Ask an Atheist with Sam Mulvey

Ask an Atheist wants YOU! … Again!?

Not Uncle Sam, But Sam NonethelessThis time, to tell us about your experiences as an atheist in the workplace.  Did you work in an explicitly religious company and have weird experiences?  Were you ousted for your lack of faith?  Did you have a strange boss?  Or have you been too afraid of what would happen to your career if you chose to be public about your atheism?   If you have these stories, there are several ways to contact us:

  • Call our voicemail line (206) 420-0997 and leave concise message with your anecdote or question, and it might just be played on the air
  • Click that big red candy-like button up top to submit not only your question but also your story of struggle, survival, or hilarity
  • Call in live on September 4th between 3 and 4 pm PDT
  • Direct others to this post if you think they’d like to participate.

Send us a note!

And I totally didn’t steal the format for this post from Becky at all!

I sent a message via the red Ask a Question button, but I think it might have been too long. After I sent it, the preview box cut off probably half of my story. Bah. Should I just do it here instead?


I got it. You’re fine.


i sent one too. it looked cut off. I hope the rest went in it.


The strangest thing that happened to me at work after everyone discovered I’m an atheist was they stopped saying, “Bless you,” after I sneeze.


Hey, party people! I called in and left a voicemail. I’m going to be in Yellowstone on the 4th (leg 1 of the Rad Trip) so I can’t call in when you’re on the air. But I hope you find my voicemail useful or at least entertaining.

I’m excited to be back on the air on the 18th! 🙂

I go to the top religious institution in Ireland and i’ve found that they ridicule atheists for using reason and consider them to be less intelligent than people of faith. Students are encouraged to pray for their problems to go away rather than tackle them and although people without faith are ‘welcome’ they are often made to feel left out by students and teachers alike.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
