On Monday I was asked if I would be willing to appear on The Kelly File with Megyn Kelly. I was asked to be on the Friday night show which would be an election critique and recap featuring pundits and regular Americans. I usually hate appearing on any sort of panel discussion. For evidence of that, one need look no further than my last appearance on Sean Hannity’s show (but we don’t talk about that anymore).
However, doing the Kelly File was enjoyable. It’s very seldom that I go on television and I feel like there actually is iron sharpening iron. However, that’s exactly what happened. It’s usually punditry and sound bites. I don’t actually recall what was said on the air and what wasn’t, as Megyn encouraged all of us to stay engaged through the breaks and that’s exactly what happened.
She apologized to me for not getting to the issue of faith during our discussion, but I understood. However, I do hope there are more conversations about the role and importance of faith as we get closer to the election, while attacks on Christianity increase.
It is an important topic.
There are organized individuals in the country that want to rip up every cross by its roots and throw it in a wood pile for burning, be they secularists, atheists or radical Islamists. I would like to see this crucial matter given more consideration, not just in the political discourse, but in the hearts of everyone who considers themselves a Christian or a person of faith. In fact, it’s not merely an important topic. It’s a topic with grave implications.
This is the first story I saw, when I turned on my Computer this morning…
“ISIS kidnaps more Christians. When will we put an end to this madness?”
As the chairman of In God We Trust, I will continue to fight, not just for the right of Christians to exist in America, but to remind people that the bounty of America comes from our creator.
