"THE BRODY FILE," RICK

SANTORUM STOPS BY TO TALK

ABOUT THE PERILS OF GAY

MARRIAGE, AS THE TRAIN SEEMS

TO BE LEAVING THE STATION.

IF YOU WANT TO CHANGE

WHAT MARRIAGE IS, IF YOU SAY

MARRIAGE IS ABOUT LOVE, THEN

ANYBODY CAN GET MARRIED TO

ANYBODY.

I MEAN, ANY TWO PEOPLE --

ANY THREE OR FOUR PEOPLE.

IT DOESN'T MATTER.

David: ALSO, MARK

MARCO RUBIO PUTS HIS

RESIDENTIAL ASPIRATIONS ON

THE LINE, AS HE LEADS THE

WAY ON A CONTROVERSIAL

IMMIGRATION BILL.

IN NO WAY WILL HAVING

DONE THIS THE WRONG WAY BE A

REWARD, IN COMPARISON TO THE

PEOPLE WHO ARE WAITING TO

COME HERE LEGALLY OR THE

ONES WHO HAVE COME HERE

LEGALLY IN THE PAST.

David: AND POWERFUL

WORDS FROM PASTOR JONATHAN

CAHN AS WE HEAD TO THE BETH

ISRAEL WORSHIP CENTER IN NEW

JERSEY.

YOU ARE A CHILD OF

ISRAEL.

AND THAT MEANS YOU MUST ALSO

KEEP AS YOUR BIGGEST

TREASURE THE PRESENCE OF

GOD.

David: POLITICS AND

JESUS, BOTH ON DISPLAY AND

THE NEXT 30 MINUTES.

"THE BRODY FILE" IS NEXT.

*

David: AND WELCOME

BACK, EVERYBODY, TO "THE

BRODY FILE."

WE'RE GLAD YOU ARE WITH US.

WE BEGIN THIS WEEK WITH AN

INTERVIEW WITH RICK

SANTORUM, BUT IT DOES START

ON A SOMBER NOTE.

HIS NEPHEW, BILLY, JUST 27

YEARS OLD, DIED RECENTLY.

BILLY HAD A CONDITION THAT

LEFT HIM WITH BURNS OVER

HALF OF HIS BODY.

IT IS A SAD STORY.

AND SOMETHING THAT RICK

SANTORUM DISCUSSED WITH US

WHEN WE SPOKE TO HIM

RECENTLY AT THE C-PAC

CONSERVATIVE CONFERENCE.

AND WE ALSO TALKED TO HIM

ABOUT THE GAY MARRIAGE

DEBATE IN THIS COUNTRY.

HERE IS SOME OF THAT

INTERVIEW.

MODERN MEDICINE HAD TAKEN

CARE OF THE PAIN.

IT WAS PAINFUL TO THOSE OF

US WHO WERE LOSING HIM.

BUT AT THE SAME TIME, OF THE

PAIN, IT WAS BEARABLE

BECAUSE THERE WAS HOPE.

THERE IS HOPE OF NEW LIFE IN

OUR LORD AND SAVIOR.

AND THAT MADE A HORRIBLE

SITUATION ONE THAT IS

INCREDIBLY BITTER, BUT IN

SOME DEGREES SWEET.

AND KNOWING THAT BILLY IS IN

A BETTER PLACE AND HE IS NO

LONGER IN PAIN, AND HE IS

WALKING, WHICH HE COULDN'T

DO ANYMORE.

AND HE'S WITH OUR LORD.

VICTOR FRANCO, WHO SURVIVED

AUSCHWITZ WROTE THAT ANYBODY

CAN BEAR -- IF THERE IS A

STRONG ENOUGH WHY, THAT

PEOPLE CAN BEAR ANYHOW.

IN OTHER WORDS, IF YOU HAVE

A STRONG ENOUGH REASON -- I

TALKED ABOUT MY WIFE IN

CHILDBIRTH.

HORRIBLE PAIN, BUT SHE WAS

ABLE TO BEAR IT.

WHY?

BECAUSE LIFE WAS AT THE

OTHER END.

AND HERE IN AMERICA, THE

OTHER SIDE JUST WANTS TO

MINIMIZE PAIN.

