Turkey launches airstrikes on Syria after Trump pulls back U.S. troops

"You today Turkey launched its long expected offensive on Kurdish controlled areas in northern Syria the attack comes just three days after president trump ordered US troops out of the border region the Kurds are US allies they have been protecting religious minorities in Syria and first time jobless has the president's order has angered US Christian leaders organizations following the fighting in Syria over the past eight years have been especially concerned about attacks on Christians USY these and other religious minorities largely carried out by ISIS those minorities have found refuge in areas of Syria controlled by Kurdish forces but that's precisely the part of seer yet now targeted by Turkey we're getting reports that some of these villages are being shelter paint bombs and there's a lot of concern among these Christians in particular that we're hearing from Tony Perkins is an evangelical Christian leader now chairing the U. S. commission on international religious freedom he was appointed by president trump but Perkins is among those US Christians worried about the effect in Syria of trump's pull back of U. S. troops we could see we could see another move of genocide in that region the concern is that the Kurdish forces who've been protecting Christians and other minorities may now be pushed aside thousands of ISIS prisoners now under Kurdish control could be left unguarded president trump has enjoyed almost unlimited support from evangelical Christian leaders in part because his administration has highlighted the persecution of Christians around the world but by giving an apparent green light to this Turkish invasion trump's reputation has been tainted here's evangelical Pat Robertson speaking Monday on his Christian broadcasting network I want to say this was great Solamente the president of the United States is in danger of losing the mandate of heaven if he permits this to happen that criticism is echoing across the U. S. Christian world Russell Moore who heads the policy arm of the Southern Baptist Convention said today the U. S. failure to push back against the Turkish attacks is a disgrace our brothers and sisters in Christ more tweeted are among those targeted for slaughter Republican senator Lindsey Graham today called for a day of prayer for the Kurds now up against Turkish forces in his broadcast today Pat Robertson seconded Graham's call to stand with the Kurds they are alpha analyze our friends and we absolutely cannot abandon them still more criticism today from Franklin Graham until now one of president trump's most loyal supporters in evangelical circles in a tweet Graham said would you pray with me that president trump will reconsider thousands of lives hang in the balance faced with such criticism president trump today defended his move in a statement he said the United States has made it clear to Turkey that this operation is a bad idea Turkey he said has committed to protecting civilians protecting religious minorities including Christians and we will hold them to this commitment he said but if the US commission on religious freedom Tony Perkins long the trump ally isn't all that hopeful that Turkey will heed the president's words I do not have a high level of confidence fact they have no confidence that Turkey will preserve true religious freedom or protect those religious minorities all this push back from evangelical leaders over tribes Syria move doesn't necessarily mean he will lose evangelical support come election time Ralph reed founder of the faith and freedom call shin is quoted in a new book today saying that American evangelicals have a moral obligation to back president trump and Susie yes

"Here's Doug Russell Moore's got a stellar outing from Zank Davies, but he was unable to keep that going for the bullpen the pen, comps up five runs in the seven twins. Beat the brewers last night, five to three Casten hero and is money. Grondahl each at home runs. Not enough. The crew off today, the play the pirates tomorrow night, and Hauser brothers have announced their new school Sam will play his final season of college ball at defending national champion Virginia. Little brother, Joey, he said to east Lansing, he'll suit up for the Michigan state Spartans. Sorry, try to right gone. Homerun Eddie rose sorry. Oh, his seventeen the year. It's five nothing. Minnesota, Minnesota mash, the ball again, last night, beating the Brewster excluded that interleague set next up a trip to Pittsburgh, but first, let's do Burs three sixty with radio play by play man. Jeff levering on WTMJ. Good morning, sir. Hey, good morning, everybody. So are you still in Minnesota? Did you move on to Pittsburgh, ready? We are in