You know that Tuft’s study that gave me the idea to start this blog? ABC has a story online covering two of the ministers in that study. One of my Christian friends posted this to FB, shocked at the revelation. I wonder what he’ll think when I eventually come out publicly.
I really hope that I can find a job sooner rather than later. I can’t imagine being in this position for an extended period. I also can’t imagine actually being a minister. As a music director I don’t have to talk a whole lot about religious things, I just pick some hymns and rehearse the choir and make sure all the music stuff goes smoothly.
(On a mostly unrelated note: One of the commenters on his post mentioned that there is an “atheist church” in their town. They have a “Sunday School” and “contemporary style worship services” and go out evangelizing for freethought in the neighborhood. I’m not a huge fan of contemporary worship in the first place, maybe if they performed choral masterworks I’d be onboard.)
