    Direct to My Desk: Can you forgive an abusive parent who won’t repent? Why would someone intentionally crash a plane? What are the most common last regrets? What connections do atheists draw between Scientology and Christianity?

    • Description: We have open lines today and we have a lot to talk about. It’s now believed that the plane crash in France was intentional. The Co-pilot locked the pilot out of the cockpit and deliberately flew the plane into a mountain. What do we know for sure? What can we speculate? What are you hearing from the media? We’ll also discuss an upcoming documentary on Scientology and connect it to other invented religions and the atheist argument that all religions are, in fact, invented and ludicrous. Additionally, we want your thoughts about the greatest regrets people express on their deathbed and the significance of a dying person’s last words. Finally, we’ll talk about forgiveness. How can you honor and forgive your parents if they were abusive? Can you or should you forgive someone who is unrepentant? We want to get your thoughts on all these questions. Give us a call at 877-573-7825.
