Movie mogul, Harvey Weinstein, found his way into Hollywood’s moral buzzsaw this last week, and we can’t figure out what moral code they are operating off of. Weinstein’s ways have been known in Hollywood for years, and given enough public pressure, apparently anybody will grow a moral backbone, including Hollywood. Correction in the podcast: The original piece we referenced was published in the New Yorker, not the New York Times. Also, the writer of the piece, Ronan Farrow, worked for NBC, not ABC.
Scott Yenor, Professor of Political Science at Boise State University, also joins us to discuss his recent encounter with faux diversity at BSU. Scott has written a number of pieces linking modern feminism to the transgender slippery slope, and apparently this logic is the “seed that, when nourished and allowed to grow, becomes the kind of hatred and intolerance that we saw on Display in Charlottesville.” Here are a couple of Scott’s books to check out:
- Family Politics: The Idea of Marriage in Modern Political Thought
- David Hume’s Humanity: The Philosophy of Common Life and Its Limits (Recovering Political Philosophy)

On behalf of the Host!
Cross Politic (Christ over politics) mixes the taboo formula of faith, culture, and politics in order to bring the clarity of the gospel into muddle-American. We are a community of Christians who desire to see the Lordship of Christ in every corner of our culture, reigning over every politician, and changing every individual for our good and His glory.
