it authentic was a real? Did it come from a true spiritual place? Well listen even with Roman emperors. That previous You were religious piety it was all related to your political power right so you being religious but at the time it was pagan right like it was worshiping. Gods like it was connected to your power that you had his people. Religion brings people together in a weird way and especially if religion is like oh to be naked and eat a lot and has sex with any we want. That sounds like a religion. You guys and I'm GonNa vote for that guy were and support and so it was. It was almost like you could look and go. Well maybe he did. I actually genuinely think he did have a chain like I do think he had a legitimate change. And on his deathbed he gets baptized. Like he specifically. He was on his way. He was trying to go to the Holy Land and his mother had been converted Helena and she was on her way to the Holy Land. I think he had been converted but not without. He would not have been converted if it had not benefited him as a leader. Sure yet I signed not and I think that both things can be independently true. Yeah at the same time you know and at the famous story and give it. He's kind of their sort of record especially on matters of Rome. His theory is that it was real and he says that Constantine was put in a special position because of the elevation of Constantinople. His Dad because He was basically an emperor of Rome that gave. Constantine the free scoped exercises virtues one of which was this acceptance of Christianity because of his mommy influences mom but also growing up seeing and Constantine has in the British portion of the Roman Empire. He Abided by those edicts. But he didn't really push them. It was more like wink. Wink nudge nudge. Like if the big guys are here I got gotTA lose but I if not allege slide. So Constantine kind of Internalized that kind of tolerance. So once he got in a position of power. It's like when you know you're seeing in high school when you your Parents House and you've got a dorm room. You're going to put stupid posters up because you got power. Now that's how you're GONNA do it. And that's what constantly doing it. He wrote a letter to the bishops. That were gathering for the Council Charleston. Three fourteen and he wrote he said that about how God doesn't allow people to wander in the shadows but reveals to them Salvation he said I quit. I have experienced this and others and in myself I walk not in the way of righteousness but the Almighty God he sits in the Court of Heaven granted what I did not deserve. I mean that's a beautiful. I mean like if like if you said that to me I'd be like that's a beautiful. Like reflection of God is how salvation works. Yeah it really is in. There's some there's some textual evidence that because the story of the dream It doesn't come out until after. Constantine is dead and I think it's a couple of different times and the more told the more Christian he and the story gets you know. So there's some revision history there but His pointed out that obviously Helena. There's a a pretty fine glossy. She probably was a Christian or sympathetic to Christians But also that constantly he named One of his daughters anesthesia. Which is a Christian name. And have you as you've laid out. Names are big deal too the Romans you don't just like fling went out like I don't know really what it means is pretty like the fact that you would name A. You're in a position of power in your name. A daughter A crucial name. That says something right. Yeah and like now. Did he have some problems that maybe he wasn't perfect? And who among us is right? I do like that He did his wife and his eldest son murder Accra. That doesn't feel very like you're not team mad. Not God like does not feel very God and again he continued to worship the sun. God because listen. I GET VITAMIN D. It's very tantalizing. Having Tan makes you look center I get it But he and he didn't really have any interest in he set himself. You know The struggle for death looseness must be free which was a comment on him. Making it an official kind of empire religion and so he was all about like listen. This is what I believe. But I'm not GonNa Force this on anybody because that's what went before us. Yes and I don't want to repeat that behavior and that feels really on Brampton especially if what you're talking about a guy. I think the expectation here in our in our idea of like conversion is there's one true God you convert in like you're all in on him. This is a guy who I think. He's primarily primarily motivated by tolerance so understanding that. I think he's like yeah. I like this God and that drink thing we had that was really great. Also my love. The Sun. God so I'm GonNa keep that to like nothing. Bad happened to me there so you I. I'm not saying like that's cool. I'm just saying I understand that. This is not an absolute sky. I think Diocletian was an absolutist guy so I think the influence And the unintended consequences that influences constants going to be more of A. Let's just live and let live and like have a good. How good and prior here and this politically benefits me. So I'm cool with letting it live. Yes you really did kind of say. This works as long as it does work. If anything had changed if any group of people have become more powerful or more equipped I think he would have turned on a dime. If the she's yes at the end of the day he was like Emperor Firs- Yeah Follower of Christ therefore down there okay. So why? Don't we do some superlatives for this episode Janey Grade? The pivot here was a ABC delivering compile. Gosh I'm