Welcome to the 202nd episode of LoRD, the Legion of Reason Diversion! Kris and yours truly, the Supreme Irreverend Doctor Randy Tyson, are joined by Kevin Francis from our friends at the Left at the Valley podcast (http://www NULL.leftatthevalley NULL.com/). In this episode, we look at a variety of stories, including the decision by the premier of Saskatchewan, Brad Wall, to invoke the rarely-used constitutional sledgehammer known as the “notwithstanding” clause to overrule a judge’s decision on non-Catholic students attending Catholic schools; the oppression of atheists continues around the world, with one atheist in Russia facing over three years in prison for playing Pokemon Go in a Russian Orthodox church and another sentenced to death in Saudi Arabia for the crime of becoming a nonbeliever; the Catholic Church of Canada wants to consecrate this country to the Virgin Mary despite no one asking; in the Regressive Left Files we take a look at a modern-day witch hunt in academia; anthropologist Fuambi Ahamadu calls female genital mutilation “gender egalitarian surgery” on national tv; and finally, we cover more hijab nonsense.
In this episode we are joined by Cami Ryan (https://camiryan NULL.com/), a social scientist with Regulatory Policy and Scientific Affairs for Monsanto. We also tackle a number of items:
