About this Episode

Tom <LastNameRedacted> is a friend and lawyer. You'd think the second one would invalidate the first one, and it almost did when he wrote us an angry letter last week! He invokes the Lukan Privilege to not mention last names or employer. Tom does mostly labor issues and personal injury defense litigation, which Luke pounces on to talk about the hottest topic at his office, what are his thoughts are on the new overtime labor law for salaried employees, like youth ministers.

Then we dive into the complicated nature of Catholics who favor social justice issues and used that to justify their vote for Obama 8 years ago, only to watch the Obama Administration restrict religious liberty only to those organizations that do services and promulgate the faith directly, so bye-bye hundreds of soup kitchens, homeless shelters, halfway houses, orphanages, and the corporal works of mercy!

Finally, we end with a rousing conversation about community, life, and family, which ends the civil part of the show.
