On this episode we tackle the subject of  "Feminism, Motherhood, and Religion: Does a good woman have to be a "godly" woman?"

Special guests for tomorrow's episode will be American academic, humanist and feminist Dr. Sikivu Hutchinson and Jamaican author, atheist, and teacher Zay D. Green. Sikivu is the author of Moral Combat: Black Atheists, Gender Politics, and the Values Wars (2011), while Zay is the author of Christianity and Black Oppression: Duppy Know Who Fe Frighten (2012).


This show is hosted by two of Jamaica's most outspoken secular humanists - Clive Forrester, linguist and professor at York University in Toronto, and Hilaire Sobers, human rights lawyer in Washington DC. We have spent copious amounts of time debating with and challening the notion that Christian privelege should proceed unchecked in Jamaica, and have successfully managed to rally a group of other secularists to collaborate on a publication (forthcoming 2013). This radio show provides a medium in which skeptics can discuss matters of science, critical thinking, religious imposition, and the seperation of church and state all from a Jamaican perspective, but playing close attention to the interconnectedness on the global landscape.

Tune in as we tackle the big questions each and every Sunday at 12:30EST (1:30PM Jamaican time) - lively banter, music and trivia, probing questions... we are Yardie Skeptics.  Contact us at yardieskeptics@gmail.com.
