379 - Stochastic Terrorism

May 31st, 2022

This was recorded before the shooting at the Robb elementary school in Uvalde, Texas. The fact that we were talking about another shooting in Texas that happened just before the mass murder in Uvalde only serves to drive home the point that America is awash in guns and, as a consequence, the blood of innocent lives lost.

We break down some of Ukraine and Russia's history to give you all some background information about what may be the start of World War III.

368 - Dan Visits The Left Show

February 15th, 2022

Dan's work has been absolutely nuts lately and he's been putting in 10 to 14-hour days throughout the week. He also had a bit of a work emergency when we were supposed to record, so we didn't end up recording a regular episode of the Godless Rebelution.

 

The good news is that some old friends of the show, JM Bell and JC Carter, were looking for a guest to fill a spot and record an episode of The Left Show with them on Sunday before the Super Bowl, so Dan was lucky enough to chat with them for a while.

 

And because we didn't record an episode of the Godless Rebelution, this seemed like the perfect opportunity to introduce new listeners and others who haven't heard of it yet to the awesomeness that is The Left Show by cross-posting their show to our feed this week.

 

It's always a great time talking with JM and JC, and we're sure you all will have a good time listening as we break down a variety of political news stories over the last week.

February 8th, 2022

We have complained about his anti-science, anti-trans, and conspiratorial views in prior episodes, but Joe Rogan has only recently come under intense fire as a backlash for providing a platform for unhinged lunatics (including himself) to spread misinformation regarding COVID-19 and vaccinations. But has the intense pressure actually accomplished anything? Has it created any real and lasting change for the better? Or has it all been a waste of a lot of time and energy that could be better-spent elsewhere?

366 - Popes and (Tele)Scopes

February 1st, 2022

Taylor was out with a corneal abrasion, so Dan and Ryan talked about the fact that the nonagenarian former pontiff of the Catholic Church, Pope Benedict XVI, was recently caught in a lie about his attendance at a meeting to discuss child abuse allegations. He previously told investigators he didn't attend the meeting (presumably because he didn't want to admit he personally knew about sexual abuse allegations and then didn't do much of anything about them), but the investigative team has documents that show he was there. The Pope's former secretary finally admitted the Pope was there and that this was all "the result of an oversight in the editing of the [prior] statement" and "not done out of bad faith."

 

Uh… Catholicism itself is a bad faith.

 

The closing segment was all about the new and amazing James Webb Space Telescope and the incredible discoveries it should begin revealing before the end of this year.

He is also gay and has been having a lot of internal struggles trying to reconcile who he is with the faith he was indoctrinated into - a faith that requires him to never act on what it refers to as "the challenge of same-sex attraction."

 

We talk about David's recently posted video on Instagram in which he talks about his struggles with his faith, depression, and suicidal ideation.

We take a look back at what happened, the events leading up to it, the aftermath, and discuss the existential fear gripping the rational inhabitants of this nation.

Steve Cuno is an author, copywriter, widower, father, grandfather, skeptic, and "marketing know-it-all" who joined us to talk about his new book, Behind the Mormon Curtain: Selling Sex in America's Holy City. He spent years researching, conducting interviews, writing, and editing this book, and it shows.

 

What Steve initially envisioned as a collection of light-hearted and comedic stories turned into a much more interesting and nuanced examination of the sex work industry in Utah. He takes us behind the Zion curtain to reveal some of the tricks (pun fully intended) of the trade and teaches us all a thing or two about what it means to be able to take a compassionate and empathetic look at one of the oldest professions in the world.

358 - Foundations Made of Bullshit

November 23rd, 2021

Christian author, right-wing ideologue, protester puncher, and former anti-Trumper turned Trump ball-gargler, Eric Metaxas, recently penned an article for Fox News full of unsupported and self-defeating arguments against atheism wherein he attempted to argue that atheism is "the enemy of freedom." We pick apart his article and highlight some of the many bullshit views that are currently rattling around inside Metaxas' well-coiffed noggin.

