Today on The Signorile Show

After a yearlong legislative battle over health care reform, this is the week we could see progress on whether this reform is voted on and starts it final process of becoming a bill. But with an election year for many incumbents and those against the bill spending millions to target those Democrats who support health care reform, will it pass? We'll discuss this afternoon.

Guest / 3:30pm EST - Scientist and journalist Anders Halverson, joins us this afternoon to speak about his new book, An Entirely Synthetic Fish: How Rainbow Trout Beguiled America and Overran The World, in which he explains the discovery of the rainbow trout and how being bred for sport fishing has altered their own original DNA and has also had some devastating effects on many ecosystems.

The Vatican pushes back hard against charges that the Pope was implicated in the sex abuse cover-up in Germany, claiming Benedict is being set-up. Meanwhile, the Vatican's own exorcist says the Devil is in the Vatican!

We're supposed to be thisclose to getting rid of DADT right? A lesbian is ejected from the military because she had a marriage license, found during a police raid.

Clarence Thomas' wife is now organizing tea party protests.

The LAPD is cracking down on sex between men in public parks. Is this antigay, targeting gay men? Do the police have nothing better to do? Or should LGBT people support the police in cracking down on those -- including married, straight-identified men -- who break the law. We'll have a debate on the show today and take calls.

And we'll also talk about the very troubling news regarding President Obama's recent interview with John Walsh on America's Most Wanted. In the interview, President Obama says he would agree to keeping a database to store the DNA of people who have been arrested, but no necessarily convicted of a crime. Watch the interview here.
