American Atheists Viewpoint
About This Show
Hello. My name is August Berkshire.
I serve on the national board of directors of American Atheists and I’m also on the board of directors of Minnesota Atheists.
I’m pleased to announce the start of a weekly, eight-minute podcast called “The American Atheists Viewpoint”. It is slated to start August 7, 2016.
It will feature American Atheists leaders, such as president Dave Silverman and legal council and lobbyist Amanda Knief, discussing what American Atheists has been up to lately and their plans going forward.
So please subscribe to “The American Atheists Viewpoint” podcast on iTunes to keep up-to-date on what’s happening with our country’s oldest atheist organization!
This podcast is being facilitated by Minnesota Atheists, a Local Partner of American Atheists.

Ep 16 Cabinet Appointments & 1st Amendment Defense Act
Sunday November 20, 2016 Nick begins by giving us a brief primer on Presidential-elect Donald Trump's newest cabinet appointment. He has nominated Jeff Sessions for US Attorney General who, based on statements in the past, apparently believes that to have both a sense of reality and a sense of morality you must be sufficiently religious. Nick then goes on to explain the 1st Amendment Defense Act which is a bill that would prohibit the federal government from taking actions against any business, person, or organization that discriminates against individuals identifying as LGBTQIAA. American Atheists is a national 501(c)(3) organization that defends civil rights for atheists, freethinkers, and other nonbelievers; works for the total separation of religion and government; and addresses issues of First Amendment public policy.
