Did you know that the mainstream media doesn't report on violations of Freedom of Speech where it involves a Christian? Do you that the UN considers your rights as a parent negotiable? What are the latest news items Christians need to be aware of? Come join us as we discuss them and how we should react? Today on Grace Talk Soup, I'm going to address a few of the latest issues in the news that are important to the Christian community. * Why is it important that we know about these issues? * Why doesn't the main stream media report them? * Why aren't more Christians speaking up? * How do Christians react to these issues and why is that important? * What problem with not speaking up? Latest News Stories: * Miss California question reveals her Christian beliefs on marriage and sets off a rant from one of the judges. * President Obama asks that all Christian symbols be draped while he is making his speech at Notre Dame * Homeland Security memo that was only to go to law enforcement states that returning military, conservatives and those who are pro life are "primary" threats to national security and potential domestic terrorits * Hate Crimes bill that could silence pastors How do you feel about these issues? Why are they important for our future? What is the effect on a Christian's free speech and religious freedom? How should Christians react and what is the problem if we react the wrong way?