perogie Ville. Oh, nice. Ferment sandwich somewhere. Yeah. I might have to wait a little bit on that going to let my digestive system work myself into a per Monte brothers sandwich. I think it's gonna happen. But at some point a little bit later, what's there to do in? I mean I don't know. I, I wouldn't know what's there to do in Pittsburgh on an off day. Slam. I know. But I, I don't know I've only been to Pittsburgh once, and it was only for like, twelve hours, so I don't know what there is to do like New York. I know what there is to do in an off day, for example in Los Angeles. I know what there is today. For example. Sure. Sure. There's I mean, there's lots to do. We were actually discussing this a couple of days ago when we were on our way to Pittsburgh because we have off day, I was actually going to play golf this afternoon, but the weather's going to be pretty poor. So that was quickly cancelled. So there are some options, you know, you we might go over to a steel mill we could check out the river tour. They have ticky boats that go through the Allegheny these days, maybe that's an option. You know, we could do a whole lot of things in Pittsburgh. Moonlighting or something. No. You know, I was thinking about doing little flash dance. But that's not going to happen a little later. What I'm around. I know. You're right. That's a that's Doug Russell special there will be a family dinner tonight. So that's a good thing. There'd be a nice little broadcaster dinner at a, a play a great Italian place called the pleasure bars that is happening. Radio buddy. Jeff levering, bruise three sixty end WTMJ should talk, some baseball executives great start last night, making up for the one that was not so great here in Milwaukee, and then just one bad inning out of the bullpen and things kind of went sideways last night. Yet did Alex cloudy, gotta figure something out here. Pretty quick has his month of may not been great Craig counsel giving nice boat of confidence after the game saying, hey he's gonna get left. He's out just didn't happen last night, and gives up things got kind of sideways with a bad play by Casten here. Trying to do little bit too much on the ground ball. But, you know, max Kepler and Eddie Rozario the to the hottest hitters in the league. And they're the ones that ended up getting the brewers a little bit yesterday. But the get a couple of home runs late Grondahl hits a home run from the right side of the plate kissing here hits. Another home run goes the opposite way. So there are some signs of positivity ended up being five three game birds you're gonna have to figure out ways to score runs here in Pittsburgh. That's been there issue over the last couple of years. So. Hopefully over the weekend the weather holds up person foremost. And then if the weather's good hopefully balls are flying out of the ballpark. The bluish course runs as you mentioned testing here ahead, another home run last night as well. I know that there's a little bit of a body of work on here right now, what point? And maybe the maybe the answer is right now at what point do you think he's a legitimate major league player on an everyday basis, not just kinda called up for when Travis Shaw got injured? Well, I think you gotta give guy in this circumstance least fifty to one hundred at bats and just kind of see what he can do. And then and then kind of reevaluate at that point. You know, in Casten spin cast defense he's going to be able to hit this first taste in the major leagues. He's done a pretty good job. He's not in the world on fire but you know what? He's a pretty good job. And he's playing second base at pre decent level, too. I think the most important thing is, is figuring out what Travis Shaw's going to do because he's down in San Antonio right now. He had one hit in his entire have assignment till yesterday had a couple of heads. So that's a good thing. Maybe he's starting to turn the corner. But the most important thing is making sure that he gets right? And if he comes back and he's an effective hitter at the big league level, it's going to help out the brewers offense whether he's playing first base maybe play some third. You gotta find a way to get him in the lineup again, if he is going to be effective, but he's got to find his swing. More importantly, I think I'm pretty confident the Casten here is going to do good job once he gets comfortable in the big leagues. You reevaluate that I think, for casting about fifty to one hundred at bats radio play by play man Jeff laboring. Joining us live. I'm brewers three sixty. If you need something else to do in Pittsburgh, today, might I recommend the king incline. Those, those. Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. For sure. I'm all in on that.

