Hi, everybody!
Before we move to our normal spiel, I want to take a quick moment to introduce you to one of my VERY favorite new podcasts, True Crime Obsessed. I’m gonna turn it over to Gillian & Patrick to show you what they offer!

In This Week’s Show

We travel to ancient China to help save Doctor Jesus from a hand harvesting sheep rapist.

Now, grab a beer and help us test the god hypothesis — because, while Abraxus (the Gnostic’s supreme being) hasn’t struck us down yet, we are trying his patience.

Shea’s Life Lesson

This week I learned that babies are 72% water, also Jesus could walk on water. I can walk on babies, therefore, I am 72%, Jesus.

Jenn’s Actual Lesson

Did you know that the Nag Hammadi Library, thirteen leather bound papyrus scripts, are the most important remnants of the Gnostic Gospels? They were found in 1945 in a clay urn in Egypt by a farmer named Muhammed al-Samman. There would have been several more but Muhammed decided to use a few of them as kindling.

Jim’s Good Gay News

We got knives!

But before we get to all that, let’s have a beer!

  • The Brong Ahafo Regional Youth Organizer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has said that the Government of Ghana would consider the legalization of gay marriage on one condition.
  • If the Amnesty International boss is advocating the legalization of gay marriage and the right to have sex with animals, then he should be forced to sleep with a nursing sheep in the open. If he is able to do that, then we may consider granting what he is calling for. he said.
  • Speaker of Parliament, Prof Mike Oquaye has said Amnesty International (AI) may soon start pushing for the legalization of bestiality in Ghana judging from the way the rights advocacy group has been campaigning for the decriminalization of homosexuality and the abolishment of the death penalty in the name of human rights.

HL2 - Chinese Pod People - http://bbc.in/2vGFrNx

  • The Global Harbour mall in Shanghai has erected a number of glass pods for wives to leave any disgruntled husbands that don’t want to be dragged around the shops.
  • Inside each individual pod is a chair, monitor, computer and gamepad, and men can sit and play retro 1990s games. Currently, the service is free, but staff told the newspaper that in future months, users will be able to scan a QR code and pay a small sum for the service using their mobile phones.
  • Mr. Yang said he thinks the pods are “Really great. I’ve just played Tekken 3 and felt like I was back at school!”
    • Another man, Mr. Wu, agreed but said that that he thought there were areas for improvement. “There’s no ventilation or air conditioning, I sat playing for five minutes and was drenched in sweat.”

  • The blindfolded me and tied my hand. He also taped my mouth saying that he would give me some surprise gifts. But, instead, he cut off my fingers.’ Mohammed Saluddin, the Bangladesh police chief said that Mr. Islam had confessed after he was arrested in the capital, Dhaka, and will face charges of permanent disfiguration.
  • Human rights groups are demanding life imprisonment. Ms. Akhter says she is learning to write with her left hand and is determined to resume her studies. She is now back at her parent’s house.

Doctor Jenn’s Jerk Pills

The sound of millions of man-babies crying out in terror…but still not silenced.

Pretty quick and stupid story this week. Because the voices of men are continually being silenced and their opinions are talked over and ignored, I thought I would make a safe space. I bring you potentially the most poorly written change.org petition, brought to you by a man whose life has suddenly lost all meaning. Why? Dr. Who is now a 2-hearted, shape-shifting Time Lord in the form…of…A WOMAN. (manly screams of terror)

It’s short, so I’ll read it—as written. Also, the comments are things of beauty, so I do suggest checking those out.

Waiting 4 Wrath - Episode 140 - Waiting 4 Wrath - Episode 140 - The One We Fly Into A Gluten Free Abyss!

July 14, 2017
00:0000:00

In this week’s show, episode 140, we get lost in Japan taking a sexy quiz about murdering Satan, but all the results told us is that Klingons have celiacs and the Earth ISN'T FUCKING FLAT!

Now, grab a beer and help us test the god hypothesis — because, while Lakshmi (Hindu goddess of health and prosperity) hasn’t struck us down yet, we are trying her patience!

Shea’s Life Lesson

This week I learned some interesting statistics about feminism. The average school boy will go to college to get more knowledge. While a girl will travel to Jupiter to get more stupider.

Jenn’s Actual Lesson

Did you know that Lakshmi, goddess wife of Vishnu, was said to have been formed in antiquity by using a mountain and a serpent to churn the cosmic ocean to milk, out of which she floated radiantly on a lotus flower? So, basically, she is the goddess of making an entrance.

But before we get to all that, let’s have a beer!

Round Table Discussion

Mr. BearPig asked Jim to clarify/verify if ‘it’s not gay if you make a mean face’.

New Patrons:

  • DodSno
  • Joshua
  • & @CraigDaFarmer

And Craig came through in a big Patreon way for the Chelada fiasco. He was also generous enough to make a donation to WyoAIDS.org, Big Gay Jim’s Wyoming AIDS Assistance 501c3 — which, btw is a 501c3 so you can deduct your donations. also, if you mention the show in the donation note (or whatever way you like of proving you’re you) in addition to our undying gratitude we’ll send you the patreon cut of the show for the week of your donation!

We got two voicemails this week, one to our fantastic - and textable, btw thanks as ever to Dave - Drunk Dial Line: (513) 760–0463, and another to the website’s SpeakPipe app!

Shane, first of all, Happy belated Canada Day!

I’m glad you like the chapters etc, we put a lot of effort into the final MP3 file and it’s really pretty gratifying to know that folks appreciate it! I’m not sure if we’ve had Big Rock or Village Brewery - at least not on the show - but we’ll put them on the list!

Dan, who works in child protective services, agrees with our thinking that it’s much worse for a person who is unprepared and especially unwanting of a child to have a child, vs the alternative

Closing out headlines this week we thought that, given our recent influx of listeners, we should take a moment, to sum up Wrathful Studios’ offerings.

We frequently mention the Drunk Dial Line — (513) 760–0463 — and how it takes texts now, but what is SpeakPipe?

SpeakPipe is a widget on our site and an App for you mobile. It’s a great freeway to leave us voicemails without having to pay international rates or reveal your phone number! If we use your voicemail on-air we’ll send you the patreon cut of the show it appears in!

Speaking of Patreon.

If you make a per episode donation at http://patreon.com/w4w you’ll get a much longer cut of each week’s show - often in the form of a unique story or topic. Patrons also get exclusive access to episodes of 4 More Beers, wherein we drink a beer, do a story and generally BS our way through announcing the next four show beers.

Finally, we would be remiss to miss a mention of our store!

Waiting 4 Wrath.com hosts a fun shop where you can buy hoodies, T's and coffee mugs - with more great stuff on the way! The T's come in all sizes and shapes — including those meant for people with boobs! That’s right, they aren’t the loose-fitting unisex shirts destined to become shop rags, they’re quality shirts at a decent price designed to fit actual human people!

And, as ever, if patronizing us is too expensive, calling us is too personal, and buying our stuff is too kitschy, you can always take a moment to leave a 5-star review on iTunes or your podcast outlet of choice! It’s free and goes a long way toward helping us reach a bigger audience.

Headlines

All Crackers Go To Hell - http://bit.ly/2uXgk9z

  • In a letter circulated to Roman Catholic bishops, Cardinal Robert Sarah of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments was instructed by the Pope to tell church members about the correct ingredients of the bread and wine given to mass celebrants.

  • The Body of Christ, the blessed bread given to Catholics, must contain a small amount of gluten, according to the Vatican, while the wine must be made from unsoured grapes.

    “Hosts that are completely gluten-free are invalid matter for the celebration of the Eucharist,” according to the letter which was translated by Vatican Radio.

  • The letter comes amid concern that the ingredients of holy bread are readily available in “supermarkets” and “even over the internet” and not from religious communities.

  • The reminder comes following a decision by the church in 2003 that holy bread should maintain a “small quantity” of gluten.

You're A Wanker Gordy - http://bit.ly/2uXfs4C

  • Religious Right activist and former Colorado state legislator Gordon Klingenschmitt declared on his “Pray In Jesus Name” program last week that Americans would not need health care if this nation would simply stop funding Planned Parenthood because, if we do so, “God will heal your diseases.”
  • Declaring that Democrats and Republicans in Congress who are fighting to retain support for Planned Parenthood “are being influenced by a demonic spirit because they want to kill children with your taxpayer dollars,”
  • “You know what the solution to America’s healthcare crisis is?” Klingenschmitt asked. “Obey the Ten Commandments, stop funding abortion, stop funding child killing and God will heal your diseases, America. The supernatural blessing of healing is available if we stop working with the demonic spirit of murder.”

Ding Dong Satan’s Gone! - http://bit.ly/2uXftWa

  • South Africa’s celebrity pastor Paseka Motsoeneng, more popularly known as Prophet Mboro claimed he has killed Satan.
  • Mboro, a senior pastor at the Incredible Happenings Church made the claims on his Facebook page. He wrote the following to the amazement of his followers and critics. “When I got to hell there was a queue of millions of people waiting to be braai’d by Satan. I even saw some prominent South African politicians. I was so shocked because they lived like angels here on earth. I thought they went to heaven. When Satan saw me he panicked and directed his army to kill me. Like Samson in the Bible, I defeated them. Satan was my last victim.”
  • Mboro’s post was deleted after an hour when his followers raided his Facebook comment box demanding further information and asking him more questions.

Fucking Flat Earthers! - http://dpo.st/2uXli61

So how do we combat this? Well, we could use some 2,500-year-old Greek logic: Pythagoras thought the Earth was round given that the Moon was as well. Later Aristotle reasoned the Earth was round as the shadow cast on the moon during an eclipse was round. Also, here's some math. Who knew.

Jenn’s Story

No, Amelia Earhart was NOT captured by the Japanese and that is NOT a photo of her.

This past week the interwebs were abuzz about a controversial theory resurfacing re Amelia Earhart. A[ new documentary on the History Channel presents the theory that the aviatrix survived her crash landing, was then taken the prisoner in Japan, and the American government has worked for years to cover it up. It’s often referred to as ‘The Marshall Islands theory’ and was largely supported by a single photograph … which a Japanese blogger seems to have verified in the Japanese national archives, immediately disproving the whole thing.

I mean, LOOK AT THAT EVIDENCE!!

http://imgur.com/a/I3mSw

I3mSw 

So, apparently the History Channel (home of such intellectual stimulation as Ancient Aliens, Pawn Stars and Swamp People) doesn’t like to fact check, because they are airing a special this month (to add to the list of such specials as God v/s Satan & Predator X), Amelia Earhart: The Lost Evidence. From the History Channel’s website:

Former FBI official Shawn Henry investigates new, shocking evidence that aviator Amelia Earhart was captured by the Japanese military, including a photograph that purports to show Earhart and navigator Fred Noonan alive after their disappearance. Evidence includes documents containing new information indicating that the U.S. government knew that she was in the custody of a foreign power, and may have covered it up.

Well, gosh darn it Y'all, I guess it’s true! Um...nope. Tokyo-based military blogger, Kota Yamano decided to actually do some real investigation. Says Yamano:

“I have never believed the theory that Earhart was captured by the Japanese military, so I decided to find out for myself,” Yamano told the Guardian. “I was sure that the same photo must be on record in Japan.”

After less than an hour of research, he was able to find this exact photo---in it’s real historic context. After doing an online search using keyword “Jaluit Atoll” (the location of the wharf in the photo) and a decade-long timeframe starting in 1930. IT WAS THE 10TH ITEM THAT POPPED UP.

The picture originally appeared in a South Seas Japanese-language travel guide, that was published a full two years before Earhart even disappeared.

C’mon people.

Waiting 4 Wrath - Episode 139 - The One Where We Spice Up Our Bud’s Clam…ato

July 7, 2017

In this week’s show we swipe right on mining Zionist Jews for HIV on Mars

Now, grab a beer and help us test the god hypothesis — because, while Ogoun - Yoruba god of rum and unpleasantly cold, flame retardant testicles (Yes, really) hasn’t struck us down yet, we are trying their patience!

Jenn’s Actual Lesson

Did you know that rum was given to sailors in the Royal Navy mixed with lime juice to prevent scurvy? I doubt it helped their aim, though.

We got a text message from an awesome listener who sent us a cool ukiyo-e style Civil War poster, love it! Thanks for listening to the show and stay safe out there eh!

We deeply appreciates the unsolicited duckling image. It’s from one of her favorite cartoons!

I would also like to apologize to new listener Chris G, who wrote:

“I started listening to you guys since the promo from cognitive dissonance and I've noticed something: Jen and Shea have not been on the same episode yet so I was wondering if they are in fact one trans-folic fluid person?”

I apologize, I did indicate we would be recording together for the Clamato Clash of 2017, but Shea had to run away for the long holiday weekend.

Beer and Blasphemy
by CorruptPhoenix (United States)

Do you love good beer and fabulously blasphemy? Then you will love this podcast. The cast fights the good fight against religious BS while ensuring that no one has to drink horrible beer that you might think is good just because it's "craft".

Brilliant blasphemy at its best
by The_Sane_Wonko (United States)

This is a wonderful show that I never miss. Aaron, Shea, and Steve are hilarious in their own wonderful and special way. Jenn is even more hilarious and is the heart and mind of the show. Now and then Big Gay Jim stops by the show to drop a glitter bomb of brilliant awesomeness. If you love beer and skepticism this is the show for you. Many thanks for making my Fridays that much better.

Today’s episode is recorded in front of a live studio audience!

Headlines

Keep Jesus In Your Butt - http://bit.ly/2tO1STx

  • Topless Feminists went to Vatican Square where they shoved crucifixes up their butts
  • Two of them had “Keep it Inside” scrawled across their backs, an apparent reference to their anger that the Pope’s activities extend beyond the tiny papal enclave in Rome.
  • Police immediately swarmed on the women as bemused tourists snapped photographs. Covering the woman's bared breasts with coats, the cops dragged them off, with one of the women crying: “The pope is not a politician, God is not a magician.”
  • What to do with them?
    • According to the story, they need to be locked up a stoned to death
    • This is what should happen to these wretches. They should be punished just as Jehu killed Jezebel when he had some eunuchs “threw her down, and some of her blood spattered on the wall and on the horses, and he trampled her underfoot.” (2 Kings 32)
    • These reprobate Devils need to be punished just as Phineas, with fiery zeal, killed Zimri and his Midianite harlot. It is quite beautiful how the profound Scripture describes how this awesome warrior of Heaven “rose from among the congregation and took a javelin in his hand; and he went after the man of Israel into the tent and thrust both of them through, the man of Israel, and the woman through her body.” (Numbers 25:7-8)
  • So yeah, that’s all pretty fucked up

They probably should have just started a podcast...

Drill Deep For Jesus - http://n.pr/2tO20T1

  • Zion Oil and Gas is a Dallas, [Texas-based hydrocarbon exploration company; its principal assets are the three license blocks in northern [Israel.
  • Because who better knows how to find oil than the chosen people of God… who somehow wound up with the only godforsaken speak of dirt in the middle east without oil under it…
  • I believe Zion Oil & Gas was ordained by G-d for the express purpose of discovering oil and gas in the Land of Israel and to bless the Jewish people and the nation of Israel and the body of Christ (Isaiah 23:18 NIV). I believe that G-d has promised in the Bible to bless Israel with one of the world’s largest oil and gas fields, and this will be discovered in the last days before the Messiah returns and that it will be found on the Joseph License and the Asher/Menashe License, both being on the Head of Joseph (Genesis 49:1-2 and 22-26)
  • "God creates this. He provides the money and the place where to drill. Now why we haven't got the oil yet, I don't know. I have never drilled one oil well I didn't expect to find oil," says John Brown, Zion founder & CEO.

    "I was an alcoholic that God saved, took me from being in the tool business and sent me to Israel and told me he was gonna do something. Zion Oil & Gas was nothing. I didn't even think about something like that at that point," Brown says.

  • Zion's motto is "geology confirming theology."
  • Zion Oil is listed on the Nasdaq stock exchange. Since going public in 2000, the company has burned through $130 million. According to Morningstar, Zion's stock has lost 90 percent of its value in the past five years.

    "Well, I used to have a lot more money in it than I do now. The stock I bought has tremendously decreased in value over time," Barron says. "But with my belief that God is in charge of all of it and it's all his anyway, I think the upside of betting on God is pretty good."

Swipe Right To Abort! - http://slate.me/2tNFHwG

  • With the help of an app developed by the anti-abortion Human Coalition, it was easy! I saved real-live babies from the clutches of money-grubbing abortion providers with just a couple dozen swipes of my right thumb as if I were paging through Tinder or wiping a little schmutz off the screen of my phone.
  • “Human Coalition.”
  • The organization, which calls abortion “the [worst holocaust in human history” and hopes it will become “unthinkable and unavailable in our lifetime,” runs crisis pregnancy centers (CPCs) in the Atlanta, Pittsburgh, Dallas, and Raleigh, North Carolina, metro areas and has connections to more than 30 other CPCs around the country.

“Someone considering an abortion in Charlotte, North Carolina contacted a center,”

  • An “impact” tab records how many prayers a user has performed, how many babies she’s helped save, and how many total babies Human Coalition has saved since its founding.

“If you’ve prayed for a woman who decides to keep her baby, you can be encouraged that, through prayer, you’ve helped save a child from abortion.”

I freaking love you guys. I listen to you guys on my way from work every Friday and always look forward to it. Keep doing what you're doing because it works. My state got mentioned last week, good ole ass-backwards Tennessee, where people fly the American and Confederate flag side by side because these bastards are too stupid to see the irony. And speaking of Tennessee, if you guys ever get a beer from Yee-Haw Brewery don't even waste time trying it, pretty sure you could strip paint with it.

Also, Shane, your mom got that spelling because of all the wonderful drugs that go into childbirth now ;)

  • These stickers, which cost $60 for a pack of 10, will allegedly work magic on your body, including reducing inflammation, “boosting cell turnover,” and “smoothing out both physical tension and anxiety.”
  • The aestheticians (beauty care specialists) who invented the Body Vibes stickers claim their products are made with “the same conductive carbon material NASA uses to line space suits so they can monitor an astronaut’s vitals during wear.” This special technology uses “bio-frequency that resonates with the body's natural energy field.”
  • NASA told Paoletta that spacesuits “do not have any conductive carbon material lining the spacesuits.” A former chief NASA scientist added, “What a load of BS this is.”
  • Actual Testimonials
    • These are real conversation starters!
    • When I wear my anti-anxiety sticker I'm not anxious!
    • Unicorn Skin calms down my skin because I travel a lot.
  • Recommended by professionals like Mia Moretti the famous DJ Fashion Muse, Kelsey Fafase Beauty Expert, Christine Dionese integrative food therapist… these are real people with real made up jobs who know real science when they see it!
  • This is SCIENCE!
  • If you can’t trust stickers maybe a $200 box of crap will make you feel better! http://bit.ly/2tvwVUq

Once again an upstanding pastor, evangelist, television host, author, humanitarian, philanthropist, a businessman is being dragged through the mud! http://n.pr/2tvMMSN?

  • North Carolina televangelist Todd Coontz – author of numerous books on faith and finances – has been indicted on charges of tax fraud spanning more than a decade.

    • "As a minister, Coontz preached about receiving and managing wealth, yet he failed to keep his own finances in order," Jill Westmoreland Rose, U.S. Attorney for the Western District of North Carolina, said as she announced the charges. "Coontz will now receive a first-hand lesson in 'rendering unto Caesar' that which is due." The charges include three counts of failure to pay tax, each carrying a maximum federal prison term of one year, and four counts of aiding and assisting in filing false tax returns, each carrying a maximum term of three years.
  • The televangelist "promised financial miracles for people who sent money to his ministry," according to Channel 9 WSOCTV of Charlotte, N.C. The news station recounts some examples of his claims:
    • " 'You need to plant the $273 recovery seed. I'm only going to give you two to three minutes to respond,' Coontz once told his viewers.
    • "Coontz posted videos on Twitter as recently as Wednesday, promising financial blessings to the faithful.
    • " 'Suddenly miracles are happening. I want to work with your faith for quick things, swift things,' Coontz said in the video."
  • Coontz's attorney Mark Foster said in a statement "Todd Coontz has always endeavored to follow the law and to be a good citizen, father, and minister. He trusted others to manage his finances and taxes for him and was shocked to find out he was under criminal investigation by the IRS."
    • He also allegedly purchased the following vehicles through his corporations or ministry: "a 2011 BMW, a 2011 Regal 2500 boat, a 2012 BMW convertible, a 2011 Lexus, a 2011 Land Rover, a 2006 Ferrari, a 2012 Maserati, a 2013 BMW, a 2013 Land Rover, and a 2012 Ferrari." It adds that his ministry purchased a $1.5 million condominium. His corporations also deducted as business expenses more than $200,000 for clothing purchases and tens of thousands of dollars for meals and entertainment.

Prayer, Avionics and things you don’t want to hear a pilot say... http://bit.ly/2tveyyM

  • After 90 minutes in the air, 359 passengers aboard an AirAsiaX flight Sunday felt a small explosion from the left wing before it proceeded to shake “like a washing machine” for the next two hours.

  • Multiple videos were taken aboard the flight from Perth, Australia to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, showing the violent shaking and the passengers reactions. One video was posted to Instagram with the caption, “I thought I might die.”

    “Our survival depends on you cooperating. Hopefully, everything will turn out for the best,” said the pilot in a mid-air announcement. Passengers also reported that the pilot twice asked for them to “please pray.”

  • The flight landed safely there while passengers still brave enough to fly waited hours for another flight and were offered a $20 voucher, according to the 7 News Brisbane.

Profile of Dale Hemming. The man behind Sioux Falls, SD’s Feminist, Atheist, Thinker’s billboards.

For about the past three years, a bunch of billboards around Sioux Falls that speak out in a way that we rarely see in this country. They espouse that the reader thinks, and think about topics that we as skeptics and freethinkers can appreciate. The billboard campaign sends readers to several different websites,

like Sioux Falls Free Thinkers, Sioux Falls Atheists, Sioux Falls Scientists, Sioux Falls Zoologists, and Sioux Falls Feminists

Messages such as Sioux Falls Feminists Domestic Abuse Looks Like This! You NEVER deserve Domestic Abuse! You Are Not Alone! Help’s at SiouxFallsFeminist.com. (with a picture of a child or woman, cowering in a corner)

And:

Sioux Falls Atheists Millions Are Good

Without God! 98 Million Americans Are Living Happily Without Religion! Being A Good Person Does Not Require A God! Join Us! SiouxFallsAtheists.com

Evolution Is A Fact! The Earth Is Over 4 Billion Years Old! Those Who Think It Is Only 6,000 Years Old Are Still In The Dark Ages! SiouxFallsScientists.com

The man behind this campaign is a 73-year-old retiree named Dale Hemming. Hemming spent a career working for Graco, Inc. where he patented five inventions, and during his time at Graco, he always held onto his stock each time it split. By the time he retired, he had accumulated some wealth and now he’s spending his money to educate people about the topics he believes in.

According to an interview on unitedcor.org - United Coalition of Reason’s website: http://bit.ly/2tvpwV6

Hemming became an atheist in 1965, “when I was 21 in college when I read the works of Ayn Rand, which convinced me there was no God even though I rejected the rest of her philosophy.”

“I became a feminist in 1960 in junior high school, arguing against the sexual double standard (boys were supposed to have sex with any girl they could, and “good” girls were never supposed to have sex before marriage, only “bad” girls did), which made me unpopular with both the boys and the girls at that time.”

While volunteering at Women’s Advocates in St. Paul starting in 2002, he saw first hand the damage caused by domestic violence and child abuse.

While not formally partnered with any major interest groups similar to his own, he sees his campaign as a way to keep busy and use his money in a positive way vs buying cars or vacations. He has no children to support and twice divorced and no other close family, so this is his way of reaching out and spending his retirement time.

He drives a compact that could belong to any college student in the city, were it not for the car-top sign announcing that “Child sex abuse is never your fault” and offering help at his Sioux Falls Feminists website.

“I’ve got nothing else to do with my time, I might as well try and educate people,” Hemming said.

Pissed Peacock perforates pints of Perignon - http://bit.ly/2t11npl

  • This week a peacock strutted into Royal Oaks Liquors in California, and made himself comfortable amongst the wine bottles, and was content to relax under a Pabst neon sign.
  • “A lady said, 'Hey, uh, you have a bird inside your store,'" manager Rani Ghanem, recalled. Apparently, the store’s door had been accidentally left open, allowing the bird to saunter inside.
  • An animal control officer showed up on the scene to coax the bird out, but as the video clearly shows, he was out of his league. The agitated bird outsmarts capture and crashes around the store, breaking bottles as he flaps his wings to escape the net.
  • According to the manager, the bird ended up destroying around $500 in Champagne and other expensive wines.
  • He'll be released at the Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanic Garden – hopefully putting a swift end to his reign of terror at Southern California liquor stores.

You can take those fidget spinners and shove them right up your ass if you ask me!

http://bit.ly/2t0Ygh6

  • Unless you live in a cave or maybe outside of the states you have heard of fidget spinners, It consists of a bearing in the center of a multi-lobed flat structure made from metal or plastic.
  • Fidget spinners have now reached critical mass. People are attaching rockets to them, balancing them on the heads of alligators, and the heads of their penises. What’s really left to do? Apparently, the answer is glue one to the end of a butt plug.
  • Recently added to their store Fidget Spinner butt plugs are now real, and available for purchase.
  • GlowFyourself’s Etsy shop sells them for only $35 for a small and $55 for a large!
  • Social anxiety? Easily distracted? Want something that will REALLY confuse your family? Try this out!
  • Be the talk of every party, become the rectal tilt a whirl you've dreamt of, legitimately identify as that Apache attack helicopter you've always known you really were!
  • This is sure to help you stay focused in bed, never get distracted while hitting it from behind again!

Underground beer pipe almost complete! - http://bbc.in/2t0Yipe

  • An underground beer pipeline is being laid for the Wacken Open Air (WOA) hard rock festival, which kicks off in northern Germany in August. It is part of a new 7km (four-mile) pipeline network, which organizers say will make the event more eco-friendly. The beer flow rate should fill six glasses every six seconds, thanks to the 35cm (14-inch) diameter pipeline.
  • WOA is one of the world's biggest heavy metal events. The line-up will include Megadeth, Alice Cooper, and Trivium.
  • The venue is on the edge of a village in Schleswig-Holstein with 1,850 residents. This year WOA will feature 150 bands, pumping out their rock numbers from 3-5 August.
  • German media report that WOA, spread over three days, attracts about 75,000 heavy metal fans each year. Each one consumes on average 5.1 liters (nine pints) of beer during the festival. Approx 5500 Kegs of beer.
  • On the WOA website, the organizers say the pipelines are an investment to make the festival more sustainable and cost-effective.
  • Beer trucks will no longer churn up the fields every day to reach thirsty fans. The pipelines will meet strict hygiene standards, they stress.

