Podcast #6: Phil Robertson is the Worst

This week, Edwin, Rick and RobRoy talk about the latest Duck Dynasty scandal, as Phil Robertson says some of the worst comments ever uttered by an american extremist. Tune in.


Phil Robertson is a Rapist

This links to a speech by Phil Robertson of Duck Dynasty fame that is the most offensive thing I have ever heard in my life.  In it, he engages in a fantasy rape and murder of a family of atheists, including the rape, it seems, of little girls.

Phil: Wanna be rapist and murder.  Also a good duck hunter.
Phil: Wanna be rapist and murder. Also a good duck hunter.

This leads me to only one conclusion.  Phil’s Christian faith is the only thing stopping him from being an enthusiastic rapist and serial killer.  Therefore, I am very glad this unapologetic rapist stays within his religious tradition or who knows what he is capable of doing.

This kind of language and outright villainy has no place in a polite society.  We can disagree about issues, be they religion or political, without a rhetorical rape and murder of people with whom you disagree.

In the same series of remarks, he also compares all liberals to Satan, equating modern progressives with Hitler.  He apparently is unaware that whoever references Hitler first, loses.

This vile filth is nothing short of breathtaking.  The fact that Phil still has an audience and “fans” proves that god can’t possibly exist.


Podcast #5: On Useless Sports and Defending the DMV

On this week’s podcast, Edwin, RobRoy and Rich discuss the violence and uselessness of football and the problems inherent in the Department of Motor Vehicles.  Although the subjects seem totally unrelated, they blend together in a fun, thoughtful thirty minutes.

Podcast #4: Fox News: Manufactured Outrage and Outright Horseshit

On this week’s podcast, Edwin, Rick and RobRoy discuss the inexplicable popularity of Fox News and the difference between news and infotainment.  Also, they trio discuss the undercurrent of outrage present in the online libertarian community.

Podcast #3: Keep Religion Out of Public Schools – Podcast

This week’s podcast is a discussion of a recent editorial written by Edwin and published in the Reno Gazette Journal.  The piece dissects a particularly awful law being considered in the Nevada legislature that would privilege religion in public schools:


Podcast 1: Discussion of “atheist” shooting of three Muslims in NC

On this week’s podcast, Edwin, Rick and RobRoy discuss the atheist shooting of three Muslims.  What does this troubling example have to say about the state of the secular community?

My Robes of Shame

It’s a secret, a deep-held shame that I hide from myself as much as from other people.  It often takes refuge between the rant-laced lines of Armchair Blasphemy.  But I can no longer conceal it or wave it away—I must at last face it and admit to you the reader my deepest shame:  I harbor deep jealousy of religious clothing, most especially robes.

It has nothing to do with belief or unbelief; it’s just about comfort.  I am what is often known in American parlance as a “fat slob.”  I can’t buy shit off the rack, because even though I am nearly six feet tall, I have only a thirty-inch inseam, and I’m shaped like a stunted pear.
