Welcome to the Rescuing Jesus podcast page!Here you will find brief descriptions and links to my two podcast series: "Atheists for Jesus: Rescuing Jesus from the Bible" and "Rescuing Jesus (and America) from the Religious Right." As the names imply, the first series will deal primarily with Biblical subjects (and will be identified with episode numbers) and the latter with religion as it interacts with political issues (and the 2010 episodes will be identified by "RJ 2.0" followed by a brief description of the topic). Both of these podcast series can also be found on iTunes by searching the Store for: "Schei". Older episodes of "Rescuing Jesus (and America) from the Religious Right" that were done in 2006 can be accessed by clicking HERE
and also on iTunes. These podcast were done during the George W. Bush administration and while some of the information is, therefore, somewhat dated, I do believe that they contain useful information that is still valid today. (I plan on producing updated versions of these podcasts in the near future.) I hope that you will find the information in these podcasts to be of interest and of value to you. Please feel free to contact me with your feedback.

Numerous people and organizations are claiming that Sharia Law is trying to establish itself in the United States. In this podcast, I examine three examples used by these folks in an effort to back up their claims. (1) A court case in New Jersey; (2) Arrests at an Islamic Festival in Dearborn; and (3) A college students guide dog.
Here are links to some of the material referenced in this podcast:

Frank Schaeffer is the son of the late Francis Schaeffer ("Francis Schaeffer, who helped politicize the Evangelicals into the Religious Right through his incendiary books such as A Christian Manifesto (1980) wherein he called for the takeover of America in the name of Christ if, need be, by force if all else failed"). Frank helped his father to organize Evangelicals into what is known as the Religious Right.
Frank's recent article about Palin should be a must read:
