Glenn welcomed Vince Flynn, author of Kill Shot, to radio this morning. They discussed Flynn's new book, his recent health problems, as well as the Obama administration.
"Vince has been one of the most amazing men fighting a brutal, awful disease and has had now, I believe, 40 radiation treatments. Cancer has eaten away at his hip. I know Vince wouldn't want me to dwell on this, but he has been in extraordinary pain and has handled it with such amazing grace, as has his wife, and dignity, and has‑‑ has become a better man, and he was a good man to begin with," Glenn said in his intro.
Flynn said of his diagnosis, "You wake up, and for me, it was not too long did I notice this, couple weeks, you realize I got to keep living. No matter how bad you think you have it, there's always‑‑ always somebody who's got it way, way worse."
"I probably got another three, four years of treatment, but my doctor down at Mayo is very positive. He thinks I can beat this, and you know, the weird deal is two years ago, there was no cure for what I've got. Occasionally guys would beat it. Guys who‑‑ it's kind of an interesting game plan here. Guys who stay very positive, get very physically active, change their diet. I know you've done that and you really got to focus on your spiritual and physical health and these guys would go on and they would live 15, 20 years and some of them would just beat it."
"You have been so inspiring to me, the way that you have handled this and renewed your faith and put things in order. The way you handled it with your family, it's amazing," Glenn told him.
Glenn shifted topics to the recent controversy in the Catholic Church and the Obama administration requiring them to go against their faith and have Catholic business pay for birth control.
Flynn said, "I'm just so incensed by this idea that, you know, that these people on the left that are all into choice, all of a sudden are going to dictate that the Catholic church get into the separation of state and church and everything, that they're going to dictate that they must provide this for people who are into choice. You know what, if you want to take birth control, I don't care. It's your business. Go take it. But do not force a religious institution to provide something that is against their tenets."
