John Emerson Roberts (1853 – 1942) was a Kansas City, Missouri, success story. Arriving in 1881 as a Baptist minister, his developing ideas led him to abandon the idea of hell and become a Unitarian. Soon that became too limited for him and he decided to preach on his own as a freethinker. The local press eagerly followed his progress. While his intellectual journey was common in his generation, Roberts was unique in creating a “Church” of freethought. He lectured on reason and the errors of conventional religion for more than thirty years and sought to make Kansas City “a center of agnosticism” for the nation.
