Today we’re covering several news stories, including the question many Christian bloggers are asking: Did Francis Chan give his stamp of approval to a right-wing dominionist organization known for promoting signs and wonders, simply by speaking at a conference the group put on? We’re going to talk about the growing muddy lines around what some view as guilt by association, and others say is validation by affiliation. What’s the difference? It’s getting harder to tell.
But first, did you know that the number of Christian martyrs doubled in the year 2013? Joining us in our first segment today is a frequent guest of our program, William J. Murray, of the Religious Freedom Coalition, and he is a strong advocate for persecuted Christians in America and around the world.
We’ll get an update on William’s project: Christmas For Refugees.William founded ShariaFreeUSA.org. His mother was the founder of American Atheists was Madeline Murray O’Hair. You may remember that she also won the landmark lawsuit on behalf of her son William that effectively banned prayer in public schools. Thankfully William did not follow her path, and works to fight religious persecution around the world. (Check out his Capitol Hill Updates blog.)
