Ep. 149: A Conversation with David French

These mid-week “Extra” episodes are a chance for us to go deep with a particular topic, and today I’m pleased to have back on the program David French.  David wrote an article about Liberty University that I wanted to explore more deeply.

But first, a bit of David’s background.

David French is a graduate of Lipscomb University in Nashville, and also of Harvard Law School.  He spent many years as an attorney with Alliance Defending Freedom.  He was a staff writer for the National Review from 2015 to 2019, and he currently serves as senior editor of The Dispatch.

Before we go, I want to remind you that you can find the article we discussed today, about Liberty University, over at The Dispatch, where David is a senior editor.

I’d like to add in closing that MinistryWatch has published nearly 100 articles in the past two years that either mentions or features Liberty University.  To find them, just go to MinitryWatch.com and type “Liberty University” into the search engine.

Our Kanakuk coverage, which now amounts to more than 20 stories, as well as our coverage of the Southern Baptist Convention and other organizations we discussed today, can also be found at MinistryWatch.com.

Finally, a reminder that because of the Thanksgiving holiday, we will not be posting an episode on Friday, and that means this will be the last episode of the podcast before Giving Tuesday.  If you’ve found the work of MinistryWatch to be a blessing to you, I hope you’ll consider a gift on Giving Tuesday, or sometime between now and the end of the year.  Just go to MinistryWatch.com and hit the donate button at the top of the page.

The producers for today’s program are Rich Roszel and Ben Warwick . We get database and other technical support from Cathy Goddard, Stephen DuBarry, and Casey Sudduth.

I’m Warren Smith, and – until next time – May God bless you.