"Four KCRW. It's morning edition from NPR news. I'm Steve Inskeep. And I'm Rachel Martin the southern Baptist convention is facing calls for criminal investigations into sexual abuse within the denomination this after two Texas newspapers published reports showing over the last two decades, Baptist leaders employees volunteers sexually abused more than seven hundred people many of them children, and Marie Miller is one of the survivors. She was sixteen years old when her family left, a small town in Texas and moved to Dallas she was searching for connections and she met a local youth. Pastor who is in his mid twenties. It started as just a casual friendship, but it did get more physical and sexual as we continue to meet after it ended Miller thought of it as a relationship gone wrong until years later when a friend told Miller about her own experience of sexual assault by back. Optus youth? Pastor she said it so perfectly. She said, I wasn't it wasn't consensual. I was compliant. So at the age of sixteen even legally I was not able to give consent in two thousand seven Miller reported her assault to Baptist church officials. They determined that it did happen. But they never fired her abuser. Who then found another position within the church last year? Miller who is now thirty eight years old reported him to the police in December. He was indicted for sexual assault of a child. I asked Anne Marie Miller. What went through her mind when she read the investigations in the newspaper. I think it's wonderful. Then I know a lot of people are shocked with the amount of victims of predators there were. But I know I know for a fact that there are so many more the SBC has failed in a huge way to be proactive in stopping abuse that they know about because they have this. I caught the eye. Title of autonomy, each churches, local each churches were as possible for its own actions. Right. It's not like the Catholic church where there's a big hierarchy in each churches beholden to a larger church structure. And ultimately the pope. This is a decentralized kind of system is decentralized, but that's just an excuse because if you know that people are getting abused, and you know, that you have pastors and leaders doing it. And yet you don't do anything about it. You are not feeling the mission of protecting the most vulnerable, which is what Jesus was all about. So the leaders of the southern Baptist convention of the president JD Greer, also Dr Russell Moore say clearly this is evil. It is something that needs to be wiped out. They also say Dr Russell Moore did on our program that some tangible changes need to occur. I wanna play a clip of him from our interview. There are a number of steps. One of those institute with training. Churches to know how to respond when there is a case or a suspicion of case. And then there has to be a way to connect churches to one another to know win. There has been an incident or an allegation of abuse happening at another church to prevent someone from simply moving from one church to the other under cover of darkness. What do you make of that? I hope that it happens. I think those are very realistic first steps, I know, Dr more personally, and he and Mr. here have been supportive of me personally during this time, and I have good faith in them. I don't know if it's going to happen because people have been suggesting those very things to them over the last decade or more and they haven't been implemented. They're missing a very key component. I think is it's great. And it's an essential to protect future people from being harmed and project predators from moving from church to church, but what are you going to do about the survivors? Now. I can tell you that myself included. It is going to be a cold day in hell when I step back into a backwards church. Like, you're not helping heal the damage, and so there definitely needs to be something for victims. We need counselling we need resources. Our families have been traumatized by this. And just by keeping out within the church, you're going to miss a majority of the people that have been hurt by the church because most of us that have been hurt by the church are no longer in the church. You say you are no longer a member of of a southern Baptist congregation. But have you been able to more broadly rebuild your faith? Your Christian faith. That's a touchy subject for me. I haven't I've gone through phases. Where I think I have. But then this all comes back around. And I'm just not sure sorry don't mean, emotional, but. I know God. And I know there's there's Jesus I will even choose us. But it breaks my heart to know that there are women who have destroyed other men and women and children under the name of Jesus and in God's name cons house. And so I don't know if I can see that churches safe place again, I really don't. Anne, Marie Miller. Thank you so much for talking with us and sharing your story.

I've come to Florida to meet Cameron Caskey one young man who decided to confront America's gun lobby after he was caught up in a deadly mass shooting at his high school in parkland, Florida exactly a year ago. I think when people hear the word parkland, they think of something larger and stronger than the shooter. I mean, in many ways, I think that the greatest thing parkland did was show that it was stronger than anyone who could try to attack. It. That's Cameron Caskey on HARDtalk after the news. BBC news.

