When you were young and your heart was an open book you used to hey there folks talking to Larry, taunt and this is the Eric metaxas show. I'm playing the role of Eric metaxas. Larry. You were just going to say something before we went to the break. Please go ahead. Yeah, well, you know, to your point about the absence of real absolutes, the absence of values, the absence of God. You know, I'll loosely quote our mutual friend, David berlinski, who said that what Mao did not believe what Stalin did not believe, what Hitler did not believe. What Tito did not believe was that there was a God to judge them in the next life for their actions in this one. There are very practical outcomes for how you answer the question, does God exist or does he not exist? And if I believe that you are a being an object of special creation that is made in his image and that there are absolute values and that he does stand to judge me for my actions in this life, that's going to oblige me to act in a very different way. And I think it's not just true of the individual. In other words, it's part of the culture. We used to live in a culture where those ideas were generally believed and accepted so that even if you yourself weren't sure what you believed, you had the kind of outriggers on the canoe, the culture itself really kind of promoted the idea of marriage and the idea of sacrifice and the idea of nobility and dignity and honor. These were ideas that were in the drinking water, so to speak. And they have leached out of the drinking water. And so that we really live in a culture where someone like this young man who murdered so many children, I don't know what world they live in. I don't know who the people are who were around this young man. It sounds like he had no father. His mother was pretty messed up. We used to be able to talk about that. We used to have conversations where we would say, well, listen, a healthy family life and a mother and a father who love each other or who respect each other. You know, these are the things that help us all to function when we have communities that encourage those kinds of values. But when you cease to be able to talk about those things, you get what we have now. And I think that the issue is people don't want to talk about that. You said it earlier. And if you don't want to talk about those things, if those things are anathema, you have to come up with a simple band aid solution. It's always something it's technology. Kids are messed up because we need a laptop. Every kid needs a free laptop or every kid needs access to the Internet or we need to get rid of all guns. There's some simple solution because you can't really deal with the root of it. The root of it is too big and people say, I don't want to go there. Let's just make more gun laws. But you know, Larry, it's kind of funny thing if they make more gun laws, this problem won't go away. That's the tremendous irony here. Even if they got their way with these gun laws, this would change anything. Listen, to pull up beto o'rourke. You know, and to confront governor Abbott in Texas at a press conference or a town hall meeting or whatever it was. That makes for great theater. And I'm sure that it will Garner him some votes because he looks very engaged, very passionate, very compassionate. But at the end of the day, it really does nothing to address the real issues. It's just simply, it's just simply political theater. Well, you know, again, I think most people know that there's something sick in the culture. And yet you and I can talk about it. And we can say, we know what's wrong. We don't talk about God. We don't talk about right and wrong. You can't really function as a culture, unless you're willing to deal with that. You and I also know that we wouldn't have the United States of America if it hadn't been for these moral categories. The idea of self government, virtue, all of that eventually you run out of it. If you don't continue teaching young people about these ideas, then you're on fumes. And that's really where we are right now. And the chattering classes who talk about this on TV wherever they talk about it, they really they just don't have the ability to talk in these categories anymore. They're just not going to go.

Larry Taunton Looks at America's History of Gun Ownership

"Hey there folks talking to my friend Larry Alex taunt and you can find him at Larry Alex Taunton dot com. I hope you do. If you follow, if you're on Twitter, I hope you follow him on Twitter because we're talking about a series of tweets. I don't know where there are 14 Larry. It's 14, 14 tweets. So you, you know, sort of wrote an essay in Twitter form, which is really weird. No, but I just think you made so many points and so we're talking about these mass killings and you you're making a couple of points. Number one, many of these mass killings have nothing to do with guns. There are bombs, there are cars that have been used as weapons. So the idea that it's all about guns is wrong. But even if it is about guns, it seems clear to me that if you have more people with guns, these murderers get stopped long before they get to do the damage that they have done in the absence of other guns. That's common sense. That's very basic. Well, it's become cliche, but there are reasons for cliches and that's because they're usually have an element of truth that bad guys with guns are generally stopped by good guys. With guns. Does there need to be, listen, I'm not a policy maker. You know, so I would leave it to others to work out the specifics of this, clearly we want to make sure that, you know, that gun owners, you know, our sensible responsible people that are not criminals. That said, you know, let's think about this for just a moment. Throughout most of America's history, we'll say a 150 years or so. Americans overwhelmingly owned guns and were not only were they trained to use them, but they trained their children to use them beginning at a very young

Larry Taunton Deals With Shootings by Looking at Plain-as-Day Facts

"It. We're talking about the ivaldi massacre 19 children killed, murdered. What is the, what is the main point in your Twitter thread? I know what it is, but I want you to explain it. Yeah, sure. Well, I mean, Democrats have responded to this very predictably. I mean, they've seized upon this. Politicized it and made it all about, you know, how the Second Amendment is out of date. There need to be gun seizures, buybacks, further gun restrictions, all of these kinds of things. And that led me to really start thinking Eric about the fact that just a few years ago when I was writing my book around the world and more than 80 days, I can undertake in kind of the unique task of traveling to places where there had been mass shootings, almost all of them in Europe. And so I was at, you know, went to Stockholm, and I was interviewing people there. After the truck attack, a guy stole a beer truck and he drove straight down a pedestrian, a fashionable pedestrian district and just mowed down women and children. Westminster bridge in London, London Bridge. I went to Paris to Charlie Hebdo, where there were a number of people killed just a short walk away to the back to clan where about 90 were killed in the mass shooting there. It was also in Nigeria as you well know, and I was there, you know, to bring attention to the fact that many Christians, either they're horribly persecuted, there's just been another attack on Christians in that country in the last couple of days. And so when I see all this talk about gun seizures or, you know, how if we restrict gun the ability to buy guns to access them, then it's going to solve this problem. And I know that that just simply isn't true. First of all, the shootings that we see in Europe is very difficult to buy gun in Europe. And yet somehow these terrors all manage to get

Larry Taunton Addresses Mass Shootings With a Tweet Storm

"I get to talk to my friend Larry Alex Taunton about, I don't know. I don't even know how to describe this. Larry. Can you describe what it is that we're going to talk about? Yeah, I'm a rather unhappy topic and that is mass shootings. And you know, the proposed legislation and response to these kinds of things and really what is what are the root causes of these mass shootings? Well, you sent out to talk about the tweet storm that you sent out. And why did you do this via Twitter and not as an essay? Or did you do both? No, I actually haven't done an article yet. And I knew Eric, you know, you know how this goes in our world. And issue comes up in a moment and you have some thoughts. And in the case of the shooting, I was getting a lot of questions about that after it happened in Texas. And I decided I really wanted to sit on this for a little while and really think about it. I'm not usually the I'm not usually the first guy, you know, with the breaking news and the immediate response, and it's usually because the information we get at the front end is often wrong and the thoughts are reactionary. So I'm usually the guy who chimes in a week, maybe two weeks later. And having given it some thought, I knew it was going to be traveling for the next couple of days. I wasn't going to have time to sit down and write an article, at least not immediately. So I, you know, while I'm sitting and waiting for a flight, I prepare this tweet thread and I send this out and of course it gets retweeted like mad and it's gotten huge responses, more than more than 5000 likes. And I wasn't prepared for that. But clearly I'd struck a nerve in the comments that I made regarding

Why Did Larry Taunton Visit Cuba?

