TSP 31: Heathen Hodgepodge 5 – Batfleck is dumb and JOSH FEUERSTEIN (Anthony & Matt)

Right Click Image, Save As to download the episode…

Here is another Heathen Hodgepodge entry, where anything is game for discussion. We typically bring up news, articles and happenings in the world of religion and secularism. In this episode, Matt vents about and criticizes the internet’s favorite proselytizer, Josh Feuerstein after he selfishly tried to make a dying woman feel bad. Then, Anthony tears into Ben Affleck (Batfleck) for his idiotic tantrum on “Real Time with Bill Maher.”

Are our public schools really secular? Is it illegal to pray in school? Of course not. Listen as Anthony breaks down the silly notion that prayer and God are absent from America’s public schools; and why he’s okay with that.
