When did that happen in your life? It was not during the time that we're talking about 50 years ago was subsequent to that. Yes. It did. I get a question a lot. Said, going to the moon change your life. It did not. But I came back. I'd always believed in God. We were church doors, took our family every Sunday to our little Episcopal Church and report Texas anyway, but I was frustrated. I was 36 when I landed on the moon, and now climbed a ladder of success now what I had no peace, a marriage was falling apart. And fortunately, some people came to, in 1975, some people came to our little parish church, and they started talking about Jesus. Personal testimony. In an Episcopal Church, that's unheard of. Back then, it was okay. But not right now, it's hard. But. My wife listen intently. And she was on the verge of suicide. And this was in October 1975. And she heard these people and she realized I've tried everything in my life, but Jesus. And so after the weekend was over, she went in a bedroom prey.

"Keep going. And so I thought, you know, everything I've done has been really intensely focused on abortion, which I mean, that's my Wheelhouse, right? But. There's so much more to my story than just, I used to run a clinic, right? So, I mean, I've been married for 6, 16 years, I think, 16 years. And my husband and I have gone through a tremendous amount of healing, you know, my husband was always pro life when I worked at Planned Parenthood. So when I left Planned Parenthood, we had to go through a tremendous amount of healing, our marriage went a very tough place. So we had to work through a lot. We had a huge conversion just in our faith journey. We were kicked out of the church that we had been going to because it was pro choice. We were told we were not welcome there. You went to a church that specifically identified as pro choice. Yeah, the Episcopal Church. Oh, I've heard of the Episcopal Church. They've gone to hell in a handbasket. Yeah. In a good way, I would never insult the Episcopal Church on this program. Okay, so but I mean the idea they kicked you out, they're supposed to be like really inclusive. Super tolerant. So I we were kicked out. We had this big faith transition and coming back to Christ. And then when I left Planned Parenthood, I just had one kid and actually I was a terrible mom. While I worked at Planned Parenthood, I was never home, I worked 80 hours a week. I really didn't even want to be a mom. And so, you know, God really changed my heart on that too. I had to relearn how to be a mom. I had to relearn how to be a I had to learn how to be a wife. And then now we have 8 children. So we went from one child to 8 children. We adopted one of our children. And so there was just a lot to our story and I wanted to talk about all of that. And I felt like I feel like I've messed up so much in my life that my life is just one big display of God's mercy. And so I really wanted to showcase what God can do and someone's life and just how amazing and how big he is and how awesome he is and really how small we are. In the grand scheme of things. And so that's what I did. So that's why that's why I wrote the book. I wanted people to just see how amazing God's mercy is that it's available to everyone, and then what do we do? When we receive it, then how does that translate to other people? How do we then give it out to other people who maybe are unlovable? Maybe people we don't like? Things like that. Like these people sitting in front of us here. Beautiful. I have to show God's mercy to this group. I'm not ready to go there yet. Tell me why, tell me why. No, it is funny because it's easy when somebody I mean, what you're talking about, that's called real life, and it's why we need God, right? Because God enables us to understand how to do the right thing. When everything in us says no, avoid, avoid avoid the pain. So the book fears mercy,.
Lucas Miles Describes How 'The Christian Left' Has Invaded the Church
"Friends. I'm sitting here now with my friend Lucas miles. He's written a book called the Christian left, how liberal thought has hijacked the church. This is a very, very important subject. Lucas miles, thank you for being with me. Hey, thanks for having me. Let's talk about this because there's so many people that are that attend churches that are kind of drifting along with this. They've accepted some of this rather than understanding that this is very bad on every level. So when you talk about the church being invaded in your book, the Christian left talk to us about the details. Yeah, I mean, what we're really seeing is this rising, growing constituency of left leaning, Christians, progressive Christians, and sometimes Christians in name only who have embraced Marxism, socialism, critical race theory. When you say Christians in name only, do you specifically mean the Episcopal Church? You know, I think there could be there's probably some of these individuals may be in a lot of churches. But we have to be clear that the mainline Protestant churches, okay? They're all hanging out rainbow flags. They're all hanging out at BLM. I wrote them off when the National Council council of churches was formed. They are just utterly useless. But what you're talking about and what concerns us more is the so called evangelical church. We expect this when we drive through a big city and we see the old churches downtown that are these mainline denominations and just see those a lot of times they're higher liturgical. We expect to see the rainbow flag flying above the cross. That doesn't necessarily shock anybody today. It should, but it doesn't, right? But what we're now seeing is in our community churches are evangelical megachurches. These places that are teaching CRT that are pushing socialism Marxism Marxist ideas from the pulpit and many of these people are drifting a really away from, I believe, Orthodox Christian

