The Boy Scouts may be considering allowing gays, but they still deserve a Badge of Dishonor for excluding atheists. On Freethought Radio, Annie Laurie and Dan discuss FFRF’s Action Alert about the Boy Scouts, complaints about religion in schools, vouchers for religious schools and patriarchal religious attitudes toward women. Then, to celebrate Darwin’s upcoming birthday, they interview biology professor Jerry Coyne, author of Why Evolution Is True.  Then, from the show “On Point” hosted by Tom Ashbrook, we hear an interview of author and historian Susan Jacoby about her new biography of the great american freethinkier Robert Green Ingersoll entitled “The Great Agnostic: Robert Ingersoll and American Freethought.”  Finally, the hosts of the Skeptic’s Guide to the Universe give us some background on the pseudoscientific discipline of chiropractic.
