"I mean you name it. We did it and we started hearing that back east. There was this guy named jerry falwell and that he started this thing called the moral majority and one day in class theology. Class student brought time magazine. And it had jerry falwell on the cover here. We were in california. Twenty one twenty two years old with this is our experience of evangelicalism. This golden glowing sort of liberationist evangelicalism. And we just laughed. We thought jerry follows like a fool. We couldn't believe that anybody believed any of it and the professor who knew better the same guy tatis liberation theology. He was from missouri and so he said well. You know california's a little different. And he said there are people who are locals. All over america. Who will agree with jerry. Falwell way more than they'd agree with you. And what falwell presented was an idea of jesus as lord over and ordered universe and the more that he talked in the more that people follow him who talked. It was very easy to analyze what they thought the problem was. And that is the problem with. American society was the people had gotten out of their place. They had set the divinely. Structured order of things and the way to get america back to being god's west chosen land chosen people Was to reinstate this order in the order. Of course man i can recite if asians five and my sleep was found in a fijian's five it was you know men women children and then whatever you wanna call that workers slaves servants. They tried to address it up at first. Didn't want to call it. Slaves but later on. I hear people actually refer to that those people as slaves and make arguments for a reinstatement of slavery which shocked me to my core. So they wanted this pyramid shaped structure. And that jesus would be the lord at the top of that and that the the law that would govern us would not just be the constitution but it would also be biblical law and so what happened right there in that crack in time. That was my senior year in college. Interestingly enough so. I'm watching this. You know like this really idealistic. Radical young evangelical and they're retu- ideas of lordship one was jesus the lord of the household setting table for all the guests and the other was jesus the lord of the universe who demanded obedience order and would claim his authority over all and at the time. Me and my friends. We thought that the table is gonna win. And by the time we graduated from college oscar romero had been murdered by right wing. Death squad no salvador and jerry. Falwell was at ronald reagan's inauguration and that moment sat up. What would become you know. I think a fight. With an evangelical religion on a grander scale and slowly but surely the lord of the household got pushed out the door and it got replaced by this powerful warrior king. Jesus i think that the natural trajectory of that now now that i mean once i realized that there were these two visions of lordship and that i literally lived through it and i literally watched develop. I remember my heart being ripped out when that time magazine came into the classroom and all of the stuff that happened along the way. Because i ran into those same people again when they kicked me out of college. But that that idea of lordship would win and it became evangelicalism at least eighty percent of it. And that's the Zachary to trump and it makes perfect sense then so the morals of the the secular ruler who kind of sitting there right under..

"I can't figure out why anybody would do that. And so i kind of a change alex. Well my friends at least have an excuse. They were born there. You know but i picked it. And so i went back in. I thought you know what was that. Fifteen year old girl. Like why did she choose that church. What was it and guess what it was. It was about hospitality. It was about being part of a community that new it story and could tell stories both of your own spiritual life and of the bible and it was about connecting people to better spiritual practice deeper spiritual practices. This is what the evangelical church does. Well write a so. It's about learning how to read the bible and learning how to pray and learning how to share my faith in the world and all these kinds of things and so those are the same three things that later i would run into at the liberal church santa barbara but it was in this evangelical package and so all of a sudden i realized. Oh my gosh well. That's why liked it. They gave me a home when i was a hurt. Fifteen year old girl and what does does a young teenager one. Besides a home. And then i went to evansville local college and boy. Did i love that. Because that was about studying theology for the first time we had this renegade professor who was very young and i think that he might have been the very first ever evangelical theology profit anywhere in the united states to teach a class liberation theology. So we're sitting in a class and evangelical college and we're learning about james cone and oscar romero and gustavo gutierrez. And it's like this is not standard evangelical fair and so we're getting all stirred up about the kingdom of god is among the poor and the preferential option of the poor and we decide as a group of students that were going to go. And we're going to do something about it. And so we. We started a street ministry in santa barbara and that was amazing. We thought well that's not that hard. We're just kind of going in chicago. Santa barbara how tough is santa. barbara street ministry. You know so. We start going down in mexico where we did environmental cleanup and we were building an orphanage and we were working with churches to take care of the needs of the children in these little impoverished villages and all throughout ensenada and so that was an eye opening experience. I'll never forget when you know. There's like twenty probably and we drove into this one village and the village was made out of tires. And i asked the person who's with me the translator. So what's going on here. And he said oh this village he said. This is american trash. American store their old tires over the border in san diego. And it's the only building material that these people have. They go pick up tires in the back of their pickup trucks. And they come here and they build their houses out of our trash and you know when you're twenty and you see that it just the rock your world especially if you're from southern california where it should money growing on trees you know so. We all sort of became these theory. Radical pacifist environmentally concerned. Tepelea committed christians where we understood that. Jesus set a table in the world. And that the lordship of jesus was really being the one who was at the head of the table and then invited everyone to dine is that was what lord was. And this is where the political question starts getting answered that was in the late nineteen seventies and so we're doing our thing traveling. The world been christian radicals reading sojourner magazine. We started an alternative dorm for the vegetarians on campus..