A high profile leader of the US Baptist church. Russell Moore has survivors of sexual abuse by church officials to come forward. It's in response to an investigation by to Texas newspapers, which revealed there were more than seven hundred victims in the southern Baptist convention network of churches, which have some fifteen million members BBC news, welcome to hard talk on the BBC World Service with me Steven Saka today. I'm in Florida to meet a young man whose life was dramatically changed one year ago by an act of senseless. Terrible violence Cameron Caskey was preparing to leave Marjory stoneman Douglas high school when a former student entered the campus and started indiscriminately shooting at students and teachers with a semi automatic rifle by the time. He ended his assault. Fourteen students and three staff members were dead. Many more wounded it was the latest in a long line of mass shootings in schools which began in Columbine Colorado, two decades ago. But something different happened after the horror of parkland within days, a group of students at the school decided to confront America's gun lobby. Head on Cameron Caskey was one of their leaders. He was seen on nationwide. Tv demanding that Florida Senator Marco Rubio, stop taking funds from the National Rifle Association. He was a key organizer of a youth led mass March in Washington DC demanding action on gun control. Suddenly at seventeen Cameron Caskey was a national figure, but a year on how does he now feel about the movement? He helped to create and what if anything has really changed Cameron Caskey joins me. Now. Welcome to heart talk. Thank you for having me. It's pretty much one year since you were part of the traumatic events at the high school in parkland. How are you today? Today. Mixed bag. Eighteen year old boy who's like any other eighteen year old boy dealing with the trappings of of being a teenager. I struggle with depression, anxiety, very normal things, but issues that are hard to talk about lately, do you struggle with PTSD. I mean is there former that came out of what you went through that is still with you. I think there's a I wouldn't call it trauma. I would call it a moral. A moral ambiguity behind everything. Because after the shooting I found myself on on television and almost twenty four seven for for for for a month or two, and I found myself skyrocket into this position. Where there's so many people were looking at what I had to say, we're listening to me. And this was only weeks after the shooting that I found myself at this point with my platform. So I find myself asking the question was it all worth it? What makes me so special? What why should I have been somebody who was able to reach all these people, and that's difficult, but I certainly don't have any trauma from the shooting itself. I was over one hundred yards away from the shooting. I was not in any physical danger. That's why I hate when people call me a victim or survivor. I mean, they're young people who go to school every day right now. And and saw their classmates Di I didn't see anyone die. You're very Frank saying, listen, I I was quite a long way from. Where the shooter was I am not a victim. And yet, it must have an impact upon you. You're seventeen years old. A new new the people who died at least many of them and one of them a teacher Scott beagle with someone you've been close to. Yes. And at the time. When the shooting broke out. I had no idea who was involved. I mean until hours after the shooting. We didn't know how many people were killed. I went home thinking it was either two or fifty we really had no idea, and I saw videos when we were in the room of people being killed. They were going out Snapchat. People were saying yellow my school getting shot up to clearly they were not in grammar class. During the shooting itself. I had such a horrible. Piece because despite the fact that I felt like I was in danger. We had no idea where the shooter was despite the fact that I didn't know if I had lost any friends, I knew what was happening. I knew it was a mass shooting, and this is the United States one of the things you remember the United States by where the country of baseball, and and the founding fathers and mass shootings. So it was very familiar to me. I grew up with these I grew up in I was born in two thousand which was not long at all after Columbine. And since then there's there's the shooting in Aurora that sandy hook elementary Vegas. When we knew these shootings, you make a very strong point. We are familiar with mass shootings. We are even familiar with mass shootings in schools the difference. And you're part of this difference is that within hours of the shooting at parkland. There were kids including yourself who sat down and thought we are going to respond. Onto the despite doing something by being active. Just explain to me how it was that so quickly after getting home on that very day February fourteenth two thousand eighteen you an few friends decided that there was stuff you were going to do. So what happened the first night was I found myself frantically Facebook posting it was what I knew how to do. I'm eighteen years old. What do I know how to do besides social media? That's like my only skill on route even particularly great at it. But I found myself frantically posting things on Facebook and suddenly went viral. And I said, well, how could that be just some kid and the next morning? I was getting all these calls from reporters. And I noticed that several of my other friends have been doing this as well. And that day, I said, we need to flip this narrative after all these shootings, you see such similar things you see crying mothers talking about their children. You see you see people talking about how the shooter was just a nice boy misunderstood with. With only a few exceptions so much of these shootings and the same exact response. A couple of lawmakers would get kids from the shooting to stand next to them. They'd signed some Bill that did nothing and we'd be done. And I said we can't have parkland be that city now mind you there's plenty of room for crying. There's plenty of room for people talking about the horrible tragedy of loss. I understand that. But what your focus on the anger? I wanted it to be that twenty years after the shooting when people thought of park land, they didn't think of people crying they thought of people in the worst possible situation standing up and standing for something that was bigger than them. So while we haven't gotten other legislative victories. We want with gun control. We've gotten very few actually at the end of the day. There's a victory in the sense that parkland is not the city that you think of and you instantly think of people morning and people running away from the problem. I think when people hear the word parkland, they think of something larger and stronger than the shooter. I mean, in many ways, I think the greatest thing parkland did was show that it was. Stronger than anyone who could try to attack. It one of the things people. Remember from parkland that didn't happen in so many of the other school shootings. Mass shootings was the sense of putting politicians on the spot direct confrontation..

