Hi Richard,

I was indoctrinated in fundamentalist Christianity from birth, but slowly became increasingly liberal as I learned more about the world. The struggle to force my inner convictions into a mold of Christianity was one of the main sources of my inner anguish that became clinical depression. A few months after starting treatment with a psychiatrist, I read the God Delusion and I haven't looked back since. The realization that the “God” I was tormenting myself over simply does not exist has provided me with more peace and healing than religion ever did. I'm devouring every rational, non-religious book I can get my hands on (including many from your recommended reading list).

I can't thank you enough, especially for your campaign to protect children from the religious beliefs of their parents.

All the best,
Naomi
