Leave it to Christians to make a conversation about masturbation even more awkward…
Earlier this week, WNYC in New York City aired a public conversation about “Islamophobia” (that was taped in May). It included six panelists with varying takes on Islam, including Bassem Youssef (who hosted a Daily Show-like program in the Middle East) and Faisal Saeed Al Mutar (who began the Global Secular Humanist Movement on Facebook).
The Redwood City (California) City Council has temporarily halted invocations at meetings.
Was it because they got a warning letter from a church/state separation group, or because a Satanist wanted to be included in the invocation rotation? Nope! It’s because a Christian pastor decided to use his time to give a sermon on homosexuality and abortion… to people who live a stone’s throw from San Francisco.
Last month, the Escambia County Board of County Commissioners (in Florida) voted to spend $30,000 on a local concert.
Sounds perfectly fine until you realize it’s a gospel concert, it takes place in a local church, and the church’s pastor is the brother of one of the commissioners.