Southern Baptist leaders and workers abused hundreds, report says

"Martin. There is a reckoning afoot in the southern Baptist convention. It's the largest Protestant denomination in the US. And it's now in the middle of a sex abuse crisis this week, the Houston chronicle published a comprehensive investigation that counts. More than seven hundred victims of abuse by church leaders of the last two decades. There was a huge diversity both in the abuse type the age of victims. But virtually all of the victims were children, that's Robert down in one of the reporters on that investigation. While there have been high profile an individual sex abuse allegations against southern Baptist leaders in the past the Houston chronicle report lays out just how widespread the abuses. Ben what knowledge exactly leaders had. I don't know. But I think that it's pretty fair to say that this stuff was out there. And there was a group of vocal people who were basically yelling as loud as they could that this was a crisis. To find out. How church leaders are responding to the results of this. Invest investigation. I spoke with Russell Moore he heads the ethics and religious liberty commission of the southern Baptist convention. So how could this kind of abuse go on for so many years in so many different congregations? Well, they're number of reasons, and none of them have good from excusable one of the things that's happened. Is that a church which is supposed to be should be the safest place in the world. For people has often been a place where creditors believed that they can hide. And unfortunately, too, many churches have either had the understanding that that these sorts of things couldn't happen to them because their churches and haven't been vigilant and churches that have taken a wrong headed in view of grace to believe that somehow that means and excusing of. Predatory behavior or of not seeing the role of the civil authorities and recording right away. There are so many horrific reasons behind this happening. So you're suggesting that internally each church, which has a lot of autonomy. Even if they were aware of the allegations, they may have put religious doctrine religious notions of forgiveness over accountability. Well, I think in many cases, there was an understanding of forgiveness and grace and reconciliation doesn't match up with what the bible teaches Jesus never in anyplace excuses, the harming of vulnerable people and children and others. And so this is a human crisis. And it's also a theological crisis the Houston chronicle as part of their report says church officials did know were encouraged to make reforms and we're not interested in doing. So do you know why often in church autonomy has been used as an excuse for a lack of accountability? Our polity does make this harder. Because each jerk is independent and church doesn't answer to Bishop arena above us. But that doesn't mean that there aren't. Things that can and should and must be on. And so that that means that the hard work has to be done to see how that can happen not to Easter autonomy as an excuse. So what are some practical steps that churches, and the broader southern Baptist convention can take in this moment. It's one thing to say this is a sin. This is an outrage. How do you make sure it doesn't happen again? Well, there are a number of steps. One of those institute with training churches to know, how to respond when there is a case or a suspicion of case that has to do with also training ministers at the very end of their ministries working with seminaries and universities to do that. And then there has to be a way to connect churches to one another to know win. There has been an incident or an allegation of abuse happening at another church to prevent someone from simply moving from one church to the other undercover of darkness the Houston. Chronicle says in its report that at least one. One accused sex abuse offender remains to this day in his church position. Do you think that should be the case? Absolutely not. I think that in every case someone who is a a sex offender should not only be removed from any ministry leadership and disciplined by local congregation about should also be handed over to the civil authorities. Does that mean you will follow up on the Houston Chronicle's reporting and try to pass that message down to the to the local church? Yes, if I mean, this is alcohol the congregation directly. Do you see parallels to what's happening within the southern Baptist convention and the sex abuse crisis in the Catholic church? Yes, I do because both are a crisis of credibility. Someone should know that we may step into a church that they're in a place that is going to be safe in a place that is going to be advocating that the most strongly for those who are the most vulnerable. And so they're very much is a parallel there. What I hope is that what happens out of that is genuine reform that will ensure that the next generation of people don't have to face these questions

