The Brody File goes one-on-one with Rick Santorum as he talks about the perils of gay marriage. Also, Marco Rubio leads the way on a controversial new immigration bill. Plus Happy Birthday to Obamacare. Where are we three years after it became ... Read Transcript


David: THIS WEEK ON

"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, TO SAY

MARRIAGE IS ABOUT LOVE, THEN

ANYBODY CAN DO IT.

ATWO PEOPLE.

ANY TWO PEOPLE, ANY THREE OR

FOUR.

David: ALSO, MARK

MARCO RUBIO PUTS HIS

PRESIDENTIAL ASPIRATIONS ON

THE LINE AS HE LEADS THE WAY

ON A NEW CONTROVERSIAL

IMMIGRATION BILL.

HAVING DONE THIS A WRONG

WAS WILL NOT BE A REWARD.

David: ALSO, POWERFUL

WORDS FROM PASTOR JONATHAN

CAHN AS WE HEAD TO THE

MESSIANIC BETH ISRAEL CENTER

IN NEW JERSEY.

YOU ARE A CHILD OF

ISRAEL, AND WHAT IT MEANS IS

YOU MUST ALSO KEEP AS YOUR

BIGGEST TREASURE THE

PRESENCE OF GOD.

David: POLITICS AND

JESUS, BOTH ON DISPLAY IN

THE NEXT 30 MINUTES.

"THE BRODY FILE" IS NEXT.

*

Z

David: AND WELCOME,

EVERYBODY TO "THE BRODY

FILE."

WE'RE GLAD YOU ARE WITH US.

WELL, 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, THE

PAIN, IT WAS BEARABLE

BECAUSE THERE WAS HOPE.

THERE WAS HOPE OF NEW LIFE.

HE IS OUR LORD AND SAVIOR,

AND THAT 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 THAT HE

IS NO LONGER IN PAIN, AND HE

IS WALKING, WHICH HE

COULDN'T DO ANYMORE, AND HE

IS 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 AND

CHILDBIRTH.

HORRIBLE PAIN.

BUT SHE WAS ABLE TO BEAR

IT.

WHY?

BECAUSE LIFE WAS AT THE

OTHER END.

HERE IN AMERICA, THE OTHER

SIDE WANTS TO MINIMIZE PAIN,

AND IN 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 TAKE

CARE OF EVERYTHING.

David: HOW CONCERNED

ARE YOU THAT WHEN YOU SEE

THOSE 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 UNIVERSITYS,

SOME OF THE MOST LIBERAL

CAMPUSES IN AMERICA, WHERE

THE FONT OF THIS MOVEMENT

IS, AND WHERE I FOUND IS

THAT SHINING LIGHT AND

SHINING TRUTH HAS STILL A

VERY STRONG EFFECT.

I WENT TO YALE UNIVERSITY

ABOUT SIX MONTHS AGO AND

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 TOPIC.

AMERICAN GOVERNMENT IS

DESTROYING THE FAMILY.

AND THEY INVITED ME.

AND EVERYONE KNOWS MY

POSITION ON THE FAMILY AND

ON THE 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.

AND PEOPLE COMING UP TO ME

AND SAYING, I'VE NEVER

REALLY THOUGHT ABOUT THAT.

I NEVER REALLY UNDERSTOOD

THE CONSEQUENCES.

NO ONE HAS REALLY EVER SAT

DOWN AND LAID OUT THE TRUTH

ABOUT WHAT THE CONSEQUENCES

ARE OF CHANGING THE

FOUNDATIONAL INSTITUTION.

SO I JUST THINK WE HAVE TO

STAND BY THE TRUTH.

IT IS NATURE, THE IDEA THAT

TWO PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT A MAN

AND A WOMAN CAN GET MARRIED

IS AGAINST NATURE.

IT IS JUST SIMPLY NOT TRUE.

IT IS NOT TRADITIONAL.

IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH

TRADITION.

IT HAS EVERYTHING TO DO WITH

WHAT NATURE DICTATES, AND 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 20 16,

AND SPEAKING OF 2016, TIME

FOR A LITTLE "BRODY FILE"

PRESIDENTIAL UPDATE.

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 SINCE HE

IS STICKING HIS NECK OUT ON

THE LINE ON THIS NEW

IMMIGRATION BILL THAT WOULD

EVENTUALLY PROVIDE A PATH

FOR CITIZENSHIP FOR ILLEGAL

IMMIGRANTS.

HERE IS HOW HE IS PITCHING

THE PLAN.

