Reason Podcast is an internet radio show, hosted by Joshua Billingsley-Cooke and Paul Wittmeyer of The Atheist Community of Buffalo and Western New York, and broadcast live from Buffalo every Sunday at 8 p.m. It is a weekly discussion of events, current and historical, from a skeptical and rational perspective without theological bias.
Last night’s show centered on mass murders and the complications surrounding them. As everyone knows, a shooting took place in an Aurora, Colorado theater during the premiere of the new Batman movie. James Holmes is the main suspect of what is the worst shooting in U.S. history. His name is mentioned here because Josh and Paul made it a point to ignore him. Their aim was to not elevate him to a position of fame. Well done.
One common occurrence is the talk of mental disturbance. According to CNN, Holmes was the patient of a University of Colorado psychiatrist, so this is no exception.
Also in the news, Chick-fil-A only supports the biblical definition of marriage. That is, it can only be between a man and a woman. As a result, a lot of people are no longer eating at Chick-fil-A. The mayor of Boston even went so far as to write a letter to them expressing his distaste at having the chain expand into his city.
You can hear the full discussions about those topics and the one about Van Halen, here.
