This week, John Stonestreet and Warren Cole Smith wade into the tempest over President Trump’s latest controversial tweets, in which he suggested that a group of far-left congresswomen of color “go back” to their countries of origin–(which for all but one, is America). Was what the president said racist? Should Christians support this kind of rhetoric? Was it even necessary? Our hosts also cover the firing of Planned Parenthood president, Leana Wen, a new Title X policy that will cut federal funding for abortion providers, and the second annual State Department meeting on religious freedom, which created a new international alliance and sanctions against leaders who persecute religious minorities—especially Christians.
