Show Notes

Snap up one of the few remaining 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 John 12:42-43: leaders who cannot speak for fear of being cancelled by the Pharisees. We attempt not to repeat their error by covering the major stories of the week: the government pushes through quickie divorce laws, church leaders including Rowan Williams describe being transgender as "a sacred journey" and push for draconian government legislation to ban the ill-defined practice of "conversion therapy", the extension of the dangerous and barbaric practice of DIY abortion provision, the cancellation of Jane Austen at the Literature department of Stirling University and Viktor Orban's historic fourth successive victory in the Hungarian election.
