Brother Richard sits in as our guest co-host this week as we discuss the virtues of not knowing a god-damn thing. (Richard is brought in as an expert (ooohh, BURN.)) But first: le news. The US Military has finally done something right, the Catholic Church is once again stealing headlines for wholesale kiddy diddling, another concerned parent […]

The news this week is rich in nuttiness. Accused child killer weeps for head-wear, 26 people get some totally righteous piercings, “sorry honey, I have a head-ache” is still the only excuse that is universally acceptable, President Obama baits the trolls and a mid-western pastor draws some thought provoking parallels between the Prince of Peace […]
In the news this week: Piloting aircraft via the power of prayer; Diamond Rio: bad band name, worse lyrics; honor killing yourself to save your dad from jail; science > Texas and finally: we discuss the fact that the UK has lost its freaking mind. Not the Irish Posse, though. They are still sharp as […]
Mr. Mehta sits in as co-host as we plow through yet another week of ridiculous yet highly entertaining and/or depressing and/or infuriating news. This week: the Catholic Church makes an almost totally unintelligible statement about harm prevention, the UN get’s on Joe’s doodoo-list, Richard Dawkins is called out by a guy who was made famous by brainwashing Kirk Cameron and we discuss the genius behind using the internalized guilt of others to bilk more money out of them. Also: it becomes apparent that Saudi scholars have run out of things to talk about, the Supreme Court flubs a no-brainer and we discuss how your dental history might impact your track record handling wild animals.
As a giant disclaimer: Joe had surgery the day before the show and is totally loaded on pain killers for the whole thing. What this means to you is that this show is really NSFW since he drops the F-bomb about once a minute. If you are likely to be offended by a drug addled wanker talking about his balls, you may want to skip this one. Seriously.
In the news, Joe goes on to offend practitioners of some alternative forms of medicine, he offends Muslims by implying that they are preternaturally hypocritical, he also insults North Dakota by suggesting that they have a population of 12, he then goes on to offend people who wear adult diapers, he then scoffs at the WBC and finishes up by insulting Muslims for being hypocritical again. Shortly after the show he applied to be placed in the witness protection program.
In the main segment of the show, he promises to shut is trap, a promise that he does a poor job of keeping. While Lamar and Eli do a fine job unraveling the complicated bull-pucky that insulates abortion from actual discussion, Joe admits to purposefully saying things to piss off people on both sides of the argument. Roe vs. Wade is discussed: what it means and what provisions it requires to be challenged, Eli talks about the science behind the famous court decision and Lamar wraps the whole thing up with some insightful observations about the way we interact and what needs to happen before we’re going to be able to put this discussion to rest. Joe slips in some more conversation about his balls.
A better title would have been: “O’ Lamar where art thou?” because Lamar was maimed in a freak pheasant hunting accident involving a high placed member of the former Bush administration and wasn’t able to make the show–but we did have Brother Richard, the world famous former pastor, lifewithoutfaith.com blogger and fearless leader of Atheist Nexus roll as our co-host. Join us for one long hour and a half joke about “Saddlebacking.”
We cover David Attenborough’s recent intimation on the complexities of ignorance, religion and the environment. We also cover complex topics like: the complexities of making love to dead geese, the complexities of marrying ten-year-old girls, the complexities of covering up 11,000 molestation and child-rape charges, the complexities of the shitty impact of religion on our happiness and the complexities of apprehending felons that can polymorph themselves into goats.
And if you think the news was complex, Brother Richard talks with us about the Heads V meeting, saddlebacking, the future of Atheist Nexus, saddlebacking, being “anointed” by Dan Barker, saddlebacking, and also, we discuss saddlebacking.
