Holy Commandments, Batman! Louisiana's Gone Biblical

Welcome back, dear listeners! In this week's episode, "Holy Commandments Batman! Louisiana's Gone Biblical," we're diving headfirst into the swampy mess of Louisiana politics. Governor Jeff Landry's new law mandating the Ten Commandments in every classroom has us rolling our eyes and sharpening our tongues. Is this a church or a state? Spoiler: It’s supposed to be the latter.

Join us as we break down this legislative dumpster fire, from the GOP's 40-year-long chess game of stacking local and state positions to the audacious theatrics of signing the bill. We explore landmark Supreme Court cases like Lemon vs Kurtzman and Stone vs Graham to explain why this religious overreach is unconstitutional and just plain ridiculous.

We also highlight the crucial work of organizations like the ACLU and the Freedom from Religion Foundation, who are gearing up for a legal battle against this nonsense. And if you're wondering why politics always creeps into our religion podcast, this episode will make it crystal clear.

So grab your popcorn and get ready for some righteous indignation, sprinkled with a dash of snark. Oh, and don't miss our upcoming episode on Ezekiel 31!

Stay skeptical, stay snarky.
