I pray you have had a good weekend. As we head in to Monday I have several things to share with you. The events here and abroad do not ever “take a weekend off”, which is why we must be sober and vigilant for our adversary the devil roams about like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour. A good friend of mine sent me a link of an interview with Paul Craig Roberts on the King World News. He discussed the current situation in the Ukraine. Several weeks ago Dan Gainor and I discussed what was happening there and I said that I felt that the side that was the insurgents was not the democratic side that we were being led to believe. You can listen to Paul’s interview here
After listening I have invited Mr. Roberts to come on to the program. Here are some of my thoughts and questions that I would pose, I had felt that the picture we were being presented was a false reality. That the destruction of the government there was for the purpose of creating total chaos. Do you believe that Obama has done this intentionally to try to bring down the US as so many have said. Obama’s anti colonial and apparent communist leanings seem to be driving his actions. You mention the “fools in Washington”, is this an assault on the current regime? Is it more evidence that our form of government has been infiltrated for quite some time in an effort to globalize the world? Why would a globalization effort by an apparent tyrant like Obama who is obviously working in concert with others to remove America as the lone world super power be challenging Russia? Is this a ploy to use Russia, which next to China would have to be the greatest threat to world domination an act where in there are simply two sides working together against the middle? If Obama is a communist and I believe that he is, who wanted to destroy the US and I believe that he does, could Putin be the rock that he will beat America against? Are these truly ignorant policy decisions or are they calculated and measured to give Putin a platform to make communism appear to be the answer? NBC during its olympic coverage touted Russia’s communism as the answer. Communist propaganda and the Saul Alinsky model requires someone to create the chaos and then the communist to ride in on a white horse as the hero to save the day. Is this the scenario that we are watching unfold? These questions are some of the thoughts I am having on this current world issue. A potential nuclear engagement is heightened by a military intervention that pits the USA versus the Soviet Union. Mr. Roberts suggests this as a possible outcome, but is this left over fear from the cold war days or a real threat? Only the next few weeks will tell us.
There have been a lot of debates on the Convention of States, from the viability to the possibility of the destruction of our constitution. These are good debates to have and that is why I have had Michael Farris and also Mark Meckler on the program. Our Republic and our Constitution demand that we discuss and debate, but also that we educate our selves on the issues. I invite you to visit the two links below and listen to the interviews.
These gentlemen have done a really good job of answering questions and laying out the justification for their efforts to bring about this Convention. The John Birch Society has said this is a dangerous endeavor and that those calling for the convention are divisive and will bring the country to ruin by dividing the conservative effort. What I see is an establishment GOP that has sworn to destroy the true conservative movement at all costs. There is no difference between the mainstream GOP and the left wing Democratic party. Paul in Romans 1 writes, 32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
Participating with those who are walking in darkness or simply going along to get along share the same guilt. Certainly there are assumed risks in a Convention of States, the argument that if the current regime is not going to follow that Constitution now what makes us think they will follow new amendments might lead us to believe that “resistance is futile”. Well I choose hope over despair, courage over fear and faith in God above all else. I believe the efforts to lead an Article Five Convention are being led by Godly men and women. I was so impressed and encouraged in having Mark on the program as I had limited exposure to him before our interview. His articulation of the divine inspiration of the founding documents of this nation. His statements on the core TEA Party beliefs being based on God from the beginning were so refreshing and encouraging. Please listen closely to these interviews and then ask your questions. Their web site has opportunities for questions to be asked and answered.

On the Monday show in the first half hour I will be joined by Dan Patrick. Dan is hoping to be our next Lt. Governor for the State of Texas. He has served as a State Senator since 2007. I met Dan in San Antonio and listened intently to his personal story and his vision for the state. I look forward to having him on the program to share his views and share why he is running for Lt Governor. Immigration, border security, education, economics, moral foundation, keeping Texas blue by removing Democrats from Chair positions in a Republican majority State Senate and protection from Federal Government encroachment are all critical issues. Dan will address these in the time we have allotted.
On the second half of the program I continue to have attorneys from Liberty Institute join me to discuss the attacks on our religious freedoms. On Mondays show I will be joined by Hiram Sasser, Esq., who is the Managing Director of Strategic Litigation for Liberty Institute. Mr. Sasser’s practice focuses on First Amendment and other constitutional and civil rights issues.
