Listening In

WORLD News Group, publisher of WORLD magazine and producer of WORLD Radio’s The World and Everything in It, has a new audio program called Listening In

Listening In, hosted by Warren Cole Smith, is a conversational program featuring newsmakers and thought leaders that explores the depths of some of the most interesting topics of our day

“Our goal is to explore topics as thoughtfully as possible,” said WORLD Radio Executive Producer Nick Eicher. “It’s more like NPR’s Fresh Air or public television’s Charlie Rose, but with an objective Christian perspective.”

Listening In airs each Friday. The program is available to radio stations via FTP download. For technical details, contact: Jonathan Bailie at jbailie@wng.org.

A conversation concerning Christians and the courts

Our conversation today involves recent Christians in religious liberty court cases. Mike Adams, a professor at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, recently won a court case against UNC-W.  He had sued the university, charging the school had denied him a promotion because of his Christian and conservative beliefs.  That case took eight years to complete, and it’s still possible the university could appeal. 

Another recent court case involves Jack Phillips.  Phillips is the proprietor of Masterpiece Cake Shop in the Lakewood suburb of Denver, Colorado.  Phillips, who has been in business for more than two decades, recently refused to bake a wedding cake for a same-sex wedding.  The homosexual men filed a complaint against him, and this little bake shop has become one of the front lines in the fight for religious liberty. 

 Our conversation begins today with University of North Carolina-Wilmington professor Dr. Mike Adams, and later we will talk with Jack Phillips and his attorney Nicole Martin.
