"The Bible is not clear. Your interpretation of the Bible is clear."

This week, we discuss Rob Porter, former White House Staff Secretary who resigned after images of alleged domestic abuse surfaced in the media. Porter and his ex-wives are all members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, and we discuss the ramifications of all-male religious leadership when dealing with abuse. 

We also tackle the rise of the progressive Christian left and the plans for a "revival" event in Lynchburg, VA - the home of Jerry Falwell Jr. and Liberty University - with leaders such as Rev. William Barber III, Lisa Sharon Harper, Shane Claiborne, and more. 

Nish rants about the Trump Budget, we give you a couple of book and podcast recommendations, and we get giddy about the new Black Panther film. 

Correction

In the episode, it's stated that there is no public university in the District of Columbia. UDC is a public university in the District.
