When the U.S. Supreme Court legalized homosexual marriage in 2015, some of us predicted that the real issue was not same-sex “marriage,” but rather a full out war on silencing Christians and forcing people to accept and celebrate an anti-biblical agenda. Well, a lot of people dismissed our prediction as “fear mongering.” But fast forward just two years later and we are seeing a persistent attack on the speech and freedoms of Christians, and a legal and propaganda campaign to marginalize Christian thought, beliefs, and conscience.
An unholy alliance of government, public education, and media is systematically moving the country away from biblical principles and thought to one of Marxist/Humanism where we are told not just what to do; but what to think. And like lemmings going over a cliff, many Americans and luke-warm Christians just follow the pied piper of political correctness, dancing to his jig while we head straight ahead to the destruction of our nation.
Today we cover some high-interest news stories on just how critical things are getting. In the first segment, we check in with Doug Wakefield of Best Minds, Inc. to see how economically we are walking into bondage by ignoring the signs of an imminent world-wide financial meltdown.

For wisdom and power belong to Him.

He removes kings and establishes kings;
He gives wisdom to wise men
And knowledge to men of understanding.

He knows what is in the darkness,
And the light dwells with Him. Daniel 2:20-22
BREAKING NEWS: U.S. Supreme Court to decide Colorado gay wedding cake case (Mike and David discussed in segment 2 today)
The Supreme Court has agreed to decide whether a Colorado baker discriminated against a gay couple as he declined to bake a cake for their wedding.
The Supreme Court said Monday that it would hear the case — Masterpiece Cakeshop, Ltd. v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission — next term.
The case asks the high court to balance the religious rights of the baker against the couple’s right to equal treatment under the law. Similar disputes have popped up across the United States.
