SFR 338: Don’t Forget Your Ointments!

–We open with a discussion about the mass shooting in Chattanooga that has currently left 5 dead. Bobby gets into how people he knows use topics like this to validate their anti-Muslim views, while Jason admits he is just sick and disheartened over yet another mass shooting.
–We play “Guess the Religion!” using a 2006 case of a Saudi woman being gang raped, then being sentenced to 200 lashes and 6 months in jail for a violation of sharia law as punishment. There are disputing accounts of whether this woman had been pardoned, or whether the case had new developments. Either way, our opinion is that stories like this are a regular news item in Saudi Arabia, and are worth talking about whether new or old.
SFR_Eye–Speaking of news items we missed, we update the Jared Fogle story to discuss whether him allegedly telling someone that “middle-school girls are hot” warrants people assuming he trafficks in child porn.
–A Loch Ness Monster hunter, who has spent 24 years chasing the elusive beast, has recently decided what people are seeing is probably just an enormous catfish. While we disagree with that, and offer what we think are more likely explanations, we do think it is nice he is currently looking for a more reasonable hypothesis.
–Bobby gets physically uncomfortable when humiliated over his past ghost hunting beliefs. Being his best friend, Jason is delighted to read from an old article Bobby wrote that talks about the tools you need to be a great paranormal investigator.
–We end with a quick segment of “Bobby’s Bible Study,” in which he talks about how and why Christians he knows deny the reality of evolution when it comes to humans. Jason wonders how you can even have a productive conversation with someone who admits that  when facts contradict their belief, they choose to willfully ignore the facts.
–Goodnight Citizens of Earth!