Paramedic says deadly fires were caused by 12 gay weddings - http://bit.ly/2t0F5DZ

  • They’ve been blamed by a paramedic for fires in South Africa that have devastated large parts of the country.
  • More than six people have been killed, including a three-year-old child and a firefighter, in the fire and 10,000 people have been evacuated.
  • A paramedic has been suspended over his remarks saying that the fires were God’s revenge on the country for allowing 12 gay marriages at The weddings he was writing about took place at the annual Pink Loerie Mardi Gras and Arts festival
  • Afrikaaner Bossie Boshoff, (Bossie isn’t his real first name) said that the fires in Knysna happened only after the Dutch Reformed Church allowed the weddings to go ahead.

He wrote

Can you remember last year when Knysna was made up in pink and 12 homosexual marriages took place on one day? It was only after the election of the Dutch Reformed Church when they approved gay homosexual marriage. It was all over the newspapers. It dared god. They mustn’t cry now about the fire. God doesn’t let himself be mocked.’

Netcare911 managing director Craig Grindell confirmed that Boshoff had been suspended and would face a disciplinary panel next week.

Mr. Grindell said: ‘Netcare and Netcare 911 have a firm, zero-tolerance stance towards discrimination of any kind.

We will not hesitate to take the strongest possible action when made aware of any action, and or behaviour, of a staff member which transgresses the company’s values, ethics and code of conduct.

Mass Resignation at HIV Council Exposes Trump's Cruelty

http://bit.ly/2t0U4Oc

  • The Presidential Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS has been gutted after six members quit, writing in a blistering letter to Newsweek that President Trump is allowing people to suffer and die.
  • Scott Schoettes, HIV Project director at Lambda Legal, penned the letter. Schoettes quit the Presidential Advisory Council last week, along with 5 other HIV advocates.
  • "As advocates for people living with HIV, we have dedicated our lives to combating this disease and no longer feel we can do so effectively within the confines of an advisory body to a president who simply does not care," Schoettes writes.
  • Presidential Advisory Council was created in 1995 — under the administration of President Bill Clinton — to help the president best tackle the epidemic via the help of researchers, health professionals, faith leaders, HIV advocates, and people living with the disease.
  • The council has continued to advise administrations and, under President Obama's tenure, helped produce the influential National HIV/AIDS Strategy.
  • Trump’s record:
    • took down the website of the Office of National AIDS Policy
    • has not appointed a leader for the White House Office of National AIDS Policy
    • Trump refused to meet with HIV leaders when running for president, something both Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders did
    • And TrumpCare/AHCA: "Between ... defunding Medicaid expansion, imposing per-person caps on benefits, and/or block granting the program, the changes to Medicaid contemplated by the American Health Care Act would be particularly devastating for people living with HIV."
  • The people most affected by Trump's cruel indifference: low-income people of color, transgender women, and gay and bi people in Southern states where leaders are itching to cut off funding for meds and health care.

Jenn’s Story

Emmanuel Macron continues his dark horse rise to become world president of my heart.

Business Insider

The French government (led personally by President Macron) has initiated the Make Our Planet Great Again movement, in direct response to our Commander In Chief (a discarded bag of rotting hot wing skins) and his decision to withdraw from Paris Climate agreement.

http://bit.ly/2syi232 ← Watch this, it is glorious.

This movement is creating an outlet for scientists, teachers, researchers, and students to continue their work to fight climate change. Because this is what real countries, led by real leaders, do.

Per Business Insider:

Researchers, teachers, and students can apply for a four-year grant that allows them to continue their studies or instruction, fully financed

Businesspeople and heads of NGOs can also apply to receive funding from the federal government, which issues grants to organizations it considers deserving.

The Make Our Planet Great Again website goes into a more detailed explanation:

You will be able to stay in France at least for the duration of the grant, and longer if you are granted a permanent position. There is no restriction on your husband/wife working in France. If you have children, note that French public schools are free, and the tuition fees of universities and 'grandes écoles' are very low compared to the American system.”

I recognize the Grade A delicious shade in this small paragraph and say ‘merci’ to the entire nation of France for calling America on its goddamn bullshit so beautifully. It’s only missing a blurb on national health care to be total perfection. France, you are a magnificent bastard.

This police dog was fired from his job for an adorable reason - http://bit.ly/2syg2Id

This is Gavel, a German Shepherd who was recruited as a puppy to train as a police dog - but ended up getting the sack.

Unfortunately, Gavel was found to be not up to the task. As the police put it, he "did not display the necessary aptitude for a life on the front line."

The problem was, Gavel was too sociable. He loved meeting strangers, and would much rather play with someone than help arrest them.

However, as one door closes another opens - and Gavel was offered a new job working for the Governor of Queensland, where he holds the official title Vice-Regal Dog.

His duties include greeting visitors to Queensland's Government House and attending official functions with Governor Paul de Jersey.

"Gavel on occasions sits in on briefings with the Governor. Gavel has also demonstrated his capacity to uphold the ceremonial importance of his role at State of Origin time."

"He has outgrown four ceremonial coats, undergone a career change, and brought untold joy to the lives of the governor, Mrs de Jersey, Government House staff, and the thousands of Queenslanders who have since visited the estate."

Shout out for the correction/expansion to my lesson last week. I made it sound like Greek historian Herodotus was a fully credible source but as Kamil pointed out, he employed the Homeric style of history with monsters and fuck-all when it came to a scientific understanding. So, sorry if I mislead, but the excavations WERE REAL.

Headlines

Dipshit Kentucky Governor Advocates For Roaming Faith Healing - http://bit.ly/2s9Y0fc

  1. KY-Gov, Matt Bevin, said in a press conference that he believes roving groups of religious folks roaming around Louisville’s troubled communities will make it all better (paraphrased).
  2. He seriously thinks that walking and praying will curb violence in KY’s most dangerous neighborhoods and he’s asking groups to commit to this for a year
  3. Rather that address the issues that actually cause the problems such as homelessness, education, and healthcare, why not just pray about it?
  4. Rev. Clay Calloway of St. Stephen Baptist, summed up the meeting pretty well, saying he needed a “barf bag”, and “He didn’t say anything of substance,” Calloway said. “He has a responsibility to produce public policy, regulation and provide resources. We don’t need a sermon or him quoting Scripture, we know the Bible and we’re already praying.”

From The What The Fuck Was You Thinking Department - Don’t Put Wasp Nests In Your Vag. - http://ind.pn/2sa3TZW

  1. Lately, there’s been another “all natural” treatment making the rounds. This one is to grind up Oak Galls, which I had never heard of, and into a paste and put it into the vagina in order to tighten it up and get rid of bad smells.
  2. Oak Galls resemble little balls growing on the underside of oak leaves which are deformities formed by wasps laying eggs in a tree’s leaf buds as a place for its larva to develop.
  3. Gynecologist, Jen Gunter, however, has some concerns, such as this can lead to painful sex, fucking with the vagina’s flora, and increased risk of contracting HIV

“It could also wreak havoc with the good bacteria. In addition to causing pain during sex it can increase the risk of HIV transmission. This is a dangerous practice with real potential to harm.”

  1. The Etsy retailer that Dr. Gunter found selling the oak galls – Heritage Health Shop – claimed that they could improve sex lives and be used on cuts with a warning that the paste will hurt.

“Here's a pro-tip, if something burns when you apply it to the vagina it is generally bad for the vagina,” Dr. Gunter added.

Florida School District To Finally Do The Right Thing - http://bit.ly/2s9O5Gj

  1. A few months ago, Chaz Stevens, noticed that Boca Raton High School had banners promoting a Jewish Temple and a local church on the fences which surround the facility.
  2. He applied to put his own advertisement beside those for the “The Church of Satanology and Perpetual Soiree.”
  3. After submitting two requests which were both ignored, he got his lawyer involved to inform that district that ignoring him could lead to a lawsuit since in a 2015 case, the district had argued that those very advertisements were a form of government speech.
  4. Since they’re government speech, then the district can’t discriminate on the basis of religion.
  5. Now, the Palm Beach County school board is considering a new proposal to ban all advertising from groups whose goals are “inconsistent with the educational mission of the School Board…”
  6. “… religious affiliated organizations; churches; organizations promoting or supporting agnostic or atheist beliefs; satanic affiliated organizations; persons seeking political office; political causes and organizations promoting or supporting political causes or controversial subjects…”
  7. “They’ve backed themselves into a corner by declaring that these banners are government speech,” said Andrew Seidel, an attorney with the Freedom From Religion Foundation. “And because of that, they absolutely cannot promote religion, and they cannot denigrate religion. This is the logical legal outcome of their previous cases.”
  8. More from Andrew: http://AndrewLSeidel.com
  9. Chaz Stevens said, “Jesus Horatio Christ, my prayers have been answered.”

This Week’s Stories

Is that a giant bone, Mr. Ground Sloth, or are you just happy to see me?

In the lengthy tradition of finding crazy shit when doing railway construction (i.e. King Henry III under a London parking lot and Viggo the Carpathian River of Slime in NYC’s subway), I bring you a treasure trove of exciting megafauna bones found by Los Angeles METRO workers.

BBC - http://bbc.in/2s9U4Ld

LA Fox News - http://fxn.ws/2sa8FGT

Back in May workers with the Metropolitan Transportation were working 16ft below ground when they began to unearth bones that turned out not to be the buried remains of failed actors or crushed dreams. In fact, the greatest find here was a hip bone that turned out to belong to a Harlan’s Ground Sloth. This particular sloth was estimated to weigh about 1,500lbs and was about 10ft in length. Along with the hip bone was also a fossilized bison bone, making for the saddest ending in an Ice Age movie sequel yet.

The bison and sloth were estimated to roam the Los Angeles Basin between 11,000 and 40,000 yrs ago (no word from creationists how the sloth and bison explain their travels before the Earth was created). It took scientists at the La Brea Tar Pits Museum about 8 days to identify the source of the bones and expected to be moved to the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles in the near future.

This same area of METRO lines has also unearthed remains of ancient camels, mastodons, and mammoths.

Fabulous Nests & Where To Find Them

Just bc we aren’t as photo-op ready as those penguins, we’re still fabulous lovebirds,” says happy gay vulture couple at the hatching of their first egg.

TIME

ABC News

Proving it’s still one of the most progressive cities in the world, an Amsterdam Zoo proudly announces the hatching of a baby griffon vulture, watched over by its mated dads.

The Dutch zoo, Artis, said in a statement Wednesday that keepers who found an egg on the floor of the vulture aviary initially put it in an incubator but later placed in a nest that the two male birds built together in the enclosure. (Because loving couples should be able to adopt, no matter the gender division.) The dads, together for years, had been mating and started building nests in January.

One zookeeper, Job van Tol said he thought it was a “pity” that they could not reproduce because they seemed “really strong couple”.

This was an experiment as zoos have never tried this with same-sex vulture couples, but decided they would give the pair a shot at parenthood.

“The zookeepers put the egg in their nest and watched in awe as the two males took turns keeping it warm. In May, Van Tol said he climbed up to the nest and was stunned. “I saw this little moving baby chick,” he said, adding that he signaled for another caretaker to come watch the young family in action. “It was a special moment. We fell into each other’s arms, which we never do. This we just couldn’t believe.”

“They did it. They hatched the egg,” he added. “For now, it’s 20 days old and it grows like crazy. They are such good parents. They do everything well. They are very protective. It’s beautiful.”

So the dads seem to very, very good vulture parents. They are splitting their duties evenly, taking turns caring for their young, foraging for food, feeding it and defending the nest. There's no guarantee of what the future holds, but Griffon vultures are monogamous animals and tend to stay in couples for years. So relationship goals brought to you by two gay vultures and them little one.

One last fun bit of science info:

More than 1,500 species of animals are known to form same-sex couples.

Waiting 4 Wrath - Episode 134 - The One Where Wonder Woman Frenches Trudeau!

June 2, 2017
00:0000:00
In this week’s show, episode 134, we head out for more heady headlines!
 
Now, grab a beer and help us test the god hypothesis — because, while Ares (Greek god of War and father to Amazonian Queen Hippolyta) hasn’t struck us down yet, we are trying his patience!
 
Shea’s Life Lesson
This week I learned that when you are sauteing kale you should use a bit of coconut oil, that way it won't stick to the pan when you are throwing it in the garbage.
 
Jenn’s Actual Lesson
Did you know that the actual existence of the fabled Amazonian warriors is still being debated? Greek historian Herodotus (sometimes called ‘the father of history’) fully believed they were a real nation. Additionally, multiple burial sites found in Eurasia dating from the 3rd-6th century BC were discovered in the mid-90s. These sites contained scores of skeletons of women, buried in armor with daggers, bows and other weaponry, many with bowed legs from long hours spent on horseback.
 
In case you can’t tell, I’m ready for the Wonder Woman movie.
 
But before we get to all that, let’s have a beer!

Huge thanks to James and Susan for not letting the previous death and destruction of their other beer shipment to deter them from sending us their beloved Shipyard beer. And a little friend for Shea.
Followup
We talked about West Virginia’s Mercer County Schools in episode 125, regarding their teaching an “elective” bible class to elementary and middle schoolers.
Well, the class has been suspended for a year while administrators decide whether it’s actually legal, the result of a lawsuit, from the Freedom From Religion Foundation. In the meantime, the District is still trying to dismiss FFRF’s lawsuit. There will be a hearing on that matter on June 19. Don’t worry, it’s obviously illegal...

JASPER COUNTY, S.C. Two men in South Carolina are facing criminal charges for forcing beer down the throat of a young alligator, according to the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources.
the men posted a photo of the alligator chugging the beer to social media. A short time later, the SCDNR started getting calls, messages, and screenshots related to the incident.
After forcing the juvenile gator to drink the beer they released the reptile back into a pond and watched it swim away.
Joseph Andrew Floyd Jr., 20, and Zachary Lloyd Brown, 21, are facing a misdemeanor charge of harassing wildlife. The men face a maximum fine of $300.

A Mexican lawyer plans to market Trump-branded toilet paper in that country and use the proceeds to benefit deportees
Mexico City-based attorney Antonio Battaglia said he was spurred to action after Trump's assertions during the presidential campaigns that certain Mexicans are "bad hombres." “I was very annoyed, and I started looking for a way to do something that had an impact, not in a tone of mockery or bad revenge, but in a positive way,”
Battaglia has developed a prototype featuring a plucky little cartoon character shaped like a toilet roll and plans to produce the TP by the end of the year, distributing it to grocery stores and donating 30% of proceeds to deportee aid groups.

Preacher Bot 9000 - http://bit.ly/2rL4d0J
Technology is again challenging religious tradition in the small German town of Wittenberg.
A robot priest that delivers blessings in five languages and beams light from its hands has been unveiled as part of an exhibition to mark the anniversary of the start of the Reformation
the robot, called BlessU-2, is intended to trigger debate about the future of the church and the potential of artificial intelligence.
“We wanted people to consider if it is possible to be blessed by a machine, or if a human being is needed,”
Stephan Krebs of the Protestant Church in Hesse and Nassau
The robot has a touchscreen chest, two arms, and a head. For the past 10 days, it has offered blessings in a choice of German, English, French, Spanish or Polish. Worshippers can choose between a male or female voice.
The robot raises its arms, flashes lights, recites a biblical verse and says: “God bless and protect you.” If requested, it will provide a printout of its words. A backup robot is available in case of breakdown.
“The idea is to provoke debate,” said Krebs. “People from the street are curious, amused and interested. They are really taken with it and are very positive. But inside the church, some people think we want to replace human pastors with machines. Those that are church-oriented are more critical.”
 
Don't farCry for me Montana... - http://bit.ly/2skijDo
The “mentally ill” vs. “zealous terrorist” argument has finally made it big time — to video games that is.
Ignoring 40 some years of violent video games from Custer's Revenge to God of War’s giggle cutscenes it looks like we’ve finally found the line — you can’t shoot back at alt-right Christian militia cults, even if they’re full-on homegrown terrorists.
The first promo video for Ubisoft Montreal's fifth edition of Far Cry dropped this week and it’s more beautiful than ever.
Montana isn’t another exotic island (Far Cry, Far Cry 3, Far Cry Instincts) or an African savannah (Far Cry 2), and its gun-toting Christian cult leader isn’t another Bhutanese warlord (Far Cry 4). For the first time, Far Cry — which appeals plentifully (but not exclusively) to gun-obsessed males — appears eager to challenge its audience with a disturbing reflection of extremism in America.
Apparently, that’s a bridge too far…
There’s now a Change.org petition calling for Ubisoft to alter or cancel this “Anti-American” game.
It calls an “an insult to [Ubisoft’s] fanbase.” It asks for the villains to be more multi-ethnic (if not outright making them minorities) — or to be misunderstood heroes, because to leave them as antagonistic, religious Americans is “unrealistic.”
The villains shown so far are a religious/nationalist cult — who consider themselves misunderstood heroes — who’ve trampled all over innocent locals. Not unlike, the Rakyat warriors from FC3 and Pagan Min’s army from FC4. This is all business as usual for Far Cry — with the sole exception of nationality.

We have a fabulous voice mail from a fabulous guest host!
This week marks the third anniversary of Waiting 4 Wrath.
While it did take a long while to get those first few shows out — and even longer to round out the show with enough hosts to make the title relevant — this pseudo-noteworthy date comes on the heels of our 100th Patreon show! So I kinda feel like by their powers combined it’s a good time to get a little mushy.
And to that end, I’d like to thank all our generous supporters, our amazing listeners and perhaps most importantly, the very fine folks who come into the studio and make up for my lack of personality, facts, research, humor, a diverse view-point, sobriety, social skills and audio production.
So, to Jim, Jenn, Shea & Steve, you’re the best co-hosts an angry young atheist podcasting hopeful could have asked for and I can’t wait to see what the next 3 years and 150 episodes bring!

Headlines

New colors mean better ways to describe the world around me! Oh, wait... - http://bit.ly/2rWv7zC
 
Research scientist and neural network goofball Janelle Shane decided to train a neural network to generate new paint colors, complete with appropriate names. The results are possibly the greatest work of artificial intelligence to date…
Shane explained on her Tumblr, "For this experiment, I gave the neural network a list of about 7,700 Sherwin-Williams paint colors along with their RGB values. Could the neural network learn to invent new paint colors and give them attractive names?"
She chose a neural network algorithm called char-rnn, which predicts the next character in a sequence. So basically the algorithm was working on two tasks: coming up with sequences of letters to form color names, and coming up with sequences of numbers that map to an RGB value.
Shane notes that, at first, the algorithm seemed to be forming words that are a combination of brown, blue, and gray.
  • Caae Brae
  • Saa Ble
The longer it processed the dataset, the closer the algorithm got to making legit color names, though they were still mostly surreal: "Soreer Gray" is a kind of greenish color, and "Sane Green" is a purplish blue. When Shane cranked up "creativity" on the algorithm's output, it gave her a violet color called "Dondarf" and a Kelly green called "Bylfgoam Glosd." 
In the end, she concludes: "1. The neural network really likes brown, beige, and grey; 2. The neural network has really, really bad ideas for paint names." 
Honestly, I just can’t wait for crayons with names like; Snowbonk, Bunflow, Bank Butt, Sink, Light of Blast, Clardic Fug, Stargoon, Dorkwood, Sindis Poop, Stoner Blue, Stanky Bean, Turdly, 
On a side note, Janelle Shane seems pretty awesome and you can check out everything else she has unleashed her neural network on, from Dr. Who to heavy metal band names,
 
The Russians Summon Their Most Powerful Hero To Defeat The Evil Demon WannaCry - http://bit.ly/2rWwIWo
Holy water is not typically your first line of defense when dealing with malicious computer software but as we all have learned, Russia doesn’t do anything typical. 
Last week, in case you haven’t heard, there was a worldwide cyberattack by the WannaCry ransomware crypto worm, which targets computers running Windows by encrypting data and demanding ransom payments in the Bitcoin cryptocurrency.
The attack started on Friday, 12 May 2017,[8] and within a day was reported to have infected more than 230,000 computers in over 150 countries.
Russia, inevitably, was also hit and WannaCry and managed to compromise the systems of Russian banks in some isolated cases. Vladmir Putin, being the pragmatist that he is, probably called up his good friend Patriarch Kirill to erect some magic spirit barriers to protect the computers from the evil virus!
Although this story hasn’t been confirmed there has been an older picture of Kirill blessing some government computers floating around the web, so we know he has blessed them it the past. Also knowing that Vald and Kirill have been close for years I feel like its not a long jump to assume he called up Super Sayin Pope to deal with this, probably demonic, threat. 

This Week’s Stories

Jenn’s Story
To make up for the ridiculousness of last week’s story, here’s some history:
Gisella Perl, The Angel of Auschwitz.
This story has some unusual historical significance, and probably a lot of people would actually condemn her, but her story is inspiring and it’s a tragedy more people aren’t familiar with her work and bravery.
Gisella was born in Hungary in 1907. She was shown to be extremely bright and talented at an early age, graduating secondary school at age 16 (the first woman and the only Jew to have done this up to this time). *side note, secondary school in Hungary is usually not even started until a student is 16*
She decided early she wanted to go into medicine. Her father attempted to change her mind because he felt it would cause her to abandon her Jewish faith, but despite his misgivings, she completed medical school and became a licensed gynecologist. She was working as such, living with her surgeon husband and children in Romania until 1944 when the Germans invaded.
It was that very year she, her husband and her son ended up being sent to Auschwitz. This death camp is notorious enough in itself to understand what being sent there could mean, but there was an added element of awful that is sometimes forgotten. Auschwitz was the domain of Dr. Josef Mengele, Captain of the SS and a seriously fucked up son of a bitch. Most people have heard of him, but not everyone knows exactly why he has been made so infamous and that he is referred to as ‘The Angel of Death’ and “the cruelest Nazi of the Holocaust”.

Faith In Humanity Restored

Keeping the Catholic train a roll’n (see this week’s patreon story at http://patreon.com/w4w) we’re visiting a Catholic schoolboy asked to defend church’s morals… who then turned in a 127-page “Gay Marriage is Fabulous” paper!
The 11th grader, who goes by reddit username is AverageSmurf, was asked to write a paper defending the morals of one of the church’s teachings.
“The assignment is to write a ‘Summa Theologica’ style paper where you present a ‘moral dilemma,’ which is where you give the objections to church teaching and then the replies from the church. The exact words my teacher said in class were that you have to provide the church teaching to ‘show and prove that the church’s position is right,’” the student writes on Reddit.
Instead, he turned in a 127-page whopper of a paper, simply titled Gay Marriage is Fabulous.
When the issue of “why is the church so against gay marriage” came up, I asked for the little “talking ball” and just started going for like 15 minutes on how the bible isn’t a condemnation of homosexuality and in all ways affirms love rather than hate and how god doesn’t make mistakes when he makes us, we are who we are. After which, when she started quoting Aquinas on natural law, I stood up and said that natural law has no basis in scripture, science, and fails the is-ought fallacy presented by David Hume and is bases heavily on divine command theory which fails the Euthyphro dilemma. Then I went on about how, when conceiving natural law, Aquinas bases his argument on a law by the Byzantine emperor, Justinian, who wasn’t very intelligent and believed gay people caused “famines and pestilences”.
In the next class, she changed the format of the class. She did not allow discussions and showed a video the whole class (link). The video insinuates that homosexuality is basically a choice or something caused by abuse and “unhealthy relationships”. Furthermore, during class she’s spouted off standard, conservative bull-sh*t arguments like the “sanctity of marriage”, “gay = aids”, “gay relationships are unhealthy”, “kids need a mom and a dad”, “Gay men are much more likely to be pedophiles”, etc.
For instance, in class, when we were talking about “gay = pedophilia”, i said that there was no evidence nor science to back the claim up, but rather much to discredit such a laughable theory. Furthermore, I went on to say that the only people who have higher rates of pedophilia are priests who molest little boys. Her response was, “is that a fact? or is that just something the media wants you to believe.” She went on to totally deny that priests had ever molested children.
He later commented on his paper that http://bit.ly/2rWvme0
I've received many questions or comments on how a teacher would "never assign that" or that I choose this topic, here's what happened: In class we were told to choose 3 topics that we were either interested in or passionate about and that we would be writing a paper on their relationship with the church, as well as the morality of that issue. So, of course, I choose gay marriage as one of them (I think the others were "Justified War" and Nuclear Armament). We were then given a few days to come up with a thesis for our paper. If I remember correctly, mine was along the lines of "If Jesus were alive today, he'd be a supporter of gay marriage".
In the next class, I was then informed that I had to write in support of the view of the church. Furthermore, this was also the class where she said we had to prove and support the Church's teachings. It's not that I'm incapable of writing something I don't agree with, it's just that, in this case, that was not the right choice, for a number of reasons: - I just recently came out and thought this would be a great way to display to kids how homosexuality is nothing to take issue with. - After her comments in class, there was no way I could stand to write that paper. - I knew writing something like this would impress my grandfather, who is a devout catholic and spent 7 years in the seminary, and, just maybe, would offer some information that helped him understand me. - I just wanted people to have a resource where they could find information on why it's okay to be catholic and pro-gay, to, hopefully, spread a little bit of love and enlightenment.
So you know what AverageSmurf? You’re right, your teachers are dumb as bricks, and you are our BAMF of the week!

Waiting 4 Wrath - Ep 132 - The One With Gus of Atheism 101 Fame!

May 19, 2017
00:0000:00

In this week’s show we cure Scientology's constipation by burning the evil right out of their dolphins. 

Now, grab a beer and help us test the god hypothesis — because, while Ratri, the Hindu goddess of the night hasn’t struck us down yet, we are trying her patience!
 
Shea’s Life Lesson
This week I was walking and a man in front of me dropped some money, I thought, what would Jesus do. So I turned it into wine… well, I bought wine. 
 
Jenn’s Actual Lesson
Did you know that the ancient Roman cult of Mithras left no written records? Much of what we know about the (male-only) cult is through excavated artifacts. One of the best collections was discovered under a construction site in London in 1954. (Considering how they also found the skeleton of King Richard III under a parking lot, London needs to stop losing important shit.)
 
But before we get to all that, let’s have a beer!

