Rising tide of bankruptcies and what’s ahead for restaurants, farms, and people like me | Cal Thomas on America’s Expiration Date

Play

Carmen talks with Bill English from BibleandBusiness.com about the rising tide of bankruptcies and what’s ahead in several sectors of the economy.

Some of the stats they discuss are sobering:

The US Chamber of Commerce indicates 43% of all small businesses could close permanently in the next six months. According to Yelp, 15,000 restaurants have already closed permanently and the NRA (National Restaurant Association) reports food and beverage sales at restaurants are off $94 billion from March to May. Wall Street Journal reports “Many restaurant owners tapped the federal Paycheck Protection Program and negotiated breaks with their landlords. Now, some who got PPP loans say that money has been spent. And many landlords who offered rent deferments of a few months now want to be paid in August, said Alden Parker, co-chair of Fisher & Phillips’s National Hospitality Practice Group. They discuss the impact on all this on America’s farmers before turning their attention to the 25 million Americans who are set to lose the $600/week bump in federal unemployment benefits at the end of July. 

Then Carmen talks with syndicated columnist and author Cal Thomas about America’s Expiration Date.

#005: "Blinded by Might: Can the Religious Right Save America?" by Cal Thomas and Ed Dobson

Michelle analyzes Blinded by Might: Can the Religious Right Save America? by Cal Thomas and Ed Dobson. She covers religion, politics, the Kingdom of God, and more.

From the back cover: "Authors Cal Thomas and Ed Dobson once believed the best way to fight the 'liberal agenda' was to beat them at their own game. Mobilize voters. Organize boycotts. Get invited to the White House. And raise a ton of money to keep the war chest full. Not anymore. Blinded by Might takes you inside the early and heady days of the Moral Majority, tracing its well-intentioned but fatally flawed battle plan aimed at reversing America's slide into a moral wasteland. It shows how groups like the Christian Coalition, which stepped in when the Moral Majority ran out of steam, have not changed, cannot change, and will not change the trajectory of America's culture. Written by two conservative Christians who worked closely with Jerry Falwell in the 1980s, Blinded by Might explains what you can do for your country that twenty years of heavily financed political activism has failed to do. When Ronald Reagan won the 1980 presidential election by a landslide, conservative Christians discovered what could happen when they flexed their electoral muscles. Suddenly, faith and politics seemed a promising match and before the eyes of the astonished media, a new movement called the Moral Majority and its leader, Jerry Falwell, rocketed from obscurity to national prominence. The Religious right was born. Today with luminaries including Pat Robertson, James Dobson, James Kennedy, and Ralph Reed, the right remains a powerful political force. Yet, despite nearly twenty years of vigorous and sophisticated activism, it has failed in its mission to end abortion, eliminate pornography, restore the shattered American family, and usher in a better world built on 'traditional values.' Why? Few know the answers better than Cal Thomas and Ed Dobson. Former insiders with the Moral Majority, they share never-reported information on a movement they helped shape in order to show why it could not and did not succeed. And they tell what it will really take to stem the ungodliness that is sweeping our nation. 'Whenever the church cozies up to political power, it loses sight of its all-important mission to change the world from the inside out,' writes Thomas. In blurring the lines between politics and Christianity, the Religious Right has traded the only power that can truly change America—the Gospel's power to transform hearts—for the methods of a kingdom that is of this world. What, then, is the alternative? Given such critical issues as abortion, gay activism, are Christians to simply disengage from the political process? Hardly. Uninvolvement is not the answer, say the authors, but a shift in perspective. As Christians, they insist we must realize that God's agenda does not rise or fall with political causes; and that we must rediscover our most potent influence is not the ballot booth, but lives that extend God's grace in the home, in the workplace, and in all spheres of our culture. Blinded by Might calls us to realign ourselves with a kingdom infinitely more powerful and certain than politics, that advances initially through changed hearts that inevitably must change and impart government."

The media doesn't have a very good reputation with the American people -- and part of that distrust comes from the polling fact that members of the press are simply out of touch, out of faith. Nobody knows this better than Cal Thomas, syndicated columnist and author, who speaks about his experiences as a Christian in the secular media world -- and about his great new book on the fate of America.
