Unholy is the award-winning play by Diane Flacks about misogyny and religion – it was last year’s Art, entertainment, or culture story of the year. The play takes the form of a podcast recording with four women guests and a male moderator discussing the question of whether women should abandon religion – the women are a feminist Muslim and an Orthodox Jewish spiritual leader arguing that women should stick with religion, and an excommunicated nun and a lesbian atheist pundit arguing that they should walk away.

The play is being filmed for a special that will be shown on VisionTV, the Canadian multi-faith cable channel. There will be four shows:

Tickets are only $25 (plus a small service fee), and they’re going fast.

    Advocating for secularism is right up there with advocating for family planning. This is what is important for the world today. Plays offer one of the best venues for this important rallying.

    Wouldn’t it be great if Canadians, who are ensnared in American religious denominations, had the wherewithal to disentangle themselves from these American Christian profit centers: just as a sensible reaction to Trump’s Christian base made up of: Nazis, clansmen evangelicals and Catholics. If the Jehovah’s Witnesses and Mormons, to name just two of these ‘bullshit to believe’ enterprises, developed the literary tools necessary to understand the selfish human motives behind the creation of this crap and then decided to develop a Canadian Secular Society advocating for rationality and integration.

    Something not unlike the Canadian Atheists.
