Evaluating Evidence: Deconstructing the Trump Dossier – Part 1

Minisode

Posted February 19th, 2017

What is the difference between “fake news” and “real news?”  What is the impact of “alternative facts?”  Is there really anything to this buzzfeed-leaked Dossier about Trump’s alleged connections with Russia?  What is believable?  What is not believable?  Scott takes religion out from under the microscope and replaces it with politics in this introduction to a new smackdown series for Infants on Thrones.  More to come.

Girls Gone Thrones

Panel Discussion

Posted February 12th, 2017

In this femisode, Heather, her sister Jennifer, Jennifer’s friend Crys and Crys’s friend Charlie get together to form the largest women’s Infants on Thrones panel in the world–presided over and mansplained by priesthood holder Brother Jake.

First they smack up Jennifer’s Reddit diatribe against the much-shared facebook post inviting Women’s March attendees to join “the oldest and largest women’s organization in the world’ the LDS Reliesosidy: Relief Society is NOT a Women’s Group! 

Then they smack down a Mormon Women Stand article written by a women who marches around her privileged domestic palace shaming other women who aren’t content to march like she does.

In their spare time they talk about Crys and Charlie’s experiences at the Women’s March and what girls would do if they could hold an activity in the church without a priesthood holder present.

Disciples After Dark: Aunt Wendy and the Worldly Sex

Posted January 27th, 2017

What happens when parody meets smackdown?  This.

Matt and Kristin and Glenn (and a special guest or two) take some time to delicately mock and smackdown the Jan 8 2017 World Wide Devotional for Young Adults.  Because the devil wants to ruin you all with empty lust-filled worldly sex (but thinking that everyone else in the entire world is being deceived by Satan and you and your fellow church members are the only righteous people chosen of God is totally fine.  In fact it is encouraged.)

And a previously recorded Jake and Heather join in for a nice recycled song.

Sage is back to interview APEs Matt and Kristin (Atheist Parents Extraordinaire) — with a few comments from third-wheel-Glenn — as they discuss raising kids sans-faith-in-God.  Stick around to the end for a special announcement!

Don’t you miss Sunday School?  Don’t you miss frantically preparing your gospel doctrine lesson during sacrament meeting? Don’t you miss showing off your knowledge in class by citing scripture and verse or showing off your testimony with a well-rehearsed and choked-up personal anecdote?  Well grab your quad, your cardigan, and your clip on tie because it’s time to study D&C lesson 24 with Glenn, Randy and Heather smackdown style.
