Brother Richard of Atheist Nexus Fame

Brother Richard
"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.

Richard is now secularly ordained and has dedicated himself to building non-theist communities, and encouraging others to "come out" of the atheist closet, and is president of Atheist Nexus International, Inc. the world’s largest coalition of non-theists and non-theist communities.

A complimentary lunch is provided after the talk. We’ll get a chance to meet, talk and get to know one another.
