You Shall Not Bake Cake And SCOTUS Packing (Illinois Family Spotlight #261)

This week, Illinois Family Spotlight focuses on current issues regarding religious freedom and the U.S. judicial system. To start the podcast, Monte Larrick interviews well-known Colorado baker and cake artist, Jack Phillips and general counsel for Alliance Defending Freedom, Kristen Waggoner. Phillips describes the persecution and targeting he has endured at the hands of the LGBT faction in his ongoing battle for religious freedom within the context of his business.

“Black Families Matter, Part 2” (Illinois Family Spotlight #212)

Spotlight revisits the recent Black Families Matter rally that was held in south suburban Flossmoor, right next door to the Planned Parenthood abortion center. Latasha Fields delivers a passionate, well-reasoned, and biblically based call for Christian parents to stop advocating for public education and instead take personal responsibility for their children’s instruction. She also addresses the destructive agenda and influence of groups such as Black Lives Matter at School and the New York Times 1619 Project’s K-12 Black History Curriculum in government schools – and their intent to undermine and dismantle the Black nuclear family.… Continue Reading

“If Democrats Get In, Say Goodbye to America the Beautiful and Hello to America the Ugly” (Illinois Family Spotlight #208)

PODCAST: Bitter, Shortsighted Never-Trumpers Harming America

Those who refuse to vote for President Trump because they find his tweets and temperament off-putting are small-minded, myopic, self-indulgent traitors to America. They are indulging their antipathy for Trump and their personal vindictiveness at the expense of America’s future.

There is a loathsome campaign afoot by Never-Trumpers/RINOs/Establishment Republicans (aka the D.C. swamp) to bequeath to the next generation a country of far more oppression, far less liberty, far greater educational indoctrination, a darker economic future, and more threats domestic and foreign.… Continue Reading

Ignorance of the Bible and Our History is Plaguing Us (Illinois Family Spotlight #203)

The BLM riots continue: the attention of the raging rioters has shifted to attacking the statues of historical Americans. Both the alleged reason and the downright historical ignorance of these rioters are addressed in this episode of Spotlight. Latasha Fields, the leader of the Christian Home Educators Support System, speaks about the disproportionate impact of demonstrably bad democratic policies in communities with higher pigmentation, and why the church generally must step up and help that part of Christ’s Body which is suffering.… Continue Reading

“Jezebel’s War With You” (Illinois Family Spotlight #196)

According to Dr. Michael L. Brown, whether you realize it or not, war is raging in our nation. This war is not with a flesh and blood opponent, but rather with what he terms the “spirit of Jezebel” – demonic forces that are at work in individuals today, just as those same spirits were at work in individuals in biblical times. In his address to attendees of IFI’s 2020 Worldview Conference, Dr. Brown holds fast to the authority of Scripture and encourages believers to suit up in the full armor of God to fight against the advances of our depraved, satanic foe.… Continue Reading

“It’s Frankenstein-y and We’re Doing This to Children!” (Illinois Family Spotlight #172)

It is imperative to know the truth in order to refute lies. Illinois Family Institute’s cultural affairs writer, Laurie Higgins, is well-acquainted with the truth regarding the lies of “trans” ideology. At a recent forum hosted by Concerned Citizens for American in Rockford, Laurie states that biological sex and scientific facts matter, despite what the proponents of this false, destructive ideology would have us believe.

In her presentation, Laurie clearly defines the terms biological sex, gender, and gender identity.… Continue Reading

“We Can Do More in This Fight Against Abortion” (Illinois Family Spotlight #171)

Pastor Cory Musgrave joined Monte Larrick on this edition of Illinois Family Spotlight to discuss his invocation on the Illinois House floor earlier this year.

State Rep. Darren Bailey invited Pastor Musgrave to open the Illinois House in prayer, and Pastor Musgrave took the opportunity to ask God to forgive us for the recent passage of a radical abortion expansion bill that will result in even more innocent bloodshed.

He also answers questions about why he is running for Illinois State Representative in the 109th district (current State Rep.… Continue Reading