going to actually give it a B plus the only reason I don't give it a is because he he makes it a little him manipulates Christianity a little bit or two on advantage plus he was an anti Semite. Don't love that yeah Visited too hard for really from like he pivoted in a great way for Christianity but also not integrate way for the way Christians interact with other people. That's true that's great and so But I mean you if you become a saint and the Orthodox Church and you were like worshipping Pagan Deities. Yeah that's a pretty good pivot does a pretty good pivot. I give it a a just not concentrate. As much as the pivot from were on the run we might be crucified upside down to suddenly like with guys. And we're running really impressed that it's pretty amazing That kind of turn on a dime Who is the key? Mvp of the story team to me. It's the people we don't talk about as much like not just us but anybody when they're talking about the history of this are the martyr's those were the stories you get a little bit of that From historians that will reference like very specific people. But mostly they're always talking about these leaders. These emperors these caesars. And it's such a disappointment because the people who were doing the heavy lifting like the people who really were in the army going i. I'm not gonNA sacrifice I believe in the when for them. The one true got I believe in like I just think those are the stories. I would be more interested in reading about just Constantine's and you know I read something really interesting. That talked about how the priority of the early church was to become a martyr. Because that was reality you were probably going to be killed for your faith. That's just how the world worked. And then after Constantine it turned into like like there there was no reason for anybody to be martyred and yeah so like. That's not the priority more. And that's when the monasteries developed. That's when the idea of retreating from life and just fixating and Meditating on God. That's when that became prioritize within that. That's just an interesting wrinkled like you're you have like A. I don't know a death conclusion to assume for yourself and then that's off the table now and now it's like now. What do you do with yourself? You know it's it was actually a really cut our hair in a bowl haircut and live in the woods just punish ourselves or I don't know not hot. It's weird Milo kimmy fee of the stories similar to you but I'M GONNA go with Helena. Just because she obviously was so influential and consistent steady to I don't know recognize the power structures of the time in no like what you obviously like can't be like super team Christian but just like be cool with them you know and like be tolerant of them in like honor what they're trying to honor and that was so influential to Constantine. Obviously that played a part in him being not only open to Christianity but enthusiastic and it says such a testament to her because she was cast aside for the power marriage right. So like Constantine's dad domes. Her goes for the power marriage and and not ends up that power marriage ends up benefiting every way possible rice and I liked that he was still so connected to his mother. Yeah yeah normally mothers in the Roman Empire. They're only good for like political being accused of poisoning and murdered. So it's a run for mom. It's good that. She stepped out of that stereotype. Okay so why? Don't we end up with someone who cares okay? So John Dahlberg Acton who is a Catholic historian from eighteen hundred he wants wrote a letter to an Anglican Bishop and it said power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts. Absolutely great men are almost always bad. Men Well Wisconsin Tina bad guy. Maybe probably maybe he did provide a huge jumping off point for Christianity in the world. But at what cost. I might argue that. Constantine muddied the face of the original early Christians the apostles Jesus Christ himself And seventeen year seventeen hundred years later. We're we're not yet fully recovered from it. We still let human leaders be a focus of our worship will still use religion as a weapon against those who don't agree with us whether in war or on facebook we twist the words of the Bible to fit our condemnation without considering the historical or cultural context of those very words. How do we get back to the teachings of Jesus without the burden of being right or being charged or deciding that the Sabbath is on Sunday or Christmas is on December twenty fifth? Well I think mark twelve gives us a hint verse Twenty Eight. It says one of the teachers religious law with standing there listening to the debate. He realized that Jesus had answered well so he asked of all the which is the most important. And Jesus replied the most important commandment is this. Listen of Israel the Lord our God is the One and only the word and you must love the Lord your God with your heart and all your soul and all your mind and all your strength and the second is equally important. Love your neighbor at yourself no other commandment is greater than these really good My Soa who cares it revolves around the thing. That can't really scape in the story. And it's how Christianity is presented like the every man every woman character in any movie. Your story like someone who's really talented but just hasn't got their break yet and this is where you really could talk me into. Comparison of how Constantine's like Bradley Cooper from a star is born Christina's like lady Gaga. Just needs a shot just long suffering prodigy just needs chance and for this story you know..

