Friendly Atheist Podcast Episode 84: Chaz Stevens, Atheist Provocateur

Our latest podcast guest is Chaz Stevens, an activist who’s especially passionate about the First Amendment.

Stevens is an activist who’s especially passionate about the First Amendment. In response to a Nativity scene in the Florida Capitol Building last year, he put up an 8-foot-tall Festivus pole made of Pabst Blue Ribbon cans. This year, he’s attempting something similar with a 6-foot pole covered in rainbow colors.

He has also been requesting to deliver invocations as a Satanist, forcing several city councils to abandon the prayer practice altogether.

I spoke with him about what a Satanist invocation would look like if he ever got to deliver one, why he prefers an over-the-top approach, and what he hopes to accomplish with his activism.
