Storyline

Life story of Madalyn Murray-O'Hair, sometimes called 'America's most hated woman' because she firmly fought for the rights of atheists and against the omnipresence of religion in the USA. People talk about her while a narrator tells us the background and motives of Murray-O'Hair. Short clips of her are shown as well. Halfway through, the filmmaker starts focusing solely on the mysteries surrounding the end of her life, involving a disappearance and 1,500 golden coins.

The Story of Madalyn Murray O'Hair and her gruesome demise
24 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"An Atheist believes that a hospital should be built instead of a church. An atheist believes that deed must be done instead of prayer said. An atheist strives for involvement in life and not escape into death. He wants disease conquered, poverty vanished, war eliminated." - Madalyn Murray O'Hair

I came across this quote today and a google search lead me to Ms. O'Hair and then this video. I am an atheist and an apostate of evangelical Christianity, and this is my reason for suddenly having an interest in Madalyn O'Hair. I found this documentary to be a good starting point, giving her history, her mission and her unfortunate and gruesome demise. Like the previous reviewer said: 60 minutes is not enough time to spend on this subject, but it is a start. I was captivated by the investigation of her disappearance, but would have like to have heard more about her. Regardless of this it was an awesome documentary and will be recommend it to my friends. Unfortunately it only appears to be available here on youtube and no for ale on DVD.