IN AN EXCHANGE FOR THAT,

THEY WANT TO CHANGE WHO WE

ARE.

THEY WANT TO CHANGE THE WHY

OF AMERICA.

AND THEY HAVE TO CHANGE THE

WHY IN ORDER TO LESSEN THE

PAIN BECAUSE THE WHY IS

GOVERNMENT IS GOING TO COME

IN AND TAKE CARE OF

EVERYTHING.

David: HOW CONCERNED

ARE YOU, THAT WHEN YOU SEE

THE 18 TO 34-YEAR-OLD

DEMOGRAPHICS, AND THE

PERCENTAGES OF PEOPLE WHO

SAY THEY SUPPORT SAME-SEX

MARRIAGE, THAT THE TRAIN MAY

BE LEAVING THE STATION, AND

THERE IS NOT MUCH PEOPLE

THINK -- THINK THEY CAN DO

ABOUT IT.

WHAT I'VE ALWAYS FOUND,

AND I'VE TRAVELLED TO MANY A

COLLEGE AND UNIVERSITIES,

SOME OF THE MOST LIBERAL

CAMPUSES IN AMERICA, WHERE

THE FONT OF THIS MOVEMENT

IS.

WHAT I FOUND IS THAT SHINING

LIGHT AND SHINING TRUTH HAS

A VERY, VERY STRONG EFFECT.

I WENT TO YALE UNIVERSITY

ABOUT A YEAR AGO, EXCUSE ME,

SIX MONTHS AGO.

AND I SPOKE TO THE YALE

POLITICAL UNION, WHICH IS A

DECADES-OLD DEBATING SOCIETY

THAT HAS BEEN AROUND YALE

FOR 100 OR SO YEARS.

AND THEY HAVE REGULAR EVENTS

THERE.

AND I WAS ASKED TO GO THERE

AND SPEAK ON A DEBATE TOPIC,

SO IT IS A RESOLVE.

IT IS A RESOLVE TOPIC.

AMERICAN GOVERNMENT IS

DESTROYING THE FAMILY.

AND THEY INVITED ME.

AND EVERYONE KNOWS MY

POSITION ON THE FAMILY AND

ON THESE GREAT MORAL

ISSUES.

2,000 KIDS SHOWED UP.

THE LARGEST CROWD IN THE

HISTORY OF THE YALE

POLITICAL UNION.

AND THEY DIDN'T -- ACCORDING

TO WHAT I'VE HEARD

AFTERWARDS, THE RESPONSE WAS

REMARKABLE.

IN FACT, THE RESPONSE THAT

NIGHT WAS REMARKABLE.

PEOPLE COMING UP TO ME

SAYING, I NEVER REALLY

THOUGHT ABOUT THAT.

NO ONE HAS REALLY SAT DOWN

AND LAID OUT THE TRUTH ABOUT

WHAT THE CONSEQUENCES ARE OF

CHANGING A FOUNDATIONAL

INSTITUTION.

SO I JUST THINK WE HAVE TO

STAND BY THE TRUTH.

THAT IT IS NATURE.

THE IDEA THAT TWO PEOPLE WHO

ARE NOT A MAN AND A WOMAN

CAN GET MARRIED IS AGAINST

NATURE.

IT'S JUST SIMPLY NOT TRUE.

IT IS NOT TRADITIONAL.

IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH

TRADITION.

IT HAS EVERYTHING TO DO WITH

WHAT NATURE DICTATES.

IT HAS EVERYTHING TO DO WITH

WHAT IS GOOD FOR SOCIETY.

MARRIAGE IS ABOUT A BOND, A

FIRM, SOLID BOND OF A MAN

AND A WOMAN TO PROVIDE A

FOUNDATION UPON WHICH TO

RAISE THE NEXT GENERATION OF

AMERICANS.

THAT'S MARRIAGE.

AND NO OTHER MARRIAGE

FORMULATION CAN DO THAT.

IT IS IMPOSSIBLE.

David: THAT IS RICK

SANTORUM ON "THE BRODY

FILE."

WE DO EXPECT HIM TO RUN FOR

PRESIDENT AGAIN IN 2016.

