Gustavo's Latest Commentary for KCRW: On How OC Evangelical Leaders Are Fighting their Congregation Over Amnesty!

You'll remember earlier this month my story about how Kenton Beshore of Mariners Church in Irvine has become an Aztlanista, much to the concern of his super-wealthy flock. With the amnesty talks in Congress currently backed up due to the Boston bombings, it'll be interesting if Beshore and his other OC evangelical leaders will continue to fight as hard for immigration reform as they did before.

That was the subject of my latest "Orange County Line" commentary for KCRW-FM 89.9.

The other guy I gave a shoutout to was Dave Gibbons of Newsong, who has been even more vocal about supporting the Jesúses of the world than Beshore. Now, if they could only support gay marriage, they'd be pretty badass, a point I forgot to make to KCRW host Steve Chiotakis--damn! Anyhoo, enjoy!
