Rank #1: 067 - Manipulating the Data

Podcast cover
Read more

On this episode we talk about a recent article in the Chicago Tribune about States bungling or manipulating the data concerning the Covid-19 pandemic, something we speculated about weeks ago on this very podcast. We discuss how the States are using this data as justification to "reopen the economy" and the ramifications of these actions.

Rank #2: 063 - The Bible Says What

Podcast cover
Read more

On this episode we welcome Michael Wiseman the creator and host of The Bible Says What?!?! Podcast who sits in for Jeff. We discuss the continued lack of a competent response from the current administration as well as the blatant defiance of the advice of medical professionals to practice social distancing by pastors imploring their flock to attend church services. We also talk about a certain Italian priest who is achieving legendary (I'm thinking Sainthood) status after "refusing" the use of a respirator after contracting the virus and passing away. Lastly, we fell down a deep, multi-layered, rabbit hole about Magic Mormon Underwear.

Rank #4: 035 - The Methodist Vote to Confirm Hatred and Bigotry

Podcast cover
Read more

On this episode we discuss the recent vote by delegates of the United Methodist Church to strengthen it's opposition to gay marriage and ban on LGBTQ clergy. We examine the fallout of the vote and how it could effect the second largest protestant denomination in the United States. Will this cause a continued decline in membership and attendance or will this be a fissure that could end up splitting the church on political and social lines? Only time will tell, but that doesn't stop us from weighing in on the subject. Also, as always we explore a rabbit hole or two along the way.

Rank #5: 023 - It's Not The Religion, It's The Politics

Podcast cover
Read more

On this episode we kick things off with a discussion about the current political climate surrounding the Governor's Race in Georgia and it's impact on local businesses including one of Jeff's favorite local micro breweries. Along the way we talk about business we personally boycott and the reasons why, the recent controversial allegations about Brett Kavanaugh, and U2's Bono and his recent statements concerning the Pope and the Catholic Church. We also touch on two topics that many would consider to be oxymorons, "Secular Conservatives" and "Progressive Muslims". Mostly on this episode Jerry, who showed up extra salty and contrarian this week, tries to pin Jeff down about when it comes to evangelicals does he have a bigger issue with their religion or their politics.

On this episode, after months of idle threats, we welcome as our special guest, "Honorary Heathen", Friend of the Pod, and Atheist Pastor Gretta Vosper. Jeff and Gretta have been friends for years. After Jeff reminds Gretta about an experience she has tried to forget, (when they first met) we have a conversation about who she is and how she came to be an atheist who happens to be the Pastor of a United Church of Canada congregation in Toronto. We talk about her work with Oasis in Toronto and building communities. We also dig into the story of her "Heresy Trial" and where she is today in it's aftermath.

Rank #9: 017 - SCOTUS and Civility

Podcast cover

On this episode we take a deep dive into the The Supreme Court Of The United States. Our discussion centers around the bombshell announcement that after serving for 30 years, the high courts swing vote, Justice Anthony Kennedy, has decided to resign. Also, what the implications of having 45 name his replacement will be for progressives and the secular community. As you well know, it wouldn't be an episode of the Godless Heathens without a rabbit hole or two. This week, we talk about a 28 year old first time primary candidate who took out a democratic heavy hitter in Queens, our First Lady's choice in fashion, and our old buddy Rev. Robert Jeffress's church service that looked more like a pep rally for the U.S. Military. Lastly, we also look at the lack of civility in the current political landscape.

Rank #11: 058 - The Heathens Go To Church

Podcast cover
Read more

On this episode the Godless Heathens went to church, on purpose, and not for a wedding, funeral or other family commitment. Not just any church, we attended the 4th largest Mega-Church in the Country, The North Point Community Church in Alpharetta, Ga. home to Pastor Andy Stanley. We have had many discussions about Andy, his church, and "seeker friendly" churches like his. With two of the three Godless Heathens having never attended a non-denominational evangelical seeker friendly church, we decided that if we were going to talk about it, we should probably see it with our own eyes. We discuss our preconceived notions, initial reactions and individual experiences and dig into the good and the bad of Andy's sermon.

This episode we discuss the recent conviction and light sentencing of Cardinal Pell in Australia and a recent what turns out to not be a Pew, but instead a Gallup Poll on Catholics. We later discuss the new restrictive abortion legislation in Georgia and the recent response from Democrat Female State Representatives with their proposed "The Testicular Bill of Rights".

Rank #19: 029 - Herd Immunity

Podcast cover
Read more

With the majority of us stricken with head colds, we were almost down a Heathen, or two this week. But, we dug deep and found the intestinal fortitude, the Acetaminophen, and the Dextromethorphan (along with other liquid libations) required to rise up and overcome the hurdles in our path. On this weeks episode we start off with a discussion of a recent preventable outbreak at a private school in Ashville, N.C. and the larger issue of religious exemptions to vaccinations. Later we dissect a tweet asking if evangelicalism is more of a cultural identity than a moral framework. (Oooh, I can't wait to find out what side of the equation Jeff comes down on) Next, we discuss how soon you divulge your atheism to new friends and acquaintances. Lastly, throughout all of this, Jeff watches a soccer game.

Rank #20: 055 - The Falkirk Center

Podcast cover
Read more

On this episode we discuss The Falkirk Center for Faith and Liberty. The Falkirk Center is a recently opened Christian think tank at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Va. Liberty University's president Jerry Falwell Jr and Turning Point USA's founder Charlie Kirk have joined forces and opened the center to (in their words) "proclaim the Truth of Jesus Christ" and in the process, "advance His Kingdom and renew American ideals." We also discuss presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren's answer to the question of what she will do to ensure the rights of atheist. If that's not enough, we talk about the myth of the Judeo-Christian tradition of America's founding.
