Open House at the new Baptist Joint Committee on Religious LibertyWritten by Don Byrd

Every year, the holiday season brings church-state disputes about government displays, promoting Christmas in public schools, and the proper prison sentence for wishing someone a “Happy Holidays” instead of a “Merry Christmas.”

The Baptist Joint Committee’s Brent Walker discusses the legal issues at stake in these and other holiday-related issues in a new podcast. You can listen to or download it here.