"So eight hundred eighty one signature so far it's probably close to a thousand now is pretty remarkable. In the last thing I'll say is about-face has a nominative and asked me to serve as one of their kind of lead spokesman on this campaign. And the and there are a lot of other folks as or more qualified. Do that particularly folks of color. In the organization and I'll just say that. I was flattered and humbled by their choice to ask me I think that it demonstrates some faith in me, but more so the idea that we wanna try to reach out to folks who might not otherwise agree with us, sometimes relatively clean cut spokesperson. Might seem like it's acts to achieve that, but I will say that regardless of whether that was any of the motivation on things that stands out about face until largest veterans pieces, especially, the younger generation of veterans space is the intersectional nature of what we do, and it's about solidarity is about what the assassinated archbishop in front of the poor and El, Salvador Oscar Romero who's recently been sainted by Pope Francis. What he called accompaniment, which is really just a willingness to stand beside, not necessarily try to lead, but try to be a good shepherd, and also will shepherds a bad word. That's kind of like leading try to be supporter of. The marginalized and about facists on that repeatedly, and we're seeing it now, and it's. Why are my veterans gear out on the street? Because what I'm saying is no, I don't I'm not trying to make this into antiwar protests, but what I am trying to do is draw connections between what these people are seeing on the ground, and what I've seen overseas, but also to show that. That those of us who are involved in other seemingly discreet, but not actually movements like antiwar are here for you? We're with you. We're not leading you on not the White Messiah out there I actually try to step step back as much as possible as I think we ought to in this moment and reflect on our own blind spots as as white man but. You know. Accompaniment and solidarity is important and about-face was standing rock like let's not forget that about face and this new young post nine eleven anti war veteran movement has been intersectional from the I. It's inspiring. It's scares. The powers that be and I will end my point here by saying. Something is afoot, folks. Within our military ranks something profound. There's a foot. I don't know where it ends, but I am hopeful about this moment, and the solidarity has shown, and and it does. Go beyond just the lefties you know it goes beyond those of us who read Trotsky and it goes to the Libertarians in movements like bring our troops home, who we don't agree about a lot of things we may not even agree everything about the protest, but. You know there is a wide range of veterans who are skeptical of the warfare state, and they They geographically span from the mountain West where that Libertarian Organization bring our troops. Home is kind of situated all the way to. The more far left organizations and I think we probably fall on the left side, so the point is, this is a broad movement geographically physically Ansari, really in a certain sense and. I'm just proud to be the smallest part of it, and I think the Pod, and and those industries are doing our best to contribute. Yeah, that's my last thought on military. It's it's incredible. It's it's it's I'm so proud! I'm just so I'm literally I was sometimes. I WanNa cry when I read stuff like post by Britney our stuff from about-face. It's great stuff and I'm glad that you brought up the Light Mezzo so cool I'm so happy for you, dude. That's really great. I feel like the three of us are. Sis Straight White Dude's. And so we? I think we do a good job of acknowledging privilege. and. There's always more to learn. There's always more to. Acknowledge and I like my hope for humanity that we just get into that space of especially white people like we just get into that space of wanting to learn and then being uncomfortable like with with some of the things that we may hold. And it's not. Like. It's I. Think it's it's wrong. If you learn about something and then are willing, it willfully ignorant afterwards if you are willing to just say Oh. This is a problem, but. It's not it doesn't affect me or I'm not personally involved in this. So, what does it matter like that's? That's the attitude that apathetic attitude that needs to change. And and I feel like we. We try our best here. You know because we have this platform. Being veterans know we try our best to like. Speak out and I know. We talk about this all the time. I know that we really want to have a person of color on our pod. Just because it would be nice to have a different perspective, so if there's anybody out there that wants to be like. Any female any people of Color. Anybody wants to be a part of our pod like please don't hesitate to reach out to us to ask like. We want to hear other people's voices. So. Yeah I think Henry. Do you have anything before we close out? No, no, no I, think I'm I think I'm good? Well let me just you know. Be the. insufferable and for us, Leo Year just kind of close out by saying. You know to quote the Great East Coast Rapper and by the way rap was better before folks I'm sorry it stopped bits, not mattering in the late ninety S, and I'm just directly cracked about that To quote gnaws one love to our brothers and sisters who are out there in antiwar movement, and then also in the non veteran community and. In about-face those of us who were like paticularly active daily are checking in as you mentioned enery every day on our threads, and just showing support and a lot of folks are struggling. With the. kind of flashback PTSD aspect. You know when you get. Tear gassed by your own government and you're walking around Kansas City or Washington. DC or Baltimore candidate will say to harm. Baltimore looks like Baghdad it. It's bringing up. People are sacrificing a lot of our brothers and sisters out there in the antiwar movement who are showing solidarity are really sacrificing of because it's very difficult. It brings up a lot of bad memories to be back in a war zone, and that's what it felt like especially. Especially, the first weekends and I just want to say that we really do generally love you. Guys if you take nothing else out of this just like take care of each other check on each other and be kinds like it's the simplest thing in the world like I tell my kids that don't care. If you agree with me on, everything would love you. It'd be a little like you know neo Marxist but. Take care of one another and be kinds. It's the simplest thing where you grounded in religion and the New Testament or secular sainthood, just behind one another man. These are tough times. We gotTa Watch out and I'm just so proud of everybody it's it's amazing. Thank you. Thanks.

