The Non-Prophets 20.16 2021-04-14 Martin Robert, Neil the 604 Atheist, Laura Magee, PhoenixOn this week’s episode of the Non-Prophets, we discuss some great topics. Phoenix opens up the floor with some history about Madalyn Murray O’Hair, the life and times of one of the most prominent atheists in America. Next, Laura and Martin discuss how religiosity influences a greater wage gap, as opposed to more secular workforces which tend to have a smaller gap. After that, our hosts go over the ins and outs of Scientology’s monetary habits, and how they may be losing their financial foothold as a non-profit. Our fourth article is about the Freedom From Religion Foundation and how they dropped a recent lawsuit after the state they were suing accommodated the FfRF’s request...or did they? Alabama sure is a tricky one. Lastly, we get into the issue of censorship in Italy and how the grasp of religiosity has been removed from their movie industry.Looking Back...https://freethoughtalmanac.wordpress.com/2011/04/13/april-13-madalyn-murray-ohair/Additional Articleshttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Madalyn_Murray_O%27Hairhttps://www.britannica.com/topic/School-District-of-Abington-Township-v-Schempp#ref1203585https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abington_School_District_v._Schempphttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Atheistshttps://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLCA7B39A80C71F248https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yflQd2jyp7Yhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FPrsitqV04ghttps://katv.com/news/local/creationism-bill-passed-in-house-headed-to-senateSecond Article: https://www.psypost.org/2021/04/religion-is-a-driving-force-behinHid-the-gender-wage-gap-study-finds-60278https://www.psypost.org/2019/11/new-psychology-research-indicates-that-subtle-exposure-to-religious-words-can-increase-benevolent-sexism-54956https://journals.aom.org/doi/abs/10.5465/amj.2019.1254https://journals.aom.org/doi/10.5465/amj.2019.1254.summaryhttps://www.jstor.org/stable/43496468?seq=3#metadata_info_tab_contentshttps://www.jstor.org/stable/26303306?Search=yes&resultItemClick=true&searchText=religion+and+wage+gap&searchUri=%2Faction%2FdoBasicSearch%3FQuery%3Dreligion%2Band%2Bwage%2Bgap&ab_segments=0%2Fbasic_search_gsv2%2Fcontrol&refreqid=fastly-default%3A4cfb74c259f6801fb8e0ae28956295fa&seq=53#metadata_info_tab_contentsThird Article: https://www.smh.com.au/national/push-for-investigation-into-scientology-s-charity-status-20210401-p57fsj.htmlhttps://www.ualberta.ca/folio/2018/01/once-thriving-church-of-scientology-faces-extinction-says-cult-tracker.htmlhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tax_status_of_Scientology_in_the_United_Stateshttps://www.theage.com.au/national/scientology-shifts-millions-to-safe-haven-australia-and-books-multi-million-dollar-profits-20210325-p57e18.htmlhttps://www.smh.com.au/national/scientology-is-shrinking-fast-and-getting-richer-how-is-this-possible-20210326-p57ea3.htmlhttps://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9019027/Church-Scientology-received-30-PPP-loans-worth-4-million.htmlFourth Article: https://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/apr/06/italy-ends-censorship-of-films-on-moral-and-religious-groundshttps://www.al.com/news/2020/10/freedom-from-religion-group-sues-alabama-over-so-help-me-god-voter-oath.htmlhttps://ffrf.org/news/action/item/38707-take-action-oppose-religious-takeover-of-public-schools-in-arkansashttps://www.arkleg.state.ar.us/Bills/Detail?ddBienniumSession=2021%2F2021R&measureno=HB1701https://www.arkleg.state.ar.us/Bills/FTPDocument?path=%2FBills%2F2021R%2FPublic%2FSB662.pdfEnding on a High Note: https://www.al.com/news/2021/04/freedom-from-religion-foundation-drops-lawsuit-after-alabama-amends-so-help-me-god-voter-oath.htmlhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Propaganda_and_censorship_in_Italy_during_the_First_World_Warhttps://encyclopedia.1914-1918-online.net/article/pressjournalism_italyhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Censorship_in_Italy

The Non-Prophets episode 20.09 airing on February 28, 2021 was hosted by Martin, P*ck and guest host Jenna Belk. We aim to discuss all of these topics with an open mind and to bring a skeptical and humanist perspective to the news of the day. We discuss the passing of conservative radio hate-spewer, Rush Limbaugh. We also talk about the crippling winter storm that wiped out the Texas power grid and public water system. We touch on the issue of school vouchers and discuss what they are and how they work. And lastly, for our looking back segment, we look at Pussy Riot and how they were arrested about 9 years ago for protesting in a church.
