Our modern culture is embroiled in all kinds of controversies when it comes to gender-specific definitions and roles for males and females.  Unfortunately, these controversies have stormed into the modern church as well.  For example, many people can’t understand why women can’t be pastors and preachers like men? Are you one of those people? If so, then you probably also believe that we have the right to culturally reinterpret the Bible to fit our ever-evolving and rapidly changing modern culture.  But do we as humans actually have the right to change and reinterpret God’s Holy and Authoritative Word of Truth? Or should we humbly and obediently submit to God’s Divine Design for males and females in the family and the church?

Under our Constitution, does the president or the legislative branch have the power to declare a tariff, which is a type of tax? President Trump has received some flak lately for calling for tariffs against China because of what he says is their unfair-to-us trade practices. Matt Spalding is a Constitutional scholar and Hillsdale College leader in its Washington, D. C. branch. Formerly with the Heritage Foundation, Matt Spalding edited the massive “The Heritage Guide to the Constitution.” Matt Spalding joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss tariffs and the Constitution. www.hillsdale.edu

Terry Schilling is the executive director at American Principles Project. He was the moderator of a controversial panel discussion at the 2018 CPAC on the subject of “social media censorship.” Schilling writes, “America prides itself on the free exchange of ideas — indeed, the freedom of speech is fundamental to who we are. But social justice activists on the Left reject this. They want to silence opposing viewpoints, and now, with full control of Silicon Valley, they’ve found a way to realize their fascist dystopia. Blatant political censorship of one side is as anti-American as it gets.” Terry Schilling joins Jerry Newcombe to discuss an example of YouTube and Twitter censorship involving an incident involving conservative comedian Steven Crowder. www.americanprinciplesproject.org

Michelle Rioux wrote an article for dailysignal.com (of the Heritage Foundation) about censorship on Facebook. She describes herself as “a lawyer (newly minted and not currently practicing) and lifelong Catholic.” Her article is called “Facebook Suspended Me for Sharing My Religious Beliefs About Homosexuality.” She notes, “The subject of my posts had been the third section of the Catholic Church’s Pastoral Care of Homosexual Persons, which reaffirms the teaching that homosexuality is an ‘objective disorder’….Maybe there’s a method to Facebook’s madness that excuses it from my complaint about arbitrary decision-making. But there is no doubt whatsoever that this action constitutes censorship.” The gist of the story is that by quoting official teaching of her church that wasn’t pro-homosexual, Facebook censored her post. Michelle Rioux joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss this incident. www.dailysignal.com
