The Secular Perspective

Chad and Amanda answer a question from a listener from Youtube. Then we realize how glad we are to be wrong about Alabama. Then we discuss a Tribe of people in Indonesia that were forced to change religions just to be able to survive. We also mention the 7 banned word for the CDC and a Joel Osteen lookalike.

*** I mention putting this up a couple of days after recording it. I'm off on my dates of episode release when we recorded. You're not missing something, I'm just forgetting how much work I had already done ahead of time.

A note was found in the butt of a Jesus statue. We make predictions on the Moore/Jones special election and discuss the aftermath of Al Franken's resignation. In other news, Mike Pence is a snitch and Donald Trump really should stay out of other countries affairs.

** We are also making a call to Ex-Jehovah's Witnesses that are survivors of abuse that was covered up in some form by the church. Due to input after a recent episode, we have decided to plan an episode or two to highlight stories of survivors that are willing to share them. Just give us an email to let us know if you are interested.

To celebrate our 100th episode we are all together including Matt who helped us get the show started back in the day. We all picked our top songs to be played at our own funerals. We play parts and discuss why we like them. This is a pretty long episode but an important one to me personally so I hope you all enjoy.

*We clearly do not own the rights to any of this music. All rights belong to their respective labels, blah, blah blah.

** During this recording you will hear a bit of yelling in the background. I apologize for my friends not being able to play a quiet card game and instead played the loudest game they could think of. People are not dying, they are just being competitive.
