It’s Friday, August 9, 2019, and we’re getting ready for another exciting edition of Washington Watch with Tony Perkins, where each day we’re joined by America’s leaders, policy makers, and culture-shapers as we talk about the important issues of the day from a biblical worldview. Listen here live at 5:05 p.m. ET.

Today we’ll hear from:

  • James Hirsen, conservative watchdog on Hollywood and author of the weekly NewsMax.com column, “The Left Coast Report,” on disturbing developments in Hollywood, including a range of Disney programs promoting LGBT propaganda and a Universal Studios movie in which liberal elites hunt down and kill “deplorables” for sport.
  • Richard Mast, Attorney with Liberty Counsel, to discuss an incident in an Ohio middle school, where school officials attempted to intimidate a 6th grader for referring to a male friend who identified as female by his friend’s biological pronouns.
  • Diana Verm, Counsel for The Beckett Fund, to discuss a ruling by the 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals, which cited the Supreme Court’s recent ruling on the Bladensburg peace cross in its decision to uphold the constitutionality of a cross in the city seal of Lehigh, Pennsylvania.
  • Elizabeth Berney, Director of Special Projects for the Zionist Organization of America, to discuss a judge’s order that Jesuit-affiliated Fordham University must recognize the anti-Israel group, Students for Justice in Palestine, as an official student organization.
