AUDIO: Who is the Real Saint Nick?

In this special edition of The Dr J Show, we delve into who is the "Fatman" in the red suit behind the fake beard. Saint Nicholas of Myra in Lycia, who lived about seven hundred years ago, was a Christian bishop and a man of God who fasted and sacrificed his life for his flock. He was not fat, and was a fierce defender of Christianity. He even slapped a man in public! He willingly went to a dungeon prison for faith in Jesus Christ. He also saved women from sexual slavery and men from execution. In this commercialized age, we benefit from learning about the REAL Saint Nicholas.

Come hear the true story of the man who became a Saint. A story of hidden gifts, defending faith, and miracles. In this Ruth Institute Special, learn the truth and the history of this great man who inspired the creation of Santa Claus.

St Nicholas' ancient hymn
In truth you were revealed to your flock as a rule of faith,
an image of humility and a teacher of abstinence;
your humility exalted you;
your poverty enriched you.
Hierarch Father Nicholas,
entreat Christ our God
that our souls may be saved.

AUDIO: The UN is Forcing Abortion on Africa, but They Don't Want It

Dr Wahome Ngare is a member of the Kenya Catholic Doctors Association, which blew the whistle in 2014 on a World Health Organization vaccine which was secretly laced with abortifacient and sterilization drugs. Their medical investigation shows that W.H.O. researchers conjugated tetanus toxoid with human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) producing a “birth-control” vaccine.

W.H.O. publications show a long-range purpose to reduce population growth in unstable “less developed countries.” Conjugating TT with hCG causes pregnancy hormones to be attacked by the immune system.

“Birth control must lead ultimately to a cleaner race.” – Planned Parenthood Founder Margaret Sanger
“At the time Roe was decided, there was concern about population growth, and particularly growth in populations that we don’t want to have too many of.” – U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Topics discussed in this Dr J Show include:

  • Kenya does not have a "population problem"
  • the Constitution of Kenya specifically states life begins at conception, and every person has the right to life.
    • Article 26 states abortion is legal if a doctor says the mother's treatment or life or health is in danger. As with Roe v Wade, the word "health" is defined so broadly (depression, stress, etc.) that abortion on demand for any reason can be obtained.
  • If the law is going to consider the right of "choice," both mother & child have this right.
  • Any society that considers itself moral would fight for the person with less power, namely the more vulnerable preborn person.
  • Pro-aborts scare women into believing the lie that abortion is safer than pregnancy. The truth is, maternal mortality is rare; almost zero.
  • In countries with legal abortion, 99% or more are elective, killing healthy babies.
  • NGOs (non-government organizations), often from the U.S., push abortion in foreign countries around the world. They tie compliance with abortion laws with needed funding.
  • "Safe abortion" is an oxymoron.
  • The ideology driving the push for abortion is used to sexualize children, to legalize sodomy and prostitution, and to distribute contraceptives to girls as young as 10 years of age.
  • Over 90% of the Kenyan people do not want abortion or sodomy legalized. NGOs pushing abortion can go against the will of the people by paying corrupt officials.
  • The whole concept of NGOs is foreign interference, including foreign interference in the elections of sovereign countries.
  • For the Sexual Revolution to take hold requires many people to be quiet. All of us must take it very seriously that this is not a fight for one or two people; it is a fight for the survival of the human race. The globalists are everywhere, and people need to stand up against their agenda -- otherwise, we have no humanity left.
  • Practitioners of medicine have to give hope; daily numbers of Wuhan virus infections & deaths do not.
  • There is an agenda going on. Fear is being generated in people. What are we being prepared for?

AUDIO: Landmark Legal Decision! Therapists Can Help Same-Sex Attracted Youth!

Is it legal to restrict licensed individuals from pursuing their client's therapy goals?

Mat Staver is Founder of Liberty Counsel, which defends religious freedom in cases across the nation. He is also Chairman of the National Pro-life Center, Freedom Federation, Salt & Light Council, and the National House of Hope. He serves as Vice President of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, and was Vice President of Liberty University, as well as a former Dean and law professor.

Mat has over 300 published legal opinions. He authored eight scholarly law review publications, and many books and publications. He is a frequent guest on many international and national television and radio programs and has been interviewed for thousands of media sources.

Mat has filed numerous briefs and argued in many federal and state courts, including the U.S. Supreme Court. He has argued two landmark cases before SCOTUS: Madsen v. Women's Health Center, and, McCreary County v. ACLU of Kentucky.

Prior to law school, Mat pastored several churches.

In Otto v. City of Boca Raton, therapist Robert Otto sued the city for the right to talk with clients about their feelings of sexual attraction, the impact of those feelings, and strategies for improving the quality of their lives. The City of Boca Raton had passed an ordinance criminalizing “conversion therapy,” or “reparative therapy,” or, Sexual Orientation Change Efforts.

It is simply not true that sexual orientation is an immutable trait. There is no "gay gene." But if the Sexual Revolutionaries can convince people that gay is like being black, then they can apply anti-discrimination law to sexual behavior.

The scientific fact is that there are numerous ways into an LGBT lifestyle, and there are numerous ways out. The Dr J Show has featured many people who left the "gay" lifestyle, happily.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit agreed with Mat Staver that this particular form of speech must not be banned.

Topics discussed in this episode include:

  • California's "Reproductive FACT Act" made it criminal for counselors to help clients with unwanted same-sex attraction or gender dysphoria.
  • Anti-reparative therapy bans are LGBTQIA+ propaganda to keep hurting people imprisoned in their conflict.
  • Anti-reparative therapy laws are viewpoint-based, where the State determines which views are allowed and which views are criminal.
  • There is no evidence that reparative therapy harms clients.
  • In many cases, the State has admitted they need more research, which only proves they have no evidence to criminalize therapy.
  • the significance of Trump-appointed, originalist/constitutionalist judges
  • conflict of interest among judges in the liberal courts
  • 99.1% of Californians are not allowed corporate worship -- under threat of huge fines and jail time.
  • The State of California has decreed that 99.1% of Christians cannot:
    • worship corporately
    • have a home Bible Study with a pastor
    • have a deacon come pray for them
  • ALL these cases denying religious freedom have in common pro-abortion, pro-sodomy Democrat politicians and judges.
  • There's no evidence that minors are helped longterm by transgender treatments.
  • Many people --including politicians and even judges-- believe the lie that reparative counseling involves torture.
  • Just as the Sexual State doesn't want women in unplanned pregnancies to know they have options, so the Sexual State doesn't want those suffering from unwanted same-sex attractions to know that they have hope of normalcy.
  • Thousands of former "gays" HAVE changed, very happily.
  • The liberal courts created a category limiting free speech for pro-life centers & Christian counselors, and called it "professional speech."
  • The U.S. Supreme Court rejected California's argument that linked reparative therapy ban-reasoning with forcing pro-life centers to advertise abortion because licensed therapists & centers do not have free speech.
