What do you know, Episode 1. We managed to get and stay on the outline, and only went over by 20 minutes or so. Here are the talking points and links:
We explore Rick Santorum’s anti-gay tendencies and the possibility that he is our country’s most homophobic major candidate ever.
This is where I call Mormon beliefs bullshit and we conclude that moving to Mexico to avoid prosecution for polygamy doesn’t make you a Mexican, it makes you an expatriate.
This article gets us talking about the nature vs.nurture debate and it’s impact on the LGBT movements’ efforts.
Items of interest:
Matt – Assumption of Mary
This is just some typical Catholic craziness I wanted to point out. The short version: Mary physically floated up to heaven. Seriously.
We get our science geek on. We also reference another of my favorite podcasts, The Skeptic’s Guide to the Universe.
I forgot to write down the time during my listen-through, so I’m not sure what section this was supposed to be in: Matt Dillahunty is who I would try to be if I were smarter, quicker on my synapses, better versed in Biblical verses and history, and a better debater. I’m not quite gay on him, but it’s pretty close. He’s the host of two of my favorite podcasts (they’re live internet radio and/or TV shows as well!), The Atheist Experience and The Non-Prophets. He’s also the President of the Atheist Community of Austin.
