Schuller Church Leaves Crystal Cathedral, Lands in Movie Theater The Rev. Robert Schuller's massive, spectacular Crystal Cathedral began in a drive-in theater. Now the Cathedral has been sold to the Catholic Archdiocese of Orange County. Schuller's retired and his daughter, Sheila Schuller Coleman preached to about 200 people yesterday in Theater 15 at the AMC in the Outlets of Orange County shopping center. She called it a birth day with a bigger crowd than her father had 57 years ago. Ben Hubbard is Professor Emeritus of Comparative Religion at California State University, Fullerton.
Trump's 'America First' goes missing abroad In the Middle East, President Trump is changing some policies of the Obama Administration—and reversing his own campaign attacks on Islam as a religion that "hates us." We hear about his visit to Saudi Arabia and what's at stake for the rest of his foreign excursion.
Who's to blame for the opioid crisis? Some of the lawyers who took on Big Tobacco are now going after Big Pharma. It’s all about the deadly epidemic of opioid use. Are the drug companies to blame? What about the users? Later, on today’s Talking Point: making sense of Britain’s upset election.
Janesville and the American Dream Janesville, Wisconsin is the hometown of Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan. But he couldn’t prevent the closing of the General Motors factory after 100 years. On this Memorial Day rebroadcast of To the Point, we hear what’s happened to what once was a model of American middle-class unity.

Serious violators of human rights are members of the Council itself–and a US resignation could make things worse. Later on today’s show, now that he’s into his second term, comedian turned US Senator Al Franken is telling jokes again.