"Hey folks, welcome back. We're talking to my friend Larry Alex Taunton, who knows a little bit about communism. In fact, ten minutes ago, or maybe it was two days ago, he was in Cuba. Larry, why? Were you in Cuba? Well, it's interesting, Eric, I've wanted the opportunity to get into Cuba for many, many years now, and it seems I was always blocked. And on this occasion, I had the opportunity to go for humanitarian reasons, but it gave me the opportunity to really look at the underbelly of communism there. And of course, what you find is that any communist state, kind of like Islamic states, they create cookie cutter a country. They all kind of look the same in terms of their poverty, the way their secret police operates. And in this kind of thing. But Cuba relates to our conversation about Ukraine. In explaining why we are where we are. John F. Kennedy decided that the west simply would not tolerate a Russian missiles 90 miles off of our coast. We were very nervous about having a Russian puppet state, rightly so, right off of the coast of the United States, bay of pigs happened all of these things. The efforts to destabilize the Castro regime. Well, this time it's reversed. The Russians see us. As putting a puppet state right up against their border

Larry Taunton Shares His Personal Perspective on Ukraine

"Us. Larry Alex taunt and my friend welcome. How are you? I've seen from your Twitter feed. You've been all over. Yes, I really have been all over. But one thing that I have to say before I ask you your thoughts is that the only main statement with regard to the Ukraine is that what we might call the deep state or the Obama people, almost worked hard to bring about this crisis. And so now we find ourselves in this crisis with a unprecedentedly inept leader in the executive and people say, what can we do? What can we do? Well, the first thing you have to say is what might we have done, but here we are. So you spend some time in the Ukraine, you're adopted daughter who just got married, grew up in the Ukraine. What is your perspective? You know, it's interesting here I come when I was pursuing graduate degrees and Russian history and European history of Marxism, people told me then. This was post collapse of the Soviet Union. This was by a 92 93 94 through 97. And people told me it was complete waste of time. And here we are. And suddenly it feels so very, very relevant. You know, I have several thoughts of regarding this, Eric. First of all, I would just want to say to people to be careful of a media narrative that that sets up Ukraine as this mantle of freedom. I'm not taking a side with Russia. It seems to say anything critically about Ukraine is to be perceived as being pro put. And I'm most definitely not Putin. But two things can be true here. And those two things are that both of these countries have a shared history of violence, often against each other. And they are both deeply, deeply corrupt.

"Pick up right here. We'll be right back folks more with Larry Taunton, very important conversation. Don't go away. Hey there folks, I'm talking to Larry Alex Taunton, Larry, you were just now making a larger point about how the left today, the Marxist left is trying to demonize good people and really doesn't seem to care about those people. They talk a lot about caring about people. And the fact of the matter is, when you look at it, it's kind of like what we saw with the stalinists, they talk a good game, but they are liars. They are, they are really satanic liars. In fact, muggeridge said, he never knew anyone who lied better than Walter duranty. Walter duranty of The New York Times was a genius in terms of lying. And by the way, I don't know if you knew this, but this is crazy, folks. The man who was a propagandist, working for The New York Times, a propagandist for Stalin. And for the murder of millions, was himself a satanist, like an actual satanist. I spent a lot of time with Alistair. I spent a lot of time with Alistair Crowley, John York. We'll talk about that later in the program if we get him back. But, you know, suddenly you think, well, that makes sense. Yeah, well, you know, now, unfortunately, it's not a Walter duranty. It's entire newsrooms filled with Walter duranty types. Who are pushing the narrative and smear, you've been smeared. I was thinking, how many times, particularly with the Bond hoffer and as you know, my book, the faith of Christopher Hitchens, same thing, we both have been targets of media hits, where I will bet you were just like I was your first time around. I was naive enough to think. Once I get a fair hearing and I'm able to state the truth, they'll go, oh, okay, well, we misread this. We didn't know that. And along the way, you're encountering journalists who off camera are saying to you, I know you didn't say it, but I'm going to try to destroy you anyway. These are the types that we're dealing with anymore. We're truth is made slave to a political agenda. They don't care about truth. That's the startling thing and all of this. Well, and it's important to understand that it makes ideological sense. There are people who believe in truth and love and justice. And there are other people who don't. And it's not that they don't want to. They just don't. And so they go with the next best thing. Power. How can I get what I want? While I am here, like a bug on the planet and then one day I'll be crushed and there's nothing after that. And tell me what to say. Tell me what black square to post where tell me what rainbow flag to post where tell me what to do. Tell me what I need to do to go along to get along because I don't really believe in anything and I just, I just want to be tolerant or I want people to tolerate me. When you see it in the film, mister Jones, how people are willing to look the other way. People are willing to do what's necessary. But the indictment of journalists. That is the darkest part of the film because the character played by Vanessa Kirby. She's kind of pro communist in the beginning. And then she sees what is happening. And you realize we all have to look in the mirror. We all have to ask ourselves ultimately, is there such a thing as truth? What is truth? And in the film, you see some people wake up, some people don't want to wake up. But I think today Larry, I was thinking about journalists today, do they understand that they have a sacred duty to tell the truth and in order to tell the truth, you have to believe there is such a thing, many of them don't. They don't care. I am only talking so much because I know we get to talk to Larry for ten more minutes. Larry don't go away. We're going to drag you into our two folks. If you don't get our two, go to metaxas talk dot com live streaming 24/7, you can listen to this program metaxas talk dot com we'll be right back..

Eric and Larry Taunton Discuss New Film 'Mr. Jones'

"To ask you, have you seen a film called mister Jones? And Jessica Holland was a director. I have. I saw it last night with Suzanne, and I thought, I didn't anticipate that it would be particularly good or interesting. I certainly didn't anticipate that it would speak to where we are today, it's not a film for the whole family. There's some nudity and stuff. But what a brilliant film and what an indictment of the left leaning non journalists at The New York Times and at other places, willing to promote a narrative that is nothing less than evil. I was astonished that I hadn't heard more of the film before because it really speaks to where we are today, how the journalists have the sacred role and if they abdicate millions die, let's just say it that way. Well, interestingly enough, Eric, one of the first articles I ever published was telling that particular story long before this film was made. A piece that is titled a famine of truth. And what the film doesn't tell you, some of the backstory, this deals with stalinist Russia for our listeners today and George Bernard Shaw, who was a radical communist. George Bernard Shaw was invited on a tour of stalinist Russia in 1931 and he came back and he said that Stalin had created the nearest thing to a society had Christ returned to earth. This was a kind of language that he was using. And when he was asked about the people that Stalin was killing the purges, collectivization, this kind of thing. He said, well, yes, but he's killing the right people. Well, another man went to Russia at the same time, and that was Malcolm munger ridge. Malcolm mugridge was, you know, had had roots to the Fabian society. He was a socialist. He was an atheist. He and his wife moved there free love all this kind of stuff. They bought into the socialist lie, the way many young people are in this country today. But it least mugger ridge was intellectually honest. And he began hearing stories of a great famine in the Ukraine. And they weren't allowed to go there, but mugger got away from his NKVD that is to say the KGB handlers of that era. And he went to Ukraine. And they're in Ukraine. He saw millions starving to death, cannibalizing one another. And this was, by the way, a state engineered famine. It was a false famine. It was one that was brought about deliberately by the state. And we're moving in that kind of direction. By the

