N. Korea, Gay Seat Belts, and Legalized Weed


U.S. intelligence now believes that North Korea—currently under the rule of a despicable, evil, irrational dictatorship—has capability to mount a nuclear warhead on an intercontinental ballistic missile. One of President Trump's evangelical advisers made headlines when he said that the president had been anointed by God to “take out” Kim Jong Un by “by any means possible.” Our hosts explain that, while the threat from North Korea is real and serious, “any means possible” is not a Christian response. Dutch airline KLM tweeted a picture of three pairs of rainbow colored seatbelts with the caption, “It doesn’t matter whom you click with.” One of the pairs had two mail ends of the seatbelts, another had two female ends, and the final pair had a male and a female end. The company evidently missed the irony, but their ad is a surprisingly accurate commentary on the delusion at the heart of the LGBT movement. Finally, Jeff Hunt, Vice President of Public Policy at Colorado Christian University wrote an op-ed at USA Today warning Americans not to legalize marijuana nationally. He cites the drug's “devastating” effects in his home estate, and warns “this is nothing we wish upon the nation.”
