Tales of the Christ-Deprogrammed
For those who don't get the reference, it relates to the award-winning classic series from the mighty Rude Pundit, brilliantly titled "Tales of the Christ-weary." If you've not read them, I encourage you to do so.
Today, we find the Financially Savvy Atheist requesting stories about how people became agnostic or atheist, and I look forward to the final "best of" post. Go now and add your own.
In addition to being funny, pithy, and annoying to the winger population, I think posts like these actually have great value and can provide important insight as we craft new memes and develop strategy. Think of it as the anti-Obama theory.
I'll leave the reaching out to religious types to other religious types, and ask that people who have gone through an unConversion think about why and how that happened, and where similar pressures can be applied. There are probably a lot more fence sitters in church than we know of, and having guided more than one person through the process in the past, I can tell you that the rewards are very satisfying.
I count myself lucky to have been raised to think for myself. But there are those still struggling in the web of mythology, and I bet one could have a lot of fun sending out some emails to various believers in the address book, with links and cut-n-pastes of the best narratives.
