SFR 352: Move Over Eddie Murphy

–Bobby spent nearly 2 weeks in Florida, and half of it he was sick, or fighting off the possibility of flesh-eating bacteria. Fun in the sun!
–It’s hard for even us to believe, but this is our 7th anniversary of Strange Frequencies Radio.  We offer a few quick remembrances as we take the step toward Year Eight.
–Paris was attacked last week in a coordinated effort that left at least 130 people dead, and many more injured. Who did this? Why? We’ll read the statement from ISIS themselves, and talk about the meme that this “had nothing to do with Islam.”
–What our current and former Muslims saying? We point our listeners to some unique and interesting voices speaking out in the aftermath of this horrific event.
SFR_Eye–Secretary of State John Kerry makes a dumb remark, saying that the earlier attacks on Charlie Hebdo had a “rationale,” while this attack was “indiscriminate.”
–We lighten the mood so Bobby can talk about meeting and getting his picture taken with Newt Gingrich while in Florida.
–Syrian refugees in the United States are being met with suspicion and, yes, racism, from a variety of citizens, legislators, and state governors. We talk about why we are proud to share our community with several already, and why there is little cause for concern.
–Satanists in Minneapolis offer to escort Muslims to the grocery store, or deliver groceries to them, if they fear being attacked. How un-Christian of them!
–Hacker group Anonymous has declared war on ISIS. Their heart may be in the right place, but Jason doubts they’ll do much to really stop them and, in fact, may even hinder efforts at monitoring them. Besides, didn’t Anonymous already go after ISIS in the wake of the Charlie Hebdo attacks? Is this just history repeating itself?
–Anonymous declared war on the KKK again recently, too, and aside from defacing their website, messing with their Twitter accounts, and releasing the names of a bunch of morons who are proud of their racism anyway, what was the point?
–Bobby talks about Christian apologist/philosopher William Lane Craig’s contention that Christianity has more credibility than other religions because its followers have been willing to die for their beliefs throughout history. Would he make the same claim for an Islamist suicide bomber?
–It’s been a show focused about terrorism and death. Can we have a little fun now? Preferably at Ben Carson’s expense? Thanks.