WHY ISN'T IT TANTAMOUNT

TON AMNESTY, AS YOUR CRITICS

SAY.

AMNESTY IS FORGIVENESS OF

SOMETHING.

THERE WILL BE CONSEQUENSES

FOR VIOLATING THE LAW.

BUT THE TYPE OF CONSEQUENCES

THAT ENSURE THERE IS NO

INCENTIVE TO DO IT THIS WAY

AGAIN.

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 MUCH CHEAPER,

FASTER, EASIER, AND LESS BUC

CRATIC IF YOU'RE DOING IT

THE RIGHT WAY.

David: ANOTHER GUY WHO

IS EXPECTED TO RUN IS

SENATOR RAND PAUL.

WE DID A WHOLE SHOW ABOUT

HIM, AS YOU KNOW.

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 AND

BLACK HISTORY.

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, 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.

LISTEN TO THIS AGAIN, HE

SAID THAT AN UNJUST LAW --

AND THIS IS A GOOD WAY TO

LOOK AT ANY LAW -- AN UNJUST

LAW IS ANY LAW THAT A

MAJORITY -- NOT JUST A

RACIAL MAJORITY -- ENFORCES

ON A MINORITY BUT DOES NOT

MAKE BINDING UPON

THEMSELVES.

ANY LAW THAT APPLIES JUST TO

BANKERS WERE NOT BE RACIST,

BUT WOULD BE UNJUST.

ANY LAW THAT APPLIES TO ONE

PARTICULAR GROUP WOULD BE

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

DERIVE 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.

I WANT TO ASK YOU, ARE WE

DISCUSSING REPUBLICAN PARTY

POST- -- BEFORE 19 CENTURY

REPUBLICAN PARTY, OR

POST-1968 REPUBLICAN PARTY.

MY QUESTION TO 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 THE EMANCIPATION

AND VOTING RIGHTS AND

CITIZENSHIP, AND ALL OF

THAT, OF THE 13TH, 14TH, AND

15th AMENDMENT.

AND THE POINT I'M TRYING TO

MAKE IS WE HAVEN'T CHANGED.

WE DON'T TALK ABOUT IT.

MY ARGUMENT IS THERE ARE

SOME OF US WHO HAVEN'T

CHANGED, WHO ARE STILL PART

OF THAT PARTY YOU LIKED, BUT

THERE ARE PART OF US WHO

TRULY BELIEVE THAT REAGAN

WAS STILL PART OF THAT.

WE DON'T SEE AN ABRUPT

DIFFERENCE.

WE SEE HORRIBLE RACISM THAT

HAPPENED IN THE '30s,

'40s, '50s, AND IT WAS

ALL DEMOCRATS.

IT WASN'T ALL REPUBLICANS.

DID SOME SWITCH OVER AND

BECOME REPUBLICANS, YES.

I THINK IT IS A GOOD

THING HE CAME HERE IN THE

FIRST PLACE.

HE WAS BRAVE BECAUSE HE MET

WITH A LITTLE BIDDE BIT OF

OPPOSITION.

AND IT SEEMS LIKE THE

REPUBLICAN PARTY, THROUGH

RAND PAUL, IS MAKING STEPS

IN BIPARTISANSHIP, AND

REACHING OUT TO THIS YOUNGER

GENERATION.

I APPRECIATE THE FACT HE

DID NOT CHANGE HIS

POSITION.

HE TRIED TO ARTICULATE A LOT

OF THE THINGS HE WAS

SAYING.

I THOUGHT THERE WAS SOME

CONFUSION ABOUT THE CURRENT

STATE OF THE REPUBLICAN

PARTY AND THE PAST

REPUBLICAN PARTY.

HE SEEMED TO LEAVE OUT THE

FACT THAT A LOT OF PEOPLE

CROSSED TO THE REPUBLICAN

PARTY.

HE WAS

David: THAT DIDN'T

NECESSARILY GO OVER TOO WELL

WITH MANY OF THE STUDENTS,

BUT YOU HAVE GOT TO GIVE

SENATOR RAND PAUL CREDIT FOR

TRYING.

THERE WERE PLENTY OF OTHER

REPUBLICANS WHO WOULDN'T

EVEN GO TO HOWARD UNIVERSITY

TO MAKE THE ARGUMENT.

SO KUDOS TO RAND PAUL.

WHEN WE COME BACK, HAPPY

BIRTHDAY TO OBAMACARE.

WHERE ARE WE THREE YEARS

AFTER IT BECAME LAW?

David: WELCOME BACK TO

"THE BRODY FILE."

