Becky, Bridget, and Sean delve into the damaging philosophies of abstinence-only school sex ed presenters, share excitement over the upcoming March for Science, and consider when atheists should publicly visually identify themselves as such. We’re also unhappy with local hate crimes. News Kennewick, WA schools reconsider abstinence speaker Temple vandalized with Holocaust-denying graffiti Kent, WA Sikh man shot Governor Inslee denounces hate crimes Texas students invited to fight corporal punishment with the help of Satan South Dakota blue laws still in place after bizarre anti-antheist rant by a real Dick Emails I am glad you talked about the Atheist response to the Muslim Ban. I live near the Dulles International Airport, and when I saw the news about the ban and its cruel and tumultuous and counterproductive implementation, I got more and more upset. I went on Reddit r/atheism…and there were some awful opinions about the morality of this ban – many people said that this would stop terrorists coming in. Even people who were against the ban strongly felt that Atheists should not publicly take a side. I obviously disagreed. The fact is that these refugees are people ESCAPING Muslim terrorism, and I felt they should be […]
Ask An Atheist is a weekly radio show dedicated to atheism, skepticism, Secular Humanism, and issues of separation of church and state. AaA was conceived in 2010 by community members Mike Gillis, Casey Doran, Sam Mulvey, and Jeremy Whitman. Each brought different talents to the project, which quickly attracted volunteers from across three counties.
This week we talk about cruciform beverages, religious field trips, and death conversion therapy. Casey and Dave join Sam in the studio.

In the first segment Meredith, Sam, and Wes talk wire taps, pledges, and surprising new atheist groups. Following that discussion we sit down and listen to Shelley‘s music live in the studio, with several unexpected surprises. So unexpected Sam didn’t really know it was happening until we were recording it. Note 1: Since this episode has music, it’s encoded in a higher quality than normal, and is therefore larger.

Sam and Becky speak with Shelley Segal and Rob in the studio about immigration, Russian flags, and being on tour. We also discuss I-1552, supernatural politics, and CQNW. News CPAC FALSE FLAG OPERATION Witches Engage in Nation-wide Presidential Binding Spell– One, Two Tacoma Rally Draws Supporters of Trans Rights Commentary and Emails Hey Sam et al, So, [regarding] the Briarwood [megachurch] wanting a police force: what do they gain from it that they can’t gain from just employing off-duty cops? Access to civil asset forfeiture. Alabama has the worst Civil forfeiture laws in the country, the police department that seizes the money or property keeps 100 percent of the seized proceeds in Alabama. There also is no requirement that state and local law enforcement agencies account for the forfeitures and show how the money is spent. Police have a bar so low to justify seizing property that there might as well be one and the onus is then on the owner to prove their innocence.Dean from Paris Can I be on your show?Colton from Washington State About the “Ask An Atheist” Podcast
