How John Miller Got Inside John Gotti's Interview Armor

"John said he noticed a chink in Gotti's armor. You know, John was always afraid of electronic surveillance equipment inside his club, so he would hold meetings with the top members of his family. Like I said, walking around the block. And John Miller thought that meant that a halfway around the block, he was as far as possible from ducking back in the club. So he set a plan in motion. And the plan was we bring four camera crews. That's a lot for a story on a news show. For camera crews, that leaves two crews to tussle with Gotti's bodyguards, and then still leaves two other crews to talk to John. And the plan worked brilliantly. So one night, 1986, John Miller's got full cruise state around the corner from Gotti's club, the first time he comes around the block, he's got four of his men with him. And that was too evenly matched for John Miller's taste. So they left. The next time he comes around, he's with just two guys. Frankie Lucas you tremendous captain very respected captain. They call Frankie lox and Sammy the bull. John Miller gives the signal to move in. It was like clockwork. First camera crew approaches and Sammy of bull and Frankie locks, they spring into action and they block the camera lens, just like they knew they'd do. Doubles back, but he walked straight into the other camera crew, Frankie lodge took off after that one. Then the other two crews moved in, so they had them dead to rights. The monsters knew it, right? So John Miller's thoughts that pose a series of polite questions about John Gotti and the mafia, which John declined to answer. Frankie loaves and Sam the bull is still running after all the cameras, but too many to cover. Some guy tells them an Italian stop. Knock it off. So there they are. Four camera crews, John Gotti the boss, the underboss, the console, Frankie locks, and John Miller walking down a quiet street in Little Italy, you're just chatting. And all John Gotti said was, you know, John, I always treated like a gentleman. Always like a gentleman, John, you're not acting like a gentleman. And John says, look, mister Gotti, most of the time, my crews and I end up rolling around the sidewalk with your crew. And that's not sold generally either. So they made a deal that night. That John Miller could approach John Gotti and ask him anything. He might not answer, but everybody would be polite. And I said, wow, that's fucking cool.

The Greatest Weight Loss Misconceptions With Dr. Ashley Lucas

"Are the greatest misconceptions that you identified when it comes to losing weight and keeping weight off and talk to us about starvation diets and calorie counting and things like that. Yeah, you know, when you go to your doctor and you got some weight to drop they're likely going to tell you that you just need to exercise more and eat less. But when you really dive into the literature behind that, we understand it's not as simple as that. The body is much more complicated than just that simple equation. And let me interrupt you here. Eric put that photograph of the vest up. Let me just be explicit. I did that with no extra exercise. I mean none, okay? I walk the dogs every day, I swim down again, but that loss 34 pounds wasn't because I started running marathons every week. It's because of her system. Sorry, I just wanted people to understand. I didn't become a triathlete to lose the weight. I just went on your system, so please carry on doctor. Yeah, I mean, to burn ten pounds of fat, you would have to cycle 1000 miles or ride your bike 1000 miles. And we just know that from an exercise component, it's helpful. Walking your dog like you do is important. It's good for your heart health and stress and mood and sleep, but the body just when you exercise above a certain amount, it almost holds on to the fat a little bit more. I have clients all the time coming in to see us saying that they're doing all of this different type of boot camp activity and they're still not dropping the weight. They're actually increasing in the amount of fat that they're carrying. So I don't want to say that exercise is not good, but there's just a certain amount that's not going to benefit. And actually genetics have a lot to do with if you're going to respond to exercise with dropping weight that's largely a genetic predisposition and a lot of people can increase exercise and not see the weight loss. So moving is great, but it's not going to allow for you to see the big drops of 30, 50, 100 plus pounds.

How Dr. Ashley Lucas Developed the PHD Weight Loss Program

"Let's go back to the beginning. So you're left ballet, you realize this was a challenge. You got all the qualifications, got your doctor, got your registered dietitians, a qualifications. How did you arrive at this system? How did you build it? Can you walk us through that? Sure, I mean, I understood in my research how we need to treat them metabolism during my doctoral work. So I understood that the body is much more complicated than calories in and calories out. And that is not the answer to sustainably dropping weight. And then when I was getting my registered dietitian license and completing the internship, I learned all the same material. They thought we needed to instruct people to eat less and move more and eat everything in moderation. And I just knew that I did that when I was dancing and it didn't allow for success. So I flipped all of that upside down. I did my own research and started to implement it first in my own life and my husband dropped 40 pounds where avid cyclists really healthy people, but we were still struggling with excess weight. I then started to work a lot with athletes, optimizing their body composition, enhancing performance. And what I found had this significant impact on athletes had a more profound impact on those of us struggling with excess weight. And right now, 72% plus of Americans are struggling with being overweight and obese. And that just allowed me to serve more people and we do what we say we do. We add massive value into the lives of folks and it just caught fire and now we've impacted thousands of people and are continuing to do so at a really speedy rate.

PhD Weight Loss's Dr. Ashley Lucas Describes Ketosis

"Explain, that's a very fashionable word, a ketosis explain what that means and how it fits into what you've developed. Sure, so ketosis is a metabolic state when your body is burning ketones for fuel. And that usually is required of the body to have us drop carbohydrate significantly. Let's say less than 20 grams of carbohydrates a day. So that's maybe just some green leafy vegetables in the diet and no other vegetables or fruits, for example. It's not a bad place to be. Many people really thrive in this area. It's okay. But it is a little bit difficult a bit more restrictive and I want to make sure that we're creating something that is as least restrictive as possible and sustainable. And so that's why we work with each individual uniquely to see what they tolerate and what we might need to look at during the weight loss phase.

