God Likes to Watch: The Blaming and Shaming of Purity Culture
Main talk Summary:
Seth Andrews, host of "The Thinking Atheist" returns to Houston Oasis to talk about purity culture in the US.
Seth Andrews is a former evangelical and Christian broadcaster who now hosts The Thinking Atheist…one of the most popular podcasts and online atheist communities in the world. The Thinking Atheist is not a person. It is an icon encouraging all to reject faith and pursue reason and evidence.
Seth has authored five books, including his latest offering, Christianity Made Me Talk Like an Idiot. He also hosts a second podcast, True Stories with Seth Andrews.
With a mix of humor and heart, Seth Andrews has spoken for audiences large and small in the U.S, Canada, Europe, and Australia about his former faith, the promotion of science and skepticism, the importance of Humanism in this often crazy world, and why we should all pursue a personal relationship with reality..
Musician Bio :
Singer/Songwriter, J. Dewveall, is the irreverent chaplain of Americana music. Obsessed with existential stuff, he doesn’t just make music, he sings practical theology in E-flat minor. His brand of comfort blues, rock, and country soul provides a soundtrack to exploring life’s big questions, rooted in human experience and emotion.
Dewveall is a native Texan, from the Houston area, but has called Nashville, TN home since 2008, and the American South has certainly given him a backdrop on which to build his musical philosophy. He pushes the boundaries of comfort when tackling questions about faith, beliefs, and society, delivering lyrics with the grit of bands like Drive-by Truckers, but sung with honey on the tongue, like Chris Stapleton.
We are back to our regular start time of 10:30 AM. Doors open at 10:00 AM
