We give some updates to a couple of previous stories to begin the show. Then we touch on a man claiming to be Jesus choking a Mulsim woman that was making a delivery to his house. We end with the new story of Allison Mack and the sex cult she had been wrapped up in.

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”

A Pastor has come out of the Atheist closet, Trumps signs junk on the National Day of Prayer, and David Silverman gets caught up in sexual assault and financial issues. We end on the Alfie Evans story as it has played out in the UK.

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?
