The Mike Behind the Mike

Why Michael Medved is more than just a talking head.

The Mike Behind the Mike
From the most livable city
in the greatest nation
on God's green earth,
a voice is heard
speaking right words
to a culture gone left,
to a world increasingly
bereft of reason.

He's a broadcaster
with a narrow view
of religious freedom.
It's called
the First Amendment.

But Michael Medved
is more than just
a talking head.
His body of truth
animates his entire life.
Just ask his wife.
She'll tell you.

He's an Orthodox Jew
who has more than a clue
about how to
honor his family
and worship his God.

Week in and week out
Michael acts out
what he speaks up about.
This Seattle-based
partial observer
is unabashedly passionate
when it comes to the rights
of those who are left behind
in what sadly remains
a racially-divided
democracy.

He's also an advocate
for those who embrace
traditional values
who have been disgraced
by the proponents of
"political correctness"
or denied their prophetic voice
by a society that promotes
a totalitarianism of tolerance.

Far from a Rush hour,
Michael's three-hour
daily commute on network radio
finds him trafficking in truth
without succumbing
to reckless speeds
that would leave his
unseen passengers dizzy.

Although he aggressively
drives home his point of view,
he refuses to merge onto
the express lane of arrogance.
And unlike some of his profession,
Michael is not given to rogue rage.

But he is given to watching
Hollywood's best and worst.
He's a film critic
who's courageous enough
to be critical of mindless crap
that tarnishes the silver screen.
He is also willing to stand up
for a wholesome motion picture
most of his colleagues have put down.

It's true.
Michael Medved
knows what really happened
to the Class of '65.
That was his class.
Those were his classmates.
He wrote the book.
In the process
he found probable cause
to examine
the often-troubling consequences
of unexamined lives.

Yes, Michael Medved's a class act
who knows what will likely happen
to those who simply
march to the cadence
of a culture that can't detect
the drumbeat of the Creator's heart.

There's good reason
why more and more Americans
are listening to this
Mike behind the mike.
His is a voice of reason.

PO BOOKS BY GREG ASIMAKOUPOULOS
Sunday Rhymes & Reasons
Published June 4, 2009

Sunday Rhymes and Reasons is a compilation of inspirational poetry by America's pastor/poet laureate, Greg Asimakoupoulos. In this, his third volume of poetry, Pastor Greg paints word pictures that portray both the struggle and fulfillment that define a life of faith. His repertoire of rhymes celebrate rite-of-passage occasions like birth, baptism, marriage and death as well as the major holidays of the church and culture. It is a volume that illustrates the poet's love of words and of popular culture. The author dips his brush into a paint box of hubris, humor and honesty.

"Gloria and I have been encouraged by word pictures from Greg's pen that have celebrated both our ministry and God's presence in our world."Bill Gaither, Gospel music composer/performer

"Gifted poet Greg Asimakoupoulos is a dear friend of our family. His poetry blesses, comforts, entertains, and provides inspiration for every season of life."Natalie Grant, singer/songwriter/recording artist