"Faith. And yet as I point out in an article that I wrote about David French appease that you can find at Larry Alex dot com called David French, the principal conservative, I don't think French has a biblical leg to stand on in his case. He is continually just hammering away at middle Americans at red state Americans decent hardworking people who simply want to be left alone. And he is just as you say, he's demonizing these people. And he's doing it unfairly. And yet when someone like me, you know, pushes back at French, people say, is so unchristian of you to say that it's not unchristian for him to condemn roughly 80 million American people with tweets like this that are lies. Well, this is the thing is that I have to be careful because I want to be gracious, even I get upset, but he's denied demonizing people. Forget about me, but he's demonizing people like my mom and dad who voted for Trump. He's demonizing. People, I speak in their churches. I know these people. The idea that anyone would say that those people are plotting violence, there's no word that comes to my mind except it's despicable. It's absolutely despicable. It is so wrong that I sputter to respond to it because these are the very people who are being demonized by the deep state and the mainstream media, the insurrectionists of January 6th, it's complete nonsense. The more I look into it, the more horrified I am at the lies that have been promoted and many conservatives and Christians have gone along with the lies. It's time that it stopped, folks, you're participating in evil. If you don't stand up against this, this is a completely false narrative, it is wicked. We're at a time in this segment.

"Volkswagen back I'm talking to my friend Larry Alex Taunton, Larry, we when you just for referring to this idea that show me the Amish or the presbyterians that are driving planes into buildings or whatever it is. The fact of the matter is that people who hate us or hate Donald Trump or I don't know what their problem is, but people like David French find ways to manufacture the threat of Christian violence. And there are plenty of people in America today who because of the news sources they listen to have convinced themselves that white Christian nationalists are just a minute away from doing all kinds of violence and by the way they brought about an insurrection on January 6th, then people were killed. This is all nonsense. I mean, nonsense is a really, really nice way of putting it. It is evil to say these things. But these things are said over and over and over again. But I'm most horrified when somebody like a David French says, what he says, he wrote an article the other day I was mentioned in it toward the end. Talk about that or maybe you want to start by reading the tweets that you said. You're absolutely right. David French, you know, who was with national review and now has his own website, I think, called the dispatch or French press or something like that. This is what he tweeted on Sunday. And he seems to drop these, by the way, on days that people are gathering in their churches, where are America's most dangerous political radicals rallying in churches by the thousands in city after city and church after church. The seed for the next insurrection, the seeds for the next insurrection are being sown by the maga Christian nationalists right before our now I just want to say that is so despicable that it's really sickening to me. It's really second to me because what he is doing, I mean, look, the Marxist left is doing this. But when David French does it, it's even worse, of course. But what they're doing is they're inventing a boogeyman. They're basically saying, you see all those Jews. That's why we lost World War I. They're the trouble. Let's demonize them. And by the way, you don't like them, do you? There are many. They've done things to you. Think, think hard. There must be a reason that you don't like them, something happened here there. Let's put together a narrative to demonize that group of people that is what the Marxist left is doing with Christians today with serious Christians today. And it is evil. It is really, really evil because of course it's based on lies, but when somebody like David French does it, that's when it really becomes hard for me to believe. Does he believe? Do you think what he's writing? Has he whipped himself up into a frenzy where he thinks that people like you and me are in churches plotting insurrection? I'm plotting liberty. I am plotting the constitution. Is that insurrection? What is he where does he get this from? You know, I'm reminded of a line from JM Thompson. Historian who said this, a man has never so dangerous as when he can identify a personal grievance with a matter of principle. And so I think what is happened here is that David French, he has a personal agreement against Trump supporters. Trump voters. Who are really a by and large as people who love this country, many of them are evangelical Christians. They don't worship Donald Trump. These were people who would vote for Reagan for George W. Bush, certainly the first time around. And it feels to me that French has gone so far in his never trumpism that he just simply can't turn back. So he disguises his hatred for these people behind a veneer of a principle that is to say his own Christian faith..

"Well, it's almost funny, right? I mean, here you have a guy. I mean, all you need to know about Paul Reed in many ways is that he's a normal decent guy who is disgusted when he sees something as satanic as evil as what was described. And so he responds in the way that I would think any sane person would respond and Twitter basically says no, we can't have that here. If you're not outraged and don't think somebody who did that should be hanged, do you have a soul? What happened to you? I mean, it's just kind of an amazing thing. But here you have Paul Reed registering, I think, it can't be described as anything but sane. A sane reaction to evil. Let me give you another example so that those listening to us don't think that maybe we've blown one instance out of proportion. After Charlie Hebdo in February of 2015, you know, the terrorist attack. Muslim terrorist attack on people in the bata clan, dancing, they're there for a concert, killing those people, the Charlie Hebdo magazine blowing those people up. I wrote a piece for USA Today that they gave the title Christianity and Islam or not comparable. And the point that I was making is that, you know, show me show me the presbyterians, you know, who are flying planes into the sides of buildings. Show me the Amish who are self detonating in crowds of people. Show me the lutherans who are driving over men women and children as happened in Stockholm and in London and Berlin. Show me who those people are. Well, the Indian governments, when I tweeted that piece, again, published in USA Today. The Indian government complained to Twitter about that tweet and it was forbidden in India. So the tweet was not seen in India anymore after a complaint was made regarding it. Now, I laid out facts in that particular column. You could find it, by the way, at Larry Alex taught dot com. You can find it on the USA Today website. I wasn't inciting violence. I was simply pointing out the fact that Jesus had no slaves and he said he who lives by the sword shall die by the sword while Muhammad not only had slaves. He fought many battles. He killed many people. And those who follow that faith and model their lives after Muhammad is they're supposed to do. They're not radicals. Those are the orthodox Muslims so I simply pointed that out at Twitter said, nope, you can't say that. Okay, well, when we come back more with Larry Taunton on this subject and then we're gonna talk about something unfortunately related an article written by David French, where he tries to find a way to say that Christians are inciting violence. It's not true, but he's excited. He finds a way to, yeah, he's inciting violence. That's a fact. We'll be right back. In case you haven't been paying attention. The Biden administration has caused a financial crisis and they have no clue how to fix it. Oil prices have skyrocketed and when oil prices go up, the cost of transportation and shipping spikes leaving the prices of goods to rise. And when we're already seeing record inflation that's the last thing we need. Our economy is in trouble and you need to take steps to protect yourself.

