❖ Eric Scheidler: Gosnell Movie
As of this writing, there is an incredible movie in the theatres right now, Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer, starring Dean Cain, Sarah Jane Morris, and Nick Searcy (who directed the film). This pro-life movie is already changing hearts and minds on the abortion issue. A high percentage of the film takes place in the courtroom—as opposed to showing gory, grisly images that would turn off most viewers. Gary Bauer (10/15/18) notes that the movie was initially in the Top 10 movies (on Friday and Saturday): “That is an amazing accomplishment given that it had a limited opening in fewer than 680 theaters, compared to 4,250 for the weekend’s number one film. Moreover, there were virtually no reviews of the movie….Hollywood has blacklisted the film because it exposes the ugly reality of abortion on demand. Facebook and NPR also banned advertising for ‘Gosnell.’” Eric Scheidler is a walking encyclopedia on the abortion issue. He is the director of the Pro-Life Action League. Eric Scheidler joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss the significance of the Gosnell movie and story. www.prolifeaction.org & www.gosnellmovie.com
❖ Lea Patterson: Religious Freedom
In a retirement community in Fredericksburg, Virginia, there is a religious freedom case brewing. A resident in his mid-80s and his wife are facing the possibility of eviction from their senior living community. Why? Because they want to have a Bible study there, and the powers that be don’t want to allow that. Attorney Lea Patterson, associate counsel for First Liberty—a type of Christian counterpart to the ACLU—says, “It is both shameful and illegal to threaten elderly residents with eviction simply for holding a Bible study…Treating residents unequally simply out of hostility to religion violates federal law and taints Virginia’s long history of religious freedom.” Lea Patterson joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss this case and why it matters. www.firstliberty.org
❖ Kyle Mills: Putin and Russia
Recently, the #1 book in America was Red War. The author is Kyle Mills, and it is in the tradition of the late Vince Flynn, featuring a Flynn-created character, CIA-operative Mitch Rapp. The whole series are New York Times bestsellers. The new book deals with a Putin-like character who is more concerned with his own power, even in the face of a life-threatening illness, than he is his own people or the rest of the world. The premise of Red War is described this way: “How does the Russian president try to cling to power after learning he has an inoperable brain tumor? Could this result in World War III? The fate of the world rests on counterterrorism operative, Mitch Rapp, in this political thriller.” Caution: If books were to be rated, this would be rated R for language and violence. Kyle Mills joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss Red War and Putin’s Russia. www.kylemills.com
❖ Karen Schoen: Hurricane Michael
Hurricane Michael was (and continues to be) devastating to many living in Florida’s panhandle area, including Panama City Beach and its environs. There have been a rising death toll, massive power outages, spotty phone service, blocked roads, the destruction of many people’s houses and livelihoods, etc. Karen Schoen, a host on American Freedom Watch Radio, lives north of Panama City Beach. She survived Hurricane Wilma (2005) living in Broward County at the time. She said Michael was about four times worse than Wilma. Thankfully, as always, many Christian ministries and people of good will have come to the area to help as many victims of Michael as they can. Hurricane Michael is bad enough for those with insurance. It’s particularly difficult for those without insurance. Schoen has begun a Go Fund Me page: Hurricanemichael/helpuninsured. Team: panhandlesurvivors. Karen Schoen joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss Hurricane Michael. Note: Schoen had to drive to nearby Alabama to be able to conduct the interview.
