Amy Coney Barrett receives praise from the Girl Scouts. The group subsequently received a backlash from culture after the positive tweet. John Stonestreet and Shane Morris provide clarity on constitutional originalism, what it means for the Supreme Court, and the challenge of being pro-woman in opposition to pro-women groups.

John and Shane then discuss a new finding from Bradford Wilcox that praises a drop in divorce rates during the Coronavirus. The pair highlight the leading measure, that more couples are reporting happiness in their marriage since the start of COVID-19. 

John talks about the culture's pressure to make marriage a transactional organization. He notes the adjustment in focus of marriage to working towards the completion of a project. The analysis provides hope as COVID-19 continues to rage in the current culture. 

Shifting to recommendations, Shane offered theologian Alister Roberts Youtube channel. He notes that Alister loves the Bible as he pulls literature components from Scripture and shows the interconnectedness of Scripture. He is currently going through the entire Bible, passage-by-passage to highlight the theme and cross references in Scripture.
