Liberal Dan Radio 07/08/2020: School’s out forever?

On the July 8, 2020 episode of Liberal Dan Radio

President Trump touted Sweden as a reason that we should go back to schools. What is he drinking? 

The Supreme Court had several rulings this week, two with some very odd rulings that I will go into. Should your employer be able to control the contraception coverage on your health insurance plan? I say no and explain why. Also, does age discrimination count if you’re working for a faith based school? Apparenty you can do it all you want. 

The Trump Administration is also telling students on a foreign visa that if their schools are digital next semester that they can’t stay. I will go into why that is horrible. 

Those topics and  more, tonight on Liberal Dan Radio, Talk From The Left, That’s Right!

Drew Brees, Focus on the Family, and Bring Your Bible To School Day.

Focus on the Family, who should really be focusing on their own family and leaving everyone else’s alone, is pushing children to bring their bibles to school and share their favorite verse. Somehow they drafted Drew Brees to help voice this idea.

Brees shares his favorite bible verse, 5 Corinthians 5:7 which states:

” For we live by faith, not by sight.”

I have some other biblical verses that would be fun to bring to school as well.

Numbers 5: 19-24 states:

19 Then the priest shall put the woman under oath and say to her, “If no other man has had sexual relations with you and you have not gone astray and become impure while married to your husband, may this bitter water that brings a curse not harm you. 
20 But if you have gone astray while married to your husband and you have made yourself impure by having sexual relations with a man other than your husband”— 
21 here the priest is to put the woman under this curse—“may the LORD cause you to become a curse among your people when he makes your womb miscarry and your abdomen swell. 
22May this water that brings a curse enter your body so that your abdomen swells or your womb miscarries.” “ ‘Then the woman is to say, “Amen. So be it.” 
23 “ ‘The priest is to write these curses on a scroll and then wash them off into the bitter water. 
24 He shall make the woman drink the bitter water that brings a curse, and this water that brings a curse and causes bitter suffering will enter her.

Or how about Psalms 137:9

Happy is the one who seizes your infants and dashes them against the rocks.

2 Kings 8:12 states:

12 And Hazael said, “Why does my lord weep?” He answered, “Because I know the evil that you will do to the people of Israel. You will set on fire their fortresses, and you will kill their young men with the sword and dash in pieces their little ones and rip open their pregnant women.”

Exodus 21:22-24

22 “If two men are fighting, and in the process hurt a pregnant woman so that she has a miscarriage, but she lives, then the man who injured her shall be fined whatever amount the woman’s husband shall demand, and as the judges approve. 23 But if any harm comes to the woman and she dies, he shall be executed.
24 “If her eye is injured, injure his; if her tooth is knocked out, knock out his; and so on—hand for hand, foot for foot,

Of course, you may not want to focus on all the areas of the Hebrew bible where the Lord seems to contradict every pro-life argument there is to be had. Maybe you want to try Acts 4:

32 All the believers were one in heart and mind. No one claimed that any of their possessions was their own, but they shared everything they had.33 With great power the apostles continued to testify to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. And God’s grace was so powerfully at work in them all 34 that there were no needy persons among them. For from time to time those who owned land or houses sold them, brought the money from the sales 35 and put it at the apostles’ feet, and it was distributed to anyone who had need.

Sounds like these believers embraced socialism.

Do you have any other great bible verses for “Bring Your Bible To School Day”? I personally don’t believe we should be using school time for evangelism. But hey, if the kids are bringing their favorite religious tracts to school, why not do a little counter-evangelism?

Liberal Dan Radio 1/8/2015: Je Suis Charlie

Liberal Dan Radio returns to Thursdays at 8pm Central this week, January 7th, 2015.

A terrorist attack in France at the headquarters of the satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo has caused shock waves around the world. Muslim extremists attacked the paper for some cartoons it has done. Can one really claim to have faith if one is effected by simple drawings mocking ones religion? Shouldn’t ones faith be able to overcome such feelings if ones faith is strong? This story also revealed another item that Conservatives like to harp on. Conservatives believe that Liberals are soft on Muslim extremism and would allow so called “Sharia Law” to be enacted in the US. I will explain how that is absolutely untrue.

It is not just Muslim extremists who want to attack free speech. Kirby Delauter doesn’t seem to quite get that simple fact. I will talk about his claims and the hilarious response to them as well.

Finally, I will be discussing the Steve Scalise scandal that continues to run through the media and explain why his choice to knowingly accept an invitation to speak given to him by a person known to him to be a racist is the biggest problem here.

Those stories, headlines, tweet of the week and more this week on Liberal Dan Radio, Talk From The Left, That’s Right.

Hobby Lobby and The Food Babe share a “brain”.

I have A LOT of thoughts on the horrible Supreme Court ruling pertaining to the oral contraception mandate. This is just one of many posts on it.

In the past I have discussed my issues with the “Food Babe” and her stances that she takes on food. One of the most egregious items was when she said that Subway sandwiches should eliminate a certain chemical from their bread because that same chemical is found in yoga mats and who wants to eat yoga mats? Seriously, she is that stupid. Well, her argument unfortunately worked and Subway caved.

So how is Hobby Lobby like the “Food Babe”? Well, in their argument they are saying that they are opposed to “their money”* being spent on abortifacients. They then claim that these oral contraceptive measures cause abortions. They provide no proof of this. They offer no scientific evidence that these pills cause abortions, They just believe it to be so, much like the Food Babe believes it to be so that you are eating yoga mats when you ate a Subway Sandwich. Just as the Food Babe didn’t provide evidence that the ingredient in the bread was harmful and instead used beliefs to push her agenda, Hobby Lobby never provided evidence that coverage of these pills harms them under their freedom of religion since they never proved abortions are caused by these pills.

These kinds of nitwit arguments are dumbing down our country and they need to stop.

Liberal Dan Radio 5/14/2014: Injustices

On the May 14, 2014 episode of Liberal Dan Radio:

The story of the show is injustices. First I will talk about the injustice that took place in the recent supreme court ruling that states prayers before governmental meetings are ok. I will explain why this is wrong and why the justices who ruled in favor of this “tradition” get it wrong on “harm”.

I will then be discussing The Darker Side of Justice, with author Gerald Price about the injustices that can take place in our judicial system.

That, headlines, tweet of the week, and more this Wednesday at 8pm central on Liberal Dan Radio: Talk From The Left, That’s Right.

Remember, this is the last week for the Liberal Dan Radio Kickstarter. Contribute before May 20th.
