"I'm an atheist, which means I don't believe in God. I don't believe in him." These words should be harmless to anyone who advocates for free expression. But Mohamed Hisham said them on a national TV show in Muslim-majority Egypt. He was aggressively thrown off the show, was beaten at home, threatened constantly with death, and faced serious jail time. In time, with a campaign headed by Troy Garnaut and supported by prominent public voices like (our previous guest) Sam Harris and our own Armin Navabi, Mohamed was able to escape Egypt, and now lives as an openly gay Arab atheist in Germany. He did us the honor of telling us his incredible story—joining us from the refugee center he is currently staying at. Don’t miss this.
