Relatable with Allie Beth Stuckey: Today we’re discussing a few controversial topics, starting with a Pride flag spotted on the set of “The Chosen,” a popular TV series focusing on the life of Jesus. The flag was seen attached to camera equipment in a promotional clip and belongs to a crew member, which naturally drew a lot of negative feedback. We take a look at whether this is cause for concern and what’s realistic to expect from “Christian” shows. Then we move over to Florida, where an Orlando-based convention for furries (people who enjoy dressing up as anthropomorphized creatures) announced it would ban children due to a Florida Senate bill that makes exposing children to sexual performances illegal. We discuss why this move reveals a lot about the “furry” community. Then we’re joined by Florida Representative Jessica Baker, who sponsored a Florida bill that allows sexual battery against a child under 12 years old to be considered a capital offense, punishable by the death penalty. She explains why this bill is important to her and why it’s essential that we punish child abuse justly.
