Our religious liberty is under attack - How Drag Queens & public schools put Christianity in cross hairs

January 20, 2020

Guest host Adam McManus chats with Brad Dacus, President of the Pacific Justice Institute, a non-profit Christian legal defense organization, about three recent religious liberty cases.

Pastor Afshin Yaghtin, who objected to a Drag Queen Story Hour which took place in a Spokane, Washington public library, was arrested for merely walking into the venue with his Bible. When the police officer saw his Bible and asked the pastor whether he agreed or disagreed with the drag queens, Pastor Yaghtin explained that he disagreed with them. At that point, he was put in the back of a police car for three HOURS, brought to the jail and booked on creating a disturbance.

Secondly, Dacus will discuss the case of a teenage girl who selected the Christmas hymn “Joy to the World” to play on the piano at a charter school-sponsored Christmas recital at a nursing home. The school prohibited her from doing so, claiming that it would imply their endorsement of a Christian message.

And thirdly, Dacus will cite the case of a public school telling a piano teacher, whose piano manual included “Amazing Grace” and “When the Saints Come Marching In”, that she would have to either cover up those two hymns or rip the pages out altogether.

Finally, Brad Dacus expresses his support for President Trump’s January 16th announcement through the Department of Education in which he affirmed the right of students to pray. President Trump said, “Our Founders understood that no right is more fundamental to a peaceful, prosperous, and virtuous society than the right to follow one’s religious convictions.” And he expressed his delight that President Trump has appointed 187 consitutionalists in the judicial system -- including Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh.

This program includes:

1. The World View in Five Minutes with Adam McManus (Trump: Students, teachers have right to pray at school, VA gun rights feud, Mexico blocks 2,000 Guatemalan migrants)
