Shunda Lee was raised in a family that instilled in her a strong sense of Christian identity and morality, though not specifically following any particular denomination. But upon reaching adulthood, Shunda sought to explore the Christian faith in depth, particularly as a result of her sister’s deep dive into fundamentalist Christianity. However, a combination of the limitations of Christian theology, as well as the close relationships that she developed with a variety of non-Christian women, eventually led Shunda down a path to apostasy. Now a practicing criminal defense attorney, Shunda and I discuss her unique perspective on the Christian Church in America, as well as the growing organized Humanist community in which she’s been occasionally involved.
