" And this week's religion roundup, an AP investigation and covers abuse reporting failures in the Mormon church, a Christian flag flies over Boston and Iraq's Yazidi community commemorates a tragic decade on stage. Three of 6 children who accused their father of sexual abuse are suing the Mormon church for not going to authorities and letting the abuse go on for 7 years. It didn't stop. The eldest daughter of Paul Douglas Adams says when she reported abuse on a phone helpline, it was kept within the church. It didn't go away. They just let it keep happening. AP investigative reporter, Michael resendez, says the Arizona case follows a pattern found in other states. The Associated Press has received nearly 12,000 pages of sealed records from another child sex abuse case in West Virginia, which show that the helpline stands at the center of an elaborate system to divert child sex abuse complaints away from law enforcement. And instead send them to attorneys for the church who may cover up that abuse, leaving children and victims in harm's way. Attorneys for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints say church officials feel they were constrained by confidentiality rules. To lay at the feet of these bishops, the blame for that is absurd and it's wrong. Arizona's child sex reporting law says anyone who reasonably believes a child has been abused or neglected has a legal obligation to report the information. The Christian flag that became the focus of a free speech legal battle that went all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court has been raised outside Boston city hall. The flag raising took place about three months after the Supreme Court ruled unanimously that the city unjustly discriminated when it refused to fly the banner in 2017. Artists from the Yazidi community of Iraq commemorated their tragedy during a stage performance in Iraq's Kurdish region. It has been 8 years since the lives of the Yazidis were torn apart by Islamic State militants. The United Nations has called the attacks a genocide. I'm Walter ratliff.

"This is Bloomberg law with June grosso from Bloomberg radio And with that I would like to formally raise the flag and begin Boston pride week The LGBT pride flag is just one of the many flags that you may see flying over Boston city hall What you won't see is the flag of a Christian group called camp constitution The city has refused to allow the group to display its flag which features a red Christian cross on a blue background The first circuit court of appeal said that was okay But the Supreme Court has decided to take another look at the case My guest is Richard Garnett a professor at Notre-Dame law school and director of the Notre-Dame program on church state and society Rick why do you think that justice is took this case Well there's an old joke but it's not really a joke that the justices usually don't grant review if they're going to affirm So my reading is that the justices or at least substantial number of the justices believe that the decision below was inconsistent with the court's precedence on free speech in public forums and on the so called government speech doctrine So my prediction is that they took the case in order to correct the lower court's decision and to make clear that in a public forum religious speech by private citizens is constitutionally protected The Christian groups argument is that the flagpole is a designated public forum So they have First Amendment rights Tell us more about that Obviously the government owns a lot of property And when we talk about government property we're not just talking about land the idea of a forum has been extended to all kinds of speech media so it could include a bulletin board or something like a flagpole as we've seen here And the court has developed actions over the last decades saying that once the government opens up space for private expression it can't discriminate against private expression on the basis of the expressions viewpoint So even though it's on public property and even though generally speaking the government gets to manage its own property Once the government designates a space as being for the purpose of private speech it then can't discriminate and what the Christian group is saying here is that the exclusion of their flag from this designated form which was the flagpole and display program That constituted discrimination against religious speech and that that kind of discrimination is not justified by the establishment clause and it's not permitted by the free exercise clause And what is Boston arguing in response to that The other argument draws on the so called government speech doctrine And that is that when the government is speaking for itself it's allowed to choose its own messages So there have been cases for example when a group wanted to put up a religious symbol on public property and they said look there's some other monuments on this property like the ten commandments So you can't discriminate against us You have to allow our message to be there too in the court said no that wasn't a designated forum That was the government speaking for itself So this is the kind of thing that law professors love to write exams about how do you distinguish between cases where the government is speaking for itself on its own behalf from cases where the government has just opened up space for private speech So in this instance the counterargument that no the decision about what to display on the flag pole That's the government speaking for itself Therefore it's allowed to pick and choose and it doesn't have to display religious speech if it doesn't want to So it will be a fun little exercise in deciphering Supreme Court doctrine and drawing fine distinctions But the lower court had agreed with the government that this did not violate the Christian groups free speech rights The Boston city flag includes the city seal which features a Latin inscription that means God be with us as he was with our fathers Yeah What's the distinction Because the name of God is mentioned on our money in our courtrooms So where are they draw the line The short answer is there isn't a line as you point out the government is permitted and does use religious terminology and symbols all the time And the courts have made it pretty clear that the mere fact that the government does that doesn't violate the establishment clause So the city of Los Angeles which is named after Jesus mother doesn't have to change its name nor does the city of Sacramento or the city of St. Augustine and so on And lots of times there will be historical seals and symbols that contain religious imagery There's the ten commandments on the wall of the Supreme Court room itself There is no bright line test in years past with the court has asked trying to decide whether the use of a symbol goes too far is whether the use of that symbol would be perceived by the reasonable person as the government's endorsing of religion But there's been a lot of criticism of that endorsement approach because it also doesn't seem to have a bright line I mean what's the difference between acknowledging religion's role in our history on the one hand and endorsing it in a coercive or establishment type way on the other So the Boston flag there have been lawsuits by various secularist groups or ATS groups that have tried to say that various cities flags and seals are unconstitutional Usually courts don't accept those challenges usually they just defer to history and practice and so on And you think that the first circuit was incorrect in saying that it was government speech Well I'm guessing that a.

