EP. 367 — 367: Joel Osteen’s Hypocrisy, Cross Coburn’s Grindr Pics

This week, Erin talks about an interview in which mega church pastor and televangelist huckster Joel Osteen explains why he refuses to be alone with women who aren’t his wife – and why that’s a load of nonsense that has nothing to do with Jesus and everything to do with male power. Then, Bryan takes us through the story of Cross Coburn, a 19-year-old gay city councilman from Groves, TX who faces a recall from office after his nudes on Grindr were leaked.
