Mark to Speak at World Conference

April 3, 2005

Starting today, Mark heads to Boulder, Colorado to be a panelist for the 57th Annual Conference on World Affairs. This is an international gathering of pundits and artists, scientists and professors, journalists and authors, politicians and CEOs, businessmen and musicians, filmmakers and analysts from around the world who discuss the issues of the day before an audience of approximately 50,000. Other noteworthy political/media participants include Molly Ivins, Charles Krauthammer, and Amy Goodman.
If you are a regular INSIDE SCOOP listener and live in Colorado (or want to make a long drive!), you are strongly urged to attend the conference which is free and open to the public.
If you do not live close to Denver, there will a break with no INSIDE SCOOPs until Sunday, April 10. On that day, Mark will NOT have his regular Sunday Weekly Review but he has been invited to share his experiences at the Conference on Air America that evening (9 pm East.) Mark’s appearance on Air America will be broadcast live right here on
In the meantime, check out the Broadcast Archive, please cast your April podcast vote (only once a month is allowed so get your April vote in early!), and continue to contribute to the weblog.

    “Now, more than ever, the people are responsible for the character of their Congress. If that body be ignorant, reckless and corrupt, it is because the people tolerate ignorance, recklessness, and corruption. If it be intelligent, brave, and pure, it is because the people demand these high qualities to represent them in the national legislature. . . . [I]f the next centennial does not find us a great nation. . . . it will be because those who represent the enterprise, the culture, and the morality of the nation do not aid in controlling the political forces.” — President James A. Garfield

    Churchmouse you should remember who you really are
    Who Are You?
    So who do you think you are,
    a critter born to die,
    a body with a mortal mind,
    a package of emotions,
    noise of collected responses
    from past impressions
    that will pot to zero
    at the precipice of your greatest fear,
    as you stare into the void?
    Or are your mind and body inside
    who you really are,
    a billion fragments of light
    with no boundaries,
    divinity encompassing the ego,
    a conscious bliss that beats the heart
    and breathes life from within,
    A presence that tries to find itself,
    playing hide-and-seek with joy,
    finally discovering peace
    in a deep, still, quiet place,
    where the permanent You resides,
    disembodied, eternal?

    Don’t take Grant’s words -Literally-, Skip. That’s the same mistake Herod, Pilate and (yes) even Jesus’ disciples made. The truth is, we are all born in servitude. Listen closely — don’t you hear the chains rattling?

    No it isn’t just between me and my God. It’s between me and the Reconstructionists’ and Dominionists’ God. Even “democrat” Zell Miller is a Dominionist.
    Take a look at:
    An excerpt from the site:
    Author and educator George Grant was Executive Director of Coral Ridge Ministries for many years. He explains in The Changing of the Guard, Biblical Principles for Political Action:
    Christians have an obligation, a mandate, a commission, a holy responsibility to reclaim the land for Jesus Christ — to have dominion in civil structures, just as in every other aspect of life and godliness.
    But it is dominion we are after. Not just a voice.
    It is dominion we are after. Not just influence.
    It is dominion we are after. Not just equal time.
    It is dominion we are after.
    World conquest. That’s what Christ has commissioned us to accomplish. We must win the world with the power of the Gospel. And we must never settle for anything less… Thus, Christian politics has as its primary intent the conquest of the land — of men, families, institutions, bureaucracies, courts, and governments for the Kingdom of Christ. (pp. 50-51)