357 - It‘s OK to Say F*ck

November 10th, 2021

You may have recently heard the phrase "Let’s go, Brandon." It is a new right-wing shibboleth that stems from an October NASCAR race at the Talladega Superspeedway in Alabama. Driver Brandon Brown won the race and was being interviewed by an NBC reporter. The crowd behind Brandon was chanting something that was initially difficult to understand, so the reporter suggested they were chanting "Let's go, Brandon" to cheer on Mr. Brown. It later became clear that the crowd was chanting "Fuck Joe Biden," and the phrase has since been taken up as a childish way for conservatives to say a naughty swear without actually saying a naughty swear. Yes, they're all twelve years old.

September 7th, 2021

Did you know that Prager U is not an actual university? If so, you're way ahead of loads of other people, but we're sure you'll still learn a lot more during this episode.

 

Prager U, standing for "Prager University" is the brainchild of conservative talk radio host Dennis Prager. Prager U presents five-minute videos on more than 300 topics - from the Israeli apartheid, to gun control, to socialism. Dennis Prager says he wants, "the best thinkers presenting their best ideas." Their goal: to "undo [the] damage" inflicted by an education system that teaches US students that their country is “a land of inequality and racism” and a place of which to be “ashamed.”

347 - The LDS Church is Fundamentally Broken

August 31st, 2021

There were two major developments within The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints this month that have exposed the conservative rot within. The first was an announcement made on the LDS Church's website titled, "First Presidency urges Latter-day Saints to wear masks, be vaccinated." This seemingly innocuous appeal from the church's leaders to get their membership to help stop the spread of a deadly pandemic sent many conservative members into a full meltdown, with many of them officially resigning from the church.
 
The second item of note seemed to come as a hopeful reassurance to the church's more conservative members to let them know the church wasn't moving to the left. Elder Jeffrey R. Holland of the church's Quorum of the Twelve Apostles and former President of Brigham Young University delivered a speech at the private, Mormon-owned school wherein he asserted that the university needed to stop being so friendly to the church's LGBTQ+ members and that he wanted to "hear a little more musket fire from this temple of learning" in defense of the church and its stance against same-sex marriage.

Ryan and Taylor are both military veterans who, like every member of America's military over the last two decades, served during the war in Afghanistan.

Suffice it to say they have more than a passing knowledge of the decades-long war the United States is now exiting.
 
Dan was dealing with some flooding issues at home and wasn't able to join Ryan and Taylor for this episode, but he'll be back next week.

344 - Fascism is Colonialism Turned Inwards

August 10th, 2021

Conservatives have switched from denying that the events of January 6, 2021, were an insurrection to blaming Nancy Pelosi for allowing it to happen.

342 - In-Studio with Natasha Helfer

July 27th, 2021

Natasha Helfer is a Certified Sex Therapist through the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors, and Therapists (AASECT); a Clinical Fellow through the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT); a Licensed Clinical Marriage and Family Therapist; and was, until recently, a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She was excommunicated from the Mormon church after treating her patients using science and evidence-based therapies which often come into conflict with the religious teachings of her former faith.

 

Natasha's story received national attention and has been featured by dozens of media outlets.

 

In addition to all of her experience and bona fides, Natasha is also an absolutely fantastic conversationalist, so we were delighted that she was able to join us for a lengthy in-studio interview.

 

We had a minor technical issue that forced us to make some changes to our editing process and caused the delay in getting this out, so you may notice that the overall sound of the show is a bit different than usual. Thankfully, we were able to identify the issue so it shouldn't be a problem in the future.

341 - Mormon Gods

July 16th, 2021

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the Mormon church), God's "perfect and restored" faith has a long history of revising its problematic doctrine in an effort to play catch-up and conform with a modern sense of morality and mainstream Christianity. But their latest attempt to rewrite the church's teachings and doctrines is beyond the pale.