AND SPEAKING OF 2016, TIME

FOR A LITTLE BRODY FILE

PRESIDENTIAL UPDATE.

*

David: WELL, HOW ABOUT

MARCO RUBIO.

HE'LL PROBABLY BE THE

FRONT-RUNNER IF HE DECIDES

TO THROW HIS HAT INTO THE

RING.

BETTER HOPE CONSERVATIVES

DON'T TURN ON HIM.

IS HE STICKING HIS NECK OUT

ON THE LINE ON THIS NEW

IMMIGRATION BILL, THAT WILL

EVENTUALLY PROVIDE A PATH

FOR CITIZENSHIP FOR ILLEGAL

IMMIGRANTS.

HEAR HOW HE IS PITCHING THE

PLAN.

WHY ISN'T IT PANTAMONT TO

AMNESTY?

FIRST OF ALL, AMNESTY IS

THE FORGIVENESS OF

SOMETHING.

THERE WILL BE CONSEQUENCES

FOR HAVING VIOLATED THE

LAW.

BUT THE TYPE OF CONSEQUENCES

THAT ENSURE THERE IS NO

INCENTIVE TO DO IT THIS WAY

AGAIN.

HERE IS MY SECOND POINT: IF

YOU'RE WAITING TO COME

LEGALLY TO THE UNITED STATES

NOW, NO ONE WHO HAS DONE IT

THE WRONG WAY WILL GET IT

BEFORE YOU.

IT WILL BE CHEAPER, FASTER,

AND LESS BUREAUCRATIC IF

YOU'RE DOING IT THE RIGHT

WAY.

David: ANOTHER GUY WHO

IS EXPECTED TO RUN IS

SENATOR RAND PAUL.

WE KNOW ABOUT HIM HERE ON

"THE BRODY FILE" BECAUSE WE

DID A WHOLE SHOW ABOUT HIM.

HE SPOKE TO STUDENTS AT

HOWARD UNIVERSITY.

IT IS AN HISTORICALLY BLACK

COLLEGE, WHERE HE TRIED TO

SELL HIS IDEA OF FREEDOM AND

PROSPERITY.

FOLKS, AT SOME POINT DURING

THE SPEECH, IT DIDN'T GO

OVER VERY WELL.

THE REPUBLICAN PARTY'S

HISTORY IS RICH AND CHOCK

FULL OF EMANCIPATION.

REPUBLICANS STILL PRIDE THE

SENSE OF JUSTICE THAT M.L.K.

SPOKE OF WHEN HE SAID THAT

AN UNJUST LAW IS ANY LAW

THAT A MAJORITY ENFORCES ON

A MINORITY BUT DOES NOT MAKE

BINDING UPON ITSELF.

[APPLAUSE]

YOU KNOW, I WASN'T SURE

IF MY SPEECH WOULD BE

ENTERTAINING, BUT NOW YOU'VE

HAD SOME ENTERTAINMENT.

A LOT OF THE THINGS M.L.K.

TALKED ABOUT WERE RACE, BUT

REALLY WHAT HE TALKED ABOUT

WHEN HE TALKED ABOUT WHAT

WAS A JUST LAW GOES BEYOND

RACE.

SO LISTEN TO THIS AGAIN.

HE SAID THAT AN UNJUST

LAW -- THIS IS A GOOD WAY TO

LOOK THE ANY LAW -- AN

UNJUST LAW IS ANY LAW THAT A

MAJORITY, NOT JUST A RACIAL

MAJORITY -- ANY MAJORITY

ENFORCES ON A MINORITY BUT

DOES NOT MAKE BINDING ON

THEMSELVES.

IT MEANS ANY LAW THAT IS NOT

UNIVERSALLY APPLIED, ANY LAW

THAT APPLIES JUST TO BANKERS

IS NOT RACIST, BUT WOULD BE

UNJUST.

ANY LAW THAT APPLIES JUST TO

ANY PARTICULAR GROUP IS

UNJUST.

HE WAS REFERRING TO RACE,

BUT HE SAID SOMETHING ABOUT

UNJUSTNESS THAT APPLIES TO

ALL.

