September 15, 2018 –
Dan Barker is co-president of the Freedom From Religion Foundation. He became a teenage evangelist at age 15 and continued to preach for 19 years. Following five years of reading, Dan gradually outgrew his religious beliefs. “If I had limited myself to Christian authors, I’d still be a Christian today,” Dan says. “I just lost faith in faith.” He announced his atheism publicly in January, 1984. He tells his story in the books Losing Faith in Faith (1992) and Godless (2008).
Dan will be speaking to us about current FFRF lawsuits, especially Barker v. Conroy and the Housing Allowance case. There will be ample time for questions and book signing.
Limited quantities of his books will be available for purchase at the event.
