Counterpoint, hosted by Scott Harris, is heard every Monday night on WPKN 89.5 FM, Bridgeport, CT between 8:00 – 9:30 pm ET. Webstreaming and audio archive at http://wpkn.org

1) Marge Baker, Executive Vice President with People For the American Way, discusses her views on the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling that Presidents are entitled to presumptive immunity from prosecution for all official acts, the consequences for the prosecution of Donald Trump, the threat posed to U.S. democracy and the legitimacy of this rightwing majority Supreme Court.

2) Stewart Lawrence, a long-time Washington, DC-based policy consultant, discusses his recent well-reasoned article, "Can Democrats "Rehabilitate" Kamala Harris? They May Have No Choice," and growing pressure on Joe Biden among Democrats to drop out of the election campaign.

3) Lily Greenberg Call, a special assistant to the chief of staff in the Interior Department, talks about her decision to become the first Jewish Biden administration political appointee to publicly resign in protest of U.S. support for Israel’s war in Gaza, accusing President Biden of using Jews to justify U.S. policy in the conflict.

4) Dr. Bandy Lee, a forensic psychiatrist, president of the World Mental Health Coalition and editor of the New York Times bestseller, “The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump," talks about her recent online discussion, ‘How do We Recover Our Democracy? Democracy as a Sign of Collective Mental Health,’ and issues related to concerns about the future of U.S. democracy in the 2024 election.

Captive virgins and slaves: What marriage would look like if we actually followed the Bible.

Hmmm. Why isn't #Oklahoma banning the #Bible in public schools instead of requiring it to be in classrooms and teaching from it? Isn't this "grooming?"
