BP This Week: Comey, the Courts, and 13 Reasons Why

This week, President Donald Trump set off quite a media frenzy by firing FBI director, James Comey, allegedly over his handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails. The move also inspired fresh speculation about whether he colluded with Russia to undermine the November election, and drew comparisons between Trump and president Richard Nixon during the Watergate scandal. In light of the president’s encouraging judicial nominations to lower courts, our hosts suggest Christians cautiously recognize when our leaders accomplish good, but refrain from unconditionally defending them–even if they share our party affiliation. Our hosts also discuss the rise of teen suicide and the push for assisted suicide in the light of the controversial new Netflix series, “13 Reasons Why.”
