I hear so often that the angry atheist isn't helping the movement. Being angry doesn't help our position or cause. It doesn't push the conversation forward. It doesn't help move people away from faith or belief. It only serves to fortify the religious in their rut of superstitious ideas.
Or does it? When I was a believer, I got angry at all the caustic atheists, and wanted to prove them wrong. Doing so moved me to atheism. I realized that the jerk may be a jerk, but he was also right.
Let's talk about the different ways people talk about atheism and within the atheism movement. Are the mean, angry atheists helping?
Plus your calls. Let the awesomeness wash over you.

Teenagers go through so much during this time in their lives. Everything is changing, they are finding their own voice, and they are becomming their own person. They have independent thoughts and feelings. One thing that a lot of teens are going through now is growing up without religion or even coming to the realzation on their own that there is no god.
Tonight's show, I will be interviewing a 14 year old, self-proclaimed agnostic atheist and what it is like going to Middle School as an atheist. Is he open about it? How do his peers view him? Does he think it matters? You will hear his thoughts and feelings on this issue!
The Greatest Black Atheist was the original subtitle of this podcast as a whole.
When I first started, that was how I branded myself and that was the type of news and commentary I wanted to bring to the table.
Now I'm all over the place, but this year, I'll be gradually going back to that place of representing Black Atheist visibility with a leftist, social justice slant.
Today we'll get into some news about a Chinese man that paid for a spa treatment with his daughter...
Like really. He used his daughter as currency.
Sandy Rios attacks evolution and I respond.
The voters are getting sued for voting.
That's right. If you vote against red light cameras that can be used as a revenue generator, you will see your day in court.
And of course we have nonsense in social justice and I'll jump on that in the second hour.
Let's get to work.
Get Turned up tonight with the Thinking Team as Brandon & Arvelle Draper talk about how do we create momemtum in our lives when we have been defeated so many times before. Life keeps hitting you and never lets up but do you have what it takes to overcome. Never allow your low to define who you are, just know that it is not over until you win. So you must prepare for the storm so that you will not lose any momentum through the chaos.
Please join us Sunday 10AM CST as we discuss the hate crime that took place this week. For those unaware, three Muslim students were murdered over an alleged parking dispute. The murderer entered the home of the students and killed them execution style. The media and police are hesitant to call it a hate crime. The atheist community are attempting to distance themselves from this matter. I am seeing 'No True Scotsman' fallacies everywhere.
I find it interesting that when it's a white person, they are judged as individuals. People are claiming that this domestic terrorist was mentally ill and a lone wolf. However, people of color are judged as groups and made accountable for the actions of individuals. This double standard has been prevalent in this community.
We will discuss how the atheist community has created and cultivated a toxic environment. We have been calling this community out about the Islamophobia, racism, sexism, homophobia, etc.; yet, it has not been addressed. The mainstream atheist organizations have ignored the warning signs and have even attempted to make excuses for the bigotry.
We spoke about this matter extensively on our TwitterChat and you can find more details here. We want to continue this much needed discussion. There will b more discussion on this in the future.
The dial in number is 310-982-4273 and press 1 to speak with the hosts.
In today's society, if we are not careful, we can become subject to other's thoughts and opinions about us. When we become subject to them we become limited to them, only to find ourselves in a place of doubting our capabilities and even the God that we serve. In this, it creates fear, depression, oppression, and even imprisionment. On this morning, Pastor Douglas is going to give you the principles of thinking outside of the box. Stay Tuned for this series, I feel God is going to break some chains and allow you to rebuild with the stones that have been thrown your way. YES, it can be done and even better it's working for your good.
