Don't listen to this episode, it's just so frustrating that you'll be yelling at the speaker.

The guy's mother died of complications from an illegal abortion, so now he opposes legal abortion...This is the problem with these people. Their political opinions are too often based on blind faith rather than logic or critical thought, and then they feel entitled to force their nonsense on everyone else. And i love the Bulwark and have listened almost since the beginning, but I absolutely cannot stand when Sykes and some other well-to-do older white man sit around and opine about abortion. At the very LEAST have a freaking female guest on. i could not possibly care any less what men think about abortion unless they assisted with the pregnancy in question. I'm kinda sorry, but mostly not. It's just not their business.

Just for the record, Ms. Carpenter, there is a LOT of voter registration going on at the Dobbs protests.

As some have noted, VP Pence did his due diligence on behalf of Trump and investigated thoroughly the whole notion of election fraud, in addition to the VP rejecting a state's electoral college. I thank God He didn't try it. But really? Really?! He had to speak to an emanate member of the judiciary before being certain? He had to speak to a former VP to know what almost everyone knew right away: It's batshit crazy.

If you're gay and you have fond memories of Ronald Reagan, they must be from early childhood. I graduated high school in 1985, was coming out, and was a political news hound. The Reagans, the WH appointments, and the policies were all despicable -- not just for gay people, but for people of color as well. Ponder Reagan's history while watching Youtube videos of AIDS patients in the late stages during the 80's. I remember the living skeletons of people too young to die. And I don't find more nuance with the passage of time.

Holy cow - 1.1 million have left the Southern Baptist church in the past three years? I hate to say this, but a) good, the fewer Christo-fascists the better, and b) they have completely brought this upon themselves. I've been completely disgusted with American "Christians" since 2016, and the best thing they could do for themselves and the country is to completely disband, do some serious, serious reflection and introspection, and then come back as real Christians, who actually believe in and try to emulate the teachings of Jesus instead of using the Bible to justify their appalling bigotry and misogyny.

wow! What a ray of sunshine from my boyhood denomination and on & off up thru my thirties. I converted to RC, which was a breath of fresh air until the outing of cover up of pedophile priests. However, I don't hear political innuendo from the pulpit. So, I know why I left my SBC Church. Racism, which was prominent in Houston, in the 40's & 50's. I'm 82. Great guest, Pastor Russell Moore. If his type would have been around back then, who knows, I might still have been a member of an SBC church.

Monday, Rachel Maddow details a through line for this evil and it's vociferous minions whenever and wherever black American communities have thrived. Let's do better. Yes, we can.

Another episode with white men opining on abortion, and yet never any mention of the role men play in unwanted pregnancies and what men can do to (finally) take responsibility for their sexual behavior. Men's opportunity to weigh in on abortion happens PRIOR to conception, when men decide to take stupid risks for their own fleeting pleasure without taking a woman's life or goals into consideration. THAT'S when men's thoughts on abortion matter, and I'm sick to death of listening to them dissecting women and women's behavior without EVER acknowledging that MEN play a huge role in causing abortions. God forbid a man's assumed entitlement to the use of women's bodies ever be challenged. This country is a backwards hell hole.

Great 👍🏾 interview with Hurd. I tepidly like him. On many levels he’s an intelligent, interesting guy, but his loyalty to the Republican Party is a real deal breaker for me.

I am a moderate or moderately liberal Democrat raised in the Lutheran church who really enjoys the Monday conversations between Charlie and Will Saletan. If we would, all of us, conduct ourselves as admirably, we would be the people, or country, we like to think we are! One brick at a time, Charlie!

Actually a total ban on abortion will hurt republicans more than liberal women, in my opinion. Republicans are not monolithic on any issue including abortion. The group of Neanderthals who vote Trump may think that they have won this prize of a total abortion ban, but therefore what? That they now own all of the USA government and society including the courts??? Nah, they are horribly, stupidly mistaken.

I love the Bulwark, but I'm tired of having to listen to old white men pontificate about abortion. If vasectomy ever becomes a hot button political issue, then they can opine away.

"...may have been a little overheated..." I can think of few things I care less about right now than what two white men think about abortion.

I hope religion is on it's way out of our society, especially after the past five years. I think "Christianity" needs to go on a nice, long retreat at some remote monastery in Northern California or wherever, swear a vow of total silence, and spend 9-12 months meditating on where they went wrong, how they can make amends to the country, and whether they should maybe call it quits.
