Welcome to Dead Reckoning Radio! On Expand Your Horizons, Hadley’s going to explore the concepts of maternity leave. In the first segment of our show we discuss a new study that was released, “The Socio-economic Contribution of Religion to American Society: An Empirical Analysis,” and it’s results our astounding but are they good enough to convince America that religion is a good thing? Well “no” says another new report from the Federal Civil Rights Commission that we look at in the second segment of our show. According to that one, we’re all bigots.

Show Notes:
Welcome to Dead Reckoning Radio, week of September 20, 2016. We are Live on Facebook! I’m your host, Jay Friesen. With the radiant new mother, Hadley Heath and across the sometimes crotchety old dad, Dr. Brian G. Mattson. DR Radio is where the three of us sitting around this old door-turned-table and intelligently discuss those critical cultural moments from a distinctly Christian perspective.
Thank you also for joining us on our 5-star rated podcast.
Tonight’s show is stellar. On Expand Your Horizons, Hadley’s going to explore the concepts of maternity leave. In the first segment, a new study was released: “The Socio-economic Contribution of Religion to American Society: An Empirical Analysis” and it’s results our astounding but are they good enough to convince America that religion is a good thing? Well “no” says another new study from the Federal Civil Rights Commission we’ll look at in the second segment of our show. I guess we’re all bigots.
Throughout the show we’ll take a couple breaks to hear from our sponsor Alliance Defending Freedom, defending your right to freely live out your faith. You can visit them online and get the latest news at www.adflegal.org.
We’ll also have our customary games of wit and whimsy. One in honor of the Emmy’s which just went down this past week. But first!
Quick Takes

* Terror on US Soil – A 28-year-old radicalized Muslim set off bombs in New Jersey and New York. Another went on a stabbing rampage in a shopping mall in St. Cloud, Minnesota. Does it still seem that the powers-that-be seems oblivious to how ordinary Americans react? When the initial reaction is immediately, “Let’s not jump to conclusions” or to downplay the terrorism aspect, is the government getting dangerously low on credibility?

* A Government With Credibility? The nation of Hungary is under fire from some of its neighbors for being, well, Islamophobic and Xenophobic. This week the country became the first country to officially prioritize Christians over Muslim refugees and migrants. Thoughts?
