  • Flor Edwards
    Twin sisters, Flor & Tamar, never realized that they'd grown up in a cult until one day when Flor was 15, she picked up a copy of Seventeen magazine and saw a quiz entitled, “Did You Grow Up In A Cult?” Flor and her sister began to answer “YES” to the following questions:
    1/ Did you grow up in a secluded environment?
    2/ Were you under the influence of a charismatic leader?
    3/ Were you coerced to recruit members to your group?
    4/ Were you taught that the outside world was a forbidden place, and did you feel guilty for wanting to leave?
    Flor has agreed to be interviewed for the first time, about her life in The Family International

  • John Summerfield
    Back in the early years of The Drew Marshall Show, we invited a regular caller/listener to co-host the show a few times. Toshi Hunt had a brilliant understanding of the world around her and a quick wit to boot. A few months ago, another listener named Paul Wilkinson sent us an email letting Drew know that Toshi had passed away. Her death came after being married for only 18 months. Her husband John, has agreed to share her story – to share their story – their far too short of a story.
    (Feb 2012 - their first date. April 2013 - their wedding. April 2013 - Toshi is diagnosed with aggressive non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Sept 2014 Toshi passes away.)

    1/ Some feel that it's harder to believe that Bill Cosby & Jian Ghomeshi could be completely innocent of sexual assault charges because of the sheer number of women who have come forward in both their cases. So does this mean that Pastor Melnichuk from Toronto's Prayer Palace is probably innocent because only two women have come forward and accused him of sexual assault?

    2/ Considering how many acts of “terrorism” have transpired in democratic western countries alone since 911, is this just the new normal or can change really take place? If so... any suggestions as to how?

    3/ According to Religious News Service, Cardinal Raymond Burke feels that the church has become to “feminized”? He says that the vast majority of attendees are women because the services have been focused on women’s issues and “rampant liturgical experimentation”. Apparently, men “respond to rigor and precision and excellence”, Burke said. Also, the reason for a drop in men enrolling to become priests is because of the appointment of altar girls. Cardinal Burke also blames gay priests for the church's sexual abuse crisis. But Cardinal Burke, if gay priests are attracted to boys and not girls, then having altar girls pretty much resolves the problem, correct?
