In this episode we mention how much fun we had at the recent Maumee Summer Fair then we talk about how Christian Nationalists like State Senator Theresa Gaverone violated state rules to hijack the Reproductive rights amendment in order to lie about what it actually does for pregnant individuals in the state.
Professor Lee Strang is a Christian Nationalist law professor who is the go to guy for the religious extremists in the Ohio state house when they need conservative justifications for hurting the people of Ohio. Strang also founded a public charter school that is really religious. He also believes the 1st amendment doesn’t apply to atheists or secular humanists.

In this episode we look at critical thinking. What does it include and how do we not misuse it. Then we take a look at another church and state issue at a local school during election day. Was it on purpose?
Religious conservatives are performing school assemblies and funneling kids to church all at taxpayer expense and earlier this month the SHoWLE Board voted to ban weapons at meetings. Doug explains why.
Organized groups are having trouble with declining numbers because younger people don’t think the groups address their concerns like social justice. Secular groups should address those issues because they have long roots in the conflict between church and state.
