Episode 17: Strong Language and “Nones” on the Rise

26 Oct

Some talk about strong language, some Wait, What? The bulk of the episode consists of us elbowing our way through the findings of a recent Pew Forum study regarding the increase in the proportion of the “nones” – those in the population unaffiliated with religion.

Pew Forum results

“Just like what Nazi Germany did to the Jews, America is now doing to the evangelical Christians. […] It is happening all over again. […] Wholesale abuse and discrimination and the worst bigotry directed toward any group in America today. More terrible than anything suffered by any minority in history.” – Pat Robertson

Listen to this episode

What makes bad words bad? Are evangelical Christians a persecuted minority? Is the Pew Forum a pro-religion organization or just an organization that collects data about religion?
