Elon Musk openly criticized George Soros on Twitter, comparing Soros to an X-Men villain. At the same time, the Left tends to condemn anyone who goes after George Soros as an anti-Semitic.
Liz talks about the Left’s tendency to defend George Soros, and shares crime statistics related to the “reformed-minded prosecutors” who are funded by Soros.
First, Liz reacts to Elon Musk’s tweet comparing George Soros to X-Men villain Magneto. She mentions that Musk has said that George Soros hates humanity, and explains how this is not as controversial a statement as people think.
Then, Liz digs into statistics about the impact of progressive district attorneys funded by George Soros.
She notes that the statistics show Soros-backed, “reformed-minded” district attorneys have been ineffective at reducing crime, and that criminals released early with no bail are more likely to re-commit crimes than not.
Liz concludes her discussion of George Soros by saying the aforementioned statistics prove that progressive crime reform policy hurts racial minorities and marginalized communities, rather than improving racial justice as the Left claims.
Finally, Liz ends the show by sharing her thoughts on various controversial topics brought up by her viewers. She talks about child vaccinations, reparations, and cohabitation before marriage, among others.

Happy Thursday, ladies and gentlemen. Welcome to the Liz Wheeler Show. Elon Musk is going after George Soros in perhaps the funniest way imaginable. The Left’s favorite talking point when it comes to George Soros is taking George Soros in all that he is and all that he does, and ignoring his political activism and how he spends his money, and instead accusing anybody who identifies George Soros as a very influential liberal of being anti-Semitic. Why? Because George Soros is Jewish. No, this obviously makes no sense whatsoever because identifying George Soros as an influential, a very influential and very destructive leftist and enabler of leftist is based on his actions. That’s not who he is, that’s what he’s doing. Or it’s not an immutable part of his identity, I suppose it’s who, it’s part of his character, who he is, but it’s not part of his religion.
It’s not part of his ethnic heritage. Nothing like that whatsoever. But the Left wants you to feel that you are a bad person if you criticize George Soros. So Elon Musk criticizes George Soros, and boy oh boy, is the Left going wild. We’re gonna break that down. Plus the Left is trying to distract us from something, right? They’re trying to distract us from one very specific thing that George Soros is doing that is wreaking havoc in our country. And I found some statistics that I wanna share with you about the impact of George Soros, progressive, so-called progressive prosecutors. George Soros calls them reform minded prosecutors, which they very well may be, but what are they trying to reform? What are they trying to transform? We’re gonna talk about these statistics because it gives us a little bit better idea why the Left freaks out whenever we mention the name Soros Plus, I ask you guys on social media what the most controversial topics that you could think of are You guys sent me some wild suggestions. So we’re gonna read through those. We’re gonna talk about the things that, I suppose, polite society isn’t even the right phrase here, because it’s not that these are vulgar topics. It’s not that they’re socially taboo because they’re indelicate really, the regime has told us we’re not allowed to talk about these topics. So what are we gonna do? We are going to talk about them. Let’s get to it.
Okay, before we get into the George Soro stuff, actually I want to explain one of the things that I’m trying to do on our new website, LizWheeler.com. There are certain times on the show when, when my team is sitting around and we’re brainstorming what we’re gonna talk about today, we’re putting together the different elements. That means the videos and the photos and the tweets for the show. We’re talking about the points that we’re going to make as I sit here discussing all these important things with you. And sometimes certain stories don’t make it into the show. Sometimes it’s a matter of, Hey, we don’t have enough time for that. Sometimes a story doesn’t fit in. It’s just too random. It’s too much. A, it’s too difficult to segue from a all the way to Z Sometimes it’s just practical reasons why a story doesn’t fit in.
