This Crosstalk began with a very sobering 9-11 presentation narrated by WVCY's Gordon Morris. Along with help from media voices that were viewing the events as they occurred, Gordon's presentation began like this:

“At 8:46am disaster strikes as hijackers fly American Airlines Flight 11 into the North Tower of the World Trade Center in New York City.

Then, just moments later, at 9:03am, the hijacked American Airlines Flight 175 is flown into the South Tower of the World Trade Center.

As rescue crews at the World Trade Center worked to find survivors another disaster loomed on the horizon. American Airlines Flight 77 is on a crash course for Washington, D.C. And at 9:40am, it plunges into the side of the Pentagon killing a total of 125 people.

Almost simultaneously, another flight, this time United Flight 93, is also hijacked and at 10:07am that plane crashes into a field in rural Pennsylvania.”

In subsequent days, God suddenly became popular, flags were everywhere and churches were filled. Unfortunately over many days, weeks, months and now 13 years later, most of that reliance upon God has disappeared. Today many people in America want nothing to do with God, some going so far as to portray anything about God as being...unconstitutional.

As the broadcast continued, Vic challenged listeners to provide answers to the following questions:

--What have we learned from 9-11?

--Did 9-11 draw us closer to God as a nation or more distant?

--Do you see the number one problem in our nation as safety/security or is our
greatest need a spiritual one?

--What spiritual lessons are we missing as a nation regarding 9-11?

--How do you see the state of the church since 9-11?

--Are you satisfied or dissatisfied with our national and state leaders in how
they're revering spiritual things?

--Are you satisfied or dissatisfied with our churches in how they revere spiritual
things and responsibility toward God?

Mat Staver is the founder, president and general counsel of Liberty Counsel, an international, non-profit litigation, education and policy organization dedicated to advancing religious freedom, the sanctity of life and the family.

According to a Rasmussen Report, 66% of likely voters polled feel America is headed in the wrong direction. Vic had Mat comment on those things that are helping to drive this feeling of uncertainty.

For example, Matt presented an update on the case of Justina Pelletier, the young girl who was separated from her parents for 16 months by Massachusetts legal and medical authorities.

Another item of discussion concerned the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals that struck down marriage protection amendments in Wisconsin and Indiana. Liberty Counsel filed briefs in these cases. Mat comments on 7th Circuit Court Judge Richard Posner, who believes that if a rapist gets more pleasure from raping than the victim gets from the assault, perhaps we should issue the rapist a rape license.

As the program continued, Vic and Mat discussed the latest on the IRS scandal, Obamacare, American policy regarding Israel and input/questions from Crosstalk listeners.

Guest: Usama Dakdok

Usama Dakdok is the founder of The Straight Way of Grace Ministry which equips Christians to be effective witnesses of Jesus Christ to their Muslim neighbors as well as minister to Muslims directly. Usama was born in Egypt where he grew up in a Christian home. He learned Islam in government schools as every student does in a Muslim country. Usama also studied for a university degree in Egypt which included the study of Sharia. He came to the United States in 1992 and founded The Straight Way of Grace Ministry where he travels the country revealing the truth about Islam.

Usama noted that the beheading of Christian men all over the Muslim world by ISIS is a direct command of Allah's word in the Quran (Chapter 33 verses 26-27). In a total of 79 verses, Allah commands Muslims to engage in war with all infidels. In spite of this, President Obama and others continue to insist that the carnage and death brought on by ISIS (and other Islamic terrorists) does not represent the peaceful religion of Islam.

Along with proving from the Quran (the six terror verses) how Islamic terrorists are actually obeying the teachings of Islam, Usama and Jim also covered these concerns:

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and his Department of Justice is suing the city of St. Anthony, Minnesota, for alleged religious discrimination because the city rejected a proposed Islamic center back in 2012.

