American Atheists announced that it will launch the world's first ever TV channel dedicated exclusively to atheism, offering content 24/7. The group is looking to partner with other organizations, including the Richard Dawkins Foundation.
"We're going to TV because it's part of our strategy of going to where we are not," said American Atheists President David Silverman during a speech at Stanford University earlier this week. "There is a lot of potential here. From televangelists to Christmas specials, there is a plethora of religious TV programming to choose from. With Atheist TV, we're filling a void: There are a lot of atheists and closeted atheists who are curious and want more. We have it, and the next step is bringing it to them."
The channel, set to launch sometime during the summer, will reportedly be called "Atheist TV," and will be shown through internet-streaming service Roku 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. more >>

The following is an edited transcript of CP's most recent interview with Miss Kay, who's the author of three new books, Miss Kay's Duck Commander Kitchen, The Women of Duck Commander and D Is for Duck Calls.

Lifetime has announced that it will be adopting Anita Diamant's New York Times Old Testament bestseller into a two episode miniseries.
Released in 1997, The Red Tent chronicles the life of Jacob and Leah's daughter Dinah, who is mentioned in the book of Genesis, and her relationship with her father's two wives, Leah and Rachel, and his two concubines Zilpah, and Bilhah.
Because Diamant's story deviates from the Genesis account, The Red Tent was not warmly received by all Christians and Jews. more >>
Apollo Nida is not happy with being called a snitch.
Nida, attorney Phaedra Parks' husband on "Real Housewives of Atlanta," made headlines earlier this year for allegedly creating fake businesses, false bank accounts and using stolen checks while defrauding automotive lenders, according to Access Atlanta. Now, the Associated Press is reporting that Nida, the 35-year-old fitness guru and reality television personality, has officially admitted being involved in conspiracy to commit mail, wire, and bank fraud worth $2.3 million across 11 states.
After news broke that Nida would be taking a plea agreement in the case, some people began to call him a snitch. After one Twitter user referred to him as a "government snitch," the TV personality verbally bashed him. more >>
Duck Dynasty's Miss Kay, the matriarch of the Robertson family, released her first children's book this week, with D Is for Duck Calls, which takes children on a journey through the alphabet as they learn about the world of Duck Commander.
Some women grow up dreaming about becoming a noted author, but Miss Kay never had the desire or the belief that she'd one day author not only one book but three, among them being a children's book. But when she talks about the fond memories she has of her childhood library in Ida, Louisiana, and the library she created for her grandchildren and great-grandchildren at her home, it's easy to see how it is that Miss Kay has added children's book author to her ever-growing list of titles.
"When I was a little girl I hung out at the town library. I came from a town of 250 people. We only had maybe four buildings that we considered in the town and one red light. So that little library was one of my favorite places to hang out. I loved it," Miss Kay shared with The Christian Post in a recent interview. more >>

"[Love] is an emotional decision, but it is also a choice. I choose to love my wife every day," said Warren to the View hosts. more >>
