Brad Dacus

President, Pacific Justice Institute

Brad Dacus has coordinated religious freedom and parental rights cases throughout the western United States. And in 1997, founded the Pacific Justice Institute, where he continues to defend religious liberties and parental rights without charge. The Pacific Justice Institute has a network with hundreds of volunteer affiliate attorneys and handles more cases on the West Coast than any other organization of its kind.

We hear stories of persecuted Christians in China, North Korea, Africa, Iran and more praying for God’s protection as they are imprisoned, tortured or even murdered for the sake of the gospel.  Some Christians face a health crisis, poverty, and wonder how they will put food on the table for their families because they are out of work.  They go from day to day praying and trusting in God for His provision and protection, remaining faithful in the face of serious challenges.  And then there are people like Kenneth Copeland…

According to his so-called ministry, Copeland recently heard from God that he needed another luxury jet to accommodate his overseas excursions; and that God miraculously sent Tyler Perry his way to sell him a luxurious Gulfstream V private jet.  All of this on the financial backs of naive followers who believe in Copeland’s “prosperity gospel teaching.”  But wait, apparently the luxurious jet Copeland received is not quite good enough because he is asking his followers for another $2.5 million for “necessary upgrades” to his new toy – and $17 million for a hanger to house the jet. We tackle details in our second segment.

In our first segment today we are joined by Brad Dacus, president of The Pacific Justice Institute to talk about the fight for religious freedoms of Christians in our nation.