And then sometimes there are stories that are just so shocking, like I’m talking shocking level. We talk about a lot of heavy stuff on the show, right? Like, I’m fully aware of that. We talk about a lot of things that are disturbing. And in a sense, I think, I think we all have gotten a little desensitized to the shocking stuff that we talk about because we talk about it so frequently. But once in a while, there’s something that really is so disturbing that I just don’t feel quite right about broadcasting it, because I know that there are a lot of people that listen to this show with their children. A lot of people who listen to this while they work out, and they don’t want to get sick to their stomach listening to things they need to listen to. And so, one of the things I’d wanna do on my website is I want to be able to tell you, Hey, here’s a story that you can decide when it’s the right time to go watch this video or go read this story, this report of what happened.
so it’s not quite as surprising as when it happens on the show because you, you know, my philosophy, I don’t wanna ever dumb down this content. I don’t want to be the gatekeeper and withhold graphic things from you like some other commentators do or some other networks do. I’m not about that at all. But I do want you to have the agency, you to have that decision making power to decide, okay, I’m ready to see this. Now I’m gonna go watch this. So for example, today on, if you go to LizWheeler.com, there’s a video that I highly recommend that you watch. I think it’s really important. It’s, it’s difficult to watch. It’s from TikTok. It’s a compilation of three TikTok videos. These are three young people who went through the transgender surgery process. They were men. they quote unquote, transitioned to women, and they’re talking about the repercussions or the aftermath of their surgeries.
Again, it’s very, very graphic and it’s pretty difficult to listen to because you and I know that there’s really nothing that they can do. Nothing that we can do to help the bodies of these, of these young people that were mutilated. But I really, really encourage you to watch it because I mean, man, this is what we’re facing. This is the reality of what we’re facing with this agenda. It’s not just the ideological part, which is really important. It’s also the physical part. So I posted that video on LizWheeler.com. Go over, take a look at it when you are ready, and if you can share it with people who you think it might hit home. Cause this is a pretty emotional wash. LizWheeler.com. Okay, George Soro. So let’s start with the funny part of this story. This, it really cracks me up when Elon Musk, he has the largest Twitter platform in the world.
I know that there are a couple of people who probably have a bigger following, but no one pays more attention to anybody’s tweets on Twitter than we do to Elon Musk’s tweets. He’s the one right now, in a sense. He is like Donald Trump 2.0 in the sense that any little thing, even a smiley face or an eye roll emoji that he sends out, everyone’s got notifications for Elon Musk’s tweets. Everyone’s listening to what he says. Well, he sent out this tweet. We’re gonna show this on the screen here about George Soros. You can see this. And he just says, Soros reminds me of Magni Magni. Now, my control room was kind enough. I’m gonna tell a little story on myself here cuz I deserve it. My control room was kind enough to make sure that I pronounce this name correctly. It’s an X-Men villain.
So most of you probably knew that. But I don’t watch those, I don’t watch those, those movies. I I mean, I don’t really watch a lot of movies, but definitely not those. but he’s a villain in, in this series, and he, Elon Musk compared George Soros to an X-Men villain, which you don’t even have to be a fan of those movies. I think that’s funny. And I don’t even know who this character is. I did Google this character, and of course, the Left immediately comes out and says, oh, this makes Elon Musk anti-Semitic. This is an anti-Jewish slur because apparently this villain in, in the Marvel series is, or has Jewish origin. First of all, I don’t know what that has to do with anything. I don’t think that this villain is supposed to be a villain because he is Jewish.
That’s just part of the backstory of his character. I think that the character, the villain in the, in the series is supposed to be a Holocaust survivor, as is George Soros. again, the Jewishness of the villain doesn’t make him, that’s not the reason that he’s a villain. So I don’t know how it could be anti-Semitic for Elon Musk to compare George Soros. It seems like it’s just, I don’t know, very humorous, very funny comparison. But the Left is freaking out about this. Someone on Twitter said, listen, Elon, and this wasn’t one of the Leftists that was absolutely freaking out on Musk, but said, listen, you should, you should assume that George Soros has good intentions. A villain in, in a comic book series or in the Marvel Universe doesn’t have good intentions. They’re a villain at heart. George Soros has good intentions.
