Faith And The Culture

Rick:

Welcome to the intersection of faith and the culture.  This is WallBuilders Live! Where we talk about today’s hottest topics on policy, faith, and the culture. We’re always looking at it from the perspectives of a Biblical, Constitutional, historical, perspective. And it’s important to do that because those foundations don’t change their timeless principles.

We’re here with David Barton, he’s America’s premier historian. And Tim Barton, he’s a national speaker and pastor. My name is Rick Green, I’m a former Texas state legislator.

You found us on a Friday which means it’s good news today. We always do Good News Fridays which means David and Tim have been collecting all these great stories from around the country and around the world that you probably have not heard in the major media. But it’s good stories, it’s good news, it’s where people got involved, made a difference, good decisions have been made, there’s a lot of great victories out there. David, Tim, I’m looking forward today.

We’re Not Pollyanna

Rick:

And I’m not suggesting we’re Pollyanna – we don’t only look at the positive. We do the good, the bad, and the ugly. We do the programs on the tough issues. But on Fridays, we like to highlight all those victories. It’s good to know we’re winning in a lot of areas.

David:

We are winning in a lot of areas. And it is something that a lot of folks do not know. That’s why this ends up, for listeners, the feedback we get, this is certainly one of the most popular days of the week for listeners. They love the good news because it’s out there, but you just really have to kind of dig through the media to find it. Because they don’t like talking about good stuff.

Rick:

Yeah. No doubt about it. No doubt about it. Alright, which one of you guys wants to go first today?

David:

I’m going to take off with one. We’re going to go to a high school and a high school way back in 1990 in a case called Westside vs. Mergens. The U.S. Supreme Court unanimously ruled 8 to 0 that if you have a limited open forum, or an open forum, which means that if you allow one group to be able to express their views, you’ve got to allow all groups to be able to express their views. So at that time, Bible clubs were ruled in because the courts, lower courts, were saying, “No, you can’t have a Bible club at a public school.” But the argument was, “Now, wait a minute, if you’ve got a scuba club, and if you got a journalism club, and you’ve got a chess club, and if you’ve got a rodeo club, why can’t you have a Bible club?”

And so in an 8-0 decision, liberals agreeing with conservatives, you cannot censor just one side because you don’t like that viewpoint. If you’re gonna allow kids to have a viewpoint, they get to have the viewpoint. So, this high school is called Carmel High School. And in the high school, you have a pro-life club which is a really good deal. We’ve already talked about stats how that the younger generation is certainly more pro-life than older generations.

Pro-Life Poster

David:

So it’s not surprising they would have a pro-life club at school. And they went to the school administration and they got permission to be able to display a poster. And they worked on it for three days and it was built on the concept that there are 3,000 abortions a day. So, they were able to create 300 little hearts and they said each heart represented 10 beating hearts of unborn children. And the 300 hearts gave them 3,000 for the day, and the poster is, this is what happens in a day, that many lives are lost every day.

So, when this poster got up after three days of work, 25 hours the kids put into this, they get the poster up and they got the approval, it’s got the administration approval stamps on the posters. They get the poster up and a kid walking down the hallway says, “Well, that’s offensive to me.” and goes and tells an administrator, “That’s offensive to me.” The administration made the kids take them down. No, that’s not true, the administration didn’t make the kids take them down, the administration themselves went and took the poster down, and trashed the poster.

Said, “That’s it. You’re not putting it up.” And their argument was that it expresses an ideology and therefore it cannot be approved for display because it expresses an ideology. Now, I’m kind of curious as to what thought or idea does not express an ideology.

Rick:

Right.

David:

I’m just not sure there’s one out there. Even if you say–

Tim:

A blank piece of paper–

David:

That’s your ideology, that’s your belief.

LGBT, Young Democrats, and Others Are all Fine?

Tim:

–does not express an ideology. Maybe my preference for a white paper. So, maybe if I had all the colors of the rainbow paper. But then that would be me picking the colors of the rainbow, so it’s still my id– Yeah, there’s nothing you could put up that didn’t have something of your values, or your belief system, or your approval on it. So, that is idiotic.

David:

And it’s interesting that poster came down, and at the same time, the young Democrats posters were fine, and the LGBT posters were fine, all the other posters are fine, but this one has an ideology, and this one’s not allowed. So, they single it out to take it down. And of course, the kids and parents say, “Wait a minute, you can’t do that.” And so the school says, “Here’s how we’re going to solve this. We’re going to solve this by letting the club sign an agreement.

