Encore release July 8, 2017.

A high school track-and-field athlete in Kentucky decides to skip the state championship rather than run with race number 666.

We discuss Denise Spellberg's book Thomas Jefferson's Qur'an: Islam and the Founders, which explores what Enlightenment thinkers thought about Islam and how that influenced the Founding Fathers' opinions on religious freedom (available in hardcover and for Kindle).

Finally, the Supreme Court hears Greece v. Galloway. The Court's ruling next year could shape how city and county governments handle prayer before public meetings.
