This is the transcript of the introduction for this episode of the Christopher Scott Talk Show Podcast:
The big news concerning civil rights has been cases involving gays. There's the wedding cake stories. One before the Supreme Court right now and a recent appeal ruling in Oregon upholding a one hundred thirty five thousand dollar judgement against a bakery that refused to make a wedding cake for a lesbian couple. The other big story is the stay from the presidents order banning transgender people from serving in the military. At least for now transgender people will be allowed to serve in the military in 2018.
If you listen to these headlines and stories you'd probably be led to believe there's a fight for civil liberties going on. You'd think the whole issue is about equality and allowing free access to anything and everything to anyone. Sounds noble at least on one level. But there's more going on. A lot more and if you care about Christian values you might want to listen up. These court rulings should be enough to scare the hell out of every American. And, I'm not just talking religious people.
There's a lot to consider with all this. Plenty of hypocrisy on both sides and plenty to argue about. At the end of the day you're going to have to decide which side you're on. I suggest you consider that carefully.
