The Columbia Basin Badger Club's program about discrimination and religious beliefs may have entertained, but it gained no traction on truth. Focusing only on anti-discrimination laws and on the Founding Fathers with their supposed intent of the First Amendment could only end as a stalemate.
Such discussions are futile until we the people recognize that the U.S. Constitution is only the highest law in the land, nothing more, and that there is a higher, unamendable and irrevocable supreme authority that transcends our humanity. There is no merit in debating the ever-shifting situational ethics in our culture unless all participants agree that the God of the Bible is who he says he is. He is the sole and final authority on these matters, not us.
Beth Barrett Bloom argued on the law of man. Pastor David Parker tried unsuccessfully to trump with the highest law of the land, when he should have called upon the higher standard. There was no traction gained by either. Truth does not need the validation of mere man. God reminds in Job that man is puny while God is omnipotent. If God is myth, as some suppose, we are lost unto ourselves.
