TGA Podcast: Episode 27

This week, Ryan and I give our review of Bill Maher’s new movie, Religulous. After receiving enough hearty suggestions, we had no choice but to head over to the theater to see what all the fuss was about. Also, we discuss my idea for a new t-shirt slogan, and ask you, the listeners, to give us your input.

    Grow some balls Ryan… 1 beer? 1beer won’t even get me mildly buzzed.

    I’m an atheist/antitheist but have spent a lot of time studying religion in college. Most of the religious people I know refuse to read or watch anything that delves into the history of the Bible. They want to stay ignorent and just “read” the Bible, when they really just listen to what others say to them.

    lame shirt but i think jake is right until the child turns into an adult.

    I think “Jesus Couldn’t Tap” would be better and an MMA shirt as well.

    I think Ryan has a point in regards to religious background. I’m a pretty recent convert to atheism and I know I still catch myself thinking ‘we’ sometimes in relation to lutherans. Just because you’re not something anymore doesn’t mean it’s just…erased from your history. I wouldn’t say I am lutheran, but I would say that I was.

    Umm slight correction, there is mention of homosexuality in the New Testament, “Their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural, and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in their own persons the due penalty for their error.” Romans 1:26-28 Revised Standard Version

    I like “in your faith” as a slogan as long as the word faith was in a different size, font, or colour, or something.

    I can’t believe this is the first episode I’ve checked out, since I’m a Jackal and have been an Atheist since I was 12. I just kept forgetting to check it out after the Low Blow plugs.

    I agree with your opinion on Maher’s movie: way too much on Islam, which is like shooting fish in a barrell. Plus it’s a meaningless religion in America compared to Christianity, so that should have gotten the bulk of his ire.

    I’m with Jake on the “were you religious as a child?” debate. You didn’t honestly believe the religion, you just did because your parents told you to and forced you into Sunday School. I do not consider myself ever a Christian, since I stopped attending church with my mom at 12. I started reading Nietzsche and Anton Lavey books, which is probably weird for a kid but I was also reading Hemmingway books when I was 7.

    And I don’t like “In Yo’ Faith”. It’s kinda cheesy (no offense).

    I can see both sides of the debate about a person’s religious background. I agree with Heather (above) – if Ryan had said, “I was presbyterian – no problem. But, I cannot deny that I am who I am today because of my religious upbringing. Without religion what would there be to rebel against?
