It’s been over a month since our last episode. In that time our host, Ken, moved back to California where the Scientology headquarters is visible from his neighbourhood. Jason went on vacation to Iceland, where the population is one of the least theistic in the world and yet many still believe in elves. Bob stayed in Virginia but he went and saw Richard Dawkinsspeak earlier this month. [singlepic id=1600 w=320 h=240 float=right]
This week we get back into the swing of things and deal with the irony of a tweet sent out about Steve Jobs by the Westboro Baptist Church. The church planned to protest Mr. Jobs’ funeral and tweeted about it from their iPhone. We touch on the first Catholic bishop who has been charged with covering up sexual abuse.
We spend a lot of time discussing the New Apostolic Reformation, C. Peter Wagner and his “school.” We discuss the idea of sending one of us to this school to get a degree in prophesy. Wagner’s school is interesting, not only in the fact that the whole thing is a hoax but, in that auditing courses cost more than actually taking them. In fact, the “school” website says this about their accreditation: “WLI desires to remain unhindered from traditional higher-level educational format requirements and is not an accredited institution. WLI offers three diploma tracks: Bachelor, Master, and Doctor of Practical Ministry. Diplomas do not certify levels of attainment, but rather accumulation of training units.”
