  • More About Me
    I'm a recent ex-christian and a single mom of 2 boys. I am currently a senior in college majoring in social work. I am hoping to find peace with my recent belief changes, and hopefully meet more people in the same situation. I grew up in a very religious home, and I am still battling the whole "damned to hell" idea.

    Don't know how I feel about that right now
  1. Fall semester started this week. It's going to be a wild semester! 9 months until graduation! I can hardly wait!!'

  2. I commend you for your honesty here. Your struggles are immense, and have given you quite a bit of insight and strength. I understand your struggle with religion, as I also grew up in an extremely religious family and community, and it is very hard to continue believing in something that doesn't fulfill its promises, yet you find yourself unable to completely stop believing. Stick around and read what the folks post around here. They also have a lot of insight that will help you. You will find you aren't alone in your struggles and hopefully it will renew your inner peace.
  3. Welcome Dan! This site has really helped me with my recent deconversion! Hope you feel at home here!

      Welcome back!!!

  5. My cousin Amy Showalter just won tonight's round of The Winner Is on NBC! I'm completely beside myself with excitement!

  6. I know that feeling. I'm still attending church so that the Christians still in my family don't need to know that I deconverted. I think if I just stopped going to church completely, that would probably confuse them and might even make them suspicious. I do feel like I'm slowly building an escape tunnel. My main hope for escape is to find a job that will have me working on Sunday morning or on the night shift on Sunday nights, so that I would either be working during the church services, or sleeping because they would be going on during my bed time. Impickle, I don't think you need religio

      That's good. I hope that you have some fun now that they are gone. :)

      I hope so. At least a little respite from motherly duties.

      LOL BO good advice!! Well as chaotic as it surely was good to see you came out in one piece!

  9. Definitely look at counseling for yourself. You NEED to work through your deconversion and anger so it doesnt cause any unnecessary damage on you home life. And during this time you can seek advice on how to handle coming out or not coming out. Just don't make any sudden rash decisions. We can feel very passionate during this time in our lives and we just want to break free. I understand how you feel. But keep focus on how much you value your family. I truly believe if you and your wife love each other, you can work through it and come to an understanding eventually. It may take time a
  10. Ok, let me start with the part about your wife taking things at "faith value". Was there a time when you were strong in your christian faith that you also took most things the same way? Not all christians question it, and truly have that unshakeable faith. It IS very frustrating for us who do't believe. You are going to have to allow her to believe that way unless she wants to know, otherwise she is going to see you as a ranting lunatic. You have planted the seed of doubt so to speak. Now, when it comes to your actual relationship, non christian counseling may be a really good idea for y
  11. I would have slapped the dog shit out of him. I mean really? He didn't think that was gonna make you feel like a total prostitute? LOL What a dipshit! I would have been quite livid, so you are completely justified in feeling the way you did. Did you ever find out WHY he gave you money? I mean gosh, just gosh...
  12. Sunday is my preferred day for sloth, gluttony, and fornication.

      BO I am sure you walked uphill both ways in an ice storm.

      Yeah BO you're bad ass, I bet you were in your mid 30's and a single parent back then too.

  14. Ok, so lets say hypothetically you're talking about coming out as a non believer and being cut off financially? Either way you gain something for yourself. If you stay in the closet, you must suffer with your secret beliefs but have financial gain, but if you come out, you have your mental and emotional and freedom from religion but you have to suffer poverty and disdain from your family. So essentially this is the deal, you have to decide which personal gain means the most to you at this moment, if in fact this is the scenario, or look at the actual scenario in the same way. Also you need

      That sucks. Have better luck with your other exams. :)

      It was my failure, not the prof's. I didn't study enough. He's actually a brilliant teacher and makes it very interesting to those like me who find no thrill in it.

      That sucks, impickle.


      Really, BO? You'd sink to that?
