John Loeffler: November 18, 2013
Four guests and a boralogue on the show today. Guess you could say its busy. Slippery slopes are technically fallacies in logic. However, Johns boralogue uses a history of property forfeiture abuse to demonstrate how political slippery slopes lead from good intentions to horrible results. Last week Christian historian Diarmaid MacCollough was a guest expressing his views that Christians in the West dont care about persecution of ancient Christian groups in the Middle East. This prompted negative responses from listeners. So this weekend well offer an opposite view from Dexter van Zile at the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting (www.camera.org). Then some members of government in both in UK and the US would like to muzzle journalists by attempting to form a legal definition of what a journalist is or using terrorism laws to scare them into silence. Cliff Kincaid from Accuracy in Media (www.aim.com) returns to the program for a vibrant discussion. We did a piece recently on standards in the Common Core Curriculum educational program President Obama is pushing. But there is more to it, notably the attitudes, values and beliefs being taught in public schools.
