John Stonestreet and Warren Smith start the show by sharing the good news of Joni Eareckson Tada’s recovery from cancer–and her unwavering commitment to advocate against euthanasia and assisted suicide. This led them to discuss the case of Vincent Lambert, a 42-year old French citizen who died this week after a French judge allowed doctors to withhold hydration, despite pleas from his mother and the Catholic Church. Clearly, France is marching to the drum of the culture of death.

Also in this episode: The strange morphing of the hit series “Stranger Things” from family friendly to, well, not; WORLD magazine’s report on secular feminists rallying against porn.
