In this 168th edition (June 20, 2016) Kris, Feisty Twyla and yours truly, the Supreme Irreverend Doctor Randy, welcome our special guests, YouTube sensations Logicked (https://www NULL.youtube NULL.com/user/logicked) and Isetheoriginal (https://www NULL.youtube NULL.com/watch?v=sxrEA1M_kQs)!
In this, the 167th episode we introduce a new segment covering Arts and Entertainment, wherein we learn that Mel Gibson has a sequel to his last snuff film “The Passion of the Christ” is in the works, and the probable plot of God’s Not Dead 3 is unfolding as its producers are being sued for copyright infringement of another Christian screenplay. Whatever happened to turning the other cheek? In Ottawa, the Senate is looking at right-to-die legislation Bill C-14 and does not like what it sees; Calgarian Catholic health care providers Covenant Health and Covenant Care refuse to abide by the Supreme Court decision over assisted dying and announce they will violate patient rights by not granting requests no matter what and Pope Frank weighs in on the debate from his cheap seat in Rome. Yours truly made his thoughts known in a tweet that I am sure shook the halls of the Vatican. As well, there are a couple of late stories to relate. Federal NDP MP Linda Duncan tabled a bill requiring labeling of GMO foods and O Canada! has been changed yet again, this time make it gender neutral. But first the elephant in the room, the Orlando shooting that happened early Sunday morning.
Welcome to the Legion of Reason Diversion, podcasting a critical eye on a sometimes less than critical world! In this, the 166th edition we see the greatest scientific minds in Canada tasked with answering one of the great questions of our time: Is broom technology destroying the game of curling? Who says blue-sky research isn’t useful? Catholic constitutional lawyers say the darnedest things! They’re so cute! And from the Regressive Left Files we have not one, but TWO portfolio folders. In the first we find Milo Yiannopoulos yet again at the center of controversy, this time at DePaul University in Chicago where Black Lives Matter protesters disrupt his talk as an invited speaker. The second contains the results of a recent poll on how students think speech that offends them should be dealt with. But before we get to those titillating topics, it’s convention season and we have to talk about Imagine No Religion in Vancouver last weekend and the American Humanist Association’s meeting in Chicago.
