BP This Week: Weinstein, HHS, and the Boy Scouts

A major Hollywood producer and vocal advocate for women’s rights was outed for sexual abuse—a life that was an open secret in his industry. Our hosts question the authority of entertainment figures who (rightly) criticize President Trump’s treatment of women, but turn a blind eye to the Harvey Weinsteins in their midst. John and Ed also remind us that conservative Christians aren’t immune to hypocrisy of the same type. Plus, we celebrate a change to the HHS mandate that protects religious freedom, and explore what the Boy Scouts’ decision to accept girls says about our culture’s lack of formative institutions.