You should assume that. And Musk responded and said this, I’m gonna show this on the screen too. He said, you assume they are good intentions. They are not. He wants to erode the very fabric of civilization. Soros hates humanity. Now you see that little, that little on the screen there. When we showed the tweet, you see that little row of numbers, the analytics underneath the tweet, when we pulled that tweet, it had been viewed over 7.3 million times, 7.3 billion times. That is a lot of people to hear Elon Musk say that George Soros wants to erode humanity, or what is it hates humanity. He wants to erode the fabric of civilization because he hates humanity. This is not actually that controversial of a statement to make. It’s a harsh statement, but it’s not controversial when you’re analyzing somebody else’s actions and the repercussions of their actions.
And it’s so obvious that George Soros does not care about humanity. He would not use his billions of dollars to fund the things that he funds if he wanted what’s best for humanity. And he wouldn’t, he wouldn’t do it with good intentions and continue doing it once he saw once he saw the fruit of his actions, if he indeed cared about humanity. So I think Elon Musk is exactly right here, but this is what I wanted to do today. So I was digging a little bit into this. I was digging a little bit into some numbers and statistics about George Soros and what he’s done with his money, what he’s done with his Open Society’s foundation. Now, open Society’s Foundation. Let’s stop right there for a second. Open Society’s Foundation is a perfect example of what we talked about in the show earlier in the week as it related to congresswoman AOC and her former aid, who is a self-avowed communist, who’s now on the executive committee of the New York Communist Party.
She’s a little, a literal communist boss, and she used to work for AOC. And the point that we made earlier in the week is that, yes, the aid to AOC at the time that she was working for AOC admitted that she was a communist. AOC herself, has never said, oh, I am a communist. I am a Marxist. But the point of that was, well, you don’t have to say that you’re a communist to be a communist. You don’t have to admit that you’re a Marxist to be a Marxist. If you adhere to Marxist ideology, then that’s evidence based on your behavior, based on your policy action or your policy preferences based on your actions, and oftentimes, based on your words as well. And it’s perfectly appropriate to deduce that someone is behaving as a communist, that someone is a Marxist based on the totality of how they behave without them identifying as a Marxist, without them identifying as communists.
And this is true of George Soros. There’s been a lot of accusations over the years that George Soros is this or that, and the nest. He’s a socialist, he’s a communist, he’s a Marxist, but it’s always relegated by the Left. It’s always relegated to the corner. Those accusations, they’re, they’re belittled, they’re demeaned. Anybody who partakes in that analysis and comes to the conclusion that George Soros is, in fact, a Marxist is told that they are an anti-Semitic conspiracy theorist. And so what I wanna do right now is I want to set the record straight. George Soros obviously is a Marxist and Open Society Foundation is the first clue to this, because what does that mean? Open Society foundation. An open society? What is an open society? An open society? If we look at how George Soros defines this, an open society means a society without borders.
It means a nation that is not a nation state, a nation that doesn’t, that doesn’t secure their borders. He’s quite literally calling for our society here in the United States to be open to anybody that wants to come in and out to have this idea that you can just move around from nation to nation and not belong to any space, not belong to any community, not belong to any, any group of people, not belong to any country. And that that is actually an idea, A Marxist idea that was articulated by Antonio Gramsci. Antonio Gramsci was the cultural Marxist who took economic, the economic Marxism of Karl Marx and Frederick Engels, and said, well, wait a second, in order to spark a Marxist revolution, it’s not gonna happen when the working class just gets mad at the ruling class. And thus, a revolution begins because the working class is too comfortable in the in the cultural norms of the ruling class.
And so, in order to spark a Marxist revolution, we have to first attack culture. We have to first dismantle the cultural norms on which the working class relies. And one of the cultural norms, one of these civil institutions that Grimsey identifies, is a nation state, is the idea of secured borders. So it doesn’t take a Marxist scholar. It takes a very basic understanding of Marxist and a basic understanding of the history of Marxism, how it’s evolving to see that, just the phrase open societies, which is the hallmark the hallmark institution or platform through which George Soros commits his political activism, that his platform is entirely based on one of Antonio Grimey’s pillars of society that Grimsey wanted to tear down in order to spark a Marxist revolution. Right? So that’s the first thing. So George Soros doesn’t have to admit that he’s a Marxist, that he embraces a communist ideology in order for us to accurately identify him as a Marxist and as a communist.