"That's milk the letter in honey nutrition on instagram. And now back to the show okay. So before the battle. Constantine was directed and this is this oracle count. Constantine was directed in a dream to cause the heavenly sign to be delineated on the shields of his soldiers into so proceed to battle. He did he had been commanded. He marked on their shields the letter x with a perpendicular line drawn through it and turn around thus at the top being the cipher of Christ. That's all caps. All CAPS HISTORICAL ACCOUNT HAVE SKIES CHRIST CAPS having to sign his troops Saddam's arms. The enemy's advance but without their emperor and the crossed the bridge their armies met and followed the exertions valor and firmly maintain their ground. In the meantime a sedition arose at Roman Maxim. Tia's was reviled as one who had abandoned all concerned for the safety of the Commonwealth and suddenly while he exhibited the cer- I don't know what that is games of the on the anniversary of his reign. The people cried out with one voice. Constantine cannot be overcome dismayed at this maximum has burst from the assembly and having some senators together ordered the sibylline books to be searched in them. It was found that on this. Is I guess. Kind of like a prophecy. Year like Macho Historical Mantra on the same day. The enemy of the Romans should perish led by this response to the hopes of victory. He went to the bridge in his rear was broken down at sight of that. The battlegroup hotter the hand of the Lord prevailed in the forces of Maxon t s were rounded. He fled towards the broken bridge but the multitude pressing on him. He was driven headlong into the Tiber. This destructive war being ended Constantine was acknowledged as emperor with great rejoicing by the Senate and the people of Rome. Did you get how he died by like hearing that by by reading that? Yeah or do you think we should explain that a little that he drowned in the river. I guess he tried to cross the Brooklyn Bridge which I don't know bad leader move. Which by the way that that bridge still exists today a coupon you can still see some of the. Yeah no so. He tries to cross he drowns. They fish his dead body on the river. Take him on the riverbank and decapitate him so everyone and then they take the head. And they're like getting spoiler. We won. We got him right. So here's the crazy part. So I the Circassian Games their circus games okay. So it's almost like a school circus fair. Sure that you have in the back. That's what it feels like to me. It may have been like Barnum Bailey. Fest we'll go. Yeah like they had a small and I like that. He's like having this fall festival and the people are like mad. They also want funnel cakes so they've shown up they're mad that he's abandoned them as a people but they're like a do love this con- Candy and that was a proven thing the emperor's employed when things were tough. They called it a bread and circus. Right that's the things hard funnel cake and Circus Carnival like base sort chanting. It the circus and he's like y'all how brave brave and I like that he's like let's go and that was the last time he lets go. And then it goes. It goes poorly so surely after this battle Constantine converts I'm going to say those non sarcastic. Air quotes in in air quotes. We'll talk about in a second dream with got listen drinks with God have a long history of having an impact on people say it's a pretty formative event so and then he issued the edict of Milan which I don't think is actually an edict but I think we'll get Aaron to discuss this more in the gentle rebuke portions so That's the story. Do you WanNa talk about like the big impact of you know just this and not just like what constantly the battle but more constantine a Roman emperor seeing Jesus putting a sign on the shield and kind of changing the way the Empire looks accuracy converts. You have to remember and he you gotta remember that remember. He was in that court So he probably saw firsthand a lot of Christians being persecuted and it was like once. You've got the maybe the hesitancy of like it's this right. That were like torturing. Only we're not torturing the people practicing in the Egyptian Colt or in these mysteries of the Orient like we're only getting mad at the Christian and he has that kind of history and you have a little experience with God where you go. Oh my one this thing because we did. This thing was a dream and he converts wholeheartedly sort of so. He was the first Roman ruler to openly not only tolerate and be like Christians are great but then he's like I'll tell you guys let's more churches. I'm going to help you build. More churches he commissioned new copies of the Bible to go to people all over Constantinople. He composes like a prayer for churches for troops to prey on when they go on their Campaigns he had all kinds of laws that he created for the practice of Christianity He abolished the penalty for Crucifixion And he he was like we need a sabbath side of this is a great idea and so he did a lot of things for Christianity he goes on to have the Council of Nice scene which we know was critical for kind of really saying no. Jesus is real. Yeah he was like for real for real which is crazy to think about that. We could say right now. Somebody who lived two hundred years ago right so who lived two hundred years ago like what years when you watch. Okay George Washington. We could say you guys. It's official George Washington Israel five to be like you have to really say even more like the their competing claims is like yeah he was real name is Jeff Washington and he was kind of sucking. No that one's not gonNA last this. Let's does right and Constantine. He's the second longest ruling ruler next to Augustus. As y'all remember Jesus like it's all connected right So he did a lot of really great things in terms of highlighting that Christianity was great. Am spreading the word about Christianity. However at the same time there were some weird things that