SecularPerspective

Click to download…

Trumps Parade got canceled. The Anti LGBT Baker from Colorado is back in the news for a Transgender cake this time. Planet Fitness was sued over a trans-gendered person in a locker room. Voting about medicinal marijuana is apparently a religious freedom issue now? Finally, the LDS church/the Mormons don’t want to be called either of those terms anymore.

We also talk about Roncalli High School in Indianapolis, which made national news by firing a guidance counselor after she was outed as being married to another woman.

TSP157: The Fight for Roe v Wade

SecularPerspective

We discuss the recent nomination of Brett Kavanaugh for Supreme Court Justice and why it is a bad thing. This inevitably leads to a long discussion on Roe v Wade and the multiple Facebook debates that Chad has had lately. We also discuss the rise in secularism in Iraq, Austria shutting down mosques and a shift in the attitude of Southern Baptists.

We try to wrap our heads around what has just happened at the press conference in Helsinki with Presidents Trump and Putin. We then go through a few other topics before wrapping up with updated numbers and protesters at the Ark Encounter on its two year anniversary.

TSP155: Let’s Tax the Churches

SecularPerspective

Click to download…

At least for a little while churches are going to be taxed because the Trump administration wasn’t smart enough to check for loopholes in their new tax code. Orthodox Jews in Florida want to overstep their bounds using religious freedom as an excuse. A while back we spoke about the Word of Life Church and how they beat a teenager to death. There is now a small documentary about that on tv. Finally, there is another “White Civil Rights” Rally planned for August in Washington DC.
