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

We talked about:

— Order Elle the Humanist and get a 10% discount with the promo code “friendlyatheist”!

— The Arkansas legislature has passed a bill that would force women seeking an abortion to call an anti-abortion hotline first. (0:42)

— The same Arkansas legislature passed a bill allowing churches to hold super-spreader events during a pandemic. (5:30)

— The leader of one of the largest atheist groups in the country is stepping down and hoping a person of color replaces him. (10:12)

— Are Southern Baptists still racist? Here’s Exhibit 1. (15:50)

— A priest on YouTube called out “pro-life” hypocrisy and viewers lashed out! (32:00)

— Democrats rejected saying the Pledge of Allegiance at House Judiciary Committee meetings because it’s pointless. (40:45)

— A report on a German archdiocese reveals some truly horrifying details. (44:15)

— The Catholic Church hoarded billions of dollars in PPP loans. (49:53)
