On February 17, 2010 Rick London contacted celebatheists.com to alert the site to the specifics of his viewpoint on religious matters. The following is the text of the e-mail:


Dear CelebAthiest,


Though I must say, thanks, for your recognition, the details are not entirely correct; and, if misconstrued, I'll correct the best I can. I was born Jewish in Hattiesburg, Ms. In my early 40's I went through a short period with the Unitarian Church in rural Ms (of which I enjoyed...we had Christians, Athiests, Jews, Moslems etc at the congregation), and it was often more of a philosophical debate than anything else. I have probably defended athiests/and agnostics from time to time (publicly) and still would, as I believe they have been second class citizens far too many year in this (and often other) countries. As any true believer would state, I am open to the idea that I could be wrong in my beliefs, but not so in my actions, and for that I don't apologize. Everyone has the right to believe (or not believe) as they wish. To me it's no debate. It's all about action to me, not beliefs. So, if you want to set the record straight, I AM a believer; I simply am not a converter nor do I practice my faith with the idea that it is right for everyone; it is not. An athiest or agnostic has as much right to his/her lack of beliefs, as I do to my beliefs. Keep up the great work, and thank you for allowing me to have time. I was unable to work the WIKI page, but you are welcome to post this email.


Sincerely,


Rick London
