    Madalyn Murray O'Hair son's conversion to Christianity

    -Now deceased Madalyn, once known as the most hated woman in America and a title she apparently took great pleasure in (1), fought a war against school prayer and won. It was further ruled in her favour that official Bible-reading in American public schools in 1963 and onward would cease.

    According to her son Murray (now 70 years of age), as captured on film while still a school pupil during this whole affair, “I am an atheist, and I wish to be an atheist, and I don’t feel it would be appropriate for me to stand up and say the Lord’s Prayer(2).

    Madalyn subsequently founded the American Atheists and sued the city of Baltimore demanding that the state collected taxes from the tax exempt Catholic church. She also sued NASA arguing that public prayer ought to be banned by government employees in outer space. She would also challenge the words under God in the pledge of allegiance as well as the motto “IN GOD WE TRUST” on currency.

    However, things took a turn when in 1995 Madalyn, her son Jon, and granddaughter Robin were kidnapped and murdered by former American Atheist employee David Waters.

    But Murray, now matured and all the more wiser, is willing to look back on these events and describe to us what really happened. And, perhaps proving to be quite the slap to the face of his mother, Murray has since denounced his atheism and become a Christian.

    He has penned a book called ‘My Life Without God,’ and is also the chairman of the Religious Freedom Coalition. Nonetheless, Murray explains the dynamics of his family during his childhood:

    My family was definitely different. My mother tried to defect to the Soviet Union, she was a Marxist leader in the community, our neighbourhood was for the most part immigrants from many of those communist countries like Poland, from Hungary, from East Germany. And to have somebody in their neighbourhood who wanted to make this country like that one [resulted] in pretty much a lot of animosity towards the family and toward me.”

    Murray grew up an atheist and was part of his mother’s plan to get schools to give up prayer. So what changed his mind? Murray explains...

    Good read.

    I heard him interviewed several years ago on Christian radio WMUZ in Detroit. His story is poignant, but with a happy ending for him once he came to Christ.
    When your praise match your prayers, the answer will come.
