In this episode of Misfit Faith I reflect on the tragic suicide of Anthony Bourdain as well as engage with the responses to it from Matt Walsh and USA Today. I suggest that perhaps the conservative evangelical approach both lacks compassion (gasp!) as well as fails to address the underlying structures that oppress people and sometimes drive them suicidal. I end the episode with ‚ÄúJason Makes a Wish,‚ÄĚ asking Hollywood to make the most anti-climactic superhero movie ever.