happened in the season. We have some evidence that Constantine he's still hits a love to worship God like loved it a lot so much that at the council of Nicine. They're they're like how the Jews which he hated by the way. There's evidence like hand over fist. What are the things that I read that? He wrote Constantine announced it appeared an unworthy thing that in the celebration of the most holy Feast of Easter. We should follow the practice of the Jews who have been piously defiled their hands with enormous sin and are therefore deservedly afflicted with blindness of soul. Let us then have nothing? In common with the detestable Jewish crowd. So again Jesus was a Jew at the nineteen the council they decide you know what we are. GonNa have it a great idea you know? That's in the Bible that you should happen. We're not GONNA do it on Saturday like the Jews. We're going to do it on Sunday. I like the move because guess I still like that San God so much that when I put myself on money on the other side of the money will be the Sangatte like I love the signed. God it's an interesting. It's and it's a bigger conversation that we're intellectually capable of having but like I don't know that anyone can I mean we've read the scholars? They don't uniformly no like. How real was this political was this? I do think there's you know obviously a political aspect of it. I read somewhere. Where historically a lot of the Jews escaped some of those persecutions because they pay tax and the Christians did not pay tax so there was a lot of men like everything. They're the worst. They're like judging us. Because we have orgies. Orders are great but they don't WanNa do that nobody taxes. This is the worst but I think the really interesting part here is I think Constantine saw an opportunity for a burgeoning group of people who brought some good things to mix sharp. So there's a there's a great Opportunity to legitimize them but also it's hard not to look at this and not see like shark tank you have a startup. Religion like A. I want to call it a colt but like all religions colts right well. It appears to the outsider. That it's a call. Yeah so is this thing are some positives going? And then you have this guy this emperor come in and legitimize everything you're doing and suddenly all the things that were keeping back all the barriers they're gone and now you're given like you saying they get to build churches now like it's like these. They've had these like secret meetings. And now it's like no no build this big thing and it's going to be ornate any huge. That's incredible for like the the place where Chris Early Christianity because just three hundred years to this point. Jesus live and it's been uphill ever since now. They've got this guy like yeah. I'll good everything he's saying it. He's saying all good like all this good however you know what I want you know. Jesus he's the best We love him. I want to celebrate his birthday. I WANNA DO THE NATIVITY FEES. I would like to do it. On December twenty fifth. Because that's also the birthday the sun and I love the Sun. Your I love the Sun and I like that. There are things now that we practice and maybe take so seriously like the most seriously like we make starbucks take it seriously and it comes from a place of Lake. You guys is comes from garbage place but the Christians were willing to go. I mean I guess you gotTa give and take a little hundred percent right and I'm glad you brought that up because it's that you. This guy now has equity in your company Christianity. So it's like guess. What if he wants to celebrate it on December twenty fifth? I could like doing man a reason to and that's part of the give and take and I saw that Some Christians at the time. They observed that the social political recognition of Christianity. It obviously had its own costs. It increase the Church's growth rate. But to some it also decreased the collective purity so there was a lot of back and forth of life main back. We just ran things. This real real now we got to hang out with Jews. The suits up there. They're making us do stuff. And Evan December days and it sucks man so but I think for all intents and purposes this is to me post Jesus. This is the biggest event in history of the Church because it does formalize it legitimises this Going from a small religion in a region it because of the bigness of the Roman Empire. And it's not going to be around too much longer. It allows it to go global in a way that I don't think it ever could. Yeah 'cause he makes the official religion of Rome then builds constantinople which becomes the most powerful city in the world and its main religion is Christianity as well churches that still stand to the state that were built at the time. And if you don't think about it in terms of because I think we just have this vision when we're thinking about the early church and we just think oh it just did like missionaries and they just went places and they converted people and everything was fine and it was like Sally. There were some there. Were some real compromises. Made sure on about it makes me always think of like. I was a women's studies major and we always talk about feminism. And it's like it was always like well white women would always say but if we can get the vote. Yeah like when we get the vote. I we promised will help people of Color get the vote but it was like no. They were willing to sacrifice anything to get their thing. And it's like these Christians in this century. There were some of them who were like well. You have to be grateful for whatever you can get. Yeah Yeah and and we have to. I know this alliance like this is a place that was literally compared to the Anti Christ. You know a couple hundred years ago now. We're weird bedfellows here. But he's a good if he's got people who are literally walking around the Roman Empire who now are empowered who have status who have prestige because of their faith and literally their uncle or their sister or their parent.