Folk Cure Ills - http://bit.ly/2rxcQZz
  • Last month in the city of Guangzhou, China, a man with the surname Liu was suffering from what must have been a particularly bad case of constipation. Instead of laxatives or even natural dietary remedies, this 49-year-old turned to a “folk remedy” he had heard about: inserting a live eel into his anus.
  • One might say that this traditional remedy worked all too well because the frightened creature tore right through the man’s intestines and began swimming around his midsection. This was all unbeknownst to Mr. Liu at the time and on the outside resulted in swelling around his midsection for which he went to the hospital. However, he strangely refrained from telling them about the home remedy he attempted earlier.
  • So, of course, it came as quite a shock when doctors found a hole in his duodenum and the half-meter-long fish that caused it. After that initial wave of horror passed, they told Mr. Liu that he would need emergency surgery to remove the creature. Time was of the essence for if the fish had broken through the man’s stomach, his life would have been in serious jeopardy.
  • Mr. Liu continued to play coy with hospital staff saying that the eel had gotten in there, “by accident.” Luckily, they could extract the eel (which by that time had died) and save Mr. Liu. Only then, did he finally come clean and tell them about the treatment.
  • It was an awful lot of trouble to go through to ease a case of constipation.
 
Scientology Rehab Center… - http://bit.ly/2rxxDw1
  • A rehab center in the hills of rural Cannon County Tenn. has been shut down after a 911 call led investigators to a locked facility.
  • The facility was called Life Center for a New Tomorrow
  • deputies said they found someone who said he was being mistreated, falsely imprisoned and treated through Scientology.
“The workers there, the manager and other staff were Scientologists, there was a great deal of Scientology paraphernalia found throughout the facilities,” said Trevor Lynch, Assistant District Attorney.
  • Deputies found two patients there, one of whom had a mental illness, the other was being treated for substance abuse. “This facility was not capable for caring for the individuals it was taking in,” Lynch said.
  • Three people were eventually arrested. Dennis Flamond and Hans Lytle were charged with false imprisonment, and another man, Marc Vallieres was charged with facilitation of kidnapping.

Jenn’s Story: I Give Up, Here’s a Story About Genitals
Let’s talk science. And sex. And sexy science. Most people have heard that dolphins are one of the few other species who have sex for pleasure, but there’s actually a whole lot of other freaky going on. Whales and dolphins have surprisingly interesting sex lives, replete with various positions, elaborate vaginas, and a rare type of penis that’s always mostly erect. 
Dara Orbach (a postdoctoral fellow at Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia and research associate at Mount Holyoke College in Massachusetts) has spent the past seven years of her professional career studying dolphin vaginas. Patricia Brennan and Diane Kelly are two women who have studied dolphin penises. These three women have joined forces in an attempt to crack the code on how dolphins do it.
Why the questioning? Per Science Alert:
“For starters, dolphin sex takes place under trying circumstances. The animals must properly connect despite ocean currents, and salty seawater, which is lethal to cetacean sperm, must be kept out of the uterus. What’s more, dolphins, porpoises and whales have vaginas with extremely unusual twists, folds, and recesses that sperm must traverse to make a baby.”
So how do 3 science ladies go about understanding the...um...ins and outs of underwater copulation? I’m glad you asked! It involves dead bodies and beer keg pumps! Orbach collected reproductive tracts from dozens of dolphins and porpoises who had died of natural causes. 
Side note: My favorite quote “Surprisingly, it’s not a very popular field to look at dolphin genitalia,” Orbach said.
From ScienceMag.org
“Kelly, who has also studied alligator and armadillo penises, came up with the idea of inflating the male organs, which are also twisty. The team did so with a pressurized pump — one more like a beer keg than the kind used to inflate bike tires — and then fit those into the matching vaginas.”
Now, what could be biologically advantageous to make successful intercourse so difficult? Females even have a way to twist their bodies to make sure the attempt fails. (Dirty cetacean teases.)
“Because they have lot of suitors, and reproduction is time-consuming.
At the height of their fertility, female cetaceans mate as many as 15 times in 15 minutes with two or three males, Orbach said. Pregnancy lasts 11 months, and calves are nursed for two years."It's a very substantial investment of a female's life in her developing fetus and calf as well," she said. "So from a female's perspective, she wants some way to control who's going to be the father."
This information could help conservation biologists study how endangered species need to reproduce in captivity and is also just a fun fact to pull out at cocktail parties where you don’t know anyone but want to test the crowd.

Submitted By Listener Bill: Legally Blind 4th-Grader Gets Gift Of Sight For His Birthday https://yhoo.it/2qYxFAj
 
A legally blind fourth-grader in Tennessee got the birthday gift of a lifetime recently when his school surprised him with glasses giving him perfect vision.
On Friday, Lanier Elementary in Maryville presented Andrew Borden, 10, with eSight3 eyewear.
"These glasses brought me from a faraway distance of 2,200 to 20/20," Andrew told ABC affiliate WATE-TV recently. "This would make things a whole lot easier, from reading to just playing games in class, on the computers.
The eSight3 eyewear came with a visor, equipped with two cameras, that goes over Andrew's regular glasses as well as a hand controller and a dial that lets him zoom in and out. The visor also has a light and a freeze-frame option.
Andrew has ocular albinism, which affects his hair, skin and eyes.
The glasses cost $10,000.
Renee Powell, a teacher at the school, told WATE-TV that the school had helped put together a fundraising site on GoFundMe after learning that Andrew's parents could not afford the glasses.
"We knew as a community we could do it because we have a small community but we have big hearts and we love our community members," Powell said. "Andrew is one of the most special, little guys I've ever worked with. ... It's just a dream come true for everyone here in our community."

In Jenn’s absence the mantle of knowing stuff fell-ish on me… and… well, I missed nearly everything. So, let’s start with some stuff I should have said week’s ago…
 
Correction from Recovering Catholic’s iTunes review.
We weren’t sure if he meant ‘herd’ or ‘head’ that he was feeding (‘cause White Rabbit is a great song), so he was nice enough to clarify
“Hello, there wrathful studios. This is recovering catholic from the latest iTunes review. Just wanted to let y'all know that I did mean heard. Although it is small we have 3 horses and 3 goats on the property. After a long week, it is truly a pleasure listening while feeding them dinner Friday nights. Just wanted to clear up. Love the show and thanks for what y'all do.”

Shea vs. Nude Cats - http://bit.ly/2p3aW5s
In a bizarre case that so far has police and residents stumped, at least seven cats in Waynesboro’s Tree Streets (VA) neighborhood have been shaved since December without their owners’ permission.
None of the pet owners have seen the person or people shaving the cats, and no witnesses have come forward yet.
cats owned by two separate Tree Streets residents have been shaved in the underbelly, groin and leg areas. He said it appears the shaving was done with a razor of some kind. The cats were not otherwise harmed
“Collectively, this involves seven cats that are indoor and outdoor cats,” the Police Chief said.
Superman vs the KKK - http://bit.ly/2qmb7bI
After WWII had ended, The Klu Klux Klan began to grow and became more violent. This didn't sit well with activist, Stetson Kennedy who vowed to take the giant on. Stetson went undercover and actually joined the Klan in order to learn all their secrets and tactics.
After collecting all this information, he quickly realized the police would not help him in taking the Klan down. Looking for a way to publicly expose the klan, he turned to a popular radio show centered around Superman.
He had hoped the radio show would develop a story in which Superman battles the Klan while simultaneously exposing all of their real-life secrets and lingo.
The radio show agreed to the story and developed a 16-part series titled, "Clan of The Fiery Cross." The radio show subsequently harmed the Klan and their recruitment efforts.
According to Deadline, Rick Bowers’ young adult novel – Superman Versus The Ku Klux Klan: The True Story of How the Iconic Superhero Battled the Men of Hate – is being produced by Lotus Entertainment and PaperChase Films.
Producer Marc Rosen says:
“Fighting the forces of evil with brain over brawn, artists taking down bullies and the power of a good piece of content, it’s a real case of truth being cooler than. We’re excited to develop the thriller elements of the film in the vein of The Departed and Mississippi Burning.”

Steve - Alt-Right goons - http://bit.ly/2p3cqg7
I caught a story in Salon today that merits a brief discussion. Called “Alt-right hopes to organize street-fighting goon squad: Is it more than macho posturing?”, Right off the bat, I had a couple of issues before even getting into the meat of the story itself. First of all, I despise the term alt-right. It is a word they appropriated by Richard Spencer (well-known pig-fucker) because neo-nazi sounds too harsh. They are at the very least white supremacists, but also tend to hate many of the “other” such as Jews, gays, immigrants. That sounds pretty neo-nazi to me.
Anyway, once I got into the story I found it is about groups of haters who feel it is their duty to form into gangs to protect another nazi’s in public from the dangerous lefties, who are apparently well known for starting fights and scaring the poor conservatives as they go about their constitutionally protected free speechifying, though reported incidences of this happening are exceedingly rare. They are just spoiling for a fight.
One group, called Fraternal Order of Alt-Knights (or FOAK), was started by Kyle Chapman, who in march dressed up as one of the batman impersonators from The Dark Knight, then beat up a fucking lefty protester near UC Berkeley. He was then was arrested for felony assault with a deadly weapon, carrying a concealed dirk or dagger, assault with a taser, and assault with pepper spray, and has now become a neo-nazi poster boy hero. He says the group is, “dedicated to “defense and confrontation” in the streets.”
Then just a few days later, another group, the Proud Boys Network, was co-founded by professional dick-head Gavin McInnes who is a member of the right-wing website The Rebel Media, and who recently showed up in a video where he was attempting an elaborate apology for Holocaust denial and anti-Semitism. McInnes calls for “strong minded men who are comfortable with fisticuffs” to join.
I don’t think it’s too hard to see where I’m going with this. If one has spent any time studying history, then there is a really obvious parallel between these fuckers (as well as with groups like the southern border vigilantes) and the brownshirts who’s terror tactics and brutality fueled the rise of the original Nazi party.
A major difference here is that the little orange micro-penis is not Hitler. He’s not smart and he’s shit at politics so there seems to be little chance of him destroying our institutions the same way the third Reich destroyed the Weimar republic. Another huge difference is access to information, which today is literally light speed ahead of where it was in the early 1900’s.
The Salon article ended with a couple of examples of fighting these fuckers with mockery rather than fighting them and acting as they think we are. Instead, do as in Olympia, Washington in 2005 and show up dressed as clowns and mock goose-stepping soldiers, or just do as in 1993 in Austin, TX and just moon the assholes in mass.

Rick Wiles: ‘They’re Building A Global Brain That Will Embody Lucifer’s Mind’ - http://bit.ly/2pDglNH
Alarmed by reports that a computer program has “learned” to play Texas Hold ‘Em so efficiently that it can now defeat professional poker players, Rick Wiles lost his fucking mind on ‘Trunews” a radio program he runs that’s so full of bullshit they didn’t even bother spelling “true” correctly
Because Texas Hold ‘Em involves bluffing, Wiles is convinced that computers are now learning how to lie—and since Satan is “the father of all lies,” it stands to reason that we will soon have “demon-possessed artificially intelligent robots” controlling the world.
“If you have a machine that is capable of lying, then it has to be connected to Lucifer,” he said. “Now we’re back to the global brain. This is where they’re going. They’re building a global brain that will embody Lucifer’s mind and so Lucifer will be deceiving people through the global brain.”
Also, because he’s fucking insane, demon-possessed robots will soon start replacing human workers. Which will, apparently, not result in a utopian future of leisure but one where the “deep State’ whatever the fuck that is, will just murder the dicks off of the unemployed of otherwise unneeded people.
“I’m going to tell you where I think this is going,” he said. “I think the deep state planners have already figured this out and they have scheduled a massive war to eliminate tens of millions, perhaps hundreds of millions, of useless eaters. I really believe that.”
Which is why you’re fucking insane Rick.

Psychic Tries To Prove His Immortality … Doesn’t See It Coming… http://bit.ly/2pCYYww
Theprit Palee, 25, had been performing the traditional spirit dance in front of spectators in Chiang Mai, northern Thailand
The folk ritual is believed to honor the ghosts of ancestors
It’s done by stabbing yourself with a sword
Now, the trick here is, as he did in other shows, the blade of the sword broke when it was pressed against his chest - because it’s fucking fake
But on this occasion, the act went wrong and the weapon failed to snap causing the 25-year-old to stab himself in the chest.
According to Noom Udorn, Mr. Palee had provided readings for several years to local people. Readings that apparently never included “hey, don’t fucking stab yourself with a sword stupid”
‘This is a tradition that happens every year. The sword normally breaks but this time it went inside him,’ he said.
 
‘The medium has been respected for many years. People love him. He is one of people’s favorites.’
The police were called and they tried to save him. But when you have a sword in your fucking heart that’s pretty much it. He died at the hospital, presumably to the sounds of nurses and doctors scratching their heads — after all, he should have seen the sword-robe malfunction coming right?

Wyoming Men Wear Tutus In Protest Of Senator’s Victim-Blaming Comments - http://bit.ly/2qlwLNx

Supporters of LGBTQ equality wore tutus across Wyoming Friday to protest Sen. Mike Enzi’s comment that men who wear tutus into bars are asking to be assaulted.

“Honestly, this is what we do in Wyoming. Straight men all over the state are going to be joining their LGBTQ siblings and wearing tutu’s, buying their queer friends drinks and having a great time,” Equality Wyoming’s Sara Burlingame wrote. “It is a great time to be in the Equality State where we talk out differences and show up for each other — with or without tutus.”

For Wyomingites, Enzi’s anecdote wasn’t random. It instantly called to mind Wyoming resident Sissy Goodwin, a retired professor and well-known cross-dresser whose story has been featured by media outlets like NBC and The Washington Post.

Goodwin donned a bright green and yellow petticoat when he joined participants in a statewide protest dubbed #LiveAndLetTutu, after the state’s “live and let live” culture.

A number of bars here in little Laramie Wyoming participate too (well, most I think) and donated the proceeds of tutu-shots to WyoAIDS.org - the charity that Big Gay Jim runs and has mentioned on-air before.

W4W - Episode 129 - The One Where All Our ReasonCon Dreams Come True!

April 28, 2017
00:0000:00

In This Week’s Show we’re back from seeing our witch-doctor at ReasonCon 2017 to wrap up our curse-free journey through America’s plan B!

Now, grab a beer and help us test the god hypothesis — because, while Crock E Dile, the Wrathful Studios god of crock-o-shit headlines, hasn’t struck us down… this episode… we are trying his patience!
Shea’s Life Lesson
You shouldn’t actually drink like a fish in the south - people fry fish there, just like my brain, my brain on southern booze....
Jenn’s Actual Lesson
Did you that, somewhat surprisingly, 48% of citizens in North Carolina identify as religious? The Southern Baptist Convention is by far the biggest slice of the godly pie.
But before we get to all that, let’s have a beer!

Round Table Discussion
Speaking of people who helped get us to ReasonCon we can now count Daniel (AKA Mr. Bible Pants) of Country Fried Freethought Podcast to our list of incredible people!
It was great chatting with you a ReasonCon, listened to your hotel chatter today, good stuff.
Find Country Fried Freethought - http://apple.co/2oHpIcQ
He also left us a voicemail!
I sympathize with you on the not talking about it at work.
That can be a bit touchy which is a shame because ReasonCon was an amazing group of insta-friends! We hadn’t even got our luggage out of the car before we ran into a few people we knew, nor had we had even made it to our room before making new friends and we’re glad to count you among them!
We also got another German lesson from German Dennis!
That’s a dangerous business you’ve got there Dennis, trusting Shea...
I’m glad you like each week’s cover art! We’ve used it as message space a few times in the past but it doesn’t really serve a purpose beyond its being one more place for me sneak in a laugh or something.
The artwork each week is usually inspired by some element of the show as I create it along with the show notes post-edit. It also helps us keep the archives on the site interesting with cool cover flow animation and such, which is I suppose — if anything — the real reason we started to do that. Enjoy this week’s - it’s colorful ;)
Before we get to ReasonCon, thanks to a follow-up PSA from Candace (who happens to be a mortician):
Regarding last week’s story on ‘smoking wet’ or joints dipped in PCP, also known as ‘embalming fluid’, but not TECHNICALLY embalming fluid: “I wanted to clarify in case anyone really stupid is listening - embalming fluid should not be smoked. It's sometimes used as a carrier to dissolve PCP in, and PCP is sometimes referred to as "embalming fluid" even when it hasn't been mixed, but formaldehyde is a gas and will dissipate from the embalming fluid as it dries in open air, which is also how it penetrates tissues during embalming. Heat causes it to gas off more quickly, and even at 50-60° (room temperature for a mortuary) a small amount of embalming fluid will cause your eyes to water, throat to burn, and will remove your fingerprints if you get it on your fingers. NOT something that should be inhaled.”
So yeah. Basically, that’s all terrifying and you shouldn’t do drugs! M’kay!
Moving on to text messages, which you can also leave on the Drunk Dial Line at (513) 760–0463, we heard from the Napkin Pope!
Just for Steve's information as to the Divine Napkin's stance on sanitary napkins, it was revealed some time back, on the Scathing Atheist, that we did, in fact, evolve from filthy monkey napkins and sanitary napkins. Though Napkinism treats this teaching as allegory, trusting science for actual facts.
Speaking of the Drunk Dial Line: (513) 760–0463, we should probably mention that we don’t actually expect or require you to be drunk to dial it. While fun we really only started calling it that because we think it’s funny ;)
Moving on to iTunes reviews — it’s an amazing week for communications with us apparently, keep it up — we got a great review from a recovering Catholic!
Shea is my spirit animal
By: Recovering Catholic
Take 2 because I don't think this came through before. I love this show. I went through the backlog of this show faster than any show before. As a lover of beer I love the beer reviews, just can't always find them in NJ. As an atheist, I enjoy the mockery of religion. The only downside now is I have to wait until Friday now to listen to an episode. Which makes feeding my herd that much better at the end of the day. The last thing I will say is, without a doubt, Shea is my spirit animal. So keep testing that god hypothesis.
So yeah, it was a pretty amazing week for us as far as interactions go. Thank you all!

Investigators told KVIA-TV that the man became unresponsive when it came time to pay the dancers at The Red Parrot in El Paso. After realizing he wasn't trying to skip out on paying for the services, employees tried to perform CPR.
That didn't work, so emergency services were called and they took White to a local hospital. Sheriff's officials said it appears White died of natural causes, but they declined to release any other details.

A 52-year old man from Tavares in Florida’s Lake County is in intensive care after he was seriously injured during a ‘five-day binge on methamphetamine’. Mr. Frank Canfield was found by neighbors ‘writing on the ground in pain’ outside his property clutching his crotch.
Unable to interview Mr. Canfield due to his injuries, investigators turned their attention to a 28-year old woman who had been living at his property and is believed to be his girlfriend.
According to the woman, the pair had spent the past few days “smoking crystal meth.”
Mr. Canfield became violent and threatened her with a knife, before running into the backyard. She followed him outside and saw he had removed his clothes.
“I was puzzled about what he was going to do next, I had no idea that he would cut off his privates.”
“Remarkably, he seemed quite calm as he began cutting,” she said. “I was the one screaming and begging him to stop.”
However, her pleas fell on deaf ears, and Mr. Canfield finished his gory task.
“As soon as he finished cutting he jumped over the back fence and ran away,”
A team of searchers combed the area
“In the footage, we can see Mr. Canfield alongside the canal that runs behind his property,” “In his hand he’s holding his genitals, we believe. At this point, he spots an alligator on the opposite side of the canal, and he flings his genitals in that direction.” The gator is alleged to ‘quickly pounce on Mr. Canfield’s genitals and consume them’. “There’s no chance whatsoever of recovering them,”

Jenn’s Octopussy
Sassy and Smart Cephalopods - Apparently they are also self-geneticists.
The Octopus is able to re-write its RNA
The Octopus is one of the smartest animals in nature, even though they basically look like alien toys and are delicious with wasabi. In actuality, they are multi-limbed Houdini’s, puzzle masters and warmly attentive mothers. If there is a Shawshank Redemption sequel or remake, it needs to star octopi.
James Wood of The Cephalopod Page (I bet he has to beat the ladies off with a baseball bat) said that over the years of him working with octopuses, he has already seen many octopuses escape, including one in Bermuda that managed to escape several times from its closed aquarium to eat the inhabitants of another enclosure. There was also the story of how a female in Australia kept getting pregnant even though she was not around any other tentacles. Apparently, a fellow from a few tanks overpaid her a mystery visit at some point. AND she was able to store packets of the sperm to fertilize herself more than once. Octopus 'A little bit' pregnant
No word on baby-octopi support from deadbeat dads.
"The octopus appears to be utterly different from all other animals, even other mollusks, with its eight prehensile arms, its large brain, and its clever problem-solving capabilities,"
said Clifton Ragsdale from the University of Chicago, who was part of a 2015 study that sequenced the genome of octopuses.
Researchers who have been studying how cephalopods edit their genome discovered that instead of relying on DNA mutations to adapt, squids, octopuses, and cuttlefish can make changes to their RNA, which is considered the genetic messenger that carries out the instructions from DNA. Many of the RNA edits happen in the brain of the cephalopods, including an adaptation that allows the neurons of the animals to function in cold environments.
 
Story Time with Steve - http://bit.ly/2oMiBDi
“Do you believe in God?”, is a question that many people have a hard time answering honestly. There are a lot of reasons behind this, from the general stigma that many people have regarding atheists, a deeply ingrained sense that atheists are bad, to people simply not caring enough to give it much thought and going with what they’ve been told by their family or peers. The general consensus from Pew polling shows that around 3% of the US population say they are atheists, though around 9% say they do not believe in God or a universal spirit. Gallop asked directly in 2016, “Do you believe in God” and found that 10% of respondents said No.
Researchers Will Gervais and Maxine Jajle of the University of Kentucky Psychology department wanted to find out if the actual number of atheists differed from the number of self-proclaimed atheists and their new study seems to show that there are a lot more atheists in the US than previous polls have demonstrated. They wanted to learn the total number atheists” in our country, regardless of whether or not they were reluctant to admit it.
Since a lack of religious belief is heavily stigmatized in our country (and most places), they wanted to create a study that would get people to more accurately report their thinking regarding the existence of a god. So, to do this they had to design a questionnaire that didn’t require people to directly say, “I don’t believe in God”, o v r “I believe there is no God.” To do this they had to get clever and I personally think they did it.
They made a questionnaire that contained a list of statements about benign things in life such as, “I have a dishwasher in my kitchen.”; “I’m a vegetarian.”; and “I can drive a motorcycle.” They asked respondents to answer only a single question of, “How many of these statements are NOT true for you?” The control group got the basic list, the test group got exactly the same list, except it also added the statement, “I believe in God”. By comparing the results of the two test groups, they concluded that somewhere between 25-35% of Americans don’t believe in God.
In order to verify the validity of their testing, they created a second group of questions, this time three lists, and asked them to another group of respondents. This time two of the lists didn’t mention God at all, and one replaced the statement, “I do not believe in God.”, with the nonsense statement, “I do not believe that 2+2 is less than 13.” This test yielded a slightly lower number of atheists, possibly because people are more anxious to be definitive about disbelief.
This study admittedly has a wide margin of error, but even conservatively interpreted, it seems to show that there are a lot more atheists in the US than previously thought. It tells me personally that we need to keep up our efforts to destigmatize the term atheist and the very idea that a disbelief in a supreme being has bearing an individual’s moral fabric. This is perhaps the most damaging since, for a large part of society, being an atheist means that one cannot also be moral. We know this is not true and we have to work hard to show how wrong that way of thinking is.

A Comment about ReasonCon from Mark
Sad that all of the promotion for ReAson con does not address the issue of putting money into the North Carolina economy while they continue to deny basic protections for LGBTQ community. Despite the useless "overturning" of HB2 which only ended up denying Charlotte's LGBTQ protections provided by the elected city council. I have not heard any reason or argument from anyone why Atheists should spend money on hotel rooms in North Carolina even before they "overturned" HB2. It is too bad they could not move the event for a year or two to South Carolina it would still bring an Atheist conference to the south without putting money in NC economy.

Ohio is a state with a serious opioid problem. It's tied with neighboring Kentucky for the third-highest overdose death rate in the country, and the state Department of Health reports that fatal overdoses, mostly due to opioids, have jumped eight-fold in the past 15 years, killing more than 3,000 Ohioans in 2015
 
In a bid to address the problem, the state passed a 911 Good Samaritan law last year. Such laws, which are also in place in 36 other states, provide limited immunity from prosecution for drug possession offenses for overdose victims and people who seek medical assistance to help them. The idea is to encourage people to seek help for their friends rather than hesitate, perhaps with lethal consequences, out of fear of being busted.
 
But…
 
one Ohio town is getting around the intent of the law by using an unrelated statute to go after overdose victims. If you OD in the city of Washington Court House, you can expect to be charged with—wait for it—"inducing panic," which is used for cases that "cause serious public inconvenience or alarm."
 

This Week’s Stories

Govnah Gross - http://nbcnews.to/2p2gaOa
Alabama attempting to impeach defiant, yucky and adulterous Governor.
 
'Lov Gov' Robert Bentley - The full review report (scandal!)
 
The text message Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley sent his wife read
"I love you Rebekah."
But her name is Dianne.
 
Last week, the Alabama Ethics Commission found probable cause that Bentley had broken ethics and campaign-finance laws. On Friday, Bentley convinced a judge to block the impeachment hearings, and he refused to step down. “I do not plan to resign. I have done nothing illegal,” he said at a news conference. “If the people want to know if I misused state resources, the answer is simply no. I have not.”
 
But his tune has changed over the weekend. He faces 4 felonies and it appears he will work out a deal with his resignation plan.
A little background on the Gov: Bentley was elected in 2011, and is a devout Christian with a background in dermatology. (His apparent mistress, Rebekah Mason, was formerly a TV newscaster with no political background. But she sure ended up with plenty of influence.) He’s active in the FBC of Tuscaloosa, has been the chairman of their board of deacons four times and a member of the Youth for Christ advisory board as well as the Family Counseling advisory board. Bentley is 74 yrs old, teaches Sunday School and, of course, has asked God for forgiveness. "I've asked God to forgive me because that's the most important thing," Bentley said while on a tour of the Limestone Correctional Facility in Harvest, Ala. "I want back in His fellowship. And so I asked God to forgive me."
 
So shit started to really go down when Bentley’s wife gathered evidence after noticing him acting oddly. In 2015 Dianne Bentley sprung a trap on her husband while on a trip to the beach, leaving her cell phone behind and recording as she went for a walk. The recording captured Bentley calling Mason. He told her he loved her, and indulged in some ‘sexy’ talk: “When I stand behind you and I put my arms around you, and I put my hands on your breasts, and I put my hands on you and pull you in real close, hey, I love that, too.” (side note: vomit) After this information came to light, Dianne immediately filed for and was granted a divorce in August of 2015.
 
But, as we all we know, adultery isn’t illegal. Where are the felonies stemming from? Money!! Bentley is accused of misusing state resources to try to hide his relationship with Mason, including using law-enforcement muscle to try to prevent the release of the tapes. The impeachment report released last week also lit into Bentley for being uncooperative. He is also accused of intimidation and retaliation. It is said he fired the head of his security, Spencer Collier after Collier refused to continue to cover-up the affair. (Collier had been made aware of the affair in 2014, but Bentley had promised he would break it off. LIAR!)
 
