Here’s another compilation of Matt Dillahunty‘s best arguments and comebacks.
Later this month, Foundation Beyond Belief (which I’m on the board of) will be having a one-day conference in Boston revolving around the theme #BlackLivesMatter.
When I’ve mentioned this on social media, the responses have, sadly, been exactly what you’d expect: People saying that #AllLivesMatter and people arguing that the theme has nothing to do with Humanism.
Assuming for a moment that people who raise these issues do so in good faith, hoping to get real answers, our staff put together this video in response:
Brandon G. Withrow (below) used to be an assistant professor of the history of Christianity and religious studies at the Winebrenner Theological Seminary… which sounds like a nice gig when you’re a Christian scholar.
Not so great, however, when you stop believing in God.
Withrow realized he was no longer religious last year, putting him in a difficult position: Should he fake it and keep the job, or be honest about his doubts and try finding another faculty position at a secular university?
Arkansas State Senator Jason Rapert is the politician who filed a bill — now a law — to install a Ten Commandments monument on the Capitol grounds. He’s still supporting his bill even though a similar monument was just declared illegal in Oklahoma.
Athletes in Action, a part of Campus Crusade for Christ (“Cru”), is a group with a very straightforward goal:
Since 1966, Athletes in Action has been using sports as a platform to help people answer questions of faith and to point them to Jesus.
That’s all fine. They have a right to promote their faith as they wish.
