Secular Sexuality is a weekly call-in show live from Austin, Texas every Thursday at 7pm CT. Call us at 1-512-686-0279. We talk about sex from a secular perspective. Sex and sexuality are natural to all living creatures but religion takes this and twists it into something awful and to be ashamed of. Acceptance, education, and fun is what we strive for. We lay the intersection of sex and religion (and occasionally ourselves) bare, openly and honestly. We discuss a wide range of topics each we ...
 
There is a well organized and well funded effort to gut the Bill of Rights in this country and in the age of Trump, secular people seem to taking it on the chin more often. Secular Left is meant to be the light in the fog of Christian Nationalism supporting the idea that toxic religious belief is the root of most social justice issues today.
 
Throughout history, freethinkers have outraged the religious with their wacky ideas about the virtues of free speech, reason, and, of course, eating babies. Now, God is dying—and it's time to dispose of his remains. From the pits of Hell, Satan sends two puppets of the imperialist West and the Zionist Jews against God, Islam, and tiny kittens to bring you their propaganda and conspire for a new world order. This is Secular Jihadists for a Muslim Enlightenment—with Ali Rizvi and Armin Navabi.
 
PSF, Promoting Secular Feminism, is a podcast, blog, and community which stands at the intersection of secular humanism and intersectional feminism, with a heaping dose of comedy. Meet host Ms Bea Haven and correspondents, Ms Ann Thrope, Bella Constrictor, Madonna deHeaux, Frida Nipple, and Maura Borshuns as they take on subjects from menstruation to religion to politics, all with a witty sense of humor and a sharp wit.
 
Our internet-accelerated society has experienced a fraying of our social bonds. We experience a sense of instability and uncertainty. By drawing on wisdom from the religious traditions, embodied in literature and art, we can supplement our impoverished public discourse. Moreover, we maintain a commitment to our multi-cultural reality, putting collaborative pluralism, weaving, at the center. We can fight a culture of constant distraction and build up our capacity to contemplate and think deep ...

Ink-blots, enneagrams, eye movements, meditations… what even is good therapy? Brains are tricky, as it turns out, and while the field of psychology isn’t exactly new, we have a terribly long way to go.

While Alcoholics Anonymous is not affiliated with Al-Anon or other peer to peer support—including 12-step fellowships—there has always been cooperation, since our early days. Today, many of us fall prey to more than affliction, simultaneously or one addiction at a time. Friends we haven’t met yet await us in many mutual-aid groups. At the 2021 Inte…
 
“Why has somebody like Slavoj Žižek with his Lacanian atheism and cynicism a better purchase on the essence of Pauline Christianity? It’s because there is a tragic ground to Christianity. Tragedy and hopelessness is the prolegomena, it’s the port of entry into Christianity.” In this episode of the Secular Christ, Philosophy and Theology professor, …

Each and every week we end by reminding you to take a quiet moment to yourself and show yourself some love, so it should come as no surprise that self-compassion is big in our book.

So much of what we take as biological fact is actually just culture, and I’m tired of pretending it’s not. But if cultures are like families- you’re stuck with the one you’re born with until you build another, then why not get to work?
