Charlie interviews a Twitter friend, Angel, a.k.a. Loyal2ThaFoil (@FoilTha). Angel is a card carrying member of the Tin Foil Hat Brigade…All things unique, odd, suspicious and secretive.
Charlie interviews a Twitter friend who goes by the name of Red (@XplosiveTweets). Red is married, a mother of 2, unapologetically pro-life and a feminist against modern feminism.
In this episode, they delve into those very topics. Both are Christians, but recognize the importance of not “forcing those values” on others in the public space, and that there are other reasons, besides religious ones, to make a case for being pro-life. With regard to feminism, Red does a great job of comparing and contrasting classical feminism with modern feminism. There is a huge difference.
Charlie interviews McKrae Game. McKrae is the author of The Transparent Life and served for 20+ years in a nationally recognized ex-gay ministry, Hope For Wholeness. McKrae recently came out as gay…not ex-gay. Of course, that caused quite a stir in ministry circles.
In McKrae’s first public interview since leaving ministry, he discusses a number of things including how The Church has not handled the LGBT+ conversation very well over the years, the ineffectiveness of Reparative Therapy, same-sex marriage, his reason for leaving ministry, his coming out, and some things for The Church to consider as they have conversations around these subjects in the years to come.
Charlie and McKrae agree on a lot of things and disagree on a few. This is a respectful, honest, fun, and mature conversation, had over a few beers, aiming to shed some light on the complexity of the subject that is so often treated as “simple”.
McKrae’s book, The Transparent Life, is available on Amazon. Used copies are available now. But, McKrae is in the process of revising it to reflect some of his more recent experiences and understanding, and expected to re-release it soon.
You can connect with McKrae on Facebook.
Pale Glow wrote, recorded, and released their first self-titled EP recently. Charlie, Nate, and Jake talk about what it means to do what you are created to do, the decisions required along the way, and the work ethic that is essential to reach our goals.
Jake and Nate play never-before-heard acoustic versions of two of the songs on their EP, Blaze and Sonder. That’s quite a feat considering, this was recorded in Charlie’s sunroom and these songs are typically played on 8-string electric guitars.
