“Hemant, t-shirts and a blog contest, hot damn!”
This week Hemant Mehta from the Friendly Atheist blog joins us to talk about his recent woes with the Illinois Family Institute. A woman named Laurie Higgins wants to let families know that they have an atheist blogger for a math teacher and Hemant was kind enough to come on the show and let us know how things are going at school. Laurie Higgins was unavailable for comment.
No seriously, I called and asked for an interview and everything.
In the news:
Remember the burqa you bought to swim in? Well, it turns out you don’t need it anymore. Damn. A priest has elevated child abuse to a new height and bus drivers are martyrs for Jesus. If you plan on killing your children, make sure you do it for religious reasons, apparently that is a bullet proof defense. Scientists may have just proven that you didn’t just evolve from a monkey, you evolved from a FRICKIN COMET. Praying at Lunch: go directly to jail. Do not pass go, do not collect $200. And of course, if you need your money cleansed of The Jesus, go ahead and send it to me. I will TOTALLY take care of that for you. No problem!Richard has some pretty sweet shirts to sell over at Atheist Nexus, go check them out.
And I’m running a blog contest to see who the next writer on the Atheist News Blog will be, come to the site and take a look.
