← For clergy, lost faith can lead to lost family, jobs

An impressively non-judgemental piece, given its source (though I was distracted by the unintentionally amusing ad on the source site for "Personalized urns made and blessed by Trappist monks -- get a catalog and a free blessed cross" ... parody would be superfluous).

I think the Clergy Project is a really important development for the US: it makes people -- clergy and laity alike -- wake up to the idea that something exists (a disbelieving pastor) whose existence had probably never occurred to them before. It has the capacity to introduce a profound shift in people's thinking, because now atheists aren't just people out there somewhere in the big bad world but, just possibly, in here too.