His open society’s foundation, just the name alone, suggests to us it’s a dead giveaway, what his ideology is. But one of the predominant things that he’s been doing in our country, the predominant impact that he’s had in our country is the progressive, so-called progressive prosecutors. I hate the word progressive. I don’t like to use it to identify anything on the Left, because progress is a word that has a generally positive connotation. And nothing about the Leftist agenda is well, has any kind of positive connotation or has any kind of positive impact. It’s not progress, it’s not achievement. The only thing it might be doing is progressing past a free and equal society. But for better or for worse, progressive prosecutors is how a lot of people understand these, these district attorneys that George Soros put a ton of funding behind, continues to put a ton of funding behind.
And these progressive prosecutors shouldn’t even call themselves prosecutors because they’re not actually in office to prosecute crime. They are, as George Soros identified in a Wall Street Journal article in which he bragged about funding these prosecutors, right? He called them reform-minded prosecutors. Now, of course, that’s a mischaracterization. It doesn’t tell the whole story. These prosecutors, we’ve seen them from in San Francisco, I mean, in San Francisco, Chesa Boudin the son of domestic terrorists who was elected as district attorney there actually got recalled. He got kicked out of office. Alvin Bragg, district attorney in Manhattan, who is going after both Donald Trump on a phony charge, and after Daniel Penny, the US Marine, who defended himself and oth and himself and others on the New York subway against Jordan Neely, who was threatening to kill people. These are progressive prosecutors. These are, quote unquote, reform-minded prosecutors. These are people who don’t believe in our criminal justice system, who don’t believe that criminals should go to jail, who don’t believe in incarceration, who don’t believe in bail, who don’t believe in a inau nation as it’s built a nation of laws where there’s consequences for breaking criminal statutes, right?
We see the consequences of this in cities across the country as crime rates are surging, as violent criminals are perhaps arrested, but then either let out with no bail or, you know, plead down to very small charges, serve a very short amount of time, and then commit other crimes once they’re released. And so this is what I did. I dug a little bit into the data of what the impact of these quote unquote reform minded prosecutors. What has actually happened. I mean, we can see these sort of anecdotal cases like Donald Trump or Daniel Penny. We saw what happened in San Francisco with Chesa Boudin, but what are the actual numbers? What are our city’s suffering when it comes to the situation that we’re in now with crime compared to what it was before Soros funded? Prosecutors took over these positions.
And again, again, it’s not just that George Soros wants to destroy the nation state wants to destroy our borders through this euphemism he calls open society. Destroying our criminal justice system is also one of the ways that Antonio Grimsey suggested that we destroy our civil society. So George Soros is maybe just really clever. Maybe he actually is the super villain that Elon Musk suggest him to be, because what he’s doing is he is targeting these aspects of our, of our society, of our country. And if he is successful, our country actually will collapse because without borders or without a criminal justice system, we won’t be able to survive. We, our civilization will fall apart, it will crumble. And George Soros is bragging about funding this. So this is from the Heritage Foundation. They write as Raphael Manuel of the Manhattan Institute, noted in his recent book, criminal Injustice, what the Push for Decarceration and de Policing gets wrong and who it hurts most.
While blacks constitute 13.4% of the population, they made up more than 53% of the nation’s homicide victims in 2020. So think about this for a second. Back up from the statistic. Black people in our country made up more than half of homicide victims in our country. And when violent criminals commit a violent crime and are arrested, and then they’re let out on no bail, no cash bail, or they are given a light sentence and allowed back into the community, what happens while they often commit crimes again, they often harm other people. They often, especially when it’s a violent, a violent criminal, if they’ve killed someone, they often kill someone again, it’s called recidivism. That is, that is the reality that criminals, once they’ve committed a crime, even if they’re convicted, even if they serve time, it’s not very reformative. Incarceration is not a reformative process.
