Why you left your religion.
I haven't left it, to be honest. I'm a church musician, and my wife is a dedicated Christian. And I like my job. So I'm an "atheist under cover."

Insightful article from Godless in Dixie

Fun with Christians!

Just over a year ago, I managed to get a new church music job: it pays better (and I've gotten two raises in the past year); the people I work with are very cool; my kids and wife love it there, and truthfully, I love it there. There's just one thing I realized today: in my heart of hearts, I don't actually believe in God. I pray out loud with my choir every week, I participate in Sunday School and talk about the Bible with other Christians, I often pay a lot of lip service to God. It's part…
