Toxic Brand?

J.A. Franklin, T.J. Pelham, Daniel French

Church of England revs with a difference Thomas Pelham and Jamie Franklin sit down to talk about the most pressing issues of the day. This time, we consider the allegations made against the actor and comedian Russell Brand. Are these allegations plausible or are they merely a calculated attack on  Brand by a system that would rather he was discredited and destroyed? We also talked about the implications of the sexual revolution in contrast to the Christian understanding of sex within marriage and the insufficiency of consent as an absolute standard for sexual relationships.
In our new section Peak CofE we review Exeter Cathedral's decision to appoint a "Canon Scientist" to further educate the dean and chapter on the dangers posed by climate change.
And we follow up on the tragic and disturbing story of teenager ST who died of a heart attack last week after being told she could not go to Canada to seek life-saving treatment by the NHS and being deemed of not sufficient mental capacity to make decisions about the end of her own life.
That and much much as always!