So, he’s a hypocritical asshole. He’s also tone-deaf and repulsive. Direct quote in his own defense: “I love many members of my staff, in fact, all the members of my staff. Do I love some more than others, absolutely.”
 
To finish up, I’d like to read a couple of items from his campaign website: (from Nov 20, 2010) “I will ensure that Alabama does not follow the trend of allowing gay marriages or civil unions, and I will protect our state's right to define marriage as between one man and one woman. I support the Defense of Marriage Act, affirming the right of states not to recognize same-sex marriages licensed in other states. Alabamians should work together to protect traditional marriage. The two-parent family provides the best environment of stability, discipline, responsibility, and character.
 
Bentley indicates he supports the following principles concerning education: Support sex education programs which stress abstinence.
Endorse a mandatory "moment of silence" after the pledge of allegiance in public schools.
 
Q: Do you support the current law that allows teachers to spank a child as long as the teacher follows local school board policies?
A: Yes.

This one is a bit different though, in that, this time the FFRF isn’t following up on a cease and desist letter to a school, or county commissioner meeting, or city mayor. This time, the FFRF is suing U.S. Treasury Secretary, Jacob Lew and IRS Commissioner, John Koskinen, and the United States of America.
 
The FFRF, however, has responded and rebutted all of Becket’s arguments and contend that the substance of the law needs to be settled. Either allow the same tax considerations to atheists who do many of the same things in support of their communities, or don’t allow it for anybody.
 
Crucifixion!? That's Not So Bad... - http://bit.ly/2opIF7g
 
Manchester ‘crucifixion’ Fundraiser Cancelled As Clergy Condemn It -
 
Organizers of the Manchester Passion Play, which will tell the story of Christ’s crucifixion in the city’s Cathedral Gardens on Saturday, offered “the full crucifixion experience” for £750.
 
The offer, posted on the Manchester Passion 2017 Crowdfunder site, was removed after members of the play’s organizing committee, which includes C of E clergy, expressed concerns it was potentially dangerous and blasphemous.
Reverend Falak Sher:
“When I saw it I did not like it, I thought it was disgraceful. The whole message of the cross is hope and love. When I saw this I was not very happy and asked the committee to take this one down.
“We didn’t like promoting the event in this way for £750. I thought it was not a very positive message when dealing with a message of love and hope.”
Alexander Stewart-Clark, a volunteer who serves as a managing trustee of the Passion Trust, which helps groups organize passion plays, said he took full responsibility for what he described as an insensitive idea.
“The whole thing just got bigger and bigger and, of course, with that comes the infrastructure cost,” he said. “Instead of being a £20,000 play it became a £55,000 play and the burden of raising money then falls on us. We were trying to think up some ideas, just bouncing around what would be good, and someone came up with the idea of letting people be crucified for £750.”
“You have clergy wanting to play it safe and businessmen like me trying to raise the funding,” said Stewart-Clark. “There was a difference of opinion and what was a small disagreement has got out of all proportion.”
“If people had wanted to do it they would have been hoisted up there for a couple of minutes,” he said. “It was just a sort of gimmick, but it was tasteless. “If you are put up on a cross it is not to take the place of Jesus or God. It is to empathize with him because it’s not very comfortable and it’s a public disgrace. A crucifixion is a humiliating public execution.”

The story of Peanut — Hero Dog!
The pup, formerly named Petunia, arrived at the Delta Animal Shelter last April with two broken legs, a belly full of carpet and broken ribs. Her former owner was recently convicted of animal abuse, according to a post shared on Monday. She was quickly adopted.
After some time at her new home, she was doing better, until one day when she absolutely lost her damn mind running around the house barking and yelping.
 
But why? Maybe she needed to go outside?
 
Per her people’s post on facebook:
“He let her outside where she went barreling into the field behind our house at full speed,” the letter says. “My husband followed her and to his surprise, he found a naked, shivering, 3-year-old girl curled up in a ball. He scooped her up, wrapped her in his sweatshirt, and brought her inside. He called 911 and reported the incident.”
“By the time the ambulance and police arrived, the little girl could only say one thing – ‘doggie,' Thanks to Peanut, a little girl’s life was saved today.”
The officers who responded to the scene in Rapid River, Michigan, on Friday. The story said the action was taken by child protective services to remove the child and a sibling from their home.

The funniest podcast ever.
We got a fun email from Dennis who recently vacationed in Florida.
 
He saw a few examples of our proud ‘Merica Jesus-heritage — his favorite being a sign that read “Silly bunny, Easter is for Jesus” which is kinda funny when compared to the signs he’s used to seeing like "Bereuet das Ende ist nah" which translates to "Repent the end is nigh"
 
Thanks for the lovely package Dennis! We’re glad you enjoyed our nation’s giant sunny wang-state and don’t worry, we won’t expect too much German beer ;)

HL1 - Methy The Monk - http://nbcnews.to/2oPy2bN
 
A few months ago in Yangon, Myanmar A Buddhist monk was a–rrested after police found more than 400,000 pills of meth in the monk's car.
 
A subsequent search of his monastery turned up 4.2 million pills — worth upwards of $4 million in street value — along with a grenade and ammunition. A statement from the office of Myanmar's leader, State Counselor Aung San Suu Kyi, said that one million kyats ($769) in cash was also found in the vehicle.
 
Myanmar is a major producer of methamphetamine, usually smuggled from the northeast to neighboring countries. It is also the world's second biggest producer of opium the director-general of the Religious Affairs Ministry, Soe Min Tun, acknowledged some surprise. "It is not a very common case, but not impossible to happen. What will happen to the monk is that he will have to give up his monk-hood right away and face trial as an ordinary person," he said.
 
HL2 - Wine Barf 101 - http://huff.to/2oPknSb
 
Police in Lexington County, South Carolina, said Judith Elizabeth Richards-Gartee was allegedly so intoxicated during class on Friday that she reportedly vomited on the classroom floor, according to WIS TV.
 
Administrators at Brookland-Cayce High School in Cayce called police around 9:45 a.m. after noticing Richards-Gartee allegedly acting in a manner that suggested she might be under the influence of alcohol.
 
Besides the alleged vomiting, Richards-Gartee was reportedly unable to stand. School officials removed her from the classroom in a wheelchair and sent her to a school resource officer, according to TheState.com.
 
A deputy from the Lexington County Sheriff’s Office reported seeing a box of wine in her purse. Students in the class told the officer Richards-Gartee was allegedly consuming the wine during class.

A man who accidentally shot himself in the penis in 2015 was sentenced to five years in prison in October after lying about the incident.
 
When questioned by police, the 43-year-old said he was shot by “a black guy (who) tried to rob” him while he was taking out the trash at his apartment.
 
Officers went to Watson’s apartment in the 1500 block of East Nye Street to look for evidence and witnesses to corroborate Watson’s story. No evidence of a shooting was found near the dumpster. A witness told officers he heard screams of pain coming from Watson’s apartment about 1 a.m. that morning.

Unmarried Daughters: Hardly People
 
The first bill (Senate File 471) was set to ban abortions after a detectable heartbeat (about 6 weeks) and also stated that life begins at conception, granting the fetus personhood. Additionally, it required minors to get parental approval, which is not that unusual. However, the verbiage also included a fun little addition to parental approval for women who were “unmarried at the time the abortion was performed or attempted”.
 
So… spinsters need not apply.
 
Happily (ish), the bill was rejected and replaced with a slightly less awful bill, which has passed this committee and is on it’s way to a full vote. The updated bill bans abortions after 20 weeks (which some health exemptions), also states life begins at fertilization and would subject physicians who perform abortions after 20 weeks could be reported to a medical board.
 
No word on how this applies to the sad and lonely women who are not taken in holy matrimony.
Iowa Women Birth Terribleness - Don't be a pregnant woman in Iowa
 
An additional statement on Iowa’s SF 471 and how goddamn incompetent their legislators are. Let me introduce you to Republican Rep. Shannon Lundgren — the manager of 471 — and what happened when she faced a question from fellow Rep. John Forbes, a Democrat. From Newsweek:
“Noting that he has a daughter who is 20 weeks pregnant, Forbes asked that under the bill, would his daughter have to carry her child to term even if a doctor told her there was no longer a heartbeat. "Is that good medicine?"
Forbes wondered.
Lundgren's response:
"This bill wasn't written for the intent to protect or govern on the side of the woman. It was written to save babies' lives, giving the choice and being the voice of those babies...that don't have one. I understand what you're saying—this fetus, this baby, is not alive. I would concur that in that instance, if your daughter's life is not in danger, that yes, she would have to carry that baby."
Let THAT sink in. Also, NOT ONE other legislator called her out on this.
 
Colin Tadlock, the Communications Director for Iowa House Republicans (a fucking thankless traipse through Purgatory), told Newsweek in an email that the statements were taken “out of context” and the Iowa House Republicans tweeted that she “misspoke”.
 
R-kansas Interrogates Your Cervix: Sex Selection and R U DTF?
 
The Governor of Arkansas, Asa Hutchinson, signed into law a measure that would impose fines and prison time on doctors who perform abortions that are based solely on whether the mother wants to have a boy or girl.
I’m skeptical this is a thing. Seriously. But here is how the process would supposedly go: “Under the new law sponsored by Republican Rep. Charlie Collins, a physician performing the abortion would ask the patient if she knows the sex of the child. If she does, the doctor must let her know that it's illegal to have an abortion based solely on gender.
 
The physician would then have to request the woman's medical history related to her entire pregnancy history. Under the legislation, the abortion can't be performed "until reasonable time and effort is spent to obtain the medical records of the pregnant woman."
 
Doctors who violate the ban could face up to a year in prison and up to a $2,500 fine, as well as civil penalties. The woman who receives or attempts to receive the abortion wouldn't face any criminal charges.”
Considering how Arkansas is gratuitously awful, this bill is actually pretty tame. It’s not the first state to ban sex-selection (but the pregnancy interrogation may be a new thing). Here is a list of the other states who are preventing us from becoming China: Arizona, Kansas, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania and South Dakota

announced on International Women’s Day (March 8) , all firms with more than 25 staff will be required to obtain certification of pay equality. The law will apply to both public- and private-sector employers.
 
Thorsteinn Viglundsson, Iceland’s minister for social affairs and equality, commented that: “We want to break down the last of the gender barriers in the workplace. History has shown that if you want progress, you need to enforce it.”
Currently, women in Iceland earn 14% to 18% less than men. The government has pledged to close this gap by 2022.
The country, which has a small population of around 330,000, has been consistently ranked as one of the best countries in the world for gender equality by the World Economic Forum.

Bits of beer news, thanks to listener Janet for writing in and giving me the saddest beer news ever...
 
Chicago area bars have started a protest/boycott of Ballast Point beer.
 
Apparently, it was sold to a parent company, Constellation Brands, in 2015 that is a Super PAC donor to Paul Ryan - $25,000 so far this year. ‘Cuz these assholes aggressively destroy anything good and pure.
All hope is not completely lost. Via the San Diego news article Ballast Point the brewery has reached out via social media:
“Ballast Point does not support Paul Ryan, nor the healthcare bill.”
While our parent company, Constellation, does have a PAC that contributes to candidates on both sides of the aisle, it does so only in the interest of policy issues directly related to the beverage alcohol industry. The PAC’s primary goal is to educate lawmakers on the benefits of our industry as a whole—creating jobs and contributing to our economy.
 
That said, Ballast Point has no direct involvement or input into the actions of Constellation’s PAC.
 
Please know that our only goal as Ballast Point is to brew great beer and provide for our employees and our customers like you.
Unfortunately, the damage has been done, and it’s hard not to think that the money going to the delish beer that Ballast Point creates ultimately means a profit that can go to the forces of evil.

Jenn's Astrology For Assholes
Twenty years ago (on March 26) was pretty much the most exciting day for UFO religious groups in the United States. Anybody remember the Hale-Bopp comet? Well, according to the Heaven’s Gate organization, this comet was the herald of the UFO that would take humanity to The Next Level.
 
Heaven’s Gate was founded in the 70’s by Marshall Applewhite and Bonnie Nettles. Applewhite was raised a strict Presbyterian and was actually in seminary to become a minister when he met Nettles while they were both briefly committed to Psychiatric care. He pretty quickly decided to leave his wife and kids to explore being a bisexual New Age Prophet with Nettles (he totally understood the 70s).
 
It took them about 15 yrs to gain more than a follower or 2, but by the early 90s, there were a few dozen. Nettles and Applewhite, being huge sci-fi fans, decided to combine the Book of Revelations with some of the more fun elements of the Sci-Fi they enjoyed (such as Close Encounters of the Third Kind). A few of their basic tenants included our origins being from a different dimension and that humanity required extraterrestrial help to reach ‘The Kingdom of God’. They also would battle evil intergalactic demons called ‘the Luciferians’.
 
They also felt everything in creation was designed to be an exact duplicate
"Everything was designed to be… an exact duplicate," surviving member Michael Conyers said later. "You were not to come up with, 'Well I'm going to make the pancakes this big.' There was a mixture, a size, how long you cooked it one side, how much the burner was on, how many a person got, how the syrup was poured on it. Everything."
Conyers said that even male members shaved their faces a specific way. The Next Level would be genderless and asexual, and some male members underwent chemical castration to help control sexual urges.
 
At first, they denied they were a suicide cult and claimed that as long as they reached a certain level of higher spiritual attainment God would collect them in his UFO. They had to have healthy bodies in order to make this journey, so they would not have wanted to cause their own deaths.
 
Unfortunately, Bonnie Nettles was stricken with cancer that ravaged her body---causing her to lose an eye and control of most of her body. She died in 1985 with a body that no longer fit with their idea of God-UFO ready. So...back to belief evaluation.
Then in 1996, they received their final answer via a celestial event. The credible-about-anything-that-comes-across-his-desk Art Bell interviewed a gentleman who claimed that a UFO was following the approaching Hale-Bopp comet. Bell gave quite a bit of air time to this topic on his radio show, Coast to Coast (favorite of tin foil hat aficionados for decades) and it was decided that shit was going down Spring of ‘97.
 
Well, that settled that. The God-UFO was on its way and there was a time limit. In mid/late-March of ‘97, 39 members (including Applewhite) began final preparations to meet the Hale-Bopp UFO/God chariot.
 
A few days before the suicide event they had their final group meal at a Marie Callender’s in Carlsbad, CA. The menu (bc they had to all have the exact same thing) was iced teas to drink, dinner salads beforehand with tomato vinegar dressing and Turkey potpie for the entree. Cheesecake with blueberries on top for dessert. When they arrived back to their ranch each took the time to record a final good-bye video, explaining they were ascending to "The Evolutionary Level Above Human." They dressed identically in black track suits and black and white Nike’s. Over the course of a couple of days, they began to commit suicide in groups, with the survivors tending them until the final group. They ate applesauce laced with barbiturates and washed it all down with vodka. To help things along they put bags over their heads and were covered in purple shrouds. They were found by a neighbor who received their final recordings in the mail.
 
Oddly enough, the group still actually exists. There were a few survivors from the California group and others scattered around the country. Their website is still active and is operated (such as it is) by at least a few of the members. (Feast your eyes on THIS visit to the 90’s: http://www.heavensgate.com/)
 
Reincarnation is also one of their tenants, so there may be hope for all of us who missed the last UFO pickup.

Buenos Aires Opens Renamed Subway Station Honoring LGBT Activist Carlos Jáuregui - http://bit.ly/2nlg6Uu
 
Today marked the opening of the newly inaugurated Carlos Jaúregui subway station. Located on the corner of Avenida Santa Fe and Pueyrredón, the stop was previously referred to as the “Santa Fe” stop on the H line.
 
Following a measure approved unanimously last year by the Buenos Aires City Legislature, the station was opened under its new name today by Buenos Aires City mayor Horacio Rodríguez Larreta. The opening represents a landmark step forward for the LGBT community in Argentina, and worldwide, as it is the first station in the world to be named after an LGBTQ activist or AIDS advocate. Carlos Jáuregui was an outspoken defender of human and LGBT rights and was the first president of the Argentine Homosexual Community (CHA).
 
The opening of the now rainbow-themed subway station in Recoleta was celebrated by mayor Rodríguez Larreta on Twitter, who said he was “proud” of honoring him this way.

Today’s Bible lesson: It’s a bad idea to use the good book to smuggle drugs into jail.
“We search every item that is brought into the jail, and the property officer noticed something wrong. There was a bulge in the back cover of the Bible,” Lee County Sheriff Jim Johnson told the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal. “We cut it open and found a powdery substance.”
Courtney Ford, 30, of Nettleton has been charged with possessing an illegal drug and trying to bring contraband into the jail.
 
Ezell said Stephen Jason Estes, 41, of Plantersville, had been sentenced to 40 years in prison, but with 34 suspended, and was awaiting transfer to a state prison when the Bible was left for him.
“We know he knew about it because that day, he kept asking where his Bible was, even before she dropped it off,”
Johnson said

Oklahoma state Senator and creepy looking uncle Ralph Shortey was recently charged for soliciting sex from an underage boy.
 
Greg Mashburn, Cleveland County’s District Attorney, filed charges against Senator Shortey on the 16th of March including engaging in prostitution within 1000 feet of a church (that’s an odd one), child prostitution, and transporting a minor for prostitution
 
Ralph decided to pick up a 17-year-old male for a quick fling at a Super 8 motel where he got the kid stoned on a bit of pot before beginning his sexual tryst with the boy.
 
Nothing says “family values” like paying teenagers for sex. Shortey was also chair of the Trump campaign in the state. So much for “extreme vetting”.
 
 
This headline had to be trimmed for time reasons (and because it was just the right size... hehe), if you want to her it and a fucking crazy stupid funny extra story head over to http://patreon.com/w4w 
 
In another case of religious leaders not understanding the Streisand effect, the Mormon Church tried to stop MormonLeaks from publishing an internal PowerPoint presentation, so that means everyone now gets to see this slide of things Church leaders believe are leading people away from the Gospel. 
 
Mormonleaks lawyers had this to say
“Even if my client were to never lay eyes or fingers upon it again, it would still be disseminated worldwide. You tried to blow out a single candle, but in the process, you knocked it over into a field of dried leaves. You may have extinguished that initial flame. However, your attempted censorship simply caused the document to be further reproduced and redistributed that even a hypothetical divine being could not possibly undo the dissemination
If you really believe that this document needs to be shielded from public view, perhaps you should ask yourself why that is. I imagine that any efforts to keep your inner workings under wraps would be more of an indictment of how the LDS church is doing things than any criticism it could suffer by release of this earthly document.” 
In short, your efforts so far have backfired. Further efforts will backfire more.

So... Texas Still Hates Women - http://huff.to/2nj11pN
 
Because any week that I have trouble finding a story, Southern states always come through with something awful. This week the Texas senate passed SB 125. Any guesses on what it may entail?

Per the Huffington Post

“Senate Bill 125...prevents parents from suing their medical provider if their baby is born with disabilities, even if that doctor discovered the condition during routine prenatal testing and failed to inform the parents.”

 It’s being touted as a ‘sanctity of life’ bill. Basically, broken down, it allows doctors to withhold pertinent information from parents, legally.

‘The architects of the so-called “wrongful-birth” bill have argued it would protect children with disabilities and prevent doctors from facing unnecessary lawsuits. “It is unacceptable that doctors can be penalized for embracing the sanctity of life,” Senator Brandon Creighton (R-TX) said in a press release when he introduced the legislation last fall’

The final vote passed 21-9 and was pretty much split along the party lines. Sen. Jose Rodriguez argued against the bill: ““It seems to be all about restricting and further limiting a woman’s right to exercise her choice as to what she’s going to do in the case of serious defects in the fetus, congenital defects in the fetus,
 
The Blondrog Cometh... http://lat.ms/2ndb9yF
 
Tomi Lahren, the blonde poster girl of the conservative movement and host of her own commentary talk show (called Tomi *eye roll*) on ‘The Blaze’ has really upset her side of the aisle.
 
You may have seen Tomi touting her special brand of conservative sorority girl political speak. She has been a guest on (of course) Fox News, The Daily Show and, most recently, The View. It was her appearance on The View that has created this most recent kerfluffle.
 
Tomi refers to herself as a “constitutional conservation” and is an outspoken proponent of smaller government. (She also acknowledges that she is referred to as ‘White Power Barbie’.) Surprisingly, when chatting with the women of The View, she actually made an understandable comparison when she states, “I’m pro-choice. You can stay out of my guns and you can stay out of my body.
 
It took practically no time for the right to lose their goddamn minds. Her show has been canceled for at least a week and Glenn Beck (her evil sorcerer mentor) chided her for being “intellectually dishonest”.
 
Now, I am NOT here to voice support for TL. She’s a young, attractive megaphone for the alt-right and their bigoted, anti-intellectual viewpoints. And being used to entice ‘new blood’ into this movement... well, she sucks. She jumped on the BLM = KKK and that sitting during the pledge of Allegiance is traitorous. But I have to say this is one of the few things that I’ve heard from conservative pundits that is actually not hypocritical cognitive dissonance. And they are not letting her get away with such shenanigans.
 
But she’s not going down without a fight. Maybe? I’m not sure. Anyway, this is what she tweeted in rebuttal: “No one hunts small deer, this too shall pass.”
 
Shea’s Story- Vagina Dentata!- http://bit.ly/2nKhWDh
 
Theresa Bartram, from Brighton, suffered from stress incontinence after giving birth and struggled with confidence in the bedroom. The 50-year-old had gone without sex for seven years until she was referred for an operation to lift her prolapsed bladder using a plastic mesh sling called a transvaginal tape (TVT) to stop her leaking. It worked and sex was better than ever – until two years later in 2009 when she almost sliced off the end of her partner’s manhood.

“It was like it had grown teeth,” she recalled. “His willy was bright red and spouting blood. There was a big red stain spreading between us on the sheets. “After that he was scared of my lady garden and approached it as if it was a Venus flytrap and he was a bluebottle. 

Theresa was sure her fella’s gory injury had been caused by the mesh she could feel inside her.
 
But every time she saw her doctor she was assured it was working just fine.

Theresa and her partner avoided sex as they were too scared to try again – and six months later they ended up splitting.

Six Year Old Girl Gives Up Having A Birthday Party And Presents To Feed 125 Homeless People!

Armani Crews of Chicago let her parents know that for her 6th birthday she didn’t want a party with friends, she wanted to feed the homeless. When her dad warned she wouldn't get any presents, she replied, "That's okay. As long as they can eat, I'm fine."
 
Her mother offered to have them hand out sandwiches, but she insisted that they serve the menu that had been planned for the party: chicken, fish, spaghetti, pizza and mashed potatoes.
 
They also collected bottled water and fruits and as word began to spread put together care packages, each with everyday essentials like toothbrushes, toothpaste, deodorant, hand sanitizer, and protein bars 
 
Armani helped put together these packages every night and got more and more excited for her birthday. The day of, March 8, Armani wore a tiara and a smile as she stood with other volunteers to hand out hot meals and care packages.

About 125 people were lined around the block.

"It was a beautiful thing to see and a blessing," her mother said. "One man told us that he hadn't had a hot meal in a long time."
The family plans to make the gesture a family tradition and host more food drives in the future.

We received a bit of feedback regarding show t-shirts so I have a bit of follow-up. Right now we’re leaning toward a company which provides print on demand services and yes, there will absolutely be women’s styles available as part of the lineup. We’ve ordered some samples, so we’ll post some pics on the facebook page once they arrive. Please keep the messages coming in so we can gauge support. Also, let me know if you’d prefer screen printed vs garment printing since screen printing is quite a bit more expensive.
 
Nice email from Rebel Ox as follow up from our story regarding the Texas bill to allow doctors to lie to their patients:
“Regarding the story of doctors having the right to not disclose a patient's condition regarding her baby..... The AMA (American medical association) and the AAPS (association of American physicians and surgeons) have a Patient's Bill of Rights that they follow. The first and fundamental ethical requirement is "the patient's Right to Know".
 
It states that a physician will be open and honest with a patient and that the patient has a right to know their past and present medical status and be free of any mistaken beliefs concerning their condition.
 
Now, as far as being able to sue for a breach of this, I'm not sure. I know this was proposed as a federal law at one time and was shot down. But because it is accepted as ethical by the AMA and AAPS, a doctor could be sued for malpractice for not following 'reasonable standard of care". It would have to be proven that the patient (or fetus?) was injured in some way because of it. I know that every hospital I've worked in, we take the patient's right to know very seriously. Just an FYI and my 2 cents.... Love you guys (and even though I hope Jenn had fun on her trip, I can't wait for her to be back!)”

  • She (and husband) looked into alternative therapies while awaiting traditional (real) treatment
  • Juan Gonzalez, a naturopath, who they consulted told them that chemo is for losers and guaranteed a cure within three months
  • During the time of Gonzalez’s five-month “treatment”, wife’s one tumor turned to seven and the couple sued the quack
  • By the time she got chemo, it was too late and she died
  • Grief-stricken and pissed off Ahmetovic shot the quack dead only a few days later
HL2 - Go Texas... Yeah, I typed that. - http://bit.ly/2nKaTWU
  • Texas State Representative from Houston, Jessica Farrar, has filed a new bill
  • Bill proposes men pay a $100 fine for "unregulated masturbatory emissions" and undergo a digital rectal exam to get a vasectomy, a colonoscopy or a Viagra prescription.
  • The new rules would be explained in a booklet titled, "A Man's Right to Know."
  • bill penalizes masturbatory emissions outside a vagina or a medical facility, describing them as "an act against an unborn child" that fails to preserve "the sanctity of life."
  • The bill’s provisions echo the 2011 Texas law requiring women to take two trips to a clinic to get an abortion.
HL3 - SB 149 Sucks & So Does SD - http://bit.ly/2mNRVPT
  • South Dakota SB 149 (which passed the SD legislature with significant margins) was signed by the fuckhead gov. Dennis Daugaard
  • The bill allows taxpayer-funded agencies to refuse to provide any service, including adoption or foster care services, on the basis of the agency’s religious or moral convictions.
  • Many child placement agencies are faith-based organizations, such as Catholic adoption agencies, but the new law makes no distinction between agencies that are religious or otherwise affiliated.
  • Laura Durso, vice president of the LGBT research and communications at the Center for American Progress, said, “Same-sex couples are six times as likely to foster than different-sex couples are, and this bill proves once again that opponents of equality are happy to put children at risk and deny them permanent homes to further their anti-LGBT agenda.”
  • James Esseks, director of the ACLU’s LGBT Project, said,
“These religious exemptions laws run contrary to this belief by encouraging people to pick and choose which laws they are going to follow based on their religious beliefs.”

