Reverend Bob Ripley was a minister for over 30 years, with 15 of those years as Senior Minister at Metropolitan United Church, one of the most prominent churches of the United Church of Canada. He wrote a syndicated column discussing religion for 25 years.
In his September 26, 2014 column on LFPress, he announced to the world that he no longer believed in God. He's releasing a book which chronicles his journey, titled "Life Beyond Belief: a Preacher's Deconversion."
Bob joins Seth Andrews for a candid discussion about his life, his beliefs, his doubts, and the transition from Christian minister to skeptic/humanist.

I was a believer for years. My deconversion took 12 years. Now, as I look back on it, the time of my belief seems far away. At the monthly meetup I have with some fellow non-believers, I was asked what it was like to believe these things I now find to be nonsense, I'll reflect on why I held on so long to my indoctrination and what put me on the path to atheism.
Plus, your calls.

You can also send me your own story, to read for next episode! Just message me, or ask for my email in the chatroom. Thanks for listening!
It's more common than many realize. An atheist/agnostic is in a marriage, domestic partnership or long-term relationship with someone who is religious.
Is this a viable scenario? Should the atheist attempt to lead the partner toward deconversion? What are the frustrations? What are the challenges? Will it work? Can it work?
This podcast deals with life partners that hold worldviews on religion in direct opposition to the non-believer. Your calls and emails (firstname.lastname@example.org)

My deconversion story and how rough it's been. A decision that had to be made. I will also address the phrase, "I'll pray for you", so don't say it.

2. Helps deconverted Christians assimilate their newfound freedom into their lives and relationships.
