BP This Week: Oprah and “Bad Religion”

Plus: The Church and Abuse

John Stonestreet and Ed Stetzer remind us that the folks saying that Oprah will not be our next president said the same thing about the current Commander-in-Chief. They then take America’s religious temperature and discuss how celebrities have become such a powerful cultural and political force. They conclude the show with the tough topic of sexual abuse in the Church, and how congregations should respond to this kind of tragedy.
