Cristina Rad, better known as ZOMGitsCriss, spoke at the American Atheists convention last weekend:
As always, if you notice a particularly great clip, leave the timestamp and summary in the comments!
Hemant Mehta is the chair of Foundation Beyond Belief and a high school math teacher in the suburbs of Chicago. He began writing the Friendly Atheist blog in 2006. His latest book is called The Young Atheist's Survival Guide.
I love her accent and she is a gorgeous woman. I have loved listing to her rant over the years on YouTube and it is very nice that she doesn’t have to live in the shadows anymore.
She is a strong voice and I hope she continues being one.
I love her accent too. But I just want to chastise the community for not recording these events properly. The video, though it is probably better to have than not, is of dismal quality. Can’t folks in the atheist movement take time to learn how to use a tripod and hook into some decent sound? It’s not that hard!
There was professional video taken, but it’s for the DVD. In the meantime, we’ll deal with handheld camera videos
“My Idea of progress is to try and fix the bad things and not adding new bad things on top of them”
Wow I’m a thiest and enjoyed her speech, agreeing with a lot of her points. Hmmm will that make me an apostate in my belief community? Oh well if it does I’m in the wrong community.
OK, I HAVE TO SPEAK OUT AND TAKE A STAND (in my best crazy-caps voice). At 6:05 Cristina VICIOUSLY slanders Lot for getting his daughters pregnant, saying “… a man’s gotta do what a man’s gotta do, when his wife is turned to salt.” This is nothing but pure feminist, anti-male propaganda. It says right in the god=damn book (I love saying that) that those harlots got Lot drunk and RAPED HIM! And that’s the God’s-Honest Truth (which, of course, is a pretty low bar, but it’s the good book after all, so who’s gonna argue with me?).
very nice speech , congratulation miss Cristina
