Waiting 4 Wrath - Episode 059 - The One Where We Drunk Dial The Audience To Say Happy Holidays!

December 25, 2015
00:0000:00

Welcome to the Christmas edition of Waiting for Wrath;

where we rip apart our advent calendar;

while trying to find some good will towards men;

where we try to ignore the stupid in our world, just this once.

We’re not religious but we make no apologies for celebrating the holiday — so — let’s have a discussion, revel in the merriment and, some god forbid, have a laugh or two.

Now, grab some eggnog and help us celebrate the shit out of this — because, while birthday boy Jesus Christ hasn’t struck us down yet, we are trying his patience!

Shea’s Life Lesson

This week I learned that I have gotten out of bed 365 days a year for 28 years. That’s 10,220 sit-ups… And I don’t have one ab to show for it…

Jenn’s Actual Lesson

Did you know Rudolph’s name was originally Reginald, and the author first thought of him as a moose?

Jim’s Message From the Rainbow Kingdom

On today’s flight, I’m in charge of holiday safety. This means it’s my job to drink… To reduce the amount of alcohol that goes into Shea. I love this job…and this show.

Round Table Discussion

Big thank you to Matthew for giving us the huge gift of the advent calendar of beers that we’ve been pumping for weeks. Today is the day that finally break into that massive case of pounders and get to the business of catching the massive buzz he intended.

Shea brought us a gift!

We don’t have any new iTunes reviews or Patrons to thanks this week, so please, listeners, do us a solid and send us your thanks in the form of a weekly contribution to the production of the show.

If you want to spend your hard-earned money on yourself, we completely understand, but could you please do us the solid of leaving us a big, five-star review on iTunes. These go a long, long way to bumping us up the rankings and exposing us to potential new listeners.

Second Half

Identify which of the three books: Bible, Quran or Mein Kampf; contains the following passages:

  1. The fearful and unbelieving and the abominable and murderers and whoremongers and sorcerers and idolaters and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone.
  2. Endless ruin has overtaken the enemy, you have uprooted their cities; even the memory of them has perished.
  3. Anyone who dares to lay hands on the highest image of the Lord commits sacrilege against the benevolent creator of this miracle and contributes to the expulsion from paradise.
  4. We will drive the guilty to hell thirsty.
  5. He that believeth not shall be damned.
  6. As for these towns, we destroyed them when they acted unjustly, and we have appointed a time for their destruction.
  7. Almighty God, bless our arms when the time comes; be just as thou hast always been; judge now whether we be deserving of freedom; Lord, bless our battle.
  8. I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.
  9. Wherever you are, death will overtake you, though you are in lofty towers.
  10. Gold has become the exclusive ruler of life, but the time will come when man will again bow down before a higher god.
  11. Those among you who exceeded the limits of the Sabbath, so we said to them: Be as apes, despised and hated.
  12. The punishment shall be doubled to him on the day of resurrection, and he shall abide therein in abasement.
  13. Verily a man cannot serve two masters.
  14. Their sword will become our plow, and from the tears of war the daily bread of future generations will grow.
  15. The prophet seldom has any honor in his own country.

Now, grab a beer and help us test the god hypothesis — because, while Hodr (Norse god of darkness and winter)hasn’t struck us down yet, we are trying his patience!

Shea’s Life Lesson

This week I learned the quickest way to get an answer on the internet is not to ask a question, but deliberately post an incorrect answer. People are quicker to correct you than to answer and inquiry; it’s called Godwin’s Law. 

Jenn’s Actual Lesson

Did you know that nearly all of the most popular Christmas songs including ‘Winter Wonderland’, ‘Chestnuts roasting…’, and ‘I’m Dreaming of a white Christmas’ were written by Jewish people

In This Week’s Show

Bryan Fisher installs solar panels on a Kentucky homeless shelter to power his anti-LGBTQ electric fence around his New York based S&M dungeon for wealthy priests. Because no one wants to be called ‘gay’ just for doing a bunch of blow and blowing a bunch of guys.

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

This week I learned that if my body is ever found dead on a jogging trail, just know that I was murdered elsewhere and dumped there.

Shea Presents: Good ‘Ol Fashioned home grown terrorism

This week we truly had a black Friday when a man entered a Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood and open fired, killing three and wounding 9 others. This is another tragedy in a laundry list of attacks against people trying to live their lives without interference from crazy god fearing people. This is sick, and I’m fucking over it. I honestly have no problem with any religion as long as it doesn’t hurt anyone else, your belief in a magical sky jew doesn’t bother me in the least, in fact if it makes you feel better and encourages you to be better, than more power to you. But as soon as you start to use the words in your little black book to beat others down and force others to your beliefs then I’m fucking done. I suppose it’s too early to know exactly why this heinous fuck nut, I’m refusing to say his name, I refuse to give credit, committed the atrocious crimes but having him utter “no more baby parts” certainly helps us paint a picture of this guys ideas. 

I have really been trying to rationalize why people would want to close and attack clinics that help women with their reproductive health, they provide a service so abortions aren’t as necessary, birth control, check ups, STI treatment, pregnancy tests, and overall health and wellness for everyone who walks through that door. I have been to a Planned Parenthood on more than one occasion, they checked me for SDT’s, gave me free condoms, and even helped out a girlfriend after our contraceptive broke. They don’t deal in abortions, yes it’s a service they will perform, but there is so much more that these clinics do for our population. 

Anti-abortion incidents as violent as Friday’s shooting are rare – more often, activists choose “disruption” tactics, according to figures from the National Abortion Federation (NAF). If the shooting Prices k to have been motivated by abortion, it will be the ninth murder by anti-abortion activists since 1977. NAF has also recorded 17 attempted murders between 1977 and 2014.

Mostly these cowards and bigots chose to use tactics like trespassing, vandalism, burglary and stalking, in fact since 1995 there has been over 5000 violent incidents recorded at US abortion clinics. 

They include 922 reported incidents of vandalism, 663 anthrax or bioterrorism threats, 354 stalking incidents and 204 reported death threats.

I don’t want to assume that all these attacks and threats are all because of a little black book written hundreds of years ago, but with the overwhelming evidence pointing to religion I have a hard time seeing any other possibilities.

With that, I want to open this up to you guys, what could be the motivation behind these attacks? I pride myself in being relatively good at empathizing with any belief, but this one I’m having a lot of trouble with.

More acts of terror
