❖ Patti Garibay – Topic: The Girl Scouts and Political Correctness
Have the Girl Scouts gotten too liberal these days? Should we support them any longer by purchasing their cookies? Patti Garibay was active with the Girl Scouts for 13 years, and she was disheartened in 1995—when it was clear that girls could commit to God or to whatever deity or no deity as they wish in the Girl Scouts. Garibay asserts, “The Girl Scouts have lost their moral compass. The Girl Scout’s organization continues to engage in left-wing political activism, exposing young girls to liberal politicians and promoting their ideology.” Indeed, recently, the organization rewarded a young Girl Scout for her efforts to promote abortion Garibay has since founded American Heritage Girls, which is now found throughout the country and beyond and boasts 50,000 members. Patti Garibay joins Jerry Newcombe to discuss political correctness and the Girl Scouts, plus her positive alternative, American Heritage Girls. www.americanheritagegirls.org
❖ Gregory Wrightstone – TOPIC: Man-made climate change alarmism
Gregory Wrightstone is a scientist in the field of geology with more than “35 years of experience researching and studying various aspects of the earth’s processes.” He is troubled by the claims of what have been called the man-made climate change alarmists. Wrightstone wrote a book filled with facts and pictures and graphs, called Inconvenient Facts: The science that Al Gore doesn’t want you to know. He writes, for example, “The planet is improving, not in spite of increasing CO2 and rising temperature, but because of it.” Part of the goal of the book is to arm the layman with facts of science so they can counter “the threatened Thermageddon.” www.inconvenientfacts.xyz [an encore presentation]
❖ Tom DeRosa – Topic: Creation/evolution
Do chimps and humans share almost 99% of their DNA? Some early reports seemed to indicate as such. But further research found that the DNA differences between humans and chimps is more than just 1-2%. Besides, argues Tom DeRosa, founder/director of Creation Studies Institute of Ft. Lauderdale, even 1-2% differences equals significant differences. Either way, does DNA argue for evolution or for creation? Tom DeRosa joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss DNA and creation. www.creationstudies.org
❖ Dr. Peter Lillback – Topic: America’s Christian roots
When the first Continental Congress met in September 1774, the very first question before they opened the official proceedings: Should they or should they not open in prayer? They most certainly opened in prayer in a big way, and the guest minister read from the Lectionary readings for that day—a perfect selection (in the providence of God): Psalm 35, a psalm of persecution. The British were beginning to bomb homes in Boston. Dr. Peter Lillback is Jerry Newcombe’s guest in this discussion. Dr. Peter Lillback is the president of Providence Forum, a group dedicated to rediscovering our nation’s rich Christian heritage. Together with Jerry Newcombe, Dr. Lillback wrote a book that became a bestseller on the faith of our nation’s found father, George Washington’s Sacred Fire. The two authors put together 26 podcasts on the faith of George Washington from virtually every angle. Now they continue with a new series of podcasts (the “Lillback/Newcombe Conversations”) on the faith of our founding fathers. Here is a discussion on how the first Congress opened in prayer (and Congress has been praying ever since). www.providenceforum.org
