Radioactivity: Live Call-In (Tuesday) | Listen to this entire show:
Today on Radioactivity we feature an interview with guest Jerry DeWitt, an atheist who was born and bred into the church and used to be a Pentecostal preacher. He shares his story of conversion to atheism in his new book Hope After Faith.
DeWitt was a pastor in the town of DeRidder, Louisiana, and was a fixture of the community. In private, however, he’d begun to question his faith. When it became public knowledge that DeWitt was an atheist, he found himself shunned by much of DeRidder’s highly religious community, losing nearly everything he’d known.
Jerry DeWitt will be speaking tonight at the Florida Atheists headquarters, 5103 S West Shore Blvd, Tampa at 7 PM.
