In this episode of The Parent Advocate Podcast we talk pastors, passports and parent groups. This week we interview Reverend Louis Mitchell, and get his take on his path to spirituality and the importance of self-love. We look at how religious freedom worked against a Catholic couple seeking to foster, the beatdown of crackers in Alabama, and a University of Michigan study that found that trans people don't experience regret from gender confirming surgery. We also elevate Skittles for standing with the trans community, and poop on the New College of Florida Education board of eliminating their gender studies program.
