Former atheist, now an evangelist, to speak at church


William J. Murray, a plaintiff in the 1963 Supreme Court cas that banned prayer in public schools, will speak at 7 p.m. May 30 at Hampstead Baptist Church, 328 Hanover Pike, Hampstead.

Mr. Murray is the son of Madalyn Murray O'Hair, the Baltimore atheist who filed the suit that eventually resulted in the banning of prayer in the nation's public schools. Ms. O'Hair now lives in Texas.

Once vice president of the American Atheists, Mr. Murray became a born-again Christian in 1980.
