Dogma Debate is a fast-paced talk radio show that averages 145,000 listeners per month, and topped over 2.4 million podcast downloads. The topics range from politics and religion to science and comedy, but it’s a favorite among people of all ages and backgrounds. The show is known as a platform for liberal and conservative believers to defend their faith and political views with respectful challenges by those who disagree. It may upset you, it will make you laugh, but most importantly, it will make you think.

David Smalley is a former Christian musician whose education in psychology, sociology, and world religions, with a deep-dive study of Christianity for more than 14 years, resulted in his atheism. He later became a secular activist and avid speaker, writer, and radio host. David quickly grew Dogma Debate from an idea, to an iHeartRadio show with millions of downloads. He is the former Editor-in-Chief of both Secular World & American Atheist magazines, the author of Baptized Atheist, and founder of He is most known for his respectful approach to believers, most recently featured in the 2014 movie My Week in Atheism.


The Baptist Ministry at Drexel University believes that academic communities are the most influential communities in our society. It is of the utmost importance for the church to be present in the lives of faculty and professional staff of our colleges and universities as they decide how future generations will think and learn. It is imperative for the church to be present as students make critical life decisions that will under gird the rest of their journey. They believe that the best way to do this is through a campus based, local church supported ministry.

Brian Musser followed his passion for Christianity by becoming the Baptist Campus Minister in 2005 and continues to use this position to communicate Christianity to those involved in Higher Education whether students, faculty, staff or administration. He is interested in communicating the needs and fears of Academia to the Christian Church culture.

He has passion for communicating to churches how they can invest in the lives of students.

  2. Michael says:

    Hi, I would like to join the free thought society but since I missed the first meeting last week, I don’t really know when and where to go for meetings.

  3. Andrix Hopper says:

    So basically this is a club to jerk off about how bad religion is under the guise of having actual meaningful discussion? Do you guys compare fedoras as well?


  4. Rich says:

    The guise of what? Religions are the worse scourges that have plagued the world since the beginning of recorded history. Millions have been tortured and killed due to these nonsensical beliefs. The only fedora you need is a thinking cap.

  5. @Rich says:

    @Rich – Intolerant liberals like you are the problem. You only preach acceptance when it conforms to your beliefs, but everyone else is wrong, guilty, and persecuted. Thank God for religion and the morals it teaches.

  6. Eric Kim says:
