The Clergy Project - For Former Ministers

That is, former ministers/rabbis/priests/imams etc. Think about it - even once a man or woman of the cloth has concluded that they're peddling harmful nonsense, what can they do? They'rve specialized in their education for this role, and they depend on it for their income - and often, so does their family. So often they keep quiet, and try to help people within the bounds of an institution that they've figured out is selling easy answers.

That's why the Clergy Project is fantastic. It exists as a support network for "out" former holy men and women. This is just a start, but the more people know about it, the more successful it will be.