"So i'm gonna take my hats. It was very cool. without any scrutiny whatsoever. He just merely had to assert his genuine religious objection which he did. And we concurred with that So i didn't after seven page thing in the end it was so funny which brian festa. Our lawyer friend said. Don't don't give them more than you absolutely have to work for us. So and i think that they use this this religious they use they turn the first amendment on its head. They're saying that main can't give its religious schools because that would violate the first amendment but in my mind that discriminates against religion and would violate the first amendment. But furthermore i do not believe that. The first amendment applies to states. They read it that way. Because of the fourteenth amendment the first amendment says congress shall not establish religion. This isn't congress religion and then in boston. Boston city hall allows some flags to fly. That are private that are fun or whatever but not if they're religious so they discriminate against religions in the name of the first amendment. And i think that's backwards interesting. I wonder phil. Discriminating as a science flag seconds is invented and people think yes. Asia's man's scientism priests of the electron microscope.

"Have you here for having me so. I do find boston inscrutable. I can never figure out reality when they're so let's just walk through this a little bit. First of all how the to democrats are running against one another a november general election shore. So we have nonpartisan elections here and everybody will tell you that they are a democrat in this case back to different flavors of democrats both of those women that you mentioned our city counselors and the counselors typically a grooming ground for political leadership in boston. Who was first elected in twenty thirteen. Asaba george in twenty fifteen and they've been part of this shift that's been happening on the council. That's brought boston. It's most diverse. it's majority women and majority people of color in a lot of ways. It makes sense that these are the two women that were seeing. They are both at large councilor so they campaign in a large pool of candidates. Similar to how a primary election works and in the last two election cycles both of these women got the most votes in their election cycle so they were already popular. they already had citywide. Following people knew their names. And this is how we see them. Emerging as competitors for the november general so talk about these two different flavors of democrat. One one is a bit to the left and was a bit more moderate. At least that's how they've been framed. Is that right. That's the most popular framing that. We're seeing now. Although both women take issue with the characterizations as woo gets described as progressive dialing. Just because she champions things like free transportation and a local green new deal to address climate. Change asaba george. People characterized her as a moderate because she was the only candidate in the entire field who was opposed to defunding or reallocating of police resources. So while the rest of the people in the field were saying they're open to figuring out a way to get more money to things like nonprofit groups and community based organizations asaba. George has always said no. I support the police. She's gotten the endorsement of the former police commissioner and she campaigns on things like adding more officers to perform all right syria. So let's talk a little bit more about these issues. You kind of laid out a couple that allow voters characterize these candidates in particular ways but what. What are the top issues that boston. Voters are saying they're concerned about. They want their next mayor to address. Jikei shen has really risen as a top issue for voters here. It's one that i think. Both of these candidates has a advantage to campaign on because they're both really proud mothers who make a big deal about being moms and moms with students in bpm schools in the case of his soppy george the more moderate of the two. She's a former teacher and was for more than a decade. And i think that if you are a single issue. Voter education is your. Do who better to fix the schools than someone who has in classroom experience now. Can you talk about voter turnout during the election. I know this was a primary kind of an odd time but my understanding is that turnout was pretty. Low is an issue played political figures of austin free year years. Only about a quarter of the city's eligible voters cast ballots in the preliminary election and turnout was highest in the most conservative sections of the city more wider more affluent sections in the city. Those are the more reliable voters at the most common explanation. That i've heard for this is just that municipal elections happen in off year so last year during the presidential we saw i think about sixty eight percent of voters come out but this time again it was just a quarter and people always say they need to move elections to coincide with presidential ones and that analysis of needing to move elections to coincide with presidential ones is typically an argument made by democrats in places where there's kind of a partisan split or it's