Pastor Justin Vollmar Comes Out as Atheist On Youtube In American Sign Language

From Justin Vollmar's Youtube vlog. (VirtualDeafChurch)
Now here's something unique that you don't see every day. Not only is Justin Vollmar a preacher who has revealed he's now an Atheist, but he came out using Sign Language on his blog at Youtube.

He is pastor at the Virtual Deaf Church and has been putting out videos in ASL for several years. Now he's joined the Clergy Project which has ballooned to over 550 members.
In this video, I am coming out of closet. I no longer believe in God. I am an Atheist now. This video explains my journey to doubt. This video is signed in American Sign Language. This video consists subtitles.
In the video he mentions:
“A profound wonderful change occurred in my life. My mind just completely shifted to the other side,” he said, noting that he could not allow himself to continue posting Bible-based videos. “After a long and mighty struggle, the answer finally became clear. This may shock you completely. Yes, I have become an atheist.”
Congratulations to Justin for this very brave act! Check out his video where he breaks the good news.

  1. I get very depressed about the extent to which this government is hacking into science funding, women's groups funding, the amount of wasteful spending, the major bills that go contrary to Canadian democracy (the new elections changes nearly sent me into convulsions).


    YET, the common Canadian on the street doesn't seem to notice or give a shit! Harper is eroding the very foundations of our country, if we continue on this path, we won't recognize our beautiful country in a couple generations. Our International image is already soiled thanks for Harper's lax environmental policies (or non-existent I should say). We could be a bastion of scientific innovations...I have a dream!


    Mulroney cut the space program and all of our greatest minds went to NASA. What hope do Canadian Scientists have in Canada??
