In our latest podcast, Jessica and I discussed the past week in politics and atheism.
We talked about:
— Pastor John Gray, after denouncing “pulpit pimps,” gave his wife a $200,000 car. (0:30)
— There’s a financial scam that the Catholic Church says it has nothing to do with. How can anyone tell which one’s the scam? (6:59)
— A bishop said women who are sexually assaulted probably did something to deserve it. (10:15)
— The Supreme Court’s Trinity Lutheran decision is the basis for two conflicting legal battles. (14:30)
–Southern Baptists finally acknowledged their racist past. What about their bigoted present? (23:05)
— The Trump administration is cracking down on research that uses fetal tissues even if it could help treat HIV. (29:00)
— The child of atheist parents was discriminated against by her school, said a human rights tribunal, but her parents are still jerks. (32:55)
— There are sex advice message boards for abstinence-preaching conservative Christians. (42:52)
— A new poll finds that atheism isn’t a political liability in certain situations. (47:29)
— A Christian author who said atheism and morality didn’t go together was caught having an affair. This is old news (sorry!) but a link about it is here. (53:40)
