Irreverend: Faith and Current Affairs

01-03-2024 • 1 hr 36 mins

Church of England vicars with a difference Daniel French, Thomas Pelham, and Jamie Franklin sit down to talk about the most important issues in church and state. This time, we have a special conversation about the Church of England's most recent General Synod in which the Bishop of Dover said that every parish in the CofE should draw up a "race action plan" and that we should be more woke than we already are. In other news, an amendment to a motion concerning the controversial Living in Love and Faith process claiming that there exist people who do not agree to agreeing to disagree is rejected for somewhat obscure reasons. We ask the important questions: Does racism really exist in the Church of England? If it does, what legitimate means should the Church take to address it? Should vicars and, indeed the Church, be political in nature, or spiritual, or both?
This, and much much more as ever. We hope you enjoy.
