Seriously, sorry about the lumps and bumps, the freshmen-gremlins above the studio were restless…

Now, grab a beer and help us test the god hypothesis — because, while Egyptian Goddess Bast hasn’t struck us down yet, we are trying her patience!
Mama Gay’s Good Advice
When faced with a horrible Monday, remember: left foot, right foot, repeat as needed. It’s like lather, rinse, repeat…but all Zen and shit. And every Friday, remember to wish your coworkers a Happy POETS day. Just don’t tell them it means Piss On Everything Tomorrow’s Saturday.
This Saturday is Yom Kippur. It is also called Day of Atonement and is the day when Jews ask for forgiveness and look to the future. It is the holiest day of the year in the Jewish calendar. I’m truly sorry Shea isn’t here to sputter some Hebrew.

This Week’s Show
- Married church minister ‘ran bottom spanking cult’
- MUN prof refuses to wear device for hearing disabled student, cites religious reasons
- ‘Gay’ Doritos Prompt Freak-Out
This week we’re taking a slightly different route. Think of this as a ‘Very Special Episode of Waiting 4 Wrath” but instead of 80’s cartoon characters telling you to beware of drugs, you have Big Gay Jim and myself discussing a couple of prepared topics. So tonight, Jim and I don’t have a specific news story to discuss, but instead, we’re bringing attention to certain issues that are important to us.
A brief window into their thoughts on the ladies. Women’s roles in the major religions:
- Islam/Koran “Men are above all the women because Allah has given one part a superiority over the other.”
- Confucius: “One hundred girls are not worth as much as one boy.”
- Hinduism: “A girl must be under the care of her father … in youth under the care of the husband and in old age under the care of her sons. But she should never be free and independent.” (Manu V. 148)
- Bible (Paul in a letter to the Ephesians): “The women shall be servant to the men who are their masters.”
- Mormonism: The Mormon position on women has changed little since the early 1800’s, when the official view was that “woman’s primary place is in the home, where she is to rear children and abide by the righteous counsel of her husband”. Her afterlife role is being perpetually pregnant to populate their husbands planet and share him with other ‘wives’.
- St. Gregory of Nazianzum: “Woman – a foe to friendship, an inescapable punishment, a necessary evil.” “Among save beasts, none is found so harmful as woman.”
A good resource on violence against women (religious origins or not) is vawnet.org. The site also has a breakdown on different prominent religions sects and some of the more prevalent destructive aspects of their teachings: bit.ly/1NWldFN
