Many listeners have commented on their great appreciation for our "classroom sessions" with Dr. W.B. Allen and the questions he is answering for all of us. But we all have to admit that the insights he is sharing require serious reflection to rightly understand.

The title of today's broadcast is a trick question, in essence a mental trap. The use of the question "Does sex make us human?" is intended to help every American become aware that the United States Supreme Court believes this premise and is making rulings based upon it.

For the purpose of defining law, the Supreme Court is now operating upon the premise that sexuality defines humanity. States and local communities are acting upon those edicts and school children are now at ground zero in a civil war over sexual identity.

This issue will impact civil and religious liberties for every family, church, school, corporation and community for a generation to come. And it is happening right before our eyes. Tune in today to this very important discussion on The Public Square®.

As recently as 10 years ago, the marketing craze was summed up in the word: FREE. The idea was, all of us, from our parent's basements, to a rural church pulpit to a blossoming business could become known, we could get our message out on somebody else's online platform.