made by folks who are really making an argument specifically about the diversity of possible candidates that we see people who are more working class who are more likely to live in poverty younger people black and brown people much more likely to vote in presidential years than in the off year cycles. So here you've got to women No matter what. This is going to be a historic choice. Is that low turnout likely to push Sort of towards one of these women or the other given this case you're not talking about necessarily diversifying between them. That's a great question. I think the short answer is that we're going to have to wait and see. we have seen. The candidates already turned their attention to voters in the majority black and brown precincts who overwhelmingly came out for one of the candidates that did not advance into the election. And it's up to them. I think to activate those folks and see if they can roll them in an increase turnout right. So none of the black women candidates ma made the final cut including the current acting. Mayor kim janey. Are you hearing anything from blockbuster neans about this. Yeah yeah i am. There are a lot of folks though not all of course because black people are not a monolith there are guest course who knew but there are a of folks who were really motivated at the prospect of having a duly elected black woman to lead the city of boston. It's tied to the city's history of racism. Most vividly seen footage of what it was like win. Forced desegregation began here. And i'm not sure that that folks have ever really had a chance to publicly wrestle with Here and i think that prospects of a black woman mayor made a pathway for talking about it openly It's an interesting point that you know on the one hand This question of education is the top of voters minds and there was this kind of moment where we thought. Oh my goodness. Is boston going to russell with education with a black mayor given their particular history. I guess we will have to wait and see if that particular historic possibility. Reemerges at some future date Obviously we're gonna continue to follow the the mayoral race. We hope that you will come back and hang out with us again.

"Nissan. My husband signed a brief men and throughout the past few years i would honest to god say that the morale from the police has been so terrible because the not just the politicians the public in general their their attitude towards policeman is just terrible now. you know this could be an important issue. Maybe not the defining issue this election but given that a nissan georgia's among the candidates vying for for second place. Michelle expected to to make it to the final two for the general election november. I'm interested in seeing how this issue of police reform shapes up anisa inside. George getting the endorsement of former police. Commissioner really gross. Excuse me for example but then on the other hand. The other major candidates for the candidates have all spoken about police reform andrea campbell for one has talked about reallocating ten percent of things like mountain intervention. So it'd be interesting to see how that that one issue kind of plays out as we figure out the final two candidates can be. This does get more and more interesting as we go along you our reporters simone. We will continue. Follow this with you. thanks so much. Thanks for having me on so joining us now. For an update on how the day's going is massachusetts. Secretary of state bill galvin secretary galvin. Nice to talk to you. Welcome back to radio boston. Pleasure thank you so yesterday. You predicted about one. Hundred thousand people will vote in the boston. Preliminary election today. It's about a twenty five percent. Turn out what made you arrive at that number. And i can you tell us how that would compare to sort of average turnouts in other preliminary election. So let me start by saying it's a best estimate or guess if you want The complications are the measuring. The level of interest in the uniformity of the level of interest across the city is is very difficult. The other in a positive complication. If you wanna call it that is the opportunity for people vote by mail which in previous municipal elections in boston. We did not have. it's awful. That will increase the turn out. So i made that projection yesterday of one hundred two hundred ten thousand believing that despite that i didn't see the intensity and some of the request for instance the number of requests for or vote by mail was about forty six thousand versus sixty thousand last year for the state primary and in september so But i'm still optimistic. I hope to be wrong. But at the moment i don't think i am. It's very hard to measure exactly what's happening because once again even though we know how many vote by mail ballots were requested and we have some idea how many have been returned. They're in the process of being returned to people. Must return them by eight o'clock tonight to make sure they counted in fact we've been urging irish yesterday. If you have a vote by mail ballot do not put it in the mail. I said yesterday. Bring it to a dropbox or boston city hall. That having been said the the three the twelve noon numbers that we had from the city was thirty..

