Jim began this edition of Crosstalk with updates on the following stories:

--Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality won his appeal before the Canadian border security agency. They were trying to stop him saying that he was a potential violator of Canada's hate propaganda law because he was set to speak before an audience in Saskatchewan.

--The parents of Justina Pelletier of Massachusetts filed a writ of habeas corpus seeking to have custody returned to them directly. (See Crosstalk—April 1)

Regarding the main topic, about 2 years ago a programmer in Germany accidentally made an error in the SSL encryption that protects about 60% of the traffic on the Internet. It meant that for some period of time, websites were vulnerable to have hackers come in and obtain sensitive information.

Known as the 'Heartbleed' bug, it raises some interesting questions. For example: Why didn't the government warn the public about this? Is it possible that the NSA exploited this? Is your personal information with the IRS really safe?

Find out the answers to these and other questions along with what you should do to keep your personal information safe.

Jim brought up numerous examples showing how the word is broken and that includes America. For example:

--Nations are involved in civil war.
--Nations are threatening other nations with war.
--Mass killings are going on every single day.
--U.S. influence is dwindling throughout the world.
--U.S. debt is spiraling out of control. It's at 17.5 trillion dollars.
--The separation of powers in the U.S. is eroding.
--Activist judges are filling in the gaps of the legislative branch.
--There's increasing antagonism between the branches of our government.
--We're taking life at both ends of the age spectrum via abortion and euthanasia.
--Traditional marriage is breaking down and being redefined.
--Schools are told you can't sing Christmas songs that talk about Christ's birth.
--We have a government that is directing health care decisions into our homes.
--Violence is escalating in society.
--City counsel members are being told not to pray in the name of Jesus.
--Americans are now divided on the importance of attending church.
--Doctrine is being de-emphasized while experience is being highlighted.
--Marriages are being torn apart.
--Adultery is becoming commonplace.
--Children are bringing action against their parents and vice-versa.
--Children are being left to themselves and their electronic gadgets.

How do we fix the situation? Jim opened the phone lines early to allow listeners the opportunity to answer that vital question.

Guest: Dr. Elizabeth Vliet

Dr. Elizabeth Vliet is a medical doctor with practices in Tucson and Dallas. She is President of International Health Strategies whose mission is twofold: liberty and privacy in treatment options and preservation of the Oath of Hippocrates focus on the individual patient. She is a past board member of AAPS (Association of American Physicians and Surgeons). She spoke at numerous Healthcare Town Halls addressing the economic and medical impact of the 2010 healthcare law. She spoke on this Crosstalk as an independent physician.

Dr. Vliet discussed the top 9 ways the government is attacking senior citizens. Here are the first five:

1—In a 678 page rule proposed by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services in January 2014, all prescribers of drugs covered under Medicare Part B would have to be enrolled in Medicare in order to do that. With the new rule, the CMS is proposing to restrict the ability of Medicare beneficiaries to use their Medicare benefits if they see an independent physician outside the system.

2—Hospitals are increasingly classifying hospitalized Medicare patients as being 'under observation' rather than admitting them under 'in-patient' status. They're not telling patients that this means thousands of dollars in out-of-pocket costs as only 'in-patient' status is covered under Medicare Part A hospital benefits. 'Observation' status comes under Part B outpatient benefits which are lower reimbursements.

3—As of the Fall of 2012, Medicare's new rules deny payment if a hospital patient is readmitted within 30 days of discharge. That's a serious situation for patients that might get stabilized, go home and become unstable again for some reason. If the patient is not readmitted when it's medically needed before their 30 days of post hospital time is over, they may die. On the other hand, if they are admitted as 'under observation' status rather than 'in-patient' status, they get hit with a huge hospital bill.

4—Under Obamacare hospitals are forced to do fewer surgeries for Medicare patients in order to be paid more money. So if a doctor is employed by the hospital they may not tell you that the reason why they're not suggesting a surgery you could benefit from is because the hospital will be paid more if they do fewer surgeries. In other words, one's they've met the quota, there's no incentive to being paid less by doing more surgeries.

5—Except for government determined co-payments that are allowed, Medicare patients are not legally allowed to pay cash out-of-pocket for needed, covered services if they see a Medicare contracted physician. Patients have to find a physician who has legally opted out of Medicare if they wish to pay cash for services rendered or if they want to keep their medical records from being sent to the federal government medical database.

There are four more points to be aware of if you are concerned about your health care management. Find out what they are when you review this critical edition of Crosstalk.

Air Date: April 8, 2014

Host: Vic Eliason

Guest: Peter LaBarbera

Listen: MP3 | Order

Peter LaBarbera is the Founder and President of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality.

Vic began this edition of Crosstalk with 2 items. The first involved news that Liberty University has hired an open homosexual advocate (Geoffrey Goldberg) to produce its upcoming Broadway-style Mary Poppins program.

Secondly, on his television program, controversial evangelist Benny Hinn announced that he has a Bible course and that if you contract with Liberty University for their course then he will ordain you to become a minister under his auspices.

Regarding the main topic: Does the price of citizenship now include having to give up your religious liberties? That's apparently the case as the U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear the appeal of 2 Christian photographers, Jonathan and Elaine Huguenin, from New Mexico. They politely refused to take pictures for a lesbian commitment ceremony for reasons of faith. The lesbians sued and used the New Mexico sexual orientation law to get their way. Since the U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear the appeal, the New Mexico decision stands.

Other stories that Vic had Peter comment on included:

--Mozilla's CEO, Brendan Eich, was forced to step down under pressure because it was discovered he gave $1,000 to a pro-family agency 8 years ago.

--Illinois proposes to ban pro-heterosexual change therapy.

--Saskatchewan Pro-Life Association has asked Peter to speak but a group of liberal minded individuals decided that because of Peter's work against the homosexual agenda they have targeted the Saskatchewan Pro-Life Association to get Peter disinvited as a speaker. Now they're writing a government official to have Peter turned around when his plane lands.

--Peter's use of the phrases: 'Homo-Marxist' agenda or “Homo-Fascist” agenda.

--The Office of Personnel Management has developed new diversity and inclusion reference materials regarding the employment of transgender individuals in the federal workplace.

--On April 14th, Ohio is set to recognize out of state marriages.

--South Dakota may join the other 28 states with marriage equality cases. 2 women will marry in Minnesota at the end of April. When they return to South Dakota they plan to use their Minnesota marriage credentials to apply for a name change. If denied, they plan to file a legal challenge against South Dakota's ban on recognized, out-of-state marriages between same-sex couples.

Guest: Shahram Hadian

Listen: MP3 | Order

This edition of Crosstalk featured a recorded message by Shahram Hadian, a former Muslim, now a Christian pastor and recent candidate for Governor of the State of Washington. His message was originally presented at a recent Steeling the Mind Conference put on by Compass International which brings top Christian speakers together to address timely spiritual issues. Shahram travels around the country speaking on critical issues facing us as Americans and has started the Truth in Love Project. He warns of the true goal of Islam and the threat of Shariah.

There are many well-meaning Bible teachers defending a philosophy called Chrislam. Chrislam claims that both the Bible and the Qur'an are divine truth and that Muslims and Christians have a common God and a common Jesus.

Is this concept scriptural? Is this the answer to peace that many are looking for or is it merely an attempt by Islam to remake the spiritual fabric of American society? Find out more when you review this critical edition of Crosstalk.
