On Freethought Radio, Gov. Huckabee says Kentucky clerk Kim Davis (who defied gay-marriage orders) is “God.” We’ll hear about what’s making the news this week in the battle to keep state and church separate and about a victory in which the FFRF gets a Georgia city to pull out of “Gospel Fest.” Then Annie Laurie Gaylor and Dan Baker talk with screenwriter Chris Matheson (Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure, Bill & Teds’ Bogus Journey) about his new humorous book, The Story of God: A Biblical Comedy about Love (and Hate). We have not one, but two contributions from Gordon Bonnet and the Skeptophilia blog on today’s show.  First he weighs in on the Kim Davis Affair in Kentucky, in number two, Gordon ponders why so many folks who say the God they worship is omnipotent, feel it necessary to police speech about him.  You’d think such a being would be able to take care of himself. Then back to the subject of animal rights that we got started two weeks ago. We’ll hear from the philosopher who gets credited with igniting the modern animal rights movement 40 years ago with this book Animal Liberation. Peter Singer is interviewed by Nigel Warburton on the Ethical Bites podcast. Then we return to Dan Kaufman’s Myoclonic Jerk podcast, episode 8, ‘Eating Animals.’
