Converts, Wed, Jan 30 2013 #(633)

Richard —

keep up the good work. I came to my conversion in a rather natural manner. My family is fundamentalist christian. I converted when, a couple of days after a sermon on that “what you do to the least of these, you do to me” quote from one of the gospels, my father bragged at a meeting in our house (with the minister and the other church leaders) about signing papers to repossess an independent trucker's rig. This was at the height of the 70s oil embargo. All in attendance laughed at the news — my dad had just destroyed a man's ability to support his family. That just killed any sense of belief I had.
