In our latest podcast, Jessica and I discussed the past week in politics and atheism.
We talked about:
— The one mom at One Million Moms is very angry at “Hamilton” for including an F-bomb. (0:44)
— Conservative Christians are mad at CNN’s Don Lemon for saying Jesus wasn’t perfect. (8:05)
— Dr. Nancy Goroff, a secular Jew and Ph.D. scientist, won her Democratic primary for Congress in New York. (14:50)
— Will Smith used “godless” as a slur. Should we cancel him? (17:30)
— The Supreme Court says religious schools are all-but-immune from anti-discrimination lawsuits and got in the way of women and contraception. (24:45)
— Churches received billions of dollars in forgivable loans from the U.S. government. Should this have happened? (33:10)
— A church threw an in-person event and a girl soon died. Who should be blamed for it? (40:58)
— Donald Trump wants to build a National Garden… with a statue of Billy Graham. (59:48)
— The FBI raided the headquarters of the Genesis II Church of Health and Healing, a.k.a. The Bleach Church. (1:03:35)
