Chris, Tom, Robin, and Anthony discuss the recent controversy over Todd Akin’s remarks, Robin’s essay on the true shape of the religious right (hint: not everything is what it seems), and our own take on dating outside your belief system.
Tom and Chris discuss the Curiosity Rover, the age-old question of the “rights” of a majority, bad billboards, and the Romney/Ryan ticket. Also, Mike continues his “Questions for an Atheist” segment to hopefully fill in a few more gaps in the collective knowledge.
Tom sits down with author and activist Darrel Ray to discuss his new book, “Sex & God: How Religion Distorts Sexuality”, as well as the Recovering Religionists organization. Also, Mike Gage bites the bullet and starts progressing through a list of questions posed by Christians designed to give atheists pause. Thanks for tuning in!
76: Oakland Zoo Monument Protest, Corporations & Religion, Aurora Shooting, Interview with Larry Hicok
Tom, Robin, and Chris discuss an upcoming protest to remove the Ten Commandments monument at the Oakland City Zoo (including an interview with organizer Larry Hicok), thoughts on corporations and their religious affiliations, as well as a frank discussion on the recent Aurora shooting.
Tom, Robin, Anthony, and Chris discuss things large and small, be they the large wealth of the Vatican or the tiny size of the Higgs Boson. Enjoy!
Just Tom and Chris this week discussing everything from the US Federal tax burden incurred by the religious exemptions to whether or not Sunday church brunchers make good tippers. As always, rant and praise can be directed to the comments section or to anamericanatheist.org/contact.
