    I’d like to ask theists the same question. Personally, religion didn’t give me a lot of joy, not even entertainment really. And the prayers didn’t mean much either, they boiled down to essentially “god, do this, god do that” and nothing would happen. Hands up anybody who said the pater noster and god showed up and gave them their daily bread.

    Just from listening to Beth’s Godless Bitches podcast, you’d think she would say that she gets a thrill out of having abortions, and how every woman should get at least one abortion under her belt as part of a fulfilled life.

    Beth shows why Strict Father conservatives have focused on women’s sexual freedom as a bad thing for society.

  • No

    Methinks you have an issue with the fact that the GB podcast tends to cover one of the central issues to being an adult woman in American society. I listen to it as well and do not have that impression. Are you saying women shouldn’t have sexual freedom?

    Beth shows why “strict father” conservatives focused on women’s sexual freedom is a bad thing for society.

  • Darrell Ross

    I looked up “strict father conservative” and it does not imply anything about women’s sexual freedom. Perhaps if you adjust it to say “strict father religious zealot”?

    Also, Beth doesn’t talk about abortion in every podcast. I take it you listened to the couple where it is a topic and are drawing your conclusions based on those? You draw strange conclusions regardless.
