The New Atheist’s Guide to Not Being a Total Asshole: Episode 7 (The Grand Inquisitor)

Listener Essay

Posted December 4th, 2016

Infant buddy Sage Turk is back to talk with Heather about one of her favorite things.

From wikipedia:

The Grand Inquisitor” is a poem in Fyodor Dostoyevsky‘s novel The Brothers Karamazov (1879–1880). It is recited by Ivan, who questions the possibility of a personal and benevolent God, to his brother Alyosha, a novice monk. “The Grand Inquisitor” is an important part of the novel and one of the best-known passages in modern literature because of its ideas about human nature and freedom, and its fundamental ambiguity.

I Don’t Belong Here: The Movie

Lightmindedness

Posted November 6th, 2016

A year ago today, the LDS Church enacted a policy placing restrictions on the membership of children living in same-sex households. The year since has been one of anguish for those affected, those that love them, and the membership as a whole as they try to grapple with these messages from their leaders. Listener Jeff Burr volunteered to help us make the following video in commemoration of the policy and its effects, based on Heather’s recent minisode/song on the latest Infant General Conference.
