In our latest podcast, Jessica and I discussed the past week in politics and atheism.
We talked about:
— Our thoughts on the Democratic National Convention. (0:22)
— Evangelist Franklin Graham said there was an “absence of God” during the DNC. What was he watching?! (6:29)
— Florida State Rep. Kim Daniels, one of the worst Democrats in the country, lost her primary. Thank goodness! (16:55)
— Broadcaster Thom Brennaman said WHAT during a broadcast? (20:53)
— A former LGBTQ-themed talk show host hurled anti-LGBTQ slurs at someone who told him to wear a mask. (27:41)
— Should this Catholic mother have disconnected the internet to punish her atheist son? (30:14)
— Rep. Rashida Tlaib has joined the Congressional Freethought Caucus! (38:00)
— The likely QAnon congressional candidate from Georgia once tried to get two Muslim congresswomen to retake their oaths on the Bible. (42:13)
— Can evangelicals convince other Christians to follow the science when it comes to COVID? (47:16)
— Ark Encounter is planning a Christian music festival. Like everything they do, it’s underwhelming. (53:27)
— Singer James Blunt once got scurvy from eating only meat to prove his manliness. Go vegetarian, everyone. (56:00)
