John Stonestreet and Warren Cole Smith discuss the dubious scientific and worldview assumptions behind Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s “New Green Deal.”

They start off the show, however, remarking on President Trump’s statement in the State of the Union address that every human being is made in the image of God. Is this the most pro-life statement we’ve ever heard from a State of the Union?

They also discuss the relentless persecution by the State of Colorado of cake designer Jack Philips, and President Trump’s shout-out to Chuck Colson and Prison Fellowship for their work with prisoners and the passage of the First-Step Act.
