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.

And this goes out to former preachers who just can’t quit Louisiana:

  1. pretty decent. I watched half of it last night, I like his 5 steps and his realization rationale. BTW Dan Barker’s “Godless” is a great read IMHO.
