Think of God by Larry Sheehy

The murder of Matthew Shepherd, beaten to death, apparently, because of his openly-professed homosexuality - virtually no one has offered a defense of this terrible crime. No doubt some do condone such, but not with God's approval. Murder, and the hatred that leads to it, are condemned soundly, in no uncertain terms, in both Old and New Testaments.

Ask Dr. Gott 9/8

DEAR DR. GOTT: I visit France every so often since my son and his family have lived there for over 10 years. I noticed some things about medical care in France. First of all, when my daughter-in-law calls her children's pediatrician (a first class one, I may add), he answers the phone and gives her advice. He doesn't have a nurse or secretary do it.

I was heartbroken, as was she.