"A president they come into my garage and we have a conversation about all the big stuff in life go check it out WTF with Marc Maron right here on I heart radio tell your smart device to play WFLA on I heart radio this is news radio WFLA aspect this is the daily dive weekend edition I'm Oscar Romero's and I'm running down some of the top stories of the week don't forget to check out the daily dive Monday through Friday for more news without the noise it has been quite some time that many states have implemented their stay at home orders and right now the quarantine fatigue is real researchers analyzing smartphone data are finding that more Americans are venturing out despite the state home orders work trips have remained about the same the personal trips are starting to increase and sore trips between county and state lines there's also some confusion estates announced plans to open back up something that they can start using up on staying at home the U. S. is never ordered so many to stay at home all at once and we might be seeing the limits that citizens are willing to handle for more in quarantine fatigue we'll talk to Katherine Shaver reporter at The Washington Post they've been looking at the location data from our smartphone apps in basically on any day when a phone travels or the bile they assume that that phone is not staying home that day that it paid a trip and they were looking at this since middle of March when you stay at home orders began to take effect the data is aggregated it's anonymous or not tracking where you and your spouse artificially going but as they started to look at it the percentage of people staying home with a percentage of their phone staying home grew gradually for several weeks after in March and then a kind of plateaued at about thirty three to thirty four percent of the country on average the what really worried him was start the week of April thirteenth they noticed that the percent started to decline and in fact by the end of the week April seventeenth it dropped as thirty one percent on average nationwide so the really weird about this shift in momentum and the reason they're really worried it is it's not like people started going back to work the percentage of trips that were non work trips pretty much stayed the same but the number of trips to keep or taking for personal reasons going out to the store to be complete and thriving out to a park to take a walk those are their trips that went up and so that's what really concerned about what it was to shift and tell us people who apparently are getting restless or lonely and really starting to venture out more and is pretty noteworthy I mean really this is the first pandemic that many of us have experienced that you know everybody always goes back to the Spanish flu of nineteen eighteen that's so long ago and really this hasn't been done in the modern era nobody knows how much people will tolerate there's other countries that have a lockdown orders that have happened before but the United States doesn't really do that and we don't know how much people will take what I thought was really interesting was the public health experts I spoke with said we know how long people are willing to maybe stay quarantined to their house like during H. one and once the people require change during sars wants for people were quarantined usually that's for about fourteen days to twenty one days backs and those are usually such targeted quarantines that local health officials can check it with folks every day and feeling just a reminder to stay isolated to keep going and that's how they prevent quarantine fatigue in those situations but you're right nobody has any idea how Asian wide scale like you don't have somebody call you every day at St keep going nobody knows how long people are going to be willing to put up with cabin fever for the greater good orchard protect my family so they're very intrigued by all of this and what do they need to do to kind of keep people going into this extraordinary circumstances it's so tough even for health officials and local government officials it would be almost impossible probably have the wrong way to approach it if they said you know what guys were really gonna be locked down until June that's why we're getting these kind of well the orders extended until may fifteenth the order X. extended to may thirtieth because if you just say we're gone for two months people are gonna start rebelling initially and then beyond that you know you see some other states starting to reopen thing there could be a little bit of that kind of jealousy thing almost like why can they go out and play and we can't so I'm sure you're gonna start seeing this a lot more everywhere and the confusion that sells all also some governors are starting to say well we're formulating those plans we will start opening soon and people are probably taking that as well I can start using my own restrictions now I'm wearing my face mask let's just go out now I spoke with one public health expert who said it's kind of like a kid right before Christmas you start hearing about governors talking about re opening economies and people start thinking what really how bad could it be put on my face mask all stay six feet away from people but they say they're really concerned because the more people are venturing out the more likely they are to be in places like grocery stores or drugstores and you can do all you can to try to limit your exposure but you are still increasing the risk of transmission beyond that it takes a little bit of time to gather the data and then crunch the numbers we won't know for a couple weeks let's say if these people that are started moving a little bit early might have come down with corona virus increased number of cases or hospitalizations or deaths we won't know that for some time as well the medical experts I talked to said they're very curious about whether the increase in travel is going to lead to an increase in hospitalizations and deaths they say they can't really look at whether it's eastern increase success cases overall because testing is still sober but it that that's not really a reliable indicator but it's going to take at least several weeks to start saying if more people end up in the hospital or more people and tectonic and then they might be able to look back and say Hey that's what that county started to help people central court that's without state lifted restrictions of people started going out about Katherine Shaver reporter at The Washington Post thank you very much for joining us thanks for having me another big thing another big thing happening this week restaurants in Georgia Tennessee and anchorage Alaska have begun to re open and all eyes will be on them to see how the rollout goes in Georgia the state government has issued thirty nine guidelines at restaurants must follow including wearing face masks screening employees and patrons for signs of illness and even sign in sheets if the info is needed later for contact tracing for more on how some restaurants are beginning to open their doors we'll talk to Chloe Sorvino writer at Forbes I think the markers are scared scale I think so Georgians are coming out so to support their restaurants that are been opened eyes focused much of my recording on what waffle house been doing because they play such an interesting role in Georgia in Georgia politics it says a lot of cult following diner chain twenty four hours has this rowdy at night in the firemen but it also has this reputation of opening up very quickly after crisis after disaster and that she'd been headquartered there for sixty five years and the long time kind of patriarch of the family that owns actually one of the from what I understand the only restaurant representative on that twenty