"Jesus like he's pissed about this so he's pissed at severance in general but he's also pissed because he doesn't like policies so his guys and this was the thing in in the Roman Empire at this point in this specific area is a lot of times. It's just. It's not that anyone there was voting being done. It was just hate. Your guys are going to say you're the guy and then you're gonNA have to fight about it and if you win you're the guy isn't that just. How like isn't that? Actually how gangs work. It's kind of pretty much. I don't understand it's elegant Gang warfare in a in a lot of different ways. It is So he takes. He's like my guy said I'm the guy so I guess I'm the I'm the constitution. Were like we decide. Yeah no but we said if I like. Okay guess we gotta fight now so Maximilian he's recalled to the throne to help support his son And he together. They both defeat and kill several s Like snake from Harry Potter. That you refuse to acknowledge in three hundred and eight though. They got beef the father to son. Yes this is that they get in a fight they do. It does so he Maximilian seeks referee refuge with Constantine who had been maximize ally since. Maximilian married his daughter thought. So everyone's married there's Al- There's always is both Constantine's grandfather and his father in law. It's really complicated. So basically the father of Constantine's enemy goes over. Constantine side so That's where we're set here as we get into our store. You'RE GONNA talk about Christianity here in a second but that's sets kind of the players And I think it's important because maximum is gonna be presented and I know even cast as joe exotic kind of character. So He's obviously he's not the protagonist of the story. He's very much the tags what we're GONNA be talking about but it's important To realize it is because this isn't a biblical text. There is a war we're gonna read is going to highlight constantine yet not in a necessarily literal. This happened but he wrote the history of this. So we're going to be kind to him and we're going to be good to him in that retelling maxium his own right He's not really the brutal tyrant that he's made out to be. He actually was more about stopping the persecution of the Christians than Constantine was than anyone else was so to for it to be rewritten. That he's a bad guy. Brutal tyrant not one hundred percent true in history. This is true so going on and Christianity at the time. It's remember like you had the early church. And Christianity looked a certain way and then all this has to exist within the Roman empire and for long time. Most Roman emperors were very tolerant of Christians. It wasn't like they were like high fiving them or giving them special rights or making sure they had everything they needed but there wasn't a lot of persecution and a classic until like you mentioned Diocletian even for the first twenty years of his reign was like I got other stuff. I gotTA do. I got like paper paper stuff to do. And there's like wars battles and I can't worry about this but then suddenly he was like you know what I miss. I Miss Roman cults need more Roman Colt and so he's an. I missed the early like I missed the end of the third century. Like I want us to have more of that. And so he decides you know what Church Chris what me to do. Which is they have to give sacrifices to pagan gods. Now the problem was Christians. Now were bigger number and they farmed. They formed a large part of the army. The imperial household the civil administration. They were notable in the community. They had really organized. Well we'RE GOING TO SCRIPPS and churches in most of the greater cities of the Roman Empire But diocletian decides at this time. He's like you guys you know how member Yum not just the emperor. I'm actually a and I'm actually the son of Jupiter and you know Maximilian. He's the son of Hercules. Who Wins in that? Who would you rather be the son of Jupiter? Hercules Jupiter Jupiter. The Guy Right. It's the right move but see the problem is if you're a Christian in the military at this time one of the things you pledge an oath to the empire the end to the leader of the empire but suddenly you guys telling you. He's not a guy he's guide. We can't make a pledge to a God particularly when you're like I only pledged to one God and that's capital g. God so now we had a problem so diocletian was like look everybody. That's a Christian in the military. You either do or you resign. And so which meant a lot of people lost their income their way of life and so then he took to the Imperial Household and he said anybody in here not doing sacrifices. And not pledging to me a god you gotta go and it meant his