Relatable with Allie Beth Stuckey: We start off the week by giving an update on the James Coates situation. You’ll remember that Pastor Coates is in trouble with the Canadian government for not following COVID guidelines and choosing to open his church to all, in accordance with his faith. The jailing of Pastor Coates is a sharp contrast to another legal case in the Edmonton, Alberta, area: A sexual predator with a long history of convictions was released from jail the same week that Pastor Coates was locked up. Under what logic is James Coates the bigger threat to society? Then, we discuss a recent article in the New York Times that points out the alarming idea that Instagram influencers are beginning to occupy the societal role typically associated with church and religion. The article points out people like Glennon Doyle, who, through books and Instagram feeds, give pseudo-spiritual comfort to thousands and thousands of women.