You I want to talk to you about this monstrous monstrous article that poor David French wrote. But before we get to that, you have a friend who is in quote unquote Twitter jail right now. When I heard your story and you wrote about it at Larry Alex Taunton dot com, I said, we've got to talk about this. So tell my audience the story. Yes, Paul Reed, many of your viewers, listeners will be familiar with the trilogy. The Winston Churchill biography by William Manchester called the last Lion. Well, Paul Reed, who is a West Palm Beach, posed reporter. He wrote that third volume defender of the realm. Paul is not a conservative as you and I think of it, but by the standards of today, Paul looks like a guy on the right. But isn't this the beauty of it? The shifting and the sifting that's happening. I mean, here's a guy, he's obviously somewhat pro Churchill. Absolutely. No, you'd love his book. I mean, the last Lion series, the trilogy is wonderful. And Paul's a bestselling author that book received rave reviews. And so what happened is last week, a tweet appeared with an Iranian man parading his wife's head through town he could beheaded her. Let's be clear, folks, in case you're having issues listening, maybe there's noise in the background. I just want to be clear. What my friend Larry just said. Last week there was a tweet. Where an Iranian man. He put this on Twitter, correct? Absolutely. Holding the head of his 17 year old wife, whom he had just murdered, that was posted on Twitter. Isn't Twitter wonderful that they're allowing freedom of expression because listen, there are some people who think that beheading your young wives is a good thing. And Twitter doesn't take a position on that, so they let him post that. So here it is posted on Twitter and Paul quite rightly said this man should be hanged. Frankly, hanging would be too good for him. But Twitter immediately suspended Paul's account. So here's Paul Reed, a sensible guy who says, you know, this man should be punished. He should be hanged. Twitter suspends his account and only moments ago, did Paul get back online. And this is after maybe 8, 9 days that he's been off of Twitter. So Twitter is suppressing opinions of that kind while giving free reign to the Ayatollah. It's hard to know what to make of this. This is, I mean, look, we know that one of the ways that real satanic evil progresses is through stupidity and ignorance. That's one of the ways. And I would bet dollars to donuts that a lot of the people who work at Twitter are very dumb, very young, very ignorant, and they, in a certain moment, just think, oh, he said so and so should be hanged. That's easy. We'll get rid of it. They don't seem to understand nuance. They don't seem to understand context. I mean, they were born ten minutes ago, probably, but they have said Twitter. It's worse than that, Eric. It appears that all of this is done by bots through algorithms that picked up Paul's phrase immediately suspended him. Entirely computerized. Suspended him. For quote unquote violating Twitter rules and inciting violence. And Paul, in an effort to get back online, was always left dealing with automated responsive. There was no human being to call. There was nothing along these lines. And this is the way free speech is being regulated. Now, one could say, well, the box made a mistake, except the fact that they're constantly tweeting the excuse me, tweaking the algorithms so that they target a particular worldview, mine, yours, while magnifying amplifying, let's say the LGBTQI plus worldview, Democrat worldview, radical worldview. A Twitter was okay with that. But in this case, no, Paul Reed was inciting violence. It's absolutely absurd. Well, again, I think, look, I'm a Christian. I believe that the Bible is the word of God. And in Romans 8 28, it says, all things work together for good for those that love the lord and are called according to his purposes. Right now, when something like this happens, I think good things are happening. The madness is pushing, for example, people like Paul Reed, who wouldn't self identify as a conservative or as a Christian. Nonetheless, he is witness to the madness to the ridiculousness. And I think it's happening across this country and across the world. I think it's happening in Canada that people that ordinarily wouldn't be pushed into our camp or against the other camp. They're being forced to see the logical outworking of a culturally Marxist worldview. They're being forced to see it in a way that they weren't maybe able to see beforehand. Well, let me say this. First of all, I don't pretend to be a Paul Reed spokesman, but Paul is a good friend of mine. He would identify as a Christian. He would not identify as an evangelical. I think Paul takes his Catholic faith quite seriously. But you know, Paul is of that old school, you know, as I characterize, it liberalism that is a truly illiberal, meaning he believes that Eric metaxas should be allowed to say what Eric metaxas wants to say. That I can say what I want to say that he can say what he wants to say that Lewis farrakhan should be our Malcolm X to be allowed to say whatever they wanted to say. And so I think increasingly the conservative camp as you've just pointed out, that tent is getting bigger. And it's because more and more people who love this country are getting sick and tired of their voices being suppressed in any time they disagree with the prevailing orthodoxies of the elitists, that they're immediately labeled as terrorists. I mean, look at what's happening in Canada. That they're immediately labeled as extremists as some kind of homegrown threat to freedom. These are all absurdities. And I think more and more people are starting to realize that. I think you're 100% correct era..

Eric and Larry Taunton Discuss Scripture

"Hey there folks talking to my friend Larry Alex Taunton. Larry, you were just going to comment on I referenced the famous scripture Romans 8 28. Go ahead. Yes. I love that you quoted that verse Eric. And I love that you quoted it in full, because it is one of the favorite versus in the culture. Among unbelievers, well, all things work together for good. I recall an unbelieving friend of mine saying to me, well, all things work together for good, don't they? Quite seriously. And I said, well, no, not for you. They do for me. But they don't for you. All things work together for good for those who are called according to his perp. It isn't just anybody that that's true for. So Christians, we can lay claim to Roman state 28, but unbelievers can not. And by the way, it's only to the extent that we love God and are called according to his purpose. In other words, everything doesn't work. I have held forth on this. It's one of my bug bears as well. That when people say everything works out in the end, everything is for a reason. Hey, that's garbage. No. If you love God and try to fulfill his will in your life, then whatever happens in your life. Good, bad, whatever will work. He will weave it together for good. But it's not the case that hey, everything works out in the end. Everything's for reasons. Okay, the Holocaust happened. But

"I agree with you totally Eric. One of the positive things that I believe so that we don't utterly depress those who are listening to us. But theory that's been bandied about that I think there's some real credence to is that parents are pushing back and that the pandemic has ironically contributed to that. And it is for this reason because dad by and large have been kind of a blissfully unaware of what's going on with their children. But then suddenly their children were at home and dads were at home and dad's working in their office. We're hearing what junior was being taught on video. And they that's why you're seeing so many of these parents in these school board meetings who are protesting its fathers who are leading this revolution. And I think that's a wonderful thing because they're now becoming aware of not new nonsense. This is what's been going on for decades in school. And listen, we have to be clear. This is definitely going on in public schools, but in a lot of so called Christian schools, the teachers are themselves dumb enough not to understand some of this stuff. So many of them are going along with this. Years ago in the school where my daughter was, they were I'll just never forget this. This is when you just think this can't be. They were, I think they were singing John Lennon's imagine. Imagine there's no heaven. And I thought, this is like, are you kidding me? This isn't a Christian school. We're paying money to send our kid to a Christian school. And I just want to say, folks, this is happening everywhere. When the culture becomes corrupted, it just goes everywhere. And rather than just get mad, we have to get involved. We have to pay attention to what our kids are learning or unlearning. And we have to write letters and we have to get on the phone and we have to tell educators. No, you're not going to sing John Lennon's imagine. Don't make me come down there. But by being involved, you're quite right. This is good news, families, parents are getting involved and seeing what's going on in their kids lives, and this can only be a good thing. So you're right. That is very good news, and it is happening. It's happening, I think, in a fairly big way. And that's exciting to see. Homeschooling is booming. I think you're seeing greater efforts and ghouls to make them Christian Christian ish. And I see some very good things coming out of this, but we need a lot more of it. I do think that the scripture says the Romans 8 28 all things work together for good. All things work together for good for those that love the lord and are called according to his purposes. And as a Christian, I believe that I know that that's true. So that even the horrors attending COVID and all this, it's led to many good things. I think there are many people that they've left their dead useless churches and they're finding other churches. I think that there are many people saying, you know what? I'm going to homeschool my kids. You and I spend time with Sam sorbo, downing, Birmingham at when you hosted that wonderful conference. And Sam sorbo was talking about how many people have woken up during this season, this COVID season to the idea that whatever their kids are getting ain't any good and they're going to teach them themselves. So I do think some wonderful things are happening. Folks, I'm talking to Larry Alex Taunton. You can find him at Larry Alex, and did I say that? Taunton.