Mr. Sasser successfully argued before federal and state appellate courts, federal and state district courts, and the Texas Supreme Court. His past and present clients include The American Legion, VFW, Association of Christian Schools International, Fraternal Order of Eagles, Dr. James Dobson, Jewish Educational Center, Southern Baptist Convention, National Association of Evangelicals, and various state and local government entities and officials. In addition to his legal duties, he develops, coordinates, and implements successful media strategies on behalf of his clients. This includes numerous appearances on ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox News, CNN, and the BBC as well as being heard on various radio stations throughout the United States, Asia, Africa, and Europe.
Prior to joining Liberty, Mr. Sasser graduated summa cum laude from Oklahoma City University School of Law, where he received recognition as the “Outstanding Graduate.” He earned his bachelor’s degree from Oklahoma State University. His military service includes serving as Headquarters Commander, a Company Executive Officer, and Training Officer in the United States Army Reserve.
On todays program we will discuss the situation involving Craig James and his sudden termination from ESPN for statements he made during his State Senate run in support of marriage between a man and a woman.
“Fox Sports’ firing of Craig James because of his sincerely held religious beliefs concerning marriage, beliefs held by millions of Americans, constitutes religious discrimination that violates the law. In order to avoid that claim, Fox executives now contend what their national spokesperson said to the media at the time of the firing was false. Someone’s not telling the truth. This action will get to the bottom of those contentions. Regardless, Fox Sports is responsible,” said Jeff Mateer, Liberty Institute General Counsel.
In the complaint, James accuses Fox Sports of religious employment discrimination based in part on Fox’s report to the media that he was terminated for comments made about his support for the biblical view of marriage while running for the U.S. Senate in 2012. Fox told The Dallas Morning News: “We just asked ourselves how Craig’s statements [from the earlier Senate race about same-sex marriage] would play in our human resources department. He couldn’t say those things here.”
Mr Sasser joins me to discuss these issues. Did Fox Sports hiring of Tim Tebow a prominent Christian have anything to do with this case? Tim has done little since being hired and this opportunity seemed a little abstract at the time. One has to wonder if there is a connection, since Tebow will not actually have any duties to perform until early next fall.
On another note because of the radio program I am given access to preview certain films in preparation for interviews I will do leading up to the release of these films. Recently I had the opportunity to view two such films. First, I watched Acts of God. This is a very powerful film dealing with tragic loss and seemingly unexplainable events that lead to heart wrenching and honest encounters with faith, hope, love and forgiveness. I will have Bob Russell on later this month prior to the films release to discuss this powerful film.
I also had the opportunity to preview God’s Not Dead. I have had David A R Wright on the program before and he will join me again to discuss this film. It is based on some actual legal cases involving students being subjected to discrimination based on their religious beliefs on college campuses across this nation. At the end of the movie there at least 20 cases listed. It is truly a cinematic delight. Well acted, well scripted, visually appealing and has a powerful message. I strongly recommend yo watch it when it hits theaters on March 21st.
Coming up this week, on Tuesday I will be joined by Darin Selnik from Concerned Veterans of America with a breaking story on the destruction of Military Veterans Medical Records. This act of destruction may in fact be illegal and this story just broke on the 27th of February. What is the motivation? Is there evidence in these files that shows medical experiments to these service members that the government needs to destroy? What about on going care? Medical history for the sake of maintaining long term care integrity? Join us as we discuss this. Then Will Estrada is back to discuss the Romeike case and give us an update on the Supreme Court decision on whether to hear the case or not.
On Wednesday I begin my two hour version of Chosen Generation. We start with Georgia Purdom from Answers in Genesis to discuss the recent debate between Ken Hamm and Bill Nye. Why is Bill Nye suddenly the poster boy/speaker for all things evolution and scientific? Who won the debate and what was Ken’s real goal? Then Jonathan Saenz will join me, President of Texas Values, to discuss the election and the impact of Judge Orlando Garcia’s ruling. Steve Ertelt, Editor of Life News joins me on Thursday to expose Margaret Sangar and the true intent of Planned Parenthood from the beginning. Then Brandon Chase winner of The Voice for 2013 comes on to discuss how faith has played a role in his success and the hidden story behind The Voice and its family friendly, faith friendly environment.
It looks to be an exciting week on Chosen Generation radio. Please consider being a part of partnering with me to keep the show going. I have had several unexpected financial blessings for which I am truly grateful. I still need to meet some consistent monthly numbers as I taken on this additional hour and as I continue to look for opportunities to expand the reach of the program. Fifty people at $20 a month or twenty people at $50 gets me to the same number and that is what I need to cover this new expansion. Thank you for your prayers and support. God bless you and remember together we can turn this thing around. www.pastorgregyoung.org