REPUBLICANS HAVE NEVER

STOPPED BELIEVING THAT

MINORITIES, WHETHER THEY

DERIVED FROM THE COLOR OF

YOUR SKIN OR THE SHADE OF

YOUR IDEOLOGY SHOULD WARRANT

EQUAL PROTECTION.

MY QUESTION IS, I BELIEVE

WE MUST FIRST DEFINE WHICH

REPUBLICAN PARTY.

ARE WE DISCUSSING THE

REPUBLICAN PARTY POST-19th

CENTURY?

ABRAHAM LINCOLN REPUBLICAN

PARTY?

OR POST-1968 REPUBLICAN

PARTY, RICHARD NIXON AND

RONALD REAGAN.

MY QUESTION FOR YOU IS:

WHICH ONE DO YOU IDENTIFY

WITH?

[APPLAUSE]

I THINK THAT'S A GREAT

QUESTION.

AND THAT HITS THE NAIL ON

THE HEAD EXACTLY AS TO WHAT

OUR OBSTACLES ARE.

BECAUSE PEOPLE, INCLUDING

THOSE WHO MAY HAVE JUST

CLAPPED, PERCEIVE THEM AS

BEING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT

PARTIES.

YOU DON'T OBJECT TO THE

PARTY OF EMANCIPATION, AND

THE VOTING RIGHTS, AND ALL

OF THAT.

THE ARGUMENT I AM TRYING TO

MAKE IS WE HAVEN'T CHANGED.

WE DON'T TALK ABOUT IT.

I'M EITHER GOING TO CONVINCE

YOU OR NOT, BUT MY ARGUMENT

IS THERE ARE SOME OF US WHO

HAVEN'T CHANGED, WHO ARE

STILL PART OF THE PARTY YOU

LIKE, BUT THERE ARE PART OF

US WHO TRULY BELIEVE THAT

REAGAN IS PART OF THAT.

WE DON'T SEE AN ABRUPT

DIFFERENCE.

WE SEE HORRIBLE RACISM THAT

HAPPENED IN THE '30s,

'40s, '50s, IT WAS ALL

DEMOCRATS.

IT WASN'T REPUBLICANS.

DID SOME OF THEM SWITCH OVER

AND BECOME REPUBLICANS,

YES.

I THINK IT IS A VERY GOOD

THING HAY CAME HERE TO SPEAK

IN THE FIRST PLACE, THAT HE

WAS BRAVE, BECAUSE HE

OBVIOUSLY MET WITH A LITTLE

BIT OF OPPOSITION.

AND I'M VERY HAPPY THAT IT

SEEMS THAT THE REPUBLICAN

PARTY, THROUGH RAND PAUL, IS

MAKING A STEP TO

BIPARTISANSHIP AND REACHING

OUT TO THIS YOUNGER

GENERATION.

I APPRECIATE THE FACT HE

DID NOT CHANGE HIS

POSITIONS.

OF COURSE, WE WEREN'T GOING

TO AGREE WITH A LOT OF HIS

POINTS THAT HE MADE.

I THOUGHT THERE WAS SOME

CONFUSION ABOUT THE CURRENT

STATE OF THE REPUBLICAN

PARTY AND THE PAST OF THE

REPUBLICAN PARTY.

HE SEEMED TO LEAVE OUT THE

FACT THAT A LOT OF PEOPLE

CROSSED TO THE REPUBLICAN

PARTY.

THE SAME PEOPLE HE WAS

VILIFYING IN THE 1960s.

David: THAT DIDN'T

NECESSARILY GO OVER TOO WELL

WITH MANY OF THE STUDENTS,

BUT YOU'VE GOT TO GIVE RAND

PAUL CREDIT FOR TRYING.

THERE WERE PLENTY OTHER

REPUBLICANS WHO WON'T EVEN

GO TO HOWARD UNIVERSITY TO

MAKE THE ARGUMENT.

SO KUDOS TO RAND PAUL.

WHEN WE COME BACK, HAPPY

BIRTHDAY TO OBAMACARE.

OY-VEY.

WHERE ARE WE THREE YEARS

AFTER IT BECAME LAW?

