"Years or not and you know all these. The wedding is pointing ford. The marriage supper of the lamb. The kind of looking ahead to that horizon but also just looking at today. I think that's a question. I've found really helpful like are you. Can you be content being single today. And when i look today i mean maybe some women as the answer is no but for me often. It's like actually today's okay. I got a roof of my head's i've got job you know i've got. I've got plans this evening. Or whatever you know and my fears about single knicks about tomorrow or next weekend you know. I'm i gonna do next weekend when i'm on my. What am i going to do. In a year's time when experts. At who am i gonna spend my holidays with that kind of thing but yeah when i'm kind of in that thought spiral of what if what. If days in the future. I found it so helpful to just think kind of be content day can i rejoice in god's goodness to the today on if god is good to me today i trust him to be good to me tomorrow and i can trust them to provide. Why need and who. I need in the years ahead. Just like he's provided for me today. Such a kind of perspective was yeah. That was a missionary single missionary working kind of west africa. Who had address stash even group and that was the question she put to us. Kyw be content being singled today. And yeah. that's something that's stuck with me a long time. That's really good because although we have our our eyes set on eternity which is you know forever. I do think in so many areas whether it's singleness or child bear or job or whatever. It is our stress and frustration and worry comes from. Who am i going to go to that wedding with or will i do a thinks christmas. Or what will i do here or there and then the way you rephrased. It is so good because we'll just what is today. Look like and today feels great. You know. I'm sure let's be honest. There are some days that you don't feel content And then you have to work through that. But that's now but most days could you say you feel content content today about today today. I am asking you know. That'd be another day. But god's mercies new every morning and that's the other thing we arrive arrive at a point where we kind of okay content now for a straight line for the rest of my life right you know. It's lewis daily coming back to the lord and seeking him on what we need him. I wish she could write the book to tell us how to be contempt for the rest of our lives. Rachel because i mean we all need that. Because you're right. It doesn't work that way speaking up. Are you working on any projects.

"You got the show made a complete embarrassment myself a story. This is the things we need to know. What tv show was there's aired. So i think. I'm allowed to say about all as though as a question where there was like a question where the answer was noneya. Cs lewis and i got it wrong. And having said i worked in christian publishing there was a question where the answer was a christian book and i got it wrong so man and but about pursuing those goals but also really really diving into the local church and feeling satisfied. They're living this kind of non-glamorous life and that god calls us sometimes to just serve and serve our people and the difference in how that that truly can satisfy us. And i think that's the difference. Is we think these other things are going to satisfy things of our soul and there's nothing wrong with them but they won't satisfy soul you know and so living that monday my so. What was the top thing that you kinda struggled with in that season. He said he went through twelve different things. What was it for you Cheese him one and the other thing is that like i've just i've struggled with other thing since they've come they've not it doesn't didn't fix the problem right in the book. One hundred percent right s. rachel. I think struggled the most with loneliness jury in that season and just feeling like nobody really knew me or no one knew the kind of whole three sixty degrees so you know. I had some school friends. He remembered while i was when i was fifteen and i had some new friends who was more in tune with. I was doing day to day now. Hat lick friends. He kind of got what was going on in. The office. didn't really feel like a hot someone who saw the whole major and that was just an opportunity to really press into the truce. The load nice. You know that he alone can see the three sixty degrees. He knows when. I sit on when i rise in the words of psalm. Hugging as nine he descends my thoughts from fall. And so if i'm looking for someone to see this he's the one that sees it but also that friendships take time and i can look back on that time now and i can. I've got people in my life now. You got us put people in my life. And he's deepened friendships. United we kind of surface. Level friends back then a real genuine and deep friendships. Now and i guess just kind of reorienting our expectations in terms of just how much time and how much life it takes to kind of feel rooted in a place and feel connected with people. But you know the kind. That's good when you said we aren't in our expectations. Because i'm even thinking about this particular life that we're talking about and when you said you know i had worked friends that knew me here and college friends and people from high school and then church friends and family and all the things and it's like they have different parts of you and with the verse time in your life usually around the stage there. Are these different sections whereas you know my kids who are in high school. They do everything with the same friends. Go to school with them. They play football with them. They go to church with them and so it is new season and really figuring out. How friendships take time. And you know. I can just say as a woman who's older than that. That's still something that i'm learning. Is that friendships develop over time and learning and wanting to be known as hard hard work. What was another one of the things that you walk through in your book that you walk through with us. I think god has been really kind me in regards my singleness. I think not starts was also an issue. And i wrote the book. Yeah when i wrote the book my sister's getting married. And i just. I ruined the bridesmaid shopping by cry. And you have to tell us the story. Rachel what happened. We just we just like we both addresses and then we go home and then try to on now. I hate it. i was crying in. This fries may stress. I wasn't really crying. Because i hate the dress crying because i wasn't getting married and my sister was and yeah and it was just sort of bringing emotions to the full. But that was another instance. Where i think again. It's just that that sort of eternal perspective of this this next fifty.

