"Legal Battles Loom for LGBT," Annie Laurie Gaylor on Atheists Talk #324, August 2, 2015

On June 26, 2015, the United States Supreme Court, in a historic vote, moved our nation one step closer to finding equality under the law by legalizing same sex marriage nationally.  There are many in the religious right however, unwilling to allow their fellow citizens participate fully in society.  Unfortunately, in far too many cases, those in the religious right are also in positions of power, or have the authority to exercise control over the freedoms of their fellow Americans.

On this episode we welcome Annie Laurie Gaylor, cofounder of the Freedom From Religion Foundation, editor for Freethought Today, the nation’s only freethought newspaper.  In addition to her editorial and leadership roles within the FFRF, Annie also has found time to author the books Woe to Women: The Bible Tells Me So, Betrayal of Trust: Clergy Abuse of Children, and Women Without Superstition: No Gods – No Masters.  Annie is here to discuss and help us understand what obligations are there for people in the religious right have when it comes to executing the duties government. We’ll also discuss areas of continued state sanctioned discrimination where people across the entire LGBTQIAA spectrum still face hurdles on a daily basis.

We welcome Annie Laurie Gaylor to the show to bring her expertise and experience on legal issues concerning this new tactic to punch a hole in the wall between church and state. Maddy Love of A Minnesota Trans-Atheist podcast joins us to conduct the interview.

"AtheistVoter", Amanda Knief on Atheists Talk #323, July 26, 2015

In May, American Atheists underwent a reorganization to better help them focus on shaping public policy. As part of that focus, they created a new role of National Legal and Public Policy Director in Washington, DC. This role is filled by former Executive Director Amanda Knief, whose background is in law and politics. This past week, she took American Atheists' AtheistVoter initiative to the Family Leadership Summit in Iowa to ask conservative Christian politicians what they had to offer the growing demographic of nonbeliever voters and to join Iowa Atheists and Freethinkers' protest of the event.

This Sunday, Amanda returns to Atheists Talk to discuss the aims of the AtheistVoter program and tell us what else she looks to accomplish in her new role.

"Skeptical Gun Duel," Eric Jayne and Art Kallenbach on Atheists Talk #322, July 19, 2015

On May 31, Mike Haubrich and Art Kallenbach discussed the balance between Second Amendment rights and responsibilities and the need to address gun violence in the United States.  The conversation was only the beginning of an attempt to create dialog between supporters of gun rights and supporters of gun control, with conversations that look at the facts and try to steer away from the emotional charge that often gets in the way of a fruitful discussion of the topic.  On this show, we will be joined by an addtional debater as Eric Jayne gets into the fray.  Eric is a supporter of gun control and Art is a supporter of gun rights.  Please join us as we further develop the topic.

"Fortney Road," Jeff Stevenson on Atheists Talk #321, July 12, 2015

So, what really happened at Fortney Road?  In the late 1960's and during the 1970's, Christianity was adding a large new movement of former hippies and drug users and other young adults.  They referred to themselves as "Jesus Freaks."  It was a movement of communes and music, of revolutionary ideas that brought The Word to people who were bored with and couldn't relate to conventional evangelical christianity.  Larry Hill was the charismatic preacher and leader of one such church based from a farm on Fortney Road. 

Our guest, Jeff Stevenson, spent seven years researching the goings on of a cult whose members were run through an ordeal that few can understand.  They lived through sleep deprivation, corporal punishment and sexual abuse at the hands of Hill.  Things looked great from the outside, and sounded great, too.  The church sponsored a musical group that has produced some of the most unusual blues/rock Christian music ever heard and featured the talented guitarist Glenn Schwartz, who had come through The James Gang and Pacific Gas And Electric before joining Hill's church and helping to form the All Saved Freak Band. 

Freethought House has published Stevenson's book and we welcome the author to the show.
