Podcast Ep. 179: Joel Osteen’s Hurricane Harvey Hypocrisy

In our latest podcast, Jessica and I discussed the past week in politics and atheism. (We now have timestamps for each story!)


We discussed:

— 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)
