Catherine Dunphy Named New Executive Director of the Clergy Project

Now that Teresa MacBain is the Public Relations Director for American Atheists, the Clergy Project needs a new leader and they made an excellent choice in her replacement: Catherine Dunphy.

Dunphy was a Roman Catholic Chaplain before she became an atheist and she was one of the first members of the Clergy Project when it began.

A couple of months ago, she gave a wonderful speech about her de-conversion and you can watch it below (the transcript is here).
