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.
