  6. Today is a very special episode about an ex-Muslim's deconversion to atheism, while living in Iran. His story is so important to share! He grew up in Iran in a Shia Muslim family. He was a devout Muslim until he got curious about Salman Rushdie's book, The Satanic Verses. His curiosity leads him to banned anti-islam websites. He reads articles and books, eventually realizing he's an atheist. Muhammad began to spread anti-islam materials on websites and social media. After 3 years, he is caught and aggressively arrested on the street. He spends time in prison and solitary confinement. His parents put their house up for bail and he is forced to repent and make a false confession, which airs on Youtube and Islamic Republic television. While on bail, he is eventually called back for the trial and an inevitable 15 years in prison. He decides he must escape Iran. View the full article

  11. Jordan grew up going to church every Sunday with his family. He went to Bible studies and lived a typical Christian life. When he was junior high age, his family stopped attending church regularly. As Jordan grew older, he struggled balancing his church friendships along with his non-church friendships. He didn't want to live a double life. His faith becomes more serious and he discovers Calvinist theology. At first, he embraces it. Later, he begins to question more than just Calvinism. The difficult process of deconstructing his faith leads to agnosticism. View the full article

  13. Wishing everyone a tremendous day with people they enjoy.
  14. You are as old as I and should remember that not long ago there were immigration laws that were strictly enforced. As it stands lately, many of those same laws are still on the books but are largely ignored. As far as having to deal with emotionally charged opinions that contradict my or your emotionally charged opinions, that's one of the privileges (frustrations) of living under the flag of freedom. Until the laws of the land that we dislike are changed, I guess we will just have to (as much as possible) tolerate certain differences of opinions. Or, we can decide to be aggressively derogatory and rude to each other without restraint, though I doubt that approach will ever effect much positive change.
  15. I'll look at your link when able. Thx. I have nothing against immigration. Every person alive in almost every country could be labled as progeny of immigrants. So what? The immigration laws or lack of laws in previous eras have no relevance to current law. Ex: For hundreds of years in the US (and in many countries) it was lawful to own slaves. Back on topic: The laws regarding immigration in 1650 were very different from today, and bending or breaking those laws during that time was punishable by death. All I am saying is that for any of these hot topic dicussions, the current laws are where the discussion belongs. We are supposed to be a nation of laws. If the laws are outdated, let's by all means change them. Until then, anarchy isn't a viable option.
  16. Although that statement may be true, I challenge you to provide the supporting data. My ancestors have been in the US since the middle 17th century. I can't begin to understand what ancient history has to do with current affairs, but your angry opinion is noted.

  21. Gidday Listeners! My first guest from Australian shares his fascinating journey out of Christianity. He was raised in a typical Methodist Christian home in a small Township in Australia. His dad was a brickmaker and his mother a homemaker. He was raised going to Sunday school. His dad attended prayer groups during the week and his mom went to women's church groups. As a young teenager he was listening to a Fundamentalist preacher when a blasphemous thought entered his mind. Instantly he knew he was damned and going to hell. He couldn't dare tell anyone, as this may confirm his terrible reality. He kept all this to himself. He lived his day-to-day life, but every so often was reminded of his terrible fate. This thought tormented him for years. A few years later he's invited to a meeting with the Christadelphians. As a Methodist, he was viewed as a damnable heretic. Conversely, he viewed them that way too. Following an intense discussion he has a realization and finally finds relief. I loved his message to embrace the things we don't know. This is a huge part of what brings me peace as an atheist too. It's ok to not know or understand everything. It's the mystery of life that brings wonder and awe. It also leaves us with so much to discover in our world. In difficult times, we gather comfort from something Roland reminded me near the end of our talk: We're in it together! View the full article
