My previous blog post discussed what seems to be an Establishment Clause violation in Scranton, PA. To quickly recap, the city of Scranton spent $50,000 to erect a memorial on city hall property which includes something titled “A Firefighter’s Prayer,” the unveiling ceremony included an evangelical priest who had given a benediction, and bagpipes that played “Amazing Grace.”

I appeared on ReapSowRadio — an internet radio show featuring hosts Reap Paden and Al Stefanelli — mainly to discuss this Establishment Clause issue, but also briefly speak about “The Year of the Bible,” the County of Lackawanna Transit System (COLTS) refusing the “Atheists.” ad I proposed to be placed on county buses, and other problems COLTS has been facing including fare increases, route closures, a former employee charged with sexual harassment, and the bus driver — Daniel Wittenbreder — who sent me threats. I appear around the 21 minute mark and sign off around the 42 minute mark.
