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