CAS 007: The Dark Church

Summary:
In this episode we discuss the dark side of organized religion (also known as organized religion). While it turns out Catholic’s don’t eat fish on Friday’s because the church was invested in the fishing industry, the church has still done a lot of fishy stuff. What kinds of stuff, and what is the Pope hiding under his hat? Is Mormonism the drunk uncle of religions? Did the Church of Scientology steal the government’s records, or were they just auditing them? This week’s episode explores the whole seedy underbelly as we uncover the truth of religious conspiracies. Want to send us pictures of your seedy underbelly?

Notes:
1. Slavoj Zizek – Ecology (Examined Life Interview)
2. RETRACTION: @18:35, Colin mentioned that in West Africa, it is common for individuals to eat the body of the bodies of dead ebola victims as a form of vaccination. He fact checked later and discovered this isn’t true. However, it is common among West Africans, especially in Sierra Leone, to perform…”(t)raditional burial practices [which] often include washing, touching, and kissing the body…”, and in Uganda, “Prohibiting families from performing such rites is not only viewed as an affront to the deceased, but as actually putting the family in danger. In the event of an improper burial, the deceased person’s spirit (tibo) will cause harm and illness to the family” You can find this sourced here.
