Atheist News Podcast Project




Hey guys.

I probably shouldn't put this off anymore, so I'm just going to jump on it and improvise. I'm pretty sure the show is over. It was a ton of fun doing it, but with work and my son and my wife in school I simply don't have time to do it anymore.

Other folks have offered to take over but I don't really feel comfortable with that. Quit while you're ahead, sez I.

Anyhow, I payed for another year of hosting, so the archive of podcasts will be available for at least that long.

I really enjoyed podcasting, so I might do something again in the future. I'll keep you posted.

Thanks guys and gals! It was AMAZING.

Love,

--Joe

"Faith and Freedom." Isn't that an oxymoron?

Haha @Pat, I thought the exact same thing!

"However, I think Reed is being totally disingenuous. I can't figure out why though."

Ha ha! nice sarcasm...

"entire interview is worth watching"

I recommend everybody go view that video (posted by Ralph Reed's Faith and Freedom Coalition YouTube channel) vote it thumbs down and leave a comment like I did.

Comment by Joe Tomberlin on April 9, 2012 at 9:52am

The entire interview is worth watching for more context. Cleaver certainly made a stoooopid comment that "I don't believe there is such a thing as an atheist because no respectable atheist ...", but otherwise he seems more honest with his opinion, and supportive of separation of church and state.

However, I think Reed is being totally disingenuous. I can't figure out why though.

@ MaleficVTwin I do, but only after I take a black Sharpie to that anti-American motto

Comment by MaleficVTwin on April 9, 2012 at 1:14am

No respectable atheist would walk around with something in his pocket that says 'In God We Trust'?

That man can kiss my ass. Should I choose to starve?

Tim Tebow To Deliver Easter Speech At Celebration Texas Church

1. Onward, Christian soldiers, marching as to war,
with the cross of Jesus going on before.
Christ, the royal Master, leads against the foe;
forward into battle see his banners go!
Refrain:
Onward, Christian soldiers, marching as to war,
with the cross of Jesus going on before.

2. At the sign of triumph Satan's host doth flee;
on then, Christian soldiers, on to victory!
Hell's foundations quiver at the shout of praise;
brothers, lift your voices, loud your anthems raise.
(Refrain)

3. Like a mighty army moves the church of God;
brothers, we are treading where the saints have trod.
We are not divided, all one body we,
one in hope and doctrine, one in charity.
(Refrain)

4. Crowns and thrones may perish, kingdoms rise and wane,
but the church of Jesus constant will remain.
Gates of hell can never gainst that church prevail;
we have Christ's own promise, and that cannot fail.
(Refrain)

5. Onward then, ye people, join our happy throng,
blend with ours your voices in the triumph song.
Glory, laud, and honor unto Christ the King,
this through countless ages men and angels sing.
(Refrain)

This would be quite perky if we could get some of our favorite politicians to sing it in a choir, sort of like "I'd like to teach the world to sing, in perfect harmony"
