We decided to react to a debate Dr. Norman Horn participated in with Dr. Allan Carlson back in 2013 on the topic of whether the state should define marriage as a union between a man and a woman. In the Bible, God defines marriage within Genesis; however, as our society shifts and changes the view of marital unions have changed. Many Christians would argue that based upon the way God intended the nuclear family to be there is a requirement for the state to uphold the integrity and morality of such an institution. But is coercion warranted to do so?
For this week, we were joined by Kyle Mann, editor-in-chief and author at The Babylon Bee, to discuss The Babylon Bee Guide to Wokeness. We also talked about how The Babylon Bee utilizes comedy and satire as an effective way to expose hypocrisy found in "cancel" and/or "woke" culture. Though the content may make you chuckle, there are some sad truths found in the humor. Extreme movements and ideologies such as CRT and woke culture are slowly creeping into American culture, choking out our individual rights.
We welcomed a previous guest on our podcast, Joshua Longbrook from Our Foundations, to catch up since we last spoke before the pandemic, how he began a group in his community in reaction to COVID-19, living out the principles of agorism and libertarianism, as well as what it means to be self-reliant within a community.
