I will be on the “Live and Let Live” Radio Show this Sunday night, December 8, 2013, from 9pm to 10pm CST. I will be speaking with host Gary Johnson (no, not the former presidential candidate, but the TEXAS Gary Johnson) about government, marriage, and the Patrick Henry College debate, as well as other Christian libertarian topics.
The program is live on the Logos Radio Network, also known as the Rule of Law Radio Network. It can be heard live on http://www.LogosRadioNetwork.com and on affiliate stations, including 90.1 FM in Austin, Texas. The episode will be archived on http://archive.LogosRadioNetwork.com/category/live-and-let-live/.
You can even call in to ask a question at 512-646-1984.
Tune in and hang out with us on Sunday night!

I will be participating in a debate this Saturday at 7:00 pm EST (November 16, 2013) at Patrick Henry College in Purcellville, Virginia. The debate is hosted by the Wilberforce Society, and the topic is “Government and Marriage.” More specifically, should the government define marriage to be between one man and one woman? I’ll be defending the negative — that government should not have that power. It should be a really fun event. My fellow debater will be Dr. Allan Carlson of the Howard Center For Family, Religion, and Society. I am confident that we will all be able to learn from each other.
If you’re in the area, feel free to join us (I think it is open to the public). The debate will be held in the Student Lounge of the Barbara Hodel Center, located at 10 Patrick Henry Circle, Purcellville, VA 20132.
I am uncertain at this point if the debate will be recorded and/or streamed live, but stay tuned to this post and I will update with additional details as they come.
Lastly, please pray that I can present the best case for why we cannot trust the government to be any better a steward or regulator of “marriage” than they are a steward of our economy, health, or security. As always, thank you for your support of the efforts of LibertarianChristians.com!
UPDATE: I am told that the event will be live-streamed, click here at 7pm EST on November 16 to watch. Hopefully the recording will be made available following the event…

We have for quite a while had a problem with the Christian Libertarian FAQ software not being capable of filtering spam, and thus new submissions have been shut down for some time. Thankfully, this problem has now been remedied and you can now submit questions with ease again.
Of course, we still have to make the time to answer, so we appreciate your patience as we play catch-up for a while and try to make all you inquisitive readers as happy as we can.
Thank you for your continued support of LCC, and we hope you look forward to the further changes we will be making to the website in the coming weeks.
Do you have a question about liberty, theology, economics, or ethics? Ask it here.

Recapping the interesting and significant news of the past (few) weeks…
It has been a quiet past week at LCC, for one particular reason that is quite newsworthy: my wife and I had our first baby boy! Everything went extremely well: born at home, healthy and alert, momma and baby Caleb Horn are doing just great. Of course, we are still working into a new routine here at the Horn household. In short, we like to call this “breeding for liberty!” If you can’t beat the State now, just make enough babies until you can! Haha. Here’s a cute pic of the new wee one.
Here are a few other fun articles for your reading pleasure in the meantime. You’ll begin to see an uptick in blog posts here starting tomorrow (hopefully). Thank you all for your support and prayers!
Best read of the week: What does theology have to say about economics?
New at the American Liberty Association: The Patriot Church.
Anarcho-capitalism: so crazy, it might work!
The excellent First Things Blog shows how the dystopian world of the Hunger Games relates to our present world.
Did you know that the US federal government has the power to, and in most cases does, record nearly all phone traffic within the US borders and beyond? Yes Virginia, they do.
And moreover, the Feds are smart enough to declare definitively that the US mobile market is too dynamic to be considered “competitive”. Yeah.
Oh well, at least you can now get yourself an anti-drone hoodie.
