Here at MinistryWatch we bring you news about Christian ministries, as well as the latest in charity and philanthropy, news that we examine from a Christian worldview perspective. Our goal is to help us become better stewards of the resources God has entrusted to us. These mid-week “Extra” episodes are a chance for us to go deep with a particular topic, and today I'm pleased to have back on the program David French. David wrote an article about Liberty University that I wanted to explore more deeply. But first, a bit of David's background. David French is a graduate of Lipscomb University in Nashville, and also of Harvard Law School. He spent many years as an attorney with Alliance Defending Freedom. He was a staff writer for the National Review from 2015 to 2019, and he currently serves as senior editor of The Dispatch. Before we go, I want to remind you that you can find the article we discussed today, about Liberty University, over at The Dispatch, where David is a senior editor. I'd like to add in closing that MinistryWatch has published nearly 100 articles in the past two years that either mentions or features Liberty University. To find them, just go to MinitryWatch.com and type “Liberty University” into the search engine. Our Kanakuk coverage, which now amounts to more than 20 stories, as well as our coverage of the Southern Baptist Convention and other organizations we discussed today, can also be found at MinistryWatch.com. Finally, a reminder that because of the Thanksgiving holiday, we will not be posting an episode on Friday, and that means this will be the last episode of the podcast before Giving Tuesday. If you've found the work of MinistryWatch to be a blessing to you, I hope you'll consider a gift on Giving Tuesday, or sometime between now and the end of the year. Just go to MinistryWatch.com and hit the donate button at the top of the page. The producers for today's program are Rich Roszel and Ben Warwick .

The same day President Joe Biden announced details of his COVID-19 vaccine mandate for private employers, The Daily Wire filed a lawsuit to stop it. The Daily Wire, a media outlet founded by conservative commentator and author Ben Shapiro, filed the suit because the mandate on employers of 100 or more workers is unconstitutional, the organization said in a public statement Nov. 4. Alliance Defending Freedom, a Christian legal aid organization, is representing The Daily Wire in its fight to halt Biden's vaccine mandate. Although it is risky for any lawyer to predict a case will go to the Supreme Court, Ryan Bangert, a senior attorney for Alliance Defending Freedom, says this case is different. “I think this one has a very good chance of going to the Supreme Court because of the stakes,” Bangert says. Bangert joins “The Daily Signal Podcast” to discuss the constitutionality of the vaccine mandate and what could be next for The Daily Wire's lawsuit. We also cover these stories: Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas testifies before the Senate Judiciary Committee on the ongoing crisis in which large numbers of illegal immigrants cross the southern border.Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis takes aim at the Biden administration and Washington's ruling class.Californians are paying more at the gas pump than ever before.Enjoy the show!

Kathy Lesnoff was working in an abortion clinic at the lowest point in her life. As she was preparing to take her own life, her mother-in-law shared the Gospel with her. Kathy shares the story of how coming to know Jesus changed her heart, her view on abortion, and then her career. Today, Kathy is the president of Mosaic Pregnancy and Health Centers in the state of Illinois and, with the help of Alliance Defending Freedom, is standing up against legislation that would force pregnancy care centers to refer clients to abortion facilities. Kathy's story is a powerful testimony of how God can break into dark places and lead us to the light.

Today we welcome fellow BlazeTV host Steve Deace back to the show. We're talking COVID, and Deace explains that what governments are doing with COVID policy is still completely removed from data and reason. The people who have committed to the "follow the science" dogma are doing anything but, and have essentially started a religion around the vaccine and wearing masks. This obsession will end up hurting people, as any non-vaccine treatment or preventive measure for COVID is regarded as heresy. We debunk some of the Left's talking points about the vaccine, as well as some predictions for what the future holds for the states imposing draconian COVID restrictions. --- Today's Sponsors: Good Ranchers exists to support local American farms that help you make great American meals for your family.

