The Fog of Faith - Surviving My Impotent God with Author Leona Stucky

May 15th, 2018

00:0000:00

Join us this episode with our guest, author Leona Stucky.

About Leona Stucky www.leonastucky.com
Dr. Stucky first received a degree in psychology and philosophy from Boston College, graduating summa cum laude, before plunging into seminary, first at Andover Newton Theological School and then at Eden Theological Seminary. She earned a doctorate from Southern Methodist University with honors, and a Diplomate certificate from the American Association of Pastoral Counselors—their highest credential—for teaching, supervising, and offering therapy services. She currently has standing as a Unitarian Universalist community minister.

About her Memoir: The Fog ofFaith

The Fog of Faith is a suspenseful and morally unflinching drama of shame and survival, as well as usable and unusual wisdom. Leona is cast into a bewildering life of disgrace and poverty—with a baby, a violent husband, and battered faith. Through a series of page-turning events, she hacks through the bones of her naïveté to confront harsh realities and to probe the veracity of the religious claims she'd grown up with in her Mennonite community in rural Kansas. Each step of the gripping story grounds itself in nuanced networks of passion, relational complexities, cultural and religious dilemmas, circumscribed choices bound by woman’s poverty, persistent violence, and an untamable resilient desire to redeem herself.

Separation of Church and State - Sex Education in Public Schools - Consent - with Sally Buxbaum Hunt

April 26th, 2018

00:0000:00

Disclaimer: Yes, we're going to talk about religion today with Sally Hunt, who was recently featured on Fox News. We respect everyone's right to their own beliefs and values, but Angela and I feel it important that a government for the people, by the people, represent all of the people, no matter their creed, gender, or belief system. We do talk about sex for a lot of the episode, but if you wish to skip most of the religious topics, skip ahead to around the 30 minute mark.

 

Our guest today is Sally Buxbaum Hunt, also known as the Passionate Atheist. She was recently featured on Fox News to discuss the separation of church and state. We ask her about that experience, from what happened at the Wentzville City hall to her interview with Laura Ingraham on Fox. We also discuss consent and sex education in public schools. This is actually Sally's second appearance on our show. In her first appearance, we focused mostly on sex education in public schools. You can find that interview here. We hope you enjoy listening to the episode as much as we enjoyed making it.

Sally founded the group, Expose Thrive, which successfully got Thrive’s “Best Choice” abstinence-only, shame-based & fear-based program removed from 16 local public school districts. Sally is also known for recently speaking in opposition to a large ‘In God We Trust’ display at city hall in Wentzville, Missouri, and then being thrown out of the meeting by the mayor due to her comments. Sally has gotten a great deal of media attention for her opposition to the 'In God We Trust' display, including an appearance on the Fox News show, The Ingraham Angle. The ACLU has filed a lawsuit against the city of Wentzville on Sally’s behalf. Sally has a master’s in counseling, 6 years’ experience as a school counselor, and will be entering the counseling PhD program in the fall.
