"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.

"Stay", Jennifer Michael Hecht on Atheists Talk #320, July 5, 2015

After losing two friends to suicide just over a year apart, atheist Jennifer Michael Hecht was looking for answers. As she usually does, she turned to philosophy, but she found herself dissatisfied with the reactive individualism of Enlightenment and modern secular philosophy. Out of that dissatisfaction came Stay: A History of Suicide and the Arguments Against It. Stay chronicles the history of Western reasons for committing suicide and the religious and secular reasons philosophers have given for people to hang on through bleakness and despair.

Hecht joins us this Sunday to talk about the book and to talk about why would should be grateful to those who chose to remain with us.
