Inspired by John Oliver’s recent smackdown on televangelists, Carl and Mike take on 5 questions about Q — (it’s more than a letter — it’s a religion) and their often talked about proposal to start the Church of Q. 

Q isn’t a church yet, but it is a state of mind.  Join Carl and Mike as they share their thoughts about religion and the tenants of Q as they answer the following five questions…


1) What is Q?

2) When it comes to God why is “I don't know" the honest answer?

3) What do you have against faith?

4) Are there any holidays in the Church of Q?

5) What does it cost to be a member of Q?