David: AND WELCOME

BACK TO "THE BRODY FILE."

GRAB THE EXCEDRIN BECAUSE

GUESS WHAT, IT IS THE

THREE-YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF

OBAMACARE.

CONSERVATIVES WOULD RATHER

BLOW THE NEW LAW AWAY,

RATHER THAN BLOWING OUT THE

BIRTHDAY CANDLES ON THAT NEW

LAW.

*

David: JENNY AND

THE "B" BLOCK IS BACK THIS

WEEK TO DISCUSS OBAMACARE,

AND WHERE WE ARE THREE YEARS

LATER.

JENNY?

DAVID, GRAB THE EXCEDRIN

AND YOUR CHECKBOOK, OH, AND

A LITTLE -- WELL, OKAY,

MAYBE A LOT OF PATIENCE

WOULDN'T HURT EITHER.

THREE YEARS AN LATER,

OBAMACARE ISN'T LIVING UP TO

ITS PROMISES.

IT'S SUPPOSED TO CREATE

JOBS, PROVIDE HEALTH

INSURANCE FOR ALL AMERICANS,

AND SAVE MONEY SPENT BY BOTH

THE GOVERNMENT AND

INDIVIDUALS ON HEALTH CARE.

INSTEAD, THE AFFORDABLE CARE

ACT FOR A LOT OF AMERICANS

HAS BECOME A MAJOR SOURCE OF

HEARTBURN.

THIS IS LEGISLATION THAT

WAS 2500 PAGES LONG, AND NOW

25,000 PAGES OF

LEGISLATION.

Reporter: THAT'S 17,500

PAGES OF REGULATIONS WRITTEN

BY BUREAUCRATS ON TOP OF AN

ALREADY COMPLEX PIECE OF

LEGISLATION WRITTEN BY

CONGRESS.

AND FOR EMPLOYERS WHO HAVE

TO UNDERSTAND THE

NITTY-GRITTY TO MAKE

DECISIONS FOR THEIR

BUSINESSES, THE TASK IS

DAUNTING.

FOR EXAMPLE, THERE IS THE

EMPLOYER MANDATE THAT

BUSINESSES WITH 50 OR MORE

EMPLOYEES, PROVIDE HEALTH

INSURANCE OR PAY PENALTIES.

IT WAS A THREE AND A HALF

PAGE PROVISION THAT GOT

TURNED INTO 144 PAGE

REGULATION.

Reporter: COLEMAN

FIELDS QUESTIONS FROM

BUSINESS OWNERS DAILY.

HE SAYS THEY EXPECT TO PAY

MORE, BUT THEY DON'T KNOW

HOW MUCH.

THERE IS A LOT OF

HEARTBURN AND NERVOUSNESS

ABOUT WHAT EXACTLY THE

INCREASED COSTS WILL MEAN

FOR THEIR BECOME LINE.

Reporter: THAT IS

CREATING PANIC, AND KEEPING

MANY BUSINESSES FROM HIRING

WORKERS.

PRESIDENT OBAMA MAINTAINS

THAT AMERICANS WHO LIKE

THEIR INSURANCE PLAN CAN

KEEP IT, BUT THAT IS NOT

TURNING OUT TO BE THE CASE.

ACCORDING TO A STUDY OF MORE

THAN 10,000 PLANS ON THE

INDIVIDUAL MARKET, LESS THAN

2% COMPLY WITH OBAMACARE

REQUIREMENTS.

AND THE CONGRESSIONAL BUDGET

OFFICE NOW ESTIMATES SEVEN

MILLION AMERICANS WILL BE

DROPPED FROM THEIR

EMPLOYERS' HEALTH PLANS AND

FORCED INTO HEALTH

EXCHANGES.

EVEN AFTER ALL 20,000 PAGES

OF REGULATIONS ARE

IMPLEMENTED, NOT ALL

AMERICANS WILL BE INSURED,

AS PROMISED.

C.B.O. ESTIMATES BY THE YEAR

2023, 30 MILLION AMERICANS

WON'T HAVE INSURANCE, AND BY

THAT TIME, AMERICA WILL HAVE

SPENT NEARLY $2 TRILLION

IMPLEMENTING THE LAW.

