Episode 4 of the Secular Nation Podcast is out! Tim and I interview Ed Buckner, co-author of "In Freedom We Trust: An Atheist Guide to Religious Liberty," a first-rate book on -- what else? -- our Secular Nation. But first, Tim reads some pretty nutty stuff from a fundamentalist group opposed to the Girl Scouts. Right afterward we bought a truckload of Thin Mints.
Just in time for the holidays! An interview with Margaret Downey!
The battle over secularism in government is one of the modern traditions of the holiday season. Whether you want to keep Christ in Christmas, Thor in Thursday, Soul in Solstice, or Yul (Brynner) in Yuletide, Margaret Downey has been leading the fight to keep government out of the belief business.
Episode 1 of the Secular Nation Podcast is now up and available for download on iTunes. In our first episode we speak with Herb Silverman, President of the Secular Coalition for America, and Author of "Candidate Without a Prayer: An Autobiography of a Jewish Atheist in the Bible Belt"
