Jim opened this edition of Crosstalk with news that Kim Davis, the Rowan County, Kentucky, clerk who was jailed for choosing not to issue same-sex marriage licenses, has been released from jail. The judge in the case has indicated that he is satisfied that since last week, the clerk's office is issuing licenses to all legally eligible couples.

Preparation is underway in 3 major cities for the Pope's visit to the United States. Screens will be set up on the Capitol lawn so that people can hear what the Pope has to say and some congressmen will be streaming the Pope's message through their websites.

Other than the fact that Pope Francis will be addressing the United Nations as well as being the first Pope ever to address the U.S. Congress, should we be concerned that the Catholic faith, and the Pope in particular, generate so much attention?

Addressing this issue was Mike Gendron. For over 30 years Mike was a devout Roman Catholic and was taught to rely upon the authority of the church. He followed the priests, the sacraments and was depending upon his own good works for salvation. However in 1981, after attending an apologetics seminar called, 'Evidence for the Christian Faith,' the Bible became his sole authority in all matters of faith. As he searched the Scriptures he was amazed to see how often the Bible contradicts the teaching and tradition of the church he had been a part of for so long. Mike placed his trust in Jesus Christ as Savior and the Bible became his sole authority in all matters of faith. He founded a ministry, Proclaiming the Gospel, that points people to Jesus Christ as the all-sufficient Savior.

Mike believes that Pope Francis is the most influential false prophet on the earth today as he is deceiving 1.2 billion souls. He is not pointing people to Jesus but rather he's pointing people to the unbiblical and ungodly traditions of a false religion.

Mike loves Roman Catholics yet teaches that the Pope is not the Holy Father. The true Holy Father is Jesus' Father. Jesus prayed to Him in his high priestly prayer so it grieves Mike to see evangelicals, the media and political leaders referring to the Pope as the Holy Father.

Ultimately it's Mike's desire to point Roman Catholics to the Word of God. In contrast, Mike noted that the Pope is making changes in the annulment process. Annulments aren't even in the Bible so it can't have anything to do with salvation as Pope Francis believes.

Other points of interest that Mike discussed included:

--Pope Francis has become the most inclusive Pope in the history of the Roman Catholic church because he goes against historic Roman Catholic theology. One example would be his teaching that atheists can follow their conscience into heaven as long as they are sincere. Another would be his reinstatement of a professing homosexual priest to ministry.
--According to Revelation 13, 17 & 18, we see that the end-times will be marked by a global religion, global government and a global economy and this Pope has his hands in all 3. Is there a Jesuit agenda that lines up with these portions of Scripture?
--The body of St. Maria Goretti (the Patroness of mercy) will be sent around the U.S. beginning September 21st with the hope of healings taking place.
--Oprah and other Hollywood personalities have been invited to the Vatican to discuss how the church is perceived by Western media influencers and looking for ways to improve its portrayal in entertainment.
--The Pope has also said that during this upcoming Jubilee Year of Forgiveness, you can walk through the 'holy door' and obtain a plenary indulgence. What does this mean?

Vic Eliason sat behind the microphone for this edition of Crosstalk that looked at the following items of interest making news in recent days:

--Willow Creek Presbyterian Church in Florida hires the former senior pastor of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church in Fort Lauderdale who left after admitting marital infidelity.

--Rowan County, Kentucky, Clerk, Kim Davis, was taken into custody yesterday and is to remain in jail until she agrees to issue same-sex marriage licenses.

--Iranian aggression against U.S. allies in the Middle East continues in spite of the nuclear agreement. For example, the Iranian backed Hezbollah organization was caught attempting to establish a terrorist network comprising several cells in the West Bank with the goal of orchestrating attacks against Jews in that territory and beyond.

--Hezbollah sought to pay the chief of each terror cell $400 per month while each regular member would receive $100 per month in salary for killing Jews. The 'terrorists for hire' would receive bonus funds for each attack successfully orchestrated with the amount depending upon the size and importance of the attack as well as the number of Jewish casualties.

Jim began this issue of Crosstalk by informing listeners that Rowan County, Kentucky, clerk, Kim Davis, has been ordered to jail and to remain there until she agrees to issue licenses for same-sex marriages bearing her name. The plaintiffs didn't request incarceration but the federal judge felt that financial fines were not enough and ordered her to jail.

Brad Mattes is the president and CEO of life Issues Institute based in Cincinnati. Brad is also president of the International Right to Life Federation, a frequent international speaker and lecturer on abortion and related life issues. He is also chairman of the board of directors of the Terri Schiavo Life and Hope Network.

A 9th abortion related video has been released by the Center for Medical Progress. Brad noted that these videos have done more to educate the public about the truth concerning Planned Parenthood than his efforts over the past two decades.

Due to states and corporations that are withdrawing or ending support or Planned Parenthood, Brad believes these videos have caused the Planned Parenthood brand to become 'toxic.' The result is that they are being treated by some like a leper rather than a respected charity and non-profit organization.

