In this episode, we take a deep dive into the abortion issue because the US Supreme Court is looking at a Mississippi law that ignores established science and bans abortion at 15 weeks.

In this episode, Doug is fed up with the idiot science deniers who keep pushing mask and vaccination mandate bans. Doug hates wearing a mask too but their failed logic, and that is being kind, will prolong the pandemic and harm people needlessly. Why do the people who do the right thing have to carry the petulant children who kick and stomp their feet. Enough is enough.

Ohio Rep. John Becker (R-65)

Rep. John Becker (R-65) claims to be Ohio’s most conservative legislator. He also claims to be ‘Pro-Life,’ Pro-Gun, and ‘Limited Government’, yet a recent anti-abortion bill he introduced shows Becker to not only not be pro-life or for limited government but also shows he isn’t very bright about basic biology. He’s made Ohio government even more of a laughing stock in the country and it passed a so-called ‘heartbeat’ bill.

Comedian Adam Ferrara has a very direct one-liner that he uses to define Catholicism: “Basically, if it feels good, stop.”

Depending on who you ask, Catholics may or may not qualify as Christians. The idea of preserving oneself, however, as a matter of faith, is present in both. The Bible says that “your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit.” A vessel that should remain pure to carry out the Lord’s work.

But as we know, many people of Christian faith practice some form of indulgence and don’t believe it to compromise their faith. So the fact that the Christian right takes such an issue with marijuana is a bit confounding.
