528-538Anthony Bradley, visiting professor of theology at The King's College in New York ( and a research fellow at the Acton Institute (  He holds a B.S. in biological sciences from Clemson, an M.Div. from Covenant, and a Ph.D. from Westminster.  From 2005-2009, he ran the Francis A. Schaeffer Institute at Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis.  His dissertation explores the intersection of black liberation theology and economics, and he spends most of his time researching hip hop and youth, race in America, and the modern international forms of social injustice, slavery, and oppression.  Today we talk about his latest book Liberating Black Theology: The Bible and the Black Experience in America.  

Here's the brief description of Liberating Black Theology from Crossway:

When the beliefs of Barack Obama's former pastor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, assumed the spotlight during the 2008 presidential campaign, the influence of black liberation theology became hotly debated not just within theological circles but across cultural lines. How many of today's African-American congregations-and how many Americans in general-have been shaped by its view of blacks as perpetual victims of white oppression?

In this interdisciplinary, biblical critique of the black experience in America, Anthony Bradley introduces audiences to black liberation theology and its spiritual and social impact. He starts with James Cone's proposition that the "victim" mind-set is inherent within black consciousness. Bradley then explores how such biblical misinterpretation has historically hindered black churches in addressing the diverse issues of their communities and prevented adherents from experiencing the freedoms of the gospel. Yet Liberating Black Theology does more than consider the ramifications of this belief system; it suggests an alternate approach to the black experience that can truly liberate all Christ-followers.

558-608 (:53) Bart Stupak (D-Michigan), with George Stephanopoulos on Good Morning America this morning (3/4/2010), says he has a dozen pro-life democrats who will vote against any health care bill that federally funds abortion.

(1:21) Nancy Pelosi said this morning (3/4/2010) that she will not have her effort to pass the health care bill turn into a debate on abortion.

• ABC News (3/4/2010) Could Issue of Abortion Derail Health Care Bill?

• Reuters (3/4/2010) UPDATE 2-US Democrats would kill healthcare over abortion.

• Tony Perkins, FRC (3/4/2010) Washington Update:  Stupak: He Brings Good Things to Life.

Standing up for what's right sometimes means standing alone. And no one knows that better than Congressman Bart Stupak (D-Mich.). Despite angry calls to his office and outrage from the leadership of his own party, the Michigan Democrat refuses to give up on his language to ban taxpayer-funded abortion in the final health care bill. "You fight for a principle you've believed in your whole life," Rep. Stupak says. "[You don't] fold up the tent." He knows his values are unpopular with the Democratic leadership, but he's used to it. When he ran for Congress in 1992, his party's political consultants refused to work with him because they didn't believe a Democrat could win on a pro-life platform. On ABC's "Good Morning America" earlier today, the man standing between the unborn and a powerful abortion lobby showed that he's ready to prove his critics wrong--again.

Rep. Stupak: [T]he bill that they are using as a vehicle is the Senate bill. If you go to page 2069 through page 2078, you would find in there the federal government would directly subsidize abortions ... [W]e're not going to vote for this bill with that kind of language in there. The president says no federal funding for abortion. I have eight pieces of legislation we currently have in federal law that say no public funding for abortion. [He can] take any one of these eight, insert the language, and we'll be happy... If there's a will, there's a way. [Saying you can't do it under reconciliation rules] is just an excuse they're giving. Look, give us our language. Let's keep current law: no public funding for abortion...

Stephanopoulos: Let me be clear here. If the president doesn't change the language, if your language is not accepted, you and your 11 colleagues who voted 'yes' the last time will vote 'no' this time. Does that mean you're prepared to take responsibility for bringing down this whole bill?

Rep. Stupak: Yes, we're prepared to take responsibility... I want to see health care. But we're not going to bypass some principles and beliefs that we feel strongly about.

"Before, when we talked about pro-life Democrats," Rep. Stupak told the New York Times, "you'd get a snicker and a laugh. We were just always overlooked. We're not overlooked anymore." Nor should they be. This is a powerful coalition, led by a principled leader, worthy of America's respect.

• Fox News (3/3/2010) Ex-Palestinian Spy Talks About Evils of Islam, Hamas' Brutalities.

NEW YORK  —  Mosab Hassan Yousef, who helped Israel's security forces kill and arrest members of the Islamic militant group Hamas, is probably marked for death.  He should be keeping silent. But he's got a story to tell, one he delivers in his new book published this week, "Son of Hamas."

"To be honest with you, being killed is not the worst thing that can happen," he said Wednesday in an interview with The Associated Press. "If they want to do kill me ... let them do it, and they will be responsible for my blood."

In his memoir, Yousef, the 32-year-old son of a Hamas founder, claims he was one of the Shin Bet security agency's best assets and was dubbed The Green Prince, a reference to his Hamas pedigree and the Islamists' signature green color.
