      I didn’t think this story could get any worse, but it just did: Two police officers who corroborated a seemingly false account of the fatal shooting of Samuel DuBose in Cincinnati were previously implicated in the death of an unarmed, hospitalised and mentally ill black man who died after he was “rushed” by a group […]

Whoo-Hoo, Jerry DeWitt makes the NYTimes!

My favorite pastor turned non-believer made the NYTimes front page today in a 5 page story on his deconversion.  I discovered Jerry’s videos early this year, shortly before the Reason Rally.  Jerry was born to be a pastor.  He’s a very charismatic speaker.  He might even make a great politician someday, provided we can keep him away from Atlas Shrugged.  If you have some time, check out how coming out has been one of the best things to happen to him psychologically but the worst thing to happen to his personal life.

And if you haven’t had an opportunity to meet Jerry yet, check out this appearance at Arkansas Society of Freethinkers from May of this year.  It’s a long video but it flies by.  You’ll appreciate how he handles the believer in the audience.  What a mensch.