GRAB THE EX SED DRIN BECAUSE

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.

*

* YOU GO, GIRL.

*

David: JENNY AND

THE "B" BLOCK IS BACK THIS

WEEK TO DISCUSS OBAMA CARE

AND WHERE WE ARE THREE YEARS

LATER.

Reporter: DAVID, GRAB

THE ASPIRIN AND YOUR

CHECKBOOK, AND A LITTLE --

WELL, MAYBE A LOT OF

PATIENCE WOULDN'T HURT,

EITHER.

THREE YEARS LATER, THE

AFFORDABLE CARE ACT, ALSO

KNOWN AS OBAMACARE, ISN'T

LIVING UP TO ITS PROMISES.

IT IS 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

20,000 PAGES OF

LEGISLATION.

Reporter: THAT'S

17,11:30 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 AN

EMPLOYER MANDATE THAT

REQUIRES THAT BUSINESSES

WITH 50 OR MORE FULL-TIME

EMPLOYEES PROVIDE HEALTH

INSURANCE OR PAY PENALTIES,

IT WAS A THREE AND A HALF

PAGE PROVISION THAT GOT

TURNED INTO A 144-PAGE

REGULATION.

Reporter: COLEMAN

FIELDS QUESTIONS FROM

BUSINESS OWNERS DAILY.

HE SAYS THEY EXPECT TO PAY

MORE UNDER OBAMACARE, BUT

THEY DON'T KNOW HOW MUCH.

THERE IS A LOT OF

HEARTBURN AND A LOT OF

NERVOUSNESS ABOUT WO WHAT

THE INCREASE WILL MEAN FOR

THEIR BOTTOM LINE.

Reporter: THAT IS

CREATING PANIC AND KEEPING

MANY BUSINESSES FROM HIRING

NEW 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.

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 IN HELPING RELATIVELY

FEW PEOPLE.

IN MANY WAYS, IT WOULD HAVE

BEEN SIMPLER AND CHEAPER

JUST TO GIVE EVERYBODY MONEY

TO BUY INSURANCE.

Reporter: STILL, MORE

AMERICANS WILL HAVE HEALTH

INSURANCE UNDER OBAMACARE.

THAT WILL LEAD TO GREATER

DEPENDS ON THE HEALTH CARE

SYSTEM, BUT TANNER SAYS

THEREIN LIES ANOTHER

PROBLEM.

WE NO THAT THE

INDEPENDENT PAYMENT ADVISORY

BOARD WHICH KICKS IN IN 2017

IS CHARGED WITH REDUCING THE

REIMBURSEMENT RATES UNDER

MEDICARE FOR DOCTORS AND

HOSPITALS.

WE KNOW THAT THE

GOVERNMENT'S OWN CHIEF AC

ACTUARY IS ABOUT 15% OF

HOSPITALS WILL CLOSE BECAUSE

OF THIS, BECAUSE THEY ARE 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 THERE

RECENTLY, AND WE'RE GOING TO

PLAY YOU SOME OF THAT,

NEXT.

David: 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.

IT WAS INVITED TO SPEAK

THERE BY RABBI KAHN.

HE IS IS THE AUTHOR OF THE

INSANELY POPULAR BOOK CALLED

"THE HARBINGER."

IT IS MADE UP OF JEWISH

BELIEVERS, AND GENTILES AS

WELL.

BEFORE HEARING A LITTLE BIT

OF WHAT I HAD TO SAY, I WANT

YOU TO LISTEN TO SOME OF

WHAT PASTOR JONATHAN

JONATHAN CAHN TO TELL THE

CONGREGATION.

THERE IS THE MOVIE THE

LOST ARC, AND THE ARC 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 IT IS UNDER THE

TEMPLE MOUNT, HIDDEN BY

JEREMIAH.

SOME PEOPLE THINK IT IS IN

THE REALM OF EGYPT, IN THE

PHARAOHS.

NOBODY KNOWS IF IT IS EVEN

HERE, IF IT HASN'T BEEN

MELTED DOWN.

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 PEOPLE OF

ISRAEL HAD TO TREASURE THAT

ARK, AND KEEP IT TREASURED.

AND IF YOU'RE BORN AGAIN,

YOU'RE DRAFTED INTO THE

CHILDREN OF ISRAEL.

YOU'RE A CHILD OF ISRAEL,

WHETHER JEW OR GENTILE, AND

WHAT IT MEANS IS 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 IS 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 JONATHAN CAHN.

