A 2008 video podcast by Penn Jillette has been slapped with a “L” Language advisory when it appears on YouTube:
But I can’t for the life of me figure out why. This is what he said:
You know this atheism/agnosticism question has been continuing. I’ve got this buddy here in Vegas, Gail, and she’s [...]
According to the Constitution of the United States of America, the government is supposed to be uninvolved in matters of religion, and leave belief up to individual personal conscience. However, as of 2008, the Democratic Party will no longer support that position. [...]