Dr. Ashley Lucas Describes the Success of the PHD Weight Loss System

"The system just seems to be so obvious. Instead of locking yourself into a system that you can't maintain properly after you've lost the weight in which of course results in the spring back of all those pounds, as you explained it to me as Rachel is your team explained it to me. It's very simple. It's about chemistry. If you have weight you want to burn. You need to burn it. And if you're eating stuff that your body will burn instead of burning the fat, you never gonna burn the fat. So this is why cutting sugars minimizing carbs in the beginning is how you, in my words, you reset the body chemistry. It worked for me, tell me what I'm getting wrong. What I'm oversimplifying, but explain how the PhD system gets these incredible results. It really is doctor gorka that some have to teach the body how to burn fat for fuel. And nearly every cell in the body prefers to work this way metabolically, but we don't let it by the way that we've been told to eat. And so what we need to do is find that unique place that unique carbohydrate tolerance level where we can get the body into burning fat. For the majority of us, I want you to think that this excess fat weight is locked away in a freezer store that you can't access. So you're hungry all the time. You've got cravings. It doesn't feel good. There's inflammation as a result. And that can come out like knee pain, joint pain, poor sleep, that poor mood, but when we can unlock these freezer stores when we can teach the body how to burn fat for fuel, then this is when you can see this much more effortless pain weight loss. And by finding your unique carbohydrate tolerance level, it doesn't mean that you've got to be keto or very low carb or follow the Atkins diet, but it's going to be unique to you. And that's what we do is we create this customized meal plan to get each person in their unique state of fat burn.

Sebastian Welcomes Dr. Ashley Lucas to the Show

"I've lost 34 36 pounds an hour already, my wife has lost over 25. And it's all thanks to doctor Ashley Lucas and I've invited her one on one. Doctor Lucas, welcome to America first. Thank you. Thanks, doctor gorka for having me. All right, so this isn't an extended promo. This is about you. This is about your life story. And just trying to talk some sense into this whole concept of being the right weight and how so many systems are stupid starvation systems or calorie counting and all that goth. So I found your story originally when we chatted fascinating. So tell us how you got into the industry and originally your struggle with the whole question of healthy weight and the right weight. Yeah, so I spent my first 25 years training at the classical ballet dancer. And I was chronically met with injury. I had stress fractures in my back and my feet. I was always under eating and over exercising to achieve this aesthetic that is demanded by ballet. Right, so you've got to be as light as a butterfly, but then able to dance around for hours on stage. This is the dichotomy. That's right. It's so tough. And I had a pretty successful career because I just constantly bought through it and danced through one injury after another. And the cumulation of my career, I found myself performing up in New York's every dancer's dream. But instead of finding myself up there in the spotlight, I found myself in the ER. I thought I was having a heart attack. I didn't know what was going on, but after a whole bunch of different tests, the physician said that I was simply underfed and over exercised and I just couldn't do it anymore. So then what happens? What was your big life decision? Tell us about the journey from there to where you are today. Well, I was devastated. Like any professional athlete, it was my identity. Didn't have any idea what I wanted to do, but I knew the significant impact nutrition or really lack thereof had on my own sport performance. So I went on and I studied exactly that. I earned my PhD in sports nutrition and chronic disease. And studied what happens to our metabolism when we chronically under eat when we die at all the time.

Dr. Ashley Lucas: Debunking Myths in '5 Steps to Reset the Scale' Book

"Of the big myths about weight loss is the first thing I learned is this idea that you got to starve yourself with a dramatic caloric reduction and PhD weight loss sort of explodes that myth. Talk about that because that's covered extensively in the book 5 steps to reset the scale that's out this week. Let's talk a little bit about that because most of us think you really got in order to lose weight. You got to starve yourself. Yeah, we're told that we need to eat less and move more, but we know that the body is so much more complicated than that. Our body is not controlled by calorie sensors. And if you really dive into the research and you look at what happens when we severely restrict calories, it's actually shuts down the metabolism. There is increased depression and anxiety and we find that it's just not sustainable and we relapse, regain all the weight that we've dropped. So severely restricting calories being hungry, white, knuckling it if you're dropping weight, just isn't the answer. Maybe you'll drop a bit of weight or a lot of weight, but it's likely to come back. And so we really focus on creating sustainable change and you got to enjoy what you're eating. And I would say that's true for you, Mike, right? I know that was one thing you were really nervous about. It was. He thought that you were going to have to eat like a rabbit and not be able to go to Wendy's, but we've been able to keep that in.

"Dot com. Make like a mister milk toast you'll get shut out. Folks, welcome to Eric metaxas program. I'm at the NRB in Nashville, which is a city in Tennessee, except part of the city has been taken over by this thing called the Gaylord opryland resort. It's kind of like a terrarium for people. And we're inside it right now. They pump in the oxygen. If they choose to pump it in less, people die. So it's scary. It's scary, but the good news is I bump into all kinds of Friends, old friends, new 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 mean, 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 mega churches. You know, 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 teaching. And so, I mean, I have my answers for this, and I was on a panel with you yesterday where you were asking me about this. But let me ask you, why do you think people who are supposedly Christian leaders pastors would allow this kind of thing to drift into their world? Do they are they simply convinced that it's true or are there some of them who are just afraid to stand against it? Is it sheer lack of courage? You know, I had said this yesterday on the panel that I really think that, yes, there is a problem with the pastors. But I'm looking a lot to the professors. And I think there's been this trickle down from the professors at what used to be trusted Bible colleges that have now moved to progressive. Give me an example of a trusted Bible college that has allowed these ideas in seriously. I think there's good people in a lot of Bible colleges, but I think we see places even like Wheaton or viola. And again, I love people eaten by a lot. I've spoken at some of these places and maybe I won't after this interview. I don't know that that could ruin that right here. Right. But I think that there are individuals there that have really drifted. I think a place like azusa Pacific. They've changed their policies on sexuality. It's like, when you talk about biola and Wheaton and zhuzh Pacific, it is hard for me to take it in. The idea that these places, which I would have sworn up and down, these folks are solid, that these places have allowed this stuff in. You know, it is mind bending. Who are the presidents of these three places? Why are they allowing this to happen? I mean, look, if people are sending their kids to these places, or if you're thinking of going to these places, the idea that we're talking about this right now should give you.