Folks. It's probably a better way to say it and. When I first heard about a mood I was so excited to hear that there was something that seemed similar from edge use of color perspective. So it's something that I've really wanted to explore for a long time that both of us have and and we're really thrilled to finally have this opportunity.

Jesus, Colored Tour Academy, which became a mood colored tour academy and we started out by a every other week having a person in the community, a Jewish person of color in a community teach whatever they wanted and we we started her first Beta run I'm really got to see what what kinds of topics were interesting.

Massachusetts House Unveils Police Reform Bill, Boston
"Beacon Beacon Hill. Hill. The The House House is is set set to to debate debate a a police police reform reform measure measure that that includes includes a a police police certification certification process, process, standardizes standardizes training across the state and makes officer discipline records more readily available to the public. More from W. V. C. TV's Michael across the Massachusetts House of Representatives is preparing to debate its version of a police reform bill later this week. You know, hard work was put into this, You know, we've been in conversation just around the clock every day. For the past couple weeks, there's been a lot of input a lot of conversations with stakeholders on both sides. One of the major elements is the creation of the Massachusetts Police Standards and training Commission. It would be the quote civil enforcement agency. Decertify, Restrict, revoke or suspend certification for officers, agencies and academies. Naval also bans facial recognition Choke holds and has no knock warrant limitations. I think there's a missed opportunity African Methodist Episcopal Church pastors and the A. C L U of Massachusetts. Both have a problem with the House bill's language involving qualified immunity, which hinder someone's ability to take an officer to court if their rights were violated. You know if anyone else violates the rights, you get to go to court right and sue them, but It should be the same for police officers know in America. No one should be above the law, not even police officers. Enormous police chief is still going through the 129 page House bill to see how it compares to the Senate's version. But the bottom line is we want to make sure there is a good policing bill that approves policing and also Takes care of people feel like they've been underserved and under the House version of the bill, any future colonel of the state police can be appointed from outside of the department. The Senate has already passed its version of the legislation that would place limits on the qualified immunity shielding officers from civil prosecution and would place limits on the use of force by law enforcement.

