Later on in this episode we get to some juicy stories, including a CBC report which outlines how the Alberta government has been funding unproven experimental health programs on the elderly and homeless; Ayaan Hirsi Ali cancels a visit to the Land Down Under because of threats on her person from Islamists; Conrad Black goes after atheism and predictably fails with his usual condescension; and apparently being a Black Lives Matter zealot can get you anything, even an entry into the Ivy League.
But before we get to those items, Dorian Banman, a student at the University of Alberta in Edmonton and known on YouTube as Former Reformer King, is suing the educational institution and we’re going to let him tell his story as to why.

In this episode: CNN airs a documentary about us atheists (http://edition NULL.cnn NULL.com/videos/tv/2015/03/17/exp-cnn-creative-marketing-atheists-inside-the-world-of-non-believers NULL.cnn), and for once we aren’t represented as the evil monsters we really are; convicted fraudster and professional narcissist Conrad Black (http://news NULL.nationalpost NULL.com/full-comment/conrad-black-the-shabby-shallow-world-of-the-militant-atheist) and Phil Robertson (http://www NULL.huffingtonpost NULL.ca/2015/03/24/phil-robertson-duck-dynasty-hate-speech_n_6934164 NULL.html) think so! Angus Reid (http://angusreid NULL.org/faith-in-canada/) has released the results of an interesting poll looking at the demographics of belief in Canada; Indiana Governor Mike Pence signs a law (http://www NULL.cnn NULL.com/2015/03/25/politics/mike-pence-religious-freedom-bill-gay-rights/index NULL.html?ts_pid=2) which with its broad wording could lead to discrimination in that state. Did I say could? George Takei and others say “would”; and finally, an unnamed priest says a woman raped and murdered would still be alive (http://www NULL.msn NULL.com/en-ca/news/other/priest-in-australia-says-murdered-woman-would-still-be-alive-if-she-had-been-more-faith-filled/ar-AAaaJpA) if she had stayed at home and been more “faith filled”.
