John Stonestreet and Warren Cole Smith discuss the stunningly clear ruling from the U. S. 8th Circuit Court of Appeals that the state of Minnesota cannot compel videographers Carl and Angel Larsen to engage in speech that violates their religious beliefs. Another win for the Alliance Defending Freedom and for us all.

They also discuss HHS citing the University of Vermont Medical Center for forcing a nurse –against her conscience–to participate in an elective abortion. It’s pretty clear that HHS under this administration will enforce federal laws when it comes to religious freedom, whereas a certain previous administration was content to look the other way.

Finally, Warren and John discuss a new study that is setting the media on fire, a study that concluded there is no single “gay gene.”
