Relatable with Allie Beth Stuckey: Today we’re joined by Joel Berry, managing editor of the Babylon Bee, to discuss why satire is more important than ever and his story of finding Christ after being raised in fundamentalist Christianity. We talk about the very joke (written by Joel) that got the Babylon Bee suspended on Twitter earlier this year and why the outlet chose not to take the joke down. Joel shares his story of what triggered his interest in politics and theology and ultimately what led him down the path of giving his life to the Lord. Then, we talk about why some people leave the church and become ex-vangelicals and why others, like Joel, stay. We talk about why conservative humor is only made better when leftists get mad, and we finish off with a rousing game of Would You Rather.
