But, on August 9, an atheist family will be featured on a FX reality show.
Morgan Spurlock's "30 Days," is a TV documentary/reality show on FX
network. On Wednesday, August 9, 9 PM Central time the Frei Family
will be featured in an episode about an atheist family (the Freis)
living with a fundamentalist Christian family. There is some
information about the show on the website:
http://www.fxnetworks.com/shows/originals/30days/home.htm but it
requires Adobe Flash.
Those of us who attended the AAI convention in Kansas City will
remember Brenda and Mark Frei and their children and their daughter's
story about the discrimination she experienced in school. They
participated in "30 Days"
because they were interested in helping to dispel the unfair,
inaccurate, and negative attitudes and prejudices many people hold
toward the nonreligious. The one-hour show is edited footage from the
Frei family being filmed for at least 400 hours.
