Sacrilegious Discourse - Bible Study for Atheists

Sacrilegious Discourse - Bible Study for Atheists

Husband and Wife are two non-believers who have always wanted to read the Bible. Why would we subject ourselves to this you might ask? From our perspective it helps us understand where the Christians around us, here in the Midwest, are coming from when they quote the Bible at us. Husband is basically an Atheist and wife leans Agnostic but mostly Atheist and we're just having some fun at the Bible's expense while learning more about what our neighbors claim we're going to hell over.

Husband and Wife cover 1 Kings chapter 11: Solomon's Apostasy and Adversaries / The Death of Solomon. Suddenly Solomon sucks! Sleazy scumbag seizes several spouses, stupidly succumbs to spiritual seduction, and supports supplications to Satan. So sad.

Husband and Wife cover questions about the Queen of Sheba and the month of Ziv. We got riddles and demons and spiders up in here. Also, a note about calendars and Star Dates.

Husband and Wife cover 1 Kings chapter 10: The Queen of Sheba Visits Solomon / Solomon's Riches and Fame / Solomon's Trade in Horses and Chariots. The queen supposedly asks some hard questions, but we're pretty sure she just wanted to know Solomon's shoe size, and permission to jump into his hot tub. Very disappointing. Also, we remain convinced that Solomon wrote this entire book himself because there is a staggeri...

Husband and Wife cover 1 Kings chapter 8: Solomon Brings the Ark into the Temple / The Dedication of the Temple. You guys. They killed so many animals in this chapter! Like, tens of thousands of sheep. I'm surprised there are any left on the planet today. Ridiculous!

Husband and Wife cover 1 Kings chapter 7: Solomon's Other Buildings / Solomon Employs Huram of Tyre / The Furnishings for the Temple. Everything that isn't gold is bronze. We gots lots of pomegranates and gourds and wreaths for a giant heated pool called The Sea. We'd rather watch Beverly Hills Cop.

Husband and Wife cover questions about Abishag and Bathsheba. We discuss child brides, erectile disfunction, and one wily wife. Spoiler Alert: the wily wife in question is NOT a cohost of this podcast. But we can see why you'd think that.

Husband and Wife cover 1 Kings chapter 4: Solomon's Wisdom and Prosperity (cont). Pretty sure Hunger Games is based on the 12 districts named in this chapter. Samuel is likely where the "Well, actually" meme started, because my guy knows everything about everything and even tho he's done nothing wrong thus far, we kinda hate him.

Husband and Wife cover 1 Kings chapter 2: David's Charge to Solomon / The Death of David / Solomon Establishes His Kingdom. There's a lot of death in this chapter, but honestly, none of it seemed out of left field or over-the-top, insofar as Bible canon goes. We kinda like that Solomon is taking a decisive, tough, yet fair, stance. He killed Joab and we ain't even mad.

Husband and Wife cover 1 Kings chapter 1: Abishag Ministers to David / Adonijah Usurps the Throne / Solomon Made King. David is so old that he REQUIRES a beautiful virgin to keep him warm at night. Another one of his gorgeous sons is a backstabbing SOB. In a shocking betrayal, Joab switches teams. Solomon seems chill.  Come see us September 3rd at the Kentucky Freethought Convention in Louisville! Tickets are only $10 online ($15 a...
