‘Freethought Matters’ fall season begins!
Starting on Sunday, Sept. 3, and airing in 13 cities, the new season of FFRF’s lively weekly TV show “Freethought Matters” begins.
The first episode features an entertaining interview with pithy Texas iconoclast Jim Hightower (who will also be speaking at FFRF’s national convention in San Antonio in October).
Other timely guests include Sam Perry, co-author of the new book, The Flag and the Cross: White Christian Nationalism and the Threat to American Democracy. Professor Anthea Butler, author of White Evangelical Racism, and Power Worshippers author Katherine Stewart, also warn about the growing dangers of White Christian nationalism. Chicago Law School Professor Geoffrey Stone, who clerked for Justice Joseph Brennan, critiques the Supreme court’s reversal of Roe v. Wade and recounts the history that led up to Roe.
For a lighter change of pace, “Freethought Matters” co-hosts Dan Barker and Annie Laurie Gaylor interview actress Randa Black, winner of FFRF’s “Nothing Fails Like Prayer” contest for her freethought invocation before a Florida city.