"App. Virtually of another book that you wrote till you've been a part of tons of books but another one that i think is so interesting to call. Is this it. And i believe this came on early. Two thousand nineteen about the quarter life crisis and first of all. Can you just explain. There's new thing it's not new at all but what is called dubbed the quarter life crisis and explained to me why you wrote this book about that yes so the quilt crisis is kind of a. When you're in your twenties or early thirties. I knew kind of culture education. And you've got the other side and you're ready to take the world on and you know you may get your first job ever and you got a few years down the line and you're like is this being an adult is like oh this is not what i wanted it to be like you know and just feelings of kind of lost light. You're flowing through you. Don't know what next step to take kind of loneliness. You know kind of relationship problems. You know i'm going to get married. What am i going to find the one. Even all my friends and just kind of feeling unsettled and kind of unmortgaged in the world Asked how i describe it. So what did that look like for you like. What were the struggles that you all of a sudden went. Is this it that when you were in your late. Twenty s and. What did that look like for you. Personally i just remember this. One instant i so i was living in this kind of shad house way. The landlord like let ribs so we kind of have a revolving cast of different housemates and this one house. Who's just genuinely really terrifying. And so i really didn't like where i was living because i felt like i was always walking on eggshells around this girl and i wasn't really enjoying my job at that point because that's just sort of out of the role i was doing and wasn't sure what to do next but didn't have the confidence to fly for anything so i kind of felt stuck. I did at my church for kind of three or four years. And i thought that should be enough time to really feel like i belong here but didn't really feel connected with people in the way i wanted to and so i remember this one day and it was valentine's day i was single and i came home from work and i got in and i had like a run in with. It's kind of scary housemate. And i went to my car because that was the only could go and i saw my eyes out to my mom down. The fern was like i. So unhappy and the ad that was kind of the point of absolute. Is it. I kind of these. Different circumstances had come together. So what is that for that age group who hitting in that moment right there like what is the not the solution. But what is it looks like to persevere through these moments of. I don't know what to do with my life. I thought i'd be married by now. I'm dissatisfied with my job. I don't think i'm good at anything else. Like what is the kind of not that turning point by any means but what do we do to get through those moments. Yeah i think two truths that i kept going back to. As i was writing the book the book goes through twelve. Different of these issues and cat coming up on it was just this big view of eternity that life is short. An eternity is long and it's very easy to get swept up in. What now looks like or even the next fifty years look like but if we really believe that we're heading to this glorious future with the lord jesus family not going to sweat the next fifty years you know so there was kind of idea just kind of raising our is to another horizon and then just the importance of the local church. I think that was the other thing that coming up. Finding a sense of community sense of purpose. Knock kind of vocation in serving the local church and that is success even if does not what the world says is success. That is what god calls us to do. And he doesn't demand great things from us. He doesn't He calls us to just ordinary everyday. Faithfulness often it doesn't look glamorous you know often it looks like chasing after the toddler nursery but is eat foil in his sight the same time. He's given us gifts to stewart. And we wanna make good decisions on. I think often some of us just need help to be making steps forward Where we can and that's yeah. Why isn't godly mental. Can help us with I love the every day serving in your local church mentality. But i think that feels less than two. Some people are like. Oh that's just like. I'll do something on sundays but during the week. God what am i doing with my life. I can't get anywhere. i don't know i'm doing my job. How do you see giving your life away for your church. How do you see that filling in those blanks of the other cultural desires. That someone would want. Because i mean rachel i agree with what you're saying one hundred ten percent but i also remember when i was twenty five and i'm going well. That doesn't solve my problem. Because what's my problem is a better job and a husband and a bigger house and a new car. That's also a problem. So is the step from getting from. How do we have serving actually fill those holes for us. Nothing wrong with going after a job. Either because you have in your job to there's nothing wrong with desiring to get married and taking steps to make that happen. And i think some of us want those things and yet kinda stuck where we are in a roads and i. I remember when i was that age rather than apply for any job. So actually do anything i applied to appear on. Tv game show because that was kind of kind of lower stakes. But that sounds real fun. Rachel i mean it was. It was less firm. When i got on the tv..

