Did you know that the ship that carried the first atomic bomb was blown up by the Japanese? This week on The Public Square® we hear from a U.S. Marine veteran from World War II. Mr. Ed Harrell lived quite an amazing story in the South Pacific in 1945. He was one of the Marines who stood guard over the atomic bomb while it was being transported. He also spent a harrowing five days shipwrecked and presumed lost at sea.

On this Memorial Day weekend, we take a few moments to consider the generation that just one lifetime ago was fighting and bleeding and dying so that we could live free today.

Today we see a very different side of the political Left and their allies among the media elites. What changed and will the new intolerance on the Left spiral into a higher threat to liberty across America? Will disagreeing with the Left soon cost you a job, your religious liberty or land you in jail?  Join in the conversation 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.

It's a setup for the next story, the Celebration of Liberty live on The Public Square®, and then as the dust settles we face the future of life in America under the rulings of this deeply troubled Supreme Court. All three weeks are connected. So join us as the story unfolds this week on The Public Square®.

Something bad has happened in America. Something that sounds like a time warp from the Jim Crow era and sadly it has landed on the doorstep of the Christian Church. This week the team at The Public Square® goes where few have been willing—we discuss the story of the Wilson family in Crystal Springs, Mississippi, the couple that a Baptist church refused to marry—because of the color of their skin. Please join us as we prayerfully seek Biblical answers together this week on The Public Square®.
