John Stonestreet and Warren Smith discuss yet the latest tragedy in a growing trend: the suicide of a Christian pastor. What can do the help our clergy?  Where can they turn when they need assistance? Will the Church learn to get past the stigma of depression and mental illness?

Also today, John and Warren discuss the New York City Council’s decision to repeal the city ordinance against “gay conversion therapy” or any psychological treatment that seeks to help people struggling with same-sex attraction or gender dysphoria. Feeling the heat from the Alliance Defending Freedom, the Council acted out of prudence, not principle.

Also today: “Poultriphobia,” a disorder that causes LGBT activists to fear Chick-fil-A; John and Warren announce our next Short Course; and Gilette’s failed foray into woke social issues.