And if they sign an agreement we will let the club continue to exist. But if they don’t sign this agreement, we’re going to wipe out the Pro-Life Club totally. It won’t even exist at all.” So, are you ready for the agreement?

Rick:

I’m guessing this was not a good agreement.

David:

Well, this is what the school officials require. It says, “If you want to continue to be the Pro-Life Club, you can be, but you cannot use the word ‘abortion’ in any of your communications. You cannot say the word ‘abortion’. You cannot write about it on Facebook. And you cannot do anything that uses the term ‘abortion’ if you want to have a pro-life club on campus.”

Rick:

And this is modeling the agreement I’m sure they had with the LGBT group that said, “You can’t use the word ‘homosexual’, or ‘sex ‘, or any of that. “ Right? I’m sure they do the same for other groups.

David:

No, no, no, Rick, you missed it. This was an offensive ideology. The other ideologies aren’t offensive.

They Aren’t Even Ideologies

Rick:

Oh, other ones aren’t offensive. They aren’t even ideologies, ideologies, whatever, they’re not either of those.

David:

That’s right. And “ideologies” is based on the key root word “idea”. So, it’s an idea. And certainly, pro LGBT, or Young Democrats, there are no ideas there. Wait a minute–

Rick:

There might not be any thinking there, but there might be some ideas there.

Tim:

Yeah. They are ideas, but mostly bad ideas.

Rick:

Yeah.

David:

That’s right.

Tim:

Like socialism and communism.

Rick:

Right.

Tim:

Yeah. Those are bad ideas.

David:

Yeah, bad ideas. So, that’s the first requirement you can have a pro-life club as long as you will not use, speak, right, or say, the word “abortion” in anything you do. Number two, you will only be allowed to continue as a pro-life club if you do not contact any outside legal counsel about this agreement.

You Have to Waive Your Right to Counsel?

Tim:

You have to waive your right to counsel–

David:

That’s right.

Rick:

Wow.

Tim:

–to be pro-life at this school, kid.

David:

And number three, you are not allowed to take this agreement home or to discuss it with your parents.

Rick:

Wow.

Tim:

Ummm. I think I would like to take it home, get a lawyer, and sue the school right now.

Rick:

Yes. Who are these people?

David:

Well, this is a school administration of course. And I wish I could say that this case is one in a billion or a gazillion occurrence, but it’s not. This is the stuff that happens regularly and all the time now. This is not an unusual occurrence. And so that’s why we have so many of these stories on Good News Friday because we win these things.

You Know How it Turns Out

David:

And obviously, this is a Good News Friday’s story, which tells you where this is going to end up. And you know, Tim, what you said is exactly what the kids did. They went and got Matt Staver of Liberty Counsel and said, “Um, we need help here.” And so Matt comes back and guess what? The school loses.

So, that’s good news. But it does reflect how crazy our education system has become.

Rick:

No doubt.

David:

That to be pro LGBT, or to be young Democrat, is not an ideology, but to be pro-life is an offensive idea.

Tim:

Well, I think more importantly, too, a lesson to be taken away from this is to not acquiesce to the pressure–

David:

That’s right.

Tim:

–from the other side.

Rick:

Yeah.

Tim:

Because to me, one of the good news is that the kids actually stood up and said, “Wait a second, no, we’re not doing this.” And so instead of just being kind of steamrolled, or railroaded, or whatever phrase you want to put there, they actually had a little backbone, or maybe it was parents. And actually, this is a big deal, too, because if parents don’t support this, it’s not going to move forward. So some student, some parent, collaboratively a group, whatever it is, gets together and goes to Matt and says, “Hey, we’re going to need some help on this.” To me the good news is not just that we win, because certainly our history, the Constitution, so many things are in favor of us winning that.

When We’re Willing to Stand

Tim:

But it’s always encouraging to see people that are willing to stand up for what’s right. And not be pushed, based on an agenda, by someone that’s certainly unconstitutional, certainly not historical, Biblical, or whatever else you are put with it. But really encouraging that you have people standing up to win this.

