Dr. Den Trumbull is president of the American College of Pediatricians. He is also a founding member and fellow of the organization. Dr. Trumbull is board certified in pediatrics with special interest in behavioral pediatrics. He has written and spoken nationally on the topic of parenting. He is also a member of the Christian Medical & Dental Society.

Last month on the 28th, Supreme Court justices began hearing oral arguments on the issue of marriage. For example, can states say that marriage is between one man and one woman? Does a state have to recognize a same-sex marriage from another state? A decision in this matter is expected by the end of June.

When questioned as to why pediatricians are weighing in on marriage, Dr. Trumbull's response was that family is the best medicine. It's crucial to the optimal development of a child. His organization aims to present the science behind the benefits of the family.

When his organization looked at the American Academy of Pediatric's decision to advocate and support homosexual adoption, they didn't find convincing research that defended the position that children in same-sex families fare equally as well as those raised by heterosexual, biological parents. So the reason that the American College of Pediatricians filed an amicus brief in the Supreme Court case was to encourage the court to consider the well-being of children by looking more closely at the research and discover what they did; that the research is limited and indicates that children raised by same-sex couples do fare worse than those raised by heterosexual, biological parents.

In what ways are children at a deficit when being raised by same-sex couples? Dr. Trumbull noted the following:

--Lower general happiness as measured on a scale that social scientists use.
--Greater incidence of depression and anxiety.
--Greater incidence of sexual abuse within the home.
--Greater incidence of sexual promiscuity.
--More sexual advances by a parent.
--More substance abuse.
--More mental illness.
--More suicidal tendencies
--Shortened lifespans.

Jim opened this edition of Crosstalk with news that long-time Christian broadcaster Hilton Griswold passed away today at the age of 93. He ministered not only in the pastorate but was also active as host of the Inspiration Time broadcast which VCY America has been involved with for decades.

We are in a time of great spiritual decay in America. The morals and values that were the basis for the founding of our nation and that were once held dear are being abandoned. For example:

--We've murdered over 55 million babies under the banner of choice.
--We are awaiting a Supreme Court decision as to whether or not we can defy God
through the legalization of same-sex relationships and call it marriage.
--We have people running for president on both sides of the aisle who don't
understand the definition of marriage.
--We are reading pro-homosexuality books to children in order to establish
legitimacy for the gay lifestyle in the eyes of new generations.
--We are passing transgender protections that are having implications for schools
health clubs, clothing stores and restaurants.
--We are experiencing a racial divide that's resulted in mayhem, vandalism and
--Islam continues to make gains in society and more mosques are being built as
their false god continues to be proclaimed.
--Anti-semitism is on the rise.
--Homosexuality is being allowed in our military and some want to put women on the
front lines of battle.
--Political dysfunction is growing at all levels of government.
--Marijuana is being legalized in parts of the nation.
--Thousands of retail stores have closed across America.
--Numerous churches are seemingly more concerned about entertainment than

What wisdom resides in the Bible that points to such sin, the consequences and the solution? Listeners shared portions of Scripture showing how God's Word is a powerful witness to our wickedness as a nation but that mercy and grace is also available.

Guest: Usama Dakdok

Usama Dakdok is the founder of the Straight Way of Grace Ministry. He was born and raised in Egypt in a Christian home. He learned Islam in the schools, and also studied Shariah. He speaks fluent Arabic. He began the Straight Way of Grace Ministry as he traveled across the country revealing the truth about Islam. He has translated the Qur'an and has authored the book, 'Exposing the Truth About the Qur'an.' He hosts a daily radio program on VCY America entitled, 'Revealing the Truth About Islam.'

There was a free speech event last evening in Garland, Texas, hosted by the American Freedom Defense Initiative. Called the Mohammed Art Exhibit and Cartoon Contest they were to award $10,000 for the best cartoon depicting the prophet Mohammed.

During the event, 2 attackers, who are said to have driven approximately 1,100 miles to reach the event, started shooting on the street near the entrance to the parking lot. The attackers were shot and killed by police.

Usama agreed that this was an attack on free speech while also giving examples of this process in his own experiences. So why do some people choose to respond to expressions of free speech with bullets? When some people choose to counter by showing the reasons behind such violence, why are they accused of hate? Usama looked at this incident and questions such as these, concluding that the Muslims who died are victims of the cult of Islam.

Other points of discussion included the planting of Muslim refugees in specific states and communities around America and the social ramifications that will follow; the planning for new mosques in places such as Wausau and Milwaukee, Wisconsin; why sodomy is allegedly being practiced by some Taliban leaders when it's not allowed in Islam and much more.

Guest: Sam Rohrer

Sam Rohrer is president of Pennsylvania Pastors Network and American Pastors Network. He is a former businessman and former Pennsylvania State Representative. He also formerly ran for the office of Governor in Pennsylvania.

A 25 year old black man named Freddie Gray died this month after sustaining serious injuries while in police custody. Riots, mayhem, looting, rock throwing and general chaos ensued after his funeral in Baltimore. Schools were shut down, thousands of police officers and National Guard troops have been on duty. Even Major League Baseball has been affected as today's game between the Orioles and the White Sox was set to be played with no fans in attendance as they have been locked out.

Sam described the activities in Baltimore as lawlessness and rebellion to authority; the natural result of a culture that throws off the restraints that God places upon them (God's law) while also throwing off principles of integrity, responsibility and protection of the property of others.

Sam also noted that there are individuals who are using incidents such as the Freddie Gray incident as justification for behaving in a lawless way. On the other hand he credited black pastors who were standing between the gangs and the row of police officers, communicating and exercising responsibility and proper leadership in asking those who would commit mayhem to stop.

At the end of the day, Sam believes it's not the color of the skin that divides, it's our position relative to God. Do we fear Him or do we say that we don't care who God is and we'll do whatever we want?

This edition of Crosstalk continues by looking at controversial statements made by Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, the response from President Obama and reiterates the ultimate solution that can keep this from happening again.
