2. Julia Sweeney

Actress Julia Sweeney may still be best known for her androgynous "Saturday Night Live" character Pat, but she is building a name for herself as the country's foremost atheist entertainer. Her funny and touching one-woman show, "Letting Go of God," chronicles her life from her Catholic upbringing to her wrestling with belief and the Bible during college, during tough moments in her career, while her brother was dying of cancer, and after her own cancer diagnosis. Sweeney eventually settled on atheism and opened her show about the journey in October 2004. She has been working on a memoir, "My Beautiful Loss of Faith Story," and will release a CD version of "Letting Go of God" in September.
