Jessica and I sat down to talk about several stories from the past week involving religion and politics.
— Why Pastor Joel Osteen didn’t open his Houston megachurch for people needing shelter during Hurricane Harvey until after he was publicly shamed over it. (0:37)
— The Nashville Statement, an anti-LGBTQ manifesto written by conservative Christians. (The statement is at 17:28; analysis is at 31:32)
— A new survey that shows many Protestants and Catholics don’t understand the basic principles of their faith. (43:21)
— A Matt Walsh tweet that was delightfully mocked by everybody. (56:18)
— People calling it a “miracle” when they see a cross or Virgin Mary statue left standing in the midst of hurricane destruction. (1:01:28)
— Ark Encounter finally (and inadvertently) shared some attendance figures. (1:05:35)
