Homosexuality: Nurture or Nature? Homosexuality is an issue in churches, state legislatures and even presidential elections--especially with anti-gay Christian conservatives in the Republican Party. Last year, Pastor Ted Haggard was fired from the 14,000-member New Life Church for admitting a three-year relationship with a male prostitute. Now, Haggard says, three weeks of intensive therapy have him on what he calls "the road to recovery." One friend says Haggard is "completely heterosexual." Such claims raise a lot of questions. We discuss a personal and scientific question with political implications.
What is Trump's plan for Middle East peace? On his first foreign tour, President Trump has promised "peace" between Israel and the Palestinians. Are there any details for re-starting talks that have been stalled for the past three years?
The longest US war: Will Trump send more troops to Afghanistan? The Trump White House is divided over the Pentagon's request for more troops in Afghanistan—where the US has been fighting for the past 16 years. Is there a formula -- either for "victory" or a political settlement? Is there an end in sight for America's longest war?
The Trump agenda: where's the beef? President Trump says big things are happening. After celebrating a House bill on health care, he doesn’t yet have Senate agreement. With James Comey’s public testimony scheduled tomorrow, the President today tweeted his selection of a new FBI Director. Is the Chief Executive all style and no substance? Later, terror attacks in Iran and conflicting claims about who’s behind them.
