In our latest podcast, Jessica and I discussed the past week in politics and atheism.
We talked about:
— Eric Trump is mad Democrats didn’t stand up for God during the State of the Union. An atheist lawyer schooled him on why that happened. (0:32)
— Wait for it. Donald Trump says he’s not a feminist. (8:15)
— Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau delivered powerful remarks against religious bigotry. (10:28)
— A Texas legislator wants to ban abortions so women learn to be “more personally responsible.” (15:15)
— A televangelist says we don’t need to get flu shots because Jesus got one for all of us. (21:05)
— What does the chair for the academic study of atheism do? (26:55)
— Are men threatened by intelligent women? (30:35)
— This is how Christian groups trick public schools into handing them fresh meat. (33:05)
— Mel Gibson is making a sequel to Passion of the Christ. Because why the hell not. (40:48)
— A gay Mormon who married a woman is getting divorced because (wait for it) he’s still gay. (47:15)
— Why won’t this New Zealand church tell me if they approved an advertisement calling their pastor hot? (57:00)
— David Brooks is wrong. Democrats shouldn’t adopt anti-abortion policies to win elections. (59:47)
