So, angry callers swamped the phone lines of The Dana Show this afternoon wanting to excoriate the popular Christian talk-show host for wanting to engage in culture.
Dana live-tweeted the Oscars last night while watching the glamorization of ego event…and some on the Christian right were infuriated at her for wanting to engage in culture. These people argue that by any engagement in modern-day culture, one is promoting and contributing to the leftist Hollywood agenda.
Seriously? Seriously. I’ve got some news for you. Christianity is under attack here in America, in case you haven’t noticed. This is a cultural war we are in the midst of. Politics is downstream of culture. Until we reign in the culture, there is little that anyone will be able to do regarding violence, abortion issues, domestic issues, marital issues, abuse issues…shall I go on? First, we must recapture and inject pure biblical principles back into our society. What happened to honesty, humility, compassion, responsibility, purity, and respect? Until we obtain these, the rest is moot. The only way to achieve this is to engage in the culture that promotes the antithesis of Godliness.
And just a reminder: Without cultural engagement, we would never have had Elvis, Johnny Cash, Bob Hope, Ronald Reagan, Charles Schultz, CS Lewis, or, of course, the show Growing Pains! Could you imagine?
Christ calls us to engage, specifically, in Matt 28 16-20. I wouldn’t argue with that. Just sayin.

In the days of the internet, modern media, and leftist bias, it is often difficult to find truth. Frustrating even more, is when you actually find truth, and the Main Stream Media refuses to report on it.
Apparently, a bit light has been shed on the reality of what is actually happening between the Obama Administration and the Media. As originally reported on The Daily Caller, it seems David Brock has quite an extensive list of enemies. . .including Andrew Breitbart’s “Bigs”.

Beyond that, it has been discovered that MMfA has quite literally has direct lines to both MSNBC and The White House. Additionally,
“Media Matters intends to spend nearly $20 million in 2012 to influence news coverage.”
Where is the outrage? Where is the media coverage on this? It’s right here. Stay tuned here and on Big Journalism as this story continues to break.
We, at Gateway Grassroots Initiative, are proud and humbled to applaud one of our own who vigilantly fights the good fight in fair and honest reporting. GGI Co-creator Dana Loesch, Editor-In-Cheif of Big Journalism.com was honored this past weekend with the Accuracy in Media Award at CPAC 2012. Congratulations Dana! It’s no wonder CNN, of all networks, picked her up as a contributor. A title well earned!
For those desiring true entertainment, if you are not yet following Eric Boehlert on Twitter yet, I highly recommend it.

height=”269″ />Over the past week, there has been some disgruntled folks screaming bloody murder over the launch of Gateway Grassroots Initiative. The chatter has been anywhere from “this is the rival tea party”. . .to which I say there are SO many organizations that are like-minded, they are not necessarily “rivals”, to “Dana Loesch started her own Tea Party”. . .to which, I can attest to, while Dana has been a part of the formation of this organization, she has gladly taken a well-deserved back seat in it.
The Gateway Grassroots Initiative is action-based, not candidate-based. We are acting on issues, whether it be proposed legislation, or more personally relevant issues like C.E.R.T. training, survival training, and voter education.
As a brilliant friend and fellow patriot stated:
This is our mission. You can train people for caucuses, for precincts,
polling captains, etc but you will never change anything until you
change the hearts and minds of the people and reinforce it through
This is where the Tea Party is going. It’s about Education, Empowerment, Enrichment.