There have been efforts to try to make it reformative, but it hasn’t been very successful. And when criminals are let out early, they tend to commit more crimes. And so who stands to who to be hurt the most? If the, if 53% of homicide victims in our country are black people and murderers are let out early, well then the logical conclusion is that the people that are most likely to be murdered by the criminals who are let out of prison early are going to be black people since they’re the ones most likely to be murdered in the first place.
This is from, this is I suppose a secondary point to the Marxist ideology behind the policies that George Soros is supporting. But it also completely debunks the Left. When the Left says, oh, these reformed minded prosecutors are actually pursuing racial justice. These reform minded prosecutors are trying to solve the over-incarceration problem. These reform minded prosecutors are trying to create equity in our prison system so that there’s not a disparity between the percentage of black people who or the percentage of black people in our population compared to the percentage of black people incarcerated. Because they say there’s a disparity. More black people, percentage wise compared to white people are incarcerated. And they claim that just that in and of itself constitutes an injustice instead of analyzing the behavior, the crimes that were committed by the people who are incarcerated and the crimes have nothing to do with skin color.
They have everything to do with behavior. So this is a secondary point that debunks the Left’s narrative that reformed minded prosecutors serve the Left or serve minorities or serve any kind of racial justice. It they don’t, they don’t, in fact, racial minorities and quote unquote marginalized communities are the ones who are most vulnerable to crime, and therefore they’re the ones who are most vulnerable for more crime being committed when violent criminals are let out early by reform minded prosecutors. Right? Heritage goes on to say, in fact, the US Sentencing Commission in June released a report on a study that found that the odds of recidivism were lower for federal offenders sentenced to more than 60 months incarceration compared to a matched group of offenders receiving shorter sentences. The odds of recidivism were approximately 29% lower for federal offenders sentenced to more than 120 months incarceration.
It’s funny that George Soros and the Left in these quote unquote reform-minded prosecutors, never mentioned this statistic. It would be interesting to see in a completely unbiased poll when a group or if a group of Democrats and a group of Republicans were presented with this fact, presented with the fact that violent criminals who serve longer prison sentences are almost 30% less likely to commit crimes again, whether Democrats and Republicans, because this is both Democrats and Republicans too, right? It’s not, it’s not just Democrats, whether they would be more prone to saying, wait a second, maybe we shouldn’t be focusing on quote unquote over incarceration. Maybe we should be focusing on analyzing what length prison sentence makes an offender less likely to be a repeat offender upon release. But that’s of course not what we’re, that’s of course not what we’re presented with by the Left.
So bail specifically, this has been an issue. This no cash bail specifically has gained traction in cities across our country. I dug into statistics on this as well, and it’s pretty interesting when you see the numbers right before your face, it doesn’t exactly match what George Soros and the Left are telling us. Okay? So Heritage continues by saying, two law professors analyze a Cook County Illinois bail reform study, which supposedly showed that lax bail laws do not impact the crime rates and found contrary to the study’s findings, that the bail reform changes in Cook County appear to have led to a substantial increase in crimes committed by pretrial releases in Cook County. Their analysis also found that the number of release defendants charged with committing new crimes increased by 45%. Worse yet, the number of pretrial releases charged with committing new violent crimes increased by an estimated 33%.
So these statistics, I think are chilling, first of all. I mean, this is human lives we’re dealing with. This is not just not just an abstract analysis. It’s not just numbers. This means that more people in our country are being harmed. More people are the victims of crime because of George Soros funded quote unquote reformed minded prosecutors. So when Elon Musk calls, calls George Soros a a Marvel, Marvel super villain, he’s right. There’s not good intentions that exist in George Soros political activism. It’s not anti-Semitic to identify the influence that George Soros has over politics when it’s his money that he’s specifically donating to political activism in order to beget these circumstances in our country. He’s paying for the destruction of our country. If that doesn’t make him a super villain, I don’t know what does. But the Left doesn’t want you to see these statistics.