"Understand where you're coming from. Yeah, I mean, I shared this in several places that in 2016, we lost about 40% of our church for and I didn't wear Red Hat. I didn't have a Trump banner on the stage. I didn't talk about even endorsing particular candidates, but I did a series teaching about biblical views related to issues of the election of the upcoming election 2016. We had about 40% of our church leave over about a 30 day point. That sounds very healthy. It sounds like they finally realized, uh oh, I guess I'm not a Christian. I'll see you later. Yeah, that's kind of what happens, kind of what it felt like. And look, I'm going to red state with a super majority, but we're in a blue county. Look, this is a healthy sifting. People have to deal with these issues. There's no way around it. And the idea that politics can be divorced from faith or faith from politics, that's another cudgel that the left uses simply to shut up. Yeah, silence you. People of faith. I mean, imagine wilberforce saying, my faith compels me to use the political process to abolish the slave trade, tons of people in his day, told him, keep your faith to yourself. We're not interested in your faith. And he thought, well, I'm interested in doing what God calls me to do, and I'm going to do it, and I'm going to live with the results. I mean, this is exactly what we've seen in the book of acts of basically, look, I appreciate what you're saying, but I'm going to listen to God instead of you. And I'm going to show up in the temple the next day in preach. I think the decision that every single Christian has to make is, are we going to just bow down to the state? Are we going to bow down to the government or are we going to submit to God? And look, as you look at church history, Jerome, during persecution of Christians, defended the church by saying, look, Christians are going to be the best citizens that you're ever going to have in your nation. We're going to although the laws, we're going to make sure it's a just society. All these sorts of things. But we're just not going to bow down to you as God. We're not going to offer sacrifices that you want us to offer. We're going to follow Jesus. And this is really what we're saying. Christians have been labeled today as this rebellious group trying to cause all these problems. At the end of the day, we're saying, look, we'll do whatever you want us to do unless it violates my faith and my conscience in Christ. And what we saw this last two years is the government forcing people to violate their faith and conscience over things like vaccines, et cetera and we have seen many Christians go along with that. 100%. In other words, here is a moment, all these people that said they love my bahnhof for book. Hey, this would have been a really sweet moment for you to show that you understood the content of the book, but in fact, it's obvious that they didn't that now when it comes to you to do something that may cost you something. You go, ah, no, not yet. Not yet. I'm not willing to do that. I'll wear a mask. I'll do that. We just got 40 seconds. The book is the Christian left, final thought Lucas miles. Yeah, I think the difference about what I'm saying maybe what you hear from some others is at the end of the day, we also have to make sure that we're ministering to people. Some people have ended up in this place in deception. Some people have ended up in this place because they just haven't heard a better answer. They've been ignorant of these things. They just haven't been, they haven't been in the word enough to know. And I think it's important as Christians that we don't just write people off. We don't just condemn them immediately. We speak the truth. We stand on the truth, but we still want to minister to them and really help lead them back because I think there's some of these people are going to be able to come back to biblical truth. I like your hopeful attitude. I think you're exactly right. You're a good man, Lucas miles, congratulations on all you've done, but especially on the new book, the Christian left, how liberal thought has hijacked the church, God bless you. Thank you. I don't want anyone in this radio audience to miss out on giving to food for the poor. This is an important opportunity and if you are part of the radio audience and that means if you can hear my voice now, you're it.

"I'm talking to Lucas miles he has written a number of books. The book I'm holding in my hand is the Christian left. And you are the one of the co hosts of the church boys podcast all over the place. You live in this world and you've seen this, I just imagine, since I had lost friends, you've probably lost friends who they simply don't understand where you're coming from. Yeah, I mean, I shared this in several places that in 2016, we lost about 40% of our church for and I didn't wear Red Hat. I didn't have a Trump banner on the stage. I didn't talk about even endorsing particular candidates, but I did a series teaching about biblical views related to issues of the election of the upcoming election 2016. We had about 40% of our church leave over about a 30 day point. That sounds very healthy. It sounds like they finally realized, uh oh, I guess I'm not a Christian. I'll see you later. Yeah, that's kind of what happens, kind of what it felt like. And look, I'm going to red state with a super majority, but we're in a blue county. Look, this is a healthy sifting. People have to deal with these issues. There's no way around it. And the idea that politics can be divorced from faith or faith from politics, that's another cudgel that the left uses simply to shut up. Yeah, silence you. People of faith. I mean, imagine wilberforce saying, my faith compels me to use the political process to abolish the slave trade, tons of people in his day, told him, keep your faith to yourself. We're not interested in your faith. And he thought, well, I'm interested in doing what God calls me to do, and I'm going to do it, and I'm going to live with the results. I mean, this is exactly what we've seen in the book of acts of basically, look, I appreciate what you're saying, but I'm going to listen to God instead of you. And I'm going to show up in the temple the next day in preach. I think the decision that every single Christian has to make is, are we going to just bow down to the state? Are we going to bow down to the government or are we going to submit to

"Sitting here in our old age. Right. Talking about the issues with the Christian right. The fundamentalism that has come in and people have abandoned the gospel of grace. Honestly, it's fascinating, but we have to fight this battle and I think it's kind of funny because when I see folks like former former campus crusade crew, okay? On their blog, they have somebody kind of writing about systemic racism. And this and that. And when you read it, you think to yourself, and this is the key. And this is how the devil works. Is that there may be truth in what is written, right? Somebody's had an experience. They've been, you know, but it's the fact that by talking about it, you're not talking about something else, you're elevating this to like, hey, this is an issue. We need to deal with. And the fact of the matter is no in the scheme of things, this is not. In this nation, hundreds of millions of young men died to end slavery. So if you really want to be talking about it, somebody got their feelings hurt because some jerk looked at them funny, your priorities are screwed up. So part of what it is to be a leader is to say, we're talking about this. We're not going to talk about this. We don't need to talk about this. This is not one of the central issues that need discussing. Yeah, and so this is a big question. Really, the idea are there such things as secondary and tertiary doctrines? Or is every doctor in primary? And see, the interesting thing has been happening is we have solid Christian denominations. Charismatics and evangelicals arguing about speaking in tongues versus not speaking to telling us women administration versus not women in ministry. The whole time, while all this is happening off to the side where the progressive church is rising, they're fighting, instead of just going, you know what, there's going to be certain things where I disagree with you're getting your answers from scripture. I'm getting my answers from scripture. I can at least respect your answers because you haven't left the Bible. And why don't we join together and start really speaking out against this growing Marxist entity that is using the name Jesus in the church in order to try to advance their society? Well, and again, you have really respected people like Tim Keller, who, for years, was a friend, but he says things that he says, well, everybody should get their hands on everything they can read on critical race theory. And I think no, no, no, no, no. That's preposterous. People don't have time, and when you say that, you're implying, there's a lot of good stuff here that we need to chew on. Right. And I want to say about it. There's not a lot of good stuff. It's like reading mein kampf. You read mine confident college to familiarize yourself with it. But you don't have to be like, hey, get your hands on all the Nazi literature. You can get your hands on. So that you can find something you don't need to read everything to know it's bad, it's basically wrong, and can we move on with our lives? We have other things to do. Look, you wrote the book on bahnhof, and one of the things that I think is interesting right now, people like you and I, we would get called by the left, Christian nationalists, because we love Jesus and we like living in the USA. When you look at the church in Germany, and you know this, even better than I do, what you see is that the not to fight German church, they were the ones that were willing to lay down biblical ideology in order to do anything that the government said. Who are the true Christian nationalists today? It's the church of the left. It's the progressive. They are the ones bowing down to the state, taking that agenda forward in order to promote anything that the state wants them to do all the while laying down biblical ideology. Well, right, and there was a brilliant article. We had her on the program, Megan basham, at daily wire. She wrote about this. And it's a scandalous thing. And part of it is this idea of that it's kind of like wanting to be part of the elite or thinking that I'm going to be more effective evangelistic if I'm kind of not sounding crazy. So I'm just going to, I'm going to agree with Anthony Fauci and whoever I have to agree with. And I think there's a time to be really bold and to say no, this is wrong. And there's a price to be paid, but you know, I don't know where I heard it, but you can't out give God, so you might as well pay the price and praise his name..

