"Center for Medical Progress", Amanda Marcotte on Atheists Talk #325, August 9, 2015

This week, the Center for Medical Progress has released its fifth video claiming to show that Planned Parenthood is illegally selling aborted fetuses for medical research. This video, like each video before it, has been shown to be deceptively edited to hide Planned Parenthood's actual practices--allowing abortion patients in a small number of states to donate tissue as a service to those patients. In response to the deceptive video, Senate Republicans attempted to defund Planned Parenthood and failed. In the meantime, the Center for Medical Progress is being investigated for illegal practices of their own.

This Sunday, Amanda Marcotte, writer and host of the RH Reality Cast, will return to Atheists Talk to fill us in on these videos and place them in the context of the current political assault on reproductive rights.

"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.