The Left doesn’t want you to understand that it’s not just an anecdotal evidence from Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, you know, going after Trump or going after Daniel Penny, that it’s not just San Francisco’s chesa Boudin. That that crazy son of domestic terrorists that San Francisco fortunately recalled and kicked out of office. These aren’t isolated incidents. This is the exact intention that George Soros had when he funded these candidates. The Left doesn’t want you to see this. So they hide behind this veil of, oh, let’s call them anti-Semitic. Let’s tell them that they hate Jewish people. Let’s tell them that they’re being bigoted racist. Let’s try to associate them with some of the most evil ideology that world has ever known. And then maybe they won’t notice that their friends and family, their community are more likely to be hurt and victimized and killed because of the political activism funded by George Soros.
It’s grotesque. And you gotta love Elon Musk for just calling their bluff and sending out this tweet. Okay, so on social media, I ask you guys what the most controversial topics you could think of. Were, and you guys sent me some doozies, some doozies. Let’s go through a couple of them, shall we? Some of you requested anonymity. You wanted to talk about these topics without, well, without having your name splashed out there. and so I’ll try to, I’ll, I’ll try to be discreet with some of your names. I’ll just use maybe a first name. The first question is from Julie. Julie says, childhood vaccinations. Well, Julie, that is indeed jumping into one of the most controversial topics on the planet. I actually think childhood vaccines are, is a more hot button topic even than say abortion. I don’t know, ace topic that gets people’s emotions up that gets people in a lather more than vaccines.
And I’m talking about people on both sides of the vaccine issue, both the kind of militant pro vaxxers and the folks known as anti-vaxxers. this is one of the most highly, highly fraught topics. And listen, here’s what I’ll say. I’ve given a lot of thought to how much it’s appropriate for me to share about the decisions that my husband and I made or are making for our daughter when it comes to the c d c recommended childhood immunization schedule. Part of me, because I feel very strongly about, about this issue, as does every other parent whatever your position on it is. And in a sense, I would like to share every little detail of the process that I use to discern what to do, what information I use to substantiate my decisions. At the same time, it’s not just my political decision, it’s not just my decision, medical decision.
I do wanna talk about this, but I will, I I wanna be very cognizant of being respectful of my daughter because it can, I mean, it can be her choice to talk about those types of things if and when she would ever want to do that, right? I don’t want to, I don’t wanna betray her privacy when she’s just, when she’s just a tiny baby. I will say that I’m reading a book right now that I highly recommend that you read. It’s super good. it’s called Dissolving Illusions, and it’s a history of disease, communicable disease, specifically in the United States and in the UK over the 19th century. So in the 18 hundreds, specifically in the mid 18 hundreds, the late 18 hundreds. And it’s really interesting because childhood disease or diseases that killed children during that time period are some of the diseases that we vaccinate against now.
And it’s really interesting to see how different aspects of our society have changed, not withstanding vaccination, so hygiene for example, and sewage systems and nutrition and child labor laws and all different kinds of things that impact people’s health, their vulnerability to diseases or our ability to treat diseases when you actually contract diseases. So it’s a really interesting, it’s called dissolving illusions because we kind of have this idea in our society now that the diseases that we face now, or that we could face now are exactly the same. That this a one-to-one comparison of these same diseases when we, when we face them as a society in the 18 hundreds in the 19th century. And that’s not true. It’s not, it’s not even kind of true. And it’s really eye-opening to dissolve those illusions that that exist around the diseases that we so often vaccinate for.