"Kind of child bearing motif a and then you get the full you get genesis three and you get these a gut wrenching lines got tells the woman with. It's going to be painful in pain that your bear children and is obviously labor pregnancy and labour itself deeply painful but also there's a sense that just as so many things that can go wrong just with the whole gynecological area. I'm periods themselves kind of part of that pain that sort of universal womanhood. And then as you go through scripture you get to levinsky leviticus fifteen and that's where god says the women on their period unclean so the generation that period and so just imagining what what life is as an israeli woman is like like that and there's kind of mirror instructions man and their reproductive discharges. But you still got kind of questions about. Why makes it like that. You know what's what's his good purposes in saying that you know it's funny because when you're mentioning these scriptural references that you're walking us through and i didn't mean to cut you off so you probably have more and i'll let you go back to it but you're walking through these scriptural references and i just racial. I'm sitting here going. I have never ever given a second thought. To the fact that god knows or cares about my reproductive i don't mean reproductive because i know that that would be like you know getting pregnant and having a baby and i clearly see on but my every month cycle of the have how that is instilled in me and how god has created everything. And i'm just. I know this is your life and you wrote this book and so i'm just saying i'm here going. I've never thought about these before. I got my hands on your book and read it and so thank you so much. Okay wanna cut you off. Keep going with scripture references. What's fascinating about that. Leviticus passages that he. Yeah he he kind of sees he knows it. He regulates it with regards to worship at the temple. So if you're clean as women on your period you can't worship in the in the tabernacle only at the temple. Yeah just this idea that. This god is so intimately involved and he kind of he sees he knows and that's not kind of beneath his gaze and it's something that he's uninterested in that he sees a whole person and that's kind of brought into even more wonderful clarity in the gospels and have this beautiful story in mark five of jesus in the bleeding woman and she's been she's been bleeding for twelve years with some kind of an issue and just you know how painful that must've i share joe exhaustion and you know she so shame that she just wants to reach the edge of jesus cloak and so she she goes up to win the crowd and she grabs the edge of his cloak and all of us all of a sudden. She's healed jesus. He wants to see her and her restore her. This beautiful scene. Where jesus stops what he's doing he's on the way to to raise raizal to heal a little girl. He's got things to do but he wants to stop and speak to this woman and a dresser is daughter. And say your your faith is he'll do and it's just a really beautiful seed. Jesus not disgusted by these issues. You know he's not he's not embarrassed. How many menace could do about this book. Maybe are i talk about. Jesus is a man who loves women and he sees them on casbah then on these kinds of issues You know you mentioned earlier about a friend of yours who struggles with endometriosis. And i know that is a common struggle for so many women and and it's kind of in some sense not talked about much and i think women might feel maybe embarrassed or not having a friend share that with all the struggles that go with that. What have you learned in your journey of writing this book. About god's seeing them in that pain and caring for them and what does that mean as a christian woman to walk through life with almost this a little bit of a debilitating illness that comes up rears. Its ugly head with us. What did you learn about that. And what do you have to say. Even to the woman who's listening. Who's going this is my story. This is the struggle that i have is is communist. Sort of ten percent of women is this. Yeah and yeah this for in particular you know. She's had to fight really hard for doctors to take seriously together kind of diagnosis and the treatment and now thankfully she has been prescribed some things that are helping her. And so yeah. It's just keep persevering on a really practical level keep persevering because you can get the hell need it is also. I was thinking along the lines of. I think this can be a hard thing for women to open up about because it feels like something's wrong with some part of my body is not easy to talk about. Yeah so there might be some shame or embarrassment there. And i see what you're doing with this book is the whole thing is like. Let's take out the shame. Let's take out the embarrassment. Let's talk about what every woman in the world for. The most part is dealing with our periods and even with something like enemy says where women might feel alone and different. And there's something wrong with me. I've like the gospel meets her there. A lot of women are embarrassed to talk about it so they're allowing their friends to speak that gospel to them. This kind of what. I was feeling about that even having some friends that have walked through that and so they encourage enough man. The gospel meet you in your pain even in your dimitrios which is good news for those women who are struggling yeah absolutely absolutely it just brings into into sharper relief. Doesn't that cost hope. The new body mecca. Remember best friend. Saying you know are really.