person committee that governor Brian Kemp was using him quite the guidelines three open an extensive interview with me Joe talked a lot about how it was so if you're if you're pushing for that from March to reopen I think you're seeing that and what's happening and how this is opening happened more quickly than at some restaurant owners or we get a lot of orders either this is under the Georgia might have realized the governor I guess at all thirty nine guidelines that restaurants have to follow I'm assuming obviously masks and gloves things like that so what are some of these guidelines the way things are gonna be changing for the restaurants bars aren't going to really exist that post corona world either world buffet is in good order B. Riley they're being decided state by state so in Georgia they're doing a per capita limit five per square foot for each restaurant so actually if it's only ten patrons per five hundred square feet in the dining room there can be no cell service anymore so you can't pour your own drink you can't pay your ketchup on your hot dog anymore they're gonna be encouraging anything even as small as having filled or captain beforehand not pre setting tables these are going to be very very specific day but you know I have to thank there are a fair amount of expert to say no to these guidelines don't go far enough and are questioning how safe this will continue to be an exaggeration you mentioned a little bit about the political part of this and there was one of the restaurants there in Georgia in Atlanta based restaurant called the original hot dog factory who said they were going to open up but they got so much blowback from the community they were fielding calls from local officials who said if you're moving a little too fast so they actually didn't open up after all and even early reports from what's been going on there's been very very limited patrons visiting some of these restaurants so far I've heard that there's a little bit of backlash if you are going out right now I mean it depends waffle house has told me that their customers are thrilled to be back in girl to be feeling that taste of home I also know awful house obviously really located on these key highways and I'm sure there are a lot of truckers right now that are bringing food transporting it across America and the supply chain who are happy that when they get to Georgia to go to some of these locations and have some rest but I think there are a lot of communities that are still very concerned I don't know if this is when one of the Georgia guidelines but I think it was in one of the Alaska guidelines where they said that a restaurant's gonna have to have a log of every customers first and last name and contact phone so that you know if they need any contact tracing or something that has to be done after they have that information The Washington Post I guess spoke to Hugh actions and you know you see them on top chef is major so he has a bunch of restaurants there in Georgia you know he said I can't have people I employ and work with views as sacrificial lambs and all this you know what if somebody gets sick so I mean that's just this other part do these restaurants have a liability in this you know could somebody sue them later on down the line if they contracted cove in nineteen at the restaurant what we've seen from what's been re opening around Hong Kong for example is it exactly that the restaurants that have apps will be I think think of this transition a little bit easier our because so much of this will want to be seen if you are gonna have to go into a restaurant when you take your name no sign a waiver and give information in case I'm in that restaurant was later found out to be a quick aside wrestling you have to be contacted these are really serious concerns I just want to highlight that you know for the workers this is a really really difficult decision to have to make my dealings with model has yet they tell me that their workers are really struggling and they really want to be coming back to work but at the same time there are a lot of other people and I'm talking to just aren't ready working during I think you're seeing that across the food system across for that matter matter that you know the front lines in terms of the plant workers either Testud restaurant delivery services Chloe Sorvino writer at Forbes thank you very much for joining us thank you so much.

"I don't know how Hawaii L L Roy E. The God who Sees Haggar Response to God <hes> in this extraordinary exchange with God because her name means foreign thing in biblical Hebrew you say I did not know that that was really her. Story is really amazing because she's she's a slave from Egypt for for Sarah of of Abraham and Sarah they have you know an enslaved person in their keep and she's treated very poorly. She's used as a you know to have a son so that this prophecy could be fulfilled. Let God's promise can be fulfilled because they're going about their own way and then she's just tossed but God doesn't <hes> forget her and God blesses her <hes> this was a really powerful part of your book that <hes> maybe one of my favorite parts and maybe you can talk about Haggar as a foreigner and the special place God has for her. Yes I love the story of Hagar Gar and I learned so much from <hes> black female theologians about Hagar <hes> they have taken on Hagar to symbol because she was believed to be like a dark skinned person as well then African person so the story of Hagar to me is deeply meaningful because here you have someone I you have Abraham and Sarah who you would think having been mistreated and having lived in fear in Egypt would now turn around around with a foreigner living in their household and would be kind would be you know a welcoming but instead they treat Hagar with this in the same way that they were treated <hes> essentially which says an unfortunate part of the human condition it seems like <hes> and so Hagar arrives. She's a young woman. She is foreign. She's enslaved some versions. The Bible says she's a a made but in any case she is <hes> forced to bear child <hes> that that won't be considered her own. It'll be considered Abraham and Sarah's Cassandra things she's too old. The net God may not come through so let me just take care of this on my own and then she's mistreated <hes> so there are biblical scholars who believe that translation actually says that Sarah Oppressed Sir and so hey runs away into the desert and and that's where the story really takes an unexpected turn because this person who was considered who'd be considered so insignificant significant right in this ancient world an enslaved woman a dark skinned woman a young woman God appears to her a messenger of God appears and has a special message for her and the way that this message got appears to her is exactly the way a messenger of God appears to marry the mother of Jesus. It's the exact same structure you have presenting themselves else to her promising her future promising her. You're GONNA give birth. It's going to be a son a wanted to name him. This exactly what was told <hes> to marry in in the New Testament and so Hagar Hagar returns <hes> to to her oppressors and then runs away again later after the child is born and in is growing and then Sarah has her own child <hes> all of a sudden. She's not wanted in the household anymore so she runs away a second time and God appears to her again. I mean it's so momentous that God would choose to appear to this person that everybody in the world at that time would say this. This is not a significant person this one. Why would you know why would God do this and yet God sees her and God says you're going to see your son Grow Up? He's GonNa marry from among your own people. You're going to prosper. You're you're