SUPPORT OUR SPONSOR:  http://www.naturebox.com/thinkingatheist 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.
