Defending the Faith in the Public Square Lecture Series:

 Lecture #1

What the First Amendment Really Says About
Freedom of Religion
 ( And Various Other Things )

For over three generations, activist judges, liberal media members, and agenda-driven public schools have sought to ingrain a false and inaccurate doctrine in the minds of America’s youth. Their aim– to persuade kids and even adults that the Constitution makes it “illegal” to pray in Jesus’ Name at public events, or to discuss Christianity or pray in the public schools, or to display the Ten Commandments on courthouse walls or manger scenes in public parks. All this, they claim, somehow “violates separation of Church and State.”

In reality, nothing could be further from the truth.

In this one-hour lecture, Don Brown will break down what the First Amendment really says about Freedom of Religion and Freedom of Speech, and will effectively de-bunk the falsehoods put forth by the enemies of the Gospel.

 Lecture #2

What the Second Amendment Really Says About
The Right to Bear Arms
 ( And Various Other Things )

Perhaps no Constitutional provision and no fundamental right has been more misunderstood than the fundamental Right to Bear Arms as set forth in the Second Amendment. Gun control advocates spew forth inflammatory rhetoric about “assault rifles” and some cities, like Chicago, have sought to ban guns altogether. Whenever there is an unfortunate incident like Columbine or Newtown, the press and liberal opponents of the Second Amendment go on another crusade to ban firearms, all the while conveniently ignoring uncontroverted evidence that more Americans die from stabbings by knives than by rifles. Gun abolitionists falsely claim that gun control legislation will reduce crime.

In reality, despite the false propaganda from gun abolitionists that the Second Amendment only exists to allow for hunting and individual sport-shooting, the fact is that the Second Amendment was adopted by the founders as the ultimate check-and-balance against government tyranny. This is the real reason lovers of big government would like it repealed. This lecture will examine the background of the Second Amendment based upon the Swiss Model, and will examine case studies proving that “gun control” legislation not only fails to reduce violent crime rates, but actually causes more crime.

 Lecture #3

What the Fourth Amendment Really Says About
The Right to Be Secure and Unreasonable Search and Seizure
 ( And Various Other Things )

In the disastrous wake of Hurricane Katrina in 2005, by order of the New Orleans Chief of Police, police officers and National Guardsmen barged into people’s homes, without search warrants, using excessive force, and in many instances seized citizens’ firearms without permission, and without just compensation for the property seized. Eight years later, just days after the Boston Marathon Bombing, hundreds of Boston Police, dressed in the battle fatigue of storm troopers, carrying military-style assault rifles, and driving armored military vehicles, illegally barged into the homes of dozens of innocent Boston residents, without search warrants, forcing residents out of their homes with brute force, all the while conducting patently illegal and unconstitutional searches.

In reality, the Fourth Amendment of the United States Constitution absolutely prohibits such brutal and violent conduct by police and by the government officials against citizens. However, because we have failed to teach the Bill of Rights, and especially the Fourth Amendment, to generations of students, police often feel emboldened to engage in such illegal tactics. As Jefferson said, “the price of freedom is eternal vigilance.” In this one-hour lecture, Don Brown will present a primer on the Fourth Amendment, its content, its context, and the proper response when out-of-control governmental agents attempt to breach it.

 Lecture #4

The Unmasked Historical Truth About
Islam and Sharia Law
 ( And Various Other Things )

Prior to the September 11, 2001 attacks, most Americans probably never gave a second thought about Islam. After those attacks, the U.S. government went to painstaking measures to portray Islam as a religion of Peace. Indeed, the Bush administration emphasized tolerance for Islam and made it clear that the War on Terror was not a War on Islam. Later, the Obama administration went even further, with President Obama quoting verses from the Quran, bowing to the King of Saudi Arabia – something no American President has ever done – and now, according to Egypt’s long-standing Rose El-Youssef magazine, has invited Islamic Brotherhood Operatives into the White House. Meanwhile, Islamic terror struck America at Fort Hood, in Boston, and struck the British in London with the brutal murder of a British soldier on the streets in 2013.

In light of all this, is Islam really a religion of Peace?

In this lecture, Don will examine not only the historically violent roots of Islam, but also the violent roots of Muhammed himself, the founder of the religion, who personally ordered the murder and execution of non-believers in present day Saudi Arabia. This is in stark contrast to the earthly life of Jesus, who not only preached peace, but also practiced it. Additionally, the lecture will briefly survey Sharia Law, the brutal Islamic legal system which some are attempting to install in the United States today.

 Lecture #5

A Survey of the Fundamental Rights
in the U.S. Bill of Rights
 ( And Various Other Things )

In the first Ten Amendments of the Constitution, known as the “Bill of Rights,” the founders set forth absolute rights held by individuals to protect citizens against the powers of an out-of-control federal government. But because the Bill of Rights have not been taught adequately in the public school, and not even in most homeschools and Christian schools, most students have a poor grasp or understanding of them.

For Example, some people, when thinking of the First Amendment, think of Freedom of Speech. Others think of Freedom of Religion. Still others think of a Free press. Actually, all responses are right. But neither the First Amendment nor any other amendments have been taught in proper context.

The fact is that five fundamental rights are contained in the First Amendment alone, including the three mentioned above. Another eight fundamental rights are found in the Fifth Amendment, including the Right against Self-incrimination and the Right to Due Process. Ten more fundamental rights are found in the Sixth Amendment, including the Right to Trial by Jury and the Right to a Speedy Trial, among others.

While each and every one of these fundamental rights could be subject to a lecture in and of itself, because of a deficiency in teaching the Bill of Rights, Don will in this lecture speak on the Bill of Rights generally, with an emphasis on a number of the fundamental rights contained therein, and where those rights can be found.

 Lecture #6

Fiction as a Weapon in the Culture Wars
How Hollywood has used Fiction to Undermine Societal Values
 ( And How to Write Back and Fight Back )

In many circles, academic and otherwise, greater emphasis is placed on nonfiction, such as biographies, historical accounts, and works of self-help as the body of literature which is most relevant to society and is most relevant as an agent of change in the culture.

In reality, however, great works of fiction, such as Harriet Beecher Stowe’s Uncle Tom’s Cabin and Solzhenitsyn’s One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich, had considerable more influence on society than contemporary works of nonfiction in their day.

As a nationally best-selling author, Don Brown uses this lecture as an opportunity to discuss the power of fiction as an agent of positive change in our society, and fields your student’s questions about the mechanics of novel-writing and the publishing process.

 Lecture #7

Exposing the Real Truth about Common Core

A look at the money-grabbing elitist origins of Common Core, and an examination of the incontrovertible evidence proving that the new “standards” of Common Core will dumb down the population, and serve as a propagandist tool for advancing the dual federal agendas of radical environmentalism and inappropriate sexuality.
