Description

We all need to be lectured sometimes. Family Research Council's new weekly-ish podcast features selected talks by top thinkers from the archives of the FRC Speaker Series. Our podcast podium takes on tough issues like religious liberty, life, marriage, family, sexuality, public policy, and the culture -- all from a biblical worldview. Listen with us to the lecture, then stick around afterward as we help you digest the content.

In 2017 and 2018 the U.S. men’s and women’s soccer teams required players to wear an LGBT rainbow on the national U.S.A. jersey. A Christian player declined to wear the jersey and thus did not play. Using soccer as a case study, Dr. Jennifer Bryson, the founder of Let All Play, will discuss the religious freedom issues at stake in the management of U.S. and international sports. She will also examine the manner in which the politicization of sports threatens America's civic fabric. Jennifer S. Bryson is the founder of Let All Play, a sports advocacy project. She is author of the 2019 report “Let All Play: Yes to Soccer, No to Politics” about the use of political symbols, such as the LGBT rainbow, on uniforms in international soccer. She wrote the current international CitizenGO petition to FIFA against use of political symbols in soccer. She worked previously at the Religious Freedom Institute in Washington, D.C. She has a B.A. from Stanford, an M.A. and a Ph.D. from Yale, and she is currently studying international sports law.
After witnessing the collapse of two young marriages, the preparation for which they had played a part, Ryan and Mary-Rose Verret founded Witness to Love, a marriage preparation renewal ministry dedicated to integrating engaged couples fully into the life of their church community through mentorship and ongoing church involvement. Managing Editor for Publications Dan Hart joins Lecture Me! to discuss how the Verret’s Witness to Love program can build community and decrease divorce.
Currently, an average of 21 military veterans are taking their lives each day. FRC's Deputy Director of State and Local Affairs Matt Carpenter joins the podcast to discuss Richard Glickstein's lecture as he shares the compelling evidence that proves faith-based solutions reduce suicides, speed the recovery of PTSD, and build resiliency.
How can the conservative movement help restore America’s inner cities? FRC’s Coalitions Senior Research Fellow Chris Gacek joins the podcast to discuss Robert L. Woodson, Sr.’s lecture on how the conservative movement must identify, recognize, and support agents of individual and community uplift and provide the resources, expertise, and funding that can strengthen and expand their transformative work.
Director of Christian Ethics and Worldview David Closson joins Lecture Me! to discuss author Nancy Pearcey's book Love Thy Body. Pearcey talks about how the sexual revolution led to the mainstream personhood argument used by bioethicists and sexual fluidity used by left.