David:

Why would you say it’s not Constitutional when all they’re doing is taking away your right to free speech, your right to association, your right to have an attorney, and your right of parental involvement? Which is–

Rick:

Yeah, I was going to say to even talk to your parents about it.

David:

Yeah, why would you say that that is a Constitutional issue? But notice again that is the thinking of school officials.

Rick:

Yeah.

David:

This isn’t okay. And by the way, I will use the words “extortion” and “blackmail” on this. Because they are telling kids that love pro-life, “We’ll let you keep your pro-life club, but this is what you’ve got to do.” And that’s got to be a temptation to say, “Man, I want the pro-life club, I don’t want to lose the club.” And so the school puts them in a position of selling their birthright for a bowl of pottage.

And fortunately, as Tim points out, these kids stood up and said, “No way, we’re not doing that.”

Rick:

I have to wonder, just a week or two ago we did the series, David, from your talk at PFLC about how bad things are on university campuses. I have to wonder where these administrators and teachers went to college to get their education to get their lessons on here’s how you run a school, here’s how you are a good teacher. Think about it, we have to be teaching that somewhere for them to have thought this was okay.

Indoctrination, Not Education

David:

You made a wrong premise there, Rick. You said you wonder where they went to school to get their education. They did not. They went to school to get their indoctrination.

Rick:

Indoctrination. That’s right. That’s right.

David:

And that’s a big difference. And that’s one of the things that we’re able to point out statistically now is academic knowledge is falling, but the strength of conviction over ideas and ideology is growing. So indoctrination is on the rise. Knowledge is on the fall.

Rick:

Well, let’s get back to some good news. Got to take a quick break. We’ll be right back. Tim Barton is up next with some good news. Stay with us, you’re listening to WallBuilders Live.

Moment From American History.

This is Tim Barton from WallBuilders with another moment from American history. American Patriot Paul Revere road to alert Americans of the impending arrival of the British. But he also sought patriot leader Samuel Adams and John Hancock to warn them that the British were seeking their execution.

Adams and Hancock were staying with the Reverend Jonas Clark in Lexington. When they asked Pastor Clark if his church was ready for the approaching British he replied, “I’ve trained them for this very hour. They will fight and, if need be, die under the shadow of the house of God.”

Later that morning 70 men from his church, and several hundred British in the first battle of the War for Independence. As Pastor Clark affirmed, “The militia that morning was the same who filled the pews of the church meeting house on the Sunday morning before.”

The American church was regularly at the forefront of the fight for liberty. For more information on this pastor and other Colonial Patriots go to WallBuilders.com.

Rick:

We’re back here on WallBuilders Live on this Good News Friday. Thanks for staying with us. Tim Barton is up next with some good news. Tim–

Tim:

Guys, this is an interesting article I’m looking at. It deals with the March for Life coming up in, I guess, the Spring march. I don’t recall exactly the date, the article didn’t identify it, not the point. But what’s interesting is in the March for Life, they’re having a Democrat congressman speak at the March for Life.

Rick:

Where did they find him?

David:

Right around there with the dinosaur bones and the Tyrannosaurus Rex. That’s got to be an extinct animal.

The Very Last Pro-Life Democrat in Congress?

Tim:

Well, interesting you say “extinct” because what the article points out is this might be the very last pro-life Democrat in Congress. And it happens that it’s U.S. Rep Dan Lipinski, he’s a Democrat from Illinois–

David:

Oh, yeah, Illinois. He’s the co-chair of the Congressional Pro-Life Caucus, so that means there’s one Democrat with all the Republicans.

Tim:

Well, yeah, so what they point out is that this is not the normal Democrat position in this article. However, 28 percent of Democrats do say that abortion shouldn’t be legal in most cases. And 23 percent of Democrats consider themselves pro-life. Now it’s interesting when you look at a Democrat elected officials because you certainly don’t find 23 percent or 28 percent that are pro-life or are against abortion.

David:

Yeah, but that’s because 23 percent of a group of 100 percent will never elect anybody. And so in primaries with Democrat officials they can vote they’re 23 percent all day long and that’ll never get a pro-life official voted.

Tim:

No doubt. But it does illustrate this is not completely reflective of the people they represent.

David:

That’s true.

March For Life

Tim:

At least as a whole. But you know it’s interesting even when we talk about the differences of political parties, it’s one thing to say, “Hey, I think the economic solution is this.” “No, I think it’s this.” “I think the way to help the poor is this.” “No, I think is this.”

