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 answer questions about this suddenly militaristic God, as well as Dagon. And now we wanna be Dagonists because it turns out he was way cooler than Yahweh. Plus his wife was known as "mistress who amazes the world" which is what I want to be for Halloween this year. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/sacrilegious-discourse/message

Husband and Wife cover 1 Samuel chapter 5: The Ark in the Land of the Philistines. It's not good, y'all. There are broken statues and lots of tumors and these guys are like, "um, can you have it back now, cuz we don't want it." Pretty sure the Philistines are about to throw the Ark back at the Israelites. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/sacrilegious-discourse/message

Husband and Wife cover 1 Samuel chapter 4: The Philistines Capture the Ark. Eli and his rapey sons bite the dust, as in a "shocking" turn of events, the Israelites lose the Ark of the Covenant during a battle with the Philistines. The wife of one of the rapey guys gives birth and names her son Loser before she dies too. And Samuel isn't even in this chapter! --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/sacrilegiou...

Husband and Wife cover 1 Samuel chapter 3: The LORD Calls Samuel. God calls Samuel's name like five times and Sammy is like "whut" because he thinks it's Eli on account of God is seriously absent and doesn't do appearances so much anymore. Something shocking is going to happen but we're left in a year's-long cliffhanger. Eli is pretty chill about his fate and we are on pins and needles waiting to learn h...

Husband and Wife cover 1 Samuel chapter 2: The Song of Hannah / The Sins of Eli's Sons. You'll be pleased to know we refrain from singing, but Wife does engage a Texas accent for no particular reason. God changes the details of previously made promises, but only after a lifetime of rape and fuckery has already occurred. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/sacrilegious-discourse/message

Husband and Wife cover 1 Samuel chapter 1: The Birth of Samuel. Making fun of someone who can't have babies is just cruel, but as we've learned, the Bible is not lacking in mean-spirited bitchery. No worries, tho, as the bullied wife prays super hard, gets bullied AGAIN by a priest, gets preggers, and then drops her boy off with the bully priest. Makes total sense. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/sacrileg...

Husband and Wife review the Book of Judges. We talk about some weird legends surrounding Micah and his relation to false idols, as well as some political spin involving the Tribe of Dan. Husband toots his own horn and Wife finds a way to sleep better at night.

Husband and Wife cover Judges chapter 21: Wives for the Benjamites. These nasty fucks wipe out an entire tribe and then unironically cry because an entire tribe has been wiped out. THEN they cry because the few remaining men have no wives, so they legit encourage the dudes to kidnap virgin girls from the annual dance off, and they tell the girls' fathers to be sympathetic to the kidnappers who (DUH) obviously NEED wives. And th...

Husband and Wife cover Judges chapter 20: The War against the Benjamites. An entire town decides to stand behind their rapey rapers, and as a result, that town gets demolished. We aren't really sure how to feel about this turn of events, because on the one hand RAPE, but on the other hand ANNIHILATION. We ultimately conclude that the Bible sucks. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/sacrilegious-discourse/message

She told friends and coworkers she was trapped in abusive relationships, or that she was the mother of children who had died. It was all a con.
