Hi Charone;

I was checking your station's website - you're on Tuesdays at 6:00? Are you on at other times?

@ Eddie
There's a "listen live" button on the main page:

Charone I guess the lunacy of gays believing in Christianity is no different than blacks believing it. They used the bible to justify slavery just as they use it to justify their bigotry towards gays. BTW is your radio program available online? It sound interesting.

Hey folks :-)

I want to take some time out from playing games on my IPod to say hello and do a bit of an introduction,  My name is Charone. I live in the south, where I'm a producer and host of a radio program on a community radio station WRFG.  The program Lambda Radio Report is a progressive news program where one of the topics we cover on a regular bases is Atheism.  Whats great and surprising about talking atheism on the airways is that I have not received any hate mail or negative calls.  Most of the calls have been very positive.  A high percentage of  calls are from folks who have no other medium to talk about these issues. 

I am also a queer community organizer and perhaps another surprise is that black queers in the south are, for the most part, VERY VERY religious.  Trippy, I know. My goal for 2011 is to work towards organizing a group of non-believers queer and/or of color.  Well just a quickie to say hello and that I have enjoy reading the posts in the group


Peace & Reason.

Hello non-believers!

Thanks for posting this L.Hunter. I found the governor's remarks to be quite disturbing, especially during these current times when religious radicals view suicidal bombings as "martyrdom". These remarks are also extremely arrogant as they suggest that accepting "Jesus Christ" is the most superior way to live. Underneath this pitiful mindset, all non-christians and all non-theists would be considered inferior. Moreover, the governor seems to have little to no regard for the first amendment of the Constitution. I am subsequently worried that all Alabamian non-christians and non-theists will be thought of as second class citizens.