"You can't just like stay home and clean your house or garage right. You have to do something. That is just purely pleasurable. Whatever those for you and everybody's definition of pleasure is different. Some people want to go really hardcore on vacation. You know they wanna hike a million miles or they wanna serve for ride bikes or horses. Other people just want to sit in a chair and stare out some water. Whether it's a pool or beach there are people that really enjoy taking a theme park vacations and people who really enjoy a cabin in the woods with no wi fi vacations. The vacation that's going to keep you alive is the vacation that speaks most directly to your heart and when you take that vacation it needs to last a week a whole week because it's that one week Makes you feel less tired less stressed. You're in a better mood. You're more energized. And that's the time that helps heal your body which is dying from all the stress that we all experience in this world and so just four days like an a long weekend or something is not enough. According to this they well for. It's better than nothing provided that you're not spending those four days cleaning out the basement like your vacation is not just what they're saying. Bob is a vacation. Can't just time off from work. It has to be playful and pleasurable and fund doesn't have to be expensive but it has to be relaxing. That's the word so one of the things that that is being looked at especially by big companies that have kind of progressive ideas about how to treat the human beings that work there is Finding ways to help employees take those kinds of vacations so that they come back healthier and energized ready to work for employers. That just don't give a damn about mood or your feelings. Healthy employees don't cost you so much in health benefits and insurance so that to you know what i don't think is vacation and yet it masquerades as a vacation and i'm i'm not denying that it has to happen. I'm not denigrating people. Who do it. Because i did it year after year after year and that is getting in a car and driving five hours to a a mountain area or usually a beach area maybe more than five hours and hauling little kids down to the beach until they start complaining and they they wanna now there too hot and where they want to go in the pool or they don't want to take a nap or they don't want to stay with the babysitter. So that mom and dad can go out to a movie or whatever. Those years are not vacations. That's hard work. If you're doing you feel like you have to.

I just want to tell you one story yesterday was the 40th anniversary of Ronald Reagan being shot by David Hinckley and I was in Boston City Hall at the time. I still remember it and I was, you know, obviously. Very, very worried about the president had voted for him in the previous election, but there was something else that was bothering me that day. You wouldn't see was supposed to be playing Indiana that night in the national championship basketball game. Was wondered if they were going toe postpone the game and there was another way were up in the press room. There was a guy from the global was also you and see guy were big you and sea fans and both of a slut. Dean Smith and the heels had Indiana and Bobby Knights number Why did we get a wrong number? Reagan got shot, and Carolina got smoked by Indiana that night. But anyway, there was a great story in the Washington Post about the day it happened today. But believe it or not, The Washington Post. The agent who probably saved the Ronald Reagan's life was a guy named Jerry Parr, and he was one of pushed him into the car after the shooting. Reagan apparently didn't even know he was shot or just thought he was having trouble breathing, and he wasn't bleeding from a wound, but so they were going to drive him back to the White House. But anyway, this guy Jerry Parr, It was nine years old in 1939 and his father took him to the movies. And you know what the movie they saw was code of the Secret Service. And do you know who the star of the movie code of the Secret Service was? It was a Warner Brothers B movie. Ronald Reagan as agent brass, Bancroft. Brass, Bancroft. My nine year old imagination took off par, wrote later. This the guy who saved Reagan's life at that moment, part dreams of becoming a Secret service agent protecting presidents from bad guys. He grew up to become become a secret service agent. Reagan grew up to become president of the United States. The star of that move that That screen, Jim Code of the Secret Service as soon as part heard the shots that day 40 years ago. In one day, he grabbed Reagan by his belt and pants and threw him under the floor of the armored limo, ordering the driver to return to the crown. Code name for the White House. Nobody realized Reagan had been wounded. Part noticed. After checking Reagan for see if blood was coming out. He noticed he was pale and grimacing. Is it? Your heart? Par? Asked. I don't think so, The president replied. I think you broke my rib, throwing me into the car Reagan and wiped his lips with a napkin. Blood oozed out. I must have cut the inside of my mouth, Reagan said. And then that's when they decided to go to George Washington Hospital. Bullet was lodged in his lung. And, you know, you know that. You know the stories about when Reagan when Nancy Reagan got to the hospital. Reagan said, Honey, I forgot to duck. Then when they wheeled him in if he was a tough guy tougher than tougher than he sounded, you know he wasn't a fake. Tough guy was a real tough guy. And when they wheeled him in on the surgeons were there to operate on him, he said. I hope these guys are Republicans and one of the doctors, a lifelong Democrat, replied, Mr President. Today we're all Republicans. And so par. The guy who saw the movie code of the Secret Service. We visited Reagan in the hospital, and he said, Do you know what you were an agent of your own destiny? He asked the president. Reagan didn't know what What is his Secret Service agent was talking about part told him about seeing code of the secret Service is a boy and how it inspired him to become a secret service agent. The president smiled. It was, he said, one of the cheapest films I ever made. E. I love that story. 844 540 to 40 to work.
