Do you believe that Christians should stay current on events going on in America and around the world?  We do.  And we believe that you should be selective in who you trust to give you this news.  Warren Cole Smith, Associate Publisher of WORLD Magazine, joined us today to talk with Ryan and Toben about current issues, including the President's decision to not defend the Defense of Marriage Act, the issue of forcing healthcare workers to perform abortions, a possible temporary government shutdown, and the release of a Christian from an Afghan prison.
