Then, Beth Allison Barr is back one year after the release of her provocative book “The Making of Biblical...

Babylon Bee says they’re being punished for speaking the truth, but are they just being mean?

Has she uncovered evidence that our secular culture is more receptive to Christian sexual ethics than we thought?

Then, French says the real divisions in our culture and politics aren’t primarily between Republicans and Democrats, or between conservatives and progressives, but between a traditional understanding of liberalism and the dangers of illiberalism. 0:00 - Intro 0:48 - Trans...
