God of the week: A story (as always, but this time told by Nat)

Interview: Tonight we are thrilled to be joined by Kevin Davis, the founder of Young Skeptics and the head writer of Secular Voices for Patheos. Kevin is also the author of Understanding an Atheist: A Practical Guide to Relating to Nonbelievers (Get it at http://amzn.to/2oeDlRJ). Kevin’s activism is focused on attacking the social stigma that accompanies being openly nonreligious, as well as advocating for children against the harms that aggressive indoctrination can cause.
