About Paul Loebe

Paul Loebe was raised in a radical religious environment and joined the military under the auspices of Christian Dominion. During his first tour overseas Paul questioned his faith for the first time and, over the course of a couple years and a great amount of research, gradually accepted his atheism. Witnessing the unbridled state-sanctioned Christian proselytization and oftentimes discrimination by extreme Christians in the military Paul signed on with Justin Griffith who had started the Rock Beyond Belief movement. Ever since then, he has been involved in activism for the awareness of military atheists and governmental secularism in general.
