  • Description:

    First Topic – Divorced from Reality: We’re from the Government, and We’re Here to End Your Marriage

    The decline of the family has now reached critical and truly dangerous proportions. Family breakdown touches virtually every family and every American. It is not only the major source of social instability in the Western world today but also seriously threatens civic freedom and constitutional government. G. K. Chesterton once observed that the family serves as the principal check on government power, and he suggested that someday the family and the state would confront one another. According to our guest, that day has arrived. We talk with Stephen Baskerville about the government and its role in marriage.

    Second Topic – Steroids in Baseball Back in the Headlines – Will MLB Ever Get Past This?

    Even after the revelation that Alex Rodriguez headed a list of 104 players who failed a steroids test six years ago, the executive director of the players' union called it "unlikely" that his association would follow the recommendation of several players to release the entire list. Now that the confidentiality of the list has been breached, Torii Hunter of the Angels and Lance Berkman of the Houston Astros are among the players calling for all of those who tested positive to be identified. Meanwhile, All-Star shortstop Miguel Tejada pleaded guilty today to lying to Congress about the use of performance-enhancing drugs in baseball. And next month, home run king Barry Bonds goes on trial for allegedly lying to a federal grand jury about steroids. We talk with Christian sportscaster Vic Faust about all of these revelations and why we should care about steroids in baseball.
