For this episode, we were joined by Reed Braden, who writes the blog "Unorthodox Atheism," and is also the co-host of the "Two Smokin' Hot Freethinkers" podcast. Reed has recently come out both as an atheist and as a homosexual, giving him a valuable perspective for this discussion (or, as he phrased it, making him the 'token gay').

Some of the questions in this podcast included:
  1. What can you tell us about the experience of being a homosexual within and without of the Christian worldview?
  2. What is the mainstream Christian approach to homosexuality?
  3. What does the Bible tell us about homosexuality?
  4. How do atheists and nonbelievers approach homosexuality?
  5. How have your views towards homosexuality changed since leaving Christianity?
  6. Is it possible that the Christian regard for homosexuality is changing, and will become a non-issue in the future?
Feel free to continue this discussion in the comments below.
