Prager H3: YouTube and Twitter have been flooded with anti-American rants in response to the new Prager U course.

Prager H2: You may support the redefinition of marriage, but you should be very unhappy on how it was imposed on the American people… The liberals of the Supreme Court have turned this branch of government into a super-legislature… The Pope’s encyclical on Global Warming is very foolish, and worse…
Prager H1: Dennis returns from his listener cruise to Europe. A lot happened – none of it good – while he was away: Supreme Court rulings on ObamaCare and same sex marriage, the massacre of church members in Charlotte, South Carolina, the massacre in Tunisia. He comments on all.
