Hey friends,

This Wednesday night, 6/11 our prospective guest is Philip R. Davies, a Hebrew Bible scholar and member of the prestigious Copenhagen school, who will discuss some of the many reasons why the Hebrew Bible is fiction as opposed to history, and explain a bit of the minimalist position. 

All quests and inquiries for these two guests may be posted in this thread, and the best will be asked on air.  Remember the show starts promptly at 8pm EST in stickam, which can be accessed from this link

 

[UPDATE] Because of time zone restrictions, this show will have to be taped early and played for the room later that evening, normal time.  Philip is 5 hours ahead of me, and that means that calling him at 8pm EST is 1am for him.  Because of my respect for him, I have agreed to record the show ahead of time.  I’m sorry for the inconvenience, but still promise a great show!  Looking forward to seeing you all there.

NOTE: This is why it is important to get your questions in NOW.  Ask all your questions in this thread!  Only two more days until show time!

For Certain Christians, Lying for Jesus is Justified in the Abortion Wars

Leviticus 19:11 makes clear: "Ye shall not steal, neither deal falsely, neither lie one to another."There's quite a bit of the Bible that conservative Christian activists tend to leave out, but Biblical prohibitions against lying are routinely given short shrift by those intent on seeing God's will done on Earth. We don't have to look far for examples of it -- from Christians arguing that LGBT people are predators to politicians pretending that being gay is a choice, these lies are common.The Washington Post has a good look at another popular outlet for faith-based lying: the abortion debate, and the notoriously deceptive idea of "crisis pregnancy centers." Reporter Petula Dvorak examines the work of one Virginia activist, Pat Lohman, in particular.shutterstock_296153609
