Ask an Atheist with Sam Mulvey

Well, At Least We Still Beat Mark Driscoll.

The results are in for the Best of Western Washington, and well….it’s not us.

However, we’re incredibly proud of our strong Second Place showing in a contest that had us beating out a number of popular and well-established local podcasts and radio programs.  We’ve known for sometime that it was going to be a tortoise-and-the-hare contest.

In this case, the hare woke up and noticed that there was a race and sped to the finish line in the last two weeks of the voting period. Congratulations to TBTL with Luke Burbank for their win!

The entire cast and crew of Ask an Atheist want to thank all of you who took the time to vote, promote us and share your votes on Facebook and Twitter. We’re consistently floored by the number of people who tune in to our show *ahem* religiously.

We may not have won this year, but this is an annual contest and I see no reason why we can’t be king of the hill in 2012!

However, if it’s any consolation, our little godless radio show’s vote total completely eclipsed the total won by the podcast of the fundamentalist Mars Hill mega-church run by the same bigoted assclown who recently claimed that masturbation is a form of homosexuality. So be relieved that the junk-obsessed fanatic who wrote this pearl of wisdom…

“…Masturbation can be a form of homosexuality because it is a sexual act that does not involve a woman. If a man were to masturbate while engaged in other forms of sexual intimacy with his wife then he would not be doing so in a homosexual way. However, any man who does so without his wife in the room is bordering on homosexuality activity, particularly if he’s watching himself in a mirror and being turned on by his own male body.”

…came in 11th Place. And damn, if that last bit of information isn’t a wee bit too specific.  He’ll be in his bunk.

Thanks again for your votes!
