Podcast Ep. 272: Ark Encounter and the Exploding Irony Meter

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

We talked about:

— A Christian moms group can’t handle a Gillette ad featuring a father helping his transgender son shave. (9:20)

— Trans activists got a monument in New York. (16:54)

— It’s not just Catholic priests. Nuns can be abusers, too. (20:15)

— The Satanic Temple says members don’t have to abide by Indiana’s fetal burial law. Because they’re a religion now. (22:57)

— There’s no sex in Heaven. Good think we’re all going to Hell. (27:00)

— A Texas church will pay for your wedding if you stop co-habitating, not realizing the problems they’re creating. (33:35)

— Research finds that anti-atheist stereotypes aren’t accurate. Who knew?! (41:55)

— Evangelist Franklin Graham wants people to pray for Donald Trump. I don’t recall him doing that for Obama… (53:40)
