In this episode of Irreverend, 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 1 Timothy 2:-14: Paul's teaching that we should pray that governments allow us to live godly lives. In current events: we look at the new Schools Bill which threatens to change the relationship of the family to the state and destroy the basis for home education, a new study showing the devastating effect of lockdowns on toddlers, monkeypox and what that's all about, what football does when a black Muslim won't wear a rainbow flag on his shirt, Ricky Gervais' controversial comments about transgender people, Calvin Robinson's shunning by the CofE who he failed to recognise as the KKK at prayer, and much more! We attempt to give a spiritual perspective on all of this on this week's Irreverend: Faith and Current Affairs!
