In this episode Doug looks at Bari Weiss’s appearance on Bill Maher’s HBO show and why her flippant Pandemic of Bureaucracy is both childish and dangerous to us all. Then we look at a recent church and state case over a Boston flag pole that was heard at the US Supreme Court. It doesn’t look good for secular people or for more than 40 years of settled jurisprudence.
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. We look at the history of abortion rights in this country and why the Christian Nationalist’s argument that a fetus is a child is factually wrong.
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.
In this episode Doug talks about why people who do good things then turn bad shouldn’t be given a free pass just because they did something good previously. Then Doug talks about a recently fired Catholic priest who checked all the scary Trump fan club boxes when it comes to COVID 19.
In this episode Doug talks to Nick Little, Legal Director of the Center for Inquiry, about several recent federal court decisions that ignore science and logic to allow churches to ignore public health orders during this pandemic. Where is the irreparable harm from a limit to the number of people allowed to particpate in an in-person church service. Nick explains how this all started with the Hobby Lobby contraceptive case and we will be living with it for some time to come.
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.