"We're going to go to a break. We'll be right back talking to Larry Alex Taunton. It's called ourselves can't trust whether you by myself. I feel like we're the same person going my way best day together now in case you haven't been paying attention. The Biden administration has caused a financial crisis and they have no clue how to fix it. Oil prices have skyrocketed and when oil prices go up the cost of transportation and shipping spikes leading the prices of goods to rise. And when we're already seeing record inflation that's the last thing we need, our economy is in trouble and you need to take steps to protect yourself. If all your money is tied up in stocks, bonds and traditional markets, you are vulnerable. Gold is one of the best ways to protect your retirement. No matter what happens, you own your gold, it is real, it is physical. It's always been valuable since the dawn of time, legacy precious metals is the company I trust for investing in gold. They can help you roll your retirement account into a gold backed IRA where you still own the physical gold. They can also ship gold and precious metals safely and securely to your house called legacy at 8 6 6 5 two 8 1903 or visit them online at legacy, p.m. investments dot com. Hey there folks, I'm talking to my friend Larry Alex Taunton, the author of many books and you can find them at Larry Alex taunt and dot com. Larry, the article that's posted at Larry Alex taunt and dot com where you write about the end of parental rights. Pick up on what you were just saying before we went to the break. It is straight out of the communist manifesto. And before someone says, oh, that probably. No, I mean, it literally right out of the communist manifesto. Karl Marx called for the abolition of the family. He called for the abolition of parental rights. And it's because from a Marxist point of view, the family is the central pillar of society. We would agree with that. They believe that in order to overthrow society, give us ultimately undermine the family. And the way the Soviets did this, of course, will buy in seeing ending parental rights and by encouraging children to report on their parents if they were not conforming ideologically to the state's directives, we're headed very much in that direction and parents need to take a stand and get their kids out of these schools. Well, we have to be clear too that and this is a lot of people, I think they're slowly waking up to this, but many people are not yet aware. But anything that BLM says, they are marxists. Marxists are by definition, atheists, and their view of the world is a view of the world without God. And when you push God out, everything that follows from the scripture goes away, the family, the sanctity of life, the fact that we are commanded by God to honor our mother and our father. These are central pillars, tenants of what it is to be a person of faith to believe in the Hebrew Bible. And the left in this country have come unmoored from whatever, if they were ever more to anything that we can call American, they are buying into what is nothing less than an atheist, Marxist worldview and part of that is the state is the enemy of churches, the state is the enemy of the family.

"Be right back with Larry Taunton. I don't know why you are brave enough you got to wait. Hey folks, I've got to tell you a secret about relief factor that the father son owners Pete and Seth. Talbott have never made a big deal about, but I think it is a big deal. I really do. They sell the three week quick start pack for just 1995 to anyone struggling from pain like neck shoulder back, hip or knee pain, 1995, about a dollar a day. But what they haven't broadcasted much is that every time they sell a three week quick start, they lose money. In fact, they don't even break even until about four to 5 months after if you keep ordering it. Friends, that's huge. People don't keep ordering relief factor month after month if it doesn't work. So yes, Pete and Seth are literally on a mission to help as many people as possible deal with their pain. They really do put their money where their mouths are. So if you're in pain from exercise or even just getting older or the three week quick start from 1995, let's see if we can get you out of pain, too, go to relief factor dot com relief factor dot com or call 805 108 three 8 four 805 108 three 8 four relief factor dot com. I use it. It works. Hey folks, if you could make money off of abortion or pornography, would you do it? I hope the answer is no. But I want to tell you Robert Nestlé the founder of inspire insight dot com. He was the president of his local pro life pregnancy center. When he discovered that he owned investments in three companies, manufacturing abortion drugs. Well, God helped him to see that he was making money from abortion pornography LGBT activism and the list goes on.

Look how it comes tomorrow that's when I have to choose. Hey there folks, welcome to the Eric metaxas show. I'm Eric M, Texas, and I have a guest, my friend, Larry, Taunton, Larry, welcome to the program. Good to be with you, Eric. You've written some you write a lot of great stuff, but recently you've written two pieces, and I said, we have to have you on the program to discuss them. One of them has to do with what happened on January 6th at the U.S. capitol. And the other article has to do with the concept of parental rights, whether the state has any say over what we teach our kids. The very fact that we have to discuss this is itself sickening because it should everybody should know the easy answer to that. But some people seem not to. So let's start with the more depressing one. Actually, you know what? I can't decide which is more depressing. I have to joke, but this is some tough stuff. Let's talk about what happened at the capitol and what you have to say about that. Yeah, you know, just a couple of days, Eric after the events of January 6th, 2021. I was contacted by a couple who had been there at the Trump rally and they wanted to tell me their stories. So I met them in a local that is to say Birmingham, Alabama coffee shop. And listen to their story. And I found their story to be quite credible and that has been published on my website at Larry Alex hawton dot com, but the story that they told is the one that's very, very different from what you're hearing from major media outlets. I mean, surprise, right? We're shocked to discover that. But the story that they told is of a full gathering that there was no encouragement of in violence that they saw that there was no encouragement to storm the capitol. And rather they told the story of people who were their prayerfully who were singing songs. They believed and you can dismiss them. If you wish, but they believe that their own crowd had been infiltrated by people who were held bent on causing trouble in blaming it on Trump supporters. It's a very compelling story. Larry, what you just said is something that I've heard from others about what happened that day. There's a guy named Nick Cersei made a film called capital punishment, which I recommend. Where he interviews a bunch of people who were there. He was himself there, who reports something similar. And look, let's be honest there is zero question that antifa infiltrated those crowds. The question is the details. How many in antifa? What did they do? What didn't they do? Who else infiltrated? Anybody who's paid any attention, understands that whatever narrative we've been getting is a lie and it's an offense in the United States of America to be subjected to lies about something this important. So I'm not surprised that that's what your friend saw. Yes. I agree with you wholeheartedly. I mean, first of all, let's just deal with the fact that Democrats have turned this into a kangaroo court that they have put people into prison, thrown away the key. On fraudulent trumped up evidence. While they've done absolutely nothing about Portland, Wisconsin, Chicago, any number of cities all across the United States, where there's no question about who was perpetrating the violence and what was taking place. So for me, listening to this couple, I found it very powerful because these are people I've known for many years. And they're hardworking good citizens. Who love their country and who simply wanted to attend a rally with like minded people where they celebrated this country. And offered a lawful protest to what they believe was a stolen election. Yeah. And the reason they believe was a stolen election was because it was probably a stolen election and not to protest something like that. Not to ask the government to deal with it, is unconscionable. So these were the handful of people in the country who were doing the right thing and they're being smacked down. How do you deal with it as a Christian and as an American? Because this kind of injustice makes my blood boil. It grieves me so deeply that I hardly know how to make sense of it. Well, I think the way they were trying to deal with it is the way Christians deal with it. And that is to say that there was lawful protest. It was peaceful protest. It was a celebration of this country. And listen, I say that slightly tongue in cheek, but only slightly. The Second Amendment among conservatives is a cherished amendment that is the right to bear arms. And it is because they believe all the other amendments hinge on one. And I think of a bunch of conservatives have wanted to storm the capitol. I think they'd have done it very differently. Well, isn't that obvious, Larry? I mean, this is what I find ridiculous. I mean, if you want an insurrection, there would have been nothing easier than to have an insurrection. There was none. I mean, it's rather obvious that a handful of people could have pulled that off. They didn't, because no one had planned to do anything like that. So the idea that there was this big scary thing that happened, nothing happened. Ashley babbitt was killed by a pathetic excuse for a police officer who didn't know how to handle his gun or how to handle the pressure of the situation. That's what happened. Yes. Well, interestingly enough, this couple and they were on the front steps. I asked them if they had heard gunshots. And they said they didn't, that it was their son at home with texted them. And told them that someone because they said outside, if this was a some kind of planned insurrection, he said, the crowd wasn't done on it. They didn't know anything about it. They work involved in that. And at that particular time, they decided to leave because they sensed something was going wrong. And they were already under the impression that antifa BLM someone FBI Democrat operatives had already infants or traded their crowd and they had become aware that there would probably be some kind of attempt to blame them for what's happening. It's extraordinary. I just want to say as a Christian, we've got to keep our eyes on God because this is tough stuff to have to deal with this in America. You expect this in other countries potentially. But certainly not in this country. If people want to read your article and I hope they do, they should go to Larry Alex Taunton dot com and they can follow me. Yeah,.

