Rush Limbaugh, Conservative Talk Radio Firebrand, Dead at 70

Rush Limbaugh, bastion of conservative talk radio, has died of cancer at age 70. His wife, Kathryn, made the announcement on Limbaugh's popular talk show. "Losing a loved one is terribly difficult, even more so when that loved one is larger than life," she said. "Rush will forever be the greatest of all time."

Limbaugh is credited with transforming modern radio and helping shape the modern Republican party, per Fox News.

In January 2020, he learned he had Stage 4 lung cancer and shared with listeners that he had a "deeply personal relationship with God." Only days later, first lady Melania Trump bestowed the Presidential Medal of Freedom on Limbaugh after he received the honor during President Donald Trump's State of the Union address.

Why the Church Must Address the War on Gender

Something strange is happening in America today when it comes to gender. Facebook now offers 71 gender categories. Popular actress Ellen Page has announced that she's "transitioning" and now will be living as a man named Elliot Page. Several other high-profile celebrities have announced they are raising their young boys to be girls, or vice versa.

LGBTQ philosophy has not just influenced trendy tech companies and progressive Hollywood, but it has also made its way into our schools, universities and medical care. Some hospitals are ending the practice of listing gender at birth, while social scientists in academia have faced intense backlash if their findings run counter to this new worldview. In some elementary schools, teachers are told if a boy wants to use the girls' restroom, he should be allowed to do that since he "identifies" as a girl.

LGBTQ as a Belief System

I believe the best way to understand the LGBTQ movement is as a belief system. I view a LGBTQ proponent the same way I do a Muslim, Hindu or any other adherent to a religious sect. LGBTQ stands for "Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Questioning." The cornerstone of their doctrine, I believe, was laid down in 1955 by psychologist John Money when he theorized that sex and gender were two distinct concepts.

'I'm There to Speak Prophetically and Walk Away,' Pastor Sam Rodriguez Says About Advising Presidents

Not everyone has the opportunity to speak into the life of a president. Famed evangelist Billy Graham held that role for many years with multiple officeholders. And Pastor Sam Rodriguez, president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, has advised three former presidents: President George W. Bush, President Barack Obama and President Donald Trump. However, he says, he has a unique prophetic connection to this role.

"I'm there to speak prophetically and then walk away," he tells Dr. Steve Greene on a recent episode of the Greenelines podcast on the Charisma Podcast Network. "And that's my story." Rodriguez adds that God has given him three major points to focus on: life, religious liberty and biblical justice.

I advised presidents that I never voted for, by the way. So I'm not here to endorse them or their platform. I'm there to speak prophetically and walk away."
