❖ Micaiah Bilger: Planned Parenthood and Money
Planned Parenthood is being accused of being greedy for money by some of its employees. Micaiah Bilger writes articles for Lifenews.com. Recently, she penned this expose “Former Employees Expose Planned Parenthood: ‘Everything They Did Was Money-Motivated.’” She writes, “Several employees of a Nashville Planned Parenthood voiced concerns this week that the abortion facility put money ahead of patients’ well-being….Each said something similar, ‘New management prioritized money over patients.’” Micaiah Bilger joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss this Planned Parenthood and Money. www.lifenews.com
❖ Mat Staver: The Southern Poverty Law Center
The Southern Poverty Law Center continues to inflict damage on America’s soul, argues one of America’s great attorneys, Mat Staver, who founded and directs Liberty Counsel, which is dedicated to preserving our religious liberties. In 1971, when the SPLC was founded, at the tail end of the civil rights movement, its goal was to hamstring the KKK and hate groups like it. The SPLC succeeded, but later the self-appointed “hate” watch dog group turned its sites on legitimate Christian ministries—if they dared to be faithful to the Bible, e.g., to claim that homosexuality was a sin or that same-sex marriage is not real in the eyes of God or that abortion is wrong. The SPLC is listened to by groups like Amazon (for their charity program) and social media giants, like Twitter or Google or Facebook. Thus, Christian ministries are brandished as alleged “haters.” Mat Staver joins Jerry Newcombe to discuss the SPLC. www.lc.org
❖ Geoff Rogers: Sex trafficking
The focus of this segment is on human trafficking, especially of the sexual kind. Geoff Rogers is the co-founder and CEO of the U. S. Institute Against Human Trafficking. Recently, he wrote an op-ed in the Washington Examiner on how to fight human trafficking. What we need, he said, are “TraffickingFreeZones.” He notes, “Drug-free zones came about in the 1970s, in response to a growing concern about drugs being sold to children in schools. Since then, drug-free zones have been a critical component in America’s war on drugs….We need a similar strategy to deter those who are considering buying sex. That’s why the U.S. Institute Against Human Trafficking has created the TraffickingFree Zone program, a national initiative implemented on county levels to reduce the number of buyers for sex-trafficked victims.” Geoff Rogers joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss “Trafficking Free Zones.” www.usiaht.org
❖ Dallas Jenkins: New multi-seasonal TV series on Jesus in the works
A successful Christian film-maker is turning his attention on creating the first ever multi-episode, multi-seasonal TV-series on the life of Jesus Christ. Dallas Jenkins has made some Christian movies, such as What If? and The Resurrection of Gavin Stone. Dallas is the son of “the book machine” Jerry Jenkins, the successful Christian author. Although there have been many films or television specials on the life of Christ, there has never been an on-going, multi-seasonal series on same. Dallas Jenkins, in conjunction with TV-producer Matthew Faraci, is working to produce The Chosen on the life of Christ. To get an idea of the quality of the series, here is a segment on Luke 2, the original Christmas, through the eyes of the shepherds. Dallas Jenkins joins Jerry Newcombe to discuss the ambitious plan of The Chosen. www.thechosen.tv