going to have a future. You're going to have hope and she does you know God liberates her and in fact her son Mary's from among her own people so to me the story of Hagar I mean it's painful to read when got asked her to return turn to this household but the end is so redemptive and so triumphant and for me I likened it so much to the story of my <hes> my grandmother my leader that I talk about in my book who was undocumented wanted all but the last five years she was alive and she worked as a domestic in a wealthy American household <hes> she never got past like the sixth grade in school and she really was not anyone who was seen <hes> in our culture as a matter of fact her desire was not to be seen right to be remained under the radar because when you're undocumented that's a really critical critical thing and and yet she was the mother the spiritual mother of our family she was the one who was resilient. She was the one who was strong. You know she was the one who cared for us and she was. He's the one who taught us about Jesus and and yet so unseen in so unimportant in the culture but so critical in our lives of faith and I just think about that family that my grandma my work for who lived in this mansion you know and in in Los Angeles and how they never saw her they never saw her as as this <hes> spiritual mother they never saw her for the value that she had in the world and all that for me. I think that there are so many people like that in our culture after I a friend of mine read my books she said you know after I read a book I started I was walking now to the Metro and I saw a man who looked like he was Latino and he was washing the windows outside of this like you know skyscraper building and I just wondered about his life and I wonder who he was an who the people were that he cared for and <hes> what kind of education he had and the gifts that he had to offer the talent the faith who was T- you know and I think God God sees all of that even though we don't have is it seems that God does see all of that just as God saw Hagar in her oppression in her exploitation and so the story was really critical to me and that's why I took the title from there because I find such a powerful story in a time when immigrants are being demonized <hes> on the the rhetoric around immigration is so violent and there's so much injustice around detention. The separation of families is like God sees not only does God's see these immigrants and he values them and he endows them with dignity but God sees us in our oppression you know in our contribution to these systems so yeah sorry very long answer to that knows wonderful on page. One hundred six you write that Professor Richard Beck says we don't show hospitality Baotou anyone especially to the immigrant to be like Jesus we show hospitality to welcome Jesus and you know it's true that that Jesus in his family were were actually immigrants at one point to Egypt to just like Abraham and others when when things got up people did go to Egypt whether it was for famine or <hes> for some kind of escape and lots of people have been immigrants even the the holy family <hes> I think that's easy easy to to think you know Jesus was like an American or something but that but his family I had to flee and and rely on the the help and hospitality of of others and before nurse and a foreign land <hes> I I think sometimes we think that's you know that happens elsewhere. It's other people's problems. It's other things it's not doesn't hit so close to home but actually if we're Christians had it is home the the foreigner is the the story of Jesus is the story of Christianity and and the welcoming Jesus part <hes> has to be the first thing we we think of when we think of <hes> our brothers than sisters who are refugees were immigrants their Jesus. They're they're bringing us the Gospel exactly one of the things that was really pivotal for you you mentioned on page Sixty Eight <hes> Oscar Romero of Salvador create a pivotal shift for you and there's <hes> a quote that you have in here that he mentioned and I'd like you to speak to after I read read this little quote hopefully not to to bumbling way but <hes> about the effect that that reading about his life and understanding what he did how that affected how you see your work doc and he and also the the role of the church he writes <hes> or he said a church that does not provoke crisis a gospel that does not disturb a word of God that does not rankle a word of God that does not touch the concrete sin of the society in which it is being proclaimed. What kind of Gospel is that just Nice pious considerations that bother nobody yes Romero was something yeah he was very modern day saint <hes> I believe yeah I was really deeply? Moved by historian was one of the First Times Times that I saw the Gospel is something appealing and attractive that I wanted to be a part of even though it took a while for me to get there after that <hes> I think that you know when I became a follower of Jesus which in college is really where it happened where I finally kind of understood more and was able to actively walk into that I always wondered about this process discipleship up this becoming like Jesus student of Jesus right a disciple because it just seemed like I was becoming a disciple in order to sort of be a better person to not think bad thoughts and not be greedy and not be selfish. <music> but it didn't seem to really impact the world in any way this discipleship and I felt that was really limiting. It just seemed like Oh so I'm just going to curse less yes and if he were bad thoughts and you know leave leftovers for my house May and that that's that's the end goal of my discipleship. Just didn't seem to me to make any sense like why would God care so much just about those things and I think what Romero did for me is. He really expanded my understanding of discipleship that it can't just be your own pious considerations. It has to impact picked the world that you live in and that's what he did. He he impacted the world and Oughta people point to the Liberation Theologians in Latin America during this period and CEO all this period was a failure. You know these yes they. They didn't bring on systemic change and basically they were all killed or exiled out of the church because you know Pope John Paul being a Polish <hes> Pope who had lived under the rule of Communism of course was fearful where these priests where he thought these priests were heading which was toward socialism. There's just a perfect storm of a lot of bad things coming together but essentially I don't think it was a failure I I think that Romero taught us so much and the fact that he stood with the poor and the oppressed of El Salvador the fact that we're still speaking his name and talking about the issues that he highlighted. I think it shows this ongoing work of God. You know I think in the West were really impatient. We really live in a sort of microwave oven kind of culture where we want things instantly but I think what we see in the Life Romero is that we have to trust the God is at work and the things we're not seeing our understanding in the way that it seems as if things couldn't be worse the God is at work and this is what the people who followed God died in the Bible believed in right they believed in a promise that most of them never saw fulfilled and this is what I love about the story of Romero that he never abandoned the sacraments he didn't abandon the things that that draws into God's presence but he also called for Justice and worked for it he also stood side by side with the poor and the marginalized and he didn't see himself. It's different from them. He saw like our struggles tied together. Because we're human beings you know in essentially he saw God in them.

