In our latest podcast, Jessica and I discussed the past week in politics and atheism.
We talked about:
— Gwyneth Paltrow‘s pseudoscience repository Goop is now worth a quarter-billion dollars because America is an embarrassment. (0:50)
— One of the most liberal federal judges in the nation has died. He was so liberal, he agreed “Under God” in the Pledge was unconstitutional. (7:17)
— Evangelical Christians still, by and large, support Donald Trump. (15:10)
— A Houston pastor who delivered benediction at President George W. Bush‘s inauguration has been charged with wire fraud (and more!). (23:34)
— Liberty University now has a gun range. Just like Jesus wanted. (31:22)
— The Pope doesn’t believe in Hell, according to an atheist journalist who didn’t take notes and has way too much access to the Catholic leader. (37:14)
— A survey says even religious people don’t take the Ten Commandments seriously. (41:16)
— The Mormon Church finally says women shouldn’t stay in abusive relationships. (46:54)
— Who needs more representation on TV? Not atheists, according to this survey. (54:34)
— We answer listener mail! (59:45)