The Effects of Witchcraft Attacks and How to Stop It!
From former witch Beth Eckert on her youtube show “The Other Side of Darkness; my journey into the light”
 
Follow her blog and hear her testimony about how she came out of Satanic ritual abuse, new age witchcraft, drug addiction, and so much more! Because of Jesus Christ who has been chasing her, her whole life...
 
“A lot of us are used to thinking that witchcraft is just what you see on TV and in the movies. What comes to mind is Maleficent in the Disney movie or the wicked witch in the Wizard of Oz or Harry Potter. So things that are fun or perfectly innocent and good like Harry Potter or things that are so far out of our reality that we can’t even comprehend that it would be something real.”
 
The truth is witchcraft is absolutely pervasive in our world, witchcraft is a rebellion against God, and it is using our intent and emotions harnessed by the powers of the forces of darkness and the kingdom of darkness.
 
Everyone can do witchcraft and everyone makes covenants with the kingdom of darkness because of the slithery devil bad guy!
 
Instead embrace the Jesus… don’t forget about generational curses and blood rights!!! You need to get professional that has gone through their own light to come in and break off thouse pieces of curse from your family and your blood…
 
Christ is the glue that gets us through!
 
Different areas we experience the witchcraft attack
 
Head, emotions, sleep, relationship w/ god, sexual life, body, mind, family, and in our electronic devices and things of that nature…?
 
Each of these correlates with pieces of the armor of god,
 
Side effects include…
Lightheadedness, brain fog, headaches, eye pain, dizziness, scatter brain, blurry vision, depression, suicidal thoughts, violent thoughts, unstable, sleepless, tired, hard time waking up, insomnia, restlessness, nightmares, night terrors, inability to dream, attacking your relationship with god, disinterest to read the bible, inability to read the bible, or concentrate on the bible, unable to pray or worship, being angry with god, turning your back on god, sexually perverse thoughts, insatiable sex drive, no sex drive, adulterous thoughts, heart burn, hurting, pain, cold or flu, illnesses in general, fears of stuff, panic attacks, anxiety, addictions, attractions to occult, general chaos, cell phone breaks, apps brake, lights flicker, shocked often, internet not working, emails don't send, files deleted, and much more!!!!
 
Take 2 Jesus and call me in the morning

Transtexan - http://bit.ly/2lJu2Me
  • Texas has a new anti-transgender bill (SB6) scheduled for first hearing this week (underway still as we record)
  • The hearing began with state Sen. Lois Kolkhorst, R-Brenham, explaining that she intended her bill to protect privacy and codify “what has been accepted practice in Texas and elsewhere for decades.”
  • Would prohibit transgender-friendly bathroom, locke-room and changing room policies in public schools, universities and in government buildings
  • Would overturn city and county requirements for transgender bathrooms
  • Prohibit cities and counties from withholding contracts based on a company’s bathroom policy
  • Conservative groups have launched a massive media campaigns to push passage, including Vision America, Texas Values, and others. Fortunately, the ACLU is also working to promote actual true information against the bill.

  • proposes the suppression of women’s rights, including the right to vote, “I think women want male leadership, and so men have to be strong,”
  • believes that fathers should be able to marry their daughters. In his view, fathers have a greater interest in taking care of their offspring, as opposed to men who marry into the family.

Texas Knows Bestest - http://bit.ly/2nkPfbL
 
  • Because Roe vs. Wade wasn’t enough and as we heard last week, women are out of their mind 25% of the time because of periods, lawmakers in Texas, last week managed to push through a bill that would allow doctors not to tell patients if something was wrong with their unborn child.
  • Why?! You may ask, Because it’s possible that if you know that there are fetal abnormalities — ranging from severe disabilities to the possibility that the child could be stillborn, or born with its brain outside of its head, or something like that — then you might consider the perfectly legal procedure known as an abortion.
  • Right now if doctors intentionally withhold that kind of information from you, you can sue them
  • Conservatives dislike this because they believe that a doctor who is opposed to abortion should not have to tell patient things that may cause them to want an abortion, and also because they are largely opposed to malpractice lawsuits
  • The legislators pushing this bill say they’re doing it because they care so very much about the rights of the disabled… though not enough, apparently, that they’d accept a Medicaid expansion so that poor women who give birth to children with severe disabilities can afford to care for them. But they absolutely adore them right up until the moment they exit the womb.
  • Rachel Tiddle, a woman who testified at yesterday’s hearing
  • Rachel Tiddle, who unknowingly carried a fetus with severe abnormalities, said if she knew her fetus had severe health issues, she would have tried one of many experimental therapies to try and save her baby’s life.
  • Instead, she gave birth to a stillborn baby.

“It’s not a doctor’s right to manipulate the family by lying, and it is not [a] doctor’s right to decide whether an experimental therapy is worth trying,” Tiddle told the committee. “There is always the chance, there is always hope.”

Luckily the bill has a few more steps it needs to take, unluckily it’s in Texas...

Transgender 'toxic tush doctor' who 'injected women with super glue, cement, and tire sealant' - http://dailym.ai/2nl3pK0
  • Oneal Ron Morris, 'left women ill and disfigured after illegal surgery'
  • She allegedly injected 'patients' with super glue, tire sealant, and cement
  • She is facing seven charges, including manslaughter after woman died
  • In addition to multiple counts of practicing medicine without a license with serious bodily injury, she is also facing a manslaughter charge after one of her 'patients' died following surgery.
  • The victim, Shatarka Nuby, passed away from acute and chronic respiratory failure reportedly caused by the silicone used in the procedure while serving time in a Tallahassee prison in 2012.
Also, the article from the Daily Mail is a fucking embarrassment. Even more so than they're used to. At the roughly mid-way point there's a random courtroom-esk picture captioned:
"Transgender: In addition to multiple counts of practicing medicine without a license with serious bodily injury, Morris (pictured) is also facing a manslaughter charge after one of her 'patients' died following surgery"
As if being a fake doctor-murder-person is the definition of "Transgender."
It's quality reporting like this that makes me appreciate a good episode of Skeptics with a K. Listening to them rip bullshit up like this is a special kind of great.
Ugh.

A Ring Of Demon Fire - http://bit.ly/2nkOMGC
  • A disturbing story out of Nicaragua, the Associated Press reports that 25-year-old Vilma Trujillo Garcia died after being thrown into a fire as part of an exorcism
  • Prosecutors said evangelical pastor Juan Gregorio Rocha Romero and four other people had been arrested.
  • Rocha Romero denied wrongdoing, telling the newspaper La Prensa that the woman fell into the fire without anyone pushing her and a demon exited her body.
  • Allegedly, Garcia tried to attack church members with a machete the week before… though, if I knew members of my church were the types of people who would throw me in a fire, then whipping out a machete sounds like pretty damn good self-defense.
Her husband was, as you might expect, devastated
“It’s unforgivable what they did to us. They killed my wife, the mother of my two little ones,” he said. “Now what am I going to tell them?“

For Decades, a Religious Leader Abused Boys for Masturbating; They Had to “Bleed for Jesus” - http://bit.ly/2nkK4Z6
  • Inthe 1970s, at Winchester College, a boarding school in England, a man named John Smyth allegedly punished boys for the “crime” of masturbation by telling them they had to “bleed for Jesus”… before physically assaulting them.
  • Five of the 13 victims who came forward in 1982 told investigators for the [Iwerne Trust] that they had received 12 beatings and about 650 strokes. The other eight said they had each been hit about 14,000 times over a period of years.
  • Some of the victims received up to 100 strokes at a time for masturbating, having indecent thoughts or looking at pornography — beatings that caused some to faint or bleed for up to three weeks, the trust found.
  • That was 1982. You won’t be surprised to hear that nothing happened at the time. The beatings weren’t reported to the police. Instead, Smyth was sent to Zimbabwe… where he was charged with killing a teenager. He denied the charges, and they were later dropped. But court records showed he continued to abuse other children in that country.

“It’s about a mindset that allows this to happen. This sort of muscular Christianity enforced by theology, education and the cane that dominated the public education system and produced your caricature Englishman — strong, emotionally incapable in some ways, reserved and superior,” [priest and journalist Giles Fraser] added. “I think the idea that this is just about Smyth is in itself a cover-up,” Mr. Fraser said, “and it’s because the church is desperate for people not to say how all of this grows out of theology.”

 
War Of The Z-Words - http://bit.ly/2nkXtRf
 
local radio station in Randolph County, Indiana, sent out emergency alerts about a zombie attack and a related disease outbreak in the area Wednesday.
WZZY 98.3 FM radio station, on which the broadcasts were played, was taken off air
"Local alerts from WZZY 98.3 FM regarding a zombie attack and disease outbreak from deceased bodies is a result of the radio station alerting system being hacked. There is no local emergency. We have contacted the radio station and notified the Indiana Department of Homeland Security. Again there is no emergency or disease outbreak in Randolph County,"
The sheriff’s office reportedly said in a statement on Facebook, which, however, is no longer available.
Randolph County emergency management director Charles Shaneyfelt reportedly noted that the radio announcements warned about "a disease outbreak, diseased bodies, and zombies" and traditional emergency alert tones were used to broadcast the messages.
However, not many people believed the alert.
“Stay vigilant, folks, odds are the zombies would go straight for the sheriff’s department Facebook account first,” one Facebook user reportedly commented on the sheriff’s post.
Sheriff Ken Hendrickson also joked about the incident with local newspaper the Star Press.
"I'm glad my sons made me watch a couple of episodes of 'The Walking Dead' so I know how to kill them,"

What The World Really Needs Is Another Feminine Hygiene Product Created By A Man - http://bit.ly/2mxunBI
  • Chiropractor, “Dr” Daniel Dopps, of Wichita, Kansas, has invented super glue for the pussy to hold in that nasty, nasty period stuff
  • The still in development product is called Mensez Feminine Lip-Stick. Clever huh?
  • What it does is basically glue the labia minora together such that menstrual fluid is held inside until urinating, when the glue releases letting it all out.
  • This has understandably caused some uproar online with many accusing him of not understanding the female anatomy and straight up misogyny
  • I’m guessing this isn’t a product for those women who pee a bit when they sneeze
  • Responding to a commenter, he said,

“You as a woman should have come up with a better solution than diapers and plugs, but you didn’t. Reason being women are focused on and distracted by your period 25 percent of the time, making them far less productive than they could be. Women tend to be far more creative than men, but their periods that [sic] stifle them and play with their heads.”

From the ‘shocking but true’ file, Ark Park Not an Economic Boom - http://bit.ly/2m0Bm2I
  • The Ark Encounter theme park was partially funded with tons of economic incentives from Kentucky and Williamstown with the understanding that this big, new attraction would drive up local economic activity
  • Well, it seems it hasn’t turned out that way. Judge-executive, Steve Wood, said, ““It’s been a great thing but it’s not brought us any money,” How is that great now?
  • Right now, Grant county is on the edge of bankruptcy, to the point where there may be lost jobs.
  • Grant county has the same number of non-chain restaurants and hotels it had in Dec. 2015 even though they voted to make the county “wet” (which is also ironic since Hamm is a believer in non-drinking)

“I was one of those believers that once the Ark was here everything was going to come in. But it’s not done it. It’s not done it. I think the Ark’s done well and I’m glad for them on that. But it’s not done us good at all.”

 
Marital Rape is A-Ok in Ohio - http://ind.pn/2m0vOFJ
  • It is legal for a man to drug and rape his wife in Ohio as long as he doesn’t use, 'force or the threat of force'
  • State reps, Reps. Greta Johnson (D-Akron) and Kristin Boggs (D-Columbus) tried to eliminate spousal exemptions for sex offenses.
  • According to the Akron Beacon Journal, “In Ohio, husbands or wives can rape their spouses so long as there is no force or threat of force. The “spousal exemption” means husbands can drug and rape wives, and avoid a first-degree felony rape charge.”
Rep. Johnson, a former prosecutor, said,
 
“Women and men experiencing sexual violence at the hands of their spouses should not be denied the right to seek justice just because they happen to be married to the offender.
 
I am appalled that there is not a larger discussion in our state about this issue. I am deeply disappointed that none of my Republican colleagues signed on as co-sponsors to this bill.”

 

It seems that as long as Ohio’s GOP is controlled by Christian zealots, women will remain 2nd class citizens.

Jenn Doth Protest Too Much
Thanks to listener Alan for pointing me towards this story!
 
Mack Major, the living embodiment of ‘methinks he doth protest too much’. - http://huff.to/2m0xTkS
 
Eden Decoded: http://bit.ly/2m0FRL0
 
An excerpt from Major’s book, Diva, Goddess, Queen: Breaking The Power Of Soul Ties, Lust And Sexual Demons.
“Many of you who are reading this have sex toys in your possession right now. And whether you want to accept it as fact or not: those sex toys are an open portal between the demonic realm and your own life. As long as you have those sex toys in your home, you have a doorway that can allow demons to not only access your life at will but also to torment you, hinder and destroy certain parts of your life as it relates to sex and your relationships.”
Another excerpt from a book called Hedonism: Destroying Demonic Sexual Strongholds:
“There are such things as sex demons. And the danger in masturbating is that one could inadvertently summon a sex demon to attach itself to you through the act of masturbating. And once that demon attaches, it is difficult to get it to leave. It will drive you to masturbate, even when you don’t want to. You’ll be hit with urges to play with yourself so powerful that only an orgasm will allow you some temporary relief.”
How To Not Eat Your Wife
Top Saudi Sheikh issues bizarre fatwa allowing men to EAT their wives if they are hungry - http://bit.ly/2m0xRJG
  • Saudi Arabian grand mufti Sheikh Abdul Aziz bin Abdullah allegedly issued the guidelines to allow a husband to eat his wife's body parts in extreme circumstances.
  • Men in Saudi Arabia "can eat their wives if they are suffering severe hunger" under a bizarre new fatwa
  • The cleric is reported to have said the ruling represents the "sacrifice of women and obedience to her husband"
  • A statement reportedly from the cleric's office said: “A fatwa attributed to the Mufti of Saudi Arabia, Abdul Aziz bin Abdullah, which allows a man to eat his wife or parts of her body if the husband was afflicted with a severe hunger, raised concern and debate over social media since yesterday evening.
The Patron's Sexy Beating
Former Members Say Church Controls Sex Lives, Behavior With Violent Punishment - http://bit.ly/2mxFQkQ
  • Forty-three former members of an evangelical church in western North Carolina say they were subjected to years of emotional and physical abuse, according to The Associated Press.
  • Ex-congregants of the Word of Faith Fellowship in Rutherford County told The Associated Press in on-the-record interviews that instead of finding inner peace and eternal life, they were regularly punched, smacked, choked, slammed to the floor or thrown through walls in the name of the Lord.
  • Victims of the violence, they say, included pre-teens and toddlers - even crying babies, who were vigorously shaken, screamed at and sometimes smacked to banish demons.
  • The Associated Press also obtained audio from what is called "blasting." The Associated Press said a "blasting" is a verbal onslaught often conducted in hours-long sessions meant to cast out devils.
  • To hear the audio, click http://bit.ly/2m0HrfA (but really, you don't want to...)
  • Five members of the Rutherford County church are expected to stand trial this spring after being indicted by a North Carolina grand jury on charges of assault, kidnapping and attempted strangulation of Matthew Fenner, who was allegedly beaten in January 2013.
  • Fenner says he was beaten in the church after a service by parishioners who were trying to "cure him of being gay."

Waiting 4 Wrath - Episode 120 - The One Where Shelley Segal Sells Seashells to Seagulls

February 24, 2017
00:0000:00
In This Week’s Show Shelley Says Seagulls In The Second Section By the Sea Shore!
 
Now, grab a beer and help us test the god hypothesis — because, while Papa (the Maori Mother Earth goddess) hasn’t struck us down yet, we are trying her patience!
 
Shea’s Life Lesson
This week I learned that the easiest way to boil an egg without using a costly egg timer, is to pop an egg into a pot of boiling water and get in your car and drive in a straight line at 60 miles an hour and as soon as you get three miles call your wife to take the eggs out!
 
Jenn’s Actual Lesson
Did you know that, according to the North American Menominee Tribe, the Aurora Borealis was created by a friendly tribe of giants? They were called manabai'wok and the Northern lights were caused by their torches as they went about fishing and hunting in the dark.

Headlines

 
Hammy is at it again - http://bit.ly/2lBOGdX
  • We all know that Ken Ham is a dipshit young-earth creationist, that’s not news. He tells everyone who will listen to this himself.
  • He believes that the earth is only about 6000 years old (beer has been around longer than that)
  • Now he’s tweeted about his latest soon-to-be-added addition to his dumbass Ark Park, posting pictures of the exhibit
  • They’re building a diorama of pre-flood wickedness, featuring battles between humans, giants, and dinosaurs fighting in a Roman type arena
  • Holy shit this guy is a fucking moron. I realize that is an ad-hominem attack, but he makes it so easy.
Ashville idiot pastor has a problem with dolls - http://avlne.ws/2lQwRui
 
Available to Patrons at http://patreon.com/w4w 
  • After watching a story on Good Morning America, Rev. Keith Ogden, of Ashville’s Hill Street Baptist Church had a mental tizzy-fit
  • He sent a message to his followers titled,
"KILLING THE MINDS OF MALE BABIES."
  • The story is that American Girl (owned by toy giant Mattel) introduced a GASP male doll named Logan
  • American Girl said that a male doll has been a top request for decades
  • Well, righteous crusader, Dipshit Ogden, won’t have it. I’ll just let this narrow-minded putz speak for himself…
"There are those in this world who want to alter God's creation of the male and female," he wrote. "The devil wants to kill, steal and destroy the minds of our children and grandchildren by perverting, distorting and twisting (the) truth of who God created them to be."
"Now you are going to have little boys playing with baby dolls and that's not cool," he said. "We need to get back to our old values and morals."
"It just doesn't make sense," Ogden said. "It's not natural for a boy to act like a girl. It's not natural for a girl to want to be a boy. ...You've got the government and people who placate this mess instead of telling little boys they can't change their biology."
No word on whether he’s ever heard of GI Joe (though that’s probably okay since he kicks ass)
 
Dipshit Rednecks lie to cover dipshittyness - http://wapo.st/2lQv2NQ
  • Fuckhead hunting guides, Walker Daugherty and Michael Bryant, were leading a hunting party in southern Texas very near the Mexico border when gunfire erupted injuring Daugherty and one of the people they were leading
  • The asshole guides said that they’d been attacked by immigrants who’d crossed over from Mexico and wanted to steal their RV
  • They said further that the immigrants wanted to kill everyone in the party.
  • They raised over $26K from a Gofundme. Texas moron Agriculture Commissioner, Sid Miller, shared it to 400K followers on facebook saying,
“This is why we need the wall and to secure our borders,”
It was all a fucking lie.
  • Suspicious authorities called out the border patrol who found no evidence of an illegal crossing, there were no unidentified shell casings and no signs of pedestrian traffic to or from the ranch
  • What really happened, Sheriff Dominguez said, was much simpler and less nefarious: Daugherty shot his client, and Bryant shot Daugherty.

The Shelley Segal Seagull Quiz!!
 
Question 1
California seagulls are known to be incredibly smart, as we can see in the studio tonight. Similarly to our guest they also are known to migrate inland, often through farmlands. What major western city has grown to revere seagulls, even going so far as to build a stone monument to them, after the gulls appeared and saved the local crops from insects?
 
Hint: They saw the birds as a sign of Elohim
 
Answer: Salt Lake City
 
Question 2
Unlike Shelley, seagulls are not known for their songs, though they do have some other useful adaptations. One of them you can see on many gull species, a prominent spot on their beak. Adolescent gulls will peck at this spot, causing the adult bird to do what?
 
Hint: Human children are known to poke their parents for this same reason
 
Answer: It causes the adult to feed the babies by regurgitating their food.
 
Question 3
Across the world, local governments have installed bristle-covered poles, sticky tiles, and even trained falcons to keep seagulls away. In fact, Postal workers have been taken off duty in seagull hot spots to keep them safe from what bizarre behavior?
 
Hint: Hitchcock may have been on to something…
 
Answer: The bird gets fiercely territorial and have been known, in many cases, to attack humans.
 
In many Native American cultures animals represent different attributes and are often looked at as a totem, seagulls are no different. What symbolism does the seagull represent?
 
Hint: Many of these traits I would say I see in you.
 
Answer: carefree attitude, versatility, freedom (http://bit.ly/2lQEaC5)
 
Question 4
It is well known that seagulls use many different feeding methods, from dropping mollusks on hard rocks to break them open to stomping their feet on the ground tricking worms into believing it’s raining. One of my favorite feeding techniques comes from the Heermann’s Gull whose method could be easily be confused with what impulse control disorder?
 
Hint: Winona Ryder allegedly has this disorder.
 
Answer: Kleptomania

Same-sex marriage laws linked to fewer youth suicide attempts, new study (and anyone with human emotions) says - http://to.pbs.org/2lBW6h9
 
  • Legalization of same-sex marriage appears to be linked to a decrease in adolescent suicide, based on a new analysis published today in JAMA Pediatrics. The results give more context to the potential effects of social policy on mental health.
  • The study took place during a period where the suicide rate generally rose in the U.S., highlighting the fact that more intervention is still needed.
  • Suicide is the 10th-leading cause of death in the U.S. and the second for people aged 10 to 24. But young LGB people are particularly affected, attempting suicide at four times the rate of straight youth, according to the Trevor Project, an organization that works to prevent suicide among LGBT youth.
“It’s a real risk factor, a feeling that you’re at odds with your family or community,” Schwartz said. “It’s very painful, and can be very frightening. You feel like you’re going to be left out on your own.”
Before we go, if you or someone you know is struggling with suicide please call The Trevor Project at 1-866-488-7386 or visit them online at www.thetrevorproject.org

Thanks to Matt from Atheism 101 podcast for joining us for furry Nazi’s last week. A101 just released their religious bullshit in February episode and I’d like to take a moment to congratulate Matt on getting the Blaze to evict his throat monster, I’m just sorry they had to jamb so many candles into him…
 
Speaking of furries jamming things into boxes, listener Fenrir (most infamous of the many wolves in Norse mythology) reached out to let us know that not all furries are horrible dickhead nazis
I’m a Canadian fur but unsure of numbers for the whole of Canada, but my province (Ontario) approx 1850 furs.
For the community in general, politically all over the spectrum, I have met Alt-left furs, as well as conservative furs (who celebrated the Trump victory *shudders*) The furry community at its heart are simply those who like anthropomorphic animal characters, such as Judy Hopps and Nick Wilde from Zootopia.
Not all of us have fursuits as they are quite expensive and many of us simply can't afford the time nor resources to maintain one.
I found the community to be similar to the atheist community, lots of different views and opinions, and for the most part, we try to be rational and open.
Foxler from the story is not a representative of furs and most I know would disassociate themselves from him and his views. Also, most of us only roleplay as our fursonas within the furry community. Other furs have been in the community longer than I have, and have gone out in suit, and for the most part, have been well received by the general public
So there ya have it, from the wolf's mouth. Furs are normal people who like to dress up as normal animals and have normal movie nights. If you’d like to know more — because our listeners are awesome — Fenrir has volunteered to try to answer questions about the furry community in the hopes of spreading a little knowledge about another marginalized group.
 
So, just like when we talk to Jim about the LGBTQ stuff we encourage you to send us your serious, silly, stupid or thoughtful questions on twitter , via email or by visiting waiting4wrath.com . Given that we’re an audio show voicemails at the Drunk Dial Line: (513) 760–0463 are always appreciated.
 
Speaking of voicemails, you can also send us texts like Matt… who said...
Hey, I’m not drunk but hello! Matt
Thanks, Matt, always a blast to have you on. Now we need to line up Tim lest the scales of atheist podcast be unbalanced…
 
Find both the guys at: Atheism101Podcast.com
 
If the Drunk Dial line isn’t your favorite thing you can go to the website and leave us a voicemail just like Stevie did by clicking on the SpeakPipe sidebar item.
 
Unfortunately, it was a little garbled so we won’t play the audio, but we will say thanks for sending us some love!
We got a voicemail from German Denis - because we weren’t done with his kind nature!
 
We drank his beer, ate his candy and then demanded he call us and explains how to say words with backward letters. Fortunately, again, our listeners are amazing!
 
We’d like to mention ReasonCon again.
 
You’ll hear a jingle for it in this and random upcoming episodes as we prepare to go. If you’d like to help us survive the trip — I hear it’s hot and lice-y in NC, and shea’s pelt will need conditioner and tiny combs — you can get more wrath at patreon, donate directly via PayPal or as some listeners have started doing, visit Amazon.com by clicking on the link on our website first. It won’t cost you an extra penny but Amazon gives us a little finders fee for sending you to them, it’s win-win.
 
And to our Canadian listener who asked and the hoards of other Canucks I’m sure are dying to know — yes, the Amazon link will work if you’re in Canada. We’re not 100% sure about other international listeners but there’s a good chance that if you can order through amazon at all, our link will likely work.

xHamster to the (sex) rescue - http://bit.ly/2kw2uJD
Utah’s legislature rejected the idea of adopting a comprehensive sexual education program to replace the existing abstinence-only stupidity
 
Porn site xHamster has decided to assist the state’s residents on that front
"Utahns consume the most porn per capita of any state, but have some of the lowest levels of sexual education," xHamster says in a pop-up to the site. "We're here to change that."
Even though they acknowledged that their current program is having little effect in lessening rates of teen pregnancy and STIs, a change of system was voted down 12-2 along party lines.
 
HB215, sponsored by Rep. Brian King, D-Salt Lake City, which would have allowed for both abstinence-based and comprehensive programs, with parents able to select one of those options — or opt out completely — on behalf of their child.
"While we love porn," the post said, "we don't think that it should be relied on for sex ed any more than Star Wars is a substitute for science class."
Utah Representative Let's Holy Father Get The Bill - http://bit.ly/2kPtdNs
Utah republican representative, Jason Chaffetz, held a town hall meeting in Cottonwood Heights to a full capacity crowd. So full in fact that another 1500 people were left outside.
 
The meeting was full of people protesting Trump, his policies, and calling for Chaffetz, Chairman of the House Oversight Committee, to investigate President Donald Trump
 
He told the Deseret News (Mormon’s own “news” paper) regarding the meeting, "Absolutely. I know there were," he said, suggesting it was "more of a paid attempt to bully and intimidate" than a reflection of the feelings of his 3rd District constituents.
 
Some of the protesters took his bullshit to heart and decided to send Chaffetz an Invoice for their time.
  • Line items: Paid protest hours 4 @ $100 per/hr.
  • Fee for being callously dismissed by representative 1 @ $50
  • Fee for being labeled out-of-state radical 1@ $50
  • total $500
  • Note: Thanks for bringing it to our attention that this was a paid event.
Evil (apparently) Does Die - http://bit.ly/2kw6hqq
Leslie Charping died in January, leaving behind a relieved family
In what may be the most honest obit ever penned, his daughter made sure that all who read it knew the true measure of the man.
 