own wife and his daughter were purged from the Imperial Household. So he did it do several edicts. It got worse before it got better and He ended up destroying Christian. Churches and books Christians couldn't gather They law civil rights There were widespread arrest and then slowly. It worked its way towards executions because he decided he actually recovered from illness which sometimes helps people like. See The light little perspective. It'd be like you know what else will almost lost my life. People are great. I should be chill good leader and he was like you know what everybody does accurate. I think we should double down the violence and when I say everybody does he killed the pope. Pope Marcellina was put to death and three. Oh four and this. Persecution went on for eight years so zo and I know that was a lot of stuff that we just hit you guys with. But that's important to know the context surrounding this story so it's not just constantly did a thing and thing happened. It's like it's a it's particularly we're climate. There's a big especially in what you're talking about. There's a big Old Testament energy about it. You know of like An imperialistic place that Christians are having to deal with and it's not super comfortable just in general and then it gets really uncomfortable like Daniel gone away like we might get thrown in a furnace. We might get killed. Our whole life might be taken from us so I think that's particularly interesting in the shadow of the story. Were about to read This oracle account from. Because of how things I I don't know it's like there's a simultaneous you can tell. Christianity is evolving and growing but the animosity towards it is not is not relegating at all like it's still there it's coming people do not like change. They don't they really ought and that's that simple. That's very true. Okay so we're going to read from lack tantalises. His account is a historian. I know everyone's familiar with He says and now a civil war broke out between Constantine and Maxon tease all. The Maximilian kept himself within Rome because the soothsayers had foretold that if he went out of it he should perish yet. He conducted the military operations by able generals. So there's some good subjects their maximum. T. As you mentioned. Constantine he Had Been along with his Dad Yadana campaigns. He had his guys that not just were his guys but also like fought and died with him. So they're like no this guy's got it. Maximum is on the other hand heating going on campaigns. He's a house dog right now. Guys were loyal to him because of his dad and because of his Potential it wasn't a writer Dai. No it wasn't like we've done stuff with. You is your kind of guy so we want you to do well but we don't know what you're made we don't know if you've got it. You know what I mean. Who are the soothsayers? So that's really interesting. Hey it's it's the it's the prophets of the time and they're like yeah. Yeah Zola. You'll probably don't like the track record. Never good in Rome. Sometimes they hit but a lot of times. They're just like I don't know we'll see but for the purposes So Constantine he started out in like you said Britannia which is obviously the UK And he slowly makes his way I think he's in France so he's getting closer and closer to Rome. And what con- mcentee I should have done was just stayed in Rome. There's precedent for Trying to survive siege in Rome because that would be harder for Constantine And that was a smart move but he goes to the soothsayers And they even confirm this and he's like you know. I think I should fight. Think if you if a soothsayer saying you should stay home. You shouldn't go to battle would be like you guys my political advisors that. I'm needed here like that would be your perfect excuse to get out of fighting. You're not a fighter. Never fought your general. Say Stay the Soothsayer. Say say you're like now I'm GONNA go. Let's let's do tobacco season so enforces. Why enforces he exceeded his Avatar? He had the numbers for he had not only his father's army which deserted from severance but also his own which he had lately drawn together out of Martina. I'm sure that's right in Italy. They fought in the troops of Maxon. Tears prevailed at length. Constantine with steady courage and mine prepare for every event led his whole forces. So the neighborhood of Rome and encamped opposite the million bridge so they'd had some skirmishes. It was kind of a split or Maxon at kind of prevailed not in a decisive of way. But in a I'm clear the superior Force here right But the the camping out opposite the million the bridge was like if we're gonNA have like the definitive battle. Let's do here.