339 - No, New Atheism Didn’t Merge with the Far Right

July 7th, 2021

Ordinarily, we're not the type of show to wade into the Atheist Internet Wars, but we felt it was important to interrupt our Christian Nationalism series to offer a modicum of support to Thomas Smith who has worked his ass off to be as affirming and supportive of "the left" as possible. He was recently attacked (unjustly so, in our humble opinions), so this episode is dedicated to shoring up support for the good works he has done.

338 - Christian Nationalism - Part V - The Bundy Standoffs

June 25th, 2021

Anti-masker, anti-lockdown, anti-vax, anti-choice, anti-intellectualism, anti-government (for chrissake!) right-wing lunatic Ammon Bundy recently announced his candidacy for Governor of Idaho. But before he was a wannabe politician, Bundy was a wannabe hero who thought it would be a good idea to engage federal officials in not one, but two armed standoffs. He should have been locked up for each of these offenses, but… well, you'll just have to listen to this episode to find out why this dangerous fuckwit is still allowed to roam our streets making life worse for all of us.

337 - Christian Nationalism - Part IV - Project Blitz

June 21st, 2021

We're moving into the modern era with the fourth installment in our series on Christian Nationalism. This episode centers around Project Blitz, the nefarious plot that was secretly launched in 2015 as a unified effort to normalize the passage of increasingly sectarian legislation.

June 15th, 2021

The third installment of our Christian Nationalism series draws a line from the Civil War time period to the modern-day and exposes the links between slavery and modern Christian Nationalist narratives and talking points.

335 - Christian Nationalism - Part II - The Founding Fathers

June 9th, 2021

The Founding Fathers are the subject of this second installment in our multi-episode coverage of Christian Nationalism. Heroic embellishments, tall tales, and outright lies have been promulgated about America's Founding Fathers since our country's inception. Plenty of "scholars" have created or repeated complete fabrications regarding the beliefs and religious practices of the framers of our constitution as part of a broader effort to promote the false notion that America is a Christian nation.

 

It's Pride Month, so we also talk about a recent familial dust-up regarding anti-LGBTQ bigotry during the opening segment of the show. Our Patreon supporters get an extended version of the opening segment by way of a cutting room floor segment.

334 - Christian Nationalism - Part I

June 1st, 2021

This is the first installment of a multi-episode series talking about the scourge that is Christian Nationalism. We start off by addressing some of the inaccurate history lessons we were taught in grade school. Suffice it to say in these notes that the story of America's Pilgrims isn't really all about Thanksgiving and getting along with the indigenous peoples of this land.
 
Also, Dan wants everybody to know that he skipped a family pool party to stay home and edit the show for you, dear listener. It was probably for the best anyway, because he's a soulless ginger who gets a burn if someone even mentions the word "sun" in a sentence.

333 - Half Evil

May 25th, 2021

With 333 episodes under our belt, we're halfway to being fully evil. 😈
 
We've said it many times over the years: everybody is weird about death, we're all just weird about it in our way. Tracey's maternal grandmother recently died, and everything surrounding her death and funeral drove home the fact that religion is not a uniting force; it is fundamentally divisive and corrosive to all types of relationships.

332 - Ch-ch-ch-ch-Cheney

May 18th, 2021

Liz Cheney has been removed from her congressional leadership post as the latest mile marker along the road of the Republican party's journey into authoritarian fascism. While discussing this latest bout of fuckery, one question kept getting repeated: has the Republican party ever really been for anything that would improve the lives of their fellow Americans? There are plenty of things we know the Republican party stands against, but what are they actually working toward? They no longer even have a party platform aside from supporting a one-term former president who lost the White House and both houses of Congress for their party.

331 - Cinco de Mayo

May 15th, 2021

The power social media companies hold and can wield to influence public opinion is frightening. What can be done to change things? We don't have any idea, but it's a fun subject to talk about anyway.
