Kim asks the question, “Why are some organizations not taking a position on Prop 119: LEAP, Learning Enrichment and Academic Progress Program?” The answer: Politics. The Denver Post surprisingly endorses a “NO” vote on LEAP because there is no clarity on who the pre-selected vendors would be. Helen Raleigh, author of Backlash and contributing author to The Federalist, takes a break from politics and talks from the heart as she explains that October 15th is International Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day. Helen states, “The loss of our son felt like an earthquake, and it shook the world of our entire family.” Helen tells the story of her loss of Lucas and Allie. It is Helen’s Christian faith that keeps her hopeful. Theresa Shelton, Jefferson County school board candidate, explains why she is running. Student academic achievement has dropped tremendously. We must get politics out of the classroom and emphasize the core subjects like reading, writing, math, science, history, civics and critical thinking skills. Mask wearing should be decided by the student and his/her parents. Financial transparency is a must. Theresa explains that parents must stay active in their child’s educational life.
Guest Father Andre, Founder and President of the Apostolate of Our Lady of Hope/St. Rakfa Mission of Hope and Mercy, joins Kim to discuss his mission. Father Andre was born in war-torn Lebanon and now lives in America. His platform is to promote faith, family, peace, hope and mercy, and culture of life. Widening his audience, Father Andre begins a new radio show this Sunday, October 17th, at 9am on KLZ 560 AM and KLZ 100.7 FM. America’s Judeo-Christian value system prepares us best for darkness. We are free to choose and embrace our religion. Global persecution of Christians is now coming to America, and we can see its escalation. We must stand up against persecution. If American freedom is silenced then the entire world will be swept in darkness. In Father’s words, “Religious Liberty, in the Bible and the American Constitution, is America’s greatest gift to a world tormented by hate and by religious persecution.”