"On page one hundred eighty three. This is how I I saw on senior Oscar Romero from a distance over the heads of the congregation in an unfinished cathedral in his white vestments before a spray of microphones giving a homily ending with a litany of the names of those disappeared or found dead that week some of whom were in coffins lined up at the altar with windows cut into the lids to reveal their faces except the mutilated in chefs of sunlit dust sent from the louvers of the two bell towers. We stood shoulder to shoulder women in scarves or Mantilla's men holding their straw hats. Children's sitting along the altar rail as the homily was broadcast two thousands of radios throughout the country to machine shops dagoes to pick up trucks and the battery operated radios in the villages when his homily giving guidance and counsel came to an end Monsignore walked toward the coffins with an Espera Gillam sprinkling holy water on the dead. And then he walked through the congregation, and we parted to make a path for him the water sprinkling down on our heads has it had on the coffins later. I would understand that here the dead and the living were together and those who stood alive before him. He was flexing in advance. A question that occurs to me as I listened to exit beautifully. You've met you discovered. The passion of your life in Salvador. Of course, you've traveled many other places in foreign witness to many other things, but you also discussed her the love of your life. Man, you married in our married tasting. And with whom you've raised your son and. Maybe you could just talk a little bit about. Who he is end your intersection because for marrows sort of part of that. There's an episode in the book where I was received a phone call and could I please come to the seminary in the capital because several hundred compassi no had taken refuge. They're running away from the military, and they had been wounded some of them and Monsignor decided to create an ad hoc refugee camp there and allow them in. Hoping interesting that sanctuary would be respected. But really they were afraid it might not be. So what they wanted was for me to be a western journalist, and to go there and stand very visibly in front of the people and be writing and taking notes and taking pictures, and so on and unbeknownst to me someone else had received similar phone call and also showed up to be a western journalist. And that they we regarded each other a bit warily this other western journalists. And I and he thought I was a Catholic nun. And I thought he worked for the CIA. So we weren't that interested in each other. And but we went through the whole thing of the army arriving in the trucks, and it was really horrifying, and we stood out in front of that seminary taking notes and taking pictures and market, Leslie the army then began to leave in their trucks. So I didn't see him again for several years we met again. And when I was asked to write the text for a book of photographs without I'll sell the door, and we would recognize each other from the seminary day. And at one point, you know, this is in the book of how we discovered that. We were in fact, the noun and the CIA so that was Harry, and Harry was a photographer and still is and. So was it very he had gone all the way through the uprising against the most Nicaragua. And then came to sell it or so we had great deal of experience in Central America. And you're right in the book that you learned his experience through his photographs, and he learned of yours through your poems and the way that you spoke to each other. And there's intense two weeks when you were writing the introduction to that book on this like Patti Smith, Robert Mapplethorpe moment, you know. This are funny.

