Andrew L. Seidel, Author and Attorney – Episode 65

On September 7, 2019 Andrew Seidel visited the Secular Hub and spoke to a packed house.  The Hubcast was on hand to catch his talk as well as the audience participation time afterward.

Andrew Seidel has been working with Freedom From Religion Foundation for years and has come to be posted as the Director of Strategic Response.  As a trial lawyer he has argued successfully in favor of free speech and the separation of church and state.

In his new book, The Founding Myth, Why Christian Nationalism is Un-American, Andrew discusses his research on our nation’s beginnings, what was happening in America at the time, and what it means for us today.  This was a fantastic event at the Hub and we at the Hubcast are proud to present the audio from this great event.

GUESTS:

From Freedom From Religion Foundation, Director of Strategic Response, Andrew Seidel

From Denver Metro FFRF Chapter,  Claudette and Joel

Oh, Are We Ready? – Episode 64

Some events at the Secular Hub are just an absolute delight to go to, and everyone who attends helps a worthy cause at the same time.  This week on the Secular Hub, Jesse attends the Hub’s annual chili cook-off and conducts a few casual interviews with some of the attendees.  It’s a slice of life from our fun times.

The Secular Volunteer Corps organized and hosted, and the proceeds of the fundraiser are being directed to Heart 9/11.  All together we raised over $300 to donate to this great charity.

I’ve always felt that the Hub should be a source of power and support to other organizations, so it was delightful to participate in such a great event.  Thanks Monique for organizing and running this thing!

Episode 56 – Guns and the 2nd Amendment: Carving a Path Through

Join us for this diverse episode featuring Jesse Gilbertson, Chris Shelton and Melissa Shelton as we walk the rocky path of guns, gun ownership and the Second Amendment. In this episode we talk straight about gun rights, the moral implications of guns and what we think are the best solutions for how to solve our nations gun issues. The conversation takes twists and turns and sometimes even goes in circles as we test out our critical thinking skills. Hopefully, by the end you’ll have a clear understanding of the issues, where you stand on the subject and where we stand. I want to thank Jesse, Chris and Mel for putting up with all my questions and thought experiments as I know they are not everyone’s favorite exercise. I hope that it was all worth going through in order to fully flush out exactly what our values are regarding guns and how we came to our final conclusions. Please come down to the Secular Hub next Sunday at 10am for coffee and community and if want to discuss it further, I’m all ears.

Episode 40 – Feeding on the News 2

News.

It pours down upon us in an endless stream, relentless and ruthless.  It can drive one to withdraw and say “To HELL with the world.  I’m not paying attention anymore!”

But it’s my world, too, and yours. So it’s on all of us to care, to pay attention.  Join us, pay attention and form your own opinions.  The propaganda out there is strong, the antidote is alertness and vigilange.

Join us.

Hosts:  Jesse Gilbertson, Paul Schilling, Melissa Huff, Chauncey Williams

Episode 11 – American Millenials

Some come to atheism/freethought late in life while others are born into it.  Some poor few never get there at all.  Does America’s newest generation of adults, the Millenials, represent a growing body of nonbelievers or a swing back to a more fundamentalist worldview?

In this panel discussion hosted by Chauncey our Millenial panel discusses faith, the transition from it, and a new worldview which is evidence based.  Is the world becoming more rational or is the pendulum moving back toward fundamentalism?  What do the changes we see in society say about us as a people?
