My interview on WILK Newsradio discussing FFRF banner

I was invited to appear on WILK Newsradio‘s “Corbett” (hosted by Steve Corbett) on 12/21/12 to discuss the Freedom From Religion Foundation’s “Let reason prevail” banner which was placed on Public Square in Wilkes-Barre following city approval.

Discussed is vandalism of the banner by admitted vandal Joe McDonald, my police report, the process by which the banner was hung, the right for atheists to advertise during the holiday season, why the vandal has not been prosecuted, civil disagreement and discussion, and much more.

Corbett even says that I might have been burned at the stake if I had lived in Salem years ago. I replied saying people have called me “Witch of the Week” before :)
