Atheists United General meeting July 28, 11 AM
There and Back Again
A journey from atheist, to fundamentalist Christian, and then back to atheism.
Richard “Brother Richard” Haynes is a writer and public speaker living in Atlanta, Georgia. He was raised in a nonreligious home, but as a teenage runaway, had a “born again” religious experience. Almost immediately, Richard became an evangelist and personally led hundreds of individuals to Christ. Richard went on to receive a degree in Biblical Studies, and became an associate minister in a 12,000-member Atlanta mega-church.
In 1993, a couple of months after the birth of their eldest daughter, Richard, and his wife, Angela, made the agonizing decision to leave their church which was engulfed with scandal. Terrified and unemployed, they began their long and arduous journey to rationality and non-theism. For more information and to RSVP please click on the following link
