  1. Thank you to all of you. I'll just try not to worry too much.
  2. Spot on. It is wrong and it is damaging. I tend to think more and more that Christianity of the Fundy or Fundy-like kind is a danger to mental health and well-being.
  3. Well I guess you'd hope they'd only speak in tongues to you when it comes to Je-sus so you wouldn't understand what they are saying... On a more serious note: It must be so difficult to communicate with them, ignoring or dealing with all the Bible/"spiritual" talk they throw your way.
  4. Hello dave, Thank you! Am I guessing correctly that this is only possible for personal blog posts, but not for forum posts? OTRR
  5. Dear all, I just realized my ExC posts are found when searching for my username on Google. Is there any way to prevent this? I can't find anything in the Account Settings. Have a great day, OTRR
  6. Thanks for answering. Seems like you are thriving and working on things that have remained difficult, which is a great approach. If I may ask, what branch of the "fold" do your parents adhere to?
  7. This! This makes me so happy -- for you, and for any girl or woman who'll read this and need to hear this to be able to make it out of their very own versions of male dominated cults. We can all do this. We're not less, we're not to be dominated by anyone, and above all, there' s absolutely no need to "submit"! Thank you so much for telling part of your story, mrspearl. Also, your writing is beautiful and powerful. How did your journey out continue? How did you rebuild your life? I have a friend who got a divorce and left the church, too, and nearly nobody ever asked or talked about her anymore. We're still close 17 years later and she's strong like a rock. We're now laughing about the craziness and the ridiculousness of it all. And I sometimes feel sorry for all those who never left and stil think they know it all.
  8. I now almost nothing about CoC. Do you have any advice on where to learn more about it? Other than Wikipedia?
  9. This made my day, ag_NO_stic!
  10. Welcome, mrspearl, and glad you found us. Wishing you all the best as you discover these forums. I can relate insofar as I always felt like women were second class citizens in church. No more submission! More power to us! I am looking forward to hearing more from you. OTRR
  11. Don't bee so funny! Welcome to the outside world, glad to have you here, Bug! OTRR
  12. Hi William, Welcome. What leads you to the assumption rejecting god is my only option? Best OTRR
  13. This sounds very sad and painful, mich. Does writing help you to process things?
  14. Thanks for your reply. Happy to hear that things seem okay right now. But please watch out for yourself. Do I understand correctly that he also deconverted?
