One Response to Podcast #94 – John W. Loftus (The Christian Delusion)

  1. At the end of the podcast John was talking about the christian references by his boss and her boss. Hang in there, I’m not in the bible belt but my boss is the same way. Why can’t some people in management understand how it must make their employees feel when confronted by their religious beliefs? I have to bit my tongue regularly and it sucks. I don’t think it’s going to score any points with management to tell them I think their religious beliefs are no more better than primitive superstition.
