 * Saddam to Hang: by the neck until dead by January. Sadly, the Vatican condemned Saddam's death sentence, saying his "life is sacred." For many centuries, the Roman Catholic church supported the death penalty, and did not officially adopt it's contrary position until the 1960s. Meanwhile, the Bible hasn't changed. God commanded us to not profane Him by "killing people who should not die, and keeping people alive who should not live" (Ezek. 13:19). Jesus and the apostles also upheld the death penalty, as when Paul volunteered endorsement of capital punishment while he himself was on trial for his life! Paul, who was fighting to uphold his own rights, said, "if I... have committed anything deserving of death, I do not object to dying" (Acts 25:11).
 * KS Att'y Gen. Phil Kline & Bill O'Reilly: Together are battling abortionist George Tiller. You should watch the segment!
 * Ted Haggard Fired: "We, the Overseer Board of New Life Church, have concluded our deliberations concerning the moral failings of Pastor Ted Haggard. Our investigation and Pastor Haggard's public statements have proven without a doubt that he has committed sexually immoral conduct. ...we have decided that the most positive and productive direction for our church is his dismissal and removal...."
 * Lonna from Longmont CO: Bob replayed her call from Friday, and corrected the erroneous Christian belief that we should not judge.
 * Nathan from Ohio: said his dad, an associate pastor, loved Bob's Divorce and Remarriage video, and was amazed at the rarely considered Bible verses it presents! And Nathan thanked Bob for the Bible Study Albums which have given him and his wife such a depth of knowledge about Scripture!
 * John from Colorado Springs: Bob urged John to send the private accusatory information he claimed to have about Ted Haggard to the Overseer Board, and explained that being a relatively anonymous caller to a talk show is not a good way to make an accusation. John agreed!
 * John from Fort Collins CO: discussed how the media enjoys the fall of a Christian leader.