"constantine" Discussed on The Bible Binge

"We you to love others as you love yourself and share the show on social media and if you WANNA fall along as we go the main biblical scripture. The store recover is nothing fight. We're we're post Bible kidding. We're not we're going to the side of the Bible. In case you have like historical accounts of ancient events you can follow along. Actually just relax sponsored by way are using journals who were like. Oh let's go back to three hundred eighty see what Herodotus exit here so okay so let's effort second were were. This is our first ever not Bible story and the Bible Binge. How do you feel? How do you think people feel right? Well I was. I was actually nervous about this And maybe not supportive of this idea but now prepped the episode and really spent time with it actually think it's pretty brilliant. It's fessing story and it's a as we will talk about is a seminal moment in the history of Kashani so feels if we're going to talk about something like this. It's great in a season like this. If you're going to talk about somebody let the Guy. That's referenced as the thirteenth possible that's true. Yeah that's fair so we've got this going to be a simple is story in terms of facts and details and players. Do you WanNa talk about the CAST. Really broke so this episode is all about. Constantine so constantine the first was a Roman emperor who ruled early in the fourth century. ruled the Roman Empire. Which I listen. I had no idea how big the Roman Empire ways so I needed like. We'd like is he ruling wrong like a like a Rome Olive Garden Manager. You don't mean. Was it a big deal. No I knew it was a big deal but I didn't know how physically bigger how many people were there like a like one hundred thousand people. I didn't know because I would read things and it would be like. He died in Great Britain part of the Roman and I was like what how history is weird. Forty thousand troops died in a single battle a lot. A lot of people so the Roman empire was three million square miles At the height of its power and fifty five million people which is like the combined populations of California and Texas sure. There's a lot of people so Constantine. His Dad was chorus. His mom was Selena. Had five kids for were legitimate. That's very common for the Bible. You guys weird for us at all. his name means constant. Not surprised. Very on the knows the name means steadfast Or stable okay. So the next cast member are other. Cast member is going to be maximum. Tedious so maximus also a Roman emperor. He's also Constantine's brother-in-law. You might be like oh he married like Constantine married maximum sister hop both of them both his younger sister Bellsa and his other sister minner Vena Which if you're like Fausto and minner Vena hottest I don't like I like the minner interven- intervening I would have gone foster really. I don't know it just thought. Well he went. I'll tell you who is married to longer False okay but Maxon. Tease is a name that is derived from the Latin maximus. You know like all the things we've heard sure and it means illustrious or mighty glorious or important or significant. Do you think someone named mcentee. Us wrote the meaning of the name. I think accent. Yeah Yeah so and I love it. It's like also derives from the Latin. Magnus which means large big great so a lot of big iconography you well. It's a it's a name that NFL like an ancient Roman. Like when you say it you kind of know who you're getting you know what's up here. You know what I mean. It's not one of those like this berry was equal that this is Liam. I know his music. I just know that already so when we were approaching this was like these are non you know extra biblical characters. These are people who As we'll find out they have a feud that are aligned at one point but then they break ranks with each other and go toe to toe and this might might be slight prisoners of the moment but it felt really appropriate. So what we're GONNA DO. We're GONNA CAST. Constantine as Carol Baskin from the television program Tiger King on Netflix or baking skin as Joey. And then we're GONNA call Maximum tedious who I will refer to as maxine ships. And just you gotta deal with it right. He's got to be graceful with me in that way we're going to cast Maxon us as Joe Exotic. Joey's then feels ball. Yeah I Constantine was listening right now which I'm sure isn't having or wherever he is i. I'm sure he'd be like this. This is right. I feel connected basket. I've watched the DOC on Netflix. In a really like her. I think specifically if you're familiar and most people should be familiar with tiger. Carol Baskin is a character who is starts out as one thing ends as a different one is complicated nuanced and the story around her Versus the story that is actually true is not instinct with each other. No it is and the other thing about Carolina in that I like is that she a trendsetter in terms of like I think her intentions are good and like but she gets she goes astray and her execution. Yes and we get a lot of that in. Constantine you also Carol Baskin made animal. Print is bringing 'em animal rent like handedly and I read that. Constantine Converted to not have beards anymore. Ooh Big deal okay so style and fashion icons in their own right okay. So let's there's a lot of contexts because this is not in the Bible so we don't we're we're dealing with varying degrees of understanding and awareness for you guys listener so we wanted to do a pretty thorough job before we get to the story so I'll go first To the question of what is going on with Roman Empire so The Roman Empire itself is. It's obviously point in the Soyuz and established centuries-old institution. They've evolved from a republic based setup where they would elect of the people would