I discuss Kevin M. Kruse's 2015 book One Nation Under God: How Corporate American Invented Christian America.
Ken Ham's Ark Park is hilariously suing its insurance company for failure to cover rain damage.
In Alabama (where some probate judges have stopped issuing marriage licenses, lest they be forced to issue one to a gay couple), the legislature has passed a bill that would eliminate the need for licenses or ceremonies.
Missouri has refused to renew the license of the last remaining abortion clinic in the state. If the government's refusal stands, this will be the first state to eliminate abortion completely since the Supreme Court's Roe v Wade ruling in 1973.
The Supreme Court has ruled that Indiana may require fetal remains be disposed of via burial or cremation. They let a lower court ruling stand that the state may not prohibit abortion on the basis of the fetus's gender, race or disability. (You can still get an abortion for no reason at all.)
