FFRF member Diane Buckner of Georgia was reading the 2013 fiction book, Prayer, by Philip Kerr, when she came across the name of FFRF Co-President Dan Barker in the text.

From Page 24 of the paperback version:

“Coogan unzipped the bag and handed me a paperback book titled All the Possible Gods.  The author was Philip Osbourne. As soon as I saw it, I laughed.

‘Only an hour or two ago Ruth was giving me hell for reading this book. And several others like it.’

“‘Oh? Such as?’

“‘Dawkins, Hitchens, [fictional] Peter Eckman,’ I shrugged. ‘Sam Harris, Dan Barker, Daniel Dennett. . .’   

Coogan chuckled. ‘That’s virtually the whole pantheon of disbelief you have there.’”
