Canadian National Prayer Breakfast

Jun 15, 2013

canadianmountiesvsatomicinvaders2osTo see my recent speech at the Canadian National Prayer Breakfast in Ottawa, click here! I reference William Shatner, Rich Little, and the phrase “Hey, Hoser!” in the first few minutes of my presentation. A good time was had by all. The speech begins about 25 mins into the video…  Hope you enjoy it, eh?

And after Ottawa I flew over to Toronto and shot three episodes of 100 Huntley Street to talk about my 7Men book, revealing that the real “Secret of their Greatness” was their common Canadian heritage.

The Faith of Jackie Robinson

Jackie Robinson

A NEW FILM about Jackie Robinson, titled 42—the number he wore during his historic career—tells the triumphant story of how the Civil Rights icon integrated professional baseball by playing for the Brooklyn Dodgers. But there’s a mysterious hole at the center of this otherwise worthy film.

The man who chose Robinson for his role, and masterminded the whole affair, was Dodgers General Manager Branch Rickey, played by Harrison Ford. In their initial meeting, the cigar-chomping Rickey makes it clear that whoever will be the first African American in major league baseball will be viciously attacked, verbally and physically. So Rickey famously says he’s looking for a man “with guts enough not to fight back.” He needs someone who will resist the temptation to retaliate. Robinson agrees to go along with it.

Speaking on Religious Liberty… w/Ben Carson!

Mar 16, 2013

EricBenCpac1EricBenCpac2I had the honor of speaking about Religious Freedom at CPAC today, followed by a GREAT Q&A with Dr. Ben Carson! To watch the video, click here! I recommend using the full screen option and turning up the sound. I enter the stage at 6:30 into the video and speak for about 14 mins. Then Dr. Carson speaks for about 25 mins.  After that — at 45:00 — there is my Q&A with him. You have to watch that last part!  For the full text of my speech, click here. For just the video of my 14 minutes, click here. Religious Freedom is hugely important and we’re not hearing anything about it.

If you want to know what you can do, please help spread the word by sharing this speech. Please sign and share the Manhattan Declaration. Please watch Os Guinness’s speech at SITC by clicking here. And finally, if you get into a discussion about Same-Sex Marriage, ask about how it will affect Religious Liberty. That is the real issue and no one is discussing it.

Yesterday at 9 a.m. I testified on Capitol Hill at a Congressional Hearing titled “Anti-Semitism: A Growing Threat to All Faiths.”  Click here for the video. It’s in Part One. My five-min. prepared remarks are at 51:00 and my extemporaneous remarks on Religious Freedom and the lack of resolve in the West to deal with these issues, etc., are at 1:33 and 1:49 respectively.  What an honor to testify on this important subject!

The National Prayer Breakfast Interview!

Feb 08, 2013

12B_02876This year’s Nat’l Prayer Breakfast was simply amazing. I got to meet Olympic Gold Medalist Gabby Douglas and chat with Dr. Ben Carson.  And I got to hear Andrea Boccelli sing LIVE.  It was transcendent.  For some photos, click here.  Of course last year’s event, where I spoke, was fun too!  Actually, the amazing KLo of NRO recently interviewed me about that event and and my book about it, titled No Pressure, Mr. President: Real Faith in a Time of Crisis. I always have a TON OF FUN talking to KLo as you’ll see by CLICKING HERE!