And i want to let you know a mutual friend of ours who you work with. Sent me an email. And he's like. Hey i had this book. I want you to read and maybe talk about and i pulled it up. And it's called a brief theology of periods. Yes really and you're not talking about periods at the end of a sentence. You're talking about a woman's periods and i thought have i ever seen a book about periods nonetheless a christian book about and so rachel. We're going to jump right into this. Because i need to know where in the world did you get the idea to write a book about women hood end periods. Yes pretty much every month. I guess yeah for a long time i like. Why are you know all kind of all a hassle mass hormones all the pain and just you know if we believe. God made our bodies the you kind of end up asking the question. Why would you make it like this. So kind of just sheer curiosity guess but also kind of walking through life with various friends who actually periods are huge pods their life on debilitating corporative friend who has entered metro system. And you know it. It just struck me that. Here's this thing you know. She these awful cramps and vomiting diarrhea. And this terrible symptoms and it just struck me that here was this thing that was a massive part of her life. You know a huge area of suffering and it never been mentioned from the front on a sunday. it was never preached on. It wasn't something she felt she could talk about in our bible study group and but the bible speaks into these things you know. The bible is really honest roar and it talks about pain and endurance and womanhood our blood periods about periods so. I really wanted to write a book that would kind of speak into this female experience that not many people speaking into acquisitions. I've seen a lot of proposals. This never came across. Your desk never came feel myself well. I would be interesting to hear rachel in your time spinning thinking about this researching this. Why does your reason to think that why not only is this not talked about a lot but why is it even that. The book came across my desk and i went. Oh my gosh book about periods like even brought something up in me as a woman who i like. You have appeared every single month. It's been a part of my life. Since i was fifteen years old but it's still brought something up in meat. That's the reason you want to write it. Because of that so i would love to hear. What have you learned in this journey of how we as christians and women can become more comfortable with our bodies a cultural aspect to it. And that's what's fascinating about the conversation more widely in our culture. There's this whole kind of movement to talk about periods you've gotta periods emoji now and they've got they almost made it into the last james bond film and so there's this kind of movement no longer be ashamed to talk about periods oh not periods and then within the church says this kind of element of is that okay. Is that okay really. Like we're going to be following that kind of ground swell towards liberation or whatever it is because we do. We do have passages in the bible that talk about periods and not always in kind of complementary ways you know so i think there's an element of that but i think we just raised to be quite private about. Yeah honest even at school. You know we use code language for you. Periods of like girls toilets even though everyone else's that was also having periods right and the it was just like why did we feel feel a need code language. You know forty three years old still language. okay. I have a curiosity question. You said it almost made it into the james bond movie. What do you mean by that. So this is the movie that they haven't really checks because code but they did all the publicity last march when they were about to bring out and apparently way almost had a scene where a female agent through a used tampon into a pin and the ad come out during the cost of the press interviews and they didn't in the end but was this article where the journalists just us you know nothing is more revealing about a kind of where we're at the moment that james bond this kind of testosterone filled franchise is wondering whether it's time to do not to periods. Because that's what we do these days. Okay so you talk about how. The bible actually speaks of periods and to this part of our lives. Can you walk us through this like. Where are you seeing this. So that someone can own my. Gosh i in my eyes were never open to what you're talking about. So where do you see the bible talking about periods. Yeah so in the book try and kind of follow the storyline of scripture. So we start in creation. God makes male and female dow different yet both essential and they're both come together to balance of judea and so there's that kind of child bearing motif a and then you get the full you get genesis three and you get these a gut wrenching lines got tells.

Most of us don't pay attention to whether we are constantly complaining or expressing appreciation. We don't notice what we say.

