Episode 5: Kim Colby on Hobby Lobby and Religious Freedom

March 25, 2014

Kim Colby of Christian Legal Society visits Andrew and Matt at the Leland House in Washington, D.C.

Topics include this week’s oral arguments at the Supreme Court for Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood, both plaintiffs against the United State’s government contraceptive/abortifacient mandate. Will Kim make a prediction on the outcome?

Also, a retrospective on how Vanderbilt University squashed freedom of association on it’s campus. Oh, and Matt butchers a football metaphor (line of scrimmage, Hawkins, not hash marks).
