This week on Cognitive Dissonance, Tom and Cecil cover more disturbing articles from recent news. The first story on the block, Pakistan bans Valentine’s Day for being Un-Islamic. No more heart shaped burkas for your sweetie. Faith-based organizations from Christian News express opposition to a St. Louis proposal adding Women who’ve aborted to the Non-Discrimination Ordinance. According to these groups:

“This horrible piece of legislation will now force city residents to be unwilling participants in the abortion business by requiring business owners and individuals to tacitly approve any ‘reproductive health’ decisions made by their employees or tenants.”

Did you know that pregnant women’s bodies aren’t their own because they are “hosts?” Oklahoma lawmaker states, “pregnant women’s bodies aren’t their own because they are “hosts.” Yup, we are still having the argument in 2017 that half of us are people. The cognitive dissonance that comes out of this story is astounding:

“I believe one of the breakdowns in our society is that we have excluded the man out of all of these types of decisions,” he said. “I understand that they feel like that is their body,” he said of women. “I feel like it is separate — what I call them is, is you’re a ‘host.’

More disturbing stories from the news:

  • Malaysia opening endorses “Gay cure” therapy through fasting.
  • Serial pedophile priest Raymond Cheek gets his three-year sentence reduced to two years, so it was not a “life crushing life sentence.”
  • Dave Daubenmire says “Public schools are engaged in The Spiritual Raping of Children...whatever that means…
  • Lance Wallnau: Donald Trump evicted witchcraft from The White House
  • Alex Jones: Lady Gaga is 'The Goddess Of Satan.'

Thanks to @angryblackrant for joining us. Tom, Cecil, and Ishmael talk about Jesse Lee Peterson’s opinion that if there were no black people in America, we wouldn’t have as many murders and riots.  Cecil and Tom then discuss how and why the Republican side was so much better at cock blocking than liberals are. Hillbilly God comes back to talk about the apples of Gods eye, aka his scrotum. Lastly, a Philadelphia woman is married to Jesus and is considered an extra fancy virgin by the Catholic Church.
