FULTON — Gale Fuller is a minister, but he doesn't believe in God.
He didn't pray as a Navy corpsman treating the wounded in World War II.
He didn’t pray when his wife of almost 25 years died suddenly of a heart attack, and he doesn't pray before meals, at weddings or during memorial services.
Fuller, an 86-year-old retired professor of clinical psychology, is a secular humanist.
Sometimes, he pins a red letter A to the lapel of his blazer to mark himself an atheist; sometimes he wears a small gold pin that represents the International Humanist and Ethical Union.
He believes in no higher power, only the independence and reason of human beings.
