Show #5 Sapient explains his religious upbringing and then the gang hosts a Christian for a discussion
This show starts with Sapient talking about losing his mother to religion and her hypocritical ways. It's this loss that fueled the adult activism of Sapient, in hopes that other children wouldn't have to experience the same loss. Sapient gives props to The Infidel Guy and talks about how he'll be fighting theism for the rest of his life. (3-12 minutes)
13-22 minutes: Should atheists speak up against religion. Are we heading towards a theocracy? Is respecting a persons ludicrous beliefs, actually disrespectful?
23 minutes JJ the Christian comes on to discuss god belief with us.
Covered in discussion:

Bill O'Reilly says run from people who believe in god and calls them irrational and neurotic.
What is the evidence for God?
Do we really have free will? Is everything predetermined?
Would you bring a child into existence knowing it would soon be in pain for many years?
Why didn't god foresee ahead of time that he would need to come down to earth as himself to sacrifice himself to himself so that others could escape his wrath?
