[NOTE: When I originally did this show, I had no idea that the guy was busting such asshat moves in the xtian homophobic kook circles--but the content of this science-vs-religion sermon stands far and away from that bullshittery. ]

I found this tape while I was looking for a lost disc, and was I ever happy! Orson Scott Card (yep, THAT guy!) delivered these powerhouse sermons at SF Cons in the '80s, and they were a rapturous joy for the thinking man. Having heard that Secular Humanism was a religion, he thought there might be room for a secular humanist evangelist, so he wrote his SECULAR HUMANIST REVIVAL MEETING and began putting on performances. Styled on old tent revivals, Card took them a step further, arguing for logic and reason within the concept of religion that reconciles them both. All I can say is HALLEFUCKINGLUJAH!

True, the first side of the tape was a bit hinky after 25 years. I fixed it where I could, but I wouldn't recommend headphones. Still, this man's ideas ring so true and real that it's worth bearing with a little truly minor mushiness here and there in the first half. The last side of the cassette was nice and crisp.
