Last week, the Biden Administration put forth a plan to forgive at least $10,000 of student loan debt to those making less than $125,000. It's controversial to say the least and a recent Time Magazine commentary by William J. Barber II and Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove put forth the notion that debt forgiveness is Christian and is what Jesus would do. Lawrence Reed of the Stream disagreed with that notion and Gus reads and reflects on his article. He then takes it to the listeners and asks them if forgiveness billions of dollars of student debt, which will be transferred to the taxpayer, is what Jesus would want us to do.
Later, Gus does a Catholic news roundup, which includes a Connecticut elementary school assistant principal being caught on tape saying he won't hire Catholics, the Indiana Supreme Court siding with the Archdiocese of Indianapolis in their dismissal of a teacher involved in a same-sex marriage and the USDA begrudgingly exempting religious schools from an LGBTQ+ rule that threatened a school lunch program.