I’ve also openly told the story. I have no problem telling the story. I openly told the story about what happened to my husband and I the day that my daughter was born, how I did not do the Hep B vaccine on the day that she was born, because why I don’t have Hep B, and she’s not, therefore at risk of it. and they sent in the hospital, sent in a neonatologist to basically bully us and to try to do this. And I was like, oh, why does she need it? I don’t have, I don’t have Hep B. And they tell me, well, it’s in case you, you know, get in a car wreck on the way home and your baby needs a blood transfusion and maybe that blood is contaminated with Hep B. And man, man, for the rest of my life, I will wish that I had you know, that my brains weren’t quite as scrambled as they are right after you give birth.
And that I had been like, oh, how many times does that happen in the United States? But you know, you always think of the funniest and the wittiest comebacks after a situation is over. so childhood vaccines, this is what I will say. I know, I know the c d has a recommended schedule. My philosophy on life is to be skeptical of everything, question everything. Demand substantiation, think independently. Do not defer to the so-called experts just because they claim the title of the experts. There’s plenty of information out there so that you can decide what’s best for you and your family. And you know what? If someone calls you an anti-vaxxer for thinking for yourself, if your pediatrician gaslights, you fire that pediatrician, find one who won’t. And I mean, listen, we’re conservatives, we’d be called, we’ve been called every name in the book when it comes to politics, it really shouldn’t bother us that much.
If, if when we question the medical industry, if we are also called all kinds of names, really let it roll off your back. Okay? Next question is from conservative Mama who says, sola scriptura, sola scriptura. For anybody who doesn’t know, this is the Protestant dogma on theology, meaning a reliance only on the, without any outside interpretation, without any authority for the interpretation of the Bible. This is in contrast to the Catholic view, which says, okay, the Bible is the word of God. It’s inherent, but in order to properly interpret it, we have tradition, which means the Bible wasn’t after all compiled for three, 400 years after, after Jesus was on earth. It was compiled and interpreted by the magisterium of the church, the church that Christ handed down to his apostles. The apostolic tradition still exists in the Catholic church.
So that’s, that’s the little contrast here. It is a very controversial topic. My my opinion on solo scriptura is that it’s actually ironically unbiblical. Cuz if you are relying only on the Bible, the Bible, where does the Bible say that you should interpret the Bible? Solo scriptura, just, just the Bible. The Bible never says that. In fact, the only, the only time the Bible mentions solo scriptura is to condemn it, is to say that solo scriptura is incorrect. That that’s not the way to interpret the Bible. So I’m Catholic, you guys know this. So of course that’s, that’s my position aligns with the Catholic church. But even if I weren’t Catholic, I could never embrace solo scriptura because it’s literally unbiblical. It’s also, by the way Protestants who claim to adhere to solo scriptura don’t actually, they don’t, they don’t just adhere to what’s in the Bible.
And the best example of this is the Trinity. The Bible never actually says Trinity. The Bible never actually describes the Trinity. This is something we derive from the Bible. But moreover, we de we derive it from the teaching authority of the church, from the magisterium of the church. The magisterium is basically just the oral tradition of the church, right? So when Jesus was on earth, and then his apostles, his apostles were supposed to teach his gospel, his apostles ordained others after them to continue to teach his gospel. And that’s what happened for generations before the Bible was put together. So that that tradition, that oral tradition of protecting the gospel, protecting the word of God was passed person to person through this apostolic tradition before the Bible even was put together. So the Trinity is a good example of something that Protestants believe in, but it’s not articulated in the Bible.
It’s something that was passed down through the tradition, the Catholic tradition, the apostolic tradition. So I’m a thumbs down on solo scriptura. Okay? Our next one here is from Mod Eru who says Reparations. Oh, reparations. We had a whole show on reparations I think two weeks ago. So if you haven’t, if you haven’t listened to that show, go on back and look that up. You can just go to Apple Podcast and look up Liz Wheeler reparations, or same thing on YouTube. Reparations are socialism, reparations are redistribution of wealth, and they’re actually emotionally ex they’re emotionally exploiting you to justify redistribution of wealth because this is what the Democrats know. They know if they, if they look at the American public, and this is a good commentary on the America on the American public still, if they, if they present an idea to general population of our country and say, listen, we as the government think that we should be allowed to go on your phone and go into your bank account app and take some of your money and transfer it to somebody else who doesn’t work, who hasn’t sacrificed the way that you have, just because we think that that’s fair, the American public’s gonna rebel.
