SORT BY Relevancy
This installment of The Forbidden Fruit radio show will ask and play with the question, "Is Atheism a Religion?" Where does the Devil fit in, if at all? Would you attend a weekly Atheism service? You just left religion and now you are enjoying sleeping in on Sunday's if you like. Why would you trade worshiping an invisible God on Sunday mornings for not worshiping an invisible God on those very same Sunday mornings? I don't believe in the Spagetti Monster, but I wish I would catch myself getting up on any morning, meeting up with other non believers of the Great Spagetti Monster and singing "Oh How Great Thou Aren't" hymns.
Call in and have some fun with us on the Fruit!

Is atheism a replacement for religion? Or is atheism simply another religion?
As non-theists and freethought groups organize, gather and even sometimes attend things like the "Sunday assembly," the charge is often heard that the godless are acting religious, that their adherence to science is "faith," and that their gatherings are just anothe form of church.
In this show, we explore the question. And we hear from David Silverman, President of one of the largest atheist (religious???) organizations in the world.
Dave discusses some of the recent controversy at Clemson University involving an atheist group playing the overused and mis-applied "proseletyzing" card. It all boils down to atheists wanting their religion, "the religion of atheism" to win the day, rather than their faux nobility to see that religion is separated from the state. We'll also challenge the atheist to put their evidence on the table to support their worldview and not to blindly rely on atheist preachers. Dave will answer some listener e-mail and wrap things up with a look at the box office. Thanks and God Bless.
This afternoon on EBC†RADIO, Richard will be looking at the subject of Atheism. What is Atheism? Is Atheism a just a lack of belief as the Atheist claim or do they have their own religion? Richard will also be talking about a favor trick that some Atheist groups try and promote this time a year.
What does it mean when religious people describe atheists as angry or militant? Why do non-believers often describe the religious as stupid, ignorant and batsh*t crazy? Do we have to respect others' beliefs? What is the difference, if any, between respecting the person and respecting their beliefs?

1st Hour: Christopher Loren, Permission To Be Human.
Christopher Loren author of Unspirituality – Permission To Be Human, reveals the delusions, betrayal and repression of not only organized religion, but spiritual and mystical beliefs. His book is a call to stand up and be proud to be human without the spiritual story.
Loren sees an uplifting future for humankind, where "the long hardened road of religious and spiritual delusion ... [comes] to an abrupt end, like a domino effect, cascading across the globe."
2nd Hour: Joe Zamecki and Paul Loebe, Is atheism a religion?
The Department of Justice recently argued that atheism is a religious movement. What do the atheists say? Is atheism a religion – or a religious movement?
One of the respected voices in atheism is Joe Zamecki, a friendly activist who has been at the frontlines of atheism causes for years. His most recent project has been Atheists Helping the Homeless, which has grown to include regular giveaways throughout Texas.
Also joining us is foxhole atheist Paul Loebe, the American Atheists' Military Director and Executive Director of Rock Beyond Belief. Although a member of the Marine Corps, Paul is not speaking on behalf of the Dept. of Defense. However, he will share with us his perspectives on religion imposed on military service members.
After a spirited exchange on Twitter regarding atheism and religion, Alexander Smith and I agreed to continue our discussion on the air. You can only get so deep in 140 characters! Tune in!
Have you had your healthy dose of reality lately?
There are always at least two sides to every story. Have you ever wondered how someone, who saw the same thing you did, walked away telling a vastly different story? Which version was correct? Which one was the REAL story? Actually, both are! It’s just a matter of perspective.
Joe takes the issues… especially the controversial issues (politics, prejudice, religion, illegal immigration)… and brings in people from different sides to share their viewpoint. This is definitely not a fluff piece. And while no one is attacked, the questions are hard-hitting.
But the conversation is always respectful and you’re sure to learn something new, even if you don’t agree!
If you’ve always wondered how the “other side” thinks and how they’ve arrived at their “stand”, then this is the show for you!
It’s not the right side, it’s not the wrong side, but the REAL side of the issues!
THE GREATEST EDUCATION YOU CAN GET IS A REAL RELIGIOUS ONE
I was blessed to have the benefit of a Real Catholic education, My kindergarten school was PS189. where I learned to spill paint on my coloring book. From there on it was St. Elizabeth's grammar school all nuns and one lay teacher. From there is was on to Bishop Du Bois High School. All priests and Marist brothers and one lay gym teacher. Totally religious exposure. Did I absorb religion like a blotter? What teenager does while hormones bubble? The gift I received was knowledge of right from wrong. You can call abortion choice but I know it is murder. God says through Moses thou shalt not kill period. Especially your own. Jesus says the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak.
So therefore knowing right from wrong does not qualify me to throw stones. However I do have an obligation to convince people in trouble from hurting their soul. The schools I was blessed to attend are no more. Convents and churches are up for sale. The same one dollar in the 50's collection basket is in the basket still. My grammar school education was free to parish members. My high school education was $12.00 a month. I had an after school job that paid $12.00 a week. Today big families three or more kids cannot afford a religious education for their children. Off they go to anti religious, anti American secular schools where teachers unions serve themselves first. Just like the fat golden calf government.
