Godless in America


Play all 5 parts

From Atheist Media:

“The amazing life – and disturbing death – of an extraordinary woman who successfully challenged the place of God in American life for 30 notorious years.

Madalyn Murray O’Hair had come to occupy a special place in the American psyche since her 1963 campaign which ended compulsory prayer in US schools after a Supreme Court action on behalf of her son William. O’Hair’s campaign succeeded, but she became the most hated woman in America (her own label), as she fought to take the name of God off the dollar bill – and her son became a born-again Christian.

Then, on a summer’s day in 1995 , she suddenly disappeared, leaving her breakfast dishes on the table – and half a million dollars missing from her organisation’s bank account.”

    The first couple of vids in this were kinda interesting, but it really drags out in the end, Too much crime mystery, not enough exploration of the issues.

    And geez the narrator..i;ve never heard a more boring accent D:.

  2. I says:

    I agree – it totally flatlined, lost the message, and just got yucky.

  3. Dave Babbitt says:

    Her son’s auto-biography is really interesting.
