A Raffle to Help the National Atheist Party
by Noah Lugeons
Got an email last night from an author I admire quite a bit. Darrel Ray, author of The God Virus and more recently of Sex & God: How Religion Distorts Sexuality dropped me a line to let me know he was digging the first few episodes of the podcast. I was understandably flattered, as I’ve been a fan of his work since a friend gifted my a copy of The God Virus back in 2010. I haven’t caught up with his latest, but from what I understand it’s something like Letters to a Christian Nation meets 50 Shades of Grey (that’s not really what it is at all, by the way).
Anyway, I’m not just writing this blog to brag that Darrel Ray listens to the show. That’s just an ancillary benefit. The real reason I’m sharing this with you is to share something he shared with me, in hopes that I can spur you to action. The National Atheist Party has been doing some spectacular cat-herding of late and like many noble efforts in the atheist community, they need all the help they can get.
If you’d like to do a little something for the community and possibly get a little something back for yourself, I encourage you to check out this raffle. The winner will get an autographed first edition copy of Darrel Ray’s new book and everyone else will get the satisfaction that comes with helping swing the political system in the US away from the theocratic precipice it’s balancing on. And I should note that this goal is every bit as important to my international readers as it is to those in the good ol’ US of A.
