Ep. 131: Boy Scouts Settle, Lutherans Elect Transgender Bishop, United Methodists Sue
On today’s program, a controversial pastor has been banned from Twitter, and the Boy Scouts have reached a massive $1.8-billion agreement with sexual abuse victims, but will it hold up? We begin today with news that the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America installed its first openly transgender bishop in a service held in San Francisco’s Grace Cathedral last Saturday. And the United Methodist Church is suing one of its own congregations.
The producers for today’s program are Rich Roszel and Steve Gandy. We get database and other technical support from Cathy Goddard, Stephen DuBarry, and Casey Sudduth. Writers who contributed to today’s program include Christina Darnell, Rod Pitzer, Kim Roberts, Steve Rabey, Randall Chase, Anne Stych, and Bob Smietana.
Until next time, may God bless you.