WE'RE SPENDING A LOT OF

MONEY AND HELPING RELATIVELY

FEW PEOPLE.

IN MANY WAYS, IT WOULD HAVE

BEEN SIMPLER AND CHEAPER TO

GIVE EVERYBODY MONEY TO BUY

INSURANCE.

Reporter: STILL, MORE

AMERICANS WILL HAVE HEALTH

INSURANCE UNDER OBAMACARE.

THAT WILL LEAD TO GREATER

DEMANDS ON THE HEALTH CARE

SYSTEM, BUT TANNER SAYS

THEREIN LIES OTHER PROBLEM.

WE KNOW THAT THE

INDEPENDENT PAYMENT ADVISORY

BOARD, WHICH KICKS IN IN

2017, IS CHARGED WE REDUCING

THE REIMBURSEMENT RATES

UNDER MEDICARE FOR DOCTORS

AND FOR HOSPITALS.

WE KNOW THAT THE

GOVERNMENT'S OWN CHIEF

ACTUARY SAYS THAT 15% OF

HOSPITALS WILL CLOSE AS A

RESULT OF THIS BECAUSE

THEY'RE NO LONGER VIABLE.

*

Reporter: STILL, THE

REGULATIONS KEEP COMING.

DAVID, AS EXPERTS AND

BUSINESS OWNERS WORK AROUND

THE CLOCK TO TRY TO

UNDERSTAND THEM AND COMPLY.

David: ALL RIGHT,

THANKS, JENNY.

WHEN WE COME BACK, POLITICS

AND FAITH COME TOGETHER AT

THE LARGEST MESSIANIC

CONGREGATION IN AMERICA.

"THE BRODY FILE" SPOKE THEIR

RECENTLY, AND WE'RE GOING TO

PLAY YOU SOME OF THAT NEXT.

David: AND WELCOME

BACK TO "THE BRODY FILE."

AS YOU KNOW, WE COMBINE

FAITH AND POLITICS HERE AT

"THE BRODY FILE."

AND RECENTLY WE DID JUST

THAT AT THE BETH ISRAEL

WORSHIP CENTER IN WAYNE, NEW

JERSEY.

I WAS INVITED TO SPEAK THERE

BY PASTOR JOHN THAN KAHN.

HE GOES BY RABBI KAHN

THERE.

HE IS THE AUTHOR OF THE

INSANELY POPULAR BOOK CALLED

"THE HARBINGER 1KWR50EURBGSZ

THIHARBINGER."

THIS IS A MESSIANIC CHURCH

MADE UP OF JEWS AND GENTILES

AS WELL.

I WANT YOU TO LISTEN TO SOME

OF WHAT PASTOR JONATHAN CAHN

HAD TO TELL THE

CONGREGATION.

THERE IS THE MOVIE, "THE

GREATEST LITTLE LOST ARK."

THAT ARK IS THE TREASURE.

PEOPLE HAVE BEEN SEEKING IT

FOR CENTURIES.

YOU HAVE PEOPLE STILL, NOW,

TRYING TO FIND WHAT HAPPENED

TO THAT ARK?

WHERE IS IT?

SOME PEOPLE THINK IT IS IN

ETHIOPIA.

SOME THINK IT IS UNDER THE

TEMPLE MOUNT, HIDDEN BY

JEREMIAH.

SOME THINK IT IS IN THE

REALM OF EGYPT.

NOBODY EVEN KNOWS WHERE IT

IS.

NOBODY KNOWS.

BUT THE TRUE ARK NOW IS NOT

EVEN THAT.

IT IS THE PRESENCE OF GOD IN

YOU, HIS PEOPLE, THE TEMPLE

OF GOD.

THE THING IS -- THE THING IS

THE PEOPLE OF ISRAEL HAD TO

TREASURE THAT ARK.

AND YOU ARE NOW, IF YOU'RE

BORN AGAIN, YOU ARE GRAFTED

INTO THE CHILDREN OF

ISRAEL.

YOU ARE A CHILD OF ISRAEL,

WHETHER JEW OR GENTILE, AND

WHAT IT MEANS IS THAT YOU

MUST ALSO KEEP AS YOUR

BIGGEST TREASURE THE

PRESENCE OF GOD.

