Losing My ReligionFirst of all, please note that this event will be at the Kendall Square Tommy Doyle’s, not the location we usually take over. Here’s the map!

Time:
7:00pm – 9:30pm

Cost:
Free!

Speaker:
William Lobdell, 48, is the author of the critically acclaimed memoir, “Losing My Religion: How I Lost My Faith Reporting on Religion in America — and Found Unexpected Peace” published by HarperCollins. The book has garnered glowing reviews and endorsements from such disparate people as atheist Christopher Hitchens and Skeptics Society founder Michael Shermer, and a variety of well-known Pentecostal and evangelical pastors and Christian talk radio hosts. Lobdell started on the religion beat at the Los Angeles Times in 1998 as an evangelical Christian and left it, eight years later, a reluctant atheist. He earned several national awards for his work before leaving the beat in 2006. Lobdell also has been a visiting faculty member for 12 years at the University of California, Irvine.

actually it doesn’t matter what Religion you may have, as long as you treat the other person right.“-
