Air Date: January 1, 2015
Host: Vic Eliason
Beginning with some biblical instruction concerning Elijah and the prophets of Baal, Vic came to a point that is critical to understanding the main thrust of this Crosstalk. Vic qoted from 1 Kings 18 where it says, “And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? If the Lord be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word.”
Vic then asked if things aren’t that way now as people are being challenged to make that decision and they remain in the valley of decision.
This would seem to be the case, even at the highest levels of our government, as beginning with words of adulation from Representative Rush Holt of New Jersey (and an introduction by Speaker of the House John Boehner), Imam Hamad Ahmad Chebli of the Islamic Society of Central Jersey took to the House floor. He delivered a prayer declaring Allah as the most gracious, the most merciful, the sustainer of the world, the master of the day of judgment.
Vic played the audio cut of the Imam and then took calls from Crosstalk listeners to gauge their response to this prayer of blasphemy against Almighty God.
