The Trump Administration’s Department of Justice announced Wednesday that it would drop an order from President Obama threatening to punish schools that did not allow transgender students to use bathrooms or shower facilities that coincide with their “perceived gender,” returning at least a shred of sanity to public education. But the battle for religious freedom and sanity marches on. This morning we discuss the story of a Christian business owner who was threatened by the U.S. Department of Agriculture because he dared have articles about the biblical view on marriage in his company’s break room.
