Relatable with Allie Beth Stuckey: Today we’re discussing the American Academy of Pediatrics’ new childhood obesity treatment guidelines, which suggest surgery and medications in severe cases of childhood obesity. Of course, we’ve seen obesity rates skyrocket in the past few years due to lockdowns and school closures, as well as the increasing glorification of obesity in Hollywood and the music industry. We talk about what real solutions might look like, without the insanity of surgeries and pharmaceuticals not intended for children, and why we should be skeptical of these “expert suggestions” in light of what “experts” did during COVID. Then, we look at the Miss Universe pageant, which is owned by a biological male who identifies as female. In last week’s competition, he announced that the pageant is run by women and made for women, revealing yet another space for women that has been taken over by men. We also look at some of the crazy costumes from the pageant. We’re catching up on the gas stove controversy, covering the Left’s original discussions about banning, their hypocrisy, and all the gaslighting when they got pushback. Lastly, we discuss Beth Moore’s recent Twitter thread in which she states she doesn’t agree with Jonathan Edwards’ “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God.” We dive into Edwards’ sermon and break down the uncomfortable truth of the wrath of God, the choice he has given us to be redeemed, and why the wishy-washy doctrine Beth Moore seems to prefer offers nothing new.
