EXCLUSIVE: Maine School Board Asks Church What It Believes About Marriage, Abortion, Gender Before Denying Lease

 
 
May 26 2023
 
Happy Friday from  Washington, where Democrats don't want to cut spending to lower the burgeoning national debt. Budget expert David Ditch offers five targets that might make sense even to them. In Maine, a school board denies a lease to a church after quizzing it about abortion and the trans movement. Tyler O'Neil reports. On the podcast, O'Neil interviews a pastor about the disturbing rise of "woke Christianity." Plus: outrage grows over an LGBTQ event for "youth" that excludes parents; the Supremes tweak the EPA by ruling that a couple may build on their own land; and a Texas bill to rid school libraries of sexually explicit material awaits the governor's signature.  On this date in 1868, after a two-month trial, the Senate fails by one vote to convict President An drew Johnson  of a final impeachment charge brought by the House.
