John Loeffler: June 10, 2019

A lot of important topics this week on Steel so we are foregoing the boralogue and jumping right in with our first guest.  Dr. Thomas Farr (www.religiousfreedominstitute.org), President of the Religious Freedom Institute, describes how the Equality Act is turning the First Amendment on its head by punishing people who hold traditional views on marriage and other issues.  We should speak out and defend our rights and freedoms before it's too late.

 

If TV crime dramas are to be believed, facial recognition software is quick, easy, and beneficial.  But what's the real story?  Robert Bailey (www.reason.com), Science Correspondent at Reason.com, looks at the realities of facial rec and the potential for overreach and rights violations should the government get hold of it.

 

When it comes to the SATs, some scores are less equal than others.  Rob Shimshock (www.campusreform.org), Correspondent Editor at Campus Reform, joins us to discuss the proposed adversity score for the SATs and how certain people groups are being disenfranchised because of it.

 

Christians are attacked in Palestinian Authority lands but no one seems to hear about it.  Edy Cohen (www.besacenter.org), Researcher at the BESA Center in Israel, describes how Christians are persecuted in the West Bank and asks why Christians outside of the area are largely silent about it.

 

John finishes up this week looking at why politicians always seem to promote issues that never work, like gun control legislation.  The problem is that they are focusing on the wrong things.  If you don't do what actually needs to be done to solve the problem, passing more legislation is not going to help.

 

John’s quote of the week:    

"The reason we have a right to privacy in this country is that government is not supposed to be trawling through the population trying to find crimes.  You can't live under that level of paranoia.  It suppresses speech, it suppresses innovation, it suppresses religion – it suppresses freedom."