The American public’s gonna be like, I don’t think so. Get out of my bank account. But the, this is what the Left wants to do. And so the Left says, okay, how do we package this in a way that’s going to make the people that we’re stealing from feel guilty telling us to stop stealing from them? And so they bring in what’s one of the most divisive topics in our nation races, right? This is a topic where we have achieved so much in our country. We’ve overcome so much that people are very sensitive to the idea of race because they want to make sure that we are continuing in the proper direction, that we are fulfilling our founder’s vision of a nation that is colorblind, that a nation where every person is equal under the law, regardless of any immutable characteristic, right? And so the Left says, okay, let’s tell white people that they’ll be racist if they tell us as government officials, as politicians, to stop stealing from our bank account and giving it to other people.
Let’s pretend that they owe black people money because of something that happened 200 years ago, 300 years ago in our country. And so this is what they do. They, they trick people. Reparations is are completely unjust. It’s just socialism packaged in a way that is attempting to make it difficult for you to say, I don’t think so. I don’t think so. That is wrong. Reparations are ridiculous. No white person today is ever enslaved, a black person, and no black person today has ever been enslaved by a white person. This the crime of slavery in our country. The evil of slavery happened generations ago, generations ago. And there is no moral justification possible to tell a white person today that they owe money to a black person just on the basis of race. Do not fall for it. Okay, what is next here? Oh, these are some really controversial topics guys. Diaz Biaz says, controversial topic, is gay a sin?
Well, as I mentioned a couple minutes ago, I am a practicing Catholic. I adhere to the doctrine of the Catholic church, the doctrine of the Catholic church. The biblical doctrine of the Catholic church teaches that sex belongs in marriage, and that marriage is between one man and one woman. Therefore, anything outside the confines of marriage between one man and one woman, any sexual activity outside of those confines is a sin that includes homosexuality. Is it a sin to have same sex attraction? No. As long as you’re not indulging in lustful thoughts, as long as you’re not taking part in homosexual behavior, homosexual sexual activity. But is homosexuality or same sex sexual activity? A sin in my opinion? Well, not just my opinion in my belief system, yes, it is. That’s the, been the worldview of our civilization for a long time, and that’s certainly the Judeo-Christian worldview.
And you’re right, it’s a very controversial topic. even among conservatives. Even the Republican party has a hard time with this one. Hard time admitting this now, because they don’t want to, they don’t wanna turn off liberals. Okay, Ethan Ley says, cohabitation reluctance to marry. This actually is a very controversial topic, and again, the best kind of controversial topics. You guys are, these are good ones. The best kind of controversial topic is something that’s controversial, not just along political lines, but that’s controversial culturally. And this one’s true. This is probably, probably skews, yes, probably more liberal couple couples live together before marriage than conservative couples. But a lot of Republicans do this as well. Most a lot of young people do this. It’s probably more age stratified than it is even politically stratified. And it’s not a good idea. It’s not a good idea for multiple reasons primarily because it leads to higher divorce rates.
If you cohabitate before marriage, then you are more likely to have your marriage end. You are more likely to face divorce. And whether or not you’re a religious person, that’s not good. It’s not good for you, it’s not good for your spouse, it’s not good for any potential children that you may have. That leads divorce leads to the breakdown of our society. Divorce leads to so many societal ills. And if you can avoid that, if you can avoid the brokenness and the heartache and the negative impact on society that divorce has, then you should hold off living together until you’re married. This, of course, doesn’t even take into account the moral component. The moral component is that if you’re cohabitating you are most likely engaging in premarital sex, which again, is not the proper context for sex. But yeah, it’s a very controversial topic.
You should not be living together before marriage. Okay, there are, I have a whole list here still of controversial questions. We are running out of time here, so we’re gonna do some more questions.
