Podcast Ep. 236: The Christian Right’s Kavanaugh Controversy

In our latest podcast, Jessica and I discussed the past week in politics and atheism.

We talked about:

— White evangelicals say we shouldn’t listen to Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser unless there were 2-3 witnesses because the Bible says so, and that he was respectful after she said no. (0:35)

— A man who strangled a woman received no jail time. (26:35)

— A Louisiana congressman claims atheists are spying on students in one high school. (29:42)

— An art gallery owner found a clever way to get church members to stop parking in his spaces. (34:11)

— Three pastors tried banning books from a library’s Banned Books display. (35:52)

— An Indian court found a great reason to reject a blasphemy complaint. (43:12)

— This is a remarkably tone-deaf ad, even for the GOP. (46:00)

— The Mormon Church excommunicated a man who was trying to protect children. (53:34)

— A former GOP state senator and Trump supporter was sentenced to 15 years in jail for child sex trafficking. (57:12)

— Should taxpayers be funding church renovations? The Supreme Court may get to weigh in on that. (59:45)

— How can you criticize minority religions without being called “Islamophobic” or anti-Semitic? (1:07:58)
