DeWitt was a pastor in the town of DeRidder, Louisiana, and was a fixture of the community. In private, however, he’d begun to question his faith. When it became public knowledge that DeWitt was now an atheist, he found himself shunned by much of DeRidder’s highly religious community, losing nearly everything he’d known. DeWitt’s struggle for identity and meaning mirrors the one currently facing millions of people around the world. After 25 years of preaching, including pastorship of two fundamentalist congregations, he became an atheist.

“A Scarlet Letter” to premier at LogiCon 2014!


What’s in the A-Word?

A Scarlet Letter explores the stigma surrounding the word “atheist,” a word often associated with immorality, anger, and… devil-worship? Yet, despite its stigma, non-belief is the fastest growing “religious” segment in the American public. This documentary explores why atheists are choosing to stand out against religious intrusion in public life while showing the human face of atheism. It examines the question of why so many people are passionate about a negative.

Looking through the lenses of agnostics, humanists, secularists and atheists, the film examines how non-belief is stigmatized, why it matters, and the importance of visibility. It also seeks to correct misconceptions while continuing to foster growth and understanding of the nonreligious community.

Jerry DeWitt to speak at LogiCon 2014!



Jerry DeWitt’s ministry began when he was 17. After 25 years of preaching, including pastorship of two fundamentalist congregations, he became an atheist.

About “Hope After Faith”:
A former Louisiana pastor’s courageous memoir chronicling his conversion to atheism Atheism’s leading lights have long been intellectuals raised in the secular and academic worlds: Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris and the late Christopher Hitchens.

By contrast, Jerry DeWitt was born and bred into the church and was in fact a Pentecostal preacher before arriving at atheism through an extraordinary dialogue with faith that spanned more than a quarter of a century.

Hope After Faith is his account of that journey.
