Reading Time: 2 minutes

In our latest podcast, Jessica and I discussed the past week in politics and atheism.

We talked about:

— A condom company can now claim the moral high ground over evangelical Christians thanks to a wall of chewed-up gum. (0:29)

— A Christian legal group condemned a website that bluntly says what churches believe about homosexuality. (5:18)

— A Catholic priest denied communion to Joe Biden. Biden should welcome that. (13:42)

Kanye West thinks he got a $68 million tax refund because he loves Jesus. (21:06)

— Former Senator Kay Hagan, the subject of an anti-atheist smear campaign, died this week. (26:13)

— Why did Paula White formally join the Trump administration? (31:44)

— The resignation of Democratic Rep. Katie Hill is a travesty for so many reasons. (38:18)

Nicholas Kristof of the New York Times says people like Jerry Falwell, Jr. have driven young people away from Christianity. He’s missing the bigger picture. (48:02)

— The Chicago Bears kicker who said atheists should believe in God after a game-winning field goal… missed a game-winning field goal. (55:20)
