The Old Testament is notorious for its stories of violence, genocide and atrocity condoned by a fictive god. This alleged scripture is especially heinous to women, and the New Testament offers no refuge, as it advocates a subservient role for women and condones Old Testament barbarism. I discuss both the biblical abuse and Christianity’s ongoing threat toward women today with my guest, Annie Laurie Gaylor. Gaylor is co-president of the Freedom from Religion Foundation. Our talk features one of Gaylor’s books, Woe to the Women: The Bible Tells Me So, published in 1981, a guide to the Bible’s mistreatment of women.

Advocating for the Non-Religious Through Growing Pains & Good Humor

Dan Barker, co-president of the Freedom from Religion Foundation with Annie Laurie Gaylor, joins me for a humorous and informative interview. Barker discusses current church and state lawsuits, examines issues concerning nonbelievers, and reveals the foundation’s growing pains. We even share a few jokes. The foundation, based in Madison, Wisconsin, is a non-profit organization that advocates for non-theists, promotes separation of church and state, and educates the public on atheistic, agnostic and nontheistic issues. Barker is a contributing editor of Freethought Today, a newspaper published by the foundation, and is involved with the foundation’s state/church lawsuits. He regularly travels the country and the world giving lectures, performing concerts, and participating in debates with theists, many at college and university campuses. Both Barker and Gaylor co-host Freethought Radio, a national weekly talkshow on the Air America network.
