The Matt McNeil Show – June 21, 2021

Hour 1 segment 1: More on Matt’s thoughts about US Catholic bishops essentially voting to deny communion to Joe Biden because of his political stance on abortion. Due to those actions Matt and his family made the difficult decision to leave the Catholic Church. He explains why and how he came to the decision with his wife.

Hour 1 segment 2: Your calls on the US Catholic Bishop’s decision from Friday.

Hour 1 segment 3: We switch to politics now as Matt is joined by Ricardo Lopez of the Minnesota Reformer. They discuss the last minute tricks and games Republicans are playing with budget bills during the last week of the special session.

Hour 1 segment 4: Kurt Daudt makes a jerk of himself on the House floor. We play the audio so you hear why.

Hour 2 segments 1/2: Matt is joined by Greg Bakun, host of GhostBox Radio (Sundays 4-5 PM on AM950), as they discuss the upcoming release from the Pentagon on UFOs. They talk about what the report is, why it’s being done and what could be in it.

Hour 2 segment 3: We revisit Kurt Daudt’s meltdown on the house floor. Is Daudt fearful of the Rep. Erik Mortensen’s brigade of supporters who claim Daudt is not right wing enough? The MN COVID-19 update. And a sad story of a St. Cloud State professor who was killed in a shooting Sunday.

Hour 2 segment 4: Matt’s sports corner as we talk about the first openly gay active NFL player and the Supreme Court ruling that could pave the way for NCAA athletes to make money of their on likeness.
