Episode 77: ‘Communion’ (Sister Penny Costal)

Will God still love me if I’m a heathen sinner? This week, Sister Penny Costal of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence tells her true story of forbidden love in the deep South. As a young boy growing up in a small, religious Mississippi town, she was used to being oppressed by the First Baptist Church’s pastor, Brother Evans - after all, it was the 60’s. But when grandmother Sarah Lucy comes home one Sunday to recount the preacher’s ‘God hates Gays’ sermon, Penny bursts out of the closet and with the help of her young Methodist lover, she enacts her revenge. Hey, what’s that behind the pastor’s choir pit?  You might go to Hell for listening to this episode - oh, and Happy LGBTQIA+ Pride month! #Redemption #LoveWins
