They’re about to go live. Google the Dogma Debate podcast to find them and listen. I’m going to be on at some point griping about country music. :)
You all know I like to give credit to the faces of atheism who, off the stage, are actually really good people. The cast of Dogma Debate are such people. David Smalley is all about the cause and is about the nicest guy you’ll ever meet. Daniel and Shayrah are also some great people to hang out with.
Greta Christina is up first, and I they’re going to talk about Michael Shermer stepping in shit with his “intellectually active” comment. Greta is tackling it beautifully. This was one real example of somebody severely fucking up and he deserves to be called on it. It’s unfortunate, because Shermer has a great body of good work, and I think the tendency is often to write off the whole of someone’s work when they say something that stupid.
Greta just cited that women tend to be more religious and more bound to their church than men. It’s true, and it’s a problem. Have you read what the bible says about women? If we’re struggling to compete with Christian churches for women, we have a real problem.
w00t! Got to go on the show and rant about country music. It was painful because I had to listen to an especially terrible country song, but worth it. Long ago, I swore I’d never follow Greta Christina on stage again…something about a wise man knowing his limitations. However, for Dogma Debate, I did it again.
Apparently anti-gay writer Matthew Moore has been found to have a profile on Grinder, a gay-dating site. I’m more shocked by the sun rising in the east.
During the bad bible verses, David Smalley says “If you can eat shrimp, I can eat cock.” That’s a keeper. :)
