Later on in the podcast, Da Prez Kris and I, your Supremely Irreverend Doctor Randy Tyson, discuss the minor revolution that happened here in Alberta with the complete self-annihilation of a party that ruled over this province for 44 years; Scientologists travel to Nepal (http://www NULL.globalpost NULL.com/article/6550051/2015/05/15/scientologists-are-nepal-trying-heal-trauma-victims) to heal earthquake victims via “ooga-booga”; and Catholic authority yet again demonstrates its harmful nature, this time in the Catholic schools forcing a transgender student (http://www NULL.edmontonjournal NULL.com/Catholic+trustee+could+face+sanctions+speaking+against+board+decision+transgendered+student/11056723/story NULL.html) who identifies as a girl use the boys washroom. But first we talk on recent personal events, including Kris’ trip to the American Humanist Association conference and my prostate adventures, and on a more serious note yet another blogger in Bangladesh has been murdered (http://www NULL.aljazeera NULL.com/news/2015/05/150512043430832 NULL.html) by a mob for exercising his free speech (supposedly constitutionally protected).
The US Food And Drug Agency is re-evaluating the practice (http://www NULL.washingtonpost NULL.com/national/health-science/for-first-time-in-decades-fda-to-revisit-how-it-regulates-homeopathic-products/2015/04/18/2753315c-e207-11e4-81ea-0649268f729e_story NULL.html) of allowing homeopathic remedies to bypass risk/efficacy analyses before being sold to unsuspecting customers. From there we move on to Vancouver, where Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on an official visit to Canada claims Hinduism isn’t a religion but a way of life (http://www NULL.ndtv NULL.com/india-news/hinduism-not-a-religion-but-a-way-of-life-pm-narendra-modi-755705?site=full). And then it’s on to Rome where Pope Frank finally notices that women have brains (http://time NULL.com/3822482/pope-francis-women-church-society/), but no gay French ambassadors allowed (http://www NULL.thenewcivilrightsmovement NULL.com/uncucumbered/france_refuses_to_rescind_the_nomination_of_gay_ambassador_to_the_vatican). Australia leads the fight against anti-vaxxers yet again by tightening regulations surrounding parental objections to vaccination. No-vaccy, no money (http://www NULL.pbs NULL.org/newshour/rundown/australia-dont-vaccinate-kids-well-cut-benefits/?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=pbsofficial&utm_campaign=newshour), says the Aussie government.
