         Name: Amy Paris Born: 1971 Location: Philadelphia, PA Former Religious Affiliation: None      My Story I have never been religious. My parents had been raised in religious homes, but had grown out of their faiths, as I’d delicately put it. So I was raised in a non-religious household, and was never exposed to religion at home at all. We celebrated a very secular x-mas (taking the “Christ” out of it, don’t you know), full of presents and food and family, but certainly without church or even reference to the meaning of x-mas. Ditto Easter – we had Easter...

    Name: Ken McNutt II Born: 1967 Location: Sugar Hill , GA Label: Atheist (the absence of the belief in God purely based upon the lack of evidence) Former Religious Affiliation: Various Christian denominations (mostly Catholic)     My Story:  My first religious memories are of going to Sunday School at a Lutheran church a half block away from my home in Detroit when I was six years old. There was no reason to doubt any of the stories from the Bible that I was told. Why would they lie? At that age, it seemed possible that God could read every thought I had or that a man...

Tony Musso

    Name: Tony Musso Born: 1983 Label: Atheist Former Religious Affiliation: Catholic      The God of My God is the Man behind the Curtain My name is Tony and I am an atheist. I’m 29 years old and was baptized into the religion of Catholicism. I was sent to Sunday school like many young children and had God forced into my life by my father, rather than being told to explore and discover for myself. There were many times in my life that I questioned the existence of God, and then there were many times that I was a born again Christian in my life as well. It wasn’t...

Name: Erica Hopkins Born: 1991 Location: Mahwah, NJ (home), Haverford, PA (school) Organization affiliation: none Label: atheist, reconstructionist Jew (somewhat) Former Religious Affiliation: Reformed Jew   My Story I was raised Jewish, and I remember going to temple and Hebrew school and being told about god and Jewish tradition. As far back as I can remember, I remember thinking there was something wrong with me  because no matter how hard I tried, I just couldn’t believe in god. I remember thinking that this idea of the Judeo-Christian god made no sense at all. But I was afraid to...
