The humorous podcast about religion.

We can't get enough of these letters. This wad of them does not disappoint. What's better than having a famous Satanist next door? Perhaps running away from a demon at summer camp? 

We tie up the episode with a great, little, letter about an acting extra who's seen some shit, and been on one of our favorite shows.

Please send in your letters at our WEBSITE.

Hollywood Gods

If I was a pastor, I think I'd feel called to have a tax-exempt house in Hollywood myself. 

This week, Karen and Bonnie agree to disagree about Churchome in California. It sounds like a decent community to one, it sounds like the same ol' story to the other.

Plus, we discuss the most influential Christians in Hollywood, as well as the rudest, according to Ranker.com. The list overlaps a tad.

Thanksgiving Survival Guide

Bonnie and Karen shepherd you through the religious obstacles of Thanksgiving dinner. We throw in a history lesson, sprinkle it with some rat urine, and then send you into the lion's den. Good luck, Champ.

Noah’s Ark Nemesis: Logic

How did this story of violent death and floating babies turn into the cutest story in the Bible, with cute toys being given to children at Christmas? 

Bonne and Karen tackle the issues that float to the top with this fantastical story they both thought was real growing up. 

Kanye's back with more of his Christian humility and putting others first. We've got Paula White receiving an official White House position. And it all wraps up with the bombshell accusations about sexual misconduct of comedian John Crist. Never a week off around here.

We get Kanye out of the way by talking about how upset he is that he can't do math for Forbes.

Paula, Paula, Paula. Paula White is in the news again because Trump gave her an official posting. NowThis made a video of her clips. America, you in trouble girl.

John Crist is a snarky Christian comedian who actually has some good bits, moslty because he wasn't afraid of poking fun at Christian stereotypes. This week, a Christian news outlet broke the news of his sexual misconduct, leading to him canceling his tour and Netflix canceling his special.

Thanks for all the letters recently. We love reading them.

This month’s Lettersode went sidewayyyyys. It wasn’t the letter writers’ fault. We recorded in the morning and were much more chipper, and sometimes things in our path get destroyed.

Our letters from Bethany, Fred, and Brad were awesome. We have curse words, Gary Smalley, and more Multi-level marketing fun.

If you’ve braved coming to see show notes, your reward is the picture of the nipple foot Bonnie sent me.

Happy JesusWeen

No, we did not make that word up. But sadly, someone else did.

This week Karen and Bonnie share their memories of Halloweens past, when the church hadn't upped the ante on hijacking it for Fall Festivals and Hallelujah Nights. Or JesusWeens, a concept that didn't make it far out of the gate, but far enough for it to still be out there.

There are two great letters from listeners who had to celebrate Halloween at church, hints on how to survive waterboarding, and these tacky Christian-themed Halloween items.

We’d love to hear any stories of this Halloween, past ones, or see some costumes. The laughing is a two-way street.

Don’t forget we have a SHOP. We’d love you to…shop there.

Leaving Westboro Baptist

Bonnie and Karen were ready to skewer everything and everyone connected to hateful Westboro Baptist, with their God Hates Fags picket lines. But then they read Unfollow by Megan Phelps-Roper who left the church (her entire family) and has now come out with the book.

Despicable? Yes. Hurtful? Of course. But with hearing and reading from the granddaughter of the founder of the church, we understand the psychology more.

We also highlight the Equality House, a home purchased across the street form Westboro Baptist that has become an LBGT museum and is painted like a huge rainbow flag.

Once again, we learned a lot from this episode. It hurts our egos to keep learning like this.

MLMs: Moms Losing Money

It's just a little fun on the side. Sell some oils or woven baskets, make some pocket money. Of course, that's not how it ends up at all. Multi-Level marketing companies are mainly Christian/Mormon run--Mary Kay, DoTerra Oils, Pampered Chef, Advocare, and many more. The secret hidden in plain sight is that 75% of people (ok, women) who join MLMs don't make money. And about 50% LOSE money. 

Bonnie and Karen discuss which MLMs are religious-based, why, and what the hell is going on. 

They try to keep their usual light manner, but it gets hard when so many mothers are getting shafted by something that is supposed to empower them.
