The Secular Perspective
You’re Not Alone, Secular Meet-ups (Anthony and Chad)

A few weeks ago, Anthony and Chad attended a meetup.com event for an atheist group. We wanted to break down our experience and encourage you all to reach out to a similar group; especially if you have to conceal your beliefs for any reason. Also, Anthony joined the Freedom From Religion Foundation to further reach out to the secular community, and he tells you about the benefits of doing so. Let us know what you think, and enjoy!

Heathen Hodgepodge 2: Electric Boogaloo (Anthony, Chad, and Matt)

This is the second half of our first hodgepodge episode (awesome title, right?!). The guys bring up all kinds of fun topics like how Jesus is similar to Superman, Hobby Lobby’s continual desire for American theocracy, our disappointment in Pope Francis’ recent comments on childless marriages, one of the best trolls of all time at the Oklahoma Statehouse, and a recent discovery at a Catholic seminary in Ireland that really got to Anthony.
