    The Non-Prophets, Episode 20.24 airing Sunday, June 13th featuring Jena Miyu, Laura Magee, Martin Robert and Guest Host Ragabash Dabbler. What colors are you wearing this month? Are they colors that represent your helpfulness towards providing meals to sex workers? Do you feel your colors have brightened or changed since discovering your more sensual side since you’ve been at home for the past year? Or do your colors represent the pride you feel seeing the progressive changes most media, TV shows, and toys are making in an effort to promote inclusion. On this Sunday show, the hosts discuss and celebrate Pride Month. Because every fight deserves an “Ally.”

    Archbishop turns a blind eye to abuse of children in the church, yet gives a personal apology...from God? Also, perhaps faith leaders should stop being in charge of taking care of children, especially those coming out of the Bethany Church in Louisiana. The dark side of Mother Teresa’s Missionaries of Charity order is revealed through a new podcast “The Turning: The Sisters Who Left.” The Mormon cult sets their bets in the stock trade by purchasing large shares in GameStop and Tesla.

    Alright my fellow homosapians, we talked about “Christian Tested. Lord Approved“ A Viral ‘Vaccinated by the Lord’ Card?” We explored: SHIT APOLOGIST’S SAY “‘What’s Your Favorite Bible Verse? That Backfired” We hit on a STRANGE BUT TRUE “Jesus Between the Cushions,“ or as I like to call it, Jesus’ murder weapon was hidden in furniture for every home has ‘a blessing of some kind.’ And finally we dived into some “Christian Counselling on Same-sex Attraction,” which was less counseling and more finger wagging at people who feel.

    Bertrand Russell, Jim Bakker, Gov. Abbott and teaching the “good” of slavery.



    The Non-Prophets, Episode 20.20 airing Sunday, May 16th at 3PM CST featuring Malty, Jena Miyu, Laura Magee and Guest Host Katie Stewart, Associate Producer of the ACA.

    This week’s episode of The Non-Prophets welcomes Katie Stewart as the hosts cover recent news out of the state of Louisiana where State Representative Raymond E. Garofalo brings forth a bill attempting to enforce teachers to not discuss “divisive concepts” and instead pushing for them to emphasize “the good of slavery.” What?! Also, we give a mention to the FFRF for winning a recent court battle over a Nativity scene, and it looks like Jim Bakker was looking to return back to prison over a COVID cure scam. Lastly, we round out the episode with a “Looking Back” segment on the work of Bertrand Russell.

SerTyrion ,

Great stuff...

...but I miss the older hosts. With only Denis left it’s not as good. Denis is great, the replacements....

kenandsilvia ,

Great conversation

This is my first time listening to the Non Prophets and I really enjoyed it. I especially liked the conversational style. Sometimes I feel isolated as an atheist and am always concerned about expressing my views in public. So listening to like minded non believers is very refreshing.

Michael Spausey ,

Very interesting

I love and relisten to this podcast because there's frequent conversation about how atheist, skepticism, and rationalism interact with real life issues. The normal hosts are also very funny.