"Folks is here from taxes show. I'm talking to my friend Lucas miles who has a book out called the Christian left, how liberal thought has hijacked the church. So let's just continue this conversation. You're telling me that there's pressure to hire at places like viola at places like azuza Pacific and whedon that they're hiring people, so for them, maybe it starts out like they think, well, we want to be more inclusive and open minded and but what they don't realize is on these issues, you're inviting the devil into rob the children, the students of their souls. It's gotten that serious that this is not just, it's not a small thing what they're doing when they let these folks in. Look, I mean, even a place we talked about by all university. There's a famous mural that's been under debate for about a decade. And it's the Jesus mural. It's a giant portrait of Jesus painted on one of the side of the buildings. And this continues to come under attack that so much so that the president of the university, because of this color of Jesus's skin, because he's a little lighter than what some people would want him to be in this particular painting. Now we had the president of the university at one point came out and said that he could understand how this picture of Jesus would cause alienation for certain situations. Who said that? The president of the universe, and his name is. The last day of NRB. I don't even know what you're doing. You know why I know his name, his name is Barry. Yes, it is very, yes. And Barry is a good man. And I've known him for years. So it's particularly dismaying when a good man, like Barry Corey, is pressured into saying things like that. I don't think people realize when you say something like that, you can do tremendous damage on a number of levels because you're really giving comfort to the enemy by playing into their narrative. Because the thing is, Jesus was a Jew. If you have a problem with that, jump in a Lake of fire, if you like, but the point is he was a Jew. He wasn't a Puerto Rican. He wasn't a Nigerian. Is this really something that we need to be talking about? Even the idea of talking about it is itself crazy, right? Because you could say like, well, we can have that conversation, but there is unbelievable suffering going on in the world. There are Uyghur Muslims being murdered in having their organs taken out so that the Chinese government can make money. This is what we want to focus on. Let me pivot this a little bit. And just because this is why these things aren't so shocking for me. When you look at the history of the church, the two original heresies face the church, where the Judy eyes, and then the gnostics. And I believe that everything we see in church history is always sort of this pendulum swinging between the judaizers, the legal is the fundamentalist, and the gnostics who are really the progressives, the spiritual, but not faithful, those that we're trying to bring in some of these pagan concepts. So right now we are in a swing towards gnosticism, particularly ethnic gnosticism as a lot of people have been talking about. And that is really what's guiding the church. Now, in ten years, we might be swinging back to fundamentalism. And you and I are going to be.

"Give you pause because this is a staggering development. It absolutely is. Even some conservative universities conservative Christian universities, I have parents. I have a faculty coming to me and saying, hey, I just want you to know woke with them is at our door. And we have to continue to push it back. And we have to really ensure that we're not falling into this position. I mean, there's a lot of people who have done research, people like Michael O'Fallon and others who have really traced some of the money involved in this. If you look at a situation, even with a place like bio university, and again, I have great friends at my own university, some of them are on staff there, that you see a place that they've taken their 9 90s, which show they've taken $3 million from the reality family. A Chinese Indonesian billionaire who was involved in a greatest campaign finance scam scandal in U.S. history with the clintons. Well, now that that is more confusing than anything to me. In other words, why, in other words, I get that that's bad money, but it's different from Soros money where it makes perfect sense to me what you're trying to do with the money. What are the reality family trying to do with their money by sending it to a place? I think that there are, I think that there are we hear the name Soros. He's become kind of the boogeyman to the right. And I do believe that he is a bad actor and very much responsible for putting money into causes to really shift what he would call reflexivity where he is essentially using marketing money, dollars, et cetera, to change public opinion about certain issues. The left knows that unless they divide the church in the family, they can't win elections. And so they're going to continue to put money into things that create confusion in those spaces. One of the places they do that is they didn't hire Christian ad. They're also doing that in churches. We saw that through when it was all the stuff that came out about sojourners and Soros funds and these things creation care and all of that. But I'm not shocked when I hear that's happening with sojourners or creation care. I am shocked when I hear about azuza Pacific and viola. Now I'm horrified. They're getting pressure. And I believe, you know, it's the same with a lot of our mega churches. There's the staffing that's happening, hiring people.