elect to consoles for Democratic Representation. Now they have more strongman model. Like strongest dude wins sharp. Whoever's got the military they're pretty much going to run the show and that was the case for the guy preceding constant man named Ike Lesion Diocletian. He rose the ranks of the military to become a cavalry member of the previous Emperors Army. And then after that emperor died and deaths of Kerris was his name the death of his sons as well. Diocletian was proclaimed the emperor so he takes over and he's weird figure because he's very reasonable and interested in creating a sustainable Rome which has been in flux because of all of the military rulers because of all the upheaval on actually splits the Roman Empire into two sections the eastern Roman Empire in the western Roman Empire. This enabled the empire itself. Because like you said Jamie it's so big in vast It was Run ruled more efficiently and able to defend its borders diocletian himself. He creates a tetrarchy a ruling truckee. Which means before total rulers overseeing things everyone has like quarter division of the Empire. And there's two senior members name Augusta's to junior members named Caesar's So this is all pretty good and reasonable. I like I like he feels like infrastructure. Yes but The weirdness is directly. Shen also seemed to feel like human rights are kind of a suggestion and not something. He really needed to pay attention to so He ceded to some political support for an attempt to eradicate Christianity within Roman borders. And we came to be known as the DIOCLETIAN. Tonic nailed. It on. No idea don't even check that persecution There were four total edicts. Target Christians with last one being everyone come gives sacrifice. And if you don't you gotta get dead so not long. After this Diocletian he advocates the throne. He retires wants to grow vegetables literally wants to do. Meanwhile the tetrarchy system collapses in his wake under the competing claims of as and Constantine Which brings us to where Constantine takes over. That's right so constantine he was born. You'll see a lot of differences I'd like it was like was born in seventy two. Was He born into eighty? It doesn't really matter like in the concept of things because he himself didn't like his birth year feel that way. Sometimes I WANNA BE I. Don't I love my year? I hit my birthday? I WANNA lock less right. You've ever Christmas and you know who's to blame why you hate your birthday. Concert Saint Okra not comprehend? We'll get to that so So Constantine's father Constantinos no constantly constantly S. O. Is For real you say? Let's let's have a conversation just really quick about this family. So his father is constantia. Constantine the great he will have four legitimate children which we referenced. Their names will be constant in the second constantia is the second constance and no kidding Constantina. The one girl look room with the Romans were good so many things like I know. Roads and stuff like that but Naga nation. They just wanted you to know for sure like my dad is Constantine Bethlehem constant. That's how you can know that that's how you get honestly thought his dad's name was constanze. Just this is going to be tough for me guys. Yeah so. His Dad was an officer in the Roman army. His mother Helena. She was the daughter of an innkeeper. So very low key. She probably wasn't even his wife. To be honest. It was of common cause. Constantine was an only child now when he got to be a teenager. His Dad left his mom to go mary the stepdaughter of Maximilian. Now Maximilian was one of those. You said you talked about. The Empire had four leaders. Maximilian was one of them and so he was the western Roman emperor so when Constantine was twenty one years old his dad was made deputy emperor and this is called nepotism and so constitute himself. He was actually sent to the court of Diocletian who you mentioned earlier the eastern Roman emperor and there he was educated in Latin and Greek. Now diocletian was a political brain. And maxine was a military brain and so Diocletian I love it. He was just like. Hey Maximilian Can you kate? Can you just leave? He's like okay. I'm GONNA go make. Everybody was wanting to retire to deal with vegetables. So Constantine's dad became the western Emperor. So that's how he becomes constantia the first ripe so constantine joined his father like on a military campaign he fought alongside him in Britain. This realize Britain was in the Roman Empire and The next year constantly us his dad he died at York which I only know about from Hamilton and. Constantine was declared by his troops to be the emperor. I love this because I like that. The troops are leg. Your favorite you now get to be emperor should be like the Guy I think. Let's Constantine was I right. I am the guy. He was not the guy because it took six years of infighting. Because remember this is a world ruled by other people as well as you and so particularly. He has a problem with his Pesky brother-in-law Maxon teeth. That's right so who is this maximum guy so like you mentioned his father the Emperor Maximilian. I'm sure he did like you said and in that new tetrarchy that Diocletian favor setting up. He was passed over. It was it didn't go to maximize. Es The Sun I'll somewhat logical point It was Passover forgotten Flavius delirious severance. Do any of those names mean anything to you buckled percents. Do you WANNA try. Do you even care Sam again. Flavius Valeria Severance Flavio. Like leg-up life. Close it may it? That's a reasonable thing you said. It's a reasonable saying is all three of them hop culture. There's a there's a Harry Potter Component. Here they just wanted to highlight think. Don't know that guy the Flavor Flavius Guy he was made Caesar And then later in Augusta so Max..
