    51. "Sin is sin; love is love..."

    51. "Sin is sin; love is love..."

    Jessica and Butch take on the topic of "same-sex attraction" and the Christian Church. This is a really dicey topic and is very complex, so we're trying to explore ways in which we can love and care for and welcome those who don't identify in a "traditional" way sexually. This is the beginning of a conversation on the topic, not the end, but we tried to lay out where the problems really lie and what the challenges are. So listen with an open mind and an open heart. That's the only way we feel like we can talk about it.

    50. “Think before you fly…”

    For our third “Civics and Community” event at the Loudoun Field Center in Lucketts, VA we sat down with Preston Huntington and Tori Carr with Xelevate, a drone training and testing facility right across the street from the Loudoun Field Center, to discuss the burgeoning and blossoming drone industry. We had some kids, parents, and previous guest of Rules of the Game, Tony Howard, to chat about how this technology and those which are adjacent to it will affect the next generation.

    49. "The cancellers are the real bigots..." Sophia A Nelson fighting the woke mob at CNU

    49. "The cancellers are the real bigots..." Sophia A Nelson fighting the woke mob at CNU

    For our 49th Episode, Butch has a very frank and open conversation with Sophia A. Nelson... a repeat guest to the show. Sophia is an adjunct professor and visiting scholar at Christopher Newport University and recently tweeted a question regarding the son of Superman coming out as bisexual in DC Comics. Following the tweet, a firestorm of madness, thought police, and whining white-privileged Gen-Z hacks, with the support of a few professors who should know better have been trying to get Sophia cancelled. We'll have a full article on the topic over the weekend, but in the meantime, listen to Butch and Sophia talk this out.

    48. "Extend your soul to the hungry..."

    48. "Extend your soul to the hungry..."

    This week's episode is a wide-ranging conversation between Gary Mears, Pastor of Faith Chapel Community Church in Lucketts, Virginia, right down the road from the Loudoun Field Center; and Paul Gernhardt, the Center's Executive Director.

    Butch Porter facilitates the discussion, which touches on the subjects of "mega-churches" and on how churches create a sense of community and family; helping those in need; being a place of spiritual healing, and how a church and the faith which it represents necessarily operates differently than simply a non-profit or a club. There is even a discussion about sin.

    47. “It starts with the right soil…”

    School is in! And we’re launching IndED’s Civics and Community program at the Loudoun Field Center as part of their new high school alternative in Lucketts, VA. This week we chat with Doug Fabbioli of Fabbioli Cellars to talk about ag business, ag education and the importance of staying in touch with nature. We were joined by a few middle school and high school students who asked some very insightful questions. Doug’s Rule is: “It starts with the right soil…” — For more information on the Loudoun Field Center go to: LoudounFieldCenter.org.