And if it weren't for its scotch and being able to go to the lines of any freedom to do this for free, they shut down a glorious homeless ministry. That's been operating for 9 decades. Scott, how did you I mean, when you first heard this, it is kind of crazy. Doesn't just seem to go against basic common sense. Why would this person want a job with a gospel oriented homeless organization? And then why would this person Sue you? What do you think is going on? Well, Eric, it's hard to know. But all I can say is, I think God for alliance defending freedom. You know, when the Washington state Supreme Court said, you know, the constitution does not protect our ability to be able to hire people who share our beliefs. We knew two things. One, we needed to ask the U.S. Supreme Court to hear our case. And two, we needed a help. You know, we're a rescue mission. You know, we have tight budgets. And so having a partner like ADF has really been an answer to prayer. I simply don't think people understand how serious this is. That's why I wanted to have you guys on. That's why we on this program are supporting ADF. We're in a war folks for freedom. The idea that these lawsuits are even happening should tell you that we're living in an absurd world, and we need to fight. If we don't fight, we're going to have a secular tidal wave destroy every vestige of faith and insanity and freedom in America. We're basically out of time, but just the final word on what you're doing at ADF. Yeah, ADF is the world's largest legal organization dedicated to protecting religious freedom, free speech, the sanctity of life, parental rights and marriage and family. We represent clients just like Scott all over the country. And we're asking the Supreme Court regularly to hear cases very similar to Scott's, and we depend on a 100% of the support of listeners just like those who view them. I'm gonna give out the phone number..

Jake Warner Describes How Alliance Defending Freedom Is Protecting America

"Sometimes we bring on folks from the ice spending freedom to help explain what it is that they do in case you don't already know. I have a with me, Jake Warner, who's a legal counsel with the alliance defending freedom and their client Scott chin. Guys, God bless you for coming on the program. Jake explain to my audience what this issue is about. Everywhere we look, there are issues like this. They're crazy. And if it weren't for 80, if the government would be getting away with murder, almost literally, go ahead and explain what this case is about. Sure. Thanks, Eric. A few months ago, the Washington Supreme Court said the state could punish a religious organization for declining to hire someone who did not share the religious faith of the organization. The Seattle's union gospel mission serves the homeless in the city of Seattle and they've done so for nearly a century. But back in 2017, a lawyer tried to apply for a position there, but he did not share their religious organizations beliefs. He didn't attend church. He didn't agree with the religious lifestyle requirements of the mission and he even applied trying to change the mission's religious beliefs to understandably the mission went with a different candidate. But this a lawyer turned around and sued the mission and the case went all the way up to the Washington Supreme Court and the Washington Supreme Court said that the mission could be punished for declining to hire this person. He did not share their beliefs. And we've now asked the U.S. Supreme Court to weigh in and hear this

"Every article I write gets gets housed there. Every interview this one will eventually be posted there. So you can find me right there. This is really important, folks. We need to understand what we're talking about. And what Larry's talking about in this article called David French, the principal conservative published in the spectator. It's a biblical issue. And here's the issue. Many Christians, particularly evangelicals, they're so focused on scripture, they think that they take this little proof text. And they say, it says you're not supposed to lie. Well, who cares what that says? What about what the whole council of scripture says? If any part of scripture, in any way, contradicts the rest of scripture, you need to get the context. So there have been times barnhall for looked deeply into this. He wrote a book called ethics. And I write about this in my book on Bon hoffer. He says, if a teacher says to an 11 year old girl in his class, hey, your father is a bum in a drunkard, isn't he or offer says in that context that girl does not owe the teacher or the listening class the truth. This is a little bit more complicated. And if you're not prepared to really think biblically in the power and the wisdom of the Holy Spirit, be careful because the enemy wants to use scripture against God. He did it when he quoted scripture in the wilderness to Jesus. So I just want to challenge my fellow Christians and conservatives. Be careful because people's real lives are at stake, whether it's the Jew that's being hunted by the Gestapo, whether it's somebody like Sasha, suffering in a Ukrainian orphanage or whether it's the innumerable Americans and people around the world who are suffering horribly because Biden is ostensibly the president of the United States. Be careful. Let's use a real example Eric. For example, French, again, David French, a writer formerly of national review, and now with the dispatch, here's a guy who postures as a conservative Christian who's who's arguments in his articles are rooted in scripture. This is the claim. He of stated very clearly that he hoped Biden would win the election. And then recently, he wrote an article to comfort Christians who are concerned about the very real possibility that the Hyde amendment, which prevents an additional 50,000 abortions a year that the Biden amendment is excuse me. The Hyde amendment is now imperiled. And so you're going so on the one hand, you have you have told the Gestapo that you have Jews in your basement. And now you're ringing your hands and saying to everyone, now listen, I know that this looks really grim and it looks bad because heading into the basement with their machine guns, but hey, God is sovereign. And this kind of stuff is simply outrageous. And I felt like it was necessary for someone to take it on. Well, you always do that. And that's why I'm just so proud of you and happy to call you friend. And people need to know you and your work, Larry Alex Taunton dot com. Check it out, folks. I also want to say, you know that I debated David French twice on the issue of Biden versus Trump. And it's not anything less than astonishing to somebody like me. The moral calculus that some people some people are willing to twist themselves into pretzels. And sometimes I think maybe because I was raised by working class European immigrants, who saw evil and they don't experience it occupied. They actually think about what will happen if sometimes you have to break a little rule to save a life. Jaywalking, for example, there are people that would say, I mean, there are people who would say that jaywalking is a rule. And clearly, according to Romans, you know, the authorities are establishing the rules of establishment. So if I have to run out on the street to save a Tod from being hit by a truck, I'm going to trust God sovereignty. I don't believe that God would ask me to break a rule to save a life. Folks, that's the kind of thinking that leads people to hell. Well, I'm heading to the chase by saying that we need to have the whole council of scripture. We need to have the wisdom and discernment of the Holy Spirit. And this kind of ferric thinking, which you've written about, Larry, in this article, we need to recognize destroying America. It's hurting the church. It's hurting human beings. It's serious. Let's bring Jesus into the conversation here on this very topic. You know, you mentioned the pharisees and there were those who you'll recall that they criticized Jesus. And I think it's John chapter 5 when he heals the man at the pool of Bethesda. And Jesus deliberately did it on a Sunday. He deliberately did it on the Sabbath. And to provoke this discussion with them. And they're ready to condemn him. You violated the Sabbath. You went and broke a rule and healed that guy. And Jesus is responses to effectively say to them so for the sake of this rule, you would have him wait an additional 24 hours or whatever. And I love how Jesus dealt with this very issue when he said the Sabbath was created for man, not man for the Sabbath. Again, the point isn't that you and I are moral relativists. We aren't. But your principles can become an object of worship when they become untethered from the God that they must be anchored to. We're going to have to leave it there. Larry, we praise God for you. Folks go to Larry Alex Taunton dot com. We will continue this conversation. The very same conversation with John Smurf, don't go away. Hey,.

