Segment 1 – Intro and News


Segment 2 & 3 – A Veteran Exorcist Reacts to the LA Dodgers’ Mockery
“I was expecting a fire-and-brimstone reaction but was advised to turn the other cheek and pray for our persecutors when I called Msgr. John Esseff for his opinion regarding the Los Angeles Dodgers’ plan to give a “Community Heroes” award on June 16 to the LA chapter of Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. They are a group of “drag queens” who mock actual Catholic sisters.”  Patti Armstrong, author of the piece, joins us.

Segment 4 – Michigan Judges Being Required to Use Preferred Pronouns?
“On June 7th, the Michigan Supreme Court held a hearing on a proposed rule which would require all judges in Michigan to use preferred pronouns. They are currently deciding the issue. The rule would require the use of “any” preferred pronoun, which of course would include the most ridiculous pronouns like ‘my hero’ (mentioned during the hearing yesterday) and all the ‘neopronouns’ (like kittenself).”  Attorney Erin Mersino joins us.
