Good episode? Give it some love!
A recording of Prime Minister Scott Morrison discussing his deeply held Christian faith at a conference in Brisbane last week burst on to social media with quite a bang on Monday.

Mr Morrison discussed the role of what he called “the evil one” in social media, and how he practices “laying on of hands” when meeting with the public.

On this episode of Please Explain, Tory Maguire discusses religion in politics with chief political correspondent David Crowe, who wrote that it would have been better if the speech had not been kept secret, but that some of the reaction to it has been very disrespectful.
