Irreverend: Faith and Current Affairs
A Sexular Age
Show Notes

Church of England vicars Daniel French, Jamie Franklin and Thomas Pelham return to talk about cancel culture as Australian Christian Andrew Thorburn has to resign as CEO of Essendon football club because of his church’s “unacceptable” views, and as British Catholic Caroline Farrow is arrested in front of her children whilst making Sunday lunch for writing offensive tweets. We also talk a little bit about the mini-budget from an economic and moral perspective and answer your questions in the Question the Rev, including one on whether or not the Bible says the earth is flat. That and much much more in this week's edition of Irreverend: Faith and Current Affairs!
Our scripture this week is taken from Matthew 5:43-48, "Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you."
(Rev Jamie apologises that his microphone was turned up too loud this time. This mistake will not be repeated!)
