This is The Babylon Bee Weekly News Show for the week of 7/31/2020.
In this episode of The Babylon Bee Podcast, Kyle and Ethan are joined by good friend Doug TenNapel to talk about the week's big stories like John MacArthur standing up to the real-life grinch, the government favoring Caesar's palace over Calvary Chapel, and the riots being a myth. Doug TenNapel also talks about Christian art in Hollywood. This episode might be our most flower-bedded yet.
In the subscriber portion, Ethan and Doug spill on behind-the-scenes stuff writing and showrunning VeggieTales, and then, with Kyle, take a question from a subscriber on Christians using discernment on what media to enjoy, and make Doug undergo the ten questions!
Mike Adams passed and we take a moment to honor him.
Stuff That's Good
Kyle likes Gang Beasts.