Richard also served in the Arizona Attorney general's office as his special policy advisor for law enforcement. We welcome to the centering other conservative circuits Pastor Gerald Richard and passer a za, former prosecutor and public defender. I imagine you have a very unique perspective on what you're watching right now. Can you tell you tell us through the eyes of a pastor? What we're seeing. Ah, Jane first Good morning. It's so good, Teo talk with you again. Through the eyes of Pastor. I tell you what, probably one of the best sermons that I've heard, even with all of the and you and I have talked about the divisiveness that's going on was one that was Shared with us yesterday by Reverend Judy Kato. And it was based on love, and she was talking about how with everything that is going on whether we look in the Old Testament or New Testament. There's one Consistent message and that is, if we can love one another. We can get through this. And so through the eyes of a pastor. You're always concerned about the safety and welfare of your congregation. But you're also concerned about the safety and welfare of your neighbors. And so that would be, I guess. Part of the best way to put it far through the eyes of the past. Well, you know, now I gotta have you put on your your other cap. Because because you've been very involved in the city. You know, as a lawyer as someone who's worked with the police department with the A A G department. What are we looking at? We wear that hat. When it well, when I wear that hat when I I must admit it takes leaving. Further to not only What I felt when I was growing up in 1968 after Dr King was killed. And we had the rights that occurred in Chicago. And one thing that I always said was that while I was with the Phoenix Police Department and working with community relations and And the legal aspect of it. I never want to see that again and thank God under my watch. That did not occur even with one of the largest demonstrations in the state history with over 150,000 people marching In April 26. And so when I see this, I know that there could be through proper planning. Um and Communication and working. Working with the police and the community that you could have Incredible demonstrations with no incidents and no arrests. I'm proud to say that I was with the Phoenix Police Department as the commission on the Accreditation of Law Enforcement Agency said in 26 it's one of the best law enforcement agencies in the world. And chief Jerry Williams is doing an incredible job as far as trying to Work through all of this is going on right now. Um, right now, I tell you, it was so disheartening because I saw when I went to Ferguson, Missouri to do the act Action assessment, DOJ. And that is To see where there has been destruction. The James I saw something this morning that just absolutely blew me away. And that was the number of citizens have come out, especially those who are professional athletes or who had played Um, on the collegiate level to clean up the city to take those steps in order. I didn't see that When I was in Ferguson, I didn't see that in 1968. And so there's a certain balance that is going on here. Where by individuals they may Be disgruntled and disheartened because of the destruction that has gone on. But there are just too many individuals have said I'm gonna get up at 5 36 o'clock in the morning. And I'm going to go out there and I'm going to clean my city up because we're not going to stand for this far as being a place that looks like it's a war zone, one of the most soul crushing videos I've seen since this whole craziness to start. It was the old woman. Who was just devastated the story. Their neighborhood had been burned her department place, just date had been the high rise had been damaged severely. She had no place to go. She had no place to go if she was crying. Asking Why air people doing this? Why are you doing this? Why you? Why are you destroying your own neighborhood? Where is this woman going to go shopping now? Where's she going to get her? She's already Oh, jeez. I think she's gonna will changes. Her home has been damaged. What do people like that do? And most of the time when this is happening is in parts of the city, where most of our people of color And yet We don't have the Democrats talking about that. In the center ring of the conservative Circus. We have Paris Denard. He is a political and social commentator is the former George W. Bush White House staffer in in Paris, you you have called for Democrats to come out and condemn these riots. What are the chances that that's going to happen? Thanks for having me on the show, and I'm honored to be on again. I thought I don't know if Democrats appointed t get condemned the riot. I see what they're starting to do now, interestingly enough, Ah, He's stay at home bands, I think is pretty interesting in the middle of covert 19 in middle of Communicates the city's burning to the ground. They wanna lift. Um, stay at home orders that they've had in place to keep people healthy and safe from Kobe 19 but it seems as if they want them to be able to go out while the rioting and looting by and teeth and other liberal leftist anarchist groups are pillaging communities of color. I think that the Democrat mayors and governors have to stop putting politics before people and they need to understand that at this time, it's not about whether or not Donald Trump is right or wrong because in a sense of law and order, and public safety, hey has been right in the sense of him supporting the peaceful protesters and standing from Justice Resort. Floyd family, hey is right. But they don't want to admit that he is right and that his policies on the call for early Intervention of law enforcement to prevent the destruction of Black owned businesses. Pharmacies hot, You know, places where they go to the grocery stores means that is essential issue of this rioting that's happening. How is ravishing, the black community on it? It's a travesty of the Democratic governors and mayors did not come out. Early swiftly and strongly to denounce it. I agree with you something about it. I agree with you. I also just is disheartened when I'm seeing people like, Ah, don living will see it in encouraging the writing, encouraging the anger other pundits and encouraging this fully realizing that is the people who live in these neighborhoods who are goingto It's like for the rest of their lives, because 20 years from now these buildings are still going to be scarred and burned out. Not only the encouraging their justifying it and the funny thing about the situation as we all know that you can sit on your and your ivory Tower your your data community or in your penthouse and And and and talk about. Tell people Yes. Go out that your voice be heard. Go on, do that and that neighborhood over there, right? But if this was happening in There. Nearly front yard or backyard are their business or their grand parents. Kisses. Are there uncle small businesses or their own small businesses? They will be singing a different tune. Because you can sit back and let it happen to them because you don't feel like you're truly a part of it. But I I come in the people who may not even live anywhere near the violence and O'Reilly, who can say This is wrong because I care about the black lives the black businesses that are being destroyed unjustifiably by these anarchists and these people and teeth of people and some in the community who need to know that what you're doing is vulnerable is justifiable and it's wrong. Ladies and.
