Atheists to start 1-800 hotline for doubters

By Dan Merica, CNN

(CNN) – Who can people call when religious doubts arise, but they're afraid to talk to their faith leaders or families?

A group that helps people "recover" from religion says it's ready to pick up the phone.

Recovering from Religion, which has about 40 support groups in the U.S. and Britain, plans to launch a hotline that will offer doubters an anonymous place to ask difficult questions and find communities of like-minded nonbelievers.

The group plans to staff the help line 24 hours a day and is modeling it after services like suicide prevention hotlines.

Sarah Morehead, executive director of Recovering from Religion, told CNN that the mission is to help people, not convert them to atheism.

“A lot of the times they just need someone to talk to," Morehead said.

The 1-800 number has yet to be named. Recovering from Religion is trying to raise $30,000 by June 30 to fund "The Hotline Project" with up to 40 counselors.

Ideally, the help line would be live by the holiday season, said Morehead, which is often a difficult time for people struggling with religious doubts.

The idea for the hotline sprang up after calls came in to the Recovering from Religion phone line from people who were questioning their faith and needed to talk to someone. Morehead said she gets a few calls every day and hundreds of e-mails a month from people seeking counseling.

From there, she said, it seemed a hotline that provided a permanent, anonymous place to talk to someone was the best option.

"Coming out" as a nonbeliever - or even a doubter - can often be extremely difficult, Morehead and others say. In addition to the existential worries, budding nonbelievers run the risk of alienating family and friends.

The help line’s volunteer counselors will be trained to not engage in religious debate, Morehead said. Instead, they will try to give callers “practical, action-oriented solutions.”

When someone first calls the hotline, the counselor will start by simply asking the caller to talk about his or her personal story, said Morehead.

Later, the counselor and the caller might work on an action plan. The caller's goals may concern formally leaving religion altogether, but Morehead said that counselors will also offer advice on finding a new faith or connecting with a local community of nonbelievers.

Some blogs have questioned the hotline, however, calling it a ploy to increase the number of atheists in America.

Headlines like “New 1-800 Number Funded By Liberals To Convert Christians to Atheists,” for example, have cropped up at a number of conservative blogs.

Morehead said her critics fail to grasp the point of Recovering from Religion.

“Most of the people who contact us are working their way towards disbelief, so of course we are very equipped to handle that,” Morehead said. “That is not the goal, though, or the job of the facilitators.”

This hotline is not completely unique in the world of religious "nones" – people who either don’t believe in God or don’t affiliate with any religious beliefs. Atheists have long discussed disbelief in the comfort of online anonymity.

“We have seen how important the Internet is, especially young people questioning their faith, and this provides them with another resource with a different focus,” said Jesse Galef, communications director for the Secular Student Alliance. “For people who want more guidance, I think this resource will be very valuable.”

Services that help religious doubters have thrived recently.

The Clergy Project, an online community for preachers who no longer believe in God, has grown from 52 to nearly 500 people since its founding in 2011, said Teresa MacBain, the former executive director of the project.

MacBain, a former pastor who converted to atheism, called the help line "another way for people to contact someone anonymously and discuss the struggles they are having for their beliefs.”

“If this project had been around when I found the Clergy Project, I would have used it.”

MacBain said she plans to get training as one of the counselors and hopes to be answering calls when the service launches.

      God apparently never heard of "stem cell research" which will be able to do that eventually.

      God wanted to start stem cell research earlier but the scientist he chose to lead the way was aborted by a single mother in Ohio in 1953.

      As I recall Bush didn't ban stem cell research. He banned embryonic stem cell research. That means you can't kill babies to cure your Alzheimer's.

      You Bill are the one that demands attention and a crutch. How many times have you run away from a thread when it backs you into a corner. The thread is anonymous, what difference does the handle make, if you changed yours from time to time maybe you would not be so despised.

      In the Judeo-Christian religion humans have free will. That means there's something that God can not control. This means that your argument is invalid, thanks try again.

      @ BD

      No one is killing babies to cure Alzheimer's disease. That's a lie perpetrated by anti-choice groups.

      It's embryonic stem cells, not infant stem cells. An embryo is not an infant. Bush is an idiot who made decisions based on his delusional beliefs and pressure from religious groups.

    Is anyone missing the fact that the organization you are bashing "Recovering from religion" helps people recover from the following :
    Scientology, Mormon Church, Unification Church, , Sunni Islam and their 4-5 sects, Shia Islam and their 10-12 sects, Baha'i Faith, Hinduism, Taoism, Buddhism, Sikhism, Rodnoveri, Celtic pagan, Heathenism, Semitic pagan, Wicca, Kemetism, Hellenic pagan, Roman pagan. etc etc etc.

    June 4, 2013 at 4:07 pm |

      Good point Leif. An honest seeker should question

      June 4, 2013 at 4:09 pm |
    • Uncouth Swain

      @Leif- when and if they ever set this up, I suggest you call as a test. Tell them you in doubt of your faith in Quetzalcoatl and see if they can help you.
      Let's be real here, this organization will be aiming toward Christianity the majority of the time.
      I would be shocked if this thing actually gets going and lasts more than a year.

    • Recovering From Religion

      Exactly. Now, we expect that the vast majority of our calls will be regarding the primary religious demographics in the United States, but that certainly doesn't mean we're targeting any one particular belief. People are asking for our help already, all the time. Now we'll be able to be there for them when THEY need us, and not just when we can get back to them.

      June 4, 2013 at 4:26 pm |
    • Leif

      According to the latest Pew research http://bit.ly/13jSHV5 the united states has 2.5 million Muslims.
      If they decide to leave their religion where do they call ?

