I do my best to respond to some common questions about abortion.
Will making abortion illegal actually reduce abortions?
Even if abortion is wrong, don’t you have to be a Christian to understand why it’s wrong, and is it right to impose a Christian view of morality on others?
Do pro-life people only care about a fetus before it’s born?
Is politics the best solution?
Isn’t it more of a state than federal issue?
Bonus! What about all the fertilized eggs that never implant?
The Supreme Court agreeing to hear
Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization is a bigger deal than you think.
Can God make a rock that God can’t move? I used to think it was a stupid question. But after thinking about it more, I realized the answer tells us something very important about God.
I’m cautiously optimistic about Carson Wentz, but I’ve never loved him.
Chris Ballard has taken way too much heat this offseason, and has proven once again that his patience has led to the Colts being in the best possible position.
What’s not to like about Tim Tebow to the Jags?
Aaron Rodgers needs to stick with what he’s got in Green Bay.
Mike Tomlin is a great coach. But if a whole unit gets in his doghouse, he might make a bad decision, and that bad decision might cost him the game.
In this episode, I respond to a viral video made by Skye Jethani and Phil Vischer, arguing that Pro-life Christians should not see Roe v. Wade as relevant in their voting.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RvWD7ykNjCc Summary: 1. No, Christians are not turning a blind eye to “un-Christian policies” because of Roe v. Wade. 2. Of course Republican presidents don’t reduce the number of abortions; Roe v. Wade prevents that from happening. 3. We all know that overturning Roe v. Wade wouldn’t end abortion in America, but it’s nonetheless a very important step. 4. It’s wrong to think Roe v. Wade will never be overturned, because:
a) Republicans are about 50/50 on appointing originalist, pro-life judges.
b) The Federalist Society is a better indicator of originalist jurisprudence than the party of the appointing president.
c) John Roberts doesn’t believe precedent should never be overturned
d) Roe v. Wade was almost overturned in 1992.
5. ON THIS DAY IN 1987, Joe Biden ensured Roe v. Wade would last for three more decades.
Is Trump bad for the GOP? Are evangelical Christians moving to the left? When we vote, are we making a binary choice or expressing our ideals?
We discuss how Eleanor became a Christian 42 years ago, and some of the things she’s learned since then. This is the first in a series about conversion stories.
My friend Matt and I take a few Facebook discussions to real life
—well, podcast life, which is a good bit closer to real life than Facebook! We discuss some of our agreements and disagreements about “Defund the Police,” BLM, Aunt Jemima, the “Progressive Elites,” cancel culture, and more.
There’s enormous pressure on corporations, universities, and public figures to release vague statements aligning themselves with the Black Lives Matter movement or condemning racism, but in such a milieu, these statements become more about proving oneself than about advancing meaningful ideas. As an example, I discuss a recent petition for my Alma Mater, Hillsdale College, to prove itself not-racist by releasing a statement.
