Jessica and I spoke about several stories from the past week involving religion and politics.
— “Top evangelicals” are not backing away from Donald Trump, no matter what the headlines suggest. (2:11)
— A restaurant in Virginia refused to serve members of a Christian hate group. Is that religious discrimination? (13:15)
— An atheist delivered an invocation in Lake County, Florida… only to be followed by a Christian giving his own prayer as a sort of correction. (29:29)
— SPONSOR: Check out Elle the Humanist, an introduction to Humanism for young readers! Using this link or the code “friendlyatheist” will get you 10% off anything on the website! (37:04)
— Actor and evangelist Kirk Cameron is pretending public libraries are censoring him for not hosting events for his new book. (38:30)
— Matt Chandler, a megachurch leader with a history of downplaying sexual abuse, returned to the pulpit after his own scandal, but he’s not offering any details about what happened. (49:11)
— Uber and Lyft allow drivers to preach at riders, setting up a very uncomfortable and potentially dangerous situation. (1:04:23)
— Will Democrats notice that non-religious voters helped tip the scales in their favor during the midterms? (1:12:15)