    "Recovering from Religion" What a great tag line... But I have to agree with Alias re: 800 numbers. Are they expecting a lot of old people to suddenly lose jesus? lol. They'll probably just call by accident instead of QVC/HSN...

    • Recovering From Religion

      Currently we already get tons of people calling and emailing, looking for someone to talk to about their journey away from religion and the confines of faith. This will just offer a more streamlined opportunity for them to connect with someone in person who is trained to help them. Thanks for your comment!

    I am so thrilled about this.

    And I don't see why people are objecting. If you don't want to use it, you don't have to. Many religions have similar hotlines or web chats available if you want to ask questions or talk about their religion. Some will even send representatives to your house to talk to you in person. So? This seems like a great idea.

  13. I'm not a GOPer, nor do I play one on TV

    "Some blogs have questioned the hotline, however, calling it a ploy to increase the number of atheists in America."

    There is no need to 'recuit' atheists. When people stop kidding themselves the conclusions become self-evident. The loss of faith and the grief people can feel over this process is a genuine opportunity for such a hotline.

    June 4, 2013 at 3:40 pm |

    Doubt is an essential component of faith. A foolish certainty is the hobgoblin of small minds.

      Is it? I suspect even among the examples cited that one would have a hard time finding very many believers who would not admit to a season of doubt. I would be skeptical of any that did, just as I would be skeptical of any overly confident atheist.

      June 4, 2013 at 3:52 pm |

      No Bill,
      Doubt is a certainty when pushing a book that has flaws and contradictions.

    • I'm not a GOPer, nor do I play one on TV

      @Bill,

      you want to pat yourself on the back for believing where there is no proof (ie faith). That is the essence of your point on doubt, as though you get an extra pat on the back for embracing your belief after feeling doubt.

      On the other hand, regarding the point you tried to make, most people who have thought through the question accept that non-existence cannot be proven and will not profess a positive belief in the non-existence of God – your "foolish confidence".

      The absence of a God is simply the most plausible explanation – it is not "foolish confidence".

      June 4, 2013 at 4:01 pm |

    • FA

      Agreed. By the way a scientific argument for proof of "GOD". Consider the moment of creation i.e. Big Bang. There had to be just enough gravity and other forces that we may not yet understand for the universe to form and thereby several billion "earth years" later our solar system to be born. It seems to me that a true scientist and i consider my self as one, would look at all the science and creation in the universe, and come to a conclusion that our creation cannot be a random coincidence. BTW most atheists believe in to much randomness for their beliefs to have any credibility for me. For me "randomness" is merely a phenomenon inherent laws that we as scientist cannot explain yet.
      The question for me is not whether or not there is a God. That should be clear to any person with reasonable judgement.
      But what is God?

    "another way for people to contact someone anonymously and discuss the struggles they are having for their beliefs.”

    Mark 6:6
    And he marvelled because of their unbelief. And he went round about the villages, teaching.

    Mark 9:24
    And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.

    Mark 16:14
    Afterward he appeared unto the eleven as they sat at meat, and upbraided them with their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they believed not them which had seen him after he was risen.

      The reason is that someone who is having doubts should take their doubts to the one who gave them faith to begin with, calling someone who is lost, the blind leading the blind.

      That particular quote is just part of the story and it really is a good story. The hope would be someone would take that thought and maybe go read the story in the 9th chapter of Mark and it would help them with their doubts.

      Then a great deal of the atheists on this blog must be statistical freaks of nature. They seem quite sure that they "know" what is and what isn't about the topic of spirituality.

      So, Bill, let me get this straight: You want the organization to keep a "success/fail ratio" on an event that you can neither name nor describe? Really?

      At the rate people are waking up and leaving religion, I don't see that this will make any measurable difference.

      Bill said, " It's not like you guys have a cohesive message."

      This, coming from a member of a faith that has over 30,000 cohesive messages. rofl

      Alias- "At the rate people are waking up and leaving religion, I don't see that this will make any measurable difference."

      Exactly, instead of it being one out of every three humans on this planet being Christian...it might end up one out of five in another 200 years or so. So what's the point in having this anyway? Lol.

      Uncouth: That's not having all the answers. We offer rebuttals and back our rebuttals with the facts as we currently have them.
      Religion offers answers that may never be questioned, science offers questions that may never be answered.
      For example...When we talk about supporting evolution, we do so because there is substantial evidence for it. However, that does not mean that further evidence will not be found.
      We are likely to change our opinions as the evidence changes, christians on the other hand believe they have all the answers based on a 2000 year old book and are not likely to change their opinion no matter what evidence is presented to them

      @Truth Prevails- "We offer rebuttals and back our rebuttals with the facts as we currently have them."

      "We" as in you. I wasn't referring directly to you by my observation. You have to admit that there are those certain atheists on here that offer no information.

      "Religion offers answers that may never be questioned, science offers questions that may never be answered."

      That's a clever sounding statement that doesn't really say alot. It's wrong though. Religion can be questioned and wisdom may be gleaned from it. Many times science and those that grasp to it a bit too strongly, seem to get so ingrained that they can no longer be questioned. There are those that believe the science of Global Warming so much that anything that goes contrary to it is ignored without a thought.

      "We are likely to change our opinions as the evidence changes, christians on the other hand believe they have all the answers based on a 2000 year old book and are not likely to change their opinion no matter what evidence is presented to them"

      That is incorrect. I've known many Christians that do not feel the Bible holds all the answers and that there is much to be learned in the world.

    I predict a failure.
    The people they are trying to reach will be on line, not dialing an 800 number.
    Who uses their phone to make calls anymore?

      Arguably it is less controversial than 'The Clergy Project'.