Coronavirus: Unmasking the Facts
"It's been a week of social distancing for me. I finished a puzzle I cooked for the first time in a million years. Well I put more than three ingredients into a ball for overnight arts. I was pretty proud of myself. And like a lot of S. I was glued to news about this corona virus and I kept coming across questions around to specific things. Ibuprofen and mosques. So that's what we're diving into today. Some reports are saying that ibuprofen. The stuffing advil is making people with corona virus sicker and they should steer clear of the drug. So what's going on there but vast we want to talk about mosques we're hearing a lot about shortages healthcare workers that didn't have enough mosques and other. Ghia to keep them safe in Italy more than thirty five hundred healthcare workers have already gotten the virus in the US. We heard from those who worried they would be next. He's one of few of them told us they've told us that they're only going to give one mask every five days. What they're having a stew is really wear the same dirty mask over and over and over again and if we need a new mask we have to go in. Show the old one to our supervisor to prove why it needs to be thrown away. We get handed in ninety five mess. And we're supposed to keep them in bags and put our names on them and reuse them through today this moment we are already rationing or as a few days ago. Got to a point where almost completely out and we had to start using some of our masks and gowns horrifying. We're all completely horrified. We feel like we are soldiers being sent to war without the protective equipment that we need. A lot of people are scared to go to work all. This is starting to sound awful. So how important are these mosques? Healthcare workers and is it that bad to reuse them for this. We called up. Professor Ryan McIntyre an infectious disease expert at the University of New South Wales Australia. Hello Hello so let me. Just Reina has led several clinical trials looking at how Moscow's protect healthcare workers from respiratory viruses. And she's found that the best kind the one that healthcare workers need the end ninety. Five's you might have heard of these reina. Kohl's them respirate a mosques. They're the ones that look like. They kind of molded over your nose and mouth and how they feet. It's actually potted them magic. The way you can tell is a respirator. Fits tightly around? The face doesn't allow the leakage of air and health. Care workers should wear resprayed and Rhino. She has the data to show. How good these puppies? All in one of her studies. She took more than three thousand healthcare workers in Beijing and found that after a month those given in ninety five mosques had roughly half the infection rate of workers using those classical surgical mosques like the ones. You might see the dentist now. Not all studies have found this. But Reina's Ah some of the largest and best in this space what healthcare work is really need in this pandemic. Those ninety five respirator style mosques but as we heard from healthcare workers in some places on enough to go around. There's been a lot of talk of a healthcare workers having to reuse mosques sometimes for multiple days in a row. How risky is that? It probably carries some risk because Musket Contaminated. They get moist. And that's not good for you because bacteria can grow in a moist environment. But it's got no choice. That's like a really difficult dilemma. One solution to the shortage is to not only reuse mosques but to disinfect them so to find out what might work producing. Rose Rim learn. I'm cold up an expert in this very fields. My name is Rachel. Jones and my specialty area is actually around the exposures of healthcare workers to viral respiratory infections. That's that's handy it is Rachel. Who'S AT THE UNIVERSITY OF UTAH. Told us that she'd been hearing of all kinds of things that doctors and nurses we using disinfect. Their respirators there was alcohol. Sprays bleach which we know can kill the virus. But you have to be careful so you don't breathe in a face full of bleach other places have been experimenting. With you irradiation. It can be used to disinfect respirators. And so you can. You can disinfect them. Yes that's great surprise their challenges and they haven't all been I think proven to work as robustly as we'd like them to work and it's not clear that you know all the healthcare facilities have the processes in place studies in the lab using special machinery have found that viruses can be killed with UvA radiation. But Rachel says a lot of hospitals in the US out set up for this kind of thing at the moment and so another idea has been popping up making mosques out of cloth like sometimes t shirt material yes. Crofting is joining the war movement. Some hospitals even calling on. Diy Croft as to so mosques to shore up the supply but can cloth. Stop a virus. Well Rachel says put down you needles and thread a lot of materials. Just aunt made to stop viruses space like think of teasha material. We liked t shirts because they airy and they don't make a sweat too much in viruses can roll right through them all those properties that we like in our T. shirt. Make them problematic to use as a mask. Because small particles have been demonstrated in experimental studies to move readily through cloth that is used asks like abandoned or a t-shirt the only clinical trial that we have on cloth mosques which had around a thousand doctors nurses found that they didn't work and in that study actually increased risk of viral infections. We don't know exactly why it's so interesting that the CDC has recommendations at say okay in dire straits it's like their last resort like if it's really dire straits it's a crisis there's nothing else you can wear cloth mask as a healthcare worker. Executive Vice. I don't think that's a good advice. I was really surprised that that came out as a recommendation as where some of my colleagues were saying to each other. Well mostly kind of snacking. Our foreheads going. Oh no mostly. We were just surprised because there really is no scientific evidence that That using a class mass offers any benefit to suggest. A cloth mask is is not based on science. And so it's important to separate out what is the science based type of controls. And what is the shortage based type of

