The Other Madonna: Sex and Religion in Music (Ariana Grande, Taylor Swift, Madonna, and Hozier)
Ariana Grande’s “God Is A Woman,” Taylor Swift’s “False God,” Madonna’s “Like a Virgin” and Hozier’s “Take Me to Church.” Only one thing is clear from this episode- Alex does NOT know how to pronounce “Hozier.” In this episode, Alex and Katie discuss their thoughts on pop stars using religious and (in particular) Christian images as a way to talk about sex. Is it weird that Taylor Swift talks about praying to Jesus about her mom in the hospital, and then replaces him with sex in the next song of the album? And what about Ariana? IS God a woman? If not, why not? What happens when Madonna goes too far- can she? AND HOW DO YOU ACTUALLY PRONOUNCE HOZIER? Is it possible that he might have the best reason to use religious and sexual analogy? These things and more, on this episode of Religious War.

Throwing the Baby Out With the Baptism Water: believer baptism, original sin, and victorian portraits
Babies, believers, and baptists (oh my). In this episode of Religious War, we dive into the phenomenon that is baptism. Why do we dip babies into water? Why do some churches wait until someone is older, and does it matter whether someone is baptised at all? Katie explores her opinion on the famous “unbaptised babies go to purgatory” belief, Alex shares her experience going to many-a-Italian christening, and we get a glimpse into why Alex’s brother’s baptism may have messed him up entirely.
