Vocal Point-Dr. Jay Richards

Topic: Science and God

Science is being taught today in such a way as to automatically exclude God. The Discovery Institute is now releasing a series of provocative films called, “Science Uprising.” The Institute notes: “Unlike anything we’ve done before, Science Uprising directly confronts the false views of science held by the growing number of ‘Nones’ and by science popularizers like Neil deGrasse Tyson and Bill Nye.” One of the guests on the series is Dr. Jay Richards, co-author of the bestselling book, The Privileged Planet. Dr. Jay Richards joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss this series. www.scienceuprising.com

Vocal Point-Chris Long/Bill Federer

Topic: God and D-Day

June 6th was the 75th anniversary of D-Day. A few years ago, the national monument to World War II was created in D. C.—only it left out references to God, even as found in speeches by FDR. Now there is a move afoot to restore God (and the true history) of the statements made by FDR at the time of D-Day. A press release notes, “The D-Day Prayer Project is the effort to add FDR’s D-Day Prayer at the WWII Memorial in Washington, D.C. It passed Congress in June 2014 as the WWII Memorial Prayer Act S 1044, sponsored by Senator Rob Portman (OH).” Chris Long, President of Christian Alliance of America, and Bill Federer, bestselling author and speaker, join Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss this push.  www.ddayprayerproject.org

Vocal Point-Jason Pye

Topic: Runaway Government Spending

The federal government continues to spend money by borrowing from our nation’s future. The worst part about this is that most of this is peace-time/non-emergency spending. No one could run a household the way the government handles the budget. And there are many in Congress who want to spend more and more. Jason Pye of FreedomWorks writes that Congress should not raise the spending caps: “Rather than negotiate with House Democrats over busting the spending caps for the fifth time, McConnell and congressional Republicans should do what they have not done since 2011: Embrace the Budget Control Act.” Jason Pye joins Jerry Newcombe to discuss fiscal responsibility and federal spending. www.freedomworks.org

Vocal Point-Dr. Adam Carrington

Topic: Supreme Court Decisions

Around this time of year (the end of May/early June), we await to see what our rights are or are not, according to the Supreme Court. But should it really be like this? Dr. Adam Carrington is an assistant professor of politics at Hillsdale College. He wrote an article about a recent Supreme Court decision that balanced free speech rights versus the ability of the police to do their job. He noted: “Some of these opinions concerns matters so mired in legalese that only a lawyer could take interest. But others touch upon issues known by and important to all citizens — questions regarding religion, liberty, and our structure of government.” Dr. Carrington joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss this particular case and the trend of the Supreme Court to sometimes assume more power unto itself than what the Constitution grants. www.hillsdale.edu
