The Greatest Religious Question:Why Are Believers Like Kings, Popes, Presidents, Prime Ministers, Politicians, Pastors, Prophets and Bishops in the Third Heaven but Not Sure of the First Heaven/God´s Kingdom? Brother Donald Sweeting
Susie starts off today´s show with a technology article from Popular Science. The topic: UK Prime Minister David Cameron´s proposed anti-pornography plan. He wants stricter filters for search engines, because he believes that many children are viewing porn online. Cameron believes that a ´´family filter´´ set up by his government can solve the problem and promises to do ´´whatever it takes to keep our children safe.´´ Susie reads from the story and finds so many holes in this absurd plan. Next, Anthony Weiner, the former congressman, now New York City mayoral candidate, is at it again. Remember why he stepped out of politics? He was the guy that sexted pictures of his penis to women, all the while his wife was carrying their first child. Oops, just an indiscretion? Could he still be doing it? Susie has a lot to say about Weiner and his exhibitionistic ways. Finally, in Susie´s ´´Try This at Home´´ mailbag segment, a listener asks for advice regarding her stepdaughter. She´s just learned that the girl and her fiancé have an ongoing three-way relationship with another friend. ´´Help, they want their trio to be included at all our family functions. What should I do?´´ Have a question? You can call Susie´s hotline at 831-480-5110.

The motivating host of one of the nation´s largest leadership conferences offers a collection of inspirational and applicable life lessons through conversations with various high-profile people. Albert Einstein once said, ´´To raise new questions, new possibilities, to regard old problems from a new angle, requires creative imagination and marks real advance in science.´´ What is true of science, I´m convinced, is true in all of life. Great questions are often the keys that unlock possibilities for human advancement. That truth has been proven again and again throughout human history, as great interviewers from Bob Costas to Barbara Walters have captivated audiences and ignited imaginations. In a world where the messages of public figures and politicians are carefully crafted by publicists and media consultants, we often receive only partial pictures and manipulated facts. The right questions uncover truths we might not otherwise know. They pull back the curtain on the wizard and give us a more accurate view of reality. (Excerpt from the Introduction) If you could sit down with the people you most admire and ask just one question, what would you ask? One Question invites you to peer over the shoulder of a master interviewer with access to today´s best and brightest as he delivers carefully crafted questions and collects answers guaranteed to surprise, challenge, and inspire. What is Coach Tony Dungy´s advice for achieving success while maintaining integrity? What advice does Malcolm Gladwell give parents about instilling a work ethic in our children? How does President Jimmy Carter suggest we continue forward and reinvent ourselves in new seasons? What does Robin McGraw have to say to women about reaching their full potential both inside and outside their homes? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ken Coleman.
