BP This Week: Religious Freedom’s Roe v. Wade?

The U.S. Supreme Court has taken up the case of Jack Phillips, the Colorado baker who refused to design a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony. At stake is the freedom not to participate in events or endorse messages that violate our deeply held beliefs. Many warn a bad ruling here could become the Roe v. Wade of the religious freedom issue, sparking a decades-long chapter in the culture war. Our hosts devote this segment to discussing the details of the case, and offer two different predictions on the outcome.
