AS158: “My Father’s Funeral Was Stopped By Gay Marriage”

Yeah, you heard that right. But first, it’s a continuation of Monday’s episode with Nathanael. He turned the interview back on me, and we continued the exchange. Overall I’m very happy to have talked with Nathanael and while I of course disagree with any supernatural claims, he’s a great guy who is doing a lot of good in the world.

But now onto a bizarre and sad story in the second half (starts at 18:30). A listener, Josh, wrote to ask my help in spreading awareness of some very callous and heartless actions his family’s church of 30 years took in response to a very reasonable request regarding his father’s funeral. It’s an awful example of how bigotry can trump all with some churches.