Religious-liberty litigants have won 18 of their past 19 cases in the U.S. Supreme Court, 14 of them unanimously or by supermajority vote. But a number of those decisions have been on narrow legal grounds and have not resolved the continuing tension between secular culture and those trying to live their faith in the public square. In this episode, John Bursch, vice president of appellate advocacy at Alliance Defending Freedom, discusses where we've been and where we might be going when it comes to America's “first freedom”: religious liberty.This presentation was delivered on Oct. 28, 2021 as part of the Acton Lecture Series.Subscribe to Acton Line, Acton Unwind, & Acton Vault Alliance Defending FreedomBio | John Bursch See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

We're covering several stories from the news today, starting off with the revelation that Dr. Fauci facilitated painful experiments on dogs, funded by taxpayer money. While that is awful and deserving of contempt, it's strange how much people care about this compared to how much people care about experimentation with aborted babies. We also discuss the mainstream media's complete misunderstanding of the "let's go Brandon" phenomenon. Then, Jason Whitlock, BlazeTV host of "Fearless with Jason Whitlock," joins the show to discuss the strange turn of events that has BLM in New York protesting against vaccine mandates, as well as one journalist's accusation that Condoleezza Rice is a "foot soldier for white supremacy" because of her views on critical race theory. We end things on a positive note, with a story from Louisiana about local dads helping out at a school that had previously seen a record amount of fighting and violence. --- Timecodes: (0:00) Intro (1:13) The National Institute of Allergy & Infectious Disease — led by Dr. Fauci — experimented on dogs & it was taxpayer-funded!?!

Today we're focusing on the topic of womanhood and motherhood and how the progressive Left dilutes what those things mean. Rachel Levine, the assistant secretary of HHS, who is a man living as a woman, was recently awarded the rank of four-star admiral because ... reasons. The media are all aflutter over this, fawning over what they call either the first openly trans four-star admiral or the first woman four-star admiral. Even though those things contradict each other. We discuss all the reasons this is ridiculous and also the biblical perspective that Christians use to approach issues regarding gender. Also, famous feminist Margaret Atwood has gotten on the wrong side of the pro-trans mob after sharing an article that asked, "Why can't we say 'woman' anymore?" Pro-trans activists are still protesting Netflix, which led to a pretty funny and crazy encounter between a leftist protester and a pro-Dave protester. Lastly, Condoleezza Rice went on "The View" and gave a very measured, reasonable rebuttal to critical race theory that encapsulates what most of the country probably believes. --- Timecodes: (0:00) Intro (3:15) Rachel Levine is being called the "first female" four-star admiral in the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps (10:40) What does it mean to be a woman?

A Biden executive order on gender identity is putting Christian colleges in a predicament.

Do you remember playing “freeze tag” as a child? After cries of “not it,” someone began chasing everyone else. If he or she touched you, you had to stand frozen in place. Such chasing about was a lot of fun! But there was another type of chasing that was not fun at all. Did your playground have a bully? Bullies chase others too. But it is not about fun. It is about power. The bully picks a victim. He then chases the victim, or demands lunch money, or does something else unkind. A bully chasing a victim actually helps us understand the last Beatitude. That's right, Jesus said in Matthew 5:10, “Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”(NIV) The word persecuted comes from the word meaning “to chase or pursue.” Picture a bully going after a victim. Perhaps you've heard of Jack Phillips. He bakes specialty cakes. In 2012 a customer asked him to bake a cake to honor something against his religious beliefs. He refused. He received threatening phone calls. Then a governmental agency took him to court. The case went all the way to the Supreme Court, which ruled in Jack's favor. Less than a month later, the same agency sued Jack again.* Does it remind you of a bully going after a victim? We see from this that the last Beatitude is relevant to life today! Blessed are those persecuted because of righteousness. *"Jack Is Back in Court, Again. Enough Is Enough." Alliance Defending Freedom, https://adflegal.org/enough-is-enough.

Charlie sits down with Monica Gill, a Loudoun County, Virginia teacher and plaintiff in a massive constitutional case challenging that county's coerced gendered language policy.

A 20+ year veteran of the public schools, Monica is also joined by Tyson Langhofer, senior counsel and director of the center for academic freedom at ADF, to explain the urgency of this case and how all of us can help ensure that Monica has the resources necessary to keep fighting to stop the indoctrination of America's students.

We start today by talking about the California recall election, in which current Governor Gavin Newsom was not recalled. It's a shame, but realistically, we all knew it was a long shot. What's really sad is that the majority of Californians signaled their satisfaction with the leadership that's running their state into the ground. Then, we discuss a recent Instagram post by self-help influencer Brené Brown. She basically came out of the closet as a far leftist, and her post was an unhinged and baseless rant about the state of politics in Texas. --- Today's Sponsors: Good Ranchers has traveled the US, meeting with actual farmers that raise the livestock to ensure the product they're sending you is the very best American craft beef and better-than-organic chicken.
