"If Facebook were a country, it would have the largest population on earth. More than 2.2 billion people, about a third of humanity, log in at least once a month. That user base has no precedent in the history of American enterprise. Fourteen years after it was founded, in Zuckerberg’s dorm room, Facebook has as many adherents as Christianity." - The New Yorker, Sept. 17, 2018

Researchers from MIT and The New Yorker are now beginning to ask the same questions about Facebook and Google that we have been asking for years. This is a program you simply cannot miss.

Many Americans are grieving over the state of the nation. We see the bleeding out of our federal government in trillions of debt. 45% of our households pay no taxes, yet politicians are demanding that those who do - must pay more. We face terrorism on the front page of every newspaper and people are losing hope that any change will work.

Is there a role for a Christian in the midst of this tragedy? Does loving my neighbor mean I have an obligation to civic responsibility, to voting, to my country? Or can I simply look away and keep walking? We look at America and the parable of The Good Samaritan this week on The Public Square® .

Is the right to conscience still alive in America? Or did it die at the United States Supreme Court? That's coming up this weekend on The Public Square®.

James Madison called conscience "the most sacred of all property." Which is the theme of a conversation we are having at the Roundtable right now. As we continue to study the news stories coming in from across the nation on the marriage debate we discover a similar theme. Real people with real families and real businesses are getting wiped out by the U.S. Supreme Court's edicts on human sexuality and personhood. The question is: what happens next for people who simply disagree? Tune in today to hear more.
