White born-again or evangelical Christians and white Catholics strongly supported Donald Trump for president. To what extent does this vote represent Christian values?

Stephen Gray is the author of Cannabis and Spirituality:  An Explorer’s Guide to an Ancient Plant Spirit Ally.  On October 1st, 2015, Oregon joined Washington and Colorado as the third state to legalize recreational use of cannabis.     Now that it is easy as going to one of the many cannabis shops in the state and choosing from a wide selection of strains, many who perhaps haven’t used cannabis since college or are curious and using it for the first time  may have many questions about the plant.  

Many misconceptions about cannabis abound.   It is much maligned and misunderstood.  Today we will address questions such as: What are its effects?  What is a good dosage?  Why do some people have negative experiences with it (such as paranoia or anxiety)?  Is it addictive?   Is it good for society to legalize cannabis?   

We are also going to talk about the spirituality of cannabis.   How can cannabis be an ally in spiritual practice?   

I also speak with Michael Eric Dyson, author of Tears We Cannot Stop: A Sermon to White America about police brutality, racism and the killing of teenager Quanice Hayes by Portland police.  Here is a letter I had published in the Oregonian and the Portland Tribune about the murder of Quanice Hayes and the failure of the grand jury to indict the officer, Andrew Hearst of the Portland Police Department. Also, a piece about it on my blog

During one year, 1967, it seemed possible that the world could be transformed by peace, love, and meditation. The assassinations, violence, and polarization of 1968 hadn’t happened, and the hippies were exploring spirituality and social justice.  
Danny Goldberg takes us back to 1967, to the music, the acid, Jefferson Airplane, Allen Ginsburg, Black Power, and Muhammad Ali.  He is the author of How the Left Lost Teen Spirit and Bumping into Geniuses: MY Life Inside the Rock and Roll Business. Danny Goldberg is president of Gold Village entertainment and author of the book we will discuss today: In Search of the Lost Chord: 1967 and the Hippie Idea

Jann Aldredge-Clanton didn't start out as a reformer. When she was a pre-teen, she almost starved herself to death trying to fit into the culture's feminine mold. In high school she felt inadequate because she never won a beauty crown, even though she graduated at the top of her class. Slowly, she began waking up to her own voice, and became one of the first women ever to be ordained as a Baptist minister in the South. She is the author of several books including hymnbooks in which she writes hymns in honor of the divine feminine. Her books include: Intercultural Ministry: Hope for a Changing World, Earth Transformed with Music! Inclusive Songs for WorshipInclusive Hymns for Liberating Christians, and Inclusive Hymns for Liberation, Peace, and Justice

Brent Landau of the University of Texas at Austin. Dr. Landau and his colleague, Geoffrey Smith have made a discovery of an ancient apocryphal text in which Jesus shares secret revelations to his brother James.  Dr. Landau speaks to me about the significance of this discovery. Brent Landau is a lecturer in the Department of Religious Studies. He received his Th.D and M.Div from Harvard University and his chief research is on ancient Christian apocryphal writings.

Les Jamieson was live with John Shuck on Friday morning December 8th on KBOO’s The Beloved Community to discuss Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) that is set to expire on Dec. 31st, 2017. This is the language which allows for warrantless spying on all Americans by the NSA. According to Mr. Jamieson, a vote could be taken before recess on December 15th on bills to extend Section 702 and make warrantless spying legal and permanent. Oregon Senator Ron Wyden has proposed legislation to reform 702 and add safeguards to protect civil liberties. Wyden’s Bill is called The USA Rights Act.

In this episode Les Jamieson discussed NSA, Edward Snowden, spying, whistleblower William Binney (who is featured in Oliver Stone’s “A Good American”), and the software he created, “Thin Thread” would have done the work of foreign surveillance while protecting the privacy of Americans. It was discontinued three weeks before 9/11.
