This episode we start out with some Twitter love that was thrown our way, which is always welcome. We then mention that Joe was on Zachrilege Cast, on which they talked mostly about beer and sports. Seethin’ then throws out a couple of stories for discussion, including the reappearance of Baphomet and Hanuman, in Arkansas, of all places; a story about Joel Osteen and the money robbed from his church, which Seethin’ stupidly forgot to check the date on; and then a pastor on Fox News saying that Jesus would sure as shit send those dirty immigrants back where they came from. We then throw out a little bonus : an excerpt of Chris, Joe, and Tucker’s conversation from Cafe Coco after seeing Neil Carter speak in Nashville. Out of about an hour of material, only about ten minutes of it was usable, and even that was drunken idiocy at low audio quality. It is still pretty funny, regardless.
We then go on to the interview, which this week is with BJ Saylor. He is an ex-Christian who was brought up in the Pentecostal tradition and was exposed to extreme indoctrination during his attendance at a church-run school, as well as his born-again parents. He tells of the painful journey of an intelligent, perceptive boy into manhood, who has to navigate the pitfalls of hypocrisy and hatred associated with extreme Evangelical Christianity. He has emerged on the other side as a freethinker and an atheist, but not without scars he may never heal from. BJ, however, does offer words of hope at the end to encourage those in similar situations. This is one of the more serious interviews, but also one of the more fulfilling and informative.
