The latest installment of the Freethinking For Dummies podcast is now available here. It should be on iTunes later today or tomorrow.
In this podcast, I interview Laura Talley, a former baptist minister’s wife who is now an atheist. Her story of how she came from a fundamentalist Christian belief that she’d been raised in to atheism is fascinating and, at times, heartbreaking because of the abuse she suffered at the hands of her minister ex-husband, and members of their congregations, as well as the condemnation and ostracizing by the Christian community when she decided to get a divorce. Despite all that, she is upbeat and has a wonderfully positive outlook on life. I encourage everyone to listen in. You should also visit her blog at http://www.redheadedskeptic.com/.
