God of the week: Chernobog

Interview Part 1: Friend of the show, Andrew Seidel! Andrew is an attorney for the Freedom From Religion Foundation and is quickly becoming a regular guest on the show. We talked to him about the shirt the Westboro Baptist Church loved, the entirely non-0ffensive Nebraska Atheists billboard that was taken down, and about our next guest, Jeff Prebeg.

Follow Andrew on Twitter as @AndrewLSeidel!

Interview Part 2: Jeff Prebeg, aka Pittsburgh Atheist! Jeff recently had a run-in of sorts regarding an atheist slogan on his license plate. Follow Jeff on Twitter as @PittAtheist!

Why we love the internet: The Pope on Twitter. In bed.

Quote of the Week: “Our belief is not a belief. Our principles are not a faith. We do not rely soley upon science and reason, because these are necessary rather than sufficient factors, but we distrust anything that contradicts science or outrages reason. We may differ on many things, but what we respect is free inquiry, openmindedness, and the pursuit of ideas for their own sake.” (Christopher Hitchens)
