Since late last week when Indiana Governor Mike Pence signed into law the state's Religious Freedom Restoration Act (SB-101), the LGBT activist community and left-leaning groups have been in a frenzy. Their response shows how America has become entrenched in an extremist, left-wing, anti-Christian and anti-God mentality that appears to want nothing more than to trample the religious freedoms established in our Constitution.

Joining Jim Schneider to discuss this issue was Mat Staver, the founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel and chairman of Liberty Counsel Action. Mat holds Bachelor, Master and Juris Doctorate degrees and an Honorary Doctorate of Laws and a Doctorate of Divinity. He has argued two landmark cases before the United States Supreme Court as lead counsel and written numerous briefs before the High Court. Mat has argued in numerous state and federal courts across the country and has over 230 published legal opinions. He has authored hundreds of popular articles, eight scholarly law review publications, numerous brochures and booklets and 11 books, most of which focus on constitutional law. His two most recent books are, 'Eternal Vigilance: Knowing and Protecting Your Religious Freedom' which is the most comprehensive book ever written on religious liberty and 'Same-Sex Marriage: Putting Every Household at Risk.'

Indiana's new law has historic precedent that goes back to the 1990's. In 1993, the Federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act was overwhelmingly approved by Congress and signed into law by Democrat President Bill Clinton. After that time, individual states began to form their own similar restoration acts modeled after the federal law.

So now, with 20 years of history behind it, Indiana signed their version and LGBT activists and a segment of the media are acting as though Christians will be allowed to deny homosexuals the right to buy a hamburger at their local fast food restaurant. Instead, as Mat described it, the law is about allowing individuals to refrain from participation, celebration and promotion of anything that is contrary to their religious beliefs.

Should a Jewish print shop be required to print 'Death to Israel' signs? If the LGBT community were correct in their argumentation, logical consistency would demand that such signs be printed and Mat said that this example is not an over-exaggeration. In fact, he indicated that this would mean a printing company owned by an African-American individual would be viewed as showing wrongful discrimination by refusing a job to print literature promoting a pro-KKK rally.

As Mat described it, ' see this intolerant homosexual agenda that's now coming out-of-the-closet if you will, and revealing their intolerance against any person of faith. They want no religious freedom, no accommodation for someone who has a sincerely held religious belief that does not agree with their lifestyle.'

Dr. David Stevens is the chief Executive Officer of the Christian Medical & Dental Society, a national organization of Christian doctors that seek to change hearts in healthcare. Dr. Stevens is the author of 'Jesus MD: A Doctor Examines the Great Physician' and 'Beyond Medicine: What Else You need to Know to be a Healthcare Missionary.' Dr. Stevens has helped develop an evangelism training program that teaches thousands of doctors and others how to share their faith in a healthcare setting.

Doctor (physician) assisted suicide says that when a patient is terminally ill and the doctor believes they only have only 6 months to live, the patient can request a lethal prescription. This must be done through 2 oral requests and 1 written request. This process requires that the doctor lie on the death certificate in 3 states and say that the patient died by their disease and not of suicide.

Isn't this a contradiction to the Hippocratic Oath? Yes it is but as Vic pointed out, in order to prevent doctor assisted suicide from looking so grotesque, they gave it a label: death with dignity. Dr. Stevens responded by informing listeners that verbal engineering always precedes social engineering. We see this from the organization once named The Hemlock Society. Obviously having a name derived from a poison wasn't very marketable so now they call themselves Compassion and Choices.

Dr. Stevens summarized this program very well when he explained that doctor assisted suicide isn't about giving patients the right to die, it's about giving doctors the right to kill. It's an attempt to wrap the respectability of healthcare around an idea that we've looked on with disfavor in our culture ever since this nation was formed.

Dr. Stevens believes compassion is not a handful of lethal pills. Compassion involves coming alongside someone and helping them bear their burden. Doctor assisted suicide is an escape from compassion for those who are around the patient.

This edition of Crosstalk featured a recorded message by Shahram Hadian, born in Iran, a former Muslim, now a Christian Pastor and former candidate for Governor of the State of Washington. This message was originally presented at a Steeling the Mind Conference put on by Compass International which brings top Christian speakers together to address timely spiritual issues. Shahram speaks on the critical issues facing this nation and has started the Truth in Love Project. He warns of the true goal of Islam and the threat of Shariah.

In this message, Shahram quotes from Scripture saying that in the Tribulation multitudes will lose their lives to “beheadings” (Rev. 20:4). Is the recent rise of Muslim led beheadings a sign of what’s ahead? Shahram explains in detail.

Due to time constraints, this Crosstalk does not contain Mr. Hadian’s entire message. However for a limited time we are making copies of the complete message available on CD for a donation of $6 or on DVD for a donation of $12 (includes postage).

(Note: The DVD is recommended as Shahram uses a power point presentation and video in the presentation).

Guest: David Rubin

David Rubin is the former mayor of Shiloh, Israel, in the region of Samaria known to most of the world as the West Bank. He is the founder and president of Shiloh Israel Children's Fund. He is also the author of four books including his latest, 'Sparks From Zion.'

Israel utilizes a parliamentary system of government although it is different from the parliamentary system of Europe. Israel has about 10 different parties that are elected to be in the Knesset (Israel's parliament) each year. So unlike voting in the U.S., in Israel they don't vote for an individual, they vote for a political party. At the end of the election the president of Israel (whose position is mostly ceremonial) meets with the heads of the political parties that were elected to the Knesset and the head of each of those parties recommends who they think should form the next governing coalition.

In the case of the recent election, Benjamin Netanyahu won reelection so it's his responsibility to form the new governing coalition. He does this by meeting with the heads of each of the political parties, negotiates with them and after this process is complete, he decides who is to be given certain tasks in the government such as Minister of Defense, Minister of Finance, etc. That completes the governing coalition of the majority of the Knesset.

David believes Netanyahu's reelection sends a multifaceted signal to the world. On one hand you have the message that the policies of Israel will move politically to the 'right.' In addition, he sees Netanyahu's reelection as revenge. Although perhaps not intentional, it was at least implicit revenge against President Obama because the President, along with his administration, clearly did not want Netanyahu to win.

As the program moved along, Vic had David comment on the following:

--Why the disdain by President Obama toward Prime Minister Netanyahu?
--Where does Benjamin Netanyahu stand on the 2-state solution?
--Did Israel spy on the U.S. and the U.S./Iran nuclear arms talks?
--Is anti-semitism on the rise?
