Round Table Discussion
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.

HL1 - Practical Bible Lessons - http://bit.ly/2nSDxpQ
 
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.

This Week’s Stories

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.

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!)”

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…?

Waiting 4 Wrath - Episode 122 - The One Where Texas Quacks Like A Goose

March 10, 2017
00:0000:00
In this week’s show, dirty cops toss aborted potatoes at a preacher’s inflat-a-butt so Indian zombies don’t eat all our health care.
 
Now, grab a beer and help us test the god hypothesis — because, while Aeolus, the Greek god of wind and air (because it’s windy as a motherfucker here this week) hasn’t struck us down yet, we are trying his patience!
 
Shea’s Life Lesson
This week I learned that convincing your wife she is crazy or paranoid is called gaslighting and it's a dick move. And convincing her she's a replicant with artificially implanted human emotions is called bladerunning and it's a Phillip K. Dick move.
 
But before we get to all that, let’s have a beer!

This Week’s Show

Round Table Discussion
We had a few communications!
David the Ox texted us to let us know that…
Lance Henriksen was also killed by a predator, a terminator and an alien. I will now finish listening to the podcast in case y'all say the answer.
Thanks! That was driving me nuts and I’m also too lazy to Google stuff or do any real show prep ;) ~A
 
German Denis left us what is, in all likelihood, the most honest voicemail we’ve ever had!
And, for the record, we don’t know what we were trying to say either…
 
We also got a voicemail from… someone… who said that Shea was his spirit animal and that Big Gay Jim was the best!
 
We totally agree.
 
Unfortunately, as happens sometimes, the message is a little messy so we’ll skip the audio but we wanted to say thanks and keep’em coming!
 
Nothing makes us feel like a real grown-up podcast quite like people leaving us a message at (513) 760–0463.
 
We’re getting some t-shirts made for ourselves to wear at ReAsonCon in April and we thought we’d throw it out to our listeners too.
 
If you’re interested in a Waiting 4 Wrath t-shirt, email us at tshirt@waiting4wrath.com and let us know what you like. We’re thinking the black logo on a white shirt, or our preference, a white logo on a black t-shirt.
 
We’re open to whatever, so tell us what you think. Right now it looks like they’ll come in at around $20-25 each.
 

Headlines

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.
Stop Using The E-Word! - http://on.wusa9.com/2nl4cKI
  • Fuckhead, Nathan Daniel Larson of Prince William County, VA, was convicted of threatening to kill President Obama in 2009
  • He served a 16-month sentence and three years of probation, then had his voting rights restored by Governor, Terry McAuliffe
  • Now that he’s once again eligible, he is running for state house, after turning in enough signatures
  • 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.
  • He lost a run for the same house in 2008, running as a Libertarian
 

This Week’s Stories

Shea’s Story
 
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.
Also, run this story through Grammarly or a spell-checker. It's worth the laugh — and that's me saying that! ~ A
 
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?“
Fuck This Guy And The Pope That Protects Him!
 
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,"

Waiting 4 Wrath - Episode 121 - The One Where Jenn Sticks It To The Patriarchy

March 3, 2017
00:0000:00
In this week’s show, The Grand Mufti’s labia are glued to an online preachers dick until they both leave Ark Encounter and vote PORP.
 
Now, grab a beer and help us test the god hypothesis — because, while Dagda (The Irish-Celtic god of the earth and treaties) hasn’t struck us down yet, we are trying his patience!
 
Shea’s Life Lesson
This week I learned that celery is 95% water and 100% not tacos.
 
Jenn’s Actual Lesson
Did you know recently passed actor Bill Paxton was raised a Roman Catholic by his mother? The star of Aliens, Titanic and Big Love seemed to find it...amusing.
“I was raised Catholic, and when we take communion, the wafer is a symbol of the body and blood of Christ. Somebody could think, ‘What the hell? There’s a guy on the cross, he’s been tortured and killed and these people are symbolically eating his body?'”
But before we get to all that, let’s have a beer!

Headlines

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.
 

This Week’s Stories

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."