Tell me one time how frustrated he was with with mandatory minimum sentencing because he said a lot of the the people that I get in here, I know what it is that they need and what they need is not this. I can get them help. I in another way out. Same thing often happens when it comes to marriage problems and just wants divorce is sort of off the table and I'm not talking about in those those horrific exceptional situations that I mentioned. But just in the normal sort of we're having difficulty getting along wants. Divorce is. Off the table. You say, okay, we're not. We don't have an existential threat here. We're not. We're not arguing about whether or not we're going to nuke each other. We're just argue about how we're going to make this work better. Then you can have people who can step in and actually help you move forward. I also know that you're a big fan of country music, and I've got to confess to you. Dr. Moore's I was reading your book. A couple of songs kept coming up for me, and I'm just wondering if you know these songs, one of them is Robert Earl Cain song. Merry Christmas from the family short. Oh, that song? Yeah. Well, would you were talking about the, you know, the problems, the storm, tossed family in the beginning, and you know, just the missing this and the sloppy district summaries, and I could not get that song out of my mind. Another song that that came up for me as I was reading. Your book was was Andrew Petersons dancing in the mind? Yes. I'm wondering if you know, that's all. Well, yes. I mean, Andrew is one of my best friends and he and I are. We live about a mile away. Each other and are together all the time, and he had that song is is deeply deeply, powerful. I it really. It really is. It speaks to the reality there and I, I tell him often that I'm glad he wrote that big. 'cause there are a lot of people, I think, who just assumed that while the people that I listened to, whether it's my preacher, my my musician that I listened to. These are people who are just sort of they've got the pattern down so they know how to do all of this. And so once they figure all that out, then then their their lives are nothing like mine is, and that's, that's just not the case. It's it's a, it's a, it's a storm at some point or other for for everybody. Well, I mentioned those two songs in and your interesting country music in part to make the point that I find your writing both in this book and in your previous books to be elegant. Beyond what I often find in Christian books, which unfortunately, sometimes feel like transcriptions of the of twelve sermons on a topic that some pastor will, you know, do a twelve parts servants series that will get transcribed and each each.

"And the teenagers going to another wing of the building, and the adults go into another wing in the building makes it really difficult for kids to see the old people into see marriages that have survived, thirty forty fifty sixty years even within their own churches. I'm wondering if you think inadvertently in our attempts to reach out to folks and address their needs that we in, like I say, inadvertently contribute to that to that lack of understanding about what the bible says about marriage. I think we have now I, I'm all for age specific children's ministries and youth ministries, and even a senior don't ministries and so forth. But as they are part of the larger community and family of of the church and. I think that's, as you mentioned is one of the things that we've lost it for a long time. It was the case that in a typical church, you would have the generations split up by services. So the older people are in the traditional service and the younger people are in the contemporary service or whatever will. Now that's not even the the real issue. The issue is that churches themselves tend to be almost entirely older, almost entirely younger, and you know where I hear a lot of of grief in lament about that actually from very young Christians. So generation z. and millennial Christians who will often say, I wish that I had someone in my church who could grandparent me spiritually. And I think sometimes older Christians think that younger Christians don't want that that they, they only want to be around around people of their own generation. But that's not been my experience. The. The number one question that I'm getting from young Christians is how do I find a a mentor? I don't find a spiritual father or mother or grandfather grandmother who can kind of help me help me navigate through life. And I think some churches are starting to get to pick up on that and to try to address that. But I think I think more of us d- too well, sort of continuing along this conversation. To come back more specifically to your book in the chapter on divorce you right that you know that while divorce is permitted that that that they should be very rare, they should be, you know, deeply exceptional, exceptional in the in the true meaning of that word exceptional. And you also say that they should not be deter that that the decision to divorce should not be made exclusively by the individuals in the marriage that the church should speak into that. And if I could read a read a section of your book back to you Dr more, I cannot in the middle of crisis conclude on my own that, for instance, my spouses, sexual immorality is irrevocable. Marriages to be part of the discipline of the church. Talk about that well, and by discipline, sometimes discipline and they think punishment. And by that, I mean what the bible means which is shaping and forming and decide. Fling, and we have kind of a vestige of that from what used to be in our marriage services. Nobody really knows why when somebody will say, if there's anyone who has just caused by this couple should not be joined together, let him speak now or forever. Hold his peace. Nobody ever expects anything to happen there unless it's in some cheesy romantic comedy, where the old boyfriend stands up and says, I still love you or what have you. But why was that always there? It was there because the church is a community of witnesses who are saying, we're going to stand with you. We're going to help you in your marriage. Would you hit hard times? We're going to be here and we're going to be the people who are going to remind you of these valves and hold you accountable to these vows. And so yes, the bible has some exceptions where marriage has broken down beyond repair, but really what we ought to have our functioning church. Is where the church can help and can speak in. And because there are some situations where where, frankly, what people need is not at all a divorce, what they need somebody to come in and say, you need to be helped. You need to be mentor..

