At the American Atheist convention this year I was fortunate enough to be interviewed for an upcoming documentary by Michael Dorian and Marc Levine called Refusing My Religion. The documentary focuses on the Clergy Project and addresses the trend of even ministers becoming convinced that their religion is untrue.
Here’s the preview:
Yeah, I might have a sentence that I spoke nestled among interviews with those superstars. I think it might be time to retire.
Here’s how they describe the documentary:
When ministers lose their faith and “come out” not only as non-believers but as atheist activists, this is a clear indication that our society is transforming right before our eyes. We are making the definitive film about the unprecedented and rapid changes to the religious and cultural landscape of America.
As the internet and access to information continue to shape our world, religion now finds itself in a place it has never been before.
Michael and Marc both struck me as a pretty cool dudes, and also as very committed to this project. I suspect it’ll be a good one. If you’d like to toss some dollars toward the project you can do so here.