THAT IS THE BIGGEST TREASURE

YOU HAVE IN YOUR LIFE.

THAT'S THE THING THAT'S

GOING TO CHANGE EVERYTHING.

THAT'S WHAT'S GOING TO

OVERCOME THE WORLD.

AND THAT'S WHAT IS GOING TO

OVERCOME EVERY PROBLEM IN

YOUR LIFE.

KEEP IT FIRST.

FOLLOW IT.

KEEP YOUR EYES ON THE

PRIZE.

KEEP YOUR EYES ON THE LORD.

AND YOU WILL OVERCOME EVERY

BATTLE IN THIS WORLD.

AMEN.

AND AMEN.

David: THOSE ARE

STRONG AND POWERFUL COMMENTS

FROM JO JONATHAN CAHN.

YOU COULD DEFINITELY TELL

THROUGHOUT THAT WEEKEND THAT

THE HOLY SPIRIT WAS ALIVE

AND WELL AND PRESENT THERE.

AFTER JONATHAN SPOKE, I

TALKED ABOUT BIBLICAL

CURIOSITY AND HOW WE MUST

TELL PEOPLE ABOUT JESUS

EVERY CHANCE WE GET.

WE HAVE TO BE BOLD.

WE MUST BE BOLD.

THERE IS NO GREY AREA HERE

WHATSOEVER.

JESUS DIED ON THE CROSS FOR

MY SINS, FOR YOUR SINS, FOR

ALL OF MANKIND'S SINS.

HE OFFERS A PATH TO HEAVEN,

TO BE IN ETERNITY FOR HIM,

FOR THOSE WHO CHOOSE TO TAKE

IT.

WE CAN'T SEND MIXED

MESSAGES.

WE JUST CAN'T.

AND SPEAKING OF MIXED

MESSAGES, HERE IS A FUNNY

LITTLE STORY.

THERE WAS A GIRL WHO WAS

CURIOUS ABOUT WHERE HUMANS

COME FROM.

SO SHE GOES TO HER MOM, AND

SHE SAYS, MOM, WHERE DO

HUMANS COME FROM?

AND HER MOM SAYS, WELL, GOD

MADE ADAM AND EVE, AND THEY

HAD CHILDREN, AND THAT'S HOW

WHERE WE DESCENDED FROM.

THE GIRL GOES TO HER FATHER,

AND HE SAYS, DAD, WHERE DO

HUMANS COME FROM.

THE FATHER SAYS, HEY, WELL,

THERE WERE MONKEYS FROM

WHICH PEOPLE EVOLVED.

AND SO THE GIRL IS TOTALLY

CONFUSED.

THEY'RE SENDING MIXED

MESSAGES.

THE GIRL GOES BACK TO HER

MOM AND SAYS, HOW IS IT

POSSIBLE THAT YOU'RE SAYING

ONE THING AND DAD IS SAYING

ANOTHER.

AND SHE SAYS, DEAR, IT'S

VERY SIMPLE.

I TOLD YOU ABOUT MY SIDE OF

THE FAMILY, AND YOUR FATHER

TOLD YOU ABOUT HIS.

I LOVE THAT STORY.

THE REALITY IS WE'RE CURIOUS

ABOUT EVERYTHING.

WE'RE CURIOUS ABOUT

POLITICS.

WE'RE CURIOUS ABOUT

OUTERSPACE.

WE'RE CURIOUS ABOUT PEOPLE'S

LIVES -- SOMETIMES TOO

CURIOUS.

THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH

ANY OF THAT, BUT AS THE

IRISH WRITER AND POET SAID,

OSCAR WILD, "THE PUBLIC HAVE

AN INSATIABLE APPETITE TO

KNOW EVERYTHING, EXCEPT WHAT

IS IMPORTANT."

AND THERE IS ONLY ONE THING

THAT IS WORTH KNOWING, THAT

JESUS CHRIST IS THE LIVING

MESSIAH.

NOT JUST KNOWING IT IN YOUR

HEAD, BUT ALSO BELIEVING IT

IN YOUR HEART.

