In our latest podcast, Jessica and I discussed the past week in politics and atheism.
We talked about:
— The new Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, the one right-wing group that opposed him (temporarily), and his claim that church/state separation is “based on bad history.” (0:30)
— This is why it’s a problem believing communion wafers are the literal body of Christ. (20:14)
— Apparently you’re not a real man unless you have a first-born son. (25:29)
— Kentucky can’t decide if religious license plates should be allowed because atheists would get to have them. (27:44)
— Donald Trump‘s spiritual adviser Pastor Paula White says (wrongly) Jesus never broke the law. (33:00)
— A judge ruled against the least offensive atheist bus ad ever. (38:09)
— What did you do, Papa John? (43:47)
— The studio behind God’s Not Dead wants to make a movie about the Thai kids trapped in a cave. (46:53)
— The Center For Inquiry is suing CVS
for selling homeopathic medicine in misleading ways. (52:40
— Australia is punishing parents who don’t vaccinate their kids. Good. (57:52)
— The UK government is planning on banning gay conversion therapy. (1:01:10)
— A 12-year-old girl is working to bring a Pride parade to Buffalo Grove, Illinois. (1:04:20)