"We lead local live from the KFI twenty four hour newsroom. I'm Debra Mark. John and Ken show. John kobylt and Ken chiampou KFI AM six forty. Sure is it sure is well next hour. We'll get a report on a story. We just picked up on last week and has come to a happy ending with an Orange County woman. Who went to Uganda for the trip of a lifetime to look at the guerrillas up close, and then was taken captive and held for ransom. There was some kind of negotiated settlement. And she and the driver and her group were both released just yesterday this story ended and apparently she's in fine shape. We'll find out more from ABC news for KFI in about an hour here on the John and Ken show to see what happened there because it's not clear who paid it. The New York Times is reporting that the tour company paid for her release. They're not half a million dollars. Nobody's gonna talk because nobody wants nobody wants to feed this monster. To go away. No one's gonna come out and say, yeah, I paid the half billion. Because like, let's say the tour company did then more their clients are going to get kidnapped because they they set a precedent. That's that's why Mike Pompeo the secretary of state said the governments are paying because then there's going to be hundreds of people getting kidnapped all over the world because they know the US will come through with a check. But the problem with that is whoever kidnapped her and Uganda knows who paid them. They'll go to do it again, if they think they can get more money. You're just saying they don't want the store to get bigger and go all over the world, right? Because because there would there could be thousands of groups willing to pull a kidnapping if they know it's going to pay. So you you you shut down the publicity of it as best you can. And you never admit to it. You certainly don't admit to a big payment. And maybe it wasn't a big payment. Who knows? It does the negotiated. We don't know. Whether it was that the the lowest or even less local guys yelling, give me half million. Maybe made they could yell that all they want, but they negotiated downwards. They they have leveraged because they have the body, but they don't have unlimited leverage. And there is there's never unlimited money to pay for this sort of thing. So I imagine they negotiated for less than that. We'll find out more next hour here on KFI Gavin Newsom, the governor of California all of three months, and he got tired and had to take ten day vacation part of it is to go to El Salvador. I know that's right. Go on vacation every time. And there's a somber picture of him. He's writing a note in a book of the tomb of Saint Oscar Romero at the metropolitan cathedral in send Salvador, El Salvador, yest- time is staff probably took to find just the right setting for promotional photo where he could look very pensive and very introspective as he signs this book of messages surrounded by what looks like religious figures that establishes if this happened by accident, they're they're trying to craft them into some sort of compassionate, diplomatic statesman. But there's always been a struggle for who of the California. Politicians wants to be the biggest and the stronger, stand tight Trumper. And I think this guy wants to March to the head of that that pack because Harris is sort of trying it running for president. But I think Gavin Newsom believes that his role to play since California's its own country, then we're anti-trump country. So I'm going to take the biggest anti Trump message. I can to another part of the word tell everybody there. You are. Welcome does it seem. I just get the sense that all this is getting exhausted. The the anti-trump screaming because now that he beat this Russian Hoke story. Just feels like, you know, a lot of the air has gone out of this now. They. You have to camp you have to campaign on something that you and your party are going to do for the country and for people because I think he's he's campaigning on an open borders platform, that's what he's trying to tell everybody. Well that that that's a losing issue. I would think that gets you demolished in general election. Absolutely gets you demolish the most of the countries against open borders against it by about eighty twenty. I don't understand the issues that always democratic candidates are wannabes are going with because there are all kinds of all kinds of nutty stuff yesterday. Bernie Sanders was calling for imprisoned felons to be given the right to vote. Why would you want on that? To get the imprisoned felon imprisoned. You know, it's like banning the cows. And families would appreciate any airplanes and reparations, and let's get rid of the electoral college, and Bob it's like all this wacky stuff that there's no constituency for what the reason Trump is succeeding is. Because what did you do it focused on on on the economy trade unemployment, and boom, we got we got a booming. The playbook is not running against Trump right now. They're running against each other. And you run to the left if you want to win the democratic primaries, that's the playbook just like four years ago. It was everybody run to the right win the Republican primary for Trump was not the right guy, though. He wasn't a lot of the report immigration. He was on talk shows in anybody. Yeah. And the trade deals I would say he was a number of issues. It seemed like he was to people. Although we thought he was just talking common. So I thought he was running against the Republican party because the Republican party engineered a lot of those trade deals and the Republican party engineered a lot of those immigration deals. I thought he was going running against both parties, but there's no constituency for this far left wing stuff. And if you elect one of these people in a primary, they're gonna get crushed most Democrats don't believe in all this all this crap. Most Democrats are normal people. They've got moderately different views, but not extremist views. I don't know if you're if you're marketing, you don't market to the loudest six percent of the country, you're marketed to the mainstream people the normal people all the normal Democrats. I just find this preposterous Newsom chose El Salvador because of the large volume of people from the country seeking legal asylum in the US ranking second only to China, he also cited a list of this his familiarity with the Salvadoran population in San Francisco where it was mayor familiarity with the El Salvador, and you see I don't care you think he'd be cares. How familiar is without Salvadorans most California's don't nothing against them. And they're they're fine people, but he's the governor of Californians he's not the governor of Al in foreign policies. Not a president taking. An ambassador trip is he familiar with the the Americans who live in Orange County, for example. Is he never talks about them? He doesn't visit them doesn't seem to care what their issues are. Is he interested with the problems that go on in Los Angeles? We we we've got all kinds of insanity going on sixty thousand people sleeping in the streets and traffic jams that go on for twenty miles at a shot. I care about American stuff. What about the excessive taxes being tell the current about El Salvador, yoursel, Salvador leaders handle that that's their responsibility. You can't fix that. God when we come back. We'll listen to him in his own words explaining why he thinks he needs to be Salvador. We're talking about California governor Gavin Newsom out of the country. John and Ken show.

