Welcome once again to another episode of The Legion of Reason to risk your eternal soul to hellfire once again!
Ever wonder what you get when you put Matt Dillahunty and PZ Myers together with a round of double margaritas? Wonder no further! We sat down with them at Imagine No Religion 2 on the May long weekend. That’s later in the podcast. Several of the Legion were in attendence and we share our thoughts on the experience.
We also look at how the Ontario government violating the right of Catholic school boards to prohibit using the words “gay straight alliance” as a student club description. Oh, of course! That was NEVER their right!
But first Graham talks about money, nakedness and how those Canadians deficient in their own history see one in the other in the soon-to-come-out Canadian 20 dollar bill. It seems people will find any way go get offended over anything…

This episode has a decidedly atheist theme. When Ashu Solo attended a dinner intended to show appreciation for City of Saskatoon volunteers he did not expect prayer from a public official to be on the menu. We spoke to Ashu about the incident and his complaint to the Saskatchewan Human Rights Commission. I have an editorial at the end of the episode on why – contrary to the opinions of some – this is an important case.
Also, a number of us attended the Imagine No Religion 2 this past May long weekend and a great time was had by all. Among the speakers was The Thinking Atheist, Seth Andrews, who was gracious enough to lend us some of his time and thoughts on atheism.