"Book, doctor Constantino, that we haven't yet touched on? Well, one of the things might be pilot because a lot of people have questions about pilot or Judas, people have questions about Judas and his motivation about the wounds that were suffered by Christ. There's so much that we talk about. The trial, I went through the trial of Christ step by step the Jewish trial and then the Roman trial and how is it that the Jewish leaders finally convinced pilot to sentence Jesus to death? This is one of the things that I think is also very hotly disputed by many Bible scholars. Because the gospels portray pilot as being reluctant to put Jesus to death. All four gospels do. And pilot was known for being a very, very tough governor prefect of Judea. So many people say, oh, this isn't right, this can't be true. But I go through that through it in the book step by step, but why it is true that pilot was actually very reluctant to put Jesus to death, but it's for reasons of Jewish law and also for sort of Roman cultural reasons that might surprise people. Well, it is fascinating because again, the more you learn about this, the more it makes sense. That's what's so interesting. You realize that everybody is on tenterhooks that they're afraid. Everybody's working in fear. This is like this demonic hierarchy, right? Everybody's afraid that they are going to be crushed by if they step out of line. So you have every one of the Jewish leaders who have tremendous power that's been given to them by the Romans. They don't want that to be blown up. And if anybody's going to blow it up, it's this Jesus figure. He's going to screw it up. So they have to wipe him out. He is their enemy. But then you have the Romans at the same time thinking, well, if we are too harsh with the Jews, if we don't play ball, they will rebel. So the whole thing is just a simmering cauldron. That's right. And into this comes Jesus. And it is really just astonishing when we see a figure like you mentioned pilot, he really doesn't want to be involved. I mean, he literally washes his hands publicly to say, I have nothing to do with this. That's right. Talk more about why the Jews had to appeal to him to put Jesus to death. Why couldn't they do it themselves? Well, they didn't have the legal right to put him to death. There was one exception to putting somebody to death and I talk about that in the book. It's if they violated the sacred precincts of the temple. But they didn't have the legal right, but they also don't want to put Jesus to death because they want Jesus to be completely discredited. And there was nothing like crucifixion that the shame and humiliation of crucifixion, which would prove to the Jews that Jesus was a false prophet. You see, most of the Jewish people believe Jesus really was the messiah. At that time, they believed that because of all the signs he did because of all the miracles that he did. That's a major point. When you just said, most people don't know this. I think I've only discovered this myself by reading a book by my friend John rankin, but the idea that, I mean, when we think of Jesus coming on the full of a donkey and people saying Hosanna Hosanna. Right, right. I mean, we forget that, yes, yes, the people of Jerusalem actually believed are messiah has come. So this is a nightmare for the Jewish leadership. That's right, because they don't want rebellion. The Jewish leaders worked very closely with Rome. And this is not just in Judea, but everywhere in the Roman Empire. This is how the Romans kept their control. They worked hand in glove with the aristocracy all over the Roman Empire to keep the ordinary people suppressed. And aristocracy benefited from this relationship with Rome, but their job was to keep people under control and to keep them paying their Roman taxes and submissive to Rome. But the whole point is this, why do people believe that Jesus was the messiah? And they did. Otherwise, Jesus, if Jesus were not a threat, the people didn't think he was a messiah. He would not have been put to death by the Jewish leaders. So why did they think it was a messiah? Because he had long hair and a nice robe. It's because he did the signs because he gave sight to the blind and the deaf herd and the lame walk. And he raised people from the dead and not once or twice, but thousands of people over the course of three years. So we have to recognize that even though people might doubt the miracles of Christ, the very fact that people, the Jewish people knew the prophecies in Isaiah. They knew what the kinds of things the messiah would do. And Jesus did all those things. And no one had before and no one has since. So this is why they believed him to be the messiah. And this is why he was a threat to the Jewish leaders. Now, the Jewish leaders didn't know that Jesus did not have political ambitions. So they really saw him as a threat. But this is why they decide they have to put him to death by crucifixion. This is why they want the Romans to do it. First, they can distance themselves from Jesus death because he was popular. They didn't want to be responsible, but also if he were crucified, they could point to that and say, you see, he was cursed by God because of this statement in deuteronomy, cursed is anyone who hangs on the tree. And it was very effective because to this day, if you ask most Jewish people, why they don't believe that Jesus is the messiah, it's because he died on the cross. And so they presume that this means that he was cursed by God. They don't understand the meaning of the cross as a Christian would understand it, not just the payment of debt or something like that. But the depth of the love and humility of God, that's really the meaning of the cross, that he would do anything for us. And that even submit submit to the cross like St. Paul says in the Philippines chapter two. It's such powerful stuff. And the only way you can avoid it is to avoid it. Because when you look at it, it is really, it is just, it's astonishing. I mean, I think that the evidence for the historicity of the scriptures, the evidence for Jesus as messiah and God, all of this evidence is really overwhelming. It has become overwhelming. When I think of books like yours now, we have no excuse, folks. This is really dramatic that the evidence more than ever is available to us. You don't need to be a scholar. You just need to get a copy of this book. And look into this for yourself and see what you make of it. But I am myself amazed at how now in what looked like to be some kind of approach to the last days as things go crazy. The evidence for God to just becomes more and more dramatic. And what you're writing about, I mean, you've only touched on a number of things, but there's much more. But I think we are faith needs this kind of bolstering. Yes, it does. It does because the culture is attacking us and you mentioned about Greek Orthodox. I don't think that any more of the Greek Orthodox or afraid to ask questions. They have questions and they do ask questions. The problem is, where do you get the answers? Because it took me a long time to write this book. And I did a lot of research and I have a background in it. So rather than people trying to get the answers for themselves, which is almost impossible, unless you know where to look, unless you have the background and the research ability and the time, it's very difficult for people to answer those questions. So what they hear in the culture is that these things never happen. Jesus never really healed anybody. Sometimes people say, Jesus didn't even really exist as a historical person. Right. You know, so people don't really know. They want answers. And I also want to say that as a lawyer, I'm a skeptic by nature. That's kind of my thing. I really do want some kind of evidence. And I think there's a lot of evidence for Christ. A lot of evidence for the truthfulness of the gospels. And so I can understand why people want people have questions, but they don't really know where to go for answers. So hopefully this book will help people, at least in terms of the passion, the trials and the crucifixion of Christ, get answers not only from a spiritual perspective, but also from a historical and a cultural and illegal perspective that explains a lot of things that sort of behind the scenes expose.

