Julia Sweeney (SNL) one woman show "Letting go of God" is supposed to be really good. Here is a 30min clip you can download, it's really worth it, very smart and funny. It's on the right side of the page.

"why would a god create people so imperfect then blame them for their own imperfections, then send his son to be murdered by those imperfect people to make up for how imperfect those people were and for how imperfect those people were inevtibly going to be."

It is  really good! I saw her do it live in October (SF), and can report that if you have any background in a formal religion, she will echo so many of your own epiphanies. Plus, she’s hilarious.

I like the idea that she has a forum. It’s nice to have a female perspective out there on losing faith, especially from such a warm and gracious person.

I bought the audiobook from itunes. probably the best $11 i’ve ever spent. You want this! It is truely amazing. I could convince more christians with this Sweeney audiobook than with Dawkins “God Delusion” and i love Dawkins. I can’t wait to share this with everyone!