On August 27th, Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood, said in a letter to Congress that some of their affiliates were paid as much as $60 for a specimen. Then the film was released that showed a price list where an intact baby goes for as high as $540. This shows how Planned Parenthood knows they are killing and dissecting and selling baby body parts for money. Brad described it as 'blood money' and a 'cash cow' for this industry and it's time to stop the federal funding.

Won't women have nowhere to turn if funding is stopped? Brad noted that there are over 11,000 community health centers across the U.S. that provide comprehensive health care (not abortion) to low income men and women who need it. Actually they'd get greater health care because they'd be attending facilities that have much more to offer. Why is that? Because there are no (zero) Planned Parenthood Federation of America centers that provide mammograms. Mammograms are referred out so women actually have to go elsewhere.

Of their pregnancy services, 94% of women who are pregnant and walk into a Planned Parenthood clinic come out not pregnant because their baby was killed.

Other points discussed on this program include:

--Does Planned Parenthood deny future services or send a bill to women who want to keep their baby after having what they thought was a free pregnancy test?
--What is Stem Express and what is their part in the harvesting/sales process?
--Is the allegation that Stem Express is intimidating former employees into silence true?
--Why have CBS, NBC and ABC been so silent about the recent video releases?
--What is Brad's hope in regard to the House/Senate committee hearings on this issue?
--Are any states being punished for taking away funding from Planned Parenthood?

On June 26th, 5 members of the Supreme Court created what they described as a constitutional right for so-called same-sex marriage. Dissenting justices warned that trouble was ahead and they were correct as a Rowan County, Kentucky, clerk is being asked to appear in federal court tomorrow to defend her religious liberty because her conscience will not allow her to issue same-sex marriage licenses.

Joining Jim to discuss this critical situation was Mat Staver. Mat is the founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel, an international nonprofit litigation, education and policy organization dedicated to advancing religious freedom, the sanctity of life and the family.

The woman in question is Kim Davis. Kim has been in the Rowan County, Kentucky, clerks office for 27 years but in November of 2014 she won election to be the head of that office.

For those who may be tempted to think Kim is judging others by not issuing same-sex marriage licenses and may think she's being hypocritical because of her 3 divorces are not aware of her past. As Mat pointed out, Kim was a different person 4-1/2 years ago. At that time her mother-in-law was dying and had a wish that Kim would attend church at least once. To fulfill that wish, Kim went to church and she heard the pastor preach from the book of Galatians. Jim quoted Kim as having said, 'I owe my life to Jesus Christ who loves me and gave his life for me. Following the death of my godly mother-in-law over 4 years ago I went to church to fulfill her dying wish. There I heard a message of grace and forgiveness and surrendered my life to Jesus Christ. I am not perfect, no one is but I am forgiven and I love my Lord and must be obedient to him and to the Word of God.'

The result? Kim, her husband, along with the staff of Liberty Counsel have been hit with threats of violence and death.

As Mat pointed out, there are about 130 locations throughout the state where the homosexual couples trying to obtain marriage licenses in Rowan County could go. Instead, these couples want Kim's name affixed to their marriage licenses because, as Mat put it, '...they want Kim Davis to violate her conscience; they want to shred her beliefs.'

Mat made an appeal for a stay and that was granted until August 31. Then Liberty Counsel asked the Court of Appeals to stay it beyond August 31 pending the several months it will take to resolve the appeal. The court declined to do that. Liberty Counsel then went to the Supreme Court and they declined to extend the stay as well.

Jim requested prayer for Kim because as already noted, she is to appear in federal court tomorrow.

What is Common Core? How is it being used to influence children? Is it something new or is it actually an old idea packaged in a new wrapper?

Joining Jim to discuss this issue was E. Ray Moore. He's the president of Frontline Ministries, Inc. and the Exodus Mandate Project. He is a retired Chaplain and Lieutenant Colonel with the United States Army Reserve. He's the author of 'Let My Children Go,' the executive producer of the film, 'Indoctrination' and on this program he brought attention to the DVD, 'Escaping Common Core: Setting Our Children Free.'

Common Core is a new term for an old agenda where new national standards have been created. It began under Horace Mann who kicked off the concept of state-sponsored public schools in the 1830's and '40's in Boston. From there you move into the progressive era in the turn of the 20th century with John Dewey.

President Bush (Senior) had 'America 2000,' President Clinton had 'Goals 2000,' Bush (Jr.) had 'No Child Left Behind' and President Obama has had 'Race to the Top.' Moore believes all of these are the unfolding of the same agenda that involves control and indoctrination through government schools. It's part of a worldwide socialism model to dumb-down the culture and move away from traditional pedagogy and education.

Organizations involved in the formation of Common Core included the National Governors Association and the Council of Chief State School Officers. It started with language arts and math and Moore believes it will move into social studies and history. They were largely funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

Moore believes the root of this effort involves humanism and secularism and that it has bi-partisan support at the national level.

If you're concerned about how Common Core is affecting textbooks, the atmosphere in the classrooms our how it may even affect our national sovereignty, you'll want to review this Crosstalk broadcast.
