After the Reason Rally, American Atheists held its annual convention in DC. I did not attend, though I wish I had — mostly because I had so little time to talk to so many people I saw at the rally and going to the conference would have given me a chance to spend more time with them. And because I would like to have seen this:
A local minister stepped down from her post just before announcing she is an atheist.
A member of Lake Jackson United Methodist in Tallahassee says Teresa MacBain left the church Friday, March 30.
A day later, a video was posted online from a recent American Atheist Conference.
In it, MacBain came out as an atheist to the crowd.
This is becoming more and more common. Dan Barker, an ex-preacher himself, has started the Clergy Project, an online forum for ministers still in the pulpit who have lost their faith and become atheists.
