Episode 80: Bob’s Gone Missing!
The boys are back! Well, two of us at least, and Matthew Brake joins us to complete the trio paradigm that we have come to cultivate on this show. With that said, if anyone sees Bob Price in Skyrim, please let him know to come back.
We kick off this week by talking about contraceptives and religion. We ask the question, does a religiously founded organization have the right to deny coverage or access to contraceptives? Matt and I delve into the slippery-slope of allowing religious organizations to pick and choose what medical procedures and treatments they deem acceptable. If Catholics can opt to not cover contraceptives, then can Christian Scientists opt to not cover any medical treatments at all?
Watch us discuss the sacred and secular in public spaces, the fall of the Roman empire with regard to socially acceptable behaviors and a now-former adjunct professor who was fired for trying to understand the mindset and worldview of atheists.