Usama explained that Muslims have built illegal camps (and mosques) on U.S. soil to train Muslims and to act as military bases for future ISIS-style jihad against American citizens. He believes government officials know this but have kept it secret for fear of offending the feelings of moderate Muslims.

Usama teaches that there is no such thing as a moderate Muslim. He believes the so-called moderates are really Muslim jihadi dressed in shirts and ties. He further emphasized this point by noting that the phrase 'radical Muslim' is an American invention; that this phrase does not exist in the Quran. Instead, Mohammed and Allah both teach that those who engage in war for Allah are 'believers' not 'radicals'.

Are those of the Islamic faith keeping a low profile until they are confident they have the upper hand? Are we open to attack on the upcoming anniversary of 9-11? Is Iran's contention that they will have a strong roll in creating the New World Order plausible? Is all of this just fear mongering? These questions and more are considered when you review this challenging Crosstalk broadcast.

Guest: Paul Taylor

Paul Taylor is the soon to be director of the Mount St. Helens Creation Information Center. He has been speaking and writing on the subject of creation for more than 30 years and was the senior speaker and manager of Answers in Genesis in the U.K. He was born in England and received a master's degree in science education and a degree in chemistry. He was a science teacher in England and then in South Wales. He is the author of several books including, 'Don't Miss the Boat: Facts to Keep Your Faith Afloat,' 'No Time for Itching Ears,' 'The Six Days of Genesis' and several other titles.

Sometimes people aren't aware of certain kinds of information or they don't want to be aware of that information. Paul explained that in the latter case the refusal stems from presuppositions that people bring to any subject, including the subject of origins. In other words, the secular humanist has presuppositions as well. That makes it difficult for them to interpret evidence in any way other than through the 'lens' they've already developed. It takes a tremendous change in their worldview in order for them to see things differently.

Some people refuse to accept what's clearly in front of them in spite of the fact that the biblical presupposition, unlike the evolutionary presupposition, is the one that is self-evidently true. You can't explain scientific laws or laws of morality or logic apart from God. It's absurd to think that these things started by random chance. Unfortunately there's a spiritual blindness that causes people to refuse to accept the truth. It's a blindness that the apostle Paul talks about in Romans chapter 1.

As this Crosstalk moved along, Jim and the listeners had Paul comment on the following:

--More and more Christian colleges, churches and entertainers don't take Genesis
1-11 literally. Does it matter?

--Is the 'Big Bang' theory a biblically or scientifically viable option?

--What books are available to help children know the truth about creation science?

--The basics of radiometric dating.

...and much more.

Guest: Julaine Appling

Julaine Appling is the President of Wisconsin Family Council. Their mission is to advance Judeo-Christian principles and values in Wisconsin by strengthening, preserving and promoting marriage, family, life and liberty.

According to Julaine, Planned Parenthood is an organization that purports to be about women's health and has successfully developed this image to such an extent that even some pastors have recommended them. These pastors have done this, not necessarily because they are pro-abortion, but because they are ignorant of who Planned Parenthood really is.

So what is Planned Parenthood? Planned Parenthood is America's largest abortion provider that was founded by eugenicist Margaret Sanger. Sanger was one of the first proponents of contraception who believed that people of certain ethnic backgrounds shouldn't have children.

Julaine communicated that Planned Parenthood has set out to annihilate pregnancy resource centers. They have taken action legally and legislatively against such centers along with executing public relation campaigns to besmirch and present false allegations against them.

What else do parents needs to know? They need to realize that Planned Parenthood promotes promiscuity. They bring a message to public school teens that pre-marital sex is fine; that teens just need to be safe about it and that they can help them in that pursuit. This has led to efforts like the one in Beloit, Wisconsin, where they have a school board approved, in-school health clinic at one of their high schools. On Wednesdays students can come in and obtain pelvic exams and other reproductive 'health care' services.

In response Julaine recommended that parents inquire about obtaining the proper forms that would allow them to opt their children out of any program that would in any way deal with sex education.
