In yesterday’s opinion in EWTN v.

Wisconsin Family Action president Julaine Appling responds, “This federal court of appeals decision is chilling and is a good reminder that we never know when a case involving religious freedom will be in Wisconsin.

Christians need to get educated on the candidates before it’s too late.”