I’ll just read it in its entirety to allow it to speak for itself:
"Leslie Ray 'Popeye' Charping was born in Galveston on November 20, 1942, and passed away January 30, 2017, which was 29 years longer than expected and much longer than he deserved. Leslie battled with cancer in his latter years and lost his battle, ultimately due to being the horse's ass he was known for. He leaves behind 2 relieved children; a son Leslie Roy Charping and daughter, Shiela Smith along with six grandchildren and countless other victims including an ex-wife, relatives, friends, neighbors, doctors, nurses and random strangers.
"At a young age, Leslie quickly became a model example of bad parenting combined with mental illness and a complete commitment to drinking, drugs, womanizing and being generally offensive. Leslie enlisted to serve in the Navy, but not so much in a brave & patriotic way but more as part of a plea deal to escape sentencing on criminal charges. While enlisted, Leslie was the Navy boxing champion and went on to sufficiently embarrassing his family and country by spending the remainder of his service in the Balboa Mental Health Hospital receiving much needed mental healthcare services.
"Leslie was surprisingly intelligent, however, he lacked ambition and motivation to do anything more than being reckless, wasteful, squandering the family savings and fantasizing about "get rich quick" schemes. Leslie's hobbies included being abusive to his family, expediting trips to heaven for the beloved family pets and fishing, which he was less skilled with than the previously mentioned. Leslie's life served no other obvious purpose, he did not contribute to society or serve his community and he possessed no redeeming qualities besides quick witted sarcasm which was amusing during his sober days.
"With Leslie's passing, he will be missed only for what he never did; being a loving husband, father and good friend. No services will be held, there will be no prayers for eternal peace and no apologizes to the family he tortured. Leslie's remains will be cremated and kept in the barn until 'Ray,' the family donkey's wood shavings run out. Leslie's passing proves that evil does in fact die and hopefully marks a time of healing and safety for all."

Jenn’s Story
Lawmakers like to call pregnant women everything but human lately:
Pregnant women are “hosts” and their bodies no longer belong to them, Oklahoma State Rep. Justin Humphrey.
this is how Humphrey justified the unconstitutional bill he recently introduced, which requires pregnant women to get the fetus’s father’s permission to obtain an abortion:
“Ultimately, he said, his intent was to let men have a say. “I believe one of the breakdowns in our society is that we have excluded the man out of all of these types of decisions,” he said. “I understand that they feel like that is their body,” he said of women. “I feel like it is a separate — what I call them is, is you’re a ‘host.’ And you know when you enter into a relationship you’re going to be that host and so, you know, if you pre-know that then take all precautions and don’t get pregnant,” he explained. “So that’s where I’m at. I’m like, hey, your body is your body and be responsible with it. But after you’re irresponsible then don’t claim, well, I can just go and do this with another body, when you’re the host and you invited that in.”

“Five Republican men voted 4-1 in support of House Bill 116, which would make fetal tissue donation a felony, and House Bill 182, which would require doctors to offer women to hear the fetal heartbeat and undergo an ultrasound before receiving an abortion. The bills, which passed the House, now go to the Senate floor for a vote.”
The best part? They pushed it through the Senate Agriculture, State and Public Lands and Water Resources Committee. Because apparently, women are cattle or sage brush.
 
A third anti-abortion bill, House Bill 250, did manage to land where it was supposed to—in the Labor, Health and Social Services committee.

If Trump Won't Give You Birth Control, Melinda Gates Will - http://bit.ly/2kw3YDI
 
She wants to provide contraceptive options to 120 million women around the globe by 2020.
 
The issue has been on the top of Gates’s agenda since 2012 when she co-chaired the Family Planning 2020 summit, a global event that brought leaders around the world together to talk about giving in-need women easy access to contraception.
"In the decade and a half since Bill and I started our foundation, I’ve heard from women all over the world about how important contraceptives are to their ability to take charge of their futures," she wrote. "When women are able to plan their pregnancies around their goals for themselves and their families, they are also better able to finish their education, earn an income, and fully participate in their communities."
Gates's renewed vigor for this mission is likely linked to the current political climate. After being sworn in, President Trump signed an executive order reinstating a so-called global gag rule, which prohibits U.S. funding to clinics that provide abortion services overseas — Unfortunately, in many cases, that also means cutting off access to birth control.
"The decision about whether and when to get pregnant was a decision that Bill and I made based on what was right for me and what was right for our family—and that’s something I feel lucky about. There are still over 225 million women around the world who don’t have access to the modern contraceptives they need to make these decisions for themselves,"

5-star review by: David the Oxford (United States)

The third review, thanks again for being the best podcast. I rate podcast like most things in life. "Would I drink a beer with this person or with these people", and the answer is an overwhelming "yes". Keep up the great work and for the love of beer, y'all get healthy. I don't like beer but still, like this podcast

by: BB_Spiky (United Kingdom)

A group of like-minded friends sit and put the world to rights over a beer. Love the podcast and the interplay between them. Cheers! :-)

David the "Ox" - Raised a challenge responding to Jenn’s mention that since we live at altitude, we can likely out-drink our sea-level living listeners. He also sent a really nice photo with of he and his wife.

“I am responding to your challenge about being able to drink more when y'all visit the reason con. Something about the altitude or some nonsense like that. Well, challenge accepted. Bring it on.”

This heavy drinker (Thinker?) then proceeded to show us a whole bunch of the beers he was drinking. We have our work cut out for us at ReasonCon.

Another message from Josh saying,

“Loving episode 117, listening to it while getting ready for work. I have to say, I love the constantly changing backgrounds. Who is in charge of that edit? A Beautiful touch.”

  • Rep. Kevin Brady (idiot Republican from Texas) said,

“The Social Security Administration not only overstepped its mission with this regulation, it discriminated against certain Americans with disabilities who receive Social Security benefits. The agency should be focused on serving all of its beneficiaries, not picking and choosing whose Second Amendment rights to deny.”

  • The NRA-backed bill is expected to sail through the senate.

Church of England apologizes after trainee priest gives service in Polari - http://bbc.in/2kNYSPX

  • The service at the chapel of Westcott House in Cambridge was to commemorate LGBT history month by doing the service in the antiquated gay slang language of Polari. The congregation was told the use of the lexicon was an attempt to "queer the liturgy of evening prayer".
  • Polari is thought to have originated in Victorian London but fell out of use as homosexuality began to be decriminalized in England in the 1960s.
  • While they had been given permission to hold a service to commemorate LGBT history month, a Church of England source said the college chaplain had not seen the wording of the service.
  • The translation was based on the Polari bible, a work compiled as a project in 2003 by the self-styled Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. http://bit.ly/2kNZsxc
  • Polari is a form of cant slang used in Britain by some actors, circus and fairground showmen, merchant navy sailors, criminals, prostitutes, and the gay subculture.
  • A cant (or cryptolect) is the jargon or argot of a group, often employed to exclude or mislead people outside the group.
  • An Old Testament reading from the Prophet Joel which says "rend your heart and not your garments, return to the Lord your God" was printed in Polari as "rend your thumping chest and not your frocks - and turn unto the Duchess your Gloria: for she is bona and merciful".
  • Instead of the traditional "Glory be to the father, and to the son, and the Holy Spirit" the prayer offered was: "Fabeness be to the Auntie, and to the Homie Chavvie, and to the Fantabulosa Fairy".
  • Services in the Church of England are legally required to be conducted using the church's approved liturgy. The principal of Westcott House, the Rev Canon Chris Chivers, said the liturgy of the service had not been authorized for use.
  • He said

"I fully recognize that the contents of the service are at variance with the doctrine and teaching of the Church of England and that is hugely regrettable."Inevitably for some members of the house, this caused considerable upset and disquiet and I have spoken at length to those involved in organizing the service."I will be reviewing and tightening the internal mechanisms of the house to ensure this never happens again."

The Furred Reich: The truth about Nazi furries and the alt-right - http://bit.ly/2kO2mSy

  • People who dress up as animals are adopting Nazi-style iconography and calling themselves “alt-furry”.
  • 29-year-old Foxler Nightfire of Fort Collins Co. has faced a torrent of online abuse after posting a picture of himself dressed as a fox on the social network Twitter.
    furries – people who dress up as animals, occasionally for sexual purposes – often face criticism, but this time it is something other than Foxler’s fur-suit (known as a “fursona” – fur persona)
    On his left arm, he is wearing a red armband, emblazoned with a white circle, in which sits a black symbol
  • “It’s obviously not a swastika,” claims Foxler – who also insists his furry name is a portmanteau of “Fox” and his real surname, “Miller”, not “Hitler”, as many online argue. Foxler says he first began wearing the armband – which features a paw print in place of a swastika – after he dropped out of high school and started playing the online role-playing game Second Life, in which the band was available as a character accessory.

“I didn’t take any consideration because of my lack of World War Two knowledge,” he says. “I don’t think I could ever take it off at this point, it’s so ingrained into my character, my fursona.”

  • Foxler has made on YouTube, in which he says "I hate black people" and "I stand by Hitler".
  • Foxler admits he made these comments but tells me he was just "trolling".

"When people started calling me out a few years ago, I started to troll real Nazis and see how would they react to furry that aligns with them," he says over Twitter. "What I got out of it was 'go die you mutt', reason I could never support people like that." I ask him, does he hate black people?

"Their [sic] two parts to that one, in my normal day life not at all," he says."But in my personal sexual life 'I don't like any race', which means I wouldn't sleep with black man [sic]. Now my boyfriend is mix black/Asian. I sleep with him just fine, when I was young I use [sic] to be anti-gay. So why the change? It's because he [sic] not a 'human'; to me when I look at him. He [sic] a blue wolf."

  • In 2005, a LiveJournal page was created for those who were both furries and fetishised Nazi uniforms. Since then the group has spread, with illustrations and roleplays across the internet. There is now even an erotic novel, The Furred Reich, available to buy on Amazon.

“There is not one thing that people refer to when they say ‘#AltFurry’,” says Qu Qu, a man in his late twenties who identifies as a “Pooka” (a shapeshifter) and considers himself the leader of the alt-furry movement.

“I rule with an iron fist and crush dissenters beneath my footpaws,”

“The furry ‘community’ is a fandom that has been overrun by liberal ‘tolerance’ and ‘acceptance’ and as a result it's become sanctuary to hardcore paedophiles and people with serious mental problems,” he claims. “The furry fandom needs to become more vigilant, and having a right wing is a big part of that.”

Scientists Open Their Labs to Colleagues Stranded by Trump’s Immigration Ban - http://theatln.tc/2kO9qPn

  • More than 380 people have signed a list volunteering their facilities to American-based researchers who are stuck outside the U.S.
  • Jürgen Kleine-Vehn, a plant scientist based in Austria, had just read about the story of Samira Asgari, one of many Iranian scientists affected by President Trump’s executive order banning citizens of seven redominantly Muslim countries from entering the U.S. On Saturday, Asgari was headed to Boston to start a postdoctoral fellowship on tuberculosis, but was prevented from boarding a plane in Frankfurt. Hundreds, perhaps thousands, of scientists have been similarly affected, as I reported on Sunday.

“I cannot believe what is happening,” Kleine-Vehn tweeted.

  • After talking to Nordborg, Maria Leptin, the director of the European Molecular Biology Organization, decided to collate the offers of help.

“I felt that words are one thing, but we need deeds,” she says. “I thought: Let’s get people together and do it in a big way.” And EMBO was the perfect organization for it; it’s a prestigious network of European biologists, and one of its goals is specifically to “enable international exchange between scientists.”

  • On Tuesday evening, EMBO launched the Science Solidarity List—a register of “scientists offering temporary bench or desk space, library access and possibly even accommodation for U.S.-based scientists who have stranded abroad,” due to Trump’s executive order. It’s like a Craigslist for the marooned.
  • Most are based in Europe, but others are offering lab space in Canada, Israel, Australia, Japan, Saudi Arabia, Mexico, Singapore, India, Brazil, and China.

“This has obviously struck a nerve,” says Leptin. “[The immigration ban] contravenes anything that science stands for, the international spirit of science. We feel sorry for the scientists who are affected, and all the labs in the U.S. who don’t want this.”

  • This is basically saying that it’s okay for a teacher to “teach the controversy” which is pseudoscience nonsense.
  • Jeff Monroe (R-District 24), a sponsor of SB 55, also sponsored SB 112 in 2014, which would have prevented school boards and administrators from prohibiting teachers from teaching “intelligent design.”
  • The National Center for Science Education’s, Glenn Branch, told the Sioux Fall’s *Argus-Leader *that SB 55’s passage could allow teachers to present creationism, climate change denial, or white supremacy with impunity.

Jenn’s Story
 
I know it feels like every possible asshole on the planet has been headline news in the past few weeks, but good news! There are some more out there that you may not have heard of! This includes the human scrotum, Texas Representative Tony Tinderholt - http://huff.to/2knzS1R
 
He has proposed a bill to CRIMINALIZE abortion. This is in order to make women “more personally responsible” for their sexual activity. Per Mr. Swipe Left:
“Right now, it’s real easy. Right now, they don’t make it important to be personally responsible because they know that they have a backup of ‘oh, I can just go get an abortion.’ Now, we both know that consenting adults don’t always think smartly sometimes. But consenting adults need to also consider the repercussions of the sexual relationship that they’re gonna have, which is a child.”
He calls this bill the *Ugh *Abolition of Abortion Act. It would ban abortion at every single stage of pregnancy. It also amends the state’s penal code to allow women and providers to be charged with murder for the procedure. The bill has no exceptions for rape or incest because Tinderhold said he doesn’t think “there should be any exceptions to murder, no matter what.”
 
Although Texas Republicans recently declared it a priority to abolish abortion in the state, criminalizing the procedure would be blatantly unconstitutional.

A New Pastor Feeds His Members With Vehicle Engine Cleaning Fluid - http://bit.ly/2j9WqG9 
  • The Daveyton pastor, generally called Prophet Theo Bongani Maseko of the Breath of Christ Ministries, reportedly asked his congregants to drink a vehicle engine cleaning fluid to be saved and healed.
  • In an interview with news reporters last week, Maseko confirmed he had made his congregants drink the chemical in order to “demonstrate the power of God”
“When we pray over anything, its poison dies. So it can’t harm people. Nothing happened, no one has been to hospital,” he said as he further noted that those members who took the vehicle engine cleaning fluid had been “saved, healed and delivered”. He backed up his claims by citing Bible verses.  “Jesus spat on the ground and made mud. He took that mud and smeared it on the eyes of a blind man and, instantly, that blindness was healed. Mark 16 v 17-18 says ‘in My name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues. They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover’,” he quoted.

“The irregularities are very clear,” said Oakhurst teacher Alberto Aquino. “I am not saying there is cheating going on (at Heidelberg). I am saying that the scores are not matching up, and every teacher in this school knows it. Every teacher in this district knows it.” 
  • Heidelberg Principal Lowanda Tyler-Jones denies any cheating occurred on the Mississippi Curriculum Test, called the MCT2
  • One former Heidelberg student told The Clarion-Ledger her English teacher, Frances Smith, had read the answers aloud to the class during testing last year.
  • “She would say, ‘C for cat. D for dog. B for ball. A for apple,'” the now sixth-grade Oakhurst student said, describing how Smith provided students the correct multiple-choice response to each question.
  • In December of 2015, that principal, Lowanda Tyler-Jones, was charged in connection with the cheating scandal.
  • [Tyler-Jones] told a state education official that a dramatic increase in test scores was due to prayer.
“She indicated to me during an interview that she anointed the desks, the pencils, the doorways and also the students’ heads with holy water,” said [Drane].

  • She then dramatically drops to the floor with the churchman's footwear lodged between her legs.
  • After a visit to the bathroom, another woman announces that her friend's condition has been miraculously cured - to cheers from the congregation at the Bloemfontein church.
"The woman came to me about pimples on her vagina. This made it impossible for her to sleep with her husband.  "Because the problem was on her private part I decided to use the shoe. I believe in miracles and God uses anything to heal."  
He claimed: 
”I also cured a lot of people of HIV/Aids‚ immediately after praying for them I ask them to go to the nearest clinic and test.

Fake Abortion Doc Removed young Patients Intestines - http://bit.ly/2ja2sGK 
  • Police have arrested an unlicensed doctor who disappeared after removing a teenager girl’s small intestines during a botched abortion.
  • The unnamed female physician posed as a professional but promised budget procedures which were all carried out in her own home in the city of Shenzhen, in South China’s Guangdong Province.
  • After being given "abortion medication", the physician extracted the patient’s fetus with her forceps, but also accidentally pulled out her small intestines, which were then cut, leaving the woman in serious pain afterward.
  • After the procedure, the woman’s husband took her to the hospital where doctors told her she had had her small intestines removed, and that she would need a transplant.
  • Shenzhen City policeman Huang Jianwei, who helped arrest the suspect this week in Dazhou City, in south-western China’s Sichuan Province, said: "The suspect admitted to us that she had no medical qualifications. She had attended nursing school in the past, but didn’t graduate. All her knowledge was learned at a local clinic near her home.
"During the abortion [last year] in the suspect’s home, the patient was given medication and then the fetus and placenta were removed with a forceps. It is then that we believe her small intestines were also removed."  
Jenn Otter Known Better
Wolf-sized otters made for the cutest nightmares in China several million years ago. 
The otter family has been noted in the fossil record for at least the last 18 millions years, but little is known because the record itself is poor. There have only been a few prehistoric species identified, mainly from small bits of bone that limit the information. 
From Gizmodo: 
“The recent discovery of a complete skull and mandible, along with the partial skeletons of three individuals, is offering an unprecedented glimpse into the evolution of these animals. The remains were discovered by American paleontologists who were working at the Shuitangba Site in northeastern Yunnan Province in southwest China, in what used to be an ancient lakebed.” 
American scientist Dr. Denise Su, curator and head of paleobotany and paleoecology at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History was co-author to the research that describes this new species. 
From phys.org
“The new species, Siamogale melilutra lived 6.24 million years ago in in the Yunnan Province in China. It weighed approximately 110 lbs and was roughly the size of a modern wolf. …What is unique about the new discovery is that researchers recovered a complete cranium, mandible, dentition and various skeletal elements—offering a wealth of insight into the taxonomy, evolutionary history and functional morphology of this new species.” 
Interestingly, the jaws actually show features that are both common in otters AND badgers, which belong to the same family Mustelidae. This new species' name of melilutra, combines the Latin names for badger (meles) and otter (lutra). So did we find a common ancestor? 
 

#Don’tShitOnJim

 
Instant Update!
There are now (Thursday, January 26, 2017. 7:00 PM) reports coming in that the bill is dead! This is fantastic news indeed but if you were motivated to write someone because of it don’t worry, there’s plenty to do … read below… 
 
Second Update…
Wyoming is introducing HB244, a super shitty bathroom bill… But that’s the last joke you’ll get on that topic because this is some extra transphobic billshit: Find out how you can help fight this bullshit bill at http://bit.ly/2j9Wwxj 
 
Please write Wyoming’s Reps and Senators and - being super extra nice - tell them how fucked up this is and why it’s a terrible social, economic, and bigoted lump of frog turds! 
 
Jim’s original post
If you want to share or comment (nicely!) find OC at http://bit.ly/2jWYcax
 
You may have heard about a bill introduced in the Wyoming Legislature, HB 135. They’re calling it the Government Nondiscrimination Act, and they’re saying that it’s about protecting the free exercise of religion. Even George Takei is talking about us here in the Equality State! 
Make no mistake; I unequivocally support the First Amendment and the free exercise of religion. But that’s not what HB 135 is really about. The only thing it protects is the right to discriminate against GLBTQ people. This bill MUST be stopped. It would allow any individual, business, group/organization, or government entity to turn me away. Or my husband. Or our daughter. It would allow a doctor or a teacher to refuse us service, just because I don’t comply with THEIR religious beliefs.
 
It would have allowed the county clerks to deny us a marriage license, just like in Kentucky. It would have allowed the University to deny me insurance for my husband and daughter. It would have allowed the judge to refuse to hear our adoption petition. And HB 135 explicitly says there would be nothing we could do about it. That government officials don’t have to do their jobs if someone disagrees with their religion. That DMV clerks and public defenders can put their personal beliefs before the law.
 
I cannot underscore the many ways in which this will hurt me and my family. It will put my daughter, Nessa, at risk because her dads will not have the same legal rights as everyone else. In a very real and instantaneous manner, it would put every single GLBTQ person in Wyoming at risk for losing their jobs and housing, and make it legal to deny access to every service available. Food stamps, WIC, and Medicaid too.
 
But it also sets an incredibly dangerous precedent. Allowing businesses to decide what kinds of people they can discriminate against is a slippery slope we don’t want to go down. Who will be next? Will it become okay to refuse to serve people of color or people of a different faith? Our founding documents state that the government shall establish no religion, but HB 135 would do just that. If this is really about protecting the free exercise of religion, why does it focus on a single belief of SOME religions? Religious freedom is firmly enshrined in our existing laws, and that’s not going away anytime soon. If someone tries to take it away, I will be there fighting that discriminatory legislation too. So why is HB 135 needed now?
 
So what can you do? Wyoming residents need to speak up and get involved. Use your voice! Contact your state legislators; tell them that you’re opposed, and why. People don’t call their elected officials as often as you think, so each call represents dozens or even hundreds of voters. Tell them to vote no! Tell them that discrimination is simply bad for business. Tell them that North Carolina already did this, and they’ve lost over $600,000 in revenue because people recognized it as discrimination. Tourism is one of our primary industries in Wyoming, and we shouldn’t risk lost revenue at a time when our state budget is already in turmoil. If we want to compete, Wyoming must demonstrate a commitment to creating an open, healthy, and diverse workforce.
 
Tell them that HB 135 takes away local control from cities and counties to govern themselves, as it would invalidate actual non-discrimination ordinances and prevent other cities from enacting them. Tell them that they’re sending a message that their GLBTQ neighbors and constituents are “less than,” and might lead to an increase in the suicide rate. Tell them that it would violate Article I, Section 3 of the Wyoming Constitution, which guarantees “Equal political rights.” Tell them that ignoring marriages recognized by other states would violate the Full Faith and Credit Clause of the 14th Amendment.
 
Please don’t just leave this to GLTBT folks; it’s pretty obvious that our leaders don’t think very highly of us, our rights, or our opinions. Write letters to the editor. If you’re straight and cisgender, your voice can speak even louder than mine, because you don’t have anything to gain or lose. If you can say “this law wouldn’t apply to me, but I still think it’s hateful and wrong,” tell people. Tell your friends and neighbors about HB 135, and encourage them to speak up too. It’s going to take people from both sides of the political aisle, and people of all walks of life to do what’s right. I’ve seen Wyoming Republicans join Democrats to prevent hate-filled, anti-GLBTQ bills in the past, and I know we can do it again now.
 
Talk about your values. If you’re a person of faith and think this is wrong, say so! Tell them everyone deserves to be treated fairly and equally under the laws of our state and in our community. Tell them we don’t turn our backs on family in Wyoming, and that no member of anyone’s family should have to face shame because of who they are or who they love. That our government should be looking out for ALL Wyoming residents, not just people who oppose same-sex marriage. Tell them that allowing GLBTQ people to live and work in Wyoming without fear of discrimination will not change how each religion defines what’s right or wrong. Remind them that opposing HB 135 will not change any religious beliefs or practices.
 
A friend of mine in California asked how they could help from afar. It’s true that calls or letters from outside the state might not mean as much to legislators, but that doesn’t mean they can’t have an impact. Maybe if they heard how HB 135 is being viewed by others around the country, it might serve as a wakeup call. Maybe it will help if they learn how many trips to Yellowstone or Cheyenne Frontier Days might be canceled in response. Do you have friends or relatives here in Wyoming? Tell them to get involved!
 
Also, don’t assume this can’t happen in your state. This is not the first time such a bill has been proposed, and more like it are going to be introduced in other states. It’s just as important for you to reach out to your friends, neighbors, and leaders to prevent it from spreading to your communities. We need to raise awareness. To educate people about the reality of discrimination. To change hearts and minds, in some cases. Your voice has power, and it matters.
 
Share your personal stories; it’s easier to ignore the discriminatory impact on “those people” than on someone you know and care about. Be vocal, but be polite. Name calling and yelling are easy to ignore, but it’s harder to discount calm, rational arguments that are respectful and well-reasoned. It’s important that we model civil dialogue and treat everyone with respect. I refuse to sink to their level, and I hope you will too. At the end of the day, this is about equality and respect. That’s why I hope that you respect me and my family enough to take action. To stand up for me the way I’ve been standing up for others for so many years now. To help ensure I have access to equality, and that my daughter will be protected. Even if we’re not part of “the right church.” It’s only fair…

Supermarket Introduces “Relaxed Lane” for Special Needs Customers - http://bit.ly/2j9RnoS 
  • One of the Tesco supermarket branches in Scotland has just launched a “relaxed lane” for vulnerable customers who would prefer to take their time at the till.
  • The store, located in Forres, Moray, hopes that the lane will make grocery shopping easier for guests with dementia, autism, Alzheimer’s, learning disabilities, or just a mother with several kids under her arm.
  • The project, developed with the assistance of Alzheimer Scotland, will hopefully encourage shoppers to comfortably move at their own pace without feeling rushed.
  • Though it is currently only a trial program, the lane – open on Tuesdays and Wednesdays – has already received an outpouring of approval and support.
“It was highlighted to me that people living with dementia can feel under pressure when they reach the checkout, and it struck me that this could be true for others as well,” the store’s Kerry Speed told BBC. “Early feedback from customers has been very positive. Although it’s a simple gesture, we hope this will make a difference.”

Shea's Story
 
Klingenschmitt is at it again - http://bit.ly/2juhZOj
 
Gays are immoral and should never be teachers!
 
On the latest episode of “Pray In Jesus Name” or PIJN for short our good friend Klingyshit said that gay people should never be allowed to serve as school teachers because they “should be disqualified immediately because of their immorality.”
 
was commenting on a report about a Minnesota elementary school teacher and his husband who allegedly abused multiple boys over the course of several years and then killed themselves once an investigation was launched. Klingenschmitt said that while these men were obviously possessed by “a demonic spirit of child abuse,” the school system and society as a whole also share the blame for allowing gay people to teach in public schools in the first place. - http://bit.ly/2julJj8
 
Many of these allegations were confirmed after their deaths when police found a hidden camera in a bathroom clock
 
Though I'm not making light of these two men's crimes, this teacher was in a position of power and abused his relationship as a mentor, a role model, and a care taker. It is disgusting what these two men did.
 
But as Klingyshit classifies all gay and lesbian teachers as sex offenders and morally corrupt is to do the same to all teachers. A quick search of educator abuse with coming up with results of offenders from every creed, sex, and nationality.
 