"Was just wonderful. Tell us about the substance of the article, the idea. Very important subject folks. Yes, the name of the article is David French, the principal conservative and many of the people who are watching who are listening may or may not know who David French is, but David French wrote for the now wrote for national review for many years now he's chief editor at the dispatch. And he seems to really specialize in criticizing Christians who might have had the nerve to vote for Donald Trump. And I want to be clear, that's going to Christian vote for Donald Trump. That makes no sense. That's crazy. Everybody knows Christians should vote for the pro abortion Biden. Don't everybody, everybody knows that. Before you get too far, in your article, you refer to something, man. I got hot under the collar. You referred to when you were adopting your beautiful daughter, Sasha from the Ukraine. If you don't mind, start with that, because this is I don't want to attack David French, okay? I know David French, but it's the idea he and others have taken what you are sort of ironically referring to as a principal stand. It doesn't strike me as a principal stand. It strikes me as something that wants to be a principle stand in that fails. Tell us just to start. What he said about your adoption of your wonderful daughter who just got married, God bless you. Let me be clear. He didn't personally criticize the adoption of my daughter, Sasha, rather, I was using that as an example of the same type of quote unquote principle conservative. When you're in the process of adopting such a little more than a decade, a go, every Ukrainian government's official that we dealt with Sasha had been abandoned at birth and raised in three different Ukrainian orphanages. Every Ukrainian government official who was involved in the process, we had to bribe, but for one, every single one of them. And when I wrote about this in my book, the grace effect, which you wrote a lovely endorsement for, by the way, there were a number of Christians who said, Larry, I can't believe that you paid bribes. I mean, I would never do that. I mean, if that's what it took to a dog, I would never do that. And I thought, you know, what a monstrous pride that says such a thing. I mean, basically, they were saying that for the sake of their principles, they would deny Sasha a home. Their principles were more important than she was. And the point that I'm simply making in that is I was comparing that in my article about David French to the unborn. Because David French said that he hoped Biden won the election. He wanted to see Biden win the election because he found Donald Trump to be somebody who had no character. He believed that Donald Trump was somebody who he just simply could not abide the thought of Donald Trump winning. And he preferred a person like Joe Biden. Now, to me, this is absolutely astonishing. That anyone who would even make the pretense of being a conservative, much less, a principled Christian conservative, I find it very troubling. But the other thing that I found troubling about this Eric is the fact that French uses scripture to back a positions of this kind. And in so doing, he kind of, you know, he hearkens back to the theocratic days of ancient Israel. And I thought now listen if you're going to make that kind of argument that Donald Trump has to live up to the standards of ancient Israel, theocratic Israel, then how in the world, David French, can you find yourself wanting to see somebody like Joe Biden or one of his favorites, Mitt Romney? You know, who it makes, you know, it was a Mormon. And definitely would not fall under the standards of a king of Israel. These kinds of things. And I've just found to be very dubious arguments, and I have noticed many Christians who have felt very strongly about what French has said, positively or negatively, but those on the negative side who felt like they're ill equipped. Really to fight back. So I thought, I'll do it for you. Okay, let me be clear, to me, it's tragic comedy that my Bonn offer book is selling better than any of my other books because the parallels have become so dramatic it's sick. When you talk about this, we call it virtue signaling today, right? Yeah. Evangelicals have been really criticized for only focusing on themselves. A very selfish view of the gospel that talks about my Salvation, my sensation. My relationship with Jesus and everybody else can go to hell, literally your figuratively. So if you go to the home of a Christian of that ill in Germany and say, are you hiding a Jew in the basement? Do you have any information about Jews? Rather than lie and preserve the life of a human being made in God's image. They would burnish their own moral stature by saying, no, no, no, I don't believe in lying. Go take the Jew kill that you murder the Jew, murder juice family. In other words, it's not the gospel. You are required by God to lie in a case like that, because morally speaking, not lying, is infinitely worse than lying. It doesn't even become a lie. Do you owe the Gestapo the truth about this bun off of rights about this in his ethics book? And this is the issue when somebody says, you know what? Your daughter, Sasha, let her rot in the Ukrainian orphanage. God will take care of her. You have to be clean. Don't ever bribe anybody. Don't ever give money to somebody to get her out to bring her to America so she can have a better life. It makes absolutely no sense. And I just want to be clear folks. This is theological error. We're not coming after David French per se. This is theological error. And if you make a theological error, unfortunately, you're playing into the hands of the devil, who likes to see people rot in orphanages who likes to see an economy in a country like America ruined by somebody like Joe Biden because he happens not to be Donald Trump. We have to be real clear Larry. It's not about David French. You're using him as an example. Unfortunately, he plays. Exactly. Perfectly. But there are many Christians who have this attitude and I salute you my friend for clarifying this in our two today, I'm going to be talking to John smirk about your article because it is.

