"Religious freedom for thee? Or religious freedom just for me?"

Dec 08, 2017, 04:50 PM

This week, we take a look at the ramifications of Trump's decision to scale back two national monuments in Utah, particularly for Native American tribes and their spiritual lives. 

We also discuss the resurrection of Martin Luther King's "Poor People's Campaign," now being led by Rev. Dr. William Barber and Rev. Liz Theoharis, and how this new campaign could ignite the religious left. 

For our deep dive, we discuss the hotly-contested Supreme Court case, Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission. What is this case, what are the implications, and what does this mean for religious liberty cases moving forward? To give us more insight, Amy talks to Melissa Rogers, a church/state lawyer, a fellow at the Brookings Institute, and former Executive Director of the Office of Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships under President Barack Obama. 

We also made a Spotify Christmas playlist for you!
