Forsaken Children in an Age of Acceptance

Hosted by

The growing acceptance of same-sex marriage has created high expectations for those who come out of the closet. But that’s not always the case. Instead of waiting until later in life, some are revealing their sexuality while they still depend on their families. That’s helped to produce an epidemic of homeless LGBT teenagers who are thrown out of their homes to survive on the streets. Family rejection is sometimes violent, and often based on religion. Can faith be a way of healing families, as well as breaking them up?

Also. how is media coverage affecting public support for airstrikes in Iraq and Syria? Plus, did the suspension of Ray Rice from NFL football really require a videotape?