"By stone. Now where did you find that? Because I write about this in my book, I remember hearing this years ago, but never hearing anything in 30 years since. So I looked into it in my book and I'm curious when I'm trying to remember now where I read about that I don't remember where the fact is it makes logical sense. I mean, when I discovered in my own research, the amount of gold. Yes. It is almost unbelievable, and I'm not kidding. When I was reading it, I thought to myself, this can't be right. But this is what the sources say. That this was a level of opulence because we have to remember king Herod, who was a bum, he wanted to use the taxpayers money to burnish his own reputation. That's right. With the Jewish people who rightly hated him, so he thought I'm going to build something a monument to my own ego to my own and it was a level of opulence that it's basically unimaginable to us. And so when we think about 70 AD, this building is set aflame, I mean, it really, once you begin digging into it, it just becomes more and more fascinating. So corroborating what I discovered, people wanted gold, the tiny bit of gold is tremendously valuable. And it was everywhere it had, it had just, I mean, I looked into what is the temperature to melt gold. It's a high temperature, but it's just absolutely fascinating. Yes, and not only not only the gold itself in the embellishments and the structure itself and all the doors and there were a number of doors. So we think of like a big church, but the temple was a huge complex. And it was inside the way I describe how you approach the temple that you could enter into the mountain and go through the center of the mountain and come out on the top of the Temple Mount. It was fascinating. But remember that there was also a huge amount of coinage there. There were so many coins that even long before the time of Christ, Roman historians talk about the opulence of the temple. And the fact that there's so much coin is there, it couldn't even be counted. So when Jesus cleanses the temple, this is something else I think Christians should realize, it's not that it just kind of lost his temper and decided to trash the temple. There's a reason there's a prophetic message that he was giving. And he was speaking against the corruption of the chief priest. So it's not correct that the Jewish people put Jesus to death, but it was a very small group of Jewish leaders who were threatened because they had their power and their wealth because they controlled the temple. And all of the buying and the selling of the animals and the money changing and things like this. So Jesus was a real threat to them. They didn't want to lose the control and the power that they had. And that power flowed from the temple. So that's a big part of the story. And the role of the chief priest specifically in the crucifixion of Jesus is quite key. But no, Jew would be surprised to hear this because it was widely well known. It's been as well known in Judaism, how corrupt the chief priests were during the first century. And this is the reason many Jews believe that God allowed the temple to be destroyed. From our perspective as Christians, Christ is the temple. And this is why he said to them, destroy this temple and in three days I will raise it up. So the temple was the presence of God on earth for Jews. But when Christ was incarnate, he becomes the presence of God on earth. And this is why he calls himself the temple. And also, we have not only this, the fact that the temples of presence have got, it is the only Jewish temple in the entire world. The only place where animal sacrifice could be offered, and it was also the largest temple complex in the entire world. As you mentioned, because Herod the great, had decided to enshrine his legacy through the embellishment and enlargement of the temple precincts. And there is so much here. And again, I'm just so thrilled that you've written about this. The book's cruise fiction of the king of glory. When you understand the majesty of these buildings, anyone there would have been in awe. Anyone would think he's absolutely crazy. He's an insane, radical. He's dangerous. He's blasphemous. People have to understand when he said that prophetically because of course a few 40 years later, that's precisely what happened. Right. That's right. The power of those words, it's very, it's basically impossible for us to understand unless we get the background and that's why I hope people will buy the book the cruise fiction of the king of glory will be back final segment with doctor eugenia Constantino.

"A lot of young people have been deprived, I think, of being exposed to what are the most colorful characters in the history of college football. He has been a cook. He's been gone, I think, about ten years. But at one time, was probably the most talked about figure at this network in many others because of the way he described and expressed his opinion about the sport so many of us love. John Lucas has, I'm going to let him tell the story, put together a book with, under the headline, haven't I suffered enough. If you know being our story, you know where that came from. And unbelievable career in sports PR and television. He's a historian a writer and John, thank you very much for joining us. It's a pleasure to remember maybe the most colorful character in the history of college football broadcasting. How are you? I'm doing great Paul. You know, beno said that the two greatest honors in the American can have or to win the Heisman Trophy to be the guest star on an episode of Colombo and I think as someone who's followed college football covered college football in my life, this honor of being on your show is right up there. Well, thank you. I still laugh the first time I read the comment. And I'll let you set it up. I can't remember the year. There was a baseball, it was the hostages, was it not coming back from Iran? And I'm going to let you pick up the story about how you got the title of this book. February 1st, 1981, vino was working for CBS sports and the publicity department. And he was at the NBA All-Star Game, which was in Ohio, the richfield coliseum. And that morning, Billy coon, the commissioner of baseball made an announcement that all the returning Iran hostages would be getting Major League Baseball lifetime pass that good as many games as they wanted the rest of their life. And there are still a bunch of writers, TV people at this hotel, getting ready for the NBA All-Star Game and being able was famous for his one liners. And they asked him, what do you think about this? And right off the top of his head, he goes, haven't they suffered enough? Maybe hard to understand the humor of it in the moment, so many years later, but it's one of the funniest lines even 40 years later. John tell us about your relationship with this iconic figure. And how this project came about. Well, Paul, the project actually predates me by two years. He started it in 1975 after he spent a year doing publicity for the dolphins. And being a cook and Don Shula didn't work out. So that job kind of went in the wet and scrap heap. And he came up with this idea to write a book. A couple years fast forward, he tried to put this thing together. He had all the notes together, but he couldn't write. The way the way you saw him or heard him on TV or the radio that just couldn't translate to the written word. So he tried with a couple other writers. It didn't work. And a couple of years later, this is about 1995. I'm an 18 year old kid in high school. I wrote him a letter. And I said, I wanted to get into sports media, via sports writer, specifically cover college football, maybe do some TV and radio. And sure enough, he wrote me a letter back. We got to be good friends. And I got out of school, graduated from Notre-Dame, 1999 and he asked me if I would help him put this book together, which was kind of a shock. I really didn't have any buy lines any notoriety myself, but he kind of he mentored me and he appreciated my writing ability and for some reason the two of us were on the same wavelength, whether it's college football, military history, our politics movies. I got his sense of humor and the way he talks the way he came across and we just it was a perfect partnership. John, I'll try to keep my own interactions with some out of the conversation because there are so many and I just remembered as you were describing him. We used to call I used to call him occasionally and correct me if I'm wrong, but he lived at a hotel or a motel in Pittsburgh. And when you called him, he answered the phone Colombo, right? Correct. Yeah. He had a famous way of answering the phone. And it depends. Most of the time you get detective Colombo, sometimes you get Steve Maguire from Hawaii 5 O, and occasionally, depending on the mood he was in, you would hear you would get maybe even doctor Quincy. Three great TV shows of that era. So as you began the project, obviously it took some time and as death didn't help. But too many stories to mention, but what stood out in gathering this lifetime of antidote. It's funny. Most people, if you think of being a cook, and I'm sure a lot of the viewers, listeners, your show, if you say that word, it's been a clip that name, they will come up with two things. They will come up with ESPN, the outtakes, or the Bron paulus prediction. And once I got into this, you know, I learned that he was so much there was so much more to the guy than most people know. I mean, not even just the on air stuff. I mean, his life and publicity, all the different jobs that he had. And he really was quite a mover in a shaker behind the scene in the world of network television. I mean, he had the ear of quite a few presidents. He was very close with ruin our leg and a couple other people. And it's really fascinating when you read this book and you find out that the way we watch college football today, the way it's covered and not just college football pro football other sports, he had a direct hand in all of those things. I mean, a lot of those people that are a lot of people are on the air today, people that have blogs or podcasts things like that. Ruin our put the number one college football fan in America on the air at ABC sports in 1982. And be no kind of broke the mold and he said everybody else up to be able to engage their love of the sport and talk about it. So that's really one of the most interesting things from my point of view is all the stuff that he did behind us seems to get himself into that position to get on the air. It was a million to one chance. I think him powered herself, maybe Jimmy the Greek were the only three guys who didn't have a traditional media background educational background sports writer. They just got on TV and the world fell in love with them. You mentioned Ron Paul, I'm testing my memory. He was a quarterback at Notre-Dame and being predicted. How many Heisman trophies for him? He said he was going to win at least two husbands. Did he ever come close? No, he didn't come very close at all. I thought he was predicted three or four. He said too. We get into in the book, where that prediction came from and why he made it. He felt very confident for a number of reasons, and I'm not going to give it, give it all away. But he goes into it. We spend a good two pages two full pages on that prediction where it came from what his rationale was and I think a lot of college football fans would be fascinated and they will probably look at it and say, you know what? Going on 30 years later, this guy was kind of right. I mean, I could see the logic behind it. John, he used to come on our program back when we were in Birmingham. And he would take phone calls. And he had an experience with one guy. I can't remember the guy's name. He lived in bessemer right outside. So after that, he would say beno cook is our guest here on this Monday. And the first thing I would say, I'm not talking to that guy from bessemer..