We'll have to bring to you in the one o'clock hour about a mother who lied and said that guy at a mall tried to duct her daughter looks like it was all for social media. Another example of doing things for social media likes and hits and praise. We gonna make me mad found out. Some more stuff about Gavin Newsom. Really? It's gonna make me tell me, well, the governor of the state of California. In name only, apparently because he's busy doing other things. He has been traveling to El Salvador. I'm sorry. What business does California business goes on in El Salvador, like businesses are governor have? He's only been here for three months. He's only been governor for three months, his he solved all California's problems. I don't know. I don't know. Maybe he's got his finger on the pulse of the great trade pipeline between California, and El Salvador, he was the tomb of Saint Oscar Romero or you're gonna make me mad here when he said, how do you understand California without understanding all the diverse cultures that make it? The most diverse state in the world's most diverse democracy. It's fundamental. It seems to me to governing state. That's why I'm here in my first month's not at the end of my term. That's the part. That matters is the timing of trip tail Salvador. He says that there are nearly six hundred eighty thousand Salvadoran immigrants in California. Okay. So there's that that I understand that makes perfect sense. I think we should point out. Once again, you mentioned there's forty million people in California, by the way. So you know to to home in on six hundred eighty thousand of us specific group is. Not a great percentage of Californians. Where did you say he was when you when when he was he of Saint Oscar Romero, nobody knows Oscar Romero, right? I mean terms of his importance to the L Salvadoran civil war. I not not nobody does. Nobody does. I would say even out of the six hundred eighty thousand Salvadoran immigrants who live in in the state of California, not many of Gavin Newsom was at that that tomb and he'd knelt there. And he prayed he wrote a message in a guestbook besides the sarcophagus, right? Yeah. There are great pictures, by the way of him standing next to the mayor of San Salvador with this giant sarcophagus in front of him and his wife. I'm sorry. The first partner of the state of California kneeling praying, and I think actually there was an assembly woman Wendy career. I think she was also there there was another woman sitting there kneeling with Jennifer Siebel Newsom praying Oscar big deal in those parts he was an archbishop. He was shot and killed while praying at a hospital chapel in nineteen eighty after speaking out against El Salvador's military dictatorship as they were. I mean that was on the cusp of their civil war in the early eighties. Right. He's been canonized. My the pope. Yeah. Here's here's my question. My question. Avenue. Born in sixty eight sixty seven orange sixty-seven avenue. Some would have been. Thirteen years old when Oscar Romero was gunned down while praying at a hospital chapel. Gavin Newsom says that he remembers expressing political opinions about Oscar Romero, the civil war in El Salvador at the kitchen table when he was a kidnapping open San Francisco. First of all he grew up in Roth. Okay. And I don't think thirteen year old in Roth now has. Sort of international news placed in front of them. Why do you have to why do people feel like they have to? They knew everything about everything. He's so woke and diverse that his diverse woken est shows that when he was thirteen he'd knew who Oscar Romero was and how. It understanding the Salvadoran civil war shaped his childhood. Shaped. His childhood now listen on the off chance that he was a kid who was hyper aware of current events. What does that mean? Be smart people can play baseball even people compla- baseball. I mean, he was a pretty good baseball player. He was suggesting that maybe a lot of his time was taken up by practices. I'm just thinking he wasn't worried about international politics. This is the that's the biggest nine of Bs. That's the thing that why do you lie about it? It's like it's like the li- pedals about growing up poor. He did not grow up poor. Do you? You're enough Gavin. You don't need your thirteen year old self does not need to be woke to the point of understanding the plight of Saint Oscar Romero like your enough. You don't have to just say things up the reason that he's there they described this. The governor's office described this as a fact-finding mission to figure out why is why are so many El Salvadoran people leaving their country and coming to the United States. Why is that that's a legitimate question can be answered you don't have to visit San Salvador to ask that. You don't have to spend my money to go ask that question. Because they're plenty of places. Here you could you could ask six hundred eighty thousand Salvadoran immigrants who currently live in the state of California invite them to the governor's mansion and ask them. Why did you come here? What is it? What was so bad about your life in El Salvador? And what can I do as the mayor of one St. in a country? What can I do to make sure that your relatives in their friends? Don't feel like they have to leave L south saw this written up with the headline of Gavin Newsom enters the world stage. No, he doesn't. Gavin Newsom did not just get the world's stage name recognition for going to El Salvador. No. And I. Means the world is aware of you. The world is not aware of Gavin Newsom. I do love that part of the story says that Newsome has positioned himself as a thorn in the side of the president. You know, what that reminds me of? It reminds me of jussie smollet telling me he comes hord at forty five. You set yourself up like that you see like that's the that's the name plate. You. Hang around your chest is I am thorn in the side of the president. That's what you've gotta do if you're a democrat in California. And that's what that's what they want a waste of oxygen that has become ways love this. What is this is? This is press. I think so good Lord in the end of this. Article new some has said he won't run for president in twenty twenty. Was that some was that a question we needed to answer? Right. He's doing you know what he's betting on. He's betting on a Trump reelection. So that he can run in twenty twenty four. That's what he's betting. Yep. That's his plan. All right. Coming up next. Here's a fun story. One person's trash. Another person's treasure classic, right? We have examples coming to us from San Francisco and the garbage of rich people with an accent. Thon. Oh. Channon? I don't know why I did that with an accent. Gary channel will continue Amy king. What's going on? What has press secretary?
