From Saturday April, snap up one of the balcony seats still available for our first ever official Irreverend conference!
In this episode Church of England vicars Thomas Pelham and Jamie Franklin get together to offer a spiritual perspective on current events, this week taking our Scriptural reflection from a heavenly vision in Revelation 7 and moving on to discuss Will Smith's assault upon Chris Rock at the Oscars - Was the ensuing reaction an example of "racism in plain sight" as was claimed in The Guardian this week? - a follow up on last week's discussion on Dave Rubin's surrogacy announcement including a story of a lesbian couple whose surrogacy turned out to be a boy instead of a girl . In woke corner, the BCC has been forced to re-adopt the word "women" after it tried to get away with "people who were assigned female at birth" and Glasgow City Council is considering desecrating a statue of influential abolitionist David Livingstone because of his alleged links with the slave trade. We also spoke about an article in which an anonymous vicar's wife accused the Church of England hierarchy of not giving clear moral guidance on significant issues.