FULLY RELINQUISHING YOURSELF

AND KNOWING YOU ARE NOTHING

WITHOUT HIM.

HEAVEN IS NOT ATTAINABLE

WITHOUT HIM.

WHERE DOES THIS WHOLE

THOUGHT PROCESS START?

IT STARTS WITH CURIOSITY.

I ENJOYED GROWING UP

JEWISH.

I LOVED THE TRADITIONS.

I LOVED THE COCONUT

MACAROONS.

I LOVED IT ALL.

BUT FOR ME, MY WALK DOWN

CURIOSITY LANE BEGAN WITH

ONE SIMPLE QUESTION, AND

THAT WAS: WHO IS JESUS?

AND IF WE'RE AUTHENTIC ABOUT

SEARCHING, AND WE REALLY

WANT TO KNOW WHO HE IS, HE

WILL REVEAL HIMSELF.

HE WILL DO THAT.

AND BETTER NOW THAN BEFORE

IT IS TOO LATE.

OUR GOD IS A PATIENT GOD.

WELL, AT SOME POINT GOD IS

GOING TO SAY ENOUGH.

AND WE NEED TO BE

ENCOURAGERS OF CURIOSITY.

IT IS OUR BIBLICAL DUTY, AND

OTHERS ARE COUNTING ON US.

THANK YOU ALL VERY MUCH.

GOD BLESS YOU.

A BIG THANK YOU TO ALL OF

THE FOLKS AT BETH ISRAEL.

THEY REALLY ARE SOME OF THE

GREATEST PEOPLE YOU'LL EVERY

MEET.

BACK IN A MOMENT WITH OUR

OY-VEY MOMENT OF THE WEEK.

EYE

David: AND WELCOME

BACK TO "THE BRODY FILE."

BEFORE WE LEAVE YOU, WE

CAN'T FINISH WITHOUT SHARING

WITH YOU OUR WEEKLY STAPLE.

IT IS TIME FOR THE OY-VEY

MOMENT OF THE WEEK.

WELL, THIS IS A BIT

RIDICULOUS.

IF YOU WANT TO MAKE

RESERVATIONS TO SEE THE 9/11

MUSEUM IN NEW YORK CITY, YOU

NOW HAVE TO PAY TWO BUCKS.

THAT'S RIGHT, IF YOU WANT AN

ADVANCED RESERVATION, IT IS

GOING TO COST YOU A $2

SERVICE FEE.

THE 9/11 FOUNDATION SAYS THE

FEE SUPPORTS THE OPERATIONAL

NEEDS OF THE MEMORIAL, BUT

RELATIVES OF THE VICTIMS SAY

THIS IS RIDICULOUS.

IT'S HORRIBLE.

I MEAN, YOU'RE PAYING TO GET

INTO A CEMETERY.

I THINK IT IS GOING TO BE A

REVENUE-GENERATING, TOURIST

ATTRACTION.

David: THE 9/11

ORGANIZATION DOES SAY THAT

FAMILY MEMBERS ARE EXEMPT

FROM THE $2 FEE, BUT

OY-GEVALT.

THIS STRIKES "THE BRODY

FILE" AS TACKY, TO SAY THE

LEAST, NOT TO MENTION DOWN

RIGHT WRONG.

SUCK UP THE COSTS, FOLKS.

SUCK UP THE COSTS.

WHILE WE'RE ON THE SUBJECT

OF TERRORISM, "THE BRODY

FILE" WANTS TO EXPRESS OUR

DEEPEST SYMPATHY TO THE

VICTIMS OF THE BOSTON

MARATHON BOMBINGS.

A WORD TO THE TERRORISTS,

YOU MIGHT TRY TO INFLICT

PAIN ON US, BUT WE ARE

AMERICA.

WE WILL FIGHT BACK, AND WE

WILL BRING YOU TO JUSTICE.

YOU CANNOT GET AWAY WITH

IT.

WE'VE PROVEN IT BEFORE, AND

WE'LL PROVE IT YET AGAIN.

THAT DOES IT FOR US.

UNTIL NEXT TIME, GOD BLESS

YOU.

HAVE A GREAT WEEK.
