Atheist Chaplain: How Secularism Deals With The Dying

How can one be an atheist and a chaplain? 90% of the time Wes Fornes is with patients and their families when death is knocking at the door, where he will call upon the divine in prayer. And then what does he say when the family asks, “Will I see Aunt Betsy in Heaven?”

In this talk, Wes will highlight the metaphysics of the Atheist Hospice Chaplain who stands alongside the most fervent of religious during times of trauma. When talk of heaven, a spirit world, and a rosary are at the core of someone’s reality, how does an atheist chaplain bridge the gap?

Wes Fornes has a B.A. in Biblical Studies and Philosophy from Dallas Baptist University, a Masters of Philosophical Theology from Criswell College and a Masters of Philosophy from [Green College] Oxford University. In the span of twelve years, he pastored in three evangelical churches, two of which were mega churches. Of the three churches, the first was a Southern Baptist church in Dallas TX, the second a young and hip Baptist church in Chesapeake VA, and the 3rd was a Pentecostal church in Charlottesville VA. His deconversion took place in 2010, but he remained a closet Atheist for one year while in the church.

Wes' current position is Psychosocial Director at a hospice company covering Gilroy to Pacifica. He leads the team of chaplains and social workers whose goal it is to provide spiritual and emotional support to the dying and their families.

The History of the King James Bible | Bart Ehrman

On January 24, 2013, Bart Ehrman gave the keynote speech for the opening of the traveling exhibition Manifold Greatness: The Creation and Afterlife of the King James Bible opened at the William H. Hannon Library at Loyola Marymount University.

This is a really great discussion of the history of the KJV of the Bible. There is no atheist or anti-religious discussion, so it would be a non-offensive video to show to theists to help them gain a better understanding of exactly how their holy book was assembled over the ages.

Mountain Meadows Massacre ~ Brigham Young had more than twenty wives

The September 1857 Mountain Meadows Massacre, in which a party of 120 emigrants, suspected of hostility toward the church, was murdered in southeastern Utah by Paiute Indians and a band of Mormons led by John D. Lee, who claimed to be acting on orders from Young himself.

Despite this atrocity, by 1858 Brigham Young had reached a reconciliation with the federal government, which issued a pardon for alleged Mormon offenses and for a time at least allowed the Saints to practice their religion and build their community without interference.

In 1871, Brigham Young was himself tried under an 1862 law that prohibited polygamy in United States territories, but though he had by this time married more than twenty wives, he was not convicted.

Cenk Uygur host of The Young Turks breaks it down.

Do you think this will hurt Cruz’s chances with Evangelical Christians?
