ATHEISTS HELPING THE HOMELESS, WITH JOE ZAMECKI (about 15 minutes into the show).

Joe Zamecki joins us from Austin to give us an update on the Atheists Helping the Homeless (AHH) program.  Back in September 2009, Joe and two of his colleagues started a giveaway program for the homeless in Austin, Texas.  Atheists Helping the Homeless has now grown to include regular giveways in Austin, Dallas-Ft. Worth … and maybe more.

IS IT TIME TO TAX THE CHURCHES?  OR RETHINK PARSONAGE EXEMPTIONS?  Insight from Robert Baty, Retired IRS Appeals Officer (About 30 Minutes Into the Show)

A retired IRS Appeals Officer, Robert received a special citation from the Office of Area Director Appeals, for his “commitment to excellence, devotion to duty, and hard work which so significantly contributed to Appeals Area 7 being recognized as the most Outstanding Area in the Nation.”

Cited in Forbes, Baty is a Christian activist who supports the effort to repeal Internal Revenue Code § 107, as presently codified and administered, that allows only "ministers" to receive income tax free income as long as it is spent on housing, Baty argues against young earth “creation science,” demonstrating why it fails in its scientific pretentions and legal challenges.  He’s been particularly interested in creationist Kent and Jo Hovinand’s tax cases.