"This is where I want to drill down a little bit into your book co- come back to your doctor more is to talk about divorce. You know, a lot of that family drama is just kind of not knowing how to behave in a family that has been ripped apart by divorce. The relationships are not clear implying you've got a whole chapter devoted to divorce. And since it's since so many families, even Christian families have been affected by divorce. Can you say a little bit about that? Does does Scott a allow divorce? What are the, what are the circumstances Biblically for divorce? What about remarriage and some ways? These are very old questions, but I thought you had some fresh insights and I'd be grateful if you chair some. Well, the the whole conversation is a little more difficult right now because of the divorce culture in North America and some other parts of the world where divorce is seen as the the exit ramp. That's always. Is there on this journey of marriage. So if you don't like one another, then you then you just leave. And that has left wreckage everywhere with with children with with the witness of the church and and everything else. Having said that, I think the bible does allow a divorce in some very narrowly narrowly prescribed circumstances. And so I think there are times when divorces allowable and sometimes even when I think divorce is advisable and then in those cases, remarriage is is, is permitted. But I think in order to to to communicate that we have to have first of all, a really, really strong and robust view of what God thinks about marriage, which is to say, marriage is a is a picture of Christ in the church. And so when when you have kids, for instance, growing up in a church where they see marriages jus-. Coming together and splitting apart and coming together splitting apart. It's it's the equivalent of pudding out heretical gospel tracts does what a marriage is. It's gospel track. It's a, it's a picture of Christ in the church of PGE in spy. And so the easy lay safe, bear divorce culture that we have going on right now is really communicating more than what we know it has it as terrible human consequences. Yes, but it also has terrible, spiritual and gospel consequences. Well, Dr more this goes beyond somewhat the scope of your book. But yeah, one of the things that it seems to me and I wonder if you'll react if you get your opinion about this, is that one of the reasons that this divorce culture is infiltrated. Even the church is because of the way we do church. These days, we have churches that are that are targeted towards the millennials, for example, or or we've got churches that are that, you know are more state tradition. And all that have the, you know, the old people in when you walk into a big mega church in the first thing they do is break up the family and the kids go into one wing of the building.

Has? He picked up a glove yesterday and played catch him grounders he, is not sworn about okay Well so is, that Still. What, three weeks away You gotta think if he hasn't started swing a bat yet that they're really being, cautious with that left shoulder are you concerned No I'm not because he's a shirt everyone that he's, going to be back the play of course, he's going to say that having stood in front of those meat in those media scrums as a player and a, coach reform, not gonna sit there and divulge not sure mentioned a story that is not sure you say that which may. Be you know Can't be this, isn't good Is that fair to say I would. Think that's fair to say I would believe. That he will I'm gonna say that he's probably at least two more weeks and then we'll see okay I'll I'll say. Shot Danny just not the? Situation that they're in right now the. Way that he's played and performed He's definitely forcing goes hand Russell Moore I have they're all struggling. And he's, hitting the ball you know he hits the ball and, I don't understand these metrics but, supposedly he hits the ball the hardest in the entire major league baseball. Exit Bulow guy. Exit below he hits it One Aaron judge is to take, that pretty crazy kinda reminds me, of one cap show's over after crosstalk exit he gets especially.
