Podcast Ep. 328: Should Statues of White Jesus Come Down?

— Should statues of “white European” Jesus be taken down? (18:40)

— A Republican senator cited J.K. Rowling when voting against an LGBTQ rights bill. (33:38)

— Mississippi wants to replace its racist flag with a religious one. And here’s a Roman Mars video about flags! (36:30)

— A Catholic Church fired a married lesbian because it remembered how Catholicism works. (42:00)

— A couple of anti-maskers in Florida don’t want mandates that get in the way of God’s Wonderful Breathing System. (56:25)
