In 1963, America’s most famous atheist, Madalyn Murray O’Hair, won the landmark lawsuit filed on behalf of her son William that effectively banned prayer in public schools. Years later, Bill Murray became a Christian, and he now is Chairman of the Religious Freedom Coalition.

Bill tells of his life as a child, having just barely met his father before he left the family, being raised by his mother who was dysfunctional, unable to hold a job. Madalyn was recruited by a Communist while standing in an unemployment line, and she embraced the Marxist worldview, and hatred of God.

Later she noticed that the Pledge of Allegiance (which includes the phrase, “Under God”) was posted and recited in schools. As she discovered other practices in public schools, including prayer in a few situations, she began protesting and carried out her threat to remove Bill from school.

After she sent out a mailing detailing her views, others who hated God began sending her money enabling her to improve her lifestyle and develop her organization, American Atheists. The organization worked to remove God from public life, and filed a number of lawsuits, one of which led to the landmark U.S. Supreme Court ruling ending official Bible-reading in American public schools in 1963.

Bill was back in school after three weeks and continued his education. He tells how he came to Christ and began his ministry which includes daily visits to Capitol Hill to visit Senators and Representatives.

Bill Murray’s life story is told in the book, “My Life Without God” which has just been reprinted.
