Austere Religious Scholarship

On today’s Remnant, recorded in the wilds of Oklahoma, Jonah once again attempts to fuse the weekend Ruminant format with that of a supplemental episode. He begins by elaborating on his pro-life views and what abortion law would look like if he were made czar for a day. Afterward, a nerdtastic dive into the morass of intellectual history begins, as Jonah uses an extract from The Tyranny of Clichés (which is still available from all good book sellers, hint-hint) to explore what separation of church and state really means in American life. Tune in not just to hear Jonah’s patented progressive-bashing, but to either commend or correct his pronunciation of a certain troublesome name.   Show Notes: -The Wednesday “news”letter -Biden’s Catholic quandary -Moynihan on partial-birth abortion -Locke’s “A Letter Concerning Toleration” -Don’t burn the witch -JFK (or possibly Mayor Quimby) and Catholicism -Mario Cuomo’s Notre Dame speech -Jonah’s deep affection for Richard Ely -Barack Obama, arbiter of sin -Seinfeld on spite See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
