This week I learned that oranges are orange in color, but apples are not apple in color…

Jim’s good gay news

Channing Tatum will play a mer-man in a remake of Splash. Mmm…muscley goodness, and male objectification. One of many reasons to support gender equality!

But before we get to all that, let’s have a beer!

New Patron, the fantastically named, Deadeye Nick. Thank you for your support of our weekly ramblings.

Yet another new patron, Kevin, I’m betting not Sorbo though. Thank you too for your generosity.

We want to thank all the new listeners from Atheism 101, we hope you get a laugh out of the show!

  • The machine purchased from a South Korean company (I wish I’d thought of it) should arrive in Uganda in September

  • Simon Lokodo, Uganda’s minister of ethics, said, “detect, control, and scrutinize porn on mobile handsets and other electronic devices.”

  • Uganda has also passed an anti-homosexuality law that was annulled in 2014.

  • Pretty rich purchase considering that the country had no working radiotherapy machines since the only one broke down in April

Swedish Church To Use Drones To Drop Thousands Of Bibles In Isis-Controlled Iraq

bit.ly/2bjrvRk

  • The Livets Ord (Word of Life) church in Uppsala in the north of Sweden has said it will use drones flying at high altitude to release thousands of small, electronic Bibles into Iraq.

  • The tiny books apparently don’t need electricity to operate

  • Livets Ord is the leading charismatic church in Sweden, and seen as in line with the Pentecostal movement in the US.

  • We here at Waiting 4 Wrath are absolutely confident that this unrequested “literature” will be welcomed by the Iraqi people who will very nearly instantly realize that they’ve been worshipping their god the wrong way and will immediately repent and take Jesus Christ as their personal lord and savior.

bit.ly/2bjsoJm

  • Missouri has a religious freedom act which was cited in the lawsuit, which was quickly thrown out in the state.

  • New federal suit filed stating that rather than a state RFRA issue, it’s a federal constitutional rights issue

  • Federal lawsuit stuck for a year, but now a judge tossed it out since the plaintiff no longer has standing since … stay with me here… she’s no longer pregnant.

Shea’s Story

Women suck at being the boss and I can prove it because Bible and arm wrasslin’

bit.ly/2aP6TDP

Its been a little while since we have talked about my good friend Pastor Steven Anderson, the pastor from Tempe, Arizona who wants to kill all homosexuals and kill Obama. This week he is at it again, but this time were going after the women folk…

I get an email every day calling me “misogynistic.” What a stupid word. This is, like, a new word. I never heard that when I was a kid. I didn’t hear that. Did you hear that growing up?…

Aaron’s Story

Anti-gay Republican mayor of Stockton CA arrested for recording underage male teens playing strip poker in his bedroom. Previously he held anti-gay rallies at megachurches and held a ceremony to give God the key to his city. – bit.ly/2bjqOYf


  • GOP Stockton Mayor Anthony Silva, who has held official town hall meetings at an anti-gay megachurch and who ceremoniously gave the key to the city to God — We covered that story in Episode 55’s headline section.

  • arrested on multiple charges including secretly recording a male teenager playing a game of strip poker in his bedroom at a summer camp.

  • Silva, 41, was charged with eavesdropping or recording confidential communications, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, providing alcohol to a minor and cruelty to a child by endangering health

    • Silva has been under investigation for alleged sexual misconduct multiple times, even before he was sworn in as mayor in 2013. When he was a high school water polo coach in 2004, Silva was accused of secretly taping teens in the bathroom of his apartment. Charges were never filed.

    • Authorities also investigated Silva in 2011 for an alleged rape attempt on a 19-year-old woman when he was president of the Boys and Girls club. In this case, prosecutors did not press charges due to lack of evidence.

    • Friday we learned that a gun used in a drive-by shooting that killed a 13-year-old boy in Stockton was registered to the city’s mayor, Anthony Silva.

  • In general, he’s a prick

bit.ly/2aP6qBt

  • Rev. Victor Jagerstatter, who was charged Monday with assaulting the passed out airman, was released on his own recognizance

  • The judge cited the large crowd of supporters, who were praying aloud and wearing t-shirts that read “I stand with Fr. Victor.”

  • Magistrate Judge David Epis said those supporters would ensure Jagerstatter showed up for his next court date.

  • The victim alleged he went to a party on July 8 and returned home at 3 a.m. He was fully clothed when he went to bed, but awoke suddenly partially exposed, with Jagerstatter kneeling beside him.

  • “The victim screamed and Victor Franz Jagerstatter asked him if he wanted breakfast,” reads the affidavit

Jim’s Rainbow Rant 

bit.ly/2aP6WQ4

  • Everyone is just mad about Frankie…

    • SO progressive

    • Gay friendly/est

    • Bullshit!

  • Pope Francis has lamented that children are being taught at school that gender can be a choice

    • Incorrect! Taught gender is not simple, and that some people need help for their body to match their gender (which is much more than “the plumbing”)

  • Private meeting with Polish bishops – transcript released this week

  • “We are living a moment of annihilation of man as image of God.”

  • He added that his predecessor, Benedict XVI, had labelled current times “the epoch of sin against God the Creator”

    • Anytime you have to quote Benny Naz-inger…

  • Without specifying, he blamed this on textbooks supplied by “persons and institutions who donate money”

    • Um, let’s talk about textbooks in the US. Texas won’t let them print trans-positive/affirming anything

  • The pope blamed what he called “ideological colonizing” backed by “very influential countries”, which he did not identify.

    • I can name that country in 3 vague fear baitings…

  • Speaking with Pope Benedict, who is well, and has a clear mind, he was telling me: ‘Holiness, this is the epoch of sin against God the Creator, He’s intelligent! God created man and woman, God created the world this way, this way, this way, and we are doing the opposite.’”

    • Has Ratzy EVER had a clear mind? Clear vs Evil/hateful

    • So if gawd doesn’t make mistakes, and “he” made gender variant folks…

    • Thousands of years of human history…

  • Frankie ended: We must think about what Pope Benedict said – ‘It’s the epoch of sin against God the Creator.’

    • Translation (pun intended): the epoch where people question us and think for themselves

  • Do I need to explain gender? Watch the PB & J video
