My Life With God IN and OUT of the Church is a beautiful account of Ray Fontaine's evolution from a Roman Catholic priest of over 20 years to an active Deist.
The cover of this subtle, yet powerful, book says much. The author wrote regarding the cover, "Like a bird that escapes from a man-made cage and returns to nature that God created, I too left the Church, replete with the supernatural attested to by clergymen, and returned to the natural life that God created."
While a Catholic priest in Africa, Ray Fontaine was looking at the stars one night and realized that the stars teach us that the Bible is wrong. It was by learning more about the stars that Galileo verified that the Bible is incorrect in its teachings that the Earth is the center of the Universe. For proclaiming this fact Ray's employer, the Catholic Church, put Galileo on trial. This realization along with many other holes in the Bible and Christianity eventually brought Ray to a much deeper and profound understanding of God and to Deism.
One of the key realizations that Ray made which lead him to Deism is the fact that God and religion are not the same thing. God is completely different from religion - thank God!
Currently this book is only available as an eBook/PDF. We plan on offering it in paperback again in the near future.

The survey shows a giant step forward for Deism in the fact that it actually uses the word "Deist" and for the very significant raw numbers it shows as representing the number of people who are Deists. In reality, the number of Deists is actually higher than the survey shows because the survey uses an outdated definition of Deist. For a more accurate definition please see our Deism Defined page.

One of the reasons the freethinker Giordano Bruno was tortured and murdered by being burned alive by the Catholic Church during the Inquisition was that he said the Universe is eternal and infinite which violates the superstitions in the Bible found in Genesis. This new study vindicates Bruno.
Obama supporters forget that when all is said and done, Obama is just another politician. This article shows he's proving that he is nothing but a politician by doing more than any other president to mix religion and government, especially through giving tax-dollars to religious organizations.
