U.S. needs 'serious medicine'

Amid all the health-care hoopla this week, a few hearings took place that went unnoticed. These hearings also had quite a bit to do with health care, but nobody paid much attention, preferring to watch what one Democrat called the "dog-and-pony" show going on at the Blair House.

One hearing this week was conducted by the House Veterans Affairs committee and looked into the relationship between medication and veteran suicide.

Mr. Kovacs has been executive news editor for WorldNetDaily, a leading Internet news site, since 1999.

The book documents many surprising facts regarding common beliefs that are and are not supported by Scripture.

The Good News: Your unique book Shocked by the Bible has drawn a lot of attention. Were you surprised by this? Joe Kovacs: I was originally surprised because some people thought I was speaking against the Bible when the exact opposite was true. I was trying to shock people with the actual words of the Bible. Some people couldn't understand that. They thought I was talking against Christianity or the Bible. I need to make it clear from the outset that I am a Bible-believing Christian. I believe that every word of the Bible is true.
