Our next podcast will be our 40th. It will be taped this Sunday, and Josh and I wanted to give you a heads up on what will be happening.
We have been thinking about what to do for our 40th podcast and something kind of fell into our laps that is quite appropriate to mark such a grand occasion. A little luck, a fortunate turn of events and some consistent legwork by Josh has landed us a very controversial and interesting guest.
On our next show, Josh and I will be locking horns (and I mean that possibly quite literally) with Shirley Phelps Roper, spokesperson of GodHatesFags.com. This group is famous for their multi-colored signs declaring such things as “God Hates Fags” (of course), “You’re Going to Hell”, “Too Late to Pray”, “God Hates You”, “Thank God for 9/11” and our personal favorite, “Your Pastor is a Whore”.
Shirley and her group have recently garnered national attention for their newfound passion of picketing the funerals of American soldiers who have died in Iraq with signs that say, “Thank God for Dead Soldiers”. Recently Shirley appeared on CNN and Fox News declaring her Christian beliefs that God rejoices everytime a dead soldier dies in Iraq. Hmph.
Seriously, can you think of a better way to celebrate our 40th episode? It should be full of stupidity for everyone involved. I just hope we make it through our planned hour with her before Josh’s head explodes.