There are some things it’s understandable that we might have disagreements about the problem, about the solution. But when it comes to life and the unborn, or dismemberment or abortions, or whatever you want to throw in this, when it comes to the value of life, it’s crazy that there’s not more. However, it is kind of cool that this is going to be a not just a single partisan event. No, there’s going to be Democrats. Well, Democrat, I don’t know if it’s plural.

Republicans and Democrat that are there together marching for life. So, this is kind of a cool deal that this is something that at least for Rep Dan Lipinski, is beyond the isle divide. And says, “Wait a second, no, no, no, the right to life is more important than a political position a political difference.” And we’re going to stand together on the right to life. So, it is a pretty cool deal that’s coming up here this spring.

Washington D.C., the march for life, but now a piece of good news.

An Encouraging Note

Rick:

I was going to go back to our first piece of good news on campus just because we had an e-mail from a student also sharing some good news. Read that before we go to break. It’s actually an old *, it’s a homeschooler from Montana. Says, “Hello WallBuilders, just wanted to take a minute and thank you for everything you do. I’m a debater part of a homeschool conservative Christian debate league.

“I recently wrote a case to abolish safe spaces on college campuses–”

Tim:

I don’t know who this kid is, but I like him already.

Rick:

Already.

Tim:

Or maybe her, I’m not sure, I don’t know who we’re dealing with, but–

Rick:

Right.

Tim:

Student, debater, whoever you are.

Rick:

Right, we don’t know if it’s a guy or girl.

Tim:

Well, done.

Rick:

Yeah. I recently, anyway, “The other team argued that safe spaces promote free speech–” That hard to follow, but, yeah–

Tim:

Okay…

Rick:

I imagine he had fun with that one. Or she had fun with that one. “–and are protected by the First Amendment. But I was able to effectively argue original intent of the founding fathers and how safe spaces really promote entitlement and intolerance. And because of this, we won the round.

“These are principles I have known forever, but because of your program, I was able to organize and present them effectively. I also used some quotes out of Rick Green’s book, Freedom’s Frame–,” all of which I got from David Barton, by the way, whoever sent this in, just so you know. “–Thank you so much for everything. I’m also planning on attending the Northwest Regional Patriot Academy in 2018. Wasn’t able to attend last year, but this year I will be if I have to walk all the way there.”

So great news there.

Tim:

That is great.

Original Documents and TBN

Rick:

And you know, that’s another testament to the WallBuilders Library and you guys having those original documents that you’ve been collecting all these years. The fact that we’re able to make those available, whether it’s through our books, like the one I did on Freedoms Frame, or Original Intent, or all– Look, this is a student we don’t even know who this is. And here they are affecting the culture and influencing other students out there because of that library and because we were able to come back to those original documents. So, just praise the Lord and thank God for making that available to us and us being able to share it with others.

David:

Rick, I’ll put out a little blurb, too. If you like original documents, keep your eyes on the TBN television network in February. Because Tim and I just– we’ve done a couple of black history programs where we pull out some black history documents that are really kind of jaw-droppers for folks. And we actually have a guy that we interview on there who’s with us who will be with us on the programs. His name is Jim Lowe and he was one of the kids that survived the church bombing in Birmingham Alabama in ‘63.

He’s now a pastor, great guy, but the story of civil rights. But especially, your mentioning original documents. So, we did some filming for TBN on these programs. It’s going to be coming up, you can just check the listings and see. And by the way, TBN is really growing right now.

They’re the third largest domestic TV network in the nation. So, it’s going to get some exposure.

Tim:

We’ll also, by the way, put some updates out on our social media. So, if you follow us on Facebook or Twitter, or wherever it is, Instagram, I think we have there too. Or even the website, we will put up an update as it gets close to them airing the program. So, if you’ll check our social media, check the website, we’ll keep you updated. That way you can make sure you can tune in and see that program when it does come.

A Great Way to Follow

Rick:

In fact, social media is a great way to follow on that. I saw, Tim, your post where you all had a picture with Lowe, and then I forget the lady’s name that was Reverend Shuttlesworth’s secretary, but to get those stories. I mean, Shuttlesworth, he’s the one that, with the MLK, did that deal where you had to sign off and say, I’m going to think like Christ, speak like Christ, have love in my heart, and all that.