Let's turn to another of the dangerous women you include in your book. The claim director Voodoo Varney at the Sundance Film Festival. A few years ago I spoke to a about Hollywood's lack of diversity the obstacle the systemic. Its stomach it's a system that's been set up in a certain way times of change ideas of matured and the system might not have caught up with her state up with that very conscious people very liberal very progressive people within the academy. I'm a member. It was invited a couple of years ago my black hog for Bradford young was invited this year. There's an attempt but it needs to be articulated and followed up on. I think the thing that it's challenging is when people talk about it should happen within. There's no follow up to that talk about Pat Mitchell y you included a Voodoo Varney. WHO's broken through so so many barriers in Hollywood I think eva individually has done so much to make Hollywood and more are inclusive place through her nonprofit array? She is made sure that films. By communities of Color get distributed. She has brought women and other people from other communities often face additional barriers to getting projects made stories told she's made made that a priority and she's walked the talk. She's done it. You look at the project. She's taken on herself. And then you look at the people. She hires in in the series she did on television. She hired women directors to do every single episode now that took fighting through some barriers Systemic barriers as a herself indicates. But she's done it so including evo was very important to me because she is a representative of how important representation is in media on all our screens behind signed in front of the cameras ensuring that all stories are getting told all voices are being heard and respected. Abras a leader there and so is the Sundance Sundance Institute which I'm very privileged to chair that board inclusive nece in our festival and the the people who are behind the scenes who are directing who are writing the stories making sure that that is a more inclusive and representative world has a strategic priority of the Institute and served on that board and was a leader and making this a priority for all of US media legend Pat Mitchell.

"Shirt uh-huh damn by Alpha and Omega Komo. Sports all is lost. Woman made a pencil skirt of God. Oh Lord so we're back. We were talking fun sketches. Ask during the break. We don't Miss David Koresh. Yes I don't no no I'd say schedule. We know but to this point he's still been Vernon Howell and he is now the leader of the cult so he changes his name as you do. I don't know why didn't just stick with Vernon Jezreel Israel. Well I'll tell you why okay then and I can. I can weigh in a little bit on the name thing as far as some of the OT history than I think gives it real flesh on the bones should go for it. Why didn't change his name? So David of course being King David which was of the Israeli Judah Jews that it sounds like it. Sounds like a fucking sports drink. Choose that or you're yelling. In order to fucking Burger King. I'll take oh that was in the clerks. I'll take an EGA movie muffin. And a king of the juice all right. Let's let's let poor John. Thomas Finished Lee. Okay so so Karesh interesting little riff on talking about the history so so the the kingdom. NFL You know the kingdom Israel and Judah fell and then the Jews went into US called ASPRO which is where. They're kind of all over but the Babylonians noticed that There were a disproportionately huge amount of people in Judaism that could read and write and that was really useful skill so I took those folks and they essentially that stick pick them. Even to this day it helps reading. It'd be able to read and write. Yes I'm the dissenting opinions. So they kept them in captivity slavery. Whatever you WANNA call it And they were freed by the Persians so at that point Cyrus is the leader and he surprisingly. Is this fairly magnanimous conquer. That this is well I got no problem with you. Go back to take your let these people go. So he's he's he's embraced as as a Messiah and in the Old Testament Messiah didn't necessarily mean anything divide it was just meant essentially someone who saved us yet exactly in so Karesh is Hebrew. I said the Babylonian so in in that story They're kind of the bad guys. Yeah so the the babblings are the bad guys in the Old Testament in that at Motif is carried forward into the New Testament into the ready book of revelations. Say Hey I don't know the Cyrus has also Cyrus the great. He's referred to as is also remembered because he chose a form of the traveler the last time that goes with a gazillion game. Ascom shoe three feet above the covers as well. The reason I asked about the Babylonian says didn't Karesh and maybe we'll get into this. So I'm sorry if I'm jumping on Didn't caress preach that The American government was Babylon. Yeah so Babylon is like I said it's a it's a motif not F- along with Rome That is used commonly In Christian circles and sex as basically representation of of evil empire. So okay used interchange you wrote a really upbeat song about it. People Ericsson Avenue. Now I don't know I. I went to raging answer machine route. So yes that says a lot about both I think it does yeah. There's of course in revelation the horror of Babylon who's wearing a sash. So how was it like kind of like a scarlet letter type family. She had to wear it. So we're herbal was we're going to. We're going off royal color Roy. The Roman royal color specifically go. Okay well this woman. That was fun. Thank you played Roman hopscotch us to say what it was that a Roman hots hopscotch. Don't act like you don't know I don't know I. Yeah I don't know anyway speaking of Atlanta in the lion pit if you land on the six inch because now David Koresh. WHO's taking the name of King David and Cyrus the great becoming David Krejci Vernon now is gone because being a total shit stain on society is is beyond him in eighty? Nine Karesh uses power as spiritual leader of this group to take several spiritual in quotes as they put them wives as young. Their relationship was very physical. The was fucking the shit out of anything there. And you know what when you're in a close group