Weekly Roundup: The Blueprint for a Coup

Brad and Dan begin by discussing Trump and why exploring the ongoing revelations of the January 6th is more than just archival mining.

The second major topic is the reclaiming of abortion as a religious right. Brad draws upon the United Church of Christ fight for queer marriage where religious leaders stated that a ban on queer marriage violated the religious liberty and leaders of their church. In this Brad and Dan ask what it means to frame abortion as a religious freedom – a narrative that Evangelicals have used for far too long.

They finish by discussing the raising of the debit limit, Mitch McConnell, COVID-19 variants and reasons for hope.
