Quotes from this episode:

“The tragedy of cancel culture is that nobody’s actually mad about this stuff. It’s just all fake outrage.” — Joe Setyon 

“The shame thing only works if you’re willing to admit to being shamed. If you’re willing to act like you’re shamed. That’s one of the things I think that the media despises about Trump — is there’s zero chance of his coming out and making a mea culpa.” — Josh Manning 

“The left doesn’t positively stand for things as a general rule. They go negative with it.” — George Upper 

“We don’t know what Joe Biden’s version of the story is because nobody in America’s vast media landscape has pressed him.” — George Upper 

“I don’t think there’s just an opportunity for the church to speak into the political realm. I think it’s absolutely required for the church. The mandate of the church was never intended to be a suicide pact. The church should fight for the rights of its organizations.” — George Upper 

“It seems to me if the church, if members of the church, saw a homeless man being beaten to a pulp, they would have an obligation to try to stop them — I would think so. It’s not clear to me why that is particularly virtuous yet trying to stop that on a large-scale level is somehow not virtuous.” — Josh Manning

“[Piper] is clearly creating a hierarchy here where the things the ‘Orange Man’ does are worse than the things that that the left does. That’s an enormous, enormous problem.” — Josh Manning 

“I’m not that scared of Biden’s policies. If we can regain control, we can reverse some of those. I’m worried about never regaining control again.” — Josh Manning
