The Afternoons with Amos PODCAST for Thursday, July 2nd, 2015. (Open Line Discussion Starts At 21:38 On PODCAST Media Player) It seems a wrinkle in a new state law could keep ex-offenders who’ve turned their lives around to Christ out of their churches.  Seems Indiana now is banning sex offenders from visiting any building on school property. Nothing wrong with that on the surface, but some churches are have schools attached to their church buildings. Or those church buildings contained licensed preschools or day care centers.  Even if those schools aren’t open during Sunday or evening worship times, ex-offenders could be banned from attend their own church.  The ACLU of Indiana has filed suit under the new Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) to deal with that. The suit involves two Christian men in Allen and Elkhart Counties, who did time for a sex offense and have turned their lives to Christ, but now can’t attend their church.  Afternoons with Amos got listener reaction to that.  Also listeners discussed the media overkill over the Church of Cannabis (which Amos called the Church of Dope) and other Open Line Subjects.  (Metro Baptist Interview Starts At 3:17 Mark On PODCAST Media Player) Also, Afternoons with Amos provided a positive example of Christian Ministry.  The Metro Baptist Center has been ministering to the least of these in downtown Indianapolis for years.  They provide God’s Word, guidance and help to those suffering from addiction, homelessness and more who live in the shadow of the wealth and power of Indianapolis’ downtown. Amos talked with Metro Baptist Center’s Will Smith about their ministry and their big holiday weekend activity.
