Definitions Proposed by The Fist

Social Muslim

A Muslim by name only. Yes believe in Allah and that Mohammed is the one true prophet but don’t think about it much. You eat anything and drink alcohol. You joke about showing people your prayer room which turns out to be a wine cellar. Women can wear anything. Your kids go to a non-Muslim school and you wouldn’t care who they marry.

Muslim Lite

You pray a little, fast occasionally and visit the mosque but not every week. Ladies should wear a hijab and kids must marry a Muslim. You are not interested in whether non-Muslims observe the faith and you don’t care about Jews and gays. You have some friends who are non-Muslim.

By the Book Muslim

You observe the doctrines quite strictly. You are offended by non-Muslims who do not observe Islam. Women preferably wear a burqa or a niqab. Blasphemy should be punished. You pray five times a day and you insist that your workplace make special arrangements to cater for your religious needs. You have no non-Muslim friends. You go to the mosque every week. You hate Jews. Your children must go to an Islamic school.

Killing can be ok Muslim

A By the Book Muslim who thinks that in some circumstances suicide bombing of civilian targets to defend Islam can be justified or that honour killings can be justified or that blasphemy warrants a death sentence.

Islamist

Islam should be imposed on society using peaceful means

Jihadist

Islam should be imposed on society using violence if necessary

Testimonials

Only just found this podcast. LOVE IT

Really great to see some honest conversation, that doesn’t seem concerned with making the truth more palatable for the fair of heart. I think we really need a lot more of this.

Great listen

Fantastic podcast and gets better every episode. BUT if you can’t handle the truth about the dismal state of Australian politics give this one a miss.

The Happy Dog

Look forward to this podcast every week

This is an entertaining and intelligent discussion of politics, religion, education and other important issues in Australia. If you’re not interested in politics or if you’re confused by it then you need to listen to these guys. They remove the mystery and put forward an analysis of the issues that will entertain and inform you.

Ep 81, one of the best and most enjoyable

Wel done Trevor and Hugh, one of the best Eps to date. Professional delivery by both.

Episode 68 right on the mark

This episode was just the right length, but more importantly, was a little more measured in addressing the topics. I admire the Iron Fist in the way he can craft rational statements about appalling behaviour in the topics discussed, and I found the 12th Man to be a good balance to the Iron Fist. I wish the Velvet Glove wouldn’t giggle at important topics or when religious thinking is described – we already find them ridiculous, but laughing every time is a bit much after hours of listening to episodes. This is a fun but semi-serious podcast that everyone should listen to, and I thank them for making the time to produce it.

Keep it going…

A refreshing podcast. Rational discussion on topics many won’t tackle honestly. I don’t agree with everything you say but I love the way your subject matter is explored and sometimes debated. Great work guys.

Making baby Jesus cry

Don’t listen to these baby eating heathens, God will kill an angel for every episode that you listen to.

Presenting the Inconvenient Truth

These guys are at the forefront of challenging religious privilege. If you want to be up-to-date on all the wacky goings-on by the religion pushers in this world and their attempts successful or otherwise to influence the political and social spheres of our lives then this is your podcast. We need more of this advocacy for a secular world view. Be like me or Bill and don’t miss an episode.

Christmas Special

All podcasts are great but the christmas special takes the cake. Excellent show guys.

Australian Centred Debate

This podcast is great for those looking for debates about secularism, religious power structures and Western liberal democratic ideals, all with a focus on the Great Southern Land. The two main protagonists bounce ideas off each other and occasionally guests are brought in to give different perspectives (I love to hate Right Wing Tony!). These are not Left Wing Nutters, I know as I tend to that description too often myself and disagree with them at times. Rationality and free thought rule! The boys don’t mind if you throw in your two cents, in fact, I think they love to hear from the public. Very worth a listen.
