Episode 35: No Special Guest?!

Episode 35: No Special Guest?!


We’ve had an exciting few weeks with what seems like regular guests, but this week it is back to the basics with just Jason, Bob and myself. We share some of our reflections on the discussion we had with Matthew last week and then delve into a new topic.

This past week we had a video shared with us via our Youtube page. Now the video itself is really just a very weak example of pareidolia (a great evolutionary leftover from a more dangerous age). The person leaving the video also left us a link to the website of one Pastor Melissa Scott, wife to the late Gene Scott. Now, say what you will about the closets of some evangelical ministers out there, Melissa Scott’s skeletons are a real duesy. This pastor, who supposedly speaks twenty languages, married her late husband at the age of 32, he was 70, after they bonded over stamp collecting. The fact that she was a porn star named Bambi Bridges may or may not have had something to do with it too, especially if you are familiar with Gene Scott’s love of his “pony girls.” Regardless, it was more than enough to keep us talking for some time! Enjoy the show!

Why is it that these pastors always seem to have the craziest back stories? What are your thoughts? Let us know! You can contact us at [email protected], like us on Facebook / Google+ or call the ZPN hotline at (757) 337-2195. And don’t forget to subscribe to This Non-Religious Life on  iTunes or listen to us on Stitcher Radio.