in your your Bang and everything all of a sudden u-turn onto into you turn to like heeded children now Kevin. Yes interesting thing we say twelve. There is a lot of young girls and we Saito of. Why is that? What was the legal the age of consent in Texas well My rebuttal here. I don't have my legal counsel here Why are you asking me? No I'm just kidding with fifty states that some some level by that for I believe leave when I was reading about this. It said that it was like fourteen sort with parents consent. In Texas fourteen with consent they could get married. They could get married at fourteen with parents consent. INSENT but yeah and so you guys you know what. I'm saying that this is just to create a new lineage of world leaders. It's it's not because he is. He's taking one for the team. Well wait a minute. Why did it have to be the young kids to? There's only so many women there didn't read that they had to be virgins urgence for the the twenty four I I know I said No. Because he took wives of everyone there that was already but he okay so the offspring he was mixing. Metaphors is forty seven or twenty seven. I forget how many women I'm sorry children. He was supposed to bear. That would become the the new rulers. Well guess is what though people start talking and this raised allegations of child abuse which contributed to the siege. That eventually was going to happen by the ATF. And the reason why he did this as he was interpreting revelations chapter five specially verse to crush identified himself as is the lamb of God or the land. This ad mentioned the verse in the actual verse. Partout is at the strong angel claiming with a loud voice who is worthy to open the book and to lose the seals thereof him. He signed himself as the the seals. Now do you WanNa talk. Are you familiar with that. Like talk to us about it's traditionally is interpreted as a symbol of Jesus Christ and that's but not for Davey he thought of himself as that lamb and he was therefore Jesus yeah so if you read his his exegesis on the seven seals which he didn't get through all through I think the first one because it was written during during the siege. He talks about that He. He didn't proclaim to be Jesus Christ. He thought that Jesus Christ failed in his his mission and that he was the quote Unquote Sin Point. Asya the simple fire. We'll talk about. which by the way do you think sinful messiah sounds like a English English speed metal band from exactly thank them? They're they're in that David Koresh would be their their hit song maidenhead burden so so yeah. He was Interpreting that obviously differently That he was that at slane land that would be able to open the slain lamb. I actually saw them open sinful Messiah Time so this is fun and the thing about this is is when he's now he is this Messiah and he's taken on these quote Unquote Spiritual Eyes Fiona. That's his period. You don't have anything everything is his your TV your car. Your Wife your child. He was Lamma God and all things were his period. And if you're going to be in that group you were going to abide by those rules rules and what's crazies. You Talk to these people and they're like you were talking to him. He's took your wife. WHO's the only way he he? He deserves it you know. He's my brother and We separated them right. The men and the women well because he didn't want any right he made them in like get rid of photos. Oh does of their wives. That was not able to do that. And I mean obviously that speaks to his narcissism on a whole `nother level that he I mean when you you think of the narcissistic personality disorder. You have to understand that. They really feel like they're sometimes literally sometimes figuratively the center of the universe and so right right other people's desires don't really matter because they're bit players today. Well I think he really believed in some people you look at people that are in you know. Look at Jim Jones Jim Jones was a sham. I really think David Koresh thought that he was in the right or he was helping these people in fucked up way Kevin. I were talking about this earlier earlier in so I always go back to when we talk about These type of co-leaders. I feel like they fall into one of two branches. They either fall into opportunistic Charlatan or they fall into true believer and I was convinced especially with the spiritual wives that he was the opportunist An in didn't believe a word of it but but after reading some of his his like the exit Jesus's remark about. I think he might have believed some of this yet. I mean I really do. And it may have been something where where he vacillated back and forth right. Well yeah and that's something that they in themselves like why I'm having doubt and that's because I man and I need to as this and things things like that we're talking about what he did. Have one legal wife. Her name was Rachel Jones and she was fourteen actually at the time of their marriage. That's only legal marriage that he had a tonight and crush asses followers to embrace celibacy. We're talking about like you said you you. He notified their marriages. You're not a took the one for himself including Rachel's twelve year old sister Michelle so he was married spiritually to a twelve year old girl for sure now some of them there've been talks. He was with some as young as ten. The problem is when they testified. The story changed and things like that. So it's never been for sure as twelve is hideous radius enough behavior. I think it's all fucking hideous and I think this guy's so an I texted to bowl to you guys after doing some research. This guy is so full of Shit. Well if you're not to say that he didn't maybe not believe this the theological shit and have such narcissism that he thought he was the one who who only understood the seals and open them. But he's so full of Shit. Well you understand some if he fox you you're now in the House of David and that's all that's just because his name on the lease well and it's also also all the music played you gotta think he was just pumping that twenty four seven. He wasn't listening to like sales and crawl. Yeah Doc he admitted to fathering twelve children by several wives though other sources say fifteen which is a weird weird thing and unfortunately the seventy seven year old woman.

