William Murray was barely a teenager when his mother sued Baltimore schools and demanded that prayer and Bible reading be removed from public schools. Madalyn Murray O’Hair won her case at the Supreme Court but that didn’t make her happy. She was still the same bitter, vulgar woman. That’s William Murray’s assessment of his own deeply dysfunctional family. Murray tells us how bitterness and an embrace of Marxism combined to fuel his mother’s atheistic movement. He also explains how he changed from a much calmer Marxist and atheist than his mother to a Libertarian-type atheist. This shift alienated him from his mother to a great extent and set him on a path of seeking worldly fulfillment. But rather than satisfy him, that course left Murray broke, divorced and begging the mother he loathed to raise his daughter. Murray also explains how he found salvation in Jesus Christ in 1980 and how he can now see the steps leading to that dramatic conversion. Now the head of the Religious Freedom Coalition, Murray discusses the role his family had on our nation and his work now to defend the freedom of religion from those still seeking to scrub God from the public square.
