Go to: Church pastors become atheists

The most interesting part of the story was that once he came out, his old church closed. Progress ! I wonder how many of the congregation will then say "You know, there are lots of things I could do on a Sunday if I don't have to sit on a hardwood pew for two hours."

The second most interesting part was that lots of congregations will now be starting to doubt that their cleric/minister will be among those losing their faith, and that he/she has just not come out yet.

Divide & conquer, to coin a phrase. Or, sowing dissension in the ranks. Too bad the announcer could not get the web site straight. Dot ORG, not dot COM.

Go to: Major Threat to Religion? Clergy People Coming Out as Atheists

rod-the-farmer's Avatar Jump to comment 18 by rod-the-farmer

I would be interested to hear if any of the clergy who have come out ever bothered to speak to their congregation.....

"Some of you may have heard that I have lost my faith, and now consider myself an atheist. I understand this may come as a shock to many of you, but believe me when I say this was not something I came to without much thought. One last thing I would like to do for you is to explain my journey, and how I came to the point where I find myself today. The board has agreed to allow me Tuesday evening, from 8:00 pm to 10:00 pm for a discussion. All those interested in learning what happened to me are welcome to attend. After that I will leave this church, and look for a new career where I can still help others."

Nah. Some flying horse in the middle east went to warp drive and there was a radiation spike.
