Here is a little historic treat for you. Brother Rutherford speaks from Madison Square Garden in 1939 in a talk entitled “Government and Peace.” (1 hour) At around the 25-minute mark, you can hear opposers in the background trying to interrupt the program, but to no avail. What a powerful speaker he was!

 I heard this along time ago. If I'm right it happened on June 25, 1939. It was believed that Charles Coughlin was behind this and Rutherford called them Coughlinites. It was a big mess.

You're right about Coughlin, and about the date. It mentions him in the Proclaimers book, page 658 (last paragraph), and the Watchtower of December 1, 1995, page 21 (last two paragraphs).

I down loaded this and the wife and I listened to it this morning while getting ready for service (visited the old congregation because they have circuit overseer). The wife said "I need to here that again. Someone needs to do that talk now, people need to hear that because he was so direct." Then we just started talking about how the times are different because we are encouraged to be more tactful now. Back then they had to be more direct, forceful. But she truly feels some (most) people today need to be hit with that tornado of a talk.

Woww! I'm really glad I posted this talk (see the first post). It's turned out to be very popular. I uploaded it to a site that tells me whenever someone listens to or downloads it. As of this moment, 205 people have listened to it since I put it online Tuesday, with three of them listening to it during the last hour. Among those, 11 of them have decided to download it to keep if for future generations (or maybe just to listen to later).

Is this the talk referred to in the Faith In Action videos?
