Secular progressives rejoice! This weekend, Air America Radio launched Freethought Radio (airamerica.com/freethoughtradio), a show just for the large percent of liberals who are atheists or agnostics.
The hosts are Dan Barker and Annie Laurie Gaylor, co-presidents of the Freedom From Religion Foundation in Madison, Wisconsin (ffrf.org). That organization has done much good work that liberals should take pride in, such as "overturning a state Good Friday holiday", "halting the Post Office from issuing religious cancellations", and more (ffrf.org/legal)! Plus, they're part of the Secular Coalition (secular.org; "Atheists. Humanists. Freethinkers. Americans.")!
The first show even featured a distinguished guest: Christopher Hitchens, author of the bestselling "God Is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything."
This is all great, but I need to point out to my reactionary readers that they aren't "Satanists". The latter people worship a god, just not God. So, most likely not all of their members are Satanists. And, I need to point out that this has already been tried. But, just because it didn't work out perfectly OK the first time doesn't mean that liberals shouldn't keep trying.