Klingyshit then says “As a culture now, the demonic spirit of homosexuality has taken over and redefined marriage, particularly in Minnesota, to tell these boys that it is okay,” he said. “And the demonic spirit of deception has taken over the school board or whoever decided, maybe the principal, decided to hire these child abusers to teach elementary school. Well, if anything, they should have been disqualified immediately because of their immorality, because the immorality inside of these two men are indicators that they are unfit to be a good example to little children.”
 
“This is evil upon evil and it’s not just these two men who are at fault,”
 
Klingenschmitt added. “It is our laws as a society that need to be changed to prevent and protect children from this kind of abuse in the future.”
 
We should not give these two men a pass, as what they did was deplorable but calling all teachers horrible deviants from hell is overboard.
 
Jenn's Story
 
Is there a brainy reason I want to eat a whole pizza in my underwear after a night at the bar? MAYBE!!!
 
Not that any of us could speak to this from experience, but apparently binge drinking can sometimes lead to binge eating. And, interestingly, scientists have conducted some experiments that may help to explain exactly WHY we---er, PEOPLE end up heading for a late night taco run after a night of bar crawling.
 
From an article in Medical Daily
“For the study, researchers looked at the brains of mice, some who were given alcohol and some who were not, to understand if there was a neurological explanation for increased appetite after drinking alcohol.They found that an area of the brain called the Agrp neurons, which is located in the hypothalamus, was activated in mice given alcohol, but not the controls. When the team purposely deactivated these neurons in mice given alcohol, they did not overeat. This suggested that alcohol-induced food binges may be caused by a constant activation of this part of the brain.”
It's often baffled medical researchers that, after spending time ingesting high-calorie alcoholic drinks, the brain doesn't register as full. In fact, often the opposite occurs.
“Although the experiment cannot be reproduced on humans for ethical reasons, the mice behaved the same way as humans who drank too much the night before. For example, mice that were injected with alcohol became more hungry and ate far more than mice that were not given alcohol. This effect was especially strong the next day, which may explain why hungover individuals often take solace in overeating. The neurons in the mice remained active throughout the second day, urging them to continue to eat even when they were physically full.”

Update: Father Who Let His Child Die of Meningitis is Once Again Promoting Harmful Alternative Medicine - http://bit.ly/2jui7gM
Remember David Stephan and his wife Collet Stephan?
 
They’re the Canadians who received four months in jail and three months of house arrest, respectively, as punishment for allowing their baby to die from meningitis by treating him with maple syrup and hot peppers instead of the vaccine that could have actually helped.
David Stephan is already back on the road telling people all about the health benefits of alternative medicine, doing whatever he can to make sure other kids suffer just like his own.
 
The Alberta father found guilty with this wife of “failing to provide the necessaries of life” to their 18-month-old son Ezekiel appeared Tuesday at an alternative health store in Prince George, B.C., to promote a nutritional supplement claimed to treat mental illness.
“Come listen to David Stephan talk about how his family members suffered from mental illness and were made well,” read a flyer promoting the appearance at Ave Maria Specialties. The store calls itself the largest health food store in northern British Columbia and promises “healthy products for mind, body, and soul.”

Pennridge Superintendent Jacqueline A. Rattigan has since apologized, saying in a statement quoted by Philly.com that the question was "downloaded from a website that allows teachers around the world to share educational resources. It is not part of our approve curriculum."
Rattigan added that "steps to avoid such occurrences in the future" were being taken.
"y = x+2, 3x+6y = 12, Angelou was sexually abused by her mother's ___ at age 8, which shaped her career choices and motivation for writing."
The multiple choice answers:

  • The USA will be seen as a pariah under the presidency of Donald Trump
  • Brexit will go ahead despite efforts of those wishing to derail it
  • Other EU countries will follow UK’s example and apply to withdraw from the EU
  • Troubling times for the Royal Family
  • Many more sporting scandal stories will emerge with very high profile figures falling from grace
  • The political atmosphere of certain EU countries will change with the deposing of several prominent leaders
  • Political turmoil within UK opposition parties will rumble on
  • A major review of the UK’s education system will be undertaken

“I’m sure that Jemima’s annual predictions will also attract wide media interest as they have in the past and thank her for continuing to keep Vale of Evesham asparagus on the world-wide map.”

She has been dubbed ‘Ambassador for Vale Gras the Vale of Evesham even though she now lives in Bath!

“It is a great honor to be associated with it and it is great fun. I do it because I enjoy doing it,” she said.

P.S.

It seems to me like this might all be just a bit of fun put on to promote the festival. And to their credit, it's worked wonderfully as we've just linked to it. Everyone seemed to be having a good time and I don't see how this could possibly be taken seriously... And frankly, who doesn't love a grilled asparagus?... right...

Jenn's Story

Science and Equality! Let's get the fuck out of our country---in fact, let's leave the planet altogether. Congratulations to Jeanette Epps, who has become the first African American onboard the International Space Station. - http://huff.to/2iqEQLZ

The ISS has been in orbit since 1998 and is now the largest artificial body in orbit and can sometimes be seen by the naked eye from Earth. It was intended to be a laboratory, observatory, and factory in low Earth orbit. It was also planned to provide transportation, maintenance, and act as a staging base for possible future missions to the Moon, Mars, and asteroids.

NASA has sent 14 black astronauts into space in previous missions, but Epps will be the 1st African American and only 13th woman aboard the ISS.

I'm hoping lots of the young girls who are considering looking into education/careers in the STEM fields look to Epps as a mentor. She has a Ph.D. in aerospace engineering and has served as an astronaut since 2009. She has also spent seven years as a technical intelligence officer for the Central Intelligence Agency. She is also a former NASA Graduate Student Researchers Project fellow, will be one of among 200 astronauts who have visited the ISS.

Shea Has Flashbacks

Episode Links Will Being Playing At The Story!

The Poop Cup Story - http://bit.ly/2iqspjk

If you weren't a listener last year, you pretty much need to listen to this. The audio is less awesome than it is now, but not by much. It's super listenable and well worth your time. Also keep in mind that we were like 15 beer tastings in at this point...

Episode 78 - The Fallen Angel - http://bit.ly/2iquXxS

  • Last year on March 12th, 2016 in Jakarta an angel fell to Earth only to be found by a 21-year-old fisherman who brought her home to care for her.
  • Village buzz caught the attention of the local police who then went to investigate the so called angel. Only then did everyone discover it was an inflatable doll.
  • Police Chief said the parents of the fisherman changed the doll’s clothes every day and was given a blouse and a hijab – a way to care for it as it slowly deflated.

Episode 68 - Saudi Arabian Hogwarts Courses - http://bit.ly/2imsP6N

  • Recruits in an anti-witchcraft unit within Saudi Arabia’s powerful religious police have begun a new training course on theoretical and practical aspects of countering sorcery and the black arts, the practice of which is punishable by death.
  • They completed a five-day course on combating magic at the headquarters of the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice
  • How to identify magicians and destroy black artworks.
  • The unit had formed nine bureaus for fighting witchcraft by 2011, and in 2012 alone charged 215 magicians, the report said.
  • The country carried out at least 157 executions in 2015, with beheadings reaching their highest level in the kingdom there in two decades

Update

  • They must have been trained really well because of this year beheadings alone, are up more than double from 2015!
  • Way to go, Saudi Arabia, Witchcraft must be down now, good job!

Episode 69 - Because Numerology Is Funny... http://bit.ly/2imudX5

This is just an episode link cause we don't actually talk about this episode for that matter, I don't even remember what it's about but we're children so the name is funny.

Episode 103 - The Dyatlov Pass - http://bit.ly/2iqBecN

  • Loved everything about this story so you need to go back and listen if you missed it. I have a new theory, and by theory I mean truth...
  • Our story took place in 1959 in a remote Russian mountain pass where 9 hikers all bolted from their tent, shoe-less and scared, to their inevitable deaths in the freezing weather.
  • I postulate that this coincided with the solar flare of July 16th of the same year
  • This flare started a series of events allowing a demon to be summoned on Dyatlov Pass in the middle of these poor hikers tent...
  • As we all know demons are scary and when faced with the orange glow of hell fires the last thing you think about is shoes.
  • There is proof of this demon! As we know there has been many prophesies of the anti-Christ and the beast that is America.
  • Had these chicken shitted hikers stayed and taken up their mantle of demon hunters then maybe the hell colored demon would never have run for president!

From noops42:

Good beer is imaginary much like god 

While I disagree with their stance that there is anything good about beer they put on a good podcast. I had the good fortune to meet them at a Shelly Segal concert a while ago and they are as funny and generous in person as they are on the show. I work with a lot of beer drinking people and their insight allows me to at least follow those conversations at work. I apologize if this is jumping around I had the good sense to consume a healthy dose of rum this evening before doing my informal logic homework. Keep up the good work and I look forward to each episode. 

Headlines

Witch doctors neededhttp://nyp.st/2iVkUPC

  • International Association of Exorcists conference, a Vatican-sanctioned retreat for about 400 catholic leaders, met in Rome in October
  • They are concerned that there is a big upswing in demon possessions but there are too few trained priests to manage the problem
  • Rev. Vincent Lampert, the head priest at St. Malachy’s in Indianapolis, Indiana said the meeting was to stategize on how to recruit and train more exorcists, who use holy water and prayer to combat evil
  • The situation is dire, he said, because rampant pornography, illegal narcotic use and the occult have made it easier for Satan to cast his net.
  • Valter Cascioli, the psychologist and scientific consultant for the exorcists’ association, agreed demons across the world have multiplied and there aren’t enough priests to fight them.
  • “The lack of exorcists is a real emergency,” he told the Italian newspaper La Stampa.
  • Marcos Quinones, a New York state chaplain who claims he works as an occult investigator, says the new generation of drug dealers spray their illicit products with incantations and evil spells before putting it on the street.
  • “Many drug traffickers practice forms of the occult. They incorporate voodoo or black magic that gives them the power to succeed. It makes the product more powerful and creates a stronger addict. In essence, they’re doubling the curse the drugs cause anyway,” he said.

Dickhead Texas judge blocks transgender policyhttp://bit.ly/2iVDlDB
http://bit.ly/2iVDlDB

  • Federal judge, Reed O'Connor, blocked national regulations aimed at protecting transgender people from discrimination in health care
  • O'Connor said the regulations "likely" violate "the Religious Freedom Restoration Act" and were flawed because laws prohibiting discrimination based on sex were incorrectly stretched by the federal government to include discrimination based on gender identity.
  • ruling stated that "plaintiffs will be forced to either violate their religious beliefs or maintain their current policies which seem to be in direct conflict with the federal regulations and risk the severe consequences of enforcement."
  • Second ruling by O'Connor that thwarts President Barack Obama's efforts to increase protections for transgender individuals. He issued a similar injunction in October blocking a federal move that required public schools to let transgender students use restrooms consistent with their gender identity.

Jenn’s Southern Tours

South Carolina Republican State Representative, Chris Corley, was arrested Dec. 29th in the city of Aiken. Before we get into the arrest, I want to give just a quick bit of backstory on this man. He had actually made headlines in December of 2015. Quick trip down racist memory lane: 

I was made aware of Mr. Corley when he sent out Christmas cards last year to his fellow Republican representatives of the house that can only be described as OVERTLY racist. The front of the card shows the Confederate flag flying over the SC state capital. On the back he wrote:

“May your Christmas be filled with memories of a happier time when South Carolina’s leaders possessed morals, convictions and the principles to stand for what is right.

How fortunate each and every one of us are that our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ chose to be born into this miserable world. His sacrifice was difficult, but the best decisions are not always the easiest ones.

May you have a blessed and happy Christmas, and may you take this joyous time as an opportunity to ask forgiveness of all yours sins such as betrayal.”

http://bit.ly/2iVv2rt

This mainly stems from Gov. Nikki Haley's call for a vote to remove it the flag from SC government buildings after the Charleston church shootings. It was decided to remove the flag, so Rep. Corley sat in the House seat, waving a small white flag stating that it should be the new state flag get it? Surrender??.

Ok, so that was a brief rundown on Rep. Corley. He's a smug bigot that likes to shame people for ttheir lack of conviction and morals. Got it?

But Who Patreonizes AiG

Hammie Charles Wolford knows what killed the dinosaurs... it was Jesus! 

Creationist: The Story of Beowulf is an “Eyewitness Account” of Humans Interacting with Dinosaurs -  http://bit.ly/2iVDoiL

  • Charles Wolford, a reporter for Louisville Magazine, visited Ark Encounter on its opening day this past July, and his article about the experience is now available online http://bit.ly/2iVuv95

  • he spoke with AiG’s director of research Andrew Snelling that is just unbelievable, even for Creationists.

AiG’s Dr. Georgia Purdom introduced me to geologist Andrew Snelling, who followed Ken Ham to the U.S. from Australia and for the last nine years has been the director of research for Answers in Genesis. I said,

“There were dinosaurs on the Ark, right?” Snelling nodded. “Right.”

“Then why aren’t there dinosaurs today?”

“Dinosaurs went extinct after they left the Ark. After the Flood, we had the Ice Age. We had a radically different world. Some creatures weren’t able to adapt. But most cultures in the world have some legend about dragons, and these dragons are actually a good description of dinosaurs. The Chinese, for example — their dragons are depicted on scrolls pulling the chariots of emperors. And there was a story called Beowulf in which the king slays a dragon, and this happened in Norway.”

“So you take Beowulf to be evidence of dinosaurs existing?”

“Yes,” Snelling said. “It was an eyewitness account.”

  • museum-style posters on the walls:
  • Fish would have been nave during the ood, one said, because a lot of marine species thrive in both fresh- water and saltwater;
  • polar bears would have survived, too, because they don’t need to live in a subzero climate “many warm-weather zoos house polar bears”;
  • large animals could t in the Ark given that it was bigger than people think, and most dinosaurs “were smaller than bison, even as adults”;
  • and 99 percent of all species have not gone extinct, as evolutionary biologists claim: “ the amount of documented extinct species only numbers in the thousands — not in the millions or billions.”
  • One of the posters, “Giants,” showed an ogreish gure with jagged teeth charging forward with a club raised over his bald, scarred head. In front of me, a woman with a pageboy haircut held the hand of a little boy. Pointing, she said, “ ere were once giants in the Earth. Did you know that, buddy?”

“There were?” the boy said.

“A long time ago. Yep. It’s in the Bible.”

  • Exhibit that showed what Noah’s family’s living quarters might have been like. A poster “Meet Your Ancestors” divided Noah’s tribe into couples:
  • Noah and Emzara,
  • Ham and Kezia,
  • Shem and Ar’yel,
  • Japheth and Rayneh.
  • These wom- en go unnamed in the Bible, as Marsh told me: “Noah’s wife, Emzara, is a name often mentioned in extra-biblical writ- ings. Kezia, Rayneh, Ar’yel are made-up names by us. We gave the wives different racial characteristics that foreshadow the development of the different races we see today.” Ar’yel seemed maybe Italian or Jewish, Kezia reminded me of a cinnamon-skinned African-American woman, and Rayneh looked cherubically Aryan.
  • A huge problem for naturalistic thinking is its foundation in materialism — the belief that only matter exists,”

No one can swing by a grocery store and buy two ounces of logic, a bag of natural law, and a carton of morality. In a universe without laws of logic or laws of nature, how could anyone prove that naturalistic evolution has occurred?”

A man with silver hair pointed to a display about gravity while talking to a boy who looked like he was 10 years old.

“Gravity has never been proven, because gravity is a large object attracted to a smaller object, and it’s never been seen. If gravity existed, a BB and a bowling ball should bump into each other. So you see how guys like Newton get caught in their own lies.”

  • “Noah’s Chili with Cheese Soup du Jour,” “Double Bacon and Cheeseburger — ‘The Two by Two,’” and “Pepsi, Mtn. Dew, Mist Twist $2.50 – no refills.”

Uber Sex

What started out as a normal Uber driving shift for Keith Avila turned into an incredible rescue of a 16-year-old girl from a child sex trafficking ring.

  • Keith was working on Monday night in Sacramento, California when he picked up two women and a young girl.
  • While driving them to a Holiday Inn, he started hearing the adults openly instruct the teen on how to interact with “John” at the hotel. Their instructions reportedly included telling her to “pat him down for weapons while hugging him” and “get the donation from him” before anything happened.
  • He called the cops
  • Police officers arrived at the scene in minutes, arresting the two pimps – Destiny Pettway and Maria Westley – and the man that they were meeting. The teen was apparently a runaway who was then rescued and taken into temporary housing while law enforcement located her family.
  • “The worst thing I thought would happen when driving Uber is that I would be getting drunk passengers and I would have to handle them,” Avila told NBC Latino. “All my life, I thought about people throwing up in the car as the worst scenario.”

Jenn's Unplanned Parenthood

Texas officially defunds Planned Parenthood - http://n.pr/2in9Ddh - http://bit.ly/2imZ1eH

Tex Gov Greg Abbott promised in 2015 to totally defund and as of Dec. 21st Planned Parenthood has until mid-January to sue to block.  It has taken a year of nothing for this step to be taken.

The blocking is that of Medicaid funding, which for most PP's amounts to over 75% of their funding. The letter this month to PP from Texas Health and Human Services Inspector General Stuart Bowen which announced the defunding also cited the PROVEN FAKE ABORTION VIDEOS that have been debunked for months now.

Additionally, almost no PP's in Texas actually perform abortions. 

From Mic.com http://mic.com/ “The removal of Planned Parenthood from Medicaid threatens to leave thousands of low-income people without access to routine health care checkups, cancer screenings, birth control and various other forms of preventive care. Shortly after the state's initial notice of intent in 2015, a study conducted by the Texas Policy Evaluation Project found at least 100,000 and as many as 240,000 women in Texas had attempted to self-induce abortions. HB2, a 2013 Texas House Bill that gained widespread criticism and was famously filibustered by Wendy Davis has helped dramatically cut the number http://nyti.ms/2imUHvE of abortion clinics in Texas, despite being ruled unconstitutional http://cnn.it/2in0gdS by the Supreme Court earlier this year.

Aaron’s Story

Start the new year off right with boys. So many boys. All the boys!

'Eat mutton': Indian newspaper's 'scientific' tips for conceiving boys -  http://bit.ly/2in5SER

  • Boy-Bearing Tip #1 Limit your procreational activities to Days 1,3,5 and 7 of the week. The “strength” of the male sperm is “scientifically” stronger and pushier on these days. Probably inspired by Kejriwal’s car number plate rule, this tip dictates misogynist movie-watching nights on even days, and bang-bang resulting in boy-bearing on the odd days.
  • Boy-Bearing Tip #2 Never skip breakfast, if you are a woman interested in boy-bearing. Apart from being the most important meal of the day honestly, nobody cares about that when all you are destined to be is a boy-bearer, it will ensure that your uterus would house only baby boys. Must be something in the morning cereal.
  • Boy-Bearing Tip #3 Most importantly, wives of the patriarchal realm desiring boys should eat a lot. Can’t figure out the common sense behind this? Because boys eat a lot, and girls don’t, silly. Stuff yourself with food to the tonsils, and your body will ensure boy-bearing.
  • Boy-Bearing Tip #4 Couples desiring boy-bearing should religiously include mutton, dry grapes, and salty food in their diet. Pity on those vegetarians with high blood pressure.
  • Boy-Bearing Tip #5 This is the toughest one yet. Wannabe boy-bearer women should sleep with their faces turned to the left side, also facing west simultaneously. We recommend carrying a compass to bed to make this easier.
  • Boy-Bearing Tip #6 We shouldn’t leave the men out of these boy-bearing preparations. Mangalam dictates that men should avoid food items including acidity content, as it reduces the power and the brawn of the semen. Stronger sperm means XY-bearing embryos, as the presence of the strength automatically cancels out on the possibility of girl embryos.
  • Ladies Finger, which “recommended” the advice to its readers, “especially if, God forbid, the blood moon sacrifices conducted by your extended family for a male heir haven’t worked out yet”.
  • India’s cultures and tens of thousands of girls are thought to be aborted each year. The result is a heavily distorted gender ratio, with India’s most recent census finding there were 940 girls born each year for every 1,000 boys. The disparity is worst in Haryana, a state in the country’s north, where just 830 girls are born for every 1,000 boys.

Federal center pays good money for suspect medicine -  http://trib.in/2imZ4qT

  • With $666,000 in federal research money, scientists examined whether distant prayer could heal AIDS. It could not.
  • The National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine also helped pay scientists to study whether squirting brewed coffee into someone's intestines can help treat pancreatic cancer a $406,000 grant and whether massage makes people with advanced cancer feel better $1.25 million. The coffee enemas did not help. The massage did.
  • Thanks to a $374,000 taxpayer-funded grant, we now know that inhaling lemon and lavender scents don't do a lot for our ability to heal a wound.
  • NCCAM also has invested in studies of various forms of energy healing, including one based on the ideas of a self-described "healer, clairvoyant and medicine woman" who says her children inspired her to learn to read auras. The cost for that was $104,000.
  • A small, little-known branch of the National Institutes of Health, NCCAM was launched a dozen years ago to study alternative treatments used by the public but not accepted by mainstream medicine. Since its birth, the center has spent $1.4 billion, most of it on research.
  • The cancer treatment involving coffee enemas was based on an idea from the early 1900s, and patients who chose to undergo the risky regimen lived an average of just four months.
  • "Some of these treatments were just distinctly made up out of people's imaginations," said Dr. Wallace Sampson, clinical professor emeritus of medicine at Stanford University http://trib.in/2in2VUR . "We don't take public money and invest it in projects that are just made up out of people's imaginations."
  • "Lots of good science and good scientists are going unfunded," said Dr. David Gorski, a breast cancer http://trib.in/2imY1qU researcher at Wayne State University, who has been a vocal critic of NCCAM. "How can we justify wasting money on something like this when there are so many other things that are much more plausible and much more likely to result in real benefit?"
  • DeKosky headed a $36.5 million study, including $25 million from NCCAM, on ginkgo biloba, a popular supplement taken as a defense against dementia http://trib.in/2imUKaO and Alzheimer's disease. DeKosky's study concluded that it did not lower the overall incidence rate of either condition in elderly people who were normal or already had mild cognitive impairment.
  • For example, the center has spent millions of dollars on studies of acupuncture, in which tiny needles are inserted shallowly into the body. NCCAM's website states that the "vital energy" called qi "can be unblocked, according to traditional Chinese medicine, by using acupuncture at certain points on the body."
  • Many studies, including those funded by NCCAM, find that true acupuncture performs no better than when a person is fooled into thinking he is getting acupuncture through the use of placebos like retractable needles or even toothpicks twirled on the skin.
  • Meanwhile, one of the protocol's components — coffee enemas — has been linked to infections and electrolyte imbalances that can be fatal. oh and — is based on an unproven idea from the early 1900s.

So... Marsh, when you’re done shining all over the NHS, could you drop the mic on the NCCAM?

Headlines

Oklahoma passes new, well-considered law, recommending new restroom signage -  http://bit.ly/2i7Yvyb

  • The bill called, “Humanity of the Unborn Child Act” originally appeared to require businesses to post a sign in their restrooms saying
  • There are many public and private agencies willing and able to help you carry your child to term and assist you and your child after your child is born, whether you choose to keep your child or to place him or her for adoption. The State of Oklahoma strongly urges you to contact them if you are pregnant.
  • It's now been clarified by the bill's sponsor, A.J. Griffin, that the signs are voluntary, not mandatory as many originally had thought. that makes it A-Okay, doesn't it?
  • Businesses were up in arms that the unfunded requirement would end up costing state businesses up to $2.3 million to implement
  • Now it seems that the state will only “make the signs available”, but it's still unknown if that will be printed or electronic
  • Other provisions in the law include development of educational materials for schools “to teach the humanity of the unborn child.” Such instruction would be at the schools’ discretion, but the law says that they are not to include any sex education “other than those included in science education standards.”

South Carolina, not to be outdone my Oklahoma, is attempting to grab the “stupidest state” prize -  http://bit.ly/2i80cLQ

  • Showing an amazing ignorance of how things work, State Representative Bill Chumley yep, his name is Chumley, has pre-filed a bill to block computers from accessing obscene content
  • Sellers would be required to install digital blocking capabilities on hardware
  • It would also prohibit access to online hubs that facilitate prostitution or websites that facilitate trafficking
  • But, there is a silver lining for the state coffers, in that manufacturers could opt out for $20/unit
  • Buyers too could verify age and pay $20 to remove the filter
  • Money collected to go to the state attorney general

A bit of good news to go with the typical news of the stupid. Obama signs Frank Wolf International Religious Freedom Act. -  http://bit.ly/2i7YhqE

  • The new law protects atheists, humanists, and other freethinkers around the world from religious persecution.
  • Law passed with overwhelming bi-partisan support with Obama's signature on Dec. 16
  • In part, the law states, “The freedom of thought, conscience, and religion is understood to protect theistic and non-theistic beliefs as well as the right not to profess or practice any religion.”
  • It also condemns “specific targeting of non-theists, humanists, and atheists because of their beliefs,” and enables the State Department to target “non-state actors” against religious freedom, like the Islamic State group, Boko Haram and other extra-government groups.
  • Caroline Mala Corbin http://bit.ly/2i7Zn5C, professor of law at the University of Miami said, “the new language in the IRFA could influence how U.S. courts regard atheists at home. All Americans are protected by the First Amendment, she said, but “there has always been controversy about the degree to which they atheists should be protected. This law makes clear they are to be protected to the same extent” as religious believers.
  • Crazy law get's high marks from both the religious and non-religious: Russell Moore, president of the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, called the legislation “a vital step toward protecting conscience freedom for millions of the world’s most vulnerable, most oppressed people http://bit.ly/2i81Kpc,” while Roy Speckhardt, executive director of the American Humanist Association, called it “a significant step toward full acceptance and inclusion for non-religious individuals http://bit.ly/2i7X4Qb.”

Jingle Hard

to the tune of Jingle Bells 

Climbing through the vents, 

No shoes are on his feet, 

John McClain is here for them,

There's Germans here to beat.  

 

Chorus

 

Oh, bullets fly, bad guys die, SWAT is on it's way 

John McClain is here for pain and Gruber he will slay! 

Hans is at the vault, 

But John now has a gun, 

the terrorists try and keep their cool 

but get gunned down one by one. 

 

Chorus

 

Oh, bullets fly, bad guys die, SWAT is on it's way 

John McClain is here for pain and Gruber he will slay! 

Now were on the roof, 

Nakatomi is quite tall, 

John shoots Hans right in the chest  

and then he watched him fall.

 

Chorus

 

Oh, bullets fly, bad guys die, SWAT is on it's way, 

Hans Gruber is a pancake now and John says Yipee-Ki-Yay!

