Last week I was interviewed by Gugu on Talk at Nine on Talks Radio 702. The producer of the show initially contacted me and told me that they wanted to talk about the recent news articles about the pastor in Pretoria who was feeding his congregation snakes and rats and riding them like horses, as well as about how one would break free from a cult like that and ‘recover from religion’. Thank goodness we ended up talking more about atheism, non-belief and South African Secular Society in the end! Although there was one irritating aspect in that there was a crazy creationist caller who called in at the end and then we ran out of time, so I could not respond to him (outrage!!!). Other than that I had the usual ‘God loves you’ from a Christian caller, and an atheist who thanked God he was an atheist.