"About having a conversation, a private conversation, no conflict, no confrontation at all, a private conversation with another passenger about not wanting to wear a mask even though they were mass. So that aside, I did read about that a few days ago, and that is just one of the numerous thousands of examples of how this mask policy has been taken to the extreme and is just absolutely insane. Yeah, I think you look Josh, please address where U.S. freedom fliers is at right now in regards to this fight against the vaccine mandates. Sure. Yes, free employers that work. We're an all volunteer grassroots freedom movement that was started by airline professionals against forced vaccine mandates as quickly expanded far beyond aviation professionals. We have passengers. We have military groups. Train operators. Lots of different people that are joining us that are into the same boat, especially as federal contractors. So we're all fighting back and we are actually in the process of suing the Biden administration on the basis of legality of the mandates. I can really sympathize with Lucas and people are having issues with masks, you know, I see a frequency of seeing young children being thrown off a flight. It's really totalitarian, the way the airlines are addressing this, but what I believe is that coercion starts at the top. And this is where we need to stop it, you know? These companies are in bed with the federal government and they often like to justify the actions that they take based on the manage coming out from the federal government. They love to call law, which is not law. And I think it's time that all citizens get involved. This isn't something that we can win just in the transportation sector. We need every single person to get involved in the pushback, it's time that we take our rights back to free Americans. Lucas some comments on that. Yeah, but Josh makes a good point that drives my group absolutely insane. It's all these signs at airports and train stations that on buses and on any airline website you go to. You go to a book ticket on American Airlines for instance as I was looking at the other day because we're playing cat American to our lawsuit soon as the airline has several people have been denied nasty exemptions. We go to book a ticket on American and every single page you see for like the AKs just you have to go through to book a ticket in bold letters at the top of the page. It says federal law requires you to wear a mask at all times while in the airport and on the airplane and you know, I happen to have a degree in college degree in political science. So I have a lot more educated on the law than most non attorneys are. But even any kid in middle school who has taken any kind of civics or government class would be able to tell you one of the most fundamental tenants is how does the bill become a law? It gets introduced in a body of Congress. One of the bodies has it, it goes to the other chamber. That chamber passes it, then it goes to the president. The president signs it. Then it actually becomes a law, have any of these vaccine or mass mandates gone through that process?.

"Because of some of the quirks and the law, my group has also filed 6 lawsuits last month specifically targeting the TSA, and it's enforcement of the mass mandate. Does CDC put it out, but the CDC doesn't have any enforcement officers. So they're relying on TSA to enforce it if we can get TSA prohibited from enforcing it then the whole thing kind of falls apart because there'll be there's nobody then at the airport who will be checking to make sure that anybody wears their masks. And obviously we're going after the airlines as well because even if all of the governmental mass mandates for struck down, they airlines prohibited disabled people from flying for much of the second half of last year. Anybody who couldn't tolerate wearing a mask no matter what your disability, if you're a four year old kid and you have autism and you can't wear a mask, sorry, you can't flaw out into your line in the nation. So that's why we have to also go after the airlines because we have to ensure that they can never again conspire to prohibit tens of millions of disabled Americans from using the public airspace, which is enshrined into law that disabled people have a right to use the nation's commercial aviation system. Yeah, I think both of you are doing incredible work and Josh is a pilot yourself. As a flyer, perhaps I can speak for Lucas as well. The work that you're doing, Josh, is so incredible and important for the American people. And as you allude to, Lucas, the balance and the freedom to travel using the airlines freely without any of these mandates. I want to get in a little bit into vaccine mandates and Josh, you may not know but Lucas Lucas has made the choice to receive a vaccination. I don't know which one you'd received. Lucas, but you did state, clearly that you that you support people's rights to receive or not to receive the mandates. Josh talk a little bit about what you and your group again for listeners understand this is Josh yoder. The president of U.S. freedom flyers, Josh, address a little bit about what you're doing right now to combat these vaccine mandates and if you have any comments in regarding regards to the continued they continued mandates on these masks and throwing into this situation that I know you're well aware of Josh, a flight out of San Antonio headed for Las Vegas that clearly pinpointed a private conversation, even though these people were masked, even though a conversation was taking place against mess and Lucas, I don't know if you know about this, but a man and his family were deboarded the entire plane taken off. The entire plane passengers de boarded..