 

Jenn's Story

Outlawed Hindu tradition for menstruating women and girls still practiced, kills 14-year-old girl this month.  http://bit.ly/2i7YxpN - http://bit.ly/2i7UNod

Chhaupadi – banishment to a cattle shed or makeshift hut – because of so-called “impurity” during menstruation or just after childbirth for a 10-11 day confinement WITH THE NEWBORN INFANT. Chhaupadi dictates what a woman can eat, where she can sleep, with whom she can interact, where she can go, and whom she can touch while she is menstruating. This lasts between ten and eleven days when an adolescent girl has her first period; thereafter, the duration is between four and seven days each month.

The beliefs behind Chhaupadi – which are linked to Hindu religion – decree that a woman who disobeys these diktats can bring destruction and death to her family. If she touches a crop, it wilts; if she fetches water, the well dries up; if she picks fruit, it doesn’t ripent 

“If we stay in the house instead of the shed, we get ill because our deities don’t approve of it,” explains Gita Rokaya,a woman from the mountainous village of Sanigaun, in the western district of Jumla. 

“We don’t want to live like this but our gods won’t tolerate it any other way.”

Chhaupadi – which translates to “untouchable being” – has been practiced for centuries in Nepal, as well as in parts of India and Bangladesh, where a yearly festival in August, Rishi Panchami http://bit.ly/2i7U0DH, involves women purifying themselves with water and prayer for the “sins” they commit while menstruating.

A 14-year-old named Roshani Tiruwa died sometimes on during the night of Dec. 16th.  Aljazeera reports that Tiruwa’s body was found late the next day after she hadn’t been seen all morning. Her father called to her from outside the hut to no avail. Then, he told the Nepalese newspaper, My Republica, “We saw her dead body.”

Although Chhaupadi was outlawed by Nepal’s supreme court in 2005, the practice is still widely observed in the western parts of the country, where low development rates, gender inequality, community tradition and high illiteracy all contribute to its continuation, say activists. A 2011 report from the UN estimates that 95% of women and girls in these regions are forced to observe this practice.

Aaron’s Story

Merry Christmas. Unless you’re a goat — then, fuck you right in the goat face -  http://n.pr/2i7Y4nc  -  http://bit.ly/2i7VPAE

  • Black Goat Is Sacrificed On Tarmac Of Pakistani Airport
  • Employees of Pakistan's national airline took a black goat to the tarmac, near an ATR-42 aircraft that was ready to depart on a domestic flight from the Islamabad airport, and sacrificed the animal.
  • In defense of the sacrifice, a Twitter user who goes by MisBis wrote: "There's nothing wrong in giving Sadqua a charitable offering ... Sadqa bari balao se bachata hai it hedges against many troubles ... stop making it a joke."
  • Another journalist, Fasi Zaka, tweeted: "PIA sacrifices a black goat before resuming ATR services, they take their historical nickname 'Please Inform Allah' PIA very seriously."
  • Television anchor Ejaz Haider tweeted: "When Charles Perrow was working on his theory of normal accidents, he totally missed out on 'kala bakra' black goat as a hedge against accidents." 

Doughnut Story

What would you do for a doughnut hole...ing...? -  http://bit.ly/2i7Zq1i

  • You might remember North Middle School in Joplin, Missouri as the place where hard-working eighth graders are rewarded for their work with a trip to a local sports complex… where the Christian staffers can minister to them http://bit.ly/2i7Yz0T. A lawsuit filed against the District last year is still pending.
  • A faculty member at that same school, we’re now learning, is bribing students with doughnuts to attend a Bible study. Clergy members are also brought in for the weekly events.
  • The American Humanist Association’s Appignani Humanist Legal Center revealed all the details http://bit.ly/2i7Z2jB, given to them by a parent, in a letter http://bit.ly/2i7YkCQ sent to the District earlier today.
  • Last year, the parent’s daughter asked her if she could have donuts that the school offered for breakfast. The parent told her daughter that she could do so, having no idea that the donuts were part of a Bible study activity led by faculty. The parent later learned that the donuts were a lure to get students to attend the Bible study, which takes place immediately before classes start in the morning.
  • The sessions are held in the auditorium. An NMS teacher, Mrs. Olsen, along with two to five people from a church, lead the meetings. Mrs. Olsen and/or the church staff stand at the auditorium doors to invite students in under the guise of “free donuts.” Students cannot get the donuts until service is over. …
  • … . Adults either Mrs. Olsen or church staff read scripture to the students; this is called a “lesson”… Mrs. Olsen then asked someone to lead the prayers and “talk to Jesus for us” and “pray for us.” She then continued to talk about Advent candles from the previous week, and she also read scripture. One of the men from the church took over for more preaching. A child then closed the session with a prayer. 

Holiday Second Half Discussion

We have a chat about our holiday traditions, booze and give you a few recipients! 

The discussion is available on patreon for a buck but the recipes are below for all!  

Big Gay Grulvine

  • Big jug o red wine
  • 4 cups water
  • 2 cups sugar or to taste
  • 5 or 6 large cinnamon sticks
  • 2 large oranges sliced and tossed in peel and all.

Spice packet 

  • About 60 whole cloves
  • Ginger

Put in mini-crock, soup pot, whatev's.  

Heat.  

Drink.  

Rate us on iTunes.

Beef Wellington -ish

Beef 

  • Marinated in lightly salted stock or broth, bit of wine, and peppers and garlic. Just go with your gut.
  • Poke holes and stuff with garlic. 
  • Go drink a beer or six. 
  • Remove and pat dry. 
  • Salt, pepper and dress to taste.
  • Sear like it slept with your wife.
  • Remove when browned and immediately rub with a great mustard. I like a stone ground honey mustard.
  • Chill to firm. 

Wrapping 

  • Pulse in a food processor or super finely chop about a pound of mushrooms. 
  • Move to frying pan. 
  • Add a couple tablespoons of olive oil, and a dollop of butter.
  • Begin to sautée, once hot add a sprig or two of thyme.
  • Season the mushroom mixture
  • Add a couple shots of dry white wine and cook for about 10 mins until all the wine has been absorbed.
  • The mixture should hold its shape when stirred - this is called mushroom duxelles. Remove the duxelles from the pan to cool.

Now, there's a quick fancy way and a bacon way. I'm going bacon. Deal with it. 

  • Slowly render bacon on a very low heat. This is a process but it will make really soft bacon, which is the goal.
  • Pour off grease if there's enough in the pan to cover the bacon. 
  • Make an effort to keep the strips flat and straight - a bacon press is suggested but a heavy pan set on the bacon in the frying pan will do.
  • Once the bacon is cooked but still very flexible and still solid strips. If you cook your bacon to a point where it's not suitable to make a wrap, eat that bacon and start over.
  • Let cool.

Breading 

  • Get a roll of biscuit dough at the store. I like to make my own but what you're going for here is the super buttery, fluffy kind. If making, I like to add gluten to make it extra malleable. 
  • Plastic wrap a cutting board.
  • Roll out dough as thinly as possible, you'll need enough to wrap your beef.
  • Spread the bacon over the dough to form a moisture barrier.
  • Spread the mushroom biz all over that. 
  • Put beef in the middle.
  • This part gets messy, just... give it a go. 
  • Roll the entire thing up.

I like to use the plastic wrap to keep it all together while I'm doing it sushi mat style. 

Close up the dough and trim any excess. Tightly roll the plastic wrap to make the entire thing as round and tight as possible. Like full log mode. 

Chill to firm up.

Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Brush the Wellington with a little more egg yolk and cook until golden and crisp. 

I can not stress the need for a meat thermometer enough. Once the bread puffs up there's no fucking way to tell when you're at. Get a thermometer.

  • In the ad, the ever-lovely Karis Wilde - check out her Instagram -  http://bit.ly/2i7VI7R
  • She plays Dana, a trans or genderqueer person debating her exit from a busy bathroom.
  • Though she says nothing, we know exactly whatʼs going through her head — anxiety, some fear, perhaps shame.
  • Finally, she takes a deep breath and with head held high, braves the world that is all too often cruel and calloused.
  • The text is superimposed that reads: “Stress test 8260 — Dana finds the courage to show thereʼs no wrong way to be a woman.”

From: Brother Brewer of www.skepticsbrewpub.com

Subject: Cream Ale

The reason a beer is classified as a "cream ale" is because it is made with a bit of "creamed" or now flaked maize corn. It was created by American brewers before prohibition to compete with the new lager styles that German brewers were bringing over. According to the BJCP: "Overall Impression: A clean, well-attenuated, flavorful American “lawnmower” beer. Easily drinkable and refreshing, with more character than typical American lagers. Aroma: Medium-low to low malt notes, with a sweet, corn-like aroma. Low levels of DMS are allowable but are not required. Hop aroma medium low to none, and can be of any variety although floral, spicy, or herbal notes are most common. Overall, a subtle aroma with neither hops nor malt dominating. Low fruity esters are optional."

Cum Rags for Congress': Satanists Protest Texas Abortion Law with Semen Socks | Broadly -  http://bit.ly/2goJiKe

  • Satanic Temple spokesperson, Jex Blackmore, is publicly encouraging people to mail cum-covered socks or whatever to Texas Governer Greg Abbott 
  • This is in response to an amazingly stupid new Texas law requiring funeral services for fetuses 
  • The campaign, titled "Cumrags for Congress," is meant to expose the absurdity of forcing people to treat fetal tissue as human remains. 
  • "The concept of the state mandating a non-medical ritual as part of the abortion procedure is offensive and crude, essentially demanding that all citizens adopt the moral, philosophical opinion that fetal tissue is comparable to a living human," 
  • When asked to elaborate on the symbolic significance of the action, Blackmore responds, "It's crass, humiliating, disgusting, a waste of resources, and absurd, just like this regulation." 

Man over reacts... oh god does he over-reacts... -  http://dailym.ai/2goCQ5Z

  • Grabbed a knife and chopped off his own dick 
  • His wife called for help. 
  • Wife, Manjhri, said he was a habitual drunk and she was angry with him 
  • He says it's been 10-12 years since they've had sex 

Religion really is the opiate of the masses or mormons -  http://bit.ly/2goVJFF

  • MRI scans performed by Univ. of Utah scientists monitored the brain activity of 19 devout Mormons 
  • During a variety of tasks including relaxing, praying, reading quotes from religious leaders, reading the bible, etc 
  • All subjects 7W-12M had been missionaries 
  • told to press a button when they “felt the spirit” 
  • “Their brains were being scanned the whole time, and the results showed an interesting pattern. The regions that lit up were part of the reward circuit of the brain, which researchers also know is stimulated by things like drugs, junk food, and sex.”

Pakistani Man Murders Wife In “Honor Killing” . . . 15 Years After Killing His First Wife For The Same Reason | JONATHAN TURLEY - http://bit.ly/2goJMQg

  • The man in his 50s has been charged with slitting his wife's throat in Pakistan during an argument and been arrested by police. 
  • "My wife had relations with another man. I am not ashamed what I have done,” 
  • while reportedly confessing to the murder. A mob who heard his wife's screams reportedly beat him when they discovered his actions. 
  • “I warned her many times but she did not understand. I even tried to convince her the night before I killed her." 
  • Taj Muhammad Wasan, a police inspector in the area, said the accused had already murdered his first wife, and mother of his three children, 15 years earlier on the same "grounds". 
  • "He had been imprisoned for killing his first wife who was his maternal uncle's daughter with whom he also had three children," said Mr. Wasan.   

A Spotting Story...

  • A Former Orthodox Jewish Woman Explains How She Had to Take Her Panties to a Rabbi for Inspection -  http://bit.ly/2goVLxh
  • Katia Aryeh, a former Orthodox Jew, writes in an article for Richard Dawkins‘ website about how, in addition to honoring the Sabbath and eating kosher, there was another less-discussed aspect of the faith that was truly disturbing: Niddah http://bit.ly/2goNiul
  • It’s a practice that says women have to be “clean” following their periods before they can have sex with their husbands again. 
  • Tradition says seven days after menstruation should be enough, but if there’s any ambiguity about it, don’t worry: Rabbis will check your panties http://bit.ly/2goLO30
    before giving you the green light. 
  • If during the seven days after menstruation any of the examination cloths inserted into the vagina contain even a tiny spot darker than tan, or a spot on her underwear bigger than a penny and darker than tan, she must take the underwear or cloth to a special rabbi for further evaluation. This Rabbi will then examine the color to determine if it is light enough for her to keep counting, or if it’s too dark or too red tinted such that she must begin counting the seven clean days over, even if it is day 7. Seeing a spot obviously induces massive anxiety for housewives longing for any affection from their husbands, many of whom also worry that their deprived husbands will start looking elsewhere. 

A tale as old as time...

Judge to Divorced Jewish Dad: You Were Wrong to Go to a Museum and Expose Your Child to Evolution - Friendly Atheist - http://bit.ly/2goNUA7

  • According to a judgment http://bit.ly/2goIiFS
    handed down last year, but made public only now, the couple had been members of the ultra-Orthodox Jewish Satmar sect, a group that shuns all aspects of modern life... “Jew-mishes”? But how quickly can they build a kosher barn? 
  • The mother wanted the father who is still an observant Jew but not quite that extreme anymore to give her kids the “full Satmar experience” when they were with him. She argued that he was violating that agreement by, among other things, taking them to a museum where they might learn about evolution. 
  • … given the Satmar approach to that theory of evolution, it seems to me to have been unwise of the father to take the children to a Museum which exhibits pictures which appear — or may be taken — to depict extracts from that very theory. In his closing submissions, the father says “I do not accept that showing them children’s story books or pictures on the wall, with pictures of monkeys with human faces or standing upright is teaching evolution”. That is a naïve statement: such pictures are likely to represent the evolution theory and they are likely to prompt these bright young children to ask questions which, if answered honestly, would involve some explanation of that theory. This assertion of the father does not demonstrate his full acceptance of the principle that these children should only be exposed to experiences in his world at a slow and sensitive pace. 
  • The judge also chastised the father for telling his five-year-old son that “babies grow in the mother’s tummy” and “mothers and fathers go to bed together.” Because that’s practically teaching the child about sex, 
  • Commenting on the judgment, BHA Campaigns Manager Richy Thompson said, ‘That a judge could criticise a father for seeking to educate his children in line with the established scientific consensus, information they would have received had they attended any state school in the country, and then defend the attempts of their mother and their school to withhold such information from them, is appalling. 
  • ‘Whilst on the face of it this seems to be an issue between mother and father, it speaks to a far wider problem. It remains the case that incidents like this simply wouldn’t arise if private schools were held to the same standards as state-funded schools, obliged to teach a broad and balanced curriculum that prepares children for life in the modern world and barred from promoting pseudoscience and creationism. This father and his children were failed by the education system and now they’ve been failed by the legal system, and we will be working to ensure that reforms are introduced to ensure these kinds of situations are to be avoided in the future.’

Naked Lizard Proves Hair Scales And Feathers Descend From Single Reptilian Ancestor Study Says - http://to.pbs.org/29ukdef

  • A decades-long scientific debate is finally resolved, thanks to a naked lizard. 
  • Scientists have uncovered the link between the hair of mammals, the feathers of birds and the scales of reptiles. And the discovery, published today in the journal Science Advances, suggests all of these animals, including humans, descended from a single reptilian ancestor approximately 320 million years ago. 
  • Before this study, the scientific community was divided over how hair, feathers, and scales evolved. Developmentally speaking, these different “skin appendages” start almost identically, but then appeared to hit a crossroad. While birds and mammals from places — thickened bits in the skin that blossom feathers or hairs — reptiles showed no signs of the feature. 
  • Michel Milinkovitch of the University of Geneva stumbled upon a naked lizard: a mutant form of the scaleless Australian bearded dragon. He discovered they did not express ectodysplasin-A EDA—a gene responsible for forming skin appendages, specifically places. 
  • As the team studied the EDA gene, they discovered the solution to the evolutionary debate: Contrary to previous findings, reptiles do have physical places. 
  • “They were always there,” Milinkovitch said. “We were just looking in the right place at the right time.” 
  • With this discovery, the evolutionary kink disappears. All amniotes — creatures that have an extra membrane or barrier around their eggs, including most mammals, birds, and reptiles — can trace their lineage back to a common reptilian ancestor. This includes bearded dragons, chickens, mice, and humans, just to name a few.

Listening to the post-election episode further cemented in my mind that this is a necessary and helpful show, especially in Wyoming and like places, to remind people they're not alone, inferior or wrong. Listening helped me get through the last couple weeks. Jim's personal portion took my breath away and punched me in the gut. I've listened since almost day 1 and love laughing along with you guys at times and rolling my eyes, presumably along with Jenn. I'm Christian, I hate hypocrisy, and I love the show.

Brain Dead Child Molester Apparently has a Lawyer - http://bit.ly/2fyIEuH
  • Convicted child molester, David Alan Lessor, in court for a sentencing hearing, said he'd fired his third lawyer but didn't need a new one
  • The judge, Miriam Gropper, advised him that he needs a lawyer for this serious matter, but ... well let's let him speak for himself:
  • Lessor said: “I have a lawyer. His name is Jesus Christ and he’s representing me in this courtroom today. And he’s going to speak truly today and going to address this court today providing you give me that opportunity.”
  • After complaining about getting an unfair trial, the judge told him the conviction stands, where Lessor said, “But my Jesus Christ, my Lord and my saviour, has forgiven me and pardoned me and found me not guilty.”
  • Lessor warned the judge that what she said and what Crown counsel Kristin Bryson said was “being heard by all of heaven. I’m going to strongly advise you that my God will send his angels to deliver me from your hands. So let’s proceed.”
  • The judge said she would proceed and asked Bryson to begin giving her submissions on sentencing, but Lessor again objected. “I think we should stand down,” he said. “This isn’t right. I need to talk to a lawyer about an appeal.”
 
Horrible Cunt blames “God's Will” for her reckless son killing 6 children

  • School bus driver, Johnthony Walker (let's take a minute here to make fun of that stupid-ass name), recklessly killed 6 and hospitalized 12, of the 37 grade-school aged students on his bus last week.
  • According to officials, he was driving well above the 30 MPH posted speed and swerved off the road, right, then left striking a driveway, mailbox, telephone pole and tree
  • Elementary School Principal Brenda Adamson-Cothran said via email that on Nov. 16, five days before the crash, “Six students reported that the bus driver of the red bus (366) was swerving and purposely trying to cause them to fall today.”
  • Walker, 24, now faces five counts of vehicular homicide, reckless endangerment and reckless driving.
  • Walker's mother has this to say, “My heart of love is going out for all that was in harm’s way of God’s will,” she said. “Sending out mine and our condolences to every family that God touched yesterday in this horrible accident. And I am asking for compassion also for my son.”

Stop telling people that their atheist license plates are obscene - http://bit.ly/2fyKNH3
  • Ben Hart tried to get a personalized plate for his car in Kentucky saying, “IM GOD”
  • He was turned down by the kentucky Division of Motor Vehicle officials claiming that the request was “obscene or vulgar,” but then later saying it was because the plate was “not in good taste.”
  • Mr. Hart had had the exact same plate in Ohio, where he'd lived for the past 12 years.
  • So now, as expected, The ACLU of Kentucky and the Freedom From Religion Foundation have now [filed a lawsuit on behalf of Ben Hart against the state’s DMV
  • The lawsuit challenges certain regulations governing personalized plates such as allowing govt. officials to deny plates based on vague notions of “good taste” as well as those barring personalized plates from communicating religious, anti-religious or political messages.
  • “Under the First Amendment, government officials do not have the authority to censor messages simply because they dislike them,” says ACLU-KY Legal Director William Sharp. “And in this instance, personalized license plates are a form of individual speech equally deserving of First Amendment protection.”

Aaron's Story - Malawi Hyena Man Jailed 2 Years Over Traditional Sexual Customs - http://bit.ly/2fyJt6I
  • Malawi police arrested Eric Aniva in July, following orders from Malawi President Peter Mutharika.
  • Eric Aniva earlier told both local and international media that he slept with more than 100 young girls and widows during an initiation ceremony known as “Kusasa Fumbi” or “Removing Dust,” and “Fisi” or Hyena.
  • Fisi is a traditional custom in southern Malawi: a man is hired and paid to have sex with widows allegedly to exorcise evil spirits that may bring death to the bereaved family.
  • Kusasa Fumbi is another custom practiced in the area: hiring a man to sleep with young girls who have reached puberty in order to prepare them for married life... you know, training wheels rape....
  • “We feel there are a lot of errors in the judgment which has occasioned the actual miscarriage of justice. Despite all the allegations that were made as to hundreds of women that were violated or used, not even 10 or five were brought to court to testify that this guy violated us or forced us to do this,” said Chipeta proving that lawyers suck everywhere...
  • The verdict has attracted anger and resentment among people in Nsanje.
  • Dinwell Ching’oma is one of them. He said the sentencing of Aniva will never stop them from performing their cultural practices.
  • “What government should have done is to teach us to reform our culture. For example, if they just advised us that we should first go for HIV testing before we engage in any cultural practice that involves sex,” said Ching’oma.
  • Nsanje district is rich in cultural practices that require men to sleep with women. Besides Fisi and Kusasa Fumbi, there are four more cultural practices that require men sleeping with women.
  • One of them is Dzwande, in which a man is hired to sleep with a single mother when her newly born baby is six months old. Village elders say the aim is to keep the baby away from disease.
  • A hyena is a traditional position in some parts of southern Malawi, held by a man who initiates young women into adulthood through sex. A hyena is a man paid to have sex with young women between the ages of 12–17, as a part of a rite of passage called "kusasa fumbi" (‘brushing off the dust’), (sexual cleansing). The rite lasts for three days. Hyenas are paid from $4 to $7 each time. The rite is believed to prevent disease. Hyenas are chosen for their moral character and are believed to be incapable of catching diseases such as HIV/AIDS. It can place the young girls at risk of HIV infection because the hyena has sexual intercourse with all the girls and the ritual requires the exchange of sexual fluids so condoms are not used. - http://bit.ly/2fyQaFU
  • It is also practiced in Kenya, Zambia, Uganda, Tanzania, Mozambique, Ghana, Angola, Ivory Coast, Congo, and Nigeria.

Because a week void of reviews is sad for us all. I only recently found this show but it's become one of my favorites. There are so many atheist podcasts now it's hard to figure out which ones are really worth listening to unfortunately, I can't listen to them all. But this one combines atheism and beer, which are two of my favorite things! They also hold a good balance between humor and information. Podcasts are either hilarious or informative but rarely both. These guys pull it off. Keep up the humor and beer recommendations!

Federal Trade Commission announced a new “Enforcement Policy Statement on Marketing Claims for Over-the-Counter (OTC) Homeopathic Drugs.”
  • This means the FTC will require that homeopathic “drugs” be held to the same standard of efficacy and safety as other products making similar claims, meaning there must be scientific evidence for health-related claims
  • The policy notes that most homeopathic “drugs” have no valid studies using current methods to verify efficacy
  • The labels must communicate that “1) there is no scientific evidence that the product works, and 2) the product’s claims are based only on theories of homeopathy from the 1700s that are not accepted by most modern medical experts.”

  • She had taken part in an alternative health session involving paida lajin therapy.
  • Paida lajin involves patients being slapped or vigorously slapping themselves repeatedly as part of a "self-healing" process.
  • Matthew Carr-Gomm said his mother had been seeking alternative treatments after being diagnosed with diabetes in 1999.

  • "She was always keen to try and find alternative methods of treating and dealing with her diabetes and was very interested in alternative and holistic medicine and therapies.
  • "I know she was desperate to try and cure herself of this disease. She always maintained a healthy lifestyle and was adamant that nothing would stop her from living a full life."
  • She wrote: "Large areas of my body... bruised and blue which indicated that a lot of 'sha' or poisoned blood and toxins had been released" ... you know, that or you had to bruise because you just got your ass recreationally kicked
  • This nonsense “Slap therapy hit the news-o-sphere after participants in one of Xiao’s slap therapy workshops forced their 7-year-old diabetic son to stop taking his insulin and fast for three days before taking him to one of Xiao’s seminars in Australia, wherein his parents and Xiao beat him until he vomited, stopped breathing, and died in his hotel room.”

Anglican group GAFCON slammed for publishing ‘name and shame’ list of gay clergy members http://bit.ly/2fDfWok
  • An Anglican group has been criticized for publishing a list of gay clergy members in the Church of England.
  • The list was released by GAFCON UK and included clergy known to be in a same-sex relationship.
  • It also included clergy who have presided over same-sex unions.
“While orthodox believers certainly hope that the Church of England does not go further in violating Lambeth 1.10, the situation in England as it currently stands is already a scandal within the Anglican Communion,” the list read.
  • It refers to Lambeth 1.10, the 1998 document which explicitly bans gay clergy from marrying or clergy members in general from overseeing same-sex marriages.
  • Tracey Byrne, the chief executive of the Lesbian and Gay Christian Movement described the list as “contemptible”, adding: “It is quite clear that their intention is to ‘name and shame’.
“This goes beyond political strategy – this is a deliberate attempt to deny God’s presence in the lives of real people, and to condemn them by public shaming.”
  • But Gafcon has denied the allegations, as press officer Reverend Andrew Gross said: “There was never any intention to ‘name and shame’ individuals. How could there be? The document lists public actions taken by individuals who are very proud of what they have been doing. In many of these cases, these activists were actively courting the media in order that their violations of Lambeth 1.10 would have the greatest possible impact.
“For these same activists to then turn around and claim that cataloging each of their media blitzes is some kind of personal attack is completely disingenuous. The “naming and shaming” narrative was invented by activists in a self-serving attempt to paint themselves as victims. It is completely inaccurate.”
  • Reverend James Paice, part of the GAFCON UK Taskforce, told Christian Today: “This report is shocking because it shows the extent to which revisionism has infected the the Church of England.” He said CofE leaders had turned a “blind eye to blatant violations” and added more conservative Anglican leaders around the world had “concluded that the Church of England is a sinking ship”.

Hello, Wrathful studios. This is Dr. Hannibal Lecter. I wanted to express my appreciation for your tasteful reviews and to give a message to Aaron. I understand that you’re upset that you have no fans, but you must remember that fan is short for fanatic and Aaron you have a fan in me to talk.

No more Labatt’s forever… - http://bit.ly/2fyardE

  • Since 1962 Labatt workers in Edmonton, were allotted 52–12-packs a year as part of their benefits package (in the form of a pre-loaded gift card)
  • Upon retirement, that perk was continued for life (and even continued on for the spouse when the worker died)
  • Labatt, which is now owned by Belgian InBev (400 beer brands, $55B in annual revenue), decided to review the policy as a cost-cutting move
  • Molson made a similar cut in 2009, siphoning off its beer allotment to 2,400 retirees, the company estimated it would save just over $1 million a year.
