A lot of you have been asking me how you can help some of the pastors who are now coming clean about their atheism.
Here’s one way.
Mark Palmer, the Executive Director of that group tells me (via email):
A few generous members of the HFA have agreed to pay (and have begun paying) about $4,000 but we are seeking additional donations. So, I created a chip-in with a $20,000 goal to get an Ex-Clergy fund established to help Teresa. If we raise more than $20K, the rest will help future Florida nonbelieving preachers who are trapped on the pulpit. All funds collected will go to Teresa up to a total of $20,000, but this chip-in is not the only route we are seeking donations. Any additional funds donated for this purpose will go to support other ministers who are making their way out. The HFA is a 501(c)(3) under the American Humanist Association.
It’s one way to help ex-pastors transition out of the pulpit and into a better place.
