BP This Week: The Ruling Against Religious Freedom

The Washington State Supreme Court has ruled unanimously against Barronelle Stutzman, the florist sued by a gay man for not providing arrangements for his wedding. She was represented by Alliance Defending Freedom, which plans to appeal to the United States Supreme Court. The ruling is a major setback for the religious freedom of Christians and others not to be forced to participate in ceremonies and events they consider immoral.

John Stonestreet and Ed Stetzer also discuss President Trump’s performance on religious freedom in his first few weeks in office and the explosion of technology as described by author Thomas Friedman.
