Dr. Gina Loudon joins Janet to discuss her book, “What Women Really Want.” And with beheadings of Americans overseas and now in Oklahoma, what’s next for jihad in America? Pamela Geller, co-founder of the American Freedom Defense Initiative, joins Janet to talk about it. Plus: Ally Tower is a former practicing witch who is warning the church about inroads the practice is making even into Christian circles.

So You Think the Book of Mormon Is Authentic?

Greg Trimble, a Latter-day Saint who blogs on Mormon topics, recently posted on the question, “So…You Think the Book of Mormon Is a Fraud?” After some poisoning of the well against critics of the Book of Mormon (they jeer at testimonies to its truth; the loudest critics have never even read it), Trimble asks eleven questions apparently meant to vanquish doubt about the truth of the Book of Mormon.