Tim:

Yeah, it was the Ten Commandments they had to sign in order to be a part of the march. Just very, very, cool.

Rick:

So cool.

Tim:

Yeah, so, Miss Gary, she was just so, so, fun to talk with. And actually, part of her interview is in this program.

Rick:

Awesome.

Tim:

So, it’s definitely worth checking out.

Rick:

Very cool. Pay attention to Facebook, folks. Go check that out. And also, you ought to be following anyway. David and Tim do some great updates there. And videos coming out of the library about once a week or so with bringing those documents to life, giving you a chance to see them. And you can actually visit the WallBuilders library, so you should check that out as well, all that information at WallBuilders.com.

Got to take a quick break. We’ll be right back with more good news right here on WallBuilders Live.

Pastors Only Briefing Trip

Tim:

Hi, this is Tim Barton with WallBuilders and I want to encourage all the pastors out there with a unique opportunity that we’re presenting it WallBuilders. We’re doing a special tour just for pastors that you can come and learn more about the spiritual heritage of our nation. Not just seeing the sights but understanding the significance of what they are and what they represent.

We get to go to the Capitol at night.  And we get to see the spiritual heritage of our Founding Fathers, of who we are as a nation, where we came from. We bring in congressman that will tell you about current legislation, about our religious liberties and freedom, and what’s going on in Washington, D.C.

If you’re a pastor or if you want to recommend your pastor for this trip, you can go to our website at www.WallBuilders.com. And there’s a link that’s for scheduling.  If you click on that link there’s a section for pastor’s briefing. There’s more information about the dates, when it’s going, and how it’s going to happen. If you want to know more about our nation, our religious liberties, our freedom, our spiritual heritage, this is a trip you want to be a part of.

Rick:

Welcome back. Thanks for staying with us on WallBuilders Live. Good News Friday today and I think it’s David’s turn. David Barton, give us some good news.

Civil Rights Issues

David:

I’m going as far northeast as you can go and that’s up into Maine. And in Maine, they have the Maine Civil Rights Act which sounds kind of like that would be a good act, right? Everybody needs civil rights protection except that it contains a noise ordinance. And the noise provision of the Civil Rights Act, and this is a noise provision in a civil rights act. It says that it’s illegal to make a noise that can be heard inside an abortion clinic if it interferes with an abortion.

Now that could be a car backfiring–

Tim:

Wow.

David:

–that could be–

Tim:

And that’s a civil rights issue.

David:

That’s a civil right that you cannot make a noise that can be heard inside.

Tim:

So, is it illegal to make a noise that might interfere with an optometrist? Or might interfere with a surgeon? Or–

David:

Don’t be logical. Don’t get logical.

Tim:

Yeah, or is it just when we murder babies? That’s the only time?

David:

Yeah, that’s right.

That’s right. That’s the only time. You’ve got to be really focused to murder babies apparently.

Tim:

Wow.

An Obama Appointee Makes the Right Decision

David:

And so they have this. And obviously, pro-life people protested that and said, “We’re going to court with that.” And they went to court in front of Judge Laurenson, an Obama appointee. And proceeded in a 35-page opinion to slap the dickens out of that civil rights act. That by itself, the fact they win in Maine is one good thing.

Second good thing is that it is an Obama appointee that made that decision. So, really good news out of the state of Maine in that they still get their Civil Rights Act. But it no longer contains a provision that says you can’t have free speech outside an abortion clinic.

Rick:

Going to take another quick break. Short segments here because we went long earlier today. We’ve got time for one more segment of good news. So stay with us, folks. We’ll be right back here on WallBuilders Live.

Biographical Sketches

Hi friends! This is Tim Barton of WallBuilders.This is a time when most Americans don’t know much about American history or even heroes of the faith. I know, oftentimes as parents, we’re trying to find good content for our kids to read.

If you remember back in the Bible, the Book of Hebrews it has the Faith Hall of Fame, where they outlined the leaders of faith that had gone before them. Well,, this is something that as Americans we really want to go back and outline some of these heroes not just of American history, but heroes of Christianity and our faith as well.

I wanted to let you know about some biographical sketches we have available on our website. One is called, “The Courageous Leaders Collection” and this collection includes people like Abigail Adams, Abraham Lincoln, Francis Scott Key, George Washington Carver, Susanna Wesley, even the Wright brothers.

