Defending our Religious Liberty

The Supreme Court handed down a victory for religious liberty in the case Carson v. Makin.  The court rejected a policy in Maine that excluded faith-based schools from private-school choice programs.  Ed Stetzer sits down with Religious Freedom Institute's Eric Patterson to talk about this case and the efforts being taken to defend our religious liberties in the culture.
