About Me:
Dangerous Talk is a blog discussing the three most dangerous topics of polite conversation: Religion, Politics, and Sex. Our goal is to fight back against the Religious Right and push for a more free society.

My name is Staks Rosch. I was born in northern New Jersey, just outside of New York City. I went to West Chester University and was extremely active in many activities including, but not limited to, the English Club (President), The Philosophy Club (President), Student Activities Council, The Iconoclast literary magazine (founding member), The Quad campus newspaper (weekly columnist for at least 3 or 4 years), WCUR 680 AM and WCUR 91.7 FM. I earned my Bachelors of Science in Social Studies Education, with a concentration in Philosophy. I took a year off and then went back to West Chester University and got my Masters Degree in Philosophy.

I have been a long-time Independent, and in 2003, I switched sides to the Democratic Party. I quickly jumped into Democratic politics in Chester County and was appointed Chair of the Young Democrats of the County after I attempted a run for the U.S. Congress. But I must admit that I am a bit of a rebel, and a vocal one at that. I quickly made a name for myself within the County party and joined many grassroots Democratic groups such as the DFA (Democracy for America) and the PDA (Progressive Democrats of America) . Recently I moved to Delaware County Pennsylvania.

In the Freethought community, I have debated and discussed religion with countless Christians of differing sects. While in college, I held a program mocking a Christian program of a similar name; I called it “Do You Agree with Staks: How I Got Over God.” I soon joined the Freethought Society of Greater Philadelphia and became a board member of that organization for a few years. I went down to D.C. to rally against the use of “under god” in the pledge of allegiance. While I was there, I got to meet Michael Newdow and a few other cool people. In November of 2005, I was tapped to be a panelist on the CN8 television show “It’s Your Call with Lynn Doyle.” The show topic was Intelligent Design in the classroom.

Throughout my life, I have been a strong advocate of free speech and got a two-second sound byte on “A&E Biography: Howard Stern.” This occurred while I was rallying for free speech at his last broadcast on K-ROCK in New York City. During both 2004 and 2005, I went down to D.C. and met with the legislative aids of multiple U.S. Senators to discuss the Broadcast Decency Act of 2004/2005. Unfortunately in 2004, 99 percent of the U.S. Senate voted for this anti-freedom bill. However, the President forgot to sign it into law, so it was up again in 2005. Fortunately, it never made it to the Senate in 2005, but it did pass overwhelmingly in the House. 2006 however seemed to be the big anti-freedom year since the bill passed that year with 100% support from the Senate. This time unfortunately, President Bush remembered to sign his name to it and made it law.

In 2006, started up DangerousTalk.net and started the Dangerous Talk radio show on WCHE 1520 AM, West Chester. I soon gained an audience on Internet Radio. Today, due to my busy schedule, I rarely record shows, but have moved into the Blog-o-sphere. Since 2007, I have been running a daily blog on MySpace which I am now moving here.

Building a Community of Reason

Posted on July 27, 2009 at 11:30am 0 Comments

Yesterday I attended the 2nd annual Philadelphia Coalition of Reason (PhillyCoR) Picnic. PhillyCoR is an umbrella organization which unites several freethought, Humanist, atheist, and secular organizations together. The picnic was a great way to mix all of our respective groups together and to engage in intellectual dialog, brainstorming, and just some pleasant conversation.

Release Everyone from Prison!

Posted on July 22, 2009 at 9:00am 7 Comments

America has a real prison problem and I have the perfect solution. You might even say that it was divinely inspired… because I got the idea from the Bible. I think we should let everyone in the prisons go and I’ll take their place. I will serve a trillion year sentence so that everyone else can go free. I will sacrifice my freedom so that all who believe in me should be set free.

Staks v. Lemon

Posted on July 20, 2009 at 9:25am 0 Comments

In 1971, the Supreme Court ruled on the case of Lemon v. Kurtzman. The court ruled that public school money could not fund private religious school text books and salaries. But more importantly than that, this case created what has been called the “Lemon Test.”

Atheism 101: Does it take more faith to be an atheist?

Posted on July 18, 2009 at 12:30pm 13 Comments

I hear it all the time, “it takes more faith to be an atheist than it does to believe in God.” This popular Christian argument claims that in order for atheists to reject the claim that god exists, we must first know everything that there is to know.