YOU COULD DEFINITELY TELL

THROUGHOUT THAT WHOLE

WEEKEND THAT THE HOLY SPIRIT

WAS ALIVE AND WELL, AND

PRESENT THERE.

ANYHOW, 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.

AND HE OFFERS A PATH TO

HEAVEN, TO BE IN ETERNITY

WITH 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 GOD MADE

ADAM AND EVE AND THEY MADE

CHILDREN.

AND THAT'S WHERE WE

DESCENDED FROM.

AND THE GIRL GOES TO HER

FATHER AND SAYS WHERE DOES

HUMANS COME FROM, AND THE

FATHER SAYS, THERE WERE

MONKEYS FROM WHICH PEOPLE

EVOLVED.

SO THE GIRL IS TOTALLY

CONFUSED.

THEY'RE SENDING MIXED

MESSAGES.

AND THE GIRL SAYS TO HER

MOM, HOW IS IT POSSIBLE THAT

YOU'RE SIG ONE THING AND DAD

IS SAYING ANOTHER.

AND THE MOM SAYS, IT'S VERY

SIMPLE, I TOLD YOU ABOUT MY

SIDE OF THE FAMILY, AND YOUR

FATHER TOLD YOU ABOUT HIS.

WE'RE CURIOUS ABOUT

POLITICS, WE'RE CURIOUS

ABOUT OUTERSPACE, WE'RE

CURIOUS ABOUT PEOPLE'S

LIVES -- SOMETIMES TOO

CURIOUS.

BUT THERE IS NOTHING WRONG

WITH ANY OF THAT.

BUT AS THE IRISH WRITER AND

POET OSCAR WILD SAID, THE

PUBLIC HAS AN UNSATIABLE

WANTING TO KNOW, BUT

ULTIMATELY MOST IS NOT WORTH

ANYTHING.

THERE IS ONLY ONE THING

WORTH KNOWING, AND THAT'S

JESUS CHRIST IS THE MESSIAH,

AND ALSO BELIEVING IT IN

YOUR HEART.

FULLY RELINQUISHING TO

YOURSELF THAT YOU ARE

NOTHING WITHOUT HIM,

NOTHING.

HEAVEN IS NOT ATTAINABLE

WITHOUT HIM.

WHERE DOES THIS WHOLE

PROCESS START?

IT STARTS WITH CURIOSITY.

IT STARTS WITH BIBLICAL

CURIOSITY.

I ENJOYED GROWING UP

JEWISH.

I LOVED THE TRADITIONS.

I LOVED THE HUMOR.

I LOVED THE COCONUT

MACAROONS -- I LOVED IT

ALL.

BUT FOR ME MY WALK DOWN

CURIOSITY LANE BEGAN WITH

ONE QUESTION, AND THAT IS

WHO IS JESUS?

WHO WE ARE 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.

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 ALL.

David: A BIG THANK YOU

TO ALL OF THE FOLKS AT BETH

ISRAEL.

THEY REALLY ARE SOME OF THE

GREATEST PEOPLE YOU'RE EVER

GOING TO MEET.

BACK IN A MOMENT WITH OUR

OY-VEY MOMENT OF THE WEEK.

David: WELCOME BACK TO

"THE BRODY FILE."

ALL RIGHT, BEFORE WE LEAVE

YOU, WE CAN'T FINISH WITHOUT

SHARING WITH YOU OUR WEEKLY

STAPLE.

FOLKS, IT IS TIME FOR THE

OY-VEY MOMENT OF THE WEEK.

THIS IS RIDICULOUS.

IF YOU WANT TO MAKE

RESERVATIONS TO SEE THE 9/11

MUSEUM IN NEW YORK CITY, YOU

NOW HAVE TO PAY $2.

THAT'S RIGHT, IF YOU WANT AN

ADVANCED RESERVATION, IT'S

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, IT'S LIKE PAYING TO

GET INTO A CEMETERY.

I THINK IT WILL BE A

REVENUE GENERATING TOURIST

ATTRACTION.

David: THE 9/11

ORGANIZATION SAYS THAT

FAMILY MEMBERS ARE EXEMPT

FROM THE $20 FEE, BUT

OY-GEVALT.

IT STRIKES "THE BRODY FILE"

AS TACKY, AND DOWNRIGHT

LOST.

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 TERROR INCIDENT.

BUT REMEMBER A WORD TO THE

TERRORISTS, YOU MIGHT TRY TO

INFLICT PAIN ON US, BUT

E AR 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.

UNTIL NEXT TIME, EVERYBODY,

GOD BLESS YOU.
