Jessica and I spoke about several stories from the past week involving religion and politics.
— Greg Locke’s Halloween bonfire to destroy “witchcraft” artifacts, Catholic symbols, and other things he deems evil got a heavy dose of rain. (3:50)
— The IRS isn’t doing a damn thing to enforce the Johnson Amendment and stop churches from endorsing political candidates from the pulpit. (15:00)
— If the IRS doesn’t care, should more Democratic preachers use the pulpit to promote their candidates? That’s what Rev. Jamal H. Bryant did. (He’s not a hero, though.) (36:30)
— Yolanda Flowers, the Democratic gubernatorial candidate in Alabama, made a surprise appearance this week at Creationist Kent Hovind’s Dinosaur Adventure Land. (47:12)
— While New Mexico GOP gubernatorial candidate Mark Ronchetti insists he’s not an anti-abortion extremist, a prominent pastor is telling a very different story. (56:40)
— Four members of the Jehovah’s Witnesses, all in Pennsylvania, were charged with sexually abusing a total of 19 kids. (1:07:36)
— Brazil defeated Jair Bolsonaro and his evangelical Christian base. (1:09:29)
