Our new feature-length documentary REFUSING MY RELIGION is about pastors who've lost their faith and become atheist activists within the larger context of America's declining religiosity. We have seven NY Times best-selling authors in it, many of whom are preeminent figures in the atheist movement, notably Richard Dawkins, Daniel Dennett, Steven Pinker and Susan Jacoby, among others.