"And so even if mass were effective, the fact that, you know, there are different times during the flight you can remove them. You know, it just shows that this whole notion of masking is it's nothing but for the airlines but trying to calm the fears of the panicked masses. It actually has no scientific basis whatsoever. Lucas, there is a book. You brought up the word conspiracy and there's a book that has former Stanford fellow wrote. It's called the Federal Reserve, conspiracy. And I think more and more Americans are opening up to the concept that perhaps there is a conspiracy at play here on different levels. And you're identifying one that the airlines are executing that are hampering your civil rights. Have you always been objective to mask wearing Lucas or were you tolerant at first and then simply decided to speak out and do something about not wanting to wear them? No, 100% opposed from the beginning as soon as I started hearing about the flip flops when Fauci and the CDC and others started recommending masks. I was just very skeptical. I thought this just doesn't sound like this is a real mitigation technique. You put a piece of cloth on your face unless you have some medical grade respirator that's truly fit and sealed and everything. Anybody knows you can, you know, if you live in a cold climate, not we can't do this here in Florida, but you know, hey, if you're up in Minnesota, North Dakota or somewhere. All you have to do is put on a surgical mask to one of those, you know, ubiquitous light blue color things. We see everywhere. Just go walk outside and when it's below freezing and start breathing and have someone record you and you'll see the plumes of your respiratory droplets going out the top bottom and sides of your mouth. So all it does is redirect the directions of where your droplets are going instead of going straight forward. They're just spewing out top bottom side side. So I started doing a lot of research and finding all these studies from before COVID where people had looked at, oh, should we actually have masks on in the operating room or there were studies in Ontario province, Canada, about should nurses wear masks during the flu season. And every single one of them I read said, no scientific correlation between those who wore masks and any reduction in infection. And some of them actually found that the people who wear masks regularly had more health problems. And so I put on a mask a few times just to sort of test it out, but immediately started having these panic attacks and hyperventilation and ripped it off and pretty much throughout the whole pandemic I've never worn a mask except for a couple of times going shopping at Costco where they were like the mass Nazis even here in Florida at the Costco..

"And there are still lots of cases and loss of restrictions despite so many people wearing masks for a year and a half. It's something that you're doing for a year and a half doesn't work. Why do you keep doing the same thing over and over again? Lucas for listeners understand you are suing the CDC and the Biden administration. You're also suing commercial airlines and you have via text that you've sent me a case against the TSA, which will be heard or going to the Supreme Court this week. In your opinion, Lucas, why is it that the Biden administration is continues admiration with this mask wearing? What do they want to continue this order on having people wear masks? I think they just don't want to admit that they were wrong. This was a central campaign strongness of Biden last year. Even though he admitted on the campaign trail that's trying to do a national mask standing would likely be unconstitutional. He went ahead and did it anyway. Just to placate all of the folks on his side who somehow have bought into this propaganda that masks are the solution for coronavirus. And now that they're so dug in and there's so much into this, it just doesn't want to let it go because then that would be admitting that he was wrong. And he's very vulnerable politically right now. I am a political independent. So I sort of say this from my post in the middle of the spectrum and he knows that two thirds of Americans somehow still believe that masks are effective. So he feels he has public opinion on his side and if he were to change course and eliminate the transportation mask mandate that would be a admission that he was wrong on that issue. And nobody wants to admit they're wrong, especially not when you're the president of the United States. But scientifically, it makes no sense. We have hardly any states have mass mandates, most states have abolished their mass mandates back in the spring, many, many months ago. And if you're here in Florida, where I've been stuck for the last 6 months being unable to fly back home to Washington, D.C., staying at my mom's. You hardly ever see anyone wearing a mask, unless you walk into an airport and then all of a sudden you're in an alternate universe where everyone is wearing a muzzle, and that's at the federal government's dictate..

"So one of the things that you say is That thought entered america's sanctuaries exchanging the trinity of the father son and holy spirit for the trinity of diversity acceptance and social justice. How have you seen the left drift from christian orthodoxy. Sure so i'm in. I'm in south. Bend indiana it's a blue county in red state and you know i'm here downtown across from the county city building and i can tell you that even in my immediate area you know if you were to come by i could drive you within within a you know maybe half a mile radius and find five or six churches that are flying out in front of marxist flags and and rainbow kinda lgbt flex and these are entities that are established denominational churches. That historically have been really part of you know south bend a very rich religious history rich christian history but recently has really been hijacked by this sort of leftist agenda A lot of that here locally you know came through the When mayor pete buttigieg who ran for democratic candidate for president was was In office here in south bend area and that really kind of opened up the door for a lot of that conversation i think encouragement of the christian left and progressive christian ideology but this is an isolated south bend. This is happening around the country even even publications that have been historically really christian pillars in conversations of You know instruction for pastors. And what does the gospel and you know things like christianity. Today you know it feels more and more that the articles that are being put out by some of these entities are are kind of focused on sort of this woke culture rather than gospel or kingdom culture and so i think that there are individuals attending churches across the country that they're hearing some of this from the pulpit and they're trying to decide. What's the gospel you know is which is the real. Jesus the savior of the world social organizer the one who builds utopia here the one that builds the kingdom later. And how do we sort through that. How do we navigate that. And so i think that It's were probably past due for this conversation In many ways. And so. I'm i'm hoping that we can step back from some of these beliefs. A you know i. I can't tell you how many people written me and say an art. My church is now teaching critical race theory or my christian college colleges now introduced critical race theory in their diversity programs you know that they have And and these are these. Are things that are you know. there to the gospel and as christians. We can't just sit back. We have to address it and we can do so in love but we have to do so in truth as well. absolutely what. You mentioned marxism. So i'd love to dig into that. For just a minute. How has the radical marxist agenda deceived the church. Yes so. I mean there's really a long history here You know i it would. I've traced it back in my book. The christian left all the way back to the seventeen hundreds We could argue that..
