Reading Time: 2 minutes

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

We talked about:

— Televangelist Kenneth Copeland wants you to keep tithing even if you’ve lost your job. (1:38)

— Trump adviser Paula White still wants “seed” money from you. (3:38)

— Blaming abortion and gay people for a crisis doesn’t go as far as it used to. (6:50)

Jerry Falwell, Jr. called a parent of three of his Liberty University students a “dummy” for questioning his handling of the virus. (13:04)

— What names comes to mind when you think of atheism? The answers make no sense. (16:08)

— Ark Encounter and the Creation Museum were going to remain open… until they reversed course. (31:32)

— Apparently we’re not allowed to use the “hate group” label during a pandemic. (37:40)

Pope Francis will have an empty Easter celebration. (42:09)

Donald Trump is still very, very, very anti-LGBTQ. (44:40)

— The Museum of the Bible’s Dead Sea Scrolls are all fake. (45:11)