There’s a second collection called, “Heroes of History” in this collection you read about people like Benjamin Franklin, Christopher Columbus, Daniel Boone, George Washington, Harriet Tubman, the list goes on and on.

This is a great collection for your young person to have and read. And it’s a providential view of American and Christian history. This is available at WallBuilders.com.

Rick:

Welcome back to WallBuilders Live. Tim Barton’s got some more good news for us. Tim, go for it, bro.

Nikki Haley’s Courageous Stand

Tim:

Well, guys, this one is something that came out a couple of weeks ago. We just haven’t had time to get to it yet. But when President Trump came out and recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, of course you know the U.N. voted the opposite direction, and what the U.S. did was bad, and there was all this fallout. Nikki Haley was so courageous and she stands up to the U.N. and says, “Look, you’re not going to tell us what we’re going to do. We’re a sovereign nation.”

Then she and Trump identify, announce, that they’re going to lose some of the funding going to the U.N. So, a lot of things happening. But one of the things that we have long known, and history reveals, is that oftentimes, the only thing that’s necessary is for a leader to step up. And once there is leadership, other people begin to follow. Well, as is the case, when President Trump said, “No, we recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.”

Other nations have begun. Now, not the majority of the U.N., for sure, I’ll clarify that. However, other nations are now moving that direction. In fact, in this article, it identifies that the Czech Republic has come out and declared it will also recognize western Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. It identifies other nations that were moving that direction at the time. I haven’t had time to look up and see how many of those–

David:

I think I saw that Guatemala is now about to. I think there are nine or ten nations now that are following the U.S. lead. Which is significant because when we had that vote on the resolution, only nine nations voted in favor of the embassy being in Jerusalem. And now we’ve got more nations than that willing to step up and move their own embassy there.

When You’re Willing to Stand, Others Will Follow

Tim:

Well, and to me, it then goes back to this idea of leadership. Where when you have someone stand up when you’re willing to be a leader, sometimes you stand by yourself. But if you’re standing courageously, oftentimes other people start following you. Which certainly does seem to be the case at the U.N..

I’ve also got another one which is similar in the sense of influence coming from the White House, or from different departments, different administrations, things with the president. This is from the Department of Justice. And if you guys remember back there were some big exposés, videos come out exposing where individuals from Planned Parenthood were selling baby parts, where they were making money off of it. And when this was all coming out, Congress had committees looking over it and they were trying to get to the bottom, and investigating what happened, what was legal. And obviously, it’s illegal to sell, to traffic, in body parts.

That is illegal, always has been. But there was just some contention about, “Well, wait a second. Were they really selling it? Was it going to medical research?” Whatever it was. But this was happening and the presidential administration at the time did not want to do anything with it.

The Department of Justice Investigating Planned Parenthood

Tim:

Well, it was announced that the Department of Justice has confirmed it is now investigating Planned Parenthood’s involvement in the sale of fetal tissue from induced abortions going back to what those videos exposed. So, maybe Planned Parenthood at the end of this is not guilty of this heinous act. There are certainly others that are. Abortion in general, murder in general, are pretty heinous acts.

However, at least we have people in the government going, “Wait a second, this is a federal crime. This is a felony. Let’s at least investigate and see if they were guilty of this.” So, the Department of Justice is looking into it. So, that’s good news, again, coming from the current presidential administration.

David:

And this really is not a partisan issue in the sense of, Obama didn’t do it and now Trump is doing it. It is a federal law that is on the books that was passed by Congress. This is not a presidential administration choice of what they do and don’t follow. So, this is a good thing you have the Justice Department actually following the law. Which is what the Justice Department is supposed to do.

Didn’t do in the last administration on this issue, but it is now. And that’s the second part of the good news to this.

Good News Friday: Trump Backs Haley, Students Win, Pro-Life Democrat at March For Life, and More!

Rick:

How different are our Good News Fridays over the last year than eight years before that?  There were other pockets of good news, but we certainly didn’t have this much good news coming out of the presidential administration in Washington D.C. So, it’s great to be able to share that with you folks.

You can get more good news on our website, WallBuildersLive.com. Be sure and check that out there and also throughout the week. Great programming, but Friday specifically on that good news. Appreciate you joining us today. You’ve been listening to WallBuilders Live.
