In our latest podcast, Jessica and I discussed the past week in politics and atheism.
We talked about:
— A Louisiana church that won’t close now has a hospitalized lawyer and a dead parishioner. (2:22)
— A Virginia pastor who told people God could defeat COVID-19 has died of you-know-what. (9:30)
— Christians suing the state of Kentucky for closing churches claim their predicament is just like Japanese Americans during World War II. (11:37)
— A Kentucky judge allowed drive-in church services with a ruling that read more like a sermon. (15:02)
— A megachurch in New Mexico says it can’t operate without an in-person staff of 30. (18:48)
— CBS is breaking up with the show “God Friended Me.” (18:4818:48)
— Credit card companies don’t want to work with televangelist Jim Bakker. (24:33)
— A Liberty University student filed a class action lawsuit against the school and Jerry Falwell for putting students in danger. (25:49)
— A Christian book publisher just released a Qur’an… with “Christian commentary
.” This can only end well. (32:02
— What is wrong with Dr. Oz? A lot, but maybe not as much as everyone thinks… (35:07)
— Anti-vaxxers are joining the COVID protesters because of course they are. (45:28)
