Interview with Dr. Darrel Ray
Founder, Recovering From Religion and the Secular Therapy Project
I stepped far outside my comfort zone to find people who believe as I do or are at least closely aligned with my worldview.
And there they were, at the American Humanist Association’s 82nd Annual Conference (my first as an attendee). I stepped out of my armored, cautious existence and tried to be the potential I have always had.
Thus the first of three interviews I obtained just by asking is now being shared.
I have two more video interviews to post and many more thoughts to share about what I experienced at the conference.
For total transparency, I am someone who was traumatized by Christianity. I am now working through a childhood filled with my doubts and lack of faith being dismissed and second-guessed. My desired end state would be to let go of the deep-seated resentment I feel related to having a very rigid set of ideas forced on me against my will.
