We start with reviews of a couple of documentaries that we recommend. We then get into an increase in exorcisms, Ark encounter ticket sales numbers and Mike Pence’s doctor resigns. My favorite headline ever is “Oklahoma Pastor Busted Running a White Supremacist Prostitution Ring”

TSP147: Utah Polygamists Get Singled Out

SecularPerspective

Click to download…

Amanda has a book report to give that ties in to a previous story about Warren Jeffs. A new law has been put into place in Utah that creates harsher penalties for abuse if you are a polygamist. We also mention an ex-priest with a ton of child porn and torture pictures. And why weren’t vaccines mentioned in the Bible?