"In New York and again the Lansky asked about that meeting and I I am one the same year for mediation to Washington you invited me. but I think I'm for it I'm sorry but I think you forgot to tell me the date. but I think in the nearest future. no date has been set Tamar Keith NPR news our latest NPR PBS Marist poll finds that Americans are paying attention as we learn more about president trump's call with his Ukrainian counterpart but they're divided on the question of whether or not the impeachment inquiry is warranted to medical Montanaro is NPR senior political editor and joins us now how to medico Hey there are let's start with what the numbers tell us about whether Americans approve of house Democrats impeachment inquiry what's the result well Americans are split overall forty nine to forty six on whether they approve of Democrats starting this impeachment inquiry we should be careful though because this poll was conducted over one night last night and that was before this morning's revelation of that whistle blower complaint being released but here's what we know so far and it's instructive for how the messaging wars going to play out independents are not on board with this at this point half of them in the poll say they disapprove and that's a key group that's trended with Democrats on almost everything in the trump Arab but just not impeachment people who live in the suburbs they're also not quite convinced their split and Democrats have work to do to convince both of those key groups member suburban voters help Democrats over the line in twenty eighteen to take back the house the poll also found big splits that are pretty familiar by now with by gender party in place women especially women with college degrees said they're supportive of beginning this process men and people who live in rural areas largely not overall though Americans want to hear more three quarters said they want to hear the whistle blower testified before Congress and a majority thinks that there needs to be more investigation into that phone call president trump had with the president of Ukraine this story has totally consumed official Washington over the last week beyond DC are people paying attention yeah I mean what the pollsters found here was that seven in ten in factor saying that they are paying attention to this story but so far it's a higher percentage of Republicans actually who've been tuning in eighty percent compared to seventy percent of Democrats just sixty four. percent of independents and again that messaging seems so crucial when it comes to independence because they're such a key group of four people who could be persuaded here the medical this story is moving so fast we recorded interview early in the day and it's obsolete by the time we're on the air in the afternoon so how reliable are these poll numbers actually we'll poll numbers can always change and we should know that this poll we should you know only say is a snapshot of what people thought and this is after the day of the details of the phone call trump had with the president of Ukraine and that was released this is a one night poll so it was conducted before that whistleblower complaint came out like we said earlier so we're going to have to see what happens in the coming days a lot can and probably will change our pollsters warned that the next forty eight to seventy two hours are going to be crucial because in the words of one of our pollsters right now looks like we're in the middle of a political storm here and opinions are very fluid as NPR senior political editor to medical Montanaro thank you you're welcome. you're listening to All Things Considered from NPR news. political Washington can be a bit of a bubble the stories I feel so big and so important don't always get people talking in the rest of the country well as we've just heard that is not the case with Ukraine call and the impeachment inquiry so we've asked people around the country for their takes on the news Bob record a Phoenix Arizona says he has been following along the medium amount I think that the president just needs to do its job and people need to until it is too much nitpicking and trying to impeach him that's just ridiculous if someone is on my shoulders all there would be able to do my job so looking over my shoulder or beating me down every chance they get record doesn't support the impeachment inquiry he says Democrats should just let the president do his job Hey they've tried now many times so far and nothing comes of it it just seems like a they're trying to build a wall right through the middle country we also reach Stephanie loving in the bay area she supports the impeachment inquiry well I'm very happy about that finally happening hello it's been a long time coming but loving agrees that this episode has been divisive the Republican Party.
