Episode 5 Separation On State Street

Does your grandmother run a dungeon? Independent film maker Rob St. Marry joins us in the studio to discuss his new documentary The Separation on State Street. His film follows the story of Anonka owner of a new age gift shop and "Witch Museum" in a small conservative Michigan town. Anonka's shop met with protests and boycotts from the beginning. But "all hell broke loose" when she challenged the cities decision to have a nativity scene placed on the court lawn. Soon afterwards Anonka and her family had to endure violence, death threats and intimidation at the hands of their "Christian" neighbors. Rob St. Marry shares the fascinating story, much of which he was personally an eye-witness to.

Also featured:

  • the Dalai Lama's controversial statement about his future successor
  • Scholars of Religion take on the Flying Spaghetti Monster
  • The latest development in stem-cell research that has the Religious right (prematurely) saying "I told you so!"