"A young man had the most wonderful conversation with him about the country. And sometimes when he talked to normal people, you realize, they know what's going on. Don't kid yourself, folks. Don't listen to the news too much. All right, before we go to Larry Taunton, we've got a couple of things. First of all, an hour or two we got smear rack before that. We have asked my taxes. Every Thursday on this program, we do an app tax. Oh, yeah. It gets crazy. I do my best to answer the questions. I often fail, what are you going to do? I got to make a correction to the other day I was on flashpoint with Jean Bailey, and I told the audience there, as I tell you now, you can pre order is atheism dead. And I'm warning you folks. This price will not last. For 45% off, if you go to my website Eric metaxas dot com. People often don't take the trouble to scroll down or to look. Most people did. But those who didn't said, how can I get it for 40? I don't see it. I don't know. You have to scroll down a little bit on the book page. And when you see the baker book link, that's the 45%. You got to work to get 45% off. It is so cheap. It's 1497. It's a $28 book, hardcover. It is a gorgeous book. Salem books has done a gorgeous job with it. I only wrote it. So yeah, can I show I'm gonna show it, this is the book. I'm showing it if you're watching on video. This is the book. Is atheism dead. And if you're not watching on video, that's still the book. Yeah. Okay. It is. So we want to say also, we're doing a fundraiser as you know with ADF. I posted a picture on okay, here's why you need to sign up for my newsletter. I have the most amazing photograph of Donald Trump with me and Sean foy with the hats that he gave us. Some of which he signed, we already gave that one away. I said, I'm going to sign any other hat with the pen that he used. He gave me the hats. He gave me the pen, he used the pen. I'm gonna sign the hat. Anybody who wants to give $2000 to the lys defending freedom folks, it simply doesn't get better, more important than religious liberty in America. And if you don't understand that, take it from me, America is going to go down in flames unless we the people stand up for liberty and at the heart of all liberties is religious, liberty. You're right to behave in a way consonant with your conscience with your religious beliefs with your atheistic beliefs with your beliefs. Folks, this is at the heart of America. I write about it in my book if you can keep it. If we don't understand this and fight and I really mean this, fight, send emails to Delta complaining. Let people know. Be polite, but make your voice heard or it all goes down in flames. And by the way, Biden is going for the record of worst president. He's working very hard to destroy Christmas this year. And I think he's going to do it. I'm pretty sure with the supply chain issues and inflation. He's going to be able to be well, he has to actually be president to be worst president. So I think it's still Obama. I think technically because he was certified technically he is president. Even I have come to believe that that's possible in America. But my faith is in God. Otherwise I would despair. Oh, and tomorrow we've got Dennis prager. Oh, my gosh. Whatever you do, whatever.

And i'm going into a hotel and who'd i see you and you. The two of us have been discussing this possibility of trying to bring together some christian influencers and sort of strategize about how we can organize people on the right christians in particular and You know give them some much lead into answers.

You find registration about that on my website larry. Alex taunton t. a. u. n. t. o. n. dot com. And what we're going to be doing. Their the conferences called understanding. What's happening in america. And what we can do.

We're gathering together as as a speakers as authors as fishing influencers to put our heads together into to try to figure out. You know how we respond. Because i think what we're seeing in. The culture is a case of the tail wagging the dog. While there's no question about it. Well let's again for my audience. Because i i know. A lot of people may be able to get the birmingham alabama on july twenty third twenty fourth and twenty fifth. Give some details about who. Who will be there. Besides you and me for example. Well sam sorbo. The wife of kevin sorbo you know. Hercules the actor. Sam turns out. he's the husband of sam sorbo. yeah. I don't know how that works. That's crazy that's gotta be guy. Can you imagine what are the odds. Sam sorbo is the wife of kevin sorbo and kevin. Serbo is the husband of sam sorbo. We're not making this up seriously. I was with them recently at the nrp and they are the reason. I always. I them like crazy because they're way too good looking to be that smart. They're both brilliant.

Because i would not wanna follow see o'brien's seal bryant is a is a tremendous speaker fascinating guy and loves america and i think people will will be fascinated by. Here's perspective and then. Tom lasko thomas up mover and shaker in the southern baptist convention which is the of course the largest protestant denomination in the united states. And there's an awful lot that's been taking place in the southern baptist convention that is really a microcosm of what's happening in the culture. I mean again. It's a case of the tail wagging the dog. i mean the majority of southern baptist. Churches are quite conservative But there you're seeing progressives target the levers of power in order to to control you know the the entire denomination. And i think a lot of people are going to be just fascinated here from tom from c. l. From sam sorbo from you. Hopefully for me. I get to play samuel. L. jackson on this stacking together. My avengers fanning them into a flame. But i think people will will be really encouraged by people.

Serbia, Montenegro expel each other's ambassadors

"Neighboring countries expelling each other's ambassadors is not normally the prelude to anything good so montenegro. Booting out serbia's ambassador. On saturday with belgrade responding in kind raised alarm bells in the balkans which is the way of alarm bells in the balkans raised alarm bells elsewhere but serbia has now decided against declaring montenegro ambassador persona non grata amid much talk of goodwill between neighbors. So what is behind this spat and is serbia's man in pod. Grits still packing his bags. Well let's get the latest from our man in the balkans delaunay guy. Montenegro kicked this off by throwing out. Serbia's ambassador so let's start there. What had serbia's ambassador done to upset them. He said what they thought the provocative things about the notion of the montenigrin state. And he's like saying they sort of things and he said them once too often it would seem his most recent touch rent so this is a guy called vladimir bolshevik. Choose serbia's man. In montenegro he described this is the raw the flowery way that they not oppressive poverty. That the decision by montenegro authorities in one thousand nine hundred thousand nine to unify with serbia was a liberation and a free expression of people's will to unite with fraternal serbia Now the one thousand nine hundred union of montenegro with the what was then the kingdom of serbs croats and slovenes clue. There's no space for montenegro. In the name of that particular state Has not ever gone down. Well in history with a certain section of people montenegro Least of all those who say that we are an independent state became independent and twenty six and are larger neighbours. Should stop meddling in our as i mean. This is not terrifically. Diplomatic behavior from an ambassador. Was he going anywhere with this. Or was this the consequence of having perhaps over enjoyed one or two receptions. I couldn't possibly say on this. There's a lot of very undiplomatic behavior in this neighborhood. The those one diplomat in in he used to boast about spearheading a digital diplomacy initiative and this digital diplomacy initiative seem to entirely consist of insulting serbia on twitter. So that's that's the level of things. Here and keen. Listeners may have noted that in the past year relations between serbia and montenegro have been a little bit more tense than the normal in large part because of the montenegrin presidents decision to to launch an attack on the serbian orthodox church montenegro. He lived to regret this decision when his party. Then lost the parliamentary election in august. But this this rows being going on all year and the being little pokes and nichols and needles Going backwards and forwards between the two sides. Serbia as i read it has now currently given the montenigrin representative in belgrade. A reprieve at which point. I think we do need to give it up for the montenegrin ambassadors name. How can you refuse. A man called tarzan milosevic willing to in any religion be wrong. Any relation to any relation to either taza and milosevic is what i'm asking. I didn't think so. And this is not unusual. Balkan name by the way so. He's got very unusual parents. All these parents who thought that their son would go on to do unusual things which in some ways he has. I mean serving is montenegro. Ambassador to belgrade is something that wouldn't have been on their minds. Perhaps when taunton was A came into the world as some sixty years ago say but anyway He's got his reprieve. It would seem launch because of serbia's president alexandrovich There was a press conference in belgrade on sunday evening. At which prime minister. John boehner delivered. The word from the president's office said he decided the some things are more important than diplomatic protocol and he would extend the hand of fraternal friendship To montenegro which bearing on everything that's gone before was a little bit ironic. So is this actually going anywhere. This wanna are poised for a new era of rancor between serbia and montenegro or is this more one of your teacup the storms. There's actually something going on behind the scenes. Which is we're bound to have. A new government installed in montenegro. So i mentioned the election in august. We the government hasn't been installed yet. It's due to be installed tomorrow and this new government is fairly serbia friendly. It's it's a funny old coalition. The largest party of which is very friendly towards serbia and russia and they've accused the outgoing administration which is dominated by miller djukanovic. Even though he's the president and not the prime minister of stirring the pump basically they're saying the trying to increase divisions within montenegro society between ethnic serbs and montenegrins and with neighboring serbia before they got booted out of government formerly Tomorrow and i think that's quite a reasonable analysis. Delaunay thanks as always joining us. That was monaco's balkans correspondent god alone
