Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
Carter Warden is a former conservative pastor of 25 years, now openly atheist. Using the pseudonym Adam Mann, he was a founder of The Clergy Project, an on-line support group for clergy who no longer believe the doctrines of the churches they serve. Adam was one of the original five interviewees in the 2010 Dennett-LaScola article, Preachers who are not Believers. While still in ministry, he was interviewed undercover by ABC World News Tonight and the Canadian Broadcasting Company.

Last fall he came out publicly as an atheist at the Freedom From Religion Foundations annual gathering. A press release was picked up by the Johnson City Press and Carter was outed to his church, friends, and extended family. In this interview, he talks about that experience, the challenge facing clergy who no longer believe yet who make a living for their families by serving their churches, and the liberation when people are able to be honest with themselves and others about what they really believe.

Hear previous interviews with individuals connected to the Clergy Project including Linda LaScola, Daniel Dennett, Dan Barker, Gretta Vosper, Ryan Bell, David Hayward, Pat Green, John Loftus, Bart Campolo, and Jerry DeWitt.